Saturn in 10th House

Saturn in 10th house astrology 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.

         Power and pride are your tests in this incarnation with Saturn in your tenth house. Your self-reliance and ambition are strong, and your reputation and image are very important to you. You've a gift for business and the desire to climb the ladder of success. You're well organized, build your career methodically and deliberately, and have great perseverance in reaching your career goals and objectives. There may be no father figure in your life, or problems stemming from your dominant parent. This position is often referred to as the "Napoleonic complex," because it can signify a rise to the top followed by a fall—particularly if you've used others to gain your goals, or haven't built your foundation well.

         Some celebrities with Saturn in the tenth house are/were Muhammed Ali, Gary Busey, Anton Chekov, Bill Clinton, Copernicus, Marie Curie, Leonardo da Vinci, Leonardo DiCaprio, Emily Dickinson, Albert Einstein, T.S. Eliot, Sally Field, Vincente Fox, Dick Gregory, Adolf Hitler, John Hurt, Burl Ives, Peter Jennings, John F. Kennedy, Helmut Lohl, Malcolm X, Groucho Marx, Charlie Mingus, Francois Miitterand, Jawaharlal Nehru, Paul Newman, Peter O'Toole, Al Pacino, Pablo Picasso, Will Rogers, Eric Sevareid, Oscar Wilde, and Oprah Winfrey.

         If Saturn is within 10° of the midheaven (the tenth house cusp), then it is conjunct the tenth house cusp and much of the foregoing is even more strongly emphasized. If Saturn 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 it influence will be felt in the tenth as well as in the ninth house. The closer a ninth house Saturn 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 Saturn expresses itself primarily—and ultimately entirely—in the tenth house.

         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.
