In music theory a minor third is a musical interval that encompasses three half steps, or semitones. Staff notation represents the minor third as encompassing three staff positions. The minor third is one of two commonly occurring thirds. It is called minor because it is the smaller of the two: the major third spans an additional semitone. For example, the interval from A to C is a minor third, as the note C lies three semitones above A. Coincidentally, there are three staff positions from A to C. 

The minor third is commonly used to express sadness in music, and research shows that this mirrors its use in speech, as a tone similar to a minor third is produced during sad speech. It is also a quartal (based on an ascendance of one or more perfect fourths) tertian interval, as opposed to the major third’s quintality. The minor third is also obtainable in reference to a fundamental note from the undertone series, while the major third is obtainable as such from the overtone series. (See Otonality and Utonality.) 

The Minor Third encompasses 3 semitones or 90 degrees forming a Square in the Geometric representation on the Octave. It symbolizes Cancer and Capricorn as the 1st house for Cancer natives is the 10th house and the 4th house is the 1st house for Capricorn natives forming a square on the Zodiac wheel.

The sound symbolizes Cancer and Capricorn Sadness, struggle, and depth of feeling.
