Protection from Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde, oh how we love to hate it. But what if we told you, you have the power to turn this chaotic time into a transformative one? Yes, you heard it right!

Don’t let this celestial event bring you down. It’s time to arm yourself with the tools to counteract its negative effects and turn lemons into lemonade.

No more missed flights, miscommunications, or technical nightmares. No more feeling like you’re losing control. It’s time to take charge and show the universe who’s boss.

One of the many Occultist Tik Tokers who I watch, Chaos Occultist is one of the finest in spell casting.  After watching her method for decimating the effects of Mercury in Retrograde I just had to dissect and backwards engineer her method.  

how to prepare for mercury retrograde

Mercury retrograde, the notorious astrological event that has us all feeling rattled, but there’s more to it than meets the eye! Before the chaos even begins, there’s a two-week pre-shadow phase, setting the tone for the retrograde period. And even after it’s all over, we’ve got another two weeks of post-retrograde to endure. But, all is not lost! Embracing the “re” mindset – rethink, review, revise – is the key to not just surviving, but thriving during this time, according to astrologer Liz Simmons. “The keywords for the retrograde period as a whole is ‘re,’ as in rethink, review, revise!”

 This time you’ve got Mercury handled though.  I’m going to give you the tools to prepare for Mercury in Retrograde with a powerful magic spell.

How to Perform the Ritual

As always, you should perform this on your altar or a space commonly preserved for intense focused meditation.  Those candles I told you about?  Yeah light those bad boys up.  It’s time to get started with this Anti-Mercury in Retrograde Magick Spell.  

1)Cleanse your space and the bowl

   So we are performing this particular spell bowl as according to the steps outlined by Chaos Occultist.  She starts by lighting incense. I would use some sort of Planetary incense  particularly anything which would counter act Mercury or bring it into alignment.  Any typical Mercury will do.      

  To adequately cleanse the space it is important to light the incense and then with the lit incense.  Move it CLOCKWISE.  

Why do you want to move your incense clockwise?  

Not just because I said so, but because retrograde gives the false sense of Mercury spinning in reversal (which messes with you.) The planets spin clockwise, therefore it is essential to spin your incense clockwise.  

Note: Not everyone likes to use incense as it can actually have negative effects for some people. In this case to cleanse the space you can very will simply use a spray bottle with holy water or blessed water. However I encourage you to use something which condenses the droplets into something which is vaporized.

2)Add Sacred Rice into your Bowl

3)Add Crushed Eggshell

Eggshells are my favorite. Representing birth, shedding off the old layer. Embryotic novelty, you just can’t do better. Plus they are super easy to make.  Probably one of the only magick supplies you can find in the cold food section of your local grocery store.  

4) Add the Black eyed Peas


As Chaos Occultist says in her Tik Tok, the high toxicity levels of Mercury are what all for Black eyed peas.  This is because Selenium in Black eyed peas can counter the toxic side effects of the Planet Mercury. This is actually a pretty brilliant insight.  

5) Add Special Charm

Add a special charm that deals with whatever you want. 

6) Add Crystals

Special addition:
 If you want to amplify any energy, than I suggest you add quartz.  

7) Stir with Wand

Now that you’ve got everything in one place, it is time to stir that bad boy.  Always remember to do this in a CLOCKWISE manner. This step to remember is very important as the planets move Clockwise. If you fail to remember that step it may mess with the energy that you are putting into your spell. 


You gotta use a sigil here. Sigils are symbols that represent your intentions and desires. . They are a simple and effective way to manifest your goals. You can learn about Hermetic Sigils here. 

Step 1: Set Clear intentions

Get Clear on Your Intentions and write it down!
Before you start creating your sigil, it’s crucial to get clear on what you truly want.

What do you want to manifest in your life?

  • In this case write down the statement:
  • Mercury in Retrograde has zero effect on me
  • Mercury missed me 
  • I block out any negative effects of Mercury in retrograde

Step 2: Simplify Your Statement

Now that you have your intention, it’s time to simplify it. Remove any vowels, repeating letters, and unnecessary words to create a symbol that represents your desires.

Step 3: Create your Sigil


Take the remaining letters and turn them into a unique symbol that represents your intention. Use your imagination and have fun with it!

Step 4: Activate Your Sigil

The final step is to activate your sigil. This can be done through meditation, visualization, or simply carrying it with you.

Step 5: Drop it in the Bowl and you're done baby!!

What does it mean for Mercury to be in Retrograde?

Retrograde motion for planets refers to the apparent motion of a planet in the sky as seen from the Earth, in which the planet appears to be moving in the opposite direction to its normal motion. This phenomenon is an optical illusion caused by the relative positions of the Earth, the planet, and the sun. During a planet’s retrograde period, it appears to slow down, stop, and then move backwards in the sky. This period typically lasts for several weeks and occurs several times a year for each planet. The retrograde motion of different planets can have astrological effects on different aspects of our lives.



When it goes retrograde, it can impact these areas in a big way. But, don’t worry, it doesn’t ruin our lives completely. Instead, it simply slows down our daily experiences. During this transit, you may feel the effects in your communication, transportation, short trips, and mental processes. But, it’s not all doom and gloom, just a slight bump in the road.
