Emotional needs, moods, challenges, frustrations
With the presence of the Sun and Mars in Leo, a period of increased motivation, enthusiasm, vital energy and intense desires for greater self-expression, creativity, success, greater personal strength, popularity and social affirmation continue.
In addition to these positive effects, we will also have to face the more negative aspects of both Leo and Taurian energies, additionally emphasized by the new Mercury retrograde cycle in Virgo. There will be intense negative manifestations of both temperaments. As the energies of Taurus will support us in achieving our goals, encourage us in finding emotional and material security, fullfilment, comfort, peace and stability in our lives, we will also experience problems with extreme stubbornness, excessive calculative behavior, selfishness, emotional instability and a neurotic state of mind. The influence of the Leo will also show its negative side; there will be an increase in arrogance, blind pride, diva effect (drama queen, over dramatization, hysteria), excessive self-interest, egocentrism and equally pronounced stubborness. Both of these signs are extremely passionate and reactionary volatile especially when they feel their beliefs, well-being in being threathened, attacked or conflicted, so, be careful. There will be a lot of frustration, irritability, and heavy feelings due to somewhat emotionally unfulfilling moods that will prevail during the next week .

Many conflicts will appear and arise, both within ourselves and on the outside, through interaction with our environment. Be careful and be responsible. As many already know, Rx Mercury very much likes to play with our ways of thinking, our self-expression, our decision making processes, communication. We must be careful during such periods, especially when signing documents, making deals, communicating with others, controlling our thoughts, choosing our words carefully. It is important that we take control of our emotions as well, and that we adopt a prudent, responsible, and thoughtful interaction with the rest of the world.
Virgo, a sign where this particular Mercury Rx starts its journey is known for its explicit earthly mentality, which defends the aspects of reason and promotes peace, concentration, order, transparency, usefulness, practicality, nurture. Naturally, during the retrograde period, considerable problems will arise while practicing these aspects of life. Conflicts between intense strong emotions and passions produced by the different temperaments and mentalities of Leo and Taurus will produce more chaotic events and difficult emotional moods in our everyday lives. There will be misunderstandings, a lot of stress, neurotic behavior, annoying unexpected events that will mess with our plans and our structured daily routines such as duties, work, obligations schedules. Communication, both face-to-face or online, will be more difficult, we will find it harder to put ourselves in the shoes of another, it will be more difficult to understand personal beliefs, deductions and viewpoints of others. Also, be prepared to experience unpleasantries when dealing with bureaucracy or in regard to any kind of document management, legal matters. calm your tempers! On the other hand, pettiness and narrow mindedness (the negative aspects of Virgo) will also be emphasized and might cause additional aggravation and general feelings of annoyance.
Conflicts will be inevitable. Powerful emotional output of both fixed signs, Taurus and Leo during these initial stages of Rx Mercury will have to be taken into account by carefully pursuing our desires, wishes and carefully expressing our beliefs, emotions, thoughts.
You can however take more advantage of the energy if you wish so. In terms of new approaches to successfully achieve our goals, ambitions, find new solutions, Mercury will present new ways of thinking, bring new insights, new information, he will refresh our personal beliefs, or transform them, encouraging us to consider other or different choices or options. We can also profit from mastering our organizing, planning skills, tackling on small or large household projects and other tasks, challenges, learning processes, projects.
