Slow down joy time is perfectly synched as Mercury, a fast-moving, fast-talking planet moves through slow, steady, sensuous Taurus April 27 until May 11th. Mercury moves fast. But not while it transits Taurus. Wherever MERCURY is, that’s where the consciousness is. Especially while we are at home in Quarantine due to COVID-19 having Mercury in Taurus is a blessing. Our minds are in slow as molasses mode now. Which is a good thing as we’re always overstimulated and overthinking.
Mercury is consciousness itself, our brains, our thought processes and everything we use to communicate with. Mercury is symbolized by the Magician Card #1 in the tarot. Mercury is also known as a Trickster like the Hopi Kachina clowns, and Coyote in Indigenous Myths and Foxes are also trickster figures and is related to the Fool in the tarot.
Mercury in Taurus wants to talk and think about and savour about, material things, beautiful possession, art, blue-chip things, jewelry, money, extravagant decoration, romance, real estate, flowers and nature. PLus massages, chocolate, etc.
If you are a Taurus or have Taurus planets Mercury will touch them all. LIBRA also feel the effects the most.
TAURUS rules the BULL MARKET STOCK EXCHANGE founded on May 17, 1792, under the sign of Taurus the Bull.
Taurus rules the throat chakra and our vocal cords. It is a power center to make our voice heard, to communicate with words and intentions to make our desires real in the world. Focus on your throat chakra while Mercury is in TAURUS. Sounding and toning is good. Just tone the vowels A E U O U. Crystal bowl sound baths are very healing. Chanting spiritual mantras is also recommended while Mercury is in TAURUS.
Mercury in Taurus can be either lot of bullshit or intolerance for it. Mercury is a dualistic planet.
MERCURY rules GEMINI and VIRGO in Taurus it trines all VIRGO placements. Mercury will soon be in GEMINI.
While Mercury is in Taurus we think of our body’s needs first. We communicate through our gut instincts. Smell the roses, lumber along, our minds and our words slow down. Get or give massages and get your mind in the dirt out camping or in nature. This is hands-on, DIY time, make stuff, buy handmade quality things on ETSY especially while we are at home in Quarantine.
Taurus is ruled by Venus and she turns Retrograde in Gemini May 12/13th until June 25.
