Ma and Me influencing each other can give good reasoning ability. Scientific research or analytical work may be suitable for such combination. Any field requiring forceful communication like journalism, debating etc. may be suitable.

Mangal Dosha
Certain house positions of Ma in a person's kundali give rise to Mangal Dosha barring some debatable cancellation conditions. These positions according to Parashara are 1H, 4H, 7H, 8H & 12H. The primary consideration here is 7H, the house of marriage. Ma in 1H, 4H & 12H influences 7H by aspect. Ma in 7H obviously influences 7H. 8H is the house of life and hence it is also considered. At many places 2H is also considered for Mangal Dosha which perhaps has to do with the integrity of the joint family. The cancellation conditions of Mangal Dosha are not considered here.

Why are Mars & Mercury Enemies?
Mars is about action. An action can only be taken when decision has been taken to take the action. Mercury is about communication that can be viewed as to and fro motion. To and fro motion amplifies when there is a state of confusion. No single minded action is possible as long as there is a state of confusion. So, Mars and Mercury have opposite nature and hence they are enemies.

Why do Ju and Me have love and hate relationship?
Ju is knowledge and Me is communication, i.e. the medium through which knowledge is expressed. This way, Ju and Me compliment each other. However, Me is somewhat materialistic whereas Ju is also about wisdom or going beyond materialism. In this context, there can be some contradiction between Ju and Me.
