Sometimes we get so concerned with the past and future that we forget all about the present moment. And that's really all we ever have! Taurus energy reminds us to be fully in our bodies as a way to become more present.
Taurus is about values. Mercury going retrograde in this sign (during Taurus season, as this is also where the Sun is now) can mean that we are looking more closely at what it is that we really value. Becoming more present can assist in this process, as we can get closer to how we actually feel about things. Most of us are by now getting some strong messages about direction in life: obstacles, shifts in plans, changing relationships, etc. Is the way that we are living aligned with what we value? Are we feeling valued? Are the energies that we are putting out bringing in energies of equal value?
The Prince of Disks says to take things one step at a time. Take action, but don't spaz out expecting everything to happen at once. The uncertainty of the times can be managed by being here now.
