The September New Moon: Here’s How It Will Affect Us

Published

October 2021 New Moon Image

The moon is waning to a new moon on September 25th at 5:55 p.m. EDT. This is when the Moon is lost in the glare of the Sun and completely invisible. The September new moon is a powerful time that can give impetus to our spiritual development and personal evolution. I will share everything you need to know about this new moon in this article.

The New Moon In Vedic Astrology

In Vedic astrology, the new moon is called Amavasya. It is the time when the Moon and the Sun line up.

According to Vedic astrologyShukla paksha, the brightest part of the lunar month begins with Amavasya, when one can count on the indulgence and benefits of the gods. It is recommended to dedicate the new moon to spiritual practices, offerings, and prayers. It is also considered a favorable period for completing previously started projects, cleaning, and charity.

Amavasya is considered the most favorable period to engage in your personal development; spend this day in meditation and prayers.

It is said that any activity related to material affairs will not bring any benefits on this day. However, any spiritual practice you engage in will multiply its benefits when performed during Amavasya. The same can be said about charity and donations done during Amavasya – you will be generously rewarded for your acts of kindness.

The September New Moon

The November 2021 New Moon Image

According to Jyotish (Vedic astrology), the September new moon occurs in Virgo. 

The moon in Virgo is a time of fuss and the need to take into account a lot of little things. If you have a meeting or a deal to close, be prepared for a lot of additional stipulations and conditions. You will have to spend some extra time working on documents.

The energies of this new moon will make people criticize each other and focus on even minor mistakes that didn’t matter much on other days.

During this time, we will all want more order in life. On the negative side, many of us will be annoyed by negligence, inaccuracy, and violation of obligations. All these small tasks will increase internal tension, which will eventually lead to apathy and laziness.

The new moon in Virgo encourages us to pay more attention to the little things. We will have a desire to improve any shortcomings that we notice. At this time, it will be easier to notice small details than distant prospects. Therefore, it’s best to focus on a detailed study of ongoing projects rather than planning new ones.

If you have to interact with authorities during this new moon period, keep in mind that officials will be biased, uncooperative, and not willing to take into account your circumstances. Therefore, it is better to plan a visit to state institutions for other days.

Virgo increases the need for cleanliness and simplicity, so if you have an interview or important negotiations, pay attention to your appearance! It is better to give preference to calm tones in clothes, and pay attention to high-quality accessories during this period. Also, it is good to wear white quartz, which has the ability to absorb all the negative energy, purify your aura, and relieve stress.

The New Moon In Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra

According to Vedic astrology, the September new moon takes place in the lunar mansion of Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra. Let’s take a closer look at this lunar mansion and what kind of energy it represents.

Uttara Phalguni is the Sun-ruled nakshatra. It carries the iconography of a hammock or the rear legs of a cot. Its symbolism is associated with tranquil spaces, healing, and recuperation.

Uttara Phalguni is also called the “Star of Patronage” for its love of humanity and its caring nature. It will drive a desire to alleviate the suffering of society. However, in this desire, a person could become controlling and very stubborn. During this new moon, we may see how those in power will become more totalitarian and controlling, pushing their agenda “in the name of love for humanity”.

Also, this nakshatra deals with relationships and commitments, which makes this new moon a good time to reflect on your relationships and what you can do to improve them. Use this powerful time to honor your current relationships and express your gratitude for the people around you. This is a good time for introspection. Think about what you can do to develop a deeper level of commitment in your relationships and become more loyal to others.

Health-related Issues

Uttara Phalguni may cause weakness of the small intestine (ulcers), disease of the genitalia, injury to the lower spine, severe headaches, appendicitis, thrombosis, and inflammatory conditions of the liver.

The nature of Uttara Phalguni nakshatra: Rajas

Rajas is the energy of change. It represents passion, desire, effort, and pain. The nature of rajas is characterized by a sense of attachment, a desire to satisfy desires.

The new moon in Rajas manifests itself as an active desire to do something, irritation, passion, and strength. The energy of the new moon in Rajas gives anxiety, stubbornness, and a strong possessive instinct. Many will experience anxiety and difficulty with mental concentration during this time.

The goal of Uttara Phalguni nakshatra: Moksha

Moksha is the release from the cycle of rebirth impelled by the law of karma. It is liberation from dependence, from the mirage created by dharma, kama, and artha. Moksha is the dissolution of delusions. The influence of this nakshatra gives an impetus to spiritual practice. During the new moon period, we should be more focused on our spiritual goals and less on the material.

Spiritual Lessons to Learn

Meditation in Solitude Image
  • During the new moon in Virgo, we will be more than usual irritated by other people’s shortcomings. This is a good time for working on patience and acceptance of others the way they are. The energy of the new moon will help to acquire these qualities throughout the month.
  • Refrain from criticism! Don’t criticize people even in your thoughts. Let people be the way they are without trying to change them or tell them what to do. Any criticism during the new moon in Virgo may turn into a conflict. Therefore, try to control your thoughts and your words.
  • Learn to relax and let go of your attachments. Your desire to control everything causes lots of stress and may even lead to depression. Use this powerful time of the month to relax, meditate, and practice pranayama and yoga. This will help you to clear your mind and cultivate more self-love and compassion for the world.

Dos and Don’ts During the September New Moon

Amavasya is one of the best days for donations. When you’re making donations during the new moon, the beneficial effect of it is greatly enhanced, and your negative karma gets purified.

Our emotions play a very important role on the new moon. If you are happy on this day, you will become even happier; if you are unhappy – you will become unhappier. Any of our qualities are strengthened on this day. Therefore, the new moon is a very important time for spiritual seekers since the effect of any puja or recited mantra becomes even stronger on this day.

Amavasya is a great time for new beginnings. This is the time to discard old habits and thoughts, all failures, and embrace the new experience that the new moon promises us.

Favorable activities during Amavasya:

  • Completing tasks
  • Paying off debts
  • Throwing away the old and unnecessary things
  • Fasting
  • Giving donations and gifts
  • Meeting with your parents or other family members
  • Performing any spiritual practices
  • House cleaning (it will help you to clean not only the space around you but also your mind)
  • Honoring deceased ancestors (you can just think about them or look at their pictures)
  • Doing charity (you can donate anything except money)
  • Tuning in to harmony and love
  • Forgiving yourself and others

Unfavorable activities during Amavasya:

  • Making important purchases
  • Getting married
  • Making important appointments
  • Start training
  • Making promises
  • Surgeries
  • Start building a house, or enter the house
  • Making final decisions
  • Taking trips, business trips, travel
  • Making repairs, renovations
  • Appointing important meetings that can affect the execution of transactions, the conduct of business, etc.
  • Making money transactions (invest money, transfer large sums, borrow or lend);
  • Overworking

Manifesting On New Moon

Vision Board Template Manifesting Image

It’s very beneficial to use positive affirmations during the new moon. During this time, affirmations have a special power – they make your positive thoughts and intentions grow and gain strength more quickly. That is why such practices as creating a vision board or Reiki wish box, will be particularly effective on the new moon.

Here are some examples of the high-vibe affirmations you can practice on the New Moon:

  • Love is my inspiration, my conversation, and my life! Peace is my natural state! Gratitude is my way of seeing and being! The face of God greets me everywhere I go!
  • Every cell of my body temple celebrates health and wholeness!
  • All my relationships match the high vibration of unconditional love!
  • Positive thoughts revitalize my body temple!
  • Abundance blesses every aspect of my life!
  • I am guided, governed, and gifted by the eternal presence of Spirit within me! The high frequency of divine love resounds through all of my relationships! Excellence is encoded in my soul and evident in my expression! A consciousness of awe and wonder makes things possible in my life!
  • My commitment to peace, love, and kindness raises the vibrations of the planet!
  • The sweet water of appreciation bathes everything I do!

The Moon Mantra

During the New Moon, it’s beneficial to chant the Moon mantra “Om Chandraya Namaha” 108 times. This powerful mantra vibrates with the energy of the Moon. Chanting this beautiful mantra will help you see things more clearly and look beyond “illusions” to see the deeper meaning in things and the truth that lies within.

Buddha Shakyamuni Mantra

It is very beneficial to chant the Buddha Shakyamuni mantra during the new moon. Recite “Om Muni Muni Maha Muniye Soha” 3, 7, 21, or 108 times. When chanting the mantra, visualize how the Divine Light purifies all your subtle bodies and frees your consciousness from outdated programs.

Chanting the Buddha Shakyamuni mantra brings a change in our consciousness, helps to reach enlightenment, inspires us with new ideas, and gives us confidence in our abilities. Also, it relieves uncertainty and distorted perception of reality.

The Bottom Line

The September new moon will make us more attentive to others’ shortcomings. Don’t let your inner critic ruin your relationship. Focus on your inner peace instead and give yourself a gift of relaxation by meditating, practicing yoga, taking a ritual bath, and doing breathwork. This is a great time for hobbies, studying something you’re really interested in (like astrology, tarot, or foreign languages, for example). It’s great to spend this time closer to nature, hiking or gardening. This is a powerful time for loosening control and following Divine guidance. Be kind, compassionate, and gentle with people during this new moon and always!

Feng Shui Astrology For October 2022: What to Expect This Month?

Published

on

Feng Shui Astrology for August Image

Feng Shui astrology is based on the Chinese calendar. The dates of the beginning and the end of the months are different from those generally accepted in the Gregorian calendar. According to the Chinese calendar, the year’s eighth month starts on October 8th and ends on November 7th. Therefore, all the recommendations given in this article will be accurate until November 7th.

Feng Shui astrology believes that each month has its unique energy and character. Therefore, each month’s energy is expressed through one of the 12 Zodiac animals and connected to one of the five elements.

October 2022 is the month of the Metal Dog. In this article, I will share what kind of energy and events to expect in October 2022 and how to choose dates for different events properly.

Feng Shui Astrology for October 2022

The Energy of the Month of the Metal Dog

According to the Chinese calendar, October 2022 is ruled by the Metal Dog.

In Chinese mythology, the Metal Dog is an image of a heavy sword. This powerful energy gives such qualities as perseverance, rigidity, firm principles, and courage. The Metal Dog by nature is a brave fighter, who can sacrifice personal gain for the sake of a great goal. This is one of the most militant signs. Under the influence of the month’s energies, people can acquire similar traits and become even more prone to pressure and less able to compromise.

It is not a good time to start construction or any other important things – whether it is starting a business or getting married.

This month, it is recommended that you monitor your internal state carefully – do not overwork, rest more often, and do not give in to panic, which is largely based on fake news. Avoid any confrontations this month. Any arguments will take away your energy and lead nowhere. Don’t waste your time and energy. Better go out somewhere close to nature – park, forest, lake, beach, etc. It will help you to calm down and recharge. It’s also beneficial to do weight lifting exercises or even take a martial arts class this month (to balance the Metal element of the month).

October doesn’t promise to be calm. The energies of the month may bring natural disasters, such as earthquakes, volcano eruptions, wildfires, etc. Use natural disaster protection this month to ensure your safety.

In October, it is recommended to avoid traveling in the West direction. This recommendation only applies to long-distance trips. It is ok to take a walk or move around the city or close to it in the West direction.

Auspicious Days In October 2022

October 16th is a good date for starting long-term affairs. Any project started on this date will not promise rapid development, but it will bring stable, reliable results. However, these dates are not suitable for those born in the year of the Monkey.

October 8th and 20th and November 1st are good dates for starting a new business. The business started on these dates will get all chances of success. However, these dates are unsuitable for those born in the year of the Rat.

Inauspicious Days In October 2022

October 10th, 18th, 22nd, and 30th, and November 3rd are unfavorable dates to start anything important. These dates bring difficulties, obstacles, and problems.

October 11th and 23rd, and November 4th are not suitable dates for a lot of activity, organizing important events, or starting medical treatment. But you can use these dates to complete ongoing projects.

October 10th and 12th are “No Wealth Days“. These dates are not suitable for starting a business, making investments, or signing financial agreements.

October 28th and 29th are “Loss Days“. These dates are unfavorable for starting new important projects.

Feng Shui Astrology For October 2022: Check Out Your Bagua Sectors

The Feng Shui Bagua Map: How to Use It?

According to Feng Shui astrology, each of the nine sectors of your house is influenced by a certain type of energy. This energy changes from month to month, from year to year. In this particular article, I will not be talking about the annual chart but focusing on the energy influence of the month.

Now let me share with you Feng Shui Astrology for October 2022!

Center

October 2022 brings quarrelsome and stressful energies to the central part of the house. The energy of this sector brings disagreements, conflicts, gossip, arguments, legal problems, and even violent fights. To neutralize the quarrelsome energies, display the Magical Cosmic Apple here. Also, remove anything that makes too much noise from this sector (windchimes, TV, stereo, etc.). Also, the influence of the 5 Yellow is still very strong this month. This harmful star can bring severe financial problems and all kinds of obstacles in your life. Have the Heart Sutra Pagoda here to mitigate its harmful effect.

Northwest

The energies of the Northwest sector bring romance luck, academic success, and improved creativity. Spending time in this sector will increase your productivity and creativity. You will feel more inspired and motivated. If you are pursuing academic success, activate your luck by displaying the Dragon Carp with a 3-Legged Toad in the Northwest sector of your house. If you want to increase romance energy in your life, you can activate it by carrying the Peach Blossom Tree Amulet throughout the month.

West

This sector brings misfortune and loss of money to its residents this month. If your bedroom is located in the West or you have a West-facing house, make sure you protect yourself by carrying the Heart Sutra Pagoda Amulet and by displaying the Heart Sutra Pagoda in this sector. Also, the energy of the West sector brings an increased risk of burglary, betrayal, and injury this month. If you occupy the West room of the house or if your house faces West, you should carry the 28 Hums Protection Lotus Amulet and the Anti Burglary Amulet. Also, display the Armoured Elephant & Rhinoceros in the West sector of your house.

Northeast

Feng Shui astrology for October 2022 promises windfall luck and monetary gain to the residents of the Northeast rooms and those who have Northeast-facing houses. You may receive unexpected money this month. To activate this auspicious sector, display the Jade Emperor Windchime here. This will help you to attract new opportunities.

South

This is a very misfortunate sector this month. The energy of the South sector brings an increased risk of burglary, betrayal, and injury this month. If you occupy the South room of the house or if your house faces South, you should carry the 28 Hums Protection Lotus Amulet and the Anti Burglary Amulet. Also, display the Armoured Elephant & Rhinoceros in the South sector of your house.

North

Feng Shui Astrology for October 2022 promises wealth luck to those residing in the North sector of the house or those whose main doors face the North direction. The energies of this sector are especially beneficial for business, romance, and new opportunities. To activate this auspicious sector, display the 100 Blessings Energetic Deer and spend more time here.

Southwest

This sector brings increased illness energies to its residents in October. Those sleeping in the Southwest bedrooms are likely to feel extra tired this month. Elderly and sick people should move out of the Southwest bedrooms for this month. Protect your health by displaying the Wu Lou with Joyous Cranes by your bedside if your bedroom is located in the Southwest sector of the house. Also, wear the Medicine Buddha Pendant throughout the month!

East

Feng Shui Astrology for October 2022 promises an auspicious month full of new money-making opportunities to the occupants of the East rooms and those whose main doors face East. To activate these auspicious energies, display the Sky Horse with the Flag of Success in the East sector of your house. However, there is an indication of relationship problems and conflicts for those whose bedrooms are located in the East part of the house. To protect yourself, display the Magical Cosmic Apple here.

Southeast

The Southeast sector brings illness energies to its residents. Those sleeping in the East bedrooms and those whose main door is located here are likely to feel extra tired this month. Elderly and sick people should move out of the Southeast bedrooms for this month. Protect your health by displaying the Wu Lou with Joyous Cranes by your bedside if your bedroom is located in the Southeast sector of the house and avoid excessive lightening. Also, wear the Medicine Buddha Pendant throughout the month!

Feng Shui Astrology For October 2022: Bonus Tip

For sectors of the home where good energy resides, it is excellent to activate with plenty of noisy activity. Have the radio, TV, or fan placed here to churn up the energy so that there is a good level of noise. Also, it is very favorable to install brighter lights in these sectors. Moving the energy in these ways will encourage yang chi to manifest to your advantage.

The Most Accurate Horoscope for October 2022

Published

on

Horoscope for May 2022 Image

This article will share the most accurate horoscope for October 2022 based on the Feng Shui flying stars chart. The horoscope includes predictions for different spheres of life and Chinese zodiac signs and essential tips for protection from negative influences of the month and the activation of positive events and good luck.

Horoscope Based On Chinese Zodiac Signs

I believe that the Chinese Horoscope is one of the most accurate horoscopes you can use to correct the month’s energy in your favor. I follow its recommendations every month, and it helps me attract positive events into my life and prevent unfortunate ones.

I often hear that astrology doesn’t affect you if you focus on positive things in life and follow the law of attraction rules. Yes, a positive mindset is very crucial; however, according to Eastern teachings, three kinds of luck affect each of us:

  1. human luck;
  2. earth luck;
  3. heaven luck.

Your positive mindset is your human luck which is just 33% of your total luck score. Your heaven luck (another 33%) comes from astrology. And your earth luck (33%) depends on Feng Shui and the energy you surround yourself with.

Of course, you can rely on your human luck and believe that your positive mindset can help you overcome all the obstacles. However, let’s say something negative happened, and somebody yelled at you, or your husband/wife cheated on you, or somebody you love died. How many of us can stay 100% calm and positive in situations like this? You see, when you allow yourself to react to a negative situation in a negative way, you lose your human luck. Now you can rely only on your heaven and earth luck.

Ok, now let’s take a look at your earth luck. Is your house 100% balanced? Is it 100% clean and free of blockages? Does it have all the remedies and protection from negative energy? If your answer is “no,” you can’t rely on your earth luck. And now all that is left is your heaven luck that depends on astrology.

With the help of Chinese astrology, you can fix your situation, protect yourself from the negative influences of the month, and activate good luck! All you need to know is what type of energy rules the month and how to deal with it.

It can be quite dangerous to play around with the energy of the month. After reading my monthly horoscope articles, people who have started to follow all of the Feng Shui recommendations religiously have noticed significant improvements in their lives. Today I want to share with you these priceless recommendations for October 2022. I’m asking you to take everything you’ll read below seriously. It’s essential to get all the protection tools for the month because they are literally lifesavers!

For reading your October 2022 Horoscope, all you need to know is your Chinese zodiac sign. To do this, you just need to find your date of birth in the Hundred Year Calendar (click here)!

Mercury Retrograde In Virgo: How Will It Affect Us?

Published

on

Mercury retrograde in Virgo Image

Starting on September 9th and lasting until October 1st, Mercury’s backward dance in Virgo will introduce an element of uncertainty in the sphere of communication, contacts, purchases, and travel. During the retro cycle of this planet, electronics malfunction more often than usual, plans may unexpectedly change, and ex-partners may return. Mercury retrograde in Virgo will greatly slow down the process of perception of new information. It will bring strong inertia to all spheres controlled by this planet.

In this article, I will share some important information about this period and tips on making Mercury retrograde in Virgo a harmonious and peaceful time for you.

What Is Mercury Retrograde?

The retrograde state of the planet is an astrological term reflecting the astronomical difference in the speeds of movement of the planet Earth and other planets.

Retrograde is a particular type of movement of the planet when from the Earth, it seems to us that it’s going backward, although the planet simply changes direction relative to the Sun. All planets periodically become retrograde. For some, it happens every few months or every few years. But Mercury is usually the record holder in this “marathon”: a retrograde period occurs on average 3-4 times a year.

Mercury is the only planet whose retrograde effect is felt by most people on Earth. It is believed that Mercury has a detrimental impact on people during the retrograde period, but if you properly use the energy of this period, you can benefit from it.

Mercury is the planet of contacts, contracts, information, intellectual activity, communication, and commerce. It is associated with travel and transport, negotiations, training, and signing documents. Mercury is responsible for memory, speech, oratory, logic, and intelligence. Therefore, its retrograde movement may negatively affect all of the above.

Mercury is a planet that has a strong influence on our daily life. This is especially relevant for those living in the big cities, drivers, and people involved in the field of communications.

Mercury has a strong influence on intellect and on how we perceive and analyze information. During the retro phase, subjective perception prevails over objective perception – it is important to remember this and double-check the information before you believe it and share it with others.

Mercury Retrograde In Virgo

Virgo Image

Mercury is a planet responsible for intellectual abilities, communication, speech, memory, and studying. Virgo is a sign of Mercury’s exaltation – this is where its maximum power lays. In this position, Mercury promises intelligent and detailed thinking and the ability to solve long-standing problems. Exalted Mercury retrograde creates a high possibility of misunderstandings and misinterpretations. Your words could be misquoted easily and lead to a conflict. We can also easily misunderstand others. Therefore, it is important to remember – when in doubt, ask questions to clarify the situation rather than make assumptions or jump to conclusions.

Mercury is also responsible for business and career. Mercury in Virgo is a good time to start a new business or get a new job. But when Mercury is in retrograde motion, it is not the best time for new beginnings in a career or starting a new business if your intentions are purely materialistic. However, if you focus on serving your clients instead of gaining profits, you can actually get Mercury’s support in your business.

In terms of health, Mercury retrograde in Virgo may provoke sleep disorders, and bring problems with respiratory organs and bowel function.

Spiritual Lessons

Any planet that is in retro motion creates the possibility of clearing our negative karma by learning the spiritual lessons that the planet brings. Here are the spiritual lessons that Mercury teaches us during this retrograde phase:

  • Learning how to slow down and observe.
  • Accepting people for who they are without judging them.
  • Learning to accept people’s lack of focus and attention and not to judge or criticize them for their mistakes or forgetfulness.
  • Developing kindness and compassion towards every living being.
  • Working on your commitment and patience.
  • Learning to be more flexible and adjust to any uncertain situation or unexpected event.
  • Reducing consumerism in your life and spending less money.

The Dos During Mercury Retrograde

During Mercury retrograde in Virgo, the following actions will be favorable:-

#1: Finish things

If you want something new to happen in your life, make room for it, and finish things before moving forward. Think about how many things you need to finish, delegate, or get rid of before you can move on and bring new relationships, abundance, and wealth into your life. This period is perfect for finishing old relationships, getting rid of toxic people, and sorting out your feelings and emotions. You can also quit your old job.

#2: Deal with unfinished and running projects and documents

You can finish the article or finish the book you’re working on. It is good to restore order and throw away all unnecessary papers, archives, and media.

#3: Meet with friends

This is a good time to meet with friends and family members you haven’t seen in a long time. If you had some miscommunication problems in the past, it’s time to solve them. Reaching out and reconnecting with people you haven’t been talking to for a while is very beneficial during this time.

#4: Analyze your mental attitudes

Pay attention to how your thoughts and attitude shape your reality. Think about – what thoughts you can let go of to improve your life. Are there any mental programs, blocks, or stereotypes that prevent you from reaching your goals? Well, now it’s the perfect time to let them go.

#5: Engage in spiritual practice

This is the time when we all need to focus more on our spiritual journey. Meditate, purify and calm your mind, chant mantras, pray and work with positive affirmations.

The Don’ts During Mercury Retrograde

During periods of retrograde, all Mercurian affairs develop slowly; there is often confusion, and the risk of mistakes increases. New projects are slowed down, and transport and mail services are disrupted. Studying, engaging in intellectual work, and conducting negotiations is more difficult. During such periods, equipment breaks down more often, and communication operators have problems with their work. Therefore, take note of what is still better not to do in this period to avoid trouble:-

#1: Making purchases

This is not a good time for making any big purchases, because later you may be disappointed and regret it. For example, you may find hidden defects in the things you buy.

#2: Signing contracts, making transactions, opening a business, and starting a project

During Mercury retrograde, there is a very high probability of making mistakes. Therefore, it’s not recommended to sign contracts, make transactions, open a business, or start a new project during this period.

#3: Getting a new job

Those getting new jobs during the retrograde period are usually disappointed with their jobs later. You may not be satisfied with the conditions, some additional information may open some disadvantages or difficulties the job has, etc.

#4: Making important decisions

Later you most likely will regret such decisions. They may bring you more trouble than satisfaction.

#5: Starting a training or course

If you start a training or take a course during the retrograde period, the study may appear to be more difficult than you expected or the knowledge gained may not be useful.

#6: Making big purchases

Anything you buy during Mercury retrograde has a chance to disappoint you in some way. Don’t buy real estate, cars, or anything that requires big money being paid. Most likely, such purchases will not be useful, will be unnecessary in the future, or will break down.

#7: Borrowing money

If you borrow money during Mercury retrograde, it may be difficult to pay this money back.

#8: Starting a new relationship

Relationships started during the retrograde period will not be long-lasting and will not become serious.

#9: Moving, buying real estate, signing the rent

Any operations with real estate will face delays and obstacles. Therefore, it’s better to postpone moving, buying real estate, or signing the rent.

Spiritual Practices

Here are some spiritual tools that will help you make this Mercury retrograde in Taurus a good period for you.

#1: Mercury Mantra

To neutralize the negative influence of Mercury retrograde on your life, chant the Mercury mantra 108 times daily:

Om Namo Bhagvate Vasudevaya Namah

Chanting this powerful mantra gives:

  • self-confidence;
  • concentration power;
  • intelligence;
  • commendable communication;
  • business skills;
  • calmness and peace;
  • wisdom;
  • knowledge;
  • enlightenment.

#2: Gemstones

To pacify the effect of Mercury retrograde, you can wear gemstones throughout this period.

Emerald is Mercury’s primary gem! It is the closest to representing Mercury through its crystalline structure that helps distribute Mercury’s cosmic rays that the planet emanates. Wearing emerald can help balance the influence of the planet and re-establish balance and harmony in your energetic field and mitigate difficulties caused by the retrograde period.

Jade can be used as a valid substitute for an emerald when working with Mercury gems.

Peridot can be used to strengthen relationships and connections. This stone pacifies retrograde Mercury and balances your life. It can be worn for health in general and to increase wealth and happiness in life.

Aventurine is connected to Mercury and is known as a lucky stone. It is great for overall health and well-being. Aventurine can be used to regulate pitta dosha in Ayurveda and is connected to Anahata Chakra.

#3: Yantra

Mercury Yantra Image

Mercury Yantra (also called Buddha Yantra) helps to decrease the negative impacts of Mercury. This yantra also:

  • helps to boost intellect;
  • improves studying abilities;
  • helps in personal development;
  • improves memory;
  • helps to develop oratory and communicative abilities;
  • attracts success;
  • improves the financial situation, etc.

Display the Buddha Yantra in the North sector of your house and chant the Mercury mantra 108 times while looking in the center of the Yantra. Perform this practice daily or, at least, every Wednesday.

The Bottom Line

Mercury retrograde in Virgo is part of the natural cycle intended to be a time of reflecting and revisiting things that need our attention. This is the time to slow down, reflect, and listen to our voice within. It can feel like a punishment in our fast-paced world, but in reality, it can be a blessing. Mercury retrograde offers us a beautiful opportunity to tidy up, chill out, and get crystal clear on exactly what we need to do to further align with our inner Potential, Power, and Purpose.
