Lucky Stars 2014–2015, Look To Jupiter In Leo!
Dolce And Gabbana (SS 15), Show September 2014, Jupiter in Leo trine Uranus in Aries…
The Sun may be the bright star of our Solar System but Jupiter’s a pretty big deal too!
The largest of the planets, Jupiter is expansive and spreads messages through channels including the media, the press and publishing – so just as Mercury rules communication, Jupiter rules newspapers, magazines and the trends that are highlighted in them, making their way into our collective consciousness.
If like me you’re keenly following Jupiter’s transit through Leo then this will be a helpful guide to the planet’s movements throughout 2015.
I’ve also outlined what to expect during this time, including when the planet retrogrades (from the 2nd of January to the 9th April).
Yes Stargazers, Jupiter retrogrades…
Enjoy, and I hope Jupiter brings you luck in your life this year…

He may not look it but Jupiter is a super-sized planet, the largest in our solar system and befittingly it’s the planet representing growth, expansion and abundance.
It’s also the planet of higher learning, greater knowledge, spirituality and ‘the journey’.
Jupiter rules over many things that are off-shoots of these, including religion, universities, foreign affairs, long distance travel etc. It even rules over gambling and the ‘largeness’ of its character can be prone to exaggeration, ‘blowing up’ or being overly optimistic with blind faith…
The constellation Leo is ruled by the Sun and has an affinity with royalty, theatre, gold, and with creativity, recreation and play, too.
As the only sign that’s ruled by the Sun it’s most associated with self-expression, and our ego.

What Does Jupiter In Leo Mean For Me? Your Horoscope For 2014–2015…
Jupiter’s transit means different things to different people, depending on what area of your personal chart this planet touches.
A hint can be gleaned by looking at it’s last transit – the last time Jupiter rolled around was 2002-2003.
Think back to that time and reflect on the changes that year bought – what was going on? What grew or what adventure was embarked upon?
Generally Jupiter is thought to bring luck and expansion to the place in your chart that it touches, you can think of it very generally by working out the house it transits by your Sun Sign but also your Rising Sign too.
Read both and see which resonates with you…

Capricorn Or Capricorn Rising – Jupiter’s Transiting Your 8th House

Jupiter In Leo Trends
One way to honour Jupiter in Leo is to notice those things around you that speak of Leo, as they could be highlighted even more now – watch the universe in action!
Because the largest planet in our Solar System governs expansion it rules over anything that spreads the word, including publishing. A wonderful way to make the most of Jupiter’s transit is to watch the trends, keep track of what appears in press, papers and magazines. Keep your peepers peeled for signs over the next 18 months and you’ll be sure to spot more! For example, Royalty in the press (Andrew!), beauty features with GOLD as the signature colour, crowns, crests and lots of baroque touches in fashion, like those seen at Valentino and Dolce and Gabbana…
You can also mark the passing of Jupiter through Leo with lots of leonine touches in what you wear – it might bring you extra blessings…
Now’s the time to cultivate the midas touch about your fashion as GOLD looks phenomenal this year. The best colour for Leo natives are burnt orange, regal purple tones and their best colour – gold… If this hue’s not usually you but you’re curious give it a try!

Big hair is totally a Leo thang, in fact, the Leo head of hair is their crowning glory! They’re proud of their mane and now that Jupiter’s in Leo you should be too – read more and see the stars that have a beehive or more in Leo, The Mane Attraction.
Use the energy of Jupiter to inspire your travels and visit places and spaces ruled by the Lion, including the city of Rome, Bath, Chicago, L.A. and Singapore. Italy, Sicily, Bhutan, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Maldives are countries that are Leo ruled too… See more in Astrology And Places.
With Michael Kors, Chanel and YSL among the big names you don’t need an excuse to wear a Leo label! Some of the most luxurious were founded by Leo’s – surprised?
Wear a Leo label and you could be more creative, and your sense of showmanship may thrive too… (Any excuse…) See the Leo Fashion Designers, here.
Leo loves not-so-little luxuries – think ‘bling’!
This year if you’re having a party or event why not go OTT? Opulence and extravagance might go down brilliantly if you style it right. You can dare to be a little brash, this isn’t Capricorn we’re dealing with! Leo doesn’t mind if it’s gold paint as long as it’s got a gilded shine… Bring on the ferrero rocher!
Worship The Sun
Leo is a lounge lizard when the sun shines, bask in its rays and get your vitamin D fix this year. Or if you’re fair of face simply use sun prints and sunflowers around you! Perhaps as a motif around the home – bring cheer in – and theatre! You can also consider decorating with leopard print, and lion statues.
Did you know Jupiter Retrogrades?
That’s right Stargazer, the planet of luck and expansion goes back and forth, just like Mercury, Venus and other planets on our Solar System.
From the 2nd of January 2015 the planet will retrograde, turning direct again on the 9th April.
During the Jupiter retrograde period it’s a good time to revise, revisit and rethink. It’s very much a time when the Jupitarian energies that once were propelling you forth are on slow-mo, it’s a great time to get a clear perspective on matters that are being touched by Jupiter to see that you’re on-track (refer to the guide above to see which house Jupiter is transiting by sign).
Jupiter’s in Leo until the 11th August 2015, the large planet then passes through Virgo through mid-August 2016.
