Results of Mercury in Scorpio

Demanding Communication Style

The given combination influences the style of communication, both written and verbal, a lot because of numerous astrological reasons.

To begin with, Mercury itself is the main planet of communication, connections, and information transfer.

In addition to that, the same planet forms the 3rd disposition which is also all about exactly the same matters.

Mercury being in the fixed water sign Scorpio, this sign influences their intonation of communication a lot.

Namely, Scorpio is a very demanding and strict sign. It is the most mysterious zodiac sign and also the darker side of Mars.

Accordingly, the style of communication of natives with this combination is very strict and demanding.

The mysteriousness of Scorpio often makes it hard to understand the emotions of these natives. That is, they never fully express what is in their minds.

The water element of Scorpio brings emotions to this equation. To be specific, these individuals can become very emotional at times and say stingy words out of sudden impulses.

They also have characteristics of passive-aggressiveness, such as smiling while being angry at the same time. With that being said, they tend to use bitter sarcasm often.

The 6th disposition formed by this combination makes them also very critical and quarrelsome which is well expressed through their way of interacting with others.

As Mercury is neutral in this sign, deeper outcomes how they use their communication are highly dependent on Mars.

Assertive & Critical

Accordingly, if Mars is dignified, it indicates that their demanding speech benefits and supports them in their undertakings.

The fixed modality makes them stick to their words which helps them to attain their demands.

Speaking of which, a dignified Mars as the guide of Mercury in Scorpio ensures that their demands are righteous and not evil.

Hence, their good intentions attract support from surroundings naturally which helps them to achieve their goals using their demanding and strict way of communication.

That is because they are able to state their needs and wants clearly while behaving appropriately and respectfully at the same time. Whenever they attain their goal, especially in teamwork, they always appraise and show respect to them.

In fact, as this combination forms the 6th disposition, these natives often apply their communication style to manage or discipline the team. With that being said, they are very critical and demand strict discipline from others.

As the 6th signifies quarrels and disputes, the intonation of their voice becomes a bit aggressive despite the fact that Mercury is a natural benefic planet.

If Mars is undignified, the style of communication becomes aggressive instead of assertive. That is because an undignified Mars misguiding Mercury in Scorpio makes people think that they are superior to others. Thus, they also become very abusive with their words.

Scorpio being a secretive sign, negatively when its ruler Mars is weak these natives have a habit of faking their expressions. For instance, they can appear to be supportive but secretly disrupt others on purpose.

They can also become generally very contradictory and have an opposition with smart and righteous people.

Competent & Ruthless

The 6th disposition formed by Mercury in Scorpio also indicates that they are ruthless and capable of taking revenge in a very aggressive manner.

If Mars is strong, it indicates that these natives can defeat their enemies successfully with their cruel mentality combined with mental powers, and physical strength.

A well-guided Mercury also provides them with an intellect which combined with the strategic thinking of the 6th disposition makes them very competent.

Moreover, the 3rd disposition adds courage to these natives, which means they never second guess their decisions regarding their strategies. They are extremely confident about their competence.

A well-manifested 3rd and 6th dispositions give them great mental resistance and never back down attitude. With this attitude, they are willing to confront issues and tackle them effectively using the intellect of Mercury.

Alternatively, if Mars is ill-placed, it indicates that these natives are very quarrelsome with wicked mentality. They are also very envious over the success of others and capable of causing serious damage to them.
