Update: Role-playing, Mercury Retrograde in Leo

Mercury entered the sign of Leo this Morning at 11:28 am EDT/ 8:28 PDT. It will remain there until It goes direct on Tuesday, September 5th 7:30 am EDT/ 4:30 am PDT.
This portion of the retrograde will change the complexion of the transit, going from re-examination and re-evaluation of how to make improvements in the way you work and think to what roles you play in your daily life and whether they still serve yo. In the next five days you may be asked how best to reach your full potential and effectiveness in some role you play. Where do you place your loyalties? Where do you find affirmation and acknowledgement?
Again, it is a short transit and in all likelihood in the follow- up of the Virgo portion of the transit so don’t be overly concerned if you don’t come to some earth shattering revelation. In general terms, look at the roles you currently play and how you can improve them. Retrogrades are times to address problems but not to work them out. The real work comes once the retrograde is over, in this case five days from now.
 at this time (especially during the Taurus portion of the transit) but leave off radical changes until after the transit ends.
Continue with the retrograde as you have for the last few weeks. Hang tight as you only you have 5 more days. If insights to the ongoing retrograde and how to deal , please consult my article, Devil in the Details: Mercury Retrograde in Virgo/ Leo
Again, Mercury retrogrades are notorious for their affect upon devices of planning and communication. Telephones, computers, written message and contracts may experience problems during its passage. Try not to initiate new projects or make commitment wherever possible at this time. Keep your focus upon existing concerns instead. In light of this transit it might be in your best interest to get a second opinion or an outside observer to help review
Leo, Seek to determine who you are and what roles you play, for yourself and others.  Reconsidering your position and responsibility may ultimately be for the best. 

Aquarius, your commitments and expectation to others may require that you vet such matters with a new set of eyes.  It may be time to determine what might be best for then and what will be better for now.

Taurus and Scorpio, in the next five days,  some matter may present itself that will ask you to charge some aspect of  the role you play in the lives of others. It won’t easy but it should prove worthwhile for every moment you are willing to devote to it once the retrograde is over.

In the next few weeks get in touch with your humanity, both acknowledging your frailties and allowing for a new perspectives. Spend time in spiritual practices and creative endeavors during this period. Any creative projects should prove helpful and instructive at this time. You should dwell upon things that predate the retrograde and be mindful of starting any new works during this period.
