OCD and Sexual Repression: Scorpio Rising, Mars, Mercury, Venus in Aries

aries ram horoscope cupDear Scorpio,

Your question doesn’t really fit the format of my blog as it’s akin to a personal reading. Further, your issues are obviously complex and probably not well suited to being addressed on advice blog.

However I am going to answer your question anyway, because I feel for you and because your chart strongly interacts with mine and leads me to think I may be able to help you which I think you strongly deserve. So I’m just going to talk straight and my editor can look the other way for a day.

On the thwarted Mars energy, my position on this is very clear. Repress your sex and anger (Mars) at your own peril and in your case this is especially the case. For one, you’re a Scorpio rising, so Mars rules the chart. Nothing is more important to you than Mars! And the rising is your physical body, so when you fail to express your Mars, your body is getting jacked beyond belief.

Now consider your Mars is in Aries which obviously want to go, Go, GO and further, it is conjunct both Venus and Mercury… opposite Pluto and I have to say this is one hell of a motherfucker you are trying to suppress. And how do you think this is going to play?

It’s going to play where it sits, in the 6th house, for good or ill.

Use your Mars = excellent health. Repress your Mars and you’ll see it turn inward and eat you alive.

What do you think Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is? It’s 6th house (daily routine / the mind / Virgo stuff) run amok! Helllllo! You need to fuck! You need to fuck and fight and be heroic and you need to do this every day just to maintain your health. So let’s talk about what happened when you were 15.

15 is puberty, you know. That means there is a flood of hormones. And have you looked at the astrology back then? I did. And Uranus (experimentation) was squaring all that Mars mess in Aries. Comprendo? So apparently when those dogs got out, they went so crazy they scared the hell out of you – so let’s address that.

First, if this is something as simple as homosexuality, well for Godsakes get over it. You have plenty of company. There are legions of homosexuals out there who will be happy to have you join them, and if it’s otherwise?

So what? At fifteen years old, you think you’re the first person who ever thought of it. Well take it from a fellow Mars Mercury, okay? You’re not! And some of this taboo stuff… try it once. Face your big fear about it and what you find out is it’s not that compelling after all. You get it out of your system!

So here’s my theory:

You’re innately very sexual but there are still periods where things will flare. Like during a Uranus transit, obviously. Uranus wants to break rules! So unfortunately you encountered one of these times in conjunction with puberty which was akin to a “perfect storm” and you became overwhelmed.

And being sensitive somewhat puritan with your 6th house, you nixed this whole deal and you are now suffering OCD due the stress of repression with more ailments on the horizon, no doubt if you do opt to own this energy.

So there you go. And PS, not all Scorpios are aggressive and vindictive.

Good luck.

OCD and Sexual Repression: Scorpio Rising, Mars, Mercury, Venus in Aries — 5 Comments

  1. I am glad you wrote back to this sensitive soul. I think your advice and reading were so right on. In my astrological work, the repression of Mars energy has caused more grief and ill health than ANYTHING ELSE I have seen. Even worse than Pluto stuff. Well, maybe not– I’ve seen someo pretty scary Plutonian explosions in people’s lives.. but the repression cycles go on FOREVER unless dealt with,Pluto just,well, explodes.. and gets on with.. Good for you for helping this troubled soul!

  2. Thank you Elsa for writing this. While my situation is vastly different from this person’s, I am a Scorpio ascendant who sometimes represses that Mars energy.

    I think you can’t help but write universal truths, even when answering a very individualized question.

  3. Beautiful! Just beautiful, Elsa. I KNOW exactly what Scorpio Rising is going through because I did just about everything a person could do (except children and animals) and worse yet….I let other people do these things to me.
    Now, I could do one of two things…..stress and obsess over it….or let it go and chalk it up to NEEDING to experience those “dark” matters.
    I’ve been called every name (in reference to my sexuality) in the book and yet what I kept hearing from ALL those people with their descriptive nouns was this……THEY had the problem with their sexuality….not me.
    For some unknown reason societal norms dictate who can do what with their penises and vaginas….and anuses. Now the way I look at is if I am with a consenting adult then it is nobody’s business what I do with my “parts”.
    I really doubt the “Almighty” is lookin’ down here saying, ” I wonder what Scorpio Rising, or jamie, or elsa, or bill, or george, or Mary is doing with his or her “parts” right now?” Who is he/she doin’?” If that is all that he is concerned about (or obssessed about as is our society) then it does not really matter what or who you did because we ALL are fucked anyway.
    Let it go, as Elsa says, and be extremely happy that you are such a wonderful person. Peace to you, Scorpio Rising.

  4. Wow! I am seriously mars influenced and have repressed what seems like every bit of it. I have Aries Sun, Taurus Moon, Aries Mercury and Venus. I have NO sex drive at all. And amazingly enough, I find myself becoming more obsessive and anxious. Maybe you’re right, sex is the answer.
