It’s officially Mercury Retrograde. Maybe you can feel the change, the shift in the way your electronic devices are working or the way communications are going between you and others. You will notice that “things” suddenly require more time, more attention and lots more patience! Mercury Retrograde is often more than a handful of testy, troublesome issues. During this “retrograde” period, you will find other planets are retrograde which affects the overall impact of the Mercury Retrograde.
But there are ways to work with the “flow” of the retrograde- and Psychic – and LA-Story.com contributor- Marie Bargas provides some thoughtful – and useful- tips to deal with the retrograde in today’s post!
Mercury Retrograde: It’s Time for the Retro Busters!
By Marie Bargas
A little over two years ago after meditating and chanting to the Hindu God Ganesha, The Remover of Obstacles for almost a decade, He appeared to me in the fire at a Full Moon Ceremony to the Divine Mother at the Shirdi Sai Baba Temple in Tarzana, CA. Since then, our relationship has become powerful and deep.
This Mercury Retrograde dawns dangerously between two eclipses and several retrograde planets.
–Today, Mercury the planet governing communication is in retrograde and will go direct on September 5 and leave it’s “shadow zone” on September 19.
Already, we have almost entered into a nuclear conflict with North Korea and race riots erupted in Charlotte North Carolina spurring on other “anti-hate marches” in Seattle, Wash., Los Angeles,Ca., and other states.
–Saturn, the planet governing karma, has been retrograde since April 5 and will finally go direct on August 25.
–Uranus, the planet governing sudden change went retrograde on August 2 shortly before the N. Korean war of words. It goes direct on January 2, 2018.
–Neptune, the planet governing the depths of the subconscious went retrograde on June 16 and will go direct on November 22.
–Pluto the dark planet of death went retrograde on April 20 and will go direct on September 28.
Clearly, this calls for more powerful measures than just a Mercury Retrograde candle. I have created a trio of “Retro Busters” to deal with the combinations of retrogrades for relief and protection in this astrologically chaotic time.
Many popular remedies for the Mercury Retrograde prescribe a combination of burning a Mercury Retrograde or Reversal Candle with a specially formulated Mercury Retrograde Oil. I have found that burning a Ganesha candle and doing a simple mantra to the Hindu deity, Ganesha (the “Remover of Obstacles”) is equally –if not more– effective.
— Anoint a yellow Ganesha/Retro Buster candle with your favorite Mercury Retrograde or Ganesha Oil or put a few drops of coconut oil and a sprinkling of brown sugar in the candle since Ganesha enjoys coconuts and sweets.
– The red candle is designed to activate your root chakra and help you overcome obstacles that are causing you the greatest fear.
– The white candle is a combination of all colors and is good for curing all the retrogrades so the onslaught is not overwhelming.
It is up to you to use one or all 3.
–Recite the following mantra 108 times after lighting the candle.
AUM VAHKRAH TOON DAH YAH HUM.
This is a powerful mantra from Ganesha Purana. When things are not in your favor, or when the minds of the people turn negative, depressed or discouraged, the attention of Ganesha may be drawn by this mantra to straighten their ways. The HUM symbolizes “Delay no more, my Lord, in straightening the paths of the crooked-minded ones.” This mantra is used many times in the Ganesha Purana to reduce the violence of cruel demons.
Good luck to you during this retrograde!
