Karma bhava - House of business

The 10th house corresponds to an earth sign and is therefore a house of artha (wealth).

Career, profession, fame, honor, status, government, holy pilgrimages, good deeds, activities benefiting society, authority figures, government officials.

Karma bhava governs one's career and status. It is a simple house In that there are relatively few meanings to keep inmind, but certainly rulership of career and fame make it a significant part of a horoscope.

The main caution to be aware of in considering the 10th house is that a thorough analysis (sign, sign rulers, planets occupying, etc.) may not produce an accurate prediction of a person's profession. This is because there are so many factors involved in a person's choice that only through delineation of the entire horoscope can one hope to make the proper judgement. However, in terms of judging a person's career status and fame, analysis of the 10th gives fine results.

The karakas, or indicators, of the 10th house are Saturn, the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter.

Ретроградный хозяин 10-го дома — человек будет нерешителен в выборе карьеры либо будет иметь проблемы с самореализацией в карьерном плане, но это не говорит о том, что его обязательно будут преследовать неудачи — иногда такие люди, наоборот, легко достигают карьерных высот и славы.
