Tarot For Jupiter In Leo!

"wheel of fortune tarot card meaning Aliza Einhorn" The biggest astrological news at the moment is Jupiter having left crabby Cancer for furry Leo. And there is SO MUCH big astrological news at the moment (this week and next week) but I’ve got my eye on this one, and also the upcoming New Moon in Leo on July 26th.

There will be a Sun Moon Jupiter conjunction in Leo somewhere in your chart! What does this mean in plain English? One little section of the wheel that is your birth chart (a map of the heavens at the time you were born) will be all lit up and since we are talking LEO, that light will be super strong, super bright! Leo is fire sign. It is a royal sign! Leos are the Kings and Queens of the zodiac. Pedigree or not, they sure act like it ;) Their bravado and confidence is matched only by their massive generous hearts.

We just moved in to our new apartment! Today is the third full day (including moving day) and it wasn’t until last night that I unpacked my Tarot decks. Now, I am not a superstitious or overly ritualized reader. I don’t cut the deck a certain number of times. I don’t shuffle a certain number of times. I don’t even have a special magic cloth to wrap my decks in. I don’t wave a wand  or utter abracadabra ;) Although this work is mystical, intuitive, metaphysical, it is also very practical. I’m a practical mystic. And I packed my Tarot decks in ziploc bags for the move :)

When I took out the two decks that I use the most? I don’t know how to describe exactly. The decks felt not alive but…
And not like old friends but…
It felt like energy that had been cooped up uncoiling and opening up. A zap. All the energy from all the readings I’ve done.

So last night in one of the chat rooms I run, I did some free Tarot draws to get back in groove. (Which reminds me, I’m doing an astrology — with a smattering of Tarot — e-course starting next week. You can email me if you want to know more. Click on the link at the end of this post for my email address.)

So I decided to draw just one card and what a perfect card for Jupiter in Leo. I drew THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE! This card is often associated with Jupiter: luck, good fortune, living large, expansion, philosophical meanderings, adventure, exploration, faith, optimism.

On the one hand, we don’t know which way it will go. The Wheel goes up and the Wheel comes down. It’s unpredictable. No stasis here! Anything is possible. The Wheel of Fortune can bring a miracle to your life. Or the crash ending of a beloved relationship (just one example). But it’s not a Tower-type feeling. I think when the Wheel portends news or events that you do not want, it’s more subtle than Death or Tower AND that something good  (or something uncertain!!!) shows up in its place — a substitute. One thing is certain: CHANGE.

I have to admit though, despite my often realistic view of this card (all that jazz about nothing being permanent and ups and downs on the wheels of life) sometimes I just feel GOOD when I see this one. And also, context is everything. I once drew a three card spread consisting of Death, the Three of Swords, and the Wheel of Fortune. The Wheel, to me, was a promise. That after Death, after Three of Swords loss, there would be life again.

Some keywords for when you see the Wheel of Fortune:

*breakthrough
*fortune
*action
*change of circumstance
*fate (it’s out of your hands)
*new luck
*new opportunity
*whatever it is, it’s BIG
*new chapter
*motion
*Divine intervention
*abundance
*your life is expanding
*windfall
*recognition

And I know it’s a risk to draw just ONE card for all of Jupiter in Leo for EVERYONE everywhere but think about it: isn’t that Jupiter? Isn’t that Jupiter in Leo? Grand expansive RICH energy, richer than the most scrumptious peach tart and cool iced tea sipped on a glorious afternoon in mid-summer, fresh breeze in the air ahhh…

I don’t want to say Jupiter in Leo is lazy. I know plenty of hard hard hard hard working Leos! But Jupiter expands what it touches and Leo loves a little luxury. And then a little more.
