How You Talk, By Your Zodiac Sign & The Planet Mercury

Everyone has a communication style that's unique. From the cues a person gives when body language is used to the tone of a voice in an argument or with a person that they love, the way you talk says a lot about you, and it also says volumes about how you represent your zodiac sign's personality traits.

Even in astrology, one of the most important planets reveals information about your communication style. The planet Mercury, which rules the zodiac signs Virgo and Gemini, who are considered to be excellent communiators, shows how you are great at getting a point across, too. For example, if a person's natal horoscope has Mercury in Taurus, that person may be good speaking about money or singing for a living. 

If your planet Mercury is in the sign of Gemini, you may be a great journalist or someone who would do well interviewing others in any occupation. Communications is a big part of our lives since so many things depend on this key area. For instance, relationships can break based on a person’s poor communications skills.

Most jobs these days also demand employees to have excellent communications skills. They are actually considered more important than technical skills for certain positions.

Hence, it is important for us to analyze how we communicate so we can figure out how we are coming off to others. By carefully studying how your body language and words are communicated, you can then decide if you need to improve the way that you speak with others to have a better effect in your job or relationships.

Astrology can be of great help in studying one’s communications style. In particular, your Mercury sign affects and shapes the way you communicate much more than any other sign.

Finding out your Mercury sign is not a difficult task. So let’s just dive into the 12 different signs in order to figure out how you communicate based on your Mercury horoscope by zodiac sign.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You can be as witty as they come! In fact, people love you because you always seem to know just what to say to someone. One thing though is that you might find it difficult to stay on one topic for long. You tend to jump from topic to topic because you have knowledge of so many topics!
