Just a short note on Tims’ progress. He is doing remarkably well! I saw him  the day after his surgery and he looked bright, full of mischief (as always, he is a Gemini after all!) and his colour was good,his spirits good. But his surgeon has sworn him off working at all for the next 2 weeks and I believe he is giving his girls, who are taking good care of him a bit of a hard time. Tim is an exceptional astrologer. both he and I write this column for free, but he  must recover, recuperate. I hope I can fill in these big shoes, so bare with me and I know we all send good wishes and a speedy recovery to Tim.Get well Tim we miss you!


With the Sun’s’ ingress into Leo on July 22nd, 2014 we have a whole new set of galactic players on stage! With Jupiter, the planet of boundless optimism,abundance, good times and wisdom, we will witness the Leos in our lives perk up, big time.

Generally speaking the transit of the Sun,Venus, Mars, Jupiter and the direct motion of Saturn will stir up the pot in all our lives greatly. The Sun is our vitality, our public persona, our father, our husband iF we are women. Venus is art, music, love, creative expression,, women, and romance. Mars is young men, war, argument, fighting, blood, surgery, sharp tools and muscles. Jupiter as said, is abundance and we will discussing it in further detail in the Leo luck forecast. Saturn rules hindrances, obstacles, but as well hard work and gain through constant effort and while abundance may come swiftly for those blessed with a good Jupiter, those with good Saturns’ find success through perseverance.


The week begins with the new Moon in Leo and moves through Virgo, and by the 2 August enters Libra. We have an area of the natural zodiac touched by the waxing Moon. These signs will experience a possibility to renew, regenerate and start new projects with ease, the result of the Moon’s energic assistance, giving you zeal, vitality and eagerness.

Jupiters entrance into Leo on July 16, 2014 celebrates the showman in all of us but more so for those born under the regal sign of Leo. Over the upcoming 12 months Leo’s are back in the driving seat, feeling full of courage, abundance, joie de vivre and most of all luck. Leos born between July 22 and August 15 will  have the Greater Benefic, Jupiter  passing over their Sun degree right up to December 8, 2014 when Jupiter retraces his steps. This gives those born between August 5th and August 22 a second kick at the can in terms of reviewing what applications they may use this beneficial period for. The answer to that will be found in creative projects, money from inheritance, children, spiritual or higher learning and foreign travel. The name of the game here Leo is to explore your skill, wit and talent. And sell it with great fanfare, this is a moment in time when you can pull off just about anything!

for? With a Leo,,, everything, but for those born during this 9 day period  you have really hit the celestial jackpot. Before the rest of the Leo pride email me ,,,your time with Jupiter’s magic is yet to come, so not to worry.  


For those Leos born between July 23 and August 9 there will be a challenge or argument accompanying this transit of Jupiter.

This lifts just before Christmas 2014, so chin up.Your romantic embers will refire after mid December There are always ups and downs in relationships, and as Nietzsche said “ what doesn’t kill you , makes you stronger” or was it Cathy Clarkson? At any rate the beauty of astrology is that it teaches all of us that change is the essential nature of our Universe.
