Generosity and sincerity are in favor for all connections you might make now. This can also be a good time for financial matters with the ruler of your sector of money and resources aligned with bountiful, lucky Jupiter.
LeoToday’s Sun-Jupiter conjunction stirs your desire to discover, learn, and grow, dear Leo. Success now has much to do with your visionary, optimistic approach. There can be an opportunity to do or learn something entirely new and beyond your usual bounds and routines. You’re also in an excellent position to promote, communicate, and publish. Making beneficial long-distance connections is possible. New hope and optimism are with you this week. With a more relaxed and creative approach to your life, the chance to improve and advance is opening up. While it’s important to avoid making too big commitments or promises, not only because this transit puffs you up with confidence but also due to a Mercury-Neptune semi-square, if you keep this in check, you’ll enjoy yourself now.

It’s a super time for enhancing, developing, and repairing relationships with higher-ups, parents, or business associates.

You’re motivated to make improvements and confident about your position, and this attitude can help point you in the direction of opportunities you may not have seen otherwise. For best results now, try to tap into Jupiter’s winning formula of an open mind, generosity, and faith rather than its tendency to excessiveness. Opening yourself up can help you attract the right things now. You may very well learn something about yourself or a relationship that empowers you to make profound and significant lifestyle changes. You could also benefit from combining resources with someone or gain a release from an obligation or debt.

You gravitate to positions that give you the feeling that you’re part of a bigger plan or something bigger than yourself.
ScorpioWith the Sun conjunct Jupiter today, dear Scorpio, increased optimism and hope can be powerful healers. Finding more meaning in your work and satisfaction in helping or serving others is a big theme, and graciousness leads to success. As always, when Jupiter is involved, however, watch for overcommitting, which can come back to haunt you later when you’re less energized or motivated. Still, you can feel a real surge of optimism and confidence about self-care and self-improvement, particularly through efforts to upgrade health, work, daily life, habits, and routines.

The desire to improve your life along romantic or creative lines can be compelling. You’re optimistic, passionate, and creative. There is a larger-than-life element to your feelings and desires, which can serve as a fantastic motivator, although it’s probably best not to push too hard or take on too much. Today is good for self-expression, dating, pleasurable activities, and hobbies. This transit is about your heart’s desire or heartfelt endeavors, passions, and loves. If you are doing something creative, it’s bound to be spirited. Love and romantic matters can thrive.
CapricornYour desire to improve your personal life soars today, dear Capricorn, as the Sun meets with Jupiter in your home and family sector.

Your curiosity and desire to learn, teach, and share are in focus. It’s a fine influence for news or information that sends you in a positive new direction or improves your outlook. Instead, you might gravitate to information that brings benefits to your life. New ways of communicating, connecting, and getting around can open up for you. Your mind is more willing, open, and curious, and you might gain a new appreciation for things in your daily life that didn’t pop for you in the past. Something boosts your confidence about your ability to study, learn, and communicate. Others might appreciate your writing, insight, work, or advice. Making long-range plans for improving your life, particularly when it comes to learning and connecting, is favored now.

Be generous and high-minded for the best results now, as these are the better traits of Jupiter that help you attract success. Overdoing things is Jupiter’s downfall, but you can avoid it with conscious effort. You’re more confident about manifesting your desires now, which helps attract the right things to you.
