6th House of Horoscope is Next Important House. The 6th house is 9th, if reckoned from the 10th house, and it is 10th, if counted from the 9th house. Thus, 6th house indicates fortunes of service like promotion, extension etc. It also indicates Success in competitive exams. In Astrology 6th house indicates Job and 7th house indicates Business. So for any kind of Job through UPSC, You need a Strong 6th house and 6th Lord.

8th house is another Important House for High Ranking Govt Services Like IAS or IPS. The 8th house is wrongly interpreted by Most of the People. The lord of the 10th if joins the 8th, a general understanding will be there that the profession of the native will be very ordinary. But it is not so and he may even become the head of the department provided other factors are also favourable. We have found the relation between the 10th and the 8th house in the birth charts of top executives, heads of the departments and IAS officer etc.
The 8th house is 11th from the 10th house while 10th from the 11th house. The 11th house indicates sources of income wealth and accomplishment of ambitions. So, the 8 house represents ambitions connected with service. This house also shows the nature of work, one will undertake as his profession.

Important Planets in Astrology for becoming IAS or IPS or Civil Service
The Sun and Moon are the royal planets. They are also treated as king and queen in the group of all planets. IAS is directly linked with the government throughout their service. So, these kingly planets have a prominent role to play in their birth charts.
Though Both Sun and Moon are important Planets for Govt Job but for jobs like IAS or IPS, the importance of Sun is more than Moon.
Saturn is the Natural Significator of Profession. Saturn is also the Karaka of Job. So the condition of Saturn Must be Good in your chart.
Cancer and Leo are the Royal signs. So we have to give Special emphasis on these Two Signs and Planets placed in these Signs.
IAS Yoga in Kundli
First of All, Your Horoscope Must have Strong yoga for Govt Job. You Need to check the combinations of Govt Job in Horoscope first and then only Use the Below Combinations of IAS Astrology Analysis.
There must be a link between the 10th and the 9th house, which means that one’s profession is supported by his fortune. Both of these houses must be strong. If the 9th house is not strong that means his fortune is weak. The 9th house must also be very strongly disposed for one’s success in IAS. The combination of 9th Lord and 10th Lord creates a Strong Raj Yoga Which is Necessary to Crack exams Like IAS or IPS.
The Sun or Moon must be linked with the 10th, 9th, 8th, or the 1st house, in one or the other way. The Sun or Moon must be placed there or may aspect these houses or may be associated with their lords. If it is not so, one will not be successful in IAS or UPSC.
The sixth house should be related to the ascendant or the 10th house in any manner. The lord of the 6th house may be placed in the ascendant or in the 10th or vice versa, or these lords may be conjoined together in any house or aspect each other. They may occupy each other’s Navamsa as well.
Some IAS Yogas in Kundli are Like -If Sun or Moon occupy the 10th house in association with their lords or If the Sun is exalted in the 9th house and Moon in the 10th House etc.
Another Yoga for IAS is If the 9th lord occupies the 9th and the 10th lord occupies the 10th e.g. the Sun in the 10th and Moon in the 9th, for Scorpio ascendant.
There is a good Possibility If there is a mutual exchange between lords of 9th and 10th houses or If the 10th lord joins 9th in association with the 9th lord, or vice versa.
Another Good Yoga for UPSC is that if The 10th and 9th lords conjoin at a favourable place and aspect the 10th and 9th houses respectively, e.g. for Aries ascendant, Jupiter and Saturn, lords of 9th and 10th conjoin in Lagna or Ascendant, from where they aspect their own houses 9th and 10th House.
These are a few positions, which show that 9th and 10th houses are strong enough and one may get success in all India competition of civil services, provided other conditions are also present in the birth chart of the native aspiring for IAS.
Karmic Control Planets do play a vital role for one to be successful as an administrative officer. Mr. M.C. Jain has discovered Karmic control planets and has written a book on this subject. These are the planets that give results due to deeds of past life, good or bad. The dispositors of Rahu and Ketu are called the Karmic control planets.
For one’s success in IAS, at least one of the Karmic control planets must be related with the Sun or Moon, either by conjunction or aspect. If it is not so, then it must be linked either with Ascendant or the 10th or the 9th house. Though in that case success will come after great difficulty.
We have also found that Venus is conjoined with the Sun or Moon, or the 9th and 10th lords, in most of the IAS natives. The reason appears to be very simple as IAS officers have all sorts of comforts and luxuries in life. They possess decent bungalows to live, cars to move and many servants to help them. They have all kinds of modern amenities and facilities at their command. Therefore, Venus also plays a vital role in the IAS Astrology.
