Leo Decan 1

Leo decan 1 is ruled by Saturn. The sun shimmers through the constellations of the Great Bear, the Crab and the Great Ship from July 23 to August 2. This section of the zodiac contains most of Sidereal Cancer, known as the Gate Of Man, where souls entered into incarnation. Directly opposite in Capricorn is where we find the Gate of Souls where the man leaves his physical body. In the heart of Cancer we find the beehive cluster of stars, which do resemble a little star nursery. This is an industrious zone though, and with Saturn ruling this decan we find a strong work ethic, family pride and a dutiful spirit.

Stately Elevators & Busy Bees

Leo decan 1 are extremely dedicated to their field of endeavor. Some may pursue a career for the sole reason of achieving high status. They need to be seen as the boss, the leader of the pack or the queen bee. They do not like to play the role of the underling. However they will doff their hat and play the loyal servant if they have to, anything to get up the ladder.

Leo Decan 1Watch your back though Caesar, these folk are trying on your crown when you are not looking. The biggest problem for this decan is coveting what others have and greed. Leo decan 1 can be overly defensive. If threatened, the Cancer shell can harden into Saturn armour. This is when the famous Leo pride only intensifies their resolve never to show their vulnerable soft core. Encased in that hard skull though is an incredible brain. The Egyptians saw the crab as their sacred scarab beetle.

  1. Thanks for all the wonderful insight! Wondering if I’m doing something wrong or has only Decan 1 been posted? Same goes for Gemini (in addition to Leo here)… I’m looking for Decan 3, for both… perhaps it gets posted later? Many thanks!

    • They have all been posted except Sag decan 3. I don’t understand why you can’t find them. There are links to the next Leo decans at the bottom of this page and all the decans are in the menu bar at the top of the site. Or are you talking about the forecasts. In that case you ned to go to the yearly ones where they have all forecasts for the decans on the one sign. So go to Leo and Gemini. Hope that helps.

    • oh my, I swear I keep looking and all the links lead to Leo Decan 1 :( :( yes, I was asking about forecasts… as always, I go to “monthly horoscopes” and scroll down… and after clicking on my decan, I magically end up on Decan 1 forecast :( Bummed. This hasn’t been happening before but now for some reason I am stuck.
