All I’m askin’, is for a little respect when you get home (just a little bit)”*
After a long stay in the homely sign of Cancer due to its retrograde period, Mercury now enters flamboyant Leo for a brief two-week stay.
In Leo, all planets want to be respected according to their nature. Mercury in Leo wants to be respected for his opinions and views and in desiring this, self-confidence often turns into bravado and presumption.
During this brief stay in Leo, Mercury will make the following aspects:
10 August: square Uranus in Taurus (10°40’) – both in in Fixed signs this could be a nerve-wracking day for the less flexible with lots of upsets and surprises. The pace of events will be fast for all of us.
17 August: trine Mars in Aries (24°24’) and conjunct Sun in Leo (25°09’) – bravado and loud-mouthed aren’t the nicest of combinations. However, you could shine all the same! If you can’t be in the limelight find a way to let of steam in a physical way.
