More on the 3rd house

A 3rd house is a special place for the 9th house lord to be in because the latter casts a direct aspect upon its own house from its position.

As per sidereal Vedic astrology, this phenomenon is considered favorable as the planet supports and strengthens its own house and at the same time brings these strong and favorable energies to the 3rd house.

It also means that the 9th lord in the 3rd house is in 7th from its own sign. This is a favorable disposition as the 7th house is a benefic quadrant house or Kendra Bhava which signifies balance, peace, harmony, compromise, partnerships, societal norms, trading, the marketplace, etc.

Hence, the given disposition has a balancing effect on this whole combination, which is good.

Other than that, the 9th house belongs to the triangle of righteousness or Dharma Trikona and both the 3rd and 7th houses that are involved in this combination belong to the triangle of desires or Kama Trikona.

Thus, a huge amount of desire to succeed is reflected by the connection of these house types. If the 9th house ruler is in good dignity, it indicates that these desires are satisfied by moral means.

Results of 9th House Lord in 3rd House

Fortunate Siblings

In classical source Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra, it is mentioned that people with this combination are fortunate regarding siblings.

This effect is provided by the general significations of the houses involved. That is, the 9th is about fortune and the 3rd is about younger siblings in general.

Accordingly, with this combination, the favorable energies of the 9th house influence the 3rd house positively. As a result, the native is blessed with younger siblings who prove to be fortunate to the native in many ways.

Namely, this combination indicates that the siblings are blessed with good intellect and courage who contribute a lot to creating a successful life path with the native.

Moreover, the relationship between the natives and their siblings is very close, warm, cooperative and supportive, as the 7th disposition suggests.

In addition to that, the native is very supportive of and compassionate towards their relatives and siblings. The native makes a lot of effort to provide support and fortune to their spouse.

Alternatively, if the 9th house ruler is in bad dignity in the given house, it indicates a lack of cooperation with younger siblings mainly because of disharmony caused by selfishness.

As a result, the natives and their siblings are unable to find compromises and work on a mutual goal selflessly.

In rare cases, the heavily damaged 9th ruler in this house causes distance/separation from siblings and bad relations with relatives.

Virtuous & Charming Expression

In BPHS, it is also mentioned that such natives are virtuous, righteous, and charming.

This effect is provided by various astrological indications. Firstly, as the 9th astrological domain belongs to the triangle of righteousness, the presence of the lord of the mentioned house in the 3rd house influences the style of the communication of the native.

As a result of this positive influence, the native communicates in a very moral and righteous manner. They also behave ethically.

The charm is provided by the 7th disposition, which signifies the reflection of oneself to the public. Thus, with this disposition caused by this planetary combination, the righteous, moral, and ethical expression casts a beautiful self-image of the natives upon their immediate society. This makes these natives respected for these virtuous traits.

On the contrary, if this combination is ill-formed, it indicates a lack of virtuous character traits that cause being rejected by the members of society.

The lack of righteousness and compassion also influences their style of communication adversely. As a result, they can become hypocritical and lose their charm and harmonious aura in the process.

Wealthy & Successful

In classical texts, it is also mentioned that such natives have high chances of becoming wealthy and prosperous.

This effect has a lot to do with the action taking and hard-working nature of the native. To be specific, the 9th lord in the 3rd house increases the likelihood of success when the native takes action and puts in a lot of effort to reach their goals.

As the 3rd house is about mental capabilities, the support of the 9th ruler makes them especially intellectual. With these abilities, they can develop very good analytical and strategical skills which further supports success in ventures and careers.

As the 7th disposition is formed, the effort is directed towards trading, marketplaces, society, and career/entrepreneurship. Hence, this a very fortunate position to build something great out of the skillsets with natural luck and charisma supporting by the side.

Constantly Expanding Skillsets

The charming style of expression combined with great communication skills also contributes a lot to the prosperity of such natives. The communication, publishing, or information transfer through local networks about foreign matters, philosophy, morals, ethics, etc is proven to be very fortunate to the native with this combination.

Moreover, as the 3rd house is also a house of constant growth and improvement (Upachaya Bhava), it indicates that the prosperity and fortune of the native are constantly improving over time. It is because the native puts in a lot of effort to constantly develop new skills and widen their perspective.

Generally speaking, this combination provides fortune through writing communication, information technology, info transfer, local networking, hard work, and improving skills continually.

On the contrary, the weakness of the 9th ruler in the given house indicates a lack of courage and will-power to rake action and develop the necessary skillsets required to become successful. This also causes hindrances in undertakings which makes the native stay in the same position for a prolonged amount of time without advancing further.


As the 9th ruler strengthens its own house by aspect upon it, it naturally empowers the significances of the ninth house.

Accordingly, individuals with this combination are inherently faithful and always rely on God for support and success in undertakings.

If the combination is well-formed, it indicates that such natives also follow the moral and righteous paths while working hard to achieve their desired results.

With that being said, such natives have a desire to be successful and righteous at the same time.

Alternatively, if this combination is ill-formed, it indicates a lack of righteousness and morals which also reduces faith. It also reduces natural luck and charm which significantly increases the number of struggles in undertakings.

Frequent Traveling

This combination also indicates frequent traveling in order to expand horizons and develop new skills.

It is because the 9th house is about long-distance journeys while the 3rd denotes short travels.

Alternatively, this combination also causes interest in traveling to foreign countries in order to gain knowledge about various cultures and their ethnicity and religious beliefs.

In fact, individuals with this combination have greatly expanded perspective on the world which also expands their higher wisdom and intelligence.

Moreover, frequent long-distance journeys are fortunate to the expansion of the success of the native in general.

These natives are fond of writing or publishing of traveling and philosophical experiences gained from it.

Skilled Father

The 9th house also denotes one’s father and the positioning of the given lord in the 3rd house generally indicates a very skilled, righteous, and responsible father to the native.

The father becomes a good teacher and idol to the native. He also teaches a lot of essential skills and pieces of wisdom required to perform well in society.

Father is the source of support and fortune to the native. Knowing that they can rely on their father also provides a lot of courage to take risks in life.
