Budha (mercury) presides over ‘Budh-war’ or Wednesday or Budhan. He is also the god of merchandise and protector of merchants. Budha is considered a benefic, unless he is joined with another malefic planet, in which case he becomes malefic also. Mercury rules over Mithuna (Gemini) and Kanya (Virgo), is exalted in Kanya and in his fall in Meena (Pisces). Budha is friendly with the Sun and Venus, hostile to the Moon and neutral towards the other planets. Budha represents intelligence, intellect, communication, analysis, the senses (especially the skin), science, mathematics, business, education and research. The written word and journeys of all types fall within his domain. Budha is lord of three nakshatras or lunar mansions: Ashlesha (Ayilyam), Jyeshtha (Kettai), and Revati
