Mercury enters Scorpio on November 5, 2021, after its lengthy stay in Libra, where it went retrograde. What did you learn about yourself during the Mercury retrograde? Did you get an opportunity to refine how you relate and connect with others? It is only when we truly consider the perspectives and needs of others that we can fully relate and connect with others. And that takes us into Scorpio, where we connect even more deeply and intimately with ourselves and others. Underlying all perspectives, beliefs, and thoughts are emotions, and when we engage with our emotions in a responsible and mature way, we can understand our motivations better, understanding ourselves in a deeper way and empowering ourselves to change should we choose to do so. We can in every moment choose how we feel, and when you can harness that power, you are not subject to the manipulations and machinations of other people or institutions. Knowing yourself intimately and understanding the power of emotions is the path to true sovereignty.
When I know why I can untie the knots That are keeping me bound up In old stories and ways of perceiving That are disempowering And keeping me From being All I am capable of becoming
