For the next year, Jupiter will transit fixed fire sign Leo. What can we expect?

Whenever a planet transits a sign of the zodiac, the qualities associated with that sign are brought into sharp focus. Think of the planets as magnifying glasses that amplify the energy of whichever sign they currently occupy. As Jupiter moves through the signs, certain domains in our life become more prosperous or “lucky.”

Since last summer 2013, Jupiter transited cardinal water sign Cancer. With Jupiter in Cancer, you may have noticed boosts, bonuses or good fortune in the following areas if you felt balanced: heightened sensitivity/empathy, emotional strength, family matters, feminine energy, reconciliation with the past, caring for others and building of support systems. IF however you felt more imbalanced over the last year, you may have experienced an unusual increase in the following: clinginess, lethargy, melodrama, emotional fragility, gullibility, excessive doubt or fear.

Jupiter normally rules mutable fire sign Sagittarius so he is quite at home in fellow fire sign Leo. Fire is all-consuming and powerful. With Jupiter in a fire sign, we have greater drive to create our own opportunities. We are more inclined to dream big and take risks. Make this the year that you finally summon the confidence to do what you have always wanted, professionally or otherwise. Harness the power of the flame and BLAST OFF!

Expect to feel more courageous and outgoing. Just as fire grows and spreads rapidly, your social circle, professional life or interests may expand dramatically. With Jupiter in Leo, you will feel more generous with yourself and others, and not just in a material sense. This generosity may take the form of encouragement. Express sincere pride in your loved ones – your confidence in them is a marvelous, irreplaceable gift!

Leo is the fixed sign of the lion. Jupiter in Leo encourages us to embody the positive qualities of the lion. The balanced lion is dignified, affectionate, romantic and genuine. The lion’s greatest challenge is avoiding egotism and stubbornness. It is true that Leo often gets a bad rap for being self-centered. Channel your newfound Leo pride into admiration for others, healthy self-love and creative expression. The balanced lion loves nothing more than helping others – perhaps because this is the best way to improve the self!

Leo rules all things related to entertainment, children, romance, self-improvement and recreation. Expect your love life to kick up a notch – Leo energy is very sexually potent. Arts & crafts, sports, theater and film may figure prominently in the next year. Leo is notorious for loving the limelight and hamming it up too. You may interact with more children or improve relationships with children who are already in your life. If not, perhaps this is a time when you get in touch with your inner child. Expect to feel more playful. Your inner child will help you enjoy life more fully rather than question your happiness – why do we do that?! Leo is also prone to excess. Watch for splurging, giving away things that you really need or self-destructive behavior.

Jupiter was last in Leo from August 2002 to August 2003. According to CafeAstrology:

What we started during this period is now enjoying a Jupiter return, so that it might blossom, increase, or require adjustments in order to grow further.

I was born with Jupiter in Leo, so this year will be what is known as a Jupiter Return for me and everyone else with Jupiter in the sign of Leo. Check out this chart to see what sign Jupiter occupied on your day of birth.

  1. Wow Ren! This is great I you have the time I would love to know more.. Many changes going on right now :)

    1. JUPITER READING

      Fellow yoga instructor Sam was born with Jupiter in Libra in the 5th house.

      JUPITER IN LIBRA: Those born in the year when Jupiter transits Libra experience luck and prosperity particularly in the quality of their relationships with others – their loved ones are what truly make them feel “rich.” In Libra, Jupiter’s expansive, knowledge-seeking energy takes the form of spiritual learning through interaction with fellow humans. Libra is the sign of the scale – seeking balance. Good fortune comes through diplomacy and fair-mindedness. Jupiter in Libra is master of mediation and keeping the peace. When imbalanced, Jupiter in Libra may manifest as serious communication problems, crippling indecision or insecurity. The major challenge with Jupiter in Libra is avoiding the impulse to avoid! It is possible to be assertive and decisive and still be kind. Libra fears rocking the boat more than anything else. Charming and graceful presence. Loves partnerships.

      JUPITER IN THE 5TH HOUSE: Although this year is not a Jupiter Return for Sam, it makes sense that she is feeling the effects of Jupiter’s transit. The 5th house is ruled by Leo, and Jupiter transits to Leo today. With Jupiter in the 5th house, areas of her life that will always receive extra good fortune include all things ruled by Leo: children, romance, self-improvement and physical prowess. Sam should expect to feel even more generous than usual – and for others to be more generous with her. I’m sensing kids yoga classes might be in the cards? True talents lie in teaching abilities, patience and deep respect for learning and the learning process.

      THE TRANSIT, 2ND HOUSE: Jupiter is currently transiting the tail end of Sam’s 2nd house. Jupiter entered her 2nd house somewhere around last September. During the year that Jupiter transits the 2nd house, good fortune comes in the form of earning power and building professional value. When balanced, this year is both profitable and productive. Confidence and enthusiasm about earning a living are at a peak. This is a time when we cultivate our talents. Often this year brings major purchases or moving to a new location. Problems with money either get much worse or much better. Gifts, favors and bonuses may come out of nowhere. The more we believe ourselves worthy during this time, the more abundance flows into our lives. Sam’s Jupiter sign trines another planet in the 6th house, making this transit extremely favorable for professional success. Go get em, girl! Jupiter will enter your 3rd house in approximately 2 months – get back to me then! (:
