  2. Jupiter governs the realm of abstract thinking. Mercury relates to more concrete side of it. It represents mental energy. It governs quick grasp of thought, writing, education, rapid exchange of information, publishing, journalism and calculation.
  3. Since Mercury relates to pre-adolescent period of life after infancy, any affliction to it can lead to illnesses during this period, or an unhappy childhood.
  4. Since Mercury is the significator of trade and since money is an essential part of trade, Mercury represents acquisition, accumulation and expenditure of money.
