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!
No one knows what the summer of this year is going to bring. Already experts and statesmen are making various predictions from the most optimistic to the most pessimistic. Astrologers who pay attention though are looking at a couple of various events that are going to occur in the summer and one is the Mercury Retrograde through the sign of Cancer from June 17th – July 12th. I see this particular Retrograde as a Referendum on Care and it might be one of the more important retrogrades of the year to work with consciously.
Cancer, the sign of the Crab, is the cardinal water sign. That alone means that we are going to be submerged in the realm of feeling, healing, and intuition during this RX period. However, Cancer is one half of the Cancer-Capricorn axis that has been so active over the last several years astrologically speaking. At the time that Mercury goes retrograde in June, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto will all be present in Capricorn and opposite Cancer. So there will be great pressure during this RX period but I feel it is the kind of pressure that can make diamonds if we let it.
For Cancer is not only the cardinal water sign. This Moon-ruled sign is attuned to the themes of home, family, tribe, nourishment, beauty, Mothering, and care. In fact, I feel CARE is what this Mercury RX period is all about. We are going to see who really cares and who doesn’t on a global level but more than that we have the opportunity to look at our personal relationship to care. How do we care for ourselves? For others? Given the ongoing public health crisis what does healthy, functioning care look like right now today? This is the retrograde we work with in order to answer those questions so you can see why I feel it is a vital astrological moment.
Themes that I will be emphasizing in the ceremony I perform for all participants include:
- Re-committing to care – for yourself, for others, for our world.
- Realizing what medicines and healing actions are most supportive for you now.
- Reconnecting familial relationships whether they be with your family of blood or choice.
- Revisiting intuitive gits and abilities.
- Returning to a deep sense of home and sanctuary
- Reviewing what truly nourishes you and those around you.
- Rekindling to Ancestor work and guidance from your Beloved Dead.
- Revealing what new remedies can calm and ground you during this time.
- Reconciling with Mother at any and all levels – from your actual mom, to the ways that you mother, have been (or not been) mothered, to right relationship with the cosmic Mother.
- Remembering to honor the Moon.
- Re-structuring the way that you work with money to support your ideas and creative visions, protecting all prosperity.
This will be a unique Mercury RX Survival Kit Offering as I will be able to look at your chart and give you some ideas about what the best soul medicines and remedies are for you right now at this moment. Valuable information indeed and I am excited to share it!
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!

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.

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: December 21st at midnight – 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!
