On April 10, 2022 at 9:09pm CST Mercury enters Taurus, but earlier in the day it is going to square Pluto in Capricorn as it zips through the last degrees of Aries. In what ways could you be giving away your power to think your own thoughts, to perceive the world through your own unique lens, to tell your own story? Mercury square Pluto is an opportunity to see where this is happening. Then Mercury moves into Taurus, and though in Taurus for less than three weeks (moves into Gemini on April 29), it is going to make some big aspects:
April 18: Mercury conjunct Uranus at 13° Taurus April 24: Mercury at 23° Taurus conjunct the North Node and in a t-square with Saturn at 23° Aquarius and the South Node at 23° Scorpio April 28: Mercury at 28° Taurus trine Pluto at 28° Capricorn
Mercury in Taurus is a time to literally plant seeds for the ideas and inspirations you had when Mercury was in Aries. If you were inspired to write a book, for example, you would start putting words on the paper (or typing words on the computer). If you had an idea for a podcast, you would research someone you wanted to interview and record your first show. You bring those thoughts into the physical realm. Taurus is the first earth sign. To me, it is also the most physical sign. It is earthy, rooted, grounded, sensual, and practical. Taurus is determined and fixed on its course. Now is the time to orient ourselves towards what is ours to do.
