Mercury enters Taurus on May 6th at 2:25 pm EDT. Information and communication is focused on what’s real and immediate. Solid, simple ideas have value - proof is essential. Values are put into words. Don’t waste your time with complicated decisions. Keep it straightforward and start with the basics - you can build from there.
Usually this transit would indicate a slower-moving flow of information that becomes fixed. But Mercury’s upcoming conjunction to Uranus ensures that will not happen. What you planned may be turned on its head.
Mercury in Taurus’ first aspect (also on May 6th) is a sextile to Black Moon Lilith in Pisces. Newly emerging, taboo issues of female power, emancipation, victimization or sexuality are gently grounded with a few words of introduction. Lilith is a given a voice that draws attention to her, and it’s quiet (at first). But sometimes you don’t need to shout to be heard. Keep in this in mind if you want to speak about something that’s normally uncomfortable or unusual. This is one or two phrases spoken calmly, with impact.
