Third House in Vedic astrology is very important in terms of one’s courage, which is required to accomplish one’s goals. It’s about valour, courage, tenacity to take risks, recognition for one’s effort and perseverance. What the third house also means is one’s inclination towards intellectual hobbies, literary efforts and studiousness.
Waking up from sleep, one have a feeling which may be wonderful or may be sad; both of which are determined by ones third house (as per Vedic Astrology).
Third house of one’s horoscope also rules one’s physical hands, arms, ears, collar bone, neck, shoulder blade, upper chest, throat and nervous system. Third house also signifies ones cousins, neighbours, younger brother or sister, colleagues and friends. Third house also rules female servants and mediators. Third house is eighth from the eighth house and hence it determines the longevity of the native.
So, if you are in love with sports and your third house is strong, then you may be good sports –human. Apart from these, third house also determines change of residence and being 7th house from the 9th, this house also serves as spiritual house. Third house is also for writing, accounting, news, rumours, public instructions etc.
Hence, if one’s third lord is strong, then the native will have deep interest in writing, will have a spirit towards becoming a news editor, writer and also have the courage to face life’s challenges with a smile. Let’s place some interesting facts which tend to make some people face life differently. What will happen, if Rahu or Mars sits in the third house and Rahu is placed in a strong sign? The native tends to become a great singer or writer. However, Rahu may also cause diseases in the parts which are ruled by the third house. It is said that if the sixth house or the tenth house is related to the third house then a native may likely to join a uniformed service.
It is also to be noted that if the first, third or the sixth lord is somehow connected, then the native is likely to be in service. It is also to be noted that if the third, tenth and eleventh house is linked, then the native is also likely to earn through service.
Hence depending on the type of the house, its placement, its strength, its level of activity, a third house lord provides different situations in terms of opportunities or loss to an individual. A careful study of the third house lord and the third house planets can tell many tales about an individual life and the strength to overcome challenges.
The above write-up is a general prediction and these are my personal views, which may not match with other astrologers. This is based on my years of experience on reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.
Thanks once again for reading.
