Mercury in Taurus
Mercury, the planet of communication, enters the grounded earth sign Taurus.
Mercury in Taurus is practical. What works? Don’t spend time fussing about what doesn’t work – that’s a waste of resources. Adapt to reality and move on.
This is a pragmatic perspective, and when it comes to getting things done, it works well. In its shadow, Mercury in Taurus people can be stubborn communicators. The result can feel a bit like dealing with a bull in a china shop – these folks know their own truth but are not naturally inclined toward negotiation with others.
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Thoth has entered the emanation of Hathor. Hathor is the Great Goddess – she who loves everything about life on Earth and wants us to do the same. Here we find a message: our greatest resource is found in life itself - the plants, animals, our bodies, each other, our beautiful Earth. All our great ideas must lead to the protection and honoring of life. For Hathor, there is only one question – how can we creatively use our resources to create sustainability for all life on Earth? Nothing else matters.
Mercury/Thoth remains in the emanation of Taurus/Hathor until May 11.
