Dashamsha Chart (D-10) and way to read it.

After D-9, today let’s look at D-10 Chart and the way to read it. 

D-10 is also considered as one of more important D-Charts as it deals with Career. It is actually the expansion of 10th house of your birth chart. All the factors related to Career must be confirmed in D-10 chart. Again, I would repeat that no chart overrules/supersedes any other chart. All charts work in harmony with each other and all charts, dashas and systems of Astrology can be used simultaneously to confirm the results from one another. Purpose of having so many ways of prediction is not to create conflict but to confirm things seen from one place to another. All have parallel existence and importance. It may sound weird but there are Astrologers who practice Vedic System of Predicting on Western Tropical Charts and based on Sidereal Transits. And they are as accurate as anyone can be. It all depends on your experience as Astrologer. Once you have seen 1000+ charts, things automatically start coming into mind. 
Also, D-10 will always be in harmony with D-1 as it is prepared out of D-1 only. The place where it can be a benefit is that you can pin-point the field of Career. Like, if D-1 is showing Career as Doctor, then D-10 can pin-point Doctor of which field. 

As calculations of D-10 and other D-charts from now onward will continue to be more and more complex, I feel it is worthy not to confuse people with how D-10 chart is calculated and made. Also, as all software and website provide all the D-charts with D-1, let’s directly jump to the way to read D-10 chart? In case, anyone is interested to learn the calculation part then feel free to apply under Teaching Services from Consultation/Services Section. I will be happy to help. 

So, the points we need to check in D-10 chart – 

As I said earlier, we can read any chart on its own. So, check the whole D-10 chart. 1st house of D-10 will show your career path, 2nd house will show the Wealth of Career, 3rd house will show the Efforts of Career, 4th house will show the peace of mind from Career etc. D-10 can also be seen for person’s status, fame and rank in the world. So, every house, planet and sign can be analysed like this. More importantly, we can emphasize on following criteria. 

Ascendant & Ascendant Lord – In any chart, always check the Ascendant & Ascendant Lord position. In D-10, it shows the Career Path and direction of Career Path. Like, in attached chart, Ascendant is Leo. So, person is supposed to achieve throne of King through his Career and Ascendant Lord Sun is in 8th house and in Pisces. So, he will achieve King like status through following a Career Path of Spirituality, Occult and Mysticism. 

10th house and 10th house lord – As D-10 is basically an expansion of 10th house of Career from Birth Chart, it is imperative to check 10th house and 10th house lord of D-10. 10th house has Taurus sign there and Taurus’ lord Venus is in 11th house in Gemini. 11th house is Working for Higher Goals, Service to Humanity. Gemini is sign of Communication. So, this person’s Career is going into direction of serving higher humanitarian goals with his communication. 

2nd house & 11th house and their lords – Now, career we follow in life, must give us some wealth in return to live a good life. So, we must check 2nd house of Wealth & its lord position and 11th house of earning & its lord position. This will give an idea from where money is coming in our life. For Leo Ascendant, 2nd house and 11th house both are ruled by Mercury through its sign Virgo and Gemini respectively. So, Mercury becomes an important planet related with Money for Leo people. This chart has Mercury in 9th house in Aries sign. 9th house is Religion, Philosophy, Higher Learning etc. Aries is Individuality/Uniqueness. Mercury is Communication. So, this person’s wealth will come when he communicates about religion, philosophy and higher knowledge in a unique way. No prizes for guessing. It is D-10 of Osho Rajneesh. 

Atma Karaka & Amatya Karaka - Atma Karaka is the planet with highest degree and Amatya Karaka is the planet with 2nd highest degree in birth chart, except Rahu & Ketu. Atma Karaka shows the destination of soul and Amatya Karaka shows the path by which you will reach the destination of soul. As per the birth chart of Osho, Jupiter was Atma Karaka and Saturn was Amatya Karaka. Jupiter is in 5th house in Sagittarius. So, it is indication of a destination related with Education, Higher Education, Religion and Philosophy. Saturn is in Virgo in 2nd house. Saturn is strictness, Virgo is being critical and analytical and 2nd house is Speech too. So, he reached his destination by being critical and harsh in his speech. As Saturn aspects 8th house of Occult, Mysticism and Sun in Pisces there, Saturn’s harsh speech was in the direction of Occult, Mysticism and Spirituality. 

Sun - Every D-chart has a karaka and D-10’s karaka is Sun. So, while reading D-10, we must look at Sun position. As we have covered Sun as Ascendant Lord, everything I said in 1st point applies here as is, i.e. he will achieve King like status through following a Career Path of Spirituality, Occult and Mysticism. 
Mahadasha & Antardasha (MD/AD) – Now, MD/AD won’t only impact D-1 chart but also D-charts. As we can see here, although he was quite popular in 1960s and 1970s, but he got real fame when he started his Atma Karaka Jupiter Dasha in 1979. Very next year, he flew to USA where he took on US Govt head-on. So, he reached destination of Career as soon as he started Jupiter MD. 

Aspects – One thing we must keep in mind while reading any Divisional Chart is that we should not use normal planetary aspects. Like, don’t use 7th house, 5th house, 9th house etc aspect for any planet in any position in any house. Reason is simple. Planetary aspect works with D-1 chart as it is the map of sky at the time of your birth. Like, if a baby takes birth right now, he will have Sun in Scorpio and we can easily use 7th house aspect of Sun on the house where Taurus falls. But same Sun will go into a different sign than Scorpio in D-charts. It may be in Capricorn. Now, we can’t say that Sun is aspecting Cancer in a D-chart because in sky it was still at Scorpio, not Capricorn. Hope this is understandable. So, the way out is to use Jaimini Aspects ( in D-charts. Jaimini Aspects are Rashi/Sign based. There planets don’t aspect each other but Signs aspect. And the rules of aspects are like this – 

Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will aspect Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius and vice-versa, except the sign right before/next to it. It means Aries will aspect Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius but it won’t aspect Taurus as it is right next to Aries. Likewise, for every sign. 

Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces will aspect each other. 

So, the concept is that when these signs aspect each other, planets sitting in each sign would also aspect each other in different signs, hence mutually impact each other. It increases the possibilities of predictions and events.

Last, but not the least. While considering D-charts, keep in mind the concepts of Vargottama Planet, Vargottama Ascendant, Neech Bhang Raaj Yoga and other yogas. They all are inclusive. 

Hope this helps. Thanks,

Hello Vishalji It is easy to analyse celebrity charts because their life pattern is known. Your article is contradictory with regard to Aspects. You have used Saturn aspects on the 8th house of Osho Rajneesh giving him harsh and critical speech. You are also suggesting Jaimini Aspects, because in D10 charts planets do not aspect the way they aspect in D1 chart? Quite contradictory. We all know Osho speech was very critical and based on that you have fitted your analyses accordingly!

Namaste, Hope you are well. Firstly, I’d like to Thank you for the immense knowledge you share with us who are in the quest of knowing the Truth. I’ve learnt reasonably enough to understand little bit about my own chart. Career and Marriage are just stuck. My query is as follows Gemini Ascendant - Mrig(4) Merc in 2nd Sun in 3rd Sat in 6th Mars in 7th Rahu in 10th (Rev-4th) Ven(Deb but Dir strength)+Ketu in 4th. Jup(R)+Moon in 9th AK - Jup(R), AmK - Venus Moon in Shatabhishak(4) D-10 Leo ascendant Rahu in 1st Sun+Merc(exalted) in 2nd house Sat(Exalted)+Jup in 3rd Venus in 4th Ketu in 7th Mars in 11th Moon in 12th I’m a Yoga teacher applied for Australia PR waiting for visa. Lots of ups and downs in career, no stability in relationships/career. I have immense interest in Singing and I am pretty good at it, blessed with a good voice and learning capacity with God’s grace. Given the condition of AmK Venus in both the charts, how does a career in Singing look like. Will it pull me up? Please help, I am quite confused about coming to a conclusion about this part as different things point out in different areas. Current MD/AD - Sat/Rahu

Helo, nice topic! Im looking not my d10 but also d4 with d1. In D1 sun at 9th, 10 house with saturn, lagna lord mercury and atmakaraka mars!!! ( virgo asc in d1) rahu in 3rd so communications its always the way! In d4 same virgo asc, but 3 planets ats 12th: jup,rahu and sun) and 10 lord also mercury in 10th - again here, marketing and media. But with a lil tip: maybe foreigner connections for jobs and work opportunities. Finally d10 and some confirmations: lagna taurus, venus lord in... 12th, sun 4th lord in 12th. Maybe my destiny for work its really connections with media, social works, diferent culture, or, who knows, gains only by foreigner or with foreigners. im beginner, so of course neds more study, so, i want your experioence opinion, im at the right way in read my self charts?

@ jessy - as 1st/10th lord mercury is in 3rd house, you should definitely be in your own work. Mercury is communication, so writing can be a career. 3rd lord Mars is exalted in 5th house of creativity. Rahu in leo makes you creative plus Moon in 7th house means mind wants to connect with masses thru business. so creative writing can be a career. I will suggest to analyse d1 1st then d10 will make more sense. Thanks,


2017-09-02 18:46:08

Hello sir greetings. I was trying to understand the was really good but i think i m confused when reading my own D10. The D10 lagna is virgo, mercury in 3rd scorpio. D1 10th lord is mars is sitting on 5 the house cap in D10 togather with Saturn. Rahu in 12th house leo in D10. MOON in 7th pisces in D10. Venus sun ketu conjunct in 6th house Aqua. Lastly Jupiter in 8th house Aries in D10. I m trying my best to understand bt I am still blur. I had to change many jobs and am nt happy in any. What i truly desire is to write motivational songs and inspired people in the world thru my song. Not sure if this will be the right career path. Maybe u can say sumtin about it sir so that i get an idea about it
