How to read Dashamsha Chart (D-10)

How to read Dashamsha Chart (D-10)

This is a sequel to my earlier article on Profession.People are frequently asking me to look into their chart for their career graph, like promotion, increment, transfers etc. This is my endeavour to simplify the matter so that any individual can easily decode D-10.But this does not mean that you get all the details of your profession by D-10 alone and therefore you may still have to consult your astrologer for an in depth analysis.

The 10th House represents the ‘Karma’ or ‘Profession. Planets in 10th House, planets aspecting 10th House, 10th Lord and planets aspecting it and the Navamsha dispositor of 10th Lord decide your profession. The nature and Tatwa of the sign of 10th House also gives us a clue about profession. Karakamsha (Navamsha of Atma Karaka) also gives us some information. Similarly, understanding the nature of planets which become significator for profession and the planets exerting influence on these planets is necessary.

Dasamsha or one-tenth part of the Rashi Kundali represents the Profession and is to be used for detailed analysis while profiling one’s career. After you have extracted all the information from Rashi chart then only proceed to D-10. What I have discussed is general in nature and I have tried to keep the content simple to understand by budding astrologers.

 Important: D-10 is to be analysed as chart by itself

 Following are the likely results of the analysis of D-10.

  •  Lagna Lord in Own House / exalted – Good job.
  • Karakas for profession, namely Sun, Saturn and Mercury, if any one of them in own house – Good job.
  • Sun in own house / exalted – good job and will become a good leader in politics.
  • Sun or Saturn in Upachaya (3,6,10 and 11) – Good job
  • 9th Lord in 9th House – Success in profession.
  • Venus alone in 8th House – Lucky and excellent success in profession.
  • 7th Lord of D-1 /D-10 in own house or exalted – Very good progress in profession.
  • 10th Lord of D-1 / D-10 in own house / exalted –Very good job.
  • Lagna Lord, 6th Lord and 9th Lord of D-1 / D10 Lords, if any one of them is debilitated –No success in profession.
  • Lagna Lord in 9th / 9th Lord exalted – Business (Self employed)
  • If Capricorn has malefics – Indulge in bad / evil /illegal profession.
  • Rahu in Lagna – Temporary jobs / frequent transfers/ bad prospects in profession
  • If Lagna has any two planets, namely, Moon, Mercury, Jupiter or Venus – will become Jyothishis, Veda Pundits or Sanskrit scholars.
  • From  Moon Lagna, if 6th  and 9th house has association with Sun and Saturn –Quarrel with superiors and hence uncertainty in profession
  • 10th House / 10th Lord associated with Saturn – Unemployment / dismissal from service.
  • 10th House / Lord or Karakas like, Saturn, Sun are associated with a debilitated planet – Greedy, infamy and goes to jail on bribery charges.
  • D-1 Yogakaraka in Lagna or aspecting Lagna – Raja yoga in profession.
  • If 2nd, 9th, 10th and 11th Lord are together – Will reach top in business.
  • During Dasha / Bhukti of Benefic planets in Kendra – Promotion and success.
  • During Dasha / Bhukti of Malefics planets in Kendra- Setback, demotion, disgrace etc.
  • During Dasha / Bhukti of planets in Trikona – assistance / help from friends and well wishers
  • During Dasha / Bhukti of planets which are powerless, malefic or debilitatated occupying 10th House – Lot of difficulties in profession.

Author’s Note

This is as simple as it can get. Everyone is interested to know their future profession and this is also a guide to their education or specialisation in their college studies. This should be used as a guide only and do not try to take decisions based only on this. As stated earlier, please consult your astrologer for detailed analysis.
