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.
