Mercury moved back into Leo today, and will be there until September 9th.
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, and for part of the time, he’ll be going backwards.
Mercury in Leo, or the Magician in Strength’s clothing is a time of energetic and potentially exciting communication.
Ideas can be expressed with enthusiasm, and it’s worthwhile to share. You can inspire others, and be inspired right back.
Watch out for boasting though, and keep to the straight and narrow when you tell a story. It’s easy to get carried away when the sun’s shining and everyone seems to be smiling.
Be inspired, clear, and focused. But please note, until August 26th, Mercury will be retrograde. It’s sort of like the Magician is running backwards.
Communication and travel are especially prone to mix ups, and with Strength’s energy involved, the results can be dramatic.
It’s nothing to be afraid of, just remember to check your schedule twice, and try to think before saying anything that might cause a stir. It’s hard to take things back once they’re out.
And on a more positive note, it might be a good time to catch up with old friends. Wherever the Magician looks, he sees something interesting, and right now, he’s looking back.
