Mercury: Significance in Astrology

Mercury is neither masculine nor feminine, since he can be both in conjunction with any planet. In conjunction with the masculine planet, he becomes masculine, with the feminine, feminine; but by its very nature it is cold and dry and therefore melancholic. With good planets he is good, with evil planets he is evil. He controls mental work, tricks, jokes, deceptions, etc. 

Mercury is the prince. He is not mature enough. He is very fickle. He tends to copy the planet he is with. The results given by mercury are difficult to predict. 

In a horoscope, Mercury is always found close to sun (with the sun or one rashi before or after the sun). Mercury is the karaka for communication. Retrograde mercury creates communication problems. Salesmen, Good Orators have well placed mercury.
