Hi MoonGoddessKat,

You could certainly do the spell in January and see what kind of signs you get. Then, if needed, you can perform it again in time for the next full moon.

Not all practitioners work by the cycles or the signs of the moon or worry about lunar eclipses, so you should be OK, if you strongly feel it is better for you to begin the work as needed and then repeat as necessary.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

MoonGoddessKat --

The tradition about eclipses is not to START anything on the eclipse. Ending a hot foot spell (which is what this seems to be, for the other person) on an eclipse is dandy!

Also, go back to your AIRR worker and ask that person why they gave you that particular instruction because whoever it was knows his or her business and had some reason to tell you to work this way. I choose not to second-guess my colleagues.

Good luck.

I see on page 3 of this thread that Miss Cat has said that skullwork isn't advantageous during mercury retrograde.
I'm in the middle of a skull working at the moment and mercury goes retrograde next week, Would it be advised to put it away for the whole 3 weeks? It seems like a long time to halt the working, but of course I don't want to be doing sub-par work, or working to no effect.

I'm also curious if stop gossip spells would be a good idea during the retrograde? I'm thinking yes as it messes with communication?

And then further, do you also consider the shadow phases, or only the 3 weeks mercury is actually direct?
Thank you

Graveyardhag ,

You can continue the work because you started it prior to the retrograde period started. This was discussed somewhere in the forum about using the moon phase and other spells. Yes stop gossip or silencing people, messing up communication even court cases would be good during a retrograde. Break up is also good because its likely for people to have miscommunications.

Thanks JayDee, I don't have any court case work to be done lol but stop gossip, silencing someone and breaking up a friendship is all on the cards, just waiting on a big order that includes all my stop gossip stuff for that one. Hopefully it arrives before the retrograde ends I'd like to take advantage of those energies.

Hi Graveyardhag,

It is generally advisable that you not begin any new spell while Mercury is in retrograde, as communication of any kind - including your petition - may be affected. You could do it if you have a pressing matter, but do make sure your communication is very clear.

You can continue work that was already started before the retrograde, as your petition has already been sent and received by Spirit.

I have used this as a general principle and it's never steered me wrong. Good luck.

Graveyardhag,

On page 3 of this thread Miss Aida discusses how she uses retrogrades and what work to avoid and why during each stage, as Does Miss Cat. Another poster commented on how burning a mercury candle along with the work while doing it in a retrograde minimizes the effects. Miss Cat also gave some great tips on consulting an astrologer to determine if the planets current condition make any adverse connections in your chart that would make the retrograde effect things. Great discussion. I also believe a few of the AIRR workers do astrology charts.

I was curious about what other practitioners do in regard to spell work during a Mercury Rx. I assume they carry on with spell work regardless, but I wondered if any do any work during that time at all.

I'm about to experiment with using Mercury oil to anoint an offering to Mercury to ease the Retrograde effects; thinking an orange candle might do along with perhaps a Psalm associated with asking for Mercy. I tend to look at the energy more as 'trickster' energy than anything purely malelific.

Aside from this idea what do other practitioners do to alleviate retrograde symptoms.

Jevaud,

I do drawing work if needed but I go into knowing results may be delayed. Uncrossing and removing work I do as planned. I tend to wear Mercury oil on retrogrades and especially on Wednesdays. I hope your experiment is successful! I love working with the Seals of Solomon. Maybe you could select a pentacle of mercury as well if you want to work toward a specific goal.

Good Luck!

Mercury retrograde is a time that usually kills me! And we have to add this weekend the upcomming eclipse. It's a new Moon eclipse, normally a time to start things, but not now in my opinion, eclipses usually take stuff away. I was born two days before a new Moon eclipse and normally in my life projects and a lot of things tend to finish abruptly in a very disruptive and surprisingly way, specially in job and career issues.

I have made a reversing spell this week, I had it planned for a future but I woke up in the morning a few days ago and had the chance so I went straight to the point and performed it. I did not pay attention to the upcomming eclipse and the retro motion. Curious the fact that I made this recently as the planet is going backwards (in a metaphorical way), and although still not oficially in retrograde, is in the shadow zone.
Thank you Saint Jude, glorious Apostle, miracle performer, because you took me back to Jesus.

Hello everyone,

Today we embark on one of the least liked event in astrology, Mercury Retrograde. What do you do during mercury retrograde? What work do you do to minimize the effects of this transition?

I personally like to use Lucky Mojo Mercury oil or Van Van oil, I anoint myself with the oil to mitigate the effects of the transition. I also burn a 7 day candle such as Mercury or Van Van one each week during the retrograde.

Your Birth Star Influences and What They Mean, by Stanley Barrett

This 1940 popular occult classic teaches the beginner basics of Sun Sign Astrology, but even experienced astrologers love it because it is illustrated by the famous art deco artist and sculptor Lee Lawrie, who often used zodiacal motifs in his works of public art. At a time when many women hid their gender under a male pseudonym, the accomplished author, Gail C. Blakey, chose to be known as "Stanley Barrett." The original and rare first edition of this oversized introduction to popular astrology was published in a limited pallet of spot-colours and has been given a brand-new and gloriously full-colour treatment by the editor and restorationist Deacon Millett. A "coffee table astrology book" before such books even existed, "Your Birth Star Influences" is both a contemporary teaching manual and a brilliant example of mid-20th-century book styling.

96 pages, hardcover, illustrated

Does a Jupiter Retrograde affect how you spend and bring in money? If yes, what could I use to protect myself from it's effects? Would it be good to use van van oil? I need some ideas of what I can use or do.

LuckyScorpio,

A Jupiter Retrograde may influence money but I see it more effecting your luck, how you feel about your own growth, ability to bring in and success. You may feel stalled or reverting back to old ways during this time. Van Van oil and Jupiter oil would be a great mix to wear, burn on candles during a transition.

General question: I just received my Lucky Red Clover mojo bag - should I wait until the current Mercury retrograde is over to consecrate and start using it? I've never done work aligned with astrological timing, just days of the week, but thought maybe I should start...

Chelles93,

Yes it would be a good idea to start after the Mercury Retrograde to do work for positive change in your life. You can follow many things to enhance your work including: planetary hours of the day, days of the week, moon phases, planetary movements.

Here is a forum topic on planetary hours: https://forum.luckymojo.com/spell-timin ... t1429.html

There are a lot of things one can consider when doing work, the timing, the moon phase, planetary movements. Some work with as many as they can, others do work when they need to and do not stress over those items. Adding them will add an additional element to the work by alining it with natural ocurances that support the work.

Here is a link on Planetary products sold by Lucky Mojo and use of them as well as timing. Planetary oils are very popular and also mentioned in a Hoodoo classic which Lucky Mojo carries, The Master Book of Candle Burning by Henry Gamache, in this text he discusses the use of planetary candles.
