      Do you have any planets in the 10th house?

  1. VJ says:

    I don’t have planets in the 10th house, but Aries is on the cusp.

    Jupiter in Virgo (3rd house) opposition MC in Pisces. I’m not successful, neither are my parents.

      Did anything else in the post resonate with you? Where is Mars? What kind of aspects does Jupiter receive?

      Thanks for reading :)

      • Regina says:

        My MC is also opposite my Jupiter. I could relate to some things… but most of the ones that have to do with really huge things or great success, or even recognition seem like they are impossible for me to reach. Like an utopian dream that I know deep down will never happen.

        I have my Mars sextile my Jupiter and trine my MC.

        Mars is in the 1st
        Mc in the 10th
        Jupiter in the 3rd

    Hey Michelle :) – I have the quincunx, with Jupiter at the apex of my chart’s Yod and my Midheaven as part of the base. As usual, I relate to *many* of your descriptions.

    I do want to leave the world a better place and to accomplish something meaningful, although I don’t have any illusions about the scope of my influence, which is relatively small. Good thing since I would never want to be famous. Maybe it’s because my Jupiter is conjunct both Mercury and Neptune, but I’d rather the focus be on the message and not so much about me. My personal aspirations are spiritual, with my goal being to express faith through works and to inspire and encourage others in ways they might otherwise not have considered. I’d like for my legacy to be that I challenged people to think more deeply and act more mindfully.

    Current transits are setting off these placements, as will December’s Yod. I feel it.

      Hey LB :)

      Jupiter conjunct Neptune shows lofty spiritualism, real sensitivity to moral issues … I’ve noticed that people with that conjunction often come from a religious background but choose to side with the spiritual side of religion rather than the dogmatic side.

      #
      • LB says:

        I didn’t think I came from a particularly religious background until I found out while doing genealogy research that I come from a long line of preachers – on both sides of the family (Jupiter rules my 4th.)

        #
        • AstroFix says:

          Are you using anything in particular to do the research? Is there a particular site you like?

          #
          • LB says:

            It was several years ago, but I had a lot of success using the two main ones that allow (or allowed?) access to various forums free of charge. Most people were very generous in sharing their research, since it sometimes meant discovering a new relation.

            To start, I’d recommend googling whatever last name you’re researching followed by the words “GenForum”, for instance “Smith GenForum”.

    I have Jupiter conjunct MC in Taurus and this really resonated with me! I want to be have a fashion empire like CoCo Chanel.. and I also want to be a philanthropist and freedom fighter like Dr. Martin Luther King. I have Venus in Taurus as well, and I have a Capricorn in the 5th stellium so I’ve got a lot of good placements to work with! But I’m just now figuring out how to deal with my Sun square Saturn/Uranus.. I had to build up my confidence and courage. :)

    #
    • Michelle says:

      Yes, confidence, courage and perhaps finding a blend between fitting in and going your own way – neither is “better” than the other.

      #
  6. Me says:

    Resonated quite a bit one might say – I always think of natal chart aspects as being like magnetic field alterations, altering in context of all the others (others being other chart aspects, current solar system state, will power, body state — etc (everything else definable or not))

    Is Jupiter in the tenth house the same?

    #
    • nick says:

      yes ! the midheaven is naturally ruled by the 10th house.

      your probably lucky when it comes to job positions , jobs, relationship with superiors etc etc

      maybe you have a reputation that is good warm or fun. Great for anything jupiterian. Teacher, philosopher, missionary , flight attendent , Perfect for a job that involves travel also.

      #
    • AstroFix says:

      Similar, yes. Maybe not quite as “big” if Jupiter isn’t right at the top of the chart.

  8. Hero9 says:

    What about jupiter in gemini 7 house square midheaven in Leo in house 9? What conflicts do you say the square creates? And the jupiter being retrograded in gemini ( detriment )

    #
    • AstroFix says:

      Hi hero9,

      Jupiter must be at the very beginning of Gemini and the Midheaven at the very end of Leo …what house system do you use? Equal house? there might be issues with logic versus grandstanding, curiosity versus pride, the need to relate to others versus the need to be the “big boss”

      #
  9. Kleo says:

    Jupiter in Cancer trine MC in Scorpio. I can’t believe how accurately true this is. I so want to become something big, to actually make and difference and not to live at random. I really want to accomplish something. And of course, I like to be seen as smart. Sometimes I think I’m being to full of myself, but I really feel special, I just don’t know what can I do and what are my capabilities..

    • isiscancerlilithleo says:

      My Aries Jupiter is tightly conjunct my Taurus MC on either side of the cusp and I know nothing at all about where my success lies, what field I should pursue, or where any kind of financial success lies. I feel the same as Kleo – I sometimes feel special, destined, touched by the divine. Where is the destiny that belongs to someone like that?? (Of course, with Leo Rising, that sense of superiority is not unusual in the slightest…)

    Love this… I’ve always wanted to leave a good mark on the world and was curious to what you thought about about mars in aries (5th house) mc in leo, jupiter 2nd house sagitarious, and venus in aries

    #
    • AstroFix says:

      Have fun at work; be creative and enthusiastic as you establish yourself and earn a living; be generous in giving back.

  11. crissy says:

    Sun and moon in Pisces, scorpio rising… ( I’m not sure if that makes a difference).. But I have a ton of talents and no clue what to do with them.

  16. libran says:

    I have Jupiter sextile MC, but this description doesn’t apply much to me. I’m low profile, not larger than life, my mom is not overwhelming, my dad is quite influential in his community but am not born with silver spoon thing…not into religion or philosophy or journalism, I do find law and foreign affairs interesting, but didn’t purse a career in that field.
