Mercury/ Budhha Planet

Mercury in Hindu Astrology represents the intellect and mind, and rules Gemini and Virgo. It has its adoration in Aquarius. Mercury is an airy planet, connected with all forms of communication and out-flow and in-flow of communication and intelligence. Its position shows how the mental function will be expressed, and where skills and techniques are available to you.

Mercury retrograde that occurs three times a year for about 3 weeks every time, is interpreted chiefly strongly. The Mercury retrograde period is not a good time for making new business plans or new decisions, but it is perfect for reflecting on the current situation. It is best to silently see the inner process for the period of Mercury retrograde, and to carry forward with the future plans.

Its Gochar (Transit) is considered positive in 2,4,6,8,10,11 houses. On the other hand, its Gochar is considered negative in 1,3,5,7,9,12 houses.
