July/August 2002 Astrology Forecast
Optimistic Jupiter enters fiery Leo, bringing with it an expansive attitude of passion, creativity, and enthusiasm. Jupiter wants more--more love, more money, more travel, and more spirituality. In Leo, Jupiter wants more fun!
While Jupiter was in watery and sentimental Cancer during the last year, many people experienced the expansion of their waistline. Jupiter in Leo increases your metabolism. You want to come out of the self-protecting Cancer the Crab shell in order to bask in Leo's sunshine.
Jupiter in Cancer wanted to stay close to home, suggesting that travel was reduced for reasons beyond the events of September 11th. Jupiter in Leo is ready for the next adventure or journey. Because Leo rules power, many people will be pulling out their EARTHLINEST relocation astrology maps to move or travel to their personal power spots.
Jupiter in Cancer had many people completing old family, personal, and relationship issues. Jupiter in Leo passionately wants fun activities and people. It is time to open your heart to new possibilities, including romance, creativity, and risk-taking adventure.
What is your heart's desire? Generous Jupiter wants to help you. Begin this process by making playtime during August and September. This will help you separate from your current reality, thereby giving you a fresh perspective and rekindling your lust for life.
Jupiter represents Higher philosophy and speaking the Highest Truth. Past life issues about being burned at the stake for speaking your Truth now need to be released. Jupiter is a wise teacher. Leo is a charismatic leader. It is time to bring out the Hierophant within you, teaching the sleeping masses to honor a Higher Purpose.
Look at your Sun sign and Ascendant sign below to get a hint about the areas of your life that are being passionately expanded through August 2003:
Aries: Pioneer new methods to expand creativity, romance, and activities with children. It is time to take a fun risk on yourself. Help people by encouraging them to enhance self-esteem.
Taurus: Areas of home, family, and needs for emotional security take on an optimistic tone. Purchase a new home, remodel, or relocate. Have a physical and/or emotional garage sale to make room for increased abundance.
Gemini: You are in for a restless year. Consider purchasing a new car, writing that book, or taking short, quick trips. You are learning to communicate higher philosophy into words that can be understood by all.
Cancer: This is a year to expand your prosperity consciousness. Open yourself to physical and emotional luxury, but keep spending in check. You learn that prosperity is based upon your connection to the One Source rather than on material possessions.
Leo: This is the year to spruce up your appearance and self-identity. Let the world know who you are while maintaining humility. The coach/mentor in you wants to help others.
Virgo: Open to intuition and spiritual service in the coming cycle. Your abilities as a spiritual teacher are enhanced. Trust yourself and allow your innate wisdom to be expressed in helpful ways.
Libra: Your good luck comes from networking with friends and organizations. Step into higher service to benefit the group consciousness. Help people to manifest their aspirations.
Scorpio: Private Scorpio needs to go public this year. It is safe (mostly!) to take your power to the world. Your job in the year ahead is to help the world see where it has become disconnected with Universal Law. The highest symbol of Scorpio is the eagle, and it wants to fly this year.
Sagittarius: You may have the travel bug even more than normal. Is this the year to move? If not, you may take on the minister role in order to help people to expand their life philosophy. You must speak with honesty and integrity, no matter how much trouble you get yourself into!
Capricorn: Allow yourself to use other peoples' resources this year. This can include bank loans or benefits from generous people who want to help you manifest your great ideas in the world.
Aquarius: Relationships and cooperation are key elements to your success this year. This is not the time to go it alone. You are teaching/learning a new way to share this year, and you must get involved to do it.
Pisces: Work, health, and humble service are not really the favorite things of Jupiter in Leo. Nonetheless, you will make great progress in the year ahead by applying leadership skills to make life simple. Expand your abilities to heal and be healed. Pets are also a blessing in the year to come.
