If it’s feeling intense right now, it means you’re listening. But you’re also not alone.
If there was only one major transit this year ~ the Saturn Pluto conjunction occurring in January ~ we could say that the start of the year is intense but after it passes you can breathe out and get back to your life. Without wanting to play on already existing fears, it’s important we shift our view from a minor obstacle we can work through – to understanding that January is a precursor for what this year, and the future, holds. Collectively we’ve created an apocalyptic narrative that begins and ends, not one that we have to endure, slowly.
The current systems of power we’re governed by have been reigning supreme for longer than any of us have been alive. They’re not going down without a fight, which is why we’re seeing extreme responses of control, fear mongering and defence, both globally as well as personally.
If Capricorn is good at anything it’s the long-haul. Take stock of where you’re feeling vulnerable, what is potentially threatening your pocket of security in the world, and who and what holds deepest value to you. Solidarity and community connections will be our life blood when these power structures buckle under pressure.
November 11 marks the midway point of this Mercury retrograde in Scorpio cycle.
Today the Sun, the great illuminator, takes Mercury under its wing and protects it. Shielded by blazing light, all of Mercury’s qualities, all of the back tracking and digging, all that has been unearthed in the first part of this Retrograde cycle pause for a moments grace. This day holds the potential for razor sharp clarity, if only fleeting. From this point onwards Mercury is moving away from the Sun toward the deepest degree of the retrograde cycle where it will stop and move forward again. We have 9 days remaining to clear up, realign and sort out what Mercury has brought our attention to.
Mercury Rx in Scorpio Horoscopes
Each of us has Mercury kicking up dust somewhere in our charts. Whatever house Mercury is currently passing through will indicate where our attention is being drawn and what issues we’re being dragged down into the Underworld to deal with. This is not the only cycle coming to an end, and it’s not the only way in which we’re being asked to let go. But like any detailed work that needs to get done, it will sit there glaring at us until we do it.

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!
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!
Living in a capitalistic world, it’s so important to be aware of our own personal cycles. When it’s Summer outside and you’re experiencing a personal winter inside, without the right tools and language to help you say no, the tension between the 2 can become intense.
Capitalism would love it if we constantly existed in the state of fruition and fullness, but we don’t. With Saturn in full force in our consciousness these days, we’re becoming more aware than ever of what drives us, what we’re driving toward and what it is exactly we’re putting our energy into growing. Personally and collectively we’re all facing some tough questions about integrity, responsibility and what our energy is contributing to on a grand scale.
I use this image in readings to help illustrate personal / inner landscape. It’s such a potent reminder to honour your own rhythms and growth cycle, to not push outwardly when you’re being called inward and to not shy away from stepping up when it’s your time to be seen.
I’ll be running some workshops very soon VANCOUVER, in which you can learn about your own seasons, which times of the year call you inward and which times benefit applying for that dream job.
Summer is never trying to be winter, and an apple seed doesn’t grow into a Lemon tree. Honouring our own needs is sadly something we all need to cultivate; it’s not always encouraged. Looking at this image, where do you feel your inner landscape is represented? 🌱🌳🍎🍂
As Saturn gets real in Capricorn, I’m offering a whole bunch of different readings to help guide you through.
