Mercury, the planet closest to the Sun, is considered to be the Prince of the Navagraha, as per astrology. The significator of business, speech, education, and more, this is considered to be a neutral planet. That is because whichever planet Mercury conjuncts with, it offers results according to the same. If Budh is posited beneficially in one’s birth chart, that provides the native logical insight, a better understanding of mathematical subjects, and makes them an exceptional business person. On the flip side, a malefic Mercury in one’s kundli causes skin-related diseases, and such a person is unable to express themselves clearly.

As Mercury transit in Leo takes place, the planet will influence each sign differently. Let us take a look at how the dualistic planet will change your life.
