As 11th house lord of Earning is in the 3rd house of Business, it shows that your earning and gains in life is coming through Business or Self Efforts. But as both houses involved are Upachaya Houses which improve with age, one may go towards Business/Self Efforts in his 30s. This also shows that your siblings are reason behind your efforts in life.

It also shows that siblings have important role in person's Skills and Business. Desires will be fulfilled only through self effort, either through Business or through utilizing talent/skills.

Sun - Suppose it is a Libra Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 11th house with Leo sign and sits in the 3rd house in the sign of Sagittarius. This shows that your authority/confidence in life comes only when you get higher education and start seeing things from broader perspective. Here, elder sibling or father show authority over the younger sibling and you may be required to do justice. It also shows that your own ego is too much to work in a team setting and hence you may need to work on your own. It also shows that your father instilled all the values and morals in you. This person would be great in teaching and philosophizing things.
Moon - So it is Virgo Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 11th house with Cancer sign and sits in 3rd house in Scorpio, where it is debilitated. If Moon is nearby the exact degree of debilitation, it shows someone who might have very transformative relations with siblings.

Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Venus rules 11th & 4th house and sits in 3rd house in Virgo sign, where it is debilitated. If Venus is near the exact debilitation degree, then this can be a situation where person gets into a Business with some friends/siblings, specially female, and lose the money and Business as Venus is in weakest placement. Otherwise, this position can make you someone go into Business of Finance and Wealth. They can be in Banks, Financial Institutes or Stock Traders on their own.

Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 3rd house in Aquarius. As 11th house & 11th sign Aquarius are getting connected here, this person will be all about working for higher goals, social welfare and working to make difference in this world. As Venus is in friendly sign, person will earn a lot from Entrepreneurship, siblings and friends. Their Business will either be highly creative, related to new age media and communication or related with Female Products. With both positions of Venus, they will be very pleasant in communications.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 11th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 11th & 2nd house and sits in 3rd house in Aries Sign. This shows a person who earns and gains through his knowledge, education and counselling skills. When Jupiter and Mars gets connected, knowledge, hope and inspiration gets connected with will power, efforts and courage. So, this shows someone working as a great motivational speaker, preacher or counselor. They are guide to their siblings. They are kind of Guru for everyone in local community and everyone comes to seek advice on various matters.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Jupiter rules 8th & 11th house and sits in 3rd house in Cancer, where it is exalted. This is the best position among all as most benefic planet is at its highest dignity. A person who earns and gains in life through counselling, teaching and preaching. As Jupiter also rules 8th house of Occult, they are the best minds in Occult and Mystic World. Excellent Placement.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 11th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 11th house lord, Saturn in 3rd house (for Pisces/Aries Ascendants respectively) is one position where person must follow his own business as career as Saturn limits their ability to work with groups of people or teams. They are considered too strict or harsh to work with others. Hence, sooner or later they do their own work. They never want to speak much but they like to write a lot. When they write, they can write heaviest of books or lengthiest of Articles. Person won't have good relations with younger siblings till mid 30s . From mid 30s he ends up having his own work. So, it happens with delay but it happens surely because Saturn in 3rd house person is never able to do jobs whole life. Sooner or later he has to start his own work. They realize their skills and Business/Marketing aptitude with delay in life.
Rahu - If Rahu is 11th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 3rd house in Gemini then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Gemini in 3rd house will transform Rahu as Mercury as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Gemini in 3rd house basically shows a person who is highly communicative. They are the smartest salesman. As Rahu is illusion, they will be able to spread the illusion with their communications and sell anything in market. They will be in their own work only. They might be in inventing new age ways of communications like Whatsapp etc. Highly innovative Business but can be very deceiving too.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 11th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 3rd house in Pisces then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it actually separates person from his siblings, either physically or mentally. They never find the balance in relationship with siblings. At the same time, they remain concerned for their siblings. This person may not be too interested in running a business. They may also not be too willing to travel around. It shows someone who has very spiritual way of communication. They don't like to talk much but when they communicate then it is always in a spiritual way. So, they can do good as Spiritual Counselors. Ketu is in Pisces where it finds most peace. As Pisces is sign of Spirituality, this makes in more obvious that they will do well in any work related with Spirituality and Counselling.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
