Are you ready for a shift in cosmic luck? Well get ready because Jupiter, the planet of growth, opulence and potential, will shift gears and move into detail oriented Virgo on August 11, 2015. He will remain in this discerning sign until September 9, 2016. While the thought of expansive and optimistic Jupiter moving through a sign known for critical focus may not initially appear exciting -- don't be so quick to judge.
So what can you expect from Jupiter in Virgo? For starters, Jupiter is in a weakened state during her tour of Virgo. Astrologically speaking, Jupiter in Virgo is in her "detriment." This is a fancy way of saying that Jupiter might have a more difficult time doing his thing while in Virgo. But it certainly doesn't mean you should stop celebrating. I mean come on -- this IS Jupiter we're talking about, not Saturn! The function of Jupiter is to expand what it touches and over the next year he will focus on expanding the Virgo qualities of craftsmanship, analytical thinking and self-improvement. The tendency towards self-improvement will likely center around health matters and/or intellectual pursuits.

Jupiter likes to make a lot of noise while Virgo prefers being humble. Because of this, you can expect Jupiter in Virgo to be a time where we all pay extra attention to doing our jobs, and doing what's right without worrying so much about gaining anyone else's approval. Faith is a Jupiterian quality, but now faith will focus on what is most practical to believe in rather than any pie in the sky notions. Also, you're likely to believe in your ability to do a job better than ever before. Productivity and organization will be areas you can certainly expand on as well.
Opportunities will arise for you when you're willing to go the extra mile for others -- without an agenda. Remember that!
Over the next thirteen months as Jupiter moves through Virgo, he'll be making a couple of fascinating links to other planets -- an elusive opposition to Neptune, a difficult square to Saturn and a brilliant trine to Pluto. This will shift Jupiter in Virgo's ability to move from expressing the shadow energy to the most highly evolved potential of Jupiter.
