Mercury in Taurus

Mercury in Taurus

Mercury entered Taurus a while back, got up to a certain point, stood “still,” then appeared to move backwards. What it really means, the term “Retrograde,” or “Mercury in retrograde?” It means our position, here on Planet Earth, relative to where Mercury’s orbit takes him? It looks like the planet is moving in a manner not consistent with the rest of the starry firmament, the direction the rest of the heavens appears to spin.

Is it bad? See what Hamlet said, Nothing’s good or bad but thinking makes it so.

As such, there’s no need to panic because Mercury is Retrograde.

Taurus is a fixed, earth sign. Some would say, “Stubborn,” although, I prefer tenacious, stealthy, and sensual as terms for the Bull.

Your mileage may vary.

As a sort of halfway point in the year, and the middle of this year’s all earth sign Mercury Retrograde Pattern, time to pause and assess previous course corrections. At least one will let me know, it was a Mars Minute, it was more like a “coarse correction.” Not really the same thing.

Well met, my masters: how now? What’s the news?
And wherefore are ye laden thus with stuff?
What, is it quarter-day that you remove,
And carry bag and baggage too

    French. in (Shakespeare’s)
    Edward III Act 3, scene 2

Edward III, or, its full title, The Reign of Edward III is part of the Shakespeare apocrypha, but as I listened to the play a second, maybe a third time? It was easy to hear what would be bits and pieces of sonnets and a foreboding of The Tragedy of Richard III. Some of the early eloquence, clearly heard in parts of Henry VI, there, too.

Bag and Baggage

Bag and Baggage

Saturn in Sagittarius — especially for me — has to include some notion of “bag and baggage,” and then, this Mercury Retrograde in Taurus? Revisiting those presumed lessons.

There’s nothing to fear with a Mercury in Retrograde, but there were some lessons worth revisiting. Like listening to a version of a supposed Shakespeare play, then watching the modern–day scholarly pundits fight about it.
