Understanding The 3rd House In Astrology

  • As we know that there are 12 houses, 12 zodiac signs and 9 planets in astrology. Each house has its own significance with the presence of different planets in it & thus the effect of every planet differs from person to person depending on the sign & house they have in their birth chart. If we talk about the 3rd house, it is also known as the house of communication.


    3rd house is related to Gemini. Mercury acts as the natural significator of the 3rd house. Body parts like shoulders, arms, hands, upper chest, lungs, collarbone, ears & breathing canal are included in the 3rd house. This house refers to the neighboring countries & relations with them in the chart of any country.


    If the Rahu or Ketu are placed in the 3rd house along with mars, then the person may suffer from ear ailments. If the malefic planet occupies the 3rd house then it may cause the problem to the body parts but there may be some positive effects like if the 10th lord is in the 3rd house then the person will get a job. Such a person will also have courage & the presence of Saturn in the 3rd house makes the person more cautious.


    Here, we will see the presence of zodiac signs in the 3rd house.
