Mercury Retrograde is a time to finish up projects and revisit plans and ideas that are started earlier.

Since Mercury is the planet of communication, slow down and make sure written and spoken words are in order. Look over any documents, emails and correspondences before signing or sending.

Some good gemstones to use during this time are:

Flourite - for memory, focus and peace
Amazonite - calming, persevering, to see all sides of issues
Aquamarine - for anxiety and communication
Clear Quartz - the master healer, great for any situation
Smoky Quartz - good to keep you grounded

Some others would be Black Tourmaline, Hematite and Shungite

Mercury Retrograde can disrupt travel, technology, mechanical and information of all kinds. Just slow down and wait to make any major decisions especially for signing documents or legal matters.

Since the sign is in Libra this go around, focus on relationships of all kinds. Relationships and communication, what a pair! Reach out and reconnect with past friendships, family you haven't spoken to in a while or even reconnect within yourself.

Mercury REtrograde is the RE's. REfocus, REconnect, REad, REview, REsolve, RElax. Take a deep breath and slow down, it's okay to do that. Mercury makes you stop and think before reacting to any situation or decision.

If you'd been putting off making an appointment of some kind, now is the time to do that. Get your car in for maintenance, buy that new computer and make sure you back up your data frequently. Sit a black tourmaline or shungite on top of your computer for added protection. Balance your checkbook and get your finances in order, make a budget.

Just slow down, go for more walks, look for a new job, make plans, read a book (a real handheld physical book), try to disconnect from electronics for a bit and reconnect with nature and yourself. Reach out to family or friends that you haven't spoken to in a while - reconnect.

While most people don’t like when mercury goes retrograde, try welcoming it and working WITH it. It forces me to slow down and take my time mentally and go within and reevaluate, journal, balance, clean out closets and drawers, organize, get rid of stuff I haven't used and donate to a charity, simplify my surroundings. Remove that clutter so there's room for the new to come in!

Listen more, speak less. Be patient. Observe more, react less. Make sure to have a backup plan, just in case. And don't forget to breathe!

As always, everything I ordered smells completely amazing and arrived just as described. The sprays have especially become a recent staple of mine. They're very concentrated and serve as wonderful substitutes for the oils. I also love how the aroma lingers in the air after spraying. For this reason, I've enjoyed utilizing them occasionally in place of burning incense. I definitely plan on buying more of these in other scents. Thanks again, Rhonda! 😊


This is my Nth purchase from Rhonda. I adore your products & I love her energy. My most recent purchase is the mercury retrograde oil. She never forgets to always add a gift with the order. Did I mention the shipping is fast too?


I was born under a Mercury retrograde, but despite that fact, I'm a Gemini and ruled by Mercury. To say my life goes haywire during Mercury retrograde is an understatement. I usually have a really hard time keeping misfortune away from me and those I'm close to during those times, and I have emotional meltdowns… And while things still aren't perfect during MR, I can honestly say they are much improved, as compared to the past, since I've used this oil in conjunction with other oils, mostly those with intent for protection. I still won't start or stop any projects or make any major decisions during MR, but at least I don't feel like I'm full-on under attack. And that, to me, is a huge improvement. I'll continue use and I must have this on hand at all times.
