Now I know that your Scorpio senses might be tingling reading this quick email from me, but I have some exciting news to share with you: Mercury has moved into Scorpio!
Astrological Energy Shift: Mercury in Scorpio September 27, 2020 - October 27, 2020
You might be wondering, “How does she know that…” It’s natural to be more suspicious during any Scorpio transits.
However, it’s also natural to want to dive deeper when Scorpio energy is present, so I had to share some helpful astro information with you.
Scorpio presents a lot of intensity, pushing us beyond our perceived limits, and promotes transformation.
Being that Mercury rules the way that your thoughts form and your natural communication style, you might be wanting to have conversations that have real substance.
Consider the fact that Mercury is just shifting out of Libra, which previously urged us to find balance and to arrive at fair solutions by networking and expanding our social circles through conversation.
Mercury in Scorpio pushes you to trust your intuition when it comes to these connections. Mercury in Scorpio seeks truths in all that is hidden and undercover.
Don’t forget that Scorpio is traditionally ruled by Mars, but it’s modern planetary ruler is Pluto, the planet of deep transformation and change.
If something isn’t working, it will be exposed at this time and most likely handled through clear, authentic conversations.
Maximize This Energy
Sometimes it’s helpful to remember the elemental energy that’s presented when these astrological shifts take place.
Scorpio is a water sign and it’s going to drive you to the deepest, darkest depths of the ocean. If you can imagine this, it’s hard to see -- you have to feel through it and trust your gut!
It’s important to find healthy outlets for emotional release during this time, especially when it comes to stimulating your Mercurian muscle (your mind).
This will help you to communicate clearly, avoid passive aggressiveness, and tap into this powerful Scorpio-Pluto energy.
As with any energetic shift, there’s always the need to respect our dual universe. One way that astrology allows us to do that is to look at the sister sign of the energy being affected.
For instance with Scorpio, Taurus is the sister sign (or opposite). If you find yourself becoming too enveloped in the intensity of this cosmic energy, you can practice a little self love and care for yourself with Venus-inspired Taurus activities.
Just to give an example, if you’ve had a very deep emotionally charged conversation with a friend, you might be a little drained.
Rather than just compartmentalizing that energy, take a moment to ground yourself with a nourishing meal and truly take that time to enjoy yourself.
This can be more rewarding than you know, giving you the energy to continue being productive rather than experiencing burnout or emotional exhaustion.
Have you looked at where Mercury is present in your natal birth chart?
Pay attention to which house it’s present in (this will be the area of life that is impacted until the end of October).
Also check to see if there are any other planets conjunct (or partnered) with Mercury. These energies will also be amplified at this time.
“I will utilize the energy of Mercury in Scorpio to reveal hidden truths I have not been aware of. And I will focus on deeper, more meaningful conversations and connections with those in my soul tribe.”
