So first of all, let's see what 8th house & 10th house represent -
8th house is house of secrecy, occult knowledge, longevity, transformation, death and re-birth, In laws family, joint wealth with spouse, serving other people needs etc.
10th house represents things like Government, Father, Authority, Fame 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.
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.

So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 8th house Lord in 10th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Capricorn Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 8th house with Leo sign and sits in 10th house in Libra sign, where it is debilitated. If Sun is near the exact degree of debilitation, it shows that person's confidence and esteem goes for a real toss when he works under Govt or Authority. This is a person who must be his own Boss rather than working under other people. Boss/Authorities won't leave any chance to smash his ego. It also gives troublesome relations with Father. Sudden Events may be impacting Career and Reputation badly, like suddenly they may be reprimanded at job or they may be fired. So, it is better for them to work for own.
Moon - So it is Sagittarius Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 8th house with Cancer sign and sits in 10th house in Virgo. As 8th house relates to Emergencies & Surgeries, Moon represents taking care of others and Virgo represents Healing Activities, so it definitely shows a healer or a medicine related person. As 8th house also relates to Surgeries and Virgo is sign of details and analysis, it certainly shows a career of surgeon. It also shows that Mother's life was full of sudden events and obstacles. Overall, a very caring person.
Mars - Mars can be 8th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant - So if it is Virgo Ascendant, Mars rules 8th & 3rd house and sits in 10th house in Gemini sign. This shows a very forceful Journalist or Lawyer. They are always very forceful about their reporting or arguments. They do deep research over any subject and then they bring the truth to the world with great force. They may be working as Govt Spokesperson or Govt Advocate. Sudden Events and Arguments may spoil the relation with Father or Authorities. They will assert their individuality at their work place, which may lead to arguments and disputes.
Aries Ascendant - Now if it is Aries Ascendant, Mars rules 8th & 1st house and sits in 10th house in Capricorn sign, where it is exalted. This is an excellent position. This shows someone who is serving the Govt and works in lots of research/investigation related activities. So, this person can be a Govt Spy or Secret Investigator. This also shows someone who works for Govt in most Chaotic work conditions where Sudden Events are always part of work. So, it shows someone working in Army or Police or any other Defense Services. It also shows some sudden events impacting his work or reputation in world but person will always have the extreme will power to go through all the turmoil and come out as winner.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 8th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Mercury rules 8th & 11th houses and sits in 10th house in Leo. This shows a person who deals with lots of secretive and investigation related information of Govt. They may again be Govt Spokesperson. At the same time, this can show a very skilled and creative person. As Mercury represents skills, Leo represents Creativity and 8th house is about research, it shows someone who does lots of research over his creative skills and pursues a creative career. It can be an Occultist.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, then Mercury rules 5th and 8th house and sits in 10th house in Scorpio. This surely shows someone who is mystic or occultist and has such reputation in society. Mercury is karaka of Astrology, 8th house relates to Occult and Research, 10th house is Career and Scorpio again shows Occult and Mysticism. So, if we join all together it shows someone who is an Astrologer and brings the information related to occult and mysticism to world at large through his research, counselling or writings.
Venus - Venus also can be 8th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Venus rules 8th & 1st house and sits in 10th house in Cancer sign. This is another position which shows a care giver. Venus is service and devotion and Cancer is Nourishing and taking care of others. As I said, 8th house always relates to Emergencies. So, it can be someone who helps people in emergencies. Now, it can be through direct services or through counselling. At the same time, as Venus represents Relations, it shows someone who is into work of counselling people who are going through relationship problems.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Venus rules 3rd & 8th house and sits in 10th house in Sagittarius. This shows a person who is into deep love of Philosophy and Higher Education. They research a lot about different Philosophies of World. They can be seen as Professors or Gurus in Society. There is a natural love towards higher education in these people. These people cant be impressed by beauty and money. Show them how much you know about the world. With both positions of Venus, a man may marry someone of same work environment.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 8th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Jupiter rules 8th & 11th house and sits in 10th house in Aquarius Sign. This shows someone who is into deep research work. They can be in Scientific Research or Occultist Research or they can be trying to look Occult from a Scientific point of view. They will be regarded as Scientists or Gurus in Society. Or else they will be working in Large Organisations in the field of Finance. They may be financial analysts etc working in MNCs.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 5th & 8th house and sits in 10th house in Taurus. This surely shows someone in Finance field. 8th house is other people money, Jupiter is Wealth and Guru, Taurus is Wealth and Assets. So, it shows someone who does research on Wealth and Assets related matters and help people. So, it is someone like Finance and Wealth Planner or Manager or Financial Advisers for others. In both scenarios, person will be seen as a Guru and in both scenarios, a girl may meet her to-be husband at her work place.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 8th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 8th house lord, Saturn in 10th house (for Gemini/Cancer Ascendants respectively) surely indicates that person had a distant relation with father, for various reasons. It shows someone reaching authoritative position in life only after sheer hard work and dedication. Nothing comes easy in life where Saturn is placed. It shows person had real struggle with any authority figure in life. Even a watchman will show him attitude when time is wrong. This shows someone making a career in Law or Govt Administration. They can also become a Judge but all good things related with Saturn comes when they are in their 30s. Before that it is only a struggle to find out why everyone around them has so much attitude over their authority? This situation can be even worse for Cancer Ascendant as Saturn will be debilitated in Aries. Some serious issues with Father and Authority. It will be better if person works for himself rather than any authority. In marriage matters, the marriage should be delayed till 30s at least. Any relation before that will end up as burden and responsibility. Married life in true meanings start after mid 30s. Till then, marriage is more of a restrictive relation and responsibility.
Rahu - If Rahu is 8th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 10th house in Aries then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Aries in 10th house will transform Rahu as Mars as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. This shows a person who is immensely courageous, sometimes even audacious. This also suggests that person can even get violent when angry. This shows a very weird and unusual relation with father. Work environment will be Foreign, like working for foreign companies or person will be in a very unique career, which rarely people pursue. Again shows that individual is involved in research work. If Rahu is in Ashwini Nakshatra, it shows someone in Medical Career.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 8th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 10th house in Capricorn then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person/spouse from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here person/spouse won't be willing to work under any authority or Govt. Working in Corporate is like worst dream for them. They are better of working for own. Relationship with Father is not to talk about. Either they are physically separated from Father or they never find that mental connect with him. It is better for these people to either work for themselves and be their own authority or follow a spiritual career. They are the last people who are looking for any authority over any other.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
