Beware! Mercury retrograde is in full effect. Please note: Mercury is not actually moving backward, it’s just an illusion that occurs when Mercury passes Earth in its orbit. However, while this cosmic occurrence happens three to four times a year, it has some serious astrological implications. Mercury rules the transfer of information, thus, throwing off all communication, travel and technology during its retrograde. I mean, the WiFi at Brit HQ was on the fritz all last week. Coincidence or Mercury retrograde? Just sayin’. Regardless, I felt like it was time to burn some sage and harness some crystal power to get us through the final days of Mercury retrograde without incident.
Stones: amethyst and quartz
Properties: Amethyst is a calming stone to help promote peace and balance during this crazy time. Quartz crystals are among the most common in the world, are seen as a source of light and can help guide you through muddled communication.
