Mercury Retrograde in Gemini - 30 July 2019
According to the Vedic Astrology, Mercury is the representative planet of knowledge, intellect, business and speech. It governs the Gemini and Virgo zodiac signs, out of which, Virgo is its exalted sign, whereas Pisces is its debilitated sign. One of the standout facts about this planet is that Virgo is both its exalted sign as well as Mool Trikona sign. Also, it rules over Ashlesha, Jyeshta and Revathi Nakshatra. Amongst the Navagrahas or Nine Planets, Mercury is hailed as the Prince and acts as a “Learner” all the time, i.e. it remains under the learning phase like a Prince. As a result, it makes the native curious to learn about new things. Also, it provides results according to its placement with other planets, i.e. if it is posited or in conjunction with auspicious planets, then it offers positive outcomes and negative in case of inauspicious planets.
It remains strong during the day and night and is responsible for generating air-borne, bile and cough related diseases. With this planet in retrogression, natives experience a delay in their tasks and have to work harder to gain success. But a retrograde Mercury also delivers favourable results in many aspects such as business and speech. Any planet remains active during its Maha Dasha (major period), Antar Dasha (sub period ) and Pratyantar Dasha(sub sub period) and if it receives a favorable transit, then fulfilling results come forward.
