Leo (July 23-Aug 22)
Get ready to show-off those quintessential Leo traits of compassion and diplomacy. Leo, you’ll want to stay as flexible as possible and if you come at a situation with grace, the combo of your innate conscientiousness and the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus in other fire-sign Aries are ruling your ninth house–your house of expansion and dreams–will help you achieve immense success.
The best way to move through this week (and through the rest of Mercury retrograde) is to focus on the big picture. Not what do you want at that moment, but what do you want in the next year? Two years? Ten years?
A consummate gambler, your Leo instinct is for instant gratification. Mercury in retrograde will help you practice patience and moderation, mostly because you won’t be getting everything you want right away.
For a few rare weeks, you might actually have to try more than once to be good at something or to make sure something is taken care of, Leo.
