Mulatrikona means "root trine". These are special areas where a planet functions very well, almost as well as exaltation. They usually consist of some portion of the positive sign ruled by the planet. However, with the Moon it is part of its exaltation sign, as the Moon does not have a positive or odd numbered sign.
With Mercury it is part of its own and exaltation sign Virgo, as it has no special sign of exaltation.
