Throughout his long reign Louis XIV — never lost the hold over his people he had assumed at the beginning. He succeeded his father on May 14,
Jupiter has a stately, ceremonial aspect to its nature. Both the Sun and Jupiter are the rulers of the second ray of love-wisdom, the major ray of this solar system and prime qualitative goal for most of humanity. Magus — magician, who controls the lower elementals and who can direct the higher daevic forces.
The Magician tarot card illustrates the forces that the Magus invokes from above and anchors below. It is also the first card of the major arcana, hence has a connection to the first ray force that pours through Leo.
The five-pointed star corresponds to the fifth sign Leo, the fifth ray that pours through Leo and the mental strength of Leo. The seventh ray of Ceremonial Order or Magic is associated with Leo, as described later. Magnesium — Produces an intense white light when burnt — similarities to the Sun and an important factor in magic and alchemy.
Magnetic — possessing an extraordinary power or ability to attract. The charisma of Leo. Yet when the power of the Will working through Leo is considered, along with the force of the fifth ray mental pentagram and the magical ray of Uranus, a potent mix is created; combine all that with Leo the Lionheart, a synthesis of head and heart is possible.
Leo is ruled by the Sun at a personality, soul and monadic level, veiling Neptune and Uranus at the two higher levels. These latter planets bring in the energies of the sixth ray of devotion and idealism, plus the seventh ray of ceremonial order or magic: When Uranus controls, the Leo person is significantly the true observer, detached from the material side of life, but utilising it as he pleases.
His spiritual consciousness is capable of great expression and he can be as has oft been pointed out by astrologers both an electric, dynamic leader, a pioneer in new fields of endeavour and also a magnetic centre of a group whether the group is small, as in a home, or vast as in a nation.
He is then polarised above the diaphragm, for the lower more material aspects of life have really no great appeal to him; he is then profoundly conscious of his own identity, and this makes him dwell definitely in a state of self-awareness, with its consequently abstracting powers.
He is instantly aware, once he is spiritually awakened, of his motivating impulses, and this leads him to an imposed self-discipline—the thing the Leo subject sorely needs and which must always be self-imposed and self-applied for he brooks no disciplinary measures which others may seek to impose.
Discipline imposed by people upon the Leo person leads invariably to revolt and rebellion and the expression of that which the discipline is intended to eradicate.
Discipline imposed by himself leads to the perfection of which he is notably capable. It will, when followed, lead the self-centred Leo consciousness into the decentralised, selfless Aquarian awareness.
It will alter the self-service of Leo into the group service of its polar opposite, Aquarius.
This fact will be increasingly understood as the advanced Leo subject makes his appearance. He will be distinguished by his personal freedom from outside control. He knows innately that he is king of himself, the ruler of his own life and, therefore, no planet is exalted and likewise no planet falls.
The power of the mind, as symbolised by Uranus, is lessened, for it is not the mind which in reality controls but the Self, or Soul, using and controlling the mind. The man is not then conditioned by his surroundings or life events but rules them with deliberation, bringing out of circumstances and environment that which he requires.
Leo is the polar opposite of the sign Aquarius, the age into which the world is moving. Hence the opposites of the individual and the group are emphasised. The world is emerging from the mass consciousness of Cancer into the individualised consciousness of Leo and the intense self-awareness that accompanies that.Louis XIV (Louis Dieudonné; 5 September – 1 September ), known as Louis the Great (Louis le Grand) or the Sun King (Roi Soleil), was a monarch of the House of Bourbon who reigned as King of France and Navarre from until his death in Mother: Anne of Austria.
