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 running 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.
This Mercury Retrograde occurs from April 21st – May 14th and occurs in the sign of Virgo.
When Mercury retrogrades into Virgo the biggest thing to be aware of is that your finances can get weird. This retrograde flavor can include unexpected bills piling up, windfalls that are delayed or don’t come through, and bank statements that don’t add up.
So, it is important during this RX period to watch your finances and of course I will do protective work around your money to make sure that everything is A-OK!
The next thing to be aware of is that Mercury RX in Virgo is often your “traditional” Mercury RX period. Remember that though it is an earth sign, Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury.
That means that all of the conventional issues…like miscommunications, travel delays, schedule conflicts, and tech issues are more likely to occur during this time. I can already tell you, just from watching the shadow period (the run up before Mercury RX) that this will be a time when tech gives many of us trouble!
But its not all challenging!
This is also an especially good time for those who have ongoing health issues to get some clarity around those issues – including follow up work and second opinions. This is also a great time to restore or start renovating anything in the house that needs to be taken care of.
The specific dates to be aware of are as follows:
An excellent question to feel into during this period is:

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.
