Leo decan 2 is ruled by Jupiter. The sun blazes through the lynx, the watersnake, the lion’s mouth, the great bear, the crab and the great ship from August 3 – 12. You can see straight away that these are a different breed of cat from the sedate and Saturnian Leo decan 1. Jupiter gives it more fire and the influence of the defensive crab is replaced by the overtly passionate water-snake. We also have less of the religious influence too. The energy is primal, spontaneous and uncensored. This does not mean these people aren’t spiritual, it’s just that they don’t like bowing down to a Guru, or following established paths to enlightenment. These pioneers will always prefer the road less traveled.
Jupiter ruling here will of course exaggerate their bad traits as well as their good. And let’s face it, with a big cat, these traits are going to be extreme one way or the other. Leo is known as the dramatic sign, so here we will certainly get full-blown theatrics. These folk, are typically mouthy. So they are outspoken, fearless in their reasoning and dive into debates with gusto. Combining Zeus with the Lion King and you get someone who relishes power and very happy to give orders. Of course they will be accused of being bossy, but at the same time they are wonderful at organizing, when most people can’t be bothered. You can always rely them to cut the crap out of the chaos, while other signs may just faff-about politely, not wanting to appear rude. Leo decan 2 does tough love extraordinarily well, but sometimes make enemies because of this. The roaring mouth of the lion does not sugarcoat, and you may be left with an embarrassing love-bite if you been fool enough to put your delicate neck within mauling distance.
