JULY 2000- JULY 2001 JUPITER IN GEMINI
In general the expansion in the world will be mental in this timeframe: many new ideas and new contacts are likely to happen which could become serious and binding due to Saturn's sojourn through Gemini as well. You may both be optimistic as well as apprehensive, but this last tendency is not particularly due to Jupiter, but to Saturn following Jupiter in the sign of Gemini. The world of telecommunications will see both expansion (Jupiter) as well as legislation (Saturn) in this timeframe no doubt.
The last time Jupiter was in Gemini was from July 1988 till November 1988 and from March 1989 till July 1989 by the way: you may reflect on these timeframes and think about how you expanded with reading, getting to know people and maybe writing. or learning a new language.
If you are a Gemini than the passage of Jupiter through Gemini from July this year up until July 2001 will start a new phase of expansion for you. As a Gemini (and if you are true to its promise) you are a networker, and mentally always on the move. Your life is about information. This new cycle may be a start of a cycle where your gifts could be given a wider meaning to the social world around you. It may be time for you to start thinking about a mode to share your view with others in a meaningful way. For the time being: entertain this thought and experiment with it, the cycle you are starting now will last 12 years and you do not have to choose exactly the right way to go about it yet.
If you are a Taurus, then your new cycle started already earlier this year: you are already seeing some results of your new visions that were grounded into reality some time earlier. Your first results will come to you by means of an expansion of social contacts and feedback of these: which could give you the promise of success if your views and ideals that you started really are worthwhile for a larger community as a whole.
If you are an Aries, the year 1999 started your new social cycle in life and you will find this phase of Jupiter in Gemini particularly expansive: going here and there, and communicating your visions and ideals everywhere. You are truly expanding, mentally and otherwise and open to all kinds of new horizons that seem to widen for ever right now, just to give you as many options if possible, options that you only need to choose and narrow down sometime after July 2001.
If you are a Pisces the Jupiter passage through Gemini will mean that information will come to you now, maybe by reading a book, or because you are travelling here and there and everywhere and no longer getting anywhere, that will force you to make a definite choice as to which path you are going to pursue from now on. The new cycle that started some four years ago for you literally needs to find solid ground, mostly so in your mental mindset or in ways which have to do with communication: they provide the basis for the rest of this cycle of relating your views socially to a larger whole.
If you are an Aquarian the Jupiter in Gemini passage will mean a tremendous flow of thoughts and creativity. There will be expansion all over vis-a-vis your ideas and you are starting to really belief in yourself right now. You are creative and are given many many opportunities, it will be almost difficult to choose. But most of them will (potentially) lead to success and put you at the start of really peaking in the present 12-year Jupiter cycle, discovering that your talents are working, which you will share and make valuable to the world at large in later years. You are still in a phase of self-expansion!
If you are a Capricorn you will find yourself in a phase of cutting down now, after you had the expansion for quite some time and saw results (due to you) everywhere. Since Jupiter is in Gemini, your need for cutting down will mean that those communications and contacts that are not leading anywhere, will be cut down. Ask yourself what is really useful and do away with all things that were fun for experimenting with, but not part of your plan in life. If you do not consciously choose to cut down something yourself, you may be forced to do so, because you will start to feel uncentered and more and more out of control of your time otherwise.
If you are a Sagittarius, the transit of Jupiter in Gemini will be in opposition to your Sun, which is a seventh house phase to your Sun. This implies that it is time to open up to a larger world and rather than imprinting your environment with your ideas, learn the game of give and take in the exchange of ideas. Learn to LISTEN, which is something, I think anyway, that is Sagittarius'lot in the first place now that Pluto is in the sign of Sagittarius too, uplifting (potentially) all things Sagittarius'. OPINION no longer is of this world, it is of ego, and true insight and wisdom can only come from having learned to listen, and to make your visions applicable to a larger whole. Learn to interact with others more and more during the sojourn of Jupiter in Gemini. Even chatting may be fun for you who usually abhors any conversations without meaning. However, the thing is, try and give of your insight and wisdom in such a way as that it is relevant for other people too. In other words: learn to communicate, simply by doing it.
If you are a Scorpio, your best bet in the coming time is to do the same, and also learn to communicate. Open up, and don't worry about small talk, for a change. It may not always feel comfortable for your introvert nature (introvert about yourself that is, as you usually pry into other's deeper beings:-), in short, learn to communicate with others in the coming months. It will refresh your inner mindset, all this air being brought into your watery soul, it is as if your soul will be oxygenated and wishes to renew itself with life by learning to be less afraid to be part of a communicative world. Make sure you feel safe on the internet, and more importantly, have respect for those you are in contact with and make sure they feel safe too.
If you are a Libra, than you are in for expansion in the months ahead. Socially speaking you will meet many new people, many new countries or languages maybe even, and you will have a great time, because you are a person whose heart is in social groups or in relating in one-to-one situations. Take up a new course, now is the time! Make plans to travel, expand your horizons and incorporate some ideas from other cultures. Read about Buddhism, Hinduism, or Native American Indians, anything which inspires from a spiritual point of view, the Gemini-way: by reading up on it.
If you are a Virgo, your best chances in the coming month is to understand that you are intelligent and apply this knowledge by sharing, small or large, i.e. just of a helpful nature or write out your thoughts and communicate them with others. It will tend to be a very mental world in the next half year to 12 months, and for you, this wil apply professionally. You are at a peak moment of your professional life (potentially), and are likely to see results coming your way, especially professionally speaking, or careerwise. If you are offered chances in your career, don't let them slip by, take them up!
If you are a Leo, you are likely to find yourself amidst all kinds of group-situations where you will need to learn to share and to inter-act, not always from your own point of view, but also from others'. You are in an expansive timeframe though, all things that came your way professionally speaking in the last months are now to be enlarged and shared with a larger whole, a world outside of yourself in an ever expanding way. It is likely that you will meet some new friends too in the coming year.
If you are a Cancer, you are in the last phase of the Jupiter-expansion cycle this Jupiter-year. Next year (after July 2001) will be the year of the new, a new start in your social life, but this Jupiter-year (July 2000-July 2001) you are finalizing a social cycle. This may occur by way of dissipating your energies, and learning that life is not about holding on, but about sharing. You wil learn the virtue of relativity too, potentially. The more you let go and interact with others outside of your own homesituation, knowing that the entire planet is your home and that you really cannot loose anything, the better this year will be, even if you see no results. You are unconsciously preparing for a new cycle, if possible on a less painful and more socially useful level in the next Jupiter-cycle.
