With the Sun placed in the house of career, this life area will be heavily emphasized in the native’s reality. The natal Sun in the 10th house is considered to be one of the best Sun placements, and in special occasions can bring fame, glory and great success. This Sun placement indicates a successful and dominating father, who becomes a role model for the native while he is a child. The father is frequently a public figure or elsehow have authority, and the child observes him being respected by other people. This admiration sets similar goals for the native when he grows up; he has the urge to experience the same attitude from the world towards him, and will strive to create himself a successful career.
The Sun represents our basic temperament, our deep “I”, our will, our ambition, our goals. In this House 10, The Sun (ruler of Leo) will therefore have a particular role to play in destiny in general and in the social and professional domain in particular.
The Sun will therefore play an important role in the choice of professional career, with a preponderance for any activity requiring responsibilities and autonomy, the person needing to represent something important in what he does. With the Sun, there is also a notion of “creation” or “creativity”, and therefore of enhancement.
The sign of the Sun will therefore play an important role, because it will indicate in this professional field, how the person uses his will, his ambition, and his ability to show off: in a concrete and practical way (in Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) , inventive and original (in Gemini, Aquarius), enterprising and fond of challenges (in Aries, Sagittarius, Leo, Scorpio), in relation to others (in Libra, Cancer, Pisces).
The good aspects to the Sun will indicate what will allow the person to highlight his “I”, his will, and his ability to create, at the level of his professional destiny in particular. With the Moon (communication and relationship), Venus (aesthetic and artistic sense, ability to seduce), Mars (sense of initiative, decisions), Jupiter (ability to lead and organize), Saturn (ability to manage and structure, perseverance), Uranus (inventive, animator and motivator), Neptune (inspiration and creativity), Pluto (combativity, force of transformation).
The negative aspects will indicate what the Solar weaknesses can cause at the level of professional destiny, while having the basic aptitudes. With the Moon (relational tensions), with Mars (misunderstood initiatives), with Jupiter (excess, too much ambition, exaggerated ego), with Saturn (rigor, lack of adaptation or perseverance), with Uranus (difficulty to fit into a collective), with Neptune (poorly defined objectives, unstable will), with Pluto (revolt, rebellion, radical actions).
Finally, the closer the Sun is to the tip of the Midheaven, the more dominant and active it will be in destiny, and therefore the more important its planetary transits will be to study in this field, as a transited planet.
