Mercury in Leo

Jul 31, 2014 to Aug 15, 2014

 

 

Mercury is always within 28 degrees of the Sun as seen from the Earth. This means that in any chart Mercury is either in the same sign as the Sun or the one next to it. This visual phenomenon reflects the close relationship between Mercury’s role as the communication planet and the heart of identity, the Sun.

Mercury’s entry into the sign Leo puts a greater than usual emphasis on the need to speak from one’s heart as Leo is the home sign of the Sun. Ideally, this suggests that we are now in a period when direct communication is highly likely. Fiery Leo is less interested in analysis and filtered communication than in direct, pure, self-expression. Expect, then, that enthusiasm may carry the conversational day over objective reason and logic.

Mercury in Leo also touches on language as a form of entertainment. Leo loves the show, and now has the Messenger planet ready to do its bidding. We can expect more colorful speech with its focus on impact exceeding its interest in facts. Enjoy the images the mind will conjure now, but try not to be taken in by your own (or anyone else’s) hype. It’s amazing how seriously we can take ourselves, even when the goal is play. A little extra time to filter through the noise, and a little bit of detachment from the ego, can make this period one that is both joyful and productive.

Those born with Mercury in Leo include expressive rockers Bono, Mick Jagger, Jerry Garcia, David Crosby and Ringo Starr. More than just a touch of the bizarre is found in Merc in Leos Michael Jackson, Andy Warhol and Roman Polanski.

Actors Ben Affleck, Charlie Sheen, Sean Penn, Antonio Banderas and Anjelica Huston belong to this group, as do comics Lily Tomlin, Robin Williams and Peter Sellers. Mercury in Leo sports greats include Jimmy Connors, Mike Tyson and Magic Johnson, as well as ex-basketball star Bill Bradley and his fellow politicos Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Ironically, Clinton nemesis Kenneth Starr also has Mercury in Leo.

Other grand personalities who belong to this group are Jacqueline Onassis, Fidel Castro, Kathie Lee Gifford, financier Michael Milken, Virgin billionaire Richard Branson, newscaster Connie Chung and writers Alex Haley and Ray Bradbury.

Overview of Your Weekend Love Horoscopes for July 25 – 27

Weekend Love Horoscope

July 25-27: Intense Pleasure

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of love, horoscopes, astrology

Mars will change signs, moving into Scorpio late Friday evening. This will enhance your libido, and give you the courage to explore your more erotic side — including any forbidden urges you may have. While you might never act on these cravings, you will surely feel the desire to explore them. Either way, you’ll be discreet about it. Scorpio doesn’t like an audience.

In contrast, however, Leo does love attention. On Saturday, the Moon will enter party-time Leo, and it will become a New Moon by early evening. This will set the stage for plenty of emotional drama, as you are determined to pursue pleasure to the fullest degree possible.

You and your lover will have the chance to enjoy whatever brings you the most joy together. Attend a party, go to a casino, or take in a concert or show. Because Leo is the sign connected to romance, it’s possible you’ll meet someone new and find yourself falling madly in love fast. Love is grand this weekend, and the potential to physically enjoy every moment of it is equally outstanding. Make the most of it!

Planet Tracker: Sun in Leo, July 22 to August 22

Planet Tracker

Sun in Leo

Jul 22, 2014 to Aug 22, 2014

 

Leo occupies the middle of the summer in the northern hemisphere, the hottest time of the year for half the planet. It’s appropriate, then, that the sign Leo is associated with our source of heat, the Sun. This central star of our solar system is the hub around which all of the planets orbit. This position of centrality is basic to the Leo personality.

Leo represents awareness of self and is, arguably, the most self-centered sign of the zodiac. Taken negatively, this means that Leo can be blinded by the light of its own ego. Like a shining star, its brilliance can make it difficult to recognize the importance of others. Learning to share the spotlight is a core issue for many Leos.

The Ruler

The Sun in astrology is said to “rule” the sign Leo. That means that there is a natural affinity between this “planet” and sign. Being born with a planet in its “home” sign is considered to be an advantage by astrologers.

The energy of the Sun is thought to flow most easily in Leo. However, a planet in its home sign can also be overly simplistic and narrow in its expression. A lack of obstacles in not always a strength.

Leos, then, can benefit from humbling experiences. It’s important that they learn how to fail, so that they can reconnect to the sources of their creativity and confidence and begin again.

The Child

Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac. It represents that point in the cycle when a child becomes aware of his or her personal power. The discovery of self is a wonderful thing, a fascinating experience in which the rest of the world is seen as a toy with which to play. From a healthy perspective, this offers a sense of confidence that encourages creativity and risktaking throughout life. However, a potential pitfall is for Leo to operate under the illusion that he or she is creating the world in which all of us live, rather than just being a part of it.

Growing up can be a challenge for everyone, but is particularly true for Leos. Moving from the excitement of possibilities to the real commitments necessary for accomplishment can be the measure of Leo’s potential for success. Learning to listen, too, can be vital for Leo to fulfill its considerable ambitions.

Stars vs. Constellations

It is natural for Leo to see him or herself as a star. Those born under this sign do best when their self-confidence is high. Yet, even though it is the hub of our solar system, the Sun is but one star among the uncountable billions in the sky. What appears to be the source of life from one perspective is just another point in a distant constellation from another. Leos who understand that everyone is a star are best able to build the co-operative relationships that can make life so satisfying.

Famous Leos

Leos tend to do well in the spotlight, so show business is full of them. Half the cast of Friends are Leos (Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry). So are Jennifer Lopez, Whitney Houston, Kathie Lee Gifford, Woody Harrelson, Sandra Bullock, Kevin Spacey, Laurence Fishburne, Robert De Niro, Edward Norton, Mick Jagger, Christian Slater, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wesley Snipes, Billy Bob Thornton, Halle Berry and Steve Martin.

Leo pairs in the world of entertainment include Madonna and Sean Penn, Melanie Griffth and Antonio Banderas, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson and Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman (as reporters Woodward and Bernstein). Other Leo pairs are Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky and that perfect Leo couple: Jerry Garcia and Martha Stewart.

Sports stars Magic Johnson, Deion Sanders, Barry Bonds, Walter Payton and Patrick Ewing were all born with the Sun in Leo, too. Showmanship and heart helped make these athletes great.

Jupiter in Leo on July 16th: It’s Time To Get Happy!

Jupiter in Leo

It’s time to get happy!

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of leo, jupiter, astrology

Jupiter, the planet of expansion, faith and opulence enters exuberant Leo on July 16, 2014 and will remain in this open hearted sign until August 12, 2015. With lucky Jupiter in a confident sign all year you can certainly expect a time of abundant joy. The combination of Jupiter’s cosmic luck infused with Leo’s high spirited energy will open up doors over the next year that you may not have considered movable until now. Leo’s bold approach and childlike attitude leaves little room for the word “impossible.”

The planet Jupiter takes approximately twelve years to revolve around the Sun, and spends about one year visiting each sign to sprinkle liberally with cosmic blessings. So when Jupiter enters a new sign it truly is a time to rejoice!

Encourage your creative side

Jupiter in Leo will encourage your creative side and bring out the artist within. Pursue what stimulates your imagination because the more you play, the more you’ll be rewarded for your efforts. If there’s an area of your life where you’ve felt unable to experience delight, you’re about to be pleasantly surprised. Jupiter in Leo wants to renew your faith in what’s possible if you allow yourself to freely express your most vital, lighthearted self. Jupiter in Leo will help you take a chance in a certain area of your life this year and guess what? Your “no risk, no reward” attitude will pay off in ample blessings. All you have to do is take that chance.

Leo is a proud sign and commands respect. Over the next year you may feel that gaining respect, recognition or attention is more important. That’s ok — as long as you don’t become excessively prideful or boastful you’re making the most of what Jupiter in Leo has to offer. After all, with Jupiter here, you’re meant to have a year of enhanced confidence in your ability to shine your light!  It’s ok to bask in a little bit of glory and applause as long as you share the love. That won’t be a problem with Jupiter in Leo because your urge to give love will be bigger than ever now. In fact, your generous spirit will be infectious!

Leo rules the heart and while Jupiter is in Leo your heart will blow up to maximum capacity. This is an incredible gift — especially if you haven’t allowed yourself to open up and fall in love. Leo doesn’t just love by the way, he romances. It’s quite possible that this year you’ll be swept off your feet and have more fun with a playmate than ever before.

You’ve hit the jackpot!

What makes this cycle of Jupiter moving through Leo even more dazzling is the fact that three times over the next year Jupiter will create a gorgeous supportive trine to the planet of surprises, Uranus. When the planet of luck collides with the planet of sudden developments it literally suggests a swift and major windfall! It’s no wonder that astrologer’s have dubbed Jupiter-Uranus contacts the “Lottery Aspect.” In a certain area of your life, with Jupiter in Leo trine Uranus in Aries you will most certainly feel as if you’ve hit the jackpot!

Obviously we’re not all winning the lottery this year – so please don’t take the terminology literally. What you can count on however, is that Jupiter and Uranus working together will assure you that if you follow your heart and pursue your bliss then you’ll surely be rewarded. Essentially, Jupiter in Leo connected to Uranus in Aries will support all of your efforts to shine your authentic, creative light.

The dates of these amazing Jupiter-Uranus trines are:

September 25, 2014

March 3, 2015

June 22, 2015

So go ahead: Live, laugh, play, love, and take a leap of faith that supports self-actualization. Jupiter in Leo wants you to have a grand affair over the next year with the most important person of all – YOU!

Valentine’s Day Horoscopes 2014

Valentine’s Day Horoscopes 2014

The cosmos go to emotional extremes

Jeff Jawer   Jeff Jawer on the topics of valentines day, love, horoscopes, holidays, astrology

Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday in 2014, bringing extra opportunities to celebrate the romantic mood of this holiday … which is intensified further by a Full Moon in dramatic Leo the same day! We can all expect the big gestures and extravagant emotions associated with this outgoing Fire sign. However, serious Saturn in skeptical Scorpio forms a tense square to the Full Moon, casting a shadow of doubt on our high hopes. It’s wise, perhaps, to underplay feelings to avoid unpleasant mood swings. But get more info from your sign’s horoscope to see if your heart will feel the heat of the cosmos this Valentine’s Day!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Your heart may be pounding hard with the outgoing Leo Full Moon in your 5th House of Romance. It’s tempting to let your feelings get the better of you, but isn’t that what this day of love is all about? Well, just don’t be overly extravagant in expressing your feelings because sobering Saturn is part of the day’s story. Its hard angles to the Sun and Moon suggest that a bit of self-restraint and patience is appropriate now.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Even if your expectations are high, it’s wise to keep them within a reasonable range. Today’s Full Moon in Leo could trigger powerful feelings, especially at home, but they can swing dramatically from over-optimism to doubt and fear. Finding a middle course will allow you to enjoy the day without the stress of spending or hoping for too much. Appreciate what you have rather than counting on roses falling from the sky.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

While it would be nice to have plenty of leisure time to celebrate this day of love, taking care of business is likely to become your priority. Don’t make elaborate plans because the complications involved may not be worth the effort and expense. Enjoying the company of a caring person while attending to your usual tasks can, strangely enough, wind up being more satisfying than dinner in a 5-star restaurant.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Celebrate this special day by making a simple plan and sticking to it. While the Full Moon in extravagant Leo might tempt you to raise your romantic hopes to the highest level, there’s something about a meal in a quiet, out-of-the-way place that’s likely to arouse romantic feelings. Avoid impulsive behavior because this holiday can add heat to a slow cooking romance, while going too fast could lead to burnout.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

The Full Moon in your expressive zodiac sign should make this a dramatic day. Your emotions can run the gamut from exhilaration to despair and back again. If you enjoy a wild ride on your powerful feelings, you’re in for a good time. But if you’d like some peace and comfort, lower your expectations and plan on a relaxed and pleasant experience instead of one that aims to be remembered forever.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

A luxurious evening in a private setting could be a perfect way to celebrate this Valentine’s Day. The extravagant Leo Full Moon occurs in your private 12th House where getting away from it all is ideal. Make this a magical time when you’re free to be as bold and playful as possible. Avoid crowded and well-lit places to share a dark corner where your imagination creates a secret, out-of-this-world atmosphere.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Celebrating this lovers’ event with a group might not sound like the most romantic idea, but it makes sense this year. That’s because today’s enthusiastic Leo Full Moon falls in your 11th House of Friends. Think of this as a time for a party rather than a private experience. Having fun with others is especially desirable because it takes some of the pressure off of spending the evening with just one person.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

This Valentine’s Day has an aura of seriousness that makes a simple event more desirable than an extravagant one. Sobering Saturn in Scorpio forms a potent 90-degree square to today’s brash Leo Full Moon, which can take the air out of a balloon that floats on high expectations. Cooking a special dinner or planning a quiet evening in a familiar setting offers the comfort that expensive gifts are less likely to provide.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

A playful Leo Full Moon adds an extra degree of romance to this special day.  This dramatic lunar event occurs in your 9th House of Travel, which makes planning a trip an ideal gift. If you can’t do that, take in a foreign movie or eat out in a beautiful ethnic restaurant. Enjoy the evening without making elaborate promises though, because serious Saturn is lurking in the wings to bring the hammer down on unrealistic expectations.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

The expectations of your partner could be extremely high with today’s bold Leo Full Moon in your 8th House of Intimacy. This could turn out to be a very romantic time, but you’ll probably need to plan it carefully to fulfill your expectations. Surprises are unlikely to prove successful, because knowing exactly what’s going to happen will provide a sense of safety and comfort needed to get the closeness you want.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

You’re usually a pretty chill and relaxed individual, but that doesn’t appear to represent your mood today. A Full Moon in dramatic Leo falls in your 7th House of Relationships to make this a highly emotional day. You or your partner might not want to do anything elaborate and would prefer a quiet evening at home. One big gesture, though, can spur romance without taking too much time or costing too much money.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Your romantic soul should soar on this special day thanks to a Full Moon in dramatic Leo. However, this event occurs in your 6th House of Work and Details, which can complicate your social plans. Take care of all the tasks that you can in advance to free up the time and energy needed to celebrate without distractions. Just don’t let a minor problem push buttons that turn it into a mess that makes it harder to have fun.

Mercury Retrograde Horoscopes (Feb. 6 – 28)

Mercury Retrograde Horoscopes

Mercury reverses through Pisces and Aquarius February 6-28

Jeff Jawer  Jeff Jawer on the topics of mercury retrograde, horoscopes, astrology

Speedy little Mercury, the messenger planet, slows down and shifts into reverse three times a year. Next up, from February 6-28, 2014, Mercury will turn retrograde in watery Pisces and backtrack into Air sign Aquarius.

Mercury’s retrograde cycle is a three-week period when communications tend to be more complicated. Dealing with details, travel and technology are other potential trouble spots. However, this is also a time to tie up loose ends, complete unfinished business, and reconnect with people from the past.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Mercury’s reversal begins in sensitive Pisces and your obscure 12th House of Subconscious, which can muddle messages and make difficulties with the flow of information even more likely. Yet this part of your chart is rich with imagination and spirituality, perhaps reawakening an old dream, creative project or inspiring the devotional side of your personality. Gentle persuasion and tuning in to others needs will be more successful than pushing hard to get others to go along with your ideas.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Communication in group situations could become a little fuzzy with chatty Mercury turning retrograde in your 11th House of Organizations and Friends. This reversal of the messenger planet might also revive an old idea or dream for making the world a better place. Reconnecting with old pals and colleagues could prove surprisingly satisfying, even if your last contact was not very successful. Being kinder in what you say is a good way to repair relationships.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Mercury is your ruling planet, making its retrograde period more important than it is for most people. This reversal starts in imaginative Pisces and your 10th House of Career where confusion about goals and responsibilities could complicate your job. Don’t assume that people understand you or you them. Double-check to be sure that you’re on the same page when it comes to your job. Reawakening an old career dream, though, is a potential benefit of this pattern.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Travel plans and dealing with people in distant locations could be a bit more difficult during this Mercury Retrograde period. That’s because the planetary master of messages and details turns tail in your 9th House of Faraway Places. Make sure that you communicate carefully and recheck documents to avoid mistakes and misunderstanding. A possible benefit of this cycle, though, is to reignite interest in education since the 9th house is also the House of Higher Learning.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Relationships could grow a bit more confusing with communicative Mercury turning backward in your 8th House of Intimacy. Renegotiating the terms of personal and professional agreements will probably be necessary to keep both parties happy. Showing some flexibility, as well as compassion, will strengthen alliances, but playing power games will not. Cooperation isn’t easy during uncertain times, so stay open to making some temporary changes.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Verbal Mercury turning backward in your 7th House of Partners can spring some surprises in relationships. You love clarity but it may be hard to come by now. Don’t worry too much about the details, but work on bringing more imagination and compassion into your alliances. Someone you found less-than-realistic in the past might be worth reconnecting with now, especially if she or he stimulates your creativity and is a source of inspiration.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Work issues could be more complicated with this Mercury reversal in your 6th House of Employment. Tasks that you thought were finished may need to be redone, which doesn’t sound like fun. But if you bring a positive attitude and a willingness to learn, your level of skill is likely to increase. Try to avoid overdoing it mentally and physically since you could run out of energy more quickly than usual now. A bit more self-protection and care are highly recommended.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

The communication planet turns retrograde in your 5th House of Self-Expression, Romance and Children. Confusion and misunderstandings are possible when making presentations, looking for love or dealing with your little ones. On the plus side, Mercury’s reversal offers second chances in these areas of your life. Just remember to be tender, since this turnabout starts in compassionate Pisces where showing kindness is more important than mastering every little detail. Old creative interests return when you take time to play.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Domestic matters could require extra attention with Mercury turning retrograde in your 4th House of Home and Family. Spending time on repairs and maintenance is an excellent way to use this period of time. Old emotional issues within your household and with relatives may come back to the surface. Don’t just set them aside — facing them is not easy but it’s worth the effort. Forgiving yourself and others for mistakes frees you to create a more successful future.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Whenever chatty Mercury turns retrograde messages tend to be muddled, but misunderstandings are even more likely now. That’s because this little planet’s reversal takes place in your 3rd House of Communication in the fuzzy sign of Pisces. Double-checking details and travel plans makes sense, but being kinder and gentler in how you express yourself is equally important. Tenderness reduces conflict and, in turn, could even inspire your imagination.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

This retrograde cycle starts in your 2nd House of Assets where you may have to review and readdress some finance-related matters. Taking a second look at how you handle money should open your eyes to more effective ways to manage your resources. Mercury re-enters Aquarius on February 12 and will stay in your sign until mid-March, triggering insights about your appearance, attitude, and approach that allows you to let go of habits that no longer serve your needs.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Mercury’s retrograde turn in your sign could put you in a three-week state of deja vu. While this can make it more challenging to stay on top of details and manage new tasks effectively, it’s also an opportunity to restart conversations that didn’t go so well the first time around. Your high levels of compassion and creativity will serve you well in repairing relationships and restoring your reputation, providing second chances to make things right.
