Mercury has into Retrograde for the next 21|(ish) days. The next few weeks are going to be tough on those who are sensitive to the energies, but there are ways to cope with this trying time. When we think about my favourite topics, Crystals, what can we use to help us through Mercury’s Retrograde phase? Click here for Crystal Magic.
You need to think about crystals that will keep you grounded, and will help with clear communication. These are the greatest challenges when in Retrograde.
Retrograde Mercury Affects Throat Chakra
Crystals that are associated with the Throat Chakra are immensely helpful when wishing for clear communication. You can wear these crystals as necklaces so they are close to the throat chakra, allowing you to communicate yourself clearly, and communicate your own personal truth.
- Blue Lace Agate – This is my personal favourite for clear communication, it also helps to calm yourself when you are flustered.
Retrograde Mercury Affects Base Chakra
Crystals that are associated with the Base Chakra are immensely helpful when wishing to keep yourself grounded. You can carry these crystals in your pocket close to the Base Chakra, or you can sit and meditate with these crystals to keep you grounded.
- Smoky Quartz – this is my personal favourite for grounding, it also transmutes negative energy into positive energy.
- Black Tourmaline
- Apache Tear – which has similar properties to Obsidian, but their energy is much gentler.
- Magnetite (Lodestone)
Mercury in Retrograde can also be a time of heightened creativity for some, and it can be quite overwhelming, like you have a creative tap running and you can’t find the way to turn it off. creativity is associated with the Sacral Chakra, and working closely with this chakra can help you take control of the creative overload.
- Aventurine can help you quell the creativity, as well as help you to control it.
Try to enjoy the ride, the more you hold on and the more you remain rigid against the flow of energy, the harder it will be for you to get through this time.
