My Sun is in 3 degrees Aquarius. And it was a radical shift from Cap.
With Leo, its time to have fun. Its time to quit all that worrying about the future or what is to come(Cancer). Its time to enjoy "what is".
Leo attracts things to itself. So you could find yourself gravitating towards being the "performer". Confidence may increase . Just be sure you dont go overboard to being haughty and arrogant(which can easily happen).
In my case, its resulted in me avoiding anything that will tie me down long-term. I was not S ambitious as when Sun had progressed to Cap.
I also to really get into futuristic things. "Unimaginative" people just annoy me through and through.
Does Jupiter in my 1st house have anything to do with me putting on weight?
Is it weird that I don't feel like a Leo sun at all?
I feel my original signs Cancer sun ☀️ (Sexitle Saturn) Aquarius rising and Pisces Moon.
Do you know when the change will start?[/B][/QUOTE]
I find the progressed chart to be more "contextually" based. You will always be your natal. That will not change. The progression is your story so far or right now.
For instance. You still recall and even re-live periods of your childhood -maybe high school or certain moments in your life. And the relevant feelings they evoked(that is Cancer Sun).
But with your progressed chart, the attachment to the old is still there whilst looking at the present in a detached way. Maybsi reminiscing on your childhood whilst sitting in the office writing an E-mail to a client.
You are no longer living that life of chasing fireflies. But you are regurgitating how it was and are still attached to it. However the progressed chart is the adult you are now who has opted to conceal or suppress that part of u.
Comparisons of the progressed and natal merge the two . What pieces of whom you are(natal) are still painful or remind you of longing compared to the now you(progressed)
Most of it is deeply psychological and personal as you foster growth within that when triggered by transits can seem like it just came "out of nowhere".
The progressed chart and the natal interact to highlight the parts of u you want to develop vs those that have remained attached to what was.
So for instance, progressed Mars in Scorpio square natal Mercury in Leo examines thought patterns, learning mechanisms and what you retain.
When in Leo, Mercury is confident , optimistic, bold and assured of their own opinions. Often giving off an air of authority. Leo Mercury people often think themselves brilliant and have their ego attached to how they think, communicate and process things.
The square coming from Scorpio Mars suggests criticism and even (in extreme cases)ridicule for holding the views you hold. Which can have you scorn as it hurts your ego. You don't do well with criticism.
Asserting oneself when speaking often results (Mars) because you anticipate being challenged(Mars Scorpio). But it also has you on guard with what you hear. Being more vigilant of rumours and heresay as it can dent your image as an authoritative communicator.
You may say controversial things(Scorpio) that may make you unpopular sometimes. Other people seeing you as cruel and insensitive. But you feel like you are calling a spade a spade(Scorpio Mars)
But be careful with your tongue that you serve to cut away the fluff and lies and that take the time to research and be thorough on your opinions or views.
Often Scorpio can destroy with the tongue as much as they can offer enlightenment(Mars double edged sword). Because if you just fire what others consider to be " venom" to their ears, you face criticism from others who'll accuse you of making unfounded sweeping statements.
Not only will you be known as a cynical doomsday prophet. But people will no longer want ro listen and continually seek to oppose or contradict you. And this will do little to enhance your image as someone who has their pulse on the matter.
Transits on the two planets mentioned will further emphasize this dynamic.
