Mercury Retrograde in Leo

“Enough about me, let’s talk about you. What do you think of me?”  -Bette Midler/The Rose

This month the Leo energy of true fabulosity (that would be charisma) goes inside when Mercury is retro through August 7th. Fire signs, Leo, Aries and Sagittarius enjoy a temporary rest period off center stage (heaving a theatrical sigh as they exit left).

The good news, fire signs, is it gives you three weeks to assemble sparkling things to say after things turn direct again! The rest of us have a cosmic opportunity to get a few important things off our chests when lions, rams, centaurs (oh my!), do more listening than talking. So, what’s on your mind?

The timing also couldn’t be better to enhance self-esteem from the inside out. The symbolic retrograde motion offers a chance to go back. Take time to reaffirm a few of these things to yourself:

My greatest achievement is …
My greatest achievement so far in 2012 is …
I am very good at …
I am proud of my decision to …
One of the nicest things I ever did was to …
I know I have grown and am growing when I …

Relationships? To quote another celebrity: “Women marry at their level of self-esteem.” – Marie Osmond. Profound isn’t it? One explanation why we may want someone who’s warm and loving, stable, kind, and intelligent, yet keep choosing people cold as ice, unstable, nasty, domineering, and close-minded is that we haven’t reached the point where we have given ourselves permission to realize we deserve the former. We don’t have to settle for the latter.

This retrograde will encourage you to take a look at the patterns in your relationships. Is there anything you want to change? If so, congratulations, you’ll have the perfect opportunity to make it happen. Now that the sign of the Lion’s joined forces with thinking Mercury, you can really turn inward, re-examine your needs and priorities and see whether those relationships have your best interests at heart.

Affirmation: “I am going to work on my inner fabulosity during the next few weeks.”

Cosmic love!
