10th House (Karma Bhava)

10th House (Karma Bhava)“Wake up! 
It is never too late to diagnose your life. 
Analyze what you are 
and what your deep-seated work is, 
so that you can make yourself 
what you should be.”
—Paramhansa Yogananda

The tenth house represents the action we take in this life in order to fulfill our life direction. Planets get very energized here. The Sun is very strong when placed in the tenth house and will express its natural authority and leadership. Saturn placed in the tenth house can handle responsibility and works will within an organization or structure.

Some see the tenth house as the father. The tenth house can also represent government work, administration and business.
