Today, 10th house lord sitting in 6th house.
So first of all, let's see what 6th house and 10th house represent -
6th house is 1st of Dushthana Houses (houses # 6, 8 and 12) and 2nd of Upachaya Houses (houses # 3, 6, 10 & 11). 6th house represents things like diseases, debts, obstacles, enemies, disputes, competitions, litigations, under privileged people, pets, daily routine life, colleagues at work place etc. One thing to remember here is that it is one of Upachaya Houses, i.e. House # 3, 6, 10 & 11. Upachaya Houses improve with time. It means any planet in these houses improves in results with age and real good result is seen from a person's 30s. Also, all the malefic planets provide very good results in Upachaya Houses but results may be seen in 30s.
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 6th house?

So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 10th house Lord in 6th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Scorpio Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 10th house with Leo sign and sits in the 6th house in the sign of Aries, where Sun is exalted. It clearly shows someone who is in Govt Job or his Father was in Govt Job. It shows that your Authority, Confidence and Ego in life develops when you deal with Govt related affairs in your daily work routine. Even if you are a Doctor or Lawyer, you will be a Govt Doctor or Public Prosecutor. It gives immense support from Govt and Father.
Moon - So it is Libra Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 10th house with Cancer sign and sits in 6th house in Pisces sign. These are people totally dedicated to service of poor, ill or under privileged people. They may be working as Medical Officers or Nurses and taking care of ill people. They may be in service of Animals too. They consider service to the mankind as their way to Spirituality. A person gets a highly spiritual mother and he may be involved in serving the elderly woman.
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 6th house in Sagittarius sign. As Sagittarius is sign of Law & Higher Education and Mars is a natural fighter, this naturally shows a Lawyer. A Lawyer who is dominating and strong-willed when dealing with Litigation. At the same time, it shows a person who is highly educated and who can motivate others through his wisdom. As Mars also rules 5th house of Education, it shows someone who works as a Motivational Speaker and motivates others to defeat their obstacles.
Aquarius Ascendant - Now if it is Aquarius Ascendant, Mars rules 3rd & 10th house and sits in 6th house in Cancer sign, where it is debilitated. If Mars is very near to its actual degree of debilitation, it shows someone who can get into legal trouble due to his actions at work environment. It shows someone doing something wrong at work and then faces the legal process which brings ill-fame to him. So, people with this position may take care of their activities.
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 6th house in Aquarius. This can show either of two things. Either this person is using his communications and counselling ability to resolve the disputes and fight for the Social Welfare as a Rights Activist or they are working in some Large Organization where Communications and Counselling is huge part of their daily work routine. They are perfect in written/oral communications and sometimes cunning too.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, then Mercury rules 7th and 10th house and sits in 6th house in Taurus. This shows a person, who uses his analytical and critical skills in Financial Sector, as Taurus is sign of Wealth & Assets. As such, they can be working for Banks and Other Financial Institutes as Finance Analyst/Adviser/Manager. As Taurus is sign of Wealth, it shows someone's wealth is coming from routine jobs. They can be in Stock Market too.
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 6th house in Capricorn sign. Venus in 6th house prompts to Service as Venus represents Service & Devotions and 6th house is under privileged people. So, they can be in service of social backward people. They can be a Veterinarian too. As Capricorn is sign of Govt, they may be helping people while working under any Govt Organization or Scheme. Venus in 6th house sometimes give disputes with Women. So, they need to be careful.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 6th house in Gemini. As Gemini is sign of Counselling/Communications and Venus also rules 5th house of Counselling, it shows that these people counsel others how to resolve their conflicts or how to reduce any chance of conflicts. It also shows someone daily work can be regarding teaching/counselling. Chances of dispute with Women are as is, so care needs to be taken.
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 6th house in Leo Sign. This is another position which can make you a Lawyer as Jupiter is the natural Karaka of Counselor. As Sagittarius is also a sign related with Law, it surely indicates a Lawyer as Jupiter goes into 6th house. As Leo sign is related with Govt and Authority, it shows someone as Govt Lawyer. As Jupiter is knowledge and wisdom, here you might end up in learning from your enemies, which is common with the profession of Lawyer.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Jupiter rules 7th & 10th house and sits in 6th house in Scorpio. This shows similar results but only addition here is that as a Lawyer or Counselor, you deal with people who are going through most troublesome and chaotic times. It also gives a great knowledge about Occult and Mystic world and shows someone who practices Occult in daily work life.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 10th house lord, Saturn in 6th house (for Aries/Taurus Ascendants respectively) again shows a person who is in Health-Care field or Law field. As Saturn itself represents illness and 6th house is diseases too, Saturn in 6th house normally creates a doctor. Another Career it can give is Lawyer if it gets connected with 10th house along with 6th house. If Saturn is in Libra for Taurus Ascendant then certainly a great career in Law as Saturn is exalted in Libra, a sign of Justice. This can even make a person a Judge. Saturn in 6th house is one of best placement for Saturn as it impacts all the Dushthana Houses, i.e. 6th, 8th and 12th house and hence limits the results of these houses. For Taurus Ascendant, Saturn rules 10th house with Aquarius sign, so it gives a Career in Large Organizations.
Rahu - If Rahu is 10th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 6th house in Libra then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Libra in 6th 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 Libra in 6th house basically shows that daily work routine certainly relates to Foreign Companies, Foreign Environment etc. It is more so because Aquarius comes into the 10th house of Career, so it can give career in Large Organizations and MNCs. This person is obsessed about Animals as Rahu turns into Venus and explodes Venus qualities. At the same time, Rahu in Libra makes a person perfectionist about Relationship. It means they seek a perfect marriage or spouse and as there is nothing as such, in many cases, they prefer to remain single then in any halfhearted relation.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 10th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 6th house in Cancer 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 separates person from the concept of as to where he is serving. It means these people are blind as to where they are working, if they are getting enough return/salary/bonus for their work. They just want to mechanically work without any thought of getting into office politics and other things. Hence, it so happens that they may not get their deserving dues in jobs. It also separates them from concepts of Competition. They are the last people who want to get into any dispute. They live a healthy life, as they are also separated from Diseases. As Ketu is in Cancer, it shows some past-life karma with Mother.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
