    Thanks for bringing us this series on house rulers; I’m really enjoying your posts. My 3rd house is ruled by Pluto, which is placed in my 12th, and your description was spot-on in so many ways. I’ve found my dreams are a great source of information, so much so that I’ve always kept a dream journal by my bed; occasionally I’ll also receive messages via dreams. I’ve also periodically advocated on behalf of those who are less powerful, so again, your description fit. During the ’97 Jupiter/Uranus conjunction – which was conjunct my Moon and square my Neptune/Mercury/Jupiter conjunction in Scorpio right on the cusp of the 2nd/3rd – I began having really vivid dreams from another time period (weird, I know), and my psychic sensitivities were amped up to the extreme. It was as if I had an antenna that was picking up signals, and I had to communicate what I was receiving. This is good stuff – I’m looking forward to the rest of your series. Thanks again. LB

      I’m glad that the description fit for you LB, I hope I can keep it up :D I think that a 3rd house-12th house connection would be amazing to have. The 3rd doesn’t have as much glitz and glam as other houses, but it’s one of my favorites.

      Thank you for reading my blog.

    3rd House Taurus 12th House Venus yes to the above again and again.  If I were to go into how spot on your description is for me I’d come off like a goofball attention whore.   I dream of living with my people but having a secret hidden creative cottage to escape into and I intend to realize that dream someday.

    “Siblings have an effect on our fears, dreams and nightmares.”  I’ll say!  Ruler of my 3rd (Pluto) is placed in my 12th; Jupiter/Mercury/Neptune in Scorpio are all conjunct right on the cusp of the 3rd.  I’ve always sensed I had a lost sibling out there – it’s like I can feel our severed connection and the loss has haunted me.

    Right when transiting retrograde Mars (traditional ruler of my 3rd and ruler of my 8th) was *exactly* (to the minute) conjunct my natal Pluto, my suspicions were finally confirmed.  I actually have a half-sister who was put up for adoption before I was born.  All these years and now I finally know for sure.  Now I just have to find her.

    #
    • Michelle says:

      Wow! That’s amazing. A friend of mine had the same thing happen. She learned her mother gave an older brother up for adoption and never told her or her sister about him. Unfortunately, my friend doesn’t know what time she was born so I can’t check her cusps or rulers.

        It’s too bad your friend doesn’t know her birth time, I’m sure the astrology would be very interesting – real life experiences can be such great teaching tools.  That’s one of the main reasons I love to share in such great detail. (:0)  I’m actually in the process of trying to back-track using astrology to figure out what year my mom might’ve given birth, hoping it will help me in my search.

        The astrology of the “discovery” is pretty wild, for both my mom and me.  My mom (now deceased) is having her Saturn-Return, which is taking place in her progressed 12th, which is conjunct my natal 2nd house Sun (ruler of my natal 12th) and exactly opposite my 8th house BM Lilith/Sedna conjunction. 

        The T. Sun has been conjunct my mom’s natal Chiron in the 8th (conjunct my natal South Node in the 8th), and in a few days my mom will be having her progressed New Moon – in Leo (!!!), which falls in her natal 12th, my natal 11th; I think I’ve read where the 11th rules adoptions.  My mom’s New Moon is exactly square my natal 3rd house Jupiter in Scorpio (the apex of my one natal Yod).

        My chart has been very activated by transits lately – my 3rd house Yod, my Mystic Rectangle, 4th house Saturn and several other natal placements included.  Plus, I’ve had a few temporary Yods and T-Squares formed by outer planet transits.  Not surprisingly, my natal Ceres opposite Eris has been activated by Pluto’s transit through my natal 4th.  It’s been a very interesting time for me – personally and professionally – on a lot of levels.:)

        My sister has been found! :)  The ruler of her 3rd (the Moon) is placed in her 7th and is conjunct her North Node.  I hope this means we can develop a friendship.  We’ve been talking a LOT, so I hope so.

        #
        • LB says:

          It just occurred to me how with the ruler of my sister’s 3rd being the Moon, there’s the obvious connection between siblings and mother, or the role a sibling might play in nurturing and/or bringing news related to discovering who her birth-mom was.   I really feel as if I’m channeling my mom through all of this. 

          And my sister has Uranus in the 3rd in her natal chart.:0

          #
          • Michelle says:

            I definitely agree with that. My brother’s 3rd house is ruled by the Moon, so in his view my mother and I have many of the same characteristics. I was overprotective of him when he was younger. 

            #
            • LB says:

              That’s interesting about your brother.  It validates my own sense of how things seem to be playing out with my sister.  Are you older than your brother or does it just *feel* like you’re older?

              #
              • Michelle says:

                I am older than my brother by almost 6 years.

                #
        • Michelle says:

          That’s amazing LB. Were you the one who was searching for her or was it someone else in your familly? How much older is she? Did she know she has other siblings?

          #
          • LB says:

            I was just in the process of typing up a “family history” for my newly found sister when your comment arrived.  Thanks for being interested, Michelle.  This is one of the most significant events of my entire life, so I’m very excited.  Can’t get over the astrology!

            *I* was the one who was searching – the only one, actually.  My sister had given up hope of ever finding her birth family, so it was pretty miraculous how it all happened – and so quickly!

            She’s just a few years older than me (although I *feel* like the older one), and no, she didn’t know about the existence of any other children born to my mother.  She had a few bits of what they refer to as “non-identifying” information, but at the time of her birth there weren’t any other siblings.

            The strangest part of the whole story is that my mother gave my sister and I the same (very unusual) first name!  

            #
            • Michelle says:

              Wow, that is so interesting that your mom gave you and your sister the same name … it must have a very special meaning to her. Have you asked your mom how she came up with the name? How was your Mother’s Day this year after this exceptional finding?

              #
              • LB says:

                You’re right, Michelle – the name had a very special meaning to my mom.  In giving us both the same name, I believe it symbolized what it was she hoped for *both* of her daughters.   

                Remembering my mom this Mother’s Day was strange but nice.  I see my mom a whole lot differently now that I have a better understanding of what it was she was dealing with all those years.  It must’ve been really hard – wish she’d shared it with me when she was alive.  But better late than never! 

                And now that I’ve found my sister, when I look in the mirror, I no longer see my mother’s face staring back at me!  Miracle of miracles – I’m back!  My sister looks (and acts) even more like our mother than I do – my husband says it’s like my mom’s been reincarnated.  Only this time I get to do things differently.  It’s weird.:0

                #
                • Michelle says:

                  That’s so weird, LB. Does she live close to you?

                  #
                  • LB says:

                    Yes, very close.  She’s lived less than 30 miles away the whole time. 

                    The whole thing is weird – on so many levels.

                    • Michelle says:

                      Wow … that is crazy. Is Uranus transiting your 8th house yet?

    Also, I have Uranus in my 3rd house. I have several step-siblings, my brother is actually my half brother, and I have a brother who not actually related to me at all (step or otherwise).

    Hello to you all. What a great series, describing me to a tee! Especially this one – “3rd House Rulers in House.” I have Libra ruling my 3rd – and my Venus in is the 12th. For example, I am always disappointed when I go out in public, and I don’t have at least one pleasant, albeit slightly off-topic, conversation with another person. I feel like I am connected to the rest of the world when I do. You’re “Bang-On,” as they say in Britain…(-:

      Is Uranus involved with the 3rd or 12th as well, DonnaBahama?

    very cool information, fits me well. Regarding the comments I wanted to share that I gave up a son for adoption and wrote about it online thirteen years ago. Last summer me contacted on facebook. I was wondering for awhile if I should look up my chart for that day. I do not have his time of birth since the birth father stole the birth certificate we had and he was in foster care for several months until he was adopted. He actually was given my name by the adopted mother as a child and as an adult he searched for me and read that article. He saw me on FB but did not make contact until that specific day.

    #
    • AstroFix says:

      Why not look up the day? It would be interesting how the transits for that day plug into your chart. You can get a fairly good idea of his chart is you remember roughly what time he was born.
