How Each Zodiac Can Survive Mercury Retrograde In Taurus, According To A Tarot Reader

Feeling a little icky and not sure why? Maybe you can blame it on Mercury retrograde in Taurus which starts April 21, 2023 and lasts until May 14, 2023. Everything that can go wrong, will. But that doesn’t mean you’re doomed. Look for your zodiac sign below to see how the Tarot cards say you’ll survive.


Your card: Justice

You’ll get through Mercury retrograde just fine as long as you keep things just and fair. You might have an urge to take more than your share, but that’s the wrong move. You know deep down it’s always better to be fair.


Your card: 2 of Wands

One of the key components to this card is the idea of leaving home. For a homebody like you, that can be tough, but sequestering yourself in your house all Mercury retrograde turns out to be a bad idea. Get out, do things, leave your bubble.


Your card: Queen of Pentacles

This is the time to be practical with money. If any big fallouts happen during this Mercury retrograde, it’s because you were being irresponsible with funds. Be practical, Gemini. We all have faith in you.


Your card: 10 of Swords

Watch out for back-stabbers, Cancer. People are working against you this Mercury retrograde. It might be best not to hand power to people if they have means to turn around and hurt you with it. It’s the best way to avoid betrayal and loss.


Your card: The Moon

Something’s going on below the surface and you may have no idea. This big secret could be totally out of your hands at this point, so all you can really do is try to handle it with grace when it finally gets revealed.


Your card: Ace of Cups

Whatever happens during Mercury retrograde in Taurus, remember to lead with compassion. You never know what people are going through, and maybe any ire you get from others has nothing to do with you.


Your card: The Tower

You won’t be able to avoid the chaos that unfolds this Mercury retrograde, but you can survive it with your positive attitude. Even when something bad happens, you can think of it as one chapter ending and another beginning. It might be easier said than done, but you’ve got this.


Your card: 9 of Cups

Even if something goes wrong right now–and it probably will–there will still be positive things going on around you that you can focus on instead. It won’t be all bad, and you’ll get through it by remembering that you’re okay, everything is fine, you’ll survive.


Your card: The Empress

The best way you can get through this rough patch is to spread love to people around you. Others are going through it with Mercury retrograde too, so shift your focus on helping them. That nurturing spirit will make everything just a little bit–or a lot–better.


Your card: 6 of Swords

This Mercury retrograde will bring change, and all you need to do is go with the flow. That might be hard for you. Change can be scary. But coming at it with a positive attitude can make a world of difference.


Your card: 3 of Pentacles

You’re really good at doing things on your own, but if you want to survive Mercury retrograde in Taurus, you’ll have to ask for help. Right now, it’s better to work in a team to solve whatever problems come your way.


Your card: Knight of Swords

If you want to survive this chaotic time, you’ll have to think on your feet. While you might be good at planning, you’ll instead have to rely on fast-thinking. All you need is to trust that you know what you’re doing and what’s best for you.
