Mercury in Scorpio October 2018 ~ Intellectual Depth
October 09 2018 until Oct 31 2018
When Mercury is in Scorpio, our thoughts and communications are more probing and intense. Your mind is more active, witty, perceptive, resourceful, determined, positive and inventive, more capable of great mental concentration. While Mercury in Libra urged us to find balance and to arrive at fair solutions, Mercury in Scorpio instinctively knows that life simply isn’t fair.
Intuitive ability is strong and you are capable, at times, of profound insights into the real nature of people and events. We tend to probe, observe, and focus our thoughts under this influence. Looking for motivations–the more deeply buried the better–satisfies an intellectual need now. Occasionally, the mind can be dominated by strong emotional desires that can overrule your thinking - sex is a case in point. Scorpio is extremely sharp, profound, and analytical. Thinking is inclined to be one-track minded, focused, and even obsessive.
