Mercury in Taurus:

Cautious Energy for Better Decisions

While Mercury was transiting Aries, the intellectual speed dial was turned up to the max and decisions were made at lightning speed, for better or for worse. With little thought for the detail or the consequences, we made choices that just seemed like the right thing to do.

With Mercury now moving into Taurus from April 3rd, 2023 through June 11th, 2023,  however, it’s a very different story.

This is an extra long Mercury cycle as Mercury will turn retrograde in Taurus at 15 degrees on April 21st. It will move direct at 6 degrees on May 14th, 2023.

This astrological transit ushers in a period of quieter, calmer thinking. Taurus energy is slow and cautious, and we can expect to feel as though we have more time to make decisions during this transit.

No longer having to make choices on the fly, we’ll be better able to prioritize and to plan ahead.

The flip side to this is that sometimes Mercury in Taurus energy can be too slow, intellectually. We may agonize over decisions for far too long, mulling every possible scenario, only to discover that the moment of opportunity has been missed.

Strategy is very much a Taurus thing, so a Mercury in Taurus transit can be a very strong business period, good for accounting as well as for strategic vision and long-range planning.

In our personal lives too, this is a good planning period, although we must be careful not to become so focused on the planning that nothing practical actually gets done!

Taurus energy is very kind, so when Mercury transits Taurus, our words lose the harsh edge of Mercury in Aries, and we start to find softer, gentler ways to get our points across.

As a zodiac sign, Taurus is sympathetic and gentle, and when Mercury transits Taurus, our communication styles often follow suit.

Note however that Taurus is a Fixed sign, famous for its stubbornness, so it’s easy to become set in our intellectual ways during a Mercury in Taurus transit.

Whatever we think, whether it’s right or wrong, is not going to change any time soon. People can be very opinionated during this transit, and quite dogmatic too.

As a zodiac sign, Taurus builds, so when Mercury transits Taurus, it’s a good time to build or to work on intellectual and communication skills.

Studying in general is well starred during this transit, and revision tends to be easier than normal. A burst of good memory favors those taking tests or exams, and it may be simpler to make a good first impression in a work interview.

There’s a good undercurrent of creativity and imagination, as well as tenacity and sticking power, so this is a good transit for those who are writing a book, embarking on a long and difficult project, or trying to get something creative off the ground.

Communication when Mercury transits Taurus can sometimes take its own sweet time. Nobody’s in a hurry to respond to emails or important messages, and it’s okay to take time to craft your message just right.

Social media may seem slightly slower during this transit too, making us less likely to hit “post” and then instantly regret it.

In marketing, Mercury’s transit of Taurus can be a good time to work on a social media strategy, in fact, as there’s an inherent understanding here of what people like and what makes them feel good, without being insincere or fake

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

Mercury transiting your finance zone urges you to give some thought to how to increase your income, Aries. You’ve got bright ideas and plenty of ambition – use this practical energy to actually get something started now.

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

Mercury transiting your own sign gives you free reign to plan ahead and to manage your time as you see fit, Taurus. This is a great period to map out your year ahead, or to declare your undying love for someone – your communication skills are great.

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

With Mercury now transiting your most spiritual zone, Gemini, you might want to investigate the strange coincidences you keep noticing. This is an excellent time for inviting synchronicity into your life, and for manifesting your dreams.

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

Time to step up and take the lead in a group, Cancer? If you’re tired of someone else not getting the job done, do it yourself. Whether it’s a social group or club of some kind or just your own tribe of friends, you know what needs to be done now.

Mercury in Taurus for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 22)

This Mercury transit activates your career zone, Leo, and brings you the gift of communication. It should be very easy now for you to charm your way up the career ladder – and you can back up that charm with real knowledge and skills too.

Mercury in Taurus for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 23 – September 22)

With Mercury transiting your travel zone, brush up on your foreign language skills, Virgo. Just for fun, even if they’re not useful to you on your travels or at work until after the quarantine. Your ability to converse with others is a huge asset right now, so don’t waste it.

Mercury in Taurus for a Libra (Libra dates: September 23 – October 22)

Beware of creating arguments over nothing in a relationship, Libra. Mercury transit Taurus activates your jealousy, which is quite unlike you – and you may feel very suspicious of others during this transit. Try to keep an open mind.

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

The Mercury in Taurus transit focuses on your communication in love, Scorpio.

Now is the time to let your sweetheart know exactly how much you care, as you can speak from the heart and with the utmost sincerity and truth.

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

Mercury in Taurus enables you to plan ahead, Sagittarius, which is not something you normally do.

Take advantage of this energy and get your year mapped out. When you have a route to follow, your journey becomes much easier.

Mercury in Taurus for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 19)

Mercury transiting your fellow earth sign Taurus brings a lot of fun into your life, Capricorn.

This is an excellent period for partying, catching up with friends, dating and meeting new people or simply chilling out. Do more of what makes you smile.

Mercury in Taurus for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 20– February 17)

Within the family, communication is vital now. Keep talking, Aquarius, even when – especially when – other family members are being difficult or obstructive.

You’ll know what to say to soothe the situation. Don’t allow situations to escalate.

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

The Mercury in Taurus transit is excellent for you, Pisces, as it enables you to keep busy and it also provides a rational basis against which you can measure your darker fears.

Being able to see things more objectively helps you to avoid worry and upset.

    I first discovered Kelli Fox back in 2010, maybe earlier. Back then I would read my horoscope from many different vendors for fun. Kelli's horoscopes were so right on, it made my skin tingle! Her word selection and insight truly resonates. I stopped reading others and only check my horoscope on the Kelli Fox website. Kelli, I don't know how you do it, but your site has helped me more than you may know. Thank you
