|Life itself is a Mercurial activity. We are constantly traveling, moving, communicating, checking and balancing, and otherwise shifting our energies as social creatures.
Before you engage in any big undertaking that concerns travel or communication, it's a good idea to invoke a bit of extra magickal mojo to help sustain you through the process. This simple working is a good way to prepare for a trip, a work-based commute, an important phone call, or a lecture or presentation you are to give.
After drying off from your morning shower, sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on your naked body. Next, use a natural ink to paint the alchemical symbol for Mercury ( O ) on your body. I recommend painting the "horns" nipple to nipple, and have the "base" meet your belly button. When you enter a meditative state, visualize yourself glowing in a brilliant orange light and having a very successful undertaking. Vibrate "I-A-O" eight times vocally, and give thanks to Mercury.
