Regulus is one of the most benefic fixed stars in a chart. If you have an orb up to 5 degrees (most astrologers use up to 2 degrees however to be more correct) then you were born with the metaphorical blood of royalty in your veins. This is said because Regulus is one of the brightest stars in our sky, as well as laying on the ecliptic. In ancient times, Regulus was seen as the fixed star of royalty and the giver of great riches and success. He is the heart of the lion. The embodiment of Mars and Jupiter’s combined energy. He is fierce, but fair. Generous, loyal, and deeply respected. Though there is risk of going to far- those with Regulus strong in their chart may be too tempted by ego and let it get the best of them. In their rise to fame they may falter because of arrogance. If they do reach successful heights and let fame get to their head (either ignoring Jupiter’s goodwill or pushing boundaries too far) a steep decline can take place and a fall from grace. This can be avoided by being true to your heart and using your passion for the benefit of others instead of feeding your ego.
There is definitely an aspect of courage and honor associated with Regulus. This can be open, physical bravery, and the urge to jump into action when you or another is in danger. It can show military honors or intense respect by others for things you have accomplished that others dared not to try. This is especially so when this fixed star is in conjunction to your Midheaven. It may be more of an internal energy when coupled with your moon, yet the desire is still strong to be recognized for that internal bravery since you may not have the means to show it. Either way- you’re a great person to have around in high pressure situations.
For those who don’t have Regulus in aspect, the house placement will show where you will use this Mars/Jupiter combination energy- therefor where you can be successful and find motivation to expand this area of life. It will add a destined sort of vigor to that house and its affairs.
