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.
Watch 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.
