Jupiter goes direct in Gemini> 30/01/2013: Making magical choices! by Molly Hall
Jupiter has had its eyes turned inward since October 4th of last year (2012), and today stations direct. Jupiter retrograde was a time of reflecting on how well you’re thriving. Jupiter is momentum, growth and luck. In the mutable air sign of Gemini, the compass swings wildly at times — the trickster sign is multi-directional, erratic, prone to jerky moves.
If things feel out of control, take heart with Jupiter going direct. I see this as a time when things fall into place, in unexpected ways.
The lucky breaks of Jupiter in the quixotic (what does it mean?) sign of Gemini is about making choices. Mutable signs are here to act on the fly, adapt, rearrange the pieces. A mediation with Jupiter in Gemini has to do with how we’re exchanging currents — news, data, jokes, insights, etc. Gemini is the magician, so with Jupiter, what choices take us where we want to go? As Jupiter goes direct, let’s welcome clarity about how we’re doing as magicians — the in and out flow from many kinds of intelligences. We get dexterity with handling the crazy, and knowing where to put our attention. “Energy flows where attention goes,” is a saying from researcher David Icke. Jupiter direct is time to take what we’ve realized — what’s being created from this attention — and use it to make wise choices.
Gemini is siblings, extended family, roommates, schoolmates, neighbors and acquaintances in your loop. “Astrology King” Jamie Partridge looks at Jupiter retrograde and sees it’s at the exact point of the November 2012 lunar eclipse. Jamie writes, “The theme of that eclipse was karmic rebalancing. The theme of the Jupiter retrograde cycle is karmic issues involving female family members and close friends.”
This is the time when Jupiter will reveal the true magic of mutable Gemini, in direct to end of June, when there’s a move into Cancer.
More Possibilities with Jupiter Direct (in Gemini):
Moon in Cancer! 4 days of emotional waether until saturday! Words are useless during this time Geminis, hugs and kisses are much better! Spooning is ok too! Great vibes for water signs and water moon signs!
Happy New solar year! Hope you had a happy and fun new year! Mine was full of vodka, karaoke and friends! Never mixing those up again! Saturn not bothering so much these days, but that’s probably because of all the other planetary alignments that are affecting me: many planets (including Mercury) in Capricorn lately (wich means we’re definitely entering the last part of the Age of Aquarius), and they are all making me feel more confortable with my responsabilities tbh. Capricorn, as you know, is ruled by Saturn, so i’m feeling very saturnian at the moment. (Many post about Saturn coming this week, too!). I also re-launched my astrological blog in spanish again, you can check out here. And i’m totally going to the Jamiroquai concert in Lima, in february! (what can i say, i’m a 90s kid!) Also, Jay is a Capricorn, which fits perfectly with my Saturn Return. Oh, and Leo boyfriend says hi.
About our sign: Jupiter goes direct january 30th. So the best part of our ‘comeback’ (which started in june 2012) is about to start this month! Jupiter in Gemini represents optimism, growth, generosity, joy, and abundance for all of us in 2013. This transit heightens our optimism and generosity, and the entire cycle has the potential for being a relaxed, fortunate, and hopeful time in our life (Jupiter rules good luck and travel!). What happened in the past is not very important now, the future is at our doorstep! Hidden proyects coming to light, the definitive use of all of our talents!, etc. Jupiter can bring endings into our life in order for us to grow, although these are generally easy ones (unless of course, you’re going trough your Saturn Return too) Keep in mind that a carefree attitude is different than a careless one, and the fine line between the two is definitely something to consider. Finally Jupiter rules our solar seventh house, so this transit will difinitely bring a partner into our life, or a current partnership will be boosted. Happy 2013 Geminis! I’ll be back, Love, I.
This could be a turning point month on several levels. First, it seems your finances are being rearranged and possibly renegotiated. You may not know where you stand until the end of July, or August, but that is OK for now. Go with the flow, and have faith you will be steering things in the right direction. One source of income may be coming to a logical finish, such as when one project ends and a new one begins. Don’t let this concern you, especially if the new source of income hasn’t shown up yet - it will. You’ll have plenty of cosmic help in months ahead, and many new offers will be coming your way. Your only aim should be: 1) not to spread yourself too thin, and 2) to choose among the ones with the very best potential.
On July 19, you will have a wonderful financial new moon, in Cancer, 27 degrees, that will have the power to correct any cash flow imbalance you experienced earlier. I love this new moon because it has the support of Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus - quite a powerful gang of three! Uranus will surprise you in a happy way by bringing opportunity out of the blue, Jupiter will bring generous potential, and Mars will give you the energy to follow through on opportunity that arises. A new moon is a beginning or portal to a new way of living, but you have to be part of all that happens by having meetings and showing you are eager to get a raise or new business (if self-employed).
Saturn, now at 24 degrees in hard angle, will stand in the doorframe and try to block some of the joy and optimism that will be prevalent. He will remind you that you have obligations, so while you can’t quite spend the money all on yourself, you will be able to send off checks to those you owe, and that alone is calming. Moreover, this is a new moon - a portal - to a more lucrative future. While it’s clear that you have considerable responsibilities to others, you can meet them, and you can grow your income.
On another note, there is more big news this month. Mars is about to change signs for the first time since November. During that time, you’ve had to host this feisty planet in Virgo for an unusually long time, an earth sign that is a bit heavy for such a light and airy sign as Gemini. In Virgo, Mars kept your attention pinned to domestic and family matters. You may have set up plans to move or renovate, or were charged with the care of a beloved elderly parent. Or, on the other hand, it may have been that you felt your home life had become chaotic, and it proved challenging to return it to calm while you were hosting the warrior planet there. All that changes now.
From July 3 onward, you won’t have to spend as much time directing things at home. Mercury rules your solar fourth house of home, but this month Mercury will be retrograde from July 14 to August 8. To be honest, you are already feeling Mercury’s slowdowns when out of phase, and it is not a time to sign a contract or to buy electronic appliances, computers, or gadgets. In fact, it would be best to wait.
If you say you absolutely must sign a contract or launch a product, do so during the first week of July 1-7, but stay far away from the day Mercury turns in for a nap, July 14. You will get a superb opportunity in mid-September. Let that be the moment to make your biggest initiations.
Mercury will retrograde in Leo, and that means it will be IN your solar third house of communication, making this a double whammy. You see why I am feeling that you must be careful, because conditions are shifting, and the criteria that you might use under the present conditions may not work later. That’s what makes operating under Mercury retrograde so perilous. You won’t be able to tell yet that things are shifting, because everything seems so normal. Sit tight until after August 8. Remember, as a Gemini, Mercury rules your sign - it is your power planet. It is Mercury that gives you your finely honed intellect and superb ability in writing and speaking. Be glad you have Mercury as your protector. When Mercury rests in retrograde, you may want to rest too, by taking things down another notch.
Over the recent years, instead of having cosmic help, you’ve been under pressure from Saturn to learn about love while you searched for love. Your lessons are almost over, for Saturn leaves Libra on October 4, not to return to this house for 29 years. You are done. Saturn is famous for being fond of giving life lessons in whichever house he happens to be visiting, in this case, love. If you were taking the wrong track in love, you’ve had much tutoring from Saturn by now, and you probably know which patterns have sent you off course. Mars’ entry to the fifth house of true love will bring what has been lacking - pure energy - and excitement too.
All month Venus will be in Gemini, a great advantage, for your magnetism will be sky high. Jupiter will travel within three to five degrees from Venus, boosting this gorgeous love planet with plenty of oomph. Jupiter in Gemini is considered the number one advantage for matters of the heart. In this rare period of your life, finally all the pieces of your puzzle are coming together.
One weekend I’d like to point out to you is July 21-22, when Jupiter in Gemini will receive magnificent vibrations from genius planet Uranus, currently based in your house of hopes and wishes. These two planets will not be conversing again until September 25, 2014, so it is as rare as it is special. This aspect, is one of the bright features of 2012, and it’s happening now! This will add a boost of hope and optimism. Something may now happen that demonstrates to you that no matter how difficult the trials and tribulations that you’ve faced, you can’t stop believing in miracles. A long-desired wish might now be yours when a lucky break happens. See what comes up, dear Gemini.
#Gemini: Full Moon in Capricorn: here comes the other point of the truth. Because being honest is not only not telling lies, it is also not hiding some facts. Don’t deny your passions! Don’t be ashamed! Because if you see something as a weakness, you won’t discover how much of a strength it can be. Full Moon will make you give yourself or give something up, something of material value to open up to your own emotional flow. A personal liberation. Giving something up, something that cost you a lot to build, but that is priceless if you think what comes ahead. It’s the end of fear, of manipulation, of guilt, of doing more to compensate. This has been building up for too long, but now you can see it clearly: you’re free to go, to remove yourself energetically from a situation.
Your month under the sun ends like it started: with a new moon in your sign. Why is the universe giving Gemini two chances like this? Think for a while in everything that happened in between: 2 eclipses, Venus transit, Jupiter in Gemini… This past two years Gemini has been an outcast for carrying around the south node, which works like a sewer for karma . You lost everything you were holding on to, because a new life was waiting for you, and it starts now. This is a second chance for letting the past behind, without guilt and regret. No matter how hard you resist, new people and new ideas are arriving to your doorstep (chances are, they’re already here). Many of this comes through journeys or contact with unusual or excentric people, but you Gemini are a novelty junkie, so it’s alright. If you still feel this is all happening too fast, is because your ruler Mercury is fighting Saturn right now, but once it enters Leo next week, it will be time for your ideas to shine like a Leo rockstar. In the middle of the week, the Sun enters Cancer and another door opens, this time to liberation, to stop depending so much (Cancer = $) on mom or dad, and to finally be able to do what you want and with whoever you want.
GEMINI: Sun in your sign, is time to shine! The first day of Sun in Gemini, a solar Eclipse announces a year of fast changes, no time to wait for the rest and don’t even think to limit your talents and urges to fit in. You’ll see the difference between what you wish for and what you tought you wished, and this will put many things in action and in the right time. The place/ person you want to be with is not out of reach, you just need to see it from other point of view, and with a differennt type of pressure. Let your look and actions speak louder than your words. Your SELF fills with energy (Eclipse energy), so there will be a noticeabe change in your appeareance. You will understand your nature a little more and you will learn to earn the vitality and peace your body needs. Self loving.
This year is diferent not just because of the Eclipse (whose energy and effects will be around for 6 monts), but because your ruler planet Mercury, enters your sign on May 24th and then Jupiter, while Venus is sweeping the past away. It has begun.
