Natal Mercury in the 3th House

When Mercury is located in the third house of a natal chart, it feels at home. The third house is traditionally connected to Gemini and their ruler planet Mercury, and thus strongly associated with the intellect. This placement is extremely beneficial and, as you can guess, it has a very positive effect on the person’s intelligence. Such people are always interested in communications and will spend a lot of time socializing, both through technology and in person. They are rather talkative, which can be attributed to their parents’ encouragement to speak from a very early childhood, and to express themselves a lot. Their parents have been good listeners, and the child developed its speaking and writing abilities a lot earlier than the average person.

This planet in 3 House indicates that sensitivity is especially present in relationships with those around you, and therefore in communication. It therefore brings imagination and inspiration to this area, but also sometimes dependence and vulnerability, worry, anxiety, etc… (in the event of negative aspects). The feminine element can play a role in this domain but also in studies (whether it is the mother or another important feminine person). Finally, it also shows that the person could move frequently (the Moon is often a sign of change and movement), including in terms of their living conditions (home).

With good aspects of Pluto, the psychological sense will be reinforced, with those of Neptune it will be intuition and inspiration, with those of Uranus inspiration and the sense of communication, with those of Saturn seriousness and honesty, with those of Jupiter more enthusiasm and generosity, with those of Mars the ability to combine imagination and action, with those of Venus the sense of balance, with those of Mercury the sense of synthesis and adaptation, with those of the Sun the sense of integration.

With negative aspects of Pluto anxiety will be amplified and therefore the difficulty in communicating well, with those of Neptune the sensitivity and tendency to utopia will make it too easily influenced, with those of Uranus self-control will be more difficult, with those of Saturn there will be lack of adaptation and the feeling of being misunderstood, with those of Jupiter there will be a certain carelessness but also an excessive emotional side, with those of Mars the risk of tensions and discussions, with those of Venus differences in tastes and sensitivities, with those of Mercury too spontaneous and not always adapted reactions, with those of the Sun a difficulty in finding the right balance and behaviour.

As always, it is necessary to make the synthesis of the aspects to the Moon taking into account the sign of the Moon and the house 3 which is the backdrop of the way in which this domain is experienced.

You are clever, bright, adaptable, interested in many things and eager to learn. Mercury stimulates mind and body. You can easily put your thoughts into words and have the ability to implement your ideas. You are a real jack of all trades. Perhaps you will take many short trips.

This is a good position for teachers, people who work in great detail, or even those in the computing field. Good speaking and writing skills.
