Dear Friends,

Mercury is the planet closest to the Sun and it’s swiftness and speed are represented in the magick that it rules over. It’s the planet of technology, travel and mental activities. We honor Mercury each day when we hop into our car and speed down the freeway, when we participate in a friendly debate with friends and when we answer our e-mail. Mercury is everywhere, so why does it need to be honored, you may ask?

Quite frankly, Mercury is one of the planets/deities (depending on how you look at it) that has a profound impact on your day to day life. If you don’t believe me, try looking up the next Mercury retrograde. This period, when Mercury appears to be moving backwards from the earth’s perspective, lasts about three weeks long and occurs three times per year. If you begin to take notice of these times, you’ll recognize that Mercury-related activities (travel, technology, your mind) goes a bit hay-wire. Mercury is related to so many different and important things in your life, it’s important to learn how to work some Mercury magick.

Before I show you the specific spells that deal with Mercury energy, you need to know some correspondences. Wednesday is ruled by Mercury, so it’s a good idea to time your magick to fall on this day. The color orange and the stones of amber and topaz are also associated with this planet. If you want to incorporate flower essences or plants into your magickal workings, almond, lavender, peppermint and dill are all appropriate for working with Mercury.

The first spell I’d like to share with you that deals with the energy of Mercury is a safe travel spell. This spell should be performed on the Wednesday before you set out on your journey. You’ll need the following items:

-A map of your route (printing one out from Mapquest is perfectly fine)
-A green pen
-White chalk
-two pieces of topaz or amber (or regular quartz crystal if you have one – make sure they are very small in size)
-Orange ribbon

Start out your magick by grounding and centering yourself. Picture yourself connecting with the earth in such a way that you’ll never get lost and you always know where you are going. You are drawing the earth’s energy up into yourself, so you’ll always be able to know just where to go.

Once you’ve opened your ritual in the manner which you’re accustomed to, place your map on the altar and trace your route from your home to your destination with the green pen. Next trace the route in the same direction with you chalk. As you use the chalk to mark the map, visualize the chalk as an aura of white protection around your journey and your traveling party.

Next, take your crystals and put one at your starting point and one at the end of your journey. As you place the crystals, say the following words:

Bless our journey and keep us from harm
With light of protection and Mercury’s charm,
Our path be straight and free from strife,
Many more adventures left upon my life.

Close your eyes, and visualize your safe journey. Fold the map into thirds and make sure to keep the crystals safe inside. Wrap the orange ribbon around your parcel and tie it. You should take this with you on your journey to ensure your safe travel.

Mercury is also the planet of communication, so it’s good to have a few spells dealing with communication in your book of shadows. These type of spells help you control the conversation and the outcome of the conversation. One of the most important communication spells to have is the following spell which will help you be understood and heard correctly. This spell is important to use during retrograde, when miscommunication becomes the norm.

For this spell, you’ll need a turquoise stone or piece of turquoise jewelry, as well as a white candle and anything else that you normally have on your altar. Once you enchant the stone, you’ll carry it with you at all times to make communications flow easily.

Ground and center and cast your circle as you normally would. As you prepare to do your magickal work, keep the recipient of your message in mind and think about the message you would like to convey. Hold onto the stone or the piece of jewelry and pour all of your energy into it. Repeat the following words:

Stone of sheer diplomacy
Make my voice heard
The point that I must make today
Must not be disturbed
Remove all clouds
Make clear the mark
As I will, so mote it be.

After you’ve completed the spell concentrate your energy on the stone until you feel comfortable, and then close your ritual as you normally would.

Mercury effects your life in so many different ways, it’s important you develop an arsenal of spells to deal with it effectively.

Brightest Blessings,

    Put three candles in the highest place you have at home,
    inside a plate with sugar all around the candles. Light
    the candles. Ask for three wishes to your guardian angels

    Ask one wish for business, one wish for love, and one
    impossible wish.

    Publish this spell on the third day after you requested
    the wishes [by mailing it to another person, posting it
    to a usenet newsgroup, or announcing your thanks to the
    saints in a newspaper classified ad] and see what happens
    on the fourth day…
