Let’s take a look at those things which matter here –
Mercury - It represents communication skills, marketing, calculative ability, younger siblings, hobbies, skills with hands, intelligence, quick decision making, logical thinking, youthfulness etc.
For Pisces Ascendant people, Mercury rules the 4th house & 7th house of chart with its sign Gemini & Virgo. So, let’s look at 4th house, 7th house, Gemini and Virgo too.
4th house - It represents your home, home environment, homeland, mother, nourishment, childhood friends, peace of mind, conveniences, intuition etc.
7th house - It is house of market place, other people (masses), business partnerships, agreements, marriage, spouse, marital happiness etc.
Gemini - It 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.
Virgo - It is the 6th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents almost all the things which are represented by the 6th house of horoscope like Debts, Diseases, Obstacles, Serving the under-privileged, Service Life, etc. Besides this, Virgo represents analytical or critical skills of people, being perfectionist and healing abilities. Virgo's basic representation is the lady coming in boat with wheat and herbs in her hands. So, Virgo is basically a sign of healing. Virgo consists of 2 and half nakshatra. i.e. Uttara-Phalguni, Hasta and Chitra. Virgo's lord is Mercury.
What will Mercury do in Aspect? – Now, Mercury can be sitting in any house of chart for a Pisces Ascendant person.1st of all, Mercury will take the energy of house of chart, it rules with Gemini & Virgo sign, and take it to the house where it sits. Then from the house it sits, it will throw its aspect on the 7th house from its place. Now, as Mercury basically represents Communication, Collection of Information, Travelling, Teaching, Counselling and Advising, Mercury will make person communicate and counsel people related to the house it is aspecting about the houses it rules and also will make person collect information about the house it is aspecting.
Things which I still can’t cover – Although, I am trying to make it a detailed analysis of planetary aspects but I still can’t cover few things like dignity of planet involved, like Mercury conjunct with other planets, if there are planets in 7th house from Mercury where it aspects in which case those planets will aspect back at Mercury and impact it, and planets aspecting Mercury from other houses.
