“Was there ever any man thus beaten out of season,
When in the why and the wherefore is neither rhyme nor reason?
Well, sir, I thank you.”

Happy Scorpio birthdays. Got that out of the way? Ready to move forward? The challenge is “communicate.” A simplistic approach is to suggest, “Well, Mercury is retrograde, and therefore, communications are problematic, at best.” Yes, a super-simple way to see this, and one that I will employ, over the next few weeks, as need be. The real Scorpio challenge, though, doesn’t come from the placement of Mercury, yes, it is retrograde — usual protocols apply — but this is about bigger stuff, namely, Jupiter, Pluto. And Saturn, relative to the Scorpio placements in your own chart. Spells out problems with communication.
“What did you say?”
“I said it ‘spells out problems with communications’ this week.” We used to call this “academic writing,” but there’s a kind of more formal tone required. No contractions, no slang, no stylized lists. Nope, nothing casual, all formal n’stuff. Be formal. Be precise. Eschew excess verbiage. Direct, and straight to the Scorpio point, and might have to do that two, three times, because, you know, Mercury is Retrograde.
