This article is in continuation to my earlier articles on selecting a correct profession through astrology. The 1st article is on http://www.astrocamp.com/profession-selection-astrology.html and my 2nd article is on http://www.astrocamp.com/profession-selection-astrology-2.html. A person will succeed by having a profession as indicated by strongest sign in the horoscope. A sign which has the support of its lord or aspected by benefic planet is considered to be strong. The most powerful and dominant planet in a horoscope has often a say in deciding one’s career, especially when he is the lord of the ascendant or lagna.
Planets give excellent indications of success and failures in the various professions. If children are guided properly and are given liberty to act according to their likes and aptitudes, they can build a bright future for themselves. Many times education is wasted because millions of people pursue wrong vocations. In 21st century every skill is part and parcel of money generating scheme and have acquired their firm places in any profession. Astrology can help one evaluate the prospective of a child and can have a reasonable idea of the field in which this has best chance to develop.
This article attempts to divide professions according to the birth signs. The birth position of Ascendant / Birth Moon / Birth position of Sun / Lord of the Ascendant / Lord of the 10th house / Placement of the 10th lord should be integrated and considered together. The strongest of all the above will be likely to give the result. However a proper conclusion can only be met when the horoscope is analyzed properly from career perspective.
