Jupiter Transits: 3rd House

Jupiter 3rdWhen Jupiter transits the Third House the desire for growth and expansion influences how you think and communicate your ideas. Your mind will become more optimistic and you’ll be more inclined to positive thinking which can help you to achieve whatever you want. This is also a great time to learn new ideas, expand your horizons through education or training in new skills, and broaden your interests.

You may spend more time travelling within your immediate environment, and everyday communications will probably increase. You could expand your reach through social media, grow your connections and find new friends. This is likely to expand your perception of the world and increase your consciousness. Your relationships with relatives should be good too, particularly brothers, sisters, and cousins.

Your thinking will be more positive so your attitude towards others and your environment will be generous and broadminded. You can learn a lot about the world and yourself because you won’t be phased by any differences you see between people. This makes communication easier and you’re likely to feel able to speak your mind without worrying what others think. Now is a good time to tackle those difficult conversations or awkward subjects because you can talk more easily about anything. You may also do more writing, even if this isn’t something you would normally do.

Jupiter also expands your plans for the future. You may have more visions or intuitions about what you would like to do and how you could improve your life. You may realise that many of the old limitations you’ve been living with are self-imposed due to self-doubt. With increased self-belief and confidence you’ll be able to move beyond those limitations and expand the scope of your influence.

Possibilities with Jupiter transiting the 3rd:
  • Educational opportunities
  • Financial benefit from relatives or neighbours
  • Learning new skills
  • Expanding your consciousness
  • Expressing your ideas to more people
  • Teaching
  • Writing
  • Travelling in short journeys
  • Feeling sociable
  • Positive thinking
Watch out for:
  • Taking on too many projects at once
  • Running around and not getting anything done
  • Talking but not listening

The most important influence from Jupiter in the 3rd is on your mind and consciousness. This is the time to examine your thought processes and determine whether they serve you or not. Jupiter can help you to weed out all the old negative or unproductive attitudes you’ve taken on without realising, and let them go. Your consciousness can expand and become more positive, and this can help you to make improvements in other areas of your life.

  1. Hello was wondering how accurate one needs to be with one’s birth time can up to an hour out make a difference to the readings? Thanks Steve


    1. Hi Steve – the more accurate your birth time is the better, obviously. But a difference of one hour may or may not matter – it depends on whether your Moon and Ascendant are near the end or beginning of a sign.

      Generally, the Moon moves about 13 degrees every day, so in an hour it can move half a degree. That might not seem like much but it could tip it over into another sign or house, and it can change the aspects it makes to other planets.

      With the Ascendant it’s more difficult to generalise because it depends on the sign – some of them rise faster than others. So an hour can make a difference to the degree of your Ascendant and so change the entire shape of your chart – depending on which house system you use.

      The best thing to do is to make up a series of charts within the time range and then test them against transits and progressions over a period of time. That way you can work out which chart seems to be the most accurate.

      Hope that helps.
