Asteroid Talent in Taurus 2022 General Impact:
Taurus rules money, so those of you with financial talent can benefit from Talent in Taurus. This would be good energy for growing money and having a greater abundance of it. This can also be helpful for spending (maybe you're an excellent bargain shopper!).
In general, more monetary value may be placed on our talents, and those of you who make money using your talents may see an increase. It can be an excellent time to turn your talents into something you make money off of, so if it's not something you already do, you may feel the pull to do so with Talent in Taurus, and can have more opportunities for it.
Taurus rules the throat, so those of you with a talent for singing, speaking, or otherwise using the throat area can benefit from Talent in Taurus. We may become more interested in these talents, and give people with them more attention.
Taurus rules our values, so we may value the talents we have more than usual. They may be tied to our confidence and how we feel about ourselves. This can be helpful, however we do have to be careful of over-identifying with our talents and seeing them as who we are and not just what we can do.
Asteroid Talent in Taurus 2022 Conjunctions:
Transit asteroid Talent conjuncts (aligns with) 2 planets while in Taurus: Mercury and Uranus. Talent conjunct Mercury occurs on April 21st, and this can be great for those of you with talents for writing, speaking, teaching, or learning. It can be helpful for those with abilities for organization, structure, and routine. Mercury can get us talking about talents as well, and we can get busy, wanting to quickly make use of them.
Talent conjunct Uranus is the bigger one though, and this occurs on April 7th. This can bring unexpected, unconventional energy to our talents, and we may suddenly get attention for one of our talents, or we may take a different kind of approach to using our talents. This can also be helpful energy for suddenly and unexpectedly discovering a new talent.
With Uranus ruling the internet and being a tech ruler, this can also link to talents with technology or online. We may see more people showcasing their talents online, via social media, and perhaps more become widely known. Techies may also benefit, and can see more financial benefits from their tech talents. More people may think about going into tech, or working online in some capacity, and this can be fruitful.
