What if Mars is in 3rd house for Taurus Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
This article is also valid for > 7th lord in 3rd house and 12th lord in 3rd house for Taurus Ascendant. Mars will fall in the sign of Cancer when placed in the 3rd for Taurus Ascendant. There are several possibilities with this placement and here are some of them.
1) This placement, in general, is not considered good as the willpower is lost when Mars gets debilitated in the house (3rd house) of showing courage and enthusiasm. Mars is a fiery planet and Cancer is a watery sign and so the fire of Muladhara chakra is lost when Mars is placed in the sign of Cancer. Mars rules the Mooladhara chakra and when Mars gets debilitated Muladhara chakra is affected badly and since Muladhara chakra is associated with sexual activities and excretion so these are also affected when Muladhara chakra goes bad.
If Mars is placed in a Nakshatra which falls under Ndhana or if the 7th house (as Mars rules the 7th house for a Taurus ascendant) falls under DJ then having kids in life may become sometimes difficult as 3rd house is also the house of mating and there could be inability in mating if Mars is not alright but otherwise there won’t be any such problem. Ndhana and DJ are short forms of some astrological tools which I don’t reveal in free articles and you can join my advanced astrology tutorials by clicking on the > contact me < link above if you want to learn all the real secrets of Vedic Astrology.
Such natives cannot be good in sports due to Mars being debilitated as in sports you need to put a lot of energy and efforts which comes from good Mars only. Such natives also cry very easily if you provoke them or threaten them as they don’t have the willpower to fight back. Since Mars is associated with Muladhara chakra and since Muladhara chakra is associated with discretion and wisdom so these natives may not have good discretion and often their studies are also affected especially if Moon, ruler of 3rd house, is placed in the 8th house.
Muladhara chakra is ruled by the Deity Shri Ganesha and Shri Ganesha is the giver of wisdom and discretion and so when Muladhara chakra is not alright then wisdom and discretion is not much good. But if Mars is not associated with Ndhana and DJ then there won’t be any major issue with this placement of Mars but willpower still may be low. There could also be nervousness in communication with this placement.
But if Moon is also placed in the 3rd house along with Mars then Mars won’t be considered as debilitated as then the 3rd lord would be placed along with Mars. Also, if Rahu is placed in the sign of Aries or the sign of Scorpio then also Mars cannot be considered as debilitated as Rahu is an amplifier and so it amplifies Mars to get it out of debilitated state when placed in any of the signs of Mars (Aries & Scorpio).
Multiple sexual relationships are also possible with this placement as for a Taurus ascendant Mars rules the 7th house of relationship and it is placed in the 3rd house of mating but this is not always so and will depend a lot on the placement of other planets in the birth chart and also other astrological tools (as I mentioned above) need to be analyzed for the final confirmation. Multiple relationships become possible because a planet loses its dignity when it gets debilitated. When there are no morals or dignity then there is no hesitation in making sexual relationships with different partners.
2) Businessmen are most commonly seen from this placement especially those who are in the marketing and advertising of clothes, food & beverage, furniture, home appliances, and vehicles as Cancer is a sign that represents all these things. Businessmen are seen from this placement because the 7th house is the house of business deals and the 3rd house is the house of communication and marketing & advertising and so it becomes communication or marketing of business deals as here the 7th lord is placed in the 3rd house.
3) For Taurus ascendant people their emotions are expressed through communication and when Mars is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house of communication then the emotions during communication get agitated and so the communication may go haywire if the 3rd lord Moon is not well placed in the chart or afflicted badly by malefics and if Mercury is also not well placed in the chart such as debilitated or combust.
But if Moon and Mercury are well placed then this same placement of Mars in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house could make the native a singer as in singing emotions are expressed through communication and voice. If Rahu is placed in the 1st house in the sign of Taurus and if the 1st lord Venus is placed in the 7th house along with Ketu in the sign of Scorpio then a singing career is quite possible even with a debilitated Moon. But Mercury and Sun must also be well placed such as in the 4th house or the 5th house.
4) If Mars is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house but if the 3rd lord Moon is placed in the 7th house in the sign of Scorpio then relationships could fail and there could also be multiple sexual relationships with different partners as here Moon is debilitated and debilitated planets often loses their dignity. But this is not always so and other astrological tools also need to be analyzed for that. When Moon is in Scorpio it means the person doesn’t have much control over his senses or mind as Moon represents the mind or emotions. This is because 3rd house is also the house of mating. But if the aspect of Jupiter is there on Moon then it may not be so. But if the aspect of Rahu is there on Moon then it is more so possible. With this placement, loss in property business is also likely if you are into property business as Mars is the natural significator of land and property and Cancer is also a sign of shelters such as homes and offices. Debilitated Mars is not good for property business and it may also get you in debt.
5) If Mars is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house but if the 3rd lord Moon is placed in the 4th house in the sign of Leo then indigestion, gastric or liver problems are likely with this placement as Leo is a sign that represents our liver. But this is only so if Mars is truly debilitated and it is more troublesome if Venus is also debilitated and placed in the 5th house in the sign of Virgo. Mars is considered debilitated at a certain degree only. But this placement is good to find a job in the marketing department of some company or retail shop as Leo is a sign of promotion and Moon is placed in the sign of Leo.
6) Heart troubles are likely if Saturn is placed in the sign of Aries in the 12th house and then if Mars is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house and if Moon is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 5th house or otherwise also. The sign of Cancer also represents our heart and we should look at the chart after making Aries as ascendant for health. When Moon is placed in the sign of Virgo the heart works a lot and there could be a lot of thoughts in the mind. With this placement, some kind of injury or surgery (such as head injury or heart surgery) is also likely as here Saturn is also debilitated along with Mars.
7) If Mars is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house but if the 3rd lord Moon is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 5th house then such natives may workout in the gym especially if Saturn is also placed in the 5th house in the sign of Virgo. This is because the 5th house is the house of recreational activities and exercises are also part of recreational activities. Also, Virgo is a sign of health care and so people who are into the marketing or promotion of health care and fitness products such as health supplements, etc can also be seen from this placement. People providing food service may also have this placement.
