Man takes birth. The struggle for existence begins since then. Fate and destiny bring him face to face with his Karmas. Astrology would make us believe that one’s past Karmas as well as present Karmas conjoin to shape man’s Karmakshetra. The stage when the Karmas begin to manifest in rewards can be tentatively called that portion of one’s life when service begins, or a shop is opened. Various careers await everybody. In accordance with qualifications and experience, one enters the professional field. In the Hindu way of life, there are the famous sixteen Samskaras through which one human life passes. Unfortunately, going to workplace is not one of those sixteen Samskaras. All in all, the 12 houses of the horoscope reserves the tenth house for one’s professional life, from where we delineate the multifarious facets of a career.Strictly speaking, in the long-drawn struggle in every man’s life span is the most trying and demanding phase is his capability to earn money. And money comes by toiling. Every activity performed – be it a job, a contract, a shop- results in reward of money. Therefore, predicting about one’s profession is quite a tricky affair. For the time being if it is taken as granted that profession is another name for ‘toil’, then necessarily there is element of Martian character creeping in. For good reasons, we can ruminate that 10th House in the Kaal Purush Kundli is the exalted Rashi of Mars, from where it aspects the Lagna and the 4th House, as also the 5th House. Since Jupiter occupies 4th House being in its exaltation, Rashi and Jupiter is 9th lord, the link between 1st, 5th and 9th houses gets established. The grand scheme of the Creator goes a little further also. The 5th Lord Sun occupies, Lagna being its exaltation sign, which Mars aspects. These three are the Dharma houses. Performing our Karma is nothing but our Dharma.
In delineating profession, we have to scrutinize Rashi Chart, Navamsha and the Dashamsha.
A- Rashi chart
• Look for Lagna and its Lord.
• Examine 10th from Lagna, the Moon and the Sun.
• See 10th from Arudha Lagna also.
• Strength/weakness of dispositor of Rashi 10th Lord be seen.
B- Navamsha Chart
• 10th House,10th Lord from Navamsha Lagna.
• 10th House, 10th Lord from Karkamsha Lagna.
• whether 10th Lord of Rashi in friendly/enemy Navamsha.
C- Dashamsha Chart
• 10th House and its Lord.
• Position of 10th Lord of D/1 in D/10 is also important.
• It ensures good career, if in exaltation, own sign.
• Lagna and location of its Lord also ensures good career.
If a common planet emerges from A,B,C above or two planets may have connections with each other in Rashi chart and having relationship through their Nakshatras, one is able to pinpoint the planet which is going to influence the career profile of the native.
Gains through Yogas
Parashari System : Wealth giving Yogas play an important part in getting gains through profession. If planets connected with these Yogas happen to be present at the start, or middle of profession, one can get a boost in the career.
Jaimini system : AK, AmK, PK, DK and 5th Lords are the planets that are givers of gains. Any two, or more out of five, if aspecting Chara Dasha, MP/AD shall definitely give gains through profession. While examining the first salary drawn, following rules are to be seen:
Amk should influence MP/AD, or be in 10th/11th from them.
Indu Lagna/Lagnesh should influence MP/AD, or be in 10th/11th from them.
AmK in transit is either influencing MP/AD, or is in 10th/11th from them.
Sat and Jup in transit show a connection with 10th House, or 10th Lord from Lagna.
Dashas and Transit
Dasha of Lagna Lord/10th Lord/exalted planets shall give gains.
If benefic Dashas succeed one after the other at prime time, one is poised to make spectacular gains.
Dasha of Lagna Nakshatra Lord always gives gains in MP/AD.
Dashas of Yogda planets of first order are very beneficial for a boost in the profession.
Yogda planet is one which aspects by Jaimini method Lagnas of D/1, D/3 and D/9 charts.
Dashas of Yogi Planets always give good results (Yogi planet is calculated by adding longitudes of Sun and Moon and a constant of 3Rashi-3 degree-20 Minutes. The star Lord of the resultant is known as Yogi Planet.
Transit of Saturn and Jupiter should have a positive aspect of the planet that had emerged as a profession Lord of the native or with 10th House, or 10th Lord.
If Bindus in 5th House are less than those in 10th House, one enjoys the career, because 10th House is 6th from 5th House.
If 11th House has more Bindus than 10th house, it is a good omen for better career, because it suggests that gains are more than the effort
In order to understand the above mentioned principles chart of a female native is given below for delineation of profession. DOB 15-10-1984 at 12.33Hours. Lat 28N26 Long 77E19.

Dasha system: Native is likely to pass out in Rahu-Moon and Rahu-Mars periods ( 1/2005 to 8/2007). Since Rahu and Moon both are exalted, they will most likely assist the native in clearing the MCA in 4/2007. Soon after the native clears the MCA, a job placement may be awaiting in the wings, because the period shall be Rahu-Mars (7/2006 to 8/2007). Two factors are likely to trigger this event:
(a) Rahu is 6th lord, which represents service and in Nakshatra of Sun (9th lord) and aspecting 10th and 2nd houses.

Jaimini’s Principals and Applications
In order to work out first salary income of the native, following steps should be studied (as already pointed out in this essay) :
• Moon the AmK should influence MP/AD or be in 10th or 11th from them. The Chara Dasha of Virgo runs from 10/1998 to 10/2009, while the AD of Gemini operates from 2/2006 to 1/2007, thereafter Cancer takes over wef 1/2007 to 12/2007. Moon misses to influence the Virgo Rashi but definitely does so in the case of Cancer, which it aspects and is 11th from it.
• Indu Lagna Scorpio aspects Lord of Virgo (Mercury) as well as Cancer – the AD Lord. Indu Lagnesh Mars aspects Virgo – the MP Rashi and 10th from it.
• Out of 5 forceful stations which matter, AK – AMK – PK -DK and 5th Lord, 3 are aspecting MP Virgo and majority aspect the AD of Gemini and Cancer.
• AmK in transit, i.e. Moon, shall always influence MP of Virgo and the AD Rashis, since it is a fast moving planet.
• The transit of major planets Saturn and Jupiter is, however, not so clear in aspecting the 10th House, or the 10th Lord, although the transit of Jupiter on 28th Aug 2004 in Virgo is positing of Jupiter in 10th House itself.
• AK (Sun) PK(Jupiter)and 5th lord (Mars) are all aspecting each other from powerful positions, thus making a grand Rajyoga. This combination is relevant not only in the MP of Virgo, but shall also continue to dominate in the MP of Sagittarius.
