When Dua Lipa isn’t dropping club hits like “Don’t Start Now” and “Levitating,” you can find her serving looks on the runway, showing off some PDA with boyfriend Anwar Hadid, and posting adorable pics of her puppy on Instagram. The singer has steadily become a prominent figure in pop music, taking home the best pop vocal album for her dance-synth pop record Future Nostalgia at the 2021 Grammy Awards. Between her constant A+ style choices and her music that you can’t help but want to dance to, Dua’s definitely carving out her place as a superstar.
So what exactly do the stars have to say about her? Based on her social media and musical footprint, it’s easy to see that Dua is a fire starter. For the astrology-lovers who are wondering what the iconic Leo has hiding in her birth chart, POPSUGAR sat down with professional astrologer Nautica Flowers to take a peek at the fire sign’s zodiac.
The Big 3
Your big three is made up of three of the most personal planets: your sun, moon, and rising. These portray some of the most intricate details of your birth chart, namely your core identity, your emotional responses, and how you assert yourself to others. The planets in your birth chart help you better understand your personality. When you know your birth time, you’re able to see both your rising sign and your houses. Your houses denote the areas of life impacted by the planets in your chart. Lucky for us, Dua’s birth time is available on the internet, so we’re able to dive deep into her rising sign.
Your sun represents the core identity, something that’s most likely to be visible to others once they get to know you. Dua is a Leo sun, and these signs are known to be creative and love the spotlight, which is pretty on brand for the “Hotter Than Hell” singer. As it turns out, the singer has had her eyes on stardom since childhood. “Leo is the sign of fame, creativity, and talent, which perfectly aligns with Dua’s lifelong love of performing,” Flowers told POPSUGAR. “Leos live to be at the front of the stage, and from a very young age, Dua began performing shows for her families and friends.” Leo suns are also extremely warm and confident, and the singer’s Instagram, which is full of modeling photos, is testament to her fiery self-assurance and bold attitude.
In your birth chart, your moon represents your emotional identity. This includes how you respond emotionally and how you handle your feelings. Dua’s moon rests in Cancer territory. Cancers are known to be sensitive and highly intuitive with their emotions as well as other people’s. This placement implies that she’s nurturing and caring for others, and she wants others to feel safe at all times.
This sign is also ruled over the fourth house of family and roots, which implies she’s family-oriented. “She grew up watching her parents work hard,” Flowers said. “A perfect display of this is her first ever song written as a young child, which was dedicated to her mother.”
Your rising sign denotes your most outward personality. This sign is most obvious when you first meet someone and how they assert themselves in social situations. Dua is a Libra rising, and these signs are typically socialites who value the relationships they have with others. Libras are diplomatic and aim to keep the peace with others. These signs are all about aesthetics and beauty, which often leads to careers in fashion or art. This explains why Dua began her career as a model before her music career took off. Flowers also adds that Libras…
