Favorite Conversations: dramatic stories, tales about your life, entertaining talks
Mercury in Leo gives you a comprehension style that is highly personalized. It’s always easier for you to understand something when you can put it into the context of your own life, of something that happened to you, or of what it would be like if it happened to you. This can make you appear to be self-centered to others, some of whom might find it endearing and others who might find it maddening. But, it’s simply that you understand the world from the perspective of self and don’t see things any differently. You have a great deal of self-confidence in your ideas, often because you just want the opportunity to express them and turn them into something creative. There’s a strength of will and mind here that strives to fully embody the philosophy that you create your own reality.
Even though this is admirable, problems can arise when you feel as if you create the lives’ of others, as well. Having a Leo Mercury can make you a particularly bossy or domineering individual in your communication style. You have a mental perspective of being the center and the leader. Yet, it sometimes doesn’t cross you that you can only lead when it’s asked for or required. Still, you make a very exciting person to talk to, as you can be overflowing with enthusiasm and positive energy. You’re a compelling storyteller, even though you naturally tend to exaggerate and dramatize, and love to engage in fun, lively conversations with others. However, it must be fun and lively. You can’t help but feel a bit of disdain for the dull, lifeless folks of the world. Mercury in Leo can display a rather silly, playful, childlike sense of humor that can dispel any of the seriousness and drabness in the air around you.
