Mercury in Leo – Express Yourself

Standard

Astro Alert
Mercury in Leo
Express Yourself

For All Zodiac Signs:
Mercury enters the sign of proud and expressive Leo today! This transit will be in this sign until September 5th, which is longer than usual due to Mercury going Retrograde, from July 25 through August 18, which is usually a challenging time. But this blog is about Mercury’s time in the sign of Leo, which affects all of us!

With Mercury in the sign of Leo our thinking is very strong, so we can feel more confident and tend to demand respect, and can get quite upset if we feel someone is talking down to us or is not listening to what we are saying. One thing we should be careful of especially once the Sun Enters Leo around July 22nd is just how aggressive, pushy, and over bearing we can get. There will be a whole lot of Leo energy swirling around and this means some folks won’t know how to handle this fiery energy, so be mindful and if you feel like your going to Roar take a break and get space!

It’s a good time to focus on your goals, and the more magnificent the goal, the better. This cycle can help you organize your thoughts to concentrate for long periods of time, which can help you meet your goals. Our minds our full of energy and our will power is strong, we are full of perseverance, and have a stronger sense of purpose.

Our minds may just naturally go to the positive, so we can be more kind, easy-going, and cheerful, even though on occasion we can be quite opinionating, stubborn, arrogant, and to forceful.

The little actions we take do really matter in this energy, but the details aren’t as important because we want to get to the point and have some fun. We are much more expressive and a little dramatic, and can do well when we get an opportunity to express ourselves, so giving speeches or telling stories can go quite well.

We also can be very charming, convincing, and persuasive because we are full of confidence and pride, especially when we speak or write. Therefore, we should be mindful to listen to people to hear them and not just to reply, because we might want to chat a lot more then usual. Also watch for gossip, it is all too easy to start talking about other folks during this time, and we can get wrapped up in what we’re talking about and end up over sharing with the wrong people.

With the planet Mercury ruling our thoughts and how we express ourselves in the sign of Leo, we may be particularly concerned with our looks and how we present ourselves, under this energy people feel more like dressing up as we are on the grand stage of life and everyone else is the audience. This doesn’t necessarily mean we will want attention from everyone however, we can be very picky and choosy about who we draw to us and be actually more closed off or even shy emotionally about our deeper truths.

It is NOT a good time to starve yourself, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t diet or eat healthier, but make sure to eat several small meals throughout the day to keep your blood sugar level. Depriving yourself will not go well and can make you feel rather aggressive and moody! You might just crave extra saucy, fatty food, so don’t go overboard.

After working hard we also will feel more like playing just as hard, so set time aside to allow your inner child to explore and have some fun, this is a very natural way of being under this Leo energy and if we choose to ignore it and not allow ourselves some time to relax and enjoy something we love we can become quite irritated and lonely.

Wed. July 5th
“Express Yourself”
For all the Zodiac Sun Signs:
How do you express yourself and your emotions?
Well, get ready folks because mental Mercury the planet that rules over how we think, express ourselves and communicate is shifting major gears today from more withdrawn Cancer and into louder and more aggressive Leo through July 25th.
The focus now is on our goals! And the bigger the goal the better! We all can be much more expressive and dramatic. Some of you will be quite animated and even theatrical, so watch out for the drama, it’s going to be strong. We also may enjoy giving speeches and storytelling under this influence. We are also are more convincing and persuasive.
With all that being said, some folks might experience a completely opposite effect as Leo energy is strong but also can be very reserved when it comes to expressing our emotions! So we can be extremely held back and shy when it comes to telling others how we feel.
Our way of thinking can be quite confident especially when writing or speaking! We can also be quite stubborn and may not listen as well as we normally do while Mercury is in Leo. But it’s a great time to share your feelings and tell others how you are really feeling because you will be real and authentic, as long as you are CAREFUL and speak from the heart, and allow others to be heard as well.
We can get downright aggressive, especially if provoked, and we may end up either realizing what our inner-roar is all about or even experience a kind of rage we’ve never known before! So try to take a breather or a time out if you feel yourself getting upset. Stay away from the people who make you feel upset or the folks that just tend to irritate you.
Enjoy Mercury in Leo’s influence because Leo energy is highly creative, and if you can tap into that side of yourself, (yes, it’s in there somewhere) you could make this time a very positive experience.
Some interesting news for ya folks is that later today, Mercury freshly in Leo makes a pleasant aspect with Venus in Gemini. Rumors will be flying! Gossip is everywhere! Just watch and listen. You’ll find it amusing at how people are going to thoroughly enjoy gossiping this week. You’ll see Astrology in Action, so make sure to again think before you spread a lie now, you don’t want that Karma to come back at ya.
