Leo Constellation [Stellarium]

The Sun joins Regulus on August 22

Fixed star Regulus, Alpha Leonis, is a 1.4 magnitude blue-white star in Leo Constellation. Regulus is actually a quadruple star system composed of four stars that are organized into two pairs.

The traditional name Regulus is Latin for ‘prince‘ or ‘little king‘. In Arabic it is قلب الأسد (Qalb al-Asad, ‘the heart of the lion‘), the same as the Latin Cor Leōnis and Greek Kardia Leontos.

In Chinese it is 轩辕十四, the Fourteenth Star of Xuanyuan, the Yellow Emperor. In Babylonian it was Sharru, ‘the King‘ and LUGAL, ‘the star that stands in the breast of the Lion: the King.’

In Persian it was Miyan, ‘the Centre‘ and Venant, one of the four ‘royal stars’ of the Persian monarchy, where in 3,000 BC, as the Watcher of the North, it marked the summer solstice.

Symbolically the Crushing Foot, Regulus is associated with the healing Archangel Raphael, one of the four Archangel stars, characterized as the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse (Revelations 6) and Chariot Horses in the Book of Zechariah (The White went North).

Regulus was one of the fifteen Behenian Fixed Stars, associated with granite, mugwort, celandine, mastic and the kabbalistic symbol Agrippa1531 corLeonis.png. Its image is a lion, cat, or an honorable person seated in a chair. It makes the wearer temperate, gives favor and appeases wrath.

Regulus Star Astrology

Fixed star Regulus is of the nature of Mars and Jupiter. It gives violence, destructiveness, military honor of short duration, with ultimate failure, imprisonment, violent death, success, high and lofty ideals and strength of spirit, and makes its natives magnanimous, grandly liberal, generous, ambitious, fond of power, desirous of command, high-spirited and independent. [1]

It may convey royal properties, noble mind, frankness, courage. The importance of this star is accentuated by its nearness to the ecliptic. Its effect is in the best sense that of Jupiter and Mars. When Mars or Saturn are in conjunction with Regulus, especially exciting events are always recorded e.g. assassinations, coup d’états, revolutions, revolts, demonstrations, overthrow of heads of state and similar events. [2]

Regulus is one of the most fortunate stars in the heavens. It portends glory, riches, and power to all who are born under its influence. Proclus (412-485) called Regulus the “Royal Star”, and asserted that those born under it have a royal-like nativity. In judicial astrology, however, the dimming of the star presaged evil times. A Ninevite tablet, according to R.A. Allen, states: “If the star of the great lion is gloomy the heart of the people will not rejoice.” [4]

Regulus star rules two inches below the top of the kidneys in the human body. [3]

Regulus marks the beginning of the 8th nakshatra (Hindu lunar mansion), Magha (the bountiful): A severe asterism belonging to the Shudra caste and favorable for acts of disgrace, destruction, deceit, imprisonment, beating, burning and poison when containing the Moon. Those born on the lunar day will be wealthy, fond of hills, merchants, valiant, and women haters. With Moon here at birth native will be wealthy, religious, contented, well served, and fond of life. Rules grain boxes and the lips and upper mouth.

It also marks the beginning of the 8th manzil (Arabic lunar mansion), Al Jabhah (the Forehead): Strengthens buildings, promotes love, benevolence, and help against enemies. With Moon transiting here: sow, plant, release prisoners but take no purgatives. [1]

Leo Constellation

In mundane astrology Leo Constellation is associated with royal events especially the ascension or death of kings and queens, the election or death of heads of state, assassinations, uprisings and massacres, currency and the stock exchange, the Vatican and European Union.

10th Arabic Manzil – Al-Jabhah

Strengthens buildings, promotes love, benevolence, and help against enemies.

With Moon: Sow, plant, release prisoners but take no purgatives.

25th Chinese Xiù – 星 (Xīng) Star

Governs highway robbery, bridges, fords, piracy, kidnapping, textile dying, clothing and pigments. Favorable for real estate transactions and constructions of all types. But unfavorable for funerals and weddings. There are deaths and separations for those who bury on this day. The wife of a marriage performed on this day may fall into the hands of a ravisher.

Regulus Star Conjunctions

Ascendant conjunct Regulus: Great honor and wealth, but violence and trouble, sickness, fevers, acute disease, benefits seldom last, favor of the great, victory over enemies and scandal.

The 145th Consideration of Guido Bonnets is as follows: -” That thou see in Diurnal Nativities whether Cor Leonis be in the Ascendant, that is to say, in the Oriental Line or above it one degree or below it three degrees; or whether it be in the tenth in like degrees, without the Conjunction or Aspect of any of the Fortunes, for this alone signifies that the Native shall be a person of great note and power, too much exalted, and attain to high preferment and honors, although descended from the meanest parents. And, if any of the Fortunes behold that place also, his glory shall be the more increased; but, if the Nativity be nocturnal, his fortune will be somewhat meaner, but not much; but if the Infortunes cast their aspects there it will still be more mean; but if the Fortunes behold it also they will augment the good promised a fourth part, and mitigate the evil as much; yet still, whatever of all this happens, it signifies that the Native shall die an unhappy death; or at least that all his honors, greatness and power shall at last suffer an eclipse and set in a cloud. [1]

On the Ascendant, it will give a courageous and frank character, especially if in conjunction with the Sun, Moon, Jupiter or Mercury. [2]

Midheaven conjunct Regulus: Honor, preferment, good fortune, high office under Government, military success. If with Sun, Moon or Jupiter, great honor and ample fortune. [1]

Positioned on the MC, Regulus will raise the native to high positions in life, positions far exceeding the environment the native was born into. On the MC it is not only a good omen for a military career, but also for careers connected with the public, such as lawyers, civil servants, bankers and the clergy, especially if Regulus is also in conjunction with the Sun or Moon or with a benefic stellar body. According to tradition, Regulus conjunct MC will bring with it connections with rulers, honorable people or famous people. An old saying goes that Regulus in the 10th house ‘makes astrologers to kings. [2]

If at the same time the Sun is with the Dragon’s Head in Gemini, or Jupiter is in the 10th house in trine to Mars and the Sun is with the Dragon’s Head, great preferment even from the lowest sphere to high rank. [1]

0°30′ orb: This is one who takes command and gives orders. These persons work well in the military and can achieve high goals and honors here. The commanding personality extends even to their love life, since everyone is merely a stepping stone for their pleasures and ego. [3]

Sun conjunct Mars conjunct Regulus (0°30′ orb): This does create quite a problem. These natives are like pompous kings strutting around and showing their importance. They are always in a position of authority, and they demand total recognition for their achievements and abilities. They like to catch others off guard and show off their superiority. They do not know what the word “humble” means. Their drive and needs are extreme and overpowering. They strive to go to the very top in the military. These individuals are simply out of touch with everything except for the acknowledgment of their authority. The Sun and Mars in conjunction here does affect the health. These persons have too much energy pumping through the heart, and later on in life when they no longer have the vitality to feed this, the heart loses some of its elasticity and strength at which time a critical point is reached. Only a few make it past sixty years of age. They could increase their lifespan if they learn to be humble, but they would have to start early in life. [3]

Jupiter conjunct Regulus: Fame, high preferment, especially of a military nature, success in the Church. [1]

If the cosmogram as a whole points to this possibility, Jupiter conjunct Regulus is one of the best configurations for success. People like this can reach high positions, positions of trust, preferment and favors; fortunes. Riches and power could fall to these natives easily. [2]

Ray Bradbury 0°20′ Bill Gates 1°26′.

Saturn conjunct Regulus: Just, friends among clergy, success in Church or law, scholarly, wealth, gain through speculation, companies and friends, high position, proud of home and family, good health, heart trouble at end of life. If angular and especially if rising or culminating, public honor and credit. If Mars be with the Pleiades, violent death in a tumult. [1]

Uranus conjunct Regulus: Energetic, ambitious, successful, may be unjust or dishonorable, self-aggrandizement, high official position, panders to aristocracy, associated with religion for business purposes, gain through speculation and companies, favorable for marriage, sorrow through death of daughter and disappointment through a son; friends become enemies at end of life, may retire and live in seclusion, violent death through accident or assassination. [1] Jim Carrey 0°28′, Johnny Depp 2°15′.

There persons strive to be leaders and almost make it to the top of their objective. They like to be in government positions in order to control masses of people. Support comes their way on the road to success, but just when they begin to feel the glory of success, someone causes their downfall. Something always happens so that they lose the confidence of their superiors, or the public will lose confidence in the individual. This happens abruptly and with surprise, and of course, affects the ego tremendously. [3]

Neptune conjunct Regulus: Prominent leader, lawgiver, diplomatic, strong character, control over others, influential friends, few if any enemies, domestic harmony, natural death in old age. [1] Anne Frank 0°02′, Audrey Hepburn 0°14′, Andy Warhol 0°29′, Mirka Mora 1°48.

Pluto conjunct Regulus: Makes activists in relation to human rights and suspicion about what big government and corporations are hiding, interest in conspiracy theories. Bill Gates 0°52′, Sid Vicious 1°18′, Nancy Spungen 1°38′.

If with a malefic and the Moon with Antares, Praesepe or the Pleiades: blindness or injuries to the eyes. [1]

    • Hi starsseed! Maybe a kind of ‘ Dark ‘ Royalty,. I’m thinking ? Someone that might have had a tougher row to hoe to get to the top. ?
      For some reason The’ Prince and the Pauper ‘popped into my head , where the paupers impoverished life got accidentally swapped out for one of privilege of ‘ royal’ birth’ (as a possible metaphor.)
      It seems that S.node Regulus would be more like a ‘ king of the gypsies ‘ ( meant in a good way. ) kind of popularity rather than a mainstream .’ national ‘ type of popularity.I would recommend Celeste Teals book on : The Nodes ‘ and study S.Node contacts in the charts of famous people to get a feel for how it works.It doesn’t use fixed stars or asteroids ( except for Chiron. ) , but you can plug in the ‘ regulus ‘ symbolism and see if fits for you.I haven’t looked at his chart , and I know little about him , so don’t take what I said as gospel.That’s just what comes to my mind with ‘ that ‘contact.I hope that helps ! Have a good day ! ♍

  1. How would Regulus conjunct Chiron fare in the natal chart? I have this in the 8th house.

    • Hi Carolne. ; Could refer to something sexual ; I would look at the house.meaning 1st .
      From what I’ve seen there is always some kind of a ‘ wounding ‘ regarding the house activities in some way. For example : I haven’t found anyone so far that has a 4th house Chiron that didn’t suffer in the area of nurturing. ( often the mother is involved. )
      I’m not sure how the Regulus fits in. ; but it is linked to ‘royalty ‘.Add these qualities together , and see if you can find something that fits. 😄

      • Regulus in now in Virgo. The 8th Is the natural House of Virgo in the Age of Aquarius. So look for more cosmic clues that deal with regeneration and how that fits with your chart.

    • The thing to watch out for with Regulus is vengefulness. The star only “moved” into Virgo in 2011.
      Chiron can mean wounding or healing – and don’t forget self-sacrifice either!
      Apart from sex, the 8th house is traditionally about death, taxes and other people’s money.
      Hope this helps?

  2. WOW! This has got my heart pumping alright! Sheesh! I have 29′ Regulus conjunct 27′ leo Mars, 9 degrees away from my 6′ Virgo Sun (3rd house) and I have no problems being humble and of service, I think my family and friends would laugh their heads off at that description, but it’s interesting because I do have internalised ‘rages’ and in meditation and healing sessions I see and feel myself as an incredibly strong ‘knight’ or warrior (I’m female). it’s so powerful that the ‘therapist’ usually feels and sees it too. I also have a blood disorder (genetic) so that applies, I often feel very weak because of it – could be the square from Neptune in the 6th house. I suppose all the other factors in my chart mitigate some of those nasty pompous attributes? I think I may live longer than 60 since all my relatives (mainly the females) live into their 90’s (well one can only hope!). Thanks for the food for thought, interesting.

    • Hi Char. Cool story. Regulus eh?
      Ok, fwiw, ever since researching comet McNaught, Jan 12, 2007, I’m curious about Rotation in earth hours, and AU at Perihelion. Borisov is expected about 2 AU, and nothing in the story regarding rotation time, but they know current velocity and expected maximum velocity. IOW, since Borisov is transiting Regulus today, I’m into the specifications and sharing the McNaught info.

      Perihelion: 0.17 AU
      Rotation time: 21 hours

      • CI (Borisov) is expected to cross the ecliptic and conjunct Regulus on October 24. Perhaps even making an occultation, which would be very cool, if an image can be captured.

        • The Libra ingress, Fall equinox chart, progressed to Oct 24, and the alignment of Regulus and Comet CI Borisov, shows the Moon and Sun in sextile. There is considerable activation in people when the Comet reaches and crosses the ecliptic… and the gathering of souls. Comet CI Borisov semi-squares the ingress charts’ North Node, Moon, Mercury and Apollo, and Sesquisquares Saturn. My Dads going to command that thing.

            • On Aug 29 it was announced by MIT that comet/asteroid Gault 6478 tail had changed colour, red to blue. At virtually the same time Borisov discovered the first incoming interstellar comet, CI Borisov.

              Mercury 00-01Virgo

              We keep an eye on Mercury, and note the Inferior conj Eclipse, Nov 11
              And that the NewAge chart I use has Mercury Rx in Aquarius, 1st house..

              We are being primed for a first contact moment, soon, 6-7 months.

  3. “On 2019 August 30 Gennady Borisov at the MARGO observatory in Crimea discovered Comet C/2019 Q4 (Borisov) at small solar elongation in the morning twi-light.”

    “I observed it on August 29, but it was August 30 Greenwich Time.[Note 7]” wiki

    This got lost in translation. What I’m seeing is Gennadiy discovering the interstellar object just above the horizon in Cancer Constellation, it was 29 Aug in London, and Just before 3:00 am. 2:58 am places the Moon at 00Virgo00, which would justify why he even mentions 29 Aug UTC.

    Moon 00Vir00
    Regulus 00Vir06

  4. Good info! I have Uranus conjunct Regulus both at 29 degrees Leo and am Leo sun at 12 degrees. I was born to a career Army Dad & I had a short stint in the US Navy Reserve during Desert Storm. I now have a metaphysical & divinity degree. I can totally see how my friends might become my enemies in the future- I have very different perspectives on ideologies they hold dear and am planning a book on mental health that goes against mainstream thought.
    I guess its a good thing I like my own company. 🙂

    • Thanks for sharing Blossom. Your website is a shrine. I’m overwhelmed by the code now. It’s light is bright and the sight reaches deep into the galaxy.

    Yes indeed the Sun is with the dragons head, ie, Cosmogenesis is an Eclipse at the 2020 Summer Solstice.

    The Moon is important in the Regulus Ingress Virgo chart because 2I Borisov.

    Solar Arc direction on September 4, 2020, Natal Mars conjunct Solar Arc Regulus, and activates the Moon 9Aqr01(6th house cusp), Quincunx.

    Astrologyking doesn’t have this aspect, but Robert Hand does, and talks about it in his Planets in Youth (1977).

    To summarize, this is a confiscation aspect. Mom comes in and takes your toys away. No problem, you love Mother (the Universe, in this chart), and have a good relationship with her, developing self confidence, standing up for your rights against any obstacle. So display courage and independence, and you trek on; “but this will happen only if you have healthy emotional experiences as a child.” pg 122.

    • When you are 8 or 9, normally this is Grade 3 in elementary school. Toys are very important, and they are getting sophisticated. You identify with many of the characteristics of your doll, and the doll house, or if a boy, sports cards, marbles, and chestnuts, to name a few. There is a world encapsulated in possessions, from which outer structure takes form. Yet, along came authority, and these toys were removed. Loss, frustration and Mars anger… the self is forced to develop without things you gave life.

      So, perhaps, not such an easy problem to overcome. John Candy, the comedian, cracked jokes about his hockey cards destroyed, lost, or taken away during this time in his life. Many of us watching this actor perform; pains of joy, sorrow and shared experience. Better have a sense of humour here, or your finished.
