The 10th house is known as the house of ambition or the house of social status, and for good reason too because it rules over the place one has attained in society, so when you talk about fame or the role you play in your community or your promotions at work, they are all under the purview of the 10th house. The 10th House is ruled by the planet Saturn and the zodiac sign Capricorn which governs how we go after what we want methodically. This house is focused on success and professional ambition, but depending on if you have a particular planet in your 10th House, that will determine the intensity of your ambition.
For those with the sun in their 10th House, their ego is easily bruised and their professional success helps them repair it, so they guide it fiercely. For those with the moon in their 10th House, they will change careers a lot trying to find stability between their work life and emotional life. Mercury in this house produces individuals who love to analyse, they excel in public speaking and public image but have a fine balance between public and private life.
