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]

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.

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]

Venus conjunct Regulus: Many disappointments, unexpected happenings, violent attachments, trouble through love affairs. [1] Jack Wrangler 1°33′, Ukraine 1°35′.

Mars conjunct Regulus: Honor, fame, strong character public prominence, high military command. [1] Henry Ford 0°00′, Antonio Salieri 1°37′, David Cameron 1°51′, Donald Trump 2°18′, Princess Diana of Wales 2°21′, Ariana Grande 2°25′.

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 acknowledgement 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′, Fidel Castro 2°22′.

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′.

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

North Node conjunct Regulus: Boy George 0°05′, Princess Diana of Wales 1°06′, Martin Scorsese 1°27′, Barack Obama 1°57′, Camille Grimaldi 2°16′.

  1. Note: With the upcoming eclipse in August on Regulus I took notice and riffled through some of my collection of charts and found Bernie Madoff like Trump has Regulus on his ascendant, Pluto is conjunct Bernie’s ascendant and square Algol in the Midheaven, I think Regulas rising not only imparts leadership quality but charisma, Regulas as a Leonine personality indicates a person who wants to be noticed or considered special and or important or popular. Leo just has to be in charge even if what they have to offer is a con, I have found Leo’s to be more concerned with their own needs and practically deaf to others needs. I don’t know what will happen to these two but Bernie has his sun in Taurus square Uranus which offers imprisonment. Donald might squeak by unharmed for now with all his high priced lawyers and Republican toadies. Fate or what? I think the Trump will go down.

  2. I have an interesting situation developing with my niece, Grace. I am living with my parents, Grace’s grandparents. Grace, her two sisters and her mother (my sister) came to visit for Thanksgiving (November 23rd). I do not get along well with Grace’s mother. This was the first time I have seen my sister in about 30 years, the first time I have talked with her in more than 20 years. Grace is 15. Last year, Grace took a plane, by herself, to come meet me for the first time. Her parents are divorced. I assumed that Grace knew that the reason for the divorce was because my sister discovered that her husband was gay and had been actively gay for their entire relationship. I asked Grace how she felt about this. Grace didn’t know. Her father is still in the closet. Grace said she would be very surprised if it was true. So, now she knows. A year has gone by. Grace still hasn’t said anything to her sisters. She and I found an opportunity to spend some time alone together his past weekend, talking. We had a good long talk. I like Grace.

    Today, I had a look at our Davidson’s relationship chart. Grace and I have Jupiter at 0Vir39 conjunct Regulus, which is now in Virgo, at 0Vir5. Our Jupiter is conjunct Mars 2Vir43 and the Midheaven 3Vir5.

    This is a big deal Jupiter thing because my sister is a “good Christian,” like her “good Christian” ex-husband. I am a very spiritually-oriented person who has been branded by my sister as a terrible, bad person. All my mail to Grace has been opened by my sister and censored before it is decided whether or not Grace is allowed to see it. I like to communicate by snail mail because I’m not very handy with the computer and I like to communicate with visual pictures.

    I have Vesta at 23Can13 in a tight square to my nodes. Grace has Waldemath (Dark Moon Lilith, the lunar apogee, when the Moon is furthest from the earth) at 23Can05. So, Grace is triggering my skipped step.

    My Pluto is at 2Vir40 conjunct our Davidson’s Mars at 2Vir43. In fact, I have a Pluto-Pallas-Mercury-Venus stellium between 2 – 6 degrees Virgo all conjunct the Regulus-Jupiter-Mars-Midheaven in our Davidson’s chart.

    Matthew 17:21…”Howbeit this kind comes not out but by prayer and fasting.”

    Okay. It’s time for me to stop eating.

    • I might mention one additional thing. I am not my mother’s daughter. She gestated me and gave birth to me, but I have none of her genes. My sister has my mother’s genes. I have my father’s genes combined with extraterrestrial Nordic genes.

      • My natal asteroid Child (4580) is at 29Leo02 conjunct my natal Regulus 29Leo15. It’s my inner child who has empathy for my neice. I really have no idea how I can help, but trust my intuition to guide me.

        • “Is ascension—a graduation into a higher level of existence—your ultimate goal for being human? And are there negative forces in the universe that feed on your fear, anger, guilt, and shame and will stop at nothing to prevent you from achieving this quantum leap in your evolution? Are we witnessing a tremendous competition over who gets to control our planet?” — David Wilcock

          Emotion. It all comes down to emotion.

          • I just noticed that asteroid Atlantis (1198) is now at 8Lib07 square my natal Ascendant at 8Can15. I am wondering what that means…

            “There seem to be two sides to the Atlantis issue. One is spiritual, regarding our relationship to God or the cosmos. The other is technological, regarding our relationship to Big Science and ordinary technology. The two issues are, at times, closely bonded; for us they both address the question of existence or threatened existence or more often, the threat of nonexistence. Either God will create the Rapture, or one of our Big Science machines will run out of control. If we worship technology and turn it into God, we’ll surely have problems. Or we may intentionally use technology as a means of either discovering God (the Large Hadron Collider) or thinking we are God (the nuclear bomb, which Americans and only Americans have used on civilians).
            When you take these themes and wrap them in the issue of whether any of this is going to be our downfall, that is the essence of Atlantis. It has an asteroid, number 1198, so the way you would write that is (1198) Atlantis. My keywords for this point are the use and abuse of technology, but this can be on any scale you like, and the results of that use are included. (1198) Atlantis also hints at our anxiety around the fall of our own civilization.”. –Eric Francis

            • The past several days I have sent quite a few messages to my sister, my nieces and my ex-brother-in-law’s mother. Today I am putting together a package for my ex-brother-in-law. This will complete my efforts to help my nieces. I am expecting the package to arrive on the 11th of December so I have looked up my ex-brother-in-law’s chart and noted the transits.

              Transiting South Node 16Aqu53 will be conjunct his natal Pholus 16Aqu34. Pholus means that the lid comes off a situation and things are never the same again.

              Transiting Saturn 28Sag55 will be conjunct transiting Pholus 28Sag24 and sextile Bill’s natal Saturn 28Aqu52 while squaring his natal Waldemath 28Vir23. So it’s time for him to make an adjustment in his responsibility towards the truth and his deepest, darkest feelings.

              Transiting Orcus 10Vir10 will be conjunct his natal Mars 10Vir16. He’ll have to ask himself what he truly wants in life. What promises did he make when he incarnated?

              Transiting Galactic Center will be at 27Sag06 conjunct his natal Pallas 27Sag12. He has the wisdom to know what to do.

              Transiting Waldemath 18Ari04 will be inconjunct his natal Neptune 18Sco11. Thank God for forgiveness.

      • I would like to make a correction. On December 3rd (December 4, Jamie’s time), I posted a comment about the transits to my ex-brother-in-law’s chart on the day of the expected arrival of a package I was putting together for him. This turns out to have been an error. I made a mistake in setting up his chart. I got his birth year wrong. He was actually born a few months before my sister, in the year prior to hers. When I set up the chart, I gave him the same birth year as my sister. Even though that particular data turns out to have been an error, I have no doubt that my ex-brother-in-law has been profoundly affected by the things I have sent him.

    • In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat. But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of. Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat? Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. John 4:31-34

    • My niece, Grace, has Waldemath in Cancer conjunct my Vesta and square my nodes. In our Davidson’s chart, she and I have Jupiter at 0 Virgo, conjunct Regulus. I would like to mention an important way this energy has played out between us.

      When she first flew to Nashville to meet me, Grace brought one of her pet hedgehogs along with her. He was just the cutiest little critter and a fun conversation starter. Many years ago, though, I was profoundly influenced by an animal rights activist. Since that time, I have vowed never again to keep an animal as a pet in a cage. So my heart could not help sinking a bit to notice the cage this animal spent most of its time in.

      When I saw her this year, Grace showed me pictures of her new pets. In addition to her hedgehogs, she now has flying squirrels. These, also, are adorable little creatures. Grace is deeply bonded with her pets. Her little squirrels are so closely bonded with her that they do not need a leach when she goes outside with them. They don’t stray far from her and always come running back. Grace has been breeding and selling hedgehogs for a while now. She has begun doing the same with her squirrels. She says she would like to make a career as a breeder and domesticator of exotic pets. Her heart is in this work because of her emotional needs, because of what she gets emotionally from her pets.

      I understand why Grace has an emotional void that she seeks to fill with her pets. I know her family background. My heart goes out to her. As much as I have not wanted to hurt her feelings, I have felt called upon to point out to Grace, as carefully as I could, that domesticating and caging animals to serve our own emotional needs is not a loving thing to do. It is exploitation.

      Maybe someday she can work in an animal sanctuary. She truly is very attentive in caring for her pets. I just want her to be aware of how she is using emotional energy. So that’s my Vesta in Cancer having a conversation with her Waldemath, with Regulus watching over us.

  3. What about August 22, 1987…why do I have so many Grand Trines pointing to Regulus with what looks to be Venus, the Sun, Mars, and Mercury all conjunct? Jupiter, Neptune, and Uranus all trine there, the only inner planet that isn’t conjunct is the Moon and that is in a trine with Saturn. Anyways, I just started to understand this and I have no idea what to think about that. Thanks in advanced, Xander

  4. What about north node conjunct Regulus?

  5. Hi Jamie, Doesn’t the meanings for the star, Regulus, change now that he is in the sign of Virgo ? Thanks! – Christopher

    • Hi Jerry. Opposition sdo not really apply to fixed stars. However, you will probably feel the effects of Regulus when a planet is in opposition to your Saturn. For example, 18 August 2019 Mars is conjunct Regulus. That will influence your Mars opposite Saturn transit.

  6. Hi Jamie — You mentioned above significance of Regulus conjunct IC, but stated no specific meaning. Could you elaborate please? (I’m conjunct 1 degree) Thx!
