Mercury Direct in Taurus:

Slow and Steady Mindset

In 2023, Mercury is retrograde in all three earth signs.

Mercury will be in Taurus on April 3rd until June 11th, 2023.

On April 21st, it moves retrograde until May 14th, 2023. 

Mercury in Taurus reminds us that there is much more about life that can be figured out when we are practical.

What Happens When Mercury is Retrograde in Taurus?

Mercury is the planet of communication, learning, commerce, and short-distance travel. It is the ruling planet of Gemini and Virgo. Mercury retrograde affects everyone, regardless of your sign.

When a planet is moving retrograde, it appears as if it is moving in the opposite direction from our perspective here on earth. But it is simply an illusion. As an effect, expect all things related to information, communication, technology, and contracts to go awry.

During Mercury Retrograde in Taurus, you may have felt that things are especially slow. Taurus rules sensual pleasures and stability. So during this retrograde, try not to make hasty decisions about love, major purchases, and other financial matters. 

When Does Mercury Turn Direct in Taurus?

Mercury turns direct again in Taurus on May 14th, 2023. It is the perfect time to dive into those tasks that have been on the back burner.

What Happens When Mercury Turns Direct in Taurus?

Taurus is the earth sign representing sensuality, money, and material success. When Mercury turns direct in Taurus, there is great emphasis on rational thinking.

Your focus may be on financial and material matters, as Taurus is the sign of personal resources and possessions.

Normally, Mercury is not so comfortable in the sign of Taurus. This is because Mercury is a restless planet of constant mental activity, whilst Taurus prefers to take the unhurried route.

Taurus prefers the traditional ways and is less prone to changing their mind even if new information is revealed, which Mercury and Mercury-ruled signs Gemini and Virgo tend to do.

But as Mercury turns direct in Taurus, it brings with it a slow and steady mindset that favors concrete thinking over abstract thoughts.

Taurus’s approach to Mercury brings us back down to earth with a vengeance. Dwelling on what’s real, tangible, and at hand can help us to avoid getting bogged down with over-complicated processes or ideas.

During this time, the mind often wanders to the realm of material pleasures. As Taurus is a fixed sign, keep in mind that our mind is likely to be stubborn and narrow as well

We may feel more comfortable maintaining routines and making slow-paced decisions. We’re also more inclined to follow tradition than come up with new ideas.

This period can emphasize a love of comfort, as well as stubbornness or rigidity.

Here is how Mercury direct in Taurus shall affect you uniquely depending on your zodiac sign.

Mercury Direct in Taurus for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20th – April 19th)

You find that your thoughts are much easier to manage after the retrograde, Aries. If you have financial concerns, they should be discussed with others during this period. Mercury in this house may also enhance communication with others regarding money matters.

Use the energy from this period to make positive changes in your financial situation. Pay attention to money matters, as it could be a time of making improvements to your home or earning more income with your writing or artistic talents.

Mercury Direct in Taurus for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20th – May 20th)

Taurus, you might have found yourself silenced and mentally bogged-down during the retrograde. Now, with Mercury moving forward in your sign, you feel a strong urge and confidence to express yourself. During this period, you are much more sharp, witty, and very attuned to what others are saying around you.

It is period can bring news, travel, and discussions of everything from gardening to the latest movies seen on Netflix. It’s a good time to communicate with friends, family, and associates.

You are able to see with great clarity the most efficient and reliable way to approach something—a task, a situation, or an opportunity. Your practicality is heightened, so you may be surprised by how much you enjoy simple tasks like cleaning and fixing up your home! A renewed sense of efficiency will also benefit your relationships and social life.

Mercury Direct in Taurus for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21st – June 20th)

Gemini, beware of petty squabbles with others and don’t waste time dwelling on past grievances – you need to look forward now rather than backward! Spiritual growth and understanding are likely to be important issues for you during this time.

The best course of action is to examine the past for answers, rather than focusing on some aspect of it that is no longer relevant or useful.

Creative activities are encouraged, especially those related to spirituality and service. Following the confusing retrograde, you may benefit from spending time alone in reflection during this period.

Mercury Direct in Taurus for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21st – July 21st)

Cancer, there may be social activities and events and plenty of exchanges with colleagues and friends during this time. This period also increases our interest and ability in all forms of communication, including writing letters, calling people up on the phone, exchanging ideas, and talking about issues.

This is a time to learn new skills and gain information, so spend as much time as possible learning about something that interests you. Your sense of humor and playfulness may become more apparent, yet your attention span will be short.

Mercury Direct in Taurus for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22nd – August 21st)

For the next few days after the retrograde, Leo should expect clearer communication with work colleagues and your boss. You may feel like you are being pulled in multiple directions at once and unable to make sense of it. You need to give yourself some time to process what is happening in your professional life. If other people are pressuring you to make a decision, take it slow and consider the situation carefully before making a choice.

Mercury Direct in Taurus for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22nd – September 21st)

You are able to think clearly about your goals and what it takes to achieve them so take advantage of this excellent time for studying or researching. Conversations will flow smoothly. You have a highly developed intellect and an excellent ability to express yourself during this period. You are more willing to accept new ideas.

It is a great time to clear up any misunderstandings when it comes to arguments or differences of opinion, so why not use this opportunity and make peace instead? During this time, you are able to act as a mediator for any disputes.

It's a wonderful time for travel or to schedule travel.

Mercury Direct in Taurus for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22nd – October 22nd)

Libra, your mind is clearer and more focused than usual, which makes it easier to tackle planning, research, and strategizing. 

This period incites a desire to bring up issues that can be sensitive, intimate, and personal. During this time, we are not always willing to open up and talk about the things that make us uncomfortable because we feel like no one understands. However, this is a great time to break down those barriers, so that all parties involved can feel heard and understood.

This doesn’t have to be high drama–it’s simply a time to create an environment where people can feel comfortable talking about everything they need or want support with.

Mercury Direct in Taurus for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23rd – November 21st)

This is a mental time for you, Scorpio, with your thoughts taking on more of a life of their own. This period can resolve communication conflicts between you and others as your ego struggles against its expression via communication. This isn't necessarily a bad thing; if handled well, it could make for an interesting conversation.

Your closest relationship and how to communicate better with your partner will be what is on your mind at this time.

Mercury Direct in Taurus for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22nd – December 20th)

Focusing on your well-being will be a priority for you, Sagittarius. Detail will be important. Be alert at the office as well. You might find yourself trapped by other people’s actions, and it’s best to avoid being so. You need to get over with your work and move on straight home without any detours or such.

Mercury Direct in Taurus for a Capricorn (Taurus dates: December 21st – January 18th)

Capricorn, your communication skills are enhanced during this period, so now is the time to focus on solving problems with words rather than weapons. If possible, it's also a good idea to avoid starting conflicts because you can turn others around by using logic and appealing to their better nature.

This is an auspicious period for signing contracts (and making business deals), organizing events, or setting up plans for future action. If single, this is a time to connect with others through conversation and mental pursuits.

Mercury Direct in Taurus for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19th – February 17th)

You may have gone through periods of feeling the need to withdraw from friends and family in order to reflect on what could be better about your relationships, or in order to make them more harmonious by working out any misunderstandings between you and those around you.

This is a good chance for you to review current projects and plans and to prepare for the future, Aquarius. If you are a business owner or entrepreneur, this is your time to shine. Mercury is in Taurus, so it's a time to extend the olive branch to family members.

Mercury Direct in Taurus for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18th – March 19th)

This is a time of great charm for you, Pisces, and you are likely to feel comfortable with yourself and others. If you are constantly researching, writing, or simply learning new things, your creativity will be stimulated. All communications should be pleasant and pleasing to them.

This is an excellent time to learn new skills or study a new subject. Concentration and good mental clarity are possible during this period, as well as communication with others, who are likely to be interested in your thoughts and ideas now.

    Hello, I'm donalding in California. I was elated to get your text message and your challenge to make a video testimonial. I'm at a huge crossroads and starting over and I am the oldest person in the dorms at West Hills College and California. I'm going to study and get smarter and figure a way out of this little mess. I didn't know about Pisces or any of these things coming into my life and I definitely need to avoid bullying. There are and things are going to be just fine. We are interconnected, we are, we are loving, we are not competitive, and we are not.

    Hi, guys. Me and the cat here say hello, Kitty. I think anytime you got a real person that you can see talking to you is better. I think just video in general makes everything better. It's more entertaining, it's easier than reading. So if you do your own fair share of reading, it's good to just be able to listen for a change. So I think it's a good thing. I don't know if I'm answering, really what you wanted me to address, but keep up the good work. I'm enjoying it anyways. Bye, guys. Bye.

    Hello. How you doing? Good morning. I just like to appreciate all the encouraging things and basically, like, being. Hitting everything on in the head, what goes on through my life and everything, you know, I'm a firm believer, and it's just a real blessing to have someone like you all to, you know, with the heads up, with the presence, just everything. And I just wanted to let you know, greatly appreciate of you, you all. And, um, like, I know I have a special calling in life. Just through various things just went on in my life. I could tell. It's like, you know, I haven't been through a lot. I've been through a lot, but I always let my good outweigh my bad, always keep me a positive head. And, you know, I do my best to speak life into my situations instead of doubt and complain most of the time because I know God's got my back regardless, through anything. But I just like to thank you for all you have done. And at times, I may even forget to look on, look on here. But when I do go back and look, I catch what need to be caught, you know, it's just that, you know, it's a busy point in my life right now. Like, it's real busy and. But I still make time through it all. I just like to say I thank you and I appreciate you all for each and everything. And when I do be able to receive the funds and start investing in this and help out, I will. Until then, thank you. I love you. Thank you. Bye.

    Kelli, I have come to RELY upon your dailies (Cancer), especially your unique Rating System! Feel LOST on those rare days when I don't have that going for me! So what has become of your daily "extras"? Are you taking a break and someone is subbing for you lately? I certainly hope that is the case and that you are well! Praying for you, love you! - Lou

    I just want you to know I absolutely love you. I rely on you. If I get rich, I'm taking you with me. I'm going to have you with me every day of my life just because it's kind of weird. It's kind of scary how dead on you are all the time. But you want to know what? I love you. Thank you for finding your way in my life. I love all your emails and everything. And sometimes it scares me and I just try to be like, okay, let me just steer away because I always feel like I'm missing out on something, being occupied by stuff I'd rather not be occupied by, entertaining people and stuff that shouldn't be, getting people blocking my blessings, I guess you'd say. But besides that, I just need to take a leap of faith and just go all in it because I know who I am, what I want and I can't get it when I'm sitting in the house not doing anything because I'm all depressed because of the people that I have, people that suck my energy away. I don't know how to explain it. Just people that front row cheer me on to fail. But seriously, I love you. Thank you. I appreciate you. Bye.

    Hey, Kelly. I am ready. If I had known I was going to be recording this, I would have worn some makeup. So anyway. Oh, that's my vanity speaking. Sorry about that. But anyway, I do love listening to you and I always acquire a lot of knowledge. I've been studying astrology since I was about eleven years old. I love it and I can't get enough of it. But I just wanted to let you know that I loved that quote from Eleanor Roosevelt that you put on there. It's so true. We need to live life while we have it and make the best of it. And astrology will help us lead the way. I'm assured of that. Anything we can learn when it comes to astrology will only help us to live a better life. And by your volunteering all your information, I thank you a million times over. You are such an asset. And I know the stars and the planets are shining down upon you and I listen to you all the time on YouTube and your Zoom channel and have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope your throat feels better. Kelli keeps drinking some hot. Thank you for everything you do. My name is Judith and I'm from Greensboro, North Carolina, and I'm a cancer and I love all of what you have to say. Thank you. Bye.
