Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio

Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio

Seeing the Truth

To understand the effect that this Mercury Retrograde will have on world events, especially here in the US, we only have to look at the 2000 election, also under Mercury Retrograde. 

  • Recounts were completely bungled. It ended up in the Supreme Court. 

  • Both candidates were then pronounced the winner by different news agencies. 

Bottom line, with Mercury turning direct the day of the Presidential Election, expect a complete clusterfuck in preparation and execution.  


You could already see it forming in Mercury’s shadow, before it stationed retrograde. The preparation phase for this election will be a complete shit show. The only plus to all of this is that it will take place in the sign of Scorpio, where Mercury Retrograde almost always means scandalous revelations among the rich and powerful.


Expect events that mean we cannot go back to life the way it was before on any level. Expect our ideas and beliefs, especially our subconsciously-operating motivations, to be brought to task. You can look at a planet’s turn to retrograde as a descent into the underworld, or a death, and its station direct as a resurrection.  


We are being asked to die to the patriarchal thinking of the past, before we resurrect again on November 3rd.


During this time, emotional motivations will be laid bare in many arenas. There will be an intensity and a dogged nature to our subconscious beliefs and drives. All of us are being asked to look at beliefs and ideas surrounding individual freedoms and rights.

  • Since 2000, have our choices to surrender so many personal liberties in exchange for protections which haven’t helped us like we hoped they would, put us in a better or a worse position as it relates to our personal power and freedoms?  

Are we better off? And if we’re not, what are we willing to do about it?


Another arena in which this will bring very revealing scandals is sex.
