So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 3rd house Lord in 2nd house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Gemini Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 3rd house with Leo sign and sits in the 2nd house in the sign of Cancer. It shows that person was involved in creative arts which helped him earn his money. Also, Father was the main person who helped him in setting up his own business. May be it was a family business started by father, which was taken up by native. Communication of person brings him authority in world and family. Family Environment is very emotional and caring.
Moon - So it is Taurus Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 3rd house with Cancer sign and sits in 2nd house in Gemini. Clearly shows a person who has 1000 business ideas running in mind at the same time. A very creative person, a very soothing speaker and a possibility of making money through singing. Besides that, these people are good in writing. Mother becomes a source of wealth here. It is better for these people to be a businessman, because mind is always business oriented.
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 2nd house in Pisces sign. In this situation, siblings specially brothers will help the person in making wealth. It shows that person's energy and actions are going into things like Yoga, Martial Arts etc and through these skills he earns money. It also shows a person with very direct speech, they will never beat around the bushes and speak whatever comes into heart. They will be more a protector of wealth rather than maker of wealth.
Virgo Ascendant - Now if it is Virgo Ascendant, Mars rules 3rd & 8th house and sits in 2nd house in Libra sign. Besides generic things said about Mars above, this placement shows someone getting involved in family business. This also shows a kind of power struggle, fights and argument due to family wealth, specially with brothers. It shows someone in finance/wealth related business.
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 2nd house in Taurus. This is surely a position of a writer making wealth through his skills of writing. This also can be a position for someone who is in finance/commerce related business but it will be great if person can stick with communication related business. It also shows an environment of family business.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, then Mercury rules 3rd & 12th house and sits in 2nd house in Leo. It shows a person who has very analytical or perfect way of speaking which not only provides the wealth but also an authoritative position. This can make a person a Govt or Political Spokesperson as Leo is sign of Authority/Govt. They have very perfect way of speaking or writing where you can't find a flaw of a single word. They can be great editors too.
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 2nd house in Aries sign. In both positions of Venus, it will show a very creative person, who earns through creativity. As Venus itself represents Creativity and Wealth, this position brings the same. This position can give someone very good voice and hence he can be a very good singer as 2nd house represents throat area. Otherwise also, they will have very pleasant way of speaking. They will be very wealthy.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Venus rules 3rd & 10th house and sits in 2nd house in Virgo, where it is debilitated. Here also, person earns through his creativity and skills but he doesn't find satisfaction as Venus is debilitated. He always feels that he is earning lesser than what he should. As planet of wealth is in the sign of details, this position shows someone in financial analyst position in jobs or in any job where he has to deal with numbers and calculation. Person needs to learn patience in money matters here.
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 2nd house in Scorpio Sign. It shows someone who can earn his wealth through counseling and advising on matters of higher learning, philosophy and occult as Jupiter is sitting in sign of Scorpio. Jupiter in 2nd house shows someone who is finance planner or adviser for others. But Jupiter as 3rd house lord really shows someone who is teacher/counselor. Jupiter in 2nd house makes a person very rich.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 12th house and sits in 2nd house in Aquarius. Here also Jupiter becomes a Teacher/Counselor and gets good money in life but here person may work for large institution as Teacher or Finance Guru. Jupiter in Aquarius certainly shows an online teacher, someone who earns by teaching people through webinars and uploading videos or through blogs. Again good money but as Aquarius is ruled by Saturn, good results can be seen only in 30s. Good wealth is guaranteed.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 3rd house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 3rd house lord, Saturn in 2nd house (for Scorpio/Sagittarius Ascendants respectively) shows that person will get wealth in life only through sheer hard work and labor. Money won't come easy in life. May be in early life, person had seen unimaginable poverty and that made him very realistic about money. They have to utilize their skills for a long duration consistently to hope for any wealth coming out of it. But if they are willing to put their best work for a consistent long duration then Saturn will reward them more than they ever expected.
Rahu - If Rahu is 3rd house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 2nd house in Capricorn then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Capricorn in 2nd house shows that no matter how much obsessive a person is to gain wealth, he will never get it easily because Rahu is in Saturn ruled sign and that too Capricorn is a sign of hard work. So, here Rahu will work as Saturn and push the person towards many hardships before giving him wealth eventually. So, Rahu and Saturn both work here together. Rahu makes person obsessive about wealth but Saturn as ruler of Capricorn delays the arrival of wealth till 30s and asks for more severe hard work.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 3rd house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 2nd house in Libra 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 the concept of hoarding and gaining wealth. And that's why, people with Ketu in 2nd or 11th house end up as the richest people in the world because whatever you don't care for in life comes very easy to you. They don't care for wealth, so wealth comes easy. Ketu in 2nd house also becomes a karaka of 2nd marriage, so best way to avoid any such situation is to marry your spouse twice. It may also give a malefic speech to person.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
