Mercury Retrograde is now back in Taurus since May 22, 2022 bringing more attention to issues in material security matters like money, jobs, food and bodily autonomy.

Mercury Retrograde in Taurus connects with Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn May 25, 2022 at 5:48 pm ET. Misinformation and skewed points of view, especially politics could lead to the need for deeper probing and clarity now. Hearsay is too often what people believe and rely on to form their opinions. Nearly everything we hear on TV is skewed by hearsay and biased opinion rather than factual truth, especially in the realm of politics and media. This is the time to step back and assess what’s really going on and not just believe something because you are told to believe it. We could see a turn of events now in politics and finance with money, jobs, food and supplies which could actually wake people up to the importance of further investigation, if only people could get past cognitive dissonance. We could hear a lot in the rich and powerful sphere about “rebuilding” and “re-calibrating” around this time, but all factors “by way of destruction” goes unsaid.
Venus in Aries connects with Saturn in Aquarius May 25, 2022 7:05 am ET. The balance between individuality and social groups is in focus here. Peer pressure to conform to the group mind can feel restricting, but will help give you clarity in who really cares about you. Trust in relationships is necessary for you to feel confident in yourself. Choose only those that you know for sure are trustworthy. Anyone restricting you from being true to yourself is not your best ally.

Nightmares based on subconscious, hidden fears are possible around this time. These two planets connecting can be especially dramatic, and we could see major, aggressive moves in politics. Deceptions and secret actions at the underbelly of what’s really going on can cause powerful actions and reactions in the political and financial sphere.
