Mercury in Leo
Enthusiastic, challenging, assertive and clever, these natives enjoy speaking their mind. These are the natural performers of the zodiac - funny, charismatic, and very comfortable in the limelight. The great desire of Leo is to be recognized, heard, and acknowledged. What better way to achieve their goal than taking center stage and freely expressing their point of view?
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Mercury is allied with Thoth, the Sacred Scribe. Leo is allied with Anubis at the point where he must acknowledge and release his attachment to his childhood wound. Anubis was an abandoned child, left on the desert floor as a baby by his mother Nephthys. This early wound formed him – it is only when he is able to release it that he is able to step into who he really is.
Being heard is important for these natives. In their shadow, these individuals feel anger and hurt when they are dismissed or ignored. The result can be a shouting match or, alternatively, this native can retreat into resentment at the perceived lack of regard from others.
Mercury/Thoth will stay in the emanation of Leo/Anubis from July 27 to August 11. During this time, focus on what it is that you need to say in some area of your life. Find your roar and speak your truth.
