Mercury enters Taurus on April 1, 2017

Mercury enters Taurus on Saturday April 1 AEDT. It will turn retrograde in the sign on April 10, re-enter Aries on April 21, turn direct on May 4, then re-enter Taurus on May 16, before finally moving into Gemini on June 7. Here’s my take on how it may express when in Taurus.
Mercury thinks slowly and methodically about concrete and practical matters in Taurus. The focus is on facts and present concerns rather than abstract or theoretical speculation. Blessed with common sense and an aptitude for making money, those with this placement prefer tried and proven strategies like investing in real estate or blue-chip stocks over new or risky approaches. When shopping – a favourite activity for these acquisitive types – they take the time to find the best deal and will not be cajoled into outlaying money before they are good and ready. More non-materialistic types possess the temperament and practical know-how to live a simpler rustic life, surrounded by nature. Short and sweet is their preferred conversational style, which doesn’t preclude a capacity for sustained and concentrated mental effort, as the work of Sigmund Freud and twentieth century philosophers Bertrand Russell and Ludwig Wittgenstein readily demonstrates. On a different note, their voice can have a pleasing mellifluous quality well suited to acting and media work, and they can have a love of language for it’s sensual qualities of sound, rhythm and texture.
