  5. Mercury in Scorpio: 3...




For the last two months, Mercury, the planet of effective communication and business savvy has been traveling through Virgo and Libra, two favorable signs of the zodiac.

In Vedic astrology, Mercury will move to Scorpio—a deeply emotional sign of Mars—on November 1 to stay for an extra lengthy period for better or worse.

In fact, Mercury will remain in Scorpio until January 6, which is a long time for this fast planet.

One of the beauties of Vedic astrology is that it gives you a better understanding of the subtle forces that make up your consciousness. More importantly, it gifts you help, blessings and benefits.

So to experience more ease and prosperity from your work, marketing, public relations and business, here for you—three easy steps to get immense benefits during this long transit. You’ll learn how to make your holiday season happier, enjoy your time with others and grow your wealth.

1. Easy does it

From the first of November through the 29th, Mars and Mercury will exchange signs. This is a lucky combination and amazing celestial help. In fact, you’ll receive the best results from the planet of strength and action, Mars, and the planet of fabulous communication, Mercury.

Your PR campaigns will bring helpful coverage in the media. Your marketing campaigns will increase your revenue and reach more prospective customers.

The Rishi Parashara called Mercury “Kumar” or Prince. Thanks to its great flexibility and changeable nature, Mercury is a truly easy-going planet that rules the earth element.

It can bring you pleasant times with loved ones or associates and even produce massive wealth.

Yet Mercury’s changeability and neutrality are both a strength and a liability, because Mercury’s pleasure seeking can lead to cheating or worse: malefic results, depending on its placement in the zodiac, its planetary associations and its tendency to disregard ethics.

Mercury belongs to the commercial community and is fond of jokes, said Parashara. Mercury’s discrimination can make an accurate assessment of potential gains and pleasure. It can also quickly identify what is useless for business and best discarded.

After November 29, the effects of Mercury in Scorpio will bring a need for more discrimination to avoid spoiling a relationship or a business deal.

So for best results at work, in relationship and business you’ll need some guidance.

Try this

  • Stay alert and calmly make your point in a presentation.
  • In Scorpio, Mercury will acquire passion—a foreign quality for this neutral planet. Avoid overly emotional speech.
  • Ban anger, jealousy, passive aggressiveness and vengeful strategies.
  • Dr. Pillai advises to repeat the Vedic mantra or sound ‘Rama’ to defuse tension and negativity. This will protect you and can also uproot negative emotions.
  • Use your renewed passion to do more research and carefully evaluate new avenues of profit.
  • You can benefit from deals in real estate.
  • Further your technical training to stay up-to-date with the markets. This will increase your income.
  • Receiving loans and favors from financial institutions will be easier.
  • Gifts from your in-laws will make you happy.
  • To prosper and keep a good reputation, always make honesty and ethics your priorities.

2. Happiness from the stars

Mercury will cross three constellations in Scorpio:

  • Vishaka
  • Anuradha
  • Jyeshta

In the next two months, you can check the “Chart of Now” on the AstroVed homepage to find out in which constellation Mercury is placed. You’ll then gain even more insights on the results of Mercury in Scorpio.

Vishaka is a four-star cluster ruled by the benevolent planet of wisdom and wealth, Jupiter, and two powerful archetypes—Indra, the king of the Gods, and Agni, the celestial being of sacred fire.

  • Mercury here gives you a jolt of refreshing energy, higher intelligence and a humanistic approach to your writings and public speaking.
  • Ruling Jupiter can give Mercury the capacity to bring abundance and prosperity.
  • Avoid harsh and aggressive speech and try diplomacy.

Anuradha is a constellation of Saturn ruled by Mitra, the celestial archetype of friendship. This star can bring great wealth.




Warren Buffet, the American billionaire and humanitarian, has the Moon placed in Anuradha.

  • Strategize to gain from your work and investments.
  • To increase productivity, focus on cooperation and perseverance.
  • Trust your intuition.
  • Avoid frustration.
  • Listening to music will remove stress.

Jyeshta can help you deepen your communication and brings you a brilliant capacity to collaborate with others. This is Mercury’s own star that improves your skills in all things Mercury.

  • Focus on effective communication to improve all your relationships.
  • Avoid revenge and irritation.
  • For best results, share your great ideas gently.
  • Enjoy great results from marketing and drawing.
  • You’ll get more creativity to identify new sources of income.

3. Celestial technology for success

Vedic astrology identifies the archetypes Vishnu and Lakshmi as the premier benevolent beings to fix your finances.

Invoking Lakshmi and Vishnu through a Fire Lab (or fire ritual) is believed to be a fast path to wealth miracles.
