Leo Ascendant – Sign and Houses The lord of the Ascendant becomes the Sun. Such persons develop the traits and the qualities of Sun. When the Sun, is strong in the horoscope, such people become brave, influential, endowed with ruling powers, strong of heart and strong of bones. On the other hand, if their Sun is weak and afflicted by malefic influence, then the prefab house
persons are put to much dishonor in life, have trouble in their eyes, are likely to suffer from heart trouble and troubles of the belly and are always opposed to the government of the day.
Virgo in the Second Houses. If Virgo is in the second house, Mercury becomes the lord of two houses of finance. It also becomes a planet of "Value" and "Plenty". The influence of Mercury in such a case on a house and its lord will, therefore, enhance the value and prospects of that house and make it rich and of high quality. Strong Mercury unaffiliated gives much wealth. Such a person earns through "interest" on deposits etc. for the yoga indicates income (11th house), through "finance" (2nd house). Such a person has many elder sisters to his mother, as Mercury a female planet becomes lord of the second house. On the contrary if Mercury is weak and afflicted, by malefic through association or aspect, the native (a) gets hindrances in his education in boyhood (b) gets loss of wealth in early age (c) remains for some time away from his parents during the educational period (d) gets defect in his speech (e) gets an ugly face.
Libra in the Third House. When the sign Libra falls in the 3rd house, Venus becomes the lord of the 3rd and the 10th houses. Such a person uses his arms for the purpose of or for the benefit of the government of the day. If Saturn too is strong and is favourably situated from the 3rd house, the younger brother of the native (of course if he has one) rises to high position in life. A strong Venus for people with Leo as their ascendant is not conducive to wealth. For them it would be better, if they have a weak Venus, in order to have good finances.
Scorpio in the Fourth House. Mars becomes the container house
lord of the 4th and 9th houses, when Scorpio falls in the 4th house. The fourth is an angle, while the 9th is a trine house. Hence by simultaneously owning a Kendra and a trine, Mars becomes a Raja Yoga karaka i.e. a planet of affluence and power, and in the event of being strong, by house and sign position, gives in its sub period high class results in regard to comforts wealth, honour, ruling powers, governmental favour, position, promotion etc. Such a person is very likely to gain from property. He is also happy because of the benefit that he gets from his father. If Mars is weak and afflicted, the father of the native meets his end while the native is still young, the reason being that Mars in such a case becomes the lord of two houses each of which represents longevity of father. An afflicted Mars denotes trouble in the scrotum of the native's father, for Mars becomes the lord of both the 8th sign and the 8th house, counted from the house of the father.
