2013 Mercury in retrograde
                                           2013 Mercury in Retrograde

The calendar below shows the dates of when Mercury is in retrograde shaded in yellow.  The letters in red are the
days that they are most erratic, when Mercury is moving at its slowest, less than 1 degree each day.  It is a time
to plan more carefully.  The grey areas on the chart, are the shadow period.  It is marked as the beginning and
ending of Mercury’s influence.  Shadow period begins when the planet is at a position where it will later turn
Direct.  Shadow period ends when it returns to position at which it went retrograde.  The retrograde cycle starts
with warning shadow days.  Then intensity will increase during the red letter or known as storm days.  Things will
then move into the heightened chaos of the retrograde.  Mercury will then slow and the red letter days at the end
of the retrograde period will finally tapering off from the effect during the closing of the shadow period.  The days
in red letters, are the days during which Mercury moves very slowly and thus greater intensity is exhibited of the
things that Mercury does rule.
