Welcome to “Starcast” – a delightful look into what the Cosmos has in store for the 12 sun-signs. Let’s see where we are, here on Earth. In the USA, there’s just been a holiday called Thanksgiving Day, with origins that trace back to the harvest celebration staged in 1623 by the Pilgrims of Plymouth, MA. And it was George Washington, the first president of the United States, who declared Thanksgiving Day as an annual holiday in 1789. Through all of this, our solar system has blithely advanced; magnificent and unrelenting is its own dynamics. To that point, the planet, Jupiter (good fortune, namely, Lady Luck), entered the vivacious sun-sign of Gemini, the Twins, last June 11, 2012. And its abundant journey will last until June 25, 2013, when it enters the captivating sun-sign of Cancer, the Crab (absolutely, a “Starcast” for another time).
Noteworthy: This is a powerful planetary placement. Because whichever one of the 12 sun-signs you are, this vital planetary transit affects you directly, since the mercurial-thinking Gemini governs one of the twelve houses within your own birth chart (also known as the zodiac wheel). And this whimsical sojourn of the planet, Jupiter (forever, Lady Luck), through Gemini, the Twins, promises to include the surfacing of good fortune and delightful developments that only you will know what to do with. Still, since Jupiter is synonymous with abundance, you’ll have to be aware, think in detail, and stay focused – on whatever, and whomever, strengthens and advances the content of your Life. Now, relax and have fun – but know that this isn’t a game. And that’s worthy of note.
Look at a numerical (1 through 12) clock. That’s your birth chart. And each pie-shaped wedge (5 to 4 o’clock, for example) is a house – an area of activity (love, money – in every currency imaginable – work, and so on) in your Life. Know that this influence (Jupiter in Gemini) is constantly at work bringing you new possibilities and great opportunities.
Here’s how the planet, Jupiter (Lady Luck), going through Gemini, the Twins, affects the 12 sun-signs within the 12 houses of the zodiac wheel.
[ARIES] March 21-April 20
The 3rd House: Expressing Yourself. And with Lady Luck permeating everything you think, write, and/or say – initiate whatever good thing comes to mind. Make calls, send e-mails, and definitely, text. A fast and consistent pace is best! SIDESTEP confusion and uncertainty.
[TAURUS] April 21-May 20
The 2nd House: Your Income, Possessions, and Lifestyle. Stay very close to a daily schedule that you can rely on, since new, out-of-the-blue, and exciting partnership possibilities could distract you. Believe in facts and figures which are your guidelines. SIDESTEP being hard to reach.
[GEMINI] May 21-June 20
The 1st House: Your Personal Efforts. Leave no stone unturned in your quest for a fabulous new lifestyle structure. Know that the worthwhile elements you now attract into your personal world, will set the tone for years to come. SIDESTEP questioning your own remarkable intuition.
[CANCER] June 21-July 22
The 12th House: Private Matters and Secret Strategy-Planning Sessions. What you develop now – in the way of ideas, outlines, concepts, and plans – opens the way to a very positive future for you. And for anyone else associated with you. SIDESTEP clinging to outdated methods.
[LEO] July 23-August 22
The 11th House: Your Secret Agenda – which contains the priceless desires-of-your-heart. There’s so much to be gained now, on all levels – if you keep your own counsel. And press on without revealing everything to everyone. SIDESTEP skimming the surface of important documents.
[VIRGO] August 23-September 22
The 10th House: Your Career and Its Advancement. Here, excitement now exists – and you would be wise to welcome it in your own elegant way. Join in, be approachable, and listen well. This is one cycle in which the audience belongs to you. SIDESTEP any hesitation about making calls.
[LIBRA] September 23-October 22
The 9th House: Contacts, Plans, and Projects – near and at a distance. Don’t hesitate to add a generous serving of your own glamorous nature to whatever long-range plans are now developing. The future is destined for success. SIDESTEP not following through on recent commitments.
[SCORPIO] October 23-November 22
The 8th House: Revitalization – mental, emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual. Two elements now permeate this sector: laughter (yours) and whatever good thing (person, place, or thing) is new and fresh. Stay with these two elements – and you’ll be reborn. SIDESTEP disinterest.
[SAGITTARIUS] November 23-December 21
The 7th House: Agreements and Special Arrangements; even, the Sought-After Contract. New possibilities and extraordinary people are certain to present themselves. Your role is to evaluate everything and to decide, finally, what works best for you. SIDESTEP a lack of attention-to-detail.
[CAPRICORN] December 22-January 19
The 6th House: Your Work and Its Content. Included, too, are your relations with co-workers and associates. You’ll delight in the laughter and the sheer fun of it all. Some fences will be mended – and some important work will actually be done. SIDESTEP concern about trends.
[AQUARIUS] January 20-February 18
The 5th House: Close Ties, Creative Matters, and the Spirit of Speculation – taking a chance. The existence of Jupiter in Gemini is precisely what you need, as the promise of overwhelming success is now very real. And very close. SIDESTEP the sarcastic remark – yours or someone else’s.
[PISCES] February 19-March 20
The 4th House: Home-Related Matters, which include both where-you-live and where-you-work. Know that desired conditions can be established now – that at another time – seemed impossible. This is absolutely the right time. Go for it! SIDESTEP a refusal to let a past dispute dissolve.
