Your Astrology Career Path in the Birth Chart

The 10th House

Starting with the 10th house, this is the house of career. It governs your goals and direction, so it shows what you’re striving for in this life.

For most people, the career you choose is directly related to your 10th house.

You’ll look at what the zodiac sign your 10th house falls in rules, as well as the planets located in the 10th house, and the location of the 10th house ruler (the natural ruling planet of the sign on the 10th house cusp).

The 6th House

The 6th house is the house of work, governing the kind of work environment you need, how you are with those you work with/for, and how you are as an employee. Like with the 10th house, you’ll look at the sign the 6th house falls in, any planets in the 6th house, and the location of the 6th house ruler.

The 2nd House

The 2nd house is the house of money, governing how you can best make money (as well as your attitude toward money and how you use it). Just as with the 10th and 6th houses, you’ll look at the sign the 2nd house falls in, any planets in the 2nd house, and the location of the 2nd house ruled.

These three houses usually fall in one of the elements in your chart: all Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), all Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), all Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), or all Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces).

Fire Signs

When they’re in the Fire signs, you tend to be someone who works best for yourself, independently, and without a lot of rules. You can devote a lot of energy to your work, but only if you’re really invested.

You may have Fire professional houses if you’re a Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces Rising.

Earth Signs

When they’re in the Earth signs, you can be more traditionalist with your work and are hard-working and focused. You can stick to whatever you do.

You may have Earth professional houses if you’re an Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius Rising.

Air Signs

When they’re in the Air signs, you may need to focus on something creative professionally, or at least something that keeps you interested. You can benefit from using your mental abilities in your work.

You may have Air professional houses if you’re a Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn Rising.

Water Signs

When they’re Water signs, you may need to do something that helps others and makes you feel good emotionally. You need to be emotionally invested in what you do. Otherwise, you may not do it.

You may have Water professional houses if you’re a Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius Rising.

There are additional areas you can assess, like your Saturn (natural ruler of the 10th house and career), Jupiter (where you find opportunity), North Node (which shows your potential and purpose), and 5th house (which shows what you really enjoy in life), but the 2nd, 6th, and 10th houses are where you’re going to look first and foremost, and have the greatest impact on your professional life.

When the transit (moving) planets activate your professional houses, this brings your attention to your career, work-life, or money, making you focus on your personal astrology career path.

The transit planets do this when they move through your 2nd, 6th, and 10th houses, when they aspect the planets in your 2nd, 6th, and 10th houses, and when they aspect your 2nd, 6th, and 10th house ruler.

The transit planets can also make everyone all at once focus on our astrology career path depending on what they’re doing in general.

General Spring 2021 Astrology

So, what are the transit planets doing to impact the career astrology for spring 2021? The biggest astrological event for this spring is Mercury retrograde, which occurs May 29th to June 22nd entirely in the sign of Gemini.

Mercury retrograde likes to throw anything and everything off, but it can be an excellent time for a second chance. That is double the case for this retrograde because we also have a Solar eclipse in Gemini occurring on June 10th, aligned with Mercury retrograde.

Professionally, this can mean pursuing something you tried before and want another shot at, or something you wanted to before and didn’t get to for some reason. Any old ideas and plans, ruled by Gemini, can get picked back up, dusted off, and given a go.

This most impacts Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn Risings professionally.

Jupiter moves into Pisces on May 13th, and Jupiter is the planet of expansion and opportunity. In Pisces, we can benefit from doing things that help others, connect with spiritually, or utilize our artistic/creative sides.

Intuition can be strong while Jupiter is in Pisces paired with Neptune, so let your instincts guide you to the right choices, especially during Mercury retrograde.

This impacts Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius Risings most professionally.

The planet of energy and drive, Mars, is currently in Gemini until April 23rd, so this is a good time to get plans together and make preparations for using the Mercury retrograde to your advantage. It’s a good time for decisions and gathering the information you need professionally.

Mars then moves into Cancer until June 11th, and this makes a strong foundation important. Whatever you pursue, make sure you’re building it from the ground up and have a solid foundation to build on for a lot of time to come.

This impacts Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius Risings most professionally.

Mars ends this spring period in Leo, a highly creative sign, so it’s great for any creative projects and ventures. The more you enjoy what you’re doing, the more you may want to do it, and the more you feel you’re expressing yourself creatively and getting attention for it, the more invested you can be.

This impacts Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces Risings most professionally.
