Planets and its influence on career

In the quest to understand the importance of planets that influence our career many astrologers often
restrict themselves to the 6th house, the house of service and the 10th house, the house of career. Planets
occupying the 6th house or the 10th house will be looked at with a lot more importance and predictions
are made. The dasha, antardasha operating at the time is often overlooked and hence predictions made go
awry. The planets which are more active during the dasha period, antardasha period will play an equal / if
not more active role in determining the efficacy of the predictions.
Similarly apart from the 6th house and the 10th house, the 3rd house also plays an important role in
determining the growth in career. 3rd house happens to be the 6th house from the 10th house / 10th house
from the 6th house indicating its importance. It is the house which determines the abilities of the
individual to handle a job, service thereby shaping up the career of the native. A strong 3rd house gives a
good and high achieving career for which the services are recognized significantly. Similarly a weak 3rd
house will not give the native advances in his career and his life will be full of struggles.
The third house in Astrology deals with all art related matters. Painting, singing, writing, films, dance,
drama are some of the matters which are governed by the third house. In the charts of famous actors and
singers we very often see a strong third house or many planets placed in the third house. We even see a
strong third house in the charts of archeologists, journalists, and people associated with the media
industry. Venus is not the karaka of the third house but Venus represents art and all the third house
matters indicated above. When Venus gets connected with the third house either by ownership,
occupation or aspect, it gives a boost to the third house matters. Those who are looking for a career where
glamour and public attention are involved need to have a strong Venus and a strong third house. Together
with Venus other planets will produce different artists when placed in the third house.
Mercury indicates writing and when a strong Mercury gets associated with the third house a career in
writing is indicated. If not a career in writing, then a person may have good writing skills. This is seen in
the charts of journalists and writers. Professors and teachers are seen from Jupiters occupation, aspect or
ownership of the third house, as Jupiter being Guru governs the teaching profession. Saturn in third
house, career-wise, gives an interest in philosophy. If a person is a writer, his writings will be
philosophical with Saturn in the third house; if a movie director, then he will make movies that have a
philosophical outlook. Ketu and Rahu if aspected by a benefic will give glamour and the struggle for it.
Mars indicates courage, as does the third house and its relationship with the third house can give a career
in fields like police and defense. Sun placed in third house is the same as Mars in the third house and will
give courage. Moon in the third house career-wise indicates an interest in psychology.
A strong third house gives good concentration abilities to the person. With this power a person can focus
all his energies on the desired objects and achieve them easily. The third house governs willpower as
well. With strong willpower a person can achieve many things easily in life. Afflictions to the rest of the
birth chart but a strong third house at the same time can give a person what he wants through sheer
willpower.

Which Profession should I select - through


Astrology?
This question has been asked to me by many persons and I feel that my fellow colleagues would have
been asked too. The answer to this question is not simple because of the variety of new fields & career
options that are coming up nowadays.
The knowledge of astrology here plays an important role. The field of interest, the area of skills, whether
the career will be profitable or not can be known through this divine science. This knowledge will help

the students / parents in making a right choice so that he can prosper in future. This will also help an
individual in avoiding certain decisions which are taken on the spur of the moment and save the
embarrassment later on.
The zodiac is divided into 12 different signs and 12 houses which form the basis of the birth chart. This
division is known to all those who have basic astrological knowledge.
The 10th House is known as the House of Karma or profession. Planets which are deposited in the 10th
house are important in deciding the strength of the natives profession. A strong 10th house will indicate
that the native will rise higher in his area of profession. The sign in which the 10th house falls is also
important for the lord of this sign and its placement in the birth chart / divisional charts (varga) will be
important in deciding the nature of profession. The Planets which aspect this planet or the 10th house is
important in deciding the conditions / situations in the natives professional workplace. A good aspect
will give good working environment to the native and give happiness to the native in his profession.
Illustrating the above with an e.g. for Ascendant in Aries (mesh rashi). The 10th house is Capricorn
(makar rashi) and hence the lord of the 10th house is Saturn (shani). Any planet which is deposited in
capricorn will increase / decrease the strength of the 10th house. This will determine whether the native
will rise high or stay at a lower position in his career. If there is no planet in the 10th house then the
strength has to be seen from the placement of the 10th lord in the birth chart / divisional charts. The
position of Saturn in the vargas and the aspect (dristi) it receives will decide the nature and environment
of profession.
Natives having aries ascendant are bold, self-confident and impulsive; they aim to lead, dislike to follow,
are always ready to take the initiative in any movement that appeals to them, but often lack persistence to
carry their projects to a conclusion over serious obstacles.
Shani in the 1st house (lagna) will be debilitated (neecha), this means that the lord of the 10th house is in
the 1st house (lagna). This will make the native toil hard and make him a self made man. This
combination will help the native rise all by himself & due to his own efforts. The rise for the native will
be in the old age because sani signifies an old man. Sani will also be the lord of the 11th house (kumbha
rasi), hence the native will get financial benefits also during old age. The native will prosper in the
profession depending on the aspects that is received from other planets. If there is no planet having a
dhristi to this sani then it is considered highly unfortunate. It is always better to receive some aspect than
having no aspect at all. Next thing to be looked at is whether sani is receiving any aspect (dhristi) or not.
mars having an aspect to this sani, here mars is the lord of 1st house (mesha rashi) & 8th house
(Vrischic rashi) and is a benefic planet for aries sign. It will boost this combination and the native will be
able to prosper at a much faster pace. Mars dhristi will give the native much energy to be very active in
matters related to profession. Such natives will come out successful where lot of struggle and hardships
are required in the profession. This combination has been seen on surgeons doing postmortem (Saturn
signifying death and mars signifying operations).
venus having an aspect to sani, here venus is the lord of the 2nd house (vrushabh rashi) and the 7th
house(Tula rashi). This native will be able to earn money with the help of partnership and business
especially in female companionship. Such a native usually prospers after marriage. This combination is
seen for persons involved in flora and fauna, florist, agriculture.
mercury having a dhristi to this Saturn, here mercury is the lord of 3rd house (mithun) and the 6th
house (kanya). The native is seen to succeed in service in the fields of communication, IT and is also
good for becoming an astrologer. Sani is also a significator for HR (labour related activities). The 3rd
house is the house of communication and the 6th house is house of service. This means that the native
will succeed in service related industry which is involved in communication and human beings like
BPOs , call centre, union leadership, relating to labour industry, HR firms, recruitment agencies etc.

A native with Taurus Lagna has a slow and plodding nature, it also makes him persistent in whatever he
undertakes, and his talent in a certain direction will be exploited to its fullest extent. Such people are
conservative in nature. They may see and desire improvements in various lines, but are slow to adopt
measures and accomplish the desired end; Setbacks which would take the courage from a person with
Aries Lagna do not daunt this native, he knows no defeat, and therefore he usually gains his goal in the
end and achieves success by concentration upon one point, and persistence in following his chosen path.
These people are "thorough and steadfast" in their work, they persist in a given direction, and neither
reason nor argument will turn them. They are argumentative in defense of their actions or opinions; they
grasp new ideas slowly, with difficulty and conservatively, but once understood, they always remember
what they have learned and defend their opinions.
The 9th and the 10th house lord for this native is Saturn. That is why it is also called as a yoga karaka for
them. The 9th house will represent purva punya or fortune and the 10th house will represent their karma.
The position Sani occupies for this Taurus Lagna native will determine the direction and nature of his
karma or profession.
Sani occupying the 1st house is regarded as highly fortunate for this native. It makes him slow in his
speech but whatever he says will have weight and will be worth hearing. It gives him a quiet disposition,
he will be slow to decide, but stubborn in maintaining a position once taken. These people can be trusted
to keep their own and other people's secrets. This combination gives the native a profession in an
organisation where he is able to access confidential reports and requires secrecy to be maintained.
When Saturn is in Taurus in Lagna and Mercury is in Scorpio, he causes trouble with his speech. It also
gives him a quick temper. He also suffers from the tendency to be melancholy; such people tend to drop
everything they take into their hands. It makes him timid. This combination is not a good one for
partnership and doing business. But mercury in other houses can give good insight to the native with
ability and logic. If mercury is in Kumbha or Makar Rashi, then this will give him good programming
skills and success in the field of computers, analyst, planning etc.
When venus is with or having a drishti to Sani or the 10th house for a Taurus Lagna native then these
people are stingy in all money matters and exceedingly money minded. This combination is good for
accumulating money in service, having female colleagues and a profession related to fashion designing,
horticulture, electronics. However these natives have poor business judgment and therefore are liable to
losses, failure and bankruptcy in business.
If Mars is with or having a dhristi to Sani or the 10th house for a Taurus lagna native then it position
gives financial difficulties in profession and in business. This is because mars will be the lord of the 7th
and 12th house to this native. This combination can be regarded as unfortunate to the native as it can
make him cruel, deceitful and treacherous. These natives could have a profession which requires
violence, destructive nature or demolition. However benefic aspects from other planets can also make the
native a civil engineer, archeologist or an architectural engineer. The type of career will also require the
native to settle at a place which is very far from his birth place.
Moon with Saturn in Taurus is good for concentration of the mind and can give the native the ability to
do research and higher studies in management.
Jupiter with or having a dhristi to sani or the 10th house for a Taurus lagna native gives a strong character
with a deep and philosophical mind, a benevolent disposition with a strong sense of justice and fair play.
Jupiter is the lord of the 8th and the 11th house for these natives, hence they will consequently gain honor
and esteem in their community. They will gain prosperity commensurate with the environment in which
they are placed, for this combination gives sound financial judgment, the ability to grasp opportunity,
benevolence, devotion to duty, religion and all good objects in life.
Sun with or having a dhristi to sani or the 10th house for a Taurus lagna native endows the person to have
some of the finest faculties in administration, this combination brings out the best qualities in the two

planets. It gives foresight, method and organizing ability with the moral stamina to carry any project to its
successful conclusion despite delays and obstacles. Yet the person makes no enemies and he would never
stoop to do anything mean for he is sincere and just in his dealings with all men. It brings success in
political and judicial positions, also in connection with mining or agriculture. However there is difficulty
in finding and keeping employment, trouble with employers and authorities.

Selecting a Career / Profession through Astrology


A person will succeed by having a profession as indicated by strongest sign in the horoscope. A sign
which has the support of its lord or aspected by benefic planet is considered to be strong. The most
powerful and dominant planet in a horoscope has often a say in deciding ones career, especially when he
is the lord of the ascendant or lagna.
Planets give excellent indications of success and failures in the various professions. If children are guided
properly and are given liberty to act according to their likes and aptitudes, they can build a bright future
for themselves. Many times education is wasted because millions of people pursue wrong vocations. In
21st century every skill is part and parcel of money generating scheme and have acquired their firm
places in any profession. Astrology can help one evaluate the prospective of a child and can have a
reasonable idea of the field in which this has best chance to develop.
This article attempts to divide professions according to the birth signs. The birth position of Ascendant /
Birth Moon / Birth position of Sun / Lord of the Ascendant / Lord of the 10th house / Placement of the
10th lord should be integrated and considered together. The strongest of all the above will be likely to
give the result. However a proper conclusion can only be met when the horoscope is analyzed properly
from career perspective.

Profession through Astrology


Planets in 10th house, lord of the 10th house, those influencing Lagna, lord of lagna, the Sun and the
Moon, are all significators of profession. The signs occupied by the significators of profession also
influence the nature of the profession. Consideration of all the three lagnas - Janma lagna, Chandra lagna
and the Surya lagna is necessary. The tenth house is a very important house in the horoscope of a person.
It is the house which determines one's rank, social status, and profession of a person.
In this article I have tried to include the importance of the planet Sun on profession related matters.
If the Sun is placed in the tenth house and is strong by being in friendly sign, Moolathrikona or
exaltation. It produces outstanding success in life. One gets a patronage of highly placed officials and
noble men. It also denotes much success in government circles and embassies. The person enjoys good
reputation and credit. He has steady success in his undertaking. In middle life, he may expect honors and
eminence.
The Sun indicates government service, trees, timber, chanting of hymns, gambling, wool, medicine,
metalwork, gold, father, kings, fire arms, fire, poisons, and forests. The Sun denotes employment in the
State Service, administration or management. It indicates people having much authoriy and power. The
Sun denotes government offrcials, kings and administrators. One may be in a government service, or in
the senrice of a noble man or king.

The Sun indicates one's father. When the Sun is connected with the 10th house one may have income
through his father. Or he may use his father's property as capital and thereby prosper. This can be so
when the influence of the lords of the 9th house or 5th house falls on the Sun. The Sun indicates
medicine, and medical profession too.
If it is a significator of profession, by being connected with the 10th house, and other significators (like
