See below for glyph meanings.
The theme of this pattern is
Breakthrough ideas and insights based on new ways of thinking
bring solid plans, deliberate actions and reliable long-term results.
Remember the four-stage evolution-in-thinking Mercury's path described a while back -- the one where two steps were complete and we were waiting for the next two to form? Well, those have happened -- just before Mercury tripped temporarily into Taurus.
It won't go far. Mercury retrogrades starting April 9, back into Aries April 20 ... and will form these angles again -- twice. Once going backwards, once again going forward. We have a nice long time to work with these two energies -- and believe me, they have some goodies to leave behind.
You may have seen some results already. New ideas. New perspectives. New answers to problems ... and questions that start with "What if ...?" or "How about ...?" If not, keep working on them. Keep asking. They're out there -- and they're looking for you, too. I've certainly come up with some things to work on.
But -- realize, too, that this is a long developing process. The ideas / answers you've seen so far -- or that come up in the next few days won't be complete or final by any means. They are the first draft in an unfolding story that will take two more edits before you can call it done.
Leave enough flexibility in your plans to account for this -- and keep an open mind. Be aware of your own thoughts. If some inspiration hits you -- take notes. Charting this may be a terrific help before you're done -- and you won't be done until late May.

Saturn Retrograde -- Rebuilding Your Personal Foundations ---> Delays ... get worse -- Saturn is notorious for signifying delays, and because under stress it also symbolizes limitation, restriction, and loss, many followers of astrology consider it their least favorite planet.
