Tenth House in Vedic Astrology Part 1

Dr. Shanker Adawal

Part 1

Next we should examine the 10th house both from the Lagna and the Chandra (Moon). They represent among other things the occupational activities of the person concerned and strong 10th houses from the Lagna and the Chandra (Moon) are considered as one of the arguments in favour of a successful career and fruitful life. A weak 10th house proves the proposition and it is one of the factors which point to the opposite and adverse conclusions regarding the occupation. If the 10th house both from the Lagna and the Chandra (Moon) are strong or weak the Astrologer’s task becomes easy and simple. His opinions are quickly made; the findings are positive and the conclusions are absolute; if, however, both the 10th houses from the Lagna and the Chandra (Moon) are neither strong nor weak, i.e., one is strong and the other is weak the task of the Astrologer, the task of adjusting the 10th house in question, gets complicated. The various factors upgrading the one and pulling down the other are to be thoroughly examined, measured, weighed and balanced and the necessary adjustments are to be made and the balance to be struck in order to get down at the facts and to reach the conclusions.

We shall enumerate the factors which make the 10th house gain in strength and which enables us to label the 10th house powerful enough to be considered as one of the arguments in favour of a successful occupation and an eventful life. The 10th house which contains its lord is deemed strong. It gains in strength if a Planet happens to attain exaltation therein. The 10th house which is fully aspected by its lord gets upgraded thereby. The Surya (Sun) becomes powerful if it occupies the 10th house and the 10th house becomes powerful if it contains the Surya (Sun). If, however, the 10th house happens to be the house of the Surya’s enemy the gain both to the Surya and the 10th house is nominal by the occupation of the Surya of the 10th house. Again if the Surya (Sun) gets debilitated in the 10th house, the result is very negligible gain to both the Surya (Sun) and the 10th house.

The 10th house is strong if it is surrounded by the Benefics. If the Benefics are strong, the gain to the 10th house is very considerable; if the Benefics surrounding the 10th house are weak gain to the house is nominal: if one of them is strong and the other is weak due adjustments are to be made.
The 10th house is upgraded if it contains the lord/lords of the 5th and/or the 9th house provided the 10th house is not the house of their enemies or provided in the 10th house they do not happen to be in their debilitation.


The lords of the Kendras also benefit the 10th house by their occupation thereof but the gain is comparatively less. This is nominal the 10th house happens to be the house of the enemy of the lords of the Kendras which occupy the 10th house. Again the gain will be nominal if in the 10th house the lords of the Kendras happens to be debilitated. The lord of the 10th house is also to be examined to measure thoroughly the strength of the 10th house. A strong lord of the 10th house well placed and well aspected in the horoscope strengthens the 10th house. The lord of the 10th house is strong if it occupies its own house; it is also strong if it occupies the sign of its exaltation; it is stronger if besides being in its own house or in its sign of exaltation it occupies its own Navamsa or the Navamsa of its exaltation. It is exceedingly strong if besides being in its own house or in its sign of exaltation it occupies at the same time its own Navamsa or the Navamsa of its exaltation and the Nakshatra of a friend, or its own Nakshatra. The lord of the 10th house gathers strength by the full aspect of its dispositor – a Benefic or a Malefic. The lord of the 10th house gets strengthened by the full aspect of a strong Benefic. A Malefic which rules the 5th or the 9th house and which does not suffer from ay other Dosha strengthens by its full aspect the lord of the 10th house.
