The Magician Dressed as Strength - Mercury in Leo

Magician as Strength

Mercury moves into Leo today and stays there until July 28th.

Looking at this transit through the eyes of the Tarot, it would be like the Magician is wearing Strength’s clothing. He’s still floating his lemniscates, but now he’s wearing a dress.

The Magician is dynamic, innovative and charismatic. He gets things started and keeps them interesting.
He’s a master communicator, a brilliant theoretician, and at times an unscrupulous trickster.

The Magician inspires us to see the world as the birthplace of all potential. Magic is everywhere, if only we open our eyes.

Strength is also dynamic and charismatic. She fears little, and knows well that the ego is our biggest adversary. It’s not to be destroyed, just directed to best effect.

She is creativity, lust, the power to move with passion towards our goals.

Strength has the attitude that she will succeed, primarily because she has the courage to act, and the capacity to control her actions.

Despite the dress, the Magician enjoys this position, using it as a time to fill his ideas with the fire necessary to make them real. His tongue turns golden in the sun.

Mercury in Leo, or the Magician in Strength’s clothing is a time of energetic and maybe even exhilarating communication.

During this cycle, it’s easy to express your ideas with enthusiasm, and you’re encouraged to do so. Don’t be shy, but try not to walk all over anyone else’s sunshine.

Watch out for ego talk, either from yourself or others. Everyone likes a good storyteller, but boasters are less welcome.

Let yourself be inspired and your desires be clear and focused. When innocent passion is directed by an intelligent will, the possibilities are infinite.

The High Priestess in Strength's Clothing

High Priestess as Strength

The Moon moves into Leo today and stays there until Wednesday.

Translated into Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is wearing Strength’s clothing. She’s thrown off her heavy cape and is spending some time outside with her lion.

The Moon in Leo, or High Priestess in Strength’s clothing is potentially a time of emotional power. Something beautiful that’s usually under wraps can finally be revealed.

The silence is broken. Quiet wisdom and passion can be united. During this time, it might be difficult to keep your ideas to yourself. But why should you?

Try finding an outlet for plans you’ve been sitting on? This is an opportunity to shine if you’re not over-burdened by self-consciousness.

It might feel a little uncomfortable at first, but letting your wilder side out right now could be positive. The sun isn’t always shining. Take advantage of it when it does.

Get down to work. Nothing exciting going on, except maybe the chance to get more done than you thought you would.

Follow the template and don’t worry about being particularly innovative today. It’s probably more important to just get it done.

To motivate yourself try remembering that what you’re working on now is setting you up for your future. Put in the effort and it’ll ultimately pay off.
