Modern Astrology For discussions on Modern Astrology only. (Note: Typically, modern astrology is defined as using techniques developed around the late 1800s by Theosophists. Specifically it relies on psychological, evolutionary, karmic, and non-western interpretation approaches and includes Neptune, Uranus and Pluto, and non-Ptolemaic aspects. The focus is more on psychological chart interpretation instead of prediction.)

Re: The desperation to weaken Leo in modern astrology.

"Leo Moon, Leo Sun, Leo Rising generally when they aren't in aresholey signs are great!" <- I can agree to this! So far those that I have met have been having my back being supportive and loyal and loving. I know this aunt, she is Scorpio sun and Leo moon, man~ she is the best. She is so caring and loving, if any day I lose her, I would definitely cry my eyes out.

As for me, My 1st house is having a hard time to balance with my Leo sun. I like to be private, quiet and isolated and my sun say no no, go out and shine and be happy then Pluto was like no no, that endless push and pull, LOL

I'm the same my emotions want to be out there displaying the outgoing me me me and then Cap/satunr wants to be all serious and Pluto wants to be all mysterious etc and Jupiter wants to go all out with the libra thing. But for you use the Leo placement to your advantage and go out there! I'm using me emotional Leo moon but I have to tone it down a bit as the bad side of Leo may come out being its emotional Leo and not Sun Leo. I've come the realisation that emotion is just a feeling its not actually reality so when I do feel the push and pull I ignore it and use my placements to my advantage and when I need them eg if I need Pluto and Saturn its when I want to be taken seriously and need the respect and to be respectful but if I want fun I use Jupiter and if I want to have fun and be the leader and centre of attention I use Leo. I'm learning not to give a **** and look after myself and care what I think then I can help others and I feel that's a great way and mentality to look at things as no one really gives a ****.

Plute! I've made a new thread Pisces. You need to look at the link I added on it! As we can't chat about it on here or the moderators will have issues!

Actually, she writes something very interesting about how mercury and Venus were assigned to their signs. Never heard of this, but it does make sense.
She actually didn't write that. She credits Wikipedia.

There's nothing at that site about signs (presumably defined as everyone with the same sun sign) except what kinds of food they like and how they cook. I don't understand what "Leos like quality foods and will get the best if they can afford it" and "Leo chefs are kings of the kitchen. They like to have people help as they are of a group-oriented sign" has to do with weakening Leo.

Much less do I understand how Scorpio's purported food tastes ("Meat rare, root vegetables. Likes strong pungent tasting foods. Since Scorpio rules sex and sex organs, fallic foods such as brussell sprouts, pickles, and tomatillos are on the list of ingredients for this sign," and "Scorpians loves Anchovies, Clams, Eel, Lobster, Oysters, Sashimi, Snails (Escargot), Snake, blue cheeses. 100 year old eggs would be something worth serving. They eat the unexpected") and preference to "make a dinner by themselves and then surprise their audience" constitute a portrayal of Scorpio as the strongest sign. There's nothing at all here about how strong or weak the signs are, let alone compared to other signs.

Re: The desperation to weaken Leo in modern astrology.

If there were ever an argument by skeptics against intelligent people taking astrology seriously, this thread would provide many examples. Osamenor, that sun-sign "cookbook" just takes the cake!

People with healthy egos in general are maligned and since Leo is popularly associated with the ego, there’s a little symbolic scapegoat to pin this particular weakness on while people try to evade the fact they have unhealthy relationships with their egos

Similarly, Cancer gets maligned because it’s associated with emotion and it’s pretty clear to me at least that so many people are lacking in emotional awareness and ability to be honest with themselves or anyone else about what they really feel

It’s similar to any sign that is one of the current whipping boys. It always marks something that the collective is grappling with and from that POV is actually quite fascinating, although maddening

Unfortunately, I can see these aspects of pop astrology invading sites like this one where people strive to dive deeper. The glorification of certain signs and the maligning of others is still there altho less pronounced

I think because my 12th house is cusped by Leo I’ve had this particular relationship with my own ego where I’ve felt like I am not allowed to love myself or to be centered in my body yet I so desperately want to. That need becomes suppressed, just background music playing on repeat until I noticed it and began working on it. But simultaneously that suppression, that unhealthy relationship, made it to where my ego would express itself in ways that I wouldn’t own or I’d feel strangely disembodied from as if that wasn’t even me who said that thing or did that thing. So after noticing this odd aspect of myself I had to start thinking about ego, presence, relationship with the self and I know that modern western society is completely not conducive at all to a healthy relationship with the self

The funniest thing is is that people glorify certain signs perhaps as being powerful in some form when if they looked at what they’re more inclined to fire hatred toward, there would be the truest key to their own personal power
Well said.

I think it's a waste of time complaining about how a sign is represented, whether it be among pop astrology sources or more respected astrologers. There are always many, many angles to each sign, and how it manifests depends on the maturity of the person. And sure, maybe some signs are slightly more glorified/vilified in different decades, but that often goes back to what planets are in the sky at the time and the general energies in the time/place.

Leos can be amazing, and they can be awful too. You could write pages on each sign with exactly those sentiments.
