This person most probably will be mentally restless and constantly moving around the neighborhood.

This sign, ruled by Venus, often shows a strong interest in the arts, especially music.
When Gemini in The 3-rd HouseThe Gemini presence in this section of the chart always denotes a good conversationalist, a fact collector, and a mentally stimulating person. The only hesitation in the native speech occurs when too many ideas are simultaneously present at on time. The native's thoughts are also slightly more critical, and the native strives to create a style or quality of communication that is entirely his/her own. He/she would aim to write for writing's sake.

He/she takes pride in his/her ability to present ideas in an inimitable style. His/her powers of self-expression are outstanding, but sometimes style exceeds substance, as he/she speaks for effect and appeal to the emotions. Natives are good at knowing what to say and what not to say. Despite their versatility and adaptability, most of their ideas and opinions are rigidly fixed.
When Virgo in The 3-rd HouseThis sign suggests an inferiority complex centered around communication skills, especially in the early years. Virgo produces a nervous mind, and a tendency to brood over the past. The interests are personal and mental as the native concerns him/herself with perfecting some special techniques connected with communication, styles of expression and the collection and dispersal of news and opinions.
When Libra in The 3-rd HouseThe native is favored with charm and grace of speech, delivery or style of communication. He/she attracts many people by his/her persuasive salesmanship.

Generally these people are adept at the art of cooperation and adjustment.
When Scorpio in The 3-rd HouseThe Scorpio here puts much force into communication and the use of words. The native has an ability to transform with the written or spoken word.

When Sagittarius in The 3-rd HouseThe influence of Jupiter, the ruling planet of Sagittarius, suggests a very cheerful outlook on life, natural exuberance and optimism. The native is fortunate in his/her type of expression and in getting his/her ideas across to customers and clients in the marketplace. His/her whole personality has favorable "exchange value."
When Capricorn in The 3-rd HouseThe native is faced with an early struggle to express him/herself adequately or communicate effectively with others, especially customers and clients in the marketplace. Eventually he/she develops a certain "exchange jargon," which, while overly serious and at times intimidating, is nevertheless effective for what he/she is trying to sell. In your early years, these people may not be very interested in school or they were restricted in their ability to get an education. Later in life, this changes, and this person is apt to turn to studies to attain his/her ambitions.
When Aquarius in The 3-rd HouseThe native's thoughts and ideas are obviously unique and perhaps in time can be reduced to some sense or order. The native indulges in wild flights of imaginative thinking. This would be good for science-fiction writing. Uranus, the spontaneous planet, rules this area of the native's chart. Nervous energy generated by this planet may prompt him/her to say whatever comes to his/her mind.
When Pisces in The 3-rd HouseThe native has rare gifts for soothing and inspirational speech that fascinates his audience. The general effect is unreal but significant. Others are inspired by his/her communication. On the other hand, in communicating, this person can become over emotional and he/she may experience problems articulating, especially in his/her youth. Generally, these people like to be alone when they are performing any type of mental work. When allowed this solitude, they are very creative and imaginative in their thinking and writing.
