Sun in 10th House: How It Shapes Your Destiny and Personality

This placement of the Sun makes people work hard for their objectives and to want to reach a certain status because power gives them a real high.

Sun in 10th house

Natives having the Sun in the tenth house want fame, to live an honorable life and they sometimes get involved in scandals. They’re determined to have a position of power and authority, not getting bothered by the responsibility this thing would imply.

They’re usually politicians, dignified army people or any other role that gives them power. Being good examples for others because they’re motivated to make a name for themselves, it’s very likely they will manage to build a very good reputation.

Sun in 10th House summary:

  • Strengths: Responsible, sensual and hardworking;
  • Challenges: Superficial, tyrannical and vain;
  • Advice: They need to learn to balance career and personal life;
  • Celebrities: Albert Einstein, Napoleon I, Al Pacino, Christina Aguilera.

Only a few Sun in 10th house people remain in obscurity because these natives have a special need to be respected and appreciated in society. It’s like they’ve been born for nobility and for inspiring others to be greater people.

Beyond ambitious

People with the Sun in the tenth house like to work hard for their goals, success and feeling of accomplishment because power is in their blood.

They hate taking orders and have a need to be the ones with authority at work. It’s important for them to evolve in a career where they’re the ones who manage, not those being managed.

These people should deal with the fact that they’re ambitious, but not create a fake image of themselves and try to act as if they have a higher position than they actually do.

Sun in 10th house natives are determined to succeed and most of them will, but not until their thirties or even a little bit later.

They may have problems at home because they’re always putting career first and are too ambitious about their professional life rather than the family one.

These individuals have all that it takes to be great leaders, even if others see them as arrogant and tyrannical.

The 10th house rules over recognition from the public, the incapacity to take orders and the need to be in control of things.

While the Sun can be unusual when it comes to career, natives having it in their 10th house are thirsty for the attention of their public and have the ability to succeed at any career they may choose.

It doesn’t matter their profession, their Sun in the 10th house will be at peace if they’re the ones who pull the ropes and everyone admires them for being such hard workers.

Relating to the public image, the house just mentioned makes people with their Sun in it very aware of how others perceive them.

These people are very ambitious to obtain all the respect in the world, whether they’re CEOs or just starting at a job.

As said before, many of them are politicians, so power is another thing they’ll certainly struggle to get their hands on.

However, they should be careful not to become obsessed with it because a life that is only centered on self-image and power is superficial and not in any way satisfying.

The positives

Sun in 10th house individuals are driven to have as many achievements as possible, from a very young age.

They’re hard workers and strong characters who can overcome any obstacle, no matter how difficult.

These people are recognized by the public as responsible and determined to succeed individuals. It’s important they learn how to relax and create a balance between their professional and personal lives.

Having a good time while also being successful is possible if they become more willing to also play from time to time.

More focused on what’s happening outside their environment and on asserting what their main qualities are, they will use everything they know to obtain a high social position and to get acknowledged at work.

The Sun in the 10th house motivates them to have a strong influence and to get recognized while they’re also satisfying their thirst for power and make their dreams come true.

This means they will fight for a good career and a good place in the society, usually managing to obtain a status where they have many responsibilities and get to be recognized by others.

The placement of the Sun in the 10th house influences them to want to put their talents to use and to be better than the crowd, also to lead rather than to follow.

Everything meant to help them advance in their career will fascinate them. They may have an identity that is highly influenced by their job and other things that brought them success or helped them attain their goals.

Usually involved in public matters such as the ones relating to politics and speaking for the masses, these will be of the utmost importance for them.

If they won’t have the opportunity to be participants in the public life, they will identify themselves as someone who does, while secretly dreaming to have important people’s roles.

They really don’t like being private and alone because this limits their opportunities to become successful and achieve many things in life.

It’s like something is pressuring them to succeed and to become someone whom they’re proud of, often seeming that success and achievements are life-and-death matters to them.

That’s why they’ll always have high goals and work hard to achieve them. It’s more likely for them to go to a job that allows anyone to advance rather than a place where there isn’t too much room for climbing the ladder, like in bartending.

They really want to be appreciated and admired for their efforts because this is what builds up their self-esteem. Their goals will be precise and their approach to achieve them methodical.

These natives are the incarnation of professional success, all the negative aspects in their chart being sometimes too difficult to counteract. But usually, they’re composed, proud of themselves, authoritative and charismatic people whom others respect and even admire, no matter how reserved and shy they may seem.

It may seem for many that these individuals don’t even make an effort to advance in their career because they’re all the time in the right place, at the perfect moment.

Dignifying and honorable, natives having their Sun in the 10th house are usually respected and even an example for others.

Usually in leadership positions, as if their Sun would be in the 1st House, they hate being commanded and second place.

It’s like all the ambition in the world has gathered in them, so their goals will be reached more or less easily, depending on how difficult these may be.

It’s important for them to have ambitions, yet they should pay attention because a rapid professional evolution can also bring them many enemies.

Not that they shouldn’t chase their dreams anymore, they should just be more aware that some of their colleagues may try to impede them from succeeding.

The negatives

The Sun in 10th house individuals tend to identify themselves with what they’ve accomplished in life. If they won’t realize they’re more than the sum of their successes, they will all the time believe only career is important.

Their profession may also be a big part of their identity, making them feel very proud if it’s a noble one and they have managed to get recognized for being good at it.

If they haven’t achieved that much at work, they will think less of themselves, but still have their work done in a perfect way.

If the Sun in the 10th house is afflicted, the natives with this placement may be tyrannical and abuse their power in order to deal with their insecurities.

It’s also possible they’ll work around the rules and step on others to get where they want, causing Saturn to become angry and to remind them through its negative influence that they should be more honorable.

The fact that they want success may have something to do with their kept-away insecurity, but the Sun’s energy would have them overcoming this issue and become more stable, able to find their center and also turning their assertive or exploiting ways into a need to cooperate and make things better for everyone.

If insecure, they may feel only professional success can save them. As they appreciate themselves based only on what’s not all the time in their control, they may feel not worthy when their boss doesn’t give them the position that they’re working so hard for.

In this situation, they may push themselves to the extreme, until feeling there’s only emptiness in their life. Just success makes them feel authentic and happy, this being sometimes problematic when working with others.

Another way through which their insecurity expresses itself is when they become so intimidated by their need to be the best that they no longer know what standards should try to work by and thus, fail all the time.

This means they’d start having a low self-esteem and no matter how much they may try, anxiety and stress would be the only ones ruling over them.

Authority is what makes them weak as well because they want to have it too badly. They should be mature enough and leave their pride aside as this is the only way for them to develop in an efficient manner and from inside out.

In case they’ll manage to attain a certain level of maturity, they will certainly turn into models of power and responsibility for others.

The Sun in their tenth house makes them oppose authority while commanding it themselves. This would be a downside because they may bother some important and influential people in their life and not obtain what they want the most, which is success.

It can be challenging for them to be parents because they’re too authoritative, but at least they’ll be appreciated at work for this.
