Mercury is nothing just your intelligence. This is another form of Rahu; like Rahu is the negative side of the mind and Mercury is the positive application of mind. In our mind where the memory is stored, there is a fluid called grey matter, this represents mercury in astrology. The grey matter includes regions of the brain involved in muscle control, and sensory perception such as seeing and hearing, memory, emotions, speech, decision making, and self-control. The anterior grey column contains motor neurons. By the time when a baby in mother’s womb, developing embryo has formed a neural groove, which is the foundation for the brain structure. By the time baby is born, her brain will have over 100 billion neurons. This is the first thing made by God in the human body. Because after the completion of mind, mind gives the order to the the the now head now make hands etc.
Our great Sages says mercury is neither good nor the bad as it is neutral. The reason because of saying this mercury which is your mind adopt the things from where and with whom it sits in your birth chart. Like your mind acts like people with whom you spend most of your time. If they are good your mind will try to do good and if they are bad then your mind adopt the bad things and start doing bad too. The critical situation arises when mercury sits alone in the birth chart. There is no influence of any benefit or maleic planet then it might be good but most of the time it is bad like when you are alone your tendency to think negative things more rather than positive. The only people able to think positive who do meditation when they are alone but for common people, most of them think negative thoughts when they are alone with no outside effects. Because only the sages at that time can able to do meditation when they are alone.

Those who know calculations, only able to predict. The sun is the main planet which is your soul in astrology, after that the mercury which is your mind/intelligence in astrology. This is the reason that you will find mercury with sun or either next one house or back one house in the birth chart. As our Hinduism believe that the things you use more than necessary or misuse, you will lack in next birth. The people who don’t have intelligence means they use so much mind in their previous birth that’s why they are lacking in this birth. So after body, the mind is the most important thing for human. The moon which is your mood in astrology is the mother of mercury. Out of your (moon)mood, what you are able to achieve is mercury the intelligence.
Mercury is the significator of 4th house and 10th house. These two houses need the application of mind only, to open those and get the benefits. The 4th house represents study, 10th house represents your work. Mercury exalted in 6th house of kalapurusha kundali. 6th house is the house of disease, debt, and enemy. Without application of mind, it is impossible to get rid of these three that’s why mercury exalted here as maximum power of mercury is using a native. Mercury is debilitated in 12th house which is a house of expenditure as people never use their mind while shopping. Only mercury is the only planet which simultaneously retrogrades and combust at the same time. The people having mercury retrograde and combust both at their birth chart, they are the genius person.mercury is combust in many birth chart but hardly you find mercury is in motion in the birth chart.
To know how intelligent your life partner is looking at your birth chart, From your Sun if the mercury is ahead or behead? If it is ahead then your partner is more intelligent and if it is beheaded then you are intelligent than your life partner. That means you go ahead(sun) and your mind(mercury) will support you always. Means always thinking first then take any action which is a very good sign. If mercury is ahead and the sun is beheaded then you act then you think what I did? Am I did something wrong? This person first takes action or speak something and then think. If mercury is combust you spoil your life due to your wrong decisions. When mercury is combust people take designs then think it may be wrong and decisions go in reverse. When mercury is in motion, you need to apply your mind only when it is necessary. When mercury is retrograde, you apply your mind everywhere even people don’t ask you and you still give the reply like why you shouldn’t do this? you should do this etc. Without asking suggestions people tend to give their opinion about everything. Whenever they do not require giving their opinion still they give when their mercury is retrograde and people don’t like that and start criticising them. Even some people try to give me suggestions on my astrology posts that I should learn astronomy instead of astrology without even asking them for their opinion😃 I think they also have mercury retrograde in their birth chart. Mercury is the base root of astrology. When Mercury and Jupiter are in a triangle with each other people become a good astrologer. Because you need a calculation with intellectual mean.
