Mix Uncrossing products with Love Me (or similar ones) and do the work as a cleansing procedure. Psalm 51 is good.
Good luck!

I read online about mercury on retrograde going on these days for 2013 so I thought I would check on this forum and went to this link but could not find the answer to my question. What if you start a work before the MR and then it happens? Does the work slow down and gain momentum once the MR is over?

prvteye123: Some workers will work through Mercury Retrograde and some will halt all work, it is a matter of personal preference. Some get hit hard by it and some don't give it any credence at all. If it is a already on-going work you may need to just work right through the retrograde...I'd rather take that option then stop the work cold.

If Gemini and/or Virgo (these signs are ruled by Mercury) are prominent in one's chart, then the effect of Mercury Retrograde may be felt more strongly.

Hi All --

I'm thinking of making a spell bottle or maybe a mojo bag that both draws love and breaks love crossing simultaneously. I've been doing lots of love work for myself, and I've also had LMCC make me a lovely 3x Attraction Mojo (seeing that work on the professional level) and MISC burns candles... but man oh man, just when I think things are changing for me on the love and dating front, it all hits a wall. (Ex: last week I had three dates lined up! Met two. Great guys... and now, none are responding at all to any inquiry about a second date -- one even texted to say he had a new girlfriend now.)...this seems like the las t hurdle in my life I need to clear, and I just keep getting thwarted... *sigh*...

So... I have done a Cut and Clear (which was wonderful, what a great spell, thanks ms. cat), have been doing the lodestone love draw spell, and have the beginnings of a love container (haven't decided if it's a bottle of a bag yet) with appropriate love drawing herbs and oils... would any of you recommend putting uncrossing herbs, like agrimony and devil's shoestring in it as well, with the love draw materials, basically to kick this bad love luck? It just feels like these things need to work together for anything to change for me, but I really wanted to check in with the experts here about proceeding with this mixing. I'd be much obliged for a yea or nay, and recommendations for better ingredients if you all have any.

Thanks so much!

Good Evening, MagicMurphy,
If this were me, I would do uncrossing work on myself separately. Entirely different spell work.
I would do that first. Then, go back to your love magic.
I really wouldn't mix the 2 spells together (although I do understand your intention).

Hope this helps.
Good luck to you and hope that you get many steady dates!

A lot of my magickal community moans and groans when mercury retrograde comes around. All astrology is really about going with the flow, instead of against it. We constantly talk and talk and talk, and mercury retrograde is an invitation to be quiet and just listen. It's a great time for introspection and retrospection. Because I know that communication is often difficult during this time, I slow down, I chose my words very carefully and I am conscious about what I say. I did do some work to increase communication with myself and a guy I just met. I would like him to take me out, so I made the work very personal, very heart to heart and an open invitation. I think the key is not to fight it, learn to appreciate its gift by exploring the opportunities less verbal/mental communication gives us.

The need to do work comes up regardless of the stars, my advice is to be aware of what the heavens are doing, and formulate you spell in a manner that best utilizes the flow of the energy at hand. Above all, listen to your intuition. Your gut feeling will never steer you wrong.

Unless the work relates to Mercury specifically (literature, short trips, communication and communications technology) then you might want to hold off.

As you are doing love work, you should be find. As another poster indicated, you might want to take time to choose your words with your target a little more careful. Slow down, think about what you are saying, and don't take it personal if someone asks for clarification, or needs something repeated or confirmed.

I know of some people who take a red candle and dress it with mercury oil and burn it during a retrograde. Their theory is that the candle is to give energy to mercury power in their lives, so that the retrograde is stopped and turned around.

My own practice for dealing with mercury retrogrades is known as propitiation. Thinking of Mercury as a spirit, you make an offering to mercury to appease him so his harmful aspects are lessened or decreased. I came across this idea in Vedic astrology. You can apply it to other planets as well, as all planets (but not luminaries like the Sun and Moon) go retrograde. Although, personally, I do no think retrogrades are as risky an astrological time as other periods, like when a planet is in detriment or fall in a particular sign.

Hi I have been a lucky mojo fan and customer for sometime now and I love the products.I am about to make an order again and I was curious if you could offer me some suggestions of the best items to order to really uncross my love path.Its as if it's completely closed.I'm having a hard time attracting anyone let alone have a relationship.I have been told numerous times that someone has crossed my love path up.i have had several readings and was told they were attempting to uncross it .But here re I am still no luck.So I was wondering if you had any suggestions or the best items to use at this situation. I would greatly appreciate your help.

Hello Oldschoolgirl,

I am not Miss Cat but thought I might be able to make a suggestion. Besides doing some general uncrossing work on your self if this thing is really stubborn you may look into some blockbuster work. I would definitely want to check in with a reputable reader on the situation to get a good overview of exactly what is going on in order to know how best to proceed. I hope this is helpful and I am sure other people will also have suggestions for you. Peace~

Oldschoolgirl,

One thing I've noticed over the years is that bad luck teaches bad habits. A long string of failures in love can teach you to close yourself off from the world and desensitize you to opportunities to friendship and love.

Along with the Uncrossing and Blockbusting work and a good reading, work with Psychic Vision (for understanding the minds of others) and King Solomon Wisdom or Clarity (to understand yourself).

You can find all your supplies here:
Also google "Doctor Nerdlove" -- a great advisor for socially awkward folks in search of love.

Best of luck,

Miss Michaele

Hi Oldschoolgirl

I can definitely recommend lm healing products, they are great for healing yourself from past hurt and pain and maybe some attraction products to attract good things to you, chupporosa is good for bringing about genuine loving relationships too.

Hi Oldschoolgirl,

In addition to the excellent advice you've been given by both moderators and forum users, I've merged your post into the existing thread on love uncrossing which can give you some more ideas to work with.

Hello again oldschoolgirl,

I also just wanted to point out that you got a lot of responses to your question here and that just strikes me as a sign that you will end up successful. You are already getting lots of "love" from this forum for your work. One other thing is you can also post a prayer request to the crystal silence league (http://crystalsilenceleague.org/prayerrequests.html). Get all those prayers behind your work!

Peace~

Hi everyone,
Just want to share a candle recipe that Ive created for Mercury Retrograde because im a Virgo, my daughter is a Virgo, and my other daughter is a Gemini (pray for me :D )

Orange candle
Herbs added: Lavender, Hyssop, Rosemary (Mercury herbs)
Oils: Lemongrass and protection oil (Lemongrass is a Mercury herb, I used protection oil because it was on hand)
Incense: Lavender, Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus is also a Mercury herb and used for psychic cleaning)

Please feel free to correct me or add on because I feel that I am still new to this.

Peace and Blessings.

Hi all, I need a little advice on my situation and Mercury retrograde. long story short, my ex and I have been broken up two years now, we now are speaking and have gotten back close. He mentions he misses me and still cares ect, and I've had all this confirmed by two airr readers. I had a come to me candle done last month and it was successful and I've been advised to do a healing vigil candle for him to help get over his hurt so we can move past our past, that is also being done by an airr worker. However in my two readings, the first reader advises me I should follow my heart when it comes to him and listen to the little voice within there and not my head as that just makes me be mean to him and pushes him away, I took that advice and it has worked amazing, but after following that advice I spent a weekend with him (out first in a year and it was amazing!) and I got Mack to my city and he became somewhat distant, so I had another reading to see if it was because he had someone and I was told that heis scared of being hurt again and that he feels like he let me back in so that's the reason for his distance, I was also told also because Mercury would be in retrograde in a few days I shouldn't expect communication from him..... Then something happened last night made me angry at him and I deleted him off all my social networks, so my question is, because of the Mercury retrograde should I just not contact my ex Til it's over? And can someone tell me a bit about why Mercury retrograde would affect our communication?

Hello affie,

Mercury retrograde is a period of time when the planet Mercury appears to be going backwards in the sky. The planet mercury rules communication, travel etc. so this is a time when things are misheard, communication breaks down and things are just generally chaotic. If I were in your shoes i would tread very lightly with him until mercury goes direct. Have you thought about doing a honey jar on him once Mercury goes direct http://www.luckymojo.com/honeyjar.html also, i have known people who use Mercury oil to help ease the symptoms of a retrograde http://www.luckymojo.com/mojocatoils.html

best of luck!

Hello All!
Does anyone have any idea whether the blood moons were good or bad times to do conjure? The Bible says that the moon will turn to blood before the great day of the Lord!! They were on Jewish holy days this year (Passover & Tabernacles) and also will be happening on the SAME holy days next year (Passover & Tabernacles) - good or bad in your opinions?? I did some love work (YES, using LM products) and was wondering..thanks!

In all honesty, I have never pad attention to that.

Some practitioners do. So, maybe a rootworke who works with the exact moons can answer your query.

We will have to wait and see if anyone else answers

Hi! First time poster. Had a question about candle magick and how candle spells work during retrogrades? Are there any book recommendations anyone can make?

I'm interested in doing some skull candle magick to help with my mental state, as well as a few other spells (love spell, success in career, etc) and from I know, retrogrades slow things down. How will this effect my spellwork?

Hello, BCAC,

Retrogrades are a mixed batch --

WHICH PLANET?

Slow planet retrogrades are not too devastating, because they go on for long periods, we are used to them, and the planets themselves are more generalized in their effects than the fast planets. Fast planet retrogrades, especially Venus and Mercury, are more problematic. Mars is sometimes included with those, in part because of its ability to predict wars.

So, speaking very broadly, the retrogrades most astrologers fret about are Mercury (communications), Venus (love), and Mars (activity).

WHAT TYPE OF SPELL WORK?

Since a skull candle deals with the mind, working it during a Mercury retrograde would generally not be advantageous.

If it was being worked for love, attempting the spell during Venus retrograde would also be disadvantageous.

If it was being worked to drive someone into an angry fury, Mars retrograde would delay or slow the procedure.

So, you see, there is no one answer for that question.

TRANSITING ASPECTS OF THE RETROGRADE PLANET TO OTHER PLANETS

But it gets much deeper:

The retrograde planet may be making a "good" (positive, supportive) aspect to any planet in the sky during the retrograde, and that would make the retrograde milder.

Conversely, the retrograde planet may be making a "bad" (conflicting, opposing) aspect to any planet in the sky during the retrograde, and that would make the retrograde more difficult or more negative.

TRANSITING ASPECTS OF THE RETROGRADE PLANET TO THE NATIVE'S NATAL PLANETS AND HOUSES

In natal astrology (birth chart astrology) the person whose chart we are looking at is called the "native" (from nativity, the birth). Each time a retrograde occurs, it will or will not make "good" or "bad" aspects to the natal planet of everyone on earth, and in the case of a skull candle, the natal chart of the target should be looked at: how does the retrograde aspect the native's natal-position planets and in what houses (sectors of the sky) are the retrograde planet and the natal planets located?

For example: if the native's natal Saturn is in the 6th house (health) and it is opposed to natal Pluto in the 12th house (secrets), the person will be prone to having health issues and secret enemies and undiagnosed illnesses. Then if, in addition, Mercury retrograde stands square to the both of these planets from the 3rd house (communication), there will be delays in getting medical help and a health collapse may ensue. If your hope was to use the skull candle for a love spell at this time, it would be inadvisable. If your intention was to cause someone to suffer a relapse of a long-hidden mental illness and a delay in diagnosis and treatment due to lack of communication between medical personnel, this would be a fairly advantageous time to do your worst.

IN CONCLUSION

The subject of astrology is too complex for me to answer your general question with a simple "how it will be" conjecture.

However, you can make some determinations for yourself by seeking out an astrologer who does elections (finds the best times to work a spell) or by applying the principles i have outlined here for yourself.

Good luck!

There is an upcoming retrograde coming up on the 21st. I need to lay a trick and I won't be able to do it till possibly during the retrograde. Nonetheless I have to drive upon hours to do so. Is there anything I can do to avoid getting screwed up. I was going to do a candle for safe travel. Is there any good aspects I could focus on for this upcoming retrograde.

Hello, Godislove ,

Can't you do your safe travel spell now??

I'm not an Astrologer. So, unless one sees this question, I don't know what to tell you about this particular retrograde. You might want to consult with an AIRR member who does know Astrology.

Hi everyone,

My FWP supplies were on back order for a while and were shipped yesterday (Jan 15 - as per last call to shop). I'm still doing my uncrossing run so this didn't worry me much, except it's now likely they'll arrive after the MR has begun (Jan 21-Feb 11).

My question is, am I good to proceed with the FWP after the uncrossing work is done regardless of the retrograde, or am I better off waiting till Feb 11?

Also, while on the subject of timing, is FWP considered a waning or waxing type of ritual?

Many thanks,
malamo

Hello, malamo,

I like Fiery wall during the waxing moon. But, always remember that if it's an emergency, moon phases ought not matter.

Use the FWP regardless of the retrograde. Just start again when it goes direct.

So, you're doing it twice.

I hope this helps

take care

I know it's a bumpy time but I woke up this morning thinking I shouldn't hold off on doing a Jinx Killer--on the bumpiest day of all!
I was dreaming of the Northern Lights and the colors were the jinx my ex-husband called out to me as we separated, cursing my money, my relationships, and my success. And just before I woke I saw it start swirling around like a flock of birds but moving like turbulence in a plane too. And then, just as with a flock, turn quickly and go in the opposite direction and the colors changed in the sky and settled. I know hoodoo is flexible and that's why I'm curious. I had been trying to wait until after the retrograde to do the work. If I use Jinx Killer right now with the focus on the shift from Jinxed to Free, would that work make sense? It sure seemed to be the message. Thanks! Q2B

I've wondered about sending a sneaky dusted & dressed greeting card via snail mail. I thought of including $$$ to ensure the person makes contact with it and dressing the corners (or a five spot) of each of the $$$ bills with a blend of Crossing Oil, Double Cross Oil, Inflammatory Confusion Oil, and Jinx Oil. I'm going to dress the greeting card and $$$ with Destruction, Damnation, Devil's & Black Arts

I had wondered if mailing this in either this year's Venus retrograde or one of the Mercury retrogrades would be more advantageous compared to the waning moon. I had thought that with idea of breaking communication apart with the oilblends coincides with the similar breakdown of Mercury retrograde.

However, An ideal time for them to receive a greeting card without arising any suspicion is during this year's Venus retrograde, (it's their bday during VR) but I dont' know if that's viable timing either. From what I've read here, and I can very well have misread and misinterpreted, but it doesn't seem like Venus Retrograde is that significant of a time, at least to alter my work around it. The other benefit of the this time is the bday is during the waning moon, which might be all i need.

I want to thank you all for taking the time to read and, if you reply, your comments are appreciated! Thank you!! :)

Hello Santiago,

My approach to planetary timing is to use it when it is convenient but I do not move my work around a whole lot based on what the planets are doing. Other people will vary of course as this is different with different workers. My advice would be to send dung the birthday, particularly with the moon being on your side. Also doing work during Mercury retrograde could possibly effect your own work as well so you avoid that by doing the work outside of that time! Hope this is helpful!

Peace~

In regards to the Mercury Retrograde, I have read here on the forum that some suggest it's best not to start any new spells during this time. However, I have also seen it stated that Mercury Retrograde is a good time for breakup spells, causing fights/confusion etc.

My question is, would it be okay to START a breakup spell during the Mercury Retrograde? Or should I wait until Mercury goes direct before starting any spell at all?

Also, would it be pointless to perform, say a skull spell for love during the retrograde and then perform the EXACT same spell with another skull candle once Mercury goes direct just to reinforce the 1st spell in case the retrograde mucked the first one up?

Thanks in advance!

sorry for the grammar my key board is broken so I'm typing with whatever i have left lol also with keyboard that is used on the actual screen.
for anyone who is reading this hi,ill try to keep this brief so basically if you go to crown of success thread you'll see i a little bit of my history and where i am now i posted like 2 months ago. ever since I've come out of the darkness that has been my life. and reclaimed my own life, i have been working on every level and aspect of my self people i am talking,emotional in the aspects of feeling confident standing in my power stable, loving myself. spirituality has never been an issue, mentally I'm lucky because considering certain things I've been through-- geeze I'm still sane and sound of mind. I'm healthy go to the gym a lot and make sure hair clothes face everything is as best as can be I'm studying registered massage therapy soon as well.

i still get a lot of haters though, people really wanted e to be..dead basically or at least like crazy on the streets like destroyed basically. but god simply could not and would not allow it any who my point to all this is my love life is so empty and dry its sad people, i do my uncrossing herb bath and protection ritual wich does me good for a while stops all that bad hate from coming back but then months later. its like the spell wares off and I'm visible again. why is it i can't afford an air member I'm 19 living in toronto single with way to much expenses. personally i think i pick up so much evil eye my protection spells can only last so long against that, but also it just angers me I've come so far and worked so hard to be where i am now.i have a lucky red clover x3 coming look me over vigil glass and fmb and bewitching crystals and sachet. but I'm concerned that they won't work because I'm so harassed by wicked people....seriously i am harassed. people in my portuguese neighbourhood are so evil. and i get a lot of envious people.

every time i meet a man or a potential they never last or all of a sudden they are uninterested out of no where just out of the blue or they say i make them angry and they can't explain why they just turn sour sometimes if I'm alone with someone they'll say i pick up a lot of bad energy ? don't have this proble with females only men who are gay not even straight men.i honestly need help

i have hoodoo honey and sugar spells and there are formulas to attract positive energy and and attract love and good things all around I'm thinking another protection spell and uncrossing spiritual bath. then doing the sweet positivity drawn sugar baths to attract and keep good things near me with road opener tweaked for love and things of positivity, what do you guys think :?: :?: and then after all that i will finish off the lcky red clover. anything and everything you guys suggest is appreciated.

Hello, morningstar_67,

So happy to read that you're working on yourself and taking care of yourself.

May I make a suggestion to your plans? I think that they are all good But this is what I would add:

Do the uncrossing first. Then the protection. Then a Blockbuster ( www.luckymojo.com/blockbuster.html) then your road opener and then your positive/sweet work.

I think you're missing that blockbuster. Your clean but the doors keep shutting.

I hope this helps and congratulations on your good work for yourself! You're a role mode to many of us.

Take care

Miss Aida

seriously thank you so much the words on here can't express how much your advice means to me and your kind and supportive words as well.i have 2 wealthy way bath crystals 1 lmo bath crystals 1 fob bath crystals 1 lmo vigil and bewitching sachet and 1 blessing oil and 1 crown of success oil and 1 attraction oil if i call the shop and ask them to replace the look me over vigil with block buster they will ?if so i think Doing the uncrossing first. Then the protection. Then a Blockbuster ( http://www.luckymojo.com/blockbuster.html) then the road opener and then your positive/sweet work.
with the mojo by my side will relieve me finally. but one question i did a road opener already also and isn't that also like blockbuster just more direct and harsh and forceful for lack of a better word.

Hello, morningstar_67,

The blockbuster busts down all the doors.

While the road opener guides you to the right paths/roads

I hope this helps

Hello Nethaera,

There really is not one right answer to your questions. It really can vary form worker to worker. I know of folks who do not do any work during retrogrades and some folks who could care less about where Mercury is or what it is doing. Other folks work during Mercury retrogrades but do things to mitigate the effects of the retrograde such as keeping a Mercury vigil candle lit during this time. Ultimately you will just have to see what works best for you. I honestly do not know how a Mercury retrograde would effect a Break Up work. I suppose it could be helpful in terms of messing up their communication.

I do think it is fine to start your Break Up work during the retrograde and see what happens! You can always repeat the work later as you suggested if you feel it mucked up your work in any way.

Peace~

Question about Mercury being in retrograde...

I am doing both break up work on my ex and his current, and also return to me on my ex and me. I initially thought about holding off on all spell work until Mercury goes direct (after June 11th); however, that's a LONG time (like 3 weeks) and I like what Natstein said in an earlier post about doing break up work DURING the retrograde because it could mess up communication between the two of them.

Should I also continue my love work to counter any miscommunications that might happen between the two of us, or what would anyone suggest? I know it's probably entirely up to each individual person and how they feel about the planets and their work, and each rootworker will probably differ on their opinion...but I don't want to repeat work nor do I want it to have an adverse effect if I'm doing something when I should have taken a break.

Can I start a freezer spell during this time? Lay tricks? Continue candles on my honey jar? I'm so confused and I hate holding off wasting precious time...I'm NOT one to sit and wait!

Thanks for your input!!!

Hello, karma_13,

You can perform any of these spells.

But I wouldn't mess with the communication spell at all until Mercury goes back to Direct. I do know what you're implying but I still wouldn't do it

Hi Everyone,
i have read through the forum about mercury retrograde and I still could use a bit of clarification. I understand it is ok to begin confusion work and even a freezer spell during this time. I wanted to start a chupprosa candle or a stay with me honey jar. So is this ok or do I need to wait? I really like to utilize this time.

Hello All,

I am a Gemini so Mercury is my ruling planet. I am scheduled for plastic surgery on Jan. 16th. This is not a cosmetic procedure but rather a reconstruction one. I have been waiting for this surgery for almost a year, during which I visited the surgeon every two months for assessment of my tissues' readiness for surgery. Last December, he told me the great news that I was finally ready and decided on the date of surgery. This was awesome news for me as my eyes have been really deteriorating because of my lids inability to close all the way during sleep. This causes extreme dryness and resulted in other complications because I do have issues with my eyes in general.

Now, Mercury is and will still be going retrograde during and after surgery. Is there anything at all that I can do to make sure all goes well during and after surgery? I mean, these are my eyes! And my face! But, I really need to get this procedure done.

Kindly let me know your thoughts and advice ASAP as I am only 3 days away from it.

Blessings!

Hello, EmpoweredbyLove

This is what Miss cat says:

catherineyronwode » Mon May 04, 2009 2:17 am

"I am a practitioner of hoodoo and an astrologer.. I do not undertake trips or begin new spells that are about Mercurial situations (literature, communication, short trips, etc.) when Mercury is retrograde, For other situations, i am not as particular"

Since you only have 3 days, there's not enough time to buy any products.

So, if you're uncomfortable, please try a protection spell: www.luckymojo.com/protection.html

If you have any Blessing products, they would also be perfect too

Good Luck

I didn't get into retrogrades until this week. I just started working with the moon phases correctly. Does mars retrograde have a bad effect on love work? I wanted to make a doll baby and do other love spells and don't know if I should wait until the end of this month to do it because the situation is dire
