Effects of the rising sign (Lagan) and specific effects of each Lagan Sign

Dr. Shanker Adawal (Jyotishaacharya, PHD, MBA)

Fortunately, both for Western and Indian (hindu Astrology) the Zodiac is divided in 12 signs (rasis). The effects, characteristics, personal qualities or each sign are different and they have to be different as the sings are governed by different planets. All the signs are owned by 7 planets – the Sun owns Leo, the Moon owns Cancer, Mars owns Aries and Scorpio, Mercury owns Gemini and Virgo, Jupiter owns Sagittarius and Pisces, Venus owns Taurus and Libra and Saturn owns Capricorn and Aquarius.

The in-built character of each sign would depend on the fact whether the sign is moveable, fixed or dual. Whether it is watery sign or earthy or fiery sign. In other words, the classification of each sign must be kept in mind before proceeding to consider the general characteristics of the particular sign (rasi).

Broadly, the sings have been divided into two types – active and passive or even and odd signs. The active types can be called masculine and passive fall under the category of feminine.

One must also consider whether the sing is of short ascension or long ascension.

All these signs provide hint for knowing particular part of the boy. For example, the singing sign Lagan indicated the face and 12th and 2nd house respectively indicate the left and right eye.

Here we are giving the broad results of each rising sign-degree wise/dreshkona wise. We are sure that the information about each degree shall be helpful in all matters of astrological consultations though the results may stand modified when we consider the totality of the horoscope.
