Mercury retrograde & the tarot . . .
With Mercury retrograde in Scorpio , associated with the Death card , it’s focused on shedding skin 🐍 releasing what no longer serves you. This will be a time of transformation ~ if you let it. The old ways must decay & die so the new can grow through them , like the regeneration of earth. Scorpio represents the first ego death in the wheel of astrology , the 8th house. The death of our ego , of our bodies , terrifies us as humans. We fear the unknown & inevitable change is scary because we can’t see the outcome. What do you need to get rid of so your inner Magician can cast its spells? What is stopping you from letting go?
And lastly, one of the ruling planets of Scorpio is Mars. Who is associated with The Tower card 💥 which has a lot of the same energy as Death. You must burn down the structures in your life that no longer serve you in order to build new ones. And if you don’t start the fire , you’ll be thrust from the burning building 🔥
