Jupiter Enters Gemini for the Next Year and Squares off with Saturn in Pisces


 

Hold on because Jupiter is about to move into Gemini on May 25, 2024 until June 9, 2025.  Jupiter is not at its most comfortable in the mutable air sign of Gemini because it rules the opposite sign of Sagittarius, but all in all, it should not be that bad. Think back to the last time that Jupiter was in Gemini: June 11, 2012 through June 25, 2013.  You just might note some similar themes.  Social media became more prominent back then and I have no doubt it will again.  Jupiter loves to expand whatever it touches, and let's face it, Gemini is all about communication and learning.  We are talking serious mental expansion. When Jupiter is in Gemini, we can attract more good fortune if we are open-minded, versatile and curious.  Jupiter in Gemini will be especially fortuitous for writers as communication will flourish. Pursue your dreams in whatever area of life Jupiter in Gemini is touching.  Jupiter in Gemini starts in my 8th house, will conjunct my Moon in early August and then move into my 9th house.

Jupiter in Gemini will also be squaring Saturn in Pisces on August 19 in 17 degrees of their respective signs and again on December 24 in 14 degrees.  We will start off 2025 under the influence of Jupiter square Saturn.  I happen to have my Moon in 14 degrees of Gemini, so I am interested in seeing how this one plays out.  This aspect is bound to create some tension between boundaries and structures. There will be themes of heaviness and responsibility limiting us creatively.  People and circumstances will test our faith and optimism.  We could experience massive frustration because we want to move forward but feel like someone is putting the brakes on.  Further complicating this is the fact that Saturn is retrograde in Pisces from June 29, 2024 through November 15, 2024.  Saturn stations retrograde at 19 degrees of Pisces and goes direct in 12 degrees of Pisces.  We have some major conflict here: Jupiter wants creativity and fun, while Saturn's forte is self-discipline and responsibility. Criticism from others is likely to surface.  Saturn will move into Aries in May 2025 and Jupiter will move into Cancer (where it is exalted and quite comfortable) in June 2025, setting us up for another Jupiter-Saturn square on June 14, 2025 in the cardinal signs of Cancer and Aries. This one should see more action as cardinal signs love to initiate and stir the pot.

I have written more extensively on the transit of Jupiter in Gemini in an article on PowerFortunes.com.  You can check it out with a brief overview on how it affects each of the signs at:


We have a couple of other interesting astrological phenomena occurring in the coming week.  On May 27, Mercury in Taurus will be sextiling Saturn in 18 degrees of Pisces.  Sextiles are favorable and supportive aspects that tend to present us with opportunities.  Mercury sextiling Saturn will deliver clear thinking, good judgment, self-discipline and our organizational skills should be at their peak.  So make the most of this day...

On May 29, Mars and Chiron will be conjunct in 22 degrees of Aries.  This will be a very intense aspect because it shows us what we need to do take action on to heal our wounds and acknowledge our vulnerability.  Remember to treat your wounds with compassion on this day. Try to act in a self-caring manner. This can ultimately be a very cathartic time that will reap huge benefits for us emotionally if we act mindfully.

The coronavirus outbreak caused me to increase the number of distant Reiki sessions I do because people were concerned about the spread of the infection. I have decided to suspend my in-person Reiki sessions until further notice, so all of my Reiki sessions will be distant Reiki sessions for the foreseeable future. But a distant Reiki session is the perfect opportunity to safely build up your immune system and if you have contracted coronavirus, you can be treated safely from the comfort of your home. My procedure is to have a conversation with a client about what they hope to achieve from a session, we set up a time for the session to take place when they will be in a state to receive healing energy and I follow up with a telephone conversation to discuss their experience and my perception of their blockages. I do miss seeing my clients, so I am now offering Zoom consultations/intakes before the session so that we can see each other. I have also incorporated a new technique with my distance Reiki treatments since I don’t always have a photo of my client.  I use a teddy bear so that I can scan and focus the healing energy where it is needed. If this appeals to you, please feel free to contact me by email at lindasim54@gmail.com or call me at 617-304-2205. The cost for distance Reiki sessions is based on a sliding scale of $30 -$50. For your convenience, I accept Venmo and Zelle for payment. Zelle payments can be sent using my telephone number

617-304-2205. I have also written an article about distance Reiki, which is available at:

Another Active Week as the Sun and Venus Move into Gemini and A Full Moon in Sagittarius


 

The month of May is indeed zipping along quite merrily.  Mercury moved into Taurus on May 15 after spending over two months in Aries due to that lovely Mercury retrograde that we had in April.  But Mercury in Taurus will be squaring retrograde Pluto in 2 degrees of Aquarius on May 17, which can manifest in some deep thinking and intense interactions.  Aquarius loves to get to the truth of the matter and I wouldn't be surprised if some secrets came to light.  People can also be somewhat defensive with this aspect and many of us can be inclined to force others into buying our way of thinking, especially with both Mercury and Pluto in fixed signs.

On May 18, Venus and Uranus are conjunct in 23 degrees of Taurus.  This will generate much change and excitement with love and/or money.  Spoiler alert--it can trigger impulse spending.  If you are single, you could meet someone new, but don't expect it to last.  This is a day when we are drawn to the unconventional and quirky, which is not always the stuff of permanence.

The Sun and Jupiter are also linking up in 28 degrees of Taurus on May 18.  This is a real feel-good aspect, full of optimism, good cheer and luck.  When the Sun and Jupiter converge, it tends to expand the area of life that it touches.  This only happens once a year, so make the most of it.  Whatever you start on this day should have a positive outcome.  So enjoy the day of May 18 because we have Venus, Uranus, the Sun and Jupiter all hanging out in Taurus, which is ruled by Venus.  It should be a fun day and could even be profitable for some.

The Sun moves into the mutable air sign of Gemini on May 20.  The focus shifts to seeking knowledge, diversity and socializing.  This is also an ideal time for marketing and public relations as our words are more persuasive now.  The shadow side of the Sun in Gemini is a tendency to be more scattered as we can be fickle with all of the choices we face.

The Sun in Gemini is trining Pluto in 2 degrees of Aquarius on May 22.  This can enable positive transformation through intense and profound experiences as we have more power and influence in our lives.  It's nice when Pluto experiences a positive aspect and we have certainly had our fair share of challenging aspects to Pluto since it entered Aquarius.

Another big day is May 23.  We have a Full Strawberry Moon in 2 degrees of Sagittarius.  Why is it called the Strawberry Moon?  Well, according to the Farmer's Almanac, the name comes from Native American tribes that harvested strawberries at this time of year.  This could actually be one of the happiest and most joyful Full Moons of the year.  For starters, it is in the sign of Sagittarius, which is all about honesty, wisdom, and the big picture.  Jupiter rules this Full Moon as the ruler of Sagittarius, so it has strong themes of expansion, optimism and the potential for legal developments.  As an added perk, the Full Moon in 2 degrees of Sagittarius is forming an exact supportive sextile to Pluto in degrees of Aquarius, adding a sense of empowerment and visionary zeal to the mix. It's going to be a very high energy day filled with the exuberance that Sagittarius is associated with.

Venus and Jupiter are also conjunct in 29 degrees of Taurus on the Full Moon.  These planets are known as the Great Benefics, so success, luck and abundance are present.  And Venus is in its home sign of Taurus, so it's a very happy camper.  When planets are in 29 degrees of a sign, they are in the anaretic degree and it indicates completion of an important phase of our lives.  This completely ties in with the theme of harvest on this Full Moon.  Jupiter in Taurus is also sextiling Neptune in 29 degrees of Pisces on this day, which is very spiritually enlightening.  This aspect can bring more harmony, growth, good fortune and enhance creativity.

Venus moves into Gemini at 4:30pm on May 23 and stays there until June 17.  Venus in Gemini is fun-loving, flirty and carefree. Our hearts can be won through the mind during this transit as there is an intellectual edge to love now.  It's also possible for friends to become lovers.  Dating becomes more of an adventure as variety and spontaneity are calling the shots.  And we can be quite fickle and prone to spending money on a good time.  Venus in Taurus was great for saving money and building up security, but Venus in Gemini does not share that priority.  

The month of May also features Jupiter moving into Gemini.  I know most of us are still processing the effects of the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Taurus, but if you would like a sneak peek at how Jupiter in Gemini will play out for you, I encourage you to read my latest article on Jupiter in Gemini at:

Change is in the Air as the Sun and Uranus are Conjunct in Taurus and Mercury Enters Taurus

 



We are thick in the heart of Taurus season, especially with the New Moon in Taurus having occurred on May 7.  On that day I posted:
Uranus in Taurus is not through with its change-making action quite yet.  On May 13, the Sun and Uranus will be conjunct in 23 degrees of Taurus.  This aspect screams change and has a theme of the urge to break free from humdrum routines that feel stifling to us.  Unexpected change, freedom and rebellion are all on the agenda for this day.  Don't resist the change that will probably be thrust upon us, but I caution you not to take any unnecessary risks either or rebel against authority just for the sake of rebelling.  It should be an exciting day filled with unconventional occurrences.  It can be a time of reinventing the wheel, so to speak.

If you have any planets in 21-26 degrees of the fixed signs of Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio, you will feel this energy quite intensely.  I have my Venus in 24 degrees of Scorpio and my Pluto in 26 degrees of Leo, so this will be activating my natal Venus-Pluto square.  I have been having the feeling that the month of May would be bringing big changes for me and this Sun-Uranus conjunction in Taurus could be the instigator for me.

Venus in Taurus is also forming a supportive sextile to Saturn in 17 degrees of Pisces on May 13.  This will cause us to crave companionship, but the Saturn influence assures that we want it to be serious and committed in order to fulfill our needs.  This is not the aspect that encourages a light-hearted fling.  Venus sextiling Saturn is also favorable for conducting business transactions, paying off debts and starting a savings plan.

We have one other cause for celebration on May 13.  Mercury finally clears its retrograde shadow in 27 degrees of Aries.  How can we forget that Mercury stationed retrograde in 27 degrees of Aries on April 1?

Mercury enters Taurus on May 15 and remains in Taurus until June 3.  As you can see, Mercury has regained its momentum and is cruising at full speed.  Mercury was in Aries from March 9 and was a major player in eclipse season as it was retrograde during the Solar Eclipse in Aries on April 8 and had already entered its retrograde shadow period on March 19 to have an effect on the Lunar Eclipse in Libra on March 25. 

When Mercury is in Taurus, our thinking and communication becomes more grounded, practical and down to earth.  Common sense will prevail after the impulsiveness of Mercury in Aries.  We will also have more patience with Mercury in Taurus.  It's a perfect time to solidify plans and get focused.  We are more purposeful, but be mindful that the shadow side Mercury in Taurus is a tendency to stubborn and inflexible.  But overall, the transit of Mercury in Taurus should be a welcome relief after the drama of Mercury in Aries that included eclipse season and Mercury retrograde.  I don't know about you, but I found that having Mercury retrograde in Aries seemed to make people more impatient and likely to fly off the handle.

I want to wish all of the mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day on May 12.  The Moon will be in Cancer on that day, and it will be sextiling the Sun, Venus and Uranus in Taurus while trining Saturn in Pisces, which should make it a pleasant day. If you need a thoughtful gift for your Mom, please consider giving her an astrological consultation, tarot reading or distance Reiki session with me.  Just email me at lindasim54@gmail.com or call me at 617-304-2205.

The month of May also features Jupiter moving into Gemini.  I know most of us are still processing the effects of the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Taurus, but if you would like a sneak peek at how Jupiter in Gemini will play out for you, I encourage you to read my latest article on Jupiter in Gemini at:

Taurus Season is in Bloom with a Potentially Fertile New Moon in Taurus


 

Taurus season is about to get a lot more busy.  We still have the Sun, Jupiter and Uranus in Taurus and Venus entered Taurus on April 29.  On that day I posted:
And we have a Super New Moon in 18 degrees of Taurus coming up on May 7.  But before that, on May 3, we have Mars in Aries sextiling Pluto in 2 degrees of Aquarius.  Pluto just stationed retrograde on May 2.  How is Mars in Aries (its home sign, where it is strong, by the way) sextiling Pluto in Aquarius going to play out? Mars in Aries will provide us with the courage and energy to get rid of what isn't working in our lives so that we can move forward and transform.  Mars in Aries will also add a sense of urgency to the matter and set the stage for the New Moon in Taurus.

The New Moon in Taurus features five planets in Taurus: the Sun, Moon, Venus, Jupiter and Uranus.  New Moons are a perfect time to set new intentions and plant the seeds for a fresh start.  The themes associated with Taurus include safety, security, stability and values.  It is a very sensual sign to boot because it is ruled by Venus.  The New Moon in 18 degrees of Taurus will also activate the recent Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in 21 degrees of Taurus that occurred on April 20.  If you didn't experience any sudden changes or expansion on that day, rest assured that this New Moon will reactivate that energy. The Jupiter-Uranus conjunction kicked off a whole new cycle which will be in play for some time.  So the promise of freedom and growth in our lives is alive and well.  This New Moon is inviting us to plant the seeds for our intentions to take root and manifest.

The New Moon in 18 degrees of Taurus is making some promising aspects.  It is trining Ceres in 21 degrees of Capricorn.  Ceres is the dwarf planet associated with nurturing, motherhood, fertility and agriculture.  With both the Sun and Moon in an extremely favorable aspect to Ceres, we have an opportunity to make some real progress in these areas of life.  If you are trying to conceive or develop alternative food sources, this is a cosmic green light.

Saturn in 17 degrees of Pisces is also featured prominently in the astrological landscape of this New Moon.  The New Moon in 18 degrees of Taurus is forming a supportive sextile to Saturn, which bodes well for creating stable foundations in our lives.  I always appreciate it when Saturn is cooperating with lunar phases and the planets in general.

Mercury in Aries is conjunct Chiron in 21 degrees of Aries on the New Moon too. The aspect is exact on May 6, but we will still be feeling its influence on the New Moon. This represents an opportunity to dig deep into our wounds and listen to our feelings so that we can identify where we self-sabotage.  A conjunction in Aries gives us the courage to be vulnerable and heal those wounds.

I have no doubt that May will be a very active month astrologically that reinforces the theme of endings and beginnings but I also sense that there is more hope and less trauma involved than the months of March and April.

On a personal level, this New Moon is opposing my Sun in Scorpio in my 2nd house and my progressed Sun enters the sign of Aquarius on May 3.  I am quite relieved that it is finally leaving Capricorn, no offense to any of my Capricorn readers.  I am just looking forward to being able to embrace the freedom and originality of my personality.  It is very liberating to leave Saturn's influence behind and welcome Uranus into the next chapter of my life.

The month of May also features Jupiter moving into Gemini.  I know most of us are still processing the effects of the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Taurus, but if you would like a sneak peek at how Jupiter in Gemini will play out for you, I encourage you to read my latest article on Jupiter in Gemini at:

I am still experiencing technical difficulties with the Buy Now buttons on the Services Offered page of my site.  In the meantime, please feel free to send payments through PayPal to my email at lindasim54@gmail.com. Just let me know which type of consultation you want with your birth date info.  Or you can send a payment to my Venmo account at Linda Simons @Linda-Simons-7 or Zelle using my phone number 617-304-2205.

In 2020, I added a Monthly Horoscopes section to my website. May horoscopes are up now and I now have a link to my monthly forecasts at Horoscope Junkie.  Check it out at:

The coronavirus outbreak caused me to increase the number of distant Reiki sessions I do because people were concerned about the spread of the infection. I have decided to suspend my in-person Reiki sessions until further notice, so all of my Reiki sessions will be distant Reiki sessions for the foreseeable future. But a distant Reiki session is the perfect opportunity to safely build up your immune system and if you have contracted coronavirus, you can be treated safely from the comfort of your home. My procedure is to have a conversation with a client about what they hope to achieve from a session, we set up a time for the session to take place when they will be in a state to receive healing energy and I follow up with a telephone conversation to discuss their experience and my perception of their blockages. I do miss seeing my clients, so I am now offering Zoom consultations/intakes before the session so that we can see each other. I have also incorporated a new technique with my distance Reiki treatments since I don’t always have a photo of my client.  I use a teddy bear so that I can scan and focus the healing energy where it is needed. If this appeals to you, please feel free to contact me by email at lindasim54@gmail.com or call me at 617-304-2205. The cost for distance Reiki sessions is based on a sliding scale of $30 -$50. For your convenience, I accept Venmo and Zelle for payment. Zelle payments can be sent using my telephone number

617-304-2205. I have also written an article about distance Reiki, which is available at:

I urge everyone to engage in massive amounts of self-care and follow the protective measures of washing your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, wearing a face mask when necessary and staying home if you are sick. And get a vaccine. The newest vaccine is available and I encourage you to get it to protect yourself. I repeat, you do not want to get this virus! I speak from personal experience and consider myself very fortunate to have survived Coronavirus twice. Stay safe and healthy, everyone!
