After spending over two month in soft-spoken Cancer, Mercury is now ready roar in Leo. Mercury entered Cancer on the first of June, turned retrograde to extend its stay and only yesterday entered fiery Leo. Fire and air signs who have been feeling stifled by all the water will now be able to express themselves with verve.
Before Mercury in Leo can hit its stride though it must first pass the gauntlet of Neptune in Pisces, Saturn in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn. *sigh* The inconjunct to Neptune happens on Saturday and if anything, this aspect will encourage Leo’s tendency to emote whilst sacrificing some accuracy. It is Saturn in Scorpio squaring Mercury on Sunday that will really bring it up short. Saturn has no patience with Mercury in Leo’s love of drama and may come down pretty hard on it. The second inconjunct to Pluto in Capricorn will take place on Tuesday next and Mercury may once again have to refrain from exaggerating the truth for the sake of a good story.
Don’t worry! Uranus in Aries will happily applaud all of this Mercury’s bright ideas on Wednesday, August 14! After that Mercury in Leo will be free to inspire us, make us laugh and encourage everyone to indulge in a little drama. Mercury in the fire signs are all very good at speaking their minds and Leo is no exception. Time to have some fun sharing our thoughts and feelings! Crack a few jokes and tease one another.
