Mercury in Scorpio:

Insights from Darkness

When Mercury arrives in Scorpio on October 29th, 2022, 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.

    By reading what my future has in store for me gives me a much better outlook. After being told I have a negative vibe that has been hovering over me most of my life preventing me to reaching my abundance , happy life style where I should already be living that life style. Instead I've been living a life that I've had to struggle to pinch every penny I have just to make it through the month. With this map I've received today it will lead me to the abundant life I'm suppose to be living. Now that I've had a glimpse of my future, it definitely looks brighter then where I am now.
