What if 10th lord Moon is in 3rd house for a Libra Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology:10th lord in 3rd house: You are here
It is important to know the Nakshatra and its Pada where Moon is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 3rd house as there are 3 Nakshatras that fall in the sign of Sagittarius and those are Purva Ashadha, Mula and Uttara Ashadha.
If Moon is placed in the Purva Ashadha in the 3rd house then you could possess skills (as 3rd house is our skills) such as Arts created from Ivory as the symbol of this Nakshatra is elephant tusk and ivory is obtained from the elephant tusk. Also, this Nakshatra is ruled by Venus and Venus represents creativity in Vedic Astrology and so the profession of arts and crafts is possible when Moon is placed in this Nakshatra.
Since this Nakshatra has to do with elephant teeth any malefic aspect on Moon (such as Saturn and Rahu aspecting it) then cause problems in the teeth of the native. Also, the native could be a dentist with this kind of Moon placement especially if 2nd house lord Mars is also placed along with Moon in the 3rd house and Saturn, Sun and Mercury are placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 2nd house and Rahu and Venus are placed in the first house.
The sign of Sagittarius has to do with nature and natural beauty with respect to the Purva Ashadha Nakshatra and for this reason the native's mind (as Moon represents mind) could also be into moving to isolated places like forests, zoo and water bodies (such as sea and rivers) as all these are represented by the sign of Sagittarius. They also enjoy the beaches a lot. They may also be involved in anything that is made from Ivory. Such native may also watch a lot of documentary films on wildlife animals and plants as the sign of Sagittarius represents wildlife animals and plants.
Priests are also seen from this placement if Venus is also seated along with Moon in the 3rd house in the sign of Sagittarius and in the Nakshatra of Purva Ashadha. Since this Nakshatra also symbolizes winnowing basket it has a lot to do with agriculture which is also the part of nature. If your Moon and Saturn are also placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Sagittarius you could be involved into the profession of irrigation or something related to plants and animals especially if Jupiter is also placed in its own sign of Sagittarius in the 3rd house.
If Mercury and Sun are also placed in the 3rd house along with Moon and Saturn is placed in the sign of Gemini then you could also be a writer on subjects like biology and zoology or subjects which are concerned with environmental science. You may also be involved in writing blogs over the internet. You could also be a teacher of biology with this placement of Moon. You could also be someone who is a trader of grains such as wheat, pulses, gram, rice, etc. This is more so possible if Rahu is in the 7th house and Mars is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Sagittarius.
If instead Moon is posited in the sign of Sagittarius but in the Mula Nakshatra in the 3rd house this kind of Moon will give a confused mind as this Nakshatra is ruled by Ketu and Ketu is a rejection of materialistic things of life. So it is hard for your mind to settle in a particular profession and finally, your mind will settle in something like occult science which Ketu represents especially if Ketu is placed in the 8th house of occult science.
Also, your mind may be into research and investigation with this placement of Moon in the 3rd house. Since the 3rd house is of communication and media you may speak a lot about hidden secrets of life such as occult science in the media or over the internet. You may also become an investigative journalist with this placement of Moon. But nothing can be assured unless all the planetary placements are known in the birth chart.
Since the 3rd house is 6th from the 10th house of the profession there may come a lot of obstacles in your profession especially if your Moon (lord of the profession) is afflicted otherwise not. If for example, Saturn is seated in the sign of Cancer in the 10th house it may give a lot of insecurity in the profession. You may not feel like working and your heart could be depressive when it comes to working. Or your mother may feel that way. Your mother may be concerned about and feel insecure about you as Moon also represents the mother in Vedic Astrology.
