Jupiter in Gemini: Busy Be

by Jessica Shepherd June 28, 2012 01:34 AM EST
Jupiter has entered the sign of the Twins. You'd think it'd be an occasion for a grand literary party, great travel plans, or at least a new set of wheels (Gemini rules movement) but in reality, Jupiter’s entry into Gemini also heralded its square Neptune in Pisces (June 11-June 26). With the planet of expansion at odds with the planet of vision, no matter how great the vision, things just fell apart because people were on vacation, bleary eyed from insomnia or lacking the proper motivation. Personally, I’d get going on a project only to fizzle out…I heard stories from clients about plans dissolving, as if someone (Neptune) deflated a balloon. Jupiter was also applying conjunction to the Neptunian South Node. Double ugh.

Now that Jupiter's past that pesky square, let's get on with a proper Jupiter in Gemini transit, shall we? Jupiter is the planet of expansion, fortune, growth and possibility and during this transit luck comes through Geminian endeavors: communication, social networking, experimenting, inventiveness, spreading the word, education. Authors, communicators, educators (and Gemini born), all are favored by Jupiter's goodwill. We may experience a surge of optimism around all novel and new ways to socialize, inform, market, educate and connect.

However, Jupiter is in the opposite sign of its ruler (Sagittarius), so is in detriment in Gemini. Gemini's shadow is scattered-ness, running around in circles, seeing every truth as relative, immaturity, all of which dissipates Jupiter's ace ability to put a grand plan into motion. And Gemini is indeed the sign of commerce and busy-ness, which is good for business. Until... Gemini pulls us in multiple directions, seduces by the overwhelming possibilities of what this information age can do for us, yet get no closer to an executable plan. We can get lured into a good idea but as easily sidetracked by another. These are the risks with this transit.

Like an electional chart cast for the beginning of a cycle, Jupiter's immediate mash up with Neptune tells a story. We certainly need vision for our lives, and the planet, but we are also very easily sidetracked. With attention bouncing from Facebook to Twitter to smartphones to... it's easy to be. The way through the rabbit hole is right here and now. I plan on following my curiosity, being excited by techie sparkles and newness, but not so it keeps me from the present moment, a walk in nature, journaling or blessed sleep. My point is (and I do have one here) we need down time to incubate our dreams, and even moreso with Jupiter in busy be Gemini. I am going to try my best to be present. I hope to see you there.
