Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Mercury into Taurus May 2019

 

                                                

 

Astrological Event:

Mercury Moves  into a new Sign

New Sign: Taurus

Date: May 6 2019 @ 2:25 pm (ET) 11:25 am (PT)

What does it all mean?

Mercury is all about the mind… how we think… he is also the messenger and therefore relates to how we communicate… He rules over transportation, technology and innovation… He is the ruler of the signs Virgo and Gemini and is associated with the 3rd and 6th houses.

Taurus is ruled by Venus and is connected to the 2nd house. Financial and Material security are very important to Taurus. 

  • We are more grounded and rely on our common sense over fantasy thinking.
  • Doing one thing at a time is preferable to trying to multi-task.
  • Communicating with others is more deliberate, rather than superficial. Some of us may need a little time to absorb new knowledge or new ways of doing things, as it’s much easier to rely on the tried and true now.
  • Being stubborn comes easier now, which can make this a good time to “stick to our guns” on the things that are closest to our heart… got something doing that needs that extra bit of a push or determination? now may be the best time to do it.
  • We can be more cautious and practical under this influence, especially when it comes to our finances or our primary residence. It could be a good time to look into purchasing that “forever home” as we can be sensible about our needs, while understanding the limits of our budget.
  • Take care not to be too opinionated, it’s easy to miss out on opportunity or knowledge, just for the sake of only “seeing” one choice or direction.  
  • This influence will affect everyone and will be stronger for those with the following in their charts:
  • Mercury in Taurus
  • Sun in Taurus
  • Moon in Taurus
  • Mercury in the 2nd house
  • Any Mercury/Venus aspects

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Mercury into Aries April 2019

 

                                                 

 

Astrological Event:

Mercury Moves into Aries

Date(s): April 16 2019 to May 7 2019 (PT) April 17 2019 to May 8 2019 (ET)

What does it all mean?

Mercury is all about the mind… how we think… he is also the messenger and therefore relates to how we communicate… He rules over transportation, technology and innovation… He is the ruler of the signs Virgo and Gemini and is associated with the 3rd and 6th houses.

Aries is a fire sign, he likes action, he can be heroic or selfish. Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, the most masculine planet of the horoscope. 

  • We can have less patience, so some of us may get frustrated when attempting to get our point across to someone less enthusiastic to our cause. 
  • Speaking our mind is easier, but care should be taken when the conversation involves a “hot topic”. 
  • Some folks are going to expect instant answers to their queries and questions, or instant solutions, which may not always be possible. Patience is encouraged when dealing with situations requiring solutions or answers. 
  • Innovative ideas are possible. Under this influence our thoughts are explorative, so it’s a good time to ask questions and learn about things that may be interesting. 
  • It’s a great time to share ideas with like-minded folks. And for some it could be a good time to put some ideas into action. 
  • Communications, travel and technology may all take on a “hurried” sensation.
  • For fire sign people, (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and those who have fire signs in their charts, are encouraged to be careful while speaking, driving and using dangerous equipment… less haste, more care is suggested. 
  • While we may all be touched by the Influence of Mercury in Aries, those with the following chart placements will feel the influence more. 
  • Mercury in Aries
  • Mars in Aries
  • Sun in Aries
  • Moon in Aries
  • Midheaven in Aries
  • Ascendant in Aries
  • Any Aspects to Mercury

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Mercury into Taurus March 2017

 

Astrological Event:

Mercury Moves into a new Sign

New Sign: Taurus

Date: March 31 2017

 

What does it all mean?

Mercury is all about the mind… how we think… he is also the messenger and therefore relates to how we communicate… He rules over transportation, technology and innovation… He is the ruler of the signs Virgo and Gemini and is associated with the 3rd and 6th houses.

Taurus is about security, feeling good and enjoying the pleasures of the senses. She is sensual and “demands” comfort and is the happiest when she has savings put away for a rainy day. Money is important because it brings about the lifestyle and comfort needed.  Having a secure roof over one’s head is a must to reduce every day stress.

  • We can be slower at coming up with solutions to our every day issues, but solutions will be found if we give ourselves time enough to find them.
  • It is far better to put our minds to learning one thing well, then it is to trying to learn a little about a lot of things. Taurus doesn’t like being rushed, and she doesn’t learn well if she is.
  • Our finances may be in focus, and we may feel the need to pull out our paper work, to talk to our bank managers or financial advisors. It’s not so much of a worry, but more of a nagging sense of getting such things in order, so we can get the most out of our budget.
  • Shopping might be on the agenda for some, but it may not go as planned, finding that perfect outfit may be a challenge, but as with all things Taurus.. patience  can win out in the end… 🙂
  • We could find we are struggling a bit between wanting to feel fit and healthy and that pull towards doing just a little too much relaxing, especially those of us still the last grips of winter.. However, we are all encouraged to get  up and move, who knows some of us may be introduced to an exercise regime we can handle.
  • While Taurus loves her comfort foods, it is a good time to try and figure out a healthier diet, don’t go crazy though, as that may be a deterrent, start by cutting down on the “sin foods” a little bit at a time… add more greens and salads…
  • Common Sense rules the day under this influence, indicating it can be a good time to get down to business… clean out the cupboards, get paperwork in order, go to bed at a decent time, stick to routines, and get the chores done…
  • Watch out for being overly stubborn  just for the sake of being stubborn… be aware of your motives and why you might be saying no… don’t miss out on great opportunities just because you are grumpy or feel better in your jammies then having to get dressed and go outside and mingle.
  • For folks with personal fire signs in their charts, this might turn out to be a bit of a bumpy ride as you will have to refrain from being so impatient.. you won’t win against the strong Taurus influence… Give your slower thinking family, co-workers and friends a break for the next few weeks…Mercury goes Retrograde in April and will move back into the Fire sign of Aries

Mercury the planet of communication and technology has been in Retrograde motion since the end of August 2016. He turns direct again on September 22nd. However, he is still in his “storm” until September 25… this means the effects of the Mercury retrograde are still in effect until that day… it is therefore advisable to put of starting anything new until after the 25th… 🙂
