Mercury retrograde is so much more than computer glitches, thwarted plans, and communication breakdowns, it is a time of reflecting upon how we think and perceive our world. Continuing deeper reflection upon the subtle nuances we create and react to in our relationships, Mercury retrograde in Scorpio is a window of time that enables us to completely regenerate our perspective on life. Having conversations that address insecurities and expose vulnerabilities releases their control over us, thus clearing our lens and expanding our capacity for new perspectives and expansion of consciousness. Reflection continues through Wednesday, November 20th when Mercury stations direct at 11° Scorpio.

Mercury stationing retrograde today at 27° Scorpio just before it reaches Venus at 28° Scorpio brings to light the underlying currents of power struggles and past trauma we are afraid to face and learn about ourselves and our relationships. Facing our trauma is difficult work and not for the faint of heart, but we are given the opportunity now to reflect upon these issues for the next month, as Mercury goes back through Scorpio. When it reaches the Sun at 18° Scorpio on November 11th, we will more fully understand these matters and how to express them outwardly. As is always the case with Mercury retrograde, be mindful of reflection. It is the ideal time to be introspective about matters relating to how we manage our lives, in particular our relationships, sexuality, limitations, and secrets (Scorpio). Growth comes through reflection and action, the latter being the most difficult to actualize.

Moon joins Jupiter at 23° Sagittarius later this morning, bringing us an opportunity to expand our consciousness into these reaches of reflection in order to better illuminate the resolutions we are facing with our own identity. Our emotional body is awakening. Nurture it and remind it that it is safe in your own embrace.

We start today with a productive sextile between Venus at 20° Scorpio and Pluto at 20° Capricorn. Because it occurs before sunrise, it sets the tone for the day. This is an opportune transit to work together to accomplish some of the deep emotional healing we’ve been avoiding. Mercury nearby at 25° Scorpio helps us dig these feelings up and communicate them to each other. Take time in the morning to recall any roots of insecurity that you’ve so badly wanted to face and lay to rest. The harmonies of the day support the sharing of these with someone we love and trust. The Venus/Pluto sextile is the kind of transit, especially in Scorpio and Capricorn, that seeks to accomplish something deeply meaningful. These forces bring magic through the merging of souls, hard work, right intention, and unyielding commitment to begin again. What better way to prepare for the New Moon in Scorpio arriving late Sunday night!

The deepest depths of Gaia’s oceans crawling with undiscovered life. Waters cold and dark, easily mistaken for another world, are the essence of Pluto’s domain, Hades’ haven. Lurking just above these nethers lie creatures with phosphorescent beams of light probing up through miles of muted silence into the corners of our past, guiding us where we need to go, giving light where there was only darkness. Sweeping around our memory and confusion demanding we envelope ourselves in it, the revelations rain down upon our psyches and bathe us in the Sacred Mysteries. Awakening to brighter seas and faster tides, we greet the swarming masses of myriad life all around us with vibrant awe and wonder. How dark must we go, how deep must we see, how lost must we feel before the doors of the denizens of the Underworld open to our new birth? What ghastly grim reaping must we endure before we can know serenity? The Shadows of our consciousness stretch far back beyond our mother’s face. The realms unseen are not for the faint of heart. Not enough is not an option. Too much is Scorpio’s tune. When pain seeps in, expect more. When fear haunts you, expect more. The gloves come off and the bells ring. Your escapades through the dark nights of your soul find you at last on the shores of the freedom and opportunities of Sagittarius. The revelations gleaming from your experiences of having gone astray wash over you like warm ecstasy and exotic nectar. Quiet your mind and swim in the clear vast lagoons of tranquility. There will be battles still, but your valor has bestowed an honor upon you that you’ve never known.
