A week to be reckoned with; tidal waves and volcanoes.

It's been a little while since I wrote a piece (apologies there has been too much going on) but the configuration for this forthcoming Full Moon inspired me to action. Possibly because it falls close enough to my North Node (spiritual path) in my 3rd house of communication to have an impact prior to it's culmination.

Much of the past few months have been riddled with the proximity of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. These two heavy-weights have been causing havoc in the lives of those with planets between around 18-23 degree Capricorn and in aspect.

Let me touch on this first. For those of you who only know your Sun signs, you will definitely have been affected by this Saturn-Pluto cohort if you were born between; 9th to 14th January, 9th to 14th April, 10th to 16th July and 11th to 17th October. This means you have definitely been affected, many many others will have been too, but I would have to look at the rest of your chart to ascertain.

{if you would like me to look at how this affects your chart, then you can book a focussed reading with me here: https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/Waxyjo/tools/listings/714353259 }
The main experience of these two planets together is; great upheaval, your life being subject to unavoidable change and sometimes difficulty. I have seen the impact upon some people's health, due to increased stress levels, there have been financial implications too, and dips in the overall sense of well-being experienced. Due to this affecting so many people, the domino effect is that we are all aware of a lower overall energy surrounding us at the moment and vitality is lower than usual.

Fortunately Jupiter in Sagittarius is keeping up the spirits in some ways and will be more impactful again from mid-August onwards.

So, in terms of this Full Moon which will be at 9:30am (UK time), on Monday 17th June, the added energy of Mercury, Mars and the transiting node making an aspect to the Saturn-Pluto conjunct will lead to a very intense time indeed.

To explain. Mercury rules communication, wherever Mercury falls in our birthchart will denote how we communicate, in which ways we excel or flounder and it can also tell us about our voice, whether we have a gift for singing or writing, or intuition. A weak Mercury may be prone to gossip, talking too much or the inability to express oneself at all, where as a well developed Mercury may be an award winning writer, a charismatic speak or a beautiful singer.

On the other hand, Mars rules our physical energy. We all know that Mars is the archetypal masculine symbol and that it rules passion, sex, testosterone and drive. Along with this it is also linked to our physical vitality and therefore our health, and where it falls in our chart will show how strong, sporty, resilient, energetic and assertive we are. A poorly integrated Mars can be a very angry person, whereas a well used Mars may be a champion sports person.

Consider these two planets together in the home, loving, family oriented sign of Cancer and we can see a picture beginning to build. Certainly there will be a lot more to talk about whilst these two are together between Sunday 16th June and Thursday 20th June. There may be a lot of upfront dialogues, and issues raised which have been swept under the metaphorical carpet for a while. The closest people to you are the ones who can hurt you the most and at this time words may very well be spoken out of turn impulsively and emotionally.

Try to think before you speak but, also trust what you feel. If there are important thing left unsaid, it is healthier for all parties if these areas are aired. After all the impact of ones feelings towards their closest collaborates can be felt, whether the issue has been discussed or not. It is far more productive to be honest and open, providing the ability to move forwards and let go, than it is to hold onto pain, grudges or allow small irritations build into large defenses. (Pearls are decidedly out of fashion as it goes).

The nodes being in the mix with all this does imply that there will be some important decisions made globally this week. Mercury and Mars together can be feisty and at times, ferocious, but with their meet up being in opposition to that heavy, life-changing Saturn-Pluto conjunction I was talking about, gravitas and impact start to become more likely.

On a basic political view, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn are there to shake things up, for better or for worse and mostly with the latter in mind first. In history humans have generally resisted change without upheaval and hardship figuring in the picture to start to rouse up the lethargy of the security-seeking, changing-fearing, everyday person. Most people don't like to rock the boat and hence, they will not try to make a difference until the boat capsizes. We've seen this time and time and again, and unfortunately the human race hasn't evolved beyond this basic. Obviously this unfortunately means that, even in this day when we have all the knowledge and information available to us to make big changes, usually big events have to occur before action is taken.

I'm not saying anything momentous is going to happen this week, but I am saying that events that begin this week may lead to much bigger scenarios occurring further down the line. Saturn and Pluto only actually link up exactly once, and that will be on 12th/13th January 2020. There will be a link with what happens around this time, with outcomes that occur then.

A more political astrologer may make more definitive predictions here. As I've mentioned before, the last time Saturn and Pluto were together in Capricorn, was when Henry VIII made a treaty to unify Europe and reduce the attacks between neighbouring countries! (See Treaty of London 1518) I find it wonderfully ironic that the UK are trying to break away from Europe, under the same configuration that the Tudors used for unification. Have we evolved at all?

The pinnacle day to look out for this week is actually Thursday 20th June, as Mars opposite Pluto will pull the most punches; hopefully not literally. This is the most aggressive combination of planets and the most explosive. On a simple domestic level this is a day to be cautious; remember to turn the gas off, drive carefully, try to avoid road rage and confrontation, as things are so much more likely to escalate. Natural disasters such as earthquakes, volcanoes and tornadoes are more likely too, so it's perhaps not the week to take a day trip to Vesuvius.

On the plus side Mars and Pluto together can move mountains with focus, and create amazing passion when two people work together in their energies, rather than opposing forces. This can be a healing time too when knowledge and awareness are used to create closeness, rather than chasms.

Disputes can happen in scenarios where there is a lack of balance between work and home also, as the featured signs of Cancer (home, family, nurture, domesticity) and Capricorn (work, career, ambition, focus) always are at odds a little bit on this one.

The actual Full Moon itself is merely a ripple in a week of high tides, but deserves a mention, as we all feel the intensity build up of a full moon from time to time. It will be at 25 degrees Sagittarius and so felt most by this who were born with their Sun near or opposite this (birth dates; 16th to 20th December and 15th to 19th June)

It throws a loose nod to the building square between Jupiter and Neptune which may throw a spiritual caste over us all and help to mitigate stress and tension. Although, so far it seems that Jupiter (excess, expansion, fun and joy) has only been bringing the more damp tendencies of Neptune (transcendence, higher love, soulfulness and ruler of the sea) to the fore; via constant rain.

The energy of the full moon should be quite positive and upbeat overall, and it is followed by Eros moving into Libra which will bring passion, and romance back where pickiness and criticism have been a little too prescient in recent weeks.

Try to let of steam this weekend and enjoy the upbeat, exploratory, joviality of the full moon in Sagittarius, and allow tensions to be released in a good way. It may help to reduce the possibilities of tensions and conflicts later in the week.

Happy Solstice everyone! May it be peaceful, loving and passionate.

Astrology and the pursuit of love

Deep down most of us are searching for love, even the most unromantic of us end up seeking a partner, somebody to share our lives with. On the spiritual side we are told that, 'love is all there is' and so perhaps seeking love is not what life is about at all?

Traditionally in the astrological chart; Venus is known as the love planet. Always denoted to represent how we experience and express loved, based on its position in our charts; the simplest way to look at our relationship potential and compatibility has always been to regard the position of Venus.

In the older astrological teachings from say the Victorian era and prior; Venus was the only planet associated with love and in those days before; Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Chiron etc. were known about it worked well. Life was more simple then, more about survival and intrinsically love had to be bound up with ones financial prospects and trust particularly for women who were less able to survive without a man unless independently wealthy.

It's interesting to observe how much things have changed over a couple of hundred years, and how, interestingly the discoveries of additional planets represent these changes.

Neptune was discovered in 1846 and has always been linked to photography, film, music and higher love. It's interesting to consider that it was during this period that the in the UK the Queen Victoria was seen to be in a highly romantic relationship with her husband and that this was the first time a monarch, or figure head was recognised to be focused on their love relationship also.

In fact is during this period that the first onslaught of paparazzi as we know it now, began to develop. The media was just beginning to become more visual and due to the industrial revolution newspapers could be printed daily and started to be concerned more with gossip and aspirational lifestyles. Victoria was one of the first fashion icons and was the forerunner of many trends we still follow now.

Neptune has never been linked to fashion as such, and the industrial revolution has always been more connected to Uranus, discovered 50 or so years earlier, but Neptune's capacity to dream, aspire and imagine ones ideals was intrinsically affected by the new media world of the mid-19th century.

We all know now that we can manifest our 'dreams' by using imagination, clear focus, imagery and then gratitude. This entire process is the realm of positive Neptune and is concerned with using the love that is all around us, as Universal power. Harnessing the beauty that exists to help co-ordinate our more ideal life paths.

As stated Neptune isn't so much concerned with the here and now; rather with what could and can. For the deep dark vibrant truths we tend to, as astrologers, look to Pluto.

Discovered in 1930 Pluto has been linked to splitting the atom and deep transformation. Interestingly, it was around this time that the analogue computer was invented, along with the jet engine and frozen food. All inventions that have gradually but completely altered the way we live in the modern world. Pluto has always been about great transformations; for better and for worse and the fact that without recognition of our deepest darkest truths we will only live in fear of them.

The discovery of Pluto is perfectly linked to the development of psychology, and studies of the subconscious, psyche and super-conscious becoming mainstream concepts which became integrated into teachings and therapies which are still used today.

The main precept of Pluto, or at least how best to deal with the dark fears that it can bring up for all of us, is to learn how to 'let go'. Most of us will be familiar with areas of our personalities which are controlling, and static. We all have a tendency, in the modern world, to become attached to people and things. Partly, because our basic needs are fulfilled and so the pursuit of happiness and contentment can become a more primary focus and also in part because we've mostly been encouraged to build our lives out of bricks; both physically and metaphorically.

The need to let go probably wasn't a necessity prior to 1930, in quite the way it is now. Certainly in the westernised class system with ultra traditional values, there weren't many options available. If one was wealthy then duties were clear, concise and unavoidable and if poor, then loss was so inevitable it had to be accepted as a part of normal life.

It's therefore interesting to consider how the Wall Street Crash had such an effect on the economy that the structures of the class system and concepts of who was rich and who was poor began to change forever and it all happened at around the same time that Pluto was discovered. In this case, “what goes down, must {eventually}go back up.”

To go back to the main preface of this article. What does any of this have to do with love?

Well, to consider that 'love is all there is', surely the only way to access true love is by letting go?

Pluto is very much involved in relationship astrology. As well as everything else it also represents sex, obsession, deep transformative connections and will also feature between the charts of soulmates.

Due to the deeply compulsive qualities of Pluto it can become all too easy to be addicted in a Plutonic relationship; when actually by learning to transmute jealousy into freedom, neediness into acceptance and sexual needs into tantra.

By allowing ourselves to be freed from shackles of all that Pluto uses to confine us, we can better experience the connection to all that is, and that which is true love.

And so what IS true love? Well of course it is about accepting the other and loving them unconditionally, but it's also about seeing them as they are, beyond ones needs. Again this comes back to learning to step into the depths of Pluto, in order to disregard the energies that hold us to all of the ego-based earth bound energies.

True love is freedom and faith; truth and forgiveness; kindness and giving. In order to access the higher more spiritual attributes of true love, one must then look to Chiron.

Chiron was discovered in 1977 around the same time the twin flame concept was beginning to surge in the modern world and it really does hold the key to understanding more about the twin flame connection….

More about that in another article.

Reap what you sew in February 2019

February 2019 is an unusual month by astrology standards. For the entire month there will be no planets moving retrograde, they are all racing through the sky at full speed, imploring us to be extra focussed and ambitious throughout.

Now, for those of you who are unaware of what a 'retrograde' is, it simply refers to how a planet is moving in comparison to where the earth is in its orbit around the Sun. As Mercury's orbit is between ours and the Sun, there are 3 times a year where overtake it, hence this is what we refer to as a 'retrograde' period.

Oftentimes, Mercury retrograde is dreaded, as it is so incompatible with modern life; the fact it interferes with communications, travel, and creates misunderstandings can cause us to make mistakes. Something most people's lives have little room for these days.

Prior to the computer age, Mercury would have caused just as many problems with the postal system, clocks, and responsibilities.

What is overlooked however, is that all planets during their retrograde periods, operate in a different way which is equally valid to our lives, should we choose to recognise it!

Mercury retrograde can help us to be more creative and introspective, if you need to edit, or revise some work you have done, then choose a Mercury retrograde period. If you want to learn a language or find a new way to communicate entirely, again start under a Mercury retrograde. Equally all of the other planets have their own shades of depth when retrograde and the outer planets spend around a third of the year going backwards!

To have an entire month with no retrogrades is, indeed, unusual. February is going to be fast paced and intense. Now whilst it can be tiring to have all these weeks of endeavour and so little repose, it is also an amazing opportunity to put ideas, projects and plans in place which can fruit as the year passes.

March is going to be an important month anyway, with Uranus moving in to Taurus for a period of 7 years. So much will change with our finance systems and how use and invest money during this time (more about that in a future article).

So this is a period in which we should really look at what we want to procure in the coming months, grow our ideas and sew some seeds. A lot can be accomplished this year. With Saturn and Pluto still in cahoots in Capricorn for another year this is a period of hard work and achievement anyway. Of which there will be a culmination of great change in 2020, but again, I shall explain more about that when it's relevant.

For now, utilising the Capricorn energy is key. Capricorn is the most high achieving sign in the zodiac, it even sits right at the top of the chart, representing culmination, career and attainment.

From 3rd/4th February up until March, Venus will be traversing through Capricorn, bringing a creative and softer tone to this rather dry sign. As it meets up with Saturn on 18th February, commitments in love are well featured, and new relationships beginning at this time will have a grounded, mature and long-term feeling about them (unless Uranus in transit is dominating your chart at the moment, which would overpower this affect).

Further on, when Venus meets up with Pluto on Saturday 23rd January passions will run high and this could be a very exciting weekend! Pluto is far more about attraction and chemistry than relationships and love, but one can lead to the other when Venus is in the picture. Regardless, most of us enjoy the depths of emotions possible when these two meet up.

Interestingly Neptune is hanging around right in the middle of Pisces, the sign it rules, for all of February. Neptune is about our dreams, desire, fantasies and all that is intangible. Functioning alone, it can be like a choir of angels but quite often working at a cross purpose to the day to day lives which consume us. As Saturn, also in its own sign, is at mid-Capricorn for the entire month also, these two planets are having a rare conciliatory phase. Representing, as they do, such different areas of life; Saturn dealing with all that is constructive and physical, frequently seems to disapprove of the airy fairy ways of Neptune.

They do however, form a nice little connection (called a sextile) from Pisces to Capricorn and actually as a team they are indomitable. After all what use is a dream and an amazing idea, without the constructiveness to build it in the real world? How useful is a responsible, and hard working life, without the beautiful transcendence of great music or an absorbing movie?

On a personal level the melding of Saturn and Neptune can help us to keep a foot in both worlds, which is always the kind of balance which brings the most health, happiness and success.

This is a powerful period, and after the tumultuous energy of January, it may feel a little pressurised. Just be aware that things will calm down going forwards, but the potential to build something meaningful and prosperous during the early part of this year is unusually auspicious. Make it work for you!

The Eclipse Season ~~ January 2019

The year begins on a sombre tone, celebrations will be tamer and less elaborate than usual. There may be some how can ignore the Sun meeting up with Saturn from 1st to 3rd January, in fact indulging in excess is possibly only way to avoid it. So, those prone to extremes, may be more so, but overall most will have their eye on the year ahead, with the consideration of how to make it a productive and successful one.

It could be my own eyes, from my environment, but it seemed that 2018 was a particularly difficult year for most. Whether we can consider that to be a result of both Saturn and Pluto being in Capricorn, and the fact that Chiron in early Aries was having a little show down with Saturn for a large part of the year, it's hard to say. Maybe having 6 months of the year taken down by inner planet retrogrades; with Venus and Mars adding to Mercury's regular backward parade, also played a large part in slowing down progress and enjoyment for many.

{PS – if any of you really loved 2018 and had a great year, I would be very interested to hear about it – please do email me at: waxlobster@hotmail.com}

The first Eclipse of the year will be at 1:29am on Sunday 6th January – as always it will effect those with a birthday falling around this date the most, or those whose birthday is at the opposite end of the zodiac; around 8th July (give or take a couple of days either side). The is a New Moon eclipse and a partial Solar Eclipse (mostly visible in Russia) which signifies new beginnings.

This will be a very interesting year for those who have planets affected by 15'25º Capricorn, particularly those who begin their year at this time (if your birthday is around 6th January).

The Sun and Moon fall close to Saturn at 12º Capricorn and close enough to Pluto at 20º Capricorn, this is, in effect a taste of what is to come later, as these planets dancer closer together and then step apart once more. They don't actually meet up in the sky until year 2020 and it's fair to expect all manner of change when they do.

As this particular eclipse links up the chasm between them in the sky, there will be a sense of change in the air. A nice aspect to Neptune in Pisces softens the energy and gives a kind of ambitious flavour to the week. Although there is a feeling that fate and destiny are irrevocable forces, Neptune brings the potential for dreams, creativity and the imagination to provide an uplifting outlet. When WW2 broke Saturn and Pluto were in an exact aspect – a hard square – those who lived through this time will talk about how this time brought out the best in people though too.

In a world which has been racing into a materialistic, technological age, in which the rich and poor divide is once more becoming more pronounced, something does need to give. There are all manner of possible eventualities and ways that big changes are due over the next 2 years, but I think there is a sense of inevitability about the fact that they will occur.

The last time Saturn and Pluto met up in this manner; was in 1982 in Libra and I think it's fair to say that this marked the beginning of capitalism as we now know it. The start of 'the throwaway society' when things began to be made with less artistry and integrity, so that they could be more quickly replaced and profited upon. What kind of an era will be see the beginning of 2020? Well I shall look deeper into that later in the year, in the meantime know that the planets show change, but it's the people on the planet who dictate the kinds of change that will occur….

As an interesting side note, the last time Saturn and Pluto met up in the same sign; Capricorn, it was 1518. The treaty of London at this time created a peace union between all the countries in Europe and a promise to defend one another against attacks from other Empires! This time around we have Brexit….

The second January eclipse takes place on Monday 21st January at 5:16am, with the Sun having moved into Aquarius the previous day, this eclipse falls at 0'51 Leo. So all of you Leos who are born on the first day of your sign (over the cusp from Cancer) will definitely feel this quite intensely!

On the plus side, energy will be high during this Full Moon. Venus and Jupiter will be having a jolly old time in Sagittarius, lifting spirits, encouraging the more upbeat and brighter side of life is appreciated. Jupiter is all about fun and laughter on the upside, and congenial, peacemaking Venus does tend to bring out this side in Jupiter, especially whilst traversing through the sign of Sagittarius which Jupiter rules and correlates to.

There is, however also a square to Mars in Aries in the mix here. Now if you wanted to do something daring, random and sporty, this is a great time to most enjoy such an activity. If though, you are in more restrained environment, hoping that disputes don't break out and tempers don't flare….well I'm afraid you'll need to wish hard. Mars is Aries is fast, reactive and armed with great energy and drive. Jupiter in Sagittarius, is over opinionated, zealous and can be quite combative. There is only so much Venus can mitigate with pleasantries when there is a Full Moon in the mix also.

This eclipse could bring about some explosive energy, Uranus about to leave Aries for the final time, may well wish to make it's mark through fire and intensity. It is at a square to the eclipse point and there is a potential for; natural disasters, uprisings and disputes on small and large scales to come about as a result of this eclipse.

It is important to note that eclipses can be activated for up to 6 months before and after their events. Planets touching on the areas in the sky where the eclipse falls at all time in coming months, could re-activate them. So, for this one in particular, when Mars makes a square to the 0'51 Leo point from 0'51 Taurus, we could find that all that I cited above is reactivated for a day or so. Sometimes the reactivation points are stronger, so 15th and 16th February 2019 could be dates to be cautious. Days to lie low, book in a massage, or cosy time this weekend perhaps.

Overall it is rather an intense beginning to the year. The New Year always begins with the Sun in Capricorn but this year, having the two heavy weights (Saturn and Pluto) traversing up and down, activating eclipses and hitting the personal planets makes it all a whole lot more intense.

For those of you who are ambitious and want to make waves in your career, there is a good potential in fact in these areas. Things are a little more rigid and conservative, but hard work is more notably rewarded at this time also.

Jupiter in Sagittarius suggests a more global approach at this time. Travel is not necessary for the world to connect up any more. New areas of commerce and different ways of trading are increasing in popularity and will continue trending when Uranus moves back into Taurus on 6th March 2019. Think outside the box, or if you're more like me ~~~burn the box!

Jupiter in Sagittarius - 8th Nov 2018 to 2nd December 2019

At 12:39pm (UK time) on Thursday 8th November Jupiter will move into Sagittarius. The last time Jupiter was in it's home, was 2007, where it was resident for the entire year up to the end of December 2007. Do you remember 2007? There may be similar themes coming up over the next 12 months.

As Jupiter rules Sagittarius it will be felt more powerfully, which can only be a good thing, as it it engenders optimism, good will and positivity, areas which have seemed to be lacking in many of our lives during 2018 so far. Saturn's residency in Capricorn has brought quite a deal of heaviness, even to those to whose personal planets are not directly affected.

This isn't going to change anytime soon unfortunately, as Saturn will remain in situ for a little while yet however despite the fact that it is bringing a sombre tone to proceedings, it is highlighting areas which are outdated and cannot continue to operate as they have in the past. By the time Saturn moves into Aquarius in March 2020 it is fair to say some important political changes will have occurred.

As Sagittarius is a sign which deals with language, travel and culture, there will be some rather interesting emphasis upon these areas in the coming months. Global issues will be in the spotlight and things will, as usual, likely get worse before they get better. Divisions may be more notable and religious contention will be brought into the spotlight once more.

The time that Saturn spend in Sagittarius in recent years, and the issues that came up as a result, will be reconsidered. However, things tend to end on a good note with Jupiter, though known to create excess and expansion wherever it falls, it is a planet which wants to propagate equality and fairness. Although there is an argumentative side to Jupiter, overall judgement is not favoured and the fights created are for peace and the good of humanity.

There will be an upturn in conscientiousness during the next 12 months, the side that is for goodness and equality will start to be backed more avidly. We may even see a better version of politics on our home shores at long last. A great deal of work is needed right now to rectify the damage which has been created in society in the UK (and quite probably many other parts of the world). I have the optimism to believe that Jupiter in Sagittarius will begin those reparations.

To provide a more horoscope style synopsis I have written a little about what to expect for each of the Sun signs during this period running from Thursday 8th November 2018 to Monday 2nd December 2018. Do please note that the write up for your Sun (or star) sign is general, for a reading to find out more about Jupiter in your chart now and when you were born then contact me at: waxlobster@hotmail.com

Sun in Aries,
Jupiter is a compatible planet for you, ruler of fellow fire sign, Sagittarius it embodies all of the traits you would naturally associate with Sagittarius in the chart. Falling in the natural 9th House in your solar chart, Jupiter here is all about travel, exploration, philosophy and beliefs. As an Aries, you not only have the strongest and most vibrant position for the Sun, you also have a natural relationship with all of the planets, so that when they are in their own signs you feel them more strongly than most.

This gives you increased power and this year you will be able to use all of the energy, optimism and 'luck' associated with Jupiter to work in your favour.

Of course 'luck' is what we attract when we are resonating with ourselves and our environment as authentically and as optimistically as possible. This will be a more natural state for you this year Aries. You've had enough of the Scorpio/8th House soul searching and now will have the chance to shine and get out and about more, just as your natural soul energy calls you to.

Sun in Taurus,

If you are a strongly Taurean type you probably won't resonate very easily with Sagittarius as a sign. They can be argumentative, unpredictable and rather flippant for your taste. This will may be an unnerving year for you as a result Taurus, you do like to know where you stand and what to expect and none of this will be quite so clear as you would wish.

With Sagittarius falling as your natural 8th House, you will be digging deeper into your psyche at this time and learning more about your true beliefs and motivations. You may be the kind of Taurus who believes you are a free spirit, and after this year but after this year you will have a far better and richer understanding of what freedom truly is. Sometimes you have to let go of everything to find who you really are, and that can be quite a scary thing to do. Jupiter is upbeat in its manner though and whatever it touches it will expand and uplift, so the learning curve will be easy to yield to, once you've taken the leap of faith required to enjoy this period fully.

Sun in Gemini,

with Jupiter in Sagittarius in your opposite sign, your focus for the next year will be on personal relationship. Fortunately Jupiter brings an uplifting and joyful energy, as well as being a little over zealous and argumentative at times, so the overall experience will be to explore and learn more about yourself as your relate closely with another.

You will attract a positivity in this area of your life, so Geminis not currently involved are likely to meet somebody during this time.

Relationships for this year will help you understand more about what you really believe and assist in you developing a deeper sense of faith and purpose in your life. There will also be a focus on making more time for fun and laughter too though, Jupiter is also the joker and the trickster planet and you share much in common with this more mischievous vibration of this expansive planet.

You may find that you have more time to travel with a partner too, as Jupiter is not only about exploring your inner world, but also rules the desire to witness other ways of life and culture.

Sun in Cancer,

Interestingly Jupiter is exalted (meaning it operates at its best) in Cancer, and so, whilst there may seem to be a little difference between your focus on home and family and the explorative nature of Jupiter, you actually resonate easily with this planet.

During this period Jupiter will be moving through your solar 6th House, casting a focus up on the day to day elements of life. Now, this isn't the most fun or entertaining area of anybody's chart, but on the other hand Jupiter will make it so and, much can be achieved during this time.

The boring bits of life; the housework, the administrative side of things, what you eat and the kind of foods you buy, all of these things come into focus. This is a great year to begin a new, healthier lifestyle; to give up any foods which you know don't suit you, to take up a yoga class to improve your posture and regulate your sleep patterns.

These areas of life can be very enjoyable when approached with zest and enthusiasm and the overall happiness which will be achieved in the long-term will always be retrospectively worthwhile.
Sun in Leo,

As a fellow fire sign you enjoy Jupiter being in it's own sign and this area of your chart is particularly compatible, as Sagittarius is your solar 5th House, the house that is naturally ruled by Leo. This is a time when you can really come out of your shell and shine.

The last 12 months have been a little dull in their focus and your spirits have been lower than usual, this will begin to improve now, as the fun more upbeat side of your nature will start to take centre stage again. There is also a correlation with children when there is an emphasis on this house, so you may find your job, home or family has more of a focus on children at this time.

For Leos who desperately need a 'pick me up' to shake off recent stresses, joining a theatre group, an art or a dance class at this time will have a wonderful overall effect on your spirit. You will also be more attractive to those around you. Enjoy, you were born to shine and now is your chance to really feel like yourself again. Even shy Leos will feel more confident and comfortable in the limelight during the year ahead.

Sun in Virgo,

This year is all about the home for you Virgo, Jupiter will be shining into the area of your chart which deals with your domestic situation and your family. You could well decide to move where you live this year, but it will be your own choice to do so.

You may find that you are more interesting in learning about the history of your family, and spending time with people you have neglected a little in previous years. Home decorating is also possible and some Virgos may even more abroad, with Jupiter being associated with travel and cultural exploration.

For some it may be more about learning and filling in the gaps in your education, there may be areas of study that you have considered for years and not quite had the time or inclination to do so. This is a great time to do some home study, or develop some personal health regimes that you can develop as a routine from home. We all need to work on ourselves and Virgos tend to understand the importance of this more than most, this is a good time to make your home your castle, Virgo.

Sun in Libra,

This will be sociable year for you Libra, as Jupiter in your solar 3rd House gives you the inclination to get out there and talk to the people in your locality. The 3rd House of the chart is about your neighbourhood, environment and how you interact and communicate with it. You may find that you have more interest in getting involved in what's going on around and near you at this time, and will want to have more of a voice.

If you've ever had a desire to become better at public speaking, or singing, this is a great time to develop these attributes, perhaps you've always wanted to learn a language? There is not better time for this than when Jupiter is in the sign of culture, travel and higher learning.

Travelling will be more enjoyable at this time, but the shorter trips are highlighted when the 3rd House is lit up. Perhaps you'll think about moving to a different neighbourhood, or simply develop a more vibrant social scene a little further afield from where you reside.

This is a great time to develop your thoughts and opinions recreationally Libra, Jupiter moving into Sagittarius will be very liberating and uplifting for you.

Sun in Scorpio,

Well, I'm sorry to say that after a year of uplifting Jupiter in your sign you are going to have to get used to life without it again.

That's the bad news, the good news is that this year could prove very helpful financially. Jupiter in your solar 2nd House, does imply more comfortable finances and the ability to make more money in the next 12 or so months.

The 2nd House is also about the physical touch and food, so the inclination to over-indulge could be present at this time too. It's good to look into the kinds of foods which suit your constitution, as getting in touch with what suits your body is what allows you to be more free and easy with your eating habits.

Jupiter will help you understand your physical body better and this is a great time to not only try out different types of food stuffs, but also to take up something more culturally diverse such as yoga, martial arts, reiki etc. Connecting a more diverse cultural practise to your physical routine will really help you thrive this year Scorpio and it will also take you out of your head and help you to think less and live more in the moment.

Sun in Sagittarius,

Finally, your ruling planet is back! It's been 11 or so years since Jupiter was in Sagittarius and it's a wonderful feeling for Sagittarians when your solar 1st House is finally graced by the presence of joyful Jupiter!

This is going to be a great year for you Sagittarius, the world is your oyster once more and you know exactly how to appreciate the help and uplift that Jupiter will be bringing to your life.

Many of you will take a little more time to travel, your energy levels will be great improved at this time. You've not really felt at your best for the last year, so there is a lot that you feel that you have been missing out on that you will now, miraculously have more time and energy to focus upon.

As you are often more of the teacher than the student you are likely to come educational ideas at this time. There will be some of you who are inclined more to study, but the more experienced of you realise how much you have to share and give back to others and this year brings a great opportunity for you to come up with new endeavours in this area.

Enjoy Sagittarius, you've had a rough few years, you deserve this!

Sun in Capricorn,

On the plus side you will feel energised by Jupiter in Sagittarius, it generates more natural energy in its own sign, but this will be strangely introspective year for Capricorns. Jupiter will be in your solar 12th House, and so a lot of what happens may feel like it's very random and unpredictable to you, even when it's very positive.

The 12th House is quite intangible and difficult to 'feel' the best way to get a handle on it, is by developing a regular meditative practise and keeping a dream diary. The subconscious rules the show in this realm and whilst it is just as (usually far more) instrumental in the manifestation process, it is a little more difficult to control and understand.

With Saturn in your sign for another year or so, you have enough in your life to control, or feel that you should be keeping an eye on however, so you could look at this Jupiter transit as a great form of escape from day to day life.

If indeed you do take the time this year to meditate and go within more, you will develop a much closer relationship with yourself, your surroundings and consequently, those who really matter the most to you in your life too.

Sun in Aquarius,

Jupiter will fall in your solar 11th House, which is actually the same house which is naturally ruled by Aquarius in the chart. Consequently, a lot of your focus this year will be on the more Aquarian, innovative and creative side of your nature.

Your natural altruism and desire for equality and fairness in life will be highlighted, and you will most likely become far more involved in supporting the community and local charities. The current trend for environmental concerns and more kindness towards animals will continue to grow in popularity and many Aquarius will be instrumental in developing these concerns further in the public eye.

You may be more inclined to look at causes overseas, than at home, any can factor in at this time and your sway, wherever you focus your attention, will be at its most prolific.

Humour will also become more important, as it breaks down barriers and joins people together. This should be a fun year for you Aquarius, but it will also be industrious and one where you branch out and focus on what matters to you, more than you have for a long time.

Sun in Pisces,

There is a good relationship between Pisces and Jupiter, back in the days before your ruling planet; Neptune was discovered, it was said that you were ruled by Jupiter. Indeed, there is a commonality between your connection with the spiritual truths and Jupiter's affinity with the more earthly manifestation of these.

It's easy for you to feel lost at sea and for those of you who have had the Neptune doubling up on your Pisces planets a little buoyant Jupiter throwing a more vibrant aspect to your planets will be very welcome.

Sagittarius is your solar 10th House, so actually this year will show a lot of support going on for you career-wise. If you have ideas or areas at work which you think you could really develop your knowledge or experience, this is the time to speak up.

Further training could be of great benefit to you this year, or it could be that you already have a skillset which is being overlooked and would bring you a lot more fulfilment.

An entire change in direction will occur for many Pisces, and it will be of great benefit to you whatever it is. Your tendency towards self-doubt is your weakness, if you allow Jupiter to boost your confidence this year, you can achieve so much more than you think. Go for it Pisces!
