I’m blogging on the road, so I’m just going to list a few interesting events that appear during this retrograde period and invite thoughts or comments.

Mercury is now in the shadow period in Capricorn (which rules tradition, authority, and institutions), and we seem to be seeing some institutional or official backtracking and secrets coming to light, reminding us of the long and painful process of adjustment we’re facing as Pluto moves through Capricorn. (See earlier post on Mercury rx in Capricorn here).

The list will be updated as and when:

Mercury is now getting ready to move back into Taurus from Gemini, where it will stay until 30-31 May 2009. Mercury rx in Gemini has made us review communication styles and ideas, while Mercury rx in Taurus will shift the focus back to Taurean ideals of personal comfort and values, practical application, and grounded stability.
