Mercury RX Survival Kit
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 March 22nd – April 15th, I’m calling it the TAX Refund Retrograde! This Mercury RX occurs fully within the sign of Aries.
Generally speaking this retrograde will affect areas around: first impressions, confrontations, risk and risk assessment, personal appearance, sense of core identity, our daring, social justice activism, health, fitness, and your drive for perfection. If you are Aries sensitive (Sun, Moon, or Ascendant in Aries, and/or conjunct Mars, and/or have a loaded 1st house) then you will definitely want to pay attention to this particular retrograde season.
Because this retrograde occurs in Aries where the rock and roll planet Uranus is also still present (he’s about to move it on over into Taurus but not quite yet), aside from the above, there is a real opportunity during this retrograde to access deep inner wisdom around your most radical ideas, to go down to the root of whatever interests you (remember that the word “radical” actually means “root”) and to get very clear on the ways that you use technology to connect and disconnect. This is also prime time to do some serious legacy work.
A good way to approach this particular retrograde is to work with its influence to consider where you need to get more radical, take bigger risks, be more daring – the Aries/Uranus action supports these questions beautifully. The RX period is not the best to implement but it is a brilliant time to plan and because it occurs in perfection-loving and super disciplined Aries, it is also a time to trouble shoot any tech issues. If you are thinking of a re-brand, re-style, or re-org of your online/virtual presence you could not ask for a better RX period than this!
Of particular interest is the intersection between who you are in and of yourself – your core sense of identity, and who you are within community and in relation to others.
And, for those of us in the US it is true that the RX period occurs right in the middle of tax-prep season (I know). So, I’ll be adding some tax prep protection and refund mojo to the whole adventure!
Themes that I will be emphasizing in the ceremony I perform for all participants include:
- money blessing and protection (apropos for tax season and always)
- reviewing your sense of identity and who you are – do you express yourself authentically?
- clarity around risk, courage, daring, and adventures – where do you need to adjust your attitudes around taking a risk, taking a chance, and getting out of your comfort zone?
- protection for travel plans and journeys
- heeding the potency of first impressions
- reconsidering your role in your wider communities, especially virtual communities, as well as how you use technology to connect or disconnect
- refusing to get drawn into needless conflicts that are not going to go anywhere, practicing kindness and seeking out justice
- burnishing, brightening, and (re)lighting your inner fire of true self and deep Sovereignty! Olé!!!
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:
- 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.
Delivery via: email and pdf
Registration deadline: February 23rd at midnight cdt – NOTE: this is a firm deadline because it takes me time to analyze each person’s chart and I want you to have your Mercury RX info well in advance of the RX period itself!
