Sunil Pandey Ji who is going to teach us today on the planet Mercury he will tell us what results does Mercury gives in different houses in a chart and what are its effects on the native’s life We welcome you Sir My Pranam to all Jyotish is based on the principle of ‘Karm-Phal’ (i.e. fruits based on one’s own deeds) and thus all the planets give results as per the native’s deeds Today we are going to discuss about the planet Mercury in the same context. How does Mercury manifests it’s results, what is it’s basic nature etc what are it’s results as per the houses it is posited in and the conjunctions So, the first thing that we know is Mercury is closest to Sun So, Mercury is either conjoined Sun or is one house ahead or one house behind in any chart If we get into more detail, Mercury is max 28 degree away from Sun, either behind or ahead of Sun but it also gets combust at 14 degree So, we can conclude that Mercury is combust half of the time. But also, If Sun is the King then, Mercury is the Prince As per the classics and my own experience as well, Mercury is one such planet which being combust is doesn’t give much of adverse effects. In fact, a Rajyog called ‘Budh-Aditya’ Raj yog can be formed only when two of them are in close proximity. that means, when it is within 14 degrees of Sun and is combust, it will rather give more beneficial results This is what I have experienced in my practice of Jyotish. Mercury is Green in a color like grass and also is sweet spoken As per ayurveda, all diseases are categorised into Vatt / Pitta / Kaph and Mercury gives diseases of all 3 types If Mercury is badly placed in a chart then it gived disesases caused due to imbalance in all three elements Vat / Pitta / Kaph Mecury is also related to Nerves in body There are two planets that signifies nerves in a body.. Saturn and Mercury Though Saturn has more of a significance for nerves… but Mercury also signifies nerves Like Mars signifies, flash in a body same way, Mercury represents Skin If in any chart, Mercury is placed in Lagna, conjoined with Lagna lord or is aspected by it, native has good skin Mercury is fun loving, if Mercury is conjunct Moon or is strong in a chart, such a native is fun loving Also, if Mercury is strong in a chart, native also has presence of mind Mercury has presence of Mind whereas Jupiter represents wisdom e.g. a Mercury dominated native will express his opinion immediately on a matter whereas a Jupiter dominated person will think deep over it and then speak The quick response is due to the Mercury As Jupiter posited in lagna cancels many doshas likewise, Mercury posited in lagna also gives increase in fame and strength Also, Mercury removes thedosha caused by Rahu In Jyotish, Mercury is termed as eunuch, hence if it is conjunct a male planet, it behaves like a male planet but if it is posited with female planets, it gives results like female planets whenever it is posited alone in a house, then only it shows it’s true colours Mercury is very important for Jyotish. It represents Mathematics, and astrology is based on mathematics. Mercury also signifies, Dance, Medical doctor, Comedians, Policy maker etc. If Mercury is posited in 1/4/7/10 houses in it’s own sign, it makes ‘Bhadra Yoga’it makes a person very intelligent, wise and educated and he gets high success and position in life In jyotish we have two groups based on friendships.. one is Sun, Moon, Mars and Jupiter and the other is Mercury, Saturn, Venus, Rahu and Ketu But Mercury is also a friend of Sun So, Mercury is friends to both Sun as well as it’s Sun Saturn Now if we look at the solar system, Sun is in the centre and has it’s own light and all other planets revolve round the Sun Saturn is in the outermost orbit in the Solar System light that is reaches the Saturn is very less and so the planet is Saturn is a representation of darkness. Mercury being friends to both shows it has the capacity to take the native to the highest level of consciousness as well as the lowest level of consciousness Mercury along with intelligence, also represents one’s mind Mercury owns 2 signs, Gemini and Virgo. 7th to Gemini is Sagittarius and 7th to Virgo is Pisces to interpret it from the spiritual angle unless the intelligence and mind has the guidance and wisdom from Jupiter it will be deprived of the ultimate goal to achieve the highest level of consciousness but once Mercury gets support of wisdom and knowledge of Jupiter then only Mercury will give good results it will be able to attain the highest consciousness and final Moksha Mind is fickle in itself to control this, one should read good text and listen to scholars.. It will make Mercury strong In Gita, Lord Krishna tells Arjun, that 10 senses are like 10 horses and the mind has the halter to control of all of these 10 horses Charioteer is Mind and Soul is the chariot if the intelligence is good then the chariot will reach it’s destination and so will the charioteer It’s the nature of the mind to be fickle but being guided by wisdom and knowledge one can reach it’s highest goal or destination of emancipation. Jyotish and spiritualism are co related and when we move ahead with this belief then only we achieve our desired goals. Now, let’s discuss the trade and commerce, Mercury represents all kinds of businesses. Though we look at 10th house to determine one’s profession or business, but if Mercury is strong, native has the quality to excel in business as it gives the capability to maintain an equilibrium Native with strong Mercury, can maintain harmony with anybody using his speech, intelligence an wisdom hence, for business, Mercury needs to be very strong in a chart Also, weather related forecast are based on Sun and Mercury I have one more research that I would like to share with our viewers… whenever Mercury is retrograde, natives with Gemini and Virgo ascendants suffers in some or the other way Mercury gets retrograde and combust a lot of time… but combust Mercury doesn’t give bad results In my experience, native with Gemini and Virgo ascendants does get adversely affected every time Mercury gets retrograde Interviewer : Sir, I have a question here… As you mentioned, natives with Gemini and Virgo ascendant gets badly affected with Mercury retrograde as it is their lagna lord so does it changes the native’s own behaviour or does it causes problems to the native. It causes problems to the native and it holds true for both Gemini and Virgo lagna as well as Moon sign They may have unnecessary problems in life and also their mind gets disturbed during this period. So. there’s a remedy for it.. a week before Mercury gets retrograde, take 1.25 metre green cloth and place it over the Shivling in a temple Interviewer: Sir , if there’s a complete week left but just a few days, can it still be done? Yes it can be done. This can also be done anytime before Mercury gets retrograde but doing it a week before gives very good results. I have suggested this to many with Lagna or Moon with Gemini or Virgo sign and have received positive feedback. Jyotish is a subject of research…. and I have received feedback saying that their is a great relief in the problems and sufferings than before. The remedy is, on Wednesday, take a 1.25 metre piece of green cloth, place it on the shivling and lit up a lamp of mustard oil in the left side of the shivling This remedy gives good relief in problems caused by retrograde Mercury It’s a very simple remedy, doesn’t take too much of time but in turn a lot of problematic time can be spend peacefully Mercury gets retrograde every 3-4 months for around 15-25 days each time I have read that Vishnu has the lordship of Mercury and praying him makes Mercury give good results But it is experienced and also mentioned in classics, that Goddess Durga also has the lordship of Mercury If natives with week Mercury does ‘Saptashati path’ or ‘Durga Kavachpath’ is done, it strenghts Mercury also, chanting’ Om namo bhagwate vasudevay’ for lord Vishnu and worshiping ‘Shaligramji’ and presenting offerings gives good results. Interviewer : At many places, Lord Ganesha also has the lordship over Mercury.. Yes, that’s very true. Lord Ganesha is also worshiped for planet Mercury Natives running Mercury Mahadasha or antardasha or pratyantar dasha or simply to strength Mercury… should offer ‘Durva’ (a kind of grass) chanting ‘Om Gam Ganpatye namah’ specially people in some business must daily offer 11 ‘Durvas’ chanting ‘Om Gam Ganpataye Namah’ to Lord Ganesha this will help him have good business feeding green grass to cows also strengths Mercury In relations, Mercury represents maternal and paternal uncles and aunts and cousins so should also maintain good terms with them Mercury will be beneficial, when either Mantras of Mercury or it’s Loord are being chanted donations related to Mercury are done and the relations that Mercury represents are taken care of so to take care of them and respect them It holds true for every planet, not only for Mercury when their respective mantra and donations are done and relations are taken care of then only they give beneficial results and for business it is very important to offer ‘Durva’ grass to Lord Ganesh ji as he is the remover of obstacles. He removes the biggest of the obstacles In business, everyday luck plays it’s role so the native must do good deeds and give donations related to Mercury daily Stock exchange is also represented by Mercury Although, finances are ruled by Jupiter but for stock exchange trading, alongwith Jupiter, worshiping Mercury and Ganesh gives auspicious results One more thing I would like to share… As we know, Sun and Mars give it’s maximum between 0-10 degree Jupiter and Venus gives their results between 10-20 degree Saturn gives it maximum results between 20-30 degree but Mercury is one such planet which can manifests it’s results throughout 30 degree in the house Mercury is also related to one’s speech so if a person is soft spoken and is intelligent then he can resolve the biggest issues in life only with speech that is the reason business comes under Mercury as it knows how to deal with people using one’s speech Now, if you have any questions on this… Interviewer : No, I don’t have any questions here we have discussed the results of Mercury when combust or retrograde now we can move towards the 12 houses… how does Mercury gives results in different houses Yes sure, but before that I would like to share one more thing about combust Mercury here I have observed, when a native has Mercury as ascendant lord and is combust ascendant represents self, such native’s achieve high success in life and are prosperous and I have many such examples to quote so we can definitely say that Mercury being combust is not harmful Now we shall discuss different Mercury in different houses Mercury like Jupiter also get ‘Sthaanbal’ ( positional strength ) in ascendant or 1st house like Jupiter, Mercury in 1st house also help removes negativity in a chart makes one beautiful, intelligent and also gives communication skills earn respect, reputation, high position. An unafflicted Mercury here should gives beautiful results and thus in astrology, Mercury and Jupiter are said to have directional strength in ascendant. and if it also has benefic aspects or conjunction then it’s like icing on the cake. 2nd house is the house of family Mercury here is strong and the native earns money on the basis of his education, intelligence and behaviour his family is harmonious so Mercury placed in 2nd house is also gives good results 2nd house is also for speech, so natives with Mercury in 2nd house are very soft and sweet spoken Yes, as Mercury is the significator of speech, in 2nd house if it is strong, it gives good speech. but if Mercury is posited in 2nd house and is aspected by Moon from 8th house, then there will be problems related to finances and earns money after putting in too much of efforts If seen this in some charts although it’s not a universal principle As you rightly pointed out in the beginning, astrology is a subject for research. We come across such findings which can further be researched upon 3rd house is the house of siblings. In the natural zodiac the 3rd sign Gemini is ruled by the Mercury itself This is a favourable position for the Mercury such a native is more inclined towards business is self confident and may also take help from his close and dear one’s with his soft speech and communication skills he easily gets the help from his siblings and thus Mercury in 3rd house is also good Mercury and Venus are 2 such planets that if beneficial, they give good results in the 8th house also even in the 12th house They have such special qualities Mercury in 4th house gives material happiness, domestic happiness and though Mercury has no connection to vehicles, but Mercury in 4th gives good vehicles. specially the domestic happiness is seen from Mercury in 4th house but it must not be afflicted also, if Sun and Mercury are conjoined in 4th house which happens only if it’s a midnight birth also there are good yogas in the chart, such natives are highly placed govt. officials like IAS IPS Sun Mercury conjunction in the 4th gives high reputation and authoritative position Our little most finger is represented by Mercury so if it is long enough to be higher than the top most division of the ring finger (out of the 3) such natives are highly successful in life and if it is too high then they also attain high official positions Interviewer: I have a question here… only if Mercury is good in our chart, then only it will be visible in our palm ? That’s right, then only it can be seen in little finger or even if it is in level with the 3rd division of ring finger, then also they are successful but the longer it is, the more successful the person is but if it is smaller, it gives a lot of struggle in life. Noe, the 5th house 5th house is the house of education and intelligence Mercury here makes one sharp minded, has presence of mind and also has good children children are also intelligent and good good aspects and conjunction makes it even better Mercury in 6th house does gives some struggle 6th house is also the house of diseases and enemies But as Mercury also represents doctor, posited in 6th, it may also make the native a doctor. Mercury in 7th house is very auspicious If Mercury is alone in 7th house, also is not combust (this is only where we consider combustion of Mercury), such a native has a lot of material possessions he will be easy going, gains a lot of reputation and fame but Mercury must not be combust so far we have discussed that there is no much significance of Mercury being combust, but in 7th house, Mercury must not be combust and must be alone to give good results specially related to monetary gains also has a good wife, gets monetary benefits or boosts native self confidence as the 7th house is of life partner, Mercury being strong here will give good monetary support in 8th house, Mercury aspects 2nd house of wealth if benefics aspects 2nd house of wealth, native is wealthy, reputed and well respected in many classics it is mentioned that Mercury posited in 8th house gives good results just that it must be conjoined malefics like Ketu etc. As per my observation, Mercury conjoined Rahu gives good results but Mercury conjoined Ketu doesn’t give that good results though both are friends of Mercury but in 8th house, Mercury gives better results with Rahu than Ketu it doesn’t mean it gives bad results conjoined Ketu but it is more favorable with Rahu Mercury with Rahu natives mostly work in call centres or where diplomacy and communication skills are required Mercury in 9th house of luck is very auspicious If Mercury placed is strong, it gives knowledge of religion and spiritualism and also makes one write on it and makes a good orator They can be good writers and can effectively express themselves through speech Mercury is also very good being posited in 10th, natives gets higher education it also shows some connections with law, research, finance and banking or even business Mercury in 11th if strong gives help from brother also, from the friend circle it is also very good for wealth and children Mercury in 12th makes one talented and the expenses are also for the good deeds also, shows charity and donations and have a compassionate heart but it also shows some unnecessary struggles in his life but he is good for others Today we learnt about the remedies for weak Mercury in a chart and get beneficial results also, we learnt what results does Mercury gives in all the 12 houses Sir, we would like to know about results of Mercury being combust and retrograde in each house in our next video till then, thanks a lot for being on Saptarishis Astrology channel and sharing your knowledge with us.
