The Third House

House of Gemini Element: Air

Ruling Planet: Mercury

Area of Consciousness Personal

Awareness through communication

Sun in House 3

The Sun in House 3 signifies an incarnation in which experience to be gained is from working with the concrete mind.

This placement of the Sun usually produces a strong intellect and a gift for communication, especially if the Sun is supported in House 3 by Mercury.

Third House people usually demonstrate considerable awareness of the importance of the environment in the formation of the individual. Whether their focus is the cultural or physical aspect of environment is a matter influenced by the sign on the cusp of H3 and that occupied by the Sun.

The Air signs tend to produce intellectuals; the Fire and Water signs, an interest in the arts; the Earth signs, a concern with their physical environment. All H3 people tend to see the individual and his environment in a symbiotic relationship: pollute one and the other is also polluted. In education is the salvation of both.

Unless the outer planets are in H3 or opposing the Sun from H9, a person with this placement of the Sun usually applies himself to analysing and commenting on the mores of a society rather than questioning its fundamental tenets. The House of Gemini is more likely to produce a commentator rather than a

revolutionary. A person with the Sun in H3 examines his society as an interested insider.

This area of the horoscope confers a rationalist's perspective, which a person with the Sun in H3 rarely steps outside. Indeed it is unusual for a H3 person to step outside the culture of his birth for any length of time. He considers himself to be a product of that culture, to 'speak the language' both literally and metaphorically. Away from the familiar territory of the society of his birth he tends to feel disoriented and cut-off. The presence of Uranus and / or Pluto in H3, however, is likely to negate the sense of belonging, which goes with this placement of the Sun, and turn it into alienation.

Yes, Taurus Sun/Venus in H3, I also have Neptune in Scorpio (retrograde) H9

I identify strongly with this interpretation, analysing, rationalising and commentating on my environment, hmmm...sounds like me. I'm particularly concerned about my environment and will change aspects physically, plantings, landscaping etc. for a harmonious outlook.

I've lived out of my country of birth for 12 years, but it's true I returned home to my birthplace (directly across the road from where I was born to be exact) and have lived back here happily for 6 years, It's true I felt disorientated away from my familiar territory.

Scorpio sun/Neptune in H3 opposed by Jupiter in H9.

I find myself to be equal in the intellectual & arts dept. The link said that Neptune in H3 "As with Uranus, the Third House placement of Neptune tends to adversely affect the concentration and rarely creates any leaning towards the sciences." I do have trouble with concentration, but not in the sciences.

In junior high I had the table of elements memorized, yet I find it hard to grasp some of the concepts of astrology. I need someone to show me as I tend to jump around. One question leads to another, and then I get frustrated when I can't find the next piece of the puzzle (or what I think should be the next piece).

What effect does Jupiter have when it opposes my H3?

Planets don't oppose houses, only other planets. Jupiter in the 9th house (house opposite 3rd house) is Jupiter in house of its rulership, making Jupiter strong there.

I have Sun conjunct Mercury, and Moon conjunct Neptune in my 3RD HOUSE in Scorpio. I'm just wondering how all this Scorpio energy interacts with the 3RD HOUSE energy.

Planets focused in the 3rd house (thinking, also writing) add strong focus on thinking and writing. You might be interested in journaling or fiction writing.

Tim, I look forward to reading those creative lines you end your Posts with.

"There is no use trying," said Alice; "one can't believe impossible things." "I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." Lewis Carroll
