So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 10th house Lord in 1st house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Scorpio Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 10th house with Leo sign and sits in the 1st house in the sign of Scorpio. This shows a person who may have some chaotic or troublesome work environment. It is because Scorpio is sign of sudden changes. So, they may be working in a place where nothing is certain. This also shows a person who has controlling nature. He likes to have control over his colleagues, so he may not be very popular at his work. It also shows some turbulence in relation with Father. Scorpio is a sign which represents Transformation, so here Career and relation with Father goes through real turbulent changes in life.
Moon - So it is Libra Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 10th house with Cancer sign and sits in 1st house in Libra. These people are emotionally attached with their Work and Father. Their mind is always at work. They are always thinking about their work. Father has all the Motherly qualities. Parents shape the life path and personality of native. Being with Parents bring their mental balance. Being with their work leads to peace of mind. It shows that person is either in health care field or in a very creative career. Person finds real attachment towards Parents.
Mars - Mars can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - So if it is Cancer Ascendant, Mars rules 10th & 5th house and sits in 1st house in Cancer sign, where it is debilitated. If Mars is nearby the exact degree of Debilitation, then it shows someone who always looks to dominate his colleagues. They are kind of Bully at Workplace. Relation with Father is not much to talk about. They need to learn how to accommodate with others. Debilitated Mars is negative Mars energy. They also Fight but they don't know how to fight?
Aquarius Ascendant - Now if it is Aquarius Ascendant, Mars rules 3rd & 10th house and sits in 1st house in Aquarius sign. Here, Mars is in enemy sign, hence we can see the similar problems here. It is another position where person feel frustrated at his workplace. He doesn't keep cordial relations with colleagues and bosses. In both these positions, as Mars is aspecting 4th and 7th house, it shows someone taking grudges of his work and throwing over home and spouse. So, this situation can be bad, if not handled with caution.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Mercury rules 10th & 1st houses and sits in 1st house in Virgo, where it is exalted. This shows a person who is in work environment related with communications. Communications are going to be huge part of their work. They can be Entrepreneurs too. They are very detailed oriented and perfectionist at work. They reach high status in career, specially in corporate. At times, they are very clever and even cunning with the way they speak or write. They can be Analysis or Accounting related work too.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, then Mercury rules 7th and 10th house and sits in 1st house in Sagittarius. This shows someone dedicated towards higher education through his career. As Sagittarius is sign of Higher Education, Philosophy etc and Mercury is planet of Communications, it surely shows someone who is Professor, Teacher or Preacher. They take the analytical approach of Virgo from 10th house and apply it on 1st house in Sagittarius. So, surely shows a highly learned person and quite a preacher.
Venus - Venus also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Venus rules 10th & 3rd house and sits in 1st house in Leo sign. Venus in 1st house for any sign shows a highly beautiful and pleasant looking person. Here is the person who wants to keep beautiful relation with everyone at workplace to gain in life. So, their motive may not be to do good but to gain good. They will be very cordial with anyone in authority, so that they can reach authority. So, this Venus is not among the most genuine one. Venus in Leo are always hungry for a materialistic life and here it becomes much more evident as it rules the 10th house of work and sits in the 1st house of life path and personality.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 1st house in Capricorn. Here, Venus is in friendly sign. These people love to be in Authority as Capricorn is sign of Authority. They like to keep connections with people in Authority positions, either in Govt or people like Boss, and gain from them. They can pursue a creative career as Venus also rules 5th house of creativity and sits in Ascendant which makes them very creative but whatever they do, they always love to be in authority and focus. This person can gain a lot from people in authority or Govt. In both positions of Venus, for a guy it means that he is meeting his future wife at his work place.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Jupiter rules 10th & 1st house and sits in 1st house in Pisces Sign. Another position which shows a very highly learned and spiritual person. Religion or Spirituality, they are master at both. Basically, this shows a highly learned spiritual guru at work but if anyhow this person ends up in a routine job, there also they will be considered as Guru. People will always ask them for advice. It will always be beneficial for them to follow a path of Knowledge & Spirituality as Career.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Jupiter rules 7th & 10th house and sits in 1st house in Gemini. Similar things can be seen here but as Gemini is not so friendly towards Jupiter, the intensity of results will be less. This shows a highly learned person who is more into communicating and preaching his immense knowledge. So, we can see a Preacher or a Professor/Teacher from this position. Gemini is sign of collection and communication of information. So, Jupiter here does both the things. Person 1st collects information and then communicates it. Now, a girl will meet her future husband at work place.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 10th house lord, Saturn in 1st house (for Aries/Taurus Ascendants respectively) shows that person deals with lots of obstacles in finding the life path and right career. He will have to go through lots of hardships in finding his right life path. He will get success only when he puts his best effort. Normally, they get success only after mid 30s. They always have this sense of under achievement in their life. In this position, person has a very serious outlook towards life. They always want to be in discipline and keep everyone in order. For Aries Ascendants, Saturn is debilitated. So, the struggle to find the right path becomes much more difficult/stressful till mid 30s. As Saturn aspects 7th house, Marriage should be delayed and person will get a spouse who will bring responsibility, serious outlook and focus in person's life. Here relationship is not about Bollywood Romance but real serious stuff like burdens of marriage. Romance takes a back seat here. They are not one of those fun loving people. Life becomes easier after mid 30s.
Rahu - If Rahu is 10th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 1st house in Taurus then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Taurus in 1st house will transform Rahu as Venus as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Taurus in 1st house basically shows that person is highly rich. They are one of those filthy rich people. It shows someone gaining a lot from his career at corporate or foreign sources. They can have a secret source of income. But as Rahu represents illusion, this also can show a person who has a very illusive personality. You can never know truth about this person, as actually they themselves don't know about themselves.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 10th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 1st house in Aquarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it actually separates person from himself, which means these people have lack of self-value or self-worth. They feel that other people are more blessed than them. They need a mentor on daily basis to remind them how blessed they are. At the same time, it shows someone who is a master mystic and who has high intuition powers. It is so important for them to do meditation to reach their true life path. Ketu in Aquarius shows a person who is very scientific minded and does a lot of scientific research.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
