Astrologers believe that all the 9 Planets and 12 Zodiac signs represent some specific career traits. For instance, since the Moon rules the mind, and the mind rules your thoughts and actions, it is believed that your Moon sign has the maximum impact on your career traits.
Apart from Moon sign, the 10th house in your astrological chart also has a significant impact in deciding the most appropriate career for you. If your Moon sign and the 10th House positions are complementary in your birth chart, then the chances of you having a successful career are relatively more.
The various planets in Astrology and their effects on the 10th House have been briefly explained. The planets in the 10th House impact your career in this manner-
The Sun and your Career- In Astrology, the Sun is all about authority. With a strong Sun in your horoscope, suitable positions for you will be a prestigious job in an administration department or political career. This planet also represents Government services. You would do well as bureaucrats, bankers, presidents, politicians, CEO’s of large organisations etc.
The Moon’s impact- A strong Moon represents careers connected to feelings and caring for another, like nursing, psychologist, physician etc. A strong Moon can also suggest career in public relations, administration, hotels and restaurants.
Mars’s impact- This planet represents courage, both mental and physical. Thus, suitable careers are related to adventure and commanding positions of any kind. Since these natives are quite brave, they will be ideal for joining the army, military, police, professional sportspersons etc.
Mercury’s impact- Mercury represents careers related to communication, be it verbal, written, or even internet communication. Suitable careers like publishing and journalism, writing, teaching, web designing, editors, etc. are ruled by this planet. Mercury gives good negotiation skill to the native.
Jupiter’s impact- Since Jupiter is the planet of wisdom and knowledge, professions like a financial advisor, bankers, bureaucrat, lawyer, etc. are most suitable for this native.
Venus’ impact- Believed to be the planet for women, it is the symbol of beauty, entertainment, and sex. Venus represents careers related to luxuries, art, beauty (parlour), hotels, acting. Professions related to limelight or luxury such as designing, fashion designing, architecture, interior decoration, modelling, and fashion are also related to this planet.
Saturn’s impact- In Astrology, Saturn is called the planet of Karma. Careers connected to agriculture, labour or anything related to physical work, like constructing buildings, houses mining etc. all comes under the influence of Saturn.
Rahu Planet’s impact- Rahu is a very materialistic planet, despite being considered the most mysterious planet in Vedic astrology. It is the south node of the Moon. Since this planet’s energy brings a tendency to think in a different way or to do something different, careers related to the planet are not conventional. Rahu represents careers like physicians, researchers of medicine or drugs, waste- material-dealers, etc.
Ketu Planet’s impact- In Astrology, this planet denotes spirituality, and detachment. And this is the reason why it is related to careers related to occultists, a religious head like priest or pandit, translator etc.
Despite the influence that the various planets have on your career, your astrological chart can only tell you about your natural aptitude and learning for a specific occupation. This, however, does not mean that you will not succeed in a chosen field if it is not mentioned in your chart. With hard work, determination and the correct knowledge, you can be successful in any career you choose.
