Mercury in Taurus on DrStandley.com

Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Here is a nice little piece of Mercury trivia for you. Mercury will never be more than one Sun Sign away from the Sun. This means someone who has their Sun in Taurus, will have their Mercury within 1 Sun Sign on either side of Taurus or it will be in the sign of Taurus. This means there are only three possibilities that an Taurus Sun Sign individual might have their Mercury in -- Mercury in Aries, Mercury in Taurus or Mercury in Gemini. This helps you guess someone's Mercury even if you don't know their exact birthdate but you know their Sun Sign. You can pretty much rule out Mercury in the opposite sign (Scorpio) or the four signs on each side Scorpio (Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces) and (Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra).

Mercury in the sign of Taurus places importance on traditional knowledge. This Mercury placement learns in a slow, methodical and hands-on manner. Mercury in Taurus sticks to old ideas and may fear having to learn anything new.

Mercury in Taurus produces a mind that is patient and practical. Thinking is often conservative, and thought processes are often fixed and unwavering. There is a likelihood of learning from experiences rather than from formal training. The power of concentration is absolutely outstanding.

Thinking and decision-making is based upon that which is practical, material and surrounded by common sense. Many will consider those born under Mercury in Taurus as a "slow-poke" when it comes to mental matters and communicating ideas. Mercury in Taurus is slow to form opinions because much thought is put into questions before rendering an answer, and does not like to be rushed into giving an answer.

This placement excels in handling financial matters and is very dependable in managing money. This placement also has a shrewd business mind and a natural inclination toward management of resources.

Often this position marks a degree of mental stubbornness and steadfastness, but it is more like everything else has been considered, so the mind has been made up after much consideration. Once the mind is made up, it is not likely to be changed or open to hear differing opinions and ideas.

In extreme cases, there may be a tendency to ignore obvious conclusions that differ from the initial decision. Guard against a tendency toward intellectual obstinacy and the highly opinionated views that sometimes plague Mercury in Taurus people.

Mercury in Taurus will Retrograde on Sunday, April 9, 2017 until Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at 12:33 PM EDT. Mercury Retrograde is going to take us back to 24 degrees Aries. That means Mercury is going to re-enter Aries during this Retrograde period, which will be on April 20, 2017. As Mercury travels back to 24 degrees, call to mind what was going on with you communication-wise or transportation-wise. That would have been around the time of March 26, 2017. That is the day before the New Moon was in Aries. Look to the area of your chart that is ruled by Aries at 24 degrees so you can see what area of your chart the Universe wants you to do-over. Remember, Retrogrades give us a 1st, 2nd and 3rd time to get something right. Mercury takes us forward in degrees, backward in degrees over the same degrees we just experienced, and then forward over those same degrees a third time. Retrogrades give us a chance to make things right and get things right before we progress forward. This is about taking care of old business, not starting new business. Stay Astrologized™.
