Mercury in Taurus from April 23 to May 7, 2014

Mercury in Taurus

Give up the gab while Mercury is in earthy Taurus

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of taurus, sun, astrology

 

Get ready to give up your gift of gab — at least for a while. Chatty Mercury moves into slow-and-steady Taurus from April 23 to May 7, 2014.

Speedy Mercury, planet of communication, finds a more sturdy environment in earthy Taurus. This period is one in which solid values, concrete ideas and practical perspectives are likely to take on greater significance for all of us.

Mercury generally excels at flexibility, but Taurus is arguably the least flexible of all the zodiac signs. We may find ourselves digging in and taking rigid positions when opposed by different ideas, concepts or facts at this time. It’s vital that we not lose our ability to stay open-minded to overcome Taurean resistance to whatever is new or different.

Practicality gets things done

Ideally, Mercury in Taurus connects us with the earthy realities that will nurture the growth and development of our ideas. Taurus offers a rich soil of values and commitment that can provide resources to carry thoughts from conception to birth. Slow, careful conversations enable us to consider alternatives without ever losing sight of fundamental values and underlying practical issues.

Mercury tends to be a bit less gabby in Taurus than in most other signs. Some good examples are Johnny Depp, Clint Eastwood and Miles Davis, all born in chatty Gemini, but with communication styles reflective of their less talkative Mercury in Taurus.

Other famous Mars in Taurus names:

Singers – Taurus is associated with the throat, so it’s not surprising to find Barbra Streisand, Bono, Wynonna Judd, Janet Jackson, Cher, Carnie Wilson, Pete Townsend and Joe Cocker were also born with Mercury in the sign of the throat.

Actors – Actors with Mercury in Taurus are Alec Baldwin, Russell Crowe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Uma Thurman, Renee Zellweger, Annette Bening, Brooke Shields, George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, Jack Nicholson and Billy Dee Williams belong to the Merc in Taurus group.

Public Figures – Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, John F. Kennedy, Gary Kasparov, Sally Ride, Ram Dass, Orson Welles, Joe Louis and Pope John Paul II.

Your Horoscopes for Monday, April 14th

We want to build consensus with our allies but hidden emotions could be revealed today if we feel threatened by someone else’s power. The social Libra Moon shines a bright spotlight on relationships. But the Moon’s rough aspects to Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto can lure us down a rather bumpy road. Creating common ground is complicated by chatty Mercury joining erratic Uranus, urging us to share our thoughts without bothering to censor them.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Considering everyone’s feelings prior to initiating action means making decisions is very difficult today because you see everything from multiple perspectives. Even if you are in tune with your desires, you may be unsure of the best time to make your move. However, you might think you don’t have the option of waiting, but that comes from a false sense of urgency. Stop to assess the alternatives and postpone your final choices as long as possible. In this case, doing your research really counts.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Your natural tendency is to tackle your tasks one at a time and just methodically plow through them. However, there’s so much going on now that you might not be able to decide where to begin. Unfortunately, procrastination is not the answer today because the longer you put off the inevitable, the harder it gets. Be courageous and jump in anywhere you can. Things will fall into place once you quit worrying and get to work.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You might think that you can have fun while running errands or doing your chores today, but you may need to work hard to overcome the obstacles you encounter along the way. You could even wonder if someone is blocking your progress, but don’t jump to any hasty conclusions before you have sufficient facts to support your concerns. It’s best to keep moving toward your goals rather than wasting time rationalizing why you should turn around and give up. Taking the high road gives you an opportunity to shine.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It’s a bit simplistic to believe that you can accommodate everyone’s needs just because you see a complex issue from all angles. Although you may not have an easy answer, you could be the right person to mediate a serious domestic conflict today. Nevertheless, the picture might grow more complicated if you feel pressure to take sides. Don’t be afraid to establish strong boundaries by letting others know that you will share your assessment only after you are ready.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You want to take the time to hear everyone’s plans for the future before revealing your own. Unfortunately, you might need to make a critical decision that ends up disappointing someone, even if you do your best to take the concerns of others into consideration. It’s great to be optimistic in your outlook, but you won’t likely agree with every person involved. Explain your choices as kindly and firmly as possible; the best thing you can do next is to lead by example and move on.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your analytical skills are your greatest strength now, especially when you build on your previous work instead of beginning something new. However, you might face your own internal resistance before taking your work to the next level today. Although your fear of failure could make you worry that your efforts will go unnoticed, this isn’t the right time to reassess your direction. Just stick to your present path with as much confidence as you can muster; you may be progressing faster now than you realize.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You don’t have a lot of patience with others who act selfishly, but it’s awkward to tell them what they already should know. You’re on edge with the evocative Moon back in your sign now; however, it’s a mistake to keep your annoyance quiet just to maintain the peace. Unfortunately, there could be an emotional price to pay if you don’t express yourself today. The good news is that with a little social finesse you can remain authentic without placing blame on anyone else.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Every task — no matter how minor — is more complicated when you cannot make up your mind about what to do first. Ironically, the facts seem clear, yet you’re struggling with a dilemma as your imagination pulls you in opposite directions today. Unfortunately, your refusal to give up on either side prevents you from making the best choice. Your best bet is to wait out your uncertainty until the answer becomes more apparent. In the meantime, flexibility is your friend.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Expressing your emotions honestly always sounds like the best policy, but a spontaneous declaration of love may not go over very well today. Unfortunately, writing about the desires of your heart in an email or text won’t necessarily fare any better. Mischievous Mercury’s influence can bend your emotions out of shape, so you might not have a very clear perspective now, even if you believe you do. Only fools rush in; be smart and wait a few days before saying what’s on your mind. Channel your passion into expressing your creativity instead.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may have to play the role of the bad guy in a family conflict today. Or, perhaps someone is in dire need of your parenting skills now. However, you would rather hold a neutral position while you listen to everyone’s concerns. Even if you’ve had more than enough of hearing other people complain, you don’t have the luxury of being able to let your attention wander. Seeking the meaning behind the words instead of being distracted by the emotional intensity can trigger the breakthrough you were hoping for all along.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You have things to do that you’ve never done before, but fortunately, you like the excitement of new experiences. Your knack for balancing what you know with the unknown comes in handy today. However, you still must exercise caution or you could become lackadaisical in your approach. There’s very little margin for error, so don’t get lazy. Lowering your guard now is a likely invitation to trouble. Enjoy the adrenaline rush of embarking on an adventure, but make sure to be back home in time for dinner.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You are strong enough to handle the deep emotions of those around you, but you may be riding a seesaw today as you try to balance someone else’s feelings with your own. You truly want to be present for those you love, but you’re unsure about opening up to outside negativity now. The real lesson comes from being a supportive friend while still maintaining healthy boundaries. Your compassion can have a much more powerful impact if you’re willing to share your heart.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Monday, April 14th

After the astrological warnings of the past two days, now that Monday is here you should be well-prepared for an anything-goes kind of experience, right? Let’s hope so. Here’s the cosmically-inspired line-up for sky patterns affecting everyone on Earth: The Moon in Libra opposes Mercury in Aries (2:02AM); the Moon opposes Uranus (2:22AM); the Moon squares Pluto (3:09AM); Juno opposes Vesta (7:46AM); the Moon conjuncts Mars (9:01AM); Mercury squares Jupiter (11:33AM); the Moon parallels Venus (12:46PM); Mercury parallels Ceres (1:28PM); Mercury conjuncts Uranus (4:17PM); Pluto at 14 degrees of Capricorn becomes stationary (4:48PM and intensifying underworld-extremist Plutonic themes) and begins retrograde motion that lasts until September 22; the Sun is contra-parallel to Neptune (5:08PM); the Moon unites with Vesta (8:40PM); Mercury squares Pluto (9:14PM); the Sun trines Pallas (9:40PM); the Moon parallels Neptune (10:14PM); and the Sun opposes Ceres (10:38PM). This is definitely the largest number of alignments ever listed for a 24-hour entry in 32+ years of writing this calendar, and a couple of other minor aspects could have been included, too. Of course, it is possible that you can utilize some of today’s favorable geometric formations to your advantage — like the Moon parallel Venus, Mercury parallel Ceres, the Moon union with Vesta, the Sun trine Pallas, and even Mercury conjunct Uranus as well as the Sun opposite Ceres. Nevertheless, wisdom dictates that you remain cool and calm while many people are losing their tempers or acting irresponsibly. Every person who can rise to the occasion and play the role of Good Samaritan is a welcome addition to the core group of divine illuminators working behind the scenes to inspire our beleaguered planet. You may want to meditate this evening for world peace since the Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse happen very early tomorrow. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Mercury in Aries

Mercury in Aries

Brace yourself for fast talk and even speedier thoughts

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of mercury, astrology, aries

Watch your mouth! Mercury is moving through on-the-go Aries from April 7 – 23, 2014, so it’s time to brace yourself for fast talk and even speedier thoughts!

Mercury is the sprightly planet that impacts how we think and how we express ourselves. So Mercury in Aries will lift us out of a dreamy daze in how we perceive the world and the people around us. As Mercury transitions from peaceful Pisces to bold and brash Aries, our minds and our words will get less poetic and more action-oriented.

Aries is a Fire sign known for being impulsive, so be careful what you say! Comments might come out of your mouth before they’re fully formed, giving them a tinge of sarcasm or even an edge of insult — whether you intend them to or not. And even if we think we know the full impact of our words, there’s the danger that we haven’t thought far enough ahead about the effect they’ll have on those we care about.

At the same time, Aries is the first zodiac sign — literally, a true leader in Astrology. Our thoughts and speech could become more courageous, yes, but more than that, this pioneering sign could make us more innovative, too. It will be easier to think of fresh, brilliant solutions to nagging problems as we receive rushes of fresh inspiration. And with rebellious Uranus in Aries, too, we can really expect this innovative energy to fly off the charts.

But catch this inspiration as fast as it comes, because Aries is not known for being patient. In fact, it may be more difficult to complete everyday tasks if they lack the flavor of excitement.

Here are some tips to embrace the best parts of Mercury in Aries:

Don’t…

…get too caught up in the excitement of the moment; reconsider any commitments you’re about to make.
…allow yourself to get trapped in an argument, because neither you nor your friends or lover will be in the most logical place to resolve an issue.
…jump into too many new things at once.

Do…

…enjoy the fresh perspective you’ll experience when the no-holds-barred warrior sign takes control of your mental life!
…apply your taste for adventure and desire for new experiences to shake up your daily routine.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for April 2nd

If you were able to handle yesterday’s April Fools’ Day celestial onslaught, then give yourself a row of gold and silver stars for meritorious astro-zodiacal preparation and action. You are definitely not out of the woods yet by a long shot as the Sun forms its annual union with shock-inducing Uranus (12:10AM), Mars forms a dicey, 135-degree tie with far-out Neptune (12:29AM), Mercury makes an off-kilter, 150-degree link with Mars (2:45AM), and Venus connects with giant Jupiter via a frictional, 135-degree aspect (8:21AM). These four intense alignments — happening within an 8-hour time-span — can pack an emotional and psychic wallop. Luckily, the Moon in earthy Taurus may keep you practical, sensible and focused on necessities. Strive to utilize the Sun-Uranus conjunction at 13 degrees of Aries as a springboard to studying advances on the cutting edge of science, alternative medicine, and metaphysics. Watch out for a tendency to be too zealous and idealistic for your own good due to both 135-degree sky patterns. And because Mercury and Mars are battling in the heavens for a second straight day, it is wise to avoid contentious discussions that can flair into unintended arguments. Slow your pace later on when Mercury trines Saturn in earth signs (8:04PM). Think along shrewd pragmatic lines to make gains as a rising star on the business and entrepreneurial totem pole. Be aware that a void lunar uncertainty zone in Taurus begins at 11:44PM and lasts until 4:49AM tomorrow when the Moon enters airy, multi-faceted Gemini. Get set for more cosmic shenanigans on Thursday as Pluto, Uranus, and Mars continue to stir the proverbial pot. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
