How planets behave when placed in the 10th house in Vedic Astrology?
10th house is ruled by Saturn in the default zodiac and Saturn is the planet of automation or repetitive work because Saturn represents machines and machines are meant to automate things. Now just think of the sign of Gemini falling on the 10th house and the 4th house and you will find a great difference. Just think of printing machines. Printing is represented by the sign of Gemini while machines are meant to automate tasks. Now if you are working with the printing machines then it is an act of the 10th house. Suppose the sign of Gemini falls on the 10th house and if Saturn is placed in the 10th house then you could work with the printing machines.
But again just think of the sign of Gemini falling on the 4th house (instead of 10th house). You might have seen many people giving knowledge and information about marketing and advertising. They are communicating about how to market and advertise through websites and youtube videos. The sign of Gemini also represents communication and marketing & advertising. So they are only giving knowledge and information but not doing any work with machines related to printing or communication engineering. That is the major difference when the sign of Gemini falls on the 10th house and the 4th house.
10th house is the house of actual work while the 4th house is the house of nurturing which is mostly giving knowledge and information by expressing your emotions and feelings as 4th house is the house of expressing your emotions and feelings through communication and when you communicate or advertise you give knowledge and information only. 4th house is ruled by Moon in the default zodiac and so it is the house of expressing your emotions and feelings as the Moon represents emotions and feelings.
I just mentioned here about the difference between the 4th house and the 10th house just to clarify things in a more better way as unless you know the difference you will not be able to know how the planets will behave in the 10th house. Saturn in the 10th house will make you work extremely hard but Saturn in the 4th house will restrict you from the comforts of life as the 4th house represents our comforts, peace and conveniences of life and Saturn has opposite energy as it is a planet of work and not comforts. I have already written more about it in the article > how planets will behave in the 4th house?.
Whenever you work with certain tools to create or manufacture something then that is represented by the 10th house. Even if you are involved in digital designing such as creating images through tools like photoshop then this is also the work of the 10th house as you are using online tools to create something. So whether the tools are online or offline it doesn't matter but whenever you work with tools then that is the act of the 10th house of automation and work. When you create software then that is also the work of the 10th house as a software automates a certain task and automation as I said is nothing but the 10th house activity.
The automation you can see in every field of life as machines are used to automate tasks in different fields of life. For example, people involved in making railway bogie parts are always working with machines and so if Mercury falls on the sign of Capricorn (for Aries ascendant) in the 10th house or if Saturn falls in the sign of Gemini in the 10th house then the native could work as an engineer in the railway as the sign of Gemini (or Mercury) is also a sign of travel and trains are ways to travel and so when you do automation in the railways 10th house Gemini is possible and when Saturn is placed in the 10th house then you could actually work as an engineer in the railways to automate tasks. Engineering is nothing but automation and so mostly, people will become engineers when a planet like Mars is placed in the 10th house as Mars is a planet of energy and when Mars is placed in the 10th house it shows putting energy in working with automation.
Just like automation or engineering in railways is seen when the sign of Gemini or Mercury falls on the 10th house similarly automation is seen in the field of IT (information technology) when the sign of Taurus falls on the 10th house or if Venus is placed in the 10th house as Venus represents website, apps, software, etc. This is just to give an idea how the planet will behave in the 10th house and not necessarily the native will always become a railway engineer if Saturn is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 10th house because there are a lot of other possibilities too with the sign of Gemini and automation. People working in the printing industry may also have their Saturn placed in the sign of Gemini in the 10th house as Gemini also represents printing and photocopy (photostat) as Gemini is a dual sign.
If the sign of Cancer falls on the 10th house and if Saturn is placed in the 10th house then automation or engineering can be seen in the construction, food, vehicles, and health care industries depending on the location of Moon, 10th house lord, in the birth chart. This is because the sign of Cancer is a sign of food, clothing, home, health, construction, home appliances, vehicles, etc. People working as automobile engineers and people working as the food processing engineers are good examples of that.
Whenever Saturn is placed in the 10th house it makes you work with the tools. I was wondering how come Sachin Tendulkar has his Saturn placed in the sign of Taurus in the 10th house but then I realize that he plays the game of cricket with a cricket bat which is made of wood and it is also a tool as wood is again represented by Saturn along with iron and steel. So sportsmen are also seen from the 10th house if they are using tools such as hockey stick, cricket bat, tennis racket, etc.
When the sign of Leo falls on the 10th house and if Saturn is also placed in the 10th house then you might have seen people involved in making equipment such as cameras, mobile phones, television, videos, photography equipment, cinema equipment, video editing, etc then such people may have this placement as these products are meant to get limelight and Sun or the sign of Leo also gives us limelight.
If the sign of Virgo falls on the 10th house and if Saturn is also placed there then you might have seen people working with health care equipment such as gym equipment and medical equipment then such people who are involved in the manufacturing of these products are usually seen from this placement as Virgo is a sign of health care. Also, people involved in weight lifting and other such sports where the equipment is made of iron or steel can also be seen from this placement.
If the sign of Libra falls on the 10th house and if Saturn is also placed in the 10th house then this is often the placement for people who are resolving disputes in the legal field as Libra is a sign of resolving something and 10th house is also the house of proving something through authority, logic, and law. 9th house is law but when you prove the law with some facts and evidence then that is Saturn or the 10th house.
Also, 5th house, as you know, is ruled by Sun in the default zodiac and so 5th house is also the house of kingship and since 10th house is 6th from the 5th house it means 10th house is also the house of providing government services or an authoritative position (leadership position or chair) in some company or large organization. This is because anything 6th house is a service (seva). So often people acquire kingly positions (or government posts) when several planets (especially Sun) are placed in the 10th house. 10th house is only such a house where all the planets do well and give good results but they make you work hard as it is a house of work.
Also, there are times when you dig deep into the mother earth to get water (making of a well) and large companies like Reliance is also involved in the extraction of crude oil and that is also done by drilling wells into an underground reservoir. When you dig deep and go to the roots then that is nothing but the representation of the sign of Scorpio and people involved in such kind of work often have their Saturn placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 10th house. But again a lot will depend on the position of Mars in the birth chart to exactly know what kind of digging it is.
