Mercury Retrograde in Leo: Find Your Heart's True Path
Beginning this Saturday, July 14, and continuing through August 7, Mercury is retrograde in the dramatic sign of Leo. However, as the messenger planet moves backward during this 25-day period, you can still take steps to improve your life!
Mercury's retrograde in Leo offers a dutiful reminder that it's time to find your heart's true path. After all, this planet carries plenty of inspiration, while also teaching that what you focus on is what you create. And your Sun sign can help light the way!
Play, romance and children are your biggest joys this summer. When you reach the end of your rainbow, you're bound to find a pot of gold filled with the kind of creativity you can inject into everything you do. If you can make each experience one of lighthearted imagination, you'll feel less burdened by your responsibilities (which are considerable right now). The process of change you've been going through will make it all the more delightful!
You're often drawn into your private and family world to get in touch with what you want -- and where you want to go. It isn't an easy task to pry yourself loose from the expectations of those who have known you longest ... but it's essential at this time. Find some solitude and discover what's bubbling up inside you. Journaling is good, and silence is golden.
You've endured a challenging few weeks recently, and with everything you've learned, your perspective is changing. You'll learn more as you travel further along the road that stretches before you, with all the dips and crests revealing treasures ahead. Your path to fulfillment involves connecting and communicating, so rope in those special people who stand out like beacons in your life. Finally, revise your message, for you can't continue with certain existing flaws once all the exciting changes begin to unfold.
Financial challenges right now make it difficult for you to feel secure, especially against the backdrop of transformation around -- and inside -- you. Despite prior commitments and distractions, you can't afford to stop for anything or anyone. This isn't just about money, though. It's also about asserting what you want and value in life. If your flow of joy and openness is blocked, you'll need to further consider your heart as you decide which way you're going.

You need to change your message to make it better reflect what's in your heart, so give yourself the valuable gift of time for yourself. Do whatever you want to do for a change, rather than what others would have you do. Enjoy time alone: travel, movies, a walk in the park. The contemplation that results will fuel the inner fire for all your creative endeavors throughout the next several years.
Quiet service, sacrifice and inner journeying are how you'll find your best route at this point. You may feel as if there's nothing you can do to effect change, but inner work on yourself will be the key to unlock that door. Focus on projects and tasks for others that you'd previously set aside. Writing, contemplation and organizing are all crucially important, as is a willingness to give without immediate return. It's time to make a sacrifice for which you'll be justly rewarded in time!
Your heart's path is tied to your relationship life. It's opening you up to a whole new social world, so expect some adjustments ahead. It's that much more important now to communicate carefully and show respect for those who are letting you in. Until you're familiar with the protocol and behavior within your new group, it's best not to take anything for granted. Simply let your heart communicate what you can't articulate with words.
It looks like success is just around the corner, but something may divert you away from a tantalizing situation at the last moment. A new job or role is likely to have hidden influences or be something different from what you originally anticipated, and you may feel challenged in your public image. Be sure to tread carefully now as you communicate with bosses and other authority figures.

Your route to personal improvement will be found by learning something new. Your mobility may be curtailed this summer, but that doesn't mean you still can't embark on a journey all your own. After all, the quest itself is the thing. Whether you travel through the pages of a book or explore the realms of the spirit, you're looking for what will not only free you, but help you experience what's universal to all life.
You're unsure how you'll make it through the next two months financially, and that doesn't sit well at all. A belt-tightening regimen will require you to change plans with certain free-spenders in your life, but you're doggedly determined to leverage yourself into what you really want to do. Just realize that you might have to work multiple jobs or take on start-up tasks so you can ultimately tackle the work that's in your heart.
You're bound to discover enlightenment through all your relationships. There are things you're used to skipping over with certain people, but past promises (as well as new ones) are now on the table. An attitude of respect and gratitude toward others -- not to mention a listening ear -- should replace sarcasm, however funny you think it may be. Be thoughtful about what you commit to, because conditions will probably change during Mercury's retrograde in Leo. And if a disagreement arises, look for a hidden factor.
Health and work lead the way to your heart's path, so focus on finding a new balance of daily activities. You're transitioning to a time when your output will need to be streamlined, which in turn will enable you to take on exciting new projects. Health matters could feel restrictive, but this is an ideal opportunity to grant yourself the patience and loving care you need to heal. You're almost there!
