Jupiter and Venus in Leo

If you look into a clear, Western sky tomorrow at sundown, you will see two lovely stars sitting close to each other in the twilight. They are Jupiter and Venus, and are forming a perfect conjunction in Leo right now.  Venus (Love) has been chasing Jupiter (Fortune) for weeks and has finally caught up with the giant King planet. By tomorrow they appear as one star, depending on your location.

This is SO auspicious for love, art, prosperity and general well being. Venus and Jupiter are two of the "positive" planets or "benefics". They bring ease, comfort and abundance wherever they transit a person's chart. The fact that they are forming "one star" is a significant blending of these two positive forces. The conjunction occurring in the sign of Leo fuels the positive, heart centered vibe. This is an epic event and will continue for the next few months.

Leo is ruled by the Sun (another benefic) and awakens the heart. It enhances romance, art, self expression, money, leadership and healing. Leo shines. Business, romance, creativity and performance are highlighted. Jupiter and Venus are also forming a trine or positive angle to Uranus in Aries, which can bring surprises and sudden events. Uranus is the "genius eccentric" and inspires ground breaking creativity. This aspect further expands the love/philosophy vibe from Venus and Jupiter. Whatever you start right now will increase.

From the Cosmic Intelligence Agency:
"During this Jupiter 20° Leo and Uranus 20° Aries trine, Mercury 9° Gemini 9° square Neptune 9 ° Pisces, and Mars at 29° Gemini makes an awkward aspect to Saturn at 28° Scorpio the inconjunct 150°. The trick is always to layer transits by their effect in your natal chart, which ones are hitting off natal degrees and angles.
Jupiter and Uranus - ignite the area of change and expansion
Mercury and Neptune - add a sense of confusion, faith and believing in outcomes is required, and a re-imagining
Mars and Saturn - It's like the brakes are on, but they are on for a reason, so don't fly off too fast. Some things are just not in place yet.

According to Copernicus in "De revolutionibus orbis", Hermes Trismegistus called the sun a visible god - the alchemists equated the sun with gold, the purest of metals, which represented the perfection of all matter, material and spiritual. The sun has been an important object of worship throughout the ages and in various cultures. We will be offering you images based on "Signs & Symbols of the Sun" by Elizabeth S. Helfman, New York: The Seabury Press, 1974, a book which presents images of the sun from the Sumerians and the Egyptians to the Indians and Inuit.

Astrologers believe that the sun passes through different constellations of stars every thirty days in the year. The twelve constellations have signs known as signs of the zodiac. Astrologers say that a person’s life is influenced by the sign under which he or she was born. The sign Leo, the lion, in the last third of July and the first two thirds of August, is governed by the sun itself. Leo is a fiery sign; orange is its color, and the metal associated with it is gold. Just so, the alchemists associated gold with the sun. To the astrologers the sun is a symbol of power and good fortune."
