What does this Transit of Jupiter mean for you…


There is a major astronomical as well as astrological event happening today. Movement spells change and significant movement of heavyweight planets spells bigger change. The heavyweight planet of our solar system Jupiter, the mentor of Gods – Guru will move into the sign of Gemini or Mithuna on the 31st of May 2013 and will stay in that sign for the next 13 months.

What does it mean?

Jupiter is saatvik energy, a benevolent planet that rules over justice, wisdom, auspicious events and good fortune for each individual. Since Jupiter is such a significant planet, that determines the foundations of life and decisions of individuals; combined with the fact that it stays in a zodiacal sign for a long duration of 13 months, the impact on life will be significant too and also quite specific. What the coming 13 months augur for each sign, would depend on the transit from natal moon, the sign it is transiting through, houses ruled etc.

As Jupiter steps into the dual sign of Gemini, ruled by Mercury, individuals can expect that the wisdom and maturity of Guru will blend with the incisive and persuasive communication of Mercury. Now whether this combination can work wonders for an individual or indicates caution – to watch against smart-mouthing for ones own interest will depend on where Jupiter transitsfrom natal moon and whether it will be auspicious or trying.
