Cancer 22 Jun - 22 Jul
Mercury, the communication planet,
will be retrograde in Scorpio from 31
October - 20 November. When Mercury
is retrograde it’s usually prudent to hold-
your-horses and, wherever possible, take a
less-is-more, wait-and-see approach to what is
going on. So, avoid the tendency to cut corners,
speak with a forked tongue or skip the small print. This is a
good time to review, revise, reassess and if necessary, move the goalposts. When Mercury is retrograde, take a step back so as to
take two steps forward later. Misunderstandings are more likely in your dealings with others so resist the temptation to read between the lines and insist others do likewise, also, don’t be too trusting and don’t be too creative with the truth.
Since Scorpio is in the zone of your solar chart associated with romance, creative self-expression and those things, activities and people that give you pleasure, this is the area of your life where there may be some confusion, misunderstandings or some other shenanigans. Therefore, while you may be in the mood for some of your favourite three better word, fun, try to behave yourself and not to get too intoxicated, flirt too much or make promises you can’t or wont keep, at least until after Mars enters Scorpio on 19 November just as Mercury starts to move forward again, otherwise you could get yourself in hot water.
