Mercury is nearest to the Sun. In Vedic Astrology this is called Budh which means cleverness. This planet represents the qualities of intelligence, wit and humor in a person. Mercury is considered a benefic planet but under some situations it may play a role of malefic planet. Mercury placed in 6th, 8th or 12th houses fails to deliver good results. The same is the result when Mercury is the lord of 6th, 8th or 12th houses in a horoscope.

Mercury is the planet of communication and it represents the fields related to commerce, trade, accounts, banking, and computers. A Strong Mercury denotes success in these fields. People with Mercury in strong position in their chart have sharp thinking but inborn anxiety and indecisiveness also.

Mercury is dual natured planet and governs two zodiac signs namely Gemini and Virgo. Body parts that are ruled by Mercury are the arms, ear, lungs and nervous system.

Mercury believes in logic. People with strong Mercury in their horoscopes possess the excellence of reasoning and analytic ability. Researchers also have strong Mercury in their natal chart.

Telephone and Telegraph controls means of communication too; therefore Mercury also governs the work related to telephone, telegraphs, e-mails, couriers and post etc. Therefore well-placed, strong mercury is usually seen in horoscopes of writers, astrologers, mathematician, engineer, dealers, brokers, businessmen (a person with Mercury in strong position in their chart is undeniably charming and shrewd), and media persons. Mercury also develops verbal communication and hand skills. Hence many lecturers, artists, sculptors and salesmen are also the result of well-placed mercury. Summary in tabular form:
