“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
-- Carl Jung
“There are two types of secrets: the kind you want to keep in, and the kind you don't dare to let out.”
When Mercury moves into Scorpio from October 5 through October 28, forget about making small talk and make sure your lips are sealed -- unless you’re involved in a heavy make-out session! Scorpio is all about keeping secrets and taking them to the grave. Confidentiality is a must when dealing with matters of sex, life and death now.
When the messenger planet ruling our minds and communication style enters the deep and psychological waters of Scorpio, it’s time to dig into life’s mysteries and uncover all of the scandals for better or worse. Issues that may normally feel too dark or controversial are now perfect conversation topics. We are all more psychologically minded in these coming weeks. Superficial topics and responses will be shunned, so be prepared to go into the heart of the matter.
This is an excellent opportunity to expose any repressed feelings, fears or power struggles that have been conveniently swept under the rug. On the flip side, this transit can also provoke some of our greatest mental fears -- especially loss of control if we allow our minds to go into suspicious or worst-case-scenario thinking.
However, if we employ the higher octave of the Scorpio potential and use this influence to delve deeper into our own transformative potential and use our minds for healing and creativity instead of destruction, we will reap the true benefit of the transit. This is a time to get to the bottom of things so that the old psychic corpses (fixations, habits, grievances, fears, etc) can be relinquished and our minds can be reborn.
