Mercury enters Taurus today, which means that the coming weeks could bring a lot of inflexibility in communication. Flexible, fluid Mercury becomes rigid and immovable in the fixed sign of Taurus, so this isn’t a time when you’ll be able to assert your views without getting a lot of pushback.
Keeping that in mind, it’s easy to see that you could be so caught up in yourself that you can’t see straight. Therefore, it’s important to note that if you need guidance or help, you can ask for compassion and empathy from others.
It’s also important that you show people the same kindness and compassion. Understand that people face adversities just like you do. It might be hard to form alliances and communicate without arguing, but stepping back from a heated situation can help you understand where others are coming from.

Pig Spirit appears to remind you of the right use of intelligence, a gift we all have that is meant to be used with love, compassion, and discernment. Intelligence means recognizing the value of intuition partnered with smarts and common sense, which leads to intelligent solutions.
When Pig Spirit appears, you are called to respect your analytical mind and use it for the highest good, recognizing that all facts must be considered even when they do not fit with what you know already. Spirit blesses us with wisdom when we allow Pig Spirit to nudge us into open-minded, thoughtful dialogues, whether with others or internally as we mull over our ideas and what we have come to understand.
You are intelligent and capable of clear-minded thinking shaped by the wisdom you have accumulated and the intuition that will tell you when you have more learning to do because not all facts are in.
Now is a time that your decision-making powers are reliable, for you are in alignment with Pig Spirit’s keen intelligence.
2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
4/16/2022 FULL MOON IN LIBRA: You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things nice rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.
4/23/2022 LAST QUARTER MOON IN AQUARIUS: Your relationship with your emotions might be more complicated, because Moon in Aquarius has a strong need for emotional freedom. However, when you are in a group of people, it is easier for you to understand your feelings and free yourself from negative emotions such as fear, anger and jealousy.
4/30/2022 NEW MOON IN TAURUS: Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life. The basic problem is finding your own self-respect in order to ensure that you do not mistakenly seek it in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, it will become easier for you to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.
