Mercury officially stations Retrograde in Taurus April 21, 2023 at 4:35 am ET.
Mercury is midway through the sign of Taurus and is now retracing his steps for the next few weeks, until May 14, 2023 at 11:17 pm ET.
Communications can be more challenging during this period. Disagreements and differences in points of view and opinions can be increased, especially with stubborn and biased thinking. Not willing to admit when you’re wrong can dig wedges. Some may noticeably avoid and retract from social situations now. Rethinking how you communicate and what practical results come from your approach can lead to new ways of getting your message across. What you say could have more impact than you realize.
Rethinking and reconsidering details are super important now all around. Having different points of view and asking questions when things are not clear is suggested.
Actions can speak much louder than words now. Paying attention and observing more closely where words and actions don’t match will give you a lot of clues about what’s true and real and what is not. Information that is repeated, repeatedly as a tool of manipulating what people think and believe may be escalated at this time, but may not work so well. People that think for themselves and ask questions can get to the bottom of things.
Mistakes, misunderstandings, forgetfulness, and misplacement of physical objects and money due to absent mindedness is likely. Klutziness and practical accidents can give you reminders to pay more attention to your surroundings instead of being distracted. Being extra careful and extra attentive is wise now. This is also a time to recognize where you are not organized. Testing different approaches in your practical routines just to experiment and see what might work better is suggested.
Having something practical to focus on can help settle the mind and help you feel more grounded. This is a good time to get back in touch with natural environments and your body. Gardening and practical yard work can help the mind feel less anxious and more productive. Getting reconnected to the earth, eating natural, organic foods and living a holistic lifestyle is suggested. Yoga is a great practice for getting back in touch with body and mind now.
This is not the best time to make big financial decisions, as overlooking details that matter is likely now, especially if you feel rushed. However, if you must renew or sign any agreements, especially with financial lenders, be sure to double check the details and look at the fine print more closely.
This is a time to reevaluate what you have been building towards and thinking about what you want to change in your efforts and goals, and why.
Technological and electronic glitches could also be more notable now, especially with Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Aquarius. Backups of data could be extra helpful now. Cybersecurity could be an issue that gets more attention during this period as well.
Contradictions in environmental, energy and resources opinions could reveal a lot.
If you’ve been thinking of making arrangements or participating in events, it may be better to schedule plans after Mercury is finished Retrograde in a few weeks. Complications and errors due to miscommunications can make a mess of situations.
Investigations on financial dealings that go on behind the scenes in the business world could be messy now.
