  5. Mercury in Leo: 3...



After a short yet lovely, profound and unforgettable Full Moon of the Guru retreat with Dr. Pillai, here I am, eager to update you on the celestial whereabouts of this week.

By the way, I also made some very nice new friends in California. It was so much fun!

Now here’s a heads-up for you—on July 26 the talkative, intelligent and funny planet Mercury moves into the house of ultimate power and creativity, Leo, the domain of the soulful Sun.

Mercury in this house acquires a so-called neutral status—as it’s not the absolute best position for Mercury, but happily not a bad place either.

In fact, much good can come to you from this transit.

So you can now grab a fantastic opportunity for growing your creative projects and benefit financially, too—because both the Sun and Mercury are two money planets that can bring you riches in several ways! Here’s how.

Settle in your kingdom

You can’t help yourself: Leo awakens your desire for royalty and domination of your environment—in a good way.

It all depends on the planets’ dignity and power. Mercury in Leo will bestow upon your communication both assertiveness and flair.

Think drama and creativity combined into a powerful amalgam for success. Your words will be fiery and effective.

Dust off any projects you’ve put aside due to some secret insecurity and launch a new creative enterprise—the sky is the limit.

Think and speak strong thoughts: You deserve to succeed and wealth is your divine right coming to you via your soul!


Talk to others, not down on others

Gone are the days when your communication just meant talking to your work team and loved ones—now you turn on your phone or laptop and the whole world can hear your speech.

For maximum success, tone down your communication style a bit, just so you don’t come across the wrong way—vain, inconsiderate or negative. You know you aren’t that way, but strangers could misunderstand.

Unconventional Rahu has been stationed in Leo and pessimistic Saturn has been staring at this natural house of children, wealth, righteousness and performing arts. So although your work won’t be all play—Mercury style—you’ll be perseverant enough to finish all your projects in due time.

Expansive and righteous Jupiter will be there, too. Avoid overconfidence and check all your facts before putting all your eggs in one basket.  

Consult all the experts if you must. Then trust your intuition, your inner power and go for it.

Put energy into your words or investments and see them sprout into financial gains.

Vedic technology for success

For maximum glory, use these tools for success hailing from the Vedic tradition.

Try this

Reciting Mercury’s mantra (or vibrational sounds) OM BUDHAYA NAMAHA 108 times on Wednesdays and Sundays will connect you with the higher octave of Mercury to put power in your business.

According to the intuitive Rishis and Siddhas, your communication, commerce and cash money will benefit from traditional remedies to the Sun and Mercury.

Fire Labs (or fire rituals) are ideal vehicles for appealing to the beings behind the planets—in this case Mercury, Vishnu, the Sun and Shiva. These archetypal beings of super powers and intelligence can turn your predicaments into miracles.

Enjoy the energies!
