To learn how you can apply Taurus mercury’s energy into your individual sign, read more below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, you want to spoil your romantic partner today as Mercury meets Venus in your 2nd house of money and income. You might find yourself planning an all-expenses paid trip somewhere nice, booking VIP tickets to their favorite artist’s concert, or giving them a very luxurious gift. You just have so much love for this person right now that you want to give them everything they could possibly want, and more. However, a gentle reminder that Mercury will soon go retrograde later on this month. Money is a finite resource, dear Aries, and you might find it getting tight when Mercury goes retrograde. It will be best for you to find the perfect balance between treating your romantic partner and saving up for the rainy days.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, Mercury moves into your first house today and you’re empowered to express yourself. You want your opinions heard, and you won’t tolerate those who attempt to shut you out. As it meets Venus in the same house, you would feel as if this is the way you could express love for yourself—by being heard. By communicating your needs and wants, you’re fulfilling yourself. This could be to your family and friends or to a significant other. Channel all this energy now into productivity because when Mercury goes retrograde later on this month, you might feel your energy starting to drain, so enjoy it while it lasts, Taurus.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
When Mercury moves into your 12th house of endings today, you’re overcome with a feeling of bravery to finally end patterns that don’t serve you anymore, Gemini. If it damages you more than it makes you happy, today is a good time to cut those ties. As Mercury meets Venus in the same house, you channel this energy towards your love life as well. It doesn’t necessarily mean ending relationships, it simply means it’s time to finally end toxic patterns in the relationship. If you get passive-aggressive when you and your partner fight, Venus reminds you today that this is not healthy and you must find the will within yourself to stop this behavior. If you’ve been jumping from one relationship to the other without taking a break for yourself, you’re reminded that this is not healthy, either, and you must take some time to bounce back before committing into a relationship.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, it’s time for you to spend some time with your friends today as Mercury breezes toward your 11th house of friendships. If you haven’t seen them in a while, now would be a good time to catch up on each other’s lives. You might have some important things to catch each other up on, such as milestones you recently achieved. When it meets Venus in the same house, you might be reminded to share what’s currently happening in your love life right now with your friends. If you’ve been confused or struggling, talking about it with your friends could be the thing that gives you the clarity that you’ve been looking for. If you’re looking for advice on matters of the heart, your friends might just be the right people who could give you answers.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You’ve always been fierce as a lion, dear Leo, but today, this energy is magnified in your career and status zone as Mercury flies toward your 10th house. You channel this ferocious energy to achieve your goals at work. You won’t let condescending coworkers talk above you or cut you off, and you won’t let anything get in the way of you reaching your goals. Pursuing romance crosses your mind when Mercury meets Venus in the same house, but it’s up to you to choose which one you’d rather focus on right now. Is finding love important right now, or is it more important for you to focus on your career? Whatever you choose, I’m sure you’ll find happiness, Leo, when you follow your heart.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
What do you want in a partner, dear Virgo? Well, when Mercury meets Venus today in your 9th house of intellect, you realize that you want a partner who satisfies you not only physically or emotionally, but also intellectually. You want someone who could match your level of intellect, and to whom you wouldn’t need to translate your thoughts for. Someone who gets your most abstract ideas and even adds onto them, someone who challenges you instead of putting you high up on an intellectual pedestal. If you feel you’ve already found this person, engaging in deep conversation with them might make you fall in love even more. However, if you haven’t met them yet, brace yourself—finding them will be one hell of a journey.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, you’re starting to get more in touch with your sex life today as Mercury meets Venus in your 8th house of sex and intimacy. Right now, you believe that sex is important in your love life, and it is through proper communication that you could get what you need. Whether you’re in a committed relationship right now or casually dating, it would do you good to think carefully about what you want and need, and then communicate it to your partner. Remember, Libra, they’ll keep shooting in the dark and missing if you keep them guessing. The only way they can score is when you finally show them where to aim.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Your love life is blooming today, dear Scorpio, when Mercury meets Venus in your 7th house of relationships. Mercury reminds you that all successful relationships need good communication, which is why you must be willing to open yourself up and share your thoughts and feelings to your partner if you want to strengthen the bond. I know vulnerability is scary, but the only way you can let this person love you is when you let down your walls and show them who you are and what you’ve been through. A person who truly loves you will kiss your scars instead of being repulsed by them, and the only way you can find out is if you try.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, you’re putting yourself first today as Mercury meets Venus in your 6th house of health and well-being. If you’ve recently been hurt, you might not want to get into dating or in a relationship right now and would rather focus on healing and self-improvement. These recent experiences make you think romantic love is not good for you right now, and it’s completely fine. There are still other types of love, and it doesn’t always have to be romantic. However, hope still remains in your heart that one day, you will be able to try again—that the person you’re looking for is still out there, waiting for you to finally be ready.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’ve always been a skeptic, Capricorn, but today, you might be up for a little romance when Mercury meets Venus in your 5th house of love and romance. If you’re single, you might want to put yourself out there to try to meet someone new, to flirt and enjoy the thrill of the chase. You might even want to reignite old flames. If you’re in a committed relationship, this romantic energy makes you want to bring back some spark into the relationship by going on a romantic date. Whether you want to take them on a picnic date in a beautiful garden or have dinner at a luxurious restaurant, the sky’s the limit for how romantic you’re willing to go, dear Capricorn. Don’t feel ashamed for expressing romantic emotions—just let yourself enjoy them while they last.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Home is where your heart is today, Aquarius, when Mercury settles into your 4th house of home and family. If you’re in a relationship and you haven’t seen your partner for a while, you might be craving the feeling of coming home to their warm embrace. Right now, you’re bursting with love in your heart, and there’s nothing you want more than to tell them just how much you love them. If you’re single, coming home to your loved ones—whether these are friends or family—might recharge your romantic energy. The way these people love you will remind you what you’re looking for in a partner, and how they validate your thoughts and opinions when you share them will let you know that this is also the kind of energy you’re looking for in a relationship.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, your communication skills are at their peak right now when Mercury moves into your 3rd house of communication. When it meets Venus in the same house, you’re given the opportunity to speak your romantic desires into life. If you’re single and you have a crush, now would be a good time to let them know how you feel due to the clarity brought about by these planetary motions. If you’re in a relationship, it is a good time to talk with your partner about relationship issues that need to be resolved. Use this clarity to improve your relationships, Pisces, and you’ll come out happier, less confused, and more content in the end.
