I’m new to astrology. I live in the South East area of Ohio. What part of the night time sky would I have to look toward to find the above coordinates ?
Or what major constellation are the coordinates above near?
Yeah, I meant Astronomy.

That appears to be Cancer. You couldn’t see it now, because the Sun is in that constellation at the moment.

astrology is mystical nonsense, so you can make up any answer you like.

First, it is astronomy, (astrology is about “Sun signs”, horoscopes, etc, not science.)
The coordinates given are in the constellation Leo. Not too far from Regulus, between Leo’s front legs. (assuming a northern declination as there is no N or S given or + / -)
Leo is well placed for observing in the northern hemisphere in spring and summer. It should be high in the south as soon as it is dark.
There are many places on the Internet for sky charts, “planetarium” type programs etc. the “sky” part of “google earth” is pretty cool. Search around there are many more.

Not much in this spot at the moment. It’s conceivable that a planet could venture here–at the moment, Mars and Saturn are closest–but nothing here right now. The spot is actually in Leo, not Cancer, and it’s in a straight line with Saturn and Regulus (the brightest star in Leo), about as far from Regulus as Saturn is, but on the other side.
This spot is on the side of Leo closest to Cancer and Hydra (a dim and not very well-known constellation).
