Mercury in Leo
Until July 29

Mercury has moved into Leo,
where it will travel until July 29.

Well, Sunday was a busy day in the sky. Jupiter turned direct -- after 4 months in retrograde. Uranus turned retrograde ... where it will stay until January 10. And Mercury, at long last, moved back into Leo.

He'll be out of his own shadow in a couple more days (August 14 / 15) and we'll start seeing some forward progress again ... finally!! Sooo, since we have literally months to deal with the retrogrades ... let's tackle Mercury first -- since he moves pretty fast.


When Mercury is in Leo, ideas are forceful, dramatic and self-centered. Thinking is backed by determination and purpose. Mercury in Leo brings focused concentration and a bold, enthusiastic style. It invites you to promote your opinions, but you may not care to hear anyone else's.

People now endorse their own views ... and take disagreement personally. They want support for what they believe or "know" ... sometimes at the expense of truth or even logic. Communication styles are persuasive, but with a touch too much passion to also be "popular."

Under stress, attitudes become conceited, arrogant, and dogmatic. Other's ideas are dismissed out of hand, even contemptuously, and there is a danger of tunnel-vision and intellectual pomposity.

Things to Do When Mercury is in Leo

  • Speak up and present your ideas ... they are your contribution to social opinion.
  • Show off what you know ... but take care to separate fact from opinion, and be sure of your "facts."
  • Invite discussion ... listen to other people's ideas and knowledge, too.
  • Aim for clarity ... ideas you can be proud to share.
  • Show leadership. Be forthright and honest in what you say and think.
  • Take up a creative, intellectual hobby ... show off what you can do.
  • Don't be shy. Be self-promoting in your intellectual life.

Things to Watch Out for When Mercury is in Leo

  • Being pretentious, arrogant, bombastic, and one-sided in what you say and think.
  • Identifying so much with your beliefs that debate (or dissent) becomes a personal attack instead of a discussion
  • Saying things just for the drama of it all.
  • Being too self-centered and prejudiced, unwilling to see the other side of the issue.
  • Saying things that make you look good, curry public favor, or make you "popular" with your audience.

These are bagpipes.
I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired
when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig
under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made sound never
equaled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig.
