In the Astroshamanic Binary System, Sun in Sagittarius (9) and Moon in Leo (5) constitute Binary 9.5, or Binary number 101.

9.5 (Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Leo) burns mutable fire with fixed fire, merging Sagittarius’s adventurous and expansive spirit with Leo’s vitality, generosity and leadership. Those aligned with this binary are generous, warm, enthusiastic and honest beings. Often dedicated to a specific cause or ideal, they are direct, abundant with energy and fire in the accomplishment of their goals. What makes them outstanding heroes is the capacity of bringing light into the darkness, or darkness into the light, allowing arcane secrets and the obscure recesses of the web of life to finally and triumphantly come into full visibility.

Sagittarius and Leo are in a trine aspect (120°), which produces an easy, balanced and mutually supporting link between the signs involved. This can bring major benefits when there is clarity of intent and focus. If this is not the case the benefits will develop unconsciously and gained by whoever holds a clear intention.

Three days after exact Full Moon, when the waning Moon is from about 135° to 90° from the Sun, we are in the Disseminating Moon or Waning Gibbous Moon phase. There is both a giving and an asking of energy. What I have put in motion, needs to be concluded with integrity and commitment, in order to receive its gifts. When we do not complete creative cycles we tend to separate ourself from the flow of life and feel confused or depressed. When the Sun and Moon move into a trine aspect (120°), if we have thoroughly played our part, the cycle is ripe to provide blessings and rewards. This phase support sharing resources and gifts regarding what was generated with the Full Moon. It is a process enhanced by dynamic communication, enthusiastic connections and spontaneous easy flow of energy. Following this final burst of creative expression as the Sun and Moon move towards a square (90°), a deep transformation develops. This requires the alignment of the Intent with the Function, one’s purpose with that of the whole.

With Scorpio darkness tends to remain in the darkness, inside the cave, in the composting chamber. Sagittarius represents the time when darkness has to emerge, when composting reaches the climax. How do you know it? Well, it is very simple, in that moment it is not possible to move further into the darkness: grievances reach their peak. On one hand this is when we would prefer to hide even more in the darkness, on the other that is not possible. Darkness itself forces me to move out of the cave since I have reached the end of the tunnel. The womb is no longer available to shelter me and either I succumb with the womb or get out into a novel configuration. Once I move on what was once inside the cave becomes visible
With Sagittarius, darkness is finally visible, the compost is ripe and available for fertilising an intent of light.
Now it is the time to be visible, to go on stage, to face the limelight. This is 9.5, a triumph of visibility and fire. Here the Sagittarian hero keeps the memory of where it comes from. Although he may provisionally transit a more luminous zone, she does not betray his ancestors and maintain the promise of conveying their dark calling to the light. And these are the honourable Sagittarian shamans. Blessings on them!

Astroshamanic Seal: the vision of this seal involves a large Sun shining upon the land, filling it with joy, clarity and energy. The rays of the Sun travel at high speed bestowing their luminosity to whatever they meet. I rise along one of those rays and as I move higher, I can see from a wider perspective, identifying many options, all connected with each other. Thanks to this wider view I can see everything differently. As I witness the increased emergence of options I realise that I need to focus on a clear Intention so this huge variety of energy can be directed. This seal is the triumph of the luminous male energy.

 Celebrities with 9.5

Jean Genet: (9.5.9) This controversial French writer was nor on 19 December 1910 with Sun in Sagittarius, Moon in Leo and Ascendant in Leo, which makes it a fiery 9.5.9 triad. Genet was both a dramatist and a convicted thief. He was so addicted to stealing that he even thieved diamonds from his hostesses at literary receptions. His early novels were mainly autobiographical and celebrated thievery, homosexuality, prostitution  and the social underworld. In 1948 Genet was convicted of burglary for the 10th time, which according to French laws of those times it meant that he was condemned to automatic life imprisonment. Yet his works had gained so much academic attention that following a petition he was granted  release. Later Genet began to write for the theatre with plays set in prisons, brothels and other obscure scenarios. Sartre defined Genet as the archetype of the existentialist man, whose distinction between good and evil is the result of personal choices and decisions, rather than being the victim of polarity. His plays are overt interactions between binaries: illusion and reality, life and death, good and evil, right and wrong, strong and weak, conscious and unconscious, ordinary and non-ordinary. Shocking and apparently immoral, his plays are sacred cathartic ritual, which support the audience’s release of grievances. Just like in the second stage of the Basic Ritual of the Sacred Cone, they provide opportunities for shamanic composting and multi-dimensional healing.
One may argue how such dark themes fit with the luminosity of 9.5. Isn’t it Scorpio that deals with darkness? This may be true, yet first of all we are still in the gap between Scorpio and Sagittarius. Secondly, though most importantly, with Scorpio darkness tends to remain in the darkness, inside the cave, in the composting chamber. Then comes a moment in which darkness has to emerge, when composting reaches the climax. How do you know it? Well, it is very simple, in that moment it is not possible to move further into the darkness: grievances reach their peak. On one hand this is when I would prefer to hide even more in the darkness, on the other that is not possible anymore. Darkness itself forces me to move out of the cave since the bardo is coming to an end. The womb is no longer available to shelter me and either I succumb with the womb or get out into a novel configuration. Once I move on what was once inside the cave becomes visible
With Sagittarius, darkness is finally visible, the compost is ripe and available for fertilising an intent of light.
Now it is the time to be visible, to go on stage, to face the limelight. This is what Genet, a 9.5.9 triumph of visibility and fire, and other enlightened Sagittarius souls did and do. Here the Sagittarian hero keeps the memory of where it comes from. Although he may provisionally transit a more luminous zone, she does not betray his ancestors and maintain the promise of conveying their dark calling to the light. And these are the honourable Sagittarian shamans. Blessings on them!
Quotes from Genet:
So long as we were in a room in a brothel, we belonged to our fantasies, but once having exposed them, we’re now tied up with human beings, tied to you and forced to go on with this adventure according to the laws of visibility.

Man must dream a long time in order to act with grandeur, and dreaming is nursed in darkness. Crimes of which a people is ashamed constitute its real history. The same is true of man.

Perhaps all music, even the newest, is not so much something discovered as something that re-emerges from where it lay buried in the memory, inaudible as a melody cut in a disc of flesh. A composer lets me hear a song that has always been shut up silent within me.

Nero, (9.5.9) Pl Instr/Power., Roman emperor of the Julio-Claudian dynasty (15 December 37-d. 68) The first frozen dessert is credited to Emperor Nero of Rome. It was a mixture of snow (which he sent his slaves into the mountains to retrieve) and nectar, fruit pulp and honey. Archaeologists have uncovered what they believe to be the Roman emperor Nero’s fabled rotating dining room. The ‘coenatio rotunda’, which was discovered in the remains of the first century Golden Palace on Rome’s Palatine Hill, is thought to be the one described by the Roman historian Suetonius in Lives of the Caesars.
He wrote: ‘The chief banqueting room was circular, and revolved perpetually night and day in imitation of the motion of the celestial bodies.’

Born into poverty on a farm in Missouri, he was the author of How to Win Friends and Influence People (1936)
“It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.”
“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.”
“If you are not in the process of becoming the person you want to be, you are automatically engaged in becoming the person you don’t want to be. ”
“Remember, happiness doesn’t depend upon who you are or what you have, it depends solely upon what you think.”

“An infinity of passion can be contained in one minute, like a crowd in a small space.”
“Love, she thought, must come suddenly, with great outbursts and lightnings,–a hurricane of the skies, which falls upon life, revolutionises it, roots up the will like a leaf, and sweeps the whole heart into the abyss.”
