DECODING CAREER APTITUDE IN HOROSCOPE
Judging career aptitudes is one of the most difficult areas of astrology. Occasionally, a chart will offer a clear picture that makes it easy to see a vocational direction. More often, however, it’s a mixed bag that defies simple categorisation. Nonetheless, by following some basic rules of Vedic astrology ( along with some western ideas), we can catch a glimpse into the person’s probable areas of worldly engagement and by using some of the jyotish `s unique timing techniques, we can predict when the most favourable periods for career advancement will be.
INFLUENCE OF HOUSE AND PLANETS IN HOROSCOPE
In Vedic astrology, one assesses career by blending the influences of key houses and planets. The most important houses are the first house of lagna. If we had only one house to analyse before making a judgement, this would be it. The first house represents the person as a whole and therefore planets or aspect here can shape a person’s outlook that reflects the planet’s significances.
THE 1ST HOUSE OR LAGNESH
The 1st house ruler or lagnesh is also important. A person with Pisces rising that has lagnesh Jupiter closely conjoined by Venus will probably need to express that Venusian side in some fundamental way in their lives. But that only narrows down our choices somewhat since Venus encompasses a fairly wide range of vocational options. It may be art, entertainment, beauty, and cosmetics, or prostitution, to name a few. We can narrow down these choices even more by looking at the rest of the key factors in the chart.
EXAMINING THE SUN AND THE MOON
Next, we need to examine the conditions of luminaries, the sun, and the moon. Since they are fundamental to the personalities, they will often find expression in the career.
A CAREER ASTROLOGY IN IT
If the Sun is placed in Gemini conjoining mercury aspected by Mars, this might result in a computing career or something else that blends the nature of information, communications, and technical knowledge.
A CAREER ASTROLOGY IN HEALTH
Or maybe the moon is placed in Virgo, the sign of healing, and rules the 6th house of Cancer and is placed in the 8th house. These combinations may give an interest in the health field, especially the areas of alternative health and life extensions as represented by the 8th house. Moreover, let’s say this combination was expected by the first lord Saturn, thus looking it back to the first house or the person as a whole.
IMPORTANCE OF 10TH HOUSE
As in western astrology, the 10th house is most closely connected with a career. Here I like to make primary use of the whole sign 10th house and its lord to assess career influences. The unequal 10th house cups or MC may also be used for supplementary information. While the house position of 10th house lord does not necessarily dictate the direction of the career, it can sometimes express its flavour or style. Again, it is important to look for repeating themes. If the 10th house lord in the 8th house and the nodes are prominent in some way and the person has some Scorpio rising, then we might start to look at typical 8th house career such as metaphysics or affairs of dead.
THE BEST HOUSE, SIGN AND PLANET IN A HOROSCOPE
Another strategy is to find the best house, the best sign, and the best planet in a chart. Perhaps there is an exalted planet in the horoscope. If there is, it may exercise a strong influence on career selection particularly if it’s dispositor and nakshatra dispositors are well placed. The same goes for swakshatra planets or planets in its own sign. Jupiter in Sagittarius may guide the native towards law, academics and religion if it is closely aspected by mercury or Venus and its nakshatra dispositor ( Ketu, Venus or sun depending on where in Sagittarius it is ) are well placed and associated with the 10th house.
