The House of Career and Recognition
The tenth house highlights how a person seeks to gain recognition and career ambition. This house shows how a person wants to be defined, their position or status in life or what their calling is. The tenth house is what a person aspires to achieve and the results of their efforts in the form of accomplishment and recognition. It will show career direction and how an individual strives to climb the corporate ladder. The Midheaven (MC) is typically found in this house and forms part of the MC/IC axis, which shows personal direction in life based upon our parental influence.
The sign on the cusp of the tenth house will show how driven a person is to succeed as well as what they will be best known for in their outward life. The tenth house is also associated with business, awards, promotions, authority and celebrity.
