LEO > pitta-kapha / 3rd-4th cakram / Aphrodite & Artemis

Okay, first I just have to say as a Gemini I absolutely LOVE finding all the ways the things I study correlate! With that being said, I really want to share with you how I’ve seen the crossover in studying the Cakra system, the dosha in Ayurveda, the 7 main Greek Goddesses as a part of the psyche, the 10 planets & of course - the 12 zodiac signs!

There is so much relationship between each, I love seeing how so many modalities & ancient wisdoms correlate & can unite as One! So without further ado, here is our generous Leo //

Leo > our performer, child, king & queen of the zodiac! We step out of the depths of Cancer & right into the playful & powerful sign of Leo! Leo naturally represents the 3rd & 4th cakram, Pitta & Kapha & the lovely Goddesses Aphrodite & Artemis.

Leo is that fixed fire so it’s not quite so wild & mutable as say Sagittarius or Aries. That fire element brings in Pitta, but the fixed quality brings in Kapha. Kapha is earth & water and this energy correlates to Leo because Kapha energy is all about the 5 physical senses & pleasure. And guess what? Leo is ALL about sensory pleasure! Delicious food, exciting games, orgasmic sex – you name it, Leo wants it! The Pitta brings in the fiery drive & the Kapha brings the desire to ground & enjoy the material world & ego body. The 3rd & 4th cakram are right there with this & transmit all the lovey dovey, ooey gooey, hot passion enthusiasm Leo has for life! Leo is totally childlike & loves to play so easily taps into their 3rd cakram. They also are the authentic self, unique self expression & live life from their hearts more than their heads, so they often rely on their 4th (heart) cakram to move energy.

All that love has to make Leo parallel the archetype Aphrodite as they are all for love & beauty. However, Aphrodite is also the creative woman & Leo is *highly creative. Ruled by the Sun, it’s energy radiates through Leo always sparking & inspiring new ideas to manifest! Artemis makes her appearance here too as she is the competitor & Leo loves a good game & can be very competitive! They know they’re good at things ; )

So like the Moon, the Sun is a super potent aspect in one’s birth chart, so naturally it brings forth a couple more components. The Sun brings forth the 1st, 2nd & 5th cakram along with the Goddess Athena. The Sun represents our individual self expression & our sense of identity all which transmit their energy through the 1st cakram (identity), 2nd (emotionality) and 5th (expression). The 4th (heart) is here too of course! As for Miss Athena, she radiates the Sun energy as she is the Goddess of Crafts – a highly creative & wise goddess, she is authentic like Leo & it’s rulership the Sun <3 This correlation cluster is full of that super authentic, self-realized, creative expression!
