Mercury retrograde is as time of re's: Remembering, rehashing, reviewing, revisiting, reconnecting, releasing, replacing, reinventing.
It's all about infusing the wisdom and strength of the past into the now. But while it's happening it can feel like all hell broke lose and your life is falling apart. The good news is, sometimes it takes an overwhelming break down to have an amazing breakthrough. Mercury, ruler of communications causes some upsets for people. This season in particular it highlights INNER communications. It may manifest as what appears to be behavioral patterns that you have overcome~ reappearing. Sudenly ~spiritual lessons that you thought you mastered popup again as if to ask, are you sure you figured this out? But it's not all doom and gloom, these sacred moments manifest in good ways too! Some people reconnected to their true self and also with people they haven't communicated with in a long time.
The cycles of light and dark, life a death (on all levels), construction and deconstruction can be managed with simple tools we have been provided for thru gifts from the earth and wisdom of the elders. Here are a few:
The practice of using candles in ceremonies has been used by nearly all cultures across the globe. It involves two important elements: light with its life giving properties to empower and fire to transmute unwanted energies. Let us not forget, many things are birthed from the dark.
During this mercury retrograde, if you feel like you are stuck in a groundhog day, some kind of negative feedback loop, or falling into same situations over and over~ light a reverse candle. I got mine here!
The intention set is multidimensional. If anyone is wishing you harm, it is reflected back to them. If you are imposing harm upon yourself, it is reversed back to a time when you were blessing yourself.
Consider using the following essential oils.
Melissa, the oil of light
Juniper berry, the oil of the night
Marjoram, the oil of connectivity
Lavender, the oil of communication
Melissa is rich in monoterpenes known to help promote feelings of relaxation and can assist in calming tension and nerves. It awakens the soul to truth and light.
Juniper berry is rich in monoterpenes known to uplift and renew. It assists those who fear the dark or unknown aspects of themselves.
High in sesquiterpenes known to calm and soothe, it teaches us to trust and form meaningful human relationships. But even more so, it assists in connecting us to all of our parts.
Lavender is rich in a terpene alcohol that is known to promote restful sleep, reduce anxious feelings and ease feelings of tension. Lavendar encourages emotional honesty and insists that one speak their inner most thoughts and desires.
