Today’s Sun-Mercury merger in practical Taurus favors financial discussions and analysis. If you have a partner, today is a good time to talk about your financial goals for the future, or bring up any problems you have about their spending habits. Because Taurus is an Earth sign, today’s brainy influence favors discussions about environmental issues. Just watch out for retrograde Mercury, which favors analyzing your finances but can mess up money transactions through miscommunications and misplaced emails and paperwork. Financial agreements and transactions will be easier after Mercury turns direct on May 30.
