Mercury in Leo:

Energy for Powerful Creative Ideas  

With the planet Mercury now in Leo it’s full steam ahead for some very creative ideas. 

In astrology, Mercury is the planet of the intellect as well as communication. Leo energy is very grand indeed, so ideas born during a Mercury in Leo transit are sure to be epic, off the scale, and possibly downright deluded – but oh, so very appealing! 

During this astrological transit, details are not very important, or so it seems, because Leo energy is all about the bigger picture not the nitty-gritty. It’s Mercury in Leo’s job to envision a greater future and to paint an inspirational picture – not to map how to get there; that’s more a Mercury in Virgo thing. We’ll get to that in a few weeks when Mercury leaves Leo on August 19. 

Mercury in astrology represents how we think, so during Mercury in Leo, it’s a time for confident thinking, positive thinking, larger than life thinking and can-do thinking. However, Leo is a Fixed sign, and this energy can be quite dogmatic. There’s the danger of tunnel vision during this transit – we tend to think that our ideas show the best way or indeed the only way to proceed; that’s Leo arrogance for you. 

The astrological Mercury also rules communication, and when Mercury transits Leo, it's likely to be theatrical, dramatic and attention-grabbing for sure. Leo energy knows how to tell a story and how to sell a story too, so this is a great period for getting others on board to back your ideas. When others disagree, however, it’s likely that we’ll see tempers flare. Nobody disagrees with Leo energy – how dare they!

The Mercury in Leo transit will affect each Sun sign slightly differently, depending which solar house is emphasized during the transit, and how the energies of Leo and the other zodiac sign mesh together in their natal horoscope chart.

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Mercury in Leo

It’s a very creative transit for  the zodiac sign of Aries, and you’re probably bubbling over with brilliant ideas. Some of them, you’ve probably been sitting on for a while, but you can use the organizational excellence of this Leo energy to actually get started. It’s a great time for art, writing, dance, music and theater, so let your imagination run wild and enjoy!

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Mercury in Leo

This would be a good time to start writing your life history, Taurus, even if it’s just informal notes for your family. There’s a nostalgic vibe mixed in with an intellectual and communication ability, so what better way to use this energy than to celebrate your own roots? Genealogy is fun for you during this period, and you’ll also enjoy revisiting childhood haunts.

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Mercury in Leo

Mercury is your ruling planet, Gemini, and now it’s transiting your communication zone – so your already top-notch skills are off the scale now. If you work in sales, media, marketing, PR or similar industries, push yourself forward and show off what you can do. In your personal life you can make use of Leo’s spirit of generosity to get back in touch with someone who’s wronged you.

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Mercury in Leo

Mercury’s presence in your money zone is helpful, Cancer, and should mean you can avoid too much impulse spending, even given the zodiac sign of Leo’s luxury-loving energy. Now is a good time to shop around for better deals on your credit cards or insurance, or even to draw up a budget. However, don’t rationalize yourself out of any treats at all. It’s OK to allow yourself some joy.

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 22) During Mercury in Leo

Mercury’s presence in your own sign of the zodiac enhances your powers of self-expression, making you very hard indeed to miss in a crowded room! You’re showcasing all that is best about your zodiac sign’s communication gifts, including tolerance and a warm-hearted willingness to give people another chance. Lead the way, Leo.

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 23 – September 22) During Mercury in Leo

Be careful with social media for a few weeks, Virgo. Mercury is transiting your privacy zone, and Leo’s energy is not exactly known for wanting to keep things to itself – so the risk of over-sharing is considerable. This is also an astrological transit for enjoying your own company. Don’t feel that you have to socialize if you don’t want to.

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 23 – October 22) During Mercury in Leo

Do great minds really think alike? This is your chance to find out, Libra! Planet Mercury is transiting your social zone, so sharing ideas, plans and strategies with friends and colleagues should bring some excellent results. This is fiery Leo energy though, Libra, so watch out for a tendency to hog the conversation. You may gain more from listening than speaking.

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Mercury in Leo

Mercury in Leo transits are strong on organizational skills, which is just what you need right now, Scorpio. Think long-term strategy, both for work and for your personal life. It’s not about the day to day grind now, Scorpio, it’s about visualizing where you want to be in five or ten years; the astrological energy of this transit will help you take the initial steps towards that goal.

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Mercury in Leo 

Free your mind to tackle some of life’s bigger questions, Sagittarius. Mercury transits your philosophy zone for a while, so what you ask is more important than the answers you may or may not receive. Find joy in thinking beyond limits, and don’t allow others to pen you in or pigeonhole you. You’ll certainly be able to defend your opinions during this transit – and then some!

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 19) During Mercury in Leo 

Dig deep, Capricorn. There’s something that fascinates you and you want to find out as much as you can about it. The Mercury in Leo transit will certainly help, because this astrology is triggering your research zone. This is not a time for superficialities, so absorb as much knowledge as you can in your chosen field. You could potentially become an expert in something significant.

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 20 – February 17) During Mercury in Leo

Mercury transiting your love zone brings a thoughtful approach to romance. This astrological transit will help you communicate better, Aquarius, because you can be a little distant with your words at times. Pour your emotions into heartfelt talk and allow the Leo energies showcase your love on a grand scale. Let a special someone know exactly how much you care.

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Mercury in Leo

Get set for a busy couple of weeks as Mercury transits your routines zone, Pisces. It’s a great time to catch up with overdue errands or to get ahead with demanding mental work. You have a good eye for time management during this transit, so you can fit more into your days than normal. Make the most of that, as well as the burst of energy and enthusiasm this Leo energy provides.

    I can't describe how excited I was when I found out about this course with my favourite Astrologer Kelli Fox. It was absolutely FASCINATING! I highly recommend it to anyone, especially like me if you love astrology more as a hobby and just want to suck in as much information as you can. I loved all the extra pages of information you can go through that are linked up with Kelli's website when needing a greater understanding. I already can't wait to go back through the course again and finding out how much more I can learn. I hope there will be more courses in future with Kelli. She is the best!Cached

    Kelli is so "on point". I've come to trust her instincts as I do my own. The only issue I have is occasionally on the site itself, some of the links don't seem to connect...like the birth/natal chart...whether through email or the search engine links, or even the ones here on the site. As far as the readings, reports, horoscopes, etc. go....A+ and then some!!!! Love you Kelli!Cached

    Kelli Fox makes Astrology fun and educational. Her honest excitement about sharing her knowledge comes thru with every reading. From the daily and weekly horoscopes thru to the monthly reports she delivers a way of navigating thru even the most troublesome aspects. And the weekly Zoom meetings with her email subscribers midweek, seriously help to plot a course through the upcoming astrological currents.Cached

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached

    Hi there! I am thoroughly enjoying receiving your horoscopes and informative information on how the planets are affecting our everyday lives. To say this year has been so unpredictable is an understatement, but when you explain how the planets are ‘behaving’, it makes much more sense to me. I have known about the spirit world from being a small child and am in fact a registered healer working in my local church helping and teaching as many people as I can. I feel very much the different energies in people who are unknown to me and can sum them up, usually with uncanny accuracy. A gift from God that I cherish and will never abuse.... if I do, I know it will be taken away from me. Thank you again for your insights and please keep them coming. Sending lots of hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗 to you and yours. 💜💞💜Cached
