Natal Uranus in the 10th house may strongly influence the native’s career choices, making him very picky about what he does in his life for a living. This eradicates the risk of working in jobs he does not like, and can eventually lead to doing a dream job. Or more precisely, creating it on his own.
The erratic nature of the planet is making the native feel uncomfortable in orthodox types of careers, which involve routine. For such people, a perfect job is something non-monotonous that can offer very strong mental stimulation. As Uranus is responsible for everything connected with technology, internet jobs are one of the best solutions so that the individual prospers.
Such people dislike authority and will not submit easily to employers; thus a freelancer career and being self-employed is more suitable as it can grant freedom of movement. In case that the native has to work under the instructions of an employer, Uranus will definitely rebel in some moment; this will most certainly lead to quitting the job in a quite unpredictable manner. Indeed, the 10th house individual may be very hasty in such decisions; he will even quit the exact moment that this idea appears in his mind. An adversely aspected Uranus can lead to lengthy periods of unemployment or quick small jobs, as the native has a deeply buried repulsion towards applying for interviews.
In addition, Uranus in the 10th house can bring sudden genius insights and make a person an inventor. He can literally invent his own career, even if it is not connected with electronics or technology. Uranus can make an idea suddenly appear in his mind, and dictate him to follow an occupation that is rather pioneering, unique or even weird. In any case, Uranus will bring quite a lot of career direction changes, parallel projects and alternative collaborations with eccentric people.
As the 10th house is also ruling the individual’s stronger parental figure (usually the father), this parent may have been himself of a weird nature. The native as a child observes the parent having a rather different approach towards work than the rest of the world, and copies this pattern to reproduce it later in his life. The father may be an Aquarius or elsehow have Uranus prominently emphasized in his natal chart. He usually dislikes social climbing to authority positions, may be an altruist or a revolutionary and these traits inspire the young native, who does also becomes a non-conformist while choosing a career.
Uranus rules unexpected events, and when located in the 10th house can bring sudden publicity, even if it is unwanted by the native. Usually, this happens due to some unique characteristic of the individual or his actions, and he will appear in the news or be known by the society for being an extreme paradigm. His life and career can be very interesting for other people to know, and any information about the native will be presented under the label “believe it or not”. If Uranus is adversely aspected, the publicity may bring difficulties to the person. He might feel that people make fun of his uniqueness and mock him, while also be a part of a scandal. The mass will gossip about him and he will feel pressured and uncomfortable while in the centre of attention. On the other hand, public opinion is not really something he is concerned about, so any negative effects will pass soon.
During some positive transit of a planet to the native’s natal Uranus, his career can take off like an airplane and reach great heights he would only dream of. Beware though, Uranus acts the same unpredictably in the opposite way too. A hard transit might even make a business empire crumble to ashes. Of course, one of the good traits that a tenth house Uranus offers is an indifference to failures (well, victories too). The native will gather the ashes and will be reborn as a phoenix eventually, provided that he still cares to create a new career and not just indulge in living. Because indeed, such people care a lot more about life itself than self-defining through what they do as a job. In extreme cases, especially when the wealth houses provide the native means to live, he may even consciously choose to not work at all.
Natal Uranus in the 10th house is a pretty good natal placement, as the eccentric planet feels quite well in the realm of Capricorn and Saturn. After all, it is a lot better to have it high in the heavens, where it will mostly influence life directions than below the horizons. The planet’s traits can at least somehow be directed towards certain targets and goals. We should also mention that this natal placement will give to the individual quite a lot of altruistic traits, and he might battle for a better society. Uranus is ruling revolutionaries and anarchists, and the native may play his role in the social structure to promote such pioneering and transformative ideas.
