The planet Mercury is the ruling planet of two signs namely, Gemini and Virgo. Mercury is a very small planet and it moves around the zodiac so quickly. Sometimes it appears as though it is travelling backwards and this is called as Mercury Retrograde. Mercury rules over all sorts of communications and also plays dominance over organisational skills. Mercury is termed as a planet of cleverness, wit and intelligence. Mercury is considered a benefic planet but under some situations it may play a role of malefic planet.
A Strong Mercury denotes success in the fields of communication, commerce and trade. Mercury is a dual-natured planet. It is connected with logic and hence if your ruling planet is Mercury then you would excel in the field of research and analysis..
