Mercury, planet of communication and commerce, is in Rohini within the zodiacal sign of Taurus from May 6th to 16th 2021.
Rohini is a nakshatra famed for earthy beauty and charm, a flirtatious nature and links with agriculture and fertility. Plans grow and flourish here, you can make good contacts, have the gift of speech, and your only risk is becoming overly stubborn.
Your steady thinking in fact is an asset up to May 14th as Mercury sits between the fiery Sun and Mars, but you may also deal with pushy customers who demand more than you are ready to give. Try to find a middle way and resist being drawn into a needless dispute.
Pay attention also to new beginnings and make your actions uplifting and positive – Rohini’s Shakti is the ‘Power to Grow’, and a good outcome is promised for the right kind of intention at the start. This asterism is ruled by Bramha the creator, which shows your creative and artistic plans coming together when you think the whole project through.
Applying your intelligence to Rohini’s classically feminine qualities – luxuries, fashion and leisure – gives good fortune, and this is also time for a romantic pursuit. Use your wit and charm to make an impression on someone, and be persistent in your chase.
Business plans promise good things too, though the bottom line is not your only concern – Rohini likes to be comfortable, but make sure you don’t become too wrapped up in the purely material.
Mercury’s retrograde path later this month goes back into Rohini by mid-June, when some of your current thoughts and ideas will resurface again and find their resolution.
