The Tenth House in Astrology:

Career and Reputation

Keywords: Career, Professional Life, Reputation, Status, Public Life.

Associated Sign: Capricorn

Associated Element: Earth

House Type: Angular

Overview Of the Tenth House:

The Tenth House is quite straightforward when it comes to its meaning – it’s your professional life, in a nutshell. The vocation you are called to walk, the career you decide on. In older times, this house showed, for women, the kinds of families they married into and their class, status and reputation. This is why the Tenth House is also associated with how you're seen ‘out in the world’. Your public image, so to speak.

The Tenth House can still show the status of the family you marry into. However, it’s often more about your own, personal reputation and what the general public seems to think of you – the people who don’t know you. Whereas the First House, the Ascendant, is more personal, the Tenth – also known as the Midheaven, or the MC - is very impersonal.

Tenth House in Aries:

Your public reputation is that of a leader, pioneer and trailblazer! Even if you sometimes don’t feel all that brave within yourself, your public image speaks a different story. You tend to be rather driven in your career and like to take action immediately, as most Aries placements do – sitting around waiting for opportunities is not your cup of tea. Initiative can be one of your greatest career strengths.

With this said, astrology suggests you may be quite impulsive professionally and struggle to settle on one thing, especially if you get bored. This makes you suited to a path where you have independence and the ability to call the shots and instigate new ideas. This helps to keep you inspired.

Tenth House in Taurus:

Taurus is a lovely sign for the Tenth House. Because this House is naturally earthy, and therefore materially - orientated, you should have no issues making your professional dreams come true. Your biggest weakness can be laziness, so it’s essential you have something to motivate you – and that motivation is likely to be the opportunity to earn lots of money! You crave the good life, and like to have a stable, predictable career that you can slowly build up.

You may be suited to working with property, finances, fashion, creativity, luxury items or business in general. It’s important that you overcome any insecurities and focus on your professional strengths.

Tenth House in Gemini:

With your Tenth House in Gemini, you are likely to have more than one career or calling in your life. You like to shake things up and keep it interesting – you crave change and variety in your profession. If your role doesn’t shift often enough, you’ll look for greener pastures.

Astrology suggests you’ll also likely pick a vocation that utilizes your brain and analytical abilities. You’ll be seen as someone with an above average intelligence, and you like to use your mind at work. This makes you a natural communicator, writer, teacher, salesperson or coach. You have a million and one ideas that you love to share. You’ll need to be careful of being overly restless or seeming unreliable – whilst it’s wonderful to have many skills, it’s also important to discipline yourself and commit when it’s important.

Tenth House in Cancer:

A successful business life generally doesn’t always appeal to you – unless it nourishes your desire to nurture others. If you can align this desire with your career path, you’ll have it made. Working in a professional that doesn’t let you pour your heart and soul into it will simply leave you feeling cold.

This nurturing energy will be on display for the world to see, and people can be drawn to your caring public image. You may choose a career like being a mother/father, nurse, healer or some other profession that lets you look after others. You can be very emotional at work, which is why it’s important you have a sympathetic and caring, flexible work environment to accommodate your moods.

Tenth House in Leo:

Leo is a fabulous sign to have on the Tenth House! You are a natural-born leader, and will find yourself gravitating towards a career path that allows you to take charge. In fact, anything less just won’t suit you, and you may struggle to work underneath someone or take orders.

You’re the type of person who also needs to express yourself fully in the workplace. Thus, this can sometimes indicate a profession in acting or performing – if you’re not a CEO or manager, that is. You pour all of yourself into your work and identify very strongly with the career that you choose. One might even say you are your career!

Tenth House in Virgo:

With Virgo as your career sign, you tend to pick a career involved in health, wellness, environmentalism, service, finances or administration. Your special skill is that you’re someone who can handle a huge amount of detail and make sense out of it all. You love to feel useful, and people will see you as someone with all the answers. You appear to the world as extremely capable, and your levelheadedness is a strong quality.

You may, however, be quite hard on yourself and critical on the job. You do have to cut yourself some slack and realize that you do a more careful job than most.

Tenth House in Libra:

You’re brilliant at most things that you take on, as long as it involves communication and socializing. Your people skills are excellent, making you an excellent diplomat, mediator, judge or customer relationships expert. You can do well whenever dealing with people one-on-one, and you are generally very well-liked with a reputation for fairness and integrity.

You also can be extremely charming and have a very positive public image. You thrive in professions that allow you to use this skill to the best of your ability. Balance is essential to you when it comes to work and play, and your only real weakness is being indecisive about the career path you want.

Tenth House in Scorpio:

With Scorpio as your Tenth House sign, you are the type of person who is always going to want – and get – power on the job. You’re seen as quite ambitious, and you can climb the career ladder very strategically. You can do extremely well as a therapist, CEO, in finance or an investigative, research-focused profession.

You’ll find that people tend to give you the reins at work, seeing you as someone who can wield this control very well. Just be careful of becoming dominating and overbearing, as that could color your public reputation. Be aware that you may face more than one crisis in your career, sometimes burning everything down to restart all over again.

Tenth House in Sagittarius:

Sagittarius is one of the luckiest signs of the zodiac, and so having this as your career sign can make you land yourself in very good situations. You may enjoy traveling as part of your profession, be a great teacher, wildlife expert or even have a profession involved in leadership. With that said, you could have more than one change of career, as you do get restless if things aren’t exciting and always changing. You seek growth in your profession and will choose whatever offers the most chance of that.

Your public reputation is usually happy-go-lucky, bright and positive. People should respond to you very warmly, and you’re generally well-liked, if a touch irresponsible, on the job.

Tenth House in Capricorn:

Capricorn belongs on the Tenth House, and thus, this can reflect a very powerful career path. However, it could take a bit of time before you find your groove, and some people with this sign here are late bloomers. However, once you find your fit, you excel at it. With that said, you may also have the ‘Benjamin Button’ effect on your career, either being successful super early and relaxing later, or the other way around.

You can do very well in whatever you choose, and people will see you as responsible, capable and wise. You have an excellent work ethic and will go above and beyond to succeed. This often lands you in a managerial position or a position where you hold all the power, such as being a CEO or business owner.

Tenth House in Aquarius:

Your career is often one linked to humanitarianism, and you tend to be seen as someone who really cares about social justice. Hence, a career in teaching, educating, upliftment of others or the humanities can be exciting for you. Aquarius is also the sign of technology, so you may find yourself gravitating towards this sector.

Whatever you do, you need to do it differently and be unique. Freedom is also essential to your chosen career path, and you won’t much like having to work in a rigid, 9 – 5 kind of career. You are your own boss, most of the time, but you can be a good team player, as long as you’re not being controlled. The world will see you as a free spirit, and notice your progressive attitude to your career.

Tenth House in Pisces:

Honestly, Pisces is not a sign suited to a ‘normal’, mainstream career. In fact, this sign can make you want to escape work entirely and focus on spirituality, travel or your personal interests. Thus, many people with this career sign choose something that’s vocational instead of security-oriented, such as healing, service, helping or an altruistic path. You may also have a particular draw towards music or poetry, which helps you communicate your powerful feelings.

You may change career often, perhaps feeling confused about what your true path is. The trick is to let yourself be guided rather than forced into anything.

    Let's just say that when I see your email, I can't help but smile and quickly go check out my horoscope. I'm learning so much about the "potentials" that the stars, the planets, and you (as a guide, an interpreter) allow me to align with (or not 😁❤️‍🩹).

    Hello, I'm donalding in California. I was elated to get your text message and your challenge to make a video testimonial. I'm at a huge crossroads and starting over and I am the oldest person in the dorms at West Hills College and California. I'm going to study and get smarter and figure a way out of this little mess. I didn't know about Pisces or any of these things coming into my life and I definitely need to avoid bullying. There are and things are going to be just fine. We are interconnected, we are, we are loving, we are not competitive, and we are not.

    Hi, guys. Me and the cat here say hello, Kitty. I think anytime you got a real person that you can see talking to you is better. I think just video in general makes everything better. It's more entertaining, it's easier than reading. So if you do your own fair share of reading, it's good to just be able to listen for a change. So I think it's a good thing. I don't know if I'm answering, really what you wanted me to address, but keep up the good work. I'm enjoying it anyways. Bye, guys. Bye.

    Hello. How you doing? Good morning. I just like to appreciate all the encouraging things and basically, like, being. Hitting everything on in the head, what goes on through my life and everything, you know, I'm a firm believer, and it's just a real blessing to have someone like you all to, you know, with the heads up, with the presence, just everything. And I just wanted to let you know, greatly appreciate of you, you all. And, um, like, I know I have a special calling in life. Just through various things just went on in my life. I could tell. It's like, you know, I haven't been through a lot. I've been through a lot, but I always let my good outweigh my bad, always keep me a positive head. And, you know, I do my best to speak life into my situations instead of doubt and complain most of the time because I know God's got my back regardless, through anything. But I just like to thank you for all you have done. And at times, I may even forget to look on, look on here. But when I do go back and look, I catch what need to be caught, you know, it's just that, you know, it's a busy point in my life right now. Like, it's real busy and. But I still make time through it all. I just like to say I thank you and I appreciate you all for each and everything. And when I do be able to receive the funds and start investing in this and help out, I will. Until then, thank you. I love you. Thank you. Bye.

    Kelli, I have come to RELY upon your dailies (Cancer), especially your unique Rating System! Feel LOST on those rare days when I don't have that going for me! So what has become of your daily "extras"? Are you taking a break and someone is subbing for you lately? I certainly hope that is the case and that you are well! Praying for you, love you! - Lou

    I just want you to know I absolutely love you. I rely on you. If I get rich, I'm taking you with me. I'm going to have you with me every day of my life just because it's kind of weird. It's kind of scary how dead on you are all the time. But you want to know what? I love you. Thank you for finding your way in my life. I love all your emails and everything. And sometimes it scares me and I just try to be like, okay, let me just steer away because I always feel like I'm missing out on something, being occupied by stuff I'd rather not be occupied by, entertaining people and stuff that shouldn't be, getting people blocking my blessings, I guess you'd say. But besides that, I just need to take a leap of faith and just go all in it because I know who I am, what I want and I can't get it when I'm sitting in the house not doing anything because I'm all depressed because of the people that I have, people that suck my energy away. I don't know how to explain it. Just people that front row cheer me on to fail. But seriously, I love you. Thank you. I appreciate you. Bye.

    Hey, Kelly. I am ready. If I had known I was going to be recording this, I would have worn some makeup. So anyway. Oh, that's my vanity speaking. Sorry about that. But anyway, I do love listening to you and I always acquire a lot of knowledge. I've been studying astrology since I was about eleven years old. I love it and I can't get enough of it. But I just wanted to let you know that I loved that quote from Eleanor Roosevelt that you put on there. It's so true. We need to live life while we have it and make the best of it. And astrology will help us lead the way. I'm assured of that. Anything we can learn when it comes to astrology will only help us to live a better life. And by your volunteering all your information, I thank you a million times over. You are such an asset. And I know the stars and the planets are shining down upon you and I listen to you all the time on YouTube and your Zoom channel and have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope your throat feels better. Kelli keeps drinking some hot. Thank you for everything you do. My name is Judith and I'm from Greensboro, North Carolina, and I'm a cancer and I love all of what you have to say. Thank you. Bye.
