Our attention is on some Jupiterian concept or area of life, consumed with having or getting more, with expanding our world, with the facts, with finding or making opportunity, with ‘getting the word out’ in some form or fashion, with learning or teaching, with beliefs, and with certain forms of freedom, the ‘don’t tie me down’ kind. Some astrologers see this transit as lucky, and it can be, but the luck arises from our concerted focus on Jupiterian elements of our lives, rather than from any external force that randomly bestows favor. It’s a case of being lucky precisely because we are attuned to where we can expand, where we can find more. We’re ready to grab the opportunity or take the advantage as we become keenly aware of it as soon as it’s on the horizon, even feeling it as it approaches. And that’s where we meet the other aspect perfecting today, the Sun quincunx Saturn. This has to make us wonder what obstacle must be removed, what reality accommodated, what restriction gone around, what suppression thrown off, before we can get our hands on Jupiterian abundance. Find the benefit, find the obstruction, and you know just what you’ll need to do, to get your version of ‘More’.

For those born with the Sun at 15 Leo. Check your natal chart for the correct Sun degree (you may want to read both the degree number and the one that follows, if you have minutes on your Sun position–together these offer a more complete picture of your year ahead) Dear Leo, though it’s important for you this solar year, through to your next birthday, to have a clear idea of what you want and to go after it, it’s also important to know: the facts; what you truly believe; and what stands in your way. If you don’t sort those out, you may end up spinning your wheels, frolicking on a sunny beach, getting and changing nothing–and for some people, that’s perfectly fine. You, though, may be a little more restless than this, and do need to find some way to widen your horizons. Learn, travel, expose yourself to the new (to you) and exotic, and have no fear–you’re meant to break certain constraints this year, and your natural inbuilt cautions will warn you when you’re about to go too far. Good luck!

Today’s word image is a pilot who doesn’t seem to know how to fly the plane! Is there someone in your world who’s supposed to be an expert, who’s ‘in charge’ of important events in some significant way, who’s just not competent? Aside from any suggestion that they’re holding a position they shouldn’t, be aware that as frustrated as you are, they are just as frustrated, just as confused. The incompetence isn’t a feature of this person insisting on pushing their way into something they can’t handle, but more a result of being handed a status they never meant to hold in the first place. Go easy on them, and don’t get on that plane!


Seeing this Jefferson Airplane poster made me think of a time decades ago when I was babysitting some tweens. These were the days of Jefferson Starship. I joked that they must’ve gotten themselves more modern transportation, because they used to be Jefferson Airplane. The scoffs could be heard ’round the world. I was told in no uncertain terms that if I was going to make up stories, they’d need to be better than that!
