Know The Impact Of Mercury Combust On Your Life From Best Astrologers On Call

Mercury is the smallest as well as the fastest moving planet of our solar system and according to Vedic Astrology, the planet Mercury is considered as a prince, a young beautiful boy with intelligence, reasoning ability and good communication skills. Mercury is the planet that represents our intelligence, memory, and learning ability. It controls our reflexes, nervous system, flexibility, speech, language communication (written or verbal) and anything related to numbers.

In simple words, we can say that the combustion of a planet is a situation that is said to be caused when a planet comes within certain degrees of closeness to the Sun. This planet loses some of its strength by virtue of being too close to the Sun and is called a combust planet.

Mercury Combust in Capricorn: Timing

On 17th January 2022, Retrograde Mercury is going to be combust in Capricorn at 19:07 and will come out of combustion on 29th January 2022. This situation of being retrograde and combusting at the same time can happen only with two planets, i.e. Mercury and Venus because they are the inner planets of the solar system.

The retrograde motion of a planet is an apparent change in the movement of the planet through the sky. It is not a real phenomenon, i.e. the planet does not start moving backwards physically in its orbit. It just appears to do so because of the relative positions of the particular planet and Earth. But in Vedic Astrology, it holds huge importance and majorly impacts people's lives also.

So Mercury being retrograde and combusting at the same time holds importance in Vedic Astrology. The Karak tatva of Mercury gets affected, which can give rise to certain unfavourable situations such as conflict and confusion in communication, misinterpreted or morally wrong speech by important people, a lot of hustle in the media, sudden ups and downs in the share market, lots of hindrance in business, and many more. For the natives, the impact of the transit will depend upon the placement of Mercury in the natal chart and the dasha.
