Exalted Mercury in Third House

When exalted Mercury is placed in the third house in a horoscope, Cancer rises in the ascendant. Exalted Mercury is malefic in the third 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 third 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 third house when it is benefic.

If Saturn is placed in the third house in Virgo with Sun and Mercury, benefic Rahu is placed in the first house in Cancer with Venus, and Ketu is placed in the seventh house in Capricorn with Moon, the equation may become better. In this case, the native may work as a lead heroine in mainstream movies and she may come across very good amount of success, money, fame and recognition. She may have a large number of fans and she may be very popular. If the finer factors and running times are supportive, she may earn billions through movies and advertisements.

Taking another example, suppose exalted Mercury is placed in the third house of a horoscope in Virgo along with benefic debilitated Venus. Benefic Sun is placed in the second house in Leo, Jupiter is placed in the fourth house in Libra and benefic Moon is placed in the tenth house in Aries. In this case, the native may go abroad on the basis of his profession, marriage or parents and he may settle there permanently, if his overall horoscope is supportive.

The native may be a software developer or an IT professional, he may settle abroad and he may witness good amount of success, money and recognition in a foreign country.

On the other hand, malefic exalted Mercury in the third house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to profession, finances, reputation, status, siblings, colleagues and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.

Some natives under the effect of this malefic influence may not be able to find permanent or stable professions till late in their lives whereas some other natives may not find jobs suitable according to their academic qualifications or according to some other abilities or talents that they may possess.

Some other natives may keep losing their jobs or they may witness professional failures, despite their best efforts to perform well. Taking an example, suppose malefic exalted Mercury is placed in the third house of a horoscope in Virgo with debilitated Venus. Malefic debilitated Saturn is placed in the tenth house in Aries, debilitated Sun is placed in the fourth house in Libra and Moon is placed in the sixth house in Sagittarius. In this case, the native may not find a permanent job till the age of 35 or 40, and he may keep changing jobs.

If Jupiter as well as Mars is placed in the tenth house in Aries with debilitated Saturn, Rahu is placed in the twelfth house in Gemini and malefic Ketu is placed in the sixth house in Sagittarius with Moon, the equation may become worse. In this case, the native may not find a permanent job throughout his life.

Even when the running times are supportive for profession, the native may not sustain a job for more than 3 years.
