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).
Riding-Driving-Propelling = Mangala
Due to the forward-impelled dynamic energy conferred by [Yogakaraka] Mangala, ruler of 5-and-10, the Karkata-born are often gifted in matters of driving and steering.
They may excel in captaining ships, riding horses and elephants, piloting airplans, conducting trains, driving transport vehicles, and operating all manner of moving apparatus - from cruise-ships to canoes.
[Mangala-Mithuna] [Mangala in bhava-12] [Kuja-yuti-Budha]
Women - Shukra
Mangala representing testosterone and masculine thrusting energy in general, Karkata feminine 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 performing arts in dance or fashion modeling, or vigorously active military-engineering positions.
The short answer is that Karkata-born feminine figures may more often need to contend with competitive, dominating masculine figures in the career space (10) and the artistic performance space (5). However when Kuja is empowered, Karkata ladies may be exceptionally successful in performing arts

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 karma-sthāna-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 karma-sthāna is particularly inclined toward maritime [Old Pathways 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 indriya-lagna. Most (but not all) of the ingenious writers have Aśleṣa lagna.
BPL commentary KARKATA nativity
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.

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.
Often, the first lifepartner can be chronologically elder to the native. Shani activates Time.

Karkata indriya-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 indriya-lagna, the character, placement, drishti WRT impressionable, moody lagnesha Chandra will determine the conditions of emotional satisfaction.
