All I’m askin’, is for a little respect when you get home (just a little bit)”*
After a short stay in the homely sign of Cancer, Mercury now enters flamboyant Leo. Here, due to its retrograde period, during which it returns to Cancer only to ingress Leo again on August 12th, it will remain until the 29th August…so we’d better get used to this energy!
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.
The 3-week retrograde period will begin on the 7th of July at 4°27’ Leo and end on the 1st of August at 23°58’ Cancer…more about that in a later article.
The only noteworthy aspects are:
16th August: square retrograde Uranus (Leo-Taurus 6°36’) – willful thinking, unconventional ideas, disruption in journeys, thoughts coming in too fast to fully comprehend.
21st August: trine to Jupiter (Leo-Sagittarius 14°40’) – blowing your own trumpet, striving for knowledge, convinced on one’s own thoughts and ideas.
