Teasing—Is It Ruled by Mercury or Mars?
©5-11-11 by Donna Cunningham, MSW
Do you like it when people tease you? Most likely not, but are there times when it’s okay? Have you ever stopped to analyze what kinds of teasing are funny and what kinds are wounding?
And what planet rules this iffy brand of humor? Do you think it’s Mercury? Mars? Jupiter? Or, brrr, Pluto? For sure, it’s not Venus!
Teasers would have you believe it’s a Mercury thang. “It’s a joke, for God’s sake! I’m just having fun with you. Can’t you be a Good Sport?”

My comment on the site:
Another fantastic article Donna, .
Teasing / Bullying these days is mostly Martian in nature than Mercurian.
My Mars and Saturn in 9th (Scorpio) with Uranus made me a bully in primary school I hate that phase of my life (of 1 year), then the next 7 years I suffered under bigger, meaner bullies, think that phase made me stronger, spent the next 4 years fighting bullies, I am ever grateful and thankful to God for giving me the courage to stand up for those who couldn’t.
However when it comes to family I have a mix of the Martian and Mercurian qualities, and spend hours teasing my sister and cousins, sometimes even my parents and relatives. Mostly it has been Mercurian, except with my sister who always feels it is more Martian than Mercurian.
However I tend to attract a lot of intelligent people who keep teasing me and I end up not understanding their teasing and take it as they are praising me or pulling my leg (Mercury is Sag doesn’t help). Aquarius Ascendant makes me sensitive, yet too egoistic (and dignified) to show that I am hurt.
