Moon in 10th House

Moon in 10th house 3D model

The tenth house represents our ability (or lack thereof) to establish ourselves in and contribute to the outside world: our social image. It rules role models, guides and authority figures that have assisted us in exteriorizing ourselves in the world. Here is our career or profession, the dominant parent who guided us into the world, and our orientation toward society based on his or her example. Here are people in power over us (such as bosses and employers), our honor and reputation, and how we play out these roles in relation to others (our being a father, guide, or disciplinary figure). Planets in the tenth house show by the houses they rule which areas in our life depend on our reputation or professional role for the fulfillment of their needs. Many planets here indicate a need to achieve and be recognized as an important person, a strong father orientation, or to have others dependent on us.

With the Moon in the tenth house you have natural insight and understanding as to what the public wants, and would do well working for it or other Moon-ruled careers such as hotel, restaurant or dairy work, or more generally with land, food, children, animals or the ocean. You are ambitious and need to succeed in your own and others' eyes, and are very sensitive to what others think when it comes to your public image. If the Moon is well aspected, your career will get the encouragement and support you so desire. But both it and your success will go through many phases, just as the Moon does. Because of the Moon's watery nature, emotional mastery, self-control, and projecting yourself beyond your own interests are keys to worldly success for you. You may begin your career when very young, as well as receive support from your mother or the women in your life. You look to your work for nurturance and encouragement.

Some world-famous people with Moon in the tenth house are/were Lauren Bacall, Beau Bridges, Yul Brunner, Nicolas Cage, Joseph Campbell, Michael Crichton, Doris Day, John Denver, John Derek, Robert Downey Jr., Bobby Fischer, Harrison Ford, Mohandes Gandhi, Bill Gates, Ruth Gordon, Marvin Hagler, Joseph Haydn, Naomi Judd, Frida Kahlo, Carole Kane, Kris Kristofferson, Vivien Leigh, Harpo Marx, Joni Mitchell, Joe Montana, Olivia Newton-John, Stevie Nicks, Brigitte Nielsen, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Marquis de Sade, James Spader, Sly Stallone, Harry Dean Stanton, Ben Stiller, Meryl Streep, Lily Tomlin, Lana Turner, Raquel Welch, Steve Wozniak, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Ron Ziegler.

If the Moon is within 12° of the midheaven it is said to be conjunct the tenth house cusp, and much of the foregoing is even more true. If the Moon is in the ninth house AND within 4° or 5° of the midheaven, then it is said to be on the "dark side" of the tenth house, and its influence will be felt in the tenth as well as in the ninth house. The closer a ninth house Moon is to the midheaven, the more it will be interpreted as though it were in the tenth house; when less than 3° from the midheaven, a ninth house Moon expresses itself primarily—and ultimately entirely—through the tenth house.

Astronomically speaking, the tenth house is that one-twelfth sector of the local sky counter-clockwise from the Midheaven (see above picture) occupied by planets two hours before they culminate.
