Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get itr.
" The time is always right to do what is right."
~~ USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King
Being a professional is about more than being good at your job. It includes integrity, caring, listening and respect for those you are working with.

Be more than good. Be kind.

Regional names for bhava-10
" An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.
A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do nothing?'
The eagle answered: 'Sure, why not..'
So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested.
All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Moral of the story:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up."
Legum servi sumus ut liberi esse possimus
We are slaves of the law in order that we may be able to be free.

success in public life,
Karma * Effort
obligatory governance roles
Various bhava-pati may alter one's style and ability in performance of active duty. A benevolent bhava-pati in10th-amsha improves material outcomes for profession, authority.
A dusthamshapathi reduces social praise, but may be more productive spiritually.
legitimation of social authoruty via educational credentials, examinations, licensing, diploma
Professional diploma and certificates = yoga between bhava-4 and bhava-10.
When leadership roles are socially approved by formal education, examinations, certificates, diploma, license or other official credentialing, there is a positive relationship between bandhu-bhava, the place where society guards and protects its people, and karma-bhava, the place where social leaders issue lawful decisions and rules.
Graha drishti affecting karma-sthāna or karmesha -10
The good news = periods of karmesha-10 evoke the spiritual path of karma yoga.
The bad news = periods of karmesha-10 evoke the spiritual path of karma yoga.
Very heavy public leadership and hierarchical management responsibilities might attend this period.
The up-side = great dignity and respect attend these responsibilities.
The downside is getting stuck in work duties.
Can drain the joy out of life. Getting overburdened while pursuing the Path of Action (karma) can result in feeling trapped in a perpetual cycle of thoughts about time (never enough Shani) and resources (never enough Shani ) needed to properly execute one's public duties.
There is very little opportunity to pursue non-work activities
it can be hard on one's family sometimes to have the native so bound to duty; not relaxed;
and Yet, after the period is completed looking back one will approve of the work accomplished (presuming the lord is strong) not for one's ego-membrane embellishment (that is Surya not Shani!) but rather as a service toward improving and sustaining an orderly society.
It is critically important to take out small amounts of time for rest and reflection despite the pressures of these karmesha-10 periods.
Leadership, Prestige, Position, Status, Social Dignity, Rank
Mahadasha of Empowered karmesha-10 (free of negative drishti) will give very high levels of professional respect and recognition.
Vimshottari Dasha periods of Karmesha
Puses the Leadership portfolio onto the Front Burner
One may also acquire executive duties that require making top-down decisions and imposing rule-based order. Even if the person does not conceive of oneself as a leader, some expression of social authority must arise.Education (4) of the spouse-partner (7)
As 4th-from-7th , karma-bhava indicates the level of educational achievement of the mate.
Bhava Lords and Karaka in the Career House
Leadership capability whether compassionate or authoritarian, whether popular or hated, whether in education, politics, commerce, law, finance, medicine, or a host of other marketplace specialties, will manifest through the 10th house and its lord.
QUOTATION Das WRi
"A benefic is in 10 from Moon or a benefic is in 10."
" This combination is of some advantage to your career and rise in life and your reputation."
Government , Social Institutions, and Large Corporations
karma-bhava = svabhava of Shani.
Makara represents skeleton-bones, pyramids, hierarchies. Strong 10th-bhava gives a proclivity to hold highly responsible executive level positions in government service or large corporate hierarchies.
Very little entrepreneurism (6th-from-10th) or creativity (8th-from-10th) is permitted in iconic bhava-10, which emphasizes strictly class-based social role modeling, status positions, and public accountability. Being 12th-from-11th karma-sthāna-10 gives (the appearance of) loss or dissolution of income through a loss of earnings mobility or flexibility in the marketplace, due to being committed to the governance duties and unable to seek other opportunities.
A competent and committed public servant may become materially wealthy before entering the ranks of government regulatory duties, or afterward - but unless one is a criminal (e.g. strong 6th or 12th house effects) one may likely not gain significant financial well-being via the status and respect accorded to leaders.
(As most Americans know, the President of the United States earns a much smaller salary than most middle-ranking corporate executives!)
One's overall relationship to one's government (in the Sanskrit texts, one's " favor with the king" ) is displayed in
Large corporations function as extensions of government (or vice versa) as they are governed by elaborate hierarchies and the rule of law. High-level administrative work in a large corporation is also a function of a strong karma-bhava.
It may be beneficial in making a career assessment to also consider 10th-from-Sun and 10th dashamamsha (D-10)
Social Respect, Dignity, Prestige
Achievement in the sense of accomplishing important goals, is found in Labha bhava-11. Social recognition and honor granted for having accomplished those goals is found in bhava-10.
Twelfth-from = losses to that house. Labhastana = friends and community.
karma-bhava = 12th-from-11th = loss of connection to the marketplace and losses to your community,
If karma-bhava hosts strong negative planets, close friends might experience financial, emotional, spiritual, or emotional dissolution. If your friends are unable to support oneself due to their own losses, then one's own social rank may decline.
Children's Enemies, Debt, or Illness
8th-from-3rd = difficult conditions in karma-bhava can signify catastrophic changes affecting the native 's younger siblings.
