Mercury Retrograde is over, Scorpios! We’ll still experience a two-week post-shadow period, but you can breathe easy knowing that Mercury is now direct in the sign of Capricorn and it’s activating Scorpio’s sector of communication. We’re back in business baby! Your projects will gain momentum, especially once the Aquarius New Moon strikes on the 21st. But as for Wednesday and Thursday’s energy, you may feel a bit of a brain fog because we’re in the dark-of-the-moon period — the period of time when our shadow thoughts and emotions rise to the forefront of our consciousness, demanding to be felt. This may be a good time to reflect on what you’ve learned during Mercury Retrograde, and how you can best apply those lessons to your current reality. Instead of blaming yourself or others for mishaps or miscommunications, choose to start fresh with a wiser and more mature perspective on what’s worth your time and energy.
