Private Investigations- Mercury in Scorpio

dreamstime_6592040Maybe I am addicted (already) to the new series of Sherlock on TV, or maybe it is that I just finished re-reading the amazingly good Enigma by Robert Harris, but when I was thinking about Mercury in Scorpio, I kept seeing cyphers and codes and invisible ink- not that you can actually see invisible ink, but you get the idea.

Mercury moves into Scorpio early tomorrow morning. Just so that you can get an idea of what it all means…check out the lyrics from this great song by Dire Straits & the link to a really old live video on YouTube.

It’s a mystery to me, the game commences.

For the usual fee, plus expenses.

Confidential information it’s in a diary

This is my investigation, not a public enquiry


I go checking out the reports
Digging up the dirt
You get to meet all sorts
In this line of work

Treachery and treason
There’s always an excuse for it
And when I find the reason
I still can’t get used to it

And what have you got at the end of the day?
What have you got to take away?
A bottle of whiskey and a new set of lies
Blinds on the window and a pain behind the eyes

Scarred for life
No compensation
Private investigations


Lyrics from Private Investigations by Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits)
