Mercury, planet of media and commerce, enters the nakshatra of Magha in the sign of Leo on July 24th until August 3rd.

This nakshatra translates to ‘The Grand’ and its symbol of a Royal Throne-Room shows your communication becoming more confident and outgoing. You arrive at decisions by intuitive certainty, where you already sense the answer to any question and defy anyone to disagree.

This fixed mentality helps you get over obstacles and stay upbeat about the future, though Magha’s fiery nature and stubbornness may also see you being drawn into disputes. It may be hard to relate closely to somebody around August 1st especially, when you have to spell your meaning out clearly, even at the risk of saying the wrong thing.

Declaring a grand truth has an affirming effect, however, and you end up leading by example and inspiration. You have pride wrapped up in your beliefs and prefer to take centre-stage: Magha has a natural dramatic flair, where you inject a theatrical touch into your everyday conversation, or perhaps take an actual artistic or acting role.

People respond to your fiery rhetoric and you can talk and persuade people when before they were on the fence. You love to point to an achievement everyone can see, and with a strong record to sustain you, you’re the most giving and generous of people.

Mercury receives the influence of philosophical Jupiter through this whole transit, which gives you an appreciation of bigger questions as well as mental precision. Enjoy your enthusiasm for a new subject, but make sure no important details get overlooked and that your ideas are sustainable in the real world.

You are broadminded and optimistic, and any temporary setback, or misunderstanding with a friend is soon forgotten.
