5 things career astrology can help you for career issues.

career prediction

An individual goes through various stages in life. As soon as an individual finishes his education, the next step is to settle in career. To know more about career astrology, he would visit the Vedic astrologer with his birth horoscope.  

It should be known that in the career horoscope, the main House studied by the astrologer is the 10th House. This House is known as the House of career. The career prediction can give us a lot of information related to career and its choice.  Some of the information we can get from career astrology can be studied.

  1. Job or Business The first thing individual would want to know if he can start his own business. For this we need to have most of the planets concentrated around the 10th House which is the House of career. Also, as the 7th House is the House of partnership should be more than the 6th House. Presence of strong Dhana Yoga and Raja Yoga in the career prediction is necessary. As the 3rd House is the House of initiative, we need to check that if there is any relation of the 3rd House and its Lord with the 10th House and 9th House or 9th Lord and Mars, then surely the person can start his own business. The Ascendant Lord in 9th House makes a person independent which is one of the traits needed of a business. Also if Saturn is in the 3rd House, it gives an individual business as this House is the House of Initiative and Courage and Saturn is a malefic planet. The 11th House is the House of financial gains multiple planets should be placed in the 11th House. The main traits required by an individual to start his own business are strength, courage, initiative and independence and right placement of planets in the right Houses.


  1. Timing of Job Once an individual understands that he is not able to do well in business, the next thing he would turn to is to know when he expects to land the right job. The main factors to be studied are 
  1. The position of the 10th House Lord in the career horoscope.
  2. The strength and nature of the 10th House Lord should be ascertained.
  3. The planets that are positioned in the 10th House should be studied.
  4. The transit of the 10th House Lord should also be studied.
  5. If the present running Mahadasha and Antardasha are favourable for the individual to get a job.
  6. The 10th House is also known as Kendra. If the 10th House Lord is placed in Trikona or there is any sort of connection with the ascendant Lord the individual gets the desired job.
  7. Job timing can be ascertained by studying the transit of the 10th House Lord. If there is a connection with the ascendant and it’s Lord with an aspect of strong Saturn, there are greater chances of getting job especially if there is support from the Mahadasha or Antardasha.


  1. Change of Job An individual always looks for better job prospects to have a better lifestyle so again he takes help of astrologer to know when he would get a change of job. He may also be dissatisfied in his present job and look for another job.


  • 9th house: As 9th house is the 12th House from the 10th, the individual could lose his job and thus this House and its Lord are studied while looking for change of job.
  • 5th house: 5th house is 8th House from the 10th and this indicates change in career, so planets in 8th house or its lord play an important role at the time of checking horoscope for change of job.

Mahadasha and antardasha:

If a person is undergoing dasha of 5th and 9th house, it means the person has a change in job. If a person is undergoing only through the dasha of 9th house, it means there is a loss of job with difficulty getting another one.

Transits of planet:

If the transits of planet with long duration (like Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu-Ketu) have a direct impact on the 5th and 9th house then also it is indicates change of job.

If the 10th lord transits through 8th house then also there is a change in career but how much fruitful the change of career will be dependent on the sign. For example if Saturn transits through Aries in the 8th house then the individual may get a job but he may not be able to continue the job for a long time.

  1. Settle abroad The younger generation has a craze of getting a job overseas. Due to advance in technology and better education, the individual is attracted to the luxuries of life and the money they earn in foreign countries. But the fear of not getting a job abroad, takes the individual to get a Vedic astrologer to read their career horoscope for getting an overseas career.


Some of the combinations in the career horoscope are required to judge if the individual is able to earn and settle in foreign countries

  • There should be some sort of connection between the 2nd house and 12th house usually by conjunction in a horoscope house.
  • Airy sign as ascendants like Gemini, Libra or Aquarius then it predicts air travel to foreign locations and re-settlement there.
  • Watery sign which are ascendants like Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces then also mostly there is relocation to foreign lands but the desired travel should be via water route for more success. Relocation would be near a sea shore or huge river.
  • 4th house should have favourable aspects possibly with tenth house which is the House of career or 12th house which tells us about foreign lands or 7th house which is the House business and partnerships.
  • A bad 4th house can also drive native away from homeland and settle on foreign shores but troubles follow him to the place of re-settlement.
  • If there is any sort of connection between lords of 1st house and 12th house then there could be re-settlement abroad.


  1. Remedies 

At times, the career prediction would not be favourable for job. Astrological remedies are there to appease the planets which bring difficulty getting a job.

  • Astrologically, it is said that Goddess Lakshmi resides at the tip of the fingers of our hand, Lord Vishnu resides at the base of our palm and Goddess Saraswati resides in the middle of our palm. So, in the morning when on glances at both their palms as soon as they wake up, they worship all the three deities and are blessed with a prosperous and successful career.

The following Mantra should be chanted while looking at your hands

“Karagre Vasate Lakshmi Kara Madhye Saraswati

Kara Mooletu Govinda Prabhate kar Darshanam”

  • Boiled rice should be given as an offering to crows on Saturdays. The raven represents the planet Saturn, which is the ruler of the profession in Astrology. 
  • Jaggery is added to water in a copper vessel and offered to the Sun in the morning within an hour of dawn. The Mantra "Om Hreem Suryaaye Namaha" should be recited 11 times while offering the water.
  • The Gayatri Mantra and Mahamrityunjaya Mantra need to be recited daily for at least 31 times each.
  • Lord Ganesha is known as Vighna Vinaashak so his beej mantra "Om Gam Ganpataye Namaha" has to be recited to give benefit in case the person is facing problems in his career. 
  • 4 cloves have to be pierced into a lime and taken in your right hand and with complete devotion the mantra "Om Shree Hanumate Namaha" should be recited 21 times. After completion of the recitation, keep the lime in your purse. This helps your business grow and if you are in a job then you will find good opportunities. Suppose you are meeting a person for an important job, perform this remedy and then go, you will get success.
  • Suppose an individual is facing constant delays in job and career and not getting the desired promotions, one must make a small amount of sweets made out of jaggery and offer it in a flowing water body like the river.
