What do the 12 houses in your birth chart mean?

The planets and zodiac star constellations in the sky have major influences over our lives and the people we interact with.

Each planet has its own distinct energy — like Venus being associated with love.

Each zodiac sign carries its own personality — like Gemini being very social.

Each zodiac sign has a ruling planet. And the combination of a ruling planet and a zodiac sign creates a house. The order of the houses follow the path the sun takes around the zodiac star constellations— Aries being the first house of the zodiac.

The ruling planet is the overall energy of a house and the zodiac sign is how that energy will be expressed.

The Third House (Mercury + Gemini)

  • Language
  • Early education
  • Transportation
  • Speaking
  • Writing

The third house, also known as The House of Communications, is a combination of Mercury and Gemini.

Mercury is all about mentality, thinking patterns and mindset. Gemini is about the intellectual and interacting with one’s environment.

The third house deals with all forms of communication and how you use your mind to communicate your thoughts. The third house also covers short distance travel.
