Mercury

In astrological parlance Mercury has been understood as an externally vari- able, vacillating, convertible, neutral and dualistic planet. Mercury reflects the mentality of an individual, governs the reaction to our senses and impres- sions and rules over the central nervous system. As an intellectual planet it represents intelligence, genius, analytic power and reproductibility.

Mercury is the smallest planet of the solar system. The author of Lal Kitab 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 mischie- vous 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 Pukka 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.
