Jupiter is the planet of expanding into the world and new growth.  And a key word for those with a fire sign Jupiter is spontaneousJupiter in fire sign Leo expands spontaneously through creativity, play and the thrill of having a Big Personality.

Leo is the second fire sign after Aries, and is fixed fire -- this means there's sustained attention.  That gives Jupiter Leo staying power, to become good at something, and experience the full flowering of creative talents.


If this is your Jupiter, and you've lost your mojo, a remedy is seeking color, what makes your heart sing, or a creative risk that calls out your courage.  You wilt in situations where you're treated like an automaton, and not respected for your individuality. 

Nothing makes you more irritable than having to conform.  Being pressured to be the same as everybody else, makes you die a little inside.  Unfortunately, this often happens in school, where sudden outbursts are suspect or even punished. 

Your path to growth is to celebrate what makes you, You!  Have you been conditioned to hide your light under a bushel?  You might have some serious deprogramming to do, and Jupiter obliges.  An angle of Jupiter is freedom, and so your story is one of shaking off what hides your particular hues, quirks, talents and perspectives.

Leo is ruled by the Sun, and you shine brightest when you're able to put your unique stamp on everything you do.

  If you have a business, for example, you'll want everything associated with it -- promotion materials, website -- to reflect your true colors.  You take special pride in your children or could enjoy working with wee ones in some way.

What's so special about Jupiter in the birth chart, is that if you follow its signs and serendipity, there are in-your-face rewards.

  This happens to be my Jupiter Leo and I can see how my luckiest times have been when I've taken creative risks.  It's like those in your circle have a sixth sense for what to encourage most.  And allies and material needs seem to come when they're most needed.

A notable memory is when I adapted a short story for the stage and produced and directed it myself.  The elder actor called me, "Boss," respectfully.  And friends and family went on a treasure hunt to find props.  From that ensemble cast, I made many friends, some of which lasted, or become contacts for other creative projects.

Bright Star

Everyone wants to feel special.  But Jupiter Leo walks the lit path when acting on what makes him or her unique -- the particulars of the life story.  If this is your Jupiter, being self-centered has a pay-off, when it's not taken too far. 

Jupiter tends to overplay its hand, so you'll want to keep from outshining others, at least not all the time!  Your showboating style is endearing, though, and it encourages others to go big too. 

Leo is a sign of exuberance, warmth of heart and generosity.  What makes yours different from other Jupiter signs is the big-hearted Leo energies in abundance.  These traits are super-sized when Jupiter is in Leo and can get you through times of darkness or extreme challenge.

  You are also a light in the dark for others, helping them to see their unique spark when they are blind to it.

You have a knack for encouraging others and helping them build confidence.  That makes you a priceless friend, adviser, teacher or parent.  You especially love to be in love and can experience several larger-than-life love affairs. 

Your nature is to experience life as an adventure, and if you're low, bring more play into your life.  You're at your best when you've got parties and fun things to look forward to, like time with friends.  And yet, you also have a strong ambition to succeed and be a leader.  You'll want life's work that fulfills that desire to do work or bring up "creative" or actual children you can be proud of...
