Encyclopedia of Vedic Astrology: Wealth & Prosperity: Analysing the Tenth House or the Karmasthana, Chapter VIII, Part - 1

Dr. Shanker Adawal

The tenth house represents the earning of wealth and prosperity by means of career or profession. It represents wealth earned through hard work and action performed by the native. The wealth earned through job, profession or business where the native performs hard work and labour to earn money is represented by this house. This house also belongs to the Kendra house. Therefore it is necessary that the tenth house be properly analysed to accertain the prospects of earning wealth and prosperity of any individual by his career or profession.

An unblemished tenth house, its lord and its significator, also aspected or occupied by the benefic planets indicate progress and achievements in career and profession and hence earning of wealth and prosperity in the life of the native. The significator of the tenth house is Moon.

Whereas if the tenth house or its lord or its significator becomes afflicted or aspected or occupied by the malefic planets then the native fails to progress in his career or profession and it obstructs the smooth earning of wealth and prosperity in life inspite of all hard work. It becomes difficult for the native to earn wealth or earn sufficiently even after working very hard.

The placement of the tenth lord in auspicious houses like Kendra houses (1st 4th 7th & 10th) and the Trikona houses (1st 5th & 9th), its association with the Yogkaraka planet and other benefic planets and most importantly its placement in the constellation of a benefic planet are the important considerations to be sought for while judging the tenth house as these factors lend strength to the tenth lord.

Whereas the placement of the tenth lord in the 6th 8th or 12th house, or associated with the malefic planets and debilitated planets and its placement in the constellation of any malefic planet weakens its strength.

Placement of benefic planets in the tenth house and exchanges of signs between the lords of the tenth house with the lords of 1st 2nd 5th 9th or 11th houses ensures success and progress in job, career or profession and smooth earning of wealth and prosperity to the native.
