The tenth house begins with the medium coeli, the centre of the sky, which represents another important point in the horoscope. Apart from the Ascendant, the MC is probably the point which has the strongest outward effect.
The Tenth House: Community
The tenth house corresponds to the social realisation of a person and the position he occupies in the community. Often just this position has a lot to do with what our parents expect or have expected from us, and it takes some time until we realize what we personally think is desirable.
People with planets in the tenth house are pushing it to the public. A professional career as well as a higher social position seem pre-programmed.
Such people are not afraid to take on responsibility, and they are excellent as supervisors and entrepreneurs. Often they are also active in a public office.
