Jupiter enters Leo on July 16th. You can read about the overall impact of this in the Jupiter in Leo post. This is taken from the July 2014 Horoscope for each sign (reminder: general horoscopes are always meant for entertainment purposes only):
For Aries, with Jupiter in Leo, you embark on a year of fun. Leo rules your fun sector, the sector that governs what you like to do for fun, when you have time off and want to play and goof off. You can find that you try to take more time off of work over the next year, and want to spend more time engaging in hobbies and enjoying yourself. You can take up lots of new hobbies or one really important one. This can be a good period to take an existing hobby and turn it into something beneficial, especially financially. Your creative side can take over, and you want to be more artistic. You want to focus on the fun times, spend your time laughing and cracking jokes, and don’t want to take anything too seriously. You’re also more comfortable in the spotlight, and crave more attention from people. If you have children, this is a great period for them, and you can improve your relationship with them. If you want children, you have a greater chance of having one, and generally, you can spend more time with children over the next year. If single, you can meet lots of potential mates, and you spend your time dating and flirting, playing coy, and while you could fall in love, it’s the playful kind. If you’re in a relationship, you can try to make it feel like it did when you first met, and fall in love with them all over again. Jupiter in Leo should be a nice time for you, Aries, so enjoy it!
For Taurus, with Jupiter in Leo, you put less emphasis on your mind and more on your emotions. You’re not usually the most emotional sign in the Zodiac, Taurus, but you can get better in touch with your emotional self over the next year. You won’t be an emotional train wreck or anything like that, but you’ll be able to understand your feelings and allow yourself to emote more freely. Being in tune with your feelings could even prove to be beneficial to you. You can strengthen your inner foundation, and become even more stable and secure. Leo governs your home and family sector, so you can also experience a more positive year with your home and family. Many of you may feel that your home is much too small, and will either move or try to make your space seem bigger by knocking down walls, rearranging furniture, or clearing the clutter. The bigger your home feels, the better you feel. With your family, you can strengthen ties with them, or reconnect with a relative. You can spend more time with them, and you enjoy their company more. Your family could also be a source of opportunity for you, and they can introduce you to new people or come up with new ideas that you should pursue. They give you sage advice, and you appreciate their wisdom. Your family could expand, and you see relatives get married or have children. Generally, you want to stay within your comfort zone over the next year, and prefer to go the traditional route. No need to be unconventional!
For Gemini, with Jupiter in Leo, you put more emphasis on your mind over the next year. It moves a little faster, you’re more enthusiastic about your ideas, and you become interested in lots of new things. This is a good year to expand your mind through learning, and some of you can go back to school. Your ideas seem bigger than they usually are, and your mind can be your best attribute over the next year. Let your mind get you out of any rut you’re stuck in, or solve whatever problem you’re faced with. You can begin a big project, especially something with writing or speaking, and this is an excellent period for you if you’re a writer of some sort. You can also get along better with young people, so it’s a good time if you’re a teacher as well. Technology works in your favor, and you could do work using new technology, or you just like technology more and get more gadgets. You’re busier in your daily life, filling up your schedule as much as you can, and you want to keep busy with lots of little projects and tasks. When you don’t have enough to do, your mind wanders and you can become anxious. While Jupiter is in Leo, you do have less of a chance of suffering bouts of depression because you’re more focused on the positives, naturally more optimistic about life in general. You choose to see the best in people and situations, and it keeps you from getting too down about anything.
For Cancer, with Jupiter in Leo, you enter a year of financial reward. Leo rules your money sector, and when Jupiter is in this sector, you usually have a year of increased financial opportunities. You can get a raise or better paying job, start a second job, turn a hobby into a money-making venture, or find other ways to get more money. The harder you work for it, the more you’ll get. You can also redo your budget and find more wiggle room, and increase your finances that way. Make sure you don’t just spend every extra penny you get though, because that will be the first thing you want to do, but resist! Pretty material objects are nice, but you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to improve your financial life, or you’ll pay the piper later. You can also do things to strengthen your security and bring more stability into your life while Jupiter is in Leo. You feel that you don’t need to rock the boat so much right now, and the safer and more secure you feel, the better off you are. You may feel more confident than usual, sure of yourself and of your decisions, and you stick to what you decide you want. You could seem more stubborn, but it works in your favor under this influence.
For Leo, with Jupiter in Leo, you enter a new 12 year cycle of your life. With Jupiter in your sign, you can see more opportunities to expand your life in new ways, and do things you weren’t sure you could do. While Jupiter was in Cancer, you preferred to do things in the shadows and keep to the background, plotting and planning your next moves without anyone noticing. Now, you come out into the spotlight, and want the whole world to see what you’ve been up to and give you credit or praise for it. You’re more comfortable in the spotlight, and are more willing to chase after what you want. When you work for something, you’re more likely to see a positive outcome now. You feel good about yourself, have a positive outlook on life, and your optimistic attitude will help you keep going, no matter what is happening in your life. Whenever you’re presented with new opportunities, grab them and run! Let yourself have some new experiences, and start going down a whole new road for your life. This can also be a good time to lose weight, if you want/need to, though it you can also gain weight if you’re not careful, so try not to let your sweet tooth take over. Mostly, this is a great influence for you, Leo, so make the most of it!
For Virgo, with Jupiter in Leo, you enter a year where you spend more time in the background. It’s not only where you feel most comfortable, but also where you have the most opportunities. You can do work where other people get the credit, or other people to do the presenting, but you stay out of the spotlight for now. You keep what you’re working on to yourself, knowing that now isn’t the right time to shout it from the rooftops. Working quietly, planning carefully, being methodical - these are the things that will benefit you most right now. You’re at the end of a 12 year cycle with Jupiter, and now is when you can tie up loose ends and let go of what you no longer need. Clearing out the baggage and junk you’ve accumulated over the last 12 years is crucial right now, because you have an easier time letting go and don’t feel so emotionally attached to things you shouldn’t have, and because you need to ready yourself for when Jupiter enters your sign next year and you start a new cycle. This is an important year, though it may not seem like it as you’re going through it, but down the road, when you’re looking back, you’ll realize that was the case. Release, rest, and rejuvenate yourself as you get ready and prepare.
For Libra, with Jupiter in Leo, you feel more positive about your dreams. You look toward your future with an optimistic attitude, and you feel there isn’t anything that you can’t do. You come up with big ideas for what you want your future to look like, and no one can convince you that it can’t be done. You can focus on one big dream in particular, and make strides over the next year to achieve this dream. Some of you may find yourself in the public eye, before groups of people regularly, or getting lots of attention. You can meet lots of new people and make lots of new friends, though they may not be serious friends. The friendships you make now tend to be casual, but the connections are extremely helpful as you grow your network. You can join new groups and take on important roles within a group. You feel more comfortable with your friends and groups, and your friends and the groups you belong to can be a source of luck and help you with problems. You’re also more comfortable going outside of your comfort zone and trying things out that are totally different from what you’d normally do. You’re open to unconventional people, unique ideas, and unusual solutions to problems. There’s so much out there for you to experiment with, and this is your time to do just that.
For Scorpio, with Jupiter in Leo, you enter a period that’s usually quite beneficial to you professionally. You can accomplish more in your career, with the professional goals that you have, and make great strides with your work. You can be recognized for work that you’ve done, and rewarded for it. You can get closer to the dream job you want to have, or actually get it. You can be promoted or offered the job of a lifetime. Of course, none of this will materialize out of thin air - you have to put in some effort. But with Jupiter, the effort you have to put in isn’t usually as much as it is with the other planets, and you can enjoy the effort more. You want to focus on your career and the goals you have, and you can work carefully, methodically, and create plans for what you want that are realistic and attainable. You’re positive about your career and goals, and feel that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. This is also a good year for you to work on your life path, and make sure you’re going in the right direction. If you feel you aren’t, you can change your course with greater ease and less drama. If you feel you are, you can get further along that path, and build a great foundation for your future.
For Sagittarius, with Jupiter in Leo, you embark on a new year that is fun and gives you the chance to embrace being yourself. You can expand your life in new ways, ways you’ve been dreaming of for some time, and have new experiences that open you up in a ways you didn’t think of. It’s a great time for travel, going back to school, and pushing the boundaries of your life further apart so you have greater freedom to roam as you please. Nothing makes a Sagittarian happier than being free to run, and you have the chance to make that possible now. You can come up with big plans and ideas, and you’re extremely optimistic and happy-go-lucky. You want to smile and laugh, and don’t want to take anything in life too seriously. Life is meant to be lived happily, and you look at the brighter side of every situation and person. You engage in lively debates, are friendly and sociable, and have a natural optimism that attracts people to you. You’re hard to pin down though, especially now, as you want to run as much as you can. You’re not running *from* anything, but just enjoying the act of running itself and the feeling of freedom that comes with it. Break through the chains that bind you, take the biggest breath you’ve ever taken, and live!
For Capricorn, with Jupiter in Leo, you begin a year where you can focus on the deeper issues, the things you usually shove away deep inside of yourself because you don’t want to face them. You can face them now, and they don’t seem so scary, like a monster hiding in your closet. You bring that monster out into the light and find it’s just an old stuffed animal. You know there are some things that you need to face, and now is as good of a time as any. Jupiter here makes it easier for you, less overwhelming, and you see the positives to doing so, and can make good things happen for you by doing so. You can try to make a transformation of yourself this year, or of something in your life. You can buy an old house and restore it t its former glory, or become interested in salvaging old pieces of furniture or collectibles. Whatever happens to you over the next year, you have a greater ability to bounce back strong and fast, so anyone who counts you out will be in for a big surprise. This is also a good year to do work that’s beneficial to you and someone else, and this can be a time where you have work projects with a business partner, or you do work for someone else that can help you both.
For Aquarius, with Jupiter in Leo, the next year is a great year for your relationships. You have an easier time getting along with people, committing yourself to people and projects, and being close with your loved ones. You’re not the most emotional sign out there, Aquarius, and can be quite distant in your relationships, but you’re willing to be closer now, and it doesn’t take much effort. Some of you can embark on new relationships, romantic partnerships, personal, or business. You want to have someone by your side, and when you do have a partner, you can bring more opportunities into your life, have new experiences, and face more of life’s challenges with greater ease. You’re also concerned with equality, playing fair, and treating everyone with respect, and this makes you easier to get along with. You’re willing to make compromises and see other people’s point-of-view, and could find that making a compromise is the best option for you in most circumstances. You crave more balance in your life, and you want to feel as though you’re giving equal time to everyone and every aspect of your life. The more out of balance you feel, the harder it is for you to do anything properly or feel like you have any opportunities. Strike a balance, and doors open for you and you feel like the world is wide open for you.
For Pisces, with Jupiter in Leo, this is a great year for your work. Leo governs your work sector, and you can make great strides with your work. You can take on a big work project that gets you noticed. You can be offered a fantastic new job, or get several new job opportunities. Some of you may feel like you’re being held back and stifled where you’re currently working, and decide it’s time to move on to something else. You want your work space to be expansive and give you room to breathe, and you get along better with your coworkers. Leo also governs your health sector. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, so he expands whatever he touches, so if you’re naturally lazy with your health, you can become even lazier, and if you’re naturally concerned about your health, you can become a health nut. Generally, this is a good time to work on improving your lifestyle and making healthier choices in your daily life. Do that, and you’ll see the rewards tenfold. If you’re lazy about it, this transit does have the tendency to make you put on weight. You usually don’t see health problems get worse during this time from bad behavior (except for perhaps diabetes), but you’ll pay for it when Jupiter isn’t here and can’t protect you anymore, so make the most of his good vibes.
