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 August 12th – September 5th beginning in the sign of  Virgo and then moving into Leo.

Generally speaking this retrograde will affect areas around communication, writing, work, technology, health, money management, and foundational structures.

I am treating this as a primarily Virgo Retrograde. Virgo is ruled by Mercury so the opportunities for snafus and for excellent insights, especially for those of you who are honing your message and/or focused on work, are very much there.

A good way to approach this particular retrograde is to work with its influence to consider your communications and the message that you have to share with others as well as your work ethic. If you are working on any big project that requires an eye for detail and revision then this retrograde has the potential to be your BFF.

Of particular interest is the intersection between Creative Expression and Diligence.

Themes that I will be emphasizing in the ceremony I perform for all participants include:

  • money blessing and protection
  • reviewing work habits, opportunities, and blind-spots
  • diminishing debt
  • increasing communication between you and your allies and holy helpers
  • revising projects, especially in terms of writing and messaging, and seeing them through to the end
  • heeding the wisdom of your physical body
  • gaining new insights/second opinions on health issues
  • creating new opportunities within your work life and money management skill set
  • crafting, honing, and refining your message as well as the ways that you deliver 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 your 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:

  • Communication
  • Relationships
  • Ideas
  • Breath
  • 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.
