Yesterday was Aquarius Mercury‘s final day in his retrograde shadow at 17º.
Clearing the shadow means a planet that was retrograde, and now has turned direct, has passed the degree of the zodiac where the ‘backward motion’ began, e.g., Mercury’s current retrograde cycle was between 17º – 1º Aquarius.
For the person on the street, this means ALL influence of the retrograde has disipated.
It’s over—for real! No more posts about this event, I promise!!!!
It has been well over a month long process of back and forth for the Winged Messenger, but he is now out of the woods.
It’s onward to playing the boomerang planet to the current Jupiter Rx/Pluto/Chiron/Sun yod—you’ll be able to coolly think it through, then talk it out.
Next, the Messenger God is trined by dear Luna from Libra on the 8th—intellectualizing emotions.
Finally, for most of the next week, he widely sextiles Venus in Aries, before leaving the sign late on the 12th of March.
Bye, bye Aquarius.
(The sextile with Venus is usually a simple and subtle ‘feel good’ energy.)
