Significance of Mercury and Remedies

According to Indian Astrology, Mercury is the messenger between God and man. Mercury is referred to as Budh or Buddhi karaka. Mercury is the planet of intelligence and the IQ of a person depends on the strength of Mercury in the horoscope. The planet of Mercury represents logic, calculation and mathematics in astrological parlance. Mercury is in charge of trade commerce, sports, cinema and other artistic pursuits. Your speech patterns, communication style, sense of humor, quickness of thought etc depends on the position of Mercury in the Horoscope. Mercury owns the Zodiac Signs of Gemini and Virgo. The sign of exaltation of Mercury is Virgo and the sign of debilitation of Mercury is Pisces.

When associated benefic planets mercury give honest ways and ideas of making money or increasing wealth. On the other hand if associated with malefic planets it produces some one who makes money through wrong ways like gambling, stealing, cheating etc. Qualities of good communication, intelligence, rationality, wit, shrewdness, judgment and flexibility are seen when Mercury is well placed. If Mercury is badly placed in the Horoscope Chart, then that person could get health problems like gastric problems, psychic diseases, insomnia, nervous breakdown, skin diseases, loss of memory or speech, deafness, asthma etc. In astrology, the planet of Mercury is also the natural signification of education, successful relationships, artistic talents and wealth, among other things. Budh mahadasha lasts for 17 years.

As a God, Budh is the most intelligent of all. He is a Vaishya by caste and has four arms and his vehicle is lion. He is the son of Som (Moon) and Tara. He is extremely learned and has a bright appearance. Saturn and Venus are his friends and Jupiter and Moon are enemies. Wednesday is the day of Budh and the emerald is his Gemstone. Given below are the Budh Remedies and Mantras.
