Imma need y’all to chill, Mercury Retrograde really isn’t all that serious. You’re not doomed this season, nor are you all getting broken up with. Relax, it’s time to take a bath and reflect.
Mercury is the planet that rules over communication, messages, and it is opportunistic in nature. Opportunity knocks, even when this planet is in retrograde. Between October 31st until November 20th, Mercury wants us to think carefully about the words we create. Each word is a commitment, you can’t undo messages you’ve already sent off. When you speak ill of someone, you draw energy and invoke senses to either confirm or deny the words spoken.
During retrograde, Mercury is going to be in the mysterious and enchanting waters of Scorpio. Scorpio energy is the bottom of the ocean, the depth, the light before darkness is uninvited. I do not believe in using the concept of “good” or “bad” to describe the energies. Energy is energy, Scorpio is just one way in which an energy expresses itself. Therefore, the energy of Mercury retrograde in Scorpio requires us to be mindful that-
What we see is not even remotely a fully formed picture.
There is the water that you can see from the land, the water that you can see when you dive in, and the water you encounter when you drown in it. We are being invited into the deep Scorpio sea, which means we must understand that things aren’t as shallow as they seem. Relationships can be deepened or crumble because of a lack of depth. Messages may be retracted or misunderstood, which can lead to deeper conversations. This is good, you have to know how deep it is to fully understand and empathize with it.
Harmful and hurtful things will occur this Mercury retrograde period, but that’s neither the Universe, nor the planets’ fault. You are human, you have a brain, a soul, and you are capable of free will. Use this Scorpio season to ask the questions that you’ve held back. Write, take note of your thoughts, put your dreams on a pieces of paper.
The universe rewards effort, and blessings often come in disguise. Don’t jump to every person who comes back, some deep sea creatures will be playing tricks on you (we all have our motives). Critically think my love, this season doesn’t have to be a bad one.
