Mercury in Twelve Houses
Based on Chamatkaar Chintamani
1st house – in ascendant Mercury kills misfortunes created by many malefics (Venus and Jupiter also does this in ascending order Mercury kills 100’s of evil influences in lagna, Venus kills 1000’s of evil influences in lagna and Jupiter kills lacks of evil influences in lagna) his intellect is best (Best amongst all of his kinsmen) he earns by writing, body is divine like gold, have knowledge of medicines, but his own diseases gets cured after lots of difficulties.
2nd house – native is intelligent, in social gatherings he is like Vyas (Sage who wrote Mahabharata – poetically indicating his intellectual capabilities that can even satisfies large groups of people) like Kalpavriksha (a tree said to be born in heaven) is generous he is generous like that (means extremely generous like gods) this is said by Pundit’s (Learned men) if he enjoys sometimes he is understood like honey bee (means people think he is enjoying but is not in control of enjoyment/senses) but it indicates that he is into enjoying life (by various means of women, wine and other things considered into Rajas)
3rd house – friend of businessmen, earn his livelihood from business, his mind is under control of bad men (he can get influenced by bad people and can work based on their desire as few businessman did in past or usually do in Bollywood movies) he enjoys a lot (Means he is slave of his senses) or in other cases resort to renunciation (here careful analysis must be done as 3rd house is house of Kama and Mercury is form of Vishnu thus is a well position it can make someone like Krishna who enjoy senses but is internally detached) he is surrounded with brothers (endowed with brothers) and is like tree (give shelter and food to everyone coming to him – charitable disposition)
4th house – his friends are handsome/beautiful. He is special person of king (Government) or writer (he can be highly posited in government job or can have government job like clerk but is liked by everyone in his office or is government writer – one whom government appoints to write things or honors his writings – once again a big yoga written between lines) other people writes what he tell them to write (highly posted government officer) he doesn’t gets money of his father.
5th house – in first stage he never gets male child (first progeny /elder is daughter) his mind (Ideas) are capable of producing money. He knows many kinds of activities (Yantra, Mantra and Tantra along with many methodology on how to get your work done by other people in modern sense like brokers, middlemen etc) this is what learned men say
6th house – people oppose him. His intellect is to control enemies (don’t want to fight but bribe them) control air (desirous of having more and more control over people) spends money in good deeds. Money making from self effort is his nature.
7th house – gives comfort of wife (again a combinations ensuring marriage) in copulation he is of less sperm (in copulation while ejaculation he discharges little sperm that may look nothing important but when we keep the fact in mind that Mercury is a neutral planet and being in 7th house of marriage can give his tendencies to this house we come to know that mercury in 7th house gives less sperm that in those match making where spouses chart have low fertility can prove disastrous of having children, thus in these kinds of charts matching making should be done very carefully with an special eye to sexual matching. For example Husband having Mercury in 7th hose and Wife’s Kshetra Sphuta is in odd sign and even Navamsa can give delayed children or problem in begetting children whereas perfect match would be one where wife’s Kshetra Sphuta falls in even sign as well as Navamsa. These things should be analyzed very carefully and minutely) like the sun who haven’t set his body shines (means lustrous and attractive body – especially when he is in own sign that makes Bhadra Yoga and gives handsome physique) none can equate him in property (people in world can but none in his family can, also indicates that he loves property and rather than spending or storing they love to keep properties equal to their monetary status)
8th house – natives age is 100 years (this yoga gives long life is an indication don’t take these type of poetical examples literally) gets money from Government (Government employee or working with government) and also gets income from sales (successful shopkeepers and salesman are indicated) enjoys with women (extra marital Yoga) loved by women (gets contact with women low in moral character or due to his personality women gets attracted towards him is indicated that must be ascertained from influences on lagna)
9th house – native is extremely intelligent, is initiated (into a religious sect – most probably Krishna consciousness or other Vaishnava Traditions as Mercury signifies Shri Maha Vishnu) bathes in Ganges (takes holy pilgrimages) lights his lineage like Sun (Is highly posited and prominent in his complete lineage between all members of his family) he is more splendorous than kings (Jaimini also says Mercury in 2nd from Arudh Lagna makes one king of huge lands – Strong Mercury gives strong Raajyoga and here this state’s strong and flawless mercury that rarely comes to be seen makes one a prominent person in society like someone working in CAG department of government or someone working for NGO – power to questions government) suppressed evil people (religiously disposed)
10th house – native speaks less, but not less gains endowed with high gains, by authority of government and punishment he gives punishment and exercise mercy like King (Government –Yogas for big NGO’s and other like institutions, can also show working as foreign minister as they have equal rights as government for countries they represent. Or people like highly posited police people who exercise lot of power and authority) he is worth worshipping (man with godly qualities) gets property of his father
11th house – if mercury is not in 11th house native don’t acquires gains (Native have lot of gains) body isn’t beautiful (Native is endower of bodily beauty and luster) never lives without debt (under debt) where to give money in daughters marriage (earlier it was said gains will be there but now says how will he give money in daughters marriage and then in between it was said about debts means person earns well but his expenses or plans are high to execute them he takes debt and is troubles as they need to be paid one day and when needed money isn’t available to him) but how Brahmins (learned man) stop craving from him (means in eyes of society he is always having money and learned people expect him to give some donations for good deeds whereas his real financial conditions have been described just now)
12th house – if Mercury is not in 12th house then how can Brahmins (Learned men) come to home (means his home is full with learned men – he himself is learned and well read) how enemies will be frightened of him in fight (means enemies will always be frightened to fight him) who is such a evil who can enjoy gold (means although he is evil he enjoys gold and good company – that comes with gold)
