Chapter 32 –House of Profession

     The tenth house from the ascendant is called house of profession, prestige, and political success. These are the three main things we can know from this house.
 
     If the lord of the tenth house is exalted or in own house or in friendly house then the above mentioned things would be favorable to the native. If debilitated or in enemy house then would get unfavorable results.
 
     In north Indian charts, the house next to the ninth house in anti-clockwise direction is tenth house. From the natural order of zodiac sign marked in the ascendant, we can derive which zodiac sign is tenth house. For example if the ascendant is marked with 4 then the tenth house would be Aries.
