Leo is the most passionate, zealous and driven out of all the zodiac signs. If you’re a Leo, you know well of your unharnessed energy that fuels your life and makes you a natural leader. 

There is an astrological placement called Mars in Leo which can turn you into a force to be reckoned with. Your leader-like qualities will shine, you will be more committed to your goals and will emanate an aura that’s hard to come by and miss.

In this article, I will be discussing this astrological placement and you’ll see how it can change your life.

What is Mars in Leo Anyway?

Mars is Leo’s ruling planet and greatly influences Leo’s leadership skills, decision-making skills, ambitiousness and protectiveness. 

Mars doesn’t just “gently” go through Leo, instead, it barges in and charges through. When this happens, all of Leo’s characteristics become heightened. I’m talking about colossal levels of energy here. 

As a result, people get to see Leo as being an extraordinary leader, who commands people by their presence alone. Imagine Napoleon’s soldiers yelling “long live the Emperor!” merely at his sight. That’s what Mars in Leo energy can do when it is unharnessed.

The Emperor Tarot card shares a lot in common with Mars in Leo. I’d recommend you read that article as well.

Mars in Leo Personality

I’ll keep it simple here, you emanate a vibe that is hard to miss. You always make a strong first impression, and when combined with your confidence and self-promotion, it can be a lethal combo!

I have noticed a profound trait in Leos, which seems hidden at first, and then suddenly comes to light. It’s their ability to cause drama. 

You’re dramatic and expressive and have been sent to this planet to leave your mark. You won’t bother with anything that doesn’t light up your fire. Passion and determination are your fuel. Nothing that’s ordinary excites you. You’re always out to seek more glory.

Finally, you’re no fan of being underappreciated. You don’t bother with anything that doesn’t light up your inner fire. Situations where you will be considered expendable, or interchangeable are of no concern to you.

Mars in Leo Woman 

If you thought that this “surge of charisma” was only a Mars in Leo man thing, think again. I’ve seen that when Mars passes through a Leo woman, she becomes a force to be reckoned with. 

You’ll immediately notice a Mars in Leo woman when she enters a room. Even when every other astrological placement in her chart dulls her aura, Mars alone will bring out her best.

She will leave a lasting first impression on everyone and will be treated like royalty. An air of grace and respect can be felt surrounding her. I truly love such a woman, as she controls everything that happens in her surroundings.

These women are confident in their daily dealings, no matter what the “dealing” may be. They emanate an aura that is hard to ignore, with magnetism that can make anyone bend to their will. 

Finally, these women have a strong sense of purpose, almost like a calling that drives them toward excellence. They’re born leaders who take risks because of sheer determination and grit. Never call her “bossy”! She’s “the boss!”

Life is an Adventure

One major aspect of Leo’s life that I’ve seen is a love for everything grand. Leo wants to live extravagantly. As a Leo, when Mars passes through your zodiac, you’ll be motivated by exuberant passions. Putting everything into an epic narrative comes naturally to you. 

You don’t just take risks yourself, but also want your people to do the same. Your warmth is contagious and people like to confide in you. 

As I see it, they want to have the advantage of not just knowing you, but also want to gain knowledge from your experiences.

I’d recommend reading my article on future zodiac signs for 2024 to get an idea about how will the next year treat you as a Leo

Relationships with Mars in Leo

A Leo with Mars going through it attracts people who are on the same level as them. What I mean is that you as a Mars in Leo will be getting tons of attention from people who are just as courageous and dynamic as you are.

I have seen this commonality in many Leos who are more determined due to this astrological placement. You will be on the hunt (get it?) for a romantic partner who is just as driven and quick-thinking as you are.


In my opinion, your zodiac is the only one that can burn a candle on both ends and still not worry. This is because of your inner leadership skills. But even your leadership can become dull if you don’t take good care of your health.

To stay fit, you must eat a healthy diet. And before you think that “I can do without it”, remember that a healthy diet powers your mind and body. So eating a balanced diet is a prerequisite.

Positive Traits in Mars in Leo

As I see it, the world's a stage for you and everyone is anticipating every move that you’ll make. This is your moment to shine and your self-assuredness and determination will take care of it. 

You don’t suffer from a “main character syndrome” where you believe that the entire world revolves around you. Finally, you will also be the liveliest in any friend group, unless another fire sign ruled by Mars enters the fray!

Negative Traits in Mars in Leo

That main character syndrome that I talked about above becomes a reality here. You will think that everything around you is happening just because you are in it. You’ll want to be pleased and be taken care of in every situation, no matter the cost.

Another negative trait that I think can happen to you is your heavy reliance on “outside validation”. This can happen when you become obsessed with your image in people’s eyes and it distorts your reality. 

Summing Up Mars in Leo

With Mars in Leo, your determination, resilience and leadership skills will be at their peak. You’ll be getting a lot of eyeballs, tracking every move that you make. People will respect you, and will be (more than) willing to follow you even blindly.

All you have to do is to make sure that you have the goods to back your leadership up.
