The planet Mercury , influencing the speed of thinking and the success of self-expression, falling into the sign of the calm hedonist Taurus, slows down the rotation and makes the native very careful in his statements. At the same time, having carefully considered his personal point of view, the owner of Mercury in Taurus will stand his ground, like a partisan hero under interrogation.
It is impossible to intimidate or bribe him, because this position of the planet is one of the most stubborn in the zodiacal circle. However, it is possible that after a few weeks, after analyzing the conversation, having read a lot of additional information, the native will change his mind or compromise, but demanding instant metamorphoses from him is useless – you can make a long-term enemy. If you have a long-term relationship in your plans, you need to know well the specifics of the thought process of this rationalist with a subtle artistic soul.
Features of thinking
Even in childhood, it is noticeable that the owner of Mercury in Taurus hardly learns and remembers new knowledge, and is forced to spend twice as much time doing homework as his peers. Natural diligence and lofty goals will help him not to lag behind, but we must remember that it will always take time for the information to be deposited and formed into a clear system. But then the memory will preserve the facts for a long time, which will help in studies in high school and university.
The native is not very talkative, except for financial topics. He will be delighted to support the conversation about shopping, exchange rates, as well as prices in the best restaurants in the city. Practicality and enjoying material goods are the keys to his mind.
You should also take into account the general features of the carriers of Mercury in Taurus, manifested depending on the strength of the position of the planet:
- attentive and benevolent interlocutor, patiently listening to any confused speech;
- conservative in convictions and faithful life partner – will prefer the well-known “old” (except for the position in the 5th house ) to the temptation of novelty ;
- a trained memory stores everything heard, and every word of the enemy will be used by the native in response speech;
- lover of good jokes, because he himself with humor on “you”, and also appreciates art and beauty;
- a gourmet who prefers to rest in luxurious comfortable hotels over camping trips;
- loves exquisite and expensive things, but is stingy;
- a developed sense of profit, which a person can easily confirm with detailed arguments, helps to make a career in the business sphere;
- will never admit mistakes and will bend his line, even if all the facts are against.
The struck Mercury in Taurus requires astrological adjustments, as it gives rise to a gloomy slow-witted, prone to foul language and vulgar antics, ready to do anything for the sake of money.
Male and female
A woman with Mercury in Taurus is a calm and charming companion who listens more and occasionally inserts compliments or simple phrases, unless the conversation concerns her firm beliefs. Here she is able to act as an ardent arguer, which happens quite rarely, because Mercury in the kingdom of Venus encourages to seek beauty in communication and see the world through the eyes of a vis-a-vis.
The girl will eagerly support the conversation about shopping and cosmetic procedures, as well as about the prospects for her profession, which, as a rule, has been chosen since childhood. The spectrum of manifestation of her sociability is wide – prudence, generosity, modesty, tight-fistedness, coquetry, in her you can see any manifestation of sensuality, depending on the situation.
A man with Mercury in Taurus in his youth is a female lover, although he does not differ in the ability to flirt subtly, however, having chosen a beloved, he remains faithful to family ties. It is easy to conquer it – it is enough to be well-groomed and stylish, as well as to cook deliciously. The native does not set a leadership position as a goal, he is comfortable in the position of a performer, if only to receive a high salary that allows him to live in comfort. The position of the planet is favorable for practicing handicrafts, especially jewelry making.
Retrograde and important aspects with planets
If the native's Ascendant is in the signs of Fire and Air, this balances the slowness of the thought process with an orator's gift and the ability to clothe a ripe thought in elegant words, which is evident in the example of A. Pushkin and O. de Balzac.
Mercury retrograde in Taurus, on the contrary, makes it difficult to apply knowledge and experience in practice: the native writes on the table, spreading his thoughts along the tree, with difficulty analyzing the accumulated information. It is difficult for him to part with his usual way of life, even for the sake of brilliant prospects. New acquaintances and work are frightening, especially if there is an opposition or conjunction of Mercury in Taurus with Saturn, which also gives the slowness of speech.
Sextiles and trines with:
- By the sun – a vivid imagery of thinking, the ability to own a word and not lose confidence during forced pauses;
- Uranus – the ability to apply intellectual abilities in an unusual way and stand out from the crowd;
- Venus – a good income thanks to communication in the field of art and literature, a beautiful voice, vocal talent.
To develop flexibility in thinking, the native should read more, study psychology and communicate with different types of people.
Taurus' speech and manner of thinking is leisurely and completely deliberate. You are not susceptible to a quick change of point of view if there is no reason for it. People born with Mercury under the sign of Taurus in the natal chart are determined, practical, methodical, and conservative in most cases, while being patient and going through with everything. They are characterized by a slower assimilation of the material in comparison with other people, but as soon as the idea becomes clear to them, it will never be forgotten. You hate being forced or rushed into making a decision or action, especially if you do not have time to think and evaluate the practical aspects of the situation.
If something comes to Taurus's mind – this is for a long time and it will take a long time to refuse it, since perseverance is one of your best qualities. You like to support what others have already started, especially if you can see tangible and practical results. You love to build and are successful not so much because of your mental ability as your ability to focus and lead a project from start to finish. Perhaps you have artistic or musical talent, perhaps singing or performing for a living. Common sense is not uncommon for you.
