Jupiter also rules your fourth house; unfortunately, when a benefic planet rules a cardinal house it becomes malefic, so in this case you can have problems dealing with its expansive energy.Unless it is strongly placed, Mercury will also turn from benefic to malefic, ruling the seventh and tenth houses. For Sagittarius rising, Venus is the most negative planet as it rules both the sixth house and the eleventh, both of which can signify injury and disease in your life.

Lagnas in Capricorn are usually tall with a well-built upper body. They usually live a long time, especially if Saturn is strong in the chart. If you have lagna in Capricorn you will have an essentially pragmatic approach to life and be patient, hardworking and persevering but perhaps rather distant on a personal level.

- Aquarius – ruled by Saturn
In Vedic astrology, Aquarius is considered the most diffcult rising sign as Saturn rules the first house as well as the twelfth house of loss.We consider that lagnas in Aquarius indicatevery evolved souls who will have to bear a great deal of suffering, karmic in nature; working for something more than just the obvious rewards will give you more fulfilment. Aquarians are not necessarily physically beautiful but they do have strong personalities. Jupiter rules the second and eleventh houses and, like Mercury in Leo, can help financially but may bring problems in other areas.Venus is a yogakaraka planet, giving success, andit works well with Saturn. Mercury is usually neutral with this lagna as it rules the fifth and eighth houses.
Mars, the Moon and the Sun will act negatively – Mars rules your third and tenth houses and the Moon rules your sixth. The Sun is always the enemy of Saturn and ruling your seventh houseit indicates that there will be testing times with marriage and other partnerships. Jupiter and the Sun are your maraka planets.
- Pisces – ruled by Jupiter
Pisces lagnas are usually large people with deep mysterious eyes.As Pisces is a water sign, it is likely that you will be intuitive and very emotional,possibly psychic and clairvoyant. Working for the good of all will bring you greater happiness and more success than a career based on personal fulfilment. You will probably have a great interesting astrology and other esoteric areas that encourage your awareness to expand. Life will improve as you grow older and you will gain great success in the form of respect for your empathy and good advice.
With Pisces rising Jupiter becomes malefic because it rules a cardinal house, your tenth house.This change from benefic to malefic applies also to Mercury, which rules your fourth and seventh houses. Saturn, the Sun and Venus are negative planets for you – Saturn rules the eleventh and twelfth houses, the Sun the sixth and Venus the third and eighth.
For Pisces rising Mars is a yogakaraka and thus a positive influence. The Moon's influence is also good (it rules the fifth house). Mars rules the death-giving second house for those with lagnas in Pisces; however it is not the maraka planet because it rules the auspicious ninth house and is very friendly to the lagna ruler, Jupiter. Saturn and Mercury are the maraka planets.
