SCORPIO - "I DESIRE/CREATE, THEREFORE I AM."
If you have been watching the 'home page' of this website, scrolling down near the bottom, the Retrogrades have been posted all year. Every so often I remind you. Mercury in Scorpio Retrogrades on October 31, 2019 and will turn Direct on November 20, 2019.
Mercury transits a Sun Sign every 15 to 60 days depending on its motion, meaning if it involves a Retrograde or not. Mercury goes through a Retrograde status three times per year giving us 3 times a year to get our maintenance, scheduling and organizational act together.
In this case Mercury will Retrograde on October 31, 2019 at 27 degrees until November 20, 2019 at 16 degrees.
Mercury will be in its Pre-Retrograde Storm beginning October 11, 2019 at 11 degrees. This is the time period 'before' Mercury Retrograde where Mercury begins to slow down and weaken, which often time results in unfortunate errors in decision-making (thinking) and inattention to detail. Keep in mind Mercury rules both Gemini (communication) and Virgo (methodology, details).
Mercury in its Post-Shadow will end on December 7, 2019 at 27 degrees, being back where it started when it first retrograded back on October 31, 2019.
Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
Here is a nice little piece of Mercury trivia for you. Mercury will never be more than one Sun Sign away from the Sun. This means someone who has their Sun in Scorpio, will have their Mercury within 1 Sun Sign on either side of Scorpio or it will be in the sign of Scorpio. This means there are only three possibilities that a Scorpio Sun Sign individual might have their Mercury in -- Mercury in Libra, Mercury in Scorpio or Mercury in Sagittarius. This helps you guess someone's Mercury even if you don't know their exact birthdate but you know their Sun Sign. You can pretty much rule out Mercury in the opposite sign (Taurus) or the four signs on each side Taurus (Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo) and (Aries, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn). Cool huh?
Mercury in Scorpio is a very profound communicative transit. Let's think about this. Scorpio is very intense, secretive and instinctive, so when coupled with the planet of communication this creates extremely profound and capable insight. This intensifies the ability to see human motivations more clearly.
Mercury in Scorpio cuts to the chase and does not mince words and if you know a Scorpio, their language is generally fairly sharp and often stinging. If you don't want to know, then don't ask a Scorpio because they won't spare your sensitive feelings, you will just have to get over it. Scorpio energy either says what it feels or doesn't say anything at all. Actually, the silence of a Scorpio says a lot. It's no secret, Scorpio hates and Loves with equal fervor.
Mercury in Scorpio creates a very determined mind able to tap all resources. Think people think! Mercury is the thinking planet and so Mercury in Scorpio will help you think your way through challenges and overcome them. Scorpio is also the worrier of the zodiac, so if you choose the route of worrying your way through instead of thinking your way through, then this transit will feed your 'chosen' suffering. Worrying does not serve you, it only makes you suffer. Make a choice, worry or think.
Scorpio is not only ruled by the scorpion and the eagle, it is also ruled by the mythical and sacred bird, 'the phoenix rising' who rose from the ashes and transformed. Scorpio carries the ability of the 'Midas Touch' who has the ability to turn the situation around like King Midas who turned everything he touched into gold. Scorpio has knack for getting out of severely challenging situations by simply transforming the situation into something better. It's like taking a donut and twisting it like a pretzel into a neverending figure eight. That is the work of a Scorpio. It is my belief that a Scorpio invented the twist donut and lemonade. If anyone can take lemons and turn it into lemonade, it is indeed a Scorpio. While it is important to have each sign of the zodiac on your team, can you now see how important it is to have a Scorpio on your team. Keep in mind that we all have Scorpio somewhere in our Natal Chart, which means Scorpio is part of you, so you should get to know this sign and where you carry the transformative power of the 'Midas Touch' and the 'Phoenix Rising'.
Scorpio rules the genitalia (sex organs) and thereby rules sex; therefore, the thinking planet of Mercury causes a preoccupation with sex. There is also probably some secret chatter, secret talks (or phone sex) going on as well.
Being that Scorpio is the secretive and investigative Agent 007 of the zodiac, this transit brings about intense research, detective and investigative tendencies. And as a gentle reminder, never ever lie to a Scorpio, because they will find out. Their natural suspicious and questioning tendency tells them to "trust but verify". Actually, Scorpio's don't really trust anyone. Someone in the zodiac has to be this way and Scorpio is the one. Scorpio's don't mistrust, they distrust. This why their level of communication often involves withholding rather than giving. This is exactly why they need insurance but assurance. Scorpio naturally rules the 8th house of joint resources (money, wills, insurance), joint physicality (sex) and joint feeling (assurance). Scorpio really does want to share their Life with someone and when they do, you can best believe that they consider you, someone special. Stay Astrologized™.
