So, there would seem to be some (chic) confusion over what Mercury in Leo until early September actually means? That’s including the Retro phase in the middle of it. Obviously, read your Horoscopes as there are sign by sign nuances that do not apply to all peeps at once. However, strictly in general, here we go:
Q: How long is Mercury going to be in Leo for?
A: Mercury got into Leo on June 26 – Mercury gets out of Leo on September 1.
Q: When will Mercury be Retrograde in Leo for?
A: From July 15 to August 8
Q: Is this a good time to make radical changes to my hair?
A: Only after the New Moon in Leo on August 17/18.
Q: I have been having extra-intense urges invest my savings into my sudden onset stage career/initiate grandiose legislation to salvage my pride/marry X whom i don’t ‘love’ as such but i want a proper wedding to prove i can do it/re-theme my entire wardrobe to better reflect my devotion to steampunk – is this a good time?
A: No. You monitor ALL theatrical-feeling or ego-driven urges when Mercury is in Leo like this.
Q: So, apart from ditching my plan to cut off all my hair, wear only primary colors and stalk more in person from now on, is there anything woo-woo and interesting about this?
A; It echoes the Mars in Leo mayhem from Oct 2009 until June 2010. Endeavors in that time, emotions felt fervently then and surreal synchronicity that will soon become obvious – all resonant. Mercury also rules Gemini, where Venus is still doing HER fateful weirding…so look to late July, for some very interesting karmic hook-ups.
Q: This just sounds stupid – is it good for anything else?
A: Well, it’s probably more fun than Uranus square Pluto (the Zap Zone) till 2016 or Saturn into Scorpio in a few months time. Seriously, it’s amazing for creativity, relationships with older children, the romantic bit of relationships, actual courtships, parties, art, music, cosmetic dental work for a more beautiful smile – especially if it is redoing old work, orgasms to replace your petro-chemical skincare regime (yes, Leo has a Haute Hippy vibe to it), fabulousness and charisma.
Q: Pfft. Anything else?
A: Artists don’t seal a deal till after August 18. Ditto pro athletes, astronauts and performing arts peeps in general.
