Mercury moves into Scorpio today, at 4:46 pm eastern time.
Mercury represents your mind. It’s how you think as well as what you think about. It also represents your communication patterns, how you learn, and how you socialize. It can be siblings, the community around you, or grade school.
Scorpio is shadow energy. It’s everything you may have swept away that needs clearing out. It’s heavy energy, often hurt energy. It deals with trauma, death, loss, control, manipulation, abuse, rape, or abandonment. Anything negative that impacts someone’s psyche. The stuff that impacts how you act with others, without you always realizing why.
Scorpio energy can show where other people have been mean, but it can also make you mean. If you’ve been caring around all that negative energy, you’re vulnerable and feel the need to protect yourself. To do this, you may control, manipulate, or push people to act or speak a certain way as to not recreate past pain. Unfortunately, this often leads to others leaving, because nobody likes to be controlled or put in a box. When you release control and allow others to just act, you may actually be surprised at what kind of good you find.
With Mercury in Scorpio, there is perfect energy for getting to the bottom of why you think what you think or why you say what you say. Your mind may be in a darker place right now, but it’s in order to release any negativity that you find that may be impacting your lives in destructive ways. The best way to combat this hurt energy is to heal it. You can’t take it back, and you can’t prevent more from happening, but you can release what’s there.
Scorpio also represents intimacy with others, so don’t be afraid to allow your mind to connect with someone else’s. You may be afraid, because of all the darkness you carry yourself, but you might find that they carry their own set of darkness too. Maybe you can help each other heal together, because during this transit, conversation becomes healing. Don’t be afraid to talk things out if you need to.
During Mercury’s transit through Scorpio, it makes several aspects with other planets.
- On October 27 at 12:16 pm Mercury conjuncts the Sun at 4 degrees Scorpio.
The Sun represents heart and ego. When it conjuncts Mercury, the energy of the two planets blend together, so your heart and your mind will express as one. It’s in Scorpio, so now is a good time to focus on really communicating from a deep place of your heart, something that may be very therapeutic. Don’t be afraid to have some fun with it either. Just because its heavy doesn’t mean you can’t also laugh a little.
2. On October 30 at 8:57 pm Mercury trines Neptune at 9 degrees Scorpio and Pisces, respectively.
Neptune represents subconscious energy. It’s misty and not very concrete, but it comes from a place of soul. It’s in Pisces, so this energy is extra diffuse right now. A trine is a positive aspect, so your soul energy flows well with your mental energy. Anything that has been going on before that you didn’t really understand starts to make more sense. You may also be feeling a little bit more understanding of others as well. This is a good thing. Take some time to truly communicate from your soul, you may really need it.
3. On November 3 at 1:10 am Mercury sextiles Pluto at 15 degrees Scorpio and Capricorn, respectively.
Pluto rules Scorpio, so it takes on a lot of similar energy. Right now it’s in Capricorn, so it’s about confronting the way you use authority. It’s how people discipline as a whole, and how you use your own self discipline. A sextile is positive energy, but not as positive as a trine. Your mind and the way you let go will work together. There may be some heavy stuff that comes up on a public front. Use this to truly understand what needs to be released, unless you want it to impact what you build in the future.
4. On November 12th at 9:39 am Mercury moves into Sagittarius.
Expect things to get a lot lighter mentally. Go on some adventures or do something freeing now that all that heaviness is passed. You need and deserve it.
Check for any planets that you have in Scoprio to see where you mental focus may be extra healing during this transit. And feel free to leave a comment on how anything may be impacting you.
Lots of love and good luck,
