Leo Rising Decans

0º to 10º Leo Decan 1 Rising * (Leo Triplicity.)

Talent and prophetic ability are here, usually passed down from their ancestors.

10º to 20º Leo Decan 2 Rising (Sagittarius Triplicity)

These individuals are either extremely confident in relationships or suffer from a total lack of ego. Sometimes they are attracted to extremely egotistical and larger than life characters. However, even the most insecure of these will be perceived as bossy, since they feel confident only if they have complete control over their partner. With this mother bear energy, Leo 2 rising will easily become the parent and caretaker of the relationship.

Without a doubt, this must be the most authoritarian ascendant you can have. This is the boss no question.

Their demeanour will be very upright and regal too and they will be the sort to carry ‘airs and graces’. The daring, impulsive leaps and courage are most pronounced in their love relationships. A pouncing action will be one of their bedroom tricks! Be prepared to be hunted and stalked relentlessly. This decan is the typical man-eater.
