Mercury in retrograde help?

Postby Negoni-Negara » Thu Jun 27, 2019 7:48 am

With mercury retrograde coming , I was wondering what to do to reflect the negative influences that come from the astronomical phenomena.
I was thinking of maybe making a talisman of sorts or a ritual or something of the sort , but I'd like to know what other witches inputs are.

I'm not much into astrology beyond a sun sign (& my own petty chart) & don't even know what mercury in retrograde is really about. Planets simply don't go physically backwards so I get it that it's an "appearance of" association & since Mercury is associated with the mind, communication & travel I'd expect that retrograde would be a time to avoid head-ology, long distance spell castings, or making speeches. If traveling far check the spare, stash some cash in hidden spaces & be aware of alternate routes. So that's how I'd treat it if I thought about it. I'd love to know what sort of talisman or ritual you'd envision... shields up, maybe? That would interesting.

Mercury Retrograde isn't so bad (although I do now regularly track it in my planner and plan accordingly). Most of the stuff you can do to protect yourself is mundane -- double check that your email has gone through, expect hiccups when you travel and build in some extra time (no 30-minute layovers in the airport to catch your next flight!), some extra miscommunications, etc. It's a good exercise in practicing patience and forgiveness of ourselves and others! Plus, I like to view Mercury Retrograde as a blessing in disguise -- it's a time for taking a pause, doing some inner reflection, and refocusing on what matters.

Thank you both for your inputs on my question.
Firstly , I was considering perhaps doing a form of prayer and maybe some crystal work , perhaps also hanging something outside my door or on it as well as something to wear or carry through the duration of said period.
That , and most likely some prayers and more focus on aura cleansing and strengthening.
Also , thank you Xiao for bringing up your more positive perspective , I'll keep it in mind in future regards.
Again , thank you both for the advice.

Mercury retrograde is forever, NOT for abstinence. This is the biggest lie in the book.

Exactly, And I feel deep philosophical conversation can happen at this time too. I'll be doing some re-focusing soon and forest healing too, though I do have to drive to get there, so I'll put it out there... "all will go smoothly and well on this trip".

Any such problem as "we are knowing this" can be discretely solved as "I am choosing myself" - thus I refer to the bad book as gospel, the good news as anything and everything that succeeds it. :)
