  • Mercury in 5th House

Mercury in the fifth house provides formal education and sound learning to the natives. They have sharp mind and logical leaning. They believe in rational approach towards learning. Their view is that things should not be learned just for the sake of learning but with interest. For them, education is a tool of flowering as a human being; and without education and learning, one remains as good as an animal. They consider life and the world as a laboratory where you have to perform various tests to reach at some logical conclusion. They observe things, look for logic behind everything, ask questions and are not satisfied till they get appropriate answers.
