It’s been hard enough having Jupiter debilitated, but the retrograde has also been affecting our sense of financial security. And then there’s the issue of communication. Has it felt like some kind of perpetual Mercury Retrograde of misunderstandings, delays, setbacks and other communication debacles?

This may also be a reflection of Jupiter transiting in the opposite sign of his home turf. Jupiter prefers big ideas and an expansive outlook, so being forced to contend with all of the little details, gossip, duality and other forms of trickery that Gemini likes to employ could make the big guy a bit grumpy, to say the least.

The good news is that the area in which Gemini resides in your birth chart is about to have the block lifted as Jupiter goes direct on January 29. Jupiter can exaggerate the area of concentration, so although generally optimistic you may also feel like this area of your chart is being magnified, for better or worse. But unlike Saturn, you won’t feel stuck with the issue in an ongoing, long-term manner. Jupiter likes to cut to the chase so he can get to the next bigger and better vision.

Communication continues to be an area of importance for all of us. Use the wisdom and honesty of Jupiter to weed out any double-talk, duplicity, backbiting, gossip or other adolescent forms of verbal expression that only serve to sabotage your integrity and position. It’s fine to be playful with words but make sure you mean what you say and say what you mean ... even if there is the inevitable Gemini paradox.

Mental neutrality and flexibility are also key to maximizing this transit. Dogma won’t fly because Gemini will expose the hypocrisy and the double standards in a hot minute. We all carry inner doubles, splits and other forms of being hypocritical, and you can expect that the “put your cards on the table” energy of Jupiter will not let even the most clever forms of duplicity go unnoticed. Playful is fine. Humor is great. But dishonesty is disastrous now.
