Scorpio isn't the most transparent of signs. It feels deeply -- too deeply at times -- making the energy of the sign primarily self-protective. Being vulnerable isn't exactly the trait associated with a Scorpion. This sign deals with secrets, lies, sex and espionage -- not your typical dinner-table conversations.

Remembering that we all contain each sign within us, the zodiac can be used as a way of understanding the different facets of being human. As the planets move through the zodiacal wheel, astrological doctrine teaches us that these traits are somehow pulled out of us, or on display in the natural world in some or many ways. The transits of the planets can also be used as a way of guiding us through the teachings of each combination by meditating on the wisdom offered through the mixing of energies between signs and planets.

This week, Mercury in Scorpio trines Jupiter in Cancer. Trines are soft, flowing aspects that promote harmony, well-being and opportunities for opening to life's lessons in non-threatening ways. Trines are like seeing a charming friend who brings out the best of us, their generosity promotes our generosity.

Mercury symbolizes our mind and tends to fragment things, breaking them up so they can be understood. In Scorpio, Mercury can be a great detective, a fantastic researcher or an undercover agent. It's a wonderful opportunity to do some deeper digging in terms of understanding how we are using our minds -- but more to the point, how our minds are using us.

Jupiter in Cancer is "exalted" meaning that it's very comfortable, like going to your best friend's house, you know where the glasses are and it’s okay to go ahead and pour yourself something. In general, Jupiter brings good feelings, big feelings, feelings of openness and abundance. Cold, hard facts don't really phase Jupiter's optimism. This planet's influence has a way of creating reality by believing that it's possible. Jupiter's influence makes us want to rise to the occasion and helps us add to whatever we are involved in.

Jupiter in Cancer wants to promote connectedness, like a well-functioning family and a positive experience of belonging. This influence can have us waxing poetic about whatever is inspiring us in the moment. It's always good to use Jupiter's influence, take a risk and be generous in your compliments, sincere in your feedback and nurturing in all your communications.
