Today, 3rd house lord sitting in 9th house.
So first of all, let's see what 3rd house and 9th 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.
9th house represents Higher Education, Philosophy, Religion, Law, Faith, Fortune, Gurus, Teachings of Father (as father is 1st Guru we get) etc.
Now, what does it mean to have 3rd house lord sitting in 9th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 3rd house of your horoscope is sitting in the 9th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 3rd house lord sitting in 9th house?
Its generic interpretation is that this person's interests, hobbies and communications are going into field of Higher Education, Religion, Philosophy etc. So, this person is very much interested in getting Higher Education, in travelling to far distant places and meeting with people of different ethnicity. This position of planets exchanges energies between collection of information (3rd house) and publication of information (9th house). So, a great possibility to see a highly educated and author kind of person here. One thing is sure that person will be working within collecting information and publishing information.
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 9th house lord as 3rd house lord is going in 9th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 3rd house Lord in 9th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Gemini Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 3rd house with Leo sign and sits in the 9th house in the sign of Aquarius. 1st indication is that native's father or he himself or both might be in any work which might require long distance travels. It shows that someone is working with some large religious group of people like Iskcon and go to different places for teaching higher wisdom. They are very much inclined towards research of higher religious and philosophical stuff and using it for common good of all. Else, in normal way, they may be working in some big organisation at some distant places.
Moon - So it is Taurus Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 3rd house with Cancer sign and sits in 9th house in Capricorn. Whenever Moon comes into contact with Saturn or Saturn ruled signs, it is not too good for native emotional. As Moon is the most planet, it gets impacted at the earliest. This time native's mother may be travelling around at different places. Person's mind is very much into higher learning and reaching a place of authority but this result comes only in 30s. Person is emotionally attached with his higher learning. Person finds it hard to express his emotional state of mind.
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 9th house in Libra sign. As Mars is not in a very good dignity here, this person will have continuous quarrels, serious disagreements with teachers. This person will always find those Gurus which will counter his opinions, no matter how much he will try to keep peace (Libra-Balance) with them. On the other hand, as Libra is sign of Relationship and 9th house is also a house of Law, we can see a Relationship Attorney/Counselor here with a view to make peace between warring parties rather than breaking the relation.
Virgo Ascendant - Now if it is Virgo Ascendant, Mars rules 3rd & 8th house and sits in 9th house in Taurus sign. Again, Mars is in Venus ruled sign where it is not in good dignity. So, all the results given above are also possible here, with an addition that person's efforts are more in making wealth through his higher knowledge and education as Taurus is sign of Wealth. All other results will be quite similar.
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 9th house in Sagittarius. Now, this person is all about higher learning, reading scriptures, collecting info from whatever sources. he will first collect information and then publish information. So, we can see an author or a blogger from this position. This person also travels a lot. All his travels are frequent, i.e. he doesn't stay at one place for a long time. Extreme curiosity about Religion, Philosophy and people of different cultures.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, then Mercury rules 3rd & 12th house and sits in 9th house in Pisces, where it is debilitation. As I said before I am never bothered to see Mercury as debilitated. I can show horoscopes of some best selling authors from around the world who have debilitated Mercury. These people have highly imaginative communications. They analyse all religious stuff and philosophies in detail and then use their own imagination to write about these things. They write in a very spiritual way. Their curiosity is same for all the philosophical stuff. They can be greatest of writers on higher knowledge and spirituality.
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 9th house in Scorpio sign. Wherever Venus is, that's where your love is. These people love to travel to far distant places and meeting people of different cultures. Besides having love towards higher studies of religions and philosophies, these people love to study about occult matters. Their love life go through ups & downs and sudden events. It also shows love partner may be from a different culture.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Venus rules 3rd & 10th house and sits in 9th house in Aries. This again shows all the results we talked about in earlier para. Additionally it shows that love partner of native will be determined to keep his own separate identity, which may lead to disputes. It also shows that person has a very direct speech.
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 9th house in Gemini Sign. This is position for someone to become a teacher or professor at a far distant places. Although Jupiter is never too happy in Mercury ruled signs but here in Gemini, Jupiter becomes curious to know more and more about higher studies. And it so happens that when you have too much info about something, then you are bound to share with others. You become a Guru to others because you can't keep all the info inside you anymore. So in this position, person accumulates a lot of knowledge and shares with others.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 12th house and sits in 9th house in Virgo. Another position where Jupiter is in Mercury ruled sign and another position where person can go into academic field of Higher Learning. Virgo gives them capacity to be analytical in their approach towards higher studies of philosophies and religion. These people do comparative studies on their subject and make their own opinion based on research done. This position is even better for a Professor's job as this native will be open to various opinions, discussions and debates.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 3rd house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 3rd house lord, Saturn in 9th house (for Scorpio/Sagittarius Ascendants respectively) shows that person doesn't get good teachers in early part of life. His higher education is either delayed or blocked for various reasons. These people have stressful relations with their teacher because each side is trying to dominate other. But this position also keeps them focused on getting higher education and with dedication and efforts for longer time, they finally get teachers who guide them properly. Later on, they become an authority in their subject.
Rahu - If Rahu is 3rd house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 9th house in Leo sign then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Leo in 9th house makes a person obsessive about religion and philosophy and studies related to them. This person wants to gain all the fame possible in his area of interest but at the same time, Rahu is in Sun's sign which it eclipses, so these people want to get all the fame but Rahu brings many imagined fears due to which they don't get courage to take steps for that fame. This tug of war continues till late 30s and then as Rahu removes its eclipse in 40s, person realizes his strengths and takes step on it.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 3rd house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 9th house in Taurus 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 his Gurus and Higher Learning, means this person will always find Gurus who are in disagreement with native. There is never a connect between the two. Native thinks that real knowledge of religion and philosophy is something else then what is taught to him by his Gurus. He always feels that his teachers are below par.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
