As October comes to a close, we blow a sweet goodbye kiss to Libra season and prepare for some intense, emotional shadow work as the sun enters Scorpio. Ruled by Pluto (yes, planet of the underworld), Scorpios have a reputation for being sulky, intimidating, mysterious, intense — very much the hot goth of the zodiac.
“You’re so powerful that people feel your presence, even before you’ve said a word! Sensitive Scorpio picks up vibes,” as the Astro Twins write about Scorpio’s energy. “You see every little detail, and you can read people like an open book. Once your friends get used to your high-intensity style, they know that you’re fiercely loyal. Anyone who betrays you had better watch out! Like a Scorpion, you’ll deliver a painful sting of revenge. Since your sign is naturally secretive, work on being more open with people. This will develop trust, and improve your relationships”.
So in the spirit of getting touch with that deep, gooey, mysterious center that we all have (Scorpios just revel in it a bit more!), we’re humbly proposing you incorporate some sex magic into your bedroom this season as your scorpio zodiac sex tip.
Is it woo-woo? Yes. Will you maybe feel goofy at-worst or like Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman in Practical Magic at best? Also, yes.
Therapist: you’re the only client I’m sort of scared of
Scorpio: yeah, I get that

So, for background, sex magic (or often “magick”) refers to the centuries old practice of using and harnessing the energy manifested during sex and orgasm— and the intentions you can set and zero in on when you honor the mind and body during sex. It can range from actual rituals — charging sex magic tools, drawing symbols on your bodies — to just juicing up your normal sex life with a bit of crystal, spiritual energy. But, really, there can be magic and ritual where there’s intention and focus and a willingness to embrace the intensity.
Not sure what sex magic might look like in your life? It can be as simple as meditation before masturbation, introducing yourself or your partners to tantric sex, journaling about your fantasies and the things you want and need, lighting candles, charging your sex toys and your crystals while you masturbate (check for a full moon too for extra power!) or even using a witchy-inspired sex toy. For me, I like to use my tarot cards (paired with some critical self-reflection and exploration) to help get my brain into the best place for using sexual energy.
So embrace the ritual — the quiet, intense moments where you can connect with your body and spirit (and/or your partner’s body and spirit) — and let yourself embrace the power that comes from pleasure. We’re sure you’ll feel a bit more magical.
