Mercury Retrograde Spell
Mercury’s first period of retrograde motion in 2021 lasts from January 30 to February 21! According to the age-old practice of astrology, we are all influenced by the effect of Mercury in retrograde. What exactly does it mean for each of us, though? Read on to find out.
What Is Mercury Retrograde?
Mercury retrograde will provide the positive and negative outcomes to the individual depending upon its placement and conjunction in the horoscope. This retrograde happens three to four times a year as Mercury appears to go backward in the sky. While other planets also retrograde, this retrograde holds an important place as it affects our capability to communicate and exchange information during this time.

What Will happen During This Period?
MERCURY RETROGRADE AND THE ZODIAC SIGNS
IN ARIES (Mar 21–Apr 19): Expect to be frustrated and frazzled. Assertive, impulsive Aries wants to move ahead, and all of the energy is going backward. Watch what you say and how you say it. Pay attention to what people say to you; you might be pleasantly surprised. Your relationship to money and material possessions is shifting, Aries — and you may have recently experienced some unexpected changes to your financial situation or access to resources. Use this retrograde to set yourself up for success by not putting all your eggs in one basket and staying open to sudden realizations around what you truly value.
IN TAURUS (Apr 20–May 20): Take time to formulate your thoughts. Taurus, an unhurried sign, slows down the mental processes. He also governs banking, so delay money matters. Review financial matters, and position yourself for growth. As a pragmatic earth sign, you appreciate the stability and predictability of a solid routine, Taurus. But with Uranus bringing its rebellious spark to your sign, this retrograde will help you loosen your grip on life and let your freak flag fly. Work on wholeheartedly accepting your authenticity, even if that means breaking some rules and stepping outside of your usual box.
IN GEMINI (May 21–Jun 20): Because Gemini rules communications, be prepared for miscommunications when Mercury is in this sign. Expect lots of phone calls or none, and lost or misplaced mail. You may not articulate clearly, and gossip abounds. Old friends may reconnect. This retrograde is lighting up your spiritual side, Gemini, so make time to sit quietly with the intuitive downloads you’re receiving. Pay close attention to themes of your dreams and stay open to psychic visions — as there may be unexpected realizations that come to you through the subtle realm of your subconscious. Extra alone time can give your soul room to explore.
IN CANCER (Jun 21–Jul 22): Expect annoyances at home with baking, gardening, and household duties under domesticated Cancer. Complete repair projects that weren’t finished or done correctly. Your relationship to your friends and your role within a group setting has been shifting lately, Cancer — and this retrograde marks an important time for you to reflect on where things stand. You might connect with new cliques that end up bringing you exciting opportunities, or you may find that you’ve grown apart from an old squad. Embrace the changes in the collective energy.
IN LEO (Jul 23–Aug 22): Avoid speculative investments. It is not a good time to buy and sell or do any trading. Instead, analyze your investment portfolio. Use your know-how and advisory skills to help friends and associates. With rebellious Uranus transiting through the career sector of your chart, you’ve probably been dealing with lots of unexpected developments and sudden changes in your work life, Leo. This retrograde asks you to reflect on the circumstances and choices that have led you to where you are professionally and use them to your advantage. It’s time to be innovative about your future.
IN VIRGO (Aug 23–Sep 22): Challenging situations arise, especially in the workplace. Expect product delays and equipment breakdowns, as well as crankiness among coworkers under finicky, detail-oriented Virgo. Double-check your work before you call it finished. As an earth sign, you’re known for being practical — but this retrograde is asking you to take a risk and be open to trying new things, even if it takes you off the beaten path. You’re in the process of connecting with unique interests and evolving your belief system, so stay open to spontaneity. A last-minute trip or a sudden opportunity could be just what you need to find your groove.
IN LIBRA (Sep 23–Oct 22: Accept your physical attributes; do not have a makeover. Indecision reigns, so limit purchases—or risk returning them. Libra, representing beauty, grace, charm, and diplomacy, is out of balance. Refresh, relax, and rejuvenate. You’re in the midst of an interesting period when it comes to your resources and personal entanglements, Libra — and this retrograde could spring some sudden windfalls on you. You might finally be able to tie up some financial loose ends or start experimenting with new investments. Be sure to set firm boundaries around energy and money as you explore.
IN SCORPIO (Oct 23–Nov 21): Emotions rule—not common sense—so beware. Avoid affairs of the heart. Passionate Scorpio is also secretive, and your secrets may seep out. Keep them in a diary. Your one-on-one relationships are in flux right now, Libra, so it may be time to explore some unconventional dynamics. This retrograde offers you a chance to take stock of where things stand in your relationships and figure out what rules you need to make (and break) to support mutual freedom. Remember, no one can dictate how to conduct things but you and your partner.
IN SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22–Dec 21): It is not a time to travel, so reschedule or expect delays, lines, and lost directions. Instead, take care of local affairs. Patience and a sense of humor are needed. As a spontaneous fire sign, you prefer not to be held down by a strict schedule. But with Uranus transiting the routine-oriented sector of your chart, you’ve probably found yourself developing a new groove when it comes to conducting your daily habits. This retrograde is a time to shake up your calendar and try some new methods when it comes to working your day-to-day grind.
IN CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 19): Avoid buying, selling, or renting real estate under Capricorn, the sign that governs property matters. Expect problems with paperwork, packing, and movers. Reunite with family or vacation at home. You’re in the midst of a super creatively-charged period, Capricorn — so look out for flashes of insight and lightning bolts of inspiration. This retrograde offers you a chance to revisit past ideas and find ways to innovatively apply them to the future. This open-minded energy can also spill into your love life, so pursue new people and look for romance in unusual places.
IN AQUARIUS (Jan 20–Feb 18): With Mercury retrograde in Aquarius, the sign that governs relationships, friendships are put at risk. Petty squabbles, misunderstandings, and miscommunications abound. Know who your friends are. Our homes should be our sanctuary, Aquarius, but right now you might be struggling to find a solid sense of stability. With your ruling planet Uranus retrograding through the home-related sector of your chart, you might have to deal with unexpected repairs or sudden changes to your living situation. Do some meditation to help yourself stay centered.
IN PISCES (Feb 19–Mar 20): Foggy thinking, daydreams, and escapism are the norm; day-to-day realities confound otherwise clear heads when Mercury, the planet that rules logic, is in Pisces, which governs illusion. Practice creative pursuits—writing, dancing, photography, film, or painting. You’re in the process of developing fresh methods of self-expression and exploring out-of-the-box mental pursuits, Pisces — and this retrograde is helping you sort through the chatter to figure out what has meaning. You might find that you’re less interested in casually socializing right now and more into doing your own thing, so march to the beat of your own drum.
MERCURY RETROGRADE IMPACT ON DIFFERENT HOUSES-
- Mercury retrograde 2021 impact on the ascendant house
Mercury is in the directional strength when stationed in the first house, which indicates that you will be filled with many ideas during this period, but may find some difficulty in expressing it to others. You may be driven by a lot of misconceptions during this period, as to how others perceive you or how you are coming across to others when retrograde Mercury is positioned in your ascendant, which can lead to hasty decisions. So, try and wait for the mercury retrograde to over before making any drastic decision. You may also end up analysing things too much which can cause unnecessary delays and anxieties. So, relax, have patience and utilise this position of Mercury to review and reflect on the plans and prepare for future once the retrograde period is over.
- Mercury retrograde 2021 impact on the second house
Second house is the house that is related with the resources and the accumulated wealth that is at our disposal, so with Mercury retrograde in the second house is the time to review and reassess the resources, financial and others. During the mercury retrograde, sometimes the money you expect might get delayed for no reason, on the other hand, sometimes unexpected profits can surprise you. So, money management here plays a very important role. The second house is also known as the sustenance house, the nurturer of the body and soul, so taking proper care of your body and health is very important when Mercury is positioned in this house as then only we will be able to make better utilisation of resources. Keep hygiene around your mouth during this time, otherwise you may face recurrent problems related to teeth during this time.
- Mercury retrograde impact on the third house
Mercury is the natural significator of the speech and communication abilities of the native. The third house is also considered the house that represents how one communicates and exchanges information with others. So, while mercury transits through this house, it is very important to recheck each and every information, email or paperwork that you are passing on to others, which will help to maintain clarity and understanding. It is the significator of electricity, so try to maintain your electrical gadgets beforehand, otherwise, you may face some issues regarding their fitness during Mercury retrograde. Good time to bond with siblings and maintain relation with them.
- Mercury retrograde impact on the fourth house
Mercury retrograde in the fourth house confers one with luxuries and comforts during its transition. The fourth house also represents our inner self, upbringing and childhood, so some childhood issues may resurface during this time, which you may have not noticed earlier, which gives you a chance to heal them. It is also a great time to reconnect with your family members and make peace with them. This position of Mercury retrograde may also incline to update or decorate your house, which may bring a new lease of energy in your life.
- Mercury retrograde impact on the fifth house
Mercury retrograde in the fifth house may bring some old flame or long lost relation back in your life and you may spend some time working on the relationship with him/her. It is also the time for committed natives to see how they can bring back passion and energy in their monotonous or boring relationships. Fifth house represents ideas, plans and strategies, so if your plans and strategies take more than usual time to take off, do not panic, put your thinking cap on and devise new ways to see them through. This will make you confident and instill self belief. Good time to spend with children as it will help develop your creativity.
- Mercury retrograde impact on the sixth house

Time to revamp the eating habits and exercise schedules to keep yourself healthy and fit during this period. Some lenders, creditors or old loans may resurface during this time, so keep yourself prepared.

When Mercury retrograde transits through the seventh house, it gives the chance to clear the misunderstanding whether with your beloved or partner, as certain issues from the past which you might have forgotten rise up again to your discomfort. So, try and clear the air in the difference of opinion. Not good for signing any deal or agreement , if necessary, go through even the finer details to avoid any mishaps. Not a good period to fix marriage, wait for the mercury to turn direct.
- Mercury retrograde impact on the eighth house
Mercury retrograde in this house is a good time to introspect and revisit and renew the old habits, situations and people which are not serving you, otherwise, recurrent challenges and obstacles may hinder your growth. Avoid indulging in any secret act during this period, as there are high chances of it coming out and tarnishing your image. Good time to pay taxes, but stay away from taking any kind of loans and debts. Indulging in meditation and spirituality will be very helpful as it will not only bring benefits to health, but will also provide you with insights helpful to create a strong foundation for the future.
- Mercury retrograde impact on the ninth house
Mercury retrograde in the ninth house is a good period to reflect upon your skills and upgrading them to improve your prospects in the near future. Some of you may need to revisit or brush up your old course or undertake some newone, which will help you to grow and keep up with the upcoming trends. Ninth house is the house that filters the information or belief system that instills confidence to help the ascendant take action. What you do now affects the results, go see how you go through the challenges life throws at you during this time, and reflect what needs to be done to handle them in a better way. These insights or filtered information will help you become clear in the thought process and instill confidence in your being.
- Mercury retrograde impact on the tenth house
Mercury is hailed as one of the significators of the tenths which represents one’s professional career and status, so this retrograde will hold a special importance in native’s life. So, this period can bring up the job opportunities that were not materialized previously. This period is also a good period to reconnect with your old customers and clients if you are doing your own business. Applying past experiences and skills now will help you get through new projects and assignments easily. Good time period to reconnect and reconcile your relationships with your parents. However, be aware of making any satire or jokes about anybody during this time as they may come and haunt you afterwards.
- Mercury retrograde impact on the eleventh house
This transit may make you revisit some old old social group or set up a meeting with old friends after a long time, which may open up new doors of possibilities for you. The eleventh house is also a house responsible for networking and our hearing ability, so be sure not to take any decision based on gossip and grapevine, be clear in understanding and communication before reaching for conclusions, otherwise, it can create havoc in personal and professional life. It also stands for our dreams, aspirations and goals, so reconsider your unfinished goals, so make proper plans and research the network that will help to reach them.
- Mercury retrograde impact on the twelfth house
As twelfth house represents one’s travel and expenditure, so prepare and recheck your itinerary before leaving as you may face unnecessary delays and problems while travelling during this period.

You could face some recurrent problems in health, which could be there to make you aware and take responsibility for your health.

Mercury Retrograde Spell
Carve on the candle what you want with a nail or pen. It doesn’t have to be pretty. Write your intention on a piece of white paper and place under candle. Light the candle & recite.
I pray onto God, My Ancestors, and My Guardian Angels. I pray unto Oshun and To Lord Indra
I am Opening Myself And My Intuition To Your Guidance; So, That my Highest Path May Be Illuminated.
I Banish Negative People From My Life And Am Severing Emotional Ties
I Banish Negative Influences Behavior And Patterns From My Life.
I Bring In Love, Light, Positive Opportunities And Clarity.
Please Protect Me.
So Mote It Be.
PAY HOMAGE TO YOUR ANCESORS!
Homage Is Honouring Our Ancestors and/or the Ones We pray To.
It is a duty based on the belief that when we die we continue to exist. It is also believed that spirits have the ability to look after the living and to influence their fortune. Paying homage to our elders allows us seeking our ancestors’ wisdom, guidance and assistance for us.
We honor by remembering. Remembering also opens up a communication channel with our personal history which shapes so much of our conscious and unconscious identity. As you think on how a relative would respond with a problem or simply by directly asking their advice you might receive some guidance in the form of intuitions, images, dreams or meetings with people with answers.
The ritual of welcoming and honoring ancestors is an ancient spiritual practice found in many cultures and traditions. Thus we begin this ceremony with paying tribute and expressing gratitude to our ancestors.
From our histories our ancestors call to us, asking “whence we come, and how and whither?” We are grateful for their gifts, their lessons, and their challenge; calling us into accountability and responsibility to fulfill their hopes and aspirations, for “What they dreamed be ours to do.”
We call on and invoke our parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles, our siblings, from across time and place, to be here with us.
The best way I have found is To make a meal for my ancestors. My father liked the river; so, I bring him his favorite food, brown liquor and light up his favorite cigarette and speak to him near the river banks. For my other ancestors whom I never met and those that were much older than me. I make them fried fish, pan fried cabbage, black eyed peas and cornbread. This isn’t a typical meal for me; however, this may have been a typical meal for your ancestors. Take small portions and apply to a plate. The leave the place near a cedar tree.
I hate littering but the animals will eat the food and the plate will be cleaned; it’s Divine timing.
OSHUN RITUAL OFFERING FOR PROSPERITY
You’ll need: 5 oranges, 1 yellow candle, 1 white plate, cinnamon, honey, and a representation of the goddess
Directions: Light the yellow candle in front of a sculpture or image of Oshun for five days. (Make sure you put the candle in a safe place. If you plan on leaving it unattended, blow it out, but light it again as soon as you return.) Tell her your wishes, preferably out loud so she can hear you. Place the oranges on the white plate. Pour several drizzles of honey over the oranges. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Leave this, together with the yellow candle, throughout the five days. Put the plate in front of Oshun. When the days are up, you may dispose of the offering.
LORD INDRA’S TRIBUTE
(Real Vedic) Indra is the name of not a god, but God Himself. you can only worship His concept. And that is inside you. No external rituals are necessary, if you can feel Him inside you and outside
If You Want A Closer Relationship; You Must Invoke The Spirit. Please Research Before Doing So.
When your candle has completely burned down, you may choose to recycle the entire glass container with the wax in it. However, if you would like to reuse the holder, take any remaining wax out of the holder. This can be done by placing the holder in hot water or by placing your holder (if it’s oven safe) in an oven set at the very lowest setting (usually “Warm”). Alternatively, you can use a hair dryer to soften the wax in the glass. Once the wax is soft, it may be scooped out or even wiped out with a paper towel.
You may dispose of the leftover candle wax by throwing it in the trash (your own trash if the spell was to bring something to you or a trashcan away from your home if you were doing uncrossing or banishing work), however, if you would like to dispose of your candle in a more ceremonious way, you have several options.
If you have been working with an invoking candle, you may keep it in a ziplock bag and place it in an appropriate place (such as your bedroom for a love spell or your office for a prosperity spell) until your spell comes to fruition. Alternatively, you may bury it on your property or in a potted plant in your home or workplace. You might want to form the leftover wax into symbols such as hearts or dollar signs and place these wax talismans on your altar or add a small piece of the wax to a mojo bag. You can also soften the wax with a hair dryer and use it to form a poppet or doll baby.
For an uncrossing or banishing candle, you may want to bury it somewhere away from your home, bury it in a graveyard or leave it in a crossroads, that is, leave the spell remains in the center of a quiet intersection where two roads cross.
In any case, once your candle has burned completely, your spell work is complete. Your work now is to envision, expect and receive the positive results.
How long does it take a spell to work?
That depends on the circumstances surrounding the situation: often, more challenging situations require a longer time to turn around. I was taught, as a general rule, to look for a small positive sign (such as hearing a special song on the radio, seeing a word on a billboard, a special number on a clock or seeing a symbol of some kind) within three days of completing your spellwork; to look for movement toward your goal within three weeks; and to look for your outcome within three months. If, at any point, you are not seeing one of these signs, then you probably have to go back and give it more energy, employ a new strategy, light another candle or do some more spiritual work around your situation.
Think about this: not every disease is cured with one dose of medicine; sometimes it requires another dose and sometimes several – the same is true for spiritual work.
My experience with the MERCURY RETROGRADE CANDLE is that you notice a serious energy shift in a more positive less chaotic way.
