"When a man gives his opinion, he's a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she's a bitch."

-- Bette Davis

When the communication planet enters the fiery and fixed energy of Leo August 9 through 24, talk becomes direct and dramatic. We feel more compelled to speak from our hearts than to analyze or dissect information. Drop the drone tone unless you want people to walk away from you, mid-sentence. We're more concerned with the potential excitement and showmanship of speech when the Lion is in charge.

If conversation is colorful, fun and entertaining, it passes the Leo litmus test. There's a more childlike quality to our speech now as words seem to spill directly from the heart in a pure and uncensored manner. This is rockstar Mercury, so expect spontaneous bursts of song and dramatic displays of impromptu theater and soliloquies during this transit.

We could potentially feel a bit stubborn and hotheaded where our passions and opinions are concerned. We have to keep our "know-it-all" tendencies in check under this influence, as our need to come off with authority could be taken to the extreme now. Communication seems to be a means for seeking more attention, praise and flattery than usual.

Mercury in Leo seeks an adoring audience when delivering a message. The more "likes" and other shows of approval, the better. If our pride is hurt we may lash out in a fiery manner. The goal now is to stay connected to your heart and speak exclusively from that open and centered truth within. When we choose words that are bold and loving, the feedback is nothing short of glorious.
