First Time Mating During Mercury Retrograde

Dear Mystic,

Is it a good idea to have sex with someone for the first time during Mercury Retrograde? If it is any help, we are both Geminis.

Dear Long-Time Subscriber Fan Girl,

Firstly, thank you! You guys are a massive BEAM of light for me right now with my house and then tech travails.

Secondly, pheromones are a force of Awesome that WAY trump Mercury Retrograde. I mean, maybe you’d want to be sure that he’s got your address right or that someone’s phone does not conk out thus screwing with logistics but really?

As you are both Geminis, i am amazed this has not already occurred in a more mutable fashion – like on a bus or something. But okay, as we have discussed previously, it is Sagittarius who rules the Al Fresco Sex category. 

Geminis, whilst excelling at power-flirting and cryptic communiques, can be surprisingly shy when it comes down to actually, you know, closing a deal. It’s Scorpio, Aries and Capricorn who are more inclined to go there. The officially obsessive, sex-driven Plutonic sign of the Zodiac + the two most intense cardinal signs.

Having said that, i think HEAPS of people are way more discriminating with their sex energies since Saturn in Scorpio – not from a moralistic or puritan vibe but purely because that not-yet-over intensity has made us SO much more aware of that particular Qi.  Who wants to scramble or drain it via an ill considered coupling?

But as for two Geminis getting it on during Mercury retro, why not? For an excellent time, consider May 25 to 30 – Venus in sextile to Lilith (a Madonna-Whore complex CURED) and in square to Uranus.  My god, MARS is in Gemini. You may as well have some recreation in between bouts of combat.

What does everyone else think?

I’ve been wondering if Merc Retro puts the brakes on the sexual component of a relationship, kinda like the honeymoon faze being over.

Unless you’re real sure you’re BOTH seeing things clearly, I say nay. I’ve mentioned elsewhere that Mars will be squaring Neptune shortly and this energy can denote an action that unintentionally backfires and causes one to fuq themselves. It’s not so much Mercury I’m concerned about – it’s more Mars because this is the planet of “Let’s get it ON!”. Mars = sex drive & fuqing, square illusionary Neptune PLUS having a backtracking Mercury adding to this, and what seemed like a good idea at the time might wind up being a “What was I THINKING?!” moment. Impatience can be… Read more »

So, since so many gems are posting atm, any suggestions for why I haven’t been on a date in over a decade?! 30ish Gem sun, Aqua moon, Scorp asc. Any thoughts?

I can’t even begin to comprehend why this is a question.

Gem on Gem is sexually incestuous-weird, in my experience. It’s usually subtle, but it brings the whole thing down, every time. Shame, really, because it’s an otherwise perfect coupling. Don’t get your hopes too high. Have fun, though, and get on it already! xxx

Saturn in Scorpio you say.. the timing of the discussions around this research fits. The theme fits.. the chimera.. well is it code for Leo born year of the snake with Cap rising must be avoided at all costs? Ha, probably not 🙂 And we don’t all need to be freaked out but it is rather fascinating and particularly from an energetic and spiritual perspective. It makes one wonder why one person can be harder to move on from the other. The brain is a common storage place… still on my mind anyone, he’ll always have a place in my… Read more »

This is oddly in synch w/ my current…issue at hand. I mean concern about getting with a new interest for the first time, but just the usual concerns, not Merc-retro related. We’re both Capricorns, at any rate. However, like a lot of the people who come into my life as friends and mentors, though, this guy is strong in Sag energy – moon conjunct venus there, plus mars. Meanwhile I have…Venus on Neptune (in Cap, the closest conjunct in my chart), and the moon in Pisces. Lol. Having had a four year relationship with someone whose placements were SUPER compatible… Read more »

Not that anybody’s keeping count, but I was so far off base w/ this expectation it’s unreal.
This turned out to be very, very intense and involved. Nice.
I’m still a bit stunned, honestly.

I’m a Gemini ASC, he’s a Gemini Moon. We had sex yesterday. After weeks of driving each other crazy. Only time will tell if I did the right thing. Either now that he finally got it, he will loose interest. Or we will continue dating. Either way I’d rather see it as a lesson to learn from than a regret. I actually was hooking up with someone else. So I told Gemini Moon guy one day, that I am not looking for anything casual, cause I already have someone for that. He was bummed but understood. We agreed that we… Read more »

How brave are you! At least you know you could take the risk…The person who was directly flirting and charming me scared me to death…I was blown away by his intensity and intelligence. There was not a part of me I could cover, it was as though he could access all of me before I could hide, and so I as I felt too exposed I resisted, then escaped. Now I regret it, as he is the only man I have ever met that has the depth of wisdom, compassion and responsibility I seek. He is a good decade older,… Read more »

I’d be way more interested in the saturn retro in gemini opposite house love and new moon in your soul sector meets mars in gemini.

Ms.

all due respect, when did mercury retrograde begin to attribute to all other kinds of things that are not mercurial. Yes, you have to talk to each other but that’s not what mercury is about. Unless the gemini you intend to bed is a contract, a car or an electrical implement I’d say it has no effect on this what so ever.

I think mercury retro and ‘supermoons’ have become the acceptable face of modern astro, I see so many blog posts and articles about how to survive both things that aren’t really that well informed.

That sounds like serious astro snobbery but it’s true!

Ms.
Ms.

“articles” hehe. yes..

seriously though the whole point of astrology is to learn the symbols and their meaning, to read them. If you are afraid of a transit over normal circumstances not able to affect then this says way more about your state of mind and your ability to trust your decision making process than an act of god working against you.

Forget Mercury retrograde, take advantage of this taurean moon. This energy is so raw and primal, I am enjoying it to the hilt.

I got howled down for saying Scorpio was sex obsessed about 12-15 mths ago. MM says it and no issue?

Now l know some aren’t, sex obsessed, as l read somewhere that they represent the most likely sign to be celibate or refrain as well. But if they’re on, they’re on; like no others. Tho not a Scorp, l understand this, having Mars/Pluto cjunct 2°.

Ich macht scheissen, lol

I know: double standards are trying. As a female I’ve been stoicly living among them my whole life 😉 . Just have to keep your big girl pants on, & remember it’s a marathon not a sprint. Scorpio excels when it comes to stamina, in or out of bed.

On another topic. I got this, er, friend who is KatSun&Asc who likes this Taurus femme. Question: Is Moon (Kat ruler) in Taurus & Venus (Bull ruler) in Kat good, er, them? Mutual reception. Esp as New moon starts 2° before his Sun.

I would say Mars retrograde is the period to watch for starting and consummating sex stuff, I wouldn’t have thought Mercury would have much impact, not unless you have some major miscom before getting to that point.

100% agree with the post Saturn in Scorp restraints, this Scorp/Aries has become much more discriminating about handing over that particular brand of qi and feeling better for it too. I have Mars in Sag so a tendency to be a little gung ho about such matters and not take it very seriously but I have learnt.
