Today the planet Mercury will transit across the Sun for the first time since 2016. Mercury will appear as a black spot and will be visible here on the east coast, but because Mercury is so small you will need a telescope.
The New Moon on October 27 and Mercury Retrograde on October 31 both in the sign of Scorpio, continues to affect us in November setting the tone for the contemplative winter season ahead. We’re encouraged to move away from our comfort zone and to welcome new ways to live, heal, and transform. It’s a time for taking a good look at what we may have chosen to sweep under the carpet. Mercury Retrograde is an excellent period for getting in touch with our instincts, motivations, and “dark” side. Retrograde Mercury periods tend to send us to the past for more or previously hidden information, and while in Scorpio, this is especially the case.
