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!
