Practical matters

When looking more carefully at those born with the Cancer sign in the Tenth house, it can be noticed that they need to learn how to be more compassionate and how to forgive, during the present lifetime.

This has to happen even if they seem to be more oriented on career than on other things. No matter how much these people are respecting tradition, they must remember to put their individuality on hold and to act on their emotions when following any path in life.

It’s like their mission is to have and offer comfort, so they may be looking for it in their surroundings, even if they’re not doing it like a person with Taurus in 10th House does it.

Their reasons are to manage to be good and to feel secure when it comes to more practical matters, even if they’re most of the time ruling themselves according to their emotions.

The placement of Cancer in the Tenth House is somehow intricate and generates many contradictions because Cancer is opposing Capricorn, the natural ruler of the Midheaven. Therefore, everything other individuals are thinking as far as their ambitions and profession go doesn’t apply to individuals born with Cancer in 10th House.

These natives are never ambitious just because, no matter how much they would like to be. Instead, they’re ambitious for the reason that it makes them and others feel good.

As said before, they’re connected from an emotional point of view to their profession, meaning they can be agitated at work. Besides, they can be many times challenged by life.

When it comes to their relationships at work, they like developing them and interacting with the large public. This is all because they’re able to sense what others need and wish for.

It shouldn’t be surprising to find out that a 10th House Cancer individual is emotionally attached to his or her career, as well as their reputation. Those with this placement in their birth chart are good teachers and can show others, especially the young ones, how to manage in life.

Regardless of what they’re doing, they’re always worried about how others see them and want the respect of others.

More than this, they seem to depend on their place in society, not to mention they’re popular because of their optimism. Their career can be connected with their family life, so they can work with their relatives. The main idea for them is to individually develop while looking to be completely independent.

Caring about what others think

When it comes to the public image natives born with Cancer in Tenth House are displaying, this comes from their sense of emotional security. It doesn’t matter if they’re aware of it or not, their childhood has a lot influenced the way they’re seen in public and their professional road in life.

A person born with Cancer in 10th House can stay with the same profession he or she had ever since young. This is because natives with this placement in their birth chart are looking to feel familiar and to be comfortable more than anything else.

This astrological position is beneficial for those who are looking to become doctors, as it provides a lot of empathy and a need to nurture. If not wanting to become doctors or not fascinated about the science this profession involves, they can be healers, massage specialists or nurses.

Cancer in Tenth House natives are sensitive to how the world sees them and their place in the society. They need to be regarded as someone who deserves respect and is responsible. As said before, they tend to merge their career with their professional life, so it’s common for them to work with their life partner.

Caring about trust more than anything else, they’re trying to trustworthy themselves and to have reliable people in their life. Not wanting to deal with unpleasant situations, they may not communicate with their bosses and associates as well as others do.

They perceive everything from a spiritual point of view, which can be difficult and even troublesome for them. When it comes to practicality, they’re more focused on what they’re being transmitted from within and on their subconscious.

The sign of Cancer rules over the 4th House, which is the one of family. Those with Cancer in the 10th House, which is the one of career, can have their family involved with their job.

Perhaps they want to open a home-based business or to stay at home and take care of the domestic tasks, as they’re nurturing and always the ones to deal with a domestic crisis.

More than this, they simply love taking care of anyone. However, they should be careful and not invest all of their energy in helping because this can leave them exhausted. It’s not their purpose to all the time be at the hand of other people.

These natives have problems working in teams. They don’t like respecting orders and any authority. When bosses, they’re emotional with their employees and not expecting these to work very hard. For these reasons, they often need to find solutions to problems at work on their own.

Always in the right place

Tenth House Cancers are very important to the collective because they’re playing the role of the caring mother and the authoritative father who wants things to get done properly.

They aren’t the best leaders, but they can be influenced to become very successful in their careers when they’re focusing on their higher selves.

More than this, they know what to say and when to say it, especially at work. These natives care a lot about their career and professional success, meaning they can have some ups and downs until they’re deciding what profession to do.

Besides, they have a rich imagination and don’t mind giving a hand when asked to. It’s very likely for them to choose to do something characteristic to the sign of Cancer, which can be healing, public speaking or servicing, even caring at home for elders.

When having too big responsibilities, they can get scared and try to escape it. This is also happening when they’re no longer able to understand their inner workings. They don’t like listening to others’ advice, but they can understand when this is necessary for them and for solving their problems.

The 10th House in the Zodiac is the one that represents the contribution natives are bringing to life. Those having Cancer here can help others be more conscious when it comes to their emotions.

Because there’s a reaction with the 4th House, these natives can help people find their life purpose and a direction to follow. However, they need to be careful not to teach others how to be too emotionally involved.

Capricorn, the ruler of the 10th House, is influencing them to want love and to be lived. More than this, it’s making them want a good reputation and fame, but this is also the influence of Cancer.

Cancers can’t all the time feel at ease with the demands of Capricorn, especially if it’s in their nature to be focused on career and social status. People born with Cancer in 10th House love giving their advice to those who need and deserve it.

They give a lot of importance to tradition and their parents may want them to achieve too much in life, which can have them doing the exact opposite and not aiming for a stable career.
