Mercury: Effects and Remedies
Mercury is the smallest planet of the solar system. The author has compared
Mercury with a bat, which keeps hanging upside down and pounces upon the face of
a child at the first opportunity.
The native fails to understand anything and
meanwhile the mysterious and mischievous Mercury turns the cycle of fortune in
the reverse gear.
Mercury produces the effects of the planet or planets it is
associated with. Mercury is considered malefic in the 3rd, 8th, 9th and 12th
houses. Rahu gives bad results in 1, 5, 7, 8 and 11th houses.
If Mercury and
Rahu both are in their auspicious houses then Mercury causes havoc in the
natives houses and produces disastrous result like putting the native behind the
bars or creating troubles of the same sort.
Mercury is considered auspicious in
the 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and the 7th houses and gives bad results when placed in the 3,
8, 9, 10, 11 and 12th. Its colour is green and Moon is its enemy.
Sun, Venus and
Rahu are friends, whereas Mars, Saturn, and Ketu are neutral to him. 7th house
is the Puckka ghar of Mercury.
It stands exalted in the 6th house and gets
debilitated in the 12th house. Affected Venus causes diseases of tooth and
nervous system. If Mercury is placed alone in any house the native keeps running
and wasting time here and there.
Mantras for Mercury (Budha)
Mercury, known as Budha represents `buddhi’ – intelligence, whereas the Moon
(Chandra) signifies the innocent mind. Mercury is a karaka or indicator of
intelligence, commerce, education, writing, books, humour, scholars, orators,
lawyers and consultants. Budha closely follows Sun (Ravi) – either he is ahead
or rising behind Ravi. Budhaditya yoga, for that reason is found in many charts.
This is also known as Nipuna yoga. Budha gives proficiency (Nipunata) in many
subjects. It is up to the native how he would use such talents. He can become a
successful detective or choose to be a thief! Due to this Budha is not
classified as malefic or a benefice. He takes the attitude of his associates.
He gives wit and a flavour for jokes. Intellect is born out of imagination and
wisdom that is the meaning of the story that Moon representing imagination
abducting Tara, wife of Guru (Jupiter). Budha hates Chandra which means the
evaluated intelligence overthrows innocence and imagination. The successful
critics cannot become creative writers! Budha when afflicted or badly placed
causes mental problems, skin diseases and misunderstandings with relatives.
Propitiation measures to Budha gives high intelligence, fast reading skills and
cools down mental anxiety.
