Regal Leo and Audio Musical Preferences. Music Under the Zodiac is the name of my upcoming book. As a musician, I have an interest in the zodiac. There are many parallels, for example:
- We use the well-tempered scale. It has twelve 12 tones within the octave. There are 12 zodiac signs.
- We have four types of triads. They are major, minor diminished and augmented. The zodiac has four elements, They are earth, air, fire and water. Earth is dense. The diminished triad is the most compact. Fire is the most effusive of the signs. An augmented triad is the most expansive of the triads. Water and air parallel minor and major respectively. They fit in their size of 7 half tones from the first note between the earth and fire triads. Earth uses 6 half steps, fire uses eight.
- Speaking of triads, there are three categories of zodiac signs. They are set by cardinal, fixed and mutable. Cardinal is the month that begins a season. Like the 1st month of Spring under Aries is cardinal. Fixed is the second month of the season. It is Taurus in Spring. The third, a mutable zodiac sign, ends the season. It is called mutable because it prepares for the next trio of the summer zodiac months. This last month of Spring is Gemini.
What About Regal Leo?
Leo, church of Saint-Austremoine, France
When listening to music: Leo delights in excitement and warmth of feeling. The music can be either very romantic with a slow pace or quick and fiery. Music must be heart felt. Honesty of expression is important. Leo does not like to play “second fiddle”. Among the recommended instruments for expression as a musician we could include: trumpet, flute, piccolo, piano or saxophone. In performance Leo should overcome a tendency to be the center of attention by playing either too quickly or too loudly. Naturally, solo work is preferable to working with an ensemble for this regal sign of the Sun. Please feel free to share this post.
