September 27: Laser-focused Communications

Mercury enters Scorpio at 12:41 a.m.

Overnight, Mercury slips into nocturnal Scorpio, leaving light and peaceable Libra behind, for now. This shift brings the theme and tone of communications into the world of hidden powers, shadow work, and deep intuition. These facets rouse the most potent emotional dynamics in our conversations, which will be active for a few months.

Mercury will not entirely leave Scorpio this year until December 1, since it will go retrograde on October 13. During its retrograde journey, the planet of messages and currency will retreat to Libra on October 27, then turning direct again on November 3. Mercury will then re-enter Scorpio on November 10, taking us back into the deep, mysterious territory we will explore starting today.

Pay attention to the themes that arise in your mental processes and communications over the upcoming weeks, as we will be revisiting these with evolved awareness later on.


The moon is opposite Venus at 10:04 p.m.

Late night, the Aquarian moon comes into polarity with Venus in bold Leo, highlighting emotions and desires. This oppositional aspect will bring our emotions up to the surface. These feelings relate to our romantic relationships, or our yearnings to find these. This aspect can be celebratory and indulgent. It can also rouse passions and stimulate bold heartfelt expressions.

We may feel an urgency to tell someone how we are truly feeling, as if time is running out, or as if the feeling has been building up to a big release. We may also have to recalibrate how much emotional energy we are putting into our love relationships. The Aquarius moon may emphasize the ways we need to stay somewhat objective. The flip side of this is that some of us may want to remain detached in matters of love, but Venus in Leo is asking us to be brave, go all-in, and experience the fullness of our feelings. As we can see, this moon/Venus opposition may create an exciting tension for us to explore tonight, and resolve if possible.
