Mercury will still stay nine weeks in Scorpio (its usual stay in a sign is 20 days) due to the retrograde period which starts on 31st October at 27°38’ and ends on 19th November at 11°45’ Scorpio.
A lot of secrets could come out when Mercury transits the enigmatic sign of Scorpio. Mainly because Mercury in Scorpio is a great detective, uncovering things that some or most of us would rather pull the carpet over.
Mercury might also go overboard in insults when and if perceiving wrong-doing and ideas and thoughts could get very fixed and obsessive too.
On the plus side with this transit…nothing, absolutely nothing, will be taboo (conversation-wise)!
Some interesting aspects:
7th October: opposite Uranus in Taurus (5°26’) – changing views quickly, being a poor listener, speaking without thinking, freedom of thought and amazing insights.
14th October, 13th and 20th November: sextile Saturn in Capricorn (14°28’, 16°23’, 17°50’) – criticism could be constructive, learning or teaching come easy, don’t overthink.
16th October, 13th and 20th November: trine Neptune R in Pisces (16°23’, 15°58’, 15°55’) – creative thinking, day dreaming, plans that come up now could be become reality when Neptune turns direct end November.
19th October, 9th November and 2nd December: sextile Pluto in Capricorn (20°42’, 20°58’, 21°30’) – a great moment to solve puzzles as you are able to penetrate below the surface of anything you care to put your mind to and the answers you come up with will be the real truth for you but you may have a hard job convincing others of this!
