Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio, early in the morning on Monday, October 21st. He’ll be headed towards exact conjunction with Saturn in Scorp10 a week later. This will exacerbate or enhance the situation, depending on your prejudice or perspective.
If you’re inclined to dig ’round in a circle on the surface, you’ll probably be frustrated with your lack of progress. If you’re willing to back over that which has already been processed, to look for anything you may have missed, this will seem more like a golden opportunity.
Communications may be sparse during this time, but they’re liable to be potent and potentially healing. “Less is more” applies.
Basically, deep thinking and communication with substance is in vogue. Fluff is O, U, T, OUT!
Check the house in your chart where Mercury will be transit to see see where this energy will be focused (2-18 degrees Scorpio).
As an example, In my case, it’s transiting the 10th house (public/career). I am teaching a class on Finding Love with Venus Saturn. It’s hard (Saturn) writing (Mercury) about shadow (Scorpio) for support (Saturn) and healing (Scorpio). The work is deep!
My writing (Mercury) on this blog is likely to be serious (Saturn) and intense (Scorpio), and there will be less of it.
What house in your chart will Mercury retrograde impact? Can you already see and feel the effect?
