A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Jupiter in Leo , so the description given here may change for you if your Jupiter is although in the sign of Leo but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets.
So, lets see what Jupiter can do in Leo without any conjunction or aspect from any other planet. 1st lets see what these 2 things represent --
Jupiter is the most benefic planet and it represents all the auspicious things like Knowledge, Wisdom, Law, Guru, Spirituality, Religion, Philosophy, Literature, Elderly People. For a girl, Jupiter also represents Husband.
Leo is 5th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things associated with 5th house of horoscope like Love, Creativity, Arts, Being on Stage etc. Besides that, Leo is basically the Lion. This is the sign of feeling like King or Queen. Also, it is a sign of independence, Confidence, Ego, Self Esteem etc. Leo is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatra namely Magha, Purva-Phalguni and Uttara-Phalguni. Leo's lord is Sun.
Now, this is another very good placement for Jupiter as Leo is the sign of Royal-ness and Authority. So, Jupiter here makes a person work towards gaining authority on the basis of his knowledge. Here, person feels that he has all the great knowledge and due to which he should be well respected in society. So, when they teach someone, they expect a respect from the person. That's what differs this position from Jupiter in Cancer as in Jupiter in Cancer, person is all about giving knowledge in an unselfish manner but here it wants/expects/demands a regal status. As Leo is sign of creativity and Jupiter is all about expansion, it makes a person highly creative in the field of arts, theater and creative self expression. Due to this reason, I don't feel it is a bad thing that these people expect a regal status because they know they deserve it. Even as a teacher too, they are no more emotional like Jupiter in Cancer but authoritative. They expect their students to do well after they are done with their teachings because on success of students, their own future depends. Overall, their effort is always on gaining authority and regal-ness. This is also the reason why they should be working on their own because it will be difficult for them to accept the authority of others.
Now, the impact of Jupiter will depend on Jupiter's position in a particular Nakshatra. If Jupiter is in Magha Nakshatra, then Ketu's position will decide the functioning of Jupiter in Leo as Magha's lord is Ketu. If Jupiter is in Purva-Phalguni Nakshatra, then its lord Venus will be deciding factor. If Jupiter is in Uttara-Phalguni Nakshatra, then Sun's position will be deciding Jupiter's impact.
Also, as Sun is Lord of Leo, Sun's condition will have the highest say on Jupiter's impact in Leo.
Tomorrow, Jupiter in Virgo.
