The 10th House marks the highest point in the birth chart, representing one’s public image and social status, career trajectory, and ultimate purpose in life. Natal planets in the Tenth House reveal an ambitious individual, and changes (large and small) in one’s profession often occur when planets transit this zone.

With Sun in the 10th House, strong motivation exists for work success and/or personal accomplishments. You aspire to be an expert at something. You are ambitious, and self-aggrandizement is possible. People in high places can help or hinder your career. You have a natural ability to inspire others through your example. Depending on how your Sun and Saturn are aspected, you may pursue success and power for the benefit of others, or you may seek success and power for yourself with little regard for anyone else. In any case, you desire to stand out and be acknowledged for your achievements.
