Mercury in Scorpio

Mercury in Scorpio symbolizes that your mind is sharp, powerful, secretive and very perceptive. You have an intuitive feel for where people are coming from and why, and can easily ferret out others' weaknesses. Be careful of a tendency to be overcritical and to pass final judgments on others. You can also be preoccupied with sex to the exclusion of your own growth and a more whole expression of your life. You can be very noncommittal when others try to pin you down. You'd do well as a detective, or in research, security, or the police force.

Famous individuals with Mercury in Scorpio (and who also have their Scorpio Mercury in the first house for added emphasis) are Paul Anderson, Ed Asner, Chuck Berry, Johnny Carson, Stephen Crane, Linda Evans, Gustave Flaubert, Mohandes Gandhi, Princess Grace of Monaco, Werner Heisenberg, Deborah Kerr, Jawaharlal Nehru, Jonas Salk, Gracie Slick, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Ray Walston.

Mercury is the innermost planet in the solar system, never getting more than 28 degrees from the Sun. Astrologically, it is always found in the same or an adjacent sign to the Sun. Astronomically speaking, Mercury is so close to the Sun that it can only occasionally be glimpsed in the twilight or dawn sky just before or after the Sun or the horizon has swallowed it up.
