Mercury and Mars are in the Limelight! At last, Mercury goes direct in the zodiac sign of Leo on 5th September and remains travelling in a direct motion until early December. Communications and all methods of linking with people, especially within our local community will be favourably enhanced; our absorption of information and our intake of knowledge will be heightened and our curiosity will have no bounds. With the zodiac sign of Leo influencing the power of Mercury at this time of forward trajectory, we will have no problem gravitating towards pride of place; seeking the limelight and being the centre of attention.

Star Planners Astrology Leo


Leo gives us the opportunity to be authoritative and courageous in our communications with others with warmheartedness and generosity of spirit at the very heart of what we are trying to achieve, but watch out for any arrogance rearing its head – it’s really important that we learn to value those who have helped us get where we are.

Mars with Star Planners Astrology

Mars in Virgo

Mercury and Mars are in the Limelight! On the same day that Mercury goes direct in Leo, so Mars enters the zodiac sign of Virgo. The one thing we all know about the energy of Mars is that it is a Warrior, not a Wall Flower! In pragmatic astrology, Mars is all about assertion, courage, dynamism and competitiveness. It influences our individuality through honesty and vitality. The zodiac sign Virgo is ruled by the planet of communications – Mercury – and is dedicated to the art of perfectionism, using its skills in a very patient, dignified manner.

Star Planners Astrology Virgo


Expect to benefit from Virgo’s very helpful and intelligent influence in asserting your individuality during this period but avoid becoming overwhelmed and exhausted in the process. Listen to the wisdom of your body and enjoy the bigger picture. Mars is there to help you find your voice and with Virgo’s deep connection with communications, you are likely to find great clarity and articulation in your messages right now. Have courage! This is a dynamic combination which will last until 22nd October.

Sending love and light, Stephanie X
