Mercury is Retrograde April 9th 2017 (Taurus) – May 3rd 2017 (Aries)

During these days, Mercury Retrograde will be in the sign of Taurus from April 9th until April 20th before moving back into Aries on April 21st.  When Mercury is retrograde in Taurus, it will be an excellent time to slow down, turn inward and determine what you need to feel more stable and secure.  You’ll be encouraged to be more thoughtful and deliberate in your actions and it will be an especially good time to finish up creative projects.

Because the retrograde energy will have a slowing effect, you’ll need to employ patience during these days.  It’s likely that plans will be cancelled or rescheduled and circumstances may arise that impede your progress.  You’re being called to be more thorough in your work and take the time to “smell the roses.”  By working with this energy, you can take advantage of down time to enjoy yourself with loved ones and live more consciously in the moment.  You’ll be most successful when you can balance calm and methodical work habits with time to relax and indulge in the pleasures of life.

You may be rethinking a current long-term goal and reawakening your creativity.  It’s possible that the fast pace of your daily life has distracted you from something you love to do.  The first part of this Mercury retrograde cycle will be a wonderful time to rededicate yourself to music, art, dance or other creative endeavors that feed your soul.  If you’ve had some of your creative dreams on the back burner, this can be a time to steer back towards your goals.

Your best bet is to avoid any tendencies to allow rigid belief systems to act as blinders to opportunity.  When you can relax and be flexible to changing circumstances, it will be easier to make the most of this time period.  You’re scheduled to change what you value and will learn to dedicate time and effort towards your top priorities.  You can gain more security and self-confidence as you build on your past and make strategies for the future that allow for slow, consistent growth.
