Can 10th lord Mercury in 3rd house make you a sportsman? (Virgo Ascendant -Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology:10th lord in 3rd house: You are here
Now since Mercury is placed in the sign of Scorpio the skills of hands could be something where there are sudden ups and downs and since Mercury is placed in the 3rd house, which is its own house, it will do things like writing and using skills of hands as 3rd house is the house of communication and using skills of hands and shoulders.
Just think of sports like basketball, badminton, cricket, tennis, etc where skills of hands are required a lot and there are also sudden ups and downs on hands while playing such sports and there are also risks and emergencies in these sports which the sign of Scorpio represents. Sports are all emergency as you need to do everything fast in order to win. So it is quite clear that you could be a sportsman with the placement of Mercury in the 3rd house in the sign of Scorpio but in that case, your Saturn must also be placed in the sign of Gemini in the 10th house. Since Saturn is the planet of action it does the action of communicating or using the skills of hands when placed in the sign of Gemini as the sign of Gemini represents the skills of hands and communication.
Also,3rd house is 6th from the 10th house which means the 3rd house is the house of obstacles, competition, and difficulties of the 10th house of profession which means your profession will involve obstacles, difficulties, and competition (anything 6th is obstacles). In sports, you do face a lot of obstacles and competition and so the career of sports is likely but this is not confirmed unless the position of all the planets in the birth chart is known. But if Mars (lord of 3rd house and lord of Scorpio) is placed in the 5th house (exalted Mars) in the sign of Capricorn, especially in the Nakshatra of Dhanistha, then the sports career is confirmed as the Nakshatra of Dhanistha is well known for sports competitions and 5th house also represents sports and other leisure activities.
But there are also sports like race cars and horse riding which are seen from the Ashwini Nakshatra and this Nakshatra with Aries sign will fall on the 8th house for a Virgo Ascendant. So if Mars is located in this Nakshatra (with Mercury still in 3rd house) in the 8th house then you could be involved in sports like car race and horse riding.
When you use a gun or some other weapon (like a sword) this is using your skills of hands which represents > Mercury in the sign of Scorpio > as the sign of Scorpio is also a sign of war and in war and fights there is the use of weapons which are also risks and emergencies. So, the profession or career of a soldier (military) or police is also possible with this placement of Mercury in the 3rd house for a Virgo Ascendant.
But this is more so possible if Saturn and Mars are also placed along with Mercury in the 3rd house especially in the Nakshatra of Anuradha which is all about giving a helping hand to the people in trouble in emergencies. Also, there are emergencies such as floods, earthquakes, public violence, etc where military and police are required and these are also the part of the world of Scorpio. Saturn in the sign of Scorpio in the 3rd house shows using sharp tools made of iron or steel such as weapons or some other tools (like ropes) as 3rd house is the house of skills of hands and Saturn represents iron and steel and tools made from iron and steel.
If your Mercury is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 3rd house but if Mars (the lord of 3rd house or Scorpio) is placed in the 10th house in the sign of Gemini but in the Nakshatra of Ardra then you could be involved into weather forecasting as the Nakshatra of Ardra has lot to do with natural calamities like storms(and weather in general ) and it is also related to information technology or the world of internet. You may also be in media doing the weather forecasting and this is also communication which Mercury represents. But Saturn must also be placed in the sign of Gemini in the 10th house.
If Mercury and Saturn are placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Scorpio and if Mars is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Aries and the Nakshatra of Ashwini and Pada 1 you could become a surgeon doctor or a medicine man with this placement. When you dig deep it is again Scorpio and for surgeries, Saturn has to be in Scorpio as you are digging deep when you are doing the surgery. When you dig the mother earth that is where also Saturn has to be in Scorpio. 8th house is also the house of surgeries as this house is ruled by the sign of Scorpio in the natural zodiac. Also, the Ashwini Nakshatra I mentioned above is mostly about health and healing.
However, if Mercury and Saturn are placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Scorpio and if Mars is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Aries but in the Nakshatra of Bharani then either you could be a gynecologist or someone who cook as Bharani Nakshatra is Bharan Poshan and cooking is part of the Bharan Poshan as this Nakshatra is ruled by Venus.
When you cook you transform food from one state to another and transformation is nothing but the representation of Scorpio. Read more about > Scorpio transformation. So cooking is also possible when Saturn and Mercury are placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 3rd house especially if Mars is placed in the 8th house of transformation in the Nakshatra of Bharani. So like this, you can predict yourself according to the placement of Mars, Saturn, Mercury and other planets in the birth chart. Knowing about the Nakshatras is most important to predict accurately.
But Saturn and Mercury in the sign of Scorpio are also about engineering as Scorpio is engineering and so if your Mars is placed in the 8th house you could also become an engineer and even an engineer in the information technology world or may also be into repairing of electronic items. Mercury is also our intellect other than skills of hands and communication.
