Mercury enters Taurus on the 6th May. Mercury in this Fixed, Earth sign can be associated with common sense, down-to-earth thinking and practical intelligence with an eye on security and self-worth issues. When contrasted in the natal chart, he could turn narrow-minded, stubborn, inflexible and suspicious of new ideas and theories. In all cases he takes his time to make decisions but once made they usually become irrevocable.
Mercury transits are fast. During the planet’s stay in Taurus the speed will be extra fast at 2°+ per day so the following aspects will last less than a day.
