Mercury In Astrology


Mercury is the closest planet to the sun. It is small in mass and has weak gravitational force. Being close to sun makes it heated as well as cold. Hence the duality in nature. As Lord of Gemini Mercury is two faced – one being extremely independent and other extremely detached. Mercury is sexless neutral and cold planet.
