Mercury stations retrograde in Taurus in the later part of April, just as Eclipse Season begins. No need to worry about it but it’s always best to plan accordingly which is something Mercury in Taurus is generally good for.
Mercury entered the sign of Taurus on April 3rd and will enter Gemini on June 11th. Mercury enters its shadow* on April 7th *where it will station direct on May 15th but won’t turn retrograde until the 21st of April.
If you have major moves to make, contracts to sign, or purchase to make, best to make them during the first week of April or wait til the later part of May.
Otherwise, lots can be done while Mercury is in Taurus, even during its retrograde which should be especially good for restructuring basics in your life, prepping gardens, managing available resources, renovating and getting your hands dirty although things may progress more slowly than anticipated. (There is such a thing as Taurus rhythm so take heed!)
On a mundane level we are almost guaranteed to see themes related to money, investments, food security, resources and the fear of scarcity take the forefront in the next few months especially with Mars in Cancer. We may be prompted to assess resources well into the month of May and it’s a good time to work on your garden, rethink expanses, DE-HOARD and manage your assets.
To understand how this retrograde may show up for you, look to the house where Taurus sits in your chart and more extensively the houses that Mercury rules (Gemini and Virgo) If you are born with Mercury in the first 15 degrees of Taurus, this retrograde will be more significant and if you are born with Mercury retrograde in your birth chart, this period may be more progressive for you!
