They lack a natural policy and hence get into many difficulties. They are likely to suffer from nervous troubles/heart problems generally. They are misunderstood by their superiors and bosses.

8. Persons born under Leo will be bold but respectful in temperament. They possess the knack to adapt themselves to any condition of life. They are rather ambitious. If the ascendant(Lagna) or the tenth house is afflicted, they may not succeed in life as much as the expect. They put forth much struggle. They are seldom capable of non-attachment and contentment. As Saturn happens to be lord of 7th, they must resist the temptation of yielding much of their wives of husbands if domestic happiness to prevail.

9. The lord of the lagna becomes the Sun. Such person develop the traits and the qualities of Sun. If the Sun is strong in the horoscope, such people become brave, influential, endowed with ruling powers, strong of heart and strong of bones.

10. Moon is the lord of the 12th house. Therefore, the natives of this Ascendant should avoid wearing a Pearl. The Pearl may, however, be worn in the major period of Moon if Moon is in the 12th in his own sign.

11. Sun being lord of the Ascendant, Ruby is a `must’ for such natives. They should always wear a Ruby, more so when the Sun is not well placed, weak or in any way afflicted in the chart. Ruby may protect them from ill health and enemies, give vitality to the body, long life, success in administrative and other posts. It will also enhance the spiritual power of the native.

12. Mars being lord of the 4th quadrant and 9th house – a trine is very favourable and auspicious planet (yoga karka) and wearing of Red Coral will be followed by the beneficial results. The native will acquire, lands and property, will have good fortune, will become virtuous and longevity of father is also improved. If the Mars is posited in his own sign in the 4th of 9th the beneficial results will become more pronounced.

14. Jupiter will be lord of the 5th and 8th houses. Being lord of 5th house, a trine, Jupiter is considered as an auspicious planet for this Ascendant. The native may wear a Yellow Sapphire, particularly in the major and sub-periods of Jupiter. It will prove more useful if it is worn with a Ruby, the gem stone of the Sun.

15. Venus is lord of the 3rd and the 10th houses. Venus is considered an auspicious planet. But if as lord of the 10th Venus is posited in the 6th, 8th or 12th (where he will be exalted). Diamond will help to offset the set-backs in profession etc. If Venus is in the own sign in the 10th House, it will give rise to two yogas, namely Amala and Malavya (one of the Panchamahapurusha yogas). The effects of thee yogas are described as under:

- Amala yoga: This yoga is caused when the 10th from the Moon or Lagna is occupied by a benefic (natural) planet. As a result of Amala yoga the person will achieve lasting fame and reputation. Is character will be spotless and he will lead a prosperous life.

- Malavya yoga is caused if Venus should occupy quadrant which should be his own or exaltation sign. As a result, the person will have a well developed physique, will be strong minded, wealthy, happy with children and wife, endowed with clean sense organs and renowned and learned. The good effects of these yogas will get an impetus if a diamond is worn during the major periods and sub-periods of Venus.
