However, it is still important to have atleast one benefic planet aspecting the 10th house. Having no aspect of benefic planets on the 10th house, the native may have to face lots of challenges and struggles in his career.
- If the lord of the 10th house is weak and has no aspect of benefic planets upon it, in this case also, the native faces problems in his career. It will be very hard for the native to get success in his life.
- If the lord of the 10th house is in debilitated condition, even in this case, the native faces lots of obstacles, problems and challenges in his career. He may have to work at a job, he may not like or wished for.
These were all the Vedic astrology sutras about the 10th house. Sure there are lots more and the list goes on and on. The key thing to remember here is if the 10th house is weak, does that mean, a person will never achieve success. This is where the role of 9th house and the 3rd house comes into play.
Sure, 10th house when it is weak, many times for such natives, it can take a lot of time to gain success in life. For someone, who has a strong 10th house, he may easily find a job and experience growth and progress while for someone with a weak 10th house, he may be jumping from one job to another.
Here, along with the 10th house, it is important to see the condition of the 9th house and 3rd house. The 9th house is the house of luck and fortune and the 3rd house is the house of hardwork. If the 3rd house is strong, the native even will less opportunities or support will still be successful in his life and career. This is because there is nothing stronger than hardwork and determination. And there is no Raj Yoga that can compete with the blessings of Hardwork.
Even Maha Lakshmi, who is the Goddess of Wealth states that “She is obliged to give wealth, prosperity and success those who simply work hard”.
Lastly, the 9th house is also very important and if the 9th house is strong, the native gains lots of opportunities in his life. So, don’t be disappointed if your 10th house weak or the 10th house lord is weak. It doesn’t mean you will become unsuccessful. I have seen many people who have the weakest 10th house and still have had a great prosperous career. This is because the 10th house is ruled by Saturn and Karak planets for the 10th house are Saturn, Mars, Sun and Jupiter. Even if these four planets are strong in your birth chart, you will gain lots of success despite facing lots of challenges and obstacles.
