What if 10th lord Saturn is in 3rd house for a Taurus Rising? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology:10th lord in 3rd house: You are here
When 10th house (of profession) lord Saturn is placed in the sign of Cancer then your profession could involve a lot of mind work as the sign of Cancer represents our soul or mind or heart. Saturn is a planet of action and it does the action of using the mind in the sign of Cancer. But it can also give insecurity in your heart related to something unless Moon (the ruler of Cancer) is also seated along with the Saturn.
Also, the profession lord Saturn is placed 6th place (as 3rd house is 6th from the 10th house) and so the work involved in your profession could be something that is detail oriented work and which will also need the use of mind as the sign of Cancer falls on the 3rd house. This is because anything 6th is obstacles, problems, difficulties, and detail oriented. Here you can face the difficulty in mind or your heart as Moon is ruling the 3rd house.
Possibility 1: If Saturn is in 3rd house and Moon (lord of 3rd house) and Venus (ascendant lord) are placed in the sign of Leo (in Purva Phalguni Nakshatra) in the 4th house and if Sun (the lord of Leo) is placed along with Mercury in the 5th house then this is a great placement to have to become very creative with the mind. Such placement can make you a good artist whether it is in the physical form or if you are using online tools like photoshop for online designing. You could also be a video game developer or a Programmer in general with this placement.
Possibility 2: If Saturn is in 3rd house and Moon (lord of 3rd house) is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 5th house along with Mercury (lord of Virgo) and Venus (Ascendant lord) then also it will make you very creative and so good for arts and crafts related professions. This is because the 5th house is the house of creativity and fun. All leisure activities such as playing games, arts, crafts, etc are represented by the 5th house. But you could also be good at performing on stage, writing movie scripts, video editing, directing movies, mimicry, writing poems, stories and novels as 5th house is also the house of the world of Cinema as it is also a part of the fun and entertainment world which the 5th house represents.
Important note: As long as Moon is protected by the lord of the house where it is posited the mind of the native will be balanced and so the native will be extremely creative at doing the mind related work. If Moon is alone in a house (lord of the house is not seated there) then Saturn in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house may not make you creative and then mostly people do business as a Taurus Ascendant. The moon will be protected in the 2 possibilities I mentioned above and that is the reason those placements are good. Also, the position of the ascendant lord is also important as the ascendant tells the purpose of life. If Moon and ascendant lord are not apart more than 1 house the placement is good but the placement is excellent if Moon and Ascendant lord, Venus, are posited in a single house especially if the Saturn is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house.
Possibility 3: If Saturn is placed in the 3rd house and if Moon (lord of 3rd house) is placed in the 6th house along with Venus (ascendant and 6th house lord) then again this is a great placement to have especially if Mercury is also seated in its own sign in the 5th house. You could be an architect (or home remodeling and home decor) with this placement especially if your Moon and Venus are located in the Chitra Nakshatra in the sign of Libra in the 6th house.
If instead Venus and Moon are located in the Swati Nakshatra then you will be extremely good at making business deals happen. You can make use of this astrology software to know which Nakshatra and it's Pada your planets are located if you don't know about this. But you could also be in software engineering or web programming with this placement of Moon and Venus as Swati Nakshatra is all about information technology including e-commerce. But you could also be in the business of real estate as 6th house is 4th from the 3rd house and anything 4th is related to home, vehicles and conveniences of life.
Possibility 4: If Saturn is placed in the 3rd house and if Moon (lord of 3rd house) is placed in the 7th house in the sign of Scorpio then Moon gets debilitated here so there will be a lot of turbulence, fear, and anxiety in the mind but you could be in a profession where mind is busy in knowing something that is unknown such as investigation for a crime or something else like computer forensics. In other words, the mind could be into research and investigation especially if Rahu and Mars (the lord of Scorpio and 7th house) are located in the sign of Sagittarius in the 8th house as 8th house is the house of research and investigation. There are many professions related to the investigation and you could be in one of them. Also, you could be involved in occult science.
Possibility 5: If Saturn is placed in the 3rd house and if Moon (lord of 3rd house) is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Sagittarius then the mind could be in resolving disputes by investigating into the legal matters. There are many professions related to legal matters and you could be involved in one of them. You could even be a lawyer especially if Venus (ascendant lord) and Mercury are placed in the 6th house in the sign of Libra as Libra is a sign to resolve disputes and Virgo is a sign of disputes.
Possibility 6: If Saturn is placed in the 3rd house and if Moon (lord of 3rd house) is placed in the 9th house in the sign of Capricorn then this kind of mind is always thinking to dominate others or put their orders on others. So the person could be on the post of a Manager or someone who controls a group of people. But Capricorn is also a sign of recruitment so the native could also be a recruitment manager especially if the ascendant lord Venus is also placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 9th house along with Moon.
Possibility 7: If Saturn is placed in the 3rd house and if Moon (lord of 3rd house) is placed in the 10th house in the sign of Aquarius then here the mind is always into socializing or mingling with the people. If the ascendant lord Venus is also placed along with Moon in the sign of Aquarius then this placement could make you a social activist but more so a musician especially if Moon and Venus are placed in the Dhanistha Nakshatra as this Nakshatra is somewhat related to music. But you could also be into healing or information technology if Moon and Venus are placed in the Shatabisha Nakshatra instead of Dhanistha and if Mercury is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 5th house.
Possibility 8: If Saturn is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Cancer and if Moon (lord of 3rd house) is placed in the 11th house in the sign of Pisces then here the mind is more into spiritual healing either through alternative medicines or through music and dance. It again depends where the Jupiter is placed in the chart.
Possibility 9: If Saturn is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Cancer and if Moon (lord of 3rd house) is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Aries then this is a great placement to have to enter into cooking or sports or race car driving or climbing the mountains and travel.
Possibility 10: If Saturn is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Cancer and if Moon (lord of 3rd house) is placed in the 1st house along with Venus then it is the time for you to dive into the financial world or into painting, designing, arts, etc. and also into food business.
Possibility 11: If Saturn is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Cancer and if Moon (lord of 3rd house) is placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Gemini along with Mercury and Venus then this is a good placement to be a writer and a blogger and to be someone who is involved in marketing and advertising in the mass media such as the internet. E-commerce is also possible with this placement of Moon.
