Mars in the 3rd house: Parakram, Expression, Arms/Shoulders, Siblings, Short Travels
What I have observed over the years that Mangal or Mars draws a lot of attention from non-Astro folks. So I thought of writing down a quick article about Mars’ effects in all the 12 houses. I will try to cover in a very objective manner keeping side my creativity (whatever little) aside.
A Horoscope is called as “Manglik” if Mangal is placed in one of 1, 4, 7, 8, 12 houses; i.e. 5 out 12 people in this world are Manglik (aprx 42%). It indicates that it is not a big deal then? There are various varieties of Mangal coined by Astrologers: Kadak Mangal, Soumya Mangal etc! J Mangal with a Soumya planet like Moon or Venus is usually treated as Soumya. Or Mangal in Guru’s drushti is called Soumya. Even the one with Shani’s drushti is considered Soumya! So basically --- All Manglik varieties are Soumya?! J More on that later.
Mars is the governor of: Blood, Siblings, sports, land, vehicles, speed, aggression, adrenaline, south direction
The 3rd house Mars gain, this is a non-Manglik position. This is a naturally strong position for Mangal as 3rd house is about individual parakram. Mangal in this house makes a person quite friendly, mostly extrovert with energy in some sort of expression. Needless to say, this is a great house of Mangal for Sportspeople. These folks would enjoy the game and sports more than carrying the responsibilities like Sachin and Dravid who have Mangal in Dharma-Trikon (Duties). The Kaam-trikon Mangal would enjoy the game more than carrying duties relentlessly. (Kapil Dev 3rd house Sun in Sagittarius and 7th house Mangal in Aries – Both in Kaam-Trikon)
Prakash Padukone has Mangal in Mithun rashi in 3rd house, I suspect Dennis Lillee who has Mangal in Mithun also might have Mithun lagna and also Roger Federrer I think!
The 3rd house Mars is very significant from siblings’ point of view. It shows a definite karmic history with siblings and friends too. When there is a definite good or bad karma with siblings, then a person tends to have 3rd house Mars. A well placed shows very well-to-do siblings, a badly placed one could show blood, health issues with siblings and even a very badly placed could show miscarriage to Mom in the next pregnancy after this (your) birth. The intensity of this Mangal will show the degree of good or bad events for siblings.
These folks also tend to have some land 6 to 8 hours away from their native place. Now, again the intensity of the Mars would show good or bad luck with the land but some definite karma with land which is 6/8 hrs away from the native place.
This Mars is more action oriented or tactical than strategic Mars in the 9th house. They would like to attack the opponent directly than grinding them to slow death like Dravid. However 9th Mars to Moon or Lagna is seen in MANY Great sports-personalities. The 3rd Mars would not care much about stats but would certainly have various legends or “kissa” about how they tackled certain bowler, batsmen or a player and how they tricked them in some situation to take advantage etc. These folks would not be bogged down with the seriousness of the event (Say World Cup Finals) – they will still do/play like the way they play in the nets/practice!! J
This Mangal shows certain vitality or energy in expression, attitude of short-writing, painting or singing could certainly be there if well placed with say Shukra or Chandra – Poetry could very well be possible when with artistic setup (With Shukra in Shukra sign). With Budh in Budh signs it would show great MATHEMATICAL ability for sure – knowledge carried from the past birth in mathematics (engineering one and not just basic one).
This 3rd house Mars can also make person travel abroad or places that are 6 to 8 hours for short terms and it makes them stay away from home and family from time to time. However, they make very good friends/contacts at these distant places.
