This is your time, Taurus. Mercury in Taurus allows you to set your priorities in order and garner what you need to get things done correctly. If you've never used a journaling practice, this may be a great time to try it. Memorize one positive quote for the week. For priority items, give yourself due dates and deadlines.

Your memory can be a benefit, but it can also be a negative when you focus too long on the past. Now that Mercury is in Taurus, you can see old, negative memories fade and be replaced by positive ones. If some are important to you, write them down and keep them where you can retrieve them easily. You may want to have your thoughts recorded to keep a note of how far you've come in life. During this time, you could change your opinion about a particular person. Be careful not to allow toxic individuals back into your life if they reach out.

It's nice to keep in touch with old friends. You might want to send someone a letter in the mail or drop a postcard to a friend who lives in another country. If you prefer texting or a direct message, send something lighthearted and fun. It's wonderful to be able to keep in touch with people who used to be a part of your life. They would love to know you're thinking of them. This is also a great time to connect with old business associates, or if you're in sales, accounts that have gone silent to drum up new deals.

Is it time to renegotiate a business contract? With Mercury in Taurus, you may be curious about the company's various benefits to employees. If you're about to sign anything new for work, ask questions. Mercury supports taking your time to search for answers and gather information. This is a good day to submit requests for time off or propose to improve your department. If you recently started a business and need to do some important paperwork, the next few weeks will highly support your professional productivity for brochures, web copy, and emails.

If you prefer to spend time indoors, watch a new biography, or binge on a series you've wanted to see that is both intellectual and emotionally stimulating.

You can figure this out. Financial problems can require crafty solutions. You don't want to get stuck thinking things will never get better when they will. Maybe there's an angle you can figure out that you did not see. You can call your credit card companies to see if they have programs to help you or if you can get help from a financial advisor or strategist from a bank. Talk to friends, and don't quit trying to sort things out.

Creativity is such a wonderful thing to possess, and while Mercury is getting comfortable in Taurus, you may find yourself interested in things you don't typically go for, like poetry, spoken word events, or even just hearing the melodic sound of a partner's voice. This is a good time to start a new project that could involve media, videos or podcasting. If you prefer to consume media more than make it, find influencers who educate you and entertain you simultaneously. Go for things that cover cooking or home organization.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)


There's no place like home, and if there were ever an excuse for driving by your old house or taking a trip to your home town, Mercury in Taurus would be it. Mercury can bring out your mellow side and have you wishing you could return to redo a few things. Try to take the good from the past and use it for the future; learn from things that didn't go as planned and then let it go since you can't take it with you any further.

Get everyone on the same page. With Mercury in Taurus, the pressure is on for you to be a high-level communicator. Practice active listening, and learn how to study the art of language and its meaning. You can begin through the process of observation. Don't be afraid to ask others for feedback, especially from people you work with. You may find it helpful to take notes at the end of the day for what worked and what did not.
