Virgo Ascendant - Now if it is Virgo Ascendant, Mars rules 3rd & 8th house and sits in 5th house in Capricorn sign, where it is exalted.

Mercury's generic nature may not be too good for stable love relationship.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, then Mercury rules 3rd & 12th house and sits in 5th house in Scorpio. Whenever Mercury and Scorpio gets mixed, there is always a possibility of being an Astrologer. Besides that these people can be very good in betting and gambling.

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 5th house in Cancer sign. These people are emotionally involved in their love matters and if they don't find that connect then it is a useless relation for them.

Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Venus rules 3rd & 10th house and sits in 5th house in Sagittarius. Here also person would have same level of creativity and desire to be in love relationship but a major difference will be their philosophical attitude These people are not impressed by looks and money. They will ask their partners about the different books they have read and also what different places they have visited. They love studying about philosophical stuff.
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 5th house in Aquarius Sign. Now, planet of education is coming into house of education. As Jupiter is in Aquarius sign, this person will be more interested towards computer or technology related education. A great possibility of becoming a teacher/professor here. These people would like to use their education for higher good of all. They may be teachers in any large institution, else they will be working in finance field in an organisation.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 12th house and sits in 5th house in Taurus. Career in finance/wealth related field is very much on here as Jupiter is in the sign of Wealth and Assets. They can become teacher in finance field or may be financial analyst or adviser for others. But best career in both the situations is teaching/counseling/advising.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 3rd house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 3rd house lord, Saturn in 5th house (for Scorpio/Sagittarius Ascendants respectively) shows that person had troubles in completing his education. Education might be blocked for sometime or completely denied (in case of Saturn in Aries). It is always better to be realistic about love and relationship whenever Saturn is impacting 5th house and 7th house. Arrange Marriage is advisable in these situations with some realistic hopes. Creativity of person will prosper only after mid 30s. Till then it is time of hard work. Educational achievements will only come when person is ready to leave everything else behind.
Rahu - If Rahu is 3rd house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 5th house in Aries sign then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Aries in 5th house makes a person highly creative in his field. Most times these people can go in sports as Rahu is in Mars ruled sign. They are almost obsessed with creativity. Likewise, they love to have kids. They are very good with studies too.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 3rd house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 5th house in Capricorn 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 being creative and attaining higher education. Means they themselves won't be motivated to study any further after basic education. Likewise, they are not too much into sports, not even as a kid. Love relations would always end in painful breakups or cheating, so much so that later they won't even be inclined to any love relation. A benefic planet with Ketu or its aspect on Ketu/5th house or a running dasha of another planet can change this scenario completely.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
