What if 4th lord Mercury is in 7th house for a Gemini Ascendant?
Home : Vedic Astrology: 4th lord in 7th house: You are here
There are actually three Nakshatras falling in the sign of Sagittarius and those are Mula, Purva Ashadha and Uttara Ashadha and there are 4 Padas in each Nakshatra. So your Mercury will fall in any of these 3 Nakshatras in a particular Pada when Mercury is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 7th house. You can check in your astrological software which Pada and Nakshatra your Mercury is posited and that will give a better idea about what results Mercury is going to produce for you.
Mula Nakshatra is ruled by Ketu and Ketu is the significator of the 8th house of research and investigation. Mula Nakshatra is all about going to the roots of something. For example, if a murder happened secretly (8th house) then it is the duty of the police department to go into the deep investigation to find out how it all happened and who was responsible for it. Similarly, if a bomb blast occurred then all the great research and investigation is done to find out the culprits. This is what it means when we say going to the roots of something. These were only examples and we need to go to the roots to find different mysterious of life, nature, and events. And Mula Nakshatra is all about going to the roots and find the truth as the sign of Sagittarius represents the truth as it is ruled by Jupiter.
Even when we study, for example when we study physics, we need to go the roots, for example, how a motor works and it takes a lot of efforts to understand all the concepts behind the working of a motor. Same is the case when we study other subjects too. Even in sports, some people go into deep research to find out which is the weakest and strongest player in the opposite team and how to tackle them. So, going to the roots could be anything where research and investigation is required to find the truth or solution to a problem.
Now when Mercury is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the Mula Nakshatra in the 7th house then you could even be a teacher of subjects like biology, physics, chemistry, botany, etc. or you could be someone who writes a lot on these subjects over the internet or in some magazine or newspaper. This is because all these subjects are about going into the roots of nature (such as plants and animals) and Mercury is communication and also writing. Since Mercury also rules your first house, your life's purpose becomes also going to the roots of everything as the Ascendant lord tells the purpose of life. But nothing can be ascertained about the career unless the position of all the planets in the birth chart is known. But if Jupiter and Sun are also seated along with Mercury in the 7th house then the teaching career as mentioned is possible.
Since the sign of Sagittarius also represents law and religion you may also be a public speaker on religion. You see those Muslim people who speak all the mantras and prayers (Namaj) in the loudspeaker to worship God those kinds of people usually have this kind of placement of Mercury in the sign of Sagittarius.
You could also be a priest in a temple or any other place of worship with this placement of Mercury but only if Mercury is placed in the Purva Ashadha Nakshatra and not Mula. You could also be a marriage priest. You see those people in India who are specialists in reading mantras to help with the marriage are strongly seen from this placement of Mercury in the 7th house as 7th house is also of marriage in Vedic Astrology.
Also, those people who are engaged in buying and selling of religious and educational books on different subjects are also seen from this placement of Mercury especially if Saturn is also placed in the 7th house along with Mercury as Saturn is a trader and significator of 7th house. You could also be a professor of philosophy with this placement of Mercury as the sign of Sagittarius also represents philosophy.
There are also people who speak from behind the scenes for various documentary films on wildlife animals and plants and such people usually have their Mercury placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 7th house. This is because the sign of Sagittarius represents the nature and all that exists in nature such as plants, animals, etc.
Since the sign of Sagittarius also represents the law so a divorce lawyer is strongly seen from this kind of placement of Mercury in the 6th house for a Gemini Ascendant but other planets in the birth chart should also be supportive for this to happen.
Journalists and News Anchors are also strongly seen from this placement of Mercury because their job is to expose the truth via media about all that is happening around the world. For this, Mercury must be placed in the Mula Nakshatra in the 7th house as Mula is all about exposing the truth.
Also, many people are running their own youtube channel and they are also exposing the hidden secrets of unknown places and unknown things by making videos and presenting it to the masses via the internet. Such people also come under this placement of Mercury as the job of Jupiter (ruler of Sagittarius) is to take out all the hidden secrets and expose the truth. You could also be an announcer in trains and flights or railway stations and airports.
Sports commentators are also strongly seen from this placement of Mercury provided other planets in the birth chart are supportive. However, a businessman can also be seen from this placement who communicate via phone or chat and gives information on what has been manufactured or produced for their customers.
