Acid, ironic, sarcastic, even at times cynical. This is Mercury in Scorpio, an intense, deep, and transformative mindset. Due to the rule of Mars and Pluto in this sign, it is of great importance to corroborate the cosmic state of these planets in the natal chart. If they are in dignity (Mars domiciled in Aries or Scorpio, or exalted in Capricorn, Pluto in Scorpio), the Scorpio qualities will intensify.
Mercury in Scorpio is endowed with a great intuition that dissects you without having asked you anything due to the water element. Its X-rays investigate the occult and access the B-side of people. His nature is mysterious, reserved but intelligent, and sometimes cruel, allowing him to be carried away by the emotional underworld’s most intense and dark feelings.
The issues that concern this Mercury are closely connected with the 8th house: sexual desire, the unconscious, inheritances, the money of others (especially the spouse), power, crises, revolutions, purges of everything type, death, resurrection, crimes, mysteries, and taboos. The repressed that must be revealed.
Under the influence of difficult aspects, people with Mercury in Scorpio live suspiciously of everything, imagining endless conspiracies lurking. They must learn to let go, enjoy more, or maintain a more friendly relationship with the surface of things. The Scorpio mind can reach a higher development if it does not always focus on the painful and critical aspects of existence.
Some personalities with Mercury in Scorpio are Oscar Wilde, John Lennon, and Gandhi: all three had to face the established and unmask the society of their time. We should not forget that many consider Uranus, a planet associated with revolutions and drastic changes, exalted (that is, empowered) in the scorpion sign.
