Mercury represents mind, and is a quick-moving planet that spends only two to three weeks in a sign, unless retrograde. This week, Mercury moves from idealistic, relationship-oriented Libra into passionate, intense Scorpio, where it will journey until November 20th. During these two and a half weeks, we have the ability to focus on what’s most important to us on a deep emotional level. With Mercury in Scorpio, there is a greater interest for everyone in the discovery of hidden information. One’s powers of perception are enhanced and there is an almost psychic ability to tune into another’s thought. As well as this ability to “read between the lines”, your ability to concentrate mentally is enhanced.
We can get to the very heart of any matter at this time, especially when it comes to conversations we have. We are certainly more passionate about giving real advice or supporting others. We are not satisfied with any superficial connections right now, it’s all or nothing.
For that reason, our mental processes could get a little obsessive. We may also be more suspicious, expecting bad intentions from others. It’s a time that favors reading or writing about intrigue, mystery, and hidden motives. Mercury in Scorpio loves anything that challenges the brain and therefore we are often interested in what makes people tick during this time.
Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo? If so, you will feel a greater need for investigating deeper emotional issues or motives. Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Scorpio? If so, you will most likely feel more chatty and mentally alert for the next 2.5 weeks.
