Today, 6th house lord sitting in 3rd house.
So first of all, let's see what 3rd house and 6th 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.
6th house is 1st of Dushthana Houses (houses # 6, 8 and 12) and 2nd of Upachaya Houses (houses # 3, 6, 10 & 11). 6th house represents things like diseases, debts, obstacles, enemies, disputes, competitions, litigations, under privileged people, pets, daily routine life, colleagues at work place etc.
One thing to remember here is that 3rd house is 1st 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 6th house lord sitting in 3rd house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 6th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 3rd house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 6th house lord sitting in 3rd house?

So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 6th house Lord in 3rd house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Pisces Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 6th house with Leo sign and sits in the 3rd house in the sign of Taurus. It shows that native will get his self confidence and pride when he deals and resolves the disputes with his communications and will power. He might be working in a Govt department where his work relates to either communications or travelling around. He also gains confidence when he travels around for his routine work and communicates with people of different ethnicity and resolves their disputes. But as Sun is in a non-friendly sign, person may not be completely satisfied with his daily work routine or may feel that it is not giving enough returns to him in terms of wealth.
Moon - So it is Aquarius Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 6th house with Cancer sign and sits in 3rd house in Aries. These people can be seen as healers, who nurture under privileged people. Their mind is emotionally inclined towards service and at the same time, this is a very aggressive and active mind. They take initiatives and bring innovative ideas regarding serving people.

Mars - Mars can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Scorpio Ascendant - So if it is Scorpio Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 3rd house in Capricorn sign, where it is exalted. This shows a very strong willed person. This person will actually kill the dispute before it takes any real shape through his initiative actions. This can surely show someone who is a Lawyer or works with Govt and resolves the disputes by his communications. This can also some of the finest sportsperson who can go to any length to defect their competitor, but good thing with exalted Mars is that they don't take illegal means to reach their goals. A highly strong-willed person.
Gemini Ascendant - Now if it is Gemini Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 3rd house in Leo sign. Almost same things can be seen here as Mars is in the sign of best friend Sun. As Sun is King and Mars is Soldier, in Leo sign, Mars is ready to take any order from King. So, it is as good as Mars in Capricorn where Mars is ready to serve the Govt. So, again a very high spirit and strong willed person, who can beat enemies or conflicts any how.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Mercury rules 6th & 9th houses and sits in 3rd house in Pisces, where it is debilitated. This shows a person who win over his enemies and disputes with his communications, mainly with his writings. These people normally become authors or activists, like RTI activists, who help others through their writings. They can also be writing blogs and like things, by which they motivate people to live a better life. They are very imaginative people and they bring that imagination into writing to resolve conflicts.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th & 3rd house and sits in 3rd house in Gemini. A very skillful person who can serve people through various ways. They have so many skills, interests and hobbies that they can be the one ideal for multitasking. They keep information of almost anything under sky and serve people with that information. They can be chatterboxes. They are outgoing, fun loving and fun to be with as Mercury is fully active in its own sign and house. They are the ones who will take hobbies and interests as their routine work.
Venus - Venus also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 3rd house in Aquarius sign. This person earns his wealth by serving in large organization. For any such work, he has to go far away from home/home land. This person will be happy working in job setup and serving others. They have a very pleasant way of talking, and they win people with their communications.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 3rd house in Cancer. This person wants to serve people through communications and they have a communicating style that is very emotional. These can be seen as people who serve under-privileged people through NGOs and like organizations. They are all about emotionally serving people. Their love is in service and emotions.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 3rd house in Virgo Sign.This shows a health counselor or someone who teaches people about healing activities. This is because Virgo is Healing Services, Jupiter is Knowledge & Guidance and 3rd house is communication. So, these people like to spread awareness regarding Health Issues and Healing Services. They take care of health of people and animals too. This position can make someone a Veterinarian too. But overall, a very knowledgeable person regarding health care.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 6th house and sits in 3rd house in Sagittarius. And here comes the Preacher. These are the Priests and like people who resolve the disputes of people through their knowledge, wisdom and counselling. They have the higher wisdom of religion and philosophy through which they can motivate anyone in down time. Purely learned people, who have wisdom to deal with all the obstacles of life.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 6th house lord, Saturn in 3rd house (for Leo/Virgo Ascendants respectively) surely shows a person who is a Lawyer, more so for Leo Ascendants as Saturn will be exalted in Libra for them. As it rules the house of disputes and exalted in 3rd house of communication, it surely makes a Lawyer. Person can be a Judge too. Relations with younger siblings will be a distant one. Person won't have good relations with younger siblings till mid 30s . Likewise, skills and hobbies remain hidden till person attains 30s. After that he will start developing his skills and 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.
Rahu - If Rahu is 6th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 3rd house in Scorpio then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Scorpio in 3rd house will transform Rahu as Mars as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. So, it will become much like Mars in 3rd house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Scorpio in 3rd house shows a person who is highly obsessed about Occult, Mysticism and Tantra/Magic etc. This person will search solutions of every obstacle of life in these things. Their hobbies and interests are all into occult world. They face lots of turmoil in their relations with younger siblings. They should be always careful about travelling as chances of any sudden event or accident will always be there.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 6th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 3rd house in Leo 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. Ketu in Leo in 3rd house shows that this person is away from all creative endeavors of life. He is happy with the routine life and doesn't want to follow the creative pursuits.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
