The way Inner Circle Sanctuary lives with Mercury Retrograde is to stay in touch with Him, via Candle Magick.
In this case, we use a Blue Candle, Mercury Oil, and draw/inscribe His Planetary Glyph and Rad (symbol of three diamonds) on it.
-For Jar Candles, this Rad can/should be carved into the wax.
With Mercury Oil, we anoint the top counter-clockwise, because He appears to be moving backwards through the heavens. This is NOT a Reversing Spell, but to stay close to Him.
-If one uses Pillar or Household Candles, we suggest anointing towards one’s self, for the same purpose.
We light these candles during Mercury Retrograde, and until He is out of His shadow - when He reaches the point where Retrograde started.
****Never Leave Candles Burning Unattended!*****
Ours is a Candle Shop Tradition when it comes to spellwork, namely from Bell Book and Candle, and Cat n Cauldron, which were both home to the Temple of the Inner Circle, headed by Lady Morgana and Lord Mordred. Bell Book and Candle was the oldest Occult Shop in Las Vegas, and had its own deep roots through Tarostar and Charmaine Dey.

With the full moon tonight, I’m sure many people will be creating moon water. In theory, moon water is water that has soaked up the power and energies of the moon. It’s used for many purposes: cleaning your tools, crystals, or candles; anointing yourself with it daily; cleaning your home; feeding your plants; etc.
How do you make moon water? Some instructions say to put out a bowl and let it bask in the moonlight then put it in a jar to keep until the next full moon. Others are more detailed involving herbs, chants, and crystals.
