Today, 10th house lord sitting in 4th house.
So first of all, let's see what 4th house and 10th house represent -
4th house represents your home, home environment, homeland, mother, nourishment, childhood friends, peace of mind, conveniences, intuition etc.
10th house represents things like Government, Father, Authority, Fame, Work Environment etc. Here, Authority should not be understood in literal sense, like someone got a Government job or became a Manager or CEO of a Firm. Here Authority means doing any work with complete perfection and your opinion matters when comes to making any decision related to that work, so even a good Hacker can be a person of authority as he is master of that particular work. 10th house is one of the houses normally checked for Career/Work/Duty in Life.
Now, what does it mean to have 10th house lord sitting in 4th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 10th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 4th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 10th house lord sitting in 4th house?
This is anther position which can make person a Businessman. This position basically shows that person's work environment is coming into his home environment and impacting it. So, your work is coming to your home, you don't need to go out for it, which means very much an entrepreneur type of person. It also means that your work has become home, means you spend so much time at your work that it is like a home for you. It also means that your Father is now taking up the role of Mother, it means that Father has all the Motherly traits. with this position, Career of person is strong as every planet will aspect back at 10th house and protects/guards/strengthens its own house. Overall, a person who makes his work environment a home environment.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 4th house lord as 10th house lord is going in 4th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 10th house Lord in 4th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Scorpio Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 10th house with Leo sign and sits in the 4th house in the sign of Aquarius. This is a position where Father may be absent in life for various reasons because Sun is in enemy sign of Saturn and it loses its directional strength in 4th house. So, it might be that Father is always away due to work and unable to give time. This impacts the confidence of the person. This person gets his confidence when he does something with higher purpose in life for social welfare. His Career would be all about working for some higher cause.
Moon - So it is Libra Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 10th house with Cancer sign and sits in 4th house in Capricorn. Now, Moon is in Saturn ruled sign. It shows parents were very strict with person which impacted him psychologically. It also shows that person is emotionally attached with his work, his work involves dealing with elderly ladies and taking care of them. So, this position can show someone in medical/nursing field or working in childcare. This shows that parents were strict as they wanted child to get into an authoritative position.
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 4th house in Libra sign. This position shows someone who can be very good and active with real estate business but when it comes to family life, he might just vent his anger & frustration of his work at his home. As Mars is in the sign of Libra, relations get hurt due to this. Similarly, relation with Mother gets stressed due to malefic nature of Mars. They impose their individuality at home and behave like a military general.
Aquarius Ascendant - Now if it is Aquarius Ascendant, Mars rules 3rd & 10th house and sits in 4th house in Taurus sign. We can see similar results here as again there is energy exchange between Mars and Venus. Additionally, this person can earn a lot from Real Estate as Mars is in the sign of Taurus, which relates to Wealth and Assets. So, it shows person is gaining a lot due to his actions in 4th house related matters, i.e.real estate.
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 4th house in Sagittarius. Mercury is Counselor/Teacher & Sagittarius is Higher Learning, Religion & Philosophy. So, this shows someone working in education field from his home or private office. As Sagittarius is also sign of Ancient Texts and Mercury represents Astrology, this can make a very good Astrologer. Home Environment is filled with communications related with Philosophy and Religions.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, then Mercury rules 7th and 10th house and sits in 4th house in Pisces, where it is debilitated. Here, Religion is replaced with Spirituality. So, this person is a very good Spiritual Counselor working from his home or private office. He can also become a very good & imaginative writer. It is funny to see that how a debilitated Mercury actually makes some of the all time best-selling authors, so I never take debilitated Mercury too seriously.
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 4th house in Scorpio sign. This also shows a definite love towards Occult & Mysticism, so this again can make a very good Astrologer. But Venus in Scorpio is a turbulent place for relationship as their love life goes through a roller-coaster ride. They go through few break-ups before they finally settle in life. So, they should be very careful about choosing the person who they are in relation with.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 4th house in Aries. Again there is energy exchange between Mars and Venus, so again it is not an ideal position for relationship but it is not bad also. Aries is sign of individuality, so here relations can get hurt when person asserts his individuality in matters of wealth and property, as it hits other person's ego. In both positions of Venus, person deals with ladies more in his work. Even his business would be related with female products.
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 4th house in Gemini Sign. As Jupiter and Mercury are again exchanging energies and both are counselors/teachers, this is one more position where a person can be a Teacher/Counselor from his home environment or private office. Jupiter is taking the energy of Sagittarius (Higher Education, Philosophy etc) and bring it to the sign of Communications, i.e. Gemini. So, great Teachers and Counselors can be seen fromthis position.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Jupiter rules 7th & 10th house and sits in 4th house in Virgo. This time Philosophy and Education gets replaced by Spirituality. So, these people are seen as Spiritual Counselors/Teachers in Society. At the same time, person will have a very analytical/critical approach towards religions and beliefs. He will study different religions and analyse good/bad sides of every religion. Both positions of Jupiter will give person a huge home.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 10th house lord, Saturn in 4th house (for Aries/Taurus Ascendants respectively) shows that Mother was strict and disciplined lady. There was an Army like environment at home. It gives a distant or stressful relation from Mother, where both sides want to pull each other on their way. They may even be taken away from home and mother in early life. This is another position where person takes the frustration and stress of work and blows it out at home. This makes home environment stressful. As they were brought up this way by their parents, they know only this way to react. Things improve with home, education and mother after mid 30s when Saturn matures.
Rahu - If Rahu is 10th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 4th house in Leo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Leo in 4th house will transform Rahu as Sun 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 Leo in 4th house basically shows a weird relation with Mother. It can be any type of unusual-ness, like Mother can be a foreigner, Mother can be a Foster one etc. Home environment is very unusual, may be person has home in foreign lands. As Rahu remains the most malefic planet, it certainly shows some weird or unusual events happening inside home. Rahu in Leo makes a person highly creative and look for worldly fame.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 10th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 4th house in Taurus 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 as Ketu is in 4th house the relation with mother goes for a real toss. These people are either physically separated from their mother or they feel a mental separation always. They always feel that their mother is unable to understand their point of view or vice versa. They feel that their mother was unfair to them. They may not buy a property in their own name if they want to reside in it. At the same time, this position gives high intuition powers. This position is one of Moksha Margi position, means these people can get enlightenment and liberation if they make effort. Ketu in Taurus means that person is not too much about hoarding wealth and hence wealth comes easily to them. It won't be a surprise if they spend their whole life away from their hometown.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
