Chapter 25 –House of Courage

     
     The third house from the ascendant is called house of courage, siblings and perseverance. These are the three main things we can know from this house
 
     If the lord of the third house is exalted or in own house or in friendly house then the above mentioned things would be favorable to the native. If debilitated or in enemy house then would get unfavorable results.
     In north Indian charts, the house next to the second house in anti-clockwise direction is third house. From the natural order of zodiac sign marked in the ascendant, we can derive which zodiac sign is third house. For example if the ascendant is marked with 4 then the second house would be Virgo.
