The planet Jupiter enters the star sign Leo marking a shift towards good fortune for everyone
Opportunities, good luck, and happiness are about to be released all around you, because Jupiter the planet of good fortune enters Leo the astrological sign of love, creativity, and grand gestures. So if things have felt a bit difficult or lacklustre of late, get ready for the sparkle to return to your life!
The planet Jupiter moves into Leo for the first time in 12 years on July 16. Jupiter is the king of the gods and is known as the planet of good fortune. Astrologically, the first half of 2014 has been difficult for many. Delays, inner reflection, and a focus on the home have dominated with Jupiter in Cancer, the sign of family, followed by further confusion with Mercury going retrograde.
But now, this radical shift in Jupiter fortune will see opportunities and passions coming to the fore. Jupiter opportunities are usually bright, bold and dynamic, but sometimes the king of the gods presents you with an opportunity that looks like a loss on first glance. So be sure to look twice at each situation that's on offer.
The end of a relationship spells the beginning of a better one.
Being made redundant can propel you into your dream career.
Be brave - Jupiter energy is about being courageous, so face your fears and conquer them.
Try something creative: painting, drawing, writing, photography, crafts, sewing, or interior design.
