Mercury – I wonder what it wants to know
Rimzim Bhargava (Pune, India)
And I lifted my pen to write again. Hey, who did this?? Mercury, yes the most curious planet, gives the ability to write, communicate. It is planet of learnings, Intelligence and Logical thinking. Though it is considered the smallest planet in today’s era but can bring biggest changes in its Mahadasha/Main period in life.
It is also nearest to the sun, sometimes It is so much near that it becomes combust and retrograde at the same time. This is the reason why in most of the horoscopes Mercury and Sun are either placed in one house or just next to each other.
Now you must be curious to know why mercury has been tagged as the most curious planet in Vedic astrology. Because this planet is also the karaka of learnings so whosoever is under the influence of this planet will be always curious to know and learn more and more.
Infect mercury plays a very important in completing one’s education during his/her lifetime and with all these qualities, It has been considered as one of the most benefic planet in Vedic astrology next to Jupiter and Venus.

Mercury – Atmakaraka Planet
Can you even imagine, this childish, smallest planet can become your atmakaraka Grah? The Planet holding the highest degree as per, Chapter 1 in Jaimini Sutras is called Atmakaraka Grah.
आत्मादिकःकलादिभिर्न भोगः सप्तनामष्टानांव

Think if you have Mercury as atmakaraka in your horoscope, your whole life will revolve around your learnings, communications, and curiosity. A Person will be bestowed with more of mercury qualities. I would like to name such planets as the planet of transformation. A person and his life is transformed from good to better. But one has pay the cost and go through rough journeys. A person with an Atmakaraka Mercury may also be interested in dance, yoga, newspapers, magazines, television etc. Caring for in laws, relatives, and friends can bring good luck and fortune. People with an Atmakaraka Mercury receive good luck if they change their name.
My experience with Mercury as Atmakaraka Planet
Learning and exploring became the important part of my life during this Dasha. Communications started playing major role in both professional and personal life, and lastly, being an atmakaraka planet, I experienced the major transformations in life every now and then during its Dasha.
And This is why I really came to know what it wants to know.
