toxic leo mother.

TOXIC PARENTS (LEO MOTHER)

Leo (Sun, rising, moon) mothers are mostly going to feel toxic with earth/water sun sign children, rising or moon sign children more than Air/fire although they can feel some of the affects.

Leo mothers toxicity comes in the form of their emotions, reactions and expectations towards/of their children which can psychologically affect the children long term and their relationship with their mother.

Leo mothers are extremely prideful. Their pride comes in many different toxic forms.

1. Leo mothers have an inability to admit at fault pride. When a Leo mother has done wrong they are unlikely to give an explicit apology (unless they have a sign in their mercury/mars etc that is apologetic). They can show apology in other forms like suddenly being nice or trying to make conversation and gossip. Unfortunately for some children, they expect apologies because some Leo mother actions can be very hurtful & it’s only right they receive an apology. Leo mother is likely to refuse to give an apology because it lowers their rank on the hierarchy. “As a child, you should respect they are the mother, they will make mistakes but they shouldn’t have to lower themselves and apologise to you because mothers don’t do that” is their toxic mindset. They are incapable of admitting their mistakes.

2. Another toxic side of their pride is their inability to show emotional affection. Leo mothers can be too shy to show affection, if the “I love you”s haven’t always been said then it’s likely they never will. They can struggle giving a hug and comforting at times when is needed (they comfort in other ways) but to a sign who is more emotionally sensitive like water, they can find themselves and their emotions being ignored. Leo mums can also expect their children to toughen up and see crying and emotions as annoying/attention seeking and unable to see the side of the person going through this. Children end up hiding emotions or sharing it with others, not feeling a connection with their Leo mother.

3. Caring what people think is a pride leo mothers have. Leo can have expectations for children due to the fact that they think people are watching and even if there are people watching, they really care when they shouldn’t. Children make mistakes. Leo mothers care about popularity and children being a personal medal of success and perfection. A mistake a child makes hurts them in the “what will people think of me” sense. Which is toxic for children who just want to be showed the way.

4. Disrespect is a pride Leo have. Leo mothers can sometimes feel disrespected easily and become emotion. Leo mothers even when wrong feel like a child should shut up and not defend themselves. You simply pointing out their fault or why they’re wrong about something. Leo will feel disrespected and feel like you’re a rude child who has gone wrong and bad somewhere. Silencing children and not allowing themselves to defend themselves when they should is toxic. Leo mothers are very sensitive and have a warped view of respect. What they find respect is usually fear.

Leo mothers can be emotionally manipulative. Silent treatments are number one tactics with Leo mothers. When they are angry they have two ways of reacting:

1. it can come in the form of extreme petty anger where they throw verbal abuse and physical violence sometimes. The verbal abuse comes in the form of making people feel less than what they are, lowering their opinions of themselves through physical cusses or making them feel like idiots.

2. The other way of reacting can some in extreme silent treatment where they go multiple days not communicating with you. They will respond to what you ask, or ask questions directly to you. But mostly ignore you and so snide comments about you while you’re around so you can hear how they feel about you without telling you. They can also take their anger out on the people around them instead of you which can be toxic to other siblings around.

Leo mothers can be controlling. Especially towards their children and lovers, a lot of times they don’t like their children having a partner simply because it’s one less child to admire them also it takes away their own possession and some Leo mothers can view their children as their personal possession.

Leo mothers also do not allow the word no and can result to their silent treatments when a child says no to a favour they wanted done. They can behave like a child and throw their toys out their buggy and some children will result in saying yes for the simple fact of not wanting to be ignored by their mum.

One other toxic way Leo mothers can behave without them realising is through the company they keep. Leo mothers love popularity and can find themselves attracting a bad crowd or bad people who should not be around them or their children. Leo mothers will see this and ignore it or may completely not see it as they can be naive. Being a fixed sign they are unlikely to get rid of these friends unless they feel wronged but they’re likely to not get rid if they wrong them through their children. It can lead to children feeling like their mother is the popular girl at school while they’re the unpopular lot trying to fit in with her friends. Some children will find themselves growing resentment towards their mothers and being secretive especially since Leo mothers hide a lot of their lives from their children and lie a lot. Some children will grow up feeling insecure from their mothers constant verbal insults and how easy to disappoint and sensitive Leo mothers can be. The feeling of walking on egg shells can be high for some children in the household as they never know what mood their mother is in that day and even if she’s happy, they’re under whether she’s a bomb waiting to off.

I am a 22 year old, self taught astrologer from London. I’m a Sagittarius sun, Pisces moon, Virgo rising. I got into astrology when I first liked someone and struggled to read everything about them. Being the over thinker I am, I hated wondering because I’d always fill in the blanks with my own assumptions. I wanted everything to be as transparent as possible, seeing as reading them was like attempting to read hieroglyphics. (They’re a Taurus btw, hopefully you can understand my struggle now) Anyway, I searched “what are Taurus like in love", which led to “how to know a Taurus loves you” which led to “Sagittarius and Taurus relationship”, everything they said was literally a mirror of my partner and also true of our situationship. Long story short, it ended. But I got into a longer and better relationship. One with myself and astrology! Since then I’ve looked up everything I could on everything I could. Still learning and still growing. So I’m basically here to share my knowledge and growth with you along the way. I hope you enjoy. Thank you.
