Jupiter Transit In Leo From July 14, 2015 in Vedic Astrology (Guru Gochara in Simha Rashi)

Jupiter Transit in Leo in Vedic Astrology-

Jupiter (Guru) is going to be transiting in Leo (Simha) Rashi from July 14, 2015 after its exaltation in transit in the signCancer (Karkaṭa or Karka) over the past year. It continues to be in a friendly sign, as Leo is ruled by the Sun and the two planets are naturally friendly to each other.

Astrological Jupiter-

Jupiter is a slow-moving, outer planet likeSaturn and its transit has great influence over human affairs. Being the greatest benefic in the zodiac, Jupiter represents divinity in any horoscope and traditionally this is used to see blessings coming to individuals. Owing to the speed of its motion, its effect it felt in a concentrated manner over defined areas for a notable length of time. 


Slow-moving outer planets are bestowed with special planetary aspects (Graha Dṛṣṭi or Graha Drishti) and the blessings of Guru (Jupiter) come through its own special aspects.

While all planets, save the headless, and therefore, sightless Ketu have the 7th House aspect, and so does Jupiter, its special aspects are those to the 5th and the 9th houses (Bhāvas or Bhavas). Insight and divine grace inform future actions and wisdom comes from eternal knowledge and so both crucial life areas of the future and the past come to be blessed by Jupiter due to its special aspects. 

Myth About Marriage-
There is a prevalent myth in some circles that marriage should be avoided when Jupiter is transiting in Leo (Simha Rāśi). Nothing could be further from the truth as the scriptures could not have laid down an onerous condition of this sort extending to over a year. Even otherwise, the true meaning of the dicta in this regard relates to an entirely different transit. In that transit the implications are indeed prohibitive of marriage but this has no relation with the Gochara of Gurū in Simha Rāśi.

Effects of the Jupiter Transit in Leo-

Leo (Simha) is a royal Agni Tattwa Rāśi representing larger than life figures, celebrities and political leaders. Natives with Karma for power are not infrequently born with this Rāśi dominant in some way, either as the Udaya Lagna- the Ascendant or as the Ārūḍha Lagna or the Moon sign (Cañdra Rāśi or Chandra Rashi).

When the benefic Jupiter transits this sign people with fame and power are likely to receive tremendous direction in life as Gurū has 100% Digbala/ directional strength in the Lagna.

Jupiter is the Natural Significator for the Dhī Śakti or the power of discriminating intelligence (Viveka) and in the sign will imbue Leo with this quality. There is also the matter of unconditional grace coming as Jupiter does not drive a bargain and simply gives without expectation.

Leo (Simha) is also the 5th House of the natural zodiac and rules children and the future as too the framework of concepts and ideas which form the individual. These life areas are likely to be impacted in positive fashion.

The Fire Signs of Sagittarius & Aries:

I have mentioned the special aspects of Jupiter and from its transit station in Leo, it aspects Sagittarius (Dhanusha or Dhanuṣa) and Aries (Meṣa or Mesha) respectively.

People with the spiritual impulse will find advancement in leaps and bounds and professionals in finance, teaching, physics, metaphysics, law, judiciary and any line of work requiring great cerebral participation will witness a divine thrust towards higher ground. Religion and government policies are likely to be charged with a vision for the future subject to the overall Karma prevailing in context from natal horoscopes.

Likewise, entrepreneurs, innovators, police and armed forces personnel, engineers and technical people will feel grace coming from the past actions performed.

Impact of the Jupiter Transit on Various Rashis (Signs)-


As indicated above, the sign experiences positive grace from Jupiter as it culls out the best of past exertions and in some cases good Karma from the past lives to refurbish life realties.

Commercial real estate and realtors are also likely to feel this.

Aries/ Mesha Ārūḍha Lagna sustains accumulated merit extremely well and it will appear in its best form now. This applies to things like awards, rewards accolades and recognition.  


Matters related to the home and properties, mother and final cure from ailments receive the blessings of God during this transit and family comes to the fore. We should remember that Jupiter is exalted in the 4th House of the natural zodiac.

Taurus Ārūḍha Lagna (Vṛṣabha-Vrishabha) faces some sort of an encounter with the truth when they seek to enlarge their immovable wealth and before applying the balm in family matters and the like, transit Jupiter is likely to expose the wound.


This is not the best transit for Mithuna (Gemini) as Gurū is in Maraṇa Kāraka Sthāna (Marana Karaka Sthana) for this sign. Kama and Maithuna are not the forte of the preceptors of the Gods and understandably he feels rather overwhelmed here. Value systems and personal projections in any realms whatsoever need to be watched with care.  

Gemini Ārūḍha Lagna is to take exponentially greater care and those with vulnerable life circumstances are advised to tread with gentleness towards their own selves and to seek help at the earliest at the first sign of seemingly insurmountable difficulty.

Jupiter in the 3rd Bhāva from the Ārūḍha Lagna is a cause for some concern, especially in a friendly sign.


Just as the natives of Rāśis (Rashis) feel relief with the exit of Saturn, Cancer Rāśi and Lagna will feel regret when Jupiter leaves this sign. The beautiful blessings of wisdom and kindness and perspective are about to become backdrops in the mind and in the intelligence.

Movable wealth gets a huge boost as Gurū is the Dhana Kāraka (Natural Significator for wealth) transiting the house of wealth in a friendly sign. Kula or the family gets blessed and feels even better with the fortified bank balance.

The situation is even better for Karka Ārūḍha Lagna as the benefits are directly visible in the areas mentioned above.


Please refer to the note above at the appropriate place.  For Simha Ārūḍha Lagna though there will be a reality check before the benefic grace manifests. The image in the world really rises but only after what holds it back is brought to view.


This is the perfect time for Virgo to start something new and also to let go of the old. Foreign trips will be particularly intriguing and conspicuous especially as Gurū is the Bādhaka for the Lagna. Ashramas and the house of the Gurū are locations that Virgo natives will do well to be found in.

For some hospitals will come into play as the 12th House from the Lagna rules these as well.

For Virgo Ārūḍha Lagna expenses on the more deserving things rise will happen which is always more desirable as the 12th House shows the feet and indicates the Gati.

Income and gains rise for the Libra individual but only if these are promised. Else, Jupiter can expose the Satya behind what is wrong with life in a given case. The reason is the oft-ignored Bādhaka (Badhaka) and the Bādhakeśa (Badhakesha). Jupiter is fundamentally opposed to the Bādhakeśa and so there is a paradox here.

For those Libra natives where this is not in the offing there is no such danger and Jupiter will act as the significator of the 11th House. The ‘which is which and who is who’ in Jyotiṣa only emerges from the analysis of the natal horoscope.

The positive aspects are what will transpire for the Libra Ārūḍha Lagna.


Jupiter forms the Amala Yoga in transit for this Lagna leading to a spotless reputation. The company where you work will prosper at least in your context and for independent professionals and freelancers this transit affords an opportunity to escalate the quality of application in work.

For Scorpio Ārūḍha Lagna the situation is very real as improvement happens only after the potholes are spotted and dealt with in the work domain.


I have written hereinabove describing the aspects of transit Jupiter, but for the Dhanusha Ārūḍha Lagna the opinion runs as follows. Despite the fiery optimism of Sagittarius they might find the going tough in the manifest arena of naive realism. Efforts do not easily yield success and competition appears foreign to the nature. Jupiter is a removed, metaphysical, otherworldly force and is not easily given to thrashing about with others to get what it wants. Strive with this rider firmly set in the mind.


Simha is a Dusthana for this sign and either issues with future plans or children will come to the fore. Inexplicable events might occur with Guru going to the Bhāva of Adhi and Vyādhi which are but modes of unseen distress.

The 8th House contains Nija Dosha (own acts and their results) and whatever emerges from there is what is due.

The situation is very different for the Makara Ārūḍha Lagna as loans and financial help will be readily available for business expansion especially in partnership or with the marital partner.


For Kumbha Lagna, Guru is blessing the house of marriage and a radical improvement in the attitude towards the spouse of not to all others that one interacts with may be found.

This is the time to put to test one’s innermost desires and plans.

For the natives with the Ārūḍha Lagna occupied by this sign growth shall be preceded with an appraisal of areas in which growth is required.


For those to whom this is destined this is a time to aspire for freedom from enemies both external and internal. The Ṣaḍṛpu (Shadripu) cannot survive in the face of knowledge and the external enemies are conquered with the grace of Jupiter.

The Pisces Ārūḍha Lagna suffers the same pressures as does the Mithuna Ārūḍha Lagna and there is danger of issues with finances and children arising with the attitude getting firmed up to letting go.

These are dominant transit strains and stand to be significantly altered by the dynamics and the Karma of the natal horoscope.
