Mercury in Scorpio:

Insights from Darkness

When Mercury arrives in Scorpio, 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.

 

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Mercury in Scorpio

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.

 

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Mercury in Scorpio

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.

 

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Mercury in Scorpio

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.

 

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Mercury in Scorpio

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.

 

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 22) During Mercury in Scorpio

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.

 

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 23 – September 22) During Mercury in Scorpio

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.

 

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 23 – October 22) During Mercury in Scorpio

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.

 

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Mercury in Scorpio

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.

 

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Mercury in Scorpio

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?

 

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 19) During Mercury in Scorpio

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.

 

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 20– February 17) During Mercury in Scorpio

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.

 

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Mercury in Scorpio

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.

    I can't describe how excited I was when I found out about this course with my favourite Astrologer Kelli Fox. It was absolutely FASCINATING! I highly recommend it to anyone, especially like me if you love astrology more as a hobby and just want to suck in as much information as you can. I loved all the extra pages of information you can go through that are linked up with Kelli's website when needing a greater understanding. I already can't wait to go back through the course again and finding out how much more I can learn. I hope there will be more courses in future with Kelli. She is the best!Cached

The only issue I have is occasionally on the site itself, some of the links don't seem to connect...like the birth/natal chart...whether through email or the search engine links, or even the ones here on the site. As far as the readings, reports, horoscopes, etc. go....A+ and then some!!!! Love you Kelli!Cached

    Kelli Fox makes Astrology fun and educational. Her honest excitement about sharing her knowledge comes thru with every reading. From the daily and weekly horoscopes thru to the monthly reports she delivers a way of navigating thru even the most troublesome aspects. And the weekly Zoom meetings with her email subscribers midweek, seriously help to plot a course through the upcoming astrological currents.Cached

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached

    Hi there! I am thoroughly enjoying receiving your horoscopes and informative information on how the planets are affecting our everyday lives. To say this year has been so unpredictable is an understatement, but when you explain how the planets are ‘behaving’, it makes much more sense to me. I have known about the spirit world from being a small child and am in fact a registered healer working in my local church helping and teaching as many people as I can. I feel very much the different energies in people who are unknown to me and can sum them up, usually with uncanny accuracy. A gift from God that I cherish and will never abuse.... if I do, I know it will be taken away from me. Thank you again for your insights and please keep them coming. Sending lots of hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗 to you and yours. 💜💞💜Cached
