It resides in forests; rises with its head; has a bulky body and is pale in hue. The direction of Simha rashi (Leo zodiac) is east; it is strong during the day time; and, its nature is cruel, stable and of fiery temperament. The general relationship between the Sun (lord of Simha rashi) and Jupiter is quite friendly; and, therefore, this transit of Jupiter through Leo sign (Simha rashi) is likely to have potent influence in accordance with its (Jupiter’s) nature for the specific ascendants (which is given below for all twelve Ascendants).
