Debilitated Saturn in Tenth House
When debilitated Saturn is placed in the tenth house in a horoscope, Cancer rises in the ascendant. Debilitated Saturn is malefic in the tenth house in many cases though it may turn benefic in some cases. This may happen when Saturn is influenced by benefic planets, such as through conjunction and/or aspects. As the number of benefic planets and the strengths of such planets increase, Saturn may become more benefic.
Since Saturn is weak due to debilitation, it may become easy for benefic planets to add positivity to Saturn. If debilitated Saturn is influenced by one or more than one benefic planet in the tenth house, it may turn significantly or highly benefic. Apart from that, the overall theme of horoscope having such debilitated Saturn can also turn it benefic in some cases, when such theme is benefic. The concept of malefic planets turning benefic due to influences of benefic planets has been explained in Manglik Dosh section of the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh (Revised Edition)’.
Let’s look at some results which may be given by debilitated Saturn in the tenth house when it is benefic. Such benefic debilitated Saturn can bless the native with good results related to marriage, husband, wife, profession, finances, reputation, fame, authority, recognition, status and several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Such debilitated Saturn can bless the native with a post of authority in government. Hence the native may achieve success as a police officer, army officer, air force officer, naval officer, fire-fighting officer, revenue officer, judge, administrative officer, foreign services officer, education officer, medical officer, scientist, engineer, telecom officer, information and broadcast officer, aviation officer, transport officer, railway officer, politician or some other type of professional, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Taking an example, suppose debilitated Saturn is placed in the tenth house of a horoscope in Aries with benefic exalted Sun. Exalted Jupiter is placed in the first house in Cancer, benefic exalted Rahu is placed in the third house in Virgo, benefic exalted Ketu is placed in the ninth house in Pisces, benefic Venus is placed in the eleventh house in Taurus and benefic exalted Mars is placed in the seventh house in Capricorn. Benefic Mars may form Ruchaka Yoga in the seventh house. In this case, the native may become a politician. He may engage in politics after the age of 25 and he may witness good amount of success, fame, recognition and authority. The native may win public elections after the age of 30 or 35, and he may become a member of legislative assembly of a state or the parliament of his country, more than once in his life. If the finer factors and running times are supportive, the native may become a minister in state government.
If debilitated Mercury is placed in the ninth house in Pisces with Ketu, and benefic Moon is placed in the first house in Cancer with Jupiter, the equation may become better. Moon may transfer a lot of positive energy to partly malefic Jupiter, and Mars may also transfer a lot of positive energy to these planets from the seventh house, through direct aspect. Hence the overall combination in the first house may turn benefic. Therefore, Jupiter may form Hamsa Yoga whereas Moon and Jupiter may form Chandra Mangal Yoga in the first house. The concept of various planets exhibiting tendencies to be benefic or malefic on the basis of the houses they rule in a horoscope has been explained in the chapter ‘Gemstones for House Lords’ of the book ‘Gemstones: Magic or Science? (Revised Edition)’.
In this case, the native may win several public elections and he may become minister in the government, many times in his life. If the finer factors and running times are supportive, he may become the chief minister of a state or he may hold an important ministry in the national government, more than once in his life. If the native becomes a minister, he may handle the ministry of health, defence, law or home affairs. He may get married to a woman who may be a doctor or teacher, and he may enjoy a good marriage, with occasional problems.
Such debilitated Saturn can help the native achieve success as a doctor, engineer, IT professional, scientist, lawyer, actor, singer, dancer, musician, writer, fashion designer, interior designer, web developer, video game developer, architect, sportsman, banker, astrologer, spiritual guru, religious guru, tantric, psychic, healer, numerologist, vastu expert, tarot reader, palmist, professional dealing in finance industry, stock market, IT, software, computers, education, media, movie, television, radio, social media, investment, real estate, liquor, casino, tobacco, hotel, airline, travel, sports, arms, pharmaceutical, medical, chemical, steel, automobile industry or some other professional, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Apart from these, benefic debilitated Saturn in the tenth house of horoscope can bless the native with several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
On the other hand, malefic debilitated Saturn in the tenth house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to profession, finances, reputation, litigations, court cases, health, lifespan, marriage, husband, wife and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Such debilitated Saturn can trouble the native with various types of problems through or related to his profession. It can also trouble him with delay in marriage, disturbances in marriage and/or one or more failed marriages. Taking an example, suppose malefic debilitated Saturn is placed in the tenth house of a horoscope in Aries with Jupiter. Benefic Venus is placed in the sixth house in Sagittarius with malefic Rahu, malefic Ketu is placed in the twelfth house in Gemini with benefic Mars, and benefic debilitated Sun is placed in the fourth house in Libra. In this case, the native may witness problems related to profession as well as marriage. He may not find a permanent profession till the age of 35 or 40. He may only get temporary jobs and he may have to remain jobless for periods of more than 6 months, many times in his life. The native may witness serious disturbances in his first marriage, it may fail and the native may settle in this second marriage.
If malefic Mercury is placed in the fourth house in Libra with Sun, and Moon is placed in the first house in Cancer, the equation may become more troublesome. In this case, the native may not find a permanent job throughout his life. He may only find temporary jobs and he may remain jobless for periods of more than one year, many times in his life. The native may witness two or three failed marriages. The first wife of native may die whereas his second marriage may fail because of an extramarital affair of the native or his wife.
