Delineating one's career has always been, at least in modern times, one of the most important jobs of astrology. "What should I do? What am I good at? Where do my talents lie? How can I make a log of money and yet love my work?" So, these article represents combinations that should be taken as probable and useful indicators of career leanings and not as the last word in career delineations.

Doctor - There should be strong connection between the 5th house of healing, 10th house of career & 12th house.

Lawyer - Jupiter, the planet of law, and the 9th house of law must be strong.

Teacher - Jupiter, the planet that rules children and higher education, ought to have good strength in the kundali (chart).

Sex Industry (including exotic dancing. "Adult" media, etc.) - Venus and Mars should be very strong and expecting each other, conjunct each other, conjunct or in each other's sings.

Music - Obviously, Venus - the artistic planet must have strength, preferably either in its own sign, exalted, vargttama, retrograde or with dig bala (in the 4th performing arts and self efforts should be strong. The 5th house of creativity should be attractive.

- The 4th house (of houses and land), Mars (the planet of construction and building skills) and Saturn (the planet of the Earth) must all be well represented in the chart.

Successful entrepreneur or captain of industry - First, the chart should have many Dhana Yogas (money combinations) and Raja Yogas (leadership combinations). Dhana Yoga is defined as a connection between the 1st, 2nd, 5th, 9th and 11th houses or their lords (rulers). A Raja Yoga is defined as a connection between the 1st, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th and 10th houses.

Celibate or enunciate Yogi - The following house should have affections: the 1st House of self-confidence, the 2nd house of money and family life, the 4th house of happiness and home, the 5th house of children and the 7th house of marriage. This comes from Nandan Chirmulay.

Modeling (or the beauty industry) - Venus, and the 1st and 2nd houses are strong.

Technical careers - the natural malefic (Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu) are strong.

Writing - Mercury, Jupiter, and the 3rd house and 5th house are well indicated in the char.

Skill at foreign languages - Mercury, Ketu, the 2nd house and Jupiter should all be strong.

Manager and/or leadership abilities
- strong 1st, 5th 10th houses; the Sun (the planet of kings) and Mars (the macho planet) should also be strong.

Automobile Business - Venus (planet of luxuries - including large vehicles), Mars (the mechanical planet) and the 4th house of cars should all be unusually strong.

Success in foreign countries
- the 9th and 12th house must be strong. Rahu and Ketu are often prominent as well as they are the planets of "foreignness."

Astrology - Jupiter (the planet of tradition and divinity), Mercury (the planet of talking and calculations) and Ketu (the Enlightener) should be strong.

Cooking - the 2nd house, the Moon and Mars should be strong.

Sports - Mars (the planet of courage), the 3rd house of courage, the 5th house of games and the 6th house of competitiveness should be strong.

Other than the sex trade and enunciates, it is always good to have a strong 1st house, because the 1st house is the foundation of all success in life.

Hopefully, this is somewhat useful. You can see that astrology is filled with "astrological common sense." that is, it is mostly just putting together the meanings of each planet, sign and house in novel and interesting ways.
