Mercury is about to enter Cancer and will stay in the sign until August 8th, influencing your solar third house, dear Taurus. Mercury is spending more time than usual here, suggesting much to learn. Learning, short trips, communication, and making connections, appeal strongly. Some of you could be fidgety or nervous during this cycle, perhaps due to increased errand-running, phone calls, or information overload. Others enjoy the challenge of tackling a variety of subjects. As well, talking, writing, and studying can be good ways to handle stress. It’s a great time to pick up information from your environment and the people in it. Your mind is often distracted, particularly when required to stick to routine, so this is not the best transit for focusing on one task or project. You might spend a lot of time in your car making short frequent trips, running errands, communicating with siblings and neighbors, and visiting friends and relatives. Today, however, it’s easier to focus and concentrate on productive tasks.
