Third house is the house for communication, messaging. It is also the house of short journeys. It is the house of courage, younger brother / sister, neighbors beside many other things. When Rahu is in the 3rd house, it gets strength because it is an “upachaya” bhava. “Upachaya” means growth, advancement, increment. Interestingly Good planets do not produce favorable results in the “Upachaya bhava”. It is not that good planets are bad, but they do not bring about favorable results as malefic planets. As Rahu is a materialistic planet, it brings materialistic gains and therefore it is considered favorable in the 3rd house.
