Twelfth House Lord in Tenth House
12th house lord sitting in 10th house.
First of all, let's see what 10th house represent -
10th house represents Government, Father, Authority, Fame, Work Environment etc. Here, Authority should not be understood in literal sense, like someone got a Government job or became a Manager or CEO of a Firm. Here Authority means doing any work with complete perfection and your opinion matters when comes to making any decision related to that work, so even a good Hacker can be a person of authority as he is master of that particular work. 10th house is one of the houses normally checked for Career/Work/Duty in Life.
One thing to always keep in mind with 12th house is that it basically remains the house of losses. So, whichever planet goes in 12th house, even exalted, is in the bucket of losses. Now, to gain out of any such planet, you need to put double effort in things related with that planet.
What does it mean to have 12th house lord in 10th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 12th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 10th house of horoscope.
What is the impact of having 12th house lord in 10th house?
This position's basic interpretation is that person's career will get influenced by Foreign Lands/Companies/Things.Environment. So, in present day and age, it shows someone working in MNCs etc. But besides that it shows someone's work environment is Foreign/Unknown. It also shows someone in a very spiritual career. It can also give Career in Medicine or Jails as security person. It shows someone may have to work in isolation like some research work etc. If malefic planet's in wrong dignity are involved then it shows that losses may come to Career or Father. Overall, this shows a very foreign/unknown and unusual work environment and person will only achieve success when he gets such a work environment.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 10th house lord as 12th house lord is going in 10th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
How different planets will behave differently as 12th Lord in 10th house?
Suppose it is a Virgo Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 12th house with Leo sign and sits in the 10th house in the sign of Gemini. This shows a person who gains confidence and ego in life through reaching in an authoritative position in Govt. Sun receives directional strength in 10th house, hence it can give excellent Career in Govt or in Authoritative Position. As Sun is in Gemini, it shows work environment would require Communication or Travelling related work. But as Sun burns things too, here it burns the relation with Father. It means person may either have distant relation with Father due to various reasons or they may have ego battles between them. Overall, a good position for Career in Authority.
So it is Leo Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 12th house with Cancer sign and sits in 10th house in Taurus, where it is exalted. As Moon is all about nourishment and taking care of people, rules the 12th house of hospitals and sits exalted in 10th house of Career, it shows that someone may be in Medical or Health Care industry. As Moon is exalted, it shows person is emotionally attached with parents. Mother will forever be a great support. Mother may be in similar career. Alternatively, it can also give a good career in Teaching as Teaching also requires us to nourish and take care of people.
Mars can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Taurus Ascendant -
So if it is Taurus Ascendant, Mars rules 12th & 7th house and sits in 10th house in Aquarius sign. This shows a person who is very aggressive and dominating in getting an authoritative position in Career. As Aquarius is sign of Large Organization, Mars here gives good position in technical field. Additionally, it shows someone in Army or Jail Staffs and works for the peace and higher cause for Humanity. At the same time, as Mars is a natural malefic planet, it gives arguments and stress with Father or Boss at work. It can give good real-estate benefits too as Mars is powerful in 10th house and aspects the 4th house of real-estate.
Sagittarius Ascendant -
Now if it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 10th house in Virgo sign. As Virgo is sign of Healing, this shows a person who is in health care. Alternatively, a good career in Foreign Companies in field of Technology as Mars and Mercury are exchanging energy. They may have a harsh or rude speech. They may be brutal in giving their opinions, which may hurt their relations with Father or at work place. So, they may take care of this habit to strengthen their career.
Mercury also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant -
If it is Cancer Ascendant, Mercury rules 12th & 3rd houses and sits in 10th house in Aries. This shows someone in Career related with Communication or Counselling. They can be good authors or speakers. Their work may require them to travel a lot as Mercury rules 3rd house of travelling too. It is better if they pursue a Career related to their skills or hobbies. They will always assert their individuality through their Communications. It means the way they communicate can be very firm, strong and assertive. Again, person needs to be careful that it doesn't become harsh or brutal communications.
Libra Ascendant -
If it is Libra Ascendant, then Mercury rules 9th and 12th house and sits in 10th house in Cancer. This is another position which can give a career in health care as Virgo and Cancer both signs are related to healing and health-care. As Mercury is a natural counselor, it shows someone takes care of people through counselling. Another thing is that Mercury also rules 9th house of Religion and Higher Learning, so they can be good Teachers or Counselors in field of Philosophy, Religion or Spiritual matters.
Venus also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Gemini Ascendant -
If it is Gemini Ascendant, Venus rules 12th & 5th house and sits in 10th house in Pisces sign, where it is exalted. This is a strong placement for someone in Creative Career like Movies, Arts, Media etc as Venus not only rules 12th house of hidden talents but it also rules 5th house of Creativity and it sits exalted in 10th house of Career. So, any Career in Creative Field is highly recommended for them. A routine job oriented Career will be like punishment for them if they are under Venus MD. This shows a beautiful relation with Colleagues. This also shows marrying someone you found in work environment. For a guy, wife is from Foreign Lands and he meets her through his work.
Scorpio Ascendant -
If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Venus rules 7th & 12th house and sits in 10th house in Leo. As Leo is sign of Creativity and Venus also rules the 7th house of Other People/Masses, this is another position where person must follow his creative pursuits as Career. As Venus is Wealth too, it shows that person will get wealth from his creative pursuits. Any creative work in field of Arts and Media where they can connect with other people is good for them. Similar results for relationship as above. Venus in Leo is surely a person who loves to be Celebrity and live a lavish life and in 10th house, person gets all the opportunity to get such a life.
Jupiter also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant -
If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Jupiter rules 12th & 3rd house and sits in 10th house in Libra Sign. This shows a Guru at work. As Jupiter rules 12th house of Spirituality and 3rd house of Counselling/Teaching, it certainly shows someone who is seen as Guru or Teacher in Society. Even if they don't follow a Spiritual Career, still people at their work place will always ask for their advice. It is better for them to serve society through their religious or spiritual services. As Jupiter expands things, here Jupiter will expand the benefits of Career with time. Alternatively, they can reach into high authority position in Foreign Companies or MNCs. This time a girl will find her husband at her work place.
Aries Ascendant -
If it is Aries Ascendant, Jupiter rules 9th & 12th house and sits in 10th house in Capricorn, where it is debilitated. If Jupiter is near the exact degree of debilitation, it shows someone may be acting as a Guru or Sage to people in Society but he may not be. As Jupiter rules 9th house of Religion & 12th house of Spirituality and sits debilitated in 10th house, it shows someone as a Fake Guru who cheats the people and rob their wealth. It shows a person who has low morale. If Jupiter is far away from debilitation degree, it shows someone working as Teacher in field of Philosophy and Spirituality and earns wealth from there. A girl may get her future husband from work place but delayed marriage is recommended.
Saturn also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Aquarius/Capricorn) as 12th house lord, Saturn in 10th house (for Pisces/Aquarius 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 or in high position at Corporate. Person himself and/or father can be a strict disciplinarian. So, colleagues wont like them much. 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? Earning grows slowly and steadily in life. 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 12th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 10th house in Sagittarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Sagittarius 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 Sagittarius in 10th house basically surely shows that person can be working in Foreign Country, Foreign Companies or with Foreign People. It can also show a really unique and unusual career. As Sagittarius is sign of Law and 10th house relates to Govt, it is a perfect position of someone working in Govt department but in Foreign Lands or someone practicing in International Law. It gives an unusual relation with Father. It also shows someone may have a very unusual religious beliefs. They can be working as Religious Teachers or Gurus too. At times, they may create their own religion.
Likewise, If Ketu is 12th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 10th house in Virgo 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 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. They want to be far away from any conflict or dispute at work. They are almost blind about their work place. It means they may not even protest if any injustice is done to them in their promotions and all.
