But Venus in Kaam bhav increases desires and passion. And in my view, Venus in the Moon sign shows a person can be very creative and tasteful. And the cancer sign represents loving and nurturing, and traveling. Now, venus is wealth and Cancer is a flowing river, so money should be in a flowing state like one should keep on spending.

Now when a planet that represents beauty, sales and marketing, and fine arts is in Sagittarius that represents higher learning and 3rd house represents hand skills also. Here a person can have an inclination in some artistic creative things.
Now here is the catch, Sagittarius is the natural 9th house, so if the 3rd house task is involved in work, it will boost his fortune and luck.

Jupiter in Aquarius
If you are Sagittarius Lagna and Jupiter is in the airy sign of Aquarius. Here Saturn is the lord of the 3rd house. Jupiter here is the 4th lord as well. So if the 4th lord is in the 12th house, this gives possibilities to reside abroad or away from home town.
The planet Jupiter represents knowledge and 3rd house declares media, writings, and communication, and airy signs also highlight knowledge.
This means the person’s goal is to spread knowledge and bring awareness to society through social media.
Capricorn Lagna – Saturn in 3rd House in Astrology
Saturn in Pisces

Here the main goal of a person has Saturn attributes, so with those traits, he makes his recognition using writings, public speakings, the internet, and marketing.
Now Saturn is a slow-moving planet, and a karaka of disease, darkness, and death so the writings can be intense, and more research-based. Or these people write very slowly and with deep-felt meaning.
Aquarius Lagna – Saturn in 3rd
Saturn in Aries
If you are an Aquarius Lagna, Saturn is in the fiery sign of Mars. Here Saturn is debilitated, so again Lagna lord debilitated in the movable sign and in the house of courage, efforts, and different modes of communication.
Now this Saturn has higher goals, but there are chances, he will not put in much effort. Or even such people leave their ideologies behind to attain their goals.
Now Saturn is a fiery sign, so this shows passion and determination. But since here it is also the 12th lord, so it can give issues related to siblings, and fulfillment in life.
Pisces Lagna – Jupiter in 3rd
Jupiter in Taurus
If you are a Pisces Lagna, Jupiter is in the earthy sign of Taurus. Here Venus is the lord. Now Jupiter represents higher knowledge, prosperity, and teachers and children.
Here Jupiter will fulfill his goals, through speaking, socializing with others. But he will only talk about beliefs, faiths, ideologies, and traditional knowledge.
As here Taurus is the earthy sign and signifies material possessions, so Jupiter here will make his image through family wealth, and luxurious things.
This Jupiter has material goals, he will only talk about Vedic wisdom, but the real intention is in possessing family wealth.
This way I have shared the generic view of my understanding of the results of 1st house lord in 3rd house. But I will again suggest interpreting a horoscope in totality. Like you have to see other combinations as well. Plus you have to confirm the strength in other divisional charts as well.
