Jupiter Enters Gemini: In Search of Distraction

We wander for distraction but we travel for fulfillment.”
-- Hilaire Belloc

If you thought life was already ridiculously hectic and filled with more distractions, sidebars and multi-tasking than the human brain can handle, think again. Jupiter entering Gemini -- the sign synonymous with attention deficit -- is sure to take the concept of distraction to a whole new level.

Duality, paradox and contradiction are part and parcel of life, and now that Jupiter is entering the sign of the Twins, more than ever. Jupiter is the planet governing our philosophical approach to life. Gemini is a sign of versatility and multifaceted ideas. When these two converge you can expect an excess of mental activity and conversational debate -- either with others or between our own inner contradictions. Jupiter is actually in its detriment in Gemini because of the dispersive effect of the sign, which does not gel well with the magnanimous and “big picture” energy of Jupiter.

All of those little Gemini details get exaggerated and it’s easy to end up suffocating in an exaggerated experience of worry and anxiety. Over-thinking is the danger of this influence as the mental realm takes priority over Earth, Fire or Water. We now need to balance the intellect with our feelings, intuition and needs of the physical body. This is certainly an entertaining and stimulating time akin to being tuned into a radio talk show 24-7. Dogma, preaching and stagnant ideologies will not hold up under the mercurial genius of Jupiter in Gemini.

Flexibility in our thinking is a must now. Gossip may also ensue as the chatty and catty nature of Gemini becomes exaggerated under Jupiter’s influence. A more positive benefit of this transit includes the love of learning and appreciation for the power of words. Instead of just taking words as gospel or ideologies for granted, the Gemini influence reminds us to look into the small print and the details that have been conveniently left out of the story.

Choosing a side has never been more challenging. It’s all about the dance, the word-play and the paradox when harnessing the quicksilver energy of Gemini. How do these seemingly irreconcilable opposites (big ideas versus heaps of details) help expand our consciousness? If we can manage to temper the A.D.D. tendencies of Gemini, use the detail-oriented focus of the sign to debunk dogmatic tendencies and poke holes in big ideas that are grounded in anything useful or truthful -- then we will reap the more positive side of this influence. Experience must back-up theory or we are just living with blind faith or embracing empty concepts.

Gemini knows the right questions to ask in order to make sure the story holds up. The next year is about using the details and versatility of Gemini to get to a bigger truth and broaden our experience (Jupiter).

It is easier to perceive error than to find truth, for the former lies on the surface and is easily seen, while the latter lies in the depth, where few are willing to search for it.”
