Professional Significations of Planets

By Professor V.K. Choudhry

Depending upon the strength and nature of the primary determinant planets, their placement in the ascendant, the second house or the tenth house indicates that the native will rise in life primarily through his/her own efforts.  The Sun and the Moon in this position may bless the native with a good administrative job with a government organization.  Mars in the ascendant may make the native an entrepreneur or employed in the election department of a government organization.  Mercury makes the person an engineer, accountant or a successful leader depending upon other influences on such a Mercury.  Jupiter blesses the native with a management career in the fields of financial and legal consultancy.  Venus may bless the native with a career linked with arts, films, hotels, synthetic formulations and chemicals. Saturn in such a situation may make a person an industrialist.

The detailed significations ruled by various planets are as under:

The Sun is personified as king and physician and when strong denotes high administrative positions in government including political leadership, doctors in medicine, etc.  It governs bureaucrats, services with the state, bankers, politicians, contractors, chairmen of industrial establishments, etc.

The Moon is the queen of the planetary cabinet and enjoys status in administration by virtue of being the wife of the king. It does not have to strive to acquire status when strong in a nativity.  It governs the professions of hoteliers, public relations people, moneylenders, housekeepers, physicians, healers, business in food industry, etc.

Mars is personified as a commander-in-chief, denotes position in military and paramilitary forces, police, vocations employing fire and metals, engineering, chemicals, surgeons, dentists and executive posts. The nature of Mars is cruel, unrelenting, active and generous.  It also governs gangsters, manufacturers, executioners and project erectors.

Mercury rules analytical faculties, speech, sharp intellect, power of discrimination and confidence.  The nature is friendly.  Personified as a prince, thinker and knowledgeable in the field of mathematics, it denotes advisory roles, business, engineering and related fields, research scholars, communicators, editors, authors, accountants, lawyers, experts in analytical works, software engineers, auditors, intellectuals, transporters, publishers, salesmen, traders, etc.

Venus is personified as a minister, preceptor of demons, lover, knowledge of life saving drugs and arts. It signifies vocations in the field of financial administration, cinema, theatre, painting, music, designing, architecture, interior decoration, entertainment, modelling, advertising and business connected with its significations, i.e. legal, teaching, hotels, medicines, fashion and luxurious items.  The nature of Venus is generous and benevolent.

Saturn is personified as a statesman and leader of low castes and signifies jobs requiring hard work with less remuneration, leadership of workers, trying to acquire positions in government services, dealing with labor, labor oriented industry, routine workers, labor oriented jobs, engineers etc. The nature of Saturn is selfish and indolent.

KETU rules interest in occultism, religion, diversification and services to old and needy persons.

The impact of planets decreases or increases depending upon their weakness/affliction or strength and good influences on them in a particular nativity as also due to their placement in a particular house or in a particular sign.

PROFESSIONAL SIGNIFICATIONS OF THE SIGNS

The placement of various signs in the houses indicates professional affairs and the placement of the planets becoming primary determinants of professional affairs largely influences the professional prospects of a native. The various signs, when falling in the ascendant, govern the indications as below:

ARIES The inherent qualities of the Aries sign makes the native affluent and authoritative. When the sign Aries falls in the ascendant, the influence of Saturn turns them toward construction and make them entrepreneurs. They earn a lot of wealth by persistent efforts.  A strong Sun or the Moon or Mars blesses the Arians with executive posts.

TAURUS: Taurus is an earthy sign ruled by the planet of pleasures, Venus.  Taurus born people are generally pleasure seekers and are involved in material pursuits. Enjoying to the fullest extent is the aim of their life.  They are analytical in approach, as the fifth house is ruled by Mercury.  The fourth house, ruling inclinations, ruled by the planet Sun, determines their approach in life.  The sign Aquarius falling in the tenth house makes these people technical and if the other planets are strong, the native may pursue an engineering course.

GEMINI: Gemini born people are persuasive and communicative in their approach.  There are less hurdles and setbacks in life. Unless the Sun forms close relationship with the ascendant, the tenth house, second house or fourth house their role in life is generally average and insignificant.  The sign Gemini is ruled by Mercury.  It is a talkative, positive, airy and barren sign.  It makes the man ambitious with imaginative ideas.  With good planetary placements, the Geminians are in the state services, marketing, communications, etc.

CANCER: Cancerians are of volatile nature.  There are two reasons for this. Firstly, the Moon becomes weak quite often either in pakshabala or by going to inauspicious places from the ascendant, being debilitated or combust or joining the mooltrikona signs ruled by weak planets.  Secondly, the house of initiatives is ruled by Mercury that also remains weak, quite often. In case Mercury is weak and/or afflicted, the initiatives of the native do not produce results resulting in change of ventures. Cancerians are imaginative, peace loving, good hosts, moody and humorous.  They are generous, helpful, emotional, dependable and are full of concern both for self and others.  The sign being royal, there are many happy events in their lives.  They are very sensitive and restless. Cancerians are administrators, public relations managers, hoteliers, housekeepers, physicians, restaurant owners, etc.

LEO: Leos are rulers, extrovert, good organizers, patient listeners, jealous, decisive, art lovers, generous, authoritative and anxious to retain and expand their domain.  As the weakness prone planet, Mercury, rules their second house ruling kingdom, they are constantly worried about the stability of their status and they are always on the move to solve problems. They are receptive to the ideas of others but provide leadership as per their own conviction.  They are anxious to oblige others by favors so that they are recognized by others as royal.  They intend to punish the guilty and rarely apologize to those who do not surrender completely. A king needs the help of all specialists and cannot afford to be ease loving.  Leo born people are very alert and very fast in assimilating diversified activities and problems.  Mercury, the planet of analytical faculties, rules the second house representing concentration. The initiatives of a king are for financial prosperity and enjoyment ruled by Venus, whose mooltrikona sign falls in the third house. Leos are administrators, leaders, corporators, contractors and politicians.

VIRGO: Their analytical nature makes Virgo born thorough and critical leading to perfection.  They are realistic in their approach, weigh pros and cons carefully and are appreciative of the events liked by them.  They are practical, fully composed and sometimes perceived to be fussy.  All these depend upon the strength and placement of Mercury in the natal chart.  They are generally not content because reality is quite different from idealism.  The usual weakness of Mercury makes Virgos feel insecure in life.  They are generally worriers.  Virgos are mostly truthful, sincere and dependable.  The reason is that the house ruling character and inclinations has the mooltrikona sign of the planet, Jupiter.  The oft-existent weakness of Mercury makes Virgos nervous.  The role played by functional malefics in making Virgos nervous is very significant. Virgos are engineers, accountants, writers, traders, etc.

LIBRA: Its positive characteristics make the person a contributor in place of being only a consumer.  Its airy characteristic makes the person a thinker.  Its semi-fruitful characteristic blesses the native with affluence and resourcefulness in life.  The sign Libra signifies sense of justice, clarity, strong will power, optimism and high sensitivity.  Librans are intelligent, restless, good-natured and have pleasant disposition.  They want to win others with love, and hate violence.  They have keen interest in performing and fine arts.  The weakness and affliction to Venus can make them depressed, stubborn, argumentative and annoying persons.  Librans are cautious, confident, interested in learning, gentle, artistic and are able to get out of difficult situation.  Librans are actors, musicians, managers, financial and legal advisors, teachers, hoteliers, doctors, etc., depending upon the influence of other planets.

SCORPIO: The sign Scorpio is ruled by the planet Mars.  Scorpions are egocentric, straightforward, determined, disciplined and fearless.  They are tough and they rarely smile.  They are highly active and generally keep good health.  Scorpions are generally of short stature and well built. Scorpions are administrators, politicians, advocates, surgeons, officers in the armed forces and traders in metals and chemicals.

SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius rising in the ascendant gives magnificent personality and such persons are best suited for training or advisory roles due to their pleasant presence.  The body description is modified if Jupiter is weak in the nativity and Jupiter and/or the ascendant are closely associated by malefic planets.  Sagittarians believe in hard work and God.  They are humorous and generally maintain composure.  They are clever, progressive, generous, organized, ambitious and successful when Mars and Mercury are strong in the nativity.  They are straightforward, vocal and extroverts.  They are best suited for training jobs and advisory roles in the fields of law and finance.

CAPRICORN: Capricornians are social as Venus rules their tenth house.  They are conservative, selfish and selective in approach.  They are secretive, pensive, organized, proud and fastidious.  They are vigilant and tactful.  They have compromising nature in order to achieve leadership. Depending upon the strength of the planets, Capricornians are born to rich and well placed parents, get good inheritance, have pleasant temperament and are emotional in the matter of partnership.  The major stress area is the fluctuating status of the father and their own fortune as Mercury, the planet of fluctuations, rules the ninth house of Capricornians.  They long for leadership, political power, practice of law and business.  Their major pursuits in life include acquisition of assets, partnerships and social contacts for personal benefits and selfish ends.

AQUARIUS: Aquarius is a talkative, positive, human and airy sign and signifies characteristics like honesty, ideals and sensitiveness.  Depending upon the strength of Saturn in the nativity, Aquarians are very active, industrious, deliberative, leaders of non-affluent sections of society and courteous.  Weak Saturn makes Aquarians suspicious and lethargic.  They are comparatively more concerned about the ends in comparison to means.  They are invariably not content with their possessions. Aquarians are writers, thinkers, servants, leaders of non-affluent sections of society and industrialists depending upon the strength and good placement of the planets in the nativity.  As Saturn is a significator for longevity, its strong position in the chart blesses the native with long life.  They are traditional in their approach but can resort to even undesirable means to achieve their ends.

PISCES: Pisceans are restless and are always on the move.  They are generally devoted to duty, have strong moral values and are good advisors whenever Jupiter and/or Mercury are strong in the horoscope.  They are idealistic, generous, emotional and enthusiastic. As Jupiter rules the tenth house and Mars rules the second house, Pisceans enjoy good status in life in the professions of administration, training and development.  They are best suited for advisory roles in the fields of finance, commerce and law. The sign Cancer in their fifth house makes them highly sensitive and emotional.  The weak and afflicted placement of the Moon gives emotional setbacks in life.

THE PRIMARY DETERMINANTS

The lords of the tenth and the second houses, if containing mooltrikona signs, are considered as the primary determinants for analyzing the professional affairs. In case there is no mooltrikona sign in any of these houses, then the lord of the first house is considered the prime determinant. For various ascendants, the following planet(s) will become prime determinants for analyzing the professional affairs:-

Aries: Mars

Taurus: Saturn

Gemini: The Moon

Cancer: Mars and the Sun

Leo: Mercury

Virgo: Venus

Libra: The Moon

Scorpio: The Sun and Jupiter

Sagittarius: Mercury

Capricorn: Venus and Saturn

Aquarius: Saturn

Pisces: Jupiter and Mars

Besides the above prime determinant planets, the lord of the ascendant of dasamsa containing a mooltrikona sign becomes an additional primary determinant for profession.

THE SECONDARY DETERMINANTS

The planets closely influencing the tenth and the second houses or the ascendant, if there is no mooltrikona sign in the tenth and the second houses, or closely influencing the primary determinants by way of close aspects/conjunctions act as secondary determinants for analyzing the professional affairs.

The close influence of the lord of the third house on the houses ruling professional matters or the third house, itself, indicates business ventures.

The significations of planets fructify during their own main/sub-period as per their strength. The readers may please note the stress being laid on the strength of the planets. The weakness of the planets in a nativity is the very reason of existence of this divine science. It is but natural that a native may approach an astrologer in the hour of difficulty and thereafter he may like to utilize the services of this divine science without being faced with the problems but to avoid the incidence of problems as also to augment his ventures for optimum benefits. The real job is to find out the true strength of those planets which are apparently strong in the rasi chart of a nativity. As per Maharishi Parashara the weak planets of the natal chart do not acquire any strength in any of the Vargas. The weak natal planets, until and unless strengthened, fail to bestow good results even if they are in strength in the divisional charts or having maximum benefic bindus in Ashtakvarga.

In fact delineating anything from a natal chart requires application of the principles in a comprehensive manner. Most of the times, the significators may be overlapping and indicating more than one area of pursuit, while a person might have one of the areas as a hobby. Similarly, as brought out earlier, a planet signifies variety of occupations. For example (1) the Sun signifies administration, practice of medicine, politics, etc. (2) Venus signifies practice of life saving drugs, the business of artistic nature, engineering or luxury items, financial advisor's role, etc. (3) Mercury signifies dealing in writing, accountancy, analytical studies, application of law, designing work of engineering involving calculations, etc. (4) The Moon signifies love and care, house keeping, public relations, etc. (5) Mars signifies execution, commandership in the armed forces, initiative and entrepreneurship, etc. (6) Jupiter signifies practice of law, teaching, financial management, advisory roles, propagation of spirituality, Astrology, etc. (7) Saturn signifies participation in mass production involving large work force, low technology industry, leadership of labor/industrial workers, service, etc. (8) Rahu signifies diplomatic jobs, jobs requiring manipulations with facts, aviators, computer programmers, highly technical fields, professions involving juggling, involvement with the masses, involvement with occult or psychic knowledge, dealing in poisons and drugs. etc., and (9) Ketu signifies interest in occultism, spiritual initiation and development, natural healing methods and diets, religion and diversification, services for old and needy persons and rules chemists, pharmacists, priests, researchers and spiritual healers. What we have to see is which type of influence is more in operation and has to synchronize the same with the operating planetary periods. As a group, those planets which exert more influence indicate the choice or area of profession. The prominence, fame, wealth or notable contributions in various fields is the result of a group of strong planets congruent in nature. The group of Venus, Jupiter and Mercury may indicate the area of profession as advisory role in financial institutions or in financial matters, legal advice, or collectively legal and financial areas. The confluence of the Sun, the Moon, Mars, Jupiter, etc. as a group may indicate good positions in administration. The confluence of Venus, Saturn, Mercury and Mars may indicate a profession of engineering. The confluence of Mercury, Mars, Venus and the Sun may indicate a profession in the technology sectors. Further classification in the major field depends on the leading role of one of the significators. When the significators are weak or the main period of weak planets is in operation, the natives go in for routine jobs i.e. clerical or mechanics, sales representatives/assistants, etc. or merely work as helping hands. For entering into business the role of the third house and the Sun, Venus and Mercury is supreme as they provide planning, trading and organizing capabilities. Royal planets (the Sun and the Moon) and Mars, the planet of executive authority, under the benefic influence of Jupiter becoming significators of profession indicate involvement of political career. Rahu gives impetus to the efforts. However, success depends on the good placement of Rahu and neither it should be aspected by or related to the functional malefic planets nor it should be closely afflicting other planets in the natal chart. Ketu in its main/sub-periods often retards the growth. Persons with weak Mercury, which rules planning and analytical faculties, often end up with losses in business because of mainly two reasons i.e. (1) they depend on the wisdom of others; and (2) they take wrong decisions when they are under great mental pressures.

We also examine the strength of the primary and secondary determinants in dasamsa. If the concerned planets are in their sign of debilitation in dasamsa, they become weak for the professional matters even if they are placed strongly in the natal chart. During the sub-periods of the planets occupying their signs of debilitation in dasamsa, the native meets with obstructions, delays and setbacks in professional matters or incurs business losses. In view of this, while discussing the case studies, we have indicated the ascending sign of dasamsa and if some planet is in its sign of debilitation in dasamsa.

"How to Identify Professional  Field "

There are a number of factors which help us in arriving at a decision on this vital issue, viz. the nature of sign falling in the ascendant (lagna), tenth house governing profession, second house ruling the status, the eleventh house signifying income, and the ascendant of dasamsa (the divisional chart for analysis of professional matters) of a native.  These govern the magnitude of professional matters.  For example, the sign of a royal planet like the Sun, the Moon or affluent planets Venus, Jupiter, Mars, etc. indicate the degree of affluence of the profession of a native and the income, therefrom.

The strength of the lords of the above mentioned houses and the operating planetary periods hold the key to decipher the codes.  Similarly, understanding the nature of planets becoming significator for profession and the planets exerting influence on these planets is necessary.  The planets influencing the tenth house, the second house and/or the ascendant if there is no mooltrikona sign, both in the tenth and second houses, become the primary determinants of the professional matters.  The operating planetary periods between the age of 16 and 24 years become supplementary primary determinants of one's educational/professional pursuits.

The significations of planets fructify in their own sub-period as per their strength.  The readers may please note the stress being laid on the strength of the planets.  The weakness of the planets in a nativity is the very reason of existence of this divine science.  It is but natural that a native may approach an astrologer in the hour of difficulty to utilize the services of this divine science without being faced with problems but to ward-off the chances of problems as also to augment his ventures for optimum benefits.  The real trial of strength of planets, which are apparently strong in a nativity, is in the navamsa or dasamsa because the weak planets of the natal chart do not acquire any strength in any of the vargas.  Weak natal planets fail to bestow good results even if they are in strength in the divisional charts or have maximum benefic bindus in ashtakavarga.

Analysis of a natal chart requires application of the principles in a comprehensive manner as brought out elsewhere. Most of the time, the significators may overlap and indicate more than one area of pursuit, while a person might have one of the areas as a hobby.  Similarly, a planet signifies a variety of occupations.  For example:

(1)  The Sun signifies administration as also practice of medicine,

(2)  Venus signifies practice of life saving drugs, business of an artistic nature, engineering or luxury items, financial advisor's role, etc.

(3)  Mercury rules writing, accountancy, analytical studies, application of law, designing work of engineering involving calculations, etc.,

(4)  The Moon rules love and care, house keeping, public relations, etc.,

(5)  Mars signifies executioners, commanders in the armed forces, initiative and entrepreneurs,

(6)  Jupiter signifies practice of law, teaching, financial management, advisory roles, propagation of spirituality, etc.,

(7)  Saturn signifies participation in mass production involving large work force, low technology industry, leadership of labor/industrial workers, service, etc.

What we have to see is which type of influence(s) is(are) more in operation and have to synchronize the same with the operating planetary periods.  As a group, those planets which exert more influence indicate the choice or area of profession.  Prominence, fame, wealth or notable contributions in various fields is the result of a group of planets congruent in nature.  The group of Venus, Jupiter and Mercury may indicate the area of profession as advisory role in financial institutions or in financial matters, legal advice, or collectively legal and financial areas.  The confluence of the Sun, the Moon, Mars, Jupiter, etc. as a group may indicate good positions in administration.  The confluence of Venus, Saturn, Mercury and Mars may indicate the profession of engineering.  Further classification in the major field depends on the leading role of one of the significators.  When the planets/significators are weak or the dasa of weak planets is in operation, the natives go in for routine jobs i.e. clerical or mechanical, sales representatives/assistants, etc., or merely work as helping hands.  For starting business, the role of the lord of the third house, the planets placed in the third house, Mars, Venus and Mercury is supreme as they provide planning, trading and organizing capabilities.  The royal planets (the Sun and the Moon) and Mars, the planet of executive authority under the benefic influence of Jupiter becoming significators of profession indicate involvement of political career. Rahu gives impetus to the efforts.  However, success depends on the right placement of Rahu and it should not be aspected/related with malefics.  Ketu in its main/sub-periods quite often retards growth.  Persons with weak Mercury, which rules planning and analytical faculties, often end up with losses in business because of mainly two reasons:

(1) they depend on the wisdom of others; and

(2) they take wrong decisions when they are under great mental pressure.

ROLE OF THE FIFTH HOUSE

The fifth house rules learning.  The planets exert influence over the native with regard to their significations.  The Sun and Jupiter, if connected powerfully, turn the native towards spiritual advancement.  Mercury makes a man a research scholar and blesses the native with analytical powers resulting in fruitful contributions to the society by way of innovations/professional services.  Venus, when strong, gives inclinations for creativity and writing especially if being the lord of the fifth house it is placed in the third house ruling communications.  The Moon gives emotional attachment and pursuit of royal comforts.  Dreams are fulfilled if the significators are strong and the favorable planets operate at appropriate times in life.  The lord of the fifth house in the ascendant blesses the native with academic brilliance while its position in the third house blesses the native with innovative and creative faculties including writing.  The lord of the fifth house placed in the tenth house strongly and unafflicted indicates the professions of teaching, financial and legal consultancy, management consultancy, engineering consultancy, banking, gains in speculation, etc.

THE ROLE OF THE LORD OF THE SEVENTH HOUSE

The seventh house rules business partners and business with distant places/foreign trade.

THE ROLE OF THE LORD OF THE ELEVENTH HOUSE

The role of the lord of the eleventh house, containing a mooltrikona sign, is also very important.  This will indicate the areas that would be explored by the native for earning and fulfillment of his desires.  If the lord of the eleventh house goes to the ascendant, the native will strive and earn a lot of money through self-effort.  The position of the lord of the eleventh house in the second house indicates that the native shall earn a good status and friendship with highly placed persons.  He will earn wealth through the help of his highly placed friends and his status.  The position of the lord of the eleventh house in the third house indicates income through business enterprise in the fields of communication, transportation, publication, trading, etc. The position of the lord of the eleventh house in the fourth house indicates earnings through the application of parental assets in the business of real estate, automobiles, educational institutions, furnishings, hotels, teaching, etc.  The position  of the lord of the eleventh house in the fifth house indicates earning through speculations, intellectual professions, management services, banking, teaching, etc.  The placement of the lord of the eleventh house in the sixth house indicates disputes in the sources of income, income through money lending, legal practice and hospitals.  The placement of the lord of the eleventh house in the seventh house indicates income from foreign lands, business in partnership, luxurious hotels, import-export of luxury items, etc.

The placement of the lord of the eleventh house in the eighth house indicates income from foreign lands, service, insurance business, practice of mystic sciences, etc. The placement of the lord of the eleventh house in ninth house indicates income from foreign stay and visits, inheritance, involvement in religious activities and teaching.  The placement of the lord of the eleventh house in the tenth house indicates income through one's profession depending upon the planets and signs exerting influencing on the tenth house.  The placement of the lord of the eleventh house in the eleventh house indicates income through financial institutions, gains through highly placed friends and elder siblings.  The placement of the lord of the eleventh house in the twelfth house may impel the native to go to foreign lands for earning.  His business ventures in the native place may involve large amount of expenses and losses.

The influence of the planets on the eleventh house is as per their functional nature, strength and the level of affluence is as per the capacity of the planets concerned. The impact of placement of planets changes as per their placement in various signs.  For example, placement of a planet or even the Sun in the sign Aquarius ruled by Saturn reduces the impact of the affluence of that planet while the placement of a planet or even Saturn in the sign Leo enhances its capacity to bless the native with large financial benefits.

ROLE OF EDUCATIONAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS

In addition to the traditional methods of assessing professional accomplishments, we have to consider the factors governing the educational prospects of a native, that is to say, the strength of vidya sthana, (second and fourth houses), significators for education (Mercury) and intelligence (Jupiter) and the strength of the Moon; the following factors also call for consideration.

1) Planetary periods in operation between the age of 16 and 24, as, irrespective of the strength of house and significator of education, the unfavorable operating planetary periods will retard the progress of education, both academic and professional.

2) The tenth house.  The results of one's educational accomplishments are filtered through the tenth house.  Therefore, the tenth house together with operating planetary periods also determines the area of education and vocation as to whether it is medicine, engineering, general administration, analytical, or a routine job, etc.

3) The second house ruling status and its relationship with the ascendant, third house, tenth house, etc., as also the planets placed in the second house.  The second house also rules education as the status of a person is directly linked to his educational and professional qualifications.

4)    The ninth house - a strong ninth house has roots for rewarding the native for his efforts in life.

The weak and afflicted planets in their bhukti between the age of 16 and 24 do not allow the person to (1) acquire education suitable for successful vocation; (2) get a suitable job; and (3) settle well in life.  Similarly, exalted and strong functional benefic planets give an impetus to the academic pursuits of a person.

The planets influencing the ascendant and the tenth house and operating between the age of 16 and 24 become primary determinants of one's educational pursuits.

Identifying Professional  Determinants "

The professional prospects of a person are ruled by the interplay of planets becoming primary, additional and secondary determinants of professional matters, their placement in a house/sign, their strength, the influence of other planets over them and the operating planetary periods. Predicting profession, a person is likely to take up and succeed, is quite a complex job and it is one of the most sought after fields in predictive Vedic Astrology. Numerous professional areas, a highly competitive environment; be it in business, service, profession, politics, etc., and its magnitude are the various aspects which have charged the atmosphere making it quite difficult for the decision makers to identify one which would be most suitable from the point of view of success and also the potentialities of the seekers.

There are number of factors which help us in arriving at a decision on this vital issue, viz. the nature of sign falling in the ascendant, tenth house governing profession, second house ruling the status, the impact of the third house which rules enterprising nature, the eleventh house signifying income and the ascendant of dasamsa (the divisional chart for analysis of professional matters) of a native. All of the foregoing factors collectively govern the magnitude of the professional matters. The sign of a royal planet like the Sun, the Moon or affluent planets Venus, Jupiter, Mars, etc. indicate the level of affluence of the profession of a native and the income, there from. The lords of the second, third and ninth houses, if containing mooltrikona signs, also act as the Sun. The strength of the lords of these signs and the operating planetary periods hold the key to decipher the planetary influences. Similarly, understanding the nature of planets becoming significators for profession and the planets exerting close influence on the houses ruling professional matters is necessary.
