Predicting the profession of a native is quite a tricky job and is one of the most sought after fields in predictive astrology. Numerous areas and highly competitive environment, be it business, service, profession, politics, etc. and its magnitude are the areas which have charged the atmosphere, making it quite difficult for the decision makers to identify one which should be most suitable from the point of view of success and also the potentialities of the seekers. There are a number of factors that help us in arriving at a decision on this vital issue. The nature of the sign falling in the ascendant (Lagna), tenth house governing profession, second house ruling wealth,the eleventh house signifying income and the Lagna of Dasamsha (D-10) of a native. The strength of the lords of these houses and the operating planetary periods hold the key to decipher the codes. Similarly, understanding the nature of planets which become significator for profession and the planets exerting influence on these planets is necessary. I will endeavour to give certain ‘Thumb Rules’ which can be followed to identify profession and I must caution that these are not exhaustive and readers are advised to do their own research further. This is purely by Parashara method and readers are not confuse with Jaimini system. Methodology 1. Check the strength of Lagna. Strong Lagna indicates a steady and good job.
