Mercury Retro in Aries = new beginnings, ventures and battles (war) as well as Athletics, exercise programs, leadership qualities, inspiring others either positively through ideals or negatively through domination, aggression and bullying and spicy foods. The Mercury influence can involve your siblings, neighbors, short trips, technology, past acquantances/friends/loves and technology and communication issues that need to be fixed/resolved or straightened out.
Mercury Retro in Taurus = money, bank accounts, finances, checking accounts, things we think we own, self-sufficiency, things that we value, beauty, art as well as expressing our deepest truths through these mediums and doing so with grace and beauty. The Mercury influence AMPLIFIES the need for expression to be done in either a beautiful and gracious way or an extremely UGLY, aggressive and offensive way (as a rebellion against the values of Taurus). Again Mercury involves your siblings, neighbors, short trips, technology, past acquantances/friends/loves and technology and communication issues that need to be fixed/resolved or straightened out.
MY TAKE ON WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW:
The retrograde of Mercury and the aggressive Saber rattling and whispers about war are out of the window of greatest danger (ended on April 21). HOWEVER, the real (financial) issues that this aggression is trying to mask will start to show themselves in late May as we A) leave the shadow of this Mercury Retrograde and B) enter the window of influence for the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE IN THE US that takes place on Aug 21. The last time this happened in the US was in the 18th century and we experienced the pandemic of INFLUENZA that year which killed 50 million people. So a total Eclipse is not a small thing. SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel, I will be posting a video about this.
I also posted a video last week about Venus - Mars + Syria = War? discussing weather I think we are about to go to war or not. Go to my channel below to see it and don't forget to subscribe to get more updates on what the stars have to say about our world.
