WHAT DO THE GROUP NAMES MEAN?
Zosma, also known as Dhur (the Lion’s back), Wadha (the wise) or its astronomical name, Delta Leonis, is a star of the constellation Leo.
As the fixed stars move at the speed of 1° every 72 years, Zosma currently is at 11°20’ Virgo. It is the fourth (and arguably third) brightest star in the constellation, shining with a luminosity 23 times that of the Sun.
Zosma is associated with those who willingly enter a dangerous situation; they are willing to make sacrifices or to be a victim.
