As you can see, I’ve regularly talked about the 3rd House, 10th House, and 8th House of the horoscope. That’s because the 3rd House is a house of communication and writing. The 10th House is a house of profession. And the 8th House is a house of investigation and in-depth research.

As that will be read or seen by hundred thousand of its readers/viewers.
