Mercury moves into Scorpio this week— a powerful transit for mental focus and getting to the bottom of issues that have previously left us perplexed. Mercury will quickly come into conjunction with Jupiter at the beginning degrees of Scorpio, indicating that hidden knowledge, secrets, and the true nature of those around us will be communicated and understood much more easily throughout this week. All of this occurs during the dark phase of the lunar cycle, when we’re already more inclined to dive deep.
On October 10th, Jupiter moves from the balanced and harmonious sign of Libra into the intense, passionate, and deeply psychic sign of Scorpio, where it will remain until November 8th, 2018. Throughout the course of this transit, deep secrets will be expanded on and brought out into the open and difficult Truths that have been suppressed and repressed will be revealed. On an interpersonal level, this transit brings intense and passionate connections that reach far beyond the surface of the mundane. In Scorpio, Jupiter desires to get to the core nature of everything it touches, shining the spotlight on all things dark, hidden and taboo.
The Full Moon in Pisces, which comes exact on September 6th, will be deeply compassionate and emotionally charged as it is in close conjunction with watery, mystical Neptune. The energy of this Full Moon is loving and romantic— perfect for a dreamy night in with someone you love! On the flip side, we must be careful not to unload our emotions on our partners, loved ones and friends. With all of the tense and chaotic energy over these past few weeks, this Full Moon provides the perfect catalyst for an emotional purge, and in an inconjunct aspect with Venus, the people you love most may end up bearing the burden of our emotional baggage.
