The Mind - The Body
The Ultimate Connection!
Leo begins in later July somewhere between 20th and 24th of the month and extends until later August between the 21st and 24th. As I stated in earlier pages, the beginnings and ends of Astrological signs are mathematical calculations based on the actual movement of the Earth around the Sun. Astrological Sign's beginning moment change each year but they do have similar trends in 4 year cycles.
EXACTLY 30 degrees of arc in a 360 degree circle around EARTH is the standard that defines all the Astrological Signs [30 degrees X 12 signs] and the ZODIAC.... EACH !!, Astrology Sign is an absolute measure of distance, 30 degrees 0 minutes 0 seconds of arc out of 360 total. That, only, sets the boundaries of the Signs not a certain number of days. AND. There is no such thing as a cusp when it comes to SUN SIGNS. That's why some people born on April 21st are ARIES and some are TAURUS, also that's why some folks born on June 22nd are GEMINI and some people born on September 23rd are still VIRGO'S.
At Sunrise, each year on the first day of Leo, 0 degrees of Leo is on the Eastern horizon. For Greenwich Mean Time, by definition, that makes a person born at that time have an Leo Ascendant of 0 degrees. Each Astrology Sign spends exactly 30 degrees of arc, approximately 2 hours on the Ascendant each day, making the Earth rotate through the entire Zodiac each day. 2 hours [120 minutes] divided by 30 degrees equals 1 degree every 4 minutes. Time being a living entity, is continually moving in the forward direction as the Earth spins within the Zodiac.
On the last day of Leo each year 30 degrees of Leo is on the Eastern horizon at sunrise making people born soon after that moment a Virgo with a Virgo Ascendant.
Each morning of Leo an additional degree of the sign is on the Eastern horizon at Sunrise and Leo sunrises are around 5:30 AM each day.
By knowing the approximate time of sunrise, using the 2 hour per sign rule and adding 1 degree each day; it is possible to realistically approximate a persons Ascendant.
EXAMPLES: (1) Born on Aug 3rd at 6:49 AM; 9 degrees Leo would be on the ascendant. Subtract 5.30 from 6.49 giving you a difference of 1.19 hr's 1 hour =15 degrees of arc + 19 minutes=4 3/4 degrees; totaling 19 3/4 degrees. Add 19 3/4 degrees to 9 degrees of Leo which equals 28 3/4 degrees of Leo on the Ascendant...... (2) Born on August 16 6:02 PM; 22 degrees Leo is on the Eastern horizon at Sunrise. 18:02 or 6:02 PM - 5:30 AM = 12 hours and 32 minutes. 12 hours = 180 degrees + 32 minutes = 8 degrees; totaling 188 degrees. 188 + 22 degrees Leo = 30 degrees of Aquarius as an Ascendant. 30 degrees of Aquarius and 0 degrees Pisces are very close together. Take your pick.
[If a little confused about the examples, please read all 12 of the Interactive Horoscopes to better understand the concept presented here.]
You can now look to one of the 12 options below for an accurate personality profile. Some may have to look at more than one caricature because you can't accurately calculate an ascendant or you don't know your birth time. Very, Very rarely is a persons birth TIME accurate, unless the mother or father happens to study Astrology. It is a good idea to check the sign on either side of your calculated Ascendant or Moon to see which fits the best.
If you've had your horoscope done you can look up the exact information there. That chart will also give your Moon Sign. The Moon sign can also be gotten from an Ephemeris [book of planetary tables].
These dissertations apply generally to the Astrology combinations listed. For absolutely accurate interpretations a full horoscope is required but these should give an general indication to the individuals personality unless an all powerful aspect dominates the native, i.e. Uranus square Mars which is conjunct the node of Mars.
