Slide Into Scorpio
With Scorpio season just over the horizon, a few planets have started moving her way, transiting into her place in the sky. Next up is Mercury, which will be transiting into Scorpio on October 22nd, drawing out all of the sign's very particular energies. That's not to say they're bad, they're actually incredibly powerful, as Scorpio holds a lot of strength and fortitude.
Mix that with Mercury's domain of thought and communication, and we'll be seeing some very productive conversations happening over the next little while. That's not all, though, this transit has plenty more in store for all of us.
Under The Surface
Scorpio, being a water sign, is associated with emotions, intuition, and mystery. It's thought of as one of the 'darker' signs, one that works more in shadow than in light, that prefers to influence things from behind the scenes. This may sound foreboding, but it's actually very important when it comes to this transit in particular.
Mercury and Scorpio's combined traits encourage us to delve beneath the surface, to explore the hidden truths, and really analyze the motivations that lie beneath the words and actions of everyone we interact with, including ourselves. Conversations become more profound and intense as people are drawn to meaningful discussions and are less interested in superficial chitchat.
Scorpio's influence enhances our intuition and perception. We become more attuned to non-verbal cues, allowing us to understand the unspoken feelings and desires of others. This heightened sensitivity enables us to connect with people on a deeper level, fostering emotional intimacy and trust.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, you might also find yourself feeling much more suspicious of those around you. You may be leaning more into privacy, into secrecy, wanting to make moves away from the watchful eyes of others. It's a peculiar balance, but it will help you better understand who in your circles you trust the most.
What We Keep Inside
This transit will also be a favorable time for exploring your own psyche, unraveling subconscious patterns, and gaining insights into your deepest desires and fears. Mercury, being the planet of thought, lends itself well to introspection, with Scorpio's influence pushing you toward the realm of secrets and lies.
What secrets have you been keeping from people? What lies have you told to protect yourself or the feelings of others? Do they still serve you? Would truth be the better option now?
Open To Change
Scorpio is a sign associated with transformation and rebirth. We shouldn't come out of this transit with the same beliefs, thoughts, systems, and patterns that we did going into it. The way in which we view at least one area or issue in our lives should change.
This change won't be something to fear, either. It will be necessary for you to move beyond whatever it was that was troubling you. Nothing ever gets done if it remains stagnant, but it can be hard to let go of things we've clung to for so long. This transit will fill you with the courage to finally set your sights elsewhere and let this moment fade into the past.
How To Use This Transit
So, if we're ready to embrace this change, to delve into our psyche, to use this transit to our advantage, how can we do that? What should we do to harness its energy? There are a few ways you can channel into this transit and truly make the most of it.
To start, embrace vulnerability in your conversations, allowing yourself to express your true feelings and thoughts without fear of judgment. Don't just wait for these talks to come your way either, be the instigator! Send that first message, bring up that touchy subject, you have to be the driving force here.
Call And Response
Once you get talking, really engage in deep, meaningful conversations with friends and loved ones. Explore topics that matter to you on a profound level. Play devil's advocate, examine differing viewpoints, and really see things from all angles to better understand your own position.
It's not just about talking, either. Pay attention not only to the words but also to the emotions behind them. Practice active listening to truly understand what others are communicating. Respond with empathy and compassion.
But, as discussed, this transit isn't just about communication, it's also about introspection and the interrogation of our hidden selves. Journaling can be a powerful tool for both of these goals. Write about your emotions, fears, and desires. Explore your subconscious as deep as you can, then keep going deeper. See what surprises you find.
Once you've done that, identify limiting beliefs and thought patterns that no longer serve you. Release them with the intention of transforming your mindset and embracing a more positive and empowered way of thinking.
Show The World
All of these traits together really highlight how much this transit is about authenticity. It's about dropping the masks we wear, shedding our outermost layer, and revealing our more vulnerable versions to the world. It's unfamiliar, it's scary, but it's also exhilarating, especially when we see that people will continue to love us for our truest selves.
Let this transit be a catalyst for positive, needed change. See how much the world opens up once you better understand the deepest corners of your own mind.
Though this transit will have you feeling more confident in being your truest self, you may feel like you need some extra guidance to set you on the right path. That north star can be found within your own personal birth chart and can be uncovered with proper analysis.
