Regal Regulus has the honor of being the closest star to the ecliptic and therefore closest to the red carpet path of the glorious Sun. Regulus is a triple 1.3 magnitude star that flashes white and ultramarine. It is found, naturally, in the brave heart of the constellation Leo the Lion. When I first wrote this post in early 2011, Regulus was still at 29º 59′ of Leo and I hadn’t considered the fact it was about to move into Virgo. Now I have rewritten this post bearing this move in mind and adding more examples of subjects with Regulus prominent in their natal charts.

Regulus VirgoRegulus officially entered tropical Virgo on November 28th 2011.* It is speculated that Regulus crossing this symbolic sphinx cusp (between Leo and Virgo.) might herald the age of Aquarius. (Aquarius is Leo’s opposite sign on the fixed cross.) We can speculate that Virgo will teach Leo to put aside ego, dispense personal glory and become more respectful of the earth and it’s humans. This then describes a switch from service-to-self (Leo) towards service-to-others. (Virgo=Service, Aquarius=Others).

Regulus is the archangel Raphael, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. On the fixed cross, Regulus is one of the four cherubim represented on tarot cards also. These cherubim are symbolised by the Bull, Lion, Eagle and Human. These are the signs Taurus (Aldebaran), Leo (Regulus), Scorpio (Antares) and Aquarius (Fomalhaut) respectively. You can see these Archangels on the corners of the Rider-Waite tarot deck on the Wheel of Fortune and The World, both cards which have quite a dramatic, fateful feel about them.

Regulus Into Virgo

Back in August 2014, we had a New Moon conjunct Regulus, this was the first New Moon to hit Regulus since it changed signs to Virgo. This Moon makes an appropriate marker stone for the activation of the new Virgo/Regulus energy. I know personally I was still very much experiencing the old paradigm Regulus energy when I wrote this post in early 2011, the keywords were then focused very much on Regulus’s super-star, 3d/material world qualities and less on its spiritual potential. “Early English astrologers made it (Regulus) a portent of glory, riches, and power to all born under its influence” and this fixed star is generally considered fortunate, courageous, successful and all those great qualities associated with the sun sign Leo. But as we have seen over the last 2000 years, Regulus has its negative side. “It gives violence, destructiveness, military honor of short duration, with ultimate failure, imprisonment, violent death” Bernadette Brady associates Regulus with downfall which may be just anticipating the fall from grace which is happening now with some of the elite.

The new paradigm for Regulus will not happen over night. A new thought form is being ruminated and we are a still in the process of transition. Presently Regulus is the true divine-masculine energy which has been highjacked and used at its lowest, crudest vibration. When this happens I believe that is when the super-success of Regulus flips over into a ‘downfall’. Another misuse of this transformational energy would be to think that the only solution to this testosterone fest is to rip the balls off our feisty Lion. But we really don’t want a feminised, impotent neuter cat either! That is certainly not what the transition to Virgo is all about. What I hope for is some sort of Hieros Gamos. The inner marriage within ourselves. The transition makes us think of the Egyptian Sphinx, which has the head of a goddess and body of a Lion. “When the nature of the world is revealed, then the mystery of the Sphinx will no longer exist.” ~ Alice Bailey [1]

Sphinx Power

Regulus VirgoA google search on the web will take you to some excellent articles on what other astrologers are saying about this event. Michael Lutin says “We stand at this very moment on the threshold of a new age: the age of Regulus In Virgo. The Age Of The Common Woman. Looking back about two thousand years ago, we see that sometime around the time when Regulus entered Leo, the sign from which it is now departing, Julius Caesar was being born. As were the grandparents of Jesus Christ.” Not long after Regulus’s entry into Leo, Christianity was adopted as the religion of the Holy Roman Empire and therefore the whole of Europe.

Michael ends the article with the story of the Pope opening the letters given to him by the children of Fatima from the Virgin Mary. “It was said that when the Pope opened the last one, he fainted. And never revealed the contents to the world. It’s time now…. Wouldn’t you like to know what was in that letter? “Per corem Leonis in signo virginis in sororitatem steallarum te salvamus” which, roughly translated, means, “Regulus is in Virgo, so move over boys. The Patriarchy is fucked.”. However patriarchy’s Regulus falling from grace, could instead be a fall into grace.

“With Regulus about to move into Virgo, it seems so appropriate and timely as we consider a world ruled by powerful elites and societies ruled by money and power. Now we have Regulus move into the sign of service, resourcefulness, technology, skill and duty, as we consider waste, global resources, efficiency and how to get things working better. This shift seems timely to say the least. We are all called to a service of some kind, helping to shape a better world.” ~ C*I*A
I would agree and this reflects what I said earlier about humanity shifting from a service-to-self to a service-to-others mentality. The major problem though, is that it’s hard to feel like you want to be “of service” if you are essentally already living as a slave. The reason so many of the public are craving fame through the phenomenon of the “selfie” and TV shows like ‘The X factor’ is precisely because they are subconsciously grasping at the lost sovereignty of the human race.

    • UBQW, HHAHHAA!! LMAO!! You are too funny!
      Seems like our Ancient Alien guy is never going to live down that hairdo! Or for that matter, neither will Donald Trump! It is challenging to live up to those Leo hair standards! 😉

    • From an evolutionary standpoint the sign of Virgo is the last of the signs in the lower hemisphere and a natural next step from Leo. We ignite the solar magnificence of our own creative fire in LEO. The natural next step then in Virgo is to perfect and hone our native talent in service to others. This is the last phase in the six fold process of self realization. The rough diamond is honed and faceted revealing the light within in greater clarity through service to others. Watch who shows up now to present you with an opportunity to put your talents to work now through the 1st week of September. You may be called to take the stage boldly and shine your brightly reclaiming a deeper sense of your own creative power. How confident are you in value and beauty of the unique contribution of your own essential self? The more you share the more you may find the importance of what you uniquely have to contribute deeply confirmed in the heart of you.

      I’ve been watching this transition of the royal star to it’s “Age of Virgo” (for the next 2160 years! ) with fascination as our leaders have been making an effort to “step down from the throne” roll up their shirt sleeves (literally!) and appear as one of the little people (Virgo).

  2. “0 -1 Degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces are beginnings subject to change. Mutable signs always signify adaptability, restlessness, and change. They can be vacillating and weak. In predictive astrology, what has begun is subject to change.”

    Apparently – according to So perhaps some noisy but weak leadership on the horizon?

    • And the world stock markets in meltdown as FTSE loses 56bn off its shares! US markets are currently stopped from trading! Sun Regulus conj in Virgo but square Jupiter and Saturn – a sign of contraction and recession usually. Virgo reduces the price of everything… Virgo loves the bargain basement! For anyone who deals in shares, a great time to buy cheap and hoard!!!

  3. Hi Roberto

    What a fabulous photo! Thank you!
    The animal thing is a tough one! I am either a Virgo vegan or a Leo carnivore.. ridiculous I know but I’ve learned to listen to my body. I can go weeks without meat and all I want is rice and veg. I was in such a phase recently when Marina and I had a day out and while waiting for her to come back fro the loo, I was overcome by HUUUUGE love for the cows on the farm we were visiting! I mean I actually teared up and I wanted to HUG all of them and I thanked them for what they are. Then a few days ago I realised I was feeling cold in my inner body. SO it was time to eat flesh because biscuits (cookies) just won’t do! I have to vacillate between feeling compassion for the animals and accepting everything is made of the same illusionary stuff so its no matter.
    You’re right about the Regulus exuberance! I think I prefer it when the Sun goes into Virgo too. In Leo its still 12th house.
    Re your Saturn and Neptune… eeuugh… been there! Felt soggy and did pictures of drowning. But don’t forget, Saturn and Neptune either make dams or reservoirs – or open floodgates. Both useful in their way!
    I like to put me first by ignoring the housework and painting instead! Then there’s no me! Just lovely dreamy oily colour. Very Hydra!

  4. I was born Feb 19th 1980 at 928am in Toronto with Regulus and FormalHaut royal stars in my natal chart. I am a rainbow warrior shaman / magician and using ancient Atlantean super crystal wands to amplify thoughts into lasers to alter matter. I clear away chemtrails, demons and bring rain to areas of drought. Summoning archangel Michael and ETS to assist in battle is my passion against lucifer, CERN, HAARP and the illuminati.
