Stay Home - Mercury Retrograde New Moon
Since Mercury is retrograde until October 18, 2021, please do not light any ritual candles for the New Moon on October 6, 2021. It has been my experience (as well as my clients) that doing so reverses your intention. This new moon is not a good one, and it's about anger issues, fights, and violence.
Even though you shouldn't follow the typical candle ritual, there are a few other things that you can do to help you get through the heated energy.
My first suggestion is for you to meditate. If you know me, you know that I am not asking you to do anything I do not follow myself. Spending time in meditation will help all the hiccups in life, not just a tumultuous New Moon or Mercury in retrograde.
My second suggestion is to say the following affirmation before you leave your home for the next few days, The Universe is in Divine Order!" Please repeat this mantra three times or more before you leave your home. Perhaps place a sticky note reminder on your door or in your car; so you don't forget.
My third suggestion would be for you to lay low for a few days if you can. That would be good. And, if you must get out and interact with others, try to be as diplomatic as possible!
