Natal Mercury in Scorpio

When a person has his natal Mercury in Scorpio, the sign will grant a big part of its attributes to everything that Mercury represents in his chart. As Mercury is generally governing our intellect and communication, Scorpio energy will make the native’s expression quite analytic yet also with tendencies towards secrecy. It will also grant him a strong intuition, but also make him easily hurt by words and with a tendency to retaliate. Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, and has Pluto as its ruling planet. The old ruler of the sign, before the discovery of Pluto, is considered to be Mars. Mars still remains as the sign’s co-ruler.

Intuitive mind and capable of deep knowledge. The perception of people with Mercury in Scorpio can lead to a critical examination of human motivations. They consider things accurately, but not necessarily with compassion. Sometimes they use aggressive language, as they tend to refuse to mince words and end up hurting the feelings of others unintentionally. Either they say exactly what they think or remain silent.

They secretly make plans and communicate them only when and if it serves their ultimate goal. If Mercury is under stress in Scorpio, there may be ulterior motives and too much cunning to fool others into these plans. However, because they can be influenced by strong emotional factors, they are more objective in their plans when they are not personally involved with their “victims.”

Their determination and great resourcefulness allow them to overcome obstacles that others would consider insurmountable.

People with Mercury in the sign of Scorpio make good detectives, investigators and examiners, an influence of their analytical mind and great curiosity. It seems like they always need to know everything, but rarely reveal much about themselves.

In the most evolved people, there is a scientific ability that arises from their need to know how everything works, understanding the fundamental processes of transformation. If Mercury is affected by this sign, your investigative mind may become more focused and preoccupied with sex or constant desires for fusion and control over others. This tension can also make them more distrustful of people. In relationships, this is a plate full of jealousy and possessiveness.

To reach the “truth” so desired by Scorpio, it may be necessary to know how to balance your energy, have more confidence and serenity.
