The SUN KING: No one did Moon in Leo resplendence better than Louis XIV
Louis had Sun in meticulous Virgo and a Moon/Venus conjunction in Grande Statement LEO. In Vedic (Hindu) astrology the Moon sign is given the relevance we in the west give to the Sun sign. Louis is a testament to the strength our Moon sign and placement can have..to all appearances, his life was one of the consummate Leo.
Literally, he was born a King, named himself after the Sun, and created an incredible role for himself as the star of the show while powerbroking everyone else into supporting cast and crew, and building the most magnificent set/theatre of all time-Versailles, to stage the event that was his reign/life.
To find the Virgo expression don your sunglasses to see past the magnificent golden theatrics to the more humble side which appears to be his attention to detail, punctual performance of duties, both personal and state, and a routine that residents and staff could set their clocks by.
The original MATERIAL BOY…Interestingly Madonna, the self-named ‘Material Girl’, had the opposite Sun/Moon combo of Sun Leo, Moon Virgo.
There’s a great doco on him on SBS at the moment, set in Versailles.
