Ruling Planet mercury Personality

Mercury or Budha is at an average distance of 36 million kilometers from the Sun. At the Apogee, the distance is about 43 million miles and at the perigee it is about 29 million miles from the Sun. It revolves round the Sun in 88 days. Its diameter is nearly 3,200 miles. As the size of Mercury is very small and its mass is very little its gravitational pull is naturally very weak.

There is no atmosphere around it since it is very close to the Sun. Further, one half of Mercury is very hot and the temperature would be around 360 degrees centigrade; the other half is very cold, much cooler than our arctic region during severe winter. The time of rotation and revolution is the same therefore, only one part of Mercury will face the Sun and other part will always remain dark with temperatures below freezing point.


Mercury was born out of association of Moon and Tara the wife of Brihaspati, the Deva Guru. The story is that Moon abducted Tara and took refuse in the Ashram of Shukracharya - the guru of Asuras. After all the gods appealed for the better judgement to Moon he understood his mistake. A remorseful moon returned Tara to Brihaspati. Tara was carrying Moon's child. The child was duly delivered. The child was very beautiful. Tara had disclosed the paternity to Brihaspati who in a Brahmanical forgiving gesture accepted the inevitable.

In Greek Mythology Mercury is considered to be the son of Jupiter and Maia, the daughter of Atlas. He is said to be a friend of Apollo, maybe since it is closest to the Sun.
