Let’s look at important things here –
Jupiter - It is the most benefic planet and it represents all the auspicious things like Knowledge, Wisdom, Law, Guru, Spirituality, Religion, Philosophy, Literature, Elderly People and Children etc. For a girl, Jupiter also represents Husband.
Punarvasu - It is a nakshatra of rehabilitation and recovery process. It is very closely connected with after-care medical activities. It can also be a nakshatra of counselling. For more information on Punarvasu Nakshatra, please check this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/punnaksh.
Gemini - As Punarvasu is part of Gemini, Gemini sign and its representations become important when any planet is in Punarvasu/Gemini. Gemini is the 3rd sign of zodiac belt, so it represents many things related with 3rd house of horoscope like, Communication Skills (either written, oral or even by sign language), Marketing, Business etc. It is a sign basically related with communications and business ideas. Gemini is divided into 2 and half nakshatra of Mrigashira, Ardra and Punarvasu. Gemini's lord is Mercury, which is significator of Communications.
Cancer - As Punarvasu is also a part of Cancer, Cancer sign and its representations become important when any planet is in Punarvasu/Cancer. Cancer is 4th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the things represented by 4th house like Mother, Mother's Care, Emotions, Taking Care of Others and Nourishment etc. Cancer is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras namely Punarvasu, Pushyami and Ashlesha. Cancer's lord is Moon, which again represents almost same things which Cancer and 4th house represents.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Gemini, Mercury’s position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Punarvasu/Gemini.
Moon - As Moon rules Cancer, Moon's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Punarvasu/Cancer.
Jupiter - As Punarvasu is ruled by Jupiter, Jupiter's position and dignity will also have an important role in functioning and results of any planet in Punarvasu.
Houses Involved – Also, we can’t afford to forget the houses involved as a planet can be ruling different houses and sitting in different house for every person as per ascendant and planet’s position. To know overall affect, we have to consider the houses involved as those areas of life are being impacted.
Interpretation of Jupiter in Punarvasu Nakshatra – Jupiter is in own nakshatra but in enemy sign in Gemini. Jupiter will be in better dignity in Punarvasu/Cancer as Jupiter is exalted there. As Punarvasu is nakshatra of rehabilitation and coming back to normalcy of life after chaos of Ardra, So, it is closely connected with counselling, health care and rehab-activities. Jupiter there would certainly show that person will be a guide or counselor to others who can help rehabilitating their lives to normalcy. In Gemini section, it is more a counselor/consultant whereas in Cancer section, it is more a teacher or health-care worker. Another point of distinction can be that in Gemini sign, they can be more concerned about their business and gaining through it but in Cancer sign, they can be more about serving others. As Punarvasu is also nakshatra of repeating things, they may do some work as stated above, then leave it and then come back again to that same work.
In matters of relationship, things can be better in Cancer section as Jupiter is exalted. But still, as it is nakshatra of repeating things, they can get into similar relationship issues time and again. Also, there can be cases of separation and reconciliation or even taking divorce and re-marrying the same person all over again.
Role of Mercury – Mercury's position will become important in functioning and results of Jupiter in Punarvasu/Gemini as Mercury rules Gemini.
Role of Moon – Moon's position will become important in functioning and results of Mercury in Punarvasu/Cancer as Moon rules Cancer. If Moon is in good dignity then Jupiter will have proper direction.
Role of Jupiter - As we are trying to interpret Jupiter only, we need not to look at Jupiter's position separately.
Other Factors – And of course, we need to consider conjunction, aspects, house lordship, house position and dashas etc to know the exact results of Jupiter in Punarvasu. So, we always need to take a holistic view of chart rather than just 1 planetary position.
Conclusion – So, this is how I see Mercury in Punarvasu can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
