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. 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. Or if you’d just like an offertory or votive light set for a shorter duration, perhaps right before an important meeting, you can do that, too.
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 if you’re not already a member.
