Mercury enters Leo –  August 1, 2014

Mercury, the planet of communication and intellect enters the royal sign, Leo, on August 1, 2014. During this period, everyone is likely to feel “great”. This is the right time to set new goals as your focus will increase. This is the time to think big.

During this week, you will be able to put word to your feelings in a better manner. You will be more persuasive while Mercury transits through Leo. Confidence will be evident in your speech or written communications. However, Ganesha advises you to think twice before you commit anything. However, you may end up committing beyond your limits and might have to repent later.
Career and Business

This is going to be a busy week on the career front. You will be preoccupied with lots of thoughts, even if you are free physically. There will be scope for you getting involved in important meetings during this week. You will now have to prove your mettle one way or the other.


Do not say “no” to tight deadline targets as that's what is most likely to happen during this week. Be ready for multitasking too because that's what will be demanded from you. Ganesha feels that those in business can now expect a positive turn. Though profits may follow later, but it’s time to start executing big plans.
Love and Dating

With Venus in Cancer, it’s time to open your heart and share your feelings with your beloved. Express yourself with greater confidence. If your partner finds loyalty in your approach and if he/she finds you committed enough, the gates of heaven will open up for you. In short, during this week you have the chance to prove yourself as a true lover.


This is also a good time to start dating someone as the new moon has arrived in Leo. Someone from your near or distant past may also resurface during this week.
Relationships and Sex

Relations with parents are likely to be good. They will remain concerned about your problems and will help you find a way. This particular week is going to be important for your relations because Venus will be alone in Cancer. Generally, during such periods people feel like taking the decision of marriage as they have the strong desire to settle down.

As far as sex is concerned, this week, rather than the body, the heart is going to speak; it will not just be the physical need but something beyond or more than that.
Marriage and Children

On the marital front, what really matters is togetherness. Both of you will be contributing to the domestic environment jointly. The week is apt for taking decisions regarding the house or house decoration.


If you wish to add/alter some furniture at home, this week shall favour you. This is because your vision to beautify your home is going to be very powerful during this week.
Your partner and you together can make it look gorgeous. Children will be attention seeking or demanding during this week. Those willing to go ahead with medical treatment for childbirth will have the stars in their favour.
Personal life

It’s time to go slow with the personal goals because the more you try to push things, they will they get delayed. This is because Mars and Saturn are in Scorpio as per the Western astrology system. More energy will be spent on problem shooting rather than actual development of personal projects and goals. Those in the creative industry have the stars in their favour. But those looking forward to some financial goals shall have to wait for few more weeks.
Wealth, Property, Money and Finance

Financially, the week looks very satisfactory. You will be able to make the right use of your hard- earned money. Sun in Leo is the right time to invest money in government policies or PF / PPF etc.
Ganesha feels that during this week, you should not invest huge sums on things that provide you with comfort (though the desire to do so will be there), like buying a more comfortable sofa set or buying a big TV. Ganesha feels that during this week, you should seriously think about saving money.
