"Effects of Vakri Shani for the Simha Rasi (Leo Sign)":
The Shani becomes Vakri (moving in a retrograde manner) from 18.02.2013. At present the Shani is traversing in the Thula rasi (Libra sign), where it maintain friendly relationship with the Sukra, who has the lordship over the Libra sign.
The Shani attains exalted strength in the Thula rasi (libra sign). But a graha attains neecha status (Debilitated position) by moving in a retrograde manner (Vakri) when it is placed in the exalted house. Thus the Shani would deliver a neecha effects (Debilitated strength) for the Simha rasi during this period.
The Shani and the Sun (Lord of Simha rasi) maintains unfriendly relationship between them on mutual basis. The Shani owns two malefic houses 6th and 7th for the Simha Rasi (Leo sign). The Shani stays in the Thula rasi, which is a 3rd house for the Simha Rasi (Leo sign). The 3rd house is less malefic in nature but not benefic either.
The Lordship over the malefic houses makes the Shani a highly malefic graha for the Simha Rasi (Leo sign). The retrograde movement of the Shani in a exalted house makes it to attain a neecha strength @ debilitated position. Thus it is always better for a malefic graha to lose its strength. Thus the retrograde shani (vakri shani) would bring some amount of relief to the Simha Rasi (Leo sign). Let us see the results of Vakri Shani on the Simha Rasi (Leo sign).
