Need to reorient astrological principles Astrology has moved from stages of fortune telling and predictions about marriage, children, illness through muhurta, prasana varshphal etc. into more complex areas. Presently, more work has to be done in areas of educational & career counselling.

Astrology can help the native by telling or guiding the parents in which field or on which the children would be successful by giving them proper guidance at proper time. This work can be done by collective efforts in a group of well trained astrologers who can make use of their professional background to give a new and modern meaning to ancient terms used in the books of astrology.

 In the competitive age of our times, boys and girls have to decide which line of education to pursue and which profession to choose. Now a days school are a test of parents and they have difficult time in getting little once admit to a suitable school. After secondary level, parents would like their children to do professional courses for which they did not get a chance while young or want to put their children in which they are already prospering.

So profession like that of a doctor or engineer are very prestigious one but now a days computer field and business administrative/transportation/politics and journalism are also very prestigious. This stark reality can only be explained by assigning a greater meaning in interpretation of 10th house. In fact, 10th house does provide indications to show differences in nature of postings and the duties one is required to discharge.

The 10th house is a very important house in the horoscope of a person. It is the house which determines one’s rank, social status and profession.

The general significators in any horoscope are the Ascendant, the 10th house, the Sun and the Moon. These signs are respectively known as the Lagna, the Dashama Lagna, the Surya Lagna and the Chandra Lagna.

The 10th house has to be invariably judged not only from the Lagna but also from the Chandra Lagna. This is considered opinion of ancient stages and scholars like Varahamir. Saravali devotes a separate Chapter to discuss the effects of planets placed in the 10th house from Chandra Lagna.
