The following article appeared on Marina Macario’s website, Darkstar Astrology and in conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn, REALLY big changes are ahead!
by Marina Macario
The New Moon on August 25 2014 is at 2º Virgo and falls within 2.5º of the royal star of Regulus, the heart of the Lion. This is significant because Regulus entered tropical Virgo from Leo on November 28th 2011*. This is the first New Moon to hit Regulus since it changed signs. So I would hope to see this moon reflecting back to us something of what this huge astrological event means for the collective. The transition makes me think of the Egyptian Sphinx, which has the head of a goddess and body of a Lion.
“When the nature of the world is revealed, then the mystery of the Sphinx will no longer exist.”
~ Alice Bailey 
A google search on the web will take you to some excellent articles to what other astrologers who are making the connection of Regulus’s entry into Virgo with the return of the goddess.
“We stand at this very moment on the threshold of a new age: the age of Regulus In Virgo. The Age Of The Common Woman. Looking back about two thousand years ago, we see that sometime around the time when Regulus entered Leo, the sign from which it is now departing, Julius Caesar was being born. As were the grandparents of Jesus Christ. No one would have ever been able to predict the evolutionary story that would unfold from those events. Just think of it. Julius Caesar and Christ’s little old Jewish Gramma, who could think they would end up together and evolve the union of the Roman Empire and Judaism into the Roman Catholic Church!”
~ Michael Lutin
Michael ends the article with the story of the Pope opening the letters given to him by the children of Fatima from the Virgin Mary.
“It was said that when the Pope opened the last one, he fainted. And never revealed the contents to the world. It’s time now…. Wouldn’t you like to know what was in that letter? “Per corem Leonis in signo virginis in sororitatem steallarum te salvamus” which, roughly translated, means, “Regulus is in Virgo so move over, Boys. The Patriarchy is fucked.”
Regulus is one of the 4 archangel stars and the largest that actually falls on the ecliptic, the Suns path.
“Early English astrologers made it a portent of glory, riches, and power to all born under its influence” and it is generally considered fortunate, courageous, successful and all those great qualities associated with the sunsign Leo. But Regulus has its negative side. “It gives violence, destructiveness, military honor of short duration, with ultimate failure, imprisonment, violent death.”
Bernadette Brady associates Regulus with downfall which may be just anticipating its fall from grace.
“With Regulus about to move into Virgo, it seems so appropriate and timely as we consider a world ruled by powerful elites and societies ruled by money and power. Now we have Regulus move into the sign of service, resourcefulness, technology, skill and duty, as we consider waste, global resources, efficiency and how to get things working better. This shift seems timely to say the least. We are all called to a service of some kind, helping to shape a better world.”
REGULUS INTO VIRGO
For approximately the last 600 years or so Regulus has been in Leo decan 3 which is ruled by Mars in both Chaldean and triplicity rulership. This makes it doubly aggressive and only amplifies Regulus’s conquering and pillaging side further. I decided to use the year 2000 positions of Regulus because most people reading my blog are going to be of the generation of Regulus in Leo (For now!) so my appraisal of Leo decan 2 includes the influence of Regulus.
“They are always right, their rule is absolute, any challenge to their authority is seen as betrayal. Loyality, loyality and more loyality, this is the number one demand of their loved ones. In return for their devotion to you, (and by golly they are devoted), they expect you to defend the values of the pride to the nth degree. Any deviation is a sign of rebellion and must be crushed… Bottom line, the lion is a man-eating beast. It can be bitterly cruel when threatened. You really want these folk on your side for they will fight and defend you until they have spilt their last drop of blood….”
This new Moon falls in Virgo decan 1 which is a totally different creature but is still ruled by the Sun! (and Mercury by triplicity). The energy is still regal but Queenly rather than Kingly.
“These seers usually develop their sensitivity after a period of suffering, dutiful caring and even a broken heart. These folk are good at medicating those who are grieving. They become the opiate for their patients, friends, lovers, children, parents and any neighbour hood strays…”
So as a result of 2000 years of bloodshed and suffering, the human race has through a broken heart, learned to open its heart chakra. It has also individuated and developed an ego. We are all one yes, but we are all unique individuals also. I like to think of the Suns symbol as both a halo and an eye. Mercury has the healing influence and we may go through a stage of self-medicating to get over the trauma when it becomes apparent just how badly we as humans have been abused.
There is both a Yod and learning triangle in the New Moon chart. Attached to the Yod is Venus/ Lilith in tight square to Mars/Saturn. A battle of the sexes? The Saturn/Mars on Zubeneschemali could prove interesting as Robson says with Mars it brings:
“High ambitions, success through energy, influential position, forceful writer and speaker”
and with Saturn:
“Cautious, reserved, studious, economical, analytical, good chemist or detective, good judge of human nature”.
Both the Goddesses are greatly empowered by the star Merak in the heart of the great bear. Merak brings command and domination but is also empowering. I think the mix of fiery goddess energy plus quiet caution and sound judgement mean that through conflict, understanding is found and it all ends well and amicably. The Yod points to Uranus Rx on Alpheratz, still awaiting to break free of its change. You can see the very strong theme of the transition at this New Moon. It shows the evolution of humans being of service (Slaves) to the Sovereign to one of being sovereign beings in service tohumanity. This New Moon gives us a glimpse of the future where there shall be sovereignty for all!
In a different article, Marina stated:
So what’s so special about Regulus? He is certainly of our time. He is the X factor and the superstar. The Elvis of the fixed stars. He ranks as ultra-fortunate, the most benefic star in the Universe. Medieval astrologers said it would bring glory, riches and fame to all those born under it, and that it was the “Royall Starre”.
Astrologer Anne Ortelee stated:
Regulus the fixed star of kings, the heart of the Lion, Part of the Royal Cross in the sky, described in the Book of Revelations as the Lion in the South, one of the Persian Watch stars, leaves Leo, where Regulus has been for 2160 years and moves into Virgo. We can expect Kings to die. We can expect the peasants to assume the power. Workers will become the leaders. As a collective, we are experiencing an empowerment of the servant class and will be developing a new way and understanding of how we look at power over the next 2,160 years as Regulus moves slowly through Virgo at the rate of 1 degree every 72 years.
In5D Addendum: The timing for Regulus entering Virgo is ideal with Pluto in Capricorn until 2023. The energies are ripe for an amazing transformation of consciousness while toppling down the patriarchal system that has brought us war, materialism, greed and ego through various divide and conquer techniques.
