Chiron in the 3rd House

Chiron in the 3rd House

Natal Chiron in the 3rd house of a natal chart indicates some emotional wounds connected with communication, or with the native’s siblings. The third house rules our interactions with the immediate environment, and thus its presence there shows unresolved traumas related to the houses’ matters and mostly has an influence on the native’s early years. Generally, asteroid Chiron is responsible for traumas and their healing; thus the house where it is placed is a rather sensitive area of the native’s life. In case that the asteroid is negatively aspected, especially by “malefics” such as Mars, Saturn or Pluto, the native may have experienced quite a lot of suffering. On the other hand, a well-aspected Chiron indicates abilities to heal other people in such matters, as the native has learned quite…

Lilith in the 3rd House

Lilith in the 3rd House

Before exploring the attributes of Lilith in the 3rd house, we should mention that the article is about Black Moon Lilith. Thus, we should distinguish this mathematical point of alignment from the asteroid Lilith, and also from Dark Moon Lilith, which is calculated in a different way. Lilith is not a planet and is not a material object. It is the hypothetical point connected to the apogee of the Moon’s orbit, the farthest spot from Earth that the Moon can reach. The Moon is not orbiting Earth in a circle but in an ellipse, and thus this calculation shows the astrological degree in the signs when the Moon transit is more distant from our planet. Black Moon Lilith is a rather obscure point of an individual’s natal chart. This topographical…

The 3rd House in Astrology

The 3rd House in Astrology

The 3rd house of a natal chart is a cadent one, traditionally ruled by Gemini and its ruling planet Mercury. It is considered to be the house of intellect and of all low-level knowledge that a native obtains in his life. In addition, it rules brothers, sisters, and relatives, while also everyone else that is close to the native such as neighbors. Communication, transport, and skills are also represented in this specific part of the natal chart. Having Mercury as its ruling planet, the third house is responsible for communication. Thus, the house includes both the actions the individual does to communicate and the devices he uses. Telephones, letters, small walks to see a friend nearby are all subjects of the 3rd house. The TV, radios, and newspapers are also…

Part of Fortune in the 3rd House

Part of Fortune in the 3rd House

Before exploring the attributes of the Part of Fortune in the 3rd House, explaining what this Arabic Part is might be needed. The Part of Fortune is an astrological point which can be calculated with the help of the Sun placement, the Moon placement, and the Ascendant. It represents the distance between the Sun and the Moon in the natal chart, added to the Ascendant degree. Depending on whether the native is born during the day or the night, the Part of Fortune is calculated in a different way. For an individual born during the day, we must subtract the Sun degrees from the Moon degrees, adding it afterward to the Ascendant degree. On the other hand, for a person born in the night, we subtract the Moon degrees from…
