Scorpio depths are not the periphery

Anyone else feel like they finally understand what it’s like to be a Scorpio 24/7? This Mercury retrograde in Scorpio (leading us toward the Pluto-Saturn conjunction in January😳) is Scorpio Season on full blast! Whoooooweeee!

Scorpio Season Mercury retrograde 2019

The effects might not be visible on the periphery, but so much is stirring inside, below the surface.

It’s not ‘normal’ for us to be existing with constant grief, over stimulation & anxiety, & no one is spared right now. Mercury retrograde cycles are great opportunities for us to go off line, spending less time in the loop of scrolling & more time listening to what’s asking for our attention.

Mercury rules communication, & listening is just as valid as output. Listen to your body, chew your food, watch your breathing & trust those who love you that can see your blind spots. Boundaries are there for self care!

For the duration of this Mercury Rx cycle I’m offering astrological updates on how to release what is asking to be detoxed, Scorpio style.

As Mercury stations retrograde, I’m noticing a repetition of issues arising from the Venus Retrograde cycle this time last year. Are you?
.
Venus retrograde in Aries 2017 was a hella time. How could we forget!? The descent into the underworld of our own worth posed hard questions about the fine line between our own needs and our needs with an other: #ariesproblems. Facing our shadow, we walked the razors edge toward redemption and self-determination, meeting Chiron deep in the pool of collective pain and wounding, only to arise again with a new definition of self and initiative in relationship. PHEW!

.
It was a lot, and what I’m noticing with Mercury covering that same terrain right now is that unresolved issues from that time are arising…the questions that were unanswered are on the table again, and Aries’ need for space, independence & initiative is HOT!

.
Wherever Aries is in your chart is where this dust is being kicked up. Retrograde times are not to be feared, it’s a time to tie up loose ends, to identify those things that aren’t working for you and to realign yourself with your own path #ariesstyle
.
So, what came up this time last year in the Venus retrograde cycle? What patterns are you seeing re-emerge at this time that need tending to? What is self-determination for you personally and in your relationships? What can’t you ignore anymore? If you had to be the Fool and jump right now, what would that look like? What do you need?
.
Mercury and the Sun will cross paths on April 1st – and you get to define what it means to be the Fool. There are other folks who are more versed on Tarot than I am who could speak to Fool energy in relation to this Aries season & I’d love to hear about it! WHAT IS THE FOOL CARD ABOUT & HOW CAN WE EMBRACE IT AT THIS TIME?! @meowlchemist @dreamy.sea@magichourastrology @aliawalston@abbeyjadetarot 🔮
