With Mercury in Taurus the thinking is slow and methodical. It takes a while to get the momentum to begin a new project but once begun these are the people who are most likely to see a project through to it's conclusion. The thinking is also of a practical nature since Taurus is an earth sign and is about concrete manifestation of ideas and visions into the physical world. Furthermore this can be an ability to accumulate finance. Since Taurus is a fixed sign people with this combination may be very stubborn and stuck to their ideas and will not easily change their viewpoint. This combination can also indicate a talent in the arts since Venus the ruler of Taurus and bestower of beauty can combine with the intellectual abilities of Mercury to form ideas of beauty.
