So, here we are out of Mercury Retro. What ever shall we do? A communication opening cleanse, to get rid of the last traces of poor communication would be excellent! A good day to do this would be on a Wednesday, but if you can't wait, by all means do it now!
I'm just going to list several things for you to choose from to do. I thought about writing a short spell, but I'm still stuck in retrograde as I write this and my thought processors are bogged.
So, everything we do will be cleansing and helping you to open those lines of communication. We will deal with the throat chakra and Mercury.
Two ways to cleanse yourself:
1. A relaxing salt bath. You can make your own salt scrub with a cup of sea salt. A base oil for massage to use would be either sweet almond, apricot kernel, jojoba, or grapeseed oil. You will need a 1/2 cup of this oil. Mix the base oil together in a small bowl with the salt. After you have the two mixed well, add in 5-15 drops of your essential oils and mix those in well.
Any of these essential oils will work:
For Mercury you can use lemongrass, lemon verbena, lavender, and fennel. or For the throat chakra, you can use basil, bergamot, chamomile, cypress, peppermint, or spearmint.
You could always relax with chamomile tea in your salt bath while you burn an orange or blue candle dressed with one of the oils.
Another thing you could do would be to take a crystal bath. 1. Cleanse your crystals. 2.Fill your bath 3. Put the crystals in the water by your feet, near the drain. 4. Lie back and relax, visualizing the channels opening to your throat chakra. 5. 20-30 minutes for a soak is good.
Always check to the toxicity of a crystal before using. Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academyhas a list of toxic crystals. These are not recommended for baths or elixirs. For example azurite is wonderful for working with the throat chakra, but it contains copper, so you would not want to use it in a bath. You could set them around the outside of your bath, but you would not want to put them in your water. Most blue and green colored crystals get their color from metals, so that is why you wouldn't want to use those.
ATTENTION: The following crystals should only be placed outside your bath. These are throat chakra crystals: angelite, apatite, azurite, celestite, blue calcite, blue lace agate, blue quartz, blue sappire, chrysocolla, kyanite, lapis lazulisodalite, larimar, turquoise
The only throat chakra crystal that would be okay to place in a bath would be Aquamarine.
The following crystals are all associated with Mercury and are SAFE for bath: Opal , Moss Agate, Adventurine, Fluorite
These are NOT SAFE for bath, so set them outside the bath: Sodalite
Another thing that you could do is dress a couple of blue (communications) and/or orange (the color of Mercury) candles with corresponding essential oil (see list above). Don't forget to charge them to aid you in what you are trying to accomplish.
And lets not forget that we have THREE of these to live through in 2018
