☆♥*♥☆ Leo/Aquarius Axis ☆♥*♥☆

Knowing a  partners 7th house cusp (the relationship house) and the ruler of that house, indicates the type of partner you may attract or are attracted to and the method of relating within that relationship.

The Ascendant or Rising sign is the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This is the face we show the world, our “mask” for which our Sun hides behind. This is our outer personality, temperament, and disposition as well as our early childhood environment. It is the way others see us and also gives indication of our physical appearance. The ruler of the Ascendant and the aspects (connections to other planets in your birth chart) further delineate and define the appearance and outward personality. The Descendant, or 7th house cusp, its ruler and the aspects it makes in your birth chart, is symbolic of the type of partner you are attracted to or who is attracted to you. The 7th house is the house of types of partnerships including marriage and legal contracts, yet also considered the house of open enemies or the Defendant in a law suit.

For example, Leo Rising people are self aware, warm, and stylish. Their personal appearance is important and they seek much attention and pampering. Their natural enthusiasm, energy, and optimism is magnetic. A Leo Ascendant is recognized by their hair, straight posture, strong mid-backs, and their warm, endearing smile. They make good Managers and are natural promoters, even if they are prone to temper tantrums~!

Leo rising people possess a strong ego and self image, projected into the environment. Leo's aura  radiates an air of royalty and they are very proud and dignified. In love, this placement would require mutual independence within marriage as both Leo and Aquarius are powerfully willful. Love relationships are often impersonal and involve mutual growth. Sexually, Leo may be prone to voyeurism and/or domination.

With Aquarius on the Descendant, attraction to an unusual, independent, future-oriented and progressive individual is likely. Astrologers come under this heading! Aquarius is impersonal, freedom-loving, and unique and may be erratic and creative in love. The well known expression “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” epitomizes the Leo/Aquarius Axis.

Rubberbands~Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Writer/Psychologist John Gray, who wrote the popular Mars/Venus books, write about how men are like rubber bands while women are like waves in relationships. The rubber band concept is explained in that men in love typically need distance and space in between and tend to pull away from a love relationship, and then bounce back….like a rubber band so long as you don’t interfere with the process of their departure. Rubber bands can stretch too far and snap or loose elasticity. Again, this clearly illustrates the intimacy requirement of Leo (Sun)/Aquarius (Uranus) duality. Leo wants you close and will position themselves in the center of your attention, then in the same breath need their space and want you to "disappear". This come hither, go away, avoidant dynamic is ever present.

Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely) ~By Pink
Go away...Give me a chance to miss you
Say goodbye
It'll make me want to kiss you
I love you so
Much more when you're not here
I don't believe Adam and Eve
Spent every goddamn day together
Come back...Go away...Come back
Why can't I just have it both ways
Go away...Come back
I wish you knew the difference 

Whatever is not acknowledged in the Self (Ascendant) is attract externally (Descendant).  Other people mirror our desires and teach necessary lessons in relating. Knowing the date, time, and place of birth is important in determing the Ascendant.

☆♥*♥☆ Planetary Leo ☆♥*♥☆

Dear cosmic cohorts...

If you have your…

Ascendant in Leo♌: You may have a regal appearance and your "mane" is shiny, thick and sleek!  Everyone knows who you are when you walk into a room because of your great big smile, straight posture and impeccable attire! Your wonderful sense of humor is very attractive to others and you are a people magnet.  Children are especially drawn to your warmth, creativity, and enthusiasm.

Moon in Leo♌: Emotional need for admiration and attention. Your mother thought you to be the apple of her eye and possibly her “favorite”. Vanity is a weakness. You are romantic and an adoring audience with jealous and possessive tendencies. You have a talent for inspiring others and an emotional need for luxury.

Mercury in Leo♌: You are a dynamic speaker and conversationalist and have a need to be heard. You have creative ideas and a retentive memory. Mercury in Leo has a way with words, eloquence and a skillful leader. Your sunny disposition and enthusiasm draws attention from everyone.

Venus♀ in Leo♌: Values a partner they respect and admire. In love you want to be made to feel special. You are loyal and devoted to the one who has won your affections. You are generous and affectionate in love and usually dominant in love.

Mars in Leo♌: Desires attention in a partnership and “always” receives it! This is a hot blooded fiery placement. Your passionate and dramatic sexual energy is strong and constant. You don’t take “no” for an answer! Dictators, Corporate executives.

Jupiter in Leo♌: You are ambitious and expansive with personal appeal. You may do quite well in the entertainment fields such as acting, music promotion, publicity, advertising, marketing, and all public areas of life.

☆♥*♥☆ Happy Birthday Leo ☆♥*♥☆

 
Happy Birthday Leo♌~!
For those born between July 22~Aug 23rd.
Key Phrase is: I ROAR....ooops...only teasing... I WILL 



Applause, applause!! Leo’s love an audience and usually position themselves to be the center of attention. They have a keen need to feel appreciated and accomplish something in life they feel proud of. Leo♌ is a masculine, fixed (steady and determined), fire (intuitive, fiery) sign located in the 2nd quadrant (other oriented and inter-personal)  Western Hemisphere of the chart. Because Leo resides in the 5th house ruled by the Sun, our life force, ego ideal, the future, children, creativity, and romance are most important to Leo♌. Leo loves romance and shine brightly in most relationships…so long as they are viewed as “King”.

Leo's may be incredibly charming and possess a fun, child-like carefree attitude. Leo is recognized by their charismatic presence and a great big smile. When Leo enters a room, people take notice! Leo is also known for a warm hearted and affectionate nature. Naturally self expressive, Leo is the drama Queen or King of the zodiac and also King of the Jungle!! (or Queen of the office or hearth!) The luminary ruling Leo is our life giving Sun. The Sun shines brightly during the day sky with our Moon goddess absorbing his light to reflect back in the evening, once the Sun has disappeared from view. The glyph/symbol for the sign of Leo♌ is associated with kundalini energy. Kundalini is coiled at the base of the spine and is our vital energy.

Leo♌ rules the spine, back, and heart. The heart is associated with emotions and love, and Leo’s can be absolutely devoted to those they love. The heart chakra is the life force and where harmony and trust reside. When the heart chakra is “open” there is flexibility to give and receive love. Being open to change and accepting of new ideas leads to personal growth. When feeling hurt, Leo retreats to their “cave” to lick their wounds, in private. When the heart chakra is closed or off balance, the ability to receive or give love is compromised. Count to ten and practice deep breathing. Individuals with the Ascendant in Leo and/or planets in the 5th house may exhibit some of these personality characteristics.
Leo’s polar opposite (5th house~romance, children, creativity, gambling) is the fixed, air sign Aquarius (11th house~friendships, organizations, associations, hopes, and wishes). Integrating romance, children, and creative outlets with independence, individuality, friendships, and associations are concerns for Leo♌, also contingent upon other areas of the birth chart.

When under stress each sign operates through the most negative characteristics of their polar opposite; the sign 180 degrees opposite itself. When under stress, Leo♌ may become erratic, unpredictable, and extremely willful and can not be tied down at all, similiar to airy Aquarius, the water bearer, ruled by iconoclast Uranus. Aquarians seem distant or cool because they are air and tend to “think”or intellectualize emotions. When under stress, Leo♌ will toss whatever is troubling them over the shoulder and say, "I simply don't need this!" While this may be an emotional issue, it is more likely concerning a relationship or romantic partner.

Since Leo is a "Lion", let's celebrate Leo♌ as symbol for all cats, large and small. If you properly stroke or caress Leo (grooming fur in one direction) Leo will purrrrrrr… When cat’s purr they express contentment. They don't want their fur fluffed in the wrong direction though! Beware. They'll swipe you with a clawed-extended paw! Lions are very protective of their cubs (children). If Leo is prominent in your chart, children (your cubs) are your lifeline.

The sound of a cat purring is soothing and healing. You might enjoy the article "A Cats Purr" at this site: http://paulapeterson.com/CatsPurr.html Cats are natural Reiki Masters and Massage Therapists. Simply watch any kitty “kneed” a pillow, your arm, any soft spot on your body or your other cat!

☆♥*♥☆ Strength #8~Leo ☆♥*♥☆

Rider-Waite
In the Tarot, card #8  is symbolic of Leo. This card presents a lovely, peaceful, generous (naked in some decks) woman standing, gracefully bowing over a Lion. She strokes his regal mane and he appears to be purring like a little kitten!  The Lion is fearless and trusting.  The King of the Jungle may be tamed if you stroke his fur (ego) in the right direction. Have you ever pet a real kitty’s fur in the wrong direction? They look at you in such a way as to imply “How dare you!” “I am the King or Queen and I expect to be treated so!”  Puleeeeese do not fluff my fur in the wrong direction.

The Strength card represents unadulterated strength, determination, and power. However, this card presents a gentle woman, unarmed and without protective armor (unlike the Chariot in card #7 which is “outer strength and will”). She overcomes the lion with her quiet strength; power emanating from within. Strength is symbolic of the inner power of the human spirit to overcome crises, blocks, and obstacles.

Often reflective of calming the beast within, Strength symbolizes psychotherapy. Card number 8, which is essentially female, aligns her intuition to keep the lion (our unconscious desires) calm and in control. The lion in this card is also symbolic of courage to encounter powerful forces, placing fear aside, and to claim our own power.

When Strength appears in a reading, creative thinking, speaking with honesty and truthfulness are combined to promote the ego and ethical behavior. Taming passions, courage, determination, generosity, and having an open heart are indicated.

Negatively (reverse), domination, lack of control, wasting time, and self indulgence may be possibilities.

☆♥*♥☆ Planetary Cancer☆♥*♥☆

If you have your…

Ascendant in Cancer: Others see you as warm, caring, home loving, sensitive, kind, and maternal.  Your intuition is strong and reliable yet may be moody from time to time.  Your expressive face may be round or moon-shaped with large, soft smiling eyes. There may be a tendency to gain weight around the middle in later years.  Women with this placement are often full-breasted.

Moon☽ in Cancer: Mother was often seen as the proverbial “mother”, preparing meals, washing clothes and performing perfunctory household tasks. Her emotions waxed and waned and were intuitively felt by you. There is an emotional need to retreat when under stress and to be nurtured and mothered. There exists an emotional need to care for children. You are imaginative, sympathetic, protective, possessive, refined, gentle, receptive, moody, critical and loyal. This is an impressionable Moon position.

Mercury in Cancer: You are intuitive and prefer to discuss your feelings in conversation. Changing thoughts creates changing moods and visa versa. Possess a keen imagination and an excellent, retentive memory.

Venus in Cancer: Values security in love. You want to be pursued by a partner in a relationship because you require reassurance that your partner wants you enough to go after you. You are a romantic, sentimental and sensitive partner. Poetry. Loves to care about and for children and cooking. Content to stay home.  Attracted to a nurturing partner.

Mars in Cancer: Desires security in a partner. You can be willful and react with emotional outbursts and temper tantrums. Carpenters and home improvement specialists. Nurturing professions. Chefs. The sexual act depends upon the “mood” and this will change like the phases of the moon. Passion is contingent upon what is received from the partner.
