profession. Any technical knowledge
can turn into livelihood if 5th lord, 5th
house directly connect to the 10th house
or 10th lord. Strong connection between
both like rashi parivartan, conjunction
or through aspect is considered good
when this connection made in 6th house
or 12th house, it indicates profession
related to medicine/doctor. 6th house is
the house of diseases and 12th house is
the house of hospitals and beds so when
5th and 10th lord have connection with
these houses create strong possibilities
for medical profession. 5th house is 12th

6th house. 10th house which is 5th from
the 6th house indicates intelligence and
skill of diagnosing the disease. 8th house
indicates longevity, life span and death.
So the 5th, 6th, 10th houses must be
