As the world grows, so is communication. In many countries earlier, people use to send messages through horses, birds, messengers and through telegrams. As the world moved ahead, we post letters through Post Offices and Couriers. Today in this high communication small world, we do not have to post letters, as it’s just a ‘click’ away from the other person. With social media, emails and other electronic forms of messages, we not only send our thoughts in seconds but also speak to the individual live!

What an innovation boom, where we can speak and see another person through social media in just a ‘click’! In astrology all sorts of communication are due to the astrological planet Mercury. That’s why people having an excellent Mercury position in the Lagna chart are great Orators. We just listen to these speakers and feel like as if the communication should go on and on…

Mercury is the fastest planet in the solar system and moves in greater speed than any other planets and hence the natives with well placed Mercury can think fast and make indelible work for society through their great ideas. Mercury is the smallest and innermost planet in the Solar System. Its orbital period around the Sun of 87.97 days and is the shortest of all the planets in the Solar System. Mercury, the messenger of the Gods is named after a Roman Deity. Mercury orbits the Sun within Earth’s orbit and never exceeds 28 degree away from the planet Sun. When viewed from Earth, this proximity to the Sun means the planet can only be seen near the western or eastern horizon during the early evening or early morning.

Mercury represents many sectors starting from Trade, Communication, Intellect and all forms of write-ups etc, but the most important thing that this planet represents is about Clue’s to one’s problems. A well-placed Mercury will provide one with the necessary types of intellect through which one gets over situations and that’s where one comes out in flying color. Mercury provides sudden ideas based on which one moves ahead in life. Suppose you are into a job for many years and struggling to make a mark and suddenly, one moment, you find that an idea that made you think differently, helped you to do things unique and thus move ahead in life. Well, to my experience there can be two planets attached in such types of phenomena i.e. planet Uranus and Rahu. These planets provide sudden thoughts which leads to great innovations.

But there is a difference between the thoughts shared by Planet Rahu and Planet Uranus with that of Planet Mercury. The basic difference lies in the fact that Planet Mercury may provide Ideas which can make you get success in your daily life, either in your career or business, but Planet Rahu produces a thought, which changes the world and so is with Uranus. Hence, Planet Mercury plays a very important role in one’s life as it’s the giver of IDEAS and intelligence. It shows the way forward in difficult times. There are many humans whose Planet Mercury is not in good position and struggles to get more of life, even if they may have the best education, qualification and schooling. If you have to move ahead in life, strengthen your planet Mercury in the basic horoscope chart. These can be done by loving environment, the greenery, connecting yourself with Nature, breathing in pure air (by that I mean, Air free from pollution), Understanding your connect with this Mother Earth etc.

Planet Mercury plays a very important part in one’s life as it rules the nervous system. Hence by strengthening one’s Mercury one can also strengthen ones decision making process and thus move ahead in life. Thank you for taking your time and reading this article.
