Leos are power orators, so this is a great time to harness Mercury's influence to give a speech, start a political campaign, or deliver a monologue.
This transit isn't just about what you say out loud, however—if you've been tempted to write a play, novel, or short story, now is the time to make it happen. When you combine Mercury's need to communicate with Leo's need to be heard, a tendency to come off as showy or egocentric is a possibility. So be sure you're considering your self-expression by listening to the thoughts and opinions of others.

Mercury in Leo Personality
Natural hype men, those with their Mercury in Leo have an infectious energy that can rouse even the sleepiest Taurus. The rays of the sun shine on Mercury to create an individual confident and playful in their communication. Assuming intellectual carelessness would be a mistake. They approach problems with true relentlessness.
Leo Mercuries speak with the flair of royalty—that is, powerfully, proudly, and often dramatically. With these airs of dignity and authority, people look up to them and bask in their warmth. This suits them well as leadership comes to these natives naturally and is enjoyed thoroughly.
Leo Mercury's regality can turn, becoming authoritarian and silencing. The confidence lent by Leo's ruling planet—the sun—supercharges their egos as it relates to their intellect. Therefore at its lower manifestations, Leo Mercuries are overly fixed with little regard for others' opinions and ideas. At worst, they verbally bulldoze over others completely.
