Jupiter is back in your sector of foreign people and places (and travel in the mind). Gemini, a new opportunity has surfaced since July. Yet, it is not without its challenges. I’ll bet you are not prepared to just let this go, though. There is too much to gain. If you get the feeling that this could be ongoing in 2022, 2023 and even further, though – you are correct. This option on the world map is there.
Education, travel, publishing, academia, the worldwide web and a new life in a new place – all of these life options are now on offer to you, for the first time in twelve years. What is unique about this transit with both Jupiter and Saturn, though, is the sense of learning the hard way, since Christmas 2020.
In fact, your chart suggests that you have been given two opportunities with these life areas (above) and one fell absolutely flat, while another has never really taken off. Now, there is a third. It’s up to you to decide if you’re going to imitate the Stranglers and Walk On By. You could keep walking – of course. However, it looks from your horoscope as if you have not been given hard lessons about particular situations, organisations or people for no good reason. You need to use those aspects of 2021, to date, which might have let you down – so you can take yourself higher.
The educational or academic process now might be formal, so you may be attending workshops or seminars, or taking evening classes, or making a commitment to a degree course. Alternatively, you will learn in your own way, at your own speed, and this will probably involve much reading in your own time, and a sizeable amount of web surfing or discussion.
I don’t even need to detail the impact of the pandemic on foreign travel, foreigners, and so on. It really goes without saying. Saturn and Jupiter in unison tend to present as the change, the challenge and the reward. I’m not going to mince words, though. If you persist with this/them/he/she in 2022 it will be a very long rope ladder to climb and an extremely difficult tunnel to crawl through. But by 2023? Well, what you began way back in August 2021 will transform you and empower you.
Publishing (and associated areas, like the mass media, or the web) will also offer you a chance to move forward now. You could touch a great many new faces in a vast range of new places, if this is the case. Libran author Graham Greene used this cycle to resign from his job at The Times newspaper, in order to become a full-time published author, on October 7th 1929. Pisces musician George Harrison organised a benefit concert for Bangladesh with Indian musician Ravi Shankar during this cycle on 1st August 1971 and put India on the map – also cementing a lifelong connection with its people. Those are a couple of examples of people who pursued this Jupiter Ninth House transit in a very particular way. Now, let’s look at the Virgo weather.
The Virgo weather which rolls in August sets you up for a new beginning in September, when you could easily renovate, redecorate, overhaul the garden, reshuffle the household, rethink the family, or even take larger steps with your town or country. If you have Cancer (Fourth House) factors in your personal birth chart then a couple of difficult moments in July might have led you to promise yourself you’d get onto some changes in August and September.
Even without that (or if you do not know your birth chart) you are still looking at an annual review of your mortgage or your mother. Your tenant or your bedroom. Maybe, your national identity or local origins, culture, heritage or roots. This transit can be quite emotional. Not so much about the kitchen cupboards, say, as a powerful set of feelings tied to where you come from, or where you belong. The Sun in Virgo will illuminate, expose and highlight who and what matters most, Gemini, so you will make a solid decision by September.
