All of this really does give each and every one of us a reason to cheer. Those of an optimistic demeanor might even say that the end is in sight. After all July, August and September are right around the corner.
I can see those with a more cynical outlook, rolling their eyes and saying ; “what about the 3 eclipses, the first in mid-August and the second and third in September? And how about that pesky Mercury retrograde, the 3rd and the 4th in the series of 4 this year? Hmm, what about those smarty tart?”
Well, golly gee there is all that stuff to consider too. So let's do that, lets consider our options.
First I must state, (unequivocally,) that there is plenty of good and fun, (good fun,) stuff to do even with the beastly long retrogrades and the 3 eclipses we experience between now and late September. (more info here.)
Indeed, below are a few but not all of the favored events we can look forward to;
For the remainder of spring and the rest of the summer is a great time to look to the past and connect with old friends. Old lovers have a way of popping up during retrograde transits too. Whatever pops up from your past, now is the time to run with it, because there is a healing quality that unfolds with retrogrades and eclipses too. Or, if you do not need “healing' it's still a great time to reminisce on the past and catch up with old friends and family.

This is the “lucky” side of Mars retrograde, the vacation like atmosphere it invokes, the joyful journeys and reunions with places and people in our past.
Bursts of money manifest, although this financial aspect is more often than not of a “one and done” nature. Legal settlements, gifts and even a win at lottery are examples. Business is brisk and profitable, but after the fact clients and customers have a way of “poof” disappearing so pay heed to the temporary nature of profits.
Plans that are pending now, should remain pending, (there are a few exceptions, call or order email charts that are individually customized just for You!) and can be successfully implemented after the retrograde transits pass, as that is when we see the full results of our actions. The yin and the yang balance quite nicely after the fact. Think October 1, 2016.
Mercury retrograde transits , although shorter in duration than all other planets are the most easily felt. To broach the somewhat more uncomfortable aspects; (we touch on this only briefly,) Marina Macario says of this Mercury retrograde; “Learning from ones mistakes” and the “uncomfortable truth” just about sums up this Mercury Rx. “ So that is not so bad after all as there is a learning curve and our past experience guides us through the worst of it.
Here is a true life example to further clarify;
