When Mercury goes into retrograde phase in the sign of Aquarius there would be much focus on independence and freedom than what is needed. Social orders would be put to great test. People would be found to be more adamant in their view point which would cause serious frictions in relationships, both personal and professional. Intellectual conflicts arise. Those in the political scenario need to be careful with their moves. Nerve and muscle related disorders are said to be on the rise during this phase according to medical bulletins analysed over a good period of time.
