Mercury Retrograde in Leo - Backwards Magician in Strength's Clothing

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.

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.
