This is not a political post! But when Mercury, planet of the mind and information, travels through Scorpio, the sign of the dark night, there is a passionate intensity that causes us to delve beneath the superficial for the real truths. Even in today’s political climate where there seems to be more spin than facts, we can discover for ourselves where our own spirit can be infused with the fire of wisdom and true understanding that Mercury in Scorpio bestows by taking us deep within our own emotional truths in order to discover our own selves.
Mercury first entered Scorpio at the end of September, and then after a short time in Libra retrograded back into Scorpio at the end of October. Mercury will remain in Scorpio until December 1st when it transitions to Sagittarius and lightens the mood. Until then, this is an excellent time for focused mental efforts, solving mysteries, and serious research. It’s the perfect time to begin a journal for some very personal self-examination or psychotherapy.
