Mercury in Leo brings style and authority where you have a talent to see the big picture but may miss out the details. You will come across as very persuasive, almost a know-it-all but your desire to share knowledge with everyone allows you to promote your ideas and get your message across to the masses.
You will hold your opinions very dear and take pride in your idealistic beliefs showing passion and enthusiasm when presenting yourself creatively. You can however come over as a little arrogant and boastful as your ego is tied to your intellect, be sure not to take disagreements personally or let your natural detachment make you stubborn and oversensitive to criticism. You will be capable on an intellectual level, and have an especial desire for self-expression. With intellect and ego so closely tied, the ability to separate fact from fiction can be impaired, probably the best way to handle this position is to find self-expression in some creative field.

In social situations your warmth draws people to you and you will delight in developing other individuals’ potential.
