Jupiter is about to change signs. On July 16th, 2014, the planet of optimism will enter Leo, giving the words “Love me” a non-negotiable edge. Leo is about pride and pure self-expression, but this sign also craves the sparkle of new romance and indulgent play. Mix in Jupiter’s buoyancy, and you’ll have a bonfire of romantic opportunity. This could be the time to take a romantic risk (Leo rules gambling), demand the best for yourself in a relationship, or play the field. This transit will encourage people to be themselves … unapologetically. No one will want to be told what they can’t have. Jupiter will be in Leo until August 11th, 2015; read on to see how it will impact the Fixed signs. Your relationships will most likely be impacted if your Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, ruler of your 7th House, or 5th/7th Houses are in a Fixed sign.
This transit will be your moment to shine. Putting aside the fact that almost every moment is your moment, Jupiter will fuel your abundant drive for recognition and fun. Single or not, you’ll be noticed more than usual (which is saying something) so use the bigger spotlight wisely. Your sense of entitlement will increase dramatically, and if an existing relationship is not giving you what you want, you may be tempted to look elsewhere. This is when you’ll need perspective; is your partner truly not doing it for you, or does your relationship simply require a re-boot? You’ll have the power to bring generosity and fun to your union, and that could be all that’s needed. But if you’re not being appreciated for who you are and it’s time to move on, Jupiter will ensure that you have plenty of admirers. Just make sure you’re not blinded by the thrill of “landing” someone who’s already taken (your need for drama will also be increased). If you’re single, this transit can certainly improve your chances of meeting someone, because few will be able to resist the aggressive charm of you, with Jupiter’s added glow of assurance.
Jupiter will be opposing your sign, which means your natural inclination for freedom will be pumped up. You may be more set than usual on doing your own thing, which can disrupt an existing relationship. Or, this transit might simply inject a new sense of adventure into your union. Single Aquarians may experience increased romantic opportunities, but it all depends on how you spin this energy. It will feel better than ever to dance to your own beat, or wander off down your own path. This could manifest as amplified joy in your own company, which can be very appealing to others. Or, you may see no reason to invite anyone else along for the ride. Your personal ideals will be pushed to new heights, and much depends on how you feel about people in general. If you’re currently the disillusioned outsider, Jupiter’s influence might take some of that edge off. That could be all that’s needed to let someone in.
Get ready to indulge. Jupiter will be squaring your sign, and a square is a tense aspect. Tension from the planet of “more” will increase your desire for expansion. Whether you’re single or attached, amplified sensuality can make romance rich and pleasurable. While you’re at it, your routines may get shaken up. This could breath new life into an existing relationship, or put you in the path of someone new. But there’s always a caution about overdoing it with squares from Jupiter. Watch that your cravings don’t overwhelm your pocketbook or responsibilities. Use a bit of restraint when spending money on your beloved, and remember to tend to other areas outside the bedroom. Also, consider what has value for you during this transit. Jupiter will make you very aware of what else you could have. Whether you’re looking for love, or looking to expand your existing relationship, take note of what or whom you’re adding. Jupiter can make almost anything seem like a good idea, so ask yourself if you’ll be increasing something of value, or if you’ll be adding glaze to a cake that’s already covered in icing.
Is it possible to become addicted to optimism? Jupiter will square your sign, inflating the intensity of your purpose. There will be times when you just know you’re doing what has to be done, and it will feel good. This can create a fanatical push for love or power. It depends on what or who your target is, and how you handle your increased assurance. If you’re single, you may pursue someone as if your life depends on it. To you, it will feel like a joyous mission. To them, it may feel incredibly sexy or scary. Keep in mind that your energy can inspire love, obsession or fear in others, and Jupiter will amplify this. In an existing relationship, you may want to dive deeper, or become fixated on an issue. Again, consider the other person; how important is the issue, and is your partner on the same page? Jupiter does expand, but in your case it may intensify an obsession (thus narrowing your field of vision) rather than opening up your perspective.
