The last Mercury retrograde for 2019 starting on Halloween, in Scorpio. Scorpio is an intense, emotional sign. Scorpio is ruler of transformations, and that can be a positive effect of Mercury retrograde in Scorpio. Focus on something you’ve been avoiding for a long time, and work to transform it for good. Dig deep. Scorpio rules power & control, so we can take the opportunity to have more power and control in our lives. But we have to be careful we don’t become controlling and fight others.
The Start of the Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio
The retrograde begins with Mercury conjunct (aligned with) Venus in Scorpio and this actually goes exact the day before, on October 30th at 6:05PM ET. This can help us come together and try to find some common ground, BUT it may also make us more frustrated with one another, more maddened by the way others behave.
The Trouble Spot- Full Moon in Taurus
A big trouble spot during this retrograde is going to be the full moon on November 12th, which occurs in Taurus and opposes Mercury retrograde. Whenever a full moon opposes Mercury retrograde, this is usually bad news! A time for something big to pop. Could be financial troubles, but it could also be something related to values, morality, ethics, legacy. Definitely avoid big purchases of technology, electronics, gadgets, if at all possible! With erratic Uranus now in opposing sign Taurus, ruler of our own money, this retrograde period is one for potential financial trouble, so watch out for it!
Happy Mercury Retrograde!!
