Regulus [Astro*Index]

Cor Leonis (the heart of the lion).

A fixed star, the most "royal" of the four royal stars. It is referred to by Ptolemy as "kardias lampros," the bright spot upon the heart. Ptolemy gives it the qualities of Mars and Jupiter. William Lilly delineated directions of planets to some fixed stars in Christian Astrology. Rheinhold Ebertin notes that the importance of Regulus "is accentuated by the nearness to the ecliptic" and says that positioned at the midheaven it will "raise the native to high positions in life, positions far exceeding the environment the native was born into." Ebertin determined the vitality of a fixed star in a chart using aspects and midpoint pictures.
