The Importance of the Tenth House Part 2

Dr. Shanker Adawal

Part 2

The Significators of the 10th house are respectively the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn. It is a well-settled principle of astrology that the respective sign of the house significator, the lord of the house signifying any particular aspect and the lord of the current ruling period (Dasa, Antar Dasa) should all be very strong for a person to be very successful in his profession or business. The 10th house must be strong and the significator of the 10th house namely the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn should also be very strong. In many cases Mars also must be strong to give the native success in profession.

If the 10th lord occupies the 8th or the 12th house either from the ascendant or from the 10th house then the native may have to struggle hard to get high positions. However, if he has got many good Yogas like Pancha Maha Purusha Yoga, Raja Yoga etc. he will be able to get some substantial promotions and will attain high positions of course after struggling hard. If the 10th lord happens to be Mars and it occupies the 3rd house or it aspects the 10th house then the native will attain very high position easily and in quick succession inspite of any other contrary indications in the horoscope. Saturn in the 10th house is considered very bad and in practice Saturn’s aspect on the 10th house is found to be still worse except for Aries-Taurus-when he occupies the 8th house and aspects the 10th house. Jupiter in the 10th house is equally bad and it is worse if it conjoin any house other than the 6th, the 8th and the 12th houses from the ascendant then these planets make a man rise to dizzling heights within very short period.

The conjunction of the 9th and the 10th lord or the exchange of house between the 9th and the 10th lords is considered one of the best combinations for professional success in any horoscope. But even if they are very strong as above but attain mutual 6-8 position (Shadashta) in the Navamsa chart, then their benefic strength is reduced to less than 50%. The 10th lord defeated in inter-planetary war or an inter-planetary war occurring in the 10th house indicates that the native will have to eke out an earning the hardest way. Even if he gets high positions due to other Yogas he will not shine well. We now analyse the occupation by the 10th lord of the various houses. These observations apply Mutatis Mutandis to female horoscope as well.

1. When the 10th lord occupies the ascendant the native will become highly attached to his father but will develop enmity and animosity with his mother. His mother may not adhere to tenets and taboos of the case or religion after the death of the native’s father.

2. When the 10th lord occupies the 2nd house the native’s bringing up will entirely the responsibility of his mother. The native will be very veracious and his ambitions will touch the heights of the sky. He will be satisfied with ordinary type of food. But he will become well known. He will be willing to do anything for the sake of earning money. He will be clever and cunning and he will always prefer to act on other’s advice. In other words he will not be capable of taking own bold decision.

3. The native picks up quarrel with his mother and his maternal relatives when the 10th lord occupies the 3rd house. He will be contended with the ordinary earning of his and he will not be highly ambitious. He will depend upon his maternal uncle or maternal grand father for his future. He will however misguide people through his deliberate lies.

4. The position of the 10th lord in the 4th house is considered very good as it should be aspecting the 10th house in all cases. A native whose 10th lord is in the 4th house adheres to family customs and traditions and he will give more importance to moral values of life than to money. He will be very much attached to his parents and will be willing to do any sacrifice for their happiness. He will receive royal and political honours and he will build up good reputation. He will be quick at grasp and he will earn good name from his colleagues and subordinates.
