Start as you mean to go on… Because 2022 certainly will be. After the couple of years we’ve had, you’ll probably be delighted to hear that in just a few days, a brand new year…
When Mercury spins through Taurus, the slow and sensual fixed earth sign of the Zodiac mandala, what does it mean for the collective?
Under this sky, we all tend to connect to the world and to other people through our senses (ahem, make that our common sense!) This means… you’ve got to see it, to believe it!
Slow Right Down...
We can be slower to trust than at other times and take a little longer to grasp concepts and ideas. You’ll likely find you need to mull things over in your mind, try them out in your consciousness, and test a few different versions in your personal dreamscape, before fully investing in what you’re told. Even what you read in a book or watch on the news won’t be taken at face value. So don’t be put out if you’re met with dubious stares when recounting a story that seems quite plausible to you! We're all operating under the same skies!
Conversations often take on a deliberate and meaningful air under this transit. You’ll probably find you need to think carefully about what you saying and how you say it, and so will others. This will slow you all down (especially if you're sitting waiting for emails to be replied to!) But with luck, the thoughtful, genuine approach that this astrological transit evokes will combine to create a gentle trust between you, so long as you’re not swayed by any glib remarks or flippant comments. (So watch that Taurus stubborn streak!)
The energy of Taurus is practical and no-nonsense, so your connections, and the way you soak up information over the next couple of weeks will likely reflect this too.
All About Practicality
Less inclined to sit writing poetry, you’re more likely to enjoy reading how-to-manuals that explain the nuts and bolts of how your new smoothie maker works, and which ingredients are best to combine (which you'll then meticulously try and test to make sure it's actually correct).
And when faced with tough decisions, Mercury in Taurus provides one of the best energy signatures for logically working out the pros and cons and rationally basing the next step on hard evidence, over the whimsy of a hunch.
