Mercury is Retrograde Now! Personal and Mundane Implications
Mercury is retrograde until February 4. It is currently at 10 degrees Aquarius (the sign, in a mundane chart, of Congress) and will travel in apparent backward motion to 24 degrees of Capricorn on February 4. Also, 0n February, Pluto will be at 27 degrees Capricorn, within seconds of an exact return to Pluto's place during the American Revolution. (This is the first time in our history as the United States that this has happened.). Not to be outdone, Venus will also be retrograde in Capricorn at the same time.
Any time a planet is retrograde, as Mercury and Venus are, it is going over old ground. The presence of Pluto and Saturn near these retrogrades ensure that mysteries will be unraveled. Rules will be rethought - i a new and democratic way.
The current news is about the Biden administration fighting to protect the vote from partisan election officials as outlined by several GOP states. The partisan nature of these election posts could mean that the popular vote is disregarded as illegitimate. In order for the federal government to ensure each vote counts, the rules of the Senate filibuster must be changed - Mercury retrograde near Saturn in Aquarius. Reconsideration of rules in Aquarius, the sign of democracy.
Secrets will be revealed about the January 6 insurrection. We will get proof that we came perilously close to losing our democracy with the excuse of the Big Lie.
Personally, this sense of digging into the past continues. The area of life is determined by your birth time, so see a credible astrologer to find out what area of life is affected. The same advice for any Mercury retrograde applies now, too. You will have fewer missed appointments, lost keys, miscommunications, etc., if you slow down, reconsider the past, review and rethink. Any project begun under the retrograde is usually short lived. You might send out job resumes, for instance, and get a lot of return mail - until the retrograde ends. Then it is time to start over. An old flame might make an appearance, but leave as soon as Mercury goes direct. If the old flame stays, they are there for the long haul. Edit rather than begin new projects and you are cooperating with the energy of the retrograde.
