When Mercury is in Scorpio
Your Intellectual Self
In the Sign of Permanent Change and Transformation

by Rebecca Brents

The power of a mind made up

Mercury represents your conscious, rational mind; your intellectual self; your capacity to use mental energy. It describes your ability to study, learn, analyze and communicate information. It shows your capacity to form ideas and opinions; the way you deal with facts; and the way you process data.

When Mercury is in Scorpio, ideas are intense and resourceful, but there is a secretiveness about them, because this sign does not like to talk a lot or reveal everything it knows. Thinking shows resolve, passion, determined beliefs, and a willingness to make improvements and major changes by doing "whatever it takes." That attitude, believe me, can cover a lot of frightening ground!

Determined to have its own way

This blend of energy is determined, even ruthless, in its insistence on creating its own vision of "how things should be" out in physical reality. There may be obvious emphasis on dealing with emergencies or managing crises -- even though the one doing the coping may be the very one who instigated the problems in the first place ... again for the sake of "creating something better."

Ideas are endowed with an unmatched strength and boldness -- and the underlying "aim" of this energy is to combine assets from different sources in order to build something finer and more valuable than either partner could have accomplished on his own.

When Mercury in Scorpio is under stress, opinions and the presentation of ideas become overbearing, willful, and extreme. People dig in behind unreasonable, calculating positions. Rhetoric becomes fanatical, abusive, unscrupulous and even immoral in the drive to dominate and succeed in the goals that have been set.

What Does Mercury Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> In mythology, Mercury was the winged messenger of the Gods. -- Your mind -- at work and play -- In Astrology, Mercury represents your conscious, rational mind. It tells a lot about your intellectual self; your ability to study, learn, analyze, communicate and work with information.

Mercury in General -- Your Inner Selves of Learning and Work ---> Learning stuff, using your mind and putting it to work -- Like Venus, your Mercury energy describes two inner selves. One manages your mind and all its talents; the other is in charge of the work you do ... the ways you use your skills and abilities to help others and build the kind of life your want for yourself. Again, as with Venus, these are usually reduced to the basic categories of "mind" and "work," but they also include whole subdivisions of behavior and talents.

Mercury and the Miracle of the Mind -- Astrology's Search for Intelligent Life ---> As an Astrologer I see both the mundaneness of common knowledge -- handling the basic facts of awareness and everyday rituals -- and a touch of miracles in Mercury.

Mercury Retrograde -- Rethinking Your Present Direction ---> In the territory of the mind -- When Mercury is retrograde (Mercury Rx -- in shorthand), it is a time of rethinking, refocusing and re-communicating. In Astrology, Mercury represents your intellect; your mental focus; your mind and how you use its assets.
