How to see psychologist counsellor in Vedic Astrology? (Mars in Cancer)
Now when the planet like Mars is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 1st house it means putting a lot of energy or efforts (as Mars represents energy within us according to Vedic Astrology) in nurturing or teaching or counseling. Also, Mars is retrograding and so giving it more strength. Moon is the most important planets which tell what is going in the mind of the native and since Moon is also placed in the sign of Cancer this shows the native's soul is all about nurturing as Cancer is a sign of nurturing. Also, Moon and Mars both are falling in the sign of Cancer but in the Nakshatra of Ashlesha which is specifically about health care.
Also, Jupiter is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the Jyestha Nakshatra and the sign of Scorpio has a lot to do with someone's psyche especially when Mars, ruler of Scorpio, is placed in the sign of Cancer as the sign of Cancer is all about our inner emotions which determine our psyche. Jupiter represents our wisdom and knowledge and so here the native is using his wisdom and knowledge in dealing with the psychological issues of others. Also, for a Cancer ascendant, Jupiter rules their 6th house which shows they already possess the wisdom and knowledge of health care as 6th house is the house of diseases (health care), difficulties, arguments, and disputes.
Shravana Nakshatra is basically the Nakshatra of counseling and you can see the native's 11th lord Venus is placed in the Shravana Nakshatra. Shravana Nakshatra is symbolized by ears which means listening to others' problems and then advising them. Just like a social worker listens to the problems of the people living in a particular society and try to resolve their issues and difficulties (related to their basic needs) with the government and this way they try to help the public. Listening or counseling is the main theme of Shravana Nakshatra.
For the native, Saturn is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 8th house which shows dealing with the public or the customers regarding issues related to the 8th house and 8th house is also the house of deep-rooted issues and since the default ruler of 8th house, Mars, is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 1st house this shows the deep-rooted issues of the 8th house are nothing but psychological issues as Cancer is a sign that represents our psyche or inner being or our mental state.
Also, Rahu in the 4th house is the biggest indicator of someone being interested in nurturing other people as the 4th house is originally ruled by Moon in the default zodiac and Moon is a planet that is certainly concerned with psychological issues and mental problems. So if you are looking for a psychological career then the involvement of Rahu with either the sign of Cancer or 4th house is very important.
You might have heard about Sai Baba of Shirdi (Mumbai, Maharastra). He was a great Saint in the 18th century and he was a Virgo ascendant with Mars falling in the sign of Cancer in the 11th house and his Rahu was placed in the sign of Aries in the 8th house and he used to cure people who had psychological issues. 8th house involvement is also important as the 8th house represents our past life deeds and all the problems we get in this life are due to our past life deeds.
Also, if you see the native's 2nd lord Sun is also placed in the 8th house in the sign of Aquarius and this also shows the native's father may also be having some psychological issues as Sun represents the father in Vedic Astrology and Aquarius is an enemy sign for Sun. Usually, people are cut-off from the society and spend time in isolation when Sun comes in the sign of Aquarius as Aquarius is a sign of being social and being collective and when Sun is placed in the sign of Aquarius it won't allow you to be social as Sun represents individuality. When you cannot become social then it starts giving your depression which is nothing but a psychological issue. Here are the placement of different planets in the native's birth chart in terms of Nakshatras.
Lagna > placed in Punarvasu Nakshatra pada 4
Sun (AK) > placed in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra pada 3
Moon (AmK) > placed in Ashlesha Nakshatra pada 3
