Do you know what the term “1st house” or “2nd house” means? & No I don’t mean the 1st or 2nd house up the street. In astrology houses represent the fields of experience wherein the energies of the signs & planets operate. Instead of just describing the outward experience & the circumstances of the person’s environment that’s specified by traditional astrology, the houses also reveal their inner state, personal subjective experience, & attitudes. There are 12 different houses that are associated with each sign & today I’m going to be talking about the 3rd house.

So what does the 3rd house have to do with? The 3rd house is known as the house of communication. Especially communication with people that you hold close to you Like your neighbors &/or your brothers & sisters. It also has to do with written & verbal communication, but it also has to do with the communication you can have with others telepathically. The 3rd house is associated with the sign Gemini & ruled by the planet Mercury. It represents the constant search for knowledge & the experience of the immediate environment. The intellect & your ability to communicate is found in this house as well. Even your reluctance to communicate with others is governed by this house. The 3rd house reminds us that it’s okay to use our conscious skills, as well as a more reflective intelligence, in order to make our way. The 3rd house also reminds us that our minds are quick, adaptable, & powerful…& when we use it to our fullest potential, we can do anything! Early education is another major part of the 3rd house, because it is in our early years when we are “taught” how to communicate & think. Harnessing our intelligence and sharing it effectively with others is the essence of the 3rd house.
