STAR OF THE MONTH
CAPRICORN 22 DECEMBER – 19 JANUARY
At some stage, everyone has to take a leap of faith, and Jupiter provides that opportunity – for now, and the year ahead. All your instincts say “jump” and, while the pressures of old habits and others’ expectations remain, you should still take the risk. If you can keep your head together through months of renovations, negotiations and frantic spurts of industry, you step into one of the most productive years of your life. Whatever happens, you're likely to get more of what you want. Make lasting investments, such as real estate. Some decide to extend a property or move to a distant location. Start working on your wish list now.
Aquarius 20 January – 18 February
During the next year, Jupiter brings you into the limelight. Think back 13 years, and you may find history repeating itself. Perhaps that, too, was a time of good fortune and new beginnings. The first change? A brand new self-image. It’s also a time for study and gaining new experience. Some benefit from a pay rise, promotion or bonus. Just stay sensible – sometimes it can be all too easy to fritter away good opportunities.
Pisces 19 February – 20 March
As Jupiter moves through your sector of subconscious and psychic sensitivity over the next year, Pisceans learn even more about the spiritual dimensions of their lives. If you feel more spiritually protected – you are; and if you need to be taught or healed, a guardian or new mentor will be close by. The really lovely news? If and when you truly need help, it's likely to arrive – sometimes from the most unexpected sources.
Aries March 21 – 20 April
Over the next year, Arien hopes and wishes come to the fore. Thanks to Jupiter, you’ll be busier and more involved with others. As Jupiter loves to arrange meetings with people, unlike any we've met before – expect to be venturing outside your usual social circle. Friends are also more supportive. But this isn't a one-way street, as you're equally able to offer assistance. Either way, don't be shy of depending on well-placed connections.
Taurus 21 April – 20 May
This year Jupiter brings a time of increased work satisfaction, via a new job or better career or financial conditions. All in all, work is a happier place to be. Other possibilities: travel or higher education. Business and pleasure mix more easily. Health should also be on the up – with one exception: a possible gain in weight. If this is something you'd prefer to avoid, all things in moderation.
Gemini 21 May – 21 June
Lost your way, just a little? Not to worry - Jupiter puts you back on track over the next year. This planet can also have a powerful maturing influence, a time of personal and spiritual growth - possibly through travel, new studies or teaching others. There may also be beneficial contact with those living overseas or with people from different backgrounds – so listen up when you hear an interesting accent.
Cancer 22 June – 22 July
Over the next year, Jupiter transits your sector of joint finances, intimate partnerships and other people’s money. For some, this transit can also indicate an inheritance or financial benefit. It's a time when Jupiter encourages you to try something new. Your mind is energised, and you’re busier with friends, projects and meetings. Don’t rule out passion either – kiss those loveless nights goodbye.
Leo 23 July – 22 August
Lucky Jupiter steps into your house of relationships and fun and stays for an entire year. Jupiter will take all of your favourite things, like love, parties, children and entertainment – and make them even better. Venus, too, has surprises up her sleeve. This sexy planet triggers the law of attraction your way. Money should come more easily. Just don’t take foolish risks. Clear credit cards, don’t add to them.
Virgo 23 August – 22 September
This year Jupiter transits your sector of health and daily work. As such, others will receive this delightful planet’s benefits through you – and you, through them. Not surprisingly, this helps you win many new friends and admirers. Those you touch with your kindness will be more than happy to return the favour when you need it – particularly professional contacts. At last, work could become a happier place to be.
Libra 23 September – 22 October
Generous Jupiter signals a spectacular time for love and sex over the next year, as well as extra cash. In the meantime, a tetchy Mars in your relationship sector can cause anger or confusion regarding a current partnership, especially if it’s new. If you’re hoping to keep a practical hold on this month’s events, think again. Have as much fun as you wish, but hold off on making any important decisions for a while. There’s no rush.
Scorpio 23 October– 21 November
Jupiter becomes a favourite houseguest this year, bringing joy, new friendships and optimism – as well as unlimited potential. As we rarely get something for nothing, expect some hard work as well. Be prepared to ditch dead-end plans. This will ready you for the new challenges ahead. Travel, love and laughter also feature. Fortunately, money is not too much of a problem, so you can afford to play as hard as you work.
Sagittarius 22 November– 21 December
Thanks to Jupiter’s wanderlust, your curiosity expands this year – making it an ideal time to try as many new opportunities as possible. Few details will escape your attention. A growing pile of books, magazines and emails clutter your environment. Relationships with siblings and close family should also improve. Travel’s on the agenda, especially short trips related to work or family matters.
