As the final mercury retrograde of 2020 is coming to its end, it is time to turn a new page and look ahead to what the month of November has in store for us. When a planet retrogrades it is astrologically in a sleeping state. The Planet Mercury rules communication of all forms so, during a retrograde, miscommunications often occur. Although your patience may be running out, for the last days of the retrograde try to remain understanding and flexible. During a Mercury retrograde, you should always avoid dying your hair, getting a new tattoo, and making drastic life changes. It is the perfect time for self-reflection and an opportunity to allow your mind to go beyond conventional wisdom by moving past linear thinking.
During scorpio season it is time to:
- Deconstruct our old selves and find beauty in recreation
- Explore our shadows and inner desires
- Dive deeply into curiosity
- Merge with those we love
