MERCURY AFFLICTED

I have mercury in the 7th house in aries together with sun and mars. What are the normal effects of this? The reason I ask is because mercury is about commnuication and sometimes I find it difficult to communicate verbally - sometimes the words just dont come out right! I also find my memory is not great. Maybe my mercury is afflicted - what sort of remedies can be done to raise mercury?

I look forward to peoples suggestions

  • hey..ya that could be one of the reasons but then again that could not be the only reason...one needs to read your entire chart ..your ascendant the status of other planets etc..for example an aries ascendant usually speaks what is on his or her mind and is not very diplomatic..then again this a very wide generalisation..similary by just knowin that your mercury is afflicted one cannot say that your communication is screwed up..therefore your entire chart needs to be studied
    • thank you for replying and showing interest. I would be happy for you to consider my chart. 21 april 1983 born at 9:45pm england, birmingham UK
      • your sun and saturn both are exalted..people with strong sun and/or saturn in any case dont speak much..they are the quiet variety and tend to think a lot..your second house is occupied by jupiter and is aspected by venus..so that should make your a good advisor..yes i know its in scorpio rashi but still the effects of jupiter in second house will be there...yes your mercury is afflicted so again that supports it too..what you can do is dont try to be witty and respond quickly..think before you speak always..
        • Yes i think thats right. I tend to think a lot and dont speak much but sometimes this is not helpful in some situations.
          • I have also heard that meditating on the 3rd eye chakra improves memory. Some people say that chakra is ruled by Jup. I tend to believe its Saturn. But still worth trying.

            Cheers

    Dear brother tajeshwar,

    I will be soon posting a topic that may shed some light to what you are experiencing.
    I have the similar problem.
    At any rate, I would need sometime to organize my thoughts, so it may take awhile.
    In the mean time, please drink a lot of water, eat well, sleep well, and breath deeply.

    Blessings to you dear brother,
    Hikaru

  • generally speaking mercury is with 2 malefics, both very strong - sun exalted and mars in his own house. you don't give degrees, but he may be flanked by these 2 malefics. Both are also not friends to mercury.

    these reasons alone may give the communication issues. we still don't know the other factors - condition of 2nd house (which rules oral communication), its ruler's condition, etc.
    • thank you hikaru and marcia. Hikaru I will continue to take deep breath and keep hydrated throughout the day. Today was very difficult for me though. We had a meeting at work - and i just could not gather my thoughts and communicate effectively as I wanted to. Its getting me frustrated too.

      Marica, my 2nd house has retro jupiter in it in the sign scorpio.

      The fact that Mercury's ruler Mars is in its own mulatrikona sign would actually strengthen Mercury, not weaken it. But being with Sun & Mars and ruled by an enemy is definitely an affliction to Mercury.

      Mars is actually a neutral planet to Mercury, but when they are in the same sign it becomes an enemy.

      Is Mercury combust or retrograde? That will make a difference. Maybe I should read more of the other posts...

  • Mercury is your atmakarka placed in marnkarka sthana along with sun and mars.. Basically we see second bhava for speech ability and karka is mercury the lord and karka i.e mars and mercry relation ship not good booth are placed in maran karka sthana.. second from mercry can show what can make you speak ..........shukra exalted there show that you need to be happy and fresh all this time and try to maintain physical attractivenessas this is your lgna loard ... this can make you speak good ........... as far as your memory is consrnd the karka for memory is Jupiter and which can deblited the Jupiter is satrun the relation ship between booth of them are not good in your chart and the antra dasa of satrun is going on which is making you forget easily.. to remove this just have blessing of your guru.. nad do parnayama and medidation..
    i hope this will help you

    Hello...I havent done out your chart but Mercury isnt the only thing to do with memory...the 5th house means abstract mind and memory!
  • Unsu...
     
    Okay now I've done your chart...Your mercury is not combust but you may very well have difficulty speaking because Mars and the Sun heats up Mercury which is already a very hot planet and thus this causes things like difficulity focusing. Your mind is alright apart from difficulity focusing.

    Dont wear emeradle...Mercury rules the 12th...so...All I can say to you to help you is calm your mind...Meditating will be very usefull for you it will help a lot. Although I think you'll have difficulty finding a Guru to teach you because you have Rahu in the 9th and with Saturn in the 1st will cause delays in this area....But keep trying!

    Best of luck ^_^

      opps I forgot....you may also have trouble speaking from your bad Jupiter in the 2nd....Guru/Jupiter is in enemy (far from combust but still bad) dignity and the second house rules speach. Guru is in badish dignity because its too far from the sun.

    Thankx for the mail m8! And as far as it goes with communication there isnt much more to say other than you may be a great leader because Mars is strong and owns your 2nd house, its conjunct with Mercury which also sules speach and aspects your 1st house as does the sun which brings power...soo.....you could be a great commander but mostly a war commander/leader. Saturn however may try and delay or stop this but if you had the determination you could do I think.

    I have similar problem with my mercury in 7th house but in Cancer, house of Moon. Also Ket is in third place. Sometimes my words will be disspelled . Any one have better idea about the third house and mercury ?
