Beginning today, and straight on till Monday, Mercury will stitch the zodiac’s earthy bits with a measure of water as if to weave a story. The tale will be told from the fixed earth of Taurus, where Mercury is making good time. The story’s arc will begin today with Mercury sextile to Pisces’ own Neptune and conclude on Monday with the same aspect to Neptune’s piscine neighbor, Chiron. In between, Mercury will thread a sequential grand earth trine to a Mars long of Virgo and a Pluto even longer of Capricorn. For the next several days, you may even find some of the same elements woven into your own story.
Fire, earth, air and water — the elements of ancient natural science, are integral to the story of western astrology. Indeed, those elements, arranged in a wheel, provided the scaffold upon which the sky’s patterns and cycles were made intelligible and relevant to life on Earth.
As the planet that most closely corresponds to your mind and its matters, Mercury’s annual trip through Taurus is always an occasion to be mindful of earthly life. That is especially so this year. Mercury’s occupation of Taurus, only a day old, is its first visit to an earth sign since January. That’s a long time for an object that usually moves from one elemental energy field to another every few weeks. Now that the innermost planet has finally come to ground, it’s a favorable opportunity to possess its potential.
Possession is fundamental to what Taurus is. When you are aware of your body as yours, or get a sense of what your body needs, and have the occasion to both comprehend and apprehend the world physically, that’s Taurus talking. With Mercury having attained Taurus, it’s a good time to both attain and express a coherent story that begins and ends with what happens when elemental water supports elemental earth.
