How planets act in Leo Ascendant
Sun being lord of ascendant is the most auspicious planet. In planet in lagna or Lagnesh is the most auspicious planet as Lagnesh or planet placed in lagna is referred as “worth praising” by sages. Sun being lagna lord direct intellect of people born in this ascendant in his own way of royalty, righteousness, they love things made of timber a lot, keep special care of their health and are the one who is everyone’s doctor often they can be heard advising about health. They never settle for anything less than perfect but if it appeals their mind then they don’t care for perfection either. They are outspoken and authoritative along with this they have a desire to rule and are focused on well being in life; always concerned about their future they love their progeny a lot.
Moon is 12th lords for this ascendant and thus shows they must travel over water once in their life, for holidays and honeymoon they prefer beachside areas/cities. They spent lot of money in things they want (Start liking subconsciously – if they want to have those sunglasses then they will have it no matter how much it costs) they are always concerned about their life path and that should be Dharmic always. Moon ruling 12th house is said to be neutral and afflictions to moon can disturb their personal life, Moon should not be in three houses on either side of sun for them to enjoy personal life and good sleep. Moon wherever he sits will give loss pertaining to that area (any one significations of that house will be lost) and that house comes with a condition of either like if moon be in 7th house for Leo ascendant then it’s bad for marriage and gives a condition of either business or good marital life. Sometimes they spend a lot of money and sometimes they become selfish in money matters and that change happens very quickly for them
Mars is again yogakaraka for this ascendant. There is a simple formula to remember yogakaraka planet. First divide planets in two groups of Sun’s friends and Saturn’s friend. Sun’s friends are Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn’s friends are Venus, Mercury (nodes are not included here and they have separate rules) Planets are Yogakaraka for each ascendant ruled by same group’s planet. Using this formula we can say for Leo ascendant Mars, Sun, Moon and Jupiter will shower good results. Between them one will be Yogakaraka by having lordship of one Kendra and one Kona house and as Jupiter rules houses 4-10 to each other, and Sun and Moon rules only one houses Mars becomes Yogakaraka for Sun and Moon’s ascendant. Whereas in other group Saturn becomes Yogakaraka for Venusian ascendant and Venus becomes Yogakaraka for Saturnine ascendant. This is however a simple memory aid and as we progress in analysis and learning new rules are introduced and these things can be ignored. However for learners this can be a good exercise to start with. Here Mars is lord of 4th and 9th house and by virtue of this he becomes responsible for giving comforts, luxuries, luck to native born in this ascendant along with that he is also very important for father’s longevity and harmony with wife in this ascendant. Having ruler ship of 4th house he denotes their sense of comfort is being in their own zone like a Scorpio they love being in their holes and when provoked they can cause much harm as 4th house is ruled by Scorpio whereas being 9th lord he gives a clear hint that these are the people with an approach that my hard work can change my fate. Their father is also of the same opinion and they become aggressive when it comes to their religion or where someone provokes their father/guru/elders.
Mercury is lord of 2nd and 11th house and out of two ascendants this is the one where a single planet controls both of the money houses another ascendant is Aquarius where Jupiter control both money houses 2nd and 11th house. And by this we can easily decipher that Mercury’s position and placement is very important for financial condition of this ascendant. If Mercury is behind Sun then they are over ambitious about money whereas when he is ahead Sun they are somewhat careless about money. With Sun they are balanced with money and keep it in focus not always but often. As 2nd is the house of sustenance Mercury in 2nd from Sun make people born in these ascendant always concerned about how their money will be sustained how they can increase their bank balance and they will try every possible way to make wealth and keep it in their control and their hands they are very unlikely to have a shared account with spouse. Whereas when Mercury is in 12th house from Sun they are concerned about how much money they spent and they should lessen their expenses in order to save money and they should also maintain a personal account book to know about their expenditures. With Sun he is somewhat balanced about money matters and they are intellectually and spiritually inclined with less focus on money as comfort and they approach money with a sense of satisfaction only.
Jupiter is lord of 5th house and 8th house and his placement in any house is enough to damage one aspect of that house being 8th lord. Whatever house he occupies relations related to that house will suffer in their life and one aspect can be tainted. Being lord of 5th house he is responsible for future prospects of the native and his bad placement can make life miserable after child-birth. Connection between Mercury and Jupiter will make great dhana yoga and person will earn a lot due to his education and intelligence however being 8th lord if they choose fields like lottery or share market as their source of income then they can have some losses as well as Jupiter’s connection with Ketu can make them mentally unstable and they can lose their mental control due to loss in stock market same will be the effect to a lesser extent with conjunction of Jupiter and Venus for Leo ascendant. If Jupiter be placed in Kendra’s he tends to make native plump (in all ascendants this is general result of Jupiter) however for Leo ascendant Jupiter’s placement in 9th house is not welcome as it can make native have ill-fortune whereas his placement in ascendant can make native suffer from chronic disease whereas his placement in 5th house can give delays in childbirth and can give some deformity to children (also check other yoga’s) but generally it can be something like child will be born underweight or will start speaking after a considerable gap. In 4th house he is good for longevity but will bode problems to mother and native will have delays in childbirth and if he also be 12th from AL then it can completely deny children’s whereas his placement in 7th house is bad for marital life as well as for their children. His placement in 10th house is again bas for children’s as it will make them prone to diseases and their job can be irregular/working at odd hours.
Venus is lord of 3rd and 10th house for this ascendant and this makes them well behaved and unless provoked they remain the same. Being lord of 10th house it indicates that they are born counselors, and can do well in management and ruling industries their love for beauty and fine arts reflect in their work and their karmas can be motivated by sense of self satisfaction and selfishness. However if Moon is strong then this tendency won’t be prominent in them and they will be humanitarian and will work with a sense of giving it to society.
Saturn is lord of 6th and 7th house for this ascendant and once again it is just a paradox to think that all those ascendants where 7th house is ruled or occupied by Saturn will have bad marital life. Now here we come to an important question. One of my Friends asked on his Facebook group that in all ascendants 7th house is either ruled by male or female planet that is always opposite to gender of Lagnesh as they are in axis it is important to have this in order to maintain creation process. Mars-Venus, Mercury-Jupiter, Moon-Saturn, then why not with Sun-Saturn. Here we come to know a very serious fact about Saturn that being a eunuch planet in female signs he acts like male and in male signs he act like female while other eunuch that changes his nature according to association (Mercury) takes gender of the sign he is placed in hence this way Saturn in Aquarius is more with feminine qualities and in Capricorn he is endowed with more of masculine qualities. Being exalted in Libra his main quality is balancing and he tends to balance the sign where he is placed (when alone) here Saturn is a complete malefic being owner of 6th house and wherever he sits will give struggles in that area of life. Being a malefic his placement in Upachaya houses (3-6-10-11) are praised, however in 10th house he is trouble when it comes to career and can give high ups and downs whereas his placement in 3-11th house are good as wife will be pious and Dharmic lady but is bad for younger and elder siblings respectively as either they will be absent or they will struggle in their lives (any one of them) whereas his placement in 6th house is good for native as it keeps him disease free but make his spouse diseased and will promote celibacy in relationship making marital life unhappy.
