The full characteristics of the half-Moon and full- Moon figures described in the Karkataka Lagna attain (occupy) a more cross-wise breadth in this lagna. The facial part is broader than the head part. Sometimes as in figure X 186 the shape of the lion's, nose and mouth and in others, the Figure of a sleeping lion's face with its face stretched out (fig. 182), are observable. This is the sign of the Simha Lagna.
Persons born in this lagna are curt and dry in their speech, the voice rises mostly from the throat, heat and bile dominate their constitution. They will be broad-nosed, possess slender waists; Saturn. Mercury and Venus will be cruel to this lagna. Mars will be auspicious. Mars in conjunction with Jupiter will bring Raja-Yoga. In Figure 182, the face is broad. The head section appears inclined towards I.J.K.L.
The wheat line (AB) is, in the beginning broken up into slices. This denotes that the person will have suffered great troubles, loss of mother and educational frustration in his boyhood. From A to ? i.e. at about 32'/2 years or 33 the lines are broken. Hence upto 33 years the native will encounter many difficulties and hardships and thereafter, the period of rising fortune and happiness will begin from C.A subsidiary wheat line has begun straight from D. Hence, the native will have a family and high appointment from the 38 th year. From the upper side of line G we see 2 white lines proceeding to the nucleus of the whirl. From this it is clear that there are 2 planets with the Moon (the Sun, Mercury and the Moon). But, the horizontal H line has moved towards the nucleus of the whirl. This shows that there is a planet (Saturn) in the 7th House.
In the nucleus of the whorl we notice a white shade and broken semi-circles being thick. We. therefore, infer that there is a planet in the Lagna (There is Mars in the Lagna). As there is Mars in Lagna and Saturn in the 7th, there will be many obstacles to marriage. Family happiness will commence from 38th year.
Since, apart from the line proceeding on line G (line E). another subsidiary line has issued, the native will gain much eminence, education and fortune.
Figure 183 : The head part of the cross-wise Chakra is a little broad. The earth part and both the sides of the wheel, the Gunaka sign is dominant. The native will meet with disappointment in love, will suffer from lack of mental equanimity. And as there are long lines below the wheat line, the native will grow rich from the 40th year onwards.
In figure 184, the upper part has largely proceeded to the upper side of the mark M. In the S portion semi-circles diminish. Above the wheatline, the earth part is prominent from T to M. This sign reflects the end of the Simha Lagna. As the nucleus of the whorl harbours a small circular form, the presence of a favourable planet in the lagna is indicated.
Figure 185 :The lion's facial expression reflects the impression of the left thumb. Therefore, the wheat line should be measured from A. The line from A to ? does not seem fine, it is dented. This means that the native will abandon his native place in boyhood alone for a different place and (from B) the
native will rise to eminence from the 24th year.
In Figure 186, in the centre of the thumb the semi-circles are curly and wavy. On close examination we notice the lion's facial aspect. This is perfect Simha lagna. Figure 188, in the centre of the wheel, in the broad mouth-shaped circle, below the sign we notice the gunaka mark. This suggests the native's disquietude in family life. In Figure 18 only a very small part of Simha Lagna is left (From the upper part full semi-circles are absent).
In the centre of the nucleus we notice the figure of a bud. And, from the right side, a white shade enters inside suggesting the presence of planets in the lagna.
KANYA (VIRGO) LAGNA
It has been described above that in the Simha Lagna the face of the whorl is broad. The' Kanya Lagna is a sight of the woman. In this lagna the whirls run excessively to the left. On one side of the thumb the whirl-proof circle and in the other part from the head to the earth part we notice a slope. If we examine rather closely we will find that the figure of the lagna resembles a beautifully combed front part of a lady's forelock (The shape of this lagna looks like a conch or wheel which stands slanting towards a side). Those born in this lagna will be a little short and stout. They will be tactful and eloquent in talk, patient and interested in art.
Venus alone is favourable to this lagna. The sun will be a little helpful. But, Mercury in conjunction with Venus, confers Rajayoga. The rest are unfavourable.
In Figure 174, straight from the number of the lagna upto ? we notice sloping layers. Now lines from the same lagna number upto A are like the semi-bow or the parted forelock. The layers above D.C. (the earth part) are too many upto the head part marked B. This suggests the major earth part. On this earth part, the whirl seems to stand inclined to a side.
In Figure 175, whirl semi-circles are found on a side. But, in the nucleus we see a white tint and a half moon figure. This implies that there is a planet in the lagna.
In Figure 176, on the earth part, the head of the whirl seems to be sloping inclined to a side. The nucleus seems to shelter two whirl parts. Venus is in Lagna. Though Rahu also may be there, he is Chhaya graha. Its full sign is not visible.
Figure 177, appears a little like Simha Lagna. But the earth part occupies a large part. When we scan the first whirl (above the II VE mark) we notice another whirl outside. This type of united whorls is seen in the second and fifth lagnas (Mithuna and Kanya). A little below the middle of the full whirl, there are 2 white stream lines. This signifies that in the II house from the lagna, there are 2 planets. (In the 2nd there are Rahu and Venus planet). Of the 2 white lines one appears in full (the Venus); the second with a dim tint looks like Rahu.
Figure 178 : The thumb appears to be inclined to the left.
Figure 179: The left thumb which is bent to the right is the symbol of Kanya lagna.
Figure 180 : This also is indicative of Kanya Lagna with its conch form reclining on the earth part. Below the mark A a white streak has entered the
nucleus of the whirl and has moved out a little. This is the sign of the presence of Mars in the lagna.
In figure 180 there is the sign of a square at A. At the upper part of the square, there is the sign of a star. And adjoining the square but below it is a triangular figure, when we scan closely the part between the star sign and that of the triangle, we see the shape of a temple.
This sign confers an extraordinary yoga. The native will be highly generous, will belong to a noble family, will be astute in statecraft, will encourage charities to temples, educational institutions etc.. will attain great eminence
