Today, 1st house lord sitting in 10th house.
So first of all, let's see what 1st house/Ascendant and 10th house represent -
1st house/Ascendant is your self, physique, personality, overall health, life path and head in human body 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 10th house is 3rd 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.
Now, what does it mean to have 1st house lord in 10th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 1st house/Ascendant of your horoscope is sitting in the 10th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 1st house lord in 10th house?
Its generic interpretation is that person's focus through-out life is on matters related with Career, Status, Work-Duty-Responsibility in the World, Father etc. They try their best to maintain their status and fame in society. Their life revolves around work, fame and father. It is like all other aspects of life become almost negligible.
There are few things to remember with this placement. This placement can give an indication regarding your career/work environment or status/fame in society but it will only be a prima-facie indication. A person's whole career is known on the basis of analysis of at least 8-10 things. Another thing is that as 10th house being a upachaya house gives better results in person's 30s, by that time almost all planets reach their maturity age. So, almost all planets behave well in 10th house.
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 10th house lord as 1st house lord is going in 10th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as Ascendant Lord in 10th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Leo Ascendant chart and Sun sits in the 10th house in the sign of Taurus. Clearly shows a person who is very authoritative in his Career. His personality is very much a mirror image of Father as Sun represents Father and 10th house is also of Father. By this placement, person will be an authority in his field, now he can be authority in Govt, Politics, Courts or Jails. Wherever he will be working, he will enjoy authority over others. Sun also receives directional strength in 10th house, so this person really does well in his Career. It also shows Father was kind of guiding force in Career.
Moon - So it is Cancer Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 1st house and sits in 10th house in Aries. This shows someone who is mentally very strong and go-getter type of person. This person is very much action oriented and will be ready to do whatever it takes to achieve status and society. This Moon is not too emotional, rather active mind. Moon in 10th house also shows someone who has a very strict mother and hence, father takes the responsibilities of mother too.
Mars - Mars can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aries Ascendant - So if it is Aries Ascendant, Mars rules 1st & 8th house and sits in 10th house in Capricorn sign. Here, Mars becomes exalted, so best results. This Mars shows someone wh can take any possible action to gain status in Career and Society. As Mars also rules 8th house of mysteries, accidents and secrets etc. Here, Mars may give a very rough and tough sort of career, like Army, Police or Fire Fighter. Although, they are headstrong and willing to take any challenge for work, but they will never disobey Law because Mars is exalted in the sign of Capricorn which is about law & order.
Scorpio Ascendant - Now if it is Scorpio Ascendant, Mars rules 1st & 6th house and sits in 10th house in Leo sign. As Leo is sign of Govt and a friendly sign for Mars, here again person does everything under the law to reach authority and status. As Leo is sign of Govt, it shows someone working under Govt. As Mars also rules the 6th house of obstacles, this position can show a lawyer. For both these positions of Mars, person's fame in society will be of a very disciplined and strong individual.
Mercury - Mercury also can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Mercury rules 1st & 4th houses and sits in 10th house in Pisces. Mercury gets debilitated here. Here it can give person a career which is communications oriented. This position can make someone a very good author, poet or blogger. These people have very high imagination and they love to write about all that. Mercury debilitated doesn't mean they don't communicate but it means someone who communicates about some high ideals. It is funny that people with debilitated Mercury are more best-selling authors than exalted Mercury. They can also become spiritual orators or motivational speakers.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, then Mercury rules 1st & 10th house and sits in 10th house in Gemini. Here also a career related with communications but these are very serious communications as Virgo is sign of perfection. Expect these guys to be government spokespersons, where every word has to be perfect. So, its all about serious communications now. They can be working as an authoritative figures in corporations where oral/written communications is a huge part of daily work. In both these cases, person will enjoy a buddy-buddy relation with Father.
Venus - Venus also can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is a Taurus Ascendant, Venus rules 1st & 6th house and sits in 10th house in Aquarius sign. They carry a very pleasant personality at their work place and society. They will have very cordial relation with their bosses and colleagues. For a change, these are the people who love working in corporate. They keep a very nice, pleasant image in society and work place. They like to be away from office polities and genuinely be good to everyone.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Venus rules 1st & 8th house and sits in 10th house in Cancer. Here also focus remain their career and father but now they are not too happy with the situation of either as Venus is in not so friendly sign of Cancer. So, somehow they feel that they could have done better at work and with duties towards father. In both these cases, person may meet spouse in work environment. In this case, person feels frustrated with his career till mid 30s.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 1st & 4th house and sits in 10th house in Virgo Sign. These people are seen as Guru at their work place. People come to their advice and they keep an image of a very wise person in society. As Jupiter also rules the 4th house of Mother and sits in the house of Father, here Mother takes the responsibility of being person's father and Guru. But overall, a very wise person, may even become Professor, Judge or a Guru type of person.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Jupiter rules 1st & 10th house and sits in 10th house in Sagittarius. Here, Jupiter really gets into the role of Guru as it is in its own sign of Sagittarius of higher learning. Here you can see someone who is highly spiritual or religious person. He is man who can become Dharm-Guru. They have a very spiritual personality and follow the path of religion as their duty. A real good spiritual or religious teacher is seen from this. Otherwise also, people around them will always regard them as a Guru.
Saturn - Saturn also can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as an Ascendant, Saturn in 10th house (in Libra/Scorpio respectively) shows someone who is very strict and disciplinarian type of person when it comes to career related issues. It gives restricted company of Father for various reasons. These people are workaholics and can do the same job for 18/20 hours a day. It gives delayed success in career, even if it is in its exalted sign of Libra, but gives stable and sure success after consistent hard work. A placement of super hardworking people. Mostly they end up in Career related with Law.
Rahu - If Rahu is Ascendant Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 10th house in Scorpio then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Scorpio in 10th house shows someone who has gone through some of the most unimaginable ups/downs in Career or Father's life, especially during Rahu MD/AD. Career of these people remain transformative and receives some stability only after mid 30s. At the same time, this Rahu can give great fame and career in Foreign Lands. It might even give a very unusual Career.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is Ascendant Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 10th house in Leo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. This position shows a person who is not looking for any authority. He feels isolated with the concept of being authoritative. At the same time, as Ketu represents Spirituality, their real authority is in Spiritual/Mystical field. This position also isolates person from his father, for various reasons. This person finds frustration in normal job setup.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
