Rahu in Leo 12th house
Rahu is very happy in the 12th house of expenditure since one of Rahu’s specialties is expenditure. As a head without a body he can eat and eat and eat and never get full. Ketu is of the nature of fullness. Rahu is very likely to increase wasteful expenditure from the 12th house. In Leo, Rahu might like to spend on things as a show of authority, sporting good or events, politics or anything else he thinks might give him a stage. In the 12th house, he could keep you up at night in your search for the elusive satisfaction thru various pleasures of the night. Conjoined with Jupiter in the 12th, foreign travel is a good possibility.
Rahu casts his drishti on the 4th and 8th house, which could cause some difficulties on the home front (4th) as well as creating a situation for some sudden event (8th). Mars is also ruler of 8th house residing 8 houses away from 8th which is of course the house of effort, but it is also used as a kind of confirmation of 8th house indication. Mars conjunct Saturn can signify very hard (and possibly secret) effort against ones enemies.
Ketu in Aquarius 6th house
Ketu in 6th house provides and interesting contrast between competition (6th house) and satisfaction (Ketu). There can be a sense of not feeling the need to compete whilst being surrounded by competitors. Ketu is generally considered well placed in the 6th house since he can often dispatch your enemies before you even know you have them. However, difficulties can arise from Ketu’s lack of foresight. Since the 6th house represents accidents, illnesses, debts and criminals and other such obstacles that need to be dealt with, Ketu can neglect to act in a timely manner or ignore the details of 12th house in such a way that problems begin to fester: minor illness and debt, when ignored, can become a more serious problem. Likewise, association with criminals, though not a criminal oneself, can lead to being judged guilty by association.
The Sun’s conjunction with Ketu (in February-March) along with Mars’ aspect suggests there are some powerful competitors that need to be acknowledged. For Virgo countries, there is some suggestion that this competition (6th house) could be met through a very determined effort (Saturn/Mars conjunct 3rd house) over seas (Jupiter/Rahu 12th house). Ketu’s aspect on 10th and 2nd houses suggests some occupation that will be out of character and a certain. People and countries with Virgo rising or moon could be showing a rather difference face to the world at this time. Considering there will be no planets in the angles suggests that much of the focus of this period will be “outer” (away from home and perhaps not directly associated with your core (or home) personality, contentment, partnerships or occupation). Overseas struggles is indicated. The sun as owner of a bad house (12th) residing in a bad house (6th) creates a Vipreet Raja Yoga suggesting a successful period in February-March. Though all lagnas need to watch out for international events taking place in early March.
Saturn in Scorpio 3rd house
The 3rd house represents the arms. It’s where we reach out to the world thru our effort. Saturn’s position here suggests that our effort is likely to bring sorrow. Saturn also causes some restriction while Mars provides action this usually gets displayed as frustration, but since Mars will be in own house Scorpio, action is likely to prevail: hard, dirty, committed, valiant action. As owner of 5th house, he will likely bring political and sporting efforts; and as owner of the 6th he will direct his effort against his obstacles and enemies. It could be a good time to overcome illness thru effort as Saturn 3rd look on the 5th house will bring some strength to liberate yourself from 6th house difficulties. Saturn and Mars both looking at the 9th house will not be a good time for higher thinking, higher knowledge, religion or even following the path of ones father. When Venus moves into the 6th house sometime towards the end of February, such expansive thinking will be all but lost to the competition (this could open the doors for an “anything goes” sort of fight).
Jupiter in Leo 12th house (Guru Chandal yoga)
Jupiter is badly debilitated for Virgo Lagna. First, as ruler of two Kendra houses (4th & 7th) he looses his first face (his benefic face); second, he’s an enemy of Mercury, Lagna lord of Virgo; third, he’s situated in 12th house; fourth, he’s retrograde; fifth, of course, is Guru Chandal yoga. The 9th house, for which Jupiter is natural karaka, is also badly compromised by aspects from both Saturn and Mars. Loss of home pleasure is likely, as is loss of partnership (or trade). Some culprit activity could come out of strong Virgo places or people.
When we think of the world stage, consider places that exemplify strong Virgo qualities: regions, countries, constitutions, leaders. Virgo could signify a conflict zone and the people living there, it could also signify a doctor or a lawyer, analysts and problem solvers. When 4th owner goes into 12th house, home pleasure gets expended in the way a prideful priest (Jupiter) might spend (12th) himself in the kings overseas castle (Leo in 12th) with a strong influence by some shadowy figures (Rahu). Mars rules 8th house of secrets and will be situated in his own 8th sign of secrets (or mystery) which happens to be the house of effort. Saturn (as 5th owner) brings some beneficial influence for Virgo, but certainly not for those against whom he is making effort (3rd), or fight (6th). His efforts are likely to be merely political (5th) and bureaucratic (Saturn) anyways. Jupiter could, however, bring some luck to ones search for hidden things (8th), and his glance at the 4th house is likely to help stabilize home life thru the rule of law which he signifies as does his own sign Sagittarius which is located in the 4th house for Virgos.
