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.
