Mercury’s direct now at 2 Taurus.
Well, what did you learn the last three weeks about why you do what you do? What did you see about your motivations for doing anything you do?
The ideal is that you gained clarity into where your motivations might be questionable or a little out of alignment with you as a whole. If you learned this it was probably through Mercury-related snafus and your reactions to machinery and other tech breaking down or not working the way you want to or expected.
Did you find yourself insisting that something was worth getting done? Did you commit at all costs to seeing something through no matter what it took?
Did you find yourself letting go of any goals because it wasn’t worth it in the face of tech issues? Did you find yourself reorienting your priorities and leaving some things behind?
Mercury retros are for seeing into and thinking through things in new ways. Taurus is about getting back to basics and figuring out what is truly worth our time and attention.
Take what you saw in how things were working differently and whatever frustration you might have had to tell you what’s really important to you now. What changed during Mercury’s retrograde involved a temporary shift in your perceptive abilities. You could see into things in new ways and therefore learn more about yourself.
What you decided was important is what is now important.
So, what’s next? What’s truly important to you?
