Musical Leo Does More than Roar!

Musical Leo Centers Around the Key of F major-D minor

Musical Leo Centers Around the Key of F major-D minor. Here are some typical issues that music written in the key of one flat can help cure. This is because Leo rules over the core of the body.

  • Do you feel that you are too timid or shy? Or, is your subdued personality preventing you from a promotion on your job?
  • On the physical side: Do you have poor posture or pains in your back or spine? Are you fearful of possible heart problems?

Here’s the good news: What if you could alleviate any of these problems by relaxing in an arm chair (like Henry VIII below) and  just listening to music. Better yet, do all this free of charge!

Musical Leo
How can music make you feel like a king?


The zodiac has been called the wheel of life and circle of little animals. The English word zodiac derives from zōdiacus. It is  Latinized form of the Ancient Greek zōidiakòs kýklos (ζῳδιακός κύκλος). This word “cycle or circle of little animals”. Zōidion (ζῴδιον) is the diminutive of zōion (ζῷον, “animal”). The name reflects the prominence of animals (and mythological hybrids) among the twelve signs.The key of Leo has one flat. You can see this on the diagram of the Circle of Fifths. One flat is connected to F major and D minor.

Circle of Fifths fits like a glove over the 12 zodiac signs. The key of Leo is set at 11:00 o’clock.

So What Can Music in the Key of Musical Leo do for You?

Mental Health– It develops self assurance. You can become the life of any party and gives you the aura of a great entertainer. Music in this key encourages generosity and a kind, open heart. Its sound allows you to be able to take action whenever needed.

Physical Health- Leo rules the back, spine and heart. They are at the body’s core. Anyone with back pain, posture issues or heart problems would do well to listen to the vibes of music in the key of Leo. To get more background on this issue check out the  internal link below. Classical music is best because it is often identified by key signature. Look on youtube for free examples: Symphony in F or D minor, quartet, sonata, trio etc. Even if you feel no benefit from this advice, at least you will have listened to some great music!

Godly circle is hidden and coded

Godly Circle Diameter 66/ Circumference 207

Godly Circle Diameter 66/ Circumference 207.


A circle (black), which is measured by its circumference (C), diameter (D) in cyan, and radius (R) in red; its centre (O) is in magenta.

circle is a simple closed shape. It is the set of all points in a plane that are at a given distance from a given point, the centre.  It is the curve traced out by a point that moves so that its distance from a given point is constant.

How the ancient four elements structure the circle: Four elements were known in antiquity.  They were recognized through the Middle Ages:  (1) Earth (2) air (3)  fire and (4) water.  In the 21st century, we laugh at this. After all, we know there are 92 re-generative and re-occurring elements. But in the process, we have overlooked a lost and long fogtteen code: The 4 basic elements of organic chemistry are carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen. These are the actual elements behind the enigmatic, alchemical four just listed.

  • The source of fire on stars is hydrogen, atomic number-1
  • Our air is comprised of mostly nitrogen, atomic number-7.  Nitrogen accounts for 78% of the atmosphere, oxygen is second in size with 21%.
  • The hardest earth substance is diamond. It is consists of compressed carbon.  Carbon’s atomic number is -6.
  • By atomic weight, our water is mostly oxygen Water’s formula is H2O. One atom of  oxygen has 8 protons and 8 neutrons. Two hydrogen atoms only have 2 protons, i.e. one per atom. An atom of oxygen is approximately 16 times heavier than an atom of hydrogen.

The atomic number total of the chemical four elements is:  1 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 22. Twenty-two, by the four elements,  goes around the zodiac three times. Thus, 3 x 22 = 66.

Godly Circle on the Tree of Life

The three tenses of time in Hebrew equate with 66. This is by the ancient rules of gematria. Look this term up on Wikipedia.

(1) “Was” (past)  It is spelled with Hebrew letters (hei-yud-hei) with a gematria ( numerical equivalency) of 20;

(2) “Am” (present)  (hei-vav-hei) with a gematria of 16.  

(3) ” Will be” (future)  (yud-hei-yud-hei) with a gematria of 30.

The total of the three tenses becomes 20 +16+ 30 = 66. We have just seen how both the “elements” and time are equated with 66. Space and time, in this manner, equate with #66.

Godly Circle of 66 Diameter 207 Circumference  on theTree of Life

  • The Hebraic parallel is The Tree of Life. It has 10 emanations that are depicted as circles. As mentioned, at one time letters and numbers shared the same symbol, The Hebrew word for circle( ( galgal)  equals 66.  Hebrew  is written right to left. Gimmel (1st letter) = 3;  lamed (second letter)= 30.  Since these letters are repeated (as pictured) in the Hebrew word, galgal, 2 x 33 =66.

So where is the 207 Godly circle circumference 207 of diameter 66? By tradition, what is not pictured on the Tree of life is En Sof. It is conceived as being over the highest emanation- the Crown.  Ein Sof, or Eyn Sof (/n sɒf/Hebrewאין סוף‬), in Kabbalah, is understood as God prior to any self-manifestation in the production of any spiritual realm.  Ein Sof may be translated as “unending” or infinity.[1]

As spelled in Hebrew אין סוף‬,  has a numerical equivalent of 207. “Sof” means ending. In nature everything transforms. When something ends. something new begins. If we make the 66 value for the word circle, into a diameter, the circumference becomes 207.

Number 66 also identifies a key road in the U.S.A. Is this merely a co-incidence with the zodiac?

Regal Leo and Audio Musical Preferences

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.

    Types of triadsAbout this sound I About this sound i About this sound io About this sound I+ 

    In music, a triad is a set of three notes (or “pitches“) that can be stacked vertically in thirds.[1] The term “harmonic triad” was coined by Johannes Lippius in his Synopsis musicae novae (1612).

  • 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.

Space and Time Coalesce on Route 66

Space and Time Coalesce on Route 66. This wonderful road is full of adventure for the traveler and mystic. Distinctly American pilgramages took place on this road. Now it is mostly historic. Route 66

Who among us does not remember the song “Get your kicks on Route 66”. Or the television show, Route 66. It stretches 2,448 miles from Chicago to LA. Both 66 and 2448 are higher charged ancient numbers. Are you ready for this adventure? Please bear with me. First, enjoy the king.


How, Music is in the Biblical Name, David

How, Music is in the Biblical Name, David: OK, so my name is also David. I’m a composer/pianist. Pure co-incidence. The Hebrew language can lift the fog that lies between the similarities between music and David. In Hebrew letters, David is spelled “dalet, vav, dalet”:  דוד. As a letter and  a number actually share the same symbol in Hebrew, we have:

  • Dalet- the 1st letter equals 4
  • Vav- the 2nd letter equals 6
  • Dalet-the third letter equals 4.

Now, I hope not too many of you will be upset with this quote from Aristotle:”The elements of numbers are the elements of things and therefore, things are numbers.” The most obvious connection of numbers with things are musical intervals. They use set ratios between two number.


The basis of both ancient and modern tuning is the musical fifth. Here is the ratio of the two tones:

  • For every time the higher of the two tones vibrates three times,
  • The lower note vibrates two times
  • To hear these notes just think of the opening 4 tones of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”. The second two are a fifth higher than the first two.

Now let’s look at the numbers behind the name of David:

  • 4 to 6 reduces to 2 to 3. By interval ratios this defines the lower fifth from a starting tone,
  • then 6 to 4 reduces to 3 to 2. This defines the higher fifth from a lower starting  musical tone

David’s power came through his music. He harmonized with the natural plan. This is why the Bible speaks of him as a musician first and and ruler second.


At this point, I must mention another upcoming project (too many projects!). I call the book Music Under the Zodiac. It is based on a unique way to align the 12 key signatures with the 12 signs of the zodiac. It will be used to advance musical therapy. For example, if you have a headache, listen to the music in F# minor.    So much is recorded on Youtube that is free. Most important, pick a pianist with a good touch. Arthur Rubinstein is my favorite in this regard. I also plan to make piano recordings of music that uses my inspired system of therapy. I have several examples of touch in the music of Debussy on my front page of DSOworks,com.  Francois Couperin le Grand wrote a treatise on this subject in 1717. It is called L’Art de Toucher le Clavecin. Then, if you care to, e-mail me about the effect of the music you’ve listened to.

  • Chopin- Polonaise Opus 44 in F# minor
  • Chopin- Nocturne Opus 48 #2
  • Brahms- Sonata in F# minor
  • J.S. Bach- Prelude and Fugue No. 14 Book II of The Well-Tempered Clavier
  • Rachmaninoff- Concerto in F# minor opus 1.

Beethoven was Born Under Sagittarius


Beethoven was Born Under Sagittarius. The sign has the distinction of being the only one that is half animal and half human. It is a centaur with an upper human body and the lower part is a horse. The bow and arrow points to the heavens as aspiration is lofty. Certainly, Beethoven had high goals as his crowning work, the 9th symphony, was about the brotherhood of man. As Sagittarius is not affected by hardship. as most people are, he wrote his 9th under the strain of deafness. As Sagittarius people love the outdoors, Beethoven came up with many of his themes while walking through the woods in Vienna. Sagittarius loves their freedom and independence. A famous Beethoven story goes something like this: Beethoven was strolling in Vienna with his friend, Heinrich Heine as the King of Austria was passing by. Heinrich immediately bowed before the king but Beethoven didn’t. The incensed king said “Beethoven, why did you not bow before me?” To which he answered, “After you are dead and gone, there will be many kings like you, but there will only be one Beethoven.” The king thought for a m0ment and then said “You are right.” He then went on his way. Now, is that nervy or what?

Beethoven’s Sagittarius-like Accomplishments

As Sagittarius has a great mind for business, Beethoven  broke the pattern of dependency on royalty that other musicians had. He thereby elevated the stature of the composer-performer.  As pianists would challenge each other with judges on hand to duels on the piano, Beethoven won every “piano duel”. He elongated the symphony, added new instruments and every  featured a grand chorus in his 9th singing Ode to Joy, titled after Schiller’s poem.  Having the will power to write your greatest major work while deaf takes determination.  The older I become, the more I stand in awe of the great composers of our civilization. After years of giving piano lessons in Sarasota, I have found that almost every girl wants to play Beethoven’s Fur Elise; and every boy wants to learn his Moonlight Sonata. I accomplished this feat, and from memory, after one year of piano lessons.  Also, keep looking for my book, Music Under the Zodiac. 

Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy–  Beethoven.

The Zodiac: It’s Secret Code Revealed

Music of the Four Types of  Triads and the Four Organic Elements Use the Same Numbers.

Four elements were known in antiquity and recognized through the Middle Ages: Earth, air, fire and water.  In the 21st century, we laugh at this. After all, we know there are 92 re-generative and re-occurring elements. But in the process, we have overlooked a secret code: The 4 basic elements of organic chemistry are carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen.

  • The source of fire on stars is hydrogen, atomic number-1
  • Our air is mostly nitrogen, atomic number-7
  • The hardest earth substance is diamond made from carbon, atomic number-6
  • By atomic weight, our water is mostly oxygen, atomic number-8
  • Their 22 total ( 1 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 22) goes around the zodiac 3x for a total atomic weight number of 66

Let’s take a quick look at parallel this has to musical triads

  • The basic building block of triads is the single 1/2 tone, 1 half step.
  • From the first note to the last with major and minor triads we count 7 half steps.
  • From the first to the last tone of the diminished triad we count 6 half steps
  • From the first to the last tone of the augmented triad we count 8 half steps.


Next point to tie in with the elements:  God’s four letter name, called the Tetragrammaton, is a contraction of the three tenses in Hebrew.  The important thing here is that in many Middle Eastern languages, the symbol for a letter was also the symbol for a number. There were no separate symbols for numbers.  This is called by the name, gematria (a Greek word).   Jehovah in Hebrew is spelled:  yud (10) hei (5) , vav,(6) hei (5) for a total of 26.   The three tenses of time in Hebrew are:  was (hei-yud-hei) with a gematria of 20;  am (hei-vav-hei) with a gematria of 16; and  will be (yud-hei-yud-hei) with a gematria of 30. Thus, 20 +16+ 30 = 66.  As Jehovah is spelled with the same letters as the three time tenses, His existence is connected  to all time, the  past, present and future.

The same truths hold for Islam. According to Annemarie Schimmel,  in The Mystery of Numbers, 66 corresponds to the value of the sacred word, Allah. Turkish Sufis explain that Turkish art uses emblems of the tulip and the crecsent Moon respectively, lalah and hilal. These two words not only use the same letters as the Sacred Name, but also they total 66 in Arabic by their gematria.  Finally, the circle of the zodiac in Hebrew is referred to as Galgal; spelled in Hebrew gimmel- lamed; gimmel- lamed. The letter gimmel is the symbol for number 3; and the letter lammed is the symbol for 30. Thus the two gimmels and two lameds total 66. All mankind has so much tradition in common. Now let’s share peace and plenty.
