Mercury is also called the ‘speedy messenger’ because it is fickle, fast (goes into retrograde about four times a year) and influences people’s minds and communication skills.
With Mercury, it is often a make-or-break situation, with communication and miscommunication going hand in hand, depending on its phase.
But it is about to enter the constellation of Taurus, which stands as an Earth sign. Taurus is all about stability and being grounded and practical.
When it gets the boost that Mercury brings, Taurus becomes a force to reckon with because it materializes all the great, useful and practical ideas that Taurus thinks up.
So, this transition will be all about practicality and utilitarian living – using the most of everything.
However, on the flipside, imagination and artistic fervor take the second place. Where an imaginative sign like Cancer is like the artist’s studio, Taurus would symbolize a factory, churning out tested and tried methods of daily use.
Stability and practicality come with that price. Wandering daydreams and thoughts that do not serve any immediate purpose are not going to be given importance, thanks to Mercury’s transition.
Mercury’s transition into Taurus on 6th May brings in stable reason and common sense. Taurus is quite the materialistic sign and it is all about churning out profit from the Earth it rises up from.
Mercury not only aggravates this effect but also helps Taurean individuals achieve it, through better thought processes and also better articulation during communication.
Taurus might not be effective at inventing or pioneering, but it is one of the best minimizing signs: it does the bare minimum of things in order to reap the best results.
There is a catch too: the bull is stubborn and so is Taurus; There is almost no flexibility in Taurus. Ned Stark’s famous line to Bran from the first episode of Game of Thrones would be apt: For Taurus, “Theirs is the old way”.
So, during this transition of Mercury, we might be finding ourselves taking rigid stances against things that would normally not faze us at all.
At the same time, there is also a great advantage when it comes to Taurus: it is also one of the most focused of signs and rarely does it waver when it comes to taking action. Drama and gossip will kind of disgust you if you are a Taurean during this transition.
When In Retrograde
Mercury has three to four retrograde phases each year, thanks to its short revolution cycle. Where Mercury would normally make Taurus more and more money-driven, in retrograde, Mercury can cause financial mishaps. This is because of the miscommunications caused by the retrograde.
So, it is best not to sign contracts or make financial commitments during a Mercury retrograde.
If You Are Someone Born When Mercury Was Staying In Taurus
In today’s world, being diplomatic is of the essence and so, Taurean individuals might come across as close-minded since they are stubborn.
The key always is to use communication and articulation as your weapons when creating the first impression.
As soon as that hurdle is crossed, it is a cakewalk for a Taurus as they almost always express their great, practical and useful ideas.
What a Taurean must always keep in mind, however, is that change is the only thing that is permanent in this world.
While standing up for your principles is quite necessary, embracing change and trying to listen to other perspectives is also very important in today’s globalized economy.
