Dig Down Deep
Scorpio is a complex and very powerful sign, and Mercury, the planet of communication and travel, loves to learn and chat. An interesting combination!
Ruled by both Mars and Pluto, Scorpio brings with it strong feelings, strong drives and a mega-strong need to find out what’s going on beneath the surface.
Putting it all together, Mercury in Scorpio is likely to mean that you have little need for idle prattle, and an almost zero tolerance for anyone who doesn’t say it like it is. They will know this as soon as they meet you. Trust me.
Natal Mercury In Scorpio And Your Health
Mercury surely does affect our overall health as the mental realm it governs is such an enormous part of who we are.
The way we communicate can either put us at ease and lower our stress levels, or, it can make us tense and trickle down to ultimately affect our health.
With your Natal Mercury in Scorpio, you need to make time for meditation, or, in other words, communication with yourself. Scorpio loves to internalize and ponder and that creates a need for quiet discussions that take place in our own minds.
There may be something that you feel a need to uncover with regard to your life in general, and since we’re talking about Scorpio, it’s not going to be anything minor. This is likely to be a quest you undertake for the whole of your life.
You could have a need to completely change something, such as the way you think and/or communicate with others at some point in your life. Or, you may find that decisions you made in the past are no longer working for you. Whatever happens, it will not be small, and you will end up with a whole new set of life-rules that could change who/what/ you care about.
One of Scorpio’s animal correspondents is The Phoenix. Rising up from the ashes, The Phoenix has experienced a kind of death, but overcomes that death and becomes whole and healthy again. And so there could be something you need to break free from when it comes to your health.
Take time to contemplate and think long and hard about what’s right for you when it comes to your diet and exercise habits and how you take care of your body. Rely on your intuition to know if you’ll get the results you desire.
Mercury is a planet that loves to move, and when it’s in Scorpio in the natal chart, it can make a person want to get into the Earth and literally dig. Logically gardening is one thing that may attract you at the moment. But anything that you begin from scratch could also be especially alluring.
Scorpio rules the 8th house of sex, death and regeneration, and following that line of logic it’s also safe to say that you easily talk to your partner about the most intimate contact, and, you have a perfect sense of what to say/do when it comes to pleasuring your mate.
