What if Ketu is in 3rd house for Taurus Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
This article is also valid for > Ketu in Cancer in the 3rd house.
Ketu will fall in the sign of Cancer when placed in the 3rd house for a Taurus ascendant. There are several possibilities with this placement and here are some of them.
1) The sign of Cancer is a sign of expressing our emotions or feelings and the emotions could get drained when a malefic planet like Ketu is placed in the sign of Cancer. If Rahu is an amplifier then Ketu is just opposite to Rahu and so Ketu can suppress the emotions. The native could get hard by nature when his/her emotions are suppressed as the sign of Cancer determines our nature. This could make their communication depressive and they also don’t like to speak much as Ketu is a planet of idleness (don’t want to do anything). Ketu is the natural significator of the 12th house (of idleness) and the 8th house.
They could feel nervous when you ask them to sell or market & advertise. Anxiety could catch them. That is the reason, people, with this placement, are often fired from their marketing jobs as they cannot handle marketing properly due to anxiety and fear. If Ketu in transit is also aspecting or conjuncting the natal Ketu in the 3rd house then the risk of losing the job is more so possible as Ketu’s aspect on Ketu will make the Ketu more suppressive.
Kids often run away from music classes if they have this placement as the thought of singing could give them anxiety and fear due to Ketu being in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house. The sign of Cancer falling on the 3rd house (of communication) is really good when you want to express yourself through singing but when a planet like Ketu falls in the 3rd house then it becomes just opposite and then you run away from singing. But this is more so possible if Mercury is also afflicted in some way in the chart. If Moon is also placed along with Ketu in the sign of Cancer then it may not be so.
2) People with this placement of > Ketu in the 3rd house in the sign of Cancer, are often very serious kind of people and they don’t enjoy gossiping with friends and relatives as 3rd house is also the house of gossiping and chit-chat. But they could communicate a lot when it comes to religion, spirituality, and philosophy as Ketu is a planet of religion, spirituality, and philosophy.
When Ketu is placed in the sign of Cancer then the heart is more towards the spiritual things of life as the sign of Cancer represents our heart and so such people often speak about religion, spirituality, occult, paranormal, etc in media. People running Youtube channels related to astrology, numerology, and other occult sciences may have this placement. People speaking on television channels about religion, spirituality, occult, and paranormal may also have this placement.
3) Teachers and professors of philosophy and higher studies related to subjects such as engineering (PCM – physics, chemistry, and maths) may also have this placement. This is because Rahu is placed in the sign of Capricorn which is a sign of automation (machinery and tools) and engineering is all about making of machinery and tools or automation. In IT (information technology) also when you make automated programs such as software, apps, and websites then that also is nothing but automation represented by the sign of Capricorn. If the 3rd lord Moon is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 9th house then engineering or automation is more so possible.
When you work with these machines and tools too much then your emotions get drained due to overactivity and that is what Ketu does in the sign of Cancer when you activate your Rahu too much in the 9th house. If the 3rd lord Moon is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 5th house then this could also give heart troubles as Moon represents our heart and Virgo is a sign of troubles and difficulties. Heart troubles come in life when there are over-activity and over-planning. Ketu in the sign of Cancer increases the chances of heart troubles especially when Moon is placed in the sign of Virgo.
Also, Capricorn is a sign of domination and ruling over others and when Rahu is placed in the sign of Capricorn then you may dominate and try to rule over others and if this domination is too much and morally not right, then nature punishes you with a heart attack and this is what Ketu does in the sign of Cancer. Since Moon also represents the mother in Vedic Astrology so the mother could also face heart troubles (or back pain).
4) If Ketu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house but if the 3rd lord Moon is placed in the sign of Scorpio (debilitated Moon) in the 7th house then such natives may fall prey to sexual relationships with multiple partners as Ketu is a planet of change and so it brings a change of the partner for mating as 3rd house is the house of mating. Also, debilitated planets often lose their dignity as debilitated planets make us weak and exalted planets make us stronger.
If, with this same placement, Ketu falls under NDH then having kids in life becomes also difficult as Ketu represents the kids. NDH is a secret astrological tool that I don’t reveal in free articles and you can join my advanced astrology tutorials by clicking on the > contact me < link above for that. The ability to do mating is lost when Ketu falls under NDH and so having kids in life becomes difficult. Also, when Ketu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house of mating then Ketu doesn’t let you get satisfied with one partner especially if Moon is debilitated in the chart. Moon or mind gets turbulent in the sign of Scorpio and then Ketu brings a change of partner.
5) If Ketu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house but if the 3rd lord Moon is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 8th house then the risk of an accident is there as the 8th house is a very turbulent house and Moon represents the shelter in travel (such as a vehicle) as Moon is a planet that represents the shelters and 3rd house is also the house of travel and Moon rules the 3rd house for a Taurus ascendant. Also, Sagittarius is a sign of long-distance journeys. In the sign of Cancer, Ketu can make the emotions very turbulent especially when Moon is placed in the 8th house of turbulence. When emotions get turbulent then attention is disturbed as Moon is a planet of attention and stability. Moon in its own sign of Cancer often gives stability and good attention.
6) If Ketu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house but if the 3rd lord Moon is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 10th house then this position could bring a lot of change in your professional statuses such as promotion, demotion, change of place of job, and even change of job. This is what Ketu does as Ketu is a planet of change. Often, with this placement, people are either marketing managers or recruiters or even a board member in some company. They may also be into employee management.
7) If Ketu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house but if the 3rd lord Moon is placed in the sign of Aries in the 12th house then with this placement it could bring a lot of up & down in a foreign country as 12th house is the house of foreign countries and 3rd house is the house of travel and Ketu is a planet of change or up & down. Even air force pilots may have this placement as they travel a lot to foreign places or from one city to another in the same country. Taurus ascendant natives are quite often seen as pilots due to the sign of Aries falling on their 12th house of ether (akash). Aries is a sign of motion and motion is nothing but travel.
8) If Ketu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 3rd house but if the 3rd lord Moon is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 1st house then if the native is working in the field of IT (information technology) with this placement then it could bring a lot of turbulence in the job (up & down in the job) due to the placement of Ketu in the 3rd house in the sign of Moon. If the ascendant lord Venus is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Sagittarius then again it could bring some kind of accident or injury as the 8th house is a very turbulent house. If the 3rd lord is placed in the 1st house then the native could travel a lot.
