It becomes easier now to get ideas across with creativity and humor. Make the most of this opportunity: let your lover know you care with romantic notes and big-hearted displays of affection.
If fights crop up during this time, you’ll probably notice that though they are full of storm and fury, they blow over quickly, leaving you both laughing at the absurdity of it all. Leo loves drama, but can’t stand being down for long. The royal cat may have a big roar, but this will quickly turn into a silky purr if you offer up a little love.
Leos, like most lions, can have their pride injured rather easily. During Mercury’s transit through this sign, it will be important to step gently, choosing words that encourage and support rather than injure. If you find that you’ve stepped on some toes, there’s nothing like a little sincere flattery to soothe wounded egos.
Can’t get your thoughts across using the usual methods? This transit is a great opportunity to try more creative, fun and playful modes of communication. Adopt a child’s perspective and try looking at the world through fresh new eyes. You may find that you begin to look at blocks and detours as opportunities to change rather than frustrating problems involving struggle and strife.
Mercury will be retrograde from July 14 (12 Leo) until August 8 (1 Leo).
