We all need to know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em, as the song goes. Our hyper-digital, social media age can sometimes have us believing that the more we share the more we are, but what the glaring light of the laptop screen can blind us to is the power of holding back. When we allow an idea, a relationship or a feeling to develop in its own time, without prematurely exposing it to the harsh light of conscious awareness, we give it the chance to thrive.

Mindful Mercury conjunct serious Saturn in Scorpio on October 8 carries this kind of wisdom, though it can easily have a tendency to feel inadequate (not that it would never admit it), unsure of its own intelligence and limited in its vision. Saturn constricts and Mercury communicates, so our thoughts and ideas are somehow on lockdown with this combination.

This aspect can lead to depression, but when appropriately applied, it can become a conscious restructuring of our thoughts through disciplined study and rigorous mindfulness. Scorpio teaches us about how we merge with another and how we share our resources with them. Scorpio energy can have a tendency to take over others, merging before it's appropriate in an attempt to feel secure and in control. This can feel manipulative and controlling, but mostly it's just an immature attempt at creating intimacy.

This is one of two Mercury conjunctions to Saturn, due to the fact that Mercury is about to go retrograde on October 21 for three weeks. It will move forward over Saturn this week, and then do a moonwalk back to cozy up to the cool taskmaster on October 29. It's worth taking note of the planetary combination when a retrograde planet connects with a celestial body for a second time. During a Mercury Retrograde cycle, we're bound to re-hash, review, rework, revise, relearn and recognize things that we've been bypassing.

This is a great time to edit and clean up projects that we started earlier in the year. The fact that Mercury is connecting with Saturn twice gives us a clue as to how to best work this energy. Saturn likes to fool us with "reality" to see if we will fall for the limits of this world and forget our spiritual nature completely. We're spiritual beings having a physical experience, and it's important to remember this during any Saturn transit.

In our career and financial life, it can be very beneficial at this time to keep a lid on things. There is a necessary seriousness that Saturn can teach fickle and flighty Mercury about. If we have big things to accomplish, we're wise to focus on doing it more than talking about it.
