Mercury’s Reflection in Scorpio,
Returning to Responsible Rebirth
We know you’ve been already feeling the turbulence of Mercury Retrograde coming, and our Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Aries 18 October certainly calls that all bets for forward motion are off, even a few days before it officially begins. So, being you should be aware about Mercury’s Approach & The 5 Things You Need To Know, are you now ready for some necessary retreat and yes, relax time to begin?

Reaping Reward Under Mercury Retrograde
Remember, this is the true time to get your dictionary out and revel in these “re” action words, for Mercury’s backwards motion through the 18 to 02 degrees of Scorpio will request nothing else but that you are responsible to this mighty call. With Scorpio being the very sign in our Zodiac skies who is the power behind all that chooses to transform and experience rebirth, there will be no escaping taking time to return to your core and honor the joys that regeneration is able to bring. It’s time to go deep within the scope of life here and ponder folks.
Why this Mercury backtracking passage will find us feeling a bit more restricted than how it typically does play out will be the presence of Saturn in Scorpio, who has been transforming the truth here for over a year, currently transiting from 12 to 14 degrees. Think about that blindfolded planet Mercury again, not looking where he is going, who will be playing in very close quarters to the very planet who likes things slow and patient in life to begin with. The key word of responsibility, Saturn’s definite “mo,” is how anyone will find they must respond to this reflective request.
Those wishing to react and remain in resistance to the normal flux of changes involving our schedules, routines, communications, information exchanges and any mechanism that moves, deciding instead to go forward with long term plans will find themselves with intense lessons to learn. Known as the Karmic Adjustor, Saturn is like a Father as well as he governs from above, and when we don’t listen to Saturn, we might as well bang our heads up against the wall after handcuffing ourselves. We will be certainly be coined the definition of insanity, because if we do not choose to be silent, we’ll be ignoring what we are meant to be learning from the experiences that will present themselves to us.
Beneficial time spent under this particular passage will be wisely spent getting all unfinished business in this area of the life reassessed, reviewed, and rehashed. What old projects are not done here? What can you research? What have you forgotten about? Who haven’t you spoken to from this area in your life in a while? Reconnect with the past, clear it up, and make way for new beginnings that promise to come here, for they very soon will be emerging in rebirth.
Be on the look out for your Lunar-O-Scope 03 November, for while we will still be under Mercury Rx, we will have a New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, right in the whole mix with Saturn, so while we will be needing to still remain in reflection here, there is another requirement to be alert to information being presented to us from our feelings, and then take action for the future once November 10th has passed.
To Do and Not To Do Under Mercury Retrograde
Remain in the eye of any possible storm around you, patience is especially required under this Mercury Rx round of review. These handy tips can help bring ease over this upcoming period to allow personal success to be reaped!
*Expect CHANGE: in travel, routines, communications & schedules to occur suddenly
*Give yourself extra time to get where you’re going
*Spend time in the RE’s:
Relax, Rest, Reread, Rewrite, Revisit, Reconnect, Reflect, Redo, Recharge!
*Have Plan B (and Plan C, D or E if necessary) always ready to go
*Gravitate to Responding vs. Reacting!
*“Freak out” when changes come up
*Rush: speaking, driving, whatever involves movement in your life
A great practice is to take pause & count to 10 before doing anything!
*Sign important documents
*Initiate or buy anything new that you wish to have long-term success with.
When to Slowly Move Forward Under The Shadow
As the Approach began 01 October, when Mercury was last at the 02 degree Scorpio point he will return to by 10 November, we started to see what we will be called to truly reflect and reassess under the Retrograde passage itself. Until 27 November, we are under the Shadow period, where it will take Mercury this much time to retrace his backwards steps until he is back over that 18 degrees of Scorpio once more. And Viola! We’ll be complete for another review session where our Messenger is concerned until mid winter 2014. Know, under the Shadow, it is safe to move forward once more, but do be sure to still take on an air of caution and make sure the details involved are the way you wish them to be.
Lexigrams and Mercury Retrograde
One last piece of star secret advice comes from the wisdom of Lexigrams, what’s really in a name. As we poetically phrase the anagrams we can derive from any word, name, or in this case, title: we can spell out the truth that leads us to also discover what we are best to do under this passage called Mercury Retrograde to find our resolve within it.

Much Gratitude & LOVE to EVOLVE to You Both, Happy Reflecting =)
love reading what you have to tell us. so true about retrograde. I have been reacting vs acting. Thanks as always!
Definitely Fran it is the response form of the acting we always need to be within under MRx, and as i also always say, any word that begins with “re” Happy Reflecting =)
Thank so much my friend for such awesome insight! I look forward to hearing more always your friend Sharon!
Lol, that didn’t go to both 😉 My pleasure Dear Sharon always and much LOVE to EVOLVE under this precious time coming up for review =)

Lol, Scorpio will bring out the secrets to be revealed. I have seen such profound activity in the first few days of this one that has asked for whatever was not already exposed to the surface to be dealt with, it’s crying for that review and redo now. Many thanks for sharing!
Thanks for “re”minding me to “re”visit my “re”sponsibilites to “re”birth myself with “re”st. Love the article.
Many thanks for your affirmation Abigail. Happy Reflecting, Retreating and my most favored Mercury Rx RE word RELAX! =)
May I ask for your opinion? My house has been on the market for 6+ months. Today I received an offer on it. Tomorrow I meet with the realtor to look at the contract, and possibly sign the selling agreement. Will mercury retrograde have an impact on this deal? I wish the timing was different. Thank you Sharita.
This really would fall under a Star Chat consultation. I would need to properly assess, your personal information and charts to be absolutely fully accurate in answering this question. Depending upon where the current MRx is personally affecting your life via the natal chart beyond the sun sign perspective, as well as infusing what your current numerological forecast indicates. I would say on an extremely general note, if you sign, you mostly certainly will see complications.
Be sure as well Donna to check in with your Empowerscope for this week, link under Radio to your right here on the site. If you did sign anything today, be prepared for huge mix ups and errors, for the Moon Void of Course, was on all day long through 11:45pm EDT this evening. Moon VOC is explained on the Empowerscopes page. When you combo Mercury Rx, Moon VOC and a Waning Moon…. this is just not a time for forward motion for anyone. But again, your personal read on this would be the most accurate assessment beyond answering you generally.
