When showing retrograde in a horoscope, Mercury can cause various types of positive or negative results for the native depending on its working nature, strength, level of activity and some other factors. The natives having retrograde Mercury in their horoscopes may experience different type of results depending on the placement of retrograde Mercury in various houses of their horoscopes. The scope of a planet to cause various effects in any house of a horoscope is vast and it can’t be contained in some words but I’ll still mention some commonly occurring positive and negative effects of Mercury when retrograde and placed in various houses of a horoscope.

Retrograde Mercury in 1st House : Benefic retrograde Mercury placed in the first house of a horoscope can render many types of benefits to the native and accordingly the natives benefitting from this positive placement may witness good results in the sphere of health, marriage, profession, education and many other spheres of their lives. Like always, the types of benefits received by different natives and the quantum of benefits received by different natives depend on the type and strength of this benefic placement as well as on the overall tone of horoscopes of these natives.

Some natives under this benefic influence may start receiving good results related to their education right from their early childhood, which means that these natives start understanding various topics with ease due to which they perform better at studies. If the overall tone of the horoscope is good and this placement is strong, the native under this benefic influence may achieve very good amount of success in his higher studies and he may also achieve professional success through such studies. For example, the presence of benefic retrograde Mercury in the first house of a horoscope in the sign of Gemini or Leo can bless the native with high or very high class academic education and such native may receive good professional benefits through such education. If such benefic retrograde Mercury is joined by benefic Mars or benefic Rahu, such benefits may increase further and such native may earn good name through studies and he may also get selected in some very good services related to government, by virtue of his studies.

For example, some natives having benefic retrograde Mercury in the first house in the sign of Leo can enter into some exams for civil services and some of them may get selected as police or administrative officers. If the same placement is joined by benefic Mars in the first house of a horoscope in the sign of Leo, such native may not only be selected for one of these services, but he may also obtain a very good rank in his batch, provided the overall tone of the horoscope supports it. The above mentioned combination is a powerful combination and it can render a post of high class power and authority to the native under its influence provided there are no other strong malefic combinations in the horoscope, which can spoil the benefic results indicated by this yoga.

For example, the presence of Sun in the twelfth house of the same horoscope in the sign of cancer along with malefic Rahu or Ketu can devoid the native of such success, though the yoga formed by benefic retrograde Mercury and benefic Mars in the first house of his horoscope strongly supports such success. This is due to the reason that though the first influence is very strong but the lord of ascendant is strongly afflicted and the house of placement is also not favorable for such jobs. Hence it should be noted carefully that no single combination however strong can promise a good or bad results with certainty and the overall tone of the horoscope must be checked before predicting anything.

Benefic retrograde Mercury in the first house of a horoscope can also bless the native with success in many other professions due to which the natives under such benefic influence may become successful in a wide variety of professional spheres. Some of these natives may succeed as print or electronic news reporters and journalists, lawyers, doctors, consultants, sportsmen dealing in various types of sports, movie stars, movie directors, movie producers, politicians, astrologers, judges, engineers, IT professionals, financial consultants and analysts, businessmen dealing in various types of businesses and many other types of professionals. The professional scope covered by this benefic placement is very wide and it can bless the native with success in almost any type of professional sphere depending on its nature and strength, as well as depending on the overall tone of the horoscope of the native in question.

Apart from this, benefic retrograde Mercury in the first house of a horoscope can also bless the native with good results related to his marriage and married life and accordingly, the natives blessed by this placement are likely to have better marriages provided the overall horoscope allows it. Such benefic retrograde Mercury in the horoscope of a female in particular can bless her with very good results through marriage and such a female may get married to a very good, caring, successful and rich husband depending on her overall horoscope. For example, the presence of such benefic retrograde Mercury in the sign of Libra in the first house of a horoscope can bless a female native with a good marriage and if such benefic retrograde Mercury is joined by benefic Mars in the first house, the combined effect of these benefic influences can result in this female getting married to some very rich, famous and established man who cares a lot for her and who keeps her happy.

The fortune of such a female may witness a complete turnover in a positive way, by virtue of her marriage, which means that even a very poor girl blessed with this combination may get married to a very rich person. Such is the beauty of this combination of benefic retrograde Mercury and benefic Manglik Yoga forming Mars in the first house of the horoscope of a female. This combination makes sure that the female native under such influence is blessed with many pleasures after her marriage even if she leads an average life before marriage. This is due to the fact that this combination indicates good luck through her husband and as this female gets married, her fortune rises.

On the other hand, malefic retrograde Mercury in the first house of a horoscope can cause problems in many spheres of a native’s life due to which different natives suffering from this bad influence may witness problems and troubles in various spheres of their lives. As this malefic placement is bad for professional success, some natives suffering from this placement may experience problems in their professional spheres. Some of these natives may not get professionally established till late or very late in their lives whereas some other natives may have to remain jobless for long periods of time, every now and then. In extreme cases, when such malefic influence is strong and the overall horoscope is also not supportive, the native suffering from this bad influence may not be able to have a proper profession throughout his life.

Malefic retrograde Mercury in the first house can also trouble the native with losses through business due to which some natives having their own businesses may have to face big or very big losses through their businesses depending on their overall horoscopes. When such malefic influence is strong and the overall horoscope is also negative, the native under such bad influence may have to face a complete failure or shutdown of his business at a point in time and he may also have to face huge financial debts or even a bankruptcy by virtue of such complete loss of his business. For example, the presence of malefic retrograde Mercury in the first house of a horoscope along with malefic Mars or malefic Ketu or with both of them in the sign of Aries can make the native face complete loss of his business unit through a fire accident which may destroy his business unit completely, if there is no support elsewhere from the horoscope.

Malefic retrograde Mercury in the first house of a horoscope can also cause problems in marriage and married life of the native due to which some natives under this malefic influence may get married late or very late in their lives whereas some other natives under this bad influence may have to face many problems after they get married. Such malefic influence is especially very good at creating tensions by virtue of differences of opinion between the native and his wife and sometime this difference can be so big that the native and his wife may think almost the opposite of each other in most circumstances. Accordingly, the native suffering from such malefic influence may have to face a broken marriage which may come after a history of arguments, disagreements and verbal fights between the native and his wife.

In some extreme cases when joined by some other malefic planets, such malefic influence can break more than one marriage of the native under its bad effect. For example, the presence of such malefic retrograde Mercury in the first house of a horoscope along with malefic Mars in the sign of Gemini can break more than one marriage of such native after causing many problems in his marriage. Similar effect can be witnessed by the presence of malefic retrograde Mercury in the first house of a horoscope along with malefic Venus in the sign of Pisces as this malefic placement is also capable of breaking more than one marriage of the native under the combined effect of such malefic planets.

Apart from this, malefic retrograde Mercury in the first house of a horoscope can trouble the native with health related issues due to which different natives suffering from this malefic placement may have to suffer on account of different health related problems. For example, the natives having malefic retrograde Mercury in the first house of their horoscopes in the sign of Scorpio may have to face health related issues but such issues or diseases are usually not fatal and they are managed in most cases, after causing financial expenses to the native as well as after causing some routine tensions to the native. It means that such a native may have to spend good amount of money towards the treatment of a disease through a surgery or through some other means which requires him to spend good amount of money but which gets cured after such treatment.

On the other hand, the presence of such malefic retrograde Mercury in the sign of Capricorn in the first house of a horoscope can trouble the native with serious health related issues or diseases and such diseases are not likely to be cured for a long period of time or for entire life of the native. Such native keeps spending money on such diseases, he keeps suffering pains through such diseases and he may finally have to lose his life to such diseases. This situation can become even worse if such malefic retrograde Mercury in the first house of a horoscope in the sign of Capricorn is joined by malefic Sun in the same house as such combination can trouble the native with some of the most serious type of diseases and such a native may have to undergo multiple surgeries towards the treatment of such diseases which may still not be cured or even treated properly.

Such a malefic combination can still spare the native under its influence if there is some other life saving combination in the horoscope of the native. For example, the presence of benefic Saturn and benefic Venus in the eleventh house in the sign of Scorpio, in the horoscope of the native suffering from such malefic combination may reduce the amount of damage done by the first combination to a great extent as this benefic combination may provide speedy recovery and cure for some of the diseases indicated by the first combination. On the other hand, the presence of malefic Rahu in sixth or eighth house of the same horoscope can worsen the problems for the native and he may have to suffer even more through such diseases. The overall theme of a horoscope is a very important aspect and no concrete predictions should be made before analyzing the entire horoscope properly.
