Saturn in 3rd House

Saturn in thrid house astrology model

The third house represents understanding through information, and what we know as a result of interactions within our community. "Community" here means neighbors, siblings, short journeys, letters, news and rumors. This house rules our rational thought and conscious mind, memory, speech, early education and environment, writing and communication, dexterity and taken-for-granted skills, explorations, investigations, inquiry, and research of all kinds. Planets in the third house describe the quality and quantity of our mental and nervous energy.

With Saturn in your third house your education may be interrupted, but you’ll be an eternal student seeking information your whole life. With your good concentration, mental depth and intellectual self-discipline you'd make an excellent researcher or scientist. There may be a tendency to stick to the familiar due to an unconscious fear of the unknown. Watch out for depression. You don't waste words, and communications tend to be short and to-the-point. There may be some weakness in the lungs with this placement of Saturn, so be careful about smoking.

If Saturn is within 10° of the fourth house cusp (the nadir), then it is conjunct the nadir and much of the foregoing interpretation starts to become weaker. If Saturn is in the third house AND within 4° or 5° of the nadir, then it is said to be on the "dark side" of the fourth house, and it influence will be felt in the fourth as well as in the third house. The closer a third house Saturn is to the nadir, the more it will be interpreted as though it were in the fourth house; when less than 3° from the nadir, a third house Saturn expresses itself primarily—and eventually entirely—in the fourth house.

Astronomically speaking, the third house is that one-twelfth sector of the local sky clockwise from the nadir (see above picture), and is occupied by planets in the two hours after they pass through the lowest point of the local sky.
