Mercury in Cancer in 3rd house: Guitar player birth chart (Vedic Astrology)
Click here (will open in a new window) to see the birth chart of Thibault Jean Cauvin who is a French musician and a guitarist and a musical prodigy. As a guitarist, he had performed in 120 countries and completed more than 1000 stage performances even before the age of 20. Also, won many international prizes and you can know about him in more detail on his official website > https://www.thibaultcauvin.com/biography.
As you can see, he is a Taurus ascendant with Rahu placed in the 1st house in the sign of Taurus in Rohini Nakshatra. Rahu is an obsession and whichever sign Rahu is placed that becomes the purpose or destiny of life. The sign of Taurus and Rohini Nakshatra are well known for artistic and creative work and also well known for music and dance. So, for a musician, Rahu in the sign of Taurus in the 1st house makes perfect sense.
Venus rules the sign of Taurus and Venus represents our heart (called dil in Hindi language). It is our heart only through which we feel the enjoyment of music or singing. When Rahu is placed in the sign of Venus (Taurus) it simply means obsession for enjoyment through the heart and music is one of the sources of the enjoyment of the heart.
Also, the ascendant lord Venus is placed in the sign of Cancer which is an emotional sign which shows enjoyment through emotions (emotional enjoyment). When we listen to music or songs we feel the pleasure of it in our hearts and the Moon also represents our heart (along with Venus). We can also say we feel pleasure in our emotions.
Venus in Cancer is an extremely powerful placement for emotional enjoyment (as Venus is a planet of enjoyment) and since Venus is placed in the 3rd house of communication so it becomes an emotional enjoyment through communication.
Playing guitar and listening to the song is also emotional enjoyment through communication. When the guitar is played, vibrations are generated in the air and 3rd house is also an air house as 3rd house is ruled by the sign of Gemini in the default zodiac and Gemini is also an air sign. Communication or vibrations are not possible without the air.
For a Taurus ascendant, Mercury rules the 2nd house and the 5th house and here it is placed in the 3rd house of skills of hands and communication. Mercury is also a planet of the skills of hands and Guitar is also played using the skills of hands. So, this placement of Mercury in the 3rd house makes perfect sense for a guitarist.
Also, communication, in the form of emotional sound, is generated when Guitar is played and the 3rd house and Mercury both represent the > sound and communication < and since Mercury is placed in the sign of Cancer it becomes an emotional sound as Cancer is a sign of emotions.
Now, the 3rd lord Moon is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 10th house and this gives an indication of nurturing the audience through that emotional sound (which is nothing but playing guitar) as the Moon is a planet of nurturing.
Also, the sound of the guitar is passed through the network of the sound system to the audience and the sign of Aquarius represents that network and Moon is placed in the sign of Aquarius.
So, the Moon in the sign of Aquarius also makes perfect sense for a guitar player as Moon in Aquarius is all about nurturing the masses or the public or the audience as the sign of Aquarius represents the masses or the public or the audience and Moon is a planet nurturing or showing your emotions and feelings. The emotional musical sound of the Guitar reaches the public (through sound networks) when Moon is placed in the sign of Aquarius.
But Mars and Saturn are the major planets of action and both are placed in the sign of Libra in the 6th house of work. Libra is a major sign of creativity and arts and Libra also represents the Swadisthana chakra in the human subtle system and Swadisthana chakra is ruled by Brahma and Saraswati.
Brahma is the Goddess who is known for creation (or creativity) and Saraswati is the Goddess known for music and dance and wisdom. Since the sign of Libra is associated with the Swadisthana chakra so this makes this sign a very creative, artistic, and music-oriented sign and when Mars and Saturn are placed in this sign, they create the action of music such as playing the Guitar especially when the 6th lord Venus is placed in the sign of Cancer along with Mercury. So, this chart looks quite relevant for a person who is practicing the playing of a musical instrument like a Guitar.
Here is the placement of all his planets as per the Nakshatras
Lagna > placed in Rohini Nakshatra pada 1
Sun (DK) > placed in Punarvasu Nakshatra pada 4
Moon (GK) > placed in Dhanistha Nakshatra pada 4
Mars (AK) > placed in Visakha Nakshatra pada 1
Mercury (AmK) > placed in Ashlesha Nak pada 2
Jupiter (PiK) > placed in Moola Nak pada 4
Venus (PK) > placed in Pushya Nak pada 2
Rahu (BK) > placed in Rohini Nakshatra pada 1
Saturn (MK) > placed in Swati Nak pada 3
