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.

February 2018 – Monthly Astro Forecast

February 2018 Monthly Astro Forecast 
by Ruby

February begins right in the middle of Eclipse Season as the Lunar Eclipse in Leo just occurred the last day of January.

This is a strongly animated energy with the recent Eclipse occurring in the sign of Leo, it was also conjunct the asteroid Goddess Ceres. This means we are being made more aware of our own creativity, and are tapping into this Divine Feminine energy, as this affects all of us so both men and woman. It’s a time to develop the more feminine side of your personality and see what your true potential just might be. Being halfway through the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere means we are slowly shifting from darkness to light. This means we have learned a lot of information thus far on a deeper soul level, and now are slowly developing and processing that information to bring out into our everyday lives once the Spring Equinox occurs.

One of the more strong planetary shifts happening this month is on Feb. 8th, when URANUS leaves it’s tense connection to PLUTO or what I’ve referred to over the years as the “SQUARE”! Since 2009, these two have been going in and out of strong tense connections together, as they have made several meetings from 2012-2015. So finally, we are turning a corner and getting away from this more intense aspect! This one has changed lives and for some folks, it has created the most challenging times of your lives. So good riddance to this energy!

The partial Solar Eclipse will occur on February 15th in the sign of Aquarius, (but remember this affects all of us.) This Eclipse will make an interesting connection to Aquarius ruling planet, Uranus. This energy can bring up strong reminders to value whatever freedom or privileges we do have and open our minds to different new ways of doing things and to be open to new perspectives. This is only a partial Eclipse, so it’s visible for the folks in places like Antarctica and Argentina.

The sign of Aquarius is about being cool, calm, and friendly while remaining unattached emotionally to other folks just enough to do what needs to be done. This influence teaches us how to not let our emotions rule our actions and to take care of business. So there will be a stronger desire to work on companionship with others during this time. Also, topics around health and medicine are going to become more important, especially mental health issues and woman’s health.

The North Node of destiny is currently in the sign of Leo, so during this Solar Eclipse, we are being asked by the Universe to work on healing our emotional wounds around betrayal and jealousy, to better follow our true life path and live out our real purpose. We do this by learning how to accept and love ourselves more. Letting go of resentments is where you start to do this kind of work, forgive yourself and others both and move forward.

It will get easier to do any kind of forgiving and letting go of differences by Feb 18th, when the Sun enters Pisces, the sign of compassion and acceptance. There will be five planetary bodies floating around in the ethereal waters of Pisces at that time, oh wow, can you say ESCAPE and RETREAT! There will be a strong urge to get away from it all as we draw near the end of the Astrological Year. Pisces is the considered the actual last sign of the Zodiac and the Sun in Aries is the beginning of our Astrological Calendar.

During the last part of the month, the energies are going to get heated up folks, so be aware and careful when aggressor Mars meets up with more relaxed Neptune on Feb 17th. This is one of those influences that just of becomes part of the backdrop of our lives until the end of the month, therefore it is important to not take easy ways out to get rest because you might feel like giving up on things all together. You may have to discover innovative ways to help keep you motivated during the last week of February.

Take it easy this month and get real with yourself about what truly makes you happy, and go after it with logic and common sense, but also make sure to take care of yourselves, we are in Eclipse Season and that can be very draining on all levels.

VENUS ENTERS CAPRICORN

Venus Enters Capricorn 
Love takes a more back seat!

Venus the “Goddess of Love” has shifted into more steady, practical Capricorn until Jan 17th, and this means we’re about to be more serious around our love life, finances, and business relations! Business partners and Co-workers relationships should go quite well under this influence.

Our loving or intimate relationships are way more calm and serious during this time, and our focus is on what relationships are stable and secure, so taking risks in relationships or on one isn’t the norm under this influence.

We are more creative but in a structured artistic sort of way, as our ability to connect with folks who support our ambitions is strong. There’s a higher respect and admiration for the connections we make and for the folks who are reliable and faithful to us, and for those who have stuck by our side or who have remained loyal and consistent.

Expressing our feelings is serious business now, as we take more time to warm up to others. So we are generally calmer and cooled down more so in our relationships under this influence. But in our loving relationships, we are “playing for keeps”, as Capricorn energy is all about the long-term like no other sign in the Zodiac!! Do remember this energy affects each and every one of us.
