Jupiter’s transit in the sidereal zodiac Leo (July 13)
On July 13, Jupiter leaves (sidereal) Cancer and enters the next zodiac sign, Leo. Jupiter’s transit from one zodiac sign to the next occurs, on average, once a year. Leo being a fixed and fire sign ruled by friendly Sun, Jupiter in Leo has a tendency to enhance material prosperity of those who have well placed and connected Sun and Jupiter in their birth charts while others who have unfavorably placed Jupiter with respect to Sun are likely to experience their prosperity diminish. In general, transit of Jupiter in Leo is positive. For one thing material prosperity around the world is likely to expand. (It must be noted that despite Jupiter’s positive influence on world material prosperity, effects of other planets should also be taken into account to assess the net result or effect). In addition, the influence of the leaders in all and every field will shape the future direction of our social evolution through the material, philosophical and spiritual debate. In general, the Leo Jupiter is known to be responsible for world material and wealth expansion. So from that perspective expect some positive economic changes during this period and welcome the Jupiter’s entry in Leo.
On individual levels, for those who have dominant Jupiter in their birth charts and have Libra, Cancer, Aries, Aquarius and Sagittarius as their natal ninefold ascendant are likely to experience a very positive twelve month period beginning July 13.

About President Obama….
President Obama’s operating planets (the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be Mercury and Jupiter till July 6, 2015, and then through the rest of the month Mercury and Sun. During July, Mercury stays in sidereal Taurus (and in the 10th house of his progressive chart) till July 5th, then it enters in sidereal Gemini (in the 11th house of his progressive chart), and on July 21 it moves into sidereal Cancer where it remains till the end of the month.
Since the tenth house Mercury is favorable (optimism, political gains and success) for him, until July 5th, he will continue to enjoy Mercury’s positive energy to successfully deal with the both international and domestic issues. Furthermore during July 5-21, the 11th house Mercury will be positive from the standpoint of carrying out his agenda and successfully dealing with his cabinet members. However during the last ten days (July 21-31) the 12th house Mercury may mean a slow period, perhaps few setbacks and disappointment..
The other planet, Sun is presently transiting through the 11th house of his progressive chart till July 17. And then for the remaining part of the month, through the 12th house of his progressive chart. As a result, until July 17, he will continue to have success in governing the country. But for the remaining part of the month, Sun being in the 12th house of his progressive chart, he will have real tough time dealing with his adversaries (6th house) and likely to experience some disappointment and few setbacks in carrying out his agenda.
