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!

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.
