This month the big event is Jupiter, the planet of wisdom and abundance, is changing signs. On July 13 Jupiter will move from sensitive watery Cancer into Leo, a masculine fire sign that is heroic, confident and ready to take charge. Leo is ruled by the Sun, the planet that represents kings and leaders of all kinds. Jupiter, the minister or advisor, is friends with the Sun, therefore Jupiter likes to spend time in the Sun’s sign and tends to give good results here. You can imagine that Jupiter is spending a whole year (until August 11, 2016) in the king’s castle. Jupiter’s transit of Leo will awaken the fiery questing part of Jupiter. What does this mean for you? Well, the house where you have Leo from either your ascendent or your Moon is going to be highlighted this year, and you can expect this area of life to go through significant expansion and growth.
