Leo rising horoscope
Leo becomes the first house and the succeeding signs thus constitute the houses counted from there, i.e. Virgo becomes the 2nd house, Libra the 3rd house, etc. The functional benefic planets in the Leo rising horoscope are those planets ruling the moolatrikona signs falling in the good houses, i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10 and 11. These are the magnanimous Sun as 1st lord of self, the analytical Mercrury as 2nd lord of wealth, status and family, the artistic Venus as 3rd lord of communication, the expansive Jupiter as 5th lord of creativity, intelligence and children, structuring Saturn as 7th lord of spouse and advisors and energetic Mars as 9th lord of luck and father. This leaves the three functional malefic houses, i.e. the 6th house of conflict, health and finances, 8th house of obstacles and endings and the 12th house of losses and bed pleasures. The nurturing Moon as 12th lord of losses and far away places is a functional malefic planet for Leo's, along with the karmic Moon's nodes of Rahu, ruling materiality, and Ketu, ruling separation.
