HERBS for Retrogrades:
Every planet has herbs that work within its elements and energies. Working with these herbs can help us work with the slowed down energy of a retrograde and have some clarity! These are just a few of the herbs that fit here; there are many herbs that can fit to the specific energies or the reaction we have to these energies.
(check all allergies and contraindications before working with herbs you're unfamiliar with)

Mercury (ruler of communications and coordinations) -clover, dill, bergamot, lemongrass, lavender, parsley, flax, almond, caraway, fennel, horehound, lily of the valley, marjoram, gingko. Herbs that awaken the senses and stimulate the mind work well with Mercury. 

Mars (ruler of anger, motivation, destruction and passion) -mustard, cayenne, cumin, rue, pepper, tobacco. Herbs that a heat or boost energy, many grow in dry environments. 

Saturn (ruler of boundaries, karma, and reality)- patchouli, valerian, St. Johns wort, dill, hyssop, and rosemary. Herbs that grow in the dark and confined places tend to bond with the Saturn energy.
