Uranus in Leo
Uranus is a good fit for Leo. I disagree that it is in detriment in this sign because some say that it is the ruler of Aquarius. Uranus represents such things as sudden breaks, originality, electricity and rebels. It is hot and dry by nature. The Sun, as administrator for Leo, is also considered hot and dry by nature. The only possible conflict I see is between the fixed nature of Leo (representing repetitive action) and Uranus's inclination for change. Some with this position have made technical advancements for the theatre and movie industry. It is certainly a great help to all those who want to be seen as unique in the world. Those with close aspects from inner planets to Uranus in this sign have a better than average chance of great achievement. Also, since the Sun is representative of Nous and Uranus is representative of the higher mind, it is indicative of those with a great vision and inspiration. But again, it is only likely that those with close aspects to Uranus here will be set as examples of this before the world.
In a diurnal chart, the heat and dryness are magnified. This would theoretically increase the "voltage". The natives are more dynamic and spontaneous and may be full of surprises and inspiration.
In a nocturnal chart, the cool and moist of night would theoretically inhibit the process of hyper-individualization.
