Mercury enters Scorpio on October 9th, opening our eyes to what lies in the shadows. This transit is about intimate discussions with a raw edge, the reveal of secrets, clandestine research and peering into the dark side. Mercury in Scorpio may be a less vocal transit, but silence can have a huge impact.
This energy is about making sense of what’s taboo or uncomfortable. There’s a need to understand all the dark things, because knowledge is power for Scorpio. And ultimately, Scorpio is a sign of power, survival and evolution.
Any information that is written or vocalized will not be superficial. Words will be chosen carefully and will have weight - this is your transit if you want to uncover secrets or deliver a message with maximum impact. Talk less, pay attention to what’s going on behind the scenes and don’t be afraid of what you don’t want to know.
Mercury will station Rx in Sagittarius on November 16th and will re-enter Scorpio on December 1st. From December 1st, 2018 to December 6th, 2018 Mercury will be Rx in Scorpio, which will push you to look even more deeply at what’s hidden or uncomfortable. This will be a brief but profound retrograde in Scorpio, suggesting the reveal of a key taboo, secret or soul truth. Mercury will station direct on December 6th, finally exiting Scorpio on December 12th.
