Here’s What Each Zodiac Sign Can Expect From 2020’s Mercury In Scorpio

Mercury enters Scorpio on September 27th, 2020, and it will officially end on December 1st, 2020. This transit will have us on our toes, since it will almost be a two-month transit. The dreaded Mercury retrograde will begin on October 13th, so this October will be one for the books. It will make its way back into the sign of Libra on October 27th and back into Scorpio on November 10th. In Scorpio, Mercury is the detective who wants to get to the bottom of things right away. Because this transit will impact Election Day (in the U.S), we are all going to see how it will manifest on a political level. Because Scorpio is a Water Sign, we will be more in touch with our emotions during this transit. Prepare yourselves for a good cry, a moment to revisit the past, and a time to learn to let go. It will not be a walk in the park, but it will be a journey for changes and evaluating where we are and where we are headed.


This transit will have you wanting to get to the bottom of things. It will be advantageous, since you are working hard, and this will allow you to get things done with impeccable detail. You will take on a more reserved approach when it comes to getting answers, since you will be focused on excelling at work or school. With your ruler still in retrograde, this is also the perfect time to take it easy when you are overwhelmed and use this Mercury transit to get clarity, do some research, and be practical.


Here you reflect on the importance of partnerships in your life. Mercury in Scorpio will be a mirror into your relationships. Any desires will be shown, as well as the cracks in your partnership. This is a time to discuss topics with your partner that you might have put off. You are embarking on a new journey with these transits, especially with Juno currently in this sign. The results of this can bring you both closer than before.


Prepare to feel in your element with this transit. Mercury in Scorpio has you on the move and no one will be able to keep up with you. Although these Saturn transits have been tough on you, with Mercury here, it seems like you are on your way to stability and finding a sense of direction you have been lacking. Mercury sets your eyes on the future, pushes you, and motivates and fuels those dreams.
