The energy representing how you think and communicate, Mercury,  joins Mars in Taurus on April 14th where he will transit before his long transit of Gemini beginning  April 30th.  Mercury brings conscious awareness and potential discussion to the Mars energy of desire, assertiveness and personal will.

The 21st and 22nd are strong days for Mercury when he first trines Pluto signaling a few days of concentration, financial flow, effective planning, and powerful discussion.  On the 22nd he conjuncts Mars in Taurus (16 degrees) supercharging your mental prowess, pragmatic reasoning, communications and travel.  Your words can come across more strongly than you intend on the 22nd.  Others will be expressing themselves more intensely as well - be aware if you are feeling angry or frustrated.

Mercury in Taurus communicates carefully, making sure of each word before saying it.  There is a slowing of your perceptions as your mind retains, steadies and consolidates ideas, this is a down to earth approach to planning and practicality.  Spontaneity is tempered with your desire for a more deliberate understanding.

TAURUS it's a good time for expressing your point of view to people.  You are able to put more of yourself into what you say and your more authentic as a result.  Your mind will be more active and you can accomplish a great deal over the next two weeks.  You may have a strong urge to get out and travel around your town and community.  This can also be a strong period for profitable and interesting negotiations or contractual discussions. ~Clarity of mind

GEMINI is more inclined to keep your opinions to yourself even when you "should" speak up.  You are also more in touch with the hidden aspects of yourself and others as you tune into the subtler aspects of life.  You may feel like withdrawing to think, study, daydream or meditate.  This transit can encourage a period of research or planning done in private. ~Contemplative time

CANCER influences you to think about your goals and personal happiness.  Are your goals really or own or have they been influenced by friends and other people?  You will have more verbal and intellectual exchanges with friends and groups you belong to.  It's a nice time for socializing and discussions.  Thinking about your future is not uncommon and is useful to examine you desires.  ~Increased social discourse

Communications in your outer life may assume greater importance than usual as can paper work, following procedures or travel.  Advertising and contract negotiations should work out favorably.  ~Public communications

VIRGO it's a good time for study, education and intellectual eagerness.  Subjects relating to foreign places, the law, philosophy, publishing, education or higher knowledge will grab your attention.  A trip may be in the cards and if so should be interesting, active and different than the norm.  ~Elevated insights

LIBRA a time of inward reflection and reflecting upon your psychology and getting in touch with your more hidden thoughts, beliefs and feelings.  Exchanges can have a profound effect upon you causing you to make changes in your ways of thinking.  Finances, property and resources held jointly with another are a focus.  ~Transformational dialogue
