Yes Mercury is about to go Retrograde. No it’s not a “mistake”. And then when Mercury goes Direct, Mars will go Retrograde and then when Mars turns Direct, Mercury will Retrograde again. It’s a tricky year to navigate. See the 2014 Super-Scopes, if you want a map.
Anyway, this Mercury Retro evokes the evolution of 2010-2012, when Neptune was going from Aquarius to Pisces. You may be amazed at the nebulous insights that float up re that transitional era
