“Mercury’s Slow Down”
Mercury the planet that rules over your thinking and how you communicate is shifting today into more slowed down, grounded Taurus, and again this affects every single sign in the zodiac. Mercury will transit the sign of the bull sign until April 20th! Also, Mercury is preparing now to go into its Retrograde cycle and under this sign things can seem very slow moving and even at a snails pace. Which can be frustrating for all of you, since we’ve been in the strong Aries energy for awhile now and life has been busy! It’s going to take time to adjust to this new more slowed down and “look at the roses” kind of energy.
Mercury will remind Taurus through April 20th, but will shift back into Aries on the 21st due to its Retrograde phase, therefore Mercury will return to Taurus from May 16th-June 6th right after a Retrograde period in Aries. So we’re going to be dealing with this energy for a extended amount of time.
With Mercury in Taurus, you will take things more slowly and the energies come down a notch as you can feel more down to earth, stable, and grounded. Good old-fashioned common sense takes ahold. When you do communicate it is with intention and purpose, as the reality of any given situation is important. Your mind is connected very strongly to the five senses and the world around you under this influence. You tend to stick to what you know has worked in the past, so what is tried and true instead of trying new ways of thinking and communicating.
You are more serious in this energy, at least in what you think, and there is a reluctance to try a new technique since you are more comfortable with what already works. You do best connecting with one person rather than a crowd, and meaningful discussions can make your heart happy. This is a time for addressing any problems that exist with someone, and that also means anything fun that does happen tends to lack any shocks or surprises. Taurus mental energy for all of us is not flashy or showy at all, but can make you feel more demanding of certain peoples attention, especially if they are familiar or close family or friends.
While you show level-headedness in all business that you do during this cycle, you sometimes can miss certain opportunities because you are slow to respond. You are at your best when focused on important matters at work, and you may have difficulty with too many decisions. This isn’t a good time to multi-task, but it is good for researching possibilities and for perfecting certain skills. And hopefully climbing the corporate ladder if that’s a goal you have, remember it’s slow and steady for now, but at least you’ll be making momentum.
Your attention is given to one thing at a time as you can stay more focused and this can help keep things simple, but you must be careful of being to closed off and narrow-minded, and possibly overly conservative and even rigid in your way of thinking. You’re heart is usually more open during this cycle, so work on loving yourself more, it’s just you may have to remind yourself of this from time to time.
