Results of 7th House Lord in 3rd House

Challenging Marriage

It is mentioned in the ancient scripture of Vedic astrology, BPHS, that people with this combination have a difficult life partnership or marriage.

To explain this considered effect, we have to dive deep into the astrological indications.

To begin with, the 7th house denotes spouse and marriage while the 3rd house is a mild malefic.

Hence, the connection between the above-mentioned houses provides a lot of challenges and difficulties to this combination as far as life partnership is concerned.

The difficulty is likely caused by the ambitious nature of the native which takes away the precious time that can be given to spend with close ones.

This statement is supported by the fact that the 7th hours belong to far away foreign lands as being the opposite house to ascendant or birthplace house.

At the same time, the 3rd indicates short distant travel for hobbies and skill developments. Hence, this combination causes being away and distant form life partner due to traveling for work or business purposes.

As a result, the spouse is suffering on account of that and native experiences a lot of arguments and disharmony with the life partner.

Chatty Spouse

The 7th house gives a clue about the nature of the spouse of the native.

As the 7th ruler is in the 3rd house, it indicates a very communicative and talkative life partner. They are also faithful, devoted, spiritual, religious, and righteous if the combination is well-formed.

Less Interest In Family

The same classical source also mentions that such natives are having a small number of children.

The family matters are involved in this combination though the Bhavat Bhavam connection of the 3rd house with the 2nd house of family. Namely, the 3rd house is the 2nd from the 2nd house.

Hence, this combination indirectly affects family life adversely as the malefic 3rd house is involved.

This effect is a direct result of having not enough interest in raising children and growing family as the desires are strongly focused on self-development, self-motivated goals, and marketplaces. Hence, it takes all the energy away from the family matters and spouse.

Furthermore, less energy and lack of focus on the spouse and family matters indicate fewer children.

Alternatively, in the situation when the 7th ruler is in good dignity and well placed in the 3rd house, it is able to produce great effects out of this combination.

Namely, the native still has less time, motivation, and focus on family matters but the spouse accepts that. This compromise ensures that the life partnership will stay healthy and strong.

However, it also indicates that the native is frequently detached, distant, and away from the spouse, both mentally and physically. This causes suffering to life partner but not to the native, as the spouse is prompted to spend life away from the native or handle the family matters alone.

Another reason why these natives have less amount of children is that they tend to have low fertility.

It is because the 7th is naturally ruled by Venus which signifies fertility. As the 7th ruler is in a house of challenges, it indicates difficulties regarding fertility.

However, they also acknowledge that most of the efforts doest give huge success, which makes them increase odds by courageously and faithfully trying again and again. To be specific, trying to put in their effort and make the required steps to evolve in their trading, marketplace, or business.

Hard Work & Struggle

With that being said, their success never comes effortlessly. However, they are always in for a massive hard work and willing to put in all the efforts they can.

They will keep hustling until they see some results which will boost their courage and motivation to the extremes and keeps them going to achieve the next level.

As the 9th disposition of this combination suggests, these natives achieve their desires and goals in a righteous manner with honesty and purely self-made efforts without cheating or taking sneaky shortcuts on account of others.
