MERCURY IN TAURUS: APRIL 26-JULY 2ND
Mercury finally got out of of Aries last Sunday and Virgos and Geminis can finally get major relief going into a friend’s sign. If you were born with Mercury in Taurus, you have good creative writing and reasoning abilities are clear happy, love reading and writing and speaking and love being with deep thinkers. This placement creates good humor, generosity and lover of the arts.
The Shakti of Taurus is that it gives power to bring wealth, social success, prosperity and enjoyment. For Vedic lovers, it is connected to Krishna. Keyword to remember here is Blessings and it is easy to remember the blessings of Venus who brings material prosperity to us. Planets placed in Taurus in any part of the chart bring blessings.
Taurus is a sign, which is very stubborn, but planets going through there benefit from wealth, social status and prosperity and this is of course dependent on your larger cycles. Mercury does better with transit through the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th and 10th and 11th houses from the natal moon or ascendant. So if you have moon or rising sign as Aries, Cancer, Aquarius, Sagittarius, Libra or Leo it will be a good transit for you in context to the major dasha period and minor period that you are running. Still I think Virgos will do well with this transit through 9th house of foreign travel and spirituality and good luck and good fortune while Geminis will have to watch expenditures but need to focus on service and donations and commitment in marriage to bring out the highest energies.
Mercury goes retrograde in Taurus May 10-June 3rd and that is why it has such a long stay. Taurus rising and Virgo rising will enjoy it the most but Scorpios will have to deal with relationship issues with a long 7th house transit of Mercury while Leos will thrive at work and with status.
Mercury Combustion and Understanding Combustion.
Mercury will be retrograde and combust between May 13-May 29th. What does this mean? At various times of the year, planets in the sky may fall behind the Sun and may not be visible due to the blinding energies of the Sun. This is called combustion or not visible in the sky. Retrograde combustion is not a problem so we will not have issues with it in May. In transit, the Mercury combustion in May is not a difficult event. Still it may be felt a little most intense May 20-May 23rd when Mercury and the Sun are within 2 degrees of each other and this can create a busy and buzzy mind.
