Mars in Leo - Mars Signs

Mars Leo guys and gals burst on the scene, and love the spotlight.  The Mars will is strong in this fire sign, and that makes for a passionate actor on the world stage.

What's unique about Mars Leo among the Mars fire signs is that it's fixed, so the fire is sustained.  This Mars keeps the inspiration fires burning, long enough to see creative expression brought to fruition.

Mars Leos crave attention, and some might take a turn on the boards or in front of the camera.

  These are the ones who photobomb all the pictures at the reunion, and it's funny because they are just so smiley and cute.  On the other hand, it can be annoying, or even pitiful. 

Big Impact

Mars in Leo makes a vibrant impression, with a strong physical presence. You are big and showy, with great self-confidence.  You go far with charisma and self-promotion but have to make sure you have the goods to back it up.

You sometimes have a kingly or queenly sense of entitlement that guides your actions. This can make you demanding, but also propels you toward your goals.

What Mars Wants

You are dramatic and expressive, and like everything you do to have your unique stamp. You are here to make your mark!

Mars is all about what lights your fire and gets you moving.  The Mars Leo guy doesn't bother with activities that don't recognize his greatness.  He wilts in a situation where he is treated as unremarkable, and interchangeable with others.

This is a Mars related to children and the Fifth House, and it's one that throws tantrums at times. 

My husband has this Mars and he quickly loses interest if he's disrespected in any way.  He's generous and loves to help people, but will abruptly change if his time and talents are taken for granted.

Life as Adventure

You're motivated by grand passions, and enjoy putting what you're doing into an epic narrative. You act generously and have a gift for encouraging others to take creative risks.

You know how to bring the hidden gold out of people, so they shine like you do. Your warmth is contagious, and your big heart obvious to those you meet.

Kingly or Queenly

You're attracted to regal lovers that make you look good. You bring a sense of play to the bedroom.

You can be bossy and willful, but that comes with the insistent dynamism of your leadership style. You're known to overdo it or throw your weight around when opposed.

But you've got the ability to follow-through, and pursue your ambitions with gusto. You work hard and play hard, and have a good chance of reaching your dreams.

You could easily become one of those difficult bosses, and your pride may keep you from seeing it.  If you're getting a lot of resistance at work, look into that, and see if there's resentment building.

Burn Out and Exercise

You'll want to watch out for burnout and burning the candle at both ends, phrases that relate to fire signs and their ways.  I've noticed that fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) can overdo the action, and will then feel dried up, brittle and world-weary.

So balance all the ambitious action with time spent refilling the well. 

As for staying fit, Mars Leos can be drawn to performance type exercise like dancing.  Some with this sign are the ones that dress for success when working out and make sure they're seen.  That might mean jogging along a busy street or dancing in a place with a visible storefront.
