Can 10th lord Mercury in 3rd house make you a teacher or professor? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology:10th lord in 3rd house: You are here
With this kind of placement, you could be in a profession (as 10th house is profession) where there is a lot of arguments with the public or the customers as the sign of Aquarius represents the masses or the public. I said arguments because the 3rd house is 6th from the 10th house and anything 6th is obstacles and the obstacle is arguments especially if Mercury is involved because Mercury represents communication and we argue only during communication.
You see > a teacher or a professor also does a lot of arguments with their students on different topics in different subjects and so this could also mean the profession of a teacher or a professor especially if Saturn is placed in the 2nd house and Jupiter is placed in the sign of Leo in the 9th house. The sign of Aquarius is always opposite to the sign of Leo. Here we can consider the teacher or professor as the Leo (9th house) and the students (teacher's customers) as the Aquarius (3rd house). The students are a collectivity and collectivity is represented by the sign of Aquarius. Teacher or a Guru is knowledge which is Sun.
Since Mercury also represents writing you could also be a great writer with this placement as 3rd house is the house of communication and writing. You could be someone who writes about health, fitness, diseases, debt, etc. or even technology as the sign of Aquarius also represents all the latest technology such as mobile phones, cloud computing, internet, programming, computers, etc. You can write blogs and make money from it if you have such a placement.
You could also be a public speaker (like a politician or a Guru or Saint) with this placement of 10th lord in the 3rd house especially if your Ascendant lord Jupiter is also placed along with Mercury in the 3rd house and your 11th house lord Venus is placed in the 1st house and 3rd house lord Saturn must be placed in the sign of Libra in the 11th house.
This placement of Mercury in the 3rd house in the sign of Aquarius could also get you into aerospace engineering or computer network engineering or even telecom network architecture especially if Saturn is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 12th house and the 12th house lord Mars is placed in the 3rd house along with Mercury and Jupiter. This is because Mercury also represents our hands and in the sign of Aquarius Mercury does the job of engineering with hands especially if Saturn (the lord of Aquarius) is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 12th house. Any type of engineering where networking is involved you could be into that profession. But all that I mentioned above in this paragraph is possible if your Mercury and other planets in the 3rd house are placed in the Nakshatra of Satabhisha as this Nakshatra has a lot to do with network engineering as this Nakshatra is ruled by Rahu which represents all the modern technology.
You could also be some musical instrument player especially if your Mercury is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 3rd house but in the Nakshatra of Dhanistha as this Nakshatra is also about musical instruments as the symbol of this Nakshatra is "Musical Drum". But since Mars rules this Nakshatra > this Nakshatra is also about general engineering such as automobile engineering, mining engineering, civil engineering etc as Mars (Scorpio side) is an engineer and Saturn is a mechanic.
If you are into business you may also get into debt with this placement of 10th house lord in the 3rd house as 3rd house is 6th from the 10th house and anything 6th is debt. This is more so possible if your 6th house lord Venus is placed in the 10th house in the sign of Virgo. You may get into debt related to your business such as buying machinery for your business. When 6th lord is placed in the 10th house then it shows the obstacles (6th house represents debt and obstacles of you) in your life will come from the 10th house of your profession and since 10th house lord is placed in the 3rd house the debt could be about your profession related to engineering or public debt as the sign of Aquarius represents the public.
Since Venus is considered debilitated in the sign of Virgo you could also face trouble with the public or your professional network circle when 6th lord is placed in the 10th house and 10th house lord is placed in the 3rd house. If you are a politician you may lose in the election as your 11th house lord Venus is also placed in the 10th house (when 6th lord is in 10th house) and 10th house is the loss of the 11th house of public support as the 10th house is 12th from the 11th house and anything 12th is loss or give up.
If Mercury is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 3rd house and if the lord of 3rd house > Saturn > is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 7th house then could be someone handling customer queries through some website (online).
