if libra is oriented towards intimacy, scorpio is oriented towards what happens inside the container of intimate relationship. what happens when you feel hurt or the relationship changes? when boundaries are violated or there’s too much or not enough separateness? how do we find our way back into love?
scorpio is the function of learning how to navigate the changing dynamics of emotional/spiritual security we form in relationships. it’s essential to remember that our autonomy & emotional well-being is the foundation of our ability to function in healthy relationships.
scorpio reminds us that relating brings up painful feelings & opportunities to repair the origin of those feelings. relationships require resilience via compassion for our own pain & that of others.
Mercury rx in scorpio at the same time is going to emphasize our learning curve here by assisting us in rewiring the way we think about intimacy & autonomy. Mars, ruler of scorpio, has been in libra since October 4 & won’t enter scorpio until November 19. in one way or another, this has had us doing this work in relationships—boundaries, asserting needs, being actively receptive, choosing love as a practice.
triple check your plans, your contracts, your money especially if you share it, & honor your energetic capacity. be patient with technical mix-ups. enter all communication & initiatives with the priority of having your own back.
but most importantly, refuse to hold onto any fear about Mercury rx. instead, lean into the lessons/observations/revelations it wants to bring you for your own spiritual-emotional well-being even if it looks like fuck-ups. judgement of your self or others is only going to hold you back in this process.
this is also a great time to review the year & investigate astrological themes for closure, then gently look at what’s incoming for your chart in 2020. we can work on this together!
