Jupiter in Leo
July 16, 2014 – August 11, 2015
i’ve been asked by a few people of the leo persuasion if i could clue them into what is going on in their lives. let’s just say if life were a play, your character would be the emphasis right now for the better part of the next year. in other words, you are the star, so it is your time to shine. jupiter is in leo.
if you are not a leo [sun sign] or someone with prominent leo in their natal chart [ascendant or moon sign in leo, perhaps] and you are reading… THANK YOU, but you’re not the star of this production. you are playing either the supporting role or the antagonist. not the lead, sorry. we appreciate your audition and remember, there are NO SMALL PARTS (only small actors… and small insects). anyway…
your sun sign is leo. that means, from our vantage point on earth, the sun was transiting the leo constellation when you were born, shining a light on certain archetypal symbolism you may align with. the sun in astrology represents your soul’s essence, the conscious expression of your personality, and anything that fuels your existence in this incarnation. your ego and the development of your unique characteristics are under the jurisdiction of the sun. as a leo sun, you are at an advantage because leo is ruled by the sun, which means that these astrological energies are one in the same and reenforce each other. people with their sun in leo have a distinct awareness of self and take pride in everything they do as their choices are recreations of themselves.
with jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, currently in leo until next summer, your sense of being is expanded. it’s like someone is holding a magnifying glass up to you and your life is suddenly expanded. this isn’t a good thing or a bad thing, but jupiter is known as the planet of fortune and benevolence, so use this transit to your advantage. opportunities will be presented to you more often than usual, and all you have to do is stay true to yourself and listen to your heart. the more you trust in yourself, the more you will find yourself in the right places at the perfect times. leo sun sign people love applause and jupiter in your sign will deliver and then some. if you are an artist, prepare to benefit from your creations. even as you flourish, aspire to the mastery of your craft, as this jupiter-sun connection intends to guide your personal growth.
jupiter is known as the king of planets, so jupiter-influenced people must beware of peddling dogma and assuming a self-righteous disposition. everything revolves around the sun and leo the lion is known as the king of the jungle sun/leo-influenced people have a reputation of being self-centered. with jupiter in leo meeting up with your natal leo sun, be careful not to alienate people by being a know-it-all or denouncing other perspectives as wrong. there is nothing wrong with confidence in your beliefs, especially if they prove successful for you, but not everything works for everyone. try to be open to other people’s points of view and you just may learn something that could trigger the breakthrough you’ve been waiting for. it would also be helpful for you to establish some boundaries so that you don’t overextend yourself and wind up burnt out. we know you mean well and you’re up for any challenge, but don’t promise more than you can deliver if you want to be taken seriously when the “show” is over.
overall, while jupiter comes into close contact with your natal sun sign, you are enjoying yourself. to exacerbate the fulfillment you are experiencing, other people enjoy being around you because you radiate a warm richness that is inexplicably special. jupiter symbolizes long distance journeys, whether physical, mental, or spiritual, so definitely travel as much as possible and you may just get lucky. grant yourself the freedom to explore ideologies and religions that are foreign to you, as jupiter’s mission is to find the meaning of life by philosophizing its components until the bigger picture is discovered [maybe you’ll go back to school or study abroad?]. treasure is found in play, romance, and children, as these things not only symbolize but satisfy your leo sun sign. by embracing all that you are, you open the door for advancement, adventure, and spiritual abundance. don’t you just love a happy ending?
