Mercury, Messenger of the gods, in Astrology/Zodiac
The ability to comprehend and process information into decisive conclusion is also given by Mercury. An afflicted Mercury or a debilitated Mercury will cause lack of intelligence, poor decision making, harsh speech and restlessness. A powerful Mercury is also responsible for good business or a finance career.
There can be very rare exceptions though. For example, a person who has a badly placed Mercury may still find success as a business man. In that case, it is possible that some other planet is super strong in his chart e. Barring these rare exceptions, in general cases, if Mercury is not placed well in a birth chart, there will be problems related to trade, decision making, finance, intellect and overall intelligence of a person. Before you get busy finding out the position of Mercury in your birth chart, here are a few things to note.
Mercury is the only planet which is exalted in the very house where he is the owner.
This is the only exception wherein a planet which is the owner of a house is also exalted in that very house. The above chart is the birth chart of famous actor Amitabh Bachhan.

Look at the chart on the left hand side. And hence this position of Exalted Mercury is extremely powerful here. In this chart, Mercury is again in the house with the number 6 which means, Mercury is in the house of Virgo and hence Exalted. Also, note that this Mercury is placed in the 10th house from Ascendant.
Not only that, this Mercury is sitting with the lord of 9th and lord of 10th in the 10th house itself the house of work and career. The house of Virgo primarily represents Logic and practical thoughts. Virgo does not care about creativity and imagination, Virgo is all about being practical. Virgo is a sharp critique and also an unbiased judge.
I asked Michelle Nichols, the director of public observing at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, what effect Mercury being in retrograde has on our daily lives. Other planets in the solar system have no effect on our planet. Everything is just too far away. Nichols said our awareness is simply heightened when we know Mercury is in retrograde.
There's no link between, say, fighting with your partner and the movement of the solar system. Shelley Ackerman, a board member at the International Society for Astrological Research , thinks otherwise. She directed me to a book that cites Mercury as the "communication planet," influencing organizing, perception, learning, and health as well. But Ackerman said Mercury retrograde isn't an inherently negative event.
It's a time to slow down and review different aspects of your life, Ackerman said — you'll only run into trouble if you're rushing and speeding ahead. Ackerman noted that at least one-fifth of the population is born during Mercury retrograde. Mercury gives the native a green tint and native is full of veins. Native is pleasant in speech and fun loving. Native has long and red eyes and has well formed limbs.
It makes the body tall and slender. Native is of average height with eyebrows curved with much hair.
