Window of Direct Creation

It is that time again, and like last year we have two windows with a Mercury Retrograde in the middle. To me this essentially makes it more like one window because you get your intentions out there, then get a 3 week break to back away from busy thoughts and reevaluate if you had the clarity you wanted in the first window, and come into the second window ready to make any tweaks or adjustments. The hard part, like last year these windows are long which makes it more difficult to maintain focus. Here are the dates

All times are U.S. Pacific time

January 10th Uranus goes Direct at 5:49 PM opening the first window
February 16 Mercury goes Retrograde 4:54 PM closing the first window (37 days)

March 9 Mercury goes Direct 8:49 PM opening the second window
April 25 Pluto goes Retrograde 11:54 am Closing the second window (46 days)

If I recall correctly last year the first window was longer than the second.
