If there’s one bit of astrology beyond sun sign that everybody knows about, it’s probably Mercury Retrograde. This infamous event happens three times a year, and since Mercury rules things like communication, travel, negotiation, legal stuff, contracts and agreements, it can wreak havoc on all kinds of important areas in your life. So stay in bed, wear fuzzy slippers, don’t sign anything or buy/sell anything, don’t start any new relationships or go on any trips, and for the love of God, don’t touch a computer, or Mercury will nuke your life.
Or so the popular wisdom in some circles goes, anyway :)
Not only is that not possible or practical, it’s also not even necessary. Mercury retrograde can be a bit overblown in the “public imagination,” and as with anything astrological, how much it affects you and how will depend on your personal natal chart and what areas in it Mercury is affecting.
If you find Mercury Rx tends to wreak havoc in your life, or you have an important Mercury-ruled event coming up during the retrograde period that you cannot control the timing of, or you just want a little added peace of mind during this transit, that’s what this community ritual service is designed for.
Please note that community altar work services do not come with individual readings/reports, though I will answer questions and join conversations happening on the private client Discord server. That’s also where I’ll post photos of the work, and participants get a link to my client calendar, as well.
