The theme of fun continues this week with more planetary action with Mercury in playful Leo. Whether you're a serious-minded Capricorn, a sensitive Pisces, or a super-suspicious Scorpio, life is about to become more pleasurable. It started with Venus in Leo last week and now chatty, thoughtful Mercury joins the party. This potent cosmic combo makes us think more about what gives us pleasure, whether it's within a romance, at work, with the family or any other weird or wonderful part of our lives!
This is about pandering to our inner child, the part of us that doesn't want to grow up but wants to play, be creative, be dramatic or theatrical – to be the star of the show. Venus adds the love, Mercury adds the brains, so this could be about learning to play a musical instrument, being more flirty in romance and using some killer chat-up lines, or making a fabulous presentation at work that gets you noticed and talked about in a good way. So this week, have fun, but think about why you're having fun and make your pleasures pay instead of having to always pay for your pleasures.
