Today, 3rd house lord sitting in 11th house.
So first of all, let's see what 3rd house and 11th house represent -
3rd house - It is house of your communication skills, neighbors, short distance travels, younger siblings, marketing, announcements, collecting information, hobbies and skills, self-efforts, business, courage etc. At the same time, as 3rd house is house of efforts, this house shows that results of this house will come only when person will put lots of efforts for a long time.
11th house represents Elder Siblings, Large Organizations, Huge Structures, Higher Goals and Purposes for the Universe, Network Circle, Entrepreneurship, Friends, Gains, Income and Earnings etc
One thing to remember here is that 11th house is one of Upachaya Houses, i.e. House # 3, 6, 10 & 11. Upachaya Houses improve with time. It means any planet in these houses improves in results with age and real good result is seen from a person's 30s. Also, all the malefic planets provide very good results in Upachaya Houses but results may be seen in 30s.
Now, what does it mean to have 3rd house lord sitting in 11th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 3rd house of your horoscope is sitting in the 11th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 3rd house lord sitting in 11th house?
This position simply means that person's efforts, communications and skills are going into large organisations, big group of people and they are gaining out of it. It also shows someone dedicating his skills and hobbies for a higher cause. It shows that your younger siblings are taking up the role of older sibling. Its most generic interpretation is about people working with large corporations and earning out of it. But if we look at the concept of Higher Goals for the World, it shows someone who is in entrepreneurship for a common benefit for all as 3rd house is house of Business and 11th house is house of Entrepreneurship and higher goals.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 11th house lord as 3rd house lord is going in 11th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 3rd house Lord in 11th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Gemini Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 3rd house with Leo sign and sits in the 11th house in the sign of Aries, where it is exalted. It surely shows someone in position of Authority in corporate world and large organization. This person wants to communicate with people of authority only. It shows gains from father too and father was instrumental in developing your networking circle. Extreme gains from authorities on cards.
Moon - So it is Taurus Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 3rd house with Cancer sign and sits in 11th house in Pisces. Now, this position links person's efforts and skills with a spiritual cause. May be person is member of some highly spiritual organization or movement like Iskcon or Osho International with a higher goal of creating spiritual awareness among people. Not only mother is very spiritual in this case but person's own communication is spiritual too. They can gain a lot from there spiritual writing or spiritual networking circles.
Mars - Mars can be 3rd house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aquarius Ascendant - So if it is Aquarius Ascendant, Mars rules 3rd & 10th house and sits in 11th house in Sagittarius sign. This can show someone who is putting his efforts in the field of higher education, religion and philosophy and working in large institution and gaining from it. This person will be very forceful about his views on religion, almost adamant. This can show that brother has become source of gains and incomes. This can also show someone working on his own and teaching people about religion and higher values in life.
Virgo Ascendant - Now if it is Virgo Ascendant, Mars rules 3rd & 8th house and sits in 11th house in Cancer sign, where it is debilitated. Now, everything can go the other way if Mars is very close to real debilitation degree. It shows a person who has no courage to start his own work. It shows that brother proved to be the one taking away the money of native. It shows that this native can get into bitter fights while communicating in his circles. This person only knows that he needs to fight but doesn't know how to fight?
Mercury - Mercury also can be 3rd house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, Mercury rules 3rd & 6th houses and sits in 11th house in Aquarius. Corporate world and gains from corporations. It is as simple as this. Mercury being clever and calculative business minded person doesn't care too much about higher goals and common good for all. All he knows that he needs to make money and he seeks the easiest way to make money. So, gains are coming from corporate. Communications are becoming huge part of their work. Siblings are proving to be helpful for gains.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, then Mercury rules 3rd & 12th house and sits in 11th house in Taurus. This shows someone who is working as an accountant or auditor in large organizations. Again Mercury is in friendly sign of Taurus. So, all I said in above para applies here too. Person will be in Finance related work.
Venus - Venus also can be 3rd house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Venus rules 3rd & 8th house and sits in 11th house in Capricorn sign. This shows native has bigger network circle of females, which help the person in gains. Venus itself is wealth, so it shows wealth coming from large organizations and big groups. These people have a very charming way of speaking through which they almost swindle others for their own gains. It shows that wife of native may be working in corporate world.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Venus rules 3rd & 10th house and sits in 11th house in Gemini. Again, same things getting repeated as Venus is in friendly sign. These people like to keep very balanced communications with everyone, even up to the extent where they have to become hypocrite to keep other's happy with their sugar coated communications. Through these kind of communications, they make good gains in large organizations.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 3rd house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 6th house and sits in 11th house in Leo Sign. These people can work as Finance Analyst or Planner in big organisations. They may get a job to visit all the departments of an organization and give counseling on financial planning for the year. As Leo is sign of Govt and Authority, it shows someone working under Govt in finance field and making policies.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 12th house and sits in 11th house in Scorpio. This position shows a very transformative relation with siblings, either older or younger. This shows that person may be working for an organization which may have very chaotic work environment or bad work timings. Gains of person remains fluctuating, sometimes it is very good, sometimes not so.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 3rd house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 3rd house lord, Saturn in 11th house (for Scorpio/Sagittarius Ascendants respectively) shows that person may not have older siblings. If he has, their contribution in native's life is negligible.It shows someone who had hard time in gaining money initially in life. They had to work too hard to earn even too little. So, in a way these people know the true value of money in life. As always, they gain better in life once they enter in their 30s if they put their hard work in 20s.
Rahu - If Rahu is 3rd house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 11th house in Libra sign then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Libra in 11th house makes a person to work in technology and science field. Now, this they can do by working under any organization or through their own business as Libra is sign of Business. But they are born scientists who look to bring in change in world with their new inventions. As much as Rahu in Libra makes person obsessed for relationship but at the same time they desire a perfect relationship. So, it so happens that they don't get into any relationship seriously until and unless they find that perfection.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 3rd house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 11th house in Cancer 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 separates person from the concept of working in corporate :). They are least bothered about money and hence universe blesses them with lots of money as we always get that thing in abundance which we least desire. Ketu in Cancer shows that person has some deep routed emotional issues from his childhood or regarding his mother.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
