Babies, it’s time to get LOUD. On June 26, Mercury enters Leo and its meaning will be felt by all. Mercury rules over communication, and its partnership with straight-shooting Leo is going to prove to be a great match, as communication and relationships become more direct and honest. But that’s not to say it’ll be boring. Expect deep conversations, interesting dialogue and yes, even disagreements as Leo makes its traits known.

Some situations could get sticky, as Leo isn’t one to hold back, and Mercury loves speed. Thinking before you speak would benefit all signs during this time, unless you like getting into knock-down drag-out fights with family and friends at the Outback Steakhouse, or wherever you like to go to get weird in public.  This is also an important time for those born with Mercury in Leo. These signs love to shine, and gravitate towards acting and entertainment. People are drawn to their joie de vivre, and this will only become amplified during this time. Which, while amazing—you make and keep friends with ease, and click with just about anyone—can also lead to trouble. Emotional vampires and those with low self-esteem can often be drawn into your life. Making sure to have clear boundaries and space is crucial with those who wantwantwant what you have.

Listen, “Twilight” is SUPER problematic and I’ll be the first one to tell you that—but at least he was self-aware enough to try and leave Bella alone, you know? A lot of people are afraid to face their issues head-on. It’s way easier to convince yourself that symptoms are the real problem. Like losing weight will somehow address your fear of failure, etc.

You are not the answer to anyone’s problems. No, one, shiny glossy thing is the solution to suffering. All you can do is handle your own shit with compassion, and give others that same space. Protect your sparkle. It belongs solely to you.

Be mindful that this is also the planets’s last direct station before Mercury goes retrograde on July 7, 2019. All signs should work to channel Leo’s enthusiasm and drive to create. Leo has us look at the bigger picture of our lives, and urges us to infuse joy and creativity and intention into it all. Really, it’s a beautiful time to be alive and make everything more than the sum of its parts. Now is the time for vision—what do you see?

Here’s how Mercury in Leo will affect each sign.

Libra

Your warmth is apparent to everyone in your life, Libra. It’s like a warm, yellow glow that shines all over everyone you love. This month in particular, you might be feeling a little extra flirty and extroverted. As long as this doesn’t dip too much into self-indulgence (spending too much on eating out, drinking excessively, etc.)—enjoy it. Everyone recharges their spiritual batteries in different ways. Yours just happen to be very fun.

Scorpio

I know it’s hard for you to rest and recharge. But with Mercury in Leo, now is the time to stretch yourself—to be playful in life as much as possible. What did you enjoy doing when you were little? Do you make time for fun, frivolous things? On your deathbed, you will not be thinking—gee, I wish I worked myself to the bone more. Rather, you’ll think of the times when you were truly happy and content. It’s okay to pause and appreciate. Repeat that until you believe it.

Sagittarius 

Your willingness to be in a good mood is one of my favorite things about you, Sagittarius. People born in this sign seem to instinctively know that happiness is a choice, and one that we can make without shame or guilt. Continue to value your happiness, and lead by example. Others are inspired by you, and I am too.

Capricorn

Ahh, perfectionism. It’s something most of us deal with eventually, and Capricorn, you’ve got perfection paralysis on speed-dial. Mercury in Leo should help be able to put a voice to these fears, and address them as much as possible. What are you afraid of? How are your fears manifesting themselves? Ask the hard questions, Capricorn. The answers will set you free.

Aquarius

This month, expect to experience ‘flow’—or that intense state where you are unaware of time or anything other than what your’e doing. It’s this state of flow that is often associated with amazing creative pursuits, breakthroughs in science and the arts, etc. This state of mindfulness and creativity is amazing, and has long term effects. So clear your schedule, and get down to it.

Pisces

Do something for someone else this season, as your emotional depth and selfless nature really do thrive on being of service to others. When we get personal, and show others how we see them, we get closer. Giving is a gift just as much as receiving, and the joy you’ll experience doing an act of service is truly a gift to yourself.
