A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Rahu in Leo, so the description given here may change for you if your Rahu is although in the sign of Leo but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets. --
Rahu represents illusion, foreign lands, foreign things (foreign as in unknown things. So, for someone living in Punjab, culture and rituals of Kerala is also unknown and hence Foreign), Drugs, Medicines, any type of intoxication, fame, wealth, success, obsession, past-life left-over karma, movies, television, online world, cheating, imagined fears, unusual things, unique things, creativity, rule breaker. Rahu also blows things out of proportions.
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.
One thing we have to remember with posts related with Rahu through Signs is that Rahu converts himself as the lord of the sign it is sitting in and then amplifies quality of lord. Like, when Rahu is in Leo, Rahu will take all the qualities of Sun (Lord of Leo) and then will amplify those qualities out of limit. Rahu also does same to the planet it is sitting with. Like, if Rahu is with Saturn then it will take all the qualities of Saturn and blow them out of proportion during Rahu MD or Saturn MD. It is always better to have Rahu alone in a house rather than conjunct with a planet. Another thing with Rahu is that recently I have come across of the view that Rahu and Ketu don't have aspects on 5th or 9th house, for the simple reason that they are shadow planets and for aspects you need a sight not shadow. I am yet to verify it on at least 50 charts, so for now I will continue with traditional approach of 5th and 9th aspects of Rahu. Ideal placement for Rahu is to sit with an exalted planet, then it takes all the qualities of the exalted planet and amplifies them.
Here in Leo, it is a planet of creativity in sign of Creativity. So, end result is always a most creative person. This can create a very creative person who can make career in the movies, arts or sports. They can be termed as Celebrity of the Zodiacs. They want to be a celebrity or in position of King/Queen. Even if they don't become one, they always want people to treat them as celebrity. They dont want to lead a normal life. They want to be in center-stage. To reach that status, they are willing to do wrong deeds too. So, this is all with Rahu in Leo. They must follow their creative instincts in career. Jobs are not for them. There are two ways to look at the results of all these acts. Some people say that all these acts are paying them money in the end, hence they are doing it. I feel that money is the most natural outcome of any work. You do any work in this world and you will get money. There is no work in the world which doesn't pay you back. So, I feel that the basic fact that they are dedicating themselves to a higher cause is meaningful and most important. Money is an outcome which is bound to come.
Now, the impact of Rahu will depend on Rahu's position in a particular Nakshatra. If Rahu is in Magha Nakshatra, then Ketu's position will decide the functioning of Rahu in Leo as Magha's lord is Ketu. If Rahu is in Purva-Phalguni Nakshatra, then Venus will impact Rahu's result. If Rahu is in Uttara-Phalguni Nakshatra, then Sun's position will be deciding Rahu's impact.
Also, as Sun is Lord of Leo, Sun's condition will have the highest say on Rahu's impact in Leo.
Tomorrow, Rahu in Virgo.
