Yellow is a Mercury color!
The metaphor for your mind
Mercury, quick, intense, lively and highly mobile -- racing its way around the Sun faster than any of the other known planets, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's mental and communications skills, the intellectual components of his personality, the inner self that deals with physical movement, informational exchange, discrimination, learning and analysis.
As the metaphor for "communication skills and brain power" ... it represents a dimension that makes humans unusual, even unique, among other life forms.
It shows how you think and perceive
The mental skills a person has and the way he uses them tells a great deal about his personality. Information from Mercury will show the construction of his values, his outlook on the world, and his ability to have his ideas and knowledge make an impact on that world.
Mercury energy, in and of itself, is considered neutral, somewhat sterile, and even impersonal -- as befits the qualities of reason and logic -- being, in its pure form, devoid of both ego and emotional considerations.

Air Planet / Earth Sign -- Earth Planet / Earth Sign -- The Mercury in Taurus Conundrum ---> Mercury in Taurus is in one way an air planet in an earth sign ... and in another way an earth planet in an earth sign. One way works a little better than the other. Mercury as an air planet -- ruler of Gemini -- is a bit too cerebral and abstract in its approach to reality to suit the tastes of ultra-pragmatic Taurus.
