Of all the planets in astrology, Jupiter is the planet of good fortune, abundance and luck. Once a year, Jupiter changes sign, and on July 16th Jupiter moves out of Cancer and into Leo where it will stay until August 11th, 2015. Every 12 years you have a Jupiter return, which is a time when you will grow, learn new things, expand into areas you never thought you would, and it can be a very fortunate time.
If you are a Leo, this is likely to be a very positive year ahead for you especially if you are prepared to take more risks and move into the unknown. If you are a Fire sign: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, you will benefit from the energies of this transit. Make sure you push yourself out of your comfort zone and some exciting new opportunities will come your way. Find out what effect this transit will have on you!
