"Age of Leo" is an assumption, see precession rate debated elsewhere. The time you refer to had midsummer in Leo, it was Age Taurus, which was longer, and precession probably slower, and obliquity larger. There are very few and very faint correlations between the seasonal orientation and iconography. Not "influence", just some synchronicity. Only one of the five layers of archetype involves time, and in cultural record maintains a faint trace of the time-frame of the Age prior to the work. Eg during Age Pisces, most works were framed in Age Aries. Archetypal structure never restructures. Ages in philosophy is epoch, something that archetype acquires of necessity during manifestation in nature, as physis (manifesting) and dighe (organisation). Epoch is much overrated in 'symbolic' or conscious interpretations. Eg Age Aquarius started 2016 Dec as measured by the seasonal points relative to the two galactic gates; and was activated calendrically in 2020 by the Great Conjunction. Again no "influence" merely synchronicity between different plains of space time energy.
Lions rarely climb trees. Felid species is one of the expressions of one of the types, as in my paper Blueprint. Thank you for commenting on it. I hope people interested in archetype as the source of nature and culture, get the implication that the features layer consists of sets of optional features. No expression uses all the options. All expessions, or samples of about 100, reveal that each optional feature occurs at a predictable average rate. The largest averages found included some features of type 11 Womb (womb about 87%, interior, gestation, etc), and type 12/13 Heart (heart about 85%, felid, war, death, etc). I hope readers understand that the recurrent features, and their frequencies, and their sequence, and the axial grid between their focal points, and their orientation relevant to Ages, is innate, universal, pre-existent, never invented, never changed, a whole package that comes with our species in the space-time and atmospheric mix of the last few million years. And thus that culture does not evolve. And that we are hard wired to compulsively behave in ceretain ways, and equally hard wired to not want to consciously realise that we are just an extension of nature. I did not design it, I found it.
I agree with your statement "I think it's all innate." But not due to "Nature will always Nurture what exists", since nature also expresses archetype. Everything converges, like vultures to the less contested energy.
Regarding "tribes", the sad news is that all people use the same mechanisms of exploitation, including forming tribes. We are hard wired to see "us better than them, us deserve all resources." Even while we are equally capable of co-operation if that is easier. Cultural media, including myth, ritual, drugs, include prompts for war and peace. I like your motto "Know your place". Our place is contradictory, as I demonstrate in the three articles about Oracles of the Dead. Terror is a kind of purge, and rehearsal, and intimidation. Entertainment themes demonstrate that we need it, from tragedy to Hitchcock to transformers.
