Hence, the given combination provides a very authoritative mindset to a person. The fire element of Leo makes them very straightforward and demanding.

With that being said they have very high values and standards which are extremely hard to satisfy. Their increased values are reflected by the 2nd disposition, which signifies self-worth and general values.

As the given disposition is formed in royal and dominant Leo, it explains why their standards are highly above average.

Stubborn & Resolute

The fixed modality makes them very strictly loyal to their values. They let no one lower them. With that being said, they carry very high self-worth or self-esteem as well which allows them to remain loyal to their decisions and standards.

Whenever they decide on something, no one can change their mind and they become fierce when someone tries to do so.

On the other hand, their highly demanding and authoritative nature can cause friction in relationships with others. That is because of the fact that they are highly inflexible and fixed. This means that they do not easily adapt or conform to the rules what others impose upon them.

Warm Greetings my friends! Our desire is to share the miraculous ancient knowledge with the world with the intention to help guide people in their lifepaths. Our interpretations are all based on classical authorities of Vedic astrology and their books, as well as general observations.


  • I am very impressed from the information. The person is just like that in so many ways and 99 %
    You have done a great job. I have been studying Astrology for 3 years, but I like to see the Vedic chart also just for comparation. I even think that in the case of this person Vedic astrology is more accurate than Western astrology. I can only imagine the hours and years of studying and devotion you have invested ,for putting together so much valuable information. And for free. Good Karma yoga, and Raji yoga. I really respect that. Maybe because I have my moon in 5 degree Taurus 9 house, Jupiter in cancer 11 h, Sun and Venus in Sagittarius 4 house and leo in 12 house.. In Vedic Astrology. Congratulations. I wish you all the best.

    • Hello Dina! I am tremendously delighted to receive such feedback from you. My journey to astrology was very long starting from childhood when I started showing interest in basic astronomy. Over time, I became fascinated by the fact that these same bodies influence humans and this is how it all started. I began learning Western Astrology 10 years ago and for the past 5 years, I have been studying and practicing Vedic Sidereal Astrology deeply.

      The best reward for me is to see that my hard work truly helps people as it is my main priority to help guide people on their life paths. This is the reason why the fundamental Vedic Astrology should be available to anyone. Our ancient sages left it for us selflessly and we should continue following these steps.

  • Which is considered more accurate; Vedic or Tropical Birth chart? My sign sun is Aries, and moon is in Leo in Vedic, whereas my sun is in Taurus and moon is in Leo in Tropical. Obviously these represent two very different personalities. I do know that I have about equal parts earth and fire in my chart, and have read that an April 23rd birthday is an Aries/Taurus cusp. I do often feel feel that my calm and active nature are competing. I would appreciate any insight you might have!

    • Hello Katherine.

      Thank you for asking this question. Vedic Sidereal system considers actual star positions in the sky which means that it is precise. You can also check it by observing the actual sky by using special software called Stellarium.

  • Hello Martin,
    What will happen if Saturn aspects moon, 3rd aspect from the gemini sign? I’m a gemini rising with Saturn in 1st house and moon in 3rd house.

    • Hello Sir

      Saturn starves Moon which is not necessarily bad. Namely, it makes your mind (Moon) hungry for knowledge.
      Saturn as a malefic also increases negative experiences that influence your mind. When combining your thirst for knowledge and hardships, you become very mature in life. Such individuals usually mature early in their lives.

      Long story short, Saturn restricts the significances of the Moon which makes you long for them (Moon) more making you very sensitive.

      Best regards

      • That’s right Martin, I had harsh experiences; emotional restrictive, unhealthy and distant environment. I couldn’t freely express myself because I fear invalidation,minimisation of my feelings,ingnorance,disinterest,
        sudden lashing,etc. I haven’t truly shared my feelings, I just journal them.Sometimes on luck days I get an ear to listen but it’s like the usual.And like you said I long for the things related to moon.Martin would I be able to get emotional fulfillment where I feel free to express myself and feel everything?Like I don’t want to turn cold or lose warmth of my heart (like compassion and empathy). I am emotional and sensitive by nature but still these things sometimes worry me like I’m becoming little detached and apathetic.I’m currently running my moon dasha which will come to an next year. For information I have my Jupiter in cancer,Venus-Mars in libra, South node in scorpio and north node in Taurus(they are vargottam) and Sun-South node-Mercury in scorpio. In my d9 I have moon mars south node in scorpio.
        Would I be able to have emotional fulfilled and happiness in my life ? And will I have someone trustworthy to share my feelings?

      • So it won’t be a bad thing. I see.Knowledge like could it something related to psychology or emotional intelligence because I have a deep interest in it.
        Thank you Martin for Answering my question. May God bless you 🙏🏻.

        • If you look at six-fold strength, the positions in divisional charts influence the overall shadbala of a planet. In other words, Moon in Leo in D1 & D9 is very different from Moon in Leo in D1 & Scorpio D9.
