Can 4th lord Mercury in 7th house make you an architect? Pisces Ascendant (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: 4th lord in 7th house: You are here
It could actually make you an architect when 4th lord Mercury is placed in the 7th house in the sign of Virgo as 7th house is 4th from the 4th house and so it is the higher self of the 4th house which means nurturing (as 4th house is nurturing) others with something related to home but since Mercury is in Virgo it shows Mercury is doing something complicated and an architect has to make designs and models of buildings in a piece of paper and that is a very complicated thing to do. This is more so possible(being an architect) if Saturn is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 5th house, Moon is placed in the sign of Leo in the 6th house, and Rahu is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 4th house. But Mercury must be placed in the sign of Virgo in the Chitra Nakshatra and not the Hasta Nakshatra.
The deity ruling the Chitra Nakshatra is Vishwakarma who is known as the Devashilpi or the architect of Gods. This gives a clear indication that this Nakshatra is all about building and designing homes and other structures. Since 4th house also represents the vehicles so you could also be an automobile engineer if Mercury is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 6th house and Saturn is placed in the sign of Libra in the 8th house. 8th house is the house which is ruled by Mars and Mars represents engineering and Saturn is a mechanic.
With this placement (Mercury in 7th house), there could also be a lot of arguments in the married life (with your spouse) and these arguments could be due to your mother or related to your conveniences as 4th house represents your mother and also conveniences (Sukh Suvidhaye) of life. This also shows you could be in a home (such as real estate) or home products related business, where you have to do a lot of negotiations and arguments with the customers as the sign of Virgo, is of arguments and 7th house is the house of business (trade) and negotiations.
Arguments in the business are more so possible if your Mercury falls in the sign of Virgo in the Hasta Nakshatra as this nakshatra is more about business dealings as Moon rules this house. Another Nakshatra that falls on the sign of Virgo is Chitra and if your Mercury falls on this nakshatra then it could make you an artist or maybe an accountant depending on which Pada of the Nakshatra your Mercury fall in. This is because 4th house is also the house of nurturing and since the sign of Gemini rules the 4th house it shows the nurturing is either through communication or writing or drawing.
7th house is actually a very creative house as it is the Swadisthana Chakra of the human subtle system and Swadisthna Chakra is ruled by Brahma and Saraswati and Brahma is the creator of the universe and so it is a very creative house. Saraswati is known for education and music and dance and so you will be very good at resolving problems in your studies (related to different subjects such as maths, physics, chemistry, etc) when Mercury is placed in its own sign in the 7th house along with Sun and if Rahu is placed in the sign of Leo in the 6th house.
If 5th house lord Moon is also placed along with Mercury in the above combination then it could also make you a teacher of children as 5th house is of children and its lord Moon in the 7th house along with Mercury makes arguments with the children. But the 5th house is also the house of creativity and games and this placement can also make you creative in arts and also you can play a lot of mind games or maybe you are a video games developer yourself.
Rahu in the 6th house in the sign of Leo makes you obsessed about resolving problems of studies especially if Sun (the lord of Leo) is placed in the sign of Virgo along with Mercury. Rahu does very well in the 6th house irrespective of the sign falling on the 6th house but it makes you work hard or force you to do detail-oriented work and resolve complicated problems as 6th house is the house of obstacles and problems. When you develop video games using different programming languages then it is a very complicated job to do and so Mercury and Moon are needed in the sign of Virgo.
If your Mercury is placed in the sign of Virgo in the Hasta Nakshatra in the 7th house then you could make you very creative with your hands as "Hasta" means hands. This could make you very good at arts and crafts. This is more so possible if 5th house lord Moon is also placed along with Mercury in the 7th house and Rahu is posited in the 5th house.
You should check carefully (in your Vedic astrology software) which exact Nakshatra and its Pada (there are 4 Padas in each Nakshatra) your Mercury is falling in the sign of Virgo in the 7th house and that will throw more light what results be produced by Mercury in this house.
