Mercury Retrograde Community Ritual Service - May 29

Regular price $16.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Shipping calculated at checkout.

*If you are booking more than one service, or if you're purchasing tangible items in addition to booking services, please check out with each service separately if at all possible. It really makes things go much more efficiently if one service = one order number and vice versa.

Work begins on Saturday, May 29th. There is some wiggle room and you can book late as long as you still see available slots.

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 even possible or practical, it's also not even necessary. Frankly, I've always thought the uproar over Mercury retrograde is way 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 RX is affecting.

Having said all that, I still probably wouldn't buy a new computer while Mercury is retrograde if I had a choice :) But Mercury RX does affect some of us more than others and will sometimes affect us more than usual, and we very often do not have a choice when it comes to things like contracts, technology, court dates, travel, etc.

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.

Ritual service involves setting of dressed, fixed lights, among other things, and these generally burn for about 5 days and will be worked and tended for the duration. If you'd like to have lights set continuously during the period of Mercury retrograde, you can book the additional lights as an add-on.

Please note that community altar work services do not come with individual readings/reports, though I will post at least one photo of the work to the Discord "forum," which you'll receive an invitation to after you book.

Note: photos are of previous community ritual services for various events, not necessarily Mercury-related.

    Steps

    After you check out, fill out the intake form giving your order #, petition if you have one (you don't have to have one), and any additional information or photos you want me to use.

    Work begins on Saturday, May 29th. There is some wiggle room and you can book late as long as you still see available slots.

    Note:

    I reserve the right to cancel and refund any booking of this or any service at my sole discretion, per site Terms of Service. To see what my reasons might be for such a thing, see the Commonly Requested Altar Work page.

    Your booking of this service indicates your understanding of the Client Agreement and acceptance of the Terms of Service. The service fee covers the materials and dedicated time and altar space needed to prepare and perform the contracted services. Once preparations for the work have begun, no adjustments or refunds can be processed.

     

    HANDLING TIMES: Please note published handling times, which start at 5 business days minimum and will be longer for custom-finished items, large orders, and some specialty/extra strength formulas. You can expect a 10-day handling time for an order with one custom item, and longer than that if the order contains multiple custom items. Why? Two reasons:
    One, I make all my formulas in tiny batches, decanting and praying over every oil order as it comes in, for instance. It's not a matter of just grabbing a bottle off a shelf and popping it into an envelope. And I stock only what I know I can use within a certain shelf life. That means I can have unexpected runs on formulas that use up my stock of an ingredient and it takes a few days for more to arrive, or I need to go to back of our acreage and dig up a certain root to go in your custom spell kit. The payoff for your patience is that you get fresh blends and fresh products, made by hand the old fashioned way, by a traditional rootworker with 35 years of experience.
    Two, I live in the middle of nowhere and I have to expect time-sucking delays as par for the course, like the internet going down 'cause a cow broke the line, stuff like that.
    USAGE: Oils are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics or perfumes. While some customers do use some dressing oils as anointing oils (which is not the same thing as wearing a perfume or cologne), they are careful to do a skin test first, since they know that all-natural does not equal hypoallergenic. If you need suggestions on how to use condition and anointing oils in the conjure tradition, see the Education link up top.
    LEGALESE:  As required by law, all items are sold as curios to preserve and teach the traditions of folklore and popular religion. I don't sell anything I don't use myself, though, and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.
