The following defines each planet by ascendant, its particular effects as lords of certain houses.The Sun, as ruler of house 7, shows the tendency of Aquarius types to become dominated by others and to seek refuge through partnership or relationship. They usually marry superiors or take an inferior role towards their partners, or at least a role of service.
The Sun is generally inauspicious here (though some consider that it benefits by being a malefic lord of an angle).

The Moon, as ruler of house 6, shows their strong capacity to put their minds and emotions into work and service. It also shows their tendency towards disease from overly sensitive feelings and too much mental activity. It is generally inauspicious and often causes health problems.
Mars, as ruler of houses 3 and 10, shows their strong energy towards authorities and institutions. Sometimes they work for them as selfless workers. Other times they work against them as revolutionaries. It is generally impulsive and inauspicious.
Mercury, as ruler of houses 5 and 8, shows their capacity for profound intelligence, deep and philosophical thinking and understanding the mysteries of the psyche. Their minds are profound, ambiguous or dark. They may also suffer through children. It is generally auspicious but tainted by its rulership of the eighth (it is usually less auspicious than it is for Capricorn).
Jupiter, as ruler of houses 2 and 11, is a great planet of wealth and income. Aquarius types have a great capacity for material gain through their work once they get beyond their self subordination in life as they are capable of saving their resources until they can accumulate to the point of being really worth something. They will slave away for what they believe in and this may give them great rewards in time. Jupiter is a little inauspicious by house ruler-ship.
Venus, as ruler of houses 4 and 9, shows their basic sensitive and spiritual nature. Through it, they can gain power and success in life by manifesting the ethical ideals of their faith or belief. On a lower level, however, this may just be social pretence and adaptation to a group that may be devoid of ethics. Venus is a very auspicious planet and gives Raja Yoga.
Saturn, as ruler of houses 1 and 12, shows the Aquarian tendency towards self negation. In a higher sense, this can be selfless service or the negation of the ego into the divine. On a lower level, it can be servility and self degradation, the abuse of self. Whatever they have faith in they are willing to sacrifice all for, not only for themselves, but also for others. If it is a faith in God, it is greatly exalting. If it is a faith in a human group, like the mafia, it is greatly destructive. Saturn is generally auspicious as the lord of the ascendant but as the ruler of the twelfth it becomes perhaps the weakest of the ascendant lords.
Venus produces Raja Yoga, particularly when combined with Mars (ruler of house 10). Yet this tends to be a rather worldly combination. Saturn and Venus (rulers of houses 1 and 9) give more spirituality or integrity. Mercury and Jupiter together (rulers of 2 and 5) give good intelligence or good income.
Aquarius, as a fixed and air sign, shows a consistency of belief that is often unaware of practical realities. Its planets act with mystery and ambiguity, or in a subterranean manner. Aquarian concerns are usually not with the visible world but with the matters of faith and association.
