If this sign is rising at the time of birth (Ascendant) more effect is on the body especially on head, If Moon is posited here effect will be on mind and nature of the person, If Sun is posited effect will be on intellect, or soul, or inherited nature. If none of above planet is related or posited here, then this sign tells about the family, socially related people, or social influence on the person. This is called as Bhava (house). We will discuss about the houses in detail in later chapters.
