Career is one of the most important aspects of an individual. Astrology not only emphasises the inclination of an individual towards a particular field but it also helps in finding out the suitable sector of career or livelihood by going through the horoscope. It can also indicate which profession will bring success and fortune for the native. Strong and positive planets in the horoscope decide what most suitable livelihood is for a person whether job or business. Mahadasha (Main Period) and Antardasha (Sub-period) and transit of planets also play important role in deciding the favourable timing of such event. Malefic effect of bad planets does now allow an individual to ripe the fruitfulness of even good time. Sun sign plays vital role in finding out the suitable career for a native. If we talk of Arians, we have to see the qualities of Mars, who is the lord of Aries. If Mars is strong, career or profession related to Mars will be suitable to him. Mars represents weapons, fire, energy, military, police, surgeons and engineers. The native will get ample opportunities in these fields. Like wise:
