Mercury In 3rd House

Supportive Siblings, Unique Skills and Mental Strength!  - 3rd house in Vedic Astrology denotes siblings and early life or childhood, interactions with immediate surroundings like neighbours or friends, thought forms, short travels, writing & speaking skills. It also represents the way we form or process thoughts, speak, and learn a language. When Mercury is placed in the 3rd house, the natives are talented, curious, and inquisitive. They have a wide range of interests and skills that apply in every field. Bhrigu sutras mention that the native will have a great sense of ethics, righteousness, and dignity well early in their life or childhood. Mercury in this house has a great impact on profession, interests/hobbies, and relationships & bonding.  


When Mercury is strong in addition to a well placed third house lord, the natives earn great gains through their unique skill set and they are usually child prodigies. It is mentioned that natives can be super successful as early as at 15 years of age, they can possess assets or earn an actual job by their own efforts. Positive aspects of the ninth house also enhance the good results of this position. They are interested in mentoring and coaching or exchanging ideas with their intellectual group. They are very agile in learning and achieve prowess over the acquired skills. These people are list makers, versatile, and multitaskers. They are great at organising or managing mass events with ease. They are seen quite involved in their community.  


Natives with Mercury in the third house are too focused on enhancing their talent or honing their skills, they miss out on friends or normal course of life. Because of their excess talent or intelligence, they lack social skills. If Mercury is weak, it results in a hypercritical personality who tends to be suspicious and cynical about everything. They can be very nervous and fidgety. In the aim of keeping trends with current affairs they are seen actively involved in gossiping and trivial talks. They can be talkative, hasty, and often blab in social circles.

If Mercury is associated with malefic planets in the house, the native might not be devoted to a single partner, and also tend to remain in contact with exes even after breakups/ separation. They can lose their siblings or paternal wealth. These natives lie efficiently with a straight face and use their friendly personal and tact to get away from delicate situations.
