Who is Mercury?

The Messenger In Orbit

A small planet, closest to the sun, Mercury travels with or near the Sun, so in a person’s chart Mercury is often in the sign of the Sun or flanking it. This can bring brilliance, or it can make Mercury combust, indicating “burnt out.”

Working With Mercury

Cultivate a relationship with Mercury with the mantra:
OM Bum Budhaya Namaha!

Mercury’s color is green, and his day is Wednesday.

The primary gem for Mercury is Emerald, to be worn on the riing or little finger of the right or left hand. Peridot, jade, green zircon or tournmaline can also be worn, best on a necklace.  

*Wearing gems should be avoided unless you are sure it is beneficial for you (requiring a Mercury, Venus or Saturn ruled Lagna, and Mercury must not be in, or rule, the 6th, 8th, 12th houses).

Herbs: Nervines like Brahmi, Gotu Kola, Bhringaraj, Passion flower, Skullcap, also Tulsi, Chamomile and Mint.

Peering Into The Stars


I’m still reveling in the joy of my Jyotish session with you – it was very illuminating, inspiring and reassuring. Thank you so much!


“Radiant Energy”

You have such warmth, wisdom and a radiant energy, it’s so joyful and contagious.



Laura’s poetic way of explaining ‘the mystery’ blew my mind, like a conversation with my very essence. Thank you Laura, your gift is divine!


“Oh my god”

“It was like she was looking into my soul. It was truly beautiful, my heart was bursting with love and gratitude to be alive.”
