More on the 10th house

The 6th house is a malefic house and is called a Dusthana Bhava for the same reason. As a general rule in sidereal Vedic astrology, the placement of a malefic house lord brings trouble, disruption, and obstacles to the house where it resides, in the current case, to the 10th house.

In short, it means that obstacles and challenges are brought to the professional path of the native.

Whether there will be auspicious outcomes from these initial troubles and disruptions, is largely dependent on the dignity of the 6th lord in the tenth house.

On the other hand, the 6th lord in the 10th house is in favorable 5th from its own sign/house, which adds favorability to this combination. Herein the 5th denotes intelligence, progeny, creativity, past life deeds, luck, wealth, authority, fame, reputation, etc.

In addition to that, both houses are houses of growth or Upachay Bhava which indicates gradual improvement and exponential growth of the significances of the houses involved in this combination in question.

Furthermore, both, 6th and 10th houses belong to the same triangle of wealth or Artha Trikona which makes it a very prominent and strong combination for monetary matters, especially if the 6th lord is in good dignity or well-placed sign wise.

Results of 6th House Lord in 10th House

Powerful & Renowned

In the ancient source of Vedic astrology, BPHS it is mentioned that people with this combination have the capacity to become renowned within society.

This effect can be explained by the 5th position of 6th lord from its own sign in the considered house. The 5th house is the natural home for the fifth zodiac sign Leo, which denotes authority, dignity, and fame.

Great Heights

At the same time, the 10th house is the mid sky or midheaven, which signifies the greatest heights a person can attain according to the birth chart.

Accordingly, when the 6th lord is very well placed in the 10th house of midheaven, it blesses the native with high achievements with the help of fame and authoritative nature.

Troublesome Work Life

The 10th house signifies main duties in life and the fulfillment of which is possible through profession or career.

However, as the malefic 6th ruler causes negative influence over the 10th house, it indicates a lot of troubles and disruptions in the career of the native.

It indicates that the native is always troubled by enemies who cause damage to the reputation of the native. Jealous enemies try their best to cause degradation to the reputation of the native.

Accordingly, these natives should always apply more effort than normal people usually do in order to achieve success in a career. They must be also extra careful in order not to lose their temper and cause damage to their reputation as they are constantly provoked by their enemies.

Gains From Service

As mentioned in the introduction of this article, the combination provides a lot of opportunities and traits in order to earn a good amount of monetary gains.

They are able to reach great heights in activities that are related to offering any kind of service as the 6th house significance suggests.

It does not necessarily mean that they should be serving as a subordinate. This combination, as it involves authority and reputation, enables being own boss as well, as long as they offer service in a humble way to their society by fulfilling their main duties or karma.

The t6h house is a natural home of Virgo which denotes great attention to detail. Hence, this combination indicates having great organizational skills that are very helpful in the profession or main field of activity.

Alternatively, if this combination is ill-formed, it indicates that the financial condition is damaged by the presence of loans and debts. It also indicates a lack of strength, stamina, intelligence, and creativity that hinders success in business ventures.

Loans For Comforts

This combination also indicates that people with this combination obtain conveyances, luxurious items, and other comforts with the leverage of loans.

If this the 6th ruler is in good dignity or is well placed, it means that the loans benefit the native in this way.

Otherwise, the excessive usage of loans may cause serious damage to the financial condition due to many debts.

Cunning & Competitive

As the 6th house and lord of is involved, it indicates that the native obtains great heights in a very cunning and competitive way. Such natives love the competition and are ready to compete in a fierce way and outscore any opposition.

However, as the malefic house lord is involved, the process of obtaining these results is very difficult and troublesome. A lot of effort and pain must be endured in order to reap the benefits of this combination.

That is to say, the 6th lord of enemies brings them to the 10th house of profession and karma or main duties. In other words, these natives experience endless troubles and obstacles caused by irritating enemies at their workplace, business, or main field of activity.

It is disappointing but it is their karma, to serve their duty while fighting enmity all the time.

Motivated & Strong

As both houses are the growth and expansion houses, the strength, power, and motivation to overcome adversities and fight even more powerful enemies are gradually increasing.

The involvement of the 6th lord here also denotes the great physical strength of the native and aggression, which helps to deal with difficulties and adversities in life.

However, the positive outcomes are promised only if the 6th ruler is in good dignity or supported by other strong planets in the birth chart.

Creative & Intelligent

As from the 5th disposition, intelligence and wisdom are added to the equation. Hence, when this is combined with their fiery and aggressive competitiveness, the results are amazing which enables them to fight all battles and ensure victory most of the time.

Additionally, these natives are very creative when it comes to competition. They are able to come o with brilliant and ingenious ideas on how to win any competition and challenge in life that ensure prosperity and a high rise in life.

Charismatic Public Speaker

BPHS also mentions that these natives are very talented in public speaking.

This effect can be explained with the support of various astrological indicators.

To begin with, the 10th house of great heights or midheaven, where the native shines the brightest possible according to the overall chart. So the given house also signifies the public or masses from society.

At the same time, the 5th disposition of the 6th ruler from its own sign signifies a general style of expression, as the 5th is the natural domain of Leo zodiac sign.

According to the above-mentioned significances, the combination gives a magnetic, appealing, and charismatic style of expression with an aggressive undertone to the native, which influences the masses from society in a very effective and powerful way.

Despite the intonation being aggressive and quarrelsome, the native expresses things that matter to the people. The quarrelsome and critical style of expression helps these natives to courageously speak the truth without fearing opposition.

Obsessive Over Details

Yes, they are picky and dive into details a lot, but for a great cause and reason, to bring out the most important issues in order to fix them. It also reflects their seriousness about law and regulations.

They are very critical and obsessed about every detail, especially when it comes to law and regulations.

In fact, they can become very irritated when someone breaks the law way too immorally and easily. Hence, they are always willing to initiate disputes in order to bring justice to their feet.

In fact, they love opposition and take it as a blessing in disguise as they know that every challenge makes them more intelligent. Hence, they are always ready to participate in powerful debates where they can prove their wisdom, power, and influence.

Imposing Of Laws

Alternatively, if the 6th ruler is in bad dignity or ill-placed, it indicates that the native is very aggressive, cruel and has the habit of imposing their own ideas and laws to the public forcefully which causes damage to the reputation of the native, which also hiders the process of achieving great heights.

The imposing of own ideas and needs come from inner weakness which is caused by the ill-placed 6th ruler. It makes them fear disputes, obstacles, and challenges which makes them trying to forcefully and in a cunning way win opposition without making any effort.

Domestic Trouble

BPHS also mentions that these natives will find happiness from other countries than their home country.

The reason for this effect is hidden in the fact that the 6th lord in the 10th house casts direct aspect upon the 4th house of the home country, domestic happiness, and peace of mind.

As the 6th lord is involved, it indicates enmity in the homeland which steals their peace of mind. They are constantly troubled by enemies and neighbors in their birthplace.

Hence, this is why these natives find peace of mind abroad.
