In Astrology, Mercury is the planet ruler of communication, speech, the mind, wisdom, knowledge, intelligence etc. Mercury is friends with the Sun and Venus. It is neutral with Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. It is opponent with the Earth’s moon. Though, Mercury is said to the offspring of Jupiter and the moon, according to an ancient legend.

It is believed that weak Mercury in a native’s chart can cause him-her to have skin, head or throat related problem. Astrology helps in nullifying any other malefic-negative effects of Mercury especially related to the mind; and it provides cures and remedies for this and any other problems, e.g., Buddh Mantra, the appropriate gemstone emerald called Panna, Yantra, Puja prayer ceremony etc.
A common Buddh Mantra is—
Om Bum Budhaya Namah
ऊँ बुं बुधाय नमः
