Today, 9th house lord sitting in 3rd 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 9th house lord sitting in 3rd house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 9th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 3rd house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 9th house lord sitting in 3rd house?
This gives 2 prima-facie indications. 1st is that this person is very much information oriented. 9th house is Learning, Gurus etc and 3rd house is Teaching, Communication etc. So, this person is all about gaining information and then spreading it to others. 2nd thing is travelling. 3rd house is short distance and 9th house is long distance travelling. So, this person will always be on go. In today's day and age, it also shows someone working in Outsourcing Business or working in Call Centers. These people like to communicate about Philosophy and Religions etc. They like to communicate with people of different religions, countries and ethnicity. In most cases, they live a very information oriented life.
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 3rd house lord as 9th house lord is going in 3rd house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 9th house Lord in 3rd house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Sagittarius Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 9th house with Leo sign and sits in the 3rd house in the sign of Aquarius. It shows someone making his Career in Large Organizations or working for Social Welfare through Communication and Counselling. It also shows that someone's father is keep on travelling from one place to another and that's why he feels a restricted relation with Father. They may be very good with each other but not enough communications between them due to distance and travelling. These people seek authority in life through their higher studies, communication and self-courage.
Moon - So it is Scorpio Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 9th house with Cancer sign and sits in 3rd house in Capricorn. Here, Mother travels a lot and hence person feels lack of care and nourishment from mother. Mother is like a strict disciplinarian in this case. That's also the reason why person doesn't feel like having a connect with mother. Person will be emotionally attached with Religion and Higher Learning but till mid-30s, they won't have access to the real knowledge and Gurus. This position can make a person quite hardcore about religion and philosophy.
Mars - Mars can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Leo Ascendant - So if it is Leo Ascendant, Mars rules 9th & 4th house and sits in 3rd house in Libra sign. As Mars is not in a great dignity here, it shows that these people find it hard to have a balanced communication when it comes to religion, philosophy and higher education. They are always vehemently defending their beliefs. If further malefic impact is on 3rd house, it shows someone getting into fights for religion and philosophy. They have a direct way of communication. At the same time, Mars in 3rd house makes a person highly courageous.
Pisces Ascendant - Now if it is Pisces Ascendant, Mars rules 2nd & 9th house and sits in 3rd house in Taurus sign. Almost similar results can be seen here as Mars is again in Venus ruled signs. Additionally, here the higher education of person can be in field of Occult and Mysticism as Scorpio sign falls in 9th house. Courage, direct speech and nature to defend the belief will remain the same. As Mars also rules the 2nd house of wealth, it shows that person's wealth will come through his own efforts.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Mercury rules 9th & 12th houses and sits in 3rd house in Sagittarius. This is a position of a Writer, Teacher or Counselor. 9th house & Sagittarius both represent similar things and Mercury is all about communication by any medium. So, these people can become Teachers/Professors in matters of Philosophy and Higher Education etc. They can also work as religious preachers and counselors. They should also write about philosophy and religion, either through any book, blog or novel.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th and 9th house and sits in 3rd house in Pisces, where it is debilitated. A debilitated Mercury is always the one which super imaginative powers. So actually a debilitated Mercury makes best selling Authors. As Pisces is sign of Spirituality, they become great writers in field of Spirituality, either through Stories or through Poems and Songs. They can become good counselors in Spiritual field too. Writing should be kept as is.
Venus - Venus also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Venus rules 9th & 2nd house and sits in 3rd house in Scorpio sign. This shows that person is finding love in different ethnicity, specially for a Guy. These people love communicating about higher philosophy, occult and mysticism but as Venus is in the sign of Scorpio, it shows that person will go through some of the most troublesome relationships before they finally settle down in life. Their relations early in life are full of ups/downs and chaotic events.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 3rd house in Aries. As again Venus and Mars are exchanging energy, it shows someone who is headstrong about his religion and beliefs. They are very direct about their beliefs and views. Relations again suffer due to the stern nature of Aries, but it is not like Scorpio. These people also love communicating about religion, philosophy with people around them, but often such communications are harsh and direct which leads to disputes.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, Jupiter rules 9th & 12th house and sits in 3rd house in Gemini Sign. As easily as it can be interpreted, this is a natural teacher and preacher. Jupiter, 9th house, 3rd house, Gemini and Sagittarius, all belong to teaching and preaching. So, this person is natural teacher, preacher and counselor in matters of religion and philosophy. Now for a girl, Husband would be from a different ethnicity. This person will be regarded as a learned person and a Guru in his locality.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 3rd house in Virgo. Here, results are almost same. Only addition is that this person is also a very good counselor and teacher in spiritual field. As 9th house of religion is ruled by Spiritual sign of Pisces, it shows that person is well-versed in Spiritual and Religious both matters. They can be seen as Spiritual Gurus and Counselors in Society. Additionally, they are very analytical about different religions and Philosophies. It means they will do a relative study of different religions and then teach/counsel others.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 9th house lord, Saturn in 3rd house (for Gemini/Taurus Ascendants respectively) shows that person's religious views and beliefs are not developed till mid 30s. Early in life, they never get right Guru or right Education. They never want to communicate much but they like to write a lot. They have hard time figuring out their right belief system, which only happens in mid 30s. When they write, they can write heaviest of books or lengthiest of Articles. Person won't have good relations with younger siblings till mid 30s . 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 9th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 3rd house in Leo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Leo in 3rd house will transform Rahu as Sun as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Leo in 3rd house shows a super creative person. Leo is sign of Creativity and Rahu explodes it in the house of Communications. So, these people make good use of their creativity and make business out of it. They have an unusual relation with siblings. They are smart businessman. These people are highly communicative. They are master in marketing. They can sell almost anything and make a business out of nothing. As for beliefs and religions, they have a weird approach towards religion where they can ask who wrote Holy Books and if it is written by a person, how it can be termed as word of God?
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 9th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 3rd 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 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. It shows someone who has very spiritual way of communication. They don't like to talk much but when they communicate then it is always in a spiritual way. So, they can do good as Spiritual Counselors. Ketu is in Taurus shows that these people are not too much about hoarding wealth and possessions in life. They will be disinterested towards money aspect of life. .
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
