Once upon a time, far, far ago and when I say that I mean October 31, Mercury turned retrograde and now today at 11:11 PST it will station direct. I promise you at that time I will get on my hands and knees and say to all that is holy, “Thank you.”
How were your emotions for the last three weeks? Were you pulled super high and super low? Was something raw exposed in you? Maybe something so raw you didn’t even know you carried it in your body, your mind and your soul. Mercury retrograde in Scorpio blurs our mental with our emotional. When these two come together, circumstances are so extreme that it gives us a chance to get rewired. At the end this rewiring will allow us to access our power and empowerment. Where we had corrupted thinking or thinking that no longer serves us we now have fresh thinking. We may feel a bit battled fatigued but still the thinking has gone through a death and rebirth and now there is a newness.
Between now and Dec 7 we will revisit some of the issues that took place since Halloween and we will process it with a new empowered feeling. What have learned a lot about ourselves in the last three weeks, now, how can we use this newness to serve us?
Finally, it is safe to replace that broken electronic thing that melted during the retrograde. Or if you are like me figure out to get your email working again. Blech.

Things which have been hidden could be unleashed or revealed early this week with considerable force and intensity.
Mercury Back To Direct Motion
Firstly, communication planet, Mercury, turns direct after three weeks on go slow. This takes place tomorrow, November 20th (19:12 GMT). Mercury has spent its whole retrograde phase in Scorpio, the star sign linked to secrets, psycho-analysis, detective work, deep emotions and regeneration.
Listen out for news or information which comes to light when Mercury turns direct. Here are some other ways to use this powerful shift, as Mercury plugs back in and the lights go back on:
try again – second chances are a classic Mercury direct theme
sort out any misunderstandings
consider what Mercury retrograde taught you, i.e. where are you wasting your time?
sort out a muddle or a mess
speak your mind – Mercury in Scorpio is laser sharp
initiate a conversation
launch a new project, idea, plan
write a list – keep it short, deal with what’s most important or urgent in your life
do what you say you will, recommit to a promise
handle any technological or transport issues
renew your energy & focus
Mars Enters Scorpio
Mercury’s change of direction feels extra powerful because today, November 19th, Mars, enters Scorpio, where it remains until January 3rd, 2020.
Action planet, Mars, is moving back into its sign of rulership, Scorpio, after six long weeks in Libra, its sign of detriment. Mars is at home in Scorpio, where it can get things done with laser focus, courage and determination.
Now’s not the time to prioritise other people’s needs; this is about focusing on you and doing what’s right to heal, transform and resolve your personal situation.
Mars in Scorpio is fearless, perfect for honing in on an important task, being bold and brave, tackling a taboo area or subject. If there’s something in your life you’ve been putting off, this would be the ideal time to dig deep, take action and speak your mind.
Ideally, do so before the weekend, when new planetary factors kick in. This week’s astrology isn’t about ignoring the difficult stuff. Instead, it’s time to face whatever’s been lurking beneath the surface and take a stand on what’s truly important in your life. Scorpio is the sign linked to life, death & rebirth – what’s emerging from the dark, hidden places?
“You must do the things you think you cannot do”
Eleanor Roosevelt, Sun Libra, Mars Scorpio
Here’s a quick reminder of the areas of your life ruled by Scorpio.
Read both your Sun sign and your Ascendant for a comprehensive guide:
Aries – shared finances & all things taboo
Taurus – love & relationships
Gemini – job & health
Cancer – new birth i.e. kids, love, creative project
