Indicators Of Weak Budh

   Mercury is the Prince among the nine planets in Vedic Astrology. Obviously a Prince is royalty, articulate, aristocratic and has a feeling of superiority over others. If a person can talk his way out of troubles, make money by convincing others and have an informed opinion on range of topics then he is sure to have a good Mercury.

   But there are times when Mercury is considered weak in a horoscope. Below are the list of points where a weak Mercury maybe influencing the native.

  1. When a person suffers from defective speech. For example he stammers or lisps or has other speech-defects.
  2. Native has some sort of neurological disorder that affects his/her regular day-to-day activities.
  3. When there is incomplete education or when area of work is totally unrelated to the educational qualifications.
  4. Mercury is also associated with youth. If someone ages earlier then normal then his/her Mercury could be problematic. Ageing earlier then normal can also be associated with Saturn also and it is not always fault of Mercury.
  5. Those having Skin Problems like Acne, Uneven skin tone and other troubles could have a weak Mercury.
  6. A state of Cognitive Dissonance where more then two opposite beliefs are rampant in native's mind could be due to weak Mercury. This in turn cause acute mental stress to the native.
  7. Communication Failures and frequently getting problems with getting ones point across is also due to weak Mercury
  8. If you know how to read horoscope then association of Mercury's with Moon, Rahu or Ketu is also a sign of being in weak condition.

Spiritual Remedies For Mercury

   Natives with weak Mercury should pray to Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu is Shant Akaram Bhujag Shayanam (शान्ताकारं भुजगशयनं) meaning one who can be calm even while resting on a Serpent. A native with weak Mercury does excessive thinking and body along with sensory inputs can't keep up. Praying to Vishnu embed the qualities of Vishnu like calm nature and beautiful persona into the natives.. Chanting the Vishnu Sahasranaam is ideal. If Vishnu Sahasranaam is too hard then natives can also chant "Om Namah Bhagvate Vasudev". This simple mantra is enough for natives with weak Mercury. Don't count number of times you speak this mantra. Just recite it slowly with humming effect. and the sound waves associated with humming effect would help calm nerves. There is absolutely no need for any special havans, gemstone or poojas to aid a weak Mercury.

If you still feel like wearing a gemstone then a green emerald is advised. Do the mantra remedy to strengthen the gemstone yourself. It is foolish to think that someone else does the mantra remedy and you get the fruits of his/her hard work.

The great sage Ved Vyas composed the Budh Japa Mantra which can also aid a weak Mercury.

Please refer to a health digest to know more about benefits of Mung Bean. The scope of this website and article is limited to astrology and remedies for planets. Natives with weak Mercury often suffer from indigestion and they should try and drink sufficient quantity of water in the morning.

Donation Items For Mercury

Natives with weak Mercury should give green clothes to poor people. Maternal Uncle's and Aunt's should be treated with dignity and respect. Also treating young children nicely and giving them gifts would help strengthen the weak Mercury.

Mercury is young and impressionable planet. It takes in all the qualities both good and bad of its co-tenant just like a young child takes in everything good and bad from his surroundings. In similar manner the natives with weak Mercury should learn to stop giving unnecessary advice and start adapting positive qualities of others around. A weak Mercury would stop giving bad results if native stays in constant learning mode instead of lecturing mode.
