Strong third house : Boon or Curse?

By Kshitij Sharma, March 18, 2007

Author: Nitin Kashyap

[Editor: This is first article in a series that will be published under “Guest Author” category. Mr. Nitin Kashyap has kindly written this article for the website He hails from Dwarka and practices astrology professionally. He can be reached at kashyap_nitin [at] rediffmail dot com.]

In a Vedic astrology birth chart, third house is representative of attributes like courage, younger siblings, short tours, skills, servants and capability of being a writer in literally sense. Still, it should be noted that in a lot of of cases, a powerful third house comes at the cost of trouble in profession and finance. Some of the examples where this is seen are:

  1. if the third house lord is conjunct with the tenth lord in seventh house,
  2. if the third house lord is situated in tenth house or the tenth lord is situated in third house, or
  3. if third lord is not a friend of ascendant lord and at the same time it is exalted.

Take an example of Aquarius ascendant. Mars is the lord of two houses – third as well as tenth. It is not a natural friend of Saturn, which is the lord of the lagna in this case. If Mars is exalted in house number 12 for this lagna, the person faces a lot of problems in his career. Some astrologers can say these problems are being caused by the 10th lord being in inimical 12th house but in my opinion, the root cause of all the problems is Mars being the third house lord and at the same time it being strong by virtue of exaltation. The reasoning behind my observations and opinion is as follows:

  1. First of all, third house is sixth from tenth house, thereby indicating enemies of the profession. In this capacity, it indicates problems and struggles in professional life.
  2. Seventh house from any house is considered to be a maraka bhaav for that particular bhava. The third house is seventh from ninth house. Ninth house, also known as labhastana, is indicative of luck, religion, higher studies etc. Therefore, a strong third house would automatically create deficiency of good luck.

I think it is necessary for all poets and writers to have a good influences on the third house and a strong third house lord, because this indicates a command over language and communication and their literally capabilities. However, if you look closely over history, a large number of good writers have lived in poverty and have lead a miserable life.

All comments on this article, in form of praise or criticism, are most welcome.

    Third house article is good, number of astrologer never give importance to third house they only see trine, kendra and dusthana …keep it up..I am leo ascendant …and my venus is weak …according to you,it is gud for me ?

    Good article… very easy to understand. I just started learning astrology and this kind of articles r very helpful. Would love to see more.

    Nice article. I myself have a third house lord Venus exalted in Pisces in 8th house. I am leo ascendant. Venus is also my 10th lord. The planetary position is damn confusing for me. I have 8th lord Jupiter with Lagnesh Sun in 10th house.

    in 9th, i have dhanesh budha along with 12th lord moon. I am currently living abroad and work for a very large bank, but i had faced a lot of trouble in my early life. I dont know if am a good writer, but i love writing and i do blog πŸ™‚

    You are right. But if other positions are strong, their professional problems may be overcome later on. But the pursuit of profession is likely to be beset with problems, or other distracting influences. On a positive note they may take up short contracts for work. I am a taurus ascendant with ninth and tenth lord saturn in the third house of cancer. The third lord moon is exalted in my taurus ascendant. Personally I have earned zilch in my life, and have been studying forever. I am wealthy because my husband is wealthy and because my father was wealthy.Siblings (ruled by third house) are doing well. Whether a strong third house is a boon or curse depends on one’s attitude. I have a child and am OK with the slow professional growth because I have more family time, but I do admit that my professional pursuits kind of get lost and seem unreachable at times. But that is mostly because I compare with others who reach their goals faster. I have been studying forever, and just when I am nearing my goal, my husband’s job shifts and since family is priority number 1 for me, I have to move and look out for other venues in the new place! So I can vouch that it isn’t easy with a strong third house. Also I took the time to write this because I love to write!

    Abolutely right aruna. I agree with you almost 100%. I guess for you the right option is to blog. Blogs takes less time off your daily life and you can earn a decent amount. Rather than sitting idle it would be a good earning source and since you love writing it would give you some satisfaction.

    Trust me with 3rd venus exalted for me, I had been in the news for all the good reasons since i started blogging. Within only 4 months, my blog is recognised as a authority blog and i myself is currently rated as one of the most influential blogger. My blog receives more than 100,000 views per month not bad for a 4 month old blog :-

    hi Vinay
    your birthchart definitely indicates a great career as sun the lagna lord is with 5th lord jupiter in the 10th house forming a raja yoga. 10th lord venus is in the 8th house but it’s getting exalted and it’s being with raja yoga karak planet mars forming a dharma karma raja yoga again shows a great career. it means making a career in something that inspires you. the rahu dasha indicates career as the dispositor of rahu is venus which is in the 10th house. rahu in the 3rd house, 3rd lord venus exalted and conjunct mars and mars also aspecting the 3rd house and rahu makes you a headstrong person. there is a strong indication of a career in psychology, alternative healing like homeopathy, reiki, astrology or research work. well, the work you are doing is also okay as venus is the 3rd lord as well but something connected to the above said subjects should be the topic of your writing.

  • Comment by BASAB ROY on March 29, 2007 at 6:00 pm

    sorry, i have written “the rahu dasha indicates career as the dispositor of rahu is venus which is in the 10th house”, let me rectify it so that there is no confusion. the rahu dasha indicates career as the dispositor of rahu is venus which is the 10th lord”

  • Comment by S. Anand on March 30, 2007 at 12:48 pm


    Are you using the BV Raman ayanamsha for the chart? If I apply Chitrapaksha-Lahiri, Rahu is on the 29th degree of Virgo, on the Bhava-Sandhi making him ineffective.

    Personally, I feel exaltation of a planet in the 8th, and that too in an inimical house is NOT good. Moreover, Venus is conjunct Mars (lord of the 4th and 9th). Mars actually wins the planetary war

    As far as Jupiter is concerned, his presence on the exact mid-heaven degree is good. But remember he is also the 8th lord in his sworn enemy’s house. This will reduce his influence quite a lot.

  • Comment by BASAB ROY on March 31, 2007 at 1:21 pm

    S.Anand ji,
    i used Lahiri ayanamsha for the chart.
    don’t have much idea about Bhava-Sandhi so can’t comment on that. Rahu works according to it’s dispositor and according to the planets that are conjunct with Rahu so i made the analysis on the basis of that.
    no planet placed in the 8th house is good but Venus the 10th lord(exalted) with 9th lord Mars(Raja Yoga Karak planet for Leo lagna) is definitely forming a Raja Yoga in the 8th house which indicates profession and success in matters related to the 8th house. the professions i have talked about in the previous posts are signified by the 8th house. yes, the Raja Yoga gets a bit weak due to it’s formation in the 8th house but still it will surely give positive results and especially in matters related to the 8th house.
    Venus will always be exalted in an inimical house so that should not be considered as a negative point at all.
    i don’t give much importance to the planetary war concept as i have seen in some cases it doesn’t work that much.
    yes, Jupiter is the 8th lord but it’s being the 5th lord makes it a functional benefic of Leo lagna and so it’s a favourable planet for Leo lagna and it’s forming a Raja Yoga with the lagna lord Sun in the 10th house is favourable for career. Sun+Jupiter combination is Guru-Shauri Yoga which is an auspicious combination. the Sun is also digbala in the 10th house.
    there is a Parivartan Yoga between the 8th lord Jupiter and the 10th lord Venus. that again strongly indicates career in matters related to the 8th house but it’s true that the 8th house connection with the 10th house definitely indicates some disturbance in career.
    this disturbance will be felt more in the Venus+Jupiter dasha and the Jupiter+Venus dasha

    Thank you for the reply. I used J-Hora software to cast the chart and it puts Rahu in Virgo (29-07), while applying “mean nodes” and in Libra (0-36) when applying “true nodes”. I realized you are using Kshitij’s chartmaker, which uses “true nodes” for Rahu and Ketu.

    I have a question for you regarding Neechabhanga v/s Neechabhanga rajayoga. When Mars is in Cancer with the Moon, does he get Neechabhanga? Similarly, in horoscopes in the solar month of March-April, we find Mercury and Venus in Pisces. If they are together, does Mercury get neechabhanga?

    For Neechabhanga Rajayoga, I believe the rule is “the planet who gets exalted in that sign should attain a Kendra from Lagna or Moon”. But in these cases, can we consider just Neechabhanga, by virtue of Mars being with the lord of the sign AND Mercury being associated with an exalted planet? This is a a question that has plagued my mind for atleast 7-8 years now !!

  • Comment by BASAB ROY on April 3, 2007 at 9:55 am

    S. Anandji
    when debiliated Mars is with the Moon in the zodiac Cancer then Mars is definitely getting a Neechbhangya.
    when exalted Venus is with debiliated Mercury in the zodiac Piesces then Mercury is definitely getting a Neechbhangya.
    there are many rules for Neechbhangya Rajayoga. i am telling you 2 of them which can be applied to the present query of yours.
    if a debiliated planet is conjunct or aspected by the lord of the house in which the planet is debiliated then the debiliated planet gets Neechbhanga.
    in this case Mars is debiliated in the zodiac Cancer and is being conjunct the Moon which is the lord of the house where Mars is debiliated so Mars is getting a Neechbhangya.
    if a debiliated planet is conjunct or aspected by the planet which is exalted in the zodiac where the planet is getting debiliated then also the debiliated planet gets Neechbhangya.
    in this case Mercury is conjunct Venus which gets exalted in the zodiac Piesces where Mercury gets debiliated so Mercury is getting a Neechbhanga for sure.

    Dear Basabji and Anandji,

    As a student just learning to study astrology I am happy to see your discussions. It gives me hope that continued diligent pursuit may help me understand atleast the basics of a horoscope someday. As of now I am really lost because there are too many factors that need to be taken into consideration. I would like to request the assisstance of both of you to help me understand my own horoscope and that of my husband’s. Can I hope to get a response?

    I was told by another famous Indian Astrologer that I have a past life curse of women and he sees it from the third house. I am sceptical but the way my life seems to be – I am beginning to believe that I may not ever be married to the person I love or make a good partner. Please can you compare my chart and my partner’s to verify if I do have this curse? Can we get married and be successful together?

  • Comment by Nitin on April 10, 2007 at 11:57 pm

    U know on your birth day there was a total solar eclipse at that day. I must say You couldnot show your talent or ability confidentally. You will not have good relationship with you mother in law. You should have stable but rat cat type marriage. There is not a serious issue of breaking up . U will have gud relationship with your hubby. There is a problem with your married life as Mars is placed in Seventh bhaav in a rashi of Mercury which is not good . There are chances of Aggressive spouse. Second, Vivah lord Mercury is in dusthana in Rahu ketu nodes, with 8 lord Chandrama.As Vivah swami from chandra kundali (Saturn) is placed with Vivah Karaka (Jupiter) in 3rd house it shows stability but compatibility between both of you should not be good at all. Remaining later……

    there are several conditions for neechabhanga. The extent of cancellation depends on the number of factors operating in this regard.

    Neecha Bhanga
    A debilitated planet is in its most weakened state, these are merely ways the planet is strengthened therefore lessening the effects of the debilitated planet. A weak planet will cause problems pertaining to indications for that planet, also the dasha cycles of that planet can produce problems. Neecha means debilitated and bhanga means reversal. Here are the main ways in which debility can be modified, or cancelled. This may not be considered a yoga per say, but it is very important to consider in chart interpretation.

    If the ruler of the sign occupied by the debilitated planet is in a kendra position from the Moon or the Lagna.

    If the ruler of the sign where the debilitated planet is exalted is in a kendra position from the Moon or Lagna.

    If the ruler of the sign occupied by the debilitated planet aspects the planet.

    If the planet who would be exalted in the sign occupied by the debilitated planet is in a kendra from the Moon or the Lagna.

    If the debilitated planet is exalted in the Navamsha.

    The dispositor of the debilitated planet gives greater relief to the debilitated planet when the dispositor is well placed.

    Neecha Bhanga Raja Yoga
    Raja yoga is only when the debilitated planet occupies a kendra, otherwise it

  • Comment by S. ANAND on April 21, 2007 at 5:48 am


    Yes, Neechabhanga AND Neechabhanga Rajayoga are two different things. Bhanga, as I understand it, stands for Cancellation, and not Reversal. So NB is just cancellation of debility, affording the planet to function as per his placement in the chart. Something like “Ok let’s take away the crutches and see how far this guy can walk.

    Rule 4, appears in “300 Important combinations” and the sanskrit word “taducchanatha” was used, and Dr. BV Raman himself states that the particular sloka/stanza has been interpreted differently by his own grandfather, Prof. B. Suryanarain Row in defining the precise parameters for NBRY. I think a lot of time NB and NB-RY are mixed up.

    Mercury-Venus in Pisces or Virgo is quite a common occurrence for natives born in March-April, and August-September. Similarly, one sees Jupiter-Mars in Cancer or Capricorn, or Sun-Saturn in Aries-Libra. All these as you would notice, have an exalted planet and a debilitated planet in the same sign.

    Do such combinations obtain automatic cancellation of debility i.e. Neechabhanga. Let’s not worry about the Rajayoga part, for now.

  • Comment by S. ANAND on April 21, 2007 at 5:50 am

    (continuing the previous question)

    Let us assume that these exalted-debilitated combinations occur in:

    (a) a Kendra, non-Lagna
    (b) a Kona
    (c) a non-kendra, non-kona house.

    Thanks for your response.

  • Comment by Soumya on April 22, 2007 at 12:58 am

    Hello Anandji/ Basabji,

    I’ve been reading the posts here and I have a question. According to Anandji, he mentions that any planet in the 8th despite the exaltation is not good, especially in an inimical sign. If this is the case, how does one assess the strength or the role of Venus for Leo Ascendants if it is placed in the 8th house. How would one be able to determine how the Venus Dasa and Bukthi be?I am a Leo Ascendant and have Venus in the 8th with Moon. Venus is also Vargottama.

    I’ve been trying to figure this out for a few years now and I really don’t know what factors to take in to consideration. I am a novice in astrology and any direction on how to go about it would help.

    Thanks in advance…

    hello Divya ji,
    i am an amateur in the subject but still answering your question. i think the antardaha of saturn from aug,2007 strongly indicates travelling abroad. let me give you the logic behind the prediction.
    in your birthchart saturn is the 12th lord from the lagna, 12th lord from the moon and in the 9th house from the dasha lagna mercury which is also a house which signifies travelling abroad. in the navamsha also saturn is the 12th lord, so the antardasha of saturn definitely indicates travelling abroad.

    would be glad if you take a look at my birthchart and tell me something about it.
    my birth information is 14th july,1980 1:36 PM Calcutta, India

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 22, 2007 at 9:02 pm

    a real reading can not be made just on the basis of placement of mercury in 10th house. it is surely a maleafic for an aries ascendant. however if the nakshatra situation is favorable then it may not be such a problem. however if it is not saved in nakshatra chart then there will a lot of struggle in the work envirnoment during its dasha.

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 22, 2007 at 9:15 pm

    a very fortunate chart.
    venus is the lagnesh and is also the dasha lord. most of the planets in the chart are move ahead in chalit. that causes a little bit of instability in the chart.however venus dasha will give v great results, wealth, name and learning.
    tansit of jupiter is not v favorable right now given that it is sitting 7th from lagna, aspecting natal moon and is a strong maleafic for this chart. however transit of sat into leo will end ur janma shani and will help open up a lot of channels in the chart. venus ven will be slow but ven sun will see immediate results with great focus on success in financial field-by suns association with 2nd lord and placement of ven in 2nd house. watch out for the mind going astray under the influence of rahu. do not dream too much. focus on activity and you will enjoy enormous success. your success in field of astrology will also be great.

    With regard to my query , would you be able to help analyse my chart. Would greatly appreciate it. DOB: 26 April 1976, 1:50 PM, Chennai


  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 23, 2007 at 12:44 am

    i do not AT ALL agree with the theory that planets in the 8th always give bad results. they also aspect the 2nd house of wealth and give great provess in fields of hidden wisdom, inheritence etc.
    your ven in 8th is not bad due to its placement in 8th. it is slightly bad since ven is not exactly cmfortable with the lord of the lagna by natural equations. moreover it forms a connection with the 12th lord also. but by virtue of sitting in the nakshatra of merc-which is lord of gain and wealth and sitting in its place of natural signification-10th house, it will give you good results.
    it has the chance of taking you abroad and keeping you close to the sea. also in chalit chart, it moves to the 9th house. it forms a natural connection between trine and quadrant and also the lagnesh. so it will operate in a v benefic manner for you. specifically from the point of view of profession and placement abroad

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 23, 2007 at 2:22 am

    mon-lord of 5th is in deep almost degree combustion with sun in the 4th. it is also co joined with mercury-a badhak for your lagna. this causes your mind to have little clarity. makes you prone to depression and causes mental and emotional blindness at times. also placement of ketu in lagna makes the mind feel detached from the world and creates a sense of unrest with the circumstances around.
    as for remedial measures, i would strongly suggest starting some meditation practise. something that will calm your mind provide a sense of balance. i dont know if we are supposed or allowed to suggest other spiritual sites here but if we can do so, i would like to suggest some to you where you can learn a little about meditation etc. as for astro gem therapy, i believe a good yellow sapphire will help you overcome certain astrological flaws in your chart.
    but dont worry-from jan 2009, you will enter into a much better time where a lot of the problems in your life will fall away

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 23, 2007 at 2:49 am

    depest apologies. got a little mixed up while casting the chart.
    yes, most of what ive said earlier holds true. mon continues to be deep combust in your chart. now the badhak is jupiter not merc. and it stays securely in your lagna along with mon that moves forward in chalit. also aspect of akarak mars on the 10th house as well as 6th is not of particularly good effect for you. jup merc from aug 18th, 2007 will bring some relief for you. transit positions at the time also help the chart. would be advisable to wear a good quality emrald AND i still maintain my advice about meditation.

    Thanks Divyaji,

    I indeed currently live abroad and live by water! I have a couple of more questions – one of which is related to what you had mentioned about the conjunction of Venus with 12th lord Moon. What are the effects of this, especially given the fact that my 7th lord is in 12th and Moon is in the Nakshatra of 7th lord and in 8th. How will that affect married life or prospects? I have been trying for a number of years to find a suitable partner but to no avail.
    Regarding my profession, the past few years has been troublesome. What can that be attributed to?

    Thanks in advance for your response.

  • Comment by BASAB ROY on April 23, 2007 at 12:09 pm

    Divya ji,
    firstly thanks a lot for the analysis. i think you got my birthchart wrong because venus is not in my 2nd house as you have mentioned. it is in the 8th house in taurus, sun has no link with the 2nd lord except that mars the 2nd lord is in the nakshatra of the sun. yes, i am running the dasha of venus and the antardasha i am running currently is jupiter and not sun. in transit jupiter is in scorpio which is in the 5th house from the moon and 2nd house from the lagna which is libra. so there must have been some problem with drawing up the chart.
    i am telling you the positions of the planet hope that helps.
    lagna- libra
    8th house- venus(nakshatra of mars)
    9th house- sun(nakshatra of jupiter)+[mer(R) & Combust](nakshatra of jupiter)
    10th house- rahu(nakshatra of mercury)+moon(nakshatra of mercury)
    11th house- sat(nakshatra of sun)+jupiter(nakshatra of venus)
    12th house-mars(nakshatra of the sun)
    dasha running- venus dasha jupiter antardasha.
    i want to know how my jupiter antardasha is going to be as jupiter is in the 11th house but it is malefic for my lagna which is libra.
    you have talked about astrology, but the chart you looked at was maybe wrong so would be glad if you take a look at the chart once again and tell me what my career is going to be and when i will achieve success in life.
    thanks in advance

    The bhava disposition of any planet is key. The bhava/chalit chart is important to show which bhava the planet lies, but for strength the planet must lie closer to the midpoint of the house. The rasi dispositor, navamsa lord and the nakshatra dispositor must be considered before establishing what a planet can or cannot do. But, exaltation in a dusthana is not helpful just like debilitation of a planet in a kendra or trikona is not beneficial.

    In your chart, Venus lies on the 28th degree of Pisces and your 9th house midpoint is the 7th degree of Aries. Venus is in the 9th house, and not in the 8th. Jupiter is combust. Vargottama for Venus is good, though blemished by Rahu’s association in navamsa.

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 24, 2007 at 12:42 am

    not the best chart for marriage.
    but the time has almost come. this transit of rahu will SURELY get you married. as rahu approaches 6degrees 50 mins of aquarius, your marriage will take place. be prepared for the marriage taking place close to the 10th of december.
    the placement of saturn and the connection of the 7th and 12th cause for delayed marriage or break in marital chart. girl will be based overseas.
    you need to be careful to ensure that there is no divorce ahead.
    with regard to work-ketu is not the best planet for your chart despite being nakshtra lord. this dasha will create a lot of obstacle and hurdles.
    but placement of mercury is v strong and will help you attain success.
    and a little more respect for your astrologer would be greatly appreciated so cut out the hi divyas will you? πŸ˜‰

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 24, 2007 at 12:52 am

    apologies for studying the wrong chart earlier.
    your jupiter is not particularly bad for you since it is placed in the nakshtra of the lagna lord. in kp it is in the sub nak of venus also. so it loses its maleafic form to a large extent.
    also its placement in the 11th is very good for the chart as planets in the 11th tend to take on a positive form the chart irrespective. also it is the natural signifactor of that house so is comfortable there. however the natural connection of ven jup is not so great so it will continue to unsettle and disturb to some extent in its antar. however it will further your knowldege of astro etc to a v great extent. ven in 8th is also v condusive for the study of astrology and the occult.
    one amazing feature in your chart that ensures success is the fact that MOST of your planets are close to the midpoint of the lagna and the mid points of ALL houses are within 30 mins of each other. whenever a planet is close to the midpoint of ANY house-even if it doesnt aspect it etc, it has an effect upon that house in its dasha antar or prati or even transit.
    so you are surely destined for great success. rahu mon in the 10th dont allow for stability of your mind or your profession and create a lot of turmoil and restlessness.
    jan 2008 onwards will be your golden period…take care and god bless. keep in touch if i can help along your study of astrology in any way

    Thanks for your response. I’m very sorry; I certainly did not mean to be disrespectful at all. I apologise if it came across that way. It was not intentional.

    You have mentioned that the association of the 7th and 12th lord causes delayed marriage or break in marital chart. Since my marriage has been delayed, does this negate the possibility of a break?
    Can you please suggest something that I can do to be careful and to ensure there is no divorce ahead?

    Thank you.

    Hi Divya,Soumya,Basan

    My details are as follows:

    DOB: 06th June,1978
    Time : 06:35 am
    Place : Dehradun

    I want to know how my married life and career will progress??

  • Comment by BASAB ROY on April 24, 2007 at 12:46 pm

    Divya ji,
    firstly many many thanks to you for looking at my birthchart and giving a reading. you are absolutely right about my nature, nature wise i am a very restless person. about career you are right again because i haven’t started working as yet and very worried because it’s getting very late.
    would be really glad if you answer some queries i have regarding the chart. you said that jupiter is in the 8th house in the nakshatra of venus and the sub nakshatra of venus which is good as venus is the lagna lord. but venus is the 8th lord as well so will that be causing struggles in the antardasha of jupiter? you are absolutely right about my taking a lot of interest in astrology in the antardasha of jupiter because i did take a serious interest in astrology when the jupiter antardahsa started. you have said that from jan,2008 it will be the golden period of my life, would like to know what are the fators that made you come to the conclusion because that will again help me in my learning of the subject. please tell me which career will be suitable for me. what do you think about my venus dasha in general? is it good or bad. does 7th lord in the 12th house cause late marriage as it’s also there in my birthchart. i am really sorry about the long string of questions but so impressed with your predictions that can’t keep myself from asking further questions.
    would love to keep in touch as i always have some queries on astrology and always look for astrologers who can help me out on it. so thanks for the generous offer to help me out on my queries. so how do i contact you, if i have some queries sometime later, because you won’t be always there in this website?
    thanks once again for the reading.

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 24, 2007 at 1:21 pm

    ven will ALWAYS be a benefic for your chart. the lagnesh always give great results irrespect of which other house it owns. its placement in the 8th causes for you to have to exercise a little patience in life but it always gives v great results since it is my belief that planets in the 8th are particularly good for wealth, hidden knowledge and inheritence, if they are good for the chart. also your ven is aspected upon by yogkarak sat from 11th. that will also give it enormous strength.
    jup in the nak of ven will be improved even though ven is also lord of 8th.
    your ven jup ven period onwards life will be much better for you. the transits of sat into leo and rahu into capricon will also be hugely beneficial. however mars in gemini will cause some problems with regard to marriage and finance.
    your lord of 7th is in the 12th but will give results in the 11th. so this can delay the marriage but it wont break it. mars in some manner also is aspecting house of marriage and no planet ever breaks its own house.

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 24, 2007 at 1:28 pm

    yogkarak mars is also aspecting 7th house so things should be fine.
    but you MUST get the horoscope matched by a good astro before your marriage and take whatever remedial measures he suggests.
    and it is not as simple as just a points matching of the charts. that is the childs way of matching charts.
    by the grace of god and guru, things should be ok for you….

    hi S.Anand,
    thanks for the kind words. it means a lot to me.

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 24, 2007 at 10:08 pm

    mars moves forward in the chalit chart and then aspects the 7th. its placement is in the 11th but its effect will be in the 12th.
    also mon is sitting in the nakshatra of 7th lord. this creates an unholy connection between 7th and 12th. also bearing in mind that lord of 7th is in the 12th in any case. rahu has an aspect on the 7th house. that too is not the best feature for this chart since rahu is a natural maleafic for this chart in mundane astrology

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 24, 2007 at 10:13 pm

    s anand,
    astrology is a v logical and methodical science. i do NOT believe in any theory if it doesnt sound logical to me. also i dont believe in following any principle blindly. which is one of the reasons i dont give too much important to yogas as they exist. the combination that creates the yoga should have power in itself. its not as though some magical effect is found even when the planets appear to have no power in the chart merely through the presence of yogas found in some manuscipt.
    an astrologer must meditate deeply if he wishes to understand the inner workings of the planets. intuition, dedication, perception and the grace of a guru are the essential factors that go into creating success in the field of the occult.
    i hope you will pray for my deeper understanding of the nature of our 9 friends, 12 signs and 27 nakshatras. as i shall for you!

    im searching for a place on the net to connect with other astrologers and astrological communities. can you suggest any such site where i could meet other astrologers from around the world and exchange ideas and knowledge?
    and you are most welcome about the reading. it is my mission to help others gain some understanding of this holy science that i am such an ardent devotee of…

  • Comment by S. ANAND on April 25, 2007 at 4:25 am


    I agree with you that the textbook statement of yogas many a time doesn’t apply in toto because of various factors. Also, the aphorisms (sutras) given in the books are short and if someone has a heightened sense of intuition he/she can glean a lot more from that sloka/sutra.

    The ancient texts also talk about the qualifications of an astrologer and among them are, as you have stated, prayer and tapasya. Sincere and deep devotion to your devata (ishta, kula, aaradhya) will definitely give you the intuition needed. It also confers on you the spiritual strength to deal with problems and to provide remedies/solutions. I feel that logic and method are very important, but your intuition has to take over. Dr. BV Raman says this in his autobiography.

    I sincerely wish you and everybody who respects, values and tries to understand the vast cosmic clockwork that the Almighty grant us all that wisdom and intellect that our great Hindu sages possessed.

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 27, 2007 at 12:31 am

    you can expect a much better time after mid may 2007. jupiter mahadasha can give you success in the field of writing, teaching, research, investigation etc. jupiter is in exaltation but is combust and is very close to akarak mercury. this limits the effects obtained in its mahadasha. placement of saturn in 10th is not great. will slow down success in the professional field. but will eventually allow you to gain very satisfctory results after you have displayed the patience asked of you by this planet.
    forget the influence of the 3rd house and its effect on your chart. the 3rd lord becomes neutral for your chart by virtue of being lord of a kendra also. and the lagnesh aspects the 3rd house. can also give you a younger brother.
    horoscope will pick up in a much more satisfactory manner after jupiter saturn is in effect

  • Comment by Lokesh on April 27, 2007 at 6:59 am

    Hello Divya Ji,

    What is the impact of a planet moving forward in the chalit chart??? Does it start giving the effect of the house/sign where it has moved???


  • Comment by SeethaRamaKrishnan on April 27, 2007 at 12:26 pm

    Bill Gates has Jup (7th & 10th lord) in 3rd house. The 3rd lord Sun is debilitated in 5th house. Hence professionally successful ?

  • Comment by BASAB ROY on April 27, 2007 at 2:37 pm

    hi Divya ji,
    you wrote that i will be taking a lot of interest in the antardasha of jupiter but do you think that will be my career or will it have a different career and astrology will remain a hobby as it is now?
    even in my birthchart there is something about the 3rd house that i don’t understand.
    my 3rd lord jupiter is in the 11th house vargattoma and aspecting the 3rd house. sun+mer is aspecting the 3rd house from the 9th house and mars is aspecting the 3rd house from the 12th house. in my 3rd divisional chart there are 5 planets in the kendra and 2 in a trikona so 7 planets in auspicious houses. so the 3rd house it means have a powerful role, but what can it be? very curious to know, more so because i am running the antardasha of the 3rd lord jupiter now.
    my birth info: 14th july,1980 1:36 PM Calcutta, India.
    hoping to get a reply.
    thanks in advance

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 27, 2007 at 9:39 pm

    when a planet moves in the chalit chart, it will impact both the house it is placed in but more so the house it has moved to. and the planet doesnt give the effect OF the house. it gives its effect IN the house it is in. subtle difference but an important one.
    one of the most important features of astrology that i am not seeing anyone raising here is the nakshatra chart. the nakshatras really determine the nature of the planet and its impact upon the chart. its not just the placement of a planet in a particular house that creates success or failure. it is also the nakshatra that creates or mars the success of the chart.
    would help to focus a bit on that too…

  • Comment by Lokesh on April 28, 2007 at 7:55 am

    What is the impact of having a 10th house Ketu in Pisces??? Does it indicate a career in spiritualism???

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 28, 2007 at 1:02 pm

    not necessarily. ketu is a mokshakarak planet but it is not necessary that it give a life in spiritualism. depending on the aspects upon it, and its nakshatra situation, it could give a career in just about any field. many great film directors etc too have been created through ketu (just to give an idea of what type of different results can be got through ketu)
    thumb rule-any planet can give ANY result based on its functional nature in the chart

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 28, 2007 at 1:26 pm

    from your chart dont see a future as an astrologer. you will always remain closely connected with astro but will be pursuing this only in your spare time.

  • Comment by BASAB ROY on April 28, 2007 at 5:26 pm

    thanks a lot for the reply. so if i don’t take astrology as my career then what do you think will be my career as i am not doing anything else now except studying astrology. really confused about what career destiny has chosen for me. any help on this will be appreciated. sorry for bothering you with my queries.

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 29, 2007 at 2:53 am

    you could go into media or publishing or even some field that involves your communication skills. placement of rahu mon can also indicate travel related to work and even shift to another city.
    the career aspect of your chart is very strong. the venus jup period will give you average results only. its after this that you will really shine in your life. great success is indicated on the personal professional and financial front.
    and yes, you will also develop enormous skills as an astrologer. so keep at it

  • Comment by Lokesh on April 29, 2007 at 10:22 am

    Hello Saumya Ji,
    How important is Navansh in determining the future??
    It is said that Rashi Chart is the tree and Navansh is like it’s fruit. We become like our navansh as we grow older. Should both the charts be looked into for predictions. Is only sign placement important when looking into Navansh chart or is house placement equally important??


  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 29, 2007 at 2:37 pm

    i know the question is addressed to saumya but ill attempt an answer too.
    i look at the navamsha just to see the NATURE of the planets in the birth chart. also the connection between the lagna lord and the navamsha lord.
    i do not look at the signs to such a great extent in that chart. planets sitting together in the navamsha also develop an understanding between them irrespective of their mundane nature or nature in the birth chart. the navamsha is the secret hidden nature of planets revealed

  • Comment by BASAB ROY on April 29, 2007 at 8:13 pm

    thanks for the predictions. would like to know why you said i can go into media or publishing or some work related to communication skills as it will help me in learning astrology better. by comunication skills are you talking about oral communication or written communication?
    you are talking about success in personal front but you said marriage is just okay for me, did you mean something else when you meant personal front. good to hear that i will develop some good skills in astrology.
    you said that the jupiter period will be average and the saturn period will be better. let me guess why you said it. please correct me wherever i am going wrong. i think you said that jupiter won’t give great results because jupiter is a functional malefic for libra lagna and it is also not a friend of the dasha i am running now i.e venus. according to you saturn will be much better because saturn is the raja yoga karak planet for my lagna and is in the 11th house. it is also a friend of the dasha i am running now i.e venus. in the dashamsha saturn is the 9th and 10th lord and is in the lagna. am i going on the right tracks.

  • Comment by Divya Jyoti on April 30, 2007 at 12:45 am

    you are absolutely on the right track.
    your technique of reading is very good!

  • Comment by Lokesh on April 30, 2007 at 12:50 am

    Hello Divya Ji,

    Thanks for your reply. I was wondering that when
    u analyze a Navansha chart, do you also look at the house a planet is placed in and do you consider yogas
    like gajkesari, neechabhanga etc. in the navansh chart.Also, what if the navansh chart shows a positive relation between two planets and the rashi shows a negative one??? e.g Jupiter and Moon forming a GajaKesari yoga in navansh chart and having a 2-12 relation in the rashi chart???


  • Comment by BASAB ROY on April 30, 2007 at 12:39 pm

    thanks a lot for the compliment. it means a lot to me, especially because you are an astrologer by profession.
    but you didn’t tell me why you think that media, publishing house or a job where my communication skills will be required is suitable for me. really interested in knowing that. and by communication do you mean oral communication or written communication?

  • Comment by Shikha M on May 3, 2007 at 12:21 pm

    Will a powerful third house come at the cost of trouble in profession and finance if it is a leo ascendant and venus lord of the 10th house is in the 3rd house in its own sign?

    Hello every one,

    can anybody tell me when the 7th & 10th lord i.e. Mercury is in 6th house-Taurus in conjunct with 9th lord – sun and 6th and 11th lord – venus, how the job/career growth would be. of course, this is the position in my chart. recently, i had a chance to go for promotion. till march end, i had the inclination of going to attend the exam. but by april, my mood had totally changed and i did not even incline to appear for the exam let alone taking promotion. why is it so? Running Jupiter dasa is also not taking off very favourably so far.



  • Comment by Binod Sharma on May 24, 2007 at 3:25 pm

    Dear Divyaji ,

    I have been going thro the various messages and queries which you have been addressng from the past almost a month. I am impressed at the kind of knowledge you have in this subject. This has made me feel that you could be one person – who can actually analyse my chart and suggest me the basic reasons for the various ups & downs in my career ( is it due to the 3rd house ?)and a rather luckless life with badhas in every other activity I venture into – and also predict the future course of my life ( in relation to career ) .

    This may seem to be too much to ask for but I am hoping against hope that some badhak will not interfere in your addressing my queries – the answers to which I am trying to search for from the past few years ( more than 10 years )particulary after my marriage on 30th May , 1996.
    My birth details are as follows :18.11.1965 , calcutta , 4.30 A.M.

    I have my jupiter in saggitarius in the 3rd house with a libra lagna. My 10th lord is the moon which is in my 8th house conjunct saturn and mars. I have currently entered my jupiter dasha and I am wondering what is in store for me careerwise: I have read that jupiter in a libra lagna is weakened by the fact it is lord of the 3rd and 6th house. Will a strong benefic in the 3rd make it difficult to succeed in my career? I am wondering if being in its rulership/moolatrikona sign will somehow make this period positive.

    Here is my birth info:
    march 19 1972
    new york city, usa
    20:25 (8:25pm)

    by the way my 10th harmonic chart of career has a scorpio lagna with 10th house ruler, sun, in the 3rd house conjunct an exalted mars (which is ruler of the 1st and 6th)

    thank you!

    Dear Basabji and Anandji,
    Being a keen student of astrology your articles are both inspiring and enlightening.I would be very grateful if somebody could throw light on my horoscope.My birth details are 7th november 1979,at Pune in Maharashtra at 5:58 pm.My lagna chart has aries ascendant with moon in the 3rd house in mrigasira naksatra,jupiter mars n rahu in the 5th and all of them in magha nakshatra,saturn in the 6th in uttar phalguni nakshatra,sun in the 7th in vishaka naksatra,venus and mercury in the 8th both in anuradha and ketu in the 11th in satabishaka.My navamsa chart has libra ascendant with moon mercury and venus in 1st house, saturn and ketu in the 4th house, sun and mars in the 7th, and jupiter and rahu in the 10th thus all planets in the kendras,and both jupiter(in cancer) and sun(in aries) exalted.I am very keen to know about my professional prospects and whether there are any yogas for fame in the chart.Will be very very grateful if someone responds.Can I expect an answer?

  • Comment by bupinder on July 18, 2007 at 3:12 am

    dear anandji/basabji and other astrologers,

    i have great intrest in astrology and even my father had great knowledge of astrology.i am in learning stage.i want to know some doubts in my horoscope.

    first of all my details are

    date of birth 20sep 1981
    time 5:15 am
    place is batala(punjab)

    in my chart i have mars and rahu in 12th house.mars in at fifth from aries and at ninth from scorpio.and he is the lord of 4th and 9th it yogakarka for me.

    also my moon is in taurus in tenth house.along with it i have mercury in second with saturn,jupiter and sun in virgo.venus is in its own sign in 3rd house in libra.

    my jupiter mahadasa is also just started.

    can i expect good professional rise in coming time.i am in bahrain nowadays.working here.but i didnt get appropriate position as per my qualification.i read somewhere that venus in third house is not good for money matters if lagna is leo.

    but as moon is in 10 house in taurus,and other planets are in second house,should i expect any better results?

    pls do discuss and reply my query.

    Muktaji and Bupinderji:

    Since both of you are keen students of astrology and have great interest in the subject, please share your own analysis of your chart. That will help the discussion.


    S. Anand

  • Comment by S. ANAND on July 31, 2007 at 6:15 am

    In fact, you could analyze each other’s charts as well and post it here. I will email my friend Basab Roy to check your responses.

    I hope to hear and learn from you.

  • Comment by mukta das on August 1, 2007 at 1:17 pm

    Anandji and Basabji,
    I think its a very good idea and I would be happy to get back with an analysis of Bhupinderji’s chart and my own although everything I know is selftaught and according to me not very adequate to enter into a discussion with stalwarts like you.But Iwill most certainly try..Thanks for your valuable suggestion,I agree that it would add both insight as well as interest to the discussion.Hope to get back by tomorrow.

  • Comment by S. ANAND on August 5, 2007 at 7:01 am


    I am by no stretch of imagination a stalwart; I don’t even call myself an astrologer. I am merely a student and researcher. I am here to learn and I am sure there is something I can learn from your analyses of your and Bupinderji’s charts.

    Thanks are due to Kshitij Sharma, to whom this site and notebook belong. People should be writing him and not me or Basab.

    Kshitij: My apologies – I dont mean to “hijack” your site.

    – S. Anand

    Anand is being modest. He is one of the most knowledgeable guys around. I will let him “hijack” the discussion anytime he wants πŸ™‚


  • Comment by mukta das on August 10, 2007 at 1:17 pm

    Hi all,
    Let me clarify that I did not mean to overlook Kshitijji when I addressed Anandji and Basabji.Actually I was not aware that the site belonged to Kshitijji.A particular search brought me directly to this page where a lot of ppl were referring to Anandji and Basabji.Impressed by the depth of der knowledge i referred to them assuming the site was theirs.Am sorry if my actions showed any disrespect towards anyone-they certainly were not meant to.Will get back soon with an analysis of Bhupinderji’s chart.Havent been able to get down to it as yet.

    Jupiter is also retrograde motion in 3rd house.


  • Comment by Utkarsh on September 20, 2007 at 8:17 am


    What really caught my attention as I was browsing was a mention of the third house. Honestly that is one house which always raises questions in my mind. I have Rahu, Jupiter & Mars all in the third house. I hear different things and when I read them thats different too altogether. At the end of the day I am thinking is it a good thing or bad and this is I must say intrigues me tremendously. As they say that Jupiter in the third house for a Gemini ascendant is that Jupiter becomes debilitated thats y i wear Pukhraj. On the other hand I also hear that Mars for me is ‘strong’ am thinking if that has something to do with ‘communication’. Rahu being in this house has made me come far for my place of birth. I mean literally speaking I will be 28 this year and out of that I was 14 when I left India and am there just briefly whenever I am there. I tend to believe(don’t know whether it is true or not)that such a placement tends to keep one away from their family. If struggle in profession is said to be the case due to this placement yes certainly there has been a lot of struggle and believe it or not there still is. I would gladly receive some insight into this since I know this is playing a major role in my life. Infact my next Maha dasha is going to be that of Mars followed by Rahu. and currently with Rahu as my antardsaha with Moon Mahadasha once again I wonder……..some say there is a danger with regards to so and so and some say Rahu is a shadow planet with no real effect. I always wonder how its going to be since I never understood their placement in my third house.

    My details just in case:
    28th Dec, 1979
    19:05 -time of birth
    bombay, india

    I often ask an astrologer I always refer to but I never got a satisfactory answer. (especially when i think the role of Rahu in my life….good thing or bad??)

  • Comment by S Kumar on November 26, 2007 at 12:04 pm

    Dear Friend,

    Many people spend a lot of time in Astrology, as a hobby or professionally.

    Do you really believe that you can really predict anything, with a full confidence?

    Do not you think, most time is spent in justifying events, rather than predicting?

    Please do not get offended. I myself is a student of astrology for 20 years, with waxing and waning interest, due to so many contradictions. In my view, one can prove any event, good or bad, in any horoscope, when studies retrospectively.

    After more than 20 years of study, I am still skeptical.

    Any comments?

  • Comment by Vijay on December 7, 2007 at 8:45 pm

    Good topic, very interesting as third house is generally neglected by most astrologers. I have gemini lagna and 4 planets in 3rd house (jupiter, saturn, mars, rahu). As tenth house lord jupiter is in 3rd, and also I have 3rd house lord sun in 11th house (exaltation), I am finding it difficult to get a job even though I am currently pursuing PhD degree. I have venus in lagna, which makes me passionate about poetry and literature, and as third house represents intention to study, I have almost been studying one thing or the other through out my life. Still, somehow I am not able to get a job, I dont know what will happen to me now after completing my PhD. I am hoping to take a plunge into writing and try my luck there. My lagna lord mercury is in 12th house.

  • Comment by Nitin Kashyap on February 10, 2008 at 6:03 pm

    As you said about third house, once we should have to clear what is success ? According to Maharishi Parashara third house is Trishday bhaav which is quite malefic . but when maharishi said so in that era, our ethics were totally different. At that time, moral character and Santosh(satisfaction) is prime things . Third house show braveness and feeling to attempt things again and again. but ya if you are talking about financial condition third house should be strong. I have two reasons for it : first third house is second from second and other reason is it is upachay (Vridhi) bhaav.

    Hi Divya Ji,

    Kindly help me.

    I am having a troubled career for the last 6 years.
    I am a LEO ascendant. My lagna lord is SUN.

    Pls suggest if wearing a DIAMOND would stengthen my VENUS and would improve my career significantly.

    My chart is as follows.

    1H > LEO
    2H > VIRGO
    3H > LIBRA
    10H> TAURUS
    11H> GEMINI
    12H> KETU > CANCER

    Kindly let me know if you need other details.

    Thanks and Regards

  • Comment by Bhaskaran on July 7, 2008 at 12:30 am

    This is a very useful analysis but seen in isolation.

    I saw a particular question from leo ascendant, but it is no matter for goodness for leo, unless Shukra / venus has nivarti / cure.
    For Leo lagna, Saturn and Venus go Drig dasha, and hence they shd have been spoiled and got a bad placement and got cured.
    then their dasa period wud do good but suddenly, by bagawatis grace.
    So for Leo ascendant, if saturn in debiliated and lifted up in navamsa, and similarly for venus, for eg., he may be conjoined moon in twelveth (a bad combination) but a good combination if Sun is in Leo that to with mercury/jupiter in 2nd, providing flanking experience for the ascendant lord making the horoscope strong….
    i cant imagine venus being deblilitated in virgo 2nd house for virgo making the money and family matters worse for leo…
    so this third house analysis particularly of relevance to only leo ascendants (they are worst affected as venus is 3rd AND 10th house lord) and shd be seen together with other planet placements.
    of course a strong ascendant lord, and trines place a VERY VITAL ROLE..
    final few words
    as Sri Ramachandra prabu held, who had 8 planets in exalted positions, suffered the greatest of the human life.]

    cheers πŸ™‚

    Nice article by Nitin Ji and compliments to K. Sharma ji for making a site for friendly interaction.

    Every one is invited and requested to educate on how to undo the adverse effects of strong third house on the 9th house and 10th house. For example in Mithun lagan a strong third house with Sun, Mercury and Saturn (Mercury and Satrun together and 20 degree ahead of Sun)and strong 9th house Kumbh Rashi with Retrograde Guru (no kandryaa dosh to Guru) Rahu in 10th house, Moon and Ketu in 4th house with full drishti of Moon on 10th house and Mars in 5th house with full drishti on the labh asthan 11th house.

    Appreciate the learned input of every one, Nitin Ji and Sharma ji yours also. Thank you. Dr. Singh

    I read the article well I fully agree to the contribution made by this article- we often ignore the importance 3H. However even the example given in the aricle belongs to my son dob 2.2.1977 Time 08:03:00AM Jammu(J&K). The boy was not atall good in education but he has strong trait of writing. He did his hotel management but switched over to BPO financial line, has not been much successful so far. Pressedfrom all side even his marriage ahas been a wreck. He has now married another girl from same profession and sofar been able to move a year successfully. Wasted lot my money in repayment of his debts. In good terms with me only when away otherwise is very harsh and arrogant in his behaviour through out. His horoscope is with Aquarius lagna and Mars exalted on one side and Ven exalted on other side. Even his Jup is with Ketu in 3H(Aries sign).His Saturn(R) placed in 6h. Now of late he is planning to go ahead in doing foreign language and moving to new location. Inspite of all this he is religious and close to his mother. He lost his brother while abroad with me. I feel that he is bound to least remain stable in his career. Perhaps even waste all the money/property which his father leaves out for the family.
    May add that I am also astrolger and ICAS faculty member please. Shall be grateful if more is added to this on his future. particularly after he is able to complete additional language. He is currently running Mer dasha. Tks

    Dear sir,
    The discussion about 3rd house is interesting. My Asc is Aries and hence Mercury is 3rd and 6th lord. The following are details.
    DOB 13-4-40
    TOB 6-18 am
    POB Kakinada (AP)
    Though Mercury gets his debilitation cancelled, I always find some problem whenever he is the lord of dasa or bhukthi. Can you please help me by throwing light on this aspect.

    I am confused about my third house and my wife’s third house. I have debiliated moon in third (which is 11 lord) and its aspected by Mars as a 4th aspect from 12th house. Is indicating Neechbhanga or Neechbhanga rajyog? Will my profession boost up in foreign country (causing neechbhanga from 12th house-foreign connection)? My wife has sun debiliated in sixth house and its moving ahead in chalit chart. But she has exalted moon in Ascendent. She has any neechbhanga or neechbhanga rajyog? As per rule i tried to found but couldnt find it. Anywy, you experts can comment on our chart.

    My detail: 09th March 1980, 08:10 pm, ahmedabad, Gujarat, india

    My wife’s detail : 13th November 1981, 06:11 pm, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India.

    Kindly help me.

    In my daughter’s horoscope, Jupiter is located in the sixth house in Capricon (Neech Raashi). I have shown the horoscope to two learned astrologers who have given me opposite advice to improve the effect of Jupiter.
    As per one astrologer, since Jupiter is in Neech Raashi, my daughter should wear white Pukhraj in platinum ring whereas the other astrologer says that due to Neech Bhang Raj Yog, she should wear yellow Pukhraj in Gold ring.
    Position of various planets in the horoscope is as under:-
    House Raashi Planet in the House

    1H LEO
    2H VIRGO
    9H ARIES ———- RAHU
    10H TAURUS———- MOON
    11H GEMINI
    12H CANCER

    Kindly let me know which stone would suit her best.

    Thanks and Regards

  • Comment by Pallavi Bhabhra on May 6, 2019 at 5:07 pm


    I beg to differ here, according to my understanding and analysis, a good 3rd house and its lord is required for success in not just job but also in business. This house governs ambition, courage, drive, passion, risk taking ability, good communication skills, without which you can’t succeed in kaliyuga. I have seen people not realising their full potential cuz their 3rd house was weak. Ofcourse other bhavas have to be strong too, but we can’t undermine the importance of this bhava. In kaliyuga upchaya sthana and kam trikona becomes very important then satyuga, when most of our astrology related text was written by our great sages, rishis.

    So my suggestion is to look at the functional nature of all the planets, their positions, associations before making any prediction. 7th is maraka bhav theory will distort the overall analysis of the chart.

  • Comment by Parth Nayanesh Patel on July 4, 2019 at 4:39 pm

    My son’s (Parth) D. O. B. Is 12/09/1999, 18:08 p. m., Ahmedabad
    I think the point is case study
    (1) In 3rd house he has vakri Saturn conjunction with vakri Jupiter in mesh rashi
    (2) In 10th house Mars in Scorpio
    As per my experience with my son he is very sincere regarding career and is doing hard work compare to other students. His academic results also excellent till date. He is doing B. Tech in mechanical engineering. He also think for abroad. He has no siblings.
    What would be the results of vakri planets conjunction in 3rd house

  • Comment by S Madhava Kumar on April 9, 2020 at 7:22 pm

    Dear Learned friends,

    Mine is Gemini Lagna, with Retro Mars in third house, Neecha Moon and Ketu in 6 House, Saturn in 9 house, Sun, Mer, Venus in 10 House and Rahu & Jupiter in 12 house.
    Now, my question is How will be Retro Mars dasha for me which will be starting from in another 2 years.
    Yes, I am also into Vedic Astrology by virtue of Intuition and am a Banker by Profession.
    Very keen to know the effects of REtro Mars dasha which is in 3rd house of natal chart.

    Request pl.

    S Madhavakumar

  • Comment by Pallavi B on March 25, 2022 at 4:59 pm

    My interpretation is different. According to me strong 3rd house lord blesses one with tremendous courage, will power, ambition, and drive to achieve their goals and fight with any adverse situation. 3rd and 6th house lord both are important to survive and excel in kaliyuga. When 10th lord establishes a strong connection with 3rd house and its lord and when they are in good dignity then it gives a good career in performing arts, music, writing, communication, marketing and sales. So just because 10th house lord is sitting in 3rd house doesn’t indicate a bad career. I am country head for marketing and communication of a renowned German company. I have my 10th house lord moon in 3rd house, which is being aspected by the 3rd house lord Jupitar sitting in another kama trikona 7th house. I have rahu in its own nakshtra swati in lagna. Infact 3rd and 6th house is your own drive, willpower without which no one can achieve great heights in today’s highly competitive and challenging world. Of course other planets good placement is also important. All self made businessman or professionals have a strong 3rd house.
