The tenth house in a birth chart is considered to analyze profession, status, ambitions etc. The planet ruling the house of profession and the planets located in or influencing the house of profession are of great importance in determining the potential and standing of a person in professional career. For example, the presence of strong Mars being ruler of the house of profession is advantageous for pursuing professional career in the fields related to Security service, Police, Fire, Chemicals, Metals, Real Estate etc. as well as for enjoying stability in professional career.

Eleventh House
