Das / Behari comment on Simha lagna:

"Simha .... bestows a regal appearance, as if the life-force were vibrating from every part of your body.

You have a broad face with strong bones, beautiful and expressive eyes.

You may be a possessive parent, egotistical and selfish in temperament, and a braggart .

  • You are excessively libidinous but not necessarily promiscuous.

You are not satisfied with the material heights you attain and are always aspiring towards greater intellect, greater wealth, greater status, and greater respectability.

Often you think you have achieved more than you really have; nevertheless, you are never satisfied, for you think you deserve more than you have received. You always strive to reach the top of the mountain.

  • You are basically materialistic but like to assume that you are spiritually highly evolved.

Involvement in work is intense and whole-hearted.

You may be seen working adroitly on the subtle problems of life, whether related to physical sciences, psychology, or to concrete and technological problems in engineering, industry or economics.

  • It is not the subject matter that is significant: your complete involvement in whatever you undertake is of supreme importance to you. In that pursuit, your engagement of effort is total.

There is a suddenness in your actions which gives your an element of surprise and unpredictability.

However involved you may seem in a pursuit or relationship, you can suddenly end it.

You are loyal to your friends, but that friendship can end suddenly.

  • To some people you may seem ungrateful.

The world exists only for your convenience and the satisfaction of your desires.

In your social relationships, contradiction and self-aggrandizement seem to predominate.

You may find married life difficult.

  • Your spouse is very calculating and self-centered - which are some of Leo's traits as well.

  • Compatibility becomes difficult.

  • In such circumstances, you often act in a clandestine manner, concealing certain aspects of your life.

You do not trust others :equal partnership is not a common factorin your life. ... gives rise to wealth in mutual combination.

  • The Sun is lord of the Ascendant, Mercury lord of financial wealth and Mars is of course Yoga karaka.

  • Thus all the three planets have acquired some power or other to do good.

It will be seen that the Sun, Mercury and Mars play an important role in case of persons born in Leo Ascendant, while other planets will be able to do some good under certain special conditions.

.... fond of eating meat and enjoying worldly enjoyments, will earn wealth and honor through the government,

bereft of religion, dutiful in family affairs, hold a high rank of office,

be majestic, strong, bold,

speak sparingly, a miser, will trouble others,

  • will wander in hills and forests, be irascible, firm in friendship, careless, inaccessible (or inviolable), will destroy his enemies, have famous sons, honor the virtuous, rich through agriculture etc.,

  • interested in business and will spend heavily on prostitutes and dancers.

  • Spouse will suffer dental diseases. "

~~ T. Subba Row. (1881). "The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac" in Five Years Of Theosophy. George Robert Snow Mead (ed.).London. (1885, 1894).

"V. Simha.

This word contains a world of occult meaning within itself; and it may not be prudent on my part to disclose the whole of its meaning now. It will be sufficient for the present purpose to give a general indication of its significance.

  • Two of its synonymous terms are Panchasyam and Hari, and its number in the order of the Zodiacal divisions (being the fifth sign) points clearly to the former synonym.

This synonym--Panchasyam -- shows that the sign is intended to represent the five Brahmas -- viz., Isanam, Aghoram, Tatpurusham, Vamadevam, and Sadyojatam: -- the five Buddhas.

  • The second synonym shows it to be Narayana, the Jivatma or Pratyagatma.


The Sukarahasy Upanishad will show that the ancient Aryan philosophers looked upon Narayana as the Jivatma.*

The Vaishnavites may not admit it. But as an Advaiti, I look upon Jivatma as identical with Paramatma in its real essence when stripped of its illusory attributes created by Agnanam or Avidya--ignorance.

( * In its lowest or most material state, as the life-principle which animates the material bodies of the animal and vegetable worlds, and c. --Ed. Theos.)


The Jivatma is correctly placed in the fifth sign counting from Mesham, as the fifth sign is the putrasthanam or the son's house according to the rules of Hindu Astrology.

  • The sign in question represents Jivatma -- the son of Paramatmaas it were.

  • (I may also add that it represents the real Christ, the anointed pure spirit, though many Christians may frown at this interpretation.)*


I will only add here that unless the nature of this sign is fully comprehended it will be impossible to understand the real order of the next three signs and their full significance.

  • The elements or entities that have merely a potential existence in this sign become distinct separate entities in the next three signs.

  • Their union into a single entity leads to the destruction of the phenomenal universe, and the recognition of the pure Spirit and their separation has the contrary effect.

  • It leads to material earth-bound existence and brings into view the picture gallery of Avidya (Ignorance) or Maya (Illusion).


If the real orthography of the name by which the sign in question is indicated is properly understood, it will readily be seen that the next three signs are not what they ought to be.

( * Nevertheless it is a true one. The Jiv-atma in the Microcosm (man) is the same spiritual essence which animates the Macrocosm (universe), the differentiation, or specific difference between the two Jivatmas presenting itself but in the two states or conditions of the same and one Force.

Hence, "this son of Paramatma" is an eternal correlation of the Father-Cause. Purusha manifesting himself as Brahma of the "golden egg" and becoming Viradja--the universe.

We are "all born of Aditi from the water" (Hymns of the Maruts, X. 63, 2), and "Being was born from not-being" (Rig-Veda, Mandala I, Sukta 166).--Ed. Theos.)"

Listen to your own truth."

~~ Ram Dass

Wealth

General Suitability of Gems for Simha Lagna

  1. Surya ratna = yes, almost always, because Surya = the auspicious lagnesha and Ravi does not rules any other house

  2. Chandra ratna = no, because Chandra = L-12 identity-dissolver and Chandra does not rules any trinal bhava

  3. Mangala ratna = yes, almost always, because Mangala is a Yogakaraka from the Simha lagna = L-4 and L-9

  4. Budha ratna = no, although Budha is a money-maker, because Budha = L-2 and L-11. During Budha periods, gems are not recommended - do Seva to increase your gains.

  5. Guru ratna = probably yes, because Guru = bhagya L-5 - but also the "sudden changes" agent L-8. Check bhava-8 before wearing a pukhraj.

  6. Shukra ratna = probably no, because Shukra = L-3 and L-10 * and one-to-one Shukra is an enemy of one-to-many Surya During Shukra periods, gems are not recommended - do Seva to increase your public respect (10) and commerce (3).

  7. Shani ratna = no-no-no - because rigid, austere Shani L-6 and L-7 * and Shani is a bitter enemy of Surya

  8. Rahu-ratna = unknown, depends on Rahu's lord

  9. Ketu-ratna = unknown, depends on Ketu's lord

There are exceptions to all of these general rules. Exceptions are caused by the position of Chandra, the active Vimshottari time lords, and the native 's personal goals inter alia .

Surya + Shukra in Simha lagna

Raja Yoga for Simha lagna

An exchange of Rashi between Karma's Lord and Lagna's Lord

will make the native associated with the king in a great manner.

~~ BPHS, Ch. 40, Sl. 13


If the lord of the Lagna and the 10th exchange houses with each other

then they form a Raja Yoga .

They will confer high position, reputation and power.

~~ BPHS, Ch. 5, Sl. 41

11th-from = Natural Friendship Community-Economy-Sahangha

befriends "Mithuna-03" types:

the talkative; chatterers; reporters of the superficial and temporary mental state

writers, journalists and story-tellers; neighbors and siblings; team, ensemble, work-group;

those in media-production; films, radio, advertising, scheduling;

commercialists, business administrators "the office"

hand-crafters, masters of gesture, signalers, messengers, evangelists

gifted with communicative touch

the sexualized and conversationally fluent; one's own siblings and cousins;

the narrative-oriented, tale-tellers, raconteurs

those disconnected (12th-from) with security, rhythm, the customary routine (Karkata)


the best friends of the Simha native are typically one's own sibling-cousins. Numerous temporary friendships with commercial and administrative team-mates; yet these are not deep.

Often Simha enjoys a friendly and gainful relationship with the spouse of one's own eldest child (11) as well.

Special Simha issues in Marriage:

  • both kalatrakaraka Shukra

  • and L-7 Shani

= enemies of lagnesha Surya

Simha = the saturated sthira "unmovable" state of Simha that is regally confident, self-centered, intelligent, and self-sufficient - but also potentially arrogant and prone to hubris.

Marital challenges for Simha lagna include:

lagnesha Surya = Radiant Self

  • Simha = a proud, politicized, ego-centric personality. One may become a great exponent of divine intelligence e.g. Swami Paramahamsa Yogananda, but the vehicle of delivery for this intelligence will be nevertheless a royally charismatic personal style.

  • Surya = enemy of Shani. the native is born with entitlement to receive an inordinate (non-ordered-Shani) amount of center-stage attention.

Sober, system-distributor Kumbha-Shani= L-7 = enemy of central lord Surya

  • (see bhava-7 for Simha, below)

Balancing Shukra = kalatrakaraka = enemy of central lord Surya

  • Shukra as karaka for the social harmony of marriage (for women) and as karaka specifically for the wife (for men) tends to siphon attention away from the Simha center..

Simha Chandra = emotional needto be the center of attention.

  • For a female, relationships that do not focus intently upon the Simha-Chandra native may cause jealousy.

    • (E.g., the husband's work relationships.)

    For the male, his wife's gracious diplomacy and skill in maintaining a network of social relationships may threaten his personal need to be the constant center of her love.
