Mercury in Sexy Scorpio Retrograde alert!

Mercury in Scorpio September 27-December 1st 2020

Mercury Retrograde October 13-November 3.

Mercury turns Retrograde at 11 degrees 40 minutes of Scorpio and ends the Retrograde at 25 degrees 57 minutes of LIBRA.

Mercury the Messenger tweaks our deepest instincts and X-ray vision, Our psyches and souls just want to scry on obsidian mirrors and black waters. This energy puts our minds into sexual, obsessive, dirty and dark thoughts. 

Do you have Mercury in Scorpio? This period is an investigation into the dark side of the psyche where our emotions and our mind-meld into intense laser-like focus. the power to control the mind is strengthened. It’s an optimum time for research, investigations and to deeply focus and obsess about ex’s, and revenge because of Mars Retrograde in Aries and anything that brings power control and wealth. 

Mercury in Scorpio governs finances, and deeply entrenched bank wealth. When Mercury turns Retrogrades markets will likely fall. The stock market has a long history of major collapses in the original depression October in 1929, Black Monday in 1987, and the cheap mortgage fiasco of 2008.

Mars, the ruling planet of Scorpio and Aries is RETROGRADE in Aries. The intensity of this powerful aspect has a reverb or delayed reaction while Mars is Retrograde in September 9th/10th to November 13th. There is almost a month when Mars begins to go Direct again while Mercury is still in Scorpio when its full impact will be felt. 


MERCURY is travelling through the VIA COMBUSTA from September 15/16 to November 22nd.  What is that? The VC is a 30-degree swath of the Zodiac which the ancients called the “burning way” or “fiery way” in Latin, which spans from 15 Libra to 15 Scorpio. Way back then if you had planets in this 30-degree segment it meant that you were cursed, evil, a witch or sorcerer, it was considered a very bad thing. You could be burned at the stake from your astrology chart! But of course, this designation was coming from the jealous, insecure, controlling- talk about Scorpio, dark, obsessive torturing, secretive Catholic Church which meant that you actually had fearsome and awesome powers. Do you have planets, Rising, Nodes, Asteroids, Lolith or Chiron in those degrees? My Rising sign is there, Venus and Neptune too.

MARS SQUARES SATURN as SATURN turns direct September 29/30.


PLUS MERCURY ALSO Turns RETROGRADE October 13 at 11 degrees 40 minutes Scorpio and back into LIBRA on OCTOBER 28/29 turning Stationary Direct November 3rd at 25 degrees 57 minutes of LIBRA in a tense square to Pluto Saturn and Jupiter.


Those dates October 13-November 3rd are particularly powerful. As BOTH MARS AND MERCURY will be Retrograde at the same time. 

 Sex, power and control issues are hotter than hot topics as the dark wicked torturous child sex trafficking and money laundering secrets come out.

MARS in the Tarot is #16 THE TOWER 

More #MeToo women speaking out about being raped sexually abused and assaulted and also the Roe versus Wade freedom of abortion law will be debated hotly now that Ruth Bader Ginsberg has passed and a new Republic anti-abortion pro-fundamentalist Supreme Court Justice is likely to be installed.  Women’s life under a shadowy, power-hungry Patriarchal world where men have dominated women sexually for thousands of years is not a secret anymore.

 Sun enters Scorpio on the 22rd to amp up the Scorpio vibes.

OCTOBER 27-28 as MERCURY is at the very last 29th degree of LIBRA is the most intensified energy and can trigger some major world shake-ups. Venus also enters LIBRA at 0 degrees which is a major Cardinal degree. 


Tantric sexuality is a very Mercury in Scorpio issue. Mercury is the mind control wedding with sexuality to create spiritual death and rebirth. This is not a current fad. Its an ancient spiritual tradition requiring much yogic and meditation practice. Tantric sex is healing and unites lovers as one physically sexually emotionally and spiritually. Practitioners traditionally did this alone as an inner alchemical sacred marriage practice using breathwork alone.

We can more easily connect with our own soul’s desires,and psyches and get laser-like insights into our own and other people’s natures.  

 Mercury is the MAGICIAN in the Tarot – thoughts are magic. Mercury is also known as the TRICKSTER which is how our minds can play tricks on us. Mercury is also the ruler of thieves and merchants. 

This energy can be used to transform many old emotional blocks be they sexual, poverty, abundance mentality and abundance, power or lack of it and control issues.

 Mercury in Scorpio governs depth psychology, detective work and deep analysis. Good time to do deep excavation in your shadows. Surgeons and anyone who need very exacting skills need Mercury in Scorpio. This would be an excellent time to get surgery done. Scorpio governs the reproductive organs, any issues you may have in these areas require your attention and old STD’s issues can flare up during the Retrograde.

 Under Mercury’s tour of Scorpio, it is a more inward, secretive time compounded by Mars’s internal desire and actions, During Covid-19 second wave we will be forced to be in quarantine and alone again and it’s in complete alignment with these times so don’t fight it. Spending down and alone time is a gift. Use this time for deep inner transformation in yourself and any relationships with power imbalances then. Rise like the Phoenix. 

This is an underlying soul mate energy as the 8th sign also symbolizes  “the other.”  Yes, old soul mates may return or more likely the inability to stop obsessing about the one who got away or whos choice it was to leave the relationship will trigger old anger. Channel that anger in positive directions. Mars Retrograde tends to keep anger held back, That is not healthy.

 People born with Mercury in Scorpio have very insightful, deep analysis of the world. They can be mesmerizing speakers. Mercury in Scorpio is like a film noir characteristic.

 Scorpio is a fixed sign of phenomenal willpower. If you know that you are walking your souls’ path you should be able to create what you want. “Do what thou wilt and harm none.” Is the whole of the Law. Scorpio energy at its darkest uses, abuses, rapes, torture, puts fear into others, manipulates, and plays with S & M. 

Be careful not to fall under the spell of any ruthless manipulators marketers and charming thieves. Be careful not to unconsciously sting others or yourself. 

BDSM is a Scorpio thing. I do not believe it is a healthy choice. Pain is not love. Look at your own shame and pain and deeply held belief systems and programming of feeling powerless, victimized or deserving of punishment and get indepth spiritual psychological and transpersonal healing of your pain. 


Scorpio magnifies all your feelings and thoughts so be careful of getting gobbled up by demons, your own and the very real demonic forces that exist everywhere around us.  Suicidal thoughts and rates may get higher. Especially because COVID_19 and the state of 2020 erratic energy, if you feel suicidal please call a suicide hotline and get help ASAP. Do not call a Psychic go get real medical help. Do not keep your pain and shame a secret any longer. Work with and resolve your pain and transmute it to become stronger.
