Budha or Mercury :

Budha was born out of union of planet Chandra and  Tara the wife of Deva Guru  Brihaspati.  As per mythology, planet Chandra abducted Tara and sought refuge in the Ashram of Shukracharya – the guru of Asuras. After all the gods appealed for the better judgement to planet Chandra he understood his mistake. A remorseful Chandra returned Tara to Brihaspati. Tara was carrying Chandra’s child. The child was duly delivered. The child was very beautiful. Tara had disclosed the paternity to Brihaspati who in a Brahmanical forgiving gesture accepted the inevitable.

▪ Budha rules over Mithuna and Kanya Rashis. It is deeply exalted at 15 degree Kanya and deeply debilitated at 15 degree Pisces. Its Mooltrikona sign is Kanya. It is the only planet finding exaltation in it’s own sign. (Kanya Rashi is ruled by Budha, all other planets are exalted in signs ruled by someone else – meaning the other planet but Budha is exalted in it’s own sign Kanya).


▪ Budha is the significator of speech.  Its complexion is akin to that of grass. The presiding deity being Vishnu and it is neuter  (neutral) in gender. That is why Budha is known as Napunsaka Graha.  It represents Earth as an element of Panchbhootas (five elements). It represents Vaishya Varna or Commercial Community. It has the predominance of Rajasika Gunas.


▪ Budha possesses an attractive physique and the ability to make speak words with good sense of humour. He has the blend of all three Bile, Phlegm and wind. Budha  is powerful in the eastern direction. Budha is friendly to Surya and Shukra. However Budha is inimical to Chandra and is Neutral to Mangal, Guru and Shani. Budha is neutral to both Rahu and Ketu.
