Among the nine planets, Budhan Baghawan worshipped in Thiruvenkadu Temple will give bliss. Mercury protects Shiva Bakthas and literary persons. He is green in complexion, soft in nature. He bestows Lord Shiva devotees with the knowledge in Astrology, Sculpture, and Medical treatment of paralysis. He also grants power of expression and success in education, literary pursuits, fame in fine arts, and profession and good relations with scholars. Wednesday is the day to worship him offering green colour items and he likes white kanthal.
Evil effects by Mercury are usually failure in business, set back in profession, lack of mental calibre, and transfer from native place, getting caught in quarrels.
