“Everything in future will improve
if you are making a spiritual effort now.”
—Swami Sri Yukteswar
“Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment.
Full effort is full victory.”
The third house shows individual self expression and the effort we put out to accomplish things. This house can reveal talents in writing, music, acting and painting - any form of creative expression. The third house also reveals our courage, hobbies and passions.
This is a house of communication and also governs short journeys. Research, lecturing and sales fall under the third house's domain.
The third house also represents our brothers and sisters and our relationship with them. It governs our immediate environment as well as our friends, colleagues and neighbors.
The Sun (Surya) represents both the ego and the Soul in an individual's chart.
