Jupiter in Leo – a guide for next year

by Luiza Azancot. Average Reading Time: almost 4 minutes.

Today we have a remarkable astrological event. Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system in its orbit around the Sun, changes sign, enters Leo leaving behind Cancer.


The length of Jupiter’s orbit is 12 years, therefore,  it spends a year in each sign. Jupiter symbolizes optimism, opportunities and even luck, but above all faith in the Universe and in ourselves, which allows us to go further within our chosen path. The key word for Jupiter is expansion.  It expands our experiences, our knowledge and our sphere of action. Jupiter rules the physical and intellectual journeys, higher education, philosophy, but also justice, moral values ​​and the dissemination of ideas. We can say that it is the planet of preachers, marketers and publishers.

Given these favorable energies, traditional astrology refers to Jupiter as the “great benefic”, but modern astrology, although agreeing with the interpretation of ease and the absence of barriers that Jupiter symbolizes, draws attention to its negative effects: exaggeration, overconfidence, arrogance, extravagance.

Most people like this idea of growth, to have more opportunities, to move forward.  But who benefits the most from the Jupiter in Leo year that begins today and ends August 11, 2015?

  • Those with the Sun in Leo

The period when Jupiter is near the degree of the natal Sun can be considered a top transit in terms of health, joy of living and opportunities to apply one’s creativity.

  •  Those with the Moon in Leo

The weeks when Jupiter is near the degree of the natal Moon bring a sense of well-being, expansive feelings towards t others, a desire to protect, not only to take care of children but also family in general. Relationships with women are facilitated, something men might feel pleased about but women can benefit also from female companionship.

  • Those with Mercury, Venus or Mars in Leo

During periods in which these planets are under a more direct influence of Jupiter, we have the opportunity to learn something new, plan ahead clearly (in the case of Mercury), to minimize the small turbulence of relationships or even see a new love affair emerge, appreciate the beauty that surrounds us, dress more elegantly (Venus), enjoy great physical energy and see the projects initiated at this time through to happy conclusion (Mars).

  •  Those who have the ascendant in Leo

Will feel good, with fine physical and mental health and so they will project positive energy, which makes everyday life easier.

And if you have no planets in Leo you will benefit from this transit too, because the house (s) in the sign of Leo will be blessed by Jupiter. Each house represents an area of ​​life, which will experience the possibility of happy developments. First identify on your chart which is the house or houses that are under the sign of Leo and find here  the corresponding area of life.

Enjoy the transit of Jupiter in Leo, use the energy to be creative, to explore ways of going to places where you have never been before. But caution! Under its influence it is easy to become “bloated” and conceit and arrogance create enemies.

NOTE: To facilitate identifying our most favorable weeks pick up in your natal chart and look up the degree in which your Leo planets are. Consult the Jupiter ephemeris below and note the week (s) Jupiter is closer to the natal planet considering two degrees on either side of the exact number. As an example, marked in green, are the most beneficial weeks for those who have a planet at 16 degree Leo.
