Ursa Major is the Great Bear Constellation, it’s beyond our Zodiac Ecliptic but it borders Leo. Ancient mythologists, sages and witches saw it as totally magic, some of the legend is here in this fabulous site.
Its key fixed star is Dubhe – gracing 13 to 15 degrees of Leo – so if you are born around August 8, you have this star conjunct the Sun. Fixed Star esoteric history and associations are insane but totally cool. Dubhe is linked to the Tarot card The Chariot and the Cat Goddess Bast but yes, in this Big Bear constellation. Anything you have in your chart at these degrees is near it. Some ancient astrologers say it was like Mars and fiendishly destructive, others credit it with “psychic ability, the power to overcome enemies; courage, strength, power; feminine power.”
