The sign Leo is ruled by the planet, the Sun, signifying intelligence, heart, male progeny, royalty and magnificence. This sign is fiery, positive, barren and signifies benevolence. Leo born people with weak and/or afflicted Sun in the chart face weak health, weak digestion, malfunctioning of heart, disease of spine and blood, lack of stamina and strong will power and weak eyesight.
Leos are rulers, extroverts, best organisers, patient listeners, jealous, decisive, art lovers, generous, authoritative and anxious to retain and expand their domain. As the weakness prone planet, Mercury, rules their second house ruling kingdom, their status is mostly short lived and they are always on the move to solve the problems one after the other. They are receptive to the ideas of others but provide leadership as per their own conviction. They are anxious to oblige others by favors so that they are recognised by others as royal. They intend to punish the guilty and rarely apologize those who do not surrender completely. A king needs help of all specialists and cannot afford to be ease-loving. As such, the Moon, the planet representing ease is the functional malefic for Leo born people. The Leo born people are most alert and very fast in assimilating diversified activities and problems. Mercury, the planet of analytical faculties, rules the second house representing concentration.
The initiatives of a king are for financial prosperity and
enjoyment ruled by Venus, whose mooltrikona sign falls in the third house.
The fifth house ruling intelligence, benevolence,
generosity and justice is governed by the planet of divine grace, Jupiter. The
advisors and courtiers, ruled by the seventh house, are generally greedy and try to secure
their future. They are ruled by Saturn in a Leo nativity. Yogakaraka Mars
represents the executive power of the king as the mooltrikona sign of Mars falls in the
ninth house ruling father and fortune.
Functional benefics, Mars, the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn, well placed and-strong, devoid of close conjunction/aspect of the functional malefics, the Moon, Rahu and Ketu, certainly help the native in acquiring leadership, or a top position in the Govt., in today's context, even if the native is born in an ordinary family.
Merely Leo rising is helpful to Leo-born people in assuming positions of power in the favorable periods with even average strength of planets. However, the weak and afflicted Sun and other planets mentally torture Leos as they cannot adjust with compromising situations and are always trying to assume control of the circumstances beyond control.
Exalted Sun in Leo nativities indicates highly placed father and success in a political career. Exalted Saturn indicates successful joint ventures and spouse possessing entrepreneurial capabilities. Exalted Mars with the support of other strong planets gives an affluent father engaged in the professions ruled by Mars. Exalted Moon situated away from the mid-point of the tenth house indicates a significant role played by overseas in one's professional career. Exalted Jupiter with a strong Moon in its period indicates prosperity in a foreign land. Exalted Mercury indicates leadership or chief position in a Govt. Dept. Exalted Mercury with a strong Sun blesses the native with top level public/political office. Exalted Venus turns the native into a pleasure seeker leaving aside the attention to administrative or organisational responsibilities of the native. Similarly, are to be read the results of the planets when they are in their signs of debilitation. However, the significations likely to be promoted when the planets are exalted get a setback when the concerned planets are debilitated and/or placed in the sixth, eighth or twelfth house.

Yogakaraka Mars is placed close to the mid-point of the ascendant. Its impact is not full, as Mars is in its sign of debilitation in navamsa. The lord of the ascendant, the Sun, occupies the house of status in association with exalted, Mercury, ruling the house of status. Mercury's close association with the Sun is auspicious but, Mercury's being combust, reduces the impact of this auspicious association to some extent. Rahu-Ketu and the functional malefic, the Moon, do not form close conjunctions or aspects in the chart. The fifth lord, Jupiter, aspects the house of profession from the fourth house. The third and seventh lords occupy third and seventh houses in their own mooltrikona signs, respectively. The auspicious combinations in the chart are more in evidence in comparison to complete absence of afflictions and fewer weaknesses.
As at the time of college education of the native, the native was running the sub-period of Rahu in its own main period, the native was perceived to be an average student. The native could not line up a job even after passing engineering. In the subsequent sub-periods of Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury, all being auspicious for the native, the circumstances took a turn. The native was selected for a fellowship for research studies, which gave him the distinction of being the only specialist in a particular subject in a country like India, and was blessed with a rewarding career in life and holding many high ranking appointments with the Govt. organisations.
The third lord's strength is giving inclination to the native for a writing career after his retirement. The seventh lord's strong position blessed the native with residence in a foreign country in its sub-period in the main period of Rahu and thereafter of short stays abroad. The exalted Moon's position away from the mid-point of the tenth house did not afflict the matters governed by the tenth house, but was instrumental in his rise.

The functional malefic, Moon, does not form any close conjunction in the chart. Exalted Rahu-Ketu axis forms close conjunction with the mid-point of the houses of its location.
The fifth lord, Jupiter, aspects the ascendant, third and fifth houses closely from the ninth house. The lord of the house of fortune forms close conjunction with the eleventh house. The Sun aspects the tenth house closely. Mercury and Saturn have distant association with the mid-point of the fourth house. Mercury is weak on account of its being in the state of infancy and combustion, both. Saturn is combust and is in the state of old age.
In spite of the weakness of Mercury and Saturn, the close conjunctions/aspects of Jupiter, the Sun and Mars to the middle points of the ninth, tenth and eleventh houses, respectively, blessed the native with a top position with the Govt. Even after his retirement, he continues to lead premier organisations. Affliction of Rahu-Ketu axis, however, gave occasional tensions and the cardiac disease to the native. The strong position of the dispositors of Rahu and Ketu, however, absorbed the shocks provided by the affliction caused by Rahu-Ketu axis to a great extent.
The strong Jupiter blessed the native with progeny, both male and female and conferred intelligence of the high order. The strength of Mars placed the native in higher income group and conferred properties on the native. The close aspect of the Sun to the tenth house gave a high status with frequent beneficial interaction with Ministers, etc. With creative and imaginative ideas, the native could raise the status of the organisations led by him. Good location of otherwise weak Saturn helped by a strong Venus blessed the native with a long lease of happy married life.

The Sun is in the twelfth house in the rasi chart, and in its sign of debilitation in the navamsa. Functional malefics, the Moon, Rahu and Ketu, afflict the mid-point of houses of their location, houses aspected by them and the planets, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter. The unafflicted planets are Saturn and Mars. Mars is, however, weak as it is in the state of infancy.
In view of the severe afflictions in the chart, and the weakness of the Sun and Mars, the native could not see high position in life, in spite of his being an engineer.
At the time of his college education he was in the sub-period of functional benefic exalted Saturn in its own main period. Saturn is placed in the third house which blessed the native with an engineering degree. Inspite of his qualifications, the native could not attain a lucrative or good job and prosperity and rise therein, because of the following sub-periods of the highly afflicted planets.
His career has been full of setbacks and utterly unsuccessful. This gave mental problems to the native. Dissatisfaction prevailed in all sectors of life, including physical and mental health. In comparison to his fellow students and colleagues, he lagged behind in life.

The Sun is fully afflicted by Rahu-Ketu axis in addition to the former being in the ending part of the sign. Mars, though in its own sign in the ninth house, suffers from weakness because of its being in the state of infancy. Venus occupies its own mooltrikona sign in the third house but is quite away from the mid-point of the third house. The functional malefic, Moon, is closely conjunct with the mid-point of the eleventh house and is closely afflicted by the aspect of Ketu from the seventh house. The house of income has relationship with the affluent lord of the twelfth house.
The fifth lord, Jupiter, is placed quite close to the mid-point of the tenth house. Saturn placed in the tenth house does not form close conjunction with either mid-point of the tenth house or Jupiter placed therein. Both Saturn and Jupiter enjoy placement benefit.
Due to weakness and severe affliction of the Sun, the native could not attain any position in politics or in government organisations. The strength of Venus and Mercury took him to business. In exalted Mercury's main period, the business of the native flourished, and he settled abroad. The business was doing well, but suddenly a decline was noticed from the start of the dasa of Ketu. In Rahu's sub-period, in Ketu's main period, there were sudden problems resulting in heavy losses, hypertension followed by heart disease. Financial and social status of the native got a setback.

Rahu-Ketu axis fully afflicts the houses occupied and aspected, Jupiter and the lord of the ascendant, the Sun. Functional benefics Saturn, Mercury and Venus are placed in the dusthanas. The Moon and Mercury occupy their signs of debilitation. Mars, unafflicted, ruling father, is placed well. Apart from Mars, all other planets and houses face weakness and/or severe afflictions. The child was born in the sub-period of the Sun in the main period of Mercury. He died in the same period.
The traditional approach could not have indicated short life for this native as the Moon with the so called debilitation cancelled, was placed in an angular house, Jupiter was placed in a kendra, yogakaraka Mars was aspecting the ascendant, and the lord of the ascendant, the Sun, occupied its sign of exaltation in the ninth house.
The System's Approach, however, gives clear indication. Whenever Rahu & Ketu axis is on the mid-point of the houses of their location, they severely afflict six houses, two by occupation and four by aspects. In case the lord of the ascendant and the mid-point of the ascendant/other houses are also involved by way of conjunction or aspect, it becomes a case of retarded growth and short life. The inauspicious operating period, however, brings death. In this case as earlier stated it was the sub-period of weak and afflicted Sun in the main period of Mercury, placed in the eighth house in its sign of debilitation.

Yogakaraka Mars is placed in the ascendant. The lord of the ascendant, the Sun is placed in the house of status. The lord of the house of initiatives and significator of wife, Venus, also is placed in the house of status, though in its sign of debilitation. Debilitated Venus is also being closely afflicted by the aspect of Rahu. The functional malefic, the Moon, is just on the mid-point of the third house reducing happiness from younger brothers and sisters, as in addition to the affliction to the third house, the lord of the third house and the significator for the third house, Mars, are also weak. Mars is in the state of infancy. Jupiter placed in the third house is also severely afflicted by the functional malefic, the Moon, resulting in denial of male progeny, and suffering on account of female children. Saturn, though in its own sign, becomes weak due to placement in the sixth house. The lord of the second house, ruling status, is placed in the third house quite away from the Moon and aspects the house of fortune. There are many combinations for acquiring high status in this chart. Firstly, Leo rising in the ascendant. Secondly, the lord of the ascendant being in the house of status. Thirdly, the lord of the house of initiatives placed in the house of status. Fourthly, yogakaraka Mars being placed in the ascendant.

Rahu-Ketu axis is quite away from the mid-point of the houses of its location. Rahu closely aspects the functional malefic, the Moon, placed in the tenth house. The Moon is quite away from the mid-point of the tenth house. Saturn, the lord of the seventh house is in the state of combustion and is placed in the fifth house in association with the Sun and Venus. The lord of the fifth house has exchanged position with the lord of the third house. As per the Systems' Approach, both of these planets draw functional beneficence and placement strength. The significator for elder brother and male children,
Jupiter, is otherwise weak as it is in the ending part of the sign. The weakness of Jupiter weakens the position of the Sun, Saturn and Venus, as they are placed in the mooltrikona sign of Jupiter. During the sub-period of Jupiter in its own main period, the native suffered acutely on account of serious health problem to his elder brother. During the sub-period of combust Saturn, the sufferings to elder brother continued, as he happened to be the partner of the native in the business enterprise. After his marriage, in the sub-period of Mercury in the main period of Jupiter, the native longed for a male child. His first child was a female. But the native did have chances of a male child as well, due to placement of the Sun and Jupiter in favorable houses from the ascendant, for which he was suggested a Kavach (Yantra) for providing strength to Jupiter. The strength to Jupiter will also take care of the miseries of his elder brother in addition to making his enterprises more paying and successful. The ninth lord is placed in the ninth house. Mercury, the lord of the house of status, aspects the tenth house. As Mercury is a trader, its influence on the tenth house has turned the native to be a contractor. Saturn's influence on the lord of the ascendant has taken him to the business of oil exploration. During the Rahu's main period, the native's parents saw many upheavals in life as Rahu closely afflicts the Moon, who is the lord of the parental happiness in the natural zodiac. The exaltation of the Moon has been a tender saving factor.
The native is a free lancer in his enterprises and earns good amount of money from his ventures.

Besides the lord of the ascendant, the Sun, there are three combust functional benefics in the second house indicating short lived auspicious contributions of their significations. Rahu-Ketu axis is very near to the mid-point of the houses of its location. In this case, none of the planets suffers from the close affliction of Rahu-Ketu or functional malefic, the Moon.
Saturn, the lord of the seventh house, is closely conjunct with the mid-point of the fourth house and closely aspects the sixth, tenth and first houses. The lord of the third house is placed in the fourth house, but quite away from the mid-point.
The unafflicted position of the Sun, in the house of status blessed the native with graduation in medicine and a flourishing business by way of a clinic. But on the other hand, in spite of his being a physician himself, he could not care for his own inherent health problems caused due to weakness of Jupiter, Mercury and Mars and placement of Rahu-Ketu on the mid-point of their houses of placement. The native saw the main periods of unafflicted functional benefics, Venus, and the Sun up to thirtieth year of his life. Physical problems started surfacing in the main period of the functional malefic, the Moon. The major problem is that of the inflammation of the head of the pancreas, ruled by the planet Jupiter and signified by the fifth house. Jupiter is combust and the fifth house is closely aspected by Ketu.
