Mercury Stations Retrograde in Scorpio

“The highest magic is that which lies within ourselves.” Anodea Judith

Mercury stationed retrograde today at 18 degrees of Scorpio. This is an intriguing retrograde period (through November 1) as during this time Mercury will conjunct Saturn and then play a significant part in the upcoming eclipse on November 3. It is a good time to deepen awareness as information that has been hidden over time may be revealed – information that can enable you to unravel limited perceptions and understandings. One of the Sabian symbols associated with the retrograde is,
“A Woman Drawing Aside Two Dark Curtains That Closed the Entrance to a Sacred Pathway.”

Anodea Judith quote from Wheels of Life, Sabian symbol quote from Lynda Hill’s 360 Degrees of Wisdom

Scorpio and Empwerment

“Power consists to a large extent in deciding what stories will be told.” Carolyn G. Heilbrun

Mercury is retrograde now in Scorpio joining the Sun, Saturn and the North Node. This notable configuration in the sign of Scorpio – with its laser like ability to penetrate and expose dark places and its legendary transformative powers – makes it a good time to revisit the roots of lost power .It bodes well to look at the stories we tell ourselves about our personal power and its lack in order to reconfigure a more authentic and empowered version.
