Get ready to give up your gift of gab -- at least for a while. Chatty Mercury moves into slow-and-steady Taurus on April 5, but he'll turn retrograde there on April 28!

When moving direct, speedy Mercury, planet of communication, finds a more sturdy environment in earthy Taurus. This period is one in which solid values, concrete ideas and practical perspectives are likely to take on greater significance for all of us.

Slow down yourself with wise and reliable guidance from a Celtic Cross Tarot reading.

Mercury generally excels at flexibility, but Taurus is arguably the least flexible of all the zodiac signs. We may find ourselves digging in and taking rigid positions when opposed by different ideas, concepts or facts at this time. It's vital that we not lose our ability to stay open-minded to overcome Taurean resistance to whatever is new or different.

Practicality gets things done

Ideally, Mercury in Taurus connects us with the earthy realities that will nurture the growth and development of our ideas. Taurus offers a rich soil of values and commitment that can provide resources to carry thoughts from conception to birth. Slow, careful conversations enable us to consider alternatives without ever losing sight of fundamental values and underlying practical issues.
