Mercury Mahadasha With Mars Antardasha

Mercury is the closest planet to the sun. We come in a line with Mercury on our errands around the sun. That is the time when it sends it’s powerful energy to Earth and casts the Mercury Mahadasha on earthly lives for 17 years. The vibrations from Mercury are mostly positive but it may have some adverse effects when a Rahu or Ketu dominates it.

Mercury Mahadasha

Mercury is a volatile planet. It signifies intelligence, knowledge, trade and commerce, science and research, mathematics and mental power, etc. Therefore, under Mercury, you will excel in any of these fields. It also sharpens your memory, while a Mercury in a house is not favourable as it can lead to problems in marriage, education, speech or relationship.

Therefore, it can be both malefic and beneficial according to its position and strength in a birth chart.
