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 Daily Cosmic Calendar for Earth Day 2014

Celebrating the Earth — on a particular day — has a cosmic source and confirmation as it occurs early in the Sun-in-Taurus time-period every year. And Taurus is the first earth sign of the zodiacal circle. However, while communing with Mother Nature is definitely a must for many human souls right now, the last 48 hours of sky patterns have been harsh-to-severe in many areas of life. It is likely that a good number of people are picking up the pieces of difficult situations related to social affairs, family concerns, and business matters. Yesterday’s mammoth Uranus-Pluto square — on top of the Jupiter-Uranus and Jupiter-Pluto aspects from Sunday — are still operating beneath the surface, causing disruptions across the board in what ought to be regular daily activities. Now the Last Quarter Sun-Moon Phase (energizing 3 degrees of Taurus and Aquarius at 12:53AM) greets you with a strong dose of tension — followed nearly 12 hours later by an abrasive square between Mars in Libra and Jupiter in Cancer (12:29PM). The red planet Mars increases the pressure as it forms a contra-parallel with usually productive and nurturing Ceres (1:26PM). Because Mars is the traditional planet of passion, desire, emotional release, aggression, volatility and warfare, you can never assume that martial forces will play by the rules, be nice, and stay calm. Instead, it is sensible to avoid risky behavior, steer clear of temperamental types, and strive to be a peacemaker within your household, neighborhood or community (particularly with the Moon in the universal air sign of Aquarius). The recent brouhaha creating disharmony in the heavens is not over yet as Mars rekindles its fiery nature early on Wednesday. [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.]

Born on the Aries-Taurus Cusp

Born on the Aries-Taurus Cusp

The Cusp of Power is a force to be reckoned with

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of taurus, cusp, astrology, aries

Watch out world, here comes the almighty Aries-Taurus cusper! If you were born on the cusp between Aries and Taurus, between about April 17 to April 21, you were born on The Cusp of Power and you are indeed a force to be reckoned with.

Authoritative and bold, people born on the Aries-Taurus cusp are natural born leaders. They’ll take charge at work or at home, and the two signs’ energies mix well for success — impulsive Aries lends energy and pushes forward toward goals, while practical Taurus takes care of all the details.

One area to watch is that of being too forceful, and barreling right over the opinions and desires of others. Those born on the Aries-Taurus cusp can’t stand to watch others do things the know darn right they could do better themselves.

How do they know that? Because they’re quite opinionated! This isn’t always a bad thing, it’s just important to find balance, tone down all those aggressive winning instincts and learn to better respect the feelings of others.

Then the funny, helpful, strong and dependable side to the Aries-Taurus cusp will shine in its own powerful light.

Moon Sign Compatibility

Moon Sign Compatibility

When it comes to finding love, look to the Moon

Tarotcom Staff Tarotcom Staff on the topics of moon, love, astrology

When it comes to love, your Moon sign can help you meet your perfect match! After all, the Moon represents your true  emotional  side and the way you react to others in your relationships.

Your Moon sign is determined by the presence of the  Moon  in a particular zodiac sign at the time of your birth.

Astrology’s four elements (Earth, Fire, Water, Air) greatly help to determine your  Moon sign  compatibility, as the qualities within each element help  define the  person you are today and what you may be looking for in a  partner.

Moon in Aries

For you, it’s  all about “cut to the chase.” Quick-thinking and  straight-to-the-point,  you exude confidence while taking an active  stance in almost any  situation — Aries is a pure Fire sign  through-and-through! According  to Moon Astrology, you are your closest  match! Yes, a fellow Aries  would suit you well, as the two of you could  find romance while  playfully competing with one another. Bold and  strong-minded Fire sign  Leo also makes a match, while more sensitive  Moon signs Cancer or  Scorpio, do not.

Moon in Taurus

Taurus is known  for its stubborn nature, making it difficult to cut  through your  strong-will … especially in romance. But beyond that,  there’s a lover  of luxury and comfort (love goddess Venus rules over  you, after all).  If you can find another Taurus who shares in your  indulgences, that  would be great (and fun, too!) — but you could also  butt heads where  it really counts. Those with precise Virgo and  Capricorn Moons would be  a match — but a Libra Moon would find it most  difficult to carry on  its diplomacy through your more bullish  tendencies.

Moon in Gemini

Chatty Gemini  Moons are always moving from place to place, love interest  to love  interest! Your ruling planet — communicative Mercury — would  find  much fulfillment in Air signs Aquarius or Libra, feeding into your   desire to talk up a storm about high-minded topics at almost any given   moment. The more serious Capricorn or Scorpio Moon signs may pose a  challenge, and while dating a Pisces could be nice, both your flirty and   flighty similarities may equal just a fling.

Moon in Cancer

The Moon rules  over Cancer, making you one of (if not the most)  emotionally-charged  signs. Tapping into your feelings and the feelings  of those around you  is second nature, and so dating a fellow Cancer  Moon would create a  lifetime of a very nurturing, caring partnership.  Dreamy Pisces and  more inward Scorpio also makes a match, while brazen  Leo – even with  its brazen approach to self-expression — may prove too  much to  emotionally bear.

Moon in Leo

Your Fire sign is  also ruled by the Sun — the perfect recipe for one  self-assured Moon  sign! You want to be a leader, you want to make the  most out of any  given opportunity and you want your partner to take note  and appreciate  your strengths. An action-oriented Aries and optimistic  Sagittarius  make ideal partners who have enough confidence themselves to  keep up  with you, while stubborn Taurus or protective Scorpio do not  make the  best match.

Moon in Virgo

With  communication planet Mercury ruling over your Moon sign, you are   constantly critiquing and analyzing almost every situation and   conversation, and you love perfection — this desire for clean and   clear-cut may carry over in your relationships especially. A fellow Virgo or down-to-business Capricorn make good matches for you, while you may struggle with an Aquarius or Sagittarius Moon’s more light-hearted  and free-flowing approach to life and love.

Moon in Libra

Fair and balanced is your biggest relationship rule, as you are always  the diplomatic  lover, ruled by love goddess Venus. Aquarius and Gemini  Moons would  appreciate your harmonious requirements, still keeping with  your airy  and creative mentality. Aries, on the other hand, would not be   compatible with you, as the strong survival instincts of the Aries Moon   may find either of your running away in the face difficult times.

Moon in Scorpio

Deep and private  by nature, the Scorpio Moon is a motivated Moon with a  knack for sussing out information and details taking place under the  surface.  Your partner should think twice before pulling one over on you!  An  intimate Taurus or intelligent Virgo Moon would make a good match, appreciating and reciprocating your drive and desire, while an  independent Aquarius Moon may not appreciate your often suspicious ways.

Moon in Sagittarius

You love to  find joy, pleasure and enthusiasm in all of your endeavors,  and you  truly put your faith into matters of the heart. An open-minded  Gemini  or Aquarius Moon would suit your optimistic outlook in  relationships,  but an overly sensitive Cancer or stubborn Taurus Moon  could simply  bring you down.

Moon in Capricorn

Always  climbing, always reaching and always striving for the best … as  strict  Saturn rules over your Capricorn Moon, a more serious Taurus or  Virgo  Moon could understand and entertain your need to master your  endeavors.  At the same time, you may also appreciate a Cancer Moon’s  more  nurturing take on a disciplined home life. However, a Libra Moon  may pressure you to too much to come down from your mountain and meet in  the middle.

Moon in Aquarius

You are  calm, cool and collected — and you know how to handle  situations both  independently and by working together for a common  cause. A more  spontaneous and courageous Leo Moon could serve you well  by boosting  your strengths and supporting your individuality, while a  stubborn  Taurus or impatient Aries may not make the best match as you  continue  on your own personal search for revolution.

Moon in Pisces

Since you’re a  big dreamer and gentle by nature, the Pisces Moon will  not fare well  with another Moon sign as submissive and docile as you –  that rules  out a Sagittarius or Libra Moon. However, an intense Scorpio  or  efficient Virgo could be just the sign to snap you out of your dreams   and visions and bring you back to reality.

Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, February 5th

Life seems a bit tamer after the past few high-energy days, but we quickly relax into the new emotional terrain once the Moon enters laid-back Taurus at 4:46 am EST. We may even be more peaceful with pleasure stemming from simple activities like walking in nature, reading a book or just spending time with friends and family. However, talking about our feelings might lead nowhere as messenger Mercury grinds to a halt and turns retrograde tomorrow.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you wish your life was less complicated today, you might have more work to do before you can separate yourself from the noise you have created. Your path may seem clear now, but it still could take quite a bit of determination on your part to reach your destination. Be careful not to slip into denial and fall back into complacency. There are changes that need to be made, so don’t give up the good fight. Your passionate persistence is your secret weapon.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

No matter how much you might want to focus on your feelings, it’s challenging to stop your mind from spinning around in circles today. You are thinking about so many different things and the thoughts continue to fly by, just out of your grasp. Frustration arises if you attempt to make use of your fantastic ideas, but there’s no reason to be overly concerned about productivity for now. Instead, just sit back and enjoy the show.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You don’t want to wait quietly on the sidelines and let something important happen without adding your two cents. In fact, you may be so sure of your convictions today that you are driven to speak your mind whether or not others want to hear your opinion. Keep in mind that you will be better off in the long run if you limit your comments to only the most critical issues. Your words will have more impact if you choose your battles wisely.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your flexible attitude allows you to temporarily minimize an unresolved issue today. You can easily let go of emotions that were bothering you in return for a bit of spiritual refreshment and social enjoyment. However, you might not be ready to relinquish all your feelings, but at least set them aside for a while without judging anyone too harshly. Spending some quality time with your friends or family is more restorative if your heart is fully open to the experience.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may be lost in contemplation today, as you Lions drift off into a rather complex dreamscape. However, ignoring the interpersonal dynamics at work is not a wise move since the current situation could be complicated by someone’s unexpressed feelings. As much as you want to escape into your inner world now, you must meet your professional obligations before slipping away to explore your imagination.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You might have already scheduled some fun for yourself today, only to discover that nothing is going to happen quite as you thought. You can still enjoy yourself, but it won’t be without a bit of confusion creeping into your life. Bring yourself back to your center and shrug off the minor inconveniences or you could inadvertently make things worse. Remember the best way to minimize stress and impress others is to keep your sense of humor intact.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You can get all wrapped up in mental gymnastics now, even though your stoicism may prevent you from talking about your worries with others. You feel like you should be more lighthearted today, but there are serious issues that just won’t go away until you deal with them. Even with singular focus, resolution probably won’t come quickly. In the meantime, do something creative with your irritation instead of spreading it to others.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Ironically, you are aware of life’s simplicity and its many complications at the very same time. With the evocative Moon moving through sensible Taurus today, your primary drive is toward experiencing pleasure. Yet, as a Scorpio, you always enjoy delving into a good mystery. Be careful if it appears that someone else can ameliorate your need for complexity, for this is just an illusion. Like it or not, your fate is completely in your own hands.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Returning to the basics isn’t what normally motivates you, but simplification just may be the most critical theme in your life now. You are at a significant intersection today, and taking the on-ramp to the busy freeway might not be your best choice. You could have a very positive influence on your environment, but you must step out of the fast lane and onto the road less traveled so you can create the type of connections you want.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Rethinking your core assumptions or reinventing your image offers the best chances for success today. Since this transformational process may continue for a while yet, it’s wise to review and reevaluate last year’s accomplishments while they are still fresh in your mind. Strive to put closure on as many loose ends as possible over the next few weeks to make plenty of room for your future exciting endeavors.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Inner conflict may stress you out as you begin to reconsider a logical decision you recently made. Unfortunately, your feelings might not fall in line with your rational analysis today as you expected. Thankfully, your dilemma isn’t all that obvious to anyone else; nevertheless, a special person could come to your rescue now. Remain open to receiving good news from a friend or family member, for it can provide just enough hope to settle your angst and nudge you in the right direction.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your current indecision gets in the way of finalizing your plans. Naturally, you want to do what is best, but your good intentions may go awry today, especially if your expectations are unrealistic. It’s difficult to say no to anything that sounds like fun, even if it isn’t very practical. Instead of needlessly complicating matters even more, rely on a second opinion from someone you trust before making any commitments now that you will later regret.
