Mercury in Third House in Vedic Astrology

When Mercury is posited in the Third House the desire for travel and variety is greatly increased. It indicates both domestic and inter-continental travel. The native has the potential to take up several different areas of studies, as his interests are varied. He should be careful here though, as sometimes, he will tend to gain only a superficial knowledge of each subject and nothing significant will be learned. It is a very good position for Mercury because Mercury is the ruler of the natural Third House and the influence will be harmonious. Mercury in the third house can give career related to travels, journalism, writing and publishing. When Mercury is retrograde in third house there is strong mental activity, the person invests much energy to be understood and need for developing an analytical mind.
