Mercury: Communciation & Intellect 

Mercury rules communication and intellect, the sign it resides in a natal chart reveal how the chart holder communicates and think. It is the closest planet to the sun, that’s why most of us are born with mercury that shares the same sign as our sun sign, if not, it is often just one sign before or after the sun sign. For the same reason, many of us have a combusted mercury where Mercury conjuncts the sun at a distance of fewer than 14 degrees. When a planet is in too close of proximity to the sun, its “personality” becomes strongly influenced by the sun and can lose its function. 

Scorpio: Natural-born Psychic 

Scorpio’s Plutonian energy goes into the depth of things, Scorpio people are highly intuitive and comfortable with the hidden and the unseen, some are even drawn to them.
