Suo moto is used in formal English and signifies "on his credo" or " on his creed", "moto" could be extended as meaning even to "belief" and "intuitive".Then it will sound like "on his own belief" or "on his own intuitive"

Suo motu, meaning "on its own motion," is a Latin legal term, approximately equivalent to the English term sua sponte. It is used, for example, where a government agency acts on its own cognizance, as in "the Commission took suo motu control over the matter." Example - "there is no requirement that a court suo motu instruct a jury upon these defenses." State v. Pierson
