However, this placement also brings certain challenges. Their expressive nature might sometimes be perceived as overwhelming to others. They can be seen as excessively passionate or expressive, which might not be well-received by everyone. They might also tend to dominate conversations due to their intense focus on self-expression.

Furthermore, being governed by the Sun, these individuals can sometimes struggle with being overly focused on their own ideas and thoughts, making it difficult for them to consider other perspectives. They might also exhibit stubbornness in their viewpoints, given Leo's fixed nature.
