Mercury in Scorpio:

Insights from Darkness

When Mercury arrives in Scorpio on November 5th until November 24th, 2021, we lose the airy, rational, fair-minded thinking of the Mercury in Libra transit and we replace it with something altogether much darker and full of mystery, but perhaps more insightful and certainly more resourceful.

Instead of indecisiveness and idealism, we’re much more likely to make firmcompulsive or obsessive decisions, based on selfish desires – but we’re also more likely to think deeply about what we’re doing first.

In astrology, when Mercury transits Scorpio, nothing is left to chance. Every decision is deeply researched. We may not always choose the lighter path, but at least we make that choice fully consciously, not accidentally.

Scorpio energy can be rather spiteful at times and driven by a desire to control or to manipulate, and when Mercury transits Scorpio, words can be dark and dangerous things indeed.

However, they can also be used for great goodness, as the Mercury in Scorpio transit enables us to speak movingly, with great perception and with great power.

Scorpio energy is determined and resolute, and when we make up our minds during Mercury in Scorpio, we’re sticking to it—Scorpio is a fixed zodiac sign in astrology, after all.

This is obstinate energy too, so we may not be willing to listen to someone else’s reason – but then, why should we, since we’re so absolutely certain that we’re right?

You might believe that thinking is slow when Mercury transits Scorpio, since it’s a fixed sign, but in fact nothing could be further from the truth.

In astrology, Mercury in Scorpio thinks on its feet and is always one step ahead of the game. This energy is extremely resourceful and if we try to do something one way, and fail, we’ll simply gather ourselves back up and try it again a different way.

Or we’ll change tack halfway through, subtly, quietly and without a fuss, so that almost nobody notices.

Thought processes are driven by passion and emotion when Mercury transits Scorpio, so we’ll always tend to go with what feels right or feels good.

However, with Scorpio energy, passion easily gives way to anger and spite, so difficult emotions are only ever a heartbeat away. Don’t expect to see full-scale arguments during Mercury in Scorpio, however – this is strong but silent type energy, where the seething takes place behind the scenes.

Curiosity and research are hugely boosted by Mercury’s transit of Scorpio, as our urge to dig deep and to uncover things goes into overdrive.

Uncomfortably searching questions are a hallmark of Mercury in Scorpio, although oddly enough we’re all much happier asking these of others than answering them ourselves!

Horoscopes: How Does Mercury Transit Scorpio Affect Each Zodiac Sign?

During the Mercury in Scorpio transit, each zodiac sign will find themselves thinking more deeply and more emotionally.

However, some sings will notice these effects much more than others, depending on the position of the planets in the individual natal charts concerned.


Mercury Transits Scorpio for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)

If you can’t forget, Aries, forgive. If you can’t forgive, ask yourself why not, considering that it’s you who is bearing the burden for what was done to you.

This is a good time to seek therapy or mental health help, but most of all, it’s a good time to reclaim your own power.


Mercury Transits Scorpio for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)

Tell your loved ones how much they mean to you and wear your heart on your sleeve, Taurus. This Mercury transit empowers your emotions, so don’t feel afraid to show them and to use them.

Act from the heart if in doubt, because logic does not have all the answers for you yet.


Mercury Transits Scorpio for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)

Try not to be inflexible when it comes to your schedules and daily routines. Something has to change, whether that’s forced on you by circumstances or simply necessary for your own good.

You won’t enjoy disruption to your daily life but think of it as a challenge and embrace it with your whole heart.


Mercury Transits Scorpio for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)

Let your emotions out through poetry, music, art and journaling, Cancer.

The Mercury in Scorpio transit unleashes the power of the water signs, and now it’s your turn to show how emotions, feelings and sensitivities can be powerful forces for good if used and channeled in the right way.


Mercury Transits Scorpio for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 21)

Focus on your family, Leo, getting back in touch with distant loved ones and spending plenty of time with those at home.

You’ll enjoy researching family history as a project together, or perhaps spending time on old-fashioned board games. Simplify family life so that you can spend quality time together during this transit.


Mercury Transits Scorpio for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22 – September 21)

Your words have extra power during this Mercury in Scorpio transit, but use them for good, not ill.

It’s all too easy to hurt others with what you say or write now, Virgo, and you know exactly how to twist the knife if you choose to – but choose kindness instead, especially on social media.


Mercury Transits Scorpio for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22 – October 22)

Use this Mercury in Scorpio transit to sort out your feelings towards money and finances, Libra. You love to spend, but at the same time you feel guilty – what’s that all about?

Work towards a healthier relationship with your finances and get expert advice if you need it.


Mercury Transits Scorpio for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)

With Mercury in your own sign, it’s the perfect time for researching, studying or digging deep into a mystery. Be careful not to become obsessive over a new interest, however; you do tend to take things to extremes.

Verbally, you’re very much in control now, and it’s a good time for making a solid first impression.


Mercury Transits Scorpio for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)

It’s not so much what you say right now but how you say it, Sagittarius. You can get your message across harshly or kindly. Which will you choose, and why?

Others are looking to you for leadership, but it’s important that you take the spiritual high road in all that you do right now. Can you lead from the heart?


Mercury Transits Scorpio for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 18)

Try not to be overly suspicious of new people during this transit, Capricorn. It’s as if you want to make new friends, but you also want them to pass some kind of unspoken loyalty test before they get anywhere near you.

Stop being paranoid. Be open, be welcoming, be engaging and you’ll quickly find people flocking to your side.


Mercury Transits Scorpio for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19 – February 17)

It’s an ambitious Mercury in Scorpio transit for you, Aquarius, but there’s a potentially manipulative and darker edge here too, especially in your career.

Try to keep your motives open and honest and avoid throwing anyone else under the bus, even though you could. Just because you can get away with something doesn’t mean it’s OK.


Mercury Transits Scorpio for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)

Restlessness and resentment may seep in now if you’re unable to travel or to get the new experiences you crave, Pisces.

Instead of focusing on what you can’t do, focus on what you can do. This is an excellent time for self-help or self-development of any kind, so learn something new, stretch your mind, set yourself a challenge – and enjoy.

    Hi Kelli, Michelle here The Brave One. Thanks so much for the option of sending you a video of my feedback. I did attend the lunar event and I thought it was amazing as are you. My favorite part was your comments several times on your kind of Gemini like influence as you kind of bounced around and move from topic to topic what that really said to me and showed to me and I'm sure everyone in the event is that you're so passionate about what you're doing. And getting information out to everybody and really wanting to include everybody and having everyone take something away from the event, which I think happened. I think it was super successful and you make it fun because you are so passionate about what you do. So I'm so looking forward to next Thursday. I can't wait and until then I wish for you in abundance of well-being. Enjoy. Thanks.

    Kelli I don't know whether you can hear me on this but I so adore you and respect you and love your classes. I do however find it really distracting when you're reading the charts and you go back and forth because you're one of the most knowledgeable astrologers that I have ever spent time with and I so value. Ooh your information but going back and forth. It is really really hard. My name is Barbara Dickson. My birth date is January 10th 1953. I was born at 7:20 p.m. In Glen Ridge, New Jersey. I'm former media person, but I have such respect for you and it's just very distracting. But because everything you offer is beyond. Using and I wish there was a way for the people who write into you and the people that you respond to if there was a way that that could be contained somehow and not done when you're sharing things with us because it just it makes it very disjointed. But otherwise your knowledge is beyond. So many people that I have ever met, so I thank you ever so much. I don't know whether you will get this because as much as my tech abilities are not great. I wish they were better, but I thank you so much, and I value you and every way personally and professionally, so thank you for everything you do. Thank you.

    Hello, beautiful. Kelli. You are one of my fondest discoveries. Sorry, it's loud back here. I don't know if you can hear me. I have been following you for some time. And now is a good a time as any to tell you how deeply appreciative I am for you. Your existence, your work, your offerings to the world, your wealth of knowledge or generosity and absolutely York. Mind and luminescent soul. We can all use the dose of Kelly everyday. You have. Greatly helped me navigate through the cosmic energies, and I look forward to your videos every week. So thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I am blessed to have you and again, keep it coming. You're doing so great and the world loves you. The camera loves you. I love you. Thank you so much. And so many love and blessings to you.

    Hi Kelli. Thank you. I think it's almost about a year since I have been upset, but following you and getting your emails that are very encouraging and life-changing. It's amazing how I would have gone through life and gone through things and then I reach your astrology and it's dead on especially right now. You're hitting it hard on my love life... crazy, you know! And so I really appreciate it! It's really helped move my life in a totally different direction. It's just an extra encouragement that I need for the day. I've been sending information out to friends who may want to get into astrology because I just trust what you say and it's just really amazing and it's also very encouraging. I just want to say thank you and also thank you for taking the time to even send a video just to have feedback and this is like a super cool experience. So my name is Kamil and I just want to say thank you so much for just the work that you do. It's God's work and it's encouraging and I just I love it. Thank you so much for just taking the time. Like I said, to send a video to just reach out and just to see how we're doing is special. So thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you, thank you. And I'll continue to give you feedback and continue to keep reading. Have a good day. Bye.
