After being retrograde since early October, Jupiter goes stationary direct on January 30, 3:37 am PST, 11:37 am UT. Many things will finally move forward on Jupiter’s tide, so get ready to be a good juggler as you take new faith and skill into the world!
Jupiter entered Gemini June 11, 2012, and moved forward through the first 17 degrees of that sign until it went retrograde October 4 at 17 Gemini. Since then we’ve retraced the degree span back to 7, and now prepare to launch a third pass over this field of experience. This has opened us to new information, new views, new promise, or new horizons wherever we have 7-17 Gemini in our charts.
When Jupiter entered Gemini, it also meant that since then, wherever we have Sagittarius or Pisces has been in exploratory or discovery mode. We reached a threshold of our Jupiter in Gemini experience in early October, and then the energy receded, or slowed to see different angles of viewing that promise, idea, or broader view. Now we move forward.
It’s been the beginning of an entirely new cycle for everyone born in early June or those who have an Ascendant in the first half of Gemini. Since September, it has thrown people born in early March, June, September, and December into a search for a new self-expression, purpose, or service. Steer the momentum and keep the initiative! This has offered a new stability or understanding for those born early February and October, and a new productivity for those born early April and August. There were other effects for other birthdays, but that’s beyond the scope of this post.
Since October when it went retrograde, we’ve been learning all kinds of Jupiter-ruled lessons and skills related to 17 Gemini. As it’s in the decan ruled by Venus and Mars, we’ve been dealing with dilemmas involving values and desires, gain and loss, solidity and flow. It has opened us all to new ways of viewing dilemmas and dualities, and we’ve had to come to a balanced view of that which we have been able to capture and that which we haven’t.
In part 2 we’ll examine more about Jupiter’s degrees and Sabian Symbols, and how this stationary direct “pulse” is activating other pulses in the past that will become much stronger again.
Here’s what I wrote in October about what we could expect from the recent Jupiter retrograde period:
