When benefic in nature, retrograde Mercury in the second house of a horoscope can give very good results related to the professional sphere, marriage, overall financial status and many other spheres of native’s life. Here again, the types of benefits received and the amount of benefits received by different natives having such benefic placement in their horoscopes is different depending on the type and strength of this placement as well as depending on the overall tone of the horoscopes of these natives.

Some natives under this benefic influence can make good money, name and fame through the profession of singing provided the overall horoscope supports such professional gains. For example, if benefic retrograde Mercury is placed in the second house of a horoscope in the sign of Virgo and the overall horoscope is supportive, the native may have a talent for singing. If the same benefic placement is joined by benefic Venus in the second house of the same horoscope in the sign of Virgo, such talent of the native may convert into professional singing and such native may earn much money, success and fame through such singing profession. Similarly, if benefic retrograde Mercury is placed in second house of a horoscope in the sign of Libra, the native may become successful as a singer and he may achieve good amount of success through such singing. If benefic Moon is also placed in the second house of the same horoscope in the sign of Libra at the same time, such success and fame may increase many times and the native may become a very successful singer.

Some natives under the influence of benefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of their horoscopes may also become doctors, police officers, army officers, lawyers, people working with various financial institutions like banks, and many other types of professionals dealing in different professional spheres. For example, the presence of benefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of a horoscope in the sign of Taurus can make the native a doctor if benefic Rahu or benefic Mars is present in the sixth house of this horoscope and the same effect can be created also if benefic retrograde Mercury and benefic Mars are placed in the second house of a horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius. It should be noted that though these combinations have good chances of making the native a successful doctor, but the overall tone of the horoscope must be checked before reaching any conclusions.

Taking another example, the presence of benefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of a horoscope in the sign of Aries along with benefic Sun can make the native pursue a career in some kind of defense forces or in some kind of administrative services. On the other hand, the presence of benefic retrograde Mercury with benefic Jupiter in the same house and in the same sign of Aries can make the native pursue a profession in singing or in some financial line like a banker or someone working for some other type of government or non government financial institution. If fully benefic or even partially benefic Mars also joins the same combination in the second house of this horoscope, the combined effect of these three influences can make the native successful as a singer and the same combination can also make the native become a Judge in some court of law.

Whether such native will become a singer or a Judge depends on the rest of the horoscope. For example, the presence of benefic Moon in the eleventh house of the same horoscope can increase the chances of this native becoming a singer whereas the presence of benefic Moon in ninth or tenth house of the same horoscope can bend the native towards law and he may become a lawyer first and then a Judge soon after. Much changes as various combinations change in the horoscope and one placement whether benefic or malefic, strong or weak, can’t predict an entire sphere of a native’s life. Hence the overall tone of the horoscope is a very important aspect and it must be checked thoroughly before making any decisions.

Benefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of a horoscope can also bless the native with success through business and in fact this is one of the best things this placement can do to a native. Accordingly, many natives blessed by this placement are likely to engage in various types of businesses and they may make good, very good or great amount of money through such businesses depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes. For example, the presence of such benefic retrograde Mercury in the sign of Virgo can make the native earn good amount of success through business or through some independent practice. If this benefic placement is joined by benefic Sun in the same house in the sign of Virgo, such a native may own a small, big or very big shopping mall through which he may earn good amount of money. If at the same time, benefic Mars is placed in the eleventh house of the same horoscope or benefic Venus is placed in the twelfth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Cancer, such a native may own more than one shopping malls and he may earn very good amount of money through such shopping malls.

Looking at another example, the presence of benefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of a horoscope in the sign of Gemini can make the native become successful as some type of consultant, astrologer, electronic media reporter, singer, politician or some other type of professional. If this benefic influence is joined by benefic Jupiter in the same house in the sign of Gemini, the native may become a successful astrologer or some other type of consultant dealing in some supernatural or paranormal field and he may earn good amount of money and fame through such practice. However, if this benefic placement is joined by benefic Sun or benefic Saturn in the same house in the sign of Gemini, the native may earn good amount of success, fame, money and a position of power and authority through politics. Such a native generally starts steadily and he may not see big gains in the beginning of his political career but as he keeps investing more time and effort in this field, he may keep achieving success after success.

Similarly, the presence of benefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of a horoscope in the sign of Cancer can make the native pursue a career in some type of teaching or such native may choose to make a career in medical field. If this benefic influence is joined by benefic Sun in the same house in the sign of Cancer, the native may become a teacher in mathematics or science and he may also run his own coaching center where he provides guidance for these subjects. Such native may also become an engineer or a research analyst depending on the overall tone of his horoscope. Hence this benefic influence can bless the native with success through various types of professions depending on his overall horoscope.

Benefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of a horoscope can also bless the native with good results in his marriage and married life due to which many natives blessed by this good influence may witness good results through their marriages also. Some natives blessed by this placement may get married to someone rich and established due to which their financial as well as social status may see good, very good or great amount of rise after their marriages depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes. For example, the presence of benefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of the horoscope of a female in the sign of Aries can get her married to a rich and settled husband if the overall tone of her horoscope allows it. If the same benefic influence is joined by benefic Jupiter in the second house of the same horoscope in the sign of Aries, this female native may get married to someone very rich and she may enjoy many pleasures and good social status after her marriage.

Looking at one more variation of this placement, if such benefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries is joined by benefic Mars, such female native may herself achieve a post of power and authority in some private or government organization after her marriage and with the support of her husband. The same combination may get her settled in some foreign country also and such settlement primarily happens due to her husband hailing from a foreign country or he may choose to settle in some foreign country after marriage. If however, such benefic retrograde Mercury is joined by benefic Moon in the second house of the same horoscope in the sign of Aries, such female may get married to some movie star, politician, singer or some other type of celebrity and this marriage is likely to be a love marriage, if the overall horoscope of this female allows it.

On the other hand, malefic retrograde Mercury placed in the second house of a horoscope can cause many problems and troubles for the native in many spheres of his life and accordingly, different natives under this malefic influence may suffer from different problems depending on their overall horoscopes. Such bad influence may especially be very bad for the marriage aspect of the native and it can cause problems in the marriage and married life of the native. Some natives under this bad influence may not get married till late or very late in their lives whereas some other natives may have to face many problems through their marriages.

For example, the presence of malefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of a horoscope in the sign of Taurus may keep delaying the marriage of the native under its influence and such a native may get married late or very late in his life. If this placement is strong and there are some other negative signs in the horoscope, like malefic Saturn or malefic Ketu is placed in the seventh house of the horoscope at the same time, such native may not be able to get married throughout his life until there are some other very good yogas supporting marriage in his horoscope. For example, the presence of benefic Venus and benefic Rahu or the presence of benefic Venus and benefic Moon in the fourth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Cancer can still get the native married despite the native suffering from the already mentioned bad combinations.

Taking another example, the presence of malefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of a horoscope in the sign of Cancer may not delay the marriage of the native and such a native may get married at a proper age if the overall horoscope allows it. However, such malefic influence may start troubling the native once he is married and accordingly such native may start facing many problems in his married life. Such problems usually appear in the form of arguments and differences of opinion between the native and his wife soon after the marriage and these disagreements keep increasing in number as well as in frequency and quantum. In cases where this malefic influence is strong and it is supported by some other malefic influences, it can easily break one or even two marriages of the native under its influence. For example, a combination of malefic retrograde Mercury and malefic Rahu or Ketu in the second house of a horoscope in the sign of Cancer can easily break on or even two marriages of the native under its influence unless there are some marriage saving factors in the horoscope.

Malefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of a horoscope can also cause problems related to the professional sphere of the native and accordingly, many natives suffering from this placement are likely to face different types of problems related to their professions depending on the type and strength of this placement as well as depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes. Some natives suffering from this placement may not get professionally established till late or very late in their lives on account of one reason or the other whereas some other natives suffering from this malefic placement may not get jobs according to their qualifications and they may have to settle for low paying jobs. Some of these natives may have to settle for low or very low paying jobs despite having good academic qualifications.

For example, the presence of malefic retrograde Mercury in the second house of a horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius can make it difficult for the native to earn his livelihood and such a native may not see good financial gains despite working very hard for a long period of time. This situation can become even worse if this malefic placement is joined by malefic Ketu as the combination of both these planets in the second house of a horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius can make it very difficult for the native to even make his ends meet through his own profession, unless there is some other very good yoga present in the horoscope of the native. For example, if in the same horoscope, benefic Jupiter is present in the fifth house of the horoscope and benefic Sun is present in the third house of the horoscope, the same native may achieve good amount of professional success in many professional spheres and the already discussed malefic placement can turn into a blessing in this case.

The readers should understand that the malefic combination of retrograde mercury and malefic Ketu mentioned in this example is a very difficult combination to handle for most natives and accordingly they are not able to channelize the energy generated by this combination due to which they suffer. On the other hand, the presence of benefic Jupiter in the fifth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Pisces and the presence of benefic Sun in the third house of the same horoscope in the sign of Capricorn can bless the native with sufficient strength through which the native may channelize and profit from even this type of difficult energy. A horoscope is all about its overall theme and nothing can be judged from a combination of two or even three planets in some particular house and sign of a horoscope.
