Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio - Trick or Treat?!
Mercury, the Messenger God who rules communications, thoughts, ideas, self-talk, commerce and travel, stations Retrograde at 27 degrees of Scorpio on Thursday, Oct 31st - Samhain/Halloween. Mercury Retrograde wants us to slow down, pay attention, review, reflect, repeat, re-do, re-invent, reintegrate, recover, etc. It wants us to plan and be prepared, to take care of the details, and to think before we communicate. It asks us to turn inward to hear the messages.
This Retrograde is in the probing, intense sign of Scorpio. This can be a time of profound revelations about what we have buried in our psyches, past traumas, insights into obsessions, compulsions, or fears we have hidden or are projecting onto others. Secrets and hidden information can be revealed, we can have breakthroughs in intimate connections and our communications, thoughts, ideas are deep, intense, truthful and anything but superficial!
