Unveiling Hidden Truths | Mercury Retrograde In Scorpio

By October 14, 2020 October 17th, 2020 Astrology

Dear Friends,

Hi! It’s Luna, here with your Mercury Retrograde report.

Are you in the midst of a mysterious or confusing situation you’d like to see more clearly? If so, chances are you will have an opportunity to get to the bottom of it before the end of the month. 

From October 13th until November 3rd, Mercury will be in its last retrograde of 2020. During this time, you may find yourself retracing your steps to finally make sense of something that has been puzzling you for some time.

This Mercury Retrograde begins in the watery, psychological sign of Scorpio and ends in the airy, partnership focused sign of Libra. In these placements, Mercury Retrograde’s power of review and revision will help you look under the covers and figure out what’s really going on in your love life and close relationships.

However, if you’re not careful, your investigative approach may end up doing more damage to your situation than you’d hoped for.

Let’s take a closer look at what’s unfolding this month, and find out how you can make the most of this retrograde while minimizing its negative aspects. 

Discovering Someone Else’s True Motive

The Buddha once said, “Three things cannot remain hidden long; the sun, the moon, and the truth.” Astrologically, now is one of those times when the truth cannot remain hidden. 

Over the next two weeks, until Mercury retrogrades into Libra on October 27th, you’re posed to receive cosmic assistance in getting to the bottom of any intimacy, psychological or power issues in your life. Whatever is being withheld from you will naturally come to light, likely without too much effort on your part. 

While Mercury is retrograding in Scorpio, any devious, deceitful, or dishonest behavior is more easily exposed. It’s as if the universe is conspiring to bring people together at the perfect time and place, setting up the guilty party to unwittingly reveal their motives to the very person they are trying to hide from. 

Knowing the right questions and who to ask them to can play an important role in revealing the truth right now. Scorpio is a psychological sign, and doesn’t shy away from using its understanding of others motives to gain knowledge and power.

You might find others are more willing to engage in gossip right now. Just keep in mind that not everything you hear is true. Make sure you have all the facts before confronting someone, otherwise you may damage an otherwise good relationship.

Psychological Rebirth, or Just Drama?

The tendency to obsess or take a situation to the extremes is a very real possibility during this retrograde, so it’s important to know when to stop looking for an answer that may not be there. 

Be mindful to not put your nose in places it doesn’t belong or stir up unnecessary drama, otherwise it may come back to bite you later. You may need to make an extra effort to stay grounded, be considerate of others, and to avoid making assumptions for the next three weeks. 

If you’ve been planning on doing something behind someone’s back, don’t. Firstly, because it’s generally not a kind or mature thing to do. Secondly, due to Mercury’s influence, you are more likely to get caught, either now, or down the road. However, if you must do something without someone finding out, wait until November to pursue your scheme. 

At its best, this Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio can mark a time of psychological renewal for you. Old thinking habits, particularly those tending toward obsession or rumination, can be released and restructured into a new, more fulfilling mental focus and motivation. 

From now until October 27th, it can be especially beneficial to receive counseling or seek resolution to a longstanding, psychological or sexual problem. This retrograde creates an opportunity to integrate a deeper understanding of your own inner workings, and move forward with less suspicion and doubt holding you back.

Art therapy, journaling, or meditation can provide a valuable reflection into your psyche and allow you to release old memories or emotions that may be preventing you from mentally moving forward in your life.

Get prepped for another flavor of retrograde energy, because in the last week of the retrograde, Mercury will move out of Scorpio and into Libra. This will give you a brief, but powerful opportunity to reevaluate and rethink your communication, connection, and commitment in your relationships.

What Do You Really Need In Your Partnerships?

On October 27th Mercury leaves Scorpio and enters Libra. This date marks the opening of a week long window during which your close partnerships will be under review.

Communication with your partner may not go smoothly at this time, so try to be patient and wait to have big discussions until after November 3rd. 

As you may have noticed, Mercury Retrograde ends on Election Day this year, and tensions will be high leading up to this date. Be gentle with yourself and others around this time, as the atmospheric stress will likely be palpable. 

You may notice some obvious red flags in your relationship between October 27th and November 3rd. If so, the clarity you need to determine whether to break off your partnership altogether, or make important reforms in how you communicate, will be available to you now.

Libra is represented by the scales, so if you’ve been giving or taking too much, the inequity will become obvious, and may result in arguments. Stay fair to yourself and your partner, and you will pass through this retrograde with a new understanding that can bring you closer together as a couple.

As with all Mercury Retrogrades, if you can, avoid signing contracts and buying electronics or anything with electronic components until after November 3rd. This includes vehicles and gadgets. 

Mercury Retrograde is notorious for bringing our exes back into the picture, so if you’re interested in making amends with someone, now could be a good time to do so. If you’re considering taking someone back, be careful. Remind yourself of the reasons they became your ex. 

So long as you are able to genuinely reach a new understanding with an old partner, now can be a time when the spark of trust, passion, and connection is rekindled. 

Take care of yourself over the next three weeks, and don’t look too hard for the truth.

The more you relax and let go, the easier it will be for the to truth find you!

In Inner Contemplation,

Luna Dragonwell

    Luna, great name by the way, a beautiful, an extremely funniest Somalian friend/friendship from my some time now past, gave me a reason for living thru her courage, origins, and abilities to make u laugh at almost anything with her extroverted soul at a pivotal dark time in my life journey, her name was/is “Luna”! Thank you for bringing her to my thoughts once again.
    In earlier years while studying the Fine and Applied Arts at college I was became introduced via studying Art, Art History thru to coming on Psychologists Carl Jung. Astrology, and remember reading from a book of a well known Astrologist, Ezabella Hicky, one brief analysis in planets, aspect conjunction, and placement made me wonder where Mrs. Hicky said that if this conjunction were to evolve along spiritual line it would be very transformative for the good for myself and others. I’ve felt I’ve lived a large portion never beginning to fully understand Her deep perception. I know u can’t fully grasp what Hicky was writing without a whole natal chart of mine but if u could interpret in a small literal or symbolic senses Of the following: Pluto in ♌️ conduct Jupiter in ♍️, in 12th in small degrees squared Saturn in ♏️ in 3rd? What could u help me consider either in a literal way or symbolic reference that might get somewhat closer to grasp deeper where I might go for some sense of contentment. Or, had at this moment in mylife, at least obtained a glimpse of what truly is the Diamond Universe. Thankful!

    • Hi Jas, thank you for your kind comment. Because Jupiter and Pluto are in your 12th house, this conjunction manifests intangibly through the collective unconscious and your dreamworld. You may have to go through some karma and release attachment around teachers and belief systems you hold precious or strongly identify with before this conjunction can come to fruition. You receive blessings and good luck through the spiritual world. Squaring Saturn in the 3rd can crimp the hose of divine blessings manifesting in your life through overly structured, limited, or pessimistic thinking. The remedy is to ensure your mental structure is broad enough to incorporate the mysteries of the formless. That’s a brief take on this dynamic in your chart, there are of course further layers and perspectives to unravel. Enjoy!

    Luna- about 8 months ago a friend from school reconnected on a different level and when we were in school I didn’t want to persue more in school because I didn’t want to just have a one night stand and thought it would ruin our friendship and worried what others would say. Long story we always had a vibe and life moved on. We would always chat via social media and texting. Eight months ago we start talking more and he has been there for me through my divorce and feelings just intensified more like old times. Months go by and we did talk but as of August he is very distant and it’s not like him. He is in a tough place with unemployment, etc and I have helped him when he needed it and we always said we would always be there for each other. He knows how I feel about him but in the beginning knew I had to finish my divorce and respected it. He lives in a different state but that never stops us from talking, seeing each other when he comes home to see his kids. I know he is with his girlfriend and can’t just assume he would leave his current situation but it’s the what changed since August? Is he stuck and can’t do what he truly wants to because he’s in a bind? What changed from us where he truly was always appreciative to being a nothing? I hate assuming and it gets the worst of me

    • Sounds like a painful situation. It’s hard to know what’s going on it someone else’s mind. You may be better off letting go and seeking connection with someone who is available.

  • Nicola haughton says:

    Hi Luna
    I have been in a relationship for the past 6 months really new but in the beginning everything was great he would call check up on me to see if am ok but now if we spend the night together he doesn’t even call to see if am ok days would go by without hearing from him and when I try to call him he doesn’t answer until he feels like to talk to me. I have ask him time upon what’s the problem all he’s saying is that he is busy I don’t know what to do anymore.

    • There’s nothing more painful in relationship than having to chase after someone. Match his energy. Give less. If it results in separation then you have your answer. If he wants to get closer again, set boundaries with him. Don’t let this guy mistreat you Nicola <3


    Hi Luna, I have been in a relationship with my husband for 30 years and married for 27 of those years. Before I moved in with him, he was my absolute soul mate. But it changed slowly. As soon as I moved in there was small things that he would do or say that would put me in my place or belittle me. He always put everyone else needs before mine and would make promises and not fulfill. As time went on things just kept getting worse. He started treat me as if I was crazy. I know that I had a major part in it, as I had very low self esteem and as I learned last year. I had Toxic Shame all of my life. So I felt I really didn’t deserve anything better. I could never fight against any emotional abuse. I slowly became alienated from everyone. He would still say that he loved me and would do things that he thought would make me happy until after 15 years, he had an affair with his best friends wife for 3 years. Still felt it was my fault because I wasn’t a good enough wife. At that point he started to become a constant liar. A couple of years later, I lost both of my daughters from my previous marriage within 4 months time and he told me that he would help me thru if he only knew what to do. I told him that I needed him to show me that he cared whether I ate or not or whether I lived or died. He then made a sandwich for me and just set it in front of me and walked out the door. I sat there for 5 hours knowing that he was showing me that he couldn’t care less if I ever ate it or not. It was like he was feeding the dog. A little while later he started to reassure me that because he loved me so much and I was in so much pain that he would totally understand if I killed myself if I couldn’t be happy with him. From then on anything that I would tell him that I needed, he would always give me the exact opposite. I lived like that for 6 years till I learned about my toxic shame and started learning to love and respect myself. I left my husband back at the end of February. He then started doing things for me that he thought was showing me how much he truly loved me and cared for me then, but still anything that I asked for from an emotional level was always denied and given the opposite of. He only had time to do those things for me when ever no one else needed him more. I was still the least important thing on his agenda. I then asked if he was ready for a divorce and he actually pushed me over the emotional edge to try to get me to commit suicide. Oddly enough, he actually admitted that he did do this. He always just denied everything before and told me it was all in my mind. H told me that there was a large part of him that hoped I wouldn’t do it the next time we talked after I got out of the psych ward. I told him that I never wanted to have anything to do with him then. But unfortunately my granddaughter from my daughter that passed, whom we have joint guardianship of was still living with him and the only way to have contact with her was to deal with him. He would still tell me that he loved me and wanted me back. It came down to the point that I started to believe that he could be the man that he was when we first met. But can I trust that he is not just a narcissists that is just trying to keep his fix or has he really realized the error of his ways? I really do still love him, I just don’t know. All the horoscopes and tarot readings say that I will get the true love now. Can you help me?

    • Bonnie, this man is not your true love. People who love you won’t push you to kill yourself. Please seek professional support. If you can’t afford it, find resources online for CPTSD and improving your self worth. You deserve far better than this in your life and I’m sorry no one has taught you that yet. Take good care.

  • Ana says:

    Hi Luna. I am a cancer, and I’ve been dating a Cancer man for more than a year. The attraction is there but I’m always craving for a deep communication with him. I’ve tried different patterns or style of conversation with him to get his real motives but seems like he is avoidant of topics especially with much emotion and talking about future. He is single and in marrying age already,34. But there’s no moment that we talked about the future. I mean, what he wants and plan in life aside from working. Now he is in full packed because he is taking post graduate course and cannot meet my needs from a partner. Last week I blocked him already because I think the relationship is going nowhere. But he find me in telegram, said he still wants to keep communication with me but he can’t promise to make time for me. I want to move on already and don’t wanna waste time staying in the relationship that makes me feel one-sided. What should I do? Any advice? I already said to him that what he wants is different from what I want in life or in relationship. But every time I am turning my back to him, he do the chasing and saying he wants me that’s why I am giving chances. But most of the time, I am feeling lonely and craving for him. And that makes me crazy because he is not that available for me when I want to be with him.

    • You already know he isn’t right for you. Wait out the lonely period in your separation. It will pass. Take care Ana, this relationship has given you more information to choose what you want out of a partner.

  • Linda says:

    Just wondering how my Scorpio really feels about me and whether or not there is a future with him.

  • Sophia Lombard says:

    Well to be truly honest. I don’t believe or trust easily. So far most of my readings are 100% correct. My marriage is currently in the process of just letting it go. There’s nothing left to fight for, I feel like I have figthing for 19 for nothing, for someone that has and never will care, love, respect me or want me. I believe my husband of 19 years is cheating on me, well I do know he is being lying to me for months now. He is born on 16 June 1971,Randfontein,South Africa. I can feel something is wrong but I just don’t know what it is. Every time we have an argument, normally because I caught him lying to me, hr phones an attorney to find out what can I take out of the marriage and then end up not divorcing me. The whole sad circle starts again. Untill end of August, I stopped asking questions, stopping arguing with him, stop expecting him to be a good man. He can do what ever he wants, I don’t complain, cry, beg or asking anything from him. I have to take care off myself financially and currently it’s not going so good but I do have 3 beautiful kids that help and support me. Are my senses correct, is he cheating and lying to me still.

But I don’t know what to do right now but to be patient and that has been difficult for me since im a Aries but im working on it and know in the end I will know.

  • medina says:

    • Hi Medina. Any good relationship has equally good communication. Ask him what his intentions are. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to him, then you have no business opening your heart to him. Take care <3

  • JANIE says:


  • Shay says:

    Hi Luna I’m in a twin flame separation right now and it has been rough! This is message today really resonated with me cus I know there’s been so many secrets, lies, and dishonest behaviors between the both of us. I really want to know his motives and I hope things are revealed to me during this mercury retrograde. I just keep asking for divine guidance right now and the strength to keep everything together. Thank you as always for your insight! Keep it coming cus it’s needed!

  • Carrie says:

    I’m widowed and 59yrs old I’ve known this guy for years he’s 45yrs old we kinda started messing around we haven’t slept with each other yet I know he had a crush on me way back when now I really don’t know how he fills about me.
    My feelings keep getting stronger we see each other about every 2 to 3 weeks.
    My feelings are getting really strong with him I don’t know if he is being truthful with me or not but I do know that he dose not want me out of his life.
    I think I’m falling in love with him I’m trying not to but it’s not working.
    Very confused.

  • Shay says:

    I’m flying back to where my ex and I lived and own a home which he currantly lives in. I moved back to my hometown. A situation regarding covid and forbearance plan needs to be handled with my presents all of a sudden. He paid for my flight and we still communicate and argue over who’s fault it was for the break up. He is an Aries and me a Leo, so there is stubbornness. Is this a sign to bring us back together? We do still love each other but he is very hot and cold almost narcissisticly. I am very empathetic and tend to over think and get fogged by what is his true meaning and if he even cares for me or just using me for his “supply”. I believe he has side supplies and he won’t admit his feelings. How can I differentiate the truth of this madness?

  • Priti says:
