Your horoscope affects your career profoundly as much as it defines your characteristics. Queries about the prospects of a career and the degree of success are the most common queries astrologers hear. Choosing a career by astrology involves taking several aspects of astrological factors into account. It is defined by the individual’s time of birth and planetary positions in conjunction with others.
Choosing a Career Through Vedic Astrology
Choosing a specific career and Vedic astrology go hand in hand. Your horoscope at the time of your birth is the blueprint of your entire life. A Vedic astrologer can use this horoscope as a guide to predict your strong areas. He can use this guide to study the placement of planets and the impact each planet has on your career prospects.
The astrologer can also read between the lines and highlight your hidden talents. He can almost clearly see the weaknesses and considers all factors to help you leverage on your characteristics. You may put all your efforts and plan for a specific career. However, you often end up in a completely different domain altogether.
The Role of the 10th House in Choosing Your Career by Astrology
When it comes to career and astrology, the 10th house in your natal chart rules your professional life. It points to career opportunities and helps a Vedic astrologer to suggest a lucrative profession for you. It’s cusp, called Mid Heaven or Medium Coeli, shows the highest point that influences your career goals and aspirations. It shows how you present yourself in society to earn your livelihood and reputation.
The D-10 Chart and an Individual’s Obsession
The Dasamsa Chart exposes the 10th house and probes deep into the details regarding a native’s profession. But, it’s still not enough as the 10th house shows only 20% of the career picture. Your passion and obsession predicted in the main chart combine with the divisional chart to determine your career. Different divisional charts represent each sector of your life and, the D-10 chart is for depicting your career.
Along with this chart, the placement and the sign Rahu resides in your birth chart points to a particular profession. Rahu is the signifying factor of your passion in life. The choice of your career through astrology yet again depends on all the houses with planetary combinations. In other words, the planets in conjunction with or that transit across MidHeaven define your birth and transit charts.

The Effect of Saturn
