Happy Halloween! I hope your day is full of treats!
This is your friendly reminder that the Mercury retrograde in Scorpio begins today and lasts through November 20.
The Old Farmer's Almanac does a nice job of describing what we might expect with a retrograde in Scorpio:
"Emotions rule—not common sense—so beware. Avoid affairs of the heart. Passionate Scorpio is also secretive, and your secrets may seep out. Keep them in a diary."
Of course, I'm not an old-school or a paranoid astrologer and I do believe in free will, so take this advice lightly and spin it in a way that works for you.
Seeing where Mercury in Scorpio resides in your chart will also give more insight (email me your birth date, place, and time if you'd like to know).
As you communicate with others during this retrograde, try asking thoughtful questions and taking the time to really listen to the answers.
If something you hear or learn pulls on your jealousy, fear, or anger bone, remind yourself to take things slowly before reacting.
We are in a retrograde after all and delays are to be expected. Be sure to create your own slow-downs when needed to avoid miscommunication, hurting others, and painful consequences that no one wants.
What can feel like an annoying slow-down, usually has its meaning and purpose.

Here's to having the courage to investigate the deeper meaning of our lives that Scorpio invites.
Like the phoenix that emerges from the ashes, Scorpio in our lives may burn with intensity, but not without purpose. On the other side of that fire awaits transformation.
