Retrograde and important aspects with planets

If the  Ascendant of individuals 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: such people write on the table, spreading their thoughts along the tree, with difficulty analyzing the accumulated information. It is difficult for them to part with their 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, individuals should read more, study psychology and communicate with different types of people.
