I can only say, there we have been: but I cannot say where. And I cannot say, how long, for that is to place it in time.
– T.S. Eliot
Mercury enters Taurus shortly after midnight EDT on Wednesday morning. It will be an occasion to note. Normally, the innermost planet sprints through a sign in about two weeks, but Mercury has been nowhere but back and forth between the emotional deep blue sea of Pisces and the wild intuitive of fiery Aries ever since Valentine’s Day. You may have found yourself similarly confined over the last three months or so, at least in your thinking. If that is your case, you can look forward to a chance to change your pace, taking your thoughts to a new place, mentally fixing on a different space.
Mercury’s movements most often correspond to those of your mind and its means. Mercury’s ingress to the fixed earth of Taurus will afford a symbolic opportunity to enter a new mental space at long last, a space where you can find yourself through values again, and just in time.
You may perceive yourself to be just confined in time, seemingly hostage to its single direction and unrelenting momentum. You are told that time waits for no one, even that it is the equivalent of money. Occasionally, however, you can get a clue from your own experience that Einstein was correct to conclude that time and space are equivalent. That experience is the mental space of Mercury in Taurus.
You know from your own experience that the apparent pace of time will vary depending on what you are doing and how you feel about it. That experience is a valuable clue which unfortunately is discounted by clocks, the artificial striation of Earth into time zones, and the perception of planets as part of a mechanism. It is difficult to release attachment to such deep conditioning, so deep that you identify with it as though it were life itself, but that is precisely what this particular ingress of Mercury to Taurus is asking you to do. It begins with finding the mental space where your values are alive, well, and as real as your hand in front of your face.
