Exalted Mercury in First House

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

If exalted Mercury is afflicted by two or more than two malefic planets in the first house, it may turn significantly or highly malefic. Apart from that, the overall theme of horoscope having such exalted Mercury can also turn it malefic in some cases, when such theme is highly malefic.
