SIMHAM / LEO (Makam, Purvaphalguni, Uttraphalguni 1)
Leo persons have great vital energy, and will not readily succumb to disease. The Leo usually puts up a brave fight to overcome without calling upon others for help, but when he gives up, he is usually very sick; yet he recovers rapidly. His pride will not permit him as a rule to become a charge upon others. Being a positive sign the greatest handicap to the Leo is impulse. A Leo person does everything with a very great amount of energy, which is detrimental to the health of the parts of the body ruled by this vital sign: the heart, aorta, vena cava, dorsal region of the spine, and the spinal cord.
The sun, which is the life giver, rules Leo and the vital etheric fluid coming through the spleen, which is the gateway of the solar forces. Those born with this sign rising are very vital and full of force, especially if the sun is also in Leo; but by the destructive use of their surplus energy they are often afflicted with heart trouble of various kinds as also spinal troubles.
They are also prone to dental problems, acidity, gastro problems, jaundice, ulcer etc.
