Jupiter is the fun guy of the zodiac. He stays in a sign for one year, so every 12 years he completes a cycle. This year on June 11th, Jupiter moves into Gemini for one year. Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in Gemini - the communicators of the Zodiac. The Universe is sending us all many messages....and this year they will get bigger and bigger with Jupiter's bountiful influence. So start talking and be sure to sit back and listen too.
We will also see great strides in global communication methods as well. If you're a communications inventor, this could be your year to give us new gadgets to make cell phones look old and dated.
With all this stuff in Gemini - Sun, Venus, Jupiter - perhaps I should say a word about this sign. The twins. Two ways of looking at things at all times. Ruled by Mercury, this is the messenger of the God's sign. They spread the word, get the messages out, and negatively may be prone to loving gossip, unable to keep a secret, talk too much. They are very smart (Mercury is the mind), can multi-task like no one else, look at every angle from real to imagined, are full of ideas, then flitter about to test them all which makes the earth signs think of them as flaky but they are just exploring everything. The mind is having a wonderful adventure. Hey don't rain on my parade they say. They know something about EVERYTHING but are hard pressed to be masters of any without some solid places for Saturn or settling down aspects to Mercury. Then watch out. They are brilliant, which is why even Scorpio's are fascinated by Gemini's and these two can talk and philosophize for hours about a zillion things making other signs reel. So with Jupiter here, the mind is having a busy year. So many ideas, so little time. You have so much to say, how do you say it all? Your challenge is to find the ideas that resonate and discard the others. Gemini is a mental process of sifting through, analyzing, and leaving the unwanted or needed behind. Find the idea that makes your mind race with curiosity and run with it - then flesh it out with analyzing that one thing and making it better. Its the mental Olympics. It's the year of the mind expanding. It's the year we can find solutions that work!!
Jupiter is expansion. Jupiter loves big, the bigger the better.....and it doesn't always have the brakes on, so its a time to think of moderation because Jupiter is urging you to excess! Too many ideas, to many ways to go, too many options...ok lets try them all might be your impulse. Not a good idea. Pick and choose your expansion. Nothing gets done if you can't figure out where to begin. Jupiter is great for parties and fun and feeling good, but Jupiter can also make you lazy and you'll waste this bountiful energy by just feeling good and doing nothing tangible. Ask Saturn, the taskmaster, to help you ground yourself. Then you get the best benefits of Jupiter....good luck and the discipline to manifest it with some hard work. Make a schedule for work, stick to it, then have a party! You can do it all this year.
All this activity in Gemini's is good news for all other air and fire signs, so look for opportunities for success and jump on them. Water and Earth signs will be challenged by the energy. If you know your chart and what house rules Gemini in your horoscope, you'll know where this good luck will land, i.e. first house - people will see you as someone they want to know, 2nd - good for money and changing what you value; 3rd - jump on the communication bandwagon tell people you ideas; 4th - people will want to gather in your home for good times and stimulating conversations; 5th house - find love or renew your love affair with your spouse; 6th house - chores will be easier and health and pets should fare well; 7th - make new partners or solidify old ones; 8th house - a great year for sex and inheritances; 9th house - dig deep into your spiritual self;10th house - you could become a mogul; 11th house - friendships will renew, solidify and grow deeper; 12th house - wow work on that karma, spend time with you, renew yourself. Now if Jupiter is badly aspecting something else in your chart, those areas of your life can have periods of excessive stressful time too. Get to know your chart, it can help you navigate all these deep astrological waters of your life.
It's such an amazing year. But you have to work at it and I know you're tired, stressed and wanting to hide sometimes, but you have to be courageous now and DO THE WORK. Ask the Angels for help. They LOVE IT when you ask them for their help. Its what they were made for - to help us and do God's work. But you have to ask. They are not too busy for you. They WANT to help. Asking them for help should be routine. When we mingle earth life with our spiritual life, all the good comes into the earth. Acknowledge the Angels, the spiritual and it manifests here - and then the world just becomes a better place because the Love of the creator infiltrates our lives and our environment. Exercise your heart and fill it with love.
June 5th - eclipse of Venus in Gemini - this is a RARE eclipse. (this will be seen as a black spot on the sun - you can see this happening now in USA and full bore on 6/5-6 in the middle east.) Last Venus eclipse was 1874 when the Transatlantic Telegraph Cable was completed, creating east west communications!!! This represents the divine feminine. Using COMMUNICATION to change the world. Patriarchal ideas are NOT working. Look around and see the unrest, the unhappiness, the dis-ease, war, fear, pain, famine, destruction, power struggles. The feminine view has been obliterated as weak and useless. This marks a swing of the pendulum back to the feminine but to stop in the middle so we have balance. The universe is masculine and feminine, and equal parts of both will bring us harmony. Extremes are never good. One of the keys to this process is FORGIVENESS. This lets love flow. Love is the answer. Sit on the moon and see the earth. Wrap her and her inhabitants in white light and let them be healed. Send love from God and the Angels to everyone for divine healing. This releases the past and makes way for the new way. Right now light workers are working hard with the heavens to heal the earth. Working out their own karma, their own mistakes, their own transgressions head on, which is quite painful, but through their work old wounds are released, forgiveness takes over and everything is washed clean and new again.
But for a time the feminine must rule our actions. We are about healing, nurturing, kindness and caring. We must nurture one another and release the past. Befriend your ex, forgive your cranky boss, release your general anger and frustration. White lighting everyone is your new job. On the bus, in the car, watching TV...take time to wrap everyone, especially people you dislike, in this golden light and watch them and you heal. Maybe they will call you out of the blue and bridges will be rebuilt. Maybe they will just feel lighter and you'll never know. Maybe your boss will become helpful and thankful. Maybe politicians will start telling the truth. White lighting Washington is an imperative. They control things. Melt their hearts so they control with kindness and love, not fear and a greed for power.
And be creative. Venus rules the arts. Write, Paint, Sing, honor the arts by paying to see museum exhibits, theatre shows, good movies, etc. Reverence for the arts changes the vibrations of the world. How many art classes have we cut from our schools labeling the arts as unnecessary! Art is the Divine creative energy.
We are also developing intuitive communication now. Psychic if you will. You pick up on peoples feelings and needs. You 'sense" things. Honesty with your close relationships is imperative because honest communication is part of the new world. Lying is not OK. Half truths are not OK - even if the media says it is. We should be outraged at the amount of falsehoods spoken by leaders. We will make it stop by creating a world where honesty is sacred.
Truly thanking the Universe for our friends and family must be part of your daily life. How lucky are you to have a good friends, a reliable spouse, a loving child? Say thank you to the universe so the love between you will grow even more. See the divine in others (OK I'm working on the Dick Cheney thing but sometimes I do try, cause guys like him have to rise above too). We are lifting ALL boats now.
So you see, you don't need money or power. You have the strongest weapon there is at your disposal 24/7. God's love and white light. There is no short supply of this. Spread around the visual in your mind of everyone walking with our higher spirit and the rest will follow. Just like you pray for a sick friend, pray for everyone to have forgiveness in their hearts, and change will come like domino's falling, with precision, synchronicity and harmony.
Peace on earth is happening now. Are you participating?
