Sign In

Planet Mercury is known as Budh Graha in Hinduism. Its transit between different zodiac signs is a very major event in Indian astrology. 

Astrology confirms that the movement of planet Mercury between zodiac signs – the planet closest to the Sun – brings a lot of change in the life of a person. It is the planet of intellect and intelligence; hence, it affects students as much as professionals.

Legends of Planet Mercury in Astrology

According to Hindu mythology and Vedas, Planet Jupiter (Guru Graha) had a wife, Devi Tara. She was a rare beauty. Chandra Dev (the Moon) got attracted to her and casted a spell on her. Bewitched under the spell, Devi Tara and the Moon consummated. The illegitimate child that was born as a result of the affair was Planet Mercury. There’s another popular legend that many astrologers still believe in. According to Indian mythology, Planet Jupiter once took the form of a very attractive woman. The planet Moon got obsessed with the female form of planet Jupiter. As a result of the affair, Moon had an illegitimate son, Mercury. Planet Mercury, which was born to an extramarital affair, shares a conflicting relationship with Jupiter. Planet Jupiter considers Mercury as an enemy, but Mercury has neutral feelings for Jupiter.

Planet Mercury bears animosity with the Planet Moon due to the stigma of being an illegitimate son of the Planet Moon.

Significance of Planet Mercury in Astrology

Planet Mercury, according to Vedic astrology, is the ruling planet of the 3rd and the 6th House. It is, thus, the ruling planet of the Gemini zodiac sign and the Virgo zodiac sign. If Mercury is a beneficiary planet, it improves the communication skills of the natives and makes them successful, rich, and lucky. However, if afflicted or weak, Mercury makes the natives lazy and cunning. Such people also suffer from depression and stress.

Meaning of Mercury Transit

When planet Mercury passes from one zodiac sign to the other while the Earth is in transit between the Sun and the Planet Mercury itself, this period is known as Mercury Transit.
