The Leo Stellium

A stellium is a group of planets all sitting together in the same sign or the same house.

In a Leo stellium, 3 or more planets will be involved and they will blend their efforts and cooperate. 

You can see a Leo stellium in the chart below.

The Sun, the ruler of Leo, lends the sign a glimmering magnetism, and Leo can’t help but express itself, putting its most attractive qualities on full display.

How to Read Your Leo Stellium

Not every Leo stellium is going to express itself in the same manner, and it could come through in different ways for you as it does for someone else.

How it externalizes this expansive energy within the different areas of your life will depend on the entirety of your birth chart. 

Below are some steps that can get you started reading your group of three or more planets in Leo.

1. Which planets are involved?

First, identify which of the planets are included in your Leo stellium.

This will reveal which pieces of your psyche are influenced by this passionate sign.

And it indicates which parts of your inner self will merge and work together in harmony.

2. Does it include your Sun or Moon?

If you have a Leo Sun sign or Moon sign, this is now more significant.

When your Sun or Moon is part of the group, the importance of this placement is brought up a notch.

This grouping of planets will have a significant impact and be an area of great sensitivity in your chart.

And, if the group includes both your Sun and Moon, your Leo traits will be turned up to high!

3. What house is it in?

Note the house or houses where the planets of your Leo stellium are located.

The houses will reveal which areas of your life will be influenced by this grouping of planets.

Where in life will your bright lion be most obvious?

4. Are aspects made to it?

Another piece of the puzzle to consider when analyzing your Leo stellium is any planetary aspects involved.

Aspects bring more complexity by offering clues as to how your stellium planets may interact with other planets in your chart.

The angles made by aspects will determine if they are friendly, soft aspects, or hostile, hard aspects.

Fifth House Stellium in Leo

The Fifth House in your chart is called the House of Pleasure and it represents fun, hobbies, blowing off steam, and non-committed romance.

If this group of planets also sits in the 5th House, then this is an extra significant placement.

The 5th House is Leo’s house, and this would make this stellium “extra Leo” and concentrate the creative energy of the lion even more deeply.

Transiting Leo Stellium

Your natal chart isn’t the only place where you can find a stellium appears in Leo.

Anyone can find a grouped, cluster of planets by looking at those which are currently moving throughout the sky.

In astrology, these moving planets are called transiting planets.

Transiting planets interact with the signs, houses, and planets in your own natal chart, and can bring about various changes to your life based on their position.

If you find a transiting stellium sitting on Leo in your chart, it could have the same effect on your life as it could if it were a natal stellium, though with an important difference.

This influence is temporary, and will only last as long as the transiting stellium does. 

Transiting stelliums have the potential to spark important changes, but their importance will decline as the planets involved move on and interact with the other areas of your chart.
