The First Mercury Retrograde of 2022

January 09, 2022

The First Mercury Retrograde of 2022

The first mercury retrograde of the year is starting on Friday the 14th. This first mercury retrograde is taking place during the current venus retrograde and right before the first full moon of the year (which will be in the sign of Cancer). 

This adds a lot of heart centered elements to this transit, so there may be some work to be done around how you communicate with others, especially those in your immediate circle. Are there overdue conversations that need to take place? Has there been a large gap of time since you’ve touched base with the ones you care about? Is it time to reconnect or to disconnect? 

When it comes to your virtual connections, it may be time to reassess and revamp how you connect to your connections on that plane. How can you connect and communicate your messages (and services and goods for those of you who use social media for business) while still maintaining or creating a healthy boundary? 

There will also be a need to work on how you communicate your needs to others. This transit with the additions of the others is a reminder that no one is a mind reader. If you have needs that are not being met, if you have been struggling, it may be time to take a different approach to how you express them. You may be surprised by the people that will step up, whether it is to offer a listening ear, offer their expertise in a specific area, and even meet you halfway and collaborate with you for a project.

This ritual glass candle was specifically made to be used during the mercury retrograde season, regardless of whether it is during the shadow phase (pre and post shadow) and regardless of what sign it is taking place in.

Use this candle during this season for communication, safe travel, technology protection or for success for business endeavors. You can use this alone or in combination with other spells or rituals throughout this time. 

For those of you who use divination tools, you can light this candle while you do specific divination sessions for what to expect, what to improve on, or how to work with the energies of mercury retrograde.
