Re: I am a leo but I am shy and insecure??

it all depends on what aspects affect the Leo energy in the chart...

Squares and oppositions in your chart are probably affecting your energy.


Post a chart!

Re: I am a leo but I am shy and insecure??

The first thing that I see of importance is that Mercury was retrograde at birth and is still so by progression. When it stations direct in the progressed chart, you will notice a difference in the way you begin to think about yourself. There are other factors that others will most likely highlight here that are equally important. It is as if you were in a cocoon preparing yourself for flight eventually. This will not last forever.

So you are saying it is as if I am preparing for a change right now? A change in how I see myself?

You are experiencing life and how you interact with it on a more introspective level at this moment in time. That certainly is not a negative, for you are aware of it and speaking on it at this very moment in time instead of allowing it to debilitate your efforts at communication. Our conscious waking state is always progressing; and as you begin to ask more questions and practice your ability of imbuing the gift you have to offer in this life, you will find that you will become more expressive in effort to deliver the souls intent as Mercury moves forward in your chart. Mercury, to me, is quite impressive for he delivers messages from beneath the conscious. He merely at this time in life is just preparing to deliver to the world his next message. Practice over coming your fear. Feel the anxiety, recognize it, and let it go. Feel it, breathe and let it go. It is just energy.

Here are some excerpts concerning a few stories of Mercury. I have found them to be helpful when it comes to understanding this planet~

Thanks astralrabbit. That's really interesting and that makes a lot of sense. So you are saying that me being more shy and insecure is more of a stage in my life?

Re: I am a leo but I am shy and insecure??

Not all Leo's are extroverted, it's a stereo type, just like other stereo types.. We are all unique and different... You Leo will manifest in certain areas, when your comfortable..

I'm a Leo, I have 4 planets in Leo, sun, moon, mercury and mars..
Everything about me screams Leo, yet I'm severely introverted.. I have been my whole life.. I'm 42, I'm not comfortable around strangers at all...

I express my Leo side, with and when I'm comfortable with my surroundings.
When your comfortable, and need your Leo energy, you will use it

Wow, that's a lot of Leo! Yeah guess that is a pretty common stereotype.. Good to know and thanks. Problem is sometimes I feel like an extrovert and other times an introvert and idk which I actually am..

Your both, nothing wrong with that...

When your comfortable, you will express your Leo energy, I think it's your cancer mars, and Saturn square, giving you the mix, but it's just who you are...
Be happy with it, it's what makes each of us unique.

My son is a 6th house Leo Sun conj Venus.When he turned 2 last year his prog Mercury went Rx which has delayed his speech affecting his ability to communicate.Now at 3yrs he is still not talking but yells and becomes frustrated.His 3rd house is Aries ruled and his Mars is in Gemini 5th house.He loves to argue with me even though he doesn't make sense and uses his finger to point at me.He also loves it when the drama talkshow hosts come on TV..loves to imitate them.Anyway I am pleased it has happened while he is young (Merc Rx) & still learning confidence rather than when he's older.

Re: I am a leo but I am shy and insecure??

Hi Julia,
Astrologically speaking from just looking at the chart pattern(splay), you have a more intellectual approach with knowledge in more than one topic.From looking at your house positions I can see that values are centered on nurturing others from seeing cancer on your second house, and the ability to work with others daily perhaps on a one on one basis with Libra on your 6th house cusp. And last but not least you have the sign of Aquarius on your 10 house cusp. In which others in society see you as more of an intellectual type that likes topics such as Astrology, metaphysics, and or things that concern humanity. Have you consider working with others as counselor while using Astrology or even psychology or both to assist others? I know your only 16 if my math is correct, so you have a couple years to figure that one out. In regards to your Sun sign in the 3rd house at birth, to me that would imply that your eager to entertain and be the one who bounces ideas off of others in your immediate family and then once you get comfortable with those ideas, you will then use your talents as a service to others when your Sun progresses into the sign of Virgo when you enter College or whatever type of schooling you choose, perhaps a school of Astrology?Anyways this has been my two cents of quick chart analysis, be well and yes learn to breathe.

Peace

Re: I am a leo but I am shy and insecure??

At age 16, all of these things are simply part of a life stage which we call adolescence. You should go talk to an adult about it---a parent, and older sibling, a school counselor....etc.

While astrology can be useful, your feelings are all heavily magnified by the hormone of youth, and by the fact that you brain has not even stopped growing. Between now and age twenty five you will actually get a lot more brain cells in your prefrontal cortex where all these thoughts and concerns are originating.

Right now, at your age, you don't even have enough brain cells yet to develop an understanding of how all this works. It will come, just go with the flow.

That's interesting! Yeah, I still have no idea what I want to do as a career when I am older, but that is interesting. I've never really thought of becoming a councilor, but in a way I could see myself being one if I get my own life sorted out enough by then lol.

Also, thanks StillOne that makes more sense actually, and Zarathu, technically yeah I know I know, I just wanted to see if there was an explanation using astrology as to why I am a "shy" leo.

While I am among the astrologers who ethically won't do chart work for children(and until you reach the age of 18 in the USA you are still a child), I have to say that I also find it unrealistic to specify that you are a shy person, while you are still in the throes of adolescence. While its been almost 50 years since I was your age, I experienced very much of my adolescence exactly as you are describing yours, and no one would have considered me shy and insecure by the time I was in my mid twenties, 10 years later.

In my opinion, you are simply struggling with situational issues that would easily be shown by your tertiary and minor progressed return charts(or others might use transits or planetary return charts). These times will pass and then you will move on with your life. Your natal chart will not say that you are shy and insecure. You need to look at situational circumstances, and at the same time try to be aware that shyness and insecurity are central themes of adolescence, and that often return to being central themes of life in your late 60's and later(where I am now).

Oh okay that makes sense.. Yeah situational issues maybe. Or maybe because I am simply a teen, but I just felt more insecure then most other teens are, also considering that I am a Leo and leos are supposed to be "the most confident" if them all. I was just wondering.

There are lots of happening that tend to shape our lives & personality. For a teen, life is just beginning & you are learning the stops signs in the adult's world. That itself takes a while to settle into. As a person I don't see shyness but caution definitely. Secondly you tend to be a little hard on yourself, critical technically but trust me with age you will groom into a fine charming lady. All the best.

Re: I am a leo but I am shy and insecure??

Thanks blackempress. Also, I have another question. Does my chart say that I am a person that is more reserved, or that is more outgoing? I'm just curious.
Also, some of you said that I could go into counceling other people? Is that the career my chart recommends I go into?

You're comparing what is going on inside of you to what you see on the outside of others.

They may be just as insecure as you are (if not moreso), whether it shows or not.

You only get to see what they want you to see.
