This week Mercury, the Moon and the Sun encounter the ferocious fires of Leo, at their climax, before moving into orderly, rational Virgo. When shifting from fixed fire to mutable earth, we get the chance to distill passion into manageable, practical actions.
These aspects will likely expose hard lines and hard-liners. But under a moon in the compassionate realms of gentle Pisces, our decisions, words and deeds can be infused with the intention of healing the situations we encounter.
Informative Mercury initially entered Cancer all the way back on June 4th. Though it will remain in the cardinal water sign until August 11th, on Wednesday, its long, laborious retrograde concludes. Giving us even more reason to celebrate, earlier in the day the new moon dawns at 8 degrees and 37 minutes of Leo.
