Crescent Moon - Keywords for this phase from http://www.zodiacarts.com/Calendar.shtml are - expansion, growth, struggle, and opportunity. This is the time in a lunar cycle when you gather wisdom learned in the New Moon phase and communicate your intention to move forward. Light a candle. Write or read an affirmation. LISTEN & ABSORB. Commit to your goal.
Today there are minor magickal energies for working with animals. It is Sun Day (Sunday) and a Day of Intent, Creation and Renewal.
Mercury Retrograde - began today - sigh, I always feel rather constricted in what decisions I make during this time. Most of this retrograde period will occur while the Sun is in Taurus (Tuesday, the Sun moves into Taurus) and Taurus being solid and stable and disliking changes could make this retgrade experience a bit more uncomfortable. Mercury retrograde largely affects communication, decision making and sometimes travel. This retrograde period will last through May 11th. This site http://blog.beliefnet.com/astrologicalmusings/2010/04/mercury-retrograde-until-may-1.html has a pretty good article on this Mercury Retrograde period now. And also this site gives a solid discussion on Mercury Retrogrades: http://www.astrologycom.com/retro.html
