Our world is experiencing a crisis of character at the top, as authority figures are mired in drama, infighting, and complicit silence. Between 2017 and 2019, change-making eclipses are falling in power-to-the-people Aquarius and courageous Leo. Your zodiac sign gives you a unique set of leadership traits and abilities—ones that the world could benefit from now.
According to astrology, your Sun sign determines the essence of your personality. The Sun’s position in your natal chart will reveal how you approach leadership and authority. The bold Sun is also the planetary ruler of proud, theatrical Leo, the leadership-driven star sign of courage and character. But no matter what astrological sign you’re born under, you have a unique gift that can be cultivated into powerful leadership.
Solar energy radiates outward: Think of sunbeams flooding the daytime sky. What is the special light that you shine into the world? What is your destiny or purpose—and what mark can you leave behind?
The Sun also governs our pride, and since the ego falls under its domain, when unbalanced, those beams can produce arrogance, swagger, or a mask of false confidence. It’s a thin line between being take-charge and being tyrannical. The Sun, after all, is the center of our solar system.

Understanding your Sun sign is key to navigating your self-expression as a leader. While you can’t change the sign you were born under, you can adjust the dials to help strengthen the positive traits. Every Sun sign has challenging aspects: These can be turned into strengths by gaining awareness of them—not trying to make them go away. It’s all in the way you use it.
