Mercury in Scorpio

Dig deep as the communication planet enters the sign of secrets

Mental Mercury moves into Scorpio on October 24, 2016, and if not handled properly suspicion and paranoia may get the best of you! 

Communication collides head-on with the dark sign of secrets and privacy during Mercury in Scorpio. As emotions become heightened, it’s almost like you never know what you’re going to get during this period! Or, that’s what you’ll assume, at the very least. Honesty will come into question, and you may take on the role of detective (one of Scorpio’s archetypes!) while trying to suss out the truth in situations romantic, professional and personal.

This planet of communication gets down to the depths whenever it's in Scorpio. The mind melds with emotions, descending into the body, into the past and into life's mysteries. This can be a very powerful period for talking about difficult issues regarding relationships, money and mortality. Psychological awareness is more acute now, as perceptions take us under the covers of the obvious, seeking hidden meaning and motivations.

The dark side of Mercury in Scorpio is represented by the mistrusting mind, one that holds secrets and fears them at the same time. Communication becomes a means of control, rather than connection. However, seeing our fears doesn't mean that we have to perpetuate them. The opportunities are ripe for discussing heretofore forbidden subjects, resulting in greater degrees of trust and intimacy.

Don’t make major promises, but do go over details and double check your sources of information over the next couple of weeks. But most of all, don’t let hesitance and doubt lead to paranoia and obsession -- doing so could lead to unnecessary arguments and downfalls in relationships.

Its not in my natal chart but the recent transit has made me more intellectually intense than normal. My mental intuition has been far better, enabling me to quickly assess situation accurately. A friend even accused me of being a genius recently, it was kind of funny.. A very noticeable transit.

I would please like to know how this affects people (like me) who are born with Mercury in Scorpio (10/21/60). If you have ANY info., it would be most appreciated. Thank you very much, kk.

This is an extremely low-key week with nothing major going on other than the New Moon in Gemini on Thursday. On the same day, however, Venus squares Pluto, and domineering control freaks can run roughshod over more sensitive types.A Lunar T-Square and a Grand Cross in the Cardinal signs on Monday and Sunday also bring a certain emotional volatility to the beginning and end of the week.Here is a general overview of this week's energy, valid for all.

Ruled by Mercury -- the wing-footed messenger god -- airy Gemini is the connector and communicator, circulating ideas and information. Whether you're a Gemini, a fellow Air sign like Libra or Aquarius, or one of the nine other horoscope signs, you'll definitely feel this fast-paced, flirty influence while the Sun is in Gemini ... continued »

Get ready to give up your gift of gab -- at least for a while. Chatty Mercury moves into slow-and-steady Taurus on May 16, 2017. Speedy Mercury, planet of communication, finds a more sturdy environment in earthy Taurus. ... continued »

Here's a common question astrologers are asked: If twins share the same birthday, how can they sometimes be so different? Isn't their birth chart the same, too? The answer is ... no! We expect two people born at almost the same time, with similar genetics and raised in the same environment to be very similar. And most of the time they are, but it's the exceptions that are used to challenge Astrology. ... continued »
