Ketu in 3rd house: Ketu is an intuitive, psychic force and the most dangerous among the planets to deal with, as it is not open to reason. It is easy to understand the Rahu personality, but not possible with Ketu types.
The main reason is Ketu, being a headless planet, does not show the true image. It is unpredictable and irrational that is related to all underground materials and research. We are discussing 3rd house of communication, now this exceptional and unpredictable approach will transfer in the person’s writing.
Let me give you a quick detail of 3rd house things in Astrology. The 3rd house signifies courage, a short-distance journey, and siblings. Plus it signifies the communication, passion, creativity planning, presentations, and hobbies of a person. Mars and Mercury are the karaka or significators of the 3rd house, Ketu.
Ketu gives results as per its sign lord and the planets it is conjunct. So it is important to understand that two people might share the same 3rd house Ketu position but they will not get the same results. The three factors will work in a collective manner- House, sign, sign lord, and planets placed with Ketu.
Now always remember one thing about Ketu that wherever it is placed in the chart, you have a specific ability related to this house. As 3rd house represents creativity, communication, and presentations so Ketu here will give magic talent, in its communication, and presentations.
Ketu and Mars
Mars is the karaka of the 3rd house, and Mercury is the 3rd lord of the natural zodiac. Therefore in this case Mars and Mercury’s significations will be added to Ketu results. And since Ketu acts like Mars, so all Martian features will be added in its desire, presentation, and planning. Like aggression, sharpness, irritation, and harshness.
Ketu is dry and has a contracting force, and in 3rd house, the Martian qualities act as a catalyst. Then the deals, contracts, and agreements will be made according to the desire of the person. Since he has mastered this ability of documentation and displays.
Ketu in 3rd house for Marriage
While talking about marriage 3rd house is 12th from the 4th house, also know as Sukh Sthan. It makes the person rude in its expressions and gives arrogance and abnormalities in his dealings. So a commanding and dominating attitude does not support marriage.
Moreover, if Ketu is behaving at lower principles then it gives misunderstanding and argument in its dealings and communication. Now harsh speech, ego, aggression, fiery temperament, such features weaken a happy marriage.
But if Ketu is working at higher principles like if Jupiter’s relation then it will make the person spiritual and give detachment with the worldly things. This pattern is also not a supporting determinant for a happy marriage.
If we analyze marriage considering Mercury’s significations in 3rd house, then again Mercury being an impotent planet, gives eccentric behavior. In my view, strange and dominating communication forms a rift in marital relations.
Ketu in 3rd house for Career
Ketu in 3rd house actually gives great results in Career. All the 3rd house-related options like communication either radio or T, V., plus jobs related to accounts, calculations, statistics, trading, and banking.
Likewise Diplomats, ambassadors, public speakers, intelligence, logic, and education sector. Even the Media publishers, legal advisors, psychologists, are signified by 3rd house.
Here one gets so many good options to prove himself. Also since this is a Upachaya Bhav, so if it gets related with other Upachaya Bhav like the 6th house and the 10th house, then it creates raj yoga. It has been observed that malefic gives good results in Upachayaya Bhav. Therefore Ketu gives excellent results in the profession in the 3rd house.
Transit Ketu in 3rd House
When Ketu transits in the 3rd house of your horoscope for 18 months. It will associate the results of your natal position with 3rd house results. As you know, transit Ketu is only a delivery boy.
It will only dispatch the parcel it has promised in the natal position. Like if the natal position of Ketu is the 8th house then the transit Ketu of the 3rd house will give obstacles, and delays, in deals, and contracts. Moreover suddenness or accidents at the time of short-distance travel. Here the 3rd house will act as 8th from 8th house, also called Maraka.
So in this particular time, all 3rd house significations like short distance travel, new contracts, and new plans will be instated. Again it depends on the sign lord and star lords as they decide the final outcome.
Ketu is the storehouse of whatever you have learned in your past life. But it gives the best results when working on higher principles, with good conjunctions. As only then it can bring the best talent out of the person and make him create his own world. This is the reason Ketu symbolizes the flag. As it takes the person to move upwards towards his excellence.
But if bad conjunctions then it can make the person wander for happiness. This placement requires a balance between drive(Ketu 3rd) and path(Rahu 9th), aggression (Ketu 3rd), and compassion (Rahu 9th). But only evolved souls are able to strike this subtle balance, and it is through their lives only the beauty and gentleness of this placement finds expression.
