Jupiter in Leo
July 2014 – August 2015
Ingress 10:30am UT July 16th
by agent 12 Julija Simas
From the big waves created by Jupiter in Cancer, deep down security issues, our homeland security I like to call it, we are now urged to come out whether we like it or not as Jupiter moves out in Leo.What we are coming out to depends on what we’ve just experienced, dealt with, secured and nourished over the last year. We move out and move on to outwardly expand, show ourselves off, own the individual that resides within and roar with our own truth that is now firmly set in our hearts.
It’s a bit like the journey from the 4th house to the 5th house, when from the security of home and family we move out on our own to experience our own individuated life. It is similar for any planets moving from Cancer to Leo. Do you remember the journey of how you left home? The cusp of your own 5th house and the ruler of that 5th house cusp, will help tell that story. For now as Jupiter moves from Cancer to Leo, the Moon, ruler of Cancer gives way to the Sun, ruler of Leo. The focus moves from internal to external, unconscious to conscious , irrational to rational, dark to light, feeling to intuition. Where 0° Leo is placed in your own astrology charts will now replay and retell part of that story when you first left the family home. From the nurturing and security or control of your parents, to steeping out into the world to make it on your own, the heroes journey that began back then is about to take on the next great adventure. How was your leaving home story? Was it blessed, was it exciting, was it complicated, troubled, was it awful, did you leave for love or a lover? Were you kicked out? Not everything works the same way for all of us, as it all depends on our own circumstances, surroundings, environment and make up, but to recall the symbolism embedded in this time past will help you reflect on the encouragement you were given, (or not ) to thrive and be blessed as the individual on your own journey of life, by the people that were supposed to mean the most to you, your family. It may be years ago for many of us, but these stories from the 4th house to the 5th, tell of the nature of our grounding that influenced our confidence and trust and a belief in ourselves in the outside world forever more. Jupiter is that outside world, encouraging us to seek, find, learn and experience.
To find out more about this particular journey with Jupiter in Leo for the next year, we look at the Ingress chart (see chart), the timing of when Jupiter first moves to Leo. Jupiter’s 12 year cycle reminds us of 12 years ago and what was happening in a similar area of life for us at that time. 12 years ago Jupiter in Leo occured between August 1st 2002 through to August 27th 2003. Remembering that no cycle is ever the same, as other planets and their positions have moved on too, but reflecting on the last time will give us some fuel to understand how we will fare this time around. It’s not bells and whistles, fame and fortune, great joy, luck and blessings, for all of us. Jupiter transits can also be full of anxiety, stress and worry and completely overwhelming. For when we strive to live our truth a certain amount of confidence needs to be met too, doubly so with Jupiter in Leo. We will be put to the test in this department, yet we are given 12 months to work the opportunities and solutions this cycle brings.
The Ingress chart (right) shows a supportive Pisces Moon, in Jupiter’s own sign, along with Neptune and Chiron, yet during Jupiter’s time in Leo a series of inconjunct aspects 150°, from planets in Pisces will trigger ego motivated Leo, to engage like an egoless Pisces, pulling us back down to size, or to the never, never in whatever ventures we may take on. A creative quintile(72°) aspect between Uranus and Venus, always a bold and brave combination urge our creative charge onward, and as Leo represents a creative source, Venus and Uranus tell of the creative magic we will be adding into our lives, or asks us to! We are our own wizards and magic makers and Jupiter/Zeus was a master of it, master of magic and ritual. Saturn and Uranus are both about to do a turnaround in the next few days, July 20th and 23rd Saturn to station direct and Uranus to station retrograde as they inconjunct each other at 150° apart. This shows of a time ahead(the next year) of strengthening all that which has been worked on, strengthening the changes we have made and implemented and shows us there is much progress ahead, only IF, you have worked hard on implementing the changes necessary, otherwise what are you waiting for, change is never easy so get on with it! Mercury at 3 Cancer, just moving on from it’s recent retrograde phase says all about what we need to remember. What is burnt in our memory is here to stay, keep it conscious. The sign of Cancer is a bit like an elephant, it remembers everything, maybe not all the detail, but how it made you feel which is the unforgettable part. Perhaps a warning of which tribe to stick to and who to trust as we venture on, don’t make the same mistakes again and place your trust in anything fake or false. Leo and Jupiter are risk takers, seek adventure and excitement, all good, but heed the warnings or over investment, gambling and excess.
The Sun in this Ingress chart at 23 Cancer squares the nodal axis, challenges the journey ahead to be uplifting, inspiring moving us toward a more meaningful and purposeful existence, ditching ways ,outworn behaviours and even relationships, so there is freedom of movement to help us get there. The stellium of Mars, Vesta, Ceres at the North Node written about here, reiterates moving forward with lessons learned and being responsible for our actions, you can’t blame your predicament, where you are right now on anyone else, if there is one, but you could also be grateful and gracious to those that have supported , understood and helped you along the way. Value them, value yourself , as a precursor of getting Jupiter in Leo right, (Venus is in Gemini at this Ingress too) without being a total pain in the arse for all those around you, remember too, your shadow is always following you. Mars will enter Scorpio, July 26th(Fiery water)for 2 months, and Saturn by the end of the year, Dec 24th, when Fire signs will dominate and take charge, we will feel the momentum change over these next few weeks, so get ready and look forward, fire moves forward, not back!
Jupiter is big on lessons, promoting us to live out our truth and punishing us if we don’t keep our oath, lie or live under false pretences. If you were to make an Oath to Jupiter, what would it be?? It doesn’t seem so strange to make an oath or a promise to Jupiter, for as he was known as God long before the Christian God, Jupiter was the God of all God’s, known as Zeus to the ancient Greeks, Lord of the skies and heavens, King of Olympus. He was also the personification of the laws of nature, his weapon was a thunderbolt, his symbols the eagle and the oak tree. Carrying symbols that ignite and inspire and command, enable one to soar high, yet remaining as stable and grand as an oak.
Jupiter physically is the largest planet in our solar system and is known as a cosmic saviour and protector of our planet because of it’s enormous gravitational field, saving us from potential collisions with asteroids and comets. Jupiter is our own personal saviour too for what we hold as truth, how we carry our beliefs, our essence of faith and hope are all parts of our own sense of self protection, self preservation and longevity. Jupiter tells of our inner expansion and growth and how we take the outside world in, or at least make sense of it. It tells of our ability to make judgements, to live according to our own moral code, our sense of justice and what is right or wrong.
Together Jupiter in Leo urge us ignite our individuality and uniqueness, to spread warmth and love and do what we love, to shine, to be happy and live truly fulfilled lives showing off our true colours. Leo is a fixed fire sign, ruling the heart, ruled by the Sun. With Jupiter now here , we want to know what’s in your heart, what makes you shine, what makes you happy. The traits of the lion are pride, courage, playfulness and romance, when we put all these signs and symbols together we get quite a picture of spicing up your life, just remember the negative traits of Leo, egotistical, narcissistic, childlike, demanding. Jupiter’s transit through Leo will no doubt teach you a few more lessons about growing up in this department, so take note.
As the new cycle begins here are the main aspects to other planets during Jupiter’s time in Leo starting of with encouragement from the Sun.
Jul 24th Sun conjunct Jupiter - New synodic cycle of Jupiter / Sun begins -Jupiter becomes a morning star rising before the Sun about 10 days after this conjunction. With Jupiter as the scout planet rising before the Sun, things do get much more interesting and adventurous.
July 27th New Moon at 3°51″ Leo, with Jupiter at 2 Leo – For the last few decades and as Jupiter is only in Leo once every 12 years, this New Moon in Leo is the closest to Jupiter that I have looked for in about 50 years, so make the most of this New Moon, great time to make an oath to yourself, believe in yourself!
Aug 1st -7th - Jupiter 6° Leo Square Mars Scorpio 6 ° – - It’s a a battle between who holds the Truth, Me or You!
Sept 5th inconjunct – Pluto 11° Capricorn- How do you hold your truth? A test of holding and living your truth and any power issues that may surface, power comes from deep within,and knowing, nothing superficial will survive.
September 25th trine Uranus 15 °Aries – (inconjunct Chiron) – This is the spark of fire that’s been lacking, a combo thats speaks of invention and new sparks that take off and make something, careful it’s not a fire that goes out of control. This trine repeats over the next few months when Jupiter turns retrograde and then retraces his steps through Leo to trine Uranus again. Make big plans for these 3 trines. When Saturn enters Sagittarius a fire triad will be happening. The closest we will get to a Grand Fire Trine wlll be in March 2015 with Jupiter at 12 Leo, Saturn at 4 Sagittarius and Uranus at 16 Aries. An eclipse at the end of March and the last Pluto Uranus square will make this a most exciting month. Bring it on!
Oct /Nov – sextile North Node
8th December – Stations rx, at 22 Leo - Stay tuned for More on next year’s transits later!
