The decans above are as accurate as they can be within a ten degree orb. For a detailed exploration of your birthchart, please refer to the READINGS page.

NOTE: I started off using the ancient Chaldean rulers of the decanates, but will be adding in fresh material relating to the Triplicity rulers in 2015. Click on the links above for a more detailed interpretation of each decan using the fixed stars and celebrity examples. You can also apply the decan character traits to your Ascendant or Moon using these zodiac positions: Leo decan 1 0° – 10°Leo decan 2 10° – 20° and Leo decan 3 20° – 30°.

  1. Both the sun and Saturn are in Leo third decan in my natal chart, in conjunction, but the description doesn’t sound much like me. I can be fierce. I will protect those I love. This fierce urge to protect is the way I feel toward the earth. I could cheerfully rake my claws over those who harm her. Sometimes I definitely feel like a predator. But I don’t boss people around, don’t think I’m always right, etc. Is this because I was born toward the end of Leo, on August 21? Some day I will get a complete natal chart done because I need a precise analysis.

    • you’re born on the cusp so you’re intended to have both Leo & some of Virgo

    • Wow that weird, I feel the same way and my birthday is also august 21

  2. Its also because you’ve got many other planets that are important to your chart and those signs and planets interact with your sun (ego) in different ways, your moon (mentality and feelings) makes up a large part of your personality. The houses in our chart also reveal a lot about your sun. In short, these descriptions of personality are like one, albeit one important, shade of personality factor amongst many.

  3. I am dedicating this quote to those Majestic and Regal beings with natal Sun in LEO as well as to the Immortal Solar Radiance that burns within the heart of EVERY Sun Sign!

    “I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun.” -Suzanne Collins (sun in leo, Decan 2), The Hunger Games
