When to Perform:
Below you will see three different Mercury Retrograde protocols. Depending on the severity of how Mercury Retrograde impacts you, you may choose one of three ritual protocols. Alternatively, you may try all three protocols within the course of the year (remember, there are 3-4 Mercury Retrogrades every year!). Doing so will give you measurable and comparative results, so that you may plan accordingly for the following year. You may find that you only need to perform this ritual once to keep Mercury Retrograde maladies at bay. Alternatively, you may find your communication and technical or legal skills improve to such an extent that you choose to perform this ritual on a regular basis.
- Perform the Mercury Retrograde Ritual once during the pre-shadow phase of Mercury Retrograde.
- Perform the Mercury Retrograde Ritual once during the pre-shadow phase of Mercury Retrograde, preferably 3 days before the planet fully retrogrades.
- Repeat the Mercury Retrograde Ritual 7-10 days after the retrograde has begun.
- If Mercury Retrograde issues persist, continue repeating the ritual every 7 days until the planet is no longer in retrograde.
