November 8, 2014 Mercury will re-enter Scorpio after a grueling retrograde period that involved two intense eclipse events a lunar and solar eclipse. We will be out of the official shadow period on the 10th so we can finally get our head spaces back in forward motion. Hopefully we have all learned a lot about ourselves, especially when it comes to communication in relationships and how our styles both promote and sabotage our happiness and partnerships. This is not a moment too soon as the same day we come out of the darkness we will be confronted with important information as Mars will conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. We will need all of our Mercury mojo as Mars and Pluto are co-rulers of Scorpio where Saturn, now in the late degrees of Scorpio is transiting. Saturn is ruled by Capricorn, this phenomenon is called mutual reception and Pluto and Saturn have been this way for a while, but with Mars joining the action and Mercury, just re-entering Scorpio we will have some shocking revelations about how this retrograde played out and what the consequences will be.
Pluto in earthy Capricorn prompted by this action will literally bring “buried” secrets out of the earth. (Damn, should have used concrete instead!) If we have left ourselves open by trusting the wrong people with our hidden life there could be some serious betrayal issues, especially with all of the breakups and exes showing back up everywhere. (Make sure you erase the sex tape and cancel the joint credit cards before you break up!) Jealousy can cause problems and loose tongues so if you have something to hide, start working on your alibi or legal defense now. Anyone who feels hurt by us, real or imagined, obvious or unmentioned, could blow us out of the water if they've got juice on us. We will just have to face the truth and consequences and use more discretion with whom we trust or learn to cover our tracks better in the future.
Not only do we have to worry about personal secrets coming out, this Mars/Pluto conjunction will exacerbate the Uranus/ Pluto square that has been creating dramatic global change since June 2012. Some of the secrets coming out will be big news on a world wide scale. The square energy has been promoting revolutions and shocking changes everywhere and this next week’s transits will add to the unrest that will continue until the square breaks for good March 2015. The next exact square will occur December 17 and the aftermath/ resolution or a continuation to the upcoming events will likely occur at that time so we won’t get through all of this quick and easy. Personal natal planets and points will of course point to how and where this plays out for each of us but it will be enlightening for all.
