Transit of Mercury

Mercury takes around 12 months to complete one circle of the zodiac and it spends up to 30 days in each sign, depending upon whether its movement is direct or retrograde. Mercury gives positive results if placed in 2nd, 4th, 6th, , 8th, 10th and  11th  house from where Moon is posited at the time of birth. At rest of the places, i.e., 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, and 12th house from Moon, it can bring some negative impact too. Here is a detailed overview of how Mercury transit may affect your life based on which house it transits to from the natal Moon.
