Retrograde Mercury transit in Libra - 7 November, 2019
While providing information about various planets, Vedic astrology states that Mercury is the significator of intelligence and business. It also rules over our speech. Talking about zodiac signs, it can be seen that it is the ruling lord of the signs, Gemini and Cancer. Along with this, Virgo is its Mool Trikon as well as exalted sign. Pisces happens to be its debilitated zodiac sign. Amongst the Nakshatras, Ashlesha, Jyestha, and Revati are also ruled by the planet Mercury.
The princely planet occupies the first position in the solar system. It has an equal amount of control over the fiery, aery, and cold nature, i.e. the three elements of Ayurveda. When it remains weak in one’s Kundali, then the person suffers from diseases which are related to the aforementioned three. Since the planet has attained the status of a prince, it is inquisitive in nature and also possesses a desire to attain knowledge. This is the reason why this neutral planet procures positive results while it remains in the company of a beneficial planet and negative results come forward when it gets placed with a malefic planet. An individual becomes the beholder of a sharp intellect and memory power when he/she receives the blessings of Mercury.
It remains strong all throughout the day and night and provides beneficial results during its major period (maha dasha) in a complacent manner. The Mercury retrograde is always considered to be a special event in the realm of astrology. When the significator of speech and communication moves in a retrograde motion, natives indulge in fights with each other without any particular reason and often also experiences hurdles in accomplishing tasks which are associated with it. If this planet is strong in your kundli, then the retrograde Mercury usually proves to be quite beneficial for the native, however, in the case of the opposite scenario being true, the effects of this retrograde lessens to a certain level.
