3rd House & Mars etc


Well-known member
Hi; is anyone is familiar with the logic behind the association of the 3th house with (many seem to be Mars' traits?):

Primal mind
Sex-raw sex

I found those traits in a vedic astrology survey, seemingly.

So to speak, it reminded me of BML traits.
Assuming the 3rd to.be ruled by Gémini, i wonder how could it be that those traits are attached to it (?). The "siblings" description of the 3rd seems to be too narrow, anyway (**).

Would consideration of the 3rd a Mercurial house give a Martian quality to it (are twins making room not only to a rather fast friendly interaction but also a hostile one? Would a friendly interaction became hostile as far as it kept restarting over and over?)? Another link cuold be twins and meditation (directing twins' inward and alleviating Mars')?

(*) Are Gemini' twins belonging or even setting the siblings-description of the 3rd?; also, do twins relate to.mercury in the sense of a very close interaction, communication, etc?)

(**) My chart has Mars on Acquarius 3rd, square Jup Taurus 6th which is conjunct BML, in what seems to be a rather random or weird coincidence with the aforetold "Vedic" point of view regarding the 3th; given im Pisces sun, Sag Moon & Sag Ascendant both sq Sun, and assuming Jupiter to.be the overall ruler of my chart, all the traits of the 3rd in one hand and of Mars in it, sq Jupiter and Lilith on another seems quite important)

Also and at last the aforetold website states that 3rd house Mars is a good placement for the ("malign") planet.

Thanks a lot for reading; thanks in advance for any insigth

I'm not familiar with the Vedic logic of the 3rd house according to you at all, but I think that the 3rd house doesn't have much Martian qualities at all, but rather Mercurial, as 3rd house represents manner of speech, siblings, basic education, close travel, et cetera. I have Mars in 3rd house in Leo, and so mine has a more Martian quality than others, and similar to your Mars in 3rd house but in Aquarius, although mine is stronger than yours in some ways because of the fire element. I think that Mars in 3rd house is just an okay placement, but not in good conditions at all, actually.
