|While forward motion often p roves difficult during a Mercury retrograde, it is a perfect time to revisit and reevaluate positions and tactics so that when the Heavenly Messenger goes direct, we’ll be ready. This spell reverses the direction of a bad situation and brings balance.
You will need:
* 2 candles of matching size, one orange, the other blue
* A nail or implement to carve into the candle wax
* Olive oil
* Cinnamon powder
* Dried lavender
Using the nail or implement, carve into each candle the astrological symbol for Mercury ( O), along with a symbol or word that represents your problem. With olive oil, dress the candles, the orange one while focusing on attraction and then the blue one with a focus on banishing. Dust, roll, or sprinkle the orange candle with lavender and the blue one with cinnamon. Place in holders side by side on your altar. Light them both while saying:
"Reverse, retrace, revisit, reframe,
Rebalance, regain, remember, rename.
Rekindle, relight, reforge, reshape.
Retry, remark, and resolve."
Let the candles burn down safely. Meditate or do divination to determine how the situation will evolve when Mercury finally goes direct. For when he does, you need to be ready!
