When mindful Mercury moves into focused Taurus on May 1, communication in the workplace becomes more grounded, ideas turn to practical plans and choices are made according to what’s manageable. Mercury also has a face off with serious Saturn, so it's important to carefully consider your decisions and only make commitments you know you can keep. 

Deadlines are firm during this transit, and extra effort is required to ensure that you meet your obligations. Under Saturn’s watchful eye, what’s been arranged must be delivered.

Mercury-Saturn is all about mature communication, which means being upfront about time management. Mercury in Taurus has a sustainable focus, while Saturn in Scorpio helps anchor Mercury’s somewhat flippant ideas. A few things done well far outweighs many things done superficially.

Long-term plans and ambitions are reviewed and revised, so that you have a realistic timeline for success. If you experience delays, use the extra time to help you do a better job. Under Mercury-Saturn, standards matter. You’ll need to be firm with colleagues, and ensure everyone pulls their weight. Likewise, you can expect your boss and co-workers to rely on you for all deliverables.

This week, hold to the under-promise-over-deliver mantra. Caution ensures you have the time required to exceed other’s expectations. Mercury-Saturn helps you clarify priorities, which may mean transcending tasks you’ve outgrown. Remember your long-term goals, and consider how current choices could support future success.
