I decided to make a crystal grid for this approaching Mercury Retrograde start at 29 degrees of Virgo, which will be happening on August 31st. I got a piece of Heulandite (which is mixed with Apophyllite in this specimen).
Key Word – Discovery
Crystal – Heulandite
Attributes – Aids your mobility. Helps you give up your negative emotions. Heulandite eases the way when you need to change ingrained habits. It fortifies the kidneys and liver, promotes good blood flow; increases your mobility, eases stiff joints, discs, knee and feet.
Message – Study, knowledge, belief, awareness, enlightenment.
Focus – Your patient nature and attention to detail provide access to insight, motivating personal growth.
Affirmation – I can learn about spiritual power and deep wisdom.
Mercury in Virgo
“Mercury rules the house of Virgo. Hence its effect would be more significant than when in the other signs. Being a mutable sign, Virgos are particularly found to be at loggerheads with the other mutable signs like Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces during this time. People seem to be going through a more introspective period. It would be a dramatic period with emotions and impulses holding the sway. Generally stressful period for the natives of this sign.”

Remember that Mercury Retrograde gets a very bad rap, so use the time in a positive manner by doing all the things that start with “re”
~ relax, refresh, revisit, revise, revision, rehash, rethink.
Look up the House that Mercury is going to Retrograde
|my chart: Mercury will retrograde within my 9th house|
“Mercury transiting retrograde in the 9th house Re-examine what you believe about the world as Mercury backs up in the 9th house. Your beliefs create what you experience. It’s time to consider the future. What you do now effects the outcome. What’s your overall philosophy to life? Are you really living it? This house is also connected to morals and ethics. During this transit you may be called upon to re-assess what the truth really means. This is a good time to re-sit exams previously failed or to go back into education. Use this time to revise, to edit writing, to re-write and proof read your work. Explore books that make you think differently about the world. You may have a sense that you have lost the big picture somewhere along the line. Take some time to re-visualise where you want to be. You may find yourself needing to revisit a place. Generally however, travel plans at this time need to be triple checked. Be prepared for delays, cancelled flights and roadblocks. Mercury would like you to see where you are so you can be clearer about where you want to go. Sometimes we just have to stand still. The 9th house is also associated with the concept of faith. Your faith in yourself or in a higher being may be called into question. Faith adhered to without question can bind you. Keep asking the big questions! Keywords – revisit, re-examine, retrain”
