The main astro headline of the week is Mercury shifting into thoughtful Taurus, helping us to find logical and careful solutions to problems. Probably just as well, because a major opposition between Mars and Jupiter stretches improbability to its very limits – exaggeration and impossible promises abound.

Mercury in Taurus means slow, deliberate speech with few words. However, Mercury in Taurus says what it means and means what it says, and it doesn’t care whether or not you agree. That’s why a surprising number of outspoken people have Mercury in Taurus. When Mercury, the planet of communication, moves into the stubborn yet sensual sign of Taurus, the theme is straight shooting and letting the listener take it as they will.

Mercury in Taurus is about direct communication and economy of words. This is a great time to address the elephant in the room, both in your personal life and in the outer world. Things that are normally taboo can be addressed now, and not ignored or swept back under the rug. Public declarations made during Mercury in Taurus are not soon forgotten. They become material to all the things that follow.

Mercury in Taurus is also when it’s easier to practice prudence or the virtue of being cautious with what you say. Mercury in Taurus understands that sometimes, speaking doesn’t make anything any better, and that silence can vastly improve a situation. Thus, Mercury in Taurus teaches us to wait to speak and to use silence as a form of communication.

 

 

ARIES

Clear communication is essential if misunderstandings are to be avoided. Someone may want to twist what you say and someone else may only hear what they want to hear. Deal with both issues by employing absolute clarity.

 

—————————————————————————————-

TAURUS

Your natural caution may stand in the way of opportunity. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone, because that’s the only way you can grow. However tempting it is to say no, trying saying yes and see what happens.

 

—————————————————————————————-

GEMINI

Look carefully at your closest relationship and the way you communicate to your sweetheart. There needs to be more honesty and transparency. Share your hopes, dreams, fears and wishes without holding anything back.

 

—————————————————————————————-

CANCER

You’ve been strong for a long time, but it’s OK to need help with your mental health. Take the chance now to talk to a therapist or counselor or to open up to a close friend. Talk about what’s bothering you, so that you can begin to heal.

 

—————————————————————————————-

LEO

There’s a risk-taking element to the week which half excites you and half terrifies you! Should you or shouldn’t you, will you or won’t you? Instead of going around in circles trying to make a decision, follow your heart and take that leap.

 

—————————————————————————————-

VIRGO

Balancing home life and work is not easy at the best of times, but you may have to contend with other people’s unrealistic expectations too. Be firm about how much you can achieve. You can’t keep driving yourself into the ground.

 

—————————————————————————————-

LIBRA

There’s diplomacy and then there’s outright lies. Watch out for a tendency to only say what someone wants to hear. That’s not helping them or you in the long run. Be honest – as tactful as you like, but still honest. It’s time for some plain truths.

 

 

—————————————————————————————-

SCORPIO

Financial issues are heavily linked to emotions, so if you’re in debt it’s not surprising that you may feel down. Talk to an advisor; you’re not alone and there are always solutions. Take proactive, positive steps to start resolving the situation.

 

—————————————————————————————-

SAGITTARIUS

Romance is in the air, but are your feet firmly on the ground? Someone over-promises and under-delivers. Don’t be taken in by a pretty face telling tall tales. Have fun by all means but understand where this is – and isn’t – going.

 

—————————————————————————————-

CAPRICORN

Listen more to your intuition. You’re a highly logical sign but some things have to be felt, they can’t be written down, added up or sensibly explained. Pay attention to your gut and to your inner senses. They won’t let you down.

 

—————————————————————————————-

AQUARIUS

Avoid group think if at all possible. Step beyond the crowd and make your own decisions. It’s true that great minds think alike, but it’s also true that mob mentality is a dangerous thing. Stand alone and do your own thing.

 

—————————————————————————————-

PISCES

Career pressure puts you in the spotlight and you may feel uncomfortable or out of your depth. Persevere and don’t give in. This has happened for a reason and you’re more capable than you think. Put on the spot, you’ve got what it takes.
