The planet of hope, optimism and expansion Jupiter, relocates into the sign of Virgo. This planet visits each zodiac sign every 12 years, so this is a very important event.
I feel that there is going to be a much greater emphasis on people becoming more informed and knowledgeable about health, diet and fitness matters. Due to the explosion in technology, sedentary lifestyles have become the norm for many of us. Jupiter promotes education, and Virgo purity making for an interesting combination, despite Virgo, not being a zodiac sign, with which Jupiter sits so easily.

Aries 21 March - 20 April
Today is the first full day of Jupiter's new entrance to Virgo but Mars is also now in sunny Leo. With a powerful collection of influences across both these zodiac signs now this is a wonderful platform, urging you to blend talent to application. Your skills can truly flourish - if you put in the necessary perspiration Lion.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
You can find yourself feeling really optimistic, and even if your everyday circumstances are rather challenging, they can just seem that much less testing. Today's influences can help you to feel physically stronger, and also show that your personality and sense of perspective, along with a slice of wit, can serve you well.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Someone close to you can be especially kind and thoughtful. Of course you are at liberty to demonstrate these emotions to someone close to you. Generosity of spirit is just as important as any other kind of giving, and over the next three of four weeks you may find yourself closer to a sibling, or someone who lives by you.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Combining your mental attributes and qualities with your desires, can prove to be very telling. Few can manage resources as skilfully as a Cancer in full flow, so if you really put your mind to something now, your talent for squeezing the most out of the least, can really shine through. Entering a competition can also appeal.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Once every twelve years, the planet of traditional fortune in astrology, Jupiter, makes its way through each zodiac sign. In the last twelve months you have been the lucky beneficiary of this transit. Though it may not have "seemed fortunate" for you, all your hard work can now start to be rewarded. So, keep the faith, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
You're at the beginning, symbolically and physically, of a brand-new cosmic cycle. It doesn't mean to say that all the old cosmic cycles are at a complete close, because cycles stack up on top of one another. But this one is to do with your appetite for new experiences. And this is at a really potent high now, so seize the moment.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Mercury is now in opposition with the dreamy energies of Neptune. It is possible that your nervous energy could be rather lowered by this - although in contrast, there are some very upbeat buoyant and sociable vibes too. The trick Libra, is going to be in balancing what energy you do have, and applying it succinctly.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
You've probably looked at your professional prospects in an increasingly different way over the last year. There may have been breakthroughs, successes and plaudits, but your mindset has continued to evolve and you are ripe for establishing newer priorities. And feeling more connected to others will be part of this.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Mercury is accentuating your professional and worldly sector and is opposed by the mysterious vibe of Neptune. It's going to be important therefore that you don't let subtle emotional or personal issues interfere with the clarity of your judgement, especially around worldly affairs. Being over-sensitive could cause issues.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
If you need to discuss anything factual today, especially around contracts, agree travel schedules etc, it might not be a bad idea to get a trusted friend or family member to double-check what you have in mind. There's a real sense of expansion about your 'scope but you don't want to be overoptimistic or make an error.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
The next twelve months can be really significant to your long-term business, property, pension, or savings prospects, but perhaps not the next day or so. In fact, if there are any big discussions that you need to have, then it may be best to try to postpone these to this time, next week. A hard to figure, distortion prevails.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Mercury has been encouraging you of late, to be more detached - when it comes to how you interact with others. And you have probably really appreciated that everyone has a right to their own truth. However, this can become much more challenging now. Partly it's because all of us need to fight off a subtle subjectivity.
