    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Every 12 years, Jupiter—the growth and expansion planet—delivers something more to a particular area of your life. Whether it’s proven to be a blessing or not, this past year of Jupiter in watery Cancer has increased matters to do with home, family, safety, and security. It’s been quite an emotional year, epic for some.

      Jupiter in Cancer has increased the need and the vulnerability. The planet, freshly in Leo, will produce a much different feel. The next 12-month growth spurt leads us on an exploration of our heart’s desires. Where Jupiter goes, we’ll find the creative force teeming with life and a renewed sense of “I deserve more and better.” Success, happiness, and joy—Jupiter’s current mission is to find the gold, to spark your courage, confidence, and initiative. The year ahead provides greater opportunity to shine, thrive, and love. Oh yes, more pleasure and fun are in the gift bag too.

      By Friday, we can all use a break. Venus in Cancer wants to eat, drink, and cozy up. Mercury trine Neptune sets an ideal backdrop for the Vancouver Folk Music Festival and Surrey Fusion Festival weekend.

      On Sunday, Saturn ends the retrograde cycle it began in April. The next day, Uranus begins a five-month retrograde tour. Together, they help us to get better pinpointed and on track. Joining Jupiter, the sun enters Leo on Tuesday at 2:41 p.m. Live, love, laugh, play.

Yes, reinvent yourself!

      April 19 - May 20

      The year ahead is one of pioneering, well-deserved fresh starts and testing yourself to see just how far you can get. Confidence, awareness, and personal happiness can grow by leaps and bounds.
