How the element of your sign, handles electronics:

Fire in the 3rd have short attention spans and can’t spend too much time in front of a screen, unless it’s for their work or FaceTime/text.

Water in the 3rd tend to escape through social media and can get caught up in artificial communities such as Internet friends over neighbors.

Air in the 3rd house, tend to get bored easily, so they get hooked on video games/TV/apps more than any other element, just for the interaction.

Planets in the 3rd:

If you have no planets in the 3rd, just take the sign and build that. Everyone must express, not everyone has a planet aiding or hindering. A stellium or 3 or more planets in a house, gives that house a lot of power. 3rd house stellium people are hilarious with strong voices.

Uranus in the 3rd: You had an unconventional upbringing. Quite possibly you were moved around a lot and never got to make a lot of friends growing up, and so were very hurt by it. Now you can’t stay in one place too long, but do desire roots.
