Your career path, according to astrology

Your zodiac chart sheds light on your career path and ways of earning money. If you’re still in school, it can help you figure out which type of career may be better to lean towards. If you’re currently working, it can help you figure out if you are on the right path. And if you’re retired, it can give insight into your past, as well as tell you about possible future volunteer plans or ways of earning cash.

For this, you will need to look at your full zodiac chart. It requires your time, place, and date of birth. In order to find this, you can simply google “free birth chart” and fill in your birth information — or CLICK HERE!

For career, the tenth and second houses play key roles. The tenth house refers to work, most especially in context of your role in society — so this can also apply to volunteering. Your second house can show how you make money — which typically applies to work, but not always (ex: passive income.) In these houses, you want to pay attention to the zodiac signs and planets.

Planets in the 2nd or 10th house

You may have one, multiple, or zero planets your 2nd and 10th houses.

No planets in 2nd or 10th house does NOT mean jobless or unsuccessful. Actually, it can be a great thing. It means that your job and career path is not a main priority in your life. You will prioritize other factors, such as friends, family, your partner, your spirituality, hobbies or sports, etc. The best advice for this placement is: don’t think too hard about your career path, just do what feels right. Overall, it’s not a huge importance.

Mercury in 2nd or 10th house adds a boost to intellect and communication regarding your career path. You could be fit for the educational field, writing, public speaking, social work, or technology. Your career will likely be social or intellectual.

Venus in 2nd or 10th house adds pleasure and joy to your career path. You are likely to find a job that makes you feel good. It’s also quite possible to meet your future partner at work, or date coworkers. You would make a great fit as a nurse or caretaker. Regardless of gender, you could have a “traditionally feminine” job (but we know that gender based careers are outdated!)

Mars in 2nd or 10th house implies competition and physical activity in your career. This is common for military and war. It could also relate to sports. You will be very passionate about your job, but may be prone to fights with coworkers or bosses. Regardless of gender, you could have a “traditionally masculine” job (but we know that gender based careers are outdated!)

Jupiter in 2nd or 10th house provides great luck and wealth for your career. You may find yourself getting a “big break” out of nowhere with a sudden, massive career expansion. This placement is likely for pop stars, actors, etc. Likely, your job will take priority in your life. It could also possibly be religious or spiritual. You could be a boss or leader.

Saturn in 2nd or 10th house implies that you will have to work harder than others in order to achieve success. But with enough self-discipline, you may become very rich, later in life. You could possibly follow in the footsteps of your father. (And if you have both Jupiter and Saturn in your tenth house, this provides great balance for achieving a wealthy career without letting it take over your whole life.)

Uranus in 2nd or 10th house means that your career path will be unconventional, eccentric, and unique. You may be self-employed or start your own business. Your career path may challenge your own belief system, taking a job you never thought you’d have.

Neptune in 2nd or 10th house shows a very spiritual career. You have big dreams, many of them unrealistic — if you also have Saturn, then this can help you logically achieve these dreamy goals. You could be a psychic, a healer, or interested in alternative medicine. It’s also very common for this placement to have a career in oceanology, aquatics, marine science, etc.

Pluto in 2nd or 10th house signifies an incredibly powerful and transformative career path. You are suited for a job that challenges you — mentally, physically, and spiritually. Your career path is sure to have many unexpected twists and turns. You may likely become a boss.


My 10th house is in Libra. I currently am employed full time as an animal caretaker at a research lab. This relates to a sense of justice, because I am assuring the animals are being treated kindly and properly in an unfortunate circumstance. I have zero planets in my tenth house, which shows that my full-time job is not a huge priority in my life.

My 2nd house is in Capricorn, which shows the rigorous rules and structure I am required to follow from working in a lab. Alongside, this is a very secure and reliable position that brings a steady paycheck and benefits.

Uranus is in my 2nd house, which shows that my career is unconventional — it’s definitely a bit of a strange job, I have to say, and it does challenge my beliefs against animal rights. Along with that, I run my own business on the side, which relates to the self-employed aspect of this planet. I also have Neptune in my 2nd house, which also relates to my current side jobs — doing writing, tarot, astrology, and selling witchy products.

  1. Interesting post. I don’t have any planets in my 10th house either though my Midheaven is there in Aquarius, but my Moon and North Node in Gemini in 2nd house. Just watching a fascinating video on my north node on youtube! Feel like I need to do more study on the north node!

    1. The north node is very fascinating and I’m trying to learn more about that one! What is the YouTube channel? I’ve heard many different interpretations of north/south node. Some say it’s about past vs future, or habits vs intention, or even related to past lives.

  2. Hi there, I have Pisces 2nd house, Scorpio MC, Venus and Mercury both in 10th house in Scorpio, no planets in the 2nd house. I’m incredibly drawn to sex work but I live in a country that would scrutinize me and my family if I follow this path. What other career paths would be suitable for me?
    (I’m using whole sign, and in Vedic astrology I have a Libra MC, Aquarius 2nd house, Venus and Mercury in Libra 10H. I thought this might be helpful info as well 🙂 )

    1. I feel that you should go towards what you feel drawn to, despite scrutiny from others, there are many discreet ways to pursue sex work if you think outside of the box. That’s very fitting with Scorpio. But also, something very nontraditional involving something taboo (even if it’s not sex related) will excite you. I think that you’d be best doing something independent, unorthodox, and having a high level of privacy in regards to your profession.
