A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Mercury in Taurus, so the description given here may change for you if your Mercury is although in the sign of Taurus but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets.
So, lets see what Mercury can do in Taurus without any conjunction or aspect from any other planet. 1st lets see what these 2 things represent --
Mercury represents communication skills, marketing, calculative ability, younger siblings, hobbies, skills with hands, intelligence, quick decision making, logical thinking, youthfulness etc.
Taurus is the 2nd sign of zodiac belt, so it represents many things related with 2nd house of horoscope like, Hoarded Wealth, Assets, Savings, Finances, Luxuries and Liquid Money. All in all a sign related with luxuries and all the conveniences of life. Taurus is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras, i.e. Krittika, Rohini and Mrigshira. Also, Taurus' lord is Venus.
As Mars represents energy and action & wherever it goes in horoscope, it takes our energy there. Likewise, now Mercury is communication and wherever it goes, it will make person interested about communicating in that particular field. So, now Mercury is in the sign of Taurus, which is sign ruled by Venus, Mercury's friend. As Venus and Taurus sign represent beauty and Mercury is communication, these people have a beautiful way to communicate. They can be good singers too. Mercury-Venus combo most generally creates a person who is very good with numbers. They can be good with any financial business, stocks, shares and assets trading. A natural inclination towards financial dealings will be there. They can be very creative too.
Now, again the differences will be felt by individuals having this position based on whether Mercury is in Krittika Nakshatra, Rohini Nakshatra or Mrigshira Nakshatra. If Mercury is in Krittika, then Mercury will be impacted by Sun's position as Krittika is Sun's own Nakshatra. If Mercury is in Rohini, then it is impacted by Moon's position as Rohini's lord is Moon. If Mercury is in Mrigashira, then it is impacted by Mars' position as Mrigshira's lord is Mars.
As stated, biggest impact will be as per Venus condition in horoscope, as Venus is lord of Taurus. Overall, whole chart needs to be checked before making any conclusion.
Tomorrow, Mercury in Gemini.
