Mercury (Budh) transits Makara (Capricorn) to Kumbha (Aquarius) – 15 February 2018
The 15th of February 2018, Thursday, marks the transit of planet Mercury (Greh Budh) from Makara (Capricorn) to Kumbha (Aquarius).
Mercury (Budh) is the closest planet to the Sun in our solar system. Mercury is the smallest planet. Mercury takes about 59 Earth days (~2 months) to make rotation (spin) on its axis as compared to Earth’s ~24 hours. Mercury takes about 88 Earth days (~3 months) to make one complete revolution around the Sun; which is the fastest amongst all the planets as Mercury’s orbit track around the Sun is the shortest. The distance between the Sun and Mercury is 57.91 million kms.
In Astrology, friendly celestial bodies to Mercury are the Sun (Surya), Venus (Shukr) and Rahu (aspect);
Neutral to Mercury are Mars (Mangal), Jupiter (Brahspati or Guru) and Saturn (Shani);
While, the opponent is the Earth’s moon (Chandra).
The ruling planets of Aquarius (Kumbha) are regarded as the Saturn (Shani) (Vedic Astrology) and Uranus (Western Astrology).
Since Mercury (Budh) is neutral with Saturn (Shani), the Aquarian natives generally will not be so influenced, with virtually no negative impact, with the transit of Mercury to Aquarius (Kumbha) in the period – 15th of February 2018 to the 3rd of March 2018. The Aquarian natives may feel stronger with the qualities of Mercury, such as, sharper memory, enhanced speech-writing-communication, skill, intellect etc.
