A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Jupiter in Leo , so the description given here may change for you if your Jupiter is although in the sign of Leo but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets.
So, lets see what Jupiter can do in Leo without any conjunction or aspect from any other planet. 1st lets see what these 2 things represent --
Jupiter is the most benefic planet and it represents all the auspicious things like Knowledge, Wisdom, Law, Guru, Spirituality, Religion, Philosophy, Literature, Elderly People. For a girl, Jupiter also represents Husband.
Leo is 5th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things associated with 5th house of horoscope like Love, Creativity, Arts, Being on Stage etc. Besides that, Leo is basically the Lion. This is the sign of feeling like King or Queen. Also, it is a sign of independence, Confidence, Ego, Self Esteem etc. Leo is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatra namely Magha, Purva-Phalguni and Uttara-Phalguni. Leo's lord is Sun.
Now, this is another very good placement for Jupiter as Leo is the sign of Authority. So, Jupiter here makes a person work towards gaining authority on the basis of his knowledge. Here, person feels that he has all the great knowledge and due to which he should be in authoritative position. They utilize their knowledge and education in gaining that authority. They can be very creative too as Leo is the sign of creativity. So, Jupiter expands the creative nature or pursuits of person. Overall, they can be seen as Teacher or Professors in Govt School or Colleges. They attain the royal authority through their knowledge.
Now, the impact of Jupiter will depend on Jupiter's position in a particular Nakshatra. If Jupiter is in Magha Nakshatra, then Ketu's position will decide the functioning of Jupiter in Leo as Magha's lord is Ketu. If Jupiter is in Purva-Phalguni Nakshatra, then its lord Venus will be deciding factor. If Jupiter is in Uttara-Phalguni Nakshatra, then Sun's position will be deciding Jupiter's impact.
Also, as Sun is Lord of Leo, Sun's condition will have the highest say on Jupiter's impact in Leo.
Tomorrow, Jupiter in Virgo.
