Today Mercury begins its retrograde in our sign, Scorpio. This will be a three-week transit that can increase our desire to better know and understand our own selves. We may actually become better communicators during this retrograde because we’ve had all year to reflect on lessons and patterns within ourselves and our partnerships. This period is about getting clear about the energies we want to give and receive, and holding ourselves accountable for making sure the Universe and those around us are aware of our needs. We can’t receive what we don’t have the courage to ask for, Scorpio. So ask for what you want with the belief that it’s already yours. Open your eyes and see when it arrives. And when it comes, it’s up to you to receive it with open arms and a spirit of gratitude.
