Three to four times every year we experience the illusion of the planet Mercury traveling backwards, which we refer to as Mercury Retrograde.
Mercury rules communication, travel, technology and the legal system. When Mercury is in retrograde, these areas of life are at their absolute weakest point. It is the absence of Mercurial Energy that is the cause of these problems. In other words, there is nothing about this perfectly normal astrological event that you should be banishing. Instead, you should be INCREASING Mercurial energies.
Everyone is impacted by Mercury Retrograde to varying degrees, all based on the position of Mercury in your natal chart at the moment you were born. Having a natal chart reading with an experienced astrologer will help you understand Mercury's importance in your life and how it will impact you during its retrograde.
For the majority of people (myself included), Mercury Retrograde is a very unpleasant time. Between constant technical difficulties, miscommunication and change of travel plans, these are the most unproductive stretches of time throughout the year. Because of this, I am an avid practitioner of Mercury Retrograde Rituals to ease the impact of these astrological events.

Keep in mind...
Astrological events are similar to acts of weather. Some people choose to dance in the wind and the rain. Others stay indoors. Your reaction, your mental attitude and your choice of thoughts will create your own experience and outcome.
