It’s that time of year again, when bright and brilliant planet Mercury appears to go backwards in his heavenly orbit; it’s time for the Mercury RX Survival Kit!
The next Mercury Retrograde occurs from October 13th – November 3rd, in the signs of Scorpio and Libra.
Autumn Retrograde 2020 ~ Shadows to Love
To say that 2020 has been a rough year would be a grand understatement. As we head into the Autumn season here in the Northern Hemisphere and the Spring season in the Southern, and pad ever closer to the end of the year, it is natural that feelings of anger, despair, hopelessness, frustration, and even rage make themselves known. Add in a particularly divisive presidential election in the US and a Mercury Retrograde period that starts smack dab in the middle of October in the sign of Scorpio and, as we say in Texas, its like adding gasoline to matches.
Those of you who have worked with me know that I am not a fan of running away from the hard stuff, in fact, I am the type who runs straight into it. My opinion is that if the stars and current events are aligning to bring our shadows to the surface then this is the perfect time to meet and greet those shadows, learn to dance with them, and perhaps, put a few of them to rest once and for all. Mercury retrograding in Scorpio gives us the opportunity to do just that. We can feel our anger – but direct it in a useful manner, experience despair and at the same time recognize that it is weather and will eventually pass, we can hold hope and hopelessness together at the same time, put our frustration to work, and channel our rage into magic that transforms for the better. The astrology of this time supports us in doing just that so why not make good use of the opportunity?
While this retrograde period begins in Scorpio it ends in Libra, and that gives us a clue about the conclusion of this retrograde period. Shadows are going to come up – along with the typical Mercury rx difficulties and challenges, but the period is going to end in the quality most exalted by Libra…Love. Along with refusing to run away from shadows, I am not on the side of bringing light to all of them either – shadows are supposed to be shadowy, its what they do. I think the real danger in our shadow emotions and experiences is not that they don’t have light but that all too often they are not met with love, understanding or compassion but rather fear, shame, and guilt.
Enough. Let’s not do this anymore.

This is a special retrograde, taking us through the Underworld so well known and traversed by Scorpio and then concluding in Venus’ bower with Libra where love and right relationship are key. If you have been looking for a good time to practice inner reconciliation, then this is your retrograde. May we restore the balance and bring our shadows to love.
I am also hosting a FREE Astro Analysis teaching call to go into all the nitty-gritty details of this RX period (and I’ll probably talk a little bit about the Mars RX as well which starts the day after the call. Here is the info for that:

Each Survival Kit includes:
Your Customized Mercury RX Forecast: With your astro information in hand, I will look at how this upcoming Mercury RX is going to affect you personally. You will walk away with a sense of what and where you can optimize as well as what you need to watch out for and I will include tips and ritual suggestions to further support your Retrograde experience! (Note: this part of the report requires you to send me you correct birth date, time, and location).
The clear communication devotional candle: Each candle is dressed with a special blend of herbs and roots including Angelica root, Deerstongue leaf, and home-grown organic lemongrass, and topped off with my homemade clear communication ritual oil. It is then blessed with a special Mercury prayer that has been perfected over the years, and finally set to light in my candle houses (please note that no candle reports accompany Mercury RX candles).
Mercury in Retrograde Protection and Prevention Rite: This is a rite I have done for myself and my family over the past three years with great success. It involves a unique petition with very specific incense and the recitation of a hymn held sacred by the God Mercury.
The Mercury RX Survival Kit guidebook including: Six delicious prompts that will help you delve into your relationship with 6 of the areas that Mercury is traditionally believed to influence:

New to the Mercury RX Survival Kit?
Over the years I have observed how Mercury RX affects different people. For some, retrogrades are not a big deal — they can read a helpful blog post or two in preparation and then move on with their lives.
For others…not so much. Mercury in retrograde seems to always bring more than its fair share of tech problems, communication break-downs, and heightened nerves and anxieties.
The reason for this of course has to do with our natal charts and the specific placement of Mercury in those charts, but when you are feeling the retrograde drama knowing the reason behind it doesn’t really help.
Enter the Mercury Retrograde survival kit. This is the kit for the person who wants nothing more than to hide under the covers whenever Mercury goes retrograde.
The person who is tired of dealing with yet another fried computer and yet another stressed relationship. The person who needs some deep Mercurial magic-making.
