Mercury retrograde happens a few times a year every year, and it can be an incredibly potent time for your growth and transformation in your life. Mercury retrograde is a time when the planet appears to be moving backward in its orbit. Mercury is known as the planet of day-to-day expression, communication, coding, shipping, and travel, and disruptions in these can seem to throw everything off, but if you use this time to set positive intentions your retrograde will go much smoother.
A ritual I recommend this retrograde is blocking off a time in your day to relax and take a radical rest:
Spiritual bathing: Use some candles, essential oils, herbs, crystals, or whatever else you may want to use to relax and set your space. I like using our Retrograde Meditation Oil. The Retrograde Essential Oil Blend helps create a peaceful, grounded environment.
Turn off your electronics for a while and focus on the present moment. Spend some time outside meditating or read your favorite book in a sacred space.
Spend time at your altar meditating with your crystals, candles, incense, and whatever else make you feel at peace in your sacred space.
