Mercury enters Leo in retrograde. Yes, Mercury is still hanging around in retrograde for a few more days before it catches up and goes direct again in Leo on 5th September. So what should we expect now that Mercury enters Leo in retrograde on 31st August? When Mercury went retrograde in Virgo on 13th August, I advised you to be careful with detail – anything to do with contracts especially, needed to be handled with care and to double and triple check everything as the devil was in the detail.

Now that Mercury has entered Leo in retrograde, you need to reflect on what you want to put in place to make the communication of your creativity as practical as possible to the outside world; how you can win your ‘audience’ over with enthusiasm and inspiration and what will allow you to earn the position you see yourself attaining in any area of life, whether that’s personal, business or pleasure.

Star Planners Astrology Leo


Mercury enters Leo in retrograde. In pragmatic astrology, the zodiac sign of Leo influences the need to be seen as a specialist, so contemplate what that means for you and how that need will be manifested. Feel the warmth of the Fiery Leo energy and plan to achieve your goals by putting in place the courage, generosity and joy that this zodiac sign emanates as a support system to help you achieve your heart’s desire.

When Mercury catches up and goes direct again in the same zodiac sign in a few days time, you will have considered your options with an open heart and generosity of spirit to allow Leo’s ruler, the Sun, to shine brightly in all areas of communication, knowledge and youthfulness of attitude which will allow you to express yourself from the heart. And once you start expressing yourself from the heart, people will fall in love with you.

With love and light, Stephanie x
