(1.1) There is a great deal of confusion among astrologers regarding the position of Jupiter in 3rd house and some astrologers treat it as an inauspicious house for Jupiter
(1.2) In ancient text on Vedic astrology both auspicious and inauspicious results has been attributed to the position of Jupiter in third house such as (1) The person having Jupiter in third house is miser, takes wrong way in his life and even though he is rich but suffers from loss of wealth (2) Person with Jupiter in third house is rich, chief man of his family and admired by beautiful females. These results are very general and need to be modified.
(1.3) In my years long experience in the field of Vedic astrology I have seen various results of Jupiter in third house in different horoscopes and some of them are given below:
(1.4) Even if Jupiter is debilitated in third house it gives prosperity and under such condition if Jupiter is well disposed in D10 chart it gives professional prosperity. Here afflicted Jupiter gives some health problems like neurotic problems to that person’s brother.
(1.5) In D24 chart if this Jupiter is debilitated in third house with Saturn in 5th house it gives competitive success in the field of education and same combination in D10 chart gives one professional success through competitions.
(1.6) For Vrish Lagna the placement of Jupiter in third house gives one good job but full of hurdles and for Tula Lagna this position of Jupiter gives one excellence in position in his job and even professional success through competition but here it also gives health problems affecting his progress of excellance.
(1.7) If D10 Lagna is Tula and Jupiter is in 3rd house it gives one professional excellence in the field of accounts and audit.
(1.8) In Kark Lagna weak and afflicted Jupiter in third house gives clashes between his parents and health problems to his parents and if it occupies 6th or 8th house in debilitation in D9 chart it gives chain of miseries to his life partner.
(1.9) In Kark Lagna if Jupiter is strong in third house this gives one prosperity and foreign residence or residence in distant lands.
(1.10) Jupiter in third house gives health problems to one’s parents.
(1.11) For Mithun Lagna Jupiter in third house with Sun in 10th house gives powerful Rajya yoga (Political Success) in the Mahadasha of Sun.
