Mercury, the planet that rules communication, thought and the mind, enters Scorpio today (exact 11:38 GMT) where it remains until 5th December 2013.
This tells us that Mercury is up to its tricks over the next few months and will be leading us a merry dance as it enters retrograde motion from 21st October-10th November.
It’s always a good idea to back up computer files and sort out any technological or electrical issues before the date when Mercury turns retrograde, i.e. 21st October.
The Mercury retrograde period is not the best time to make major purchases on cars, technology or anything else that could prove to turn out faulty. Go for it before that date or wait until nearer Christmas.
Mercury in Scorpio
Mercury in Scorpio is a navel-gazing combination, a time for soul-searching, research and donning your detective hat. Mercury retrograde in Scorpio is an opportunity to delve even deeper into personal work. Know Thyself.
Some people will be waxing lyrical, others engaged in deep philosophical thought and the odd few will be so introspective that communication may be scarce.
Secrets may be uncovered or withheld whilst Mercury penetrates deep within the sign of Scorpio and there’ll be more than one puzzle or mystery to unravel.
You may find it hard to voice what you feel or to fully understand what you’re thinking but be willing to enter into unknown territory and listen carefully for insight and new perceptions. Sitting quietly for short periods of silence & solitude can help you access your intuition and your inner voice.
Mercury in Scorpio’s gifts may be hidden at first but they’re worth digging a little deeper for.
