Mercury enters Taurus

Mercury, the planet of mind and communication entered Taurus at 10:40 pm on Sunday May 13 AEST. It will reside there until May 30. Here’s my take on how it may express when in that sign:
Mercury thinks slowly and methodically about concrete and practical matters in Taurus. Naturally skeptical, and especially reluctant to take things on faith, this Mercury focuses 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 buying and selling – 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. 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 its sensual qualities of sound, rhythm and texture.
