Are you ready to take a deep dive? Mercury heads into the shadowy realms of Scorpio on 27 September, 2020. Moving from an airy, sometimes-shallow sign of Libra, Mercury in this water sign is intuitive, intense and transformative!
This Mercury in Scorpio Season is also Mercury Retrograde Season – a double whammy of diving deep! Mercury will be here for quite some time, crossing briefly back into Libra, and then into Scorpio again.
What’s Scorpio All About?
Let’s face it – Scorpio has a bit of a reputation, right? Most people shudder when they hear a Scorpio’s in the house, mostly because we don’t quite understand this powerful sign. Scorpio has been associated with change, death/rebirth, destruction, transformation, sexuality and control.
Yes, Scorpio is all of these intense things, and like any sign, has a dark side. But Scorpio also has a lighter side. Or at least, a positive side.
Positive Scorpio things include depth, loyalty, understanding, perception, intuition and truth. Thesis the sign of psychology, of the occult and of the mysteries of life. Scorpio has seen it all – and isn’t scared of anything! Scorpio has the power to draw poison out and transform everything that they touch.
Of course, you don’t want to get on the bad side of Scorpio – vengeful, stubborn and controlling, this sign can get jealous and obsessive! These are a few of the qualities we may see creeping out of the shadows of Mercury in Scorpio season!
But there’s also a chance of digging really deep to get to the nuggets of wisdom that lies beneath the drama.

Harness the magic of the planets moving through the signs by having a handy to do list! Here’s some do’s and don’ts whilst Mercury travels through deep Scorpio:
- Have that deep ‘n meaningful conversation. Don’t be scared to show your cards, and open up Pandora’s Box. There’s a saying “Someone I once loved gave me a box of darkness. I realized that this, too, was a gift”.
- Study something occult and witchy – Scorpio loves, loves, loves a good mystery, so get stuck in and dive into your hidden side!

Refuse to give your secrets way whilst demanding someone else divulge theirs. It’s just not fair.
Spend too long in the shadows. Know when it’s time to pick your thoughts up and move on. Focus on the bright side, too.
