Magnified tension doubles down as Mercury Retrogrades in Scorpio 2020. Get your self care and mindfulness practices fully online to support your well being during some of the most intense weeks of this year of relentless and unavoidable changes.


You’ll have to take that up with the Management! And while you are waiting on their reply, here is a major theme for this retrograde:

This Mercury Retrograde Magnifies Tension in Relationships

As we enter the actual three weeks of Mercury Retrograde, Let’s MOVE Warrior God Mars opposes I’m Shining Right Here Sun along the It’s About Me Aries and It’s About Us Libra axis. 

Get compassionately clear about who YOU are first and you’ll have the right gear on when you inevitably step into those stinky piles of unfinished interpersonal business. 

Otherwise a dark Scorpio whirlpool of overwhelm can threaten to suck you into those stupid, circular arguments.


Use today’s Grand Trine in Earth Signs to help you remember and write down what helps you get grounded, such as:

  • Microcosmic Orbit of Breath Adaptation #1
  • Bare feet on the Earth
  • Sound therapy (yes, that can include primal screaming! See Shamanic Weather for Mars Squares Pluto)
  • Root vegetables
  • Chakra balancing
  • Yoga

Make your get-back-into-your-body list now and keep it handy. Top hint: switch to conscious breathing in those magnified tension situations to interrupt the fight or flight response.

There are so many aspects to this Mercury retrograde – typical Scorpio! I’ll do my best to post more. Share your ideas, too! Taking care of ourselves helps us be there for others.

Make this a retrograde to ROAR about!

Namaste ~ Mara
