Leo enjoys fame, fortune, public adoration and high ranking positions with important sounding titles. If you’re not a celebrity in your own right, you’ll at least rub shoulders with those who are.

Another method looking at career and/or vocation using Noel Tyl’s methodology is his Midheaven Extension process.
Noel Tyl vocation book
We extend the midheaven in creative ways:–
•Through the midheaven sign and planet, ruling the MC
•Through dispositor dynamics, from MC ruler out to planets with which it is engaged by aspects.
•Through aspects TO MC itself, those planets and their dispositor dynamics
•Through mutual reception if present written < > eg: Ur< >Qven
•With a stellium, increasing focus on a particular house
•Through the oriental planet
•Key aspects like quintile quindecile,
•House position and sign of moon
Double bodied signs on MC Gemini, pisces and sometimes Saggi. This signifies more than one vocation or line of work is indicated. There can be vocational confusion here to.
Retrogradation has no process in the midheaven extension process. Neither does the ruler of MC aspect to other planets. What is important is CONTACT We need to see where the dispositor goes in a loop, or dead end
Oriental planet that rises before the sun, below horizon to left and above to right Described as [moonE]
Quintiles 72’ = creative faculty. Three or more command some creative outlet in life. If it doesn’t show up in work will be a hobby, which can be obsessive Suppression of the creativity is usually related to dysfunctional parent/child relationship in early life. Not seeing the qualities in the child nor fostering the child’s expressive needs.
Quindecile 165’ = intensity, obsession, enduring focus. Laser beam like This aspect is 15’ less or more than the opposition with an orb of + or – 2.5’
Aries point anything between 28’.5” mutable to1’.50” cardinal signs. Any planet on the aries point is going to bring those planetary energies forward.
midpoints sun/moon most important jup/Pluto usually defines a promise of success, often wealth, feelings of strong personal resourcefulness and mustering grace under pressure
Next moon by sign and house in vocation
Moon in 1st needs to do their own thing in own way
Moon in 2nd needs a work structure that allows public viewing and evaluation. building of monetary aspects, jewellery
Moon in 3rd needs to communicate, exchange, gather and react to information
Moon in 4th needs to work from home or make workplace look/feel like home
Moon in 5th teaching children, creative, theatrical
Moon in 6th Potential workaholic, service industries, social services, civil rights
Moon in 7th needs public recognition, meets public expectations & high visibility
Moon in 8th researching, consultant, editing fixing, other people’s money, insurances
Moon in 9th publishing ideas, fostering world views, exploring the law, work objective through travel
Moon in 10th take chart position, must be leader
Moon in 11th network of friends, getting job through friends, work fulfils social needs
Moon in 12th work behind scenes, director, consultant, silent partner, being unseen
Tenancy vs. Rulership Another point of debate is whether tenancy or rulership is the correct way to read a house. Press told us that tenancy was 4 times as important as rulership. Noel tells us that rulership is 5 times as important as tenancy. The only way the astrologer will know for sure is to see what is working for any given chart. Test what dominant tenancy would mean, and then test what dominant rulership would mean. http://noeltyl.com/discussion/index.php?topic=5268.0
The following combinations are a result of my research so they can not be taken as the final verdict. However, you can take them as useful indicators of career learning and according to me probably they will work.
Teacher – Let us start with the most important profession. For this, one has to have a strong Jupiter in the chart (kundali). This is so because Jupiter is the planet that rules education. Also, the 4th house plays an important role as it is the house of education. Ruling children and intelligence the 5th house should also be attractive.
Doctor – Even in this case, Jupiter plays an essential part. It is the planet of professionals and has to be in good strength. The 10th house of career and the 5th house of healing should have a good bond. Also, the 12th house should be strong enough. A good example should be Mr. K.N. Rao.
Music – Venus is the most artistic planet of all and that is why in Music it as to be strong. It should also have dig bala in the 4th house. The 3rd house is the one that is of the self efforts and the performing arts and it should be strong. Jupiter is important for Classical, Rahu for Rock and modern, Mercury for instrumental and Moon for vocal.
Lawyer – Again the Jupiter is the one that rules Law. The 9th house of has to be in good strength. Also, the 6th house is of the combativeness and in this profession it should be at the right place in the chart.
Architect – The house of land and houses i.e the 4th house along with Mars and Saturn should be at the right place in the chart. Mars represents building skills and Saturn is the planet of Earth. Besides this, Jupiter should be strong. This provides the required intelligence.
Renunciate Yogi – For this profession, one needs affliction of a few houses. For self-confidence 1st house, the 2nd house for family life as well as money, for home and happiness the 4th house and the 5th and 7th house for children and marriage respectively.
Sex Industry – This could include adult, media and erotic dancing. For this, one has to have strong presence of Venus along with Mars. The planet of happiness, Moon should be confliction. Also, the 1st house must be weak as it is the house of self-approval.
Entrepreneur – This profession demands a combination of many Dhana and Raja Yogas for money and leadership qualities. Besides this, Saturn (planet of big projects) and the 11th house (of gains) should be there in the individual’s chart. This is not all. The dasha sequence has to be indicative of repetitive success. Sun should be strong as it is the planet of leadership and confidence. Presence of a Mahapurusha Yoga is also beneficial. A person with this Yoga generally gains fame and wealth. The same holds for the career of a captain of an industry.
Foreign Languages – For gaining skills in a foreign language an individual needs to have the following planets strong – Jupiter, Mercury and Ketu. Also the 1st house should be strong enough. Cooking – In this not so popular profession, Mars and Moon should be of good strength. And the 2nd house should be strong.
Manager – For the leadership abilities, the 1st, 5th and the 10th house should be in good position. Also, the planet of royalty Sun should be strong. Mars is the planet of macho and that is why it is also necessary.
Modeling – This profession of beauty demands presence of strong Venus along with the 1st and 2nd houses’ strength.
Writing – This profession demands that the 3rd and 5th house along with the planets – Jupiter and Mercury must be well indicated in an individual’s charts.
Technical profession – The planets Mars, Rahu, Saturn, and Ketu have to be strong as these are the natural malefics. And one of these should have a relation with Mercury.
Profession in foreign countries – If you are looking for this then in your chart the 9th and 12th house should be strong enough. The planets Rahu and Ketu are the ones for “foreignness” and they should be prominent. The 4th house should have some afflictions.
Sports – For being a sports person, you need to have Mars string which is the planet for courage. Along with that the 5th house (games), the 3rd house (courage) and the 6th house (competitiveness) must be strong. Mercury should be well represented as it is the planet of fun. And also the planet Sagittarius should be in no case in the 8th or 10th house.
Astrology – To be an astrologer, an individual should have Mercury (talking and calculations), Ketu (the Enlightener) and Jupiter (for tradition and divinity) of good strength. Also the 5th, 8th and 9th house should be strong.
Automobile business – Mars and Venue should be extremely strong. Venus for luxury and Mars for mechanical planet. The 4th house is the house of cars so of course it should be strong as well.
Thus, in most cases the strength of 1st house is required (except the sex industry and yogi profession). Also, the more the connectivity between the separate indicators of the skills, the stronger will be the skill. It is very much clear that astrology works on commonsense where the meanings of each sign planet and house are used to interpret meanings and delineate professions.

Midheaven – What to look for in career
All transits simply act as background influences until they make a mathematical aspect to another planet or angle ie: Ascendant and Midheaven.

Get a good grasp of the person’s chart so that you have a sense of what this person is like. Even if s/he has talent in a particular area, if it doesn’t meet the individual’s core personality needs, s/he won’t be happy in it.
Get a good sense of the different planet, sign, and house rulerships. What does each of these entities cover? A good desk reference is: Rex E. Bills, The Rulership Book, published by the American Federation of Astrologers. Although it is arguably out-of-date for the IT age, it is still in print and otherwise very comprehensive. Most job titles will be listed here. For example, surgeons, soldiers, and athletes are ruled by Mars. Higher education is a 9th house matter. So is overseas travel.
The 10th house and MC indicate career in the sense of a vocation, public image, or even destiny. This is not the “just a job” house: that would be the 6th house. If the person needs to live on the income from the job (and who doesn’t) then also look at the 2nd and 8th houses.
What planets—if any— are in the 10th house, and what are their aspects like? These tell you that the career is a particular focus for the individual, and the aspects tell you whether the individual is likely to experience them as stressful or harmonious. For example, if Saturn in the 10th is well aspected, the person probably has administrative ability. If Saturn in the 10th is stressed, the person probably feels frustration and inadequacy in his career. This doesn’t mean s/he cannot be successful at it; merely that the career will probably be a stressor.
What is the ruler of the sign on the house cusp? If there are two, I would suggest looking at both the traditional and modern ruler. Then what is this planet doing by house and aspects? For example, if someone has the ruler of the 10th in the 5th, there are several options. (1) The career has to be fun for the person and a source of creative expression. (2) The person may not be best suited to a career, because the core meaning of the 5th is leisure-time activities and children. If this is a parent of small children, maybe s/he would be happiest staying at home with them—hopefully with the other parent bringing home the income. Recall that one meaning of the 10th is “public image” so this parent may be well known in the local PTA or scout troop as a super parent, not as a CEO or foreman. (3) The person might be good at a 5th house type of career, such as working in a municipal recreation program, the theatre, a gambling casino, or pre-school.
So for example, we could imagine someone with the sun in Leo in the 11th, with Cancer on the cusp of the MC. The ruler of the 10th house, the moon (in Pisces), is located in the 5th house. This person might make a good teacher because the Leo sun likes to be on-stage unless afflicted—and in a classroom the teacher always has an audience. The 11th house deals with friends and hopes for the future. An organization like a school offers friendships with co-workers and hopes for the students' futures. (We note also, that theatre is a 5th house matter.) Then Cancer and the moon have a parental or even nurturing quality, and this moon is located in the house of children.
Do the same thing with the 6th house of work and service, and the 2nd and 8th houses of money (the individual’s plus “shared resources.”) The 8th would be especially important if somebody was interested in an 8th house career like financial advisor. If the ruler of the 2nd is in the 4th house, for example, perhaps this person would prefer to earn money from home, or perhaps have a career in real estate or in an industry dealing with accommodations such as hotels.
It is kind of a separate topic, but if someone’s money house looks stressed (for example, Saturn in the 2nd square Pluto and the ruler of the 2nd,) they really need to develop some personal finance management skills.
It is a big help to (a) know what careers are out there, and (b) what the day-to-day work is like. Also, it is hard to tell from a chart unless you are a better astrologer than I am whether someone has been to university or has the financial means to go if it is a younger person. Then some careers require advanced degrees, which might be difficult for an older person with stressed 9th and 2nd houses. Sometimes people are motivated to be spiritual teachers or tarot card readers, but they would usually need some other day-job to pay the rent. It is always OK to ask the person what education and job experience they have to date, and how happy they were with them.
There are a few wild cards in the deck. If people have artistic talent, they often want to express it regardless of whether it seems like their dream career to an astrologer. If someone has a “splash” type of chart without a discernable focus, they would probably do best in a job that has a lot of diversity and requires a “jack of all trades.” If someone has a big focus on just a few signs and houses, they would probably be most motivated in these areas, even if his MC says something else. Also, squares are stressors, but they indicate areas of life that the individual is forced to develop, and an ambitious person may even select a job that accentuates her squares. People with watery charts might look super at working with prisoners or autistic children, but sometimes they will tell you no—they are so sensitive that their nervous energy would just get overloaded in absorbing these people’s energy. If someone has the sun in an intercepted sign, Neptune in the first house squaring the MC, or other indicators of difficulties in developing a clear sense of identity, these people may feel they will never find a fulfilling career.
Some careers are really difficult to see in a natal chart. The Astro-DataBank at www.astro.com is full of actors' charts. There does not seem to be much commonality between them.
Let your mind be open to different unusual combinations. If someone has strong 10th, 9th, and 8th houses that are not too airy, he might be good at a career in international trade. For an airy person with this combo, however, they might enjoy working in a university, even as an academic support staff member working in the financial aid (8th house) department or with administrators. A psychologist dealing with clients on a one-on-one basis might be good with Pluto, Mercury, and the moon on her AC/DC axis.
We can also look to the north node of the moon, to see where the individual’s growth lies.
