Mercury Retrograde Balancer Spray
What is Mercury Retrograde?
A planet is described as retrograde when it appears to be moving backwards through the zodiac. Retrograde planets present us with a series of events over which we seem to have little or no control. Mercury turns retrograde three times a year, as a rule, but the effects of each period differ, according to the sign in which it happens.
Why Mercury Retrograde Balancer?
The Mercury Retrograde Balancer Spray is a tool to help influence the powerful positive and negative mental and energetic effects of Mercury Retrograde. The spray is a unique blend of pure essential oils, flower, gem and elemental vibrational essences. It is a simple way to help create an aware and stable environment before, during and after a Mercury Retrograde. Awareness reduces the frustrations and aggravations typically associated with a retrograde period. Getting a head start keeps you centered throughout the three weeks of the retrograde. Similarly, recognizing the potential of the retrograde helps us to take advantage of the aspect and accomplish more.
How Mercury Retrograde Affects Us?
Although Mercury Retrograde influences everyone differently, it tends to affect all levels of communications and often leads to various kinds of delays and misunderstandings. Practical communications and interactions with, for example, mail, technology in general, publishing and business contracts can become bogged down in conflict. For most of us, it’s not wise to make important decisions during this time. More broadly, the retrograde can create challenges with all of the ways that we relate to the outside world; cars, computers, travel, basically everything, will often be functioning funny. Everything can feel very wobbly, unbalanced and confusing.
However, Mercury Retrograde provides a time for self-reflection and inner growth. Spending time with the quiet part of the self gives us the inner awareness and power to go out into the world and operate more effectively. Mercury Retrograde encourages us to spend time on activities such as: cleaning out closets and drawers; art in any form; organizing photos (and organizing of any kind); meditation; personal readings; etc.
What’s In the Formula?
Essential oils of peppermint and lavender have a balancing quality that provide both stimulating and relaxing energy. The peppermint negates retrograde confusion. It is uplifting, provides mental clarity and strengthens your vocal tone (another Mercury retrograde issue).
Like the planet Mercury, it can be simultaneously hot and cold. Lavender is revered as a nerve tonic and has cleansing and purifying qualities. It is also relaxing and balancing to the entire energetic system.
Aunt Vi combines English flower essences of White Chestnut and Clematis to help ground our thoughts and to calm our over-stimulated minds. This combo creates a clear, calm and balanced state of thinking when we are feeling trapped in the head.
The gemstone essences of Ruby and Blue Topaz harmonize the 1st, 5th and 7th chakras (base, throat and crown). This brings ideas and thoughts (crown) into reality (base) through communication (throat).
"The entire formula is infused with the electrical energy of the Elemental Essence Mercury Starlight. All of the essences are directed into the formula through attunement to the planet itself, prayer and spiritual guidance." Aunt Vi
