Mercury, the planet of communication and technology, will be leaving the sign of Libra to enter the mysterious sign of Scorpio on October 9th. This transit will last until the end of October and bring with it a welcomed depth to our interactions.
How Your Soul Communicates
Astrology allows you to see the personality traits and experiences your soul has chosen for this lifetime. Think of them as the tools needed to carry out your purpose. These tools are broken down into personal and transpersonal planets.
Your personal planets reflect your personality and individuality. These include the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. We call them the personal planets as they move somewhat quickly through the zodiac wheel and thus change signs often. For example, Mercury will transit a particular sign for about 15-60 days depending on retrograde cycles.
Your transpersonal planets reflect your experiences in the world and are indicators of your ever-changing journey. These include Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. We call these generational planets as they are in a particular sign for long periods of time so you would have generations that share a planet within a certain sign. For example, Neptune changes signs every 14 years.
The combination of personal and transpersonal planets in your birth chart is a beautiful representation of your soul and what your soul’s intentions are for this life. You cannot change these personality traits/tools but you can learn to work with them to create a life with ease, joy, and abundance.
Mercury in Scorpio
Regardless of what sign Mercury falls within your birth chart, everyone will feel the effects of Mercury’s journey through Scorpio. Those with natal Mercury in Scorpio or another Water sign (Cancer and Pisces) will embrace it more so than most. This is because our communications during this transit will go deep into our emotions.
We will be leaving the mental energy of Libra and enter the emotional waters of Scorpio. Your mind will become overshadowed by your heart center. Basically, your soul will now be speaking. Superficial communications just won’t do during this transit. You want to go deeper into the connections with others and share the stories of your soul. You will seek out a means to share via technology and not be afraid to put it out there.
We will also see this on a global level as well. More brave souls will be coming forward to voice their truth as Mercury travels through Scorpio, especially around October 22nd when Mercury forms a sextile to Pluto. This energy calls for us to dig into our truth and form a relationship with our power, to remove the walls that keep us hidden in the in the shadows. This would be a good time to look into various modalities of healing, especially ones that incorporate talk therapy.
Then on the 29th, a few days before Mercury transitions into Fire sign Sagittarius, we will get a boost from Jupiter as Mercury crosses over it along its path. Mercury forming a conjunction to Jupiter means it is time to manifest whatever you desire. You will be able to see things clearly and finally make a shift in how you communicate your soul to the world. Maybe you launch a business you are passionate about or decide to finally let someone know how you feel about them. Whatever it is, Jupiter will give a boost to Mercury and you will proceed with optimism and enthusiasm.
Mercury in Scorpio will bring about a change in how you communicate. It will help clear the way for your authenticity to shine. We had the chance to communicate what the mind wanted while in Libra, now it’s time to let the soul speak. Don’t be afraid to go deep as it is within the depths of ourselves we see the truth.
