Mercury enters Taurus on April 27, 2020 at 3:52 pm ET.
Mercury is quick and will only be in Taurus for a couple of weeks until May 11, 2020 at 5:57 pm ET.
Mercury thinks fast, but in Taurus, it’s time to slow it down a bit for most of us.
Of course getting in touch with the earth element and spending time in nature is advised. Walking barefoot in the grass and bathing in warm light of the sun can help slow you down and also help relieve a stressful mind. This is a great time to freshen up your green thumb and learn more about gardening, plants, flowers, and foods you can grow in your yard.
It’s a great time to bring your mind into your body with deep breathing, yoga, or going for a massage to bring calm to the mind. A relaxed start to your mornings, like enjoying slowly sipping a cup of tea while you leisurely observe life is recommended. A cappuccino first thing in the morning while watching the birds as the sun rises is one of my favorite morning routines.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, goddess of love, so this is a good time to think about romance. Speaking with the one you love, or reading romance novels is suggested. Venus is in Gemini, which is ruled by Mercury, so there is a natural affinity here now.
If you have an anxious mind and think too much these days, this is a good time for you to release some of that speedy mind chatter. Doing things on a slower pace like going for walks or lifting weights slowly to feel the experience of your body-mind connection rather than rushing to get through the count of repetitions can help train your mind to quiet down.
Learning is considered to be slower with Mercury in Taurus, so rather than flipping through your feed online to access loads of random information, you could try changing the pace by reading a real physical book made of paper to help slow you down and practice staying focused.
Taurus is a fixed sign and known for patience, so when your mind wanders, take in a few deep breaths, tune in to your body and the environment around you and chillax.
If you are the type that is often all over the place, and often unsure what you’re doing or thinking, or don’t know what you want, this can be a great time create a step by step plan to help you make up your mind.
Mercury in Taurus is great for getting down to doing the work that needs to get done, but you should also find time for leisure for a better work-life balance which can lead to much better productivity overall.
Taurus is the builder, so this would be a great time to learn more about how to construct, design or make something manifest in the real world. Artists and creators should find this time especially valuable for creativity.
If you’re looking to make a practical change in your life, perhaps stepping away from the rat race, this can be a great time to look into what it’s like to live off grid. Taurus likes security, and learning skills like building a home and creating a more self-sufficient lifestyle could be worth discovering. With Uranus in Taurus now, solar panels may be of interest. It could be smart to get a mini-solar powered charger for your phone, which can be helpful if there is a power outage.
Mercury rules commerce and Taurus is also geared toward finance, ownership and valuables. It’s a good time to think about and learn more about money matters, and your financial security. Wealth builders and investors can also find this to be a great time to put on your thinking cap. Thinking of new ways to build your income through different work options is worth considering now.
Mercury in Taurus can also inspire a more stubborn streak, so if you’ve got your mind set on something, this could be a great time to stay on course and keep yourself moving slowly but surely toward accomplishing productive goals. Slow and steady wins the race. This is also a good time to be disciplined enough that you are able to accomplish what needs to be done.
Some people could be extra stubborn in their views at this time, and may not budge on an opinion, so know when to stop pushing disagreements before they create problems.
This is also a great time to use your common sense. Rather than just accepting things you are told right away, this can be a good time to just take your time before deciding. When new ideas come your way, it is wise to take as much time as you need to make the right decision. It’s okay to be picky before any confirmation.
A more conventional, traditional or conservative mindset, especially regarding conservation of resources and finances is associated with Mercury in Taurus as well.
Taurus generally doesn’t like change, so if you are the type that never gets to things, you are a couch potato, or just in a rut, Mercury in Taurus can give you enough inspiration to make a change to get yourself moving a bit faster than usual to help you find more balance.
Whether you are writing comments online or writing a book, this can be a great time to be more cautious and deliberate with what you say.
This is a great time to stop and smell the flowers. Aromatherapy can do wonders for the mind, bring mental clarity and uplift your mood! The olfactory system is a direct route to your mind! Rosemary is one of the best for memory and many essential oils can help calm the mind and reduce stress levels.
