MERCURY IN TAURUS: APRIL 3 - JUNE 10
Taurus moves slowly this month — it's a methodical and grounded influence that offers pragmatic problem-solving and common sense. Mercury calls our attention to the sensory world, inviting us to chill, relax and enjoy life to the fullest. In Taurus, Mercury is guided by Venus — which brings pleasure, partnership and togetherness. There is a reduced interest in hustling and being on the go, so it's time to lean into slowing down and enjoying being still. Taking time to relax is key in maintaining peace throughout your life.
MERCURY RETROGRADE IN TAURUS AT 15 DEGREES: APRIL 21 - MAY 14
On April 21, Mercury will retrograde in this sign, bringing a period of reassessments to where you seek the most comfort, security and stability. At this time, finally, our minds can settle down after the hectic Aries season. Aries Season brings up a lot, so it's important to indulge in this retrograde in a way that allows us to catch up. This retrograde cycle allows us to complete projects and get organized. Mercury retrograde always brings glitches; this retrograde demands us to ground, rest and reassess our values.
