We also have the New Moon in Leo coming up on Friday, August 14th.
Jupiter is the planet that symbolizes growth, expansion, abundance and generally brings positivity to our lives. He’s been in Leo since last summer and now it’s time to move on and bring optimism and wisdom to another area of our lives.
Whatever you want in life, this is going to be the beginning of putting practical plans in place so you can reach your aspirations. Be more open minded. The mind grows when you ask questions.
This is going to be an excellent time to learn through experience, so allow yourself to feel more open to the new. Get your hands dirty. This is when doing more and thinking more brings greater rewards. Procrastination is not going to get you where you want to go.
Putting greater structure and order into your routine is wise with Jupiter in Virgo. Think big, but also be decisive. I read an article last month where a study on successful people found that the main thing they each had in common was decisiveness. So if you’re a flip flopper and can’t make firm decisions, this is the year to practice being more efficient by making a smart choice instead of beating around the bush.
Now, with such a big move of a major planet, it signifies an ending and a new beginning. For some this can be exciting, with anticipation of what’s next. For others, it can be somewhat depressing as letting go of what was and moving on can have a sense of melancholy to it. A lot of people get comfortable with what is, and have fears of the unknown. You can remedy this by being focused, decisive and grounded to tap into that higher Virgo vibration. Meditation and yoga are great practices to find your center while also expanding your mind to new vistas.
Leaving fun loving and creative Leo and entering the more serious and practical Virgo, can take a bit of an adjustment.
It’s a great time to learn though. Once the Sun goes into Virgo at the end of summer we get in gear for work and school. With Jupiter entering Virgo now, learning will become quite suitable for many. Exploring books and stories of far off places, or traveling will also be on a lot more people’s minds. If you want to go to Hawaii, Paris, or the Bahamas, make a plan to get there and you can.
The sign of Virgo is also associated with worry, because it brings with it a lot of analytical energy. But of course, with Jupiter, you can use that analytical energy to make smart, informed decisions and acknowledge that all you are faced with is part of the learning process to become bigger and better.
This can be a great time to exercise, and if you’re into bodybuilding or improving muscle tone, great gains can be made. Of course it can work the other way too. If you have habits of enjoying big meals and indulgences, packing on the pounds can be easier now. But Virgo likes to be productive, so activity will help burn off the weight to keep your balance and health and wellness are priorities for Virgo.
Virgo likes to be detail oriented, while Jupiter is big picture ideas. A great way to take advantage of combining these energies is to keep your desk and your workspace clean and tidy. This will allow you to not be distracted by clutter so the mind can be open and clear.
There is also importance placed on using the most of your resources. By not being wasteful, you use what you have to the most expansive ways. This is a bit of a dichotomy though, which could be seen in how companies will likely continue to shrink package sizes to be more efficient but raise prices. Quality of food could also go down, as cheaper ingredients are used to extend foods. The counter reaction to this though will be that more people will likely explore and find new foods, or perhaps create their own gardens to have a more bountiful food source, and learn new skills such as making homemade bread.
I'll be sharing much more about Jupiter in Virgo. He’ll be there until September of next year, so there’s lots of time to explore this in much more detail as we grow forward into the future.
On Wednesday we have Mercury in Virgo across the sky from Neptune in Pisces. It’s a good time to face facts and see through the illusion, but it’s also a time to calm down an overly judgmental way of thinking to allow for a more compassionate stance. If you can remind yourself of the importance of serving others your very best, you can create more harmonious relationships. Helping others get their lives in order and come out of the clouds and vice versa can create healthy bonds. It's a great time to practice Karma yoga.
It’s officially a New Moon in Leo on Friday, August 14, 2015 at 10:53 a.m. ET.
This is when we each get a new appreciation of our personalities. Self-respect comes from owning who you are and being proud to express yourself authentically.
Venus retrograde in Leo is also very close by. This is a great time to love yourself and value yourself more fully. All your quirks of personality are what make you unique and awesome. It’s a fresh start for you to be more true to yourself.
Get your creative juices flowing. Pick up that paintbrush, sing to your heart’s content and explore new, fun fashion choices. With Venus retrograde it’s not a great time to make a permanent change to how you express yourself like a tattoo, or piercings (scars are permanent), or a nose job, but it’s a great time to explore various looks just for fun. Give yourself a budget for entertainment and pleasure so you can enjoy a little splurge.
Friday night would be a great time to go out on a date. Whether you’re single or attached, it’s the spirit of fun that matters. Express your love with an open heart.
Uranus is also reaching out to this New Moon in harmony, which further instills a sense of freedom to be authentic and true to yourself. You may be surprised by how fresh and exhilarating this New Moon is. Life is meant to be enjoyed. Be spontaneous and step forward with an attitude of liberation.
On the weekend, the Sun and Venus meet and your personality can shine bright. The more authentic you are, living from the heart, the more love you will be open to giving and receiving. It’s a great time to feel the joy of life radiate from your core.
Mercury and Pluto are in harmony as well on Saturday. Communications should go over well, especially with those in authority such as bosses or those higher up in your field. Interactions can create new business alliances or give you career ideas or approaches to working on new projects.
