Is Mercury in Scorpio until December 9 (yes, you read that correctly) the final irony of this Saturnine-Plutonic fuqery? Or a relatively rare astrological phenomenon that we can tune into for maverick self-mastery?
It’s both. It means that whatever message Saturn and Pluto are transmitting, you’re now picking it up on all frequencies.
So even if you only dabble in denial occasionally, maybe on the weekend or when everyone else is doing it, forget it.
But because Mercury is making repeat-trines to Shamanic Neptune and other magical astro-factors, it’s inspirational.
If this astral terrain were an orchestra, Saturn and Pluto would be the kettle drum. Mercury in Scorpio and all the weird alignments is more like a soaring violin. The tempo is the same but it feels more harmonious.
In practice, it means we’re perpetually time-money slammed, on the verge of a psychological breakthrough and hatching genius concepts. Mercury trine Neptune means you need to check yourself – is this a true moment of genius? Or delusional?
Mercury In Scorpio Can Be Paranoid Brooding Or Maverick Self-Mastery
I’m Generation X so I recall pre-iPhone days when you’d have to scrawl your crazy ideas on a bar napkin or something. There was a built-in delay by default. Now, you can text/post a high concept and have laid the money down before your slower Saturn brain has even got to consider it. Mercury trine Neptune – potent till December – goes off the Vibe. There is no measuring or weighting of it with other factors. Sometimes it comes off fabulously – other times you wake up in the morning wondering why people keep texting you about buying a boat or demanding a down payment for your trip.
My Mercury Neptune innovation? I hired Zephyr so I could focus on the individuated daily horoscopes and recommitted to my dream diary. And I invented a whole new style of healing modality. Okay, that’s just Mercury in Aries hubris but it’s a new something and it works. Essentially, it’s just meditation but you do it with something like the Backpod or the Occipivot,* it adds extra oomph. I played the Neptunian Nights music to get into a receptive, trance-like state and as I felt tight fascia, asked ‘what is this from?’ And believe me, if you’re relaxed enough and do this in your bedroom or some other private place, you get the most profound answer. It’s usually something you don’t want to think about – hence it is being held in your body – and it will be the first thing that comes to mind.
New Theory: Saturn Is Fascia
New Theory: Saturn IS fascia. And of course, you don’t need props or music but I found it enhanced the clarity. And as you do it by yourself, you’re free to let the realizations and releases just happen.
It fits in with the broader Saturn conjunct Pluto themes – self-reliance and nobody is coming to ‘save’ you – as it’s self-adjusting.
Mercury in Scorpio can be paranoid brooding or maverick self-mastery. And if you’re going to be obsessing over anything aside from time, money, existential relationship questions, and power, why not make it your fascia?
It sounds too simple to work but try it and share here if it worked for you or not!
