As per Vedic Astrology, Mercury is the offspring of Moon and Jupiter, hence it incorporates the characteristics of both of these planets. Known to be the signifier of one’s communication abilities, analytical skills, intellect, intuitions and inner voices.
The friendly planets of Mercury are Venus, Sun, and Rahu. Mercury is neutral with all other planets and has a bit of animosity towards Moon.
