Harmony between Mercury and Venus (with Venus in a Mercury-ruled sign) is the ideal influence for creative words that fizz with beautiful/romantic possibilities. Attractive ideas will flow, and charm will be floating around everywhere. Great if you want to reach out, engage in some no-strings flirting or just have an enjoyable conversation.
However, Pallas in Venus-ruled Taurus is challenged by Mercury - light communication may not be enough to express a more substantial strategy. Pallas in Taurus is the real pattern/solution you can rely on, while Mercury's jumping around and trying to impress. Is there a bedrock strategy that you need to focus on? Maybe the abundance of pretty choices is distracting. Or, maybe your solution is stagnant, and needs a creative flourish. Consider the gulf between where your feet are planted and the sparkling lights above you.
