Taurus is the Spring Earth Sign
When Mercury is in Taurus, ideas and attitudes are stable, pleasant, patient and concerned with long-range planning. Thinking shows affection, compassion, dependability, devotion, loyalty, generosity and is concerned with "being nice." This energy is composed, calm, placid, and highly opinionated.
For Taurus, everything is a personal possession ... and that includes even its thoughts. People focus on income, money, belongings, physical property, spending habits, and the use of material resources. They want to make plans and follow them through. Taurus hates to waste energy ... especially its own.
Folks are aware of their values ... and how their lifestyles support these. They want harmony and plenty of physical pleasure. They think and talk about things that are materialistic and practical ... and concentrate on supporting and enjoying themselves.
Under stress with Mercury in Taurus, views (and prejudices!!) become fixed, inflexible, coarse, lazy, self-indulgent, extravagant, and jealous.
