You are very detail oriented and perfectionist at your work. You bring your higher education at your work place and gain the authority.

Your relation with father/boss may also have ego battles but at the same time father will have a huge role in your career. Here, person can work in Govt or Law related departments. At his work, he is supposed to take care of lots of details.

At the same time, it is creative mind. Although they want to be in authority, but they are not authoritative. They like to connect with their colleagues emotionally.

It shows that person is taking higher education in Mars related things, like Technology, Engineering and then utilizing it in his work to gain wealth in life. But Mars remains a malefic planet. Here, Mars is in 10th house of work environment in not a friendly sign. So, this shows that you may become kind of bully at your work place and try to dominate others. You may be too much attached with your belief system and you may feel that those colleagues who don't agree with your beliefs should be dominated. At the same time, Mars in 10th house gives an immense will-power to rise in career at any cost.

Here person takes higher education and utilize it in his work to motivate and guide others. These people may also be interested in occult related education and guide others through counselling in career. Their counselling and motivation always have army like impact. They can be great coaches and mentors. Aggression of Mars remains here but they are able to utilize it constructively. As Sagittarius also represents Law, these people can be forceful Lawyers too.
Mercury also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Libra Ascendant -

As Virgo is sign of conflicts and falls in 9th house of higher education, these people take higher education in matters of Law & Resolving Disputes and then utilize it in their career. So, here it can be a Lawyer or Relationship Adviser or simple Counselor at work who is trying to bring 2 warring parties at peace, as Libra is sign of Peace and Diplomacy. They can be diplomats and spokesman for Govt too.
Venus also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant -
If it is Virgo Ascendant, Venus rules 9th & 2nd house and sits in 10th house in Gemini sign. As Taurus is sign of Wealth & Assets and its lord is in 10th house of Career, it shows that someone taking higher education in fields of Finance & Commerce and then utilizing it in his career. So, we can see someone working in Finance or Commerce Field. Normally, Venus in 10th house is read as Career in Media but houses related to Media should be activated. As 2nd house of Wealth and Taurus sign are involved, I am of the view it s more a finance/commerce/wealth related career.
Aquarius Ascendant -
If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 10th house in Scorpio. This shows someone who utilizes his education in helping people going through turmoil in life. As Venus also represents Service/Devotion, this shows a person who is in service of those who are facing chaotic situations and transformations in life. These people serve in most turbulent situation. As Venus is in Scorpio, their own love/relation life is not smooth and they go through few chaotic relations before they finally settle in life. For both positions of Venus, a guy may find his wife at his work place.
Jupiter also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aries Ascendant -
If it is Aries Ascendant, Jupiter rules 9th & 12th house and sits in 10th house in Capricorn Sign, where it is debilitated. If Jupiter is nearby its debilitation degree, it actually shows that your beliefs and higher religious knowledge can actually become obstacle in your career. It is like a situation where you are brought-up with a view/belief that people of X religion/community are Bad and it so happened that when you went to your work, most of your colleagues are of X community only. Now, your beliefs are real obstacle at your work and it may ruin your career. If Jupiter is in Sravana Nakshatra, things can be little better and they can work as good lawyers and counselors.
Cancer Ascendant -
If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 10th house in Aries. Again, there is an energy exchange between Jupiter and Mars. So, it shows someone who uses his higher education for motivating and encouraging people. As Jupiter rules house of litigation and law, it certainly shows a lawyer or judge. This gives a real good career as person will be regarded as Guru or man of wisdom in society and people will come to him for advice. This time, a girl might find her Husband at work place.
Saturn also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 9th house lord, Saturn in 10th house (for Gemini/Taurus Ascendants respectively) surely indicates person had a distant relation with father, for various reasons. It shows someone reaching authoritative position in life only after sheer hard work and dedication. Nothing comes easy in life where Saturn is placed. It shows person had real struggle with any authority figure in life. Even a watchman will show him attitude when time is wrong. This shows someone making a career in Law or Govt Administration. They can also become a Judge but all good things related with Saturn comes when they are in their 30s. Before that it is only a struggle to find out why everyone around them has so much attitude over their authority? In marriage matters, the marriage should be delayed till 30s at least. Any relation before that will end up as burden and responsibility. Married life in true meanings start after mid 30s. Till then, marriage is more of a restrictive relation and responsibility.
If Rahu is 9th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 10th house in Pisces then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Pisces in 10th house will transform Rahu as Jupiter as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Pisces is the only placement where demon Rahu become a deity as Pisces is sign of Spirituality. They can be seen as highly spiritual person by society. As Rahu also rules 9th house of higher learning, they are bound to follow a spiritual career. They will have unusual beliefs, i.e. they may not follow organized religious setup. They will have rebellious views regarding different religions. At times, they will be controversial too but they are more misunderstood then controversial. Rahu in 10th house gives an unusual relation with Father.
Likewise, If Ketu is 9th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 10th house in Sagittarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here person/spouse won't be willing to work under any authority or Govt. Working in job setup is like worst dream for them. They are better of working for own. Relationship with Father is not to talk about. Either they are physically separated from Father or they never find that mental connect with him. It is better for these people to either work for themselves and be their own authority or follow a spiritual career. They are the last people who are looking for any authority over any other. Another position where a person can have unusual religious views and may not even follow any religion at all.
