HERE'S WHAT MAKES THAT TRUE;
As I post this discourse we are in the light of the New Moon in Taurus, right now as a matter off fact, (1:13AM EST,) and the majority of us already have a pretty clear idea of what we want, and where to go to get it. Summer plans take on solid shape, details are examined, there is much talking and negotiating and by months end reservations are confirmed. (There will be minor adjustments but hey, that's OK.)
HERE'S WHAT MAKES THAT EVEN MORE TRUE;
Right now even as my thoughts flow onto the paper we are in the shadow period of Mercury Retrograde in Gemini.
A Mercury retrograde period is about 8 weeks long and is composed of a “shadow” period and a “storm” period. The “shadow” of this Mercury retrograde begins May 4th and ends June 27th. The “STORM Period”for this Mercury Retrograde begins May 18th at 9:49PM ET and ends on June 11th at 6:33PM ET.
The shadow period starts when the retrograde planet passes over the point in the zodiac it will turn direct at for the very first time, and ends when it finally returns to that same spot or point in the zodiac it turned retrograde at in the beginning. For this Mercury retrograde period the final point is touched for the last time on June 27, 2015 and then Mercury marches into Cancer on July 8th, 2015.
All retrograde planets pass over this same “shadow” point 2 times during, (or 3 but not this time,) their specific transit. We begin to feel the effects of retrogrades during this shadow period and the energies, (whatever they are on a personal level,) build until the retrograding planet enters the “storm period.”
The “Storm Period” of Mercury retrograde, (or any retrograde planet,) is when the affected planet is moving at its slowest speed, There are usually 2 “storm periods” during a retrograde, the first is around the time the affected planet actually stands still and turns around backwards for the first time, and the second is when he stands still again and turns around forward to return to where he started.
