Mercury square Uranus

It’s easy to question conventional wisdom when convention isn’t wise anymore. And that’s where you’ll find yourself when Mercury squares off against Uranus in Taurus. The things that used to work no longer do and the time for waiting to see how developments will play out is over. Now nobody’s saying that you have to grab a pitchfork and storm the Bastille, but there’s nothing saying that you have to uphold certain structures that have outlived their purpose either. We all want to try to make unworkable situations work. It’s human nature. But there comes a time when you have to walk away from something that’s no longer tenable and that time is now. Signs most affected: Gemini, Taurus, Leo, Virgo, and Aquarius
