Yes, it is a confused and difficult energy now for everyone, at the time of writing this Post at the end of January 2016. But with great potential if we understand and manage it.
This is partly because although Mercury is no longer retrograde at the time of writing (28th January). But the Mercury Retrograde effects still demand out attention and solutions. This is not just until he stops retrograding but actually it lasts until he regains his pre-retrogradation position on 3rd March.
Very importantly, Jupiter is retrograde now.
For these two see: http://blog.starwheelastrology.com/2015/01/02/mercury-retrograde-you-will-be-feeling-the-effects-from-5th-january-2015/
Jupiter is our spiritual enlargement – also husband issues for women – and so there will be challenges of understanding and challenges to manifesting and growing in these areas, but these challenges will be rich in rewards if you seek to understand and work with them.
However even more important, the Nodes of the Moon change Vedic Sign tomorrow, North Node (Rahu) moves into Leo, South Node (Ketu) moves into Aquarius and this once every eighteen month change causes major adjustment and turbulence.
However, even more powerful (and potentially dangerous for some) is that North Node. Rahu (North Node) has been in Vedic Virgo for the last eighteen months, but he moves into Vedic Sign of Leo. Ketu (South Node) has been in Vedic Pisces for the last eighteen months but he moves into Vedic sign of Aquarius. The changeover feels uncertain.
N.B. We will all go through uncertainty and then have to adjust the thrust and directions of our expectations and strategies now.
Also Rahu North Node is in conjunction with Jupiter now, and has been for some time, but with Rahu moving into Vedic Leo tomorrow, a very ambitious, and aprtly potentially dark energy is created until August 2016 of Jupiter and Rahu being in the same sign. In Vedic Astrology it’s known as Guru Chandala yoga. If your ambition is authentic to yoru body rhythms and spiritual life purpose and if you avoid dark or egoic or over-ambitious associations, ideas and drives, you could succeed well.

So watch out for Leo issues becoming very highlighted and even florid.
