The truth will out. Whatever's been hiding under the surface is likely to be revealed this week, ideally through a frank and fair exchange of views and a balanced opportunity to open up about deeply-felt issues. However...communications planet Mercury moves into super-suspicious Scorpio on Tuesday 25th October with the emotional moon also in the sexy, super-sleuth sign a day later, so it could feel like we've all had a dose of truth serum in an episode of true-life confessions.
Saying what you really feel could be inevitable. It might not be pretty, it might not be comfortable, but it's likely to be a weight off your mind and help you get to the bottom of a situation that's been unsettling you for a while. Getting it out in the open gives you a chance to change things, or at least to have them dealt with or listened to at last.
Even though Scorpio influences tend to get a bad rap wherever they show up, this Mercury-Moon mash-up is not necessarily a bad thing. You might for instance find that a deep-seated but secret attraction is reciprocated; you might get to the truth of a research project or creative endeavour that's eluded you until now; or a money issue could be resolved through more in-depth discussion. As passion, money and power are the key components of this week's planetary line-up, put the accent on honest, heart-felt communication to get to the truth of the matter and you shouldn't go wrong.
Intimacy or money matters you share with a Significant Other – or debts you may have – may need to be addressed now; This week influences your close love and business relationships where it's vital to get to the core issue of a home or financial scenario; A health or work matter could be improved with better communication and some in-depth research; Get to the core of a romantic situation, or think or talk your way to inspiration for a sensually-centred artistic aim; Home is where you need to go deep this week – have a crucial heart-to-heart to clear the air; The truth could hurt now but it looks like something that's been hovering below the surface needs to be said - even so, aim to soften the blow; A money matter could be under discussion and it could be linked to your home or to work where, again, clearing the air could feel like a necessary evil; You might feel obliged to 'fess up' and explain yourself, your look, your outlook or your actions this week; While other signs are feeling the urge to purge themselves of deep-seated issues you're in the unusual position of being better off keeping things under wraps – thinking things through more deeply than usual now could be your best move in a long while; Being frank with friends or putting your deep-seated, secret ambitions under close scrutiny is the way to make the best use of this week's Scorpio moon and Mercury influence; Your career could do with some intense discussion, to cut away the clutter and get to the point of what truly motivates and moves you about your work; Consider the theories and deep beliefs that shape your view of the world and be prepared to discuss them or possibly even defend them this week.
