4/18/2010 Mercury goes retrograde in the sign of Taurus, which lasts until May 11th.

Taurus is not the easiest sign for Mercury, it weighs down fast-moving thoughts with slow-paced considerations and when retrograde, the pace may be maddening.

Nonetheless, taking your time is emphasized in the next few weeks and rewards will come to those that do. Read the small print, back up your files and don’t crowd too many appointments in one day. This is especially true today; it’s the weekend after all, so relax.
