Importance of Nine Planets in Suitable Career Astrology
While analyzing a horoscope for the profession, you will see the relation of many planets. But every planet has different career options to offer.

So basically you have to see the combination of planets. And if the majority of planets point to a certain vocation, that will only show us the direction. As of today, it is difficult to specify a profession. But I strongly believe that a strong passion and astrological suggestion show rays of the right profession.
This is the 3rd and 6th lord of the Natural Zodiac
The joyful planet Mercury represents the intelligence, logic, and education sector. As books are one of the media of communication gives career options related to Library, writings, authorship, knowledge of literature and linguistics, publication, printing, stationery, documentation, and teaching.
All the 3rd house-related options like news either through radio or T, V., you can also see jobs related to accounts, calculations, statistics, trading, and banking.
Mercury is communication, decision making, and your mental ability. If Mercury is strong, one will express himself in such language, which will have an impact on another person. Therefore Diplomats, ambassadors, and public speakers are also covered in this.
Media publishers, legal advisors, psychologists, intelligence bureau in RAW, CIA, and above all only a well-placed Mercury can flourish in Business. It is the significator of the 7th house of business partnerships.
Jupiter is the 9th and 12th lord of the Natural Zodiac
Jupiter’s profession will be related to 9th House and 12th house significations. All financial organizations, banking, insurance, Auditing, law, and order, lawyers and judges, and Managerial or higher posts only a strong Jupiter can give.
Since it has the lordship of the 9th house so all religious organizations, Gurus, yogi, sanyasi, and philosophers can be included. Jupiter also holds the lordship of the 12th house so Philanthropists and writers, as it needs a lot of imagination, and lastly Jupiter also gives the option of being Ambassador of the Embassy.

Venus also rules the industry of fashion, textiles, apparel, cosmetics, and accessories. Jewelry, Saloons, furniture, and handicrafts, then come perfumes, alcohol, and drug dealers.

Saturn is the main karaka of jobs and this is the reason its position is very important in a natal chart in career readings.
It is the North Node of the Moon
It does not have any physical body so the career options are those which are more into manipulation, illusion, smoke, and invisible stuff.
This explodes the energy of the planet it is posited, so if with Venus – secret organization, CBI, RAW, Chemical industry, and scientist.
As Rahu works against social norms so it also includes hidden things like black magic, and harmful products like alcohol, cigarette, and tobacco.
Rahu if with mercury can give options like electronics, computer department, and I.T. All new-age technology stuff, that is used to make an online presence. Like video creation, 3D animation, virtual reality, graphic designing, and so on.
Rahu also represents foreign land, as it is a separatist planet. So either work in a foreign country or association with foreign products and companies. All museums, jails, asylum, and old buried things are governed by Rahu, so a career in these sectors can also be expected.
In politics Rahu plays a huge role, as it is clever and manipulative, it gives obsession and is an attention seeker.
And lastly, it includes the Glamour world, photography, video making, screening, animations, and even the fashion industry, I would end Rahu’s options with the words that this planet provokes you to do wrong, and ultimately makes you face punishment. So if you take a Rahu-related vocation, keep Mars and Saturn approach, as this will protect you from Rahu’s temptations and attachments.
Ketu is the South Node of the Moon
This represents reality and truth, a secret knowledge that very few people are aware of, so more of tough work, like coding, programming, or research-oriented work.
This is a separatist planet, it gives you detachment from all sorts of materialistic things, takes you towards truth and Liberation, and you tend to have an association with religious or spiritual organizations. It will also give options like Vedic teachers, healers, astrologers, Vastu, and philosophy.
