The astrological chart for spring 2008 shows that it is a season more connected to past events than one ripe for innovation and newness. You'll keep on doing things the old way until you have made, and then checked and re-checked, your plan for change. Your freedom is restricted since issues of home and career will override your individual desires. Things will move slowly and there's no leeway to skip steps and speed up the process.
The theme of the season is for open communication. You need to be honest and able to document your facts when you try to influence someone. Travel, both long and short, is important to educate yourself in matters you need to know about. Gather information by verbal and non-verbal means as you explore new places and new ideas.
Mercury's retrograde vacation happens from May 26 to June 19 in the spring sign of Gemini. Saturn ends his current retrograde on May 2. Pluto begins his on April 2.
