The House Of Our Social Status
The Tenth House in an astrological birth chart is also known as the House of Vocation or House of Social Status. This house rules the social role we play in society as a whole, including our authority and how we use it to influence those around us. It is ruled by the zodiac Capricorn and its ruler Saturn.
Like the zodiac Capricorn, what is important to understand is that the tenth house is about you being in charge of your role in the material plane. This involves our profession, promotion, business or social activities and even matters relating to fame.
Our Career & Contribution
In fact, it is here where we decide how to manifest our ambition, goals and dreams. This isn’t just a random job, but the life work that will help you transform into your complete being. This house is in charge of how we use our gifts to influence the world, how we see ourselves concerning it, and how society sees us.
In addition, this house also can refer to a dominating parent., a teacher, or any authority figure in your life. This house can be referred to research our employers, rules, and any organizations that have authority over us.
Influence & Power Leading Us Inward
This relationship between the self and the society we are of service to is important, as one cannot exist and create change in a vacuum. The acknowledgement of the world around us, helps us decide not only our role but is an exploration of the gratification we get when we fulfil that role. This house explores our relationship to this gratification and our journey towards it, as we discover truly what a social status is, and what it means to us.
In the end, this house also contains the spiritual lesson in realizing what true status is and what it would entail as a result of the earlier lessons learnt by career, reputation, worldly success and public recognition.
