Jupiter in Leo: shine always, shine everywhere!
In July 2014 Jupiter moves from Cancer sign into Leo sign. This cosmic event significantly affects not only on the image of the current fashion, but also on our personal relationship to it. In Veronica Tkachenko’s article «Fashion Astrology: how to find your place under Sun and under Moon?» we conducted a comparative analysis of the influence of Jupiter in Cancer and Jupiter in Leo. Period when Jupiter stays in Cancer we called Lunar-Jovian and Jupiter in Leo: Solar-Jovian period in fashion. When Jupiter is under the control of Moon, we are like Moon: we choose clothes with smooth constructive lines, with an oval key silhouette, which provides the necessary comfort and emotional security. Jupiter in Leo has a completely different energy background for the development of fashion. Sun is our daylight, the center of the solar system. It’s principle is: shine always, shine everywhere! This citation by Vladimir Mayakovsky best characterizes not only Sun, but also the fashion of that period. Jupiter in Leo gives us more energy, courage, desire for self-expression, individual creativity. This period will be productive for designers, those born under Leo Zodiac sign, as well as those who have Ascendant or stellium in Leo in the individual horoscope. Thus, the source of inspiration for the period of Jupiter in Leo (July 2014 - August 2015) will be the symbols of Sun and all that it involves.
Fashion trends by Jupiter in Leo:
1) the image of fashion: sunny, theatrical, dramatic, generous, free;
2) color: yellow, ocher, gold, purple;
3) key silhouette: A-Line;

- stylized animals of Leo sign (lion, tiger and other members of the cat family);

Jupiter, the planet as it should be «great happiness», forms a fashion trend entirely. Additional features in the image of the new fashion make other planets: Uranus, which creates novelty aspect, and Saturn, which forms a key silhouette and constructive lines. Symbolic trine between Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Leo in 2014-2015, contributes to the appearance of original fashion ideas that will long remain in the fashion storehouse.
