Exalted Mercury in Eighth House

When exalted Mercury is placed in the eighth house in a horoscope, Aquarius rises in the ascendant. Exalted Mercury is malefic in the eighth house in many cases though it may turn benefic in some cases. This may happen when Mercury is influenced by benefic planets, such as through conjunction and/or aspects. As the number of benefic planets and the strengths of such planets increase, Mercury may become more benefic.

If exalted Mercury is influenced by two or more than two benefic planets in the eighth house, it may turn significantly or highly benefic. Apart from that, the overall theme of horoscope having such exalted Mercury can also turn it benefic in some cases, when such theme is highly benefic. The concept of malefic planets turning benefic due to influences of benefic planets has been explained in Manglik Dosh section of the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh (Revised Edition)’.

Let’s look at some results which may be given by exalted Mercury in the eighth house when it is benefic. Such benefic exalted Mercury can bless the native with good results related to health, lifespan, children, creativity, spiritual growth, profession, finances and several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope.

Taking another example, suppose benefic exalted Mercury is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope in Virgo. Benefic Mars is placed in the third house in Aries, benefic Venus is placed in the fifth house in Gemini, Saturn is placed in the twelfth house in Capricorn, Moon is placed in the eleventh house in Sagittarius and benefic Jupiter is placed in the seventh house in Leo. In this case, the native may join the army. He may get selected for a high rank in the army and he may witness good amount of success, recognition and authority as an army officer.

If benefic Sun is placed in the seventh house in Leo with Jupiter, Rahu is placed in the eighth house with Mercury, and Ketu is placed in the second house in Pisces, the equation may become better. In this case, the native may get selected for the highest possible direct rank in the army, by virtue of achieving success in competitive exams. The native may enjoy very good amount of success, authority and recognition as an army officer. He may lead some important missions, some of which may be on foreign soils and he may achieve success in them. The native may achieve a lot during his career and he may receive formal awards for bravery and leadership.

Considering another example, suppose exalted Mercury is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope in Virgo. Benefic Sun is placed in the seventh house in Leo, benefic Venus is placed in the ninth house in Libra, Moon is placed in the third house in Aries, Rahu is placed in the tenth house in Scorpio and Ketu is placed in the fourth house in Taurus. In this case, the native may engage in politics. He may become a politician and he may witness good amount of success, recognition and authority over the years.

If Saturn is placed in the eleventh house in Sagittarius, exalted Jupiter is placed in the sixth house in Cancer, and Mars is placed in the tenth house in Scorpio with Rahu, the equation may become better. In this case, the native may engage in politics from early age, he may build his career over the years and he may witness very good amount of success, authority, recognition and fame as a politician. The native may come across good results after the age of 40, better results after the age of 50 and best results after the age of 60. If the finer factors and running times are supportive, the native may serve as a minister in national government.

Apart from these, benefic exalted Mercury in the eighth house of horoscope can bless the native with several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope.

On the other hand, malefic exalted Mercury in the eighth house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to health, lifespan, love life, children, spiritual growth, profession, finances, reputation and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope. Looking at the sphere of children, such malefic exalted Mercury can cause delay in childbirth and/or it can cause various other types of problems related to children, depending on the overall horoscope of the native. Such malefic exalted Mercury can prove more troublesome for female natives.

Taking an example for a female native, suppose malefic exalted Mercury is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope in Virgo along with debilitated Venus as well as Sun. In this case, the native may suffer from delay in childbirth, miscarriages and/or other types of complications, depending on her overall horoscope.

Looking at a probability, suppose malefic debilitated Moon is placed in the tenth house in Scorpio along with Saturn, debilitated Jupiter is placed in the twelfth house in Capricorn and Mars is placed in the second house in Pisces. In this case, the native may not deliver her first alive child till the age of 40 or she may not deliver throughout her life, depending on her overall horoscope, finer factors and running times.

Looking at another probability, suppose the recent placements of Moon, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter are annulled. Moon is placed in the second house in Pisces and Mars is placed in the fifth house in Gemini. In this case, the native may witness one or two miscarriages before she may deliver an alive child. If malefic Rahu is placed in the fifth house in Gemini with Mars, and Ketu is placed in the eleventh house in Sagittarius, the equation may become worse. In this case, the native may witness two, three or more miscarriages throughout her life though she may deliver one or two alive children also.

Such malefic exalted Mercury can also trouble the native with various types of problem related to profession. Taking an example, suppose malefic exalted Mercury is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope in Virgo along with debilitated Venus. Debilitated Sun is placed in the ninth house in Libra, Saturn is placed in the tenth house in Scorpio and debilitated Mars is placed in the sixth house in Cancer. In this case, the native may not find permanent profession till the age of 30 or 35, depending on his overall horoscope. He may only find temporary jobs and he may also remain jobless for periods of more than 6 months, many times in his life.

If malefic Moon as well as malefic Ketu is placed in the sixth house with Mars, and malefic Rahu is placed in the twelfth house in Capricorn, the equation may become worse. In this case, the native may not find permanent profession throughout his life. He may remain jobless for periods of more than one year, many times in his life. If the rest of his horoscope, finer factors and running times are also negative, the native may remain jobless for most of his life. He may face financial tightness, debts and bad reputation among other problems.

Apart from these, malefic exalted Mercury in the eighth house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
