Return of the King
At approximately 6:00:52 AM on July 22nd the Sun moves to Leonine Point or 0’ degrees of Leo. At this point the SUN IS IN LEO and has returned home. Sun in Leo is dignified; it has come back to its home sign and therefore sitting on its THRONE as I like to say. It is the Annual Solar Return of the King or Heart of Solar System, Beings, and Life.
Occupying the Throne
IN LEO the Sun is considered all powerful, in the sign of Leo. The Sun in Leo is a wonderful time of the year in my opinion (perhaps having Venus in Leo is an inkling as to why for me, lol!) Leo is the real midsummer for during its transit through this sign the Sun apparently from the earth’s viewpoint in the Northern Hemisphere reaches its highest point.
This would be the opposite in the Southern Hemisphere. 15’Degrees of Leo is the exact midpoint by whole-sign calculations and thus the sun reaches this point in the Sagittarius Decan of Leo, or as I like to say the KINGS THRONE or JUPITER’S HEIGHT or the Seat of the GOD’s SUN. It is also doing this time of the year that the angles from the rays of the Sun produce the most “Heat” apparently. So, we can see why the sign LEO is so HOT, and full of Life!
The sign Leo is represented by the LION or LIONESS, it is indicative of the KING or QUEEN, or the MONARCH. The lion is an apropos symbol for this vibrant sign for we all know the Lion is considered the “King of the Beast, or King of the Jungle”. As well the sign represents “royalty”. The association with royalty and ruler ship has long been a hallmark of the sign Leo. As well another symbol for Leo is the Heart, for Leo rules the heart and is indicative of matters of the heart such as love affairs and romance.
“Leo is fixed fire sign- an interesting paradox. Perhaps the best way to describe fixed fire is in terms of its ruler: the Sun, the constant and predictable source of light and life at the centre of the solar system, around which all the planets revolve. Leo is associated with the metal gold and with incorruptible, eternal fire. This is exactly how planets in Leo function best – when they are radiating their unique life force for the benefit of all. Leo has great warmth, an ability to shine and an immense generosity. There is something very sunny about Leo. There is also a natural dignity and nobility, an extravagance, a love of luxury and of doing things in style. Leo rules the back and the heart, and the back is to do with being vertical, isn’t it? You can often recognize a Leo from the dignified way they carry themselves, as if they had a crown on their heads. Sometimes there is something very catlike and delicate about the way they walk.” ~Clare Martin~ http://www.astro.com/mtp/mtp92_e.htm
Leo also rules (or represents) Love, Romance, the Heart, the Spine, the Upper Back, theater, drama, fun, the stage, parties, relaxation, hobbies, speculation or gambling, games, and sports to name a few. Leo is ruled by the Sun and there fore is the sign associated with gold, the ego (Negative or Positive) or divine self, the true or inner self or inner child. Leo is the 5th sign of the Zodiac and thus the natural occupier of the 5th Cusp or 5th House of affairs of the Heart, Children, Creativity, Fun, Romance and etc.
So, the 5th House in an Astrological Chart carries a “Leo” like energy no matter the sign or planets in that house. Where the sign Leo falls in one’s natal chart will show how Leo “Colors” the life matter or “House” that it rest in.
Leo in the Houses of the Zodiac
For example, Leo in the 1st House of the Self, Personality and Physique will “color” the person’s personality. So they would be Leo-like even if their Sun sign isn’t Leo. They would be flamboyant, bossy, affectionate, enthusiastic, a leader, romantic, temperamental, dramatic, warmhearted, creative, pompous, loyal, a show-off, outgoing, generous, egocentric, stubborn, self-center, a party animal, playful or immature, or possess a child like innocence about them, “regardless” if the sun was in Leo or not, but the sign being the Ascendant or Rising Sign.
Another example would be Leo in the 2nd House of Money, Values, Providence, Appetites, and Survive, will “Influence” the way the person spends or earns money, gives or values gifts, the moral codes they value vs. learned, how they survive, their taste buds, and the possessions they gather and convent. The person would love to spend money, or earn it, they utilize it to provide for their children, or lovers, they are gracious romantics and love buying their beau gifts to honor them as well as receive such tokens of esteem. Their self identity is tied up in their financial worth.
Leo in the 3rd House of place would influence the way a person speaks or communicate, their thought processes or how they experience their relatives and neighbors or it would describe them. So people with Leo in the 3rd may be writers of children’s book or romance novels, or their siblings or relatives may be very dramatic or fun loving. Those with this signature think highly of themselves and their children especially the 1st born.
Leo in the 4th House would describe a person whom comes from a warm-hearted or ego-centric family life. They “feel” (4th House is indicative of Cancer, the Moon and thus Feelings) that they are the KING, or QUEEN of their HOME, the Bed Room, or the Family. The domesticated Parent or Nurturing parent maybe dramatically or very playful, spry or fun-loving, with Leo in the 4h Place of the Home, Family, Domestic Situation, Women, Nurturing and Parenting.
Leo in the 5th will show how a person loves to play games, loves hobbies and possess a great creative ability or artistic talent that they love, and are very enthusiastic about. Speaking on enthusiasm, which Leo is the sign of; Leo in the 5th Place is highly enthusiastic towards having children, being romantic, and relaxing.
Leo in the 6th House of Work, Health, Hygiene, Service, Routines, and favors we can apply Leo’s exuberant energy to those key words. Leo in the sixth Loves to work out and be healthy as well they often seek job opportunities that revolve around their creative expression or the entertainment business. As well to note the 6th House is the house that describes illness that comes about due to the neglect of health, hygiene, and working out, so with Leo here it represents back and spinal issues as well as heart and self esteem issues due to the lack of a healthy diet or exercise or positive routines in a person’s life.
Leo in the 7th Place is the “Loving Partner” signature, for people (Aquarius Risings and Suns) with Leo in the 7th Place Love to be married, to be in a partnership and love their close personal relationships, such as best friends, to death. Commitment makes their hearts sign, and loyal and true commitment even to higher heights. With Aquarius opposing this Leo in the 7th it is no wonder that when these relationships end they are EXPLOSIVE!!! Leo in the 7th is loyal and committed to any contractual agreement they enter and expect the same. Those with this signature tend to try to be the Boss in their relationships, and need to find harmony and balance in a relationship in order to function healthy in it. Leo in the 8th place is the death by Leo like issues, such as heart attack, heart disease, or spinal disease or chronic back issues.
Leo in the 8th is those that evolve from the experiences and lessons of love and love affairs, and from having children. Those with this signature can experience the death of their children or lovers, and as well may find themselves in debt due to romances, and lovers. Often this can mean that one shares resources with a romantic partner as well they receive an inheritance or legacy from their fathers or via their children. This signature (Capricorn Risings and Suns) needs to watch its eagerness to utilize credit and get tied up in loans. Often they go in debt because of their children as well. Leo in the 8th are those transformed by love or by their lover or transform their lovers or children, they are also Lions of Sex and have a hearty, healthy and very vivacious sexual appetite. They tend to be very playful and dramatic lovers.
Leo in the 9th Place influences how a person views those they consider foreigners, or foreign culture or life or philosophy, it produces a great love and fondness of long distance travel, vacationing in foreign lands, and dealing with them on any level. This is often a signature for those that tend to find love in distant lands or with those whom may have been raised in a different culture, nation, land, city, state, religion, or philosophy. Those with this configuration (Sagittarius Risings and Suns) are e lovers of philosophy or religion, as well often have great rapport with their in-laws.
Leo in the 10th Place can be a very powerful placement, these individuals have a lion’s appetite for power and governing. This placement can illuminate a loving father figure or disciplinary parent as well as a father that has power, influence or position in life, or a love for those that do. Leo in the 10th Represents a powerful reputation and status, those with this configuration (Scorpio Risings and Suns) often are known or famous in their careers, as well many are great actors or thespians, and as well they tend to have a reputation as great lovers.
Leo in the 11th place influences a person’s friends, associations, organizations they tend to gravitate towards, their goals and wishes, as well as their relationship or description of their father’s side of the family or older honorable acquaintances. Leo in the 11th are people that pursue their goals and dreams like a lion, they love their friends and are the truest friends. They tend to associate with organizations that help children, and as well often date or become involved romantically with their friends. Leo in the 12th influences how one expresses their ego, here the ego is hidden, or reserved.
Leo in the 12th also reflects a person whom can become undone by their ego or when acting egotistically in a negative way. These individuals have powerful imaginations and are very good a being the administrator or power behind the scene or throne. They have a gift for acting or theater as well as art, dance, music and water sports. Often with Leo in the 12th these individuals have psychic connection to their children, or a creative psychic ability expressed wherever the sun is in their natal chart. Those that have Leo in the 12th (Virgo Rising and Suns) often are late bloomers or it takes time for them to show or act out their true selves because the Sun in the 12th is obfuscated, and thus they tend to have struggle or difficulty in their teenage to young adult life with finding their purpose or expressing it without negative self esteem issues.
Now of course Planets in Leo add to that colorization and where ever the sun is in the chart will express and add on to this too, as well as the “exact” aspects to the Sun in the chart as well.
For example, a Sag Rising has Leo in the 9th Place of Abundance, Luck and Mental Expansion, if the Sun is in , say Capricorn, this makes the person a 2nd House Sun, and thus they will have heavy consideration towards providing a legacy or concerns with debt and credit because their SUN (True Self, Identity, Ego, Divine Self, Purpose, Enthusiasm) is in the House of Money, Values and Survival, yet issues concerning money and how one saves it for a rainy day, for their legacy how they borrow and repay it are a central theme in this person’s life for the Sun in the 2nd house is the Ruler of the 8th House where Leo is and therefore expresses Leo and the 8th Place via the 2nd House and it’s life matters. Thus Sag Risings are dead serious about their children’s wellbeing and making sure they leave something for them behind.
Leo = Children or the First Conception /First Born Child
“Leo is about the Kids” ….
Children and the First Born/Conception; Leo is the sign of children universally; however it describes the first conception, whether born or not, the conditions surrounding it as well. Leo describes the first born child. It is no wonder that there is a lot of concentration on the idea of the “FIRST BORN” whom is generally associated with the one whom inherits the family legacy, or takes over as the Head of the Family, or the most loved or honored. Normally the first born child is such a joy to experience, they are indeed the first children of their own that people experience. The bond of love and connectivity to the first born child is a significant matter in culture and is universally acknowledged on earth. Thus being the sign of children it is also the sign of youthfulness and is associated with fun and creativity. Children are a universal symbol of fun and creativity as well. Where Leo is in the chart will show where you can be like a child for better or worst. Childhood itself is representative of a time of learning and creativity, of wonder and amazement of unconditional love, and this is what Leo represents. Leo also represents other things and activities associated with children, like games, playing and toys.
Leo = Romance, True Love, Lovers, and Love Affairs
Love and Romance (Leo is the sign of TRUE LOVE or UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, not Material love, or Love of things, possessions, or valuables, which is Libra/Taurus i.e. Venus) Leo is very promiscuous, and also the Sign of Casual Sex and One Night Stands! LOLOL…So planets in this sign can really define one’s perspective on those matters. Leo is unconditional Love and describes how romances and love affairs start. It is of no coincidence it is symbolized by the Heart, which is the universal symbol of love. Now in the matters o f dating and love affairs, when it comes to first impressions Leo’s like to be surprised, they are attracted to what is “different” from the norm, as well when it come to generally dating the Leo actually appreciate being “over the top” and loves to go out on PLENTY of dates., as well as “out there” as they may seem they keep their sexuality under wraps and save it for the bed room, of which you will get to really see a Lion Roar.
Leo = the Ego, Inner Child, True Self, Divine Person
Ego and Divine Self (Leo is indicative of the Ego. Not the negative connotation associated with the ego but all of it, the good bad and ugly of it. It represents one’s identifying traits or how they identify themselves. It represents the unfiltered or true self. Thus unfiltered, it is the Divine Self, that part of a person which loves unconditionally, and is full of life, and purpose. Where Leo is will also describe how one uses that life matter for their purpose in life. Ego is such a powerful word and represents some powerful images, many negative, however it is widely known in esoteric circles that the Ego is connected to the Divine Being or the Higher self, that part of us which is our truest direction, or idea of being. So for purposes here in this writing, know, that LEO means the divine being or Divine Spark in all of humanity. As a child we are unfiltered, and raw and full of bursting energy, that part of us which is perpetually happy, forever young is the energy of Leo and the house or life matter and planets in Leo will show how we express just that, a youthful, spry, fun, and warm loving energy of our true self and divine spark.
Leo = Fun, Relaxation, Creativity, Risk and Play
Leo is Fun and Creativity, it is Games and Playing and Play time. Leo represents the essences of what being a kid or creative is all about. Thus why recreation and hobbies are inactive of Leo for they are avenues of easy expression of our true self and creativity. When at play we often are our unfiltered UN blocked true selves. So toys, Games, Playing, and simply pure fun are all Leo. As well because of the fiery extrovert power of Leo we tend to take risk when at play because we are so “free” during these Leonine activates, and thus with risk comes the possibility of gain or injury (Taurus or Scorpio Midpoints of Leo and Aquarius)
Leo = the Sun
Now Leo is ruled by the SUN, let’s talk about that!
The SUN is the center of our galaxy, the producer, and giver of life as we know it. It is the single most important thing in our existence. I don’t have to go into why that is here, for I know that every “creature” living knows this.
The Sun represents universally Life, Light, Love, and Divinity; it is represented in symbolism by a circle with a dot in the middle. The circle is “spirit”, and the dot in the middle is the “individual or the one”. This is also represented by the Ego, or the I AM, or the I.D.
The Sun is rules the Heart, Spine and Upper Back and thus all the functions and organs of the Heart, Spine and Upper Back. Issues with those organs are often associated with the aspects to the sun, natal, progressed or via transits.

Leo personality traits can be explained by breaking down Leo holistically in the astrological viewpoint. Leo’s are affectionate because they have Sagittarius the sign of Abundance and Extraordinary in Leo’s 5th Place of Love. Leo’s are known to be powerful leaders because not only is Leo in the 1st but because the sign of Power is in the House of Status in Leo and that is Scorpio. Leo’s
The Heart of Fire
Leo is a fire sign and the 2nd in the Fire Sign Trine or Triangle. It is the LOVE of Aries for it is Aries 5th Place.
The Mid-Point of the Fire Signs (Fire Love Affair and Ego Expression) Leo is the 2nd of the Fire Signs after Aries. It is the Middle point between Aries and Sagittarius, there for since all the things it represents can be and often is the midpoint or balancing point between Arianian and Sagittarian themes. Love or the divine self is the balance of the physical self (Aries) and the philosophical self (Sagittarius.) As a fire sign Leo is very extrovert, energizing. Leo “easily” can blend with the energy of the other fire signs , Aries and Sagittarius, therefore, although, not the sign of War, Leo’s benefit from such endeavors because War or ARIES is the 9th Place or Expansion or Benefit or Fortune of Leo, and as well not “the” Sign of war but “A” sign of War.
Why do I say that? All fire signs are signs that deal with War, but only Aries is the Sign of War. Aries is the Natural Born Leader, however Leo is the Divine Leader, the Loved Leader, the Fatherly Leader, the Heroic-leader, the administrator or dictator, one whom commands force of character, of self will. Sagittarius is the Philosophical Leader, the Experienced Leader, one that commands by knowledge and experience. Aries is the Leader, the first, the head, the one, or one whom commands by force or order. So, when looking to see what type of Leadership sign Leo is, we look to where Aries is in the Leo Chart, which is the 9th Place. (Fortune, Luck, Long Distance Travel, Foreigners, Mental Expansion, Religion, Philosophy, Personal Philosophy, Higher Courts, Judges, Law, College, Professors, Adult or Higher Education, the In-laws, Abundance, Expansion, Large, Upper Legs, Thighs, Hips, Sciatic Nerve, Liver, Skin, publishing, mass communication, mass media, broadcasting, and horses)
Let’s look at the motif that a lot of our great leaders have been depicted in history as being on Horses, or having a symbol or emblem of the Lion or Sun. That the Golden Haired Sun god or Hero or Warrior as a symbol of the Leader we all Love ( Aries = Leader, the 5th Place of Aries is Leo = Love, or the Loved Leader when you put Leo to the ascendant or the focus of the subject matter. )
Leo’s love Sagittarius! You didn’t know? Sagittarius is the 5th Place of True Unconditional Love for Leo. This means that Leo’s love their children a whole lot, and some could say too much, if there is such a thing when pertaining to one’s children. They desire a lot of children normally. Leo’s, especially the Risings are very open and often do have children with foreigners or in foreign lands or during their years in late high school to college. I know at least 4 Leo Risings that have giving birth to their 1st born in college, either in class, on campus or in their dorms. Dig Dat! 361
The Psychology of the Lion (Leo)
Speaking on how Leo’s love Sag let’s explore the whole psychology of the Lion.
We know the personality of Leo is exuberant and dramatic. We know they can be very bossy, prideful, egotistical, loving, creative, all the things that Leo is, even to the physique of looking and acting regal or pompous or dressing flamboyantly.
When it comes to money the 2nd Place of Leo, we look to Virgo to describe the energy Leo expresses in the life matters of finances, self worth, values, possessions, survival, appetites, taste buds, providence and the morals one come to value. In other words when it comes to those things Leo’s (Especially the Risings) tend to be a Virgo in this area of life or Virgo like. They will be conservative about their finances, acknowledging or cataloging or listing where every penny is. Leo’s are picky eaters and persnickety shoppers. Hard to be sold, they absolutely know how to find a deal. Leo’s have a very congenial style of communication.
They are balanced thinkers, and are some of the best romantic writers around with Libra in the 3re Place. They are fair-minded when it comes to their relatives, siblings and neighbors and are very likely to date someone from their neighborhood or in association with her neighbors or relatives. Their motto is “Nothing but the Best” or “Only the Best for me”
Leo’s are very possessive of their family, and are normally the ones that initiate massive change or transformation in the family. Leo’s are likely to die in their sleep and in their home or home town, peacefully, as well Leo’s are invested with the heritage of the family they are often the heart of the family and thus the spiritual leader of the family.
Leo’s love traveling the world and sampling different cultures, with Sagittarius in the 5th Place. They love philosophy, and have a natural talent for broadcast, religious leadership, and comedy. Leo’s are Capricorns when it comes to work or its own 6th Place. They are hard working, responsible employees, and need order and structure to function to their benefit in a work environment. Many Leo’s meet mentors or teachers of life lessons in the work place and or gym the place of working out. As well many Leo’s find ease working in a corporate or government environment. This also show why Leo’s love to play or play games alot.
Leo’s like to have freedom in their relationships, as well want to know the loops holes to any contract. Leo’s may be open to unorthodox relationships with Aquarius in the 7th. Eloping, Marring suddenly, Love at first sight, weird relationships all describe the personal, close partnerships of Leo.
The death of Leo is blindness, or in other words Pisces. Leo have Pisces in the 8th House of Death, Resurrection, Recuperation, Injury by Piercing, Assault, Surgery, Re-Occurring Ailments, Natural Ailment, Shared Resources, Partner’s Resources and Values, Regeneration, Sex, Sexuality, the Reproductive Organs and system, Reproduction, Recycling, Massive Change, Evolution, Transformation, Occult, Murder, Rape) Leo’s are very inclined to addiction and must beware of abuse of drugs. Leo’s may develop the psychic ability to contact or commune with spirits. They find comfort in sex. Meditation and Spirituality is a trans-formative catalyst for Leos, they thrive best in the occult fields dealing with contact with the spiritual world or healing.
Leo’s are fierce about their education and learning to expand their minds, and are likely the first to jump in to try or experience a new foreign fad, or philosophy or religion, as well often are the ones that volunteer to fight in foreign wars. Leo’s benefit from taking action, they are motivated by fortune, and travel, they are great leaders or warriors with Aries in the 9th Place. This also means they are great competitors in sports and in learning or expanding their mind, as well as with other leaders motivate them to expand.
Leo’s are known for their appetites, what they own or have, the career they got, or to be very dependable or loyal or reliable because Taurus is in the 10th Place of status, reputation, career, ambition, success and highest potential. Hence why Leo’s, especially the risings make some of the best Bankers or Accountants around.
The Friends of Leo can be described by the energy of Gemini. Leo’s normally have a variety of set of friends, their siblings, relatives or neighbors are normally the group of friends they surround themselves with, especially the younger ones.
The undoing of Leo is Cancer, or their emotions, or the lack or in ability to control their emotions or instincts. For Leo Men this can really be women, or their own femininity or mother or emotions or family. For a lot of Leo women this explains why so many of your friends eventually turn to secret enemies, especially the women. LOL! Leo is natural empathy, and has a psychic ability to heal via the emotions. Their family is sacred and their psychic abilities extend greatly to their family member, especial the female ones.
Ok, we explored the psychology of Leo, lets take a look a two of my favorite delineations of it and break them down, the King/Queen and the Heroine/Hero!!!
Leo the King/Queen
Leo is the King, and the 1st House of the King describes why kings have been known to be the Divine representative of God in reality.
Kings leave their financial matters to their Servants and the worth of their kingdom resides in the servants whom serve them, this is Virgo in the 2nd House of Kings. Kings have to constantly balance the affairs of the law and be fair-minded in regards to the community.
A King is married to the Law, and ironically with Libra in the 3rd Place of Kings, often marries their siblings, relatives, or neighbors to cement commitments, and harmony.
A King’s Castle is his Power Base, as described by Scorpio in the 4th Place of Kings. This is also why all enemies of the king know to wipe out the King’s family or heritage to destroy him, for the death of a King’s spirit and legacy is in destroying his home or family.
The Power to every King is a Queen or his Mother. All Kings know that their Kingdom expands from having children, through the first born or First born Sun/Son. This is Sagittarius in the 5th Place of Leo. King’s benefited from children, and is historically overly optimistic and enthusiastic about their first born, especially the Suns/Sons. Ironically to me, it is no wonder King’s have children by foreigner so much, it is something they intrinsically love to do…LOL. Kings benefit from expanding their kingdoms and from elevating to emperors.
The structure and order of any Kingdom comes from the King’s servants. It is those that serve that bring stability to a King’s rule. Often King’s have been known to be cruel to their Servants, and in history have routinely governed over others. Many a King has had plenty of wives and partners, this is Aquarius in the 7th place of Kings, whom want to be able to have a group of wives or partnerships but their partners being exclusive with them, expressing the fixed nature of Aquarius and it’s ancient ruler Saturn. King’s married for National Interest and almost never has a traditional marriage. King’s are free to break contracts when ever they desire.
The Death of a King has in history always been via treachery, deceit or glamoritized. Addiction, Intrigue, Deceit, Illusion, Delusion, Seclusion, Mental Illness, Illness, are all motifs in the death of kings. As well they get in debt due to their addictions.
King’s are the Leaders of their Armies, they are the initiator or those that commands other s to war. King’s love to fight foreign wars and to conquer foreigner and to spread their Religions by force, this is Aries in the 9th Place of Kings, this is how they become rich and fortunate via the spoils of war or mental expansion. The most powerful Kings have been Warrior Kings, Religious Kings, Spiritual or Philosophical Kings or those Kings that implement and expand new educational, religious and philosophical programs.
King’s are known for their wealth and their riches determine their status. King’s maybe known to be greedy but also the are generally suppose to be loyal to their people or power as I say since Taurus the 10th Place of Leo opposes Scorpio the 4th Place and Squares Leo at the Ascendant…LOL *Evil Fixed T Square* They are known to be dependable and reliable hence why if one has an issue they go to the KING. The reason why the KING’s court is full of writers, magicians, poets, critiques, etc, is because Gemini is the 11th Place of the KING and thus he has a variety of relatives, ambassadors, and Gemini types as companions. A King’s adviser is the Magi, Magician, the Sage, and the Thinker and therefore describes Gemini again in the 11th. Often enough it is the King’s friends that can speak freely. The downfall or undoing of any King is his emotions, his past, his family, his woman or his mother. Too many examples of this exist to go deeply into it. A King needs to guard his family, woman, feelings and past against his enemies.
Leo being the sign of the Sun and thus tied inevitable to the Solar Mythos, there is a plethora of Sun gods and goddess , Solar Kings, Queen, Heroes, and myths, stories, songs, and romances about them as well celebrations and rituals surrounding them. As well Leo represents the Hero’s Journey and how it manifests in our life. So in efforts to connect with the Higher self or the Inner child one should look to where Leo rest in their chart to look to see what their journey is about, and to the Sun to know where and how to start it. The Sun’s Journey through each of the Zodiac signs is a story of the Journey of the True Self in the Universe with each sign and house and aspect representing the different energy signatures that will manifest and be experienced and even created. With Leo and the Sun tied together planets in Leo add to the Drama of your Life’s or Hero’s Journey.
Leo the HERO / HEROINE
The Hero always gets the girl in the movies because Cancer is in the 12th House (of Hollywood, Cinema or Movie Industry) of the Hero.
The Hero is loved above and beyond all else because Sagittarius is in the 5th
The Hero is always killed by deceit or never truly dies because Pisces is in the 8th Place of the Hero or the 8th Place or death is described by the Hero’s 12th House or Sorrows, Undoing, Secret Enemies and Weakness. In the case of the Hero or Heroine, it is generally the Family, a Woman, their Emotions, and other Cancerian, Moon, 4th House applications.
The Hero doesn’t have Slaves or like slavery because Capricorn is in the 6th Place of the Hero as well the Hero is a hard working servant for the people.
All Hero’s are known to be reliable and dependable for Taurus is the 10th Place of the Hero and known for the ability to “Survive”
All Hero’s weakness is their Family, or Mother or Woman for Cancer is the 12th House of Heroes.

Bob Mark the Astrologers says -> this configuration also ->
“Marked a generation (1939 to 1956, and some in 1957 and 1958) that was obsessed with self-expression. These are the War babies and the baby boomers, and “Do your own thing” was (and still is) their motto. This was the generation that was never going to grow old. As they age, they become fanatic about trying to stay young, hence the proliferation of health clubs. Before 1960, marketing experts could tell estimate from a person’s income, what kind of car they would probably drive, how expensive their house was, etc. The Pluto in Leo people turned that topsy-turvy because they would splurge on the things most important to them and skimp on everything else. You would get people who would live in a small house but drive a big car and take expensive vacations, or someone who would live in a big house and drive a beetle. And of course, this generation made all those riots on the campus. Pluto in Leo will always defy authority, unless, of course, THEY are the authority.”

Prominent Aspectual Relationships with Leo
Leo Trines Aries and Sagittarius the Fire Energy Easily flow between one another they have a love affair, as explained earlier. Often they can take on each other’s traits to a great extent. Hence why it is easy for a Leo to be selfish because they have Aries in the 9th or Lazy because they have Sagittarius in the 5th House. As well this is why Leo’s especially the Risings tend to be Great Leaders (Aries in the 9th) and Great Comedians ( Sagittarius in the 5th ) to note “easy flow” isn’t always positive, for this means the negative traits of the fire signs are easily toggled between them. This is a Lover’s or true Love Aspect, as well as a Great Benefic Aspect as well. Planets in these signs work extraordinarily well together.
Leo Sextile Gemini; a Sextile is an opportunity and between Leo and Gemini there is nothing but opportunity. This aspect or relationship represents when effort or work is put in between one’s mindset, communication, relatives or neighbors that their truest desires can be achieved, as well speech, the hands or a way a person communicates can and does reveal a portion of their true person, and with proper work and effort can be a beneficial thing. Gemini and Leo have Cancer as a midpoint or between them so “Family”, family ties or family upbringing or heritage and Emotions are the prime ingredient for healthy or UN healthy relationship with siblings and relatives or neighbors. So Emotions and Nurturing are key to communicating from the heart
Sextile Libra which presents via effort, work and concentration a congenial or applicable bridge between matters of the hearts and relationships. The Middle point of Leo and Libra is Virgo, so Service, Favors and routine work on balancing and commitment is what makes love and relationships work. Basically the key to a healthy love life with one’s partner is “work”.
Leo Opposes Aquarius and this opposition shows the struggle between one’s divine self and the divine humanity, basically the self consciousness and the collective consciousness, which is remedy via Taurus and Scorpio, in other words via transformation of morals do we balance love and freedom.
Squares Scorpio which shows a challenge between who we truly are and what we must become, that struggle is illustrated I this square and rectified via organization and balance. Love and Sex although highly compatible and comparable is a struggle to achieve and maintain for it is know that the one you love may not be the one that satisfies you sexually or sparks evolution in your person.
Squares Taurus , which shows how Love and what one’s purpose is or what one is enthusiastic about is challenge by their values or their financial situation, as well it demonstrates the “Practical” challenges one must fact to project their creativity
Quincunx Capricorn means a redirection or adjustment to a more structure form of how one expresses them or conducts love affairs or deal with children. I find those with this angle seem to have issues disciplining their children “correctly”
Quincunx Pisces this aspect is fatal to me, for one must learn to re-orientate their interest, ideals and perspective on life, and addiction is a serious challenge here for “change” Is hard when many of the options are indeed illusionary.
