Mercury Retrograde in Taurus April 9 -May 3, 2017: A Time of Reflection

The April-May 2017 Mercury retrograde is nothing to fear, it is simply a time of reflection and a time to pull up the weeds that are blocking you from seeing and communicating your truth. -Intuitive Astrology

Venus is in Retrograde until April 15th, and now Mercury is in retrograde April 9- May 3, 2017.

Interestingly enough, Mercury Retrograde is in Taurus. Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus. In addition, a full moon in Libra on April 10th will emerge and Libra is also ruled by Venus.


Venus is in full retrograde! This means humanity suffers from a lack of love. The lack emerges from a lack of love for ourselves and a lack of love and compassion towards others.

Mercury rules communication and Venus rules love and relationships. Therefore, communication in love and relationships will get complicated.

When Venus goes retrograde with Mercury, the universe is telling us that the way we COMMUNICATE our love must be re-evaluated.

Are you telling the truth of who you are and what you want from your heart? Or are you too logical, too analytical and too cerebral to communicate your heart’s desires when it comes to love, career, extended family and friends.

Mercury Retrograde is known to confuse, scramble and complicate communication in other areas too. It causes electronic disruption, equipment failure and accidents.

Some of the fun things you can look forward to during Mercury Retrograde include misunderstandings, mistakes, and disruptions related to listening, speaking, learning, reading, editing, researching, negotiating, selling, buying, travel, shipping, and anything related to computers and phones.


Mercury Retrograde in Taurus means that it is best you strictly adhere to your budget and refrain from shopping sprees and major purchases. Taurus rules money and the 5 senses so you may be tempted to indulge but do not give in. If you do give in, you will amass debt or buy into a scam that could rip you off several hundred dollars…

For your best chance of having a smooth Mercury Retrograde, don’t make any important moves, sign any contracts, or launch a new endeavor. Miller also writes that it’s not a good time to have any type of elective surgery because doctors are affected by the retrograde too.

Unfinished business emerges – Ex-boyfriends and girlfriends will contact you, old debts re-emerge and any issue that was not resolved will reach a full karmic circle demanding your full attention.

Mercury Retrograde forces us to tie up loose ends and gain closure so that we can move on to better things when it goes direct again. I like to refer to it as Spring cleaning! In with old, out with the new.

Nothing is quite what it seems…


If you accept a new job, the position will not match the original job description. If you meet a new person while Mercury is in Retrograde they are not who they appear to be. If you buy a house, you may get surprised with hidden loan terms when you go to the closing to sign the title.

This is a time of reflection so do not make any major moves. Instead, look within and develop a plan so that when Mercury goes direct you can execute it with confidence.


One thought on “Mercury Retrograde in Taurus April 9 -May 3, 2017: A Time of Reflection

  1. Well, tried to tie up loose ends with my ex so that I could get answers to my unanswered questions etc and sort out any misunderstandings during Venus and mercury retrograde April 2017. Problem is that it all turned into a big mess and we never even got to talk. I am exhausted from it all and have given myself a hard time for maybe making mistakes in my approach?? All my intentions where purely good but I was totally misunderstood and am now left wondering what it was all about and feel like there’s still unresolved stuff stopping me from moving on with my life. I still love her to bits and would have maybe confessed my feelings if we had actually got to meet up face to face and would have accepted wherever the cards fell. There have been so many misunderstandings that I wanted to sort out to put both our mind’s at rest. I wasn’t very on the ball when I was trying to arrange a meet up and feel like I’ve made some mistakes that I’ll never get over.
    Any advice would be great fully accepted. Thank you. Mark.
