In astrology, Venus is the planet of relationships, love, beauty, and attraction. Because of this, your Venus sign influences your romantic relationships and who you're attracted to.

But it's not just your Venus sign that makes a mark on your love life — the astrology house your Venus sign is in also plays a part.

Just as there are 12 zodiac signs, there are 12 astrology houses, each influencing a different aspect of your life. 

The third house in astrology, ruled by the Gemini zodiac sign, is the house of communication. 

Having the planet Venus in the 3rd house in your natal chart means your communication style and thinking process are influenced by Venus's traits.

People with Venus in the third house will likely find that they're highly attracted to the Gemini Sun sign because it's in that zodiac sign that they'll find the intellectual match they crave. 

Venus in the 3rd house people are sapiosexuals, meaning they're attracted to intelligence above all else.

While this placement tends to fall in love fast, they don't always fall in love for long. This is because of Gemini's influence on the 3rd house, which leads this placement to need constant intellectual stimulation. While having Venus in the 3rd house doesn't mean the native is a cheater, it's likely that emotional affairs and micro-cheating may be an issue.

The third house also rules short-distance travel and neighbors. When it comes to relationships, this means this placement has strong relationships with their neighbors, and may even fall in love with them.
