"The human race tends to remember the abuses to which it has been subjected rather than the endearments. What's left of kisses? Wounds, however, leave scars."

-- Bertolt Brecht

On October 21, the communication planet will hit the reverse groove again, but this time in the fixed and mysterious waters of Scorpio. Mercury in Scorpio already tends to be quite secretive and non-verbal when not in retrograde, so you can imagine how subterranean conversations are about to become.

Of course, everyone goes into total back-up-your-i-objects mode when Mercury Retrograde strikes, and there is the usual don't-sign-important-contracts-or-make-major-decision alerts. However, this particular Mercury Retrograde is about to take us into such elusive subterranean territory that computers and contracts will seem like small potatoes compared to the intense deluge of skeletons our psyches are about to unleash.

This is the time for digging deep to heal the wounds of the past. There is always a nostalgic and retrospective energy to Mercury Retrograde, but this particular one will have a more emotionally driven tone. In fact, there could be a downright obsessive quality as our minds tend to get fixated on attachments or passions of the past.

It's seductive to go back to past lovers or sources of infatuation under this transit. It's also easier to get hung up on old emotional scars. If we can summon the more regenerative quality of this transit to heal and transform some of our more deeply entrenched psychological patterns, we will be using this Mercury Retrograde as a path for healing.

On the other hand, if we fall prey to the more destructive sides of this influence like jealousy, possessiveness and mental obsession, we could literally watch our minds become our own demise. Many secrets will be shared and potentially leaked under this influence, as Scorpio rules all-things private, buried and covert. Another survival strategy for Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio is to listen more and speak less. Words can get twisted and convoluted during this time, so less is definitely more.
