Pat Paquette of Pisces Chronicles posts an article explaining why she thinks this Mercury retrograde is not going to be an ‘ordinary’ one.

I’ll list the other astrological phenomena she identifies as having an impact on the retrograding Mercury, but do have a look at her article for the full explanation.

  1. Mars and Saturn both retrograding in signs ruled by Mercury — Mars is rx in Gemini, and Saturn in Virgo
  2. Solar eclipse in close alignment to retrograding Mercury in Aquarius on 6th February
  3. Retrograding Mars opposing Pluto
  4. (and of course) Pluto enters Capricorn
