ASTROLOGY

YOUR PLACE IN THE STARS

MERCURY IN TAURUS

IN Taurus, Mercury is the very antithesis of himself in Aries. The mind of the native is slow, patient, solid and constructive, and often obstinate. He may have a great intellect, but often may learn more from travel and experience than from books. There is, however, frequently some tendency to mental inertia, and this nearly always expresses itself as conservatism. Such minds resist new ideas. Consider Queen Victoria, the most successful reactionary of the nineteenth century. She came to a throne already tottering beneath the blows of the French Revolution, and of such thinkers as Shelley, and {190} she smothered Republicanism by “fighting the fight of sit-down” until at her Jubilee she was more firmly seated than any Tudor!

Huxley, too, for all his brilliancy and originality was in some ways as conservative as his Queen. In science he never jumped at conclusions; he was, perhaps, the most cautious and profound thinker, both in science and in philosophy, that England had produced. Similar qualities, not so well-dignified, are visible in General Boulanger and George V. In them there is some hanging back noticeable; hesitation just where dash was wanted! For constructive obstinacy in politics we should look rather to Cromwell, who was, of course, a far more absolute monarch than the weak king whom he replaced.

And when Mercury in Taurus is constructive, he is very constructive indeed, as is exemplified in Kant, Wagner and Balzac.

There is never any doubt about the solidity and worth of the intellect of people with this position; how it may work out to advantage or disadvantage depends almost entirely upon the aspects.

The following well known persons were born with Mercury in the sign Taurus:

Queen Victoria

Wagner

Joseph G. Cannon

Beauregard

Rudolph Valentino

Oscar Hammerstein

Daniel Chester French

Clarence Darrow

Alan Dale

William Randolph Hearst
