Mercury is headed into Shadow once more as we welcome the onset of the next Retrograde period.
As is tradition in our Sacred Arts community, this is a time when we look at the possibilities of aligning ourselves with the Winged Messenger...not rrunning and hiding under the covers in ill-advised fear.
Join us in that alignment through the Mercury Retrograde Survival Kit!
Each Mercury Retrograde period has a unique set of challenges and gifts that those who choose to honor this time and dip their wing feathers into Quicksilver magic are able to discover.
For this RX period we begin with Mercury retrograding in the Fixed Air sign of Aquarius – a period where the weird gets even weirder and where the shadow side of our thoughts and speech can reveal treasures we were only vaguely aware of.
Then, Mercury moves into the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn, the Sea Goat, where we can expect the unseen side of work, finances, career choices, and public image to all make themselves known.
Because this retrograde occurs during the last two weeks of January and first few days of February, we have a unique opportunity to take our New Year’s planning and plotting to a deeper and more comprehensive level. More time and space to be quiet within and without, so that we are able to hear and listen to all that needs to be heard.
The specific dates to be aware of are as follows:
January 14th – February 3rd, 2022: Retrograde starts at 5:41 AM in Aquarius, Mercury retrogrades into Capricorn on January 25th at 9:05 PM and stations direct on February 3rd at 10:13 PM.
Because Aquarius deals with social justice and activism and Capricorn speaks to the ways our efforts are perceived by others, once useful question to consider during this period is:
What do I need to rethink when it comes to the causes I support and how I support them?

What is included in the Mercury Survival Kit?
✅ Your Mercury RX Workbook – retooled this year and coming in at over 50 pages with descriptions for Mercury’s retrograde through each house, over each planet, as well as essential astro points like the Ascendant and Mid-heaven.
✅ The Mercury RX Survival Kit Clear Communication devotional candle.
✅ The Mercury RX Survival Kit ritual – wherein I provide ritual work to support, sustain, and protect you every single day Mercury is in retrograde.
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:
- Comprehensive Vision
- Connection between the Worlds
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.
