God made everyone equal. There is no difference between the capabilities of men and women. However, women need to prove themselves at their workplace. Why do women always need to take a back seat from men at work? But some women do break this glass ceiling and come out with flying colours in their career. A good astrologer can analyse a woman’s career horoscope and define the success they will achieve in their career life.
In Vedic astrology one can define career by a number of factors namely –
- Houses - the important houses to check for career are the 1st and 10th. The first house or lagnesh is the native herself. If there are good planets placed in your lagna without the influence of malefics then the person is strong and intelligent. This does indicate if the native will be successful in her career or not. Also the lord of lagna if placed in Kendra or trikon brings good luck to the native. The 10th house is the house of karma and is most closely connected with career. It shows your professional life and if it has good planets placed then the native will certainly have a good career. Influence of malefics on the 10th house can induce delays or obstacles to one’s career. Planets placed here or the lord of this house indicates the type of career suitable to the native also.
- Planets - the main analysis is required for the luminaries - sun and moon. The sun represents atma and moon our mind. If a woman makes up her mind to do something then she can move mountains and if her soul is pure and ethical then she will achieve heights. Sun is considered very strong in the 10th house as it gets directional strength and such a native is very strong and can have a career in politics. A strong moon can give you the power of crossing all hurdles and rise above all the negativity.
- Sign - the rising sign or lagna says a lot about a woman’s characteristics and can give a direction to the type of career suitable to you. You need to talk to an astrologer to know your rising sign and it’s qualities.
