How Astrology Finds Out Your True calling
As it is with every other aspect, in eastern astrology, your true calling is determined by the analysis of your birth chart or natal chart. In your natal chart, there are 12 houses with each houses defining a different aspect of your life, and the 10th house of the chart is used to identify what your true calling in life is.
Each house has its lord and so does the 10th house. The lord of 10th house is used to determine what your calling is going to be in life. However, various things are taken into account before giving an accurate description as to what your true calling is.
Aside from the lord of the 10th house, the planet that is occupying the 10th house is also taken into factor. The significator planet also affects as to what your true calling is. Furthermore, the dignity of the significator planet and the occupying planet is also taken into account.
The planets and their influence in the 10th house are:
These are the generalization of what could be your life’s true calling. For example, if Jupiter is the lord or the significator of your 10th house, it means that your calling is philosophical. You may find your life calling related to philosophical works which could include anything from being a preacher to a social worker.
Sometimes you may have the influence of two planets in the 10th house. Such as the influence of Jupiter and Ketu which means that you are both philosophical and innovative but the combination of these two planets leads to a completely different life calling as it suggests that you are more suited towards journalism.
The 3rd house is also taken into relation with the 10th house to determine if you shall be able to achieve your true calling or not. The 3rd house determines whether you shall be able to find your true calling and acknowledge it or not. It is also taken into account to determine whether you shall make your true calling into your career or not.
It is only after all of the various planetary position and influence’s have been taken into account, that one can find what your true calling in life is.
To give you more details about reading the natal chart to find your true calling, here is a case study on Donald Trump who is currently the president of one of the most developed countries in the world.
The analysis of Trump’s natal chart shows Venus as the lord of the 10th house of his chart which supports for fame and luxury. Venus as the lord of the 10th house also suggests that he could be fascinated with entertainment industry with him having the quality to be a good entertainer himself.
Mercury supports him in terms of financial success in life. It is also the reason that he was able to become a business mogul and make a name for himself in the business world as an entrepreneur. Venus resides in the 12th house and is conjunct with Saturn. This is why he is unable to make a prolonged career in the entertainment business despite making an effort to make it in the industry.
Furthermore, Sun and Rahu have formed an eclipse in his chart which suggests that he may not be able to identify or acknowledge what his true calling in life is. Rahu is residing in the 1st house of his chart while the lord of 1st house Sun is in the 10th house. It suggests that he thrives in social science and politics but will be a subject matter of controversies.
The influence of Sankata in his chart suggests that he shall be late to figure out his true calling in life. His chart shows the past event in 1998 he came under the influence of Rahu and Sun thus he was able to get struck by the idea of getting into politics. The idea was further solidified in 2016 when he was under the influence of Mercury and Rahu which led him into politics to eventually become the president of the country.
This is a case study of how various factors come into play when determining what a person’s true calling is in life. However, the driving factor to determine one’s calling is through the reading of the 10th house and the planets that influence it.
