Debilitated Sun in Tenth House
When debilitated Sun is placed in the tenth house in a horoscope, Capricorn rises in the ascendant. Debilitated Sun is malefic in the tenth house in many cases though it may turn benefic in some cases. This may happen when Sun 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, Sun may become more benefic.
Since Sun is weak due to debilitation, it may become easy for benefic planets to add positivity to Sun. If debilitated Sun 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 Sun 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)’.

Such benefic debilitated Sun can take the native to foreign countries and he may settle abroad, if his overall horoscope is supportive. Taking an example, suppose benefic debilitated Sun is placed in the tenth house of a horoscope in Libra with Mercury. Benefic Saturn is placed in the third house in Pisces, Jupiter is placed in the eighth house in Leo, benefic Mars is placed in the twelfth house in Sagittarius and benefic Moon is placed in the ninth house in Virgo.

On the other hand, malefic debilitated Sun in the tenth house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to father, profession, finances, reputation, court cases, health, lifespan and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
In horoscopes with Capricorn ascendant, Sun rules the eighth house which deals with the overall lifespan of the native, among other things. Since Sun is weak due to debilitation, the native may witness health problems and/or reduction in lifespan. These problems may aggravate if Saturn being the lord of ascendant is weak/afflicted and Sun is influenced by malefic planet/planets through conjunction or aspects. Such malefic Sun can also render criminal tendencies to the native and he may become a criminal if the overall horoscope is supportive.
Taking an example, suppose a malefic combination of debilitated Sun, Mercury and Rahu is placed in the tenth house of a horoscope in Libra. Venus is placed in the twelfth house in Sagittarius, Ketu is placed in the fourth house in Aries, Saturn is placed in the sixth house in Gemini with malefic Jupiter, and Mars is placed in the eighth house in Leo. In this case, the native may become a criminal and he may engage in crimes related to drugs and/or violence. He may hold an important rank in a criminal organization which deals in drugs and/or in acts of extortion, contract killing or terrorism. The native may not live long and he may get killed before the age of 40, in an encounter with a law enforcing agency, or another criminal may murder him. If Moon is placed in the eighth house in Leo with Mars, the native may die before the age of 35 or 30, depending on the finer factors and running times.
