MARS IN 3rd HOUSE
If Mars is in the third house, the native will have no younger brothers or sisters and the native’s wife will be of questionable character but this will not happen if Mars is aspected by a benefic. He will also have financial gains. If Mars is associated with Rahu or Ketu, the native will have association with prostitutes. He will have inimical relations with his brothers and will face difficulties on that account. His wife will have a well- shaped female organ. He will have few brothers and sisters. If Mars is associated with or aspected by malefics, the native will suffer from loss of brothers (and sisters). If Mars is in his own sign (Aries or Scorpio) or is in his sign of exaltation (Capricorn), the brothers will be long-lived and the native will be patient and brave. He will prove very valourous in the battle-field. If Mars occupies a friendly house, the native will be courageous.
Comments-All the effects given above are appropriate and in accordance with the significations of the third house except those given in Sutras 16 and 20. According to Sutra 16, Mars in the third will make the wife of the native adulteress. The third house has nothing to do with wife and wife’s character. This effect could be ascribed to Mars in the third house only if he were to be in conjunction with the lord of the seventh house or with Venus (who is a significator of wife, marital life and love affairs).
In Sutra 20 it is stated among other things that the wife of the native will have a well-shaped female organ. Our humble view is that this matter has nothing to do with the third house.
Brihat Jataka-Effects same as for the Sun in the third house. (See Part II, Chapter I).
Phaldeepika-The native will be full of good qualities, wealthy, happy and valourous and he cannot be suppressed by any body. But the native will not be happy on account of his brothers (this can mean that he may have no brothers or the relations between him and his brothers may be inimical).
Saravali-The native will be valourous, unconquerable, without brothers, equipped with good qualities, healthy and famous.
Chamatkar Chintamani-The native will be valourous, wealthy (Wealth earned by valourous deeds) unhappy on account of brothers and relations.
Note-The third house is an ‘upachaya’ house where malefics are said to give benefic results in accordance with the significations of the house. All the above authorities seem to have based their views on this principle. Mars is a significator of brothers. He is also a karaka for the third house. Mars in third is said to give ill effects in regard to brothers. This is perhaps due to ‘Karako Bhava Nashaya’ theory propagated by some of our ancients. But we strongly hold the view that the line taken by Bhrigu Sutras that all good effects in respect of brothers will be realised if Mars is in his own or in his sign of exaltation, or is under benefic influences, is very relevant, logical and correct inspite of the ‘Karako Bhava Nashaya’ theory.
