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.
