Saturn in Leo

If you have Saturn in Leo, you possess diplomatic, organizing, executive, and leadership ability along with a strong will. You tend to be self-reliant, conservative, and are extremely efficient. You may have difficulty expressing your emotions and your affections, which may make you appear cold and unloving. You need love, but may not know how to go about giving or receiving it, thus you may isolate yourself from others.

Your love is motivated by strong feelings of duty and responsibility and you show your love by taking care of business and doing what is required or by giving material things to loved ones instead of yourself, which is what they really want. On the negative side, you may be cruel and quick-tempered, jealous, and may resort to underhanded means to satisfy your ambitions. Heart trouble is possible with this position. You need to be admired for your ability to get things done efficiently and effectively.

Saturn in Leo is in its detriment because it is one of the two rulers of the opposite sign, Aquarius. You’re very strong willed, and probably have a highly developed ego and drive for power, but it’s your lovingness, humility, and your feelings for the other fellow that need the development. You may even have some physical and/or emotional blockage in your heart. You tend to be a law unto yourself, and need to learn cooperation and to adjust your strong ambitions to the needs of others.

If your Saturn is afflicted in Leo, it may indicate karma of having withheld love in the past. In this case you may have disappointments in love and with children until you balance the spiritual books. If you’re reserved or over-cautious, you could practice acting out or expressing your feelings more. As the Beatles said, "The love you take is equal to the love you make." Saturn returns to each sign once every 29 or 30 years for about a three-year stay. Saturn was in Leo from June 1917 to August 1919, from August 1946 to September 1948, from September 1975 to July 1978 and from July 2005 to August 2007.
