For the COSMOS Tarot & Oracle Deck, Andres illustrated a piece for the constellation Leo Minor. In the deck, it represents the Three card and is an Earth element.
Budding Talent - Person in Training
Known as the “Lesser Lion,” Leo Minor fits in well with its surrounding menagerie of Leo, Ursa Major, Lynx, and Cancer. Lions are powerful, confident, and ambitious animals. Leo Minor is a small constellation, resembling a young lion training for the day when he takes charge of his own pride. When this card appears in a reading, a person may be too inexperienced at the moment to show the world all they can offer. Others may not see the promise they hold for the future quite yet, but the potential for greatness is certainly there.
This card references a budding ace, a person-in-training, or a novice with big ambitions. It draws attention to the unique abilities that young potential will bring to the greater community in time.
Reversed, Leo Minor references the feelings of inadequacy or jealousy a person may feel when comparing themselves against a practiced individual, professional, or person that has gained notoriety for the same interests. Remember that each constellation in the sky earned its place in its own time.
