The planet Mercury, known as Buddh Grah, holds a significant sway in our birth chart, exerting a profound influence on our lives. In Hindu mythology, this celestial body is revered as a deity. Astrologically, Mercury embodies traits of logic, sharpness of mind, memory, intelligence, and wit. It's hailed as the prince among the nine planets, yielding favorable outcomes in the company of benefic planets but unfavorable when paired with malefic ones.
The positioning of Mercury can sometimes yield adverse effects, such as business setbacks, health issues, educational disruptions, and more. Remedies to pacify these negative effects become essential during unfavorable planetary transits, especially during the mahadasha or dasha of a planet.
Astrologically, Mercury is a youthful and swiftly moving planet, wielding substantial influence over various facets of life. It bestows individuals with a quick wit, facilitates business acumen, enhances communication skills, influences trade and commerce, aids in mathematical prowess, eloquence, and fosters friendships and astrological pursuits. While generally considered auspicious in Vedic Astrology, Mercury can take on malefic traits when positioned alongside malefic planets in the birth chart. It rules over the Gemini and Virgo signs, finding exaltation in Virgo and debilitation in Pisces. Moreover, it shares a friendly rapport with the Sun and Venus in astrology.
