Career * profession public reputation vocation
Although the 10th navamsha and its ruler must be considered in any profile of career, generally most Karkata nativities have some career pattern that matches Mesha themes of independent action, animal nature, innovation, invention, initiative, competition, championship, combustibility, engineering, engines, ingenuity, movement, dynamism, energetics, warriorship, blood, muscle, pushing, new birth, new starts, embodiment and the fleshbody.
Mangala must be located and assessed in order to begin the career profile.
However other factors are also important in identifying the main leadership and public duty roster.
Nevertheless, a broad tendency for Mesha natives is to drive (Mesha) careers in novel, pioneering, energy-pushing areas that contain leadership duties designed to maintain the social order (10).
Mangala representing testosterone and male thrusting energy in general, female Karkata nativities may be challenged to promote their careers in male-dominated Mesha environments. Certain professions are generally more welcoming of Karkata women, such as muscular careers in dance or fashion modeling, or certain types of active military or engineering positions.
Patterns of Bhava-10 Profession
Careers in Mangala-related industry are most probable for the Karkata nativity. It is important to assess the rashi-bhava-drishti situation of Professor Kuja to fine-tune any predictions.
Mangala-ruled karmasthana-10 may favor careers in fuels and engines, energy and propulsion. Karkata folk can be influential leaders in newly identified areas and are often found governing energy-product hierarchies.
Combining the Karkata-lagna impetus toward defense of the root-culture and protection of the boundaries of the place of settlement, Mesha-ruled karmasthana is particularly inclined toward maritime (Karkata) military weaponry (Mesha) and defense careers. Success in military invasion, forceful explorations, weaponry, engineering, surgical tools, driving, diving, drilling, plumbing, plowing, hunting, excavating, explosives.
Karkata nativities also lead in Mangala-related fields such as start-ups, inventions, dynamic social change initiatives, and the institutional governance of these sectors.
Mangala also produces new ideas at the conceptual level. Thus professional scientists, literary writers producing a surprising new view of human nature, and other innovators of culture may be found with Karkata lagna. Most (but not all) of the ingenious writers have Azlesa lagna.
|BPl commentary|| |
Generally, Karkata folk are the guardians of the Earth. Even the syllable 'ea' means water (in the Annunaki tongue from which the name Earth is derived). The
Chandra-ruled Karkata nativities are typically very sensitive to matters of security and protection, which makes them distinctively patriotic and boundary-conscious; disliking of change; deeply attached to the comfortable habits; loyal to the parents; and defensive of the cultural roots.
Schooling, Securing, Shielding, Sheltering and Sustaining
Patriotism, Protectionism, Parenting, Policing
They are the gardeners, the defenders, protectors of the vulnerable, the water-and-irrigation managers, the parental caretakers, the police, the patriots, the sheltering and nourishing security specialists. Easily respond to any call to defense of the land and its denizens (animals too); yet rarely offensive. They prefer the quiet routines of life in the place of origin.
Deeply parental in attitude, they are localists by nature, environmentalists, farmers and fisher-folk, profoundly attuned to the rhythms of the seasons, the ocean tides, and the soothingly predictable cycles of family life. Their roots go deep into the place of settlement.

|Lagnesha Chandra|| Nativity = Karkata lagna or Karkata Chandra = strongly identified with the parents, particularly the mother, and with the social behaviors of parenting. |
One may be socially most comfortable in the parenting role and in company of other parents, and may prefer the social environments of traditional, intuitive habitual non-literate cultures.
Karkata natives are typically very patriotic, but not in a separative or warlike way. Rather, they see the family as the basis of all society (rather than the economy, or government, or religion, or education).
Comfortable on the sea and naturally fitted to the mariner's lifestyle.
A highly developed Chandra (Mighty Heart 1975- drama-activist Angelina Jolie ) may carry this family-basis sensibility to the highest ranks of world culture, but the native will typically define oneself not according to the rank but according to the in-common role of mother or father.
For Karkata lagna, the character, placement, drishti re: impressionable, moody lagnesha Chandra will determine the conditions of emotional satisfaction.
The pair of domains which are afflicted by association with the "unholy trinity": Rahu-Ketu + Shani + Mangala.
These are the two domains which are controlled respectively by
Conditions involving (5) divine creativity (including children and wealth from speculation) configured with one's in-laws (8) and the shared wealth of marriage (particularly indicates inheritances) are likely to be highly complex, drawn out, conflicted, and psychologically challenging.
