In terms of karmic or evolutionary astrology, Leo represents the need to learn self-mastery and self-acclaim rather than expecting adulation and attention from others. It’s this lesson which we can all work on during the annual transit of the Sun through Leo in your horoscopes. The Leo 2020 Horoscope is about claiming the royal Leo throne, but the internal throne, not the one with the adoring crowds.
In psychological astrology, Leo is a zodiac sign which embodies joy, creativity and generosity. The Leo personality is a playful sign, a larger than life sign and one which simply loves to be loved. The astrological Sun is pure vitality, life-force energy, uplifting and dignified – but the Sun is also associated with ego and selfishness at times.
During the Sun in Leo transit and the Leo Horoscope, there’s a jovial vibe in general, and people feel more generous, more tolerant and more able to have fun. However, on the flip side of the Sun in Leo transit and Leo Horoscope, this is also a time when egos can run riot over the very best of intentions – Leo loves attention and doesn’t really care whether it’s negative or positive attention, so long as everyone’s talking about it.
The Sun in Leo transit is a good time to let your inner child out to play and to remember all the many blessings which surround you. Gratitude is a key theme of this transit, and you can use the creative skills of Leo to find all kinds of ways to thank others.
Working on your own skill set is also a good way to spend the Sun in Leo transit. Instead of seeking recognition or power, seek self-satisfaction and the happiness which comes from a job well done.
What Does the Sun in Leo Transit Mean for Each Zodiac Sign's Horoscope?
Each Sun sign will experience the Sun in Leo transit and Leo 2020 Horoscope slightly differently, and see the evidence in your horoscope. If you pay attention over the course of several years, you’ll probably notice how your astrological focus and attention tends to shift very gradually through the year – that’s the influence of solar transits.
Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Sun in Leo
Work on your creativity in this time of the year 2020, Aries. You’re not using the skills you have, perhaps because you always feel you’ve got something more important or more urgent to do. This Sun transit urges you to develop your artistic nature, and to use it as a method of self-expression. Take an art class or join a hobby group. Even if you think you don’t have an artistic bone in your body, you’re about to get a very pleasant surprise.
Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Sun in Leo
You tend to chase emotional and material security whenever you can, Taurus, but did you know that real peace of mind comes from within? Use the energies of the Sun in Taurus to shore up your own mental health. Practice positive self-talk or seek therapy to release traumas from your past. You can’t rely on other people or material things to be there for you always – so it’s time to learn to rely upon yourself.
Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Sun in Leo
You always have the gift of the gab during the Sun in Leo transit, Gemini, because in this horoscope the Sun illuminates your communication zone. This is also the zone which speaks to your inner teacher, however. Claim your inner throne by working to mentor or to teach someone else – not necessarily as a job, but in your own free time, just because you can. You can be someone’s fairy godmother in this way – change a life. You can.
Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Sun in Leo
When the Sun in Leo transits your money zone, Cancer, it’s also opening the doors and windows in your mind and bringing sunlight to your many hidden talents. These are your resources, just as much as your bank balance is. During this astrological transit, figure out which skills you’re under-using and resolve to do something about that. You’re much more powerful than you know, but you mustn’t keep hiding.
Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During Sun in Leo
When the Sun is in your own sign, you’re at the height of your astrological power, Leo. And it’s power which is the keyword during this transit. You have a great deal of personal power, but what about the power you wield over others? This is the time to check that you’re being a good boss, a caring lover, a considerate friend, a kind neighbor. Let your inner Sun shine on those around you, because you can be so inspirational when you want to be.
Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During Sun in Leo
The Sun’s power illuminates your spiritual zone, Virgo – and it’s to your spiritual gifts that you should now look. Work on developing your psychic or mediumistic abilities, or perhaps focus on dreamwork or your meditation practice. Spend time alone, just for you. Your zodiac sign loves to be of service to others, but to do that, you need a strong inner foundation first.
Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During Sun in Leo
You’re at your sociable best when the Sun transits Leo, because this warm, jovial transit illuminates your friendship zone, Libra.

Work with others to create a better outcome for everyone.
Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Sun in Leo
This horoscope and transit is definitely about self-mastery for you, Scorpio. You’ll feel ambitious, with the Sun transiting your career zone, but it’s important that you work on feeling fulfilled in your career rather than just seeking external praise. If you’re not doing a job which you feel is worthwhile, this is a good time to look for something more meaningful in your hard work. Your added confidence should make job interviews easy.
Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Sun in Leo
Joy comes from travel during this Sun transit, Sagittarius, it’s as simple – and as complicated – as that. If you’re a free spirit and can travel the world, get on with it! If by prediction, like most of us, you can’t, then find alternative ways to satisfy your wanderlust and your restlessness. Claiming your inner throne is about entertaining yourself, even in difficult circumstances. Banish boredom and recognize that there is always, always something interesting to do.
Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During Sun in Leo
This is a psychologically intense Sun transit for you, Capricorn, as the Sun illuminates one of the most sensitive areas of your chart. It’s a very good time to deal with past traumas, current pain, or fears and phobias. Drag things from the darkness into the light, so that you can more forward more freely in the long term. This can be a very emotional time, but you’re not alone. Reach out and accept help from others.
Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During Sun in Leo
The Sun is transiting your love zone, so this is one of the best times of the year for a wedding, engagement or serious romantic commitment. Your challenge, Aquarius, is to balance your need for freedom with your need for love. Work on maintaining your own identity within a loving relationship, but don’t forget that your loved one needs something from you too. Find some give and take which lets you both be happy.
Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Sun in Leo
The Sun is associated with health and vitality, Pisces, so this is a fantastic month for kicking bad habits, starting a healthy new lifestyle and honoring your mind, body and soul.

You have plenty of willpower during this transit, and lots of motivation too, so if you make small, sustainable changes, you should be able to adjust your lifestyle now.
