Mercury gets such a bad rap! This beautiful blue planet gets blamed whenever technology goes wonk-a-doodle, or folks can’t communicate all civilized ‘n shit!

What we must remember is this… Mercury doesn’t give a rat’s ass if we’re caused any angst three to four times a year “because of it”. Why? How it operates is a HUMAN creation!

We’re the one’s creating the limitations; the communication hiccups; the angst, and we need to stop blaming, and giving, Mercury the finger whenever its retrograde!

So, if you are ready to take responsibility for what is showing up for you whenever Mercury is Retrograde, try out the simple tricks listed below!

Mercury Invocation

“I invoke the sublime intelligence and true perception of Mercury. Fill me, my winged friend, with insight and clarity of mind. Shower upon me your dexterity of consciousness, so that I may analyze and synthesize the manifold aspects of my life.”

mercury retrograde Oil

Drop the following measurements into 1/8 cup of base oil

(common carrier oils are Jojoba, Almond, Grapeseed, and Avocado)

4 drops Lavender pure essential oil (to calm you)
2 drops Eucalyptus pure essential oil (to protect you)
1 drop Peppermint pure essential oil (to clear you)

Shake before each use.

When ready to use, place 3-5 drops in palm of one hand.

Gently rub hands together while visualizing all ways in that you communicate being clear and easily received.

Perform this every day (before/during/after the Retrograde) before you leave for work/begin work if you do so from home.

mercury retrograde Candle Magic

(You’ll need enough candles to burn throughout the entire phase.)

Take an orange 7-day candle (one in a glass jar) and draw the Mercury symbol on it.

Anoint the candle with the oil while focusing on experiencing clear communications and thoughts.

Place the candle in a VERY safe place and light.

Do NOT blow it out; allow it to burn completely.

Repeat daily.
