Jupiter blazes into Leo on July 16th, in a shower of sparkles and gold dust.
Jupiter increases whatever it touches. Leo is a big sign; pride, drama, attention, performance, self-expression, play. Expect more of the showy stuff. This will not be a quiet transit.
For you, this means Leo (in your chart) will be lit up. This is your area of opportunity until August 11th, 2015 (when Jupiter exits Leo). By now, most of you know that Jupiter promises much but doesn't always deliver. Possibilities are expanded, but it's up to you to work with them. Behind Leo's attention-getting tactics is the basic urge for recognition. That's what this transit will be about; increasing recognition from others. What that recognition is for will depend on the natal house that Leo occupies. Everyone can benefit from this transit, not just those with planets/angles in Leo. Everyone can tap into the opportunities that Jupiter brings.
For those of you feeling low on motivation or pride, this transit can be helpful. Jupiter will spotlight your special talent/hope/creative urge. For others who are accustomed to living life up *here* in a blaze of drama, Jupiter will increase that as well. Jupiter inflates existing issues, so there's a probability of demanding drama kings and queens running rampant. This is when it pays to remember that a poorly handled Jupiter transit can crash just as badly as the trippiest Neptune fantasy.
The best use of this transit will be to strut your stuff while focusing on Leo's evolved side.
- personal pride, not arrogance
- generosity, not self-absorption
- creativity, not drama
- self-expression, not self-inflation
- playfulness, not immaturity
The highest expression of Leo is solid gold dedication to what or whom is loved (Leo loves with all its heart). The lowest expression is gold plated exhibitionism rooted in desperate neediness. Jupiter in Leo will tempt some people with flashy distractions, but always remember Leo's core value: pride in self. Stick with that and you can't go wrong.
