Mercury into Scorpio | secrets come out, uncomfortable conversations, mining for gold, research, solving puzzles, truth, dead and buried

Deep by Sarachmet
The planet of communication (Mercury) ingresses into the sign of power, transformation and secrets (Scorpio) until November 5th.

This is excellent energy for deep (Scorpio) investigation/research (Mercury).

Instead of learning/thinking/communicating about a little of this and a little of that, now is the time to go "all in" with a subject we are passionate about.

Our mind can focus. Multi-tasking will be harder because our intellect will want to sit with one thing for longer than we usually do.

Maybe we will finally get that crossword puzzle done!

I recommend the Netflix series Mindhunter for Mercury in Scorpio season. Good. And smart. And dark. Not for everyone, but I (Scorpio rising) am engrossed. Also, I love (and miss) the late 70's - sniffle.

We will be getting to the bottom of things and will not be satisfied with Libra's (Mercury's last stop) conversational civilities. We'll want to know, and think/talk about, what is really happening. It won't always be comfortable.

The hard truths won't be blurted out spontaneously - we will have to dig for them. Decide first if you really want to know what is hiding underneath because Plutonian authenticity is not only transformational - it is permanent. There is no going back to "not knowing". Mysteries can be solved. The truth could come out. Secrets can be languaged and spoken out loud.

Difficult conversations will create deeper levels of intimacy now. If you are dating someone and you have sex (also Scorpio ruled) with them you can never go back to not having sex with them even if you never have sex with them again. The intimacy is still there. It will be like this with our words now. 

And once we know the information - we own it. It's our move (with Scorpio the move might be internal). It changes who we are and we ignore who we are at our own peril.

Careless language (disrespect for ourselves and others) and our careless treatment of other people's words (and their reaction to ours) will be karmic. Keep this in mind.

There could be battles for mental supremacy and mind games during this transit.

People prone to manipulation could be extremely effective (or someone will finally see right to the bottom of what we are doing - maybe that someone will be ourselves). This is a time to take a good, long look at what we are really seeking when we are trying to make a situation/person behave in a way that pleases us. Think about it. There are gold nuggets to be mined now. Even tiny specks can be used to create great fortunes. Scorpio rules our inheritance.

The fly in the ointment here is that we might think we are mining for gold when we are really just obsessing on the same old same old. Scorpio rules obsession and compulsion and our minds could easily go there now. Notice it. Don't judge it. Think about - "what does it mean that I keep thinking about this?". Scorpio rules death, too. It's not only what we dig up, but what we put into the ground that matters now.

Maybe some words/language/story needs to be put to rest.

Almost as soon as Mercury gets into Scorpio he/she connects with Jupiter (tomorrow) also recently ingressed into Scorpio.

There could be some big or over-the-top news/information - maybe an exaggeration or maybe a truth shouted out loud. It might be hard to tell which is which if we only listen with our ears, but our Plutonian instincts (stronger in some people than others, but we all have Scorpio and Pluto somewhere in our charts) will recognize the TRUTH now.

There is a message this week (or maybe last week) about what this first leg of our journey through Jupiter in Scorpio will be about.

I'd say "pay attention" but Jupiter will make it hard to miss.

xo all
