Career Astrology is probably one of the most difficult predictions to make regarding an individual’s professional direction. Great care must be taken while judging the profession of an individual. By reading one’s natal chart, predictions about the career, type of industry and the periods of career advancement can be made.
In Vedic Astrology, one can assess the career prospects by combining the influences of the key houses and planets. The 12 houses in a horoscope denote various facets of life of a person. Each house has its own importance when it comes to an individual’s career.
The first house or Lagna (ascendant) is the most important of all the houses in the birth chart to be studied in order to predict one’s career prospects. The first house epitomizes the persona of an individual and hence, the planet in this house of a natal chart can shape the career path. It is also important to consider the Lagnesh or the 1st house ruler in the horoscope. The positions of the luminaries — the Sun and the Moon — are also vital in deciding the core personalities, and finding the nature of job one wishes to pursue.
