Leo

Leo (♌) is the fifth astrological sign of the Zodiac, originating from the
constellation of Leo. It spans the Zodiac between the 120th and 149th
degree of celestial longitude. In astrology, Leo is considered to be a
"masculine", positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered a fire sign and
is one of four fixed signs ruled by the Sun.



Leo Mythology

In Roman mythology, Leo is identified with the Nemean lion that Hercules was
required to skin a huge lion whose pelt was impervious to stone of metal. Having
wrestled it with his bare hands and choked it to death, he used the beast's own
claws to skin it. He then took the pelt as a cloak if invulnerable armour and donned
the lion's head as a helmet.

Leo is also said to be the lion in the tragic tale of the lovers Pyramus and Thisbe.
In his Metamorphoses, Ovid tells how their parents forbade them to marry. The two
talked secretly through a chink in the wall between their houses and one day made
a plan to meet outside the city beside a certain mulberry tree with white berries.
When Thisbe came to the meeting place, Pyramus was not there, but she was
startled by a lion, bloody from a kill. As she ran away, her veil slipped and fluttered
past the lion which snatched it with it's paw. When Pyramus arrived he saw
Thisbe's torn veil, bloody from the Lion and assumed that his love had been killed.
In anguish, he killed himself with his sword but at that moment, Thisbe ran back
and flung herself on her dead lover's body before taking the sword and thrusting it
into her own flesh. Their blood coloured the white mulberries red and they have
remained this way ever since. Zeus placed the veil in the sky as Coma Berenices,
floating down by the lion.

The name Regulus is believed to have originated with the astronomer Copernicus
and means "the little king." In the ancient Sumerian civilization, Regulus was known
as the Star of the King. Along the Euphrates, Regulus was known as "The Flame,"
or the "Red Fire." In the Ancient World, it was believed that this star made a
contribution towards the heat of summer. Around 2300BC, the summer solstice
was located near Regulus, meaning that around that period, the Sun was located
near Regulus at the start of summer, and the combined heat of the Sun and
Regulus was believed to produce the excessive heat of that season. This role later
became that of Sirius from the precessional shift of the Earth's axis.

In the ancient Chinese zodiac, these stars were said to represent a horse.

Regulus is one of the four Royal Stars of the ancient Persians. The other three are
Aldebaran, Antares and Fomalhaut.
