Digging Up the Dirt- Mercury in Scorpio

dreamstime_9133025

It’s Date Night. Five Foot Nothing (FFN) has been deposited at Camp Grandma and Scorpio Hubby (SH) and I are walking up and down the line of restaurants trying to come to an agreement on somewhere to eat.

Me: This place looks nice. Lots of things I’d choose.
SH: hmmmm, pretty expensive plate of pasta, don’t you think.

We move across to the next one
Me: What about this place? You can get a steak here if you want.
SH: Yes, but is there anything on the menu you want to eat?

By now, I am getting a little exasperated, but in the interests of date night…


Me: What do you feel like eating?
SH: I’m pretty easy. Your choice, love.
Me: OK, I feel likeVietnamese, so lets just stay here.
SH: Sounds good.

Later… sipping our first glass of vino, while sharing some salt & pepper calamari…

SH: This is nice. But I really felt like a steak at the place next door…
Me: You should have said.
SH: I did.

He hadn’t told me verbally, but in review, I should have recognised the signs.

When a Scorpio finally gives their heart and their trust (usually the 2 are interconnected), they expect that you will do the same. Scorpio doesn’t just love, they demand complete merging. With that is an assumption that you feel everything as intensely as they do. Like all water Mercuries, there is an expectation that the channels of non verbal communication are wide open. This translates to, they don’t only assume that you can read their minds, it simply doesn’t occur to them that you can’t.

When he was a toddler, no grown up was brave enough to tell Mercury in Scorpio to use his words. So he doesn’t… That isn’t to say he doesn’t know how to. Everything he does say means something- and he assumes the same of you. Don’t say it unless you intend to stand by it.

This is one of the most razor sharp minds in the zodiac. He knows how to dig deep to get at the information that needs to be got at. He will mine for data to support a point of view or to use in order to make a decision. Because of this he is very rarely wrong. On the rare occasions that he is proven to be incorrect, he will simply find more data to back up his original viewpoint. Having said that, he fights the fights he will win and will only push a point when it can be proven.

Scorpio has a mind that is full of little expandable and labelled compartments within which said data is stored until it is needed.  This comes in brilliantly handy when it comes to taking revenge on someone who did something at some point in the past or to store in case someone does something at some point in the future. He can, however, keep a secret. If he is told something in confidence by you, it will disappear into the vault and come out only if you prove yourself to be disloyal to him.

Scorpio doesn’t offer anything up. You have to earn it. Nor does he do anything or say anything without intention. You just have to work out what that intention is. When a Scorpio calls you out of the blue to talk about nothing, what they are really calling for is so that you can ask the questions that need to be asked so they can tell you without telling you what they need to tell you. If you can speak Scorpio, the exact words don’t need to be said- they are felt.

Do you think we need to talk about this?
I don’t know, do you think we need to talk about this?
If you don’t think we need to, I guess we don’t need to.

It has all been said and understood.
