Today, the planet of information, communication, and expression, moves out of fiery Aries and into down-to-earth Taurus. Mercury rules our mental planes and the time it has spent in Aries had our mental planes in overdrive, pushing us aggressively to come up with new ideas, and expressing ourselves in a brand new, confident, brave kind of way.
As much as we benefitted from this energy, it will be a welcomed break to have our mental planes calm down a bit, grounding our thought process into a more logical, and focused way.
When Mercury is in Taurus, we are focused on life as it is, and not what we want it to be. We get tunnel vision, focused on our basic needs, our foundations of work, money, and long-term relationships. We are thinking clearly with Mercury in Taurus, and because Taurus rules self-worth and values, you can expect to only communicate and express yourself when there is a message about your boundaries to be relayed.
This is a great time to think about all of the talents and skills you possess, and think very carefully about how you are utilizing them to the best of your ability. Are you being productive in the thoughts and emotions you are trying to communicate to others?
There is a deliberate act of expression that happens when Mercury is in Taurus, as we only feel the need to share things of value. The conversation in our relationships will be more direct as to cut away the bullshit, and deal with life as it is. When Mercury is in Taurus we have the opportunity to see details in our environment and social exchanges that we may have overlooked.
Since the Taurean energy has us concerned on the physical senses and experiences, we need to listen to what our body needs. Taurus is an earth energy, stable, strong, and somewhat rigid, as they despise change. This will influence us due to the fact that Taurean energy is also very stubborn.
There is a caution during this transit to be aware of how far you will go to dig in your heels and not budge on an idea that you may become too attached to. There isn’t a whole lot of wiggle room in the fixed energy of Taurus, so be mindful of where your stubbornness will reveal itself when your ideas are being challenged.
This energy is a great way to simplify, and minimize the activity in the mental plane, only focusing on one thing at a time, and only on things that are existing in your world already. We’ve spent months dreaming and envisioning our dream life, but now we need to get back to reality and see if we are utilizing the tools and resources we currently have to the best of our abilities.
As always, if you require any assistance navigating these energies, please book a session online, and I’d be more than happy to help guide you through.
