Jupiter Enters Gemini: The World In Your Hands

Big planet Jupiter is on the move this weekend which is big news. Jupiter is the biggest planet in the universe and the best planet in astrology. The big planet takes twelve years to circuit the zodiac bringing its blessings to each of the twelve star signs in turn. 

In mythology, Jupiter was a Sky God, linked to expansion, benevolence and protection. Jupiter is the planet which represents travel, foreign connections, higher education, religion, the law, truth and justice. It’s where you seek meaning and purpose in life, the bigger picture. Jupiter is the planetary archetype that reminds you to trust, be hopeful and have faith.

Jupiter Enters Gemini 

Jupiter enters Gemini on May 26th for the first time since 2012/2013. This is great news if you’re a Gemini but potentially good news for everyone, depending where Jupiter falls in your horoscope. Jupiter isn’t going to dip in and out of Gemini either and will remain in Gemini for one whole year until June 9, 2025.

The last time Jupiter was in Gemini was 2012, the year of the Olympics in London. London is a Gemini city, so it’s appropriate that the biggest and best planet Jupiter was in Gemini when the Olympics took place in London. Plus, Jupiter rules foreign connections and, when the global planet was in Gemini, people from around the world came together in a major event in a Gemini city.

The World In Your Hands

The fact that London is a Gemini city is fitting for place that’s a diverse melting pot of different people, cultures and boroughs. Geminis are communicators who thrive on variety and are always on the move.

One of the most famous quotes on London, “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life” by the 18th century author, Samuel Johnson, picks up on the Gemini buzz. 

Multiculturalism is a key theme for Jupiter in Gemini and it’s currently a hot topic, not always for the right reasons. The world population has exploded over recent years and the plight of refugees is ongoing. Immigration is a charged political topic and what’s right and wrong often divides opinion. 

Once Jupiter’s in Gemini, you have the world (Jupiter) in your hands (Gemini). It’s an ideal time to travel overland, learn a foreign language, embrace a new religion, discover a new culture and share your brilliant ideas and vision to help make the world a better place.

How It Works

There is a caveat, however, because Jupiter is in detriment in air sign Gemini. This means that Gemini is not Jupiter’s favourite star sign. This is because Jupiter’s about the vision, the bigger picture. Jupiter craves growth, meaning and purpose.

As a planet, Jupiter loves to embrace any experience that’s potentially life-changing, whether this comes through travel, self development, education or a spiritual or philosophical quest.

Gemini is a dual-natured sign and rules words, language, gossip, reading, writing, the media, education, transport, short trips, neighbours, siblings & twins – a diverse group. 


This is where we get to the crux of Gemini because this star sign is nothing if not the ultimate multitasker. Gemini loves variety in life but, with a short attention span, can find it hard to focus on any one thing for too long.

Gemini skims through life seeking new stimulation on a daily basis. When Jupiter’s in Gemini, the journey is often more important than the destination.

Turn your focus towards your mental faculties and social interactions, learn bigger and better ways to take in knowledge and pass it on. Everyone’s an expert at something and anyone can write reams at a touch of a button with Artificial Intelligence in full flow. 

Life may feel like it’s speeding up once Jupiter leaves earth sign Taurus and enters air sign Gemini. It may become more important to manage your time well, learn to delegate and keep a sense of humour at all times. Jupiter in Gemini is great for the hype but not the substance.

Just as Jupiter in Gemini can be witty, quick, diverse and dexterous, it can be distracted and aimless too. Remember to stop now and again and check in with the bigger purpose of what you’re doing and where you’re heading. 

At its best, Jupiter’s influence is jovial, fortunate and lucky. Therefore, wherever Jupiter goes, you’re wise to follow as this is where opportunity lies. Whatever begins under a Jupiter transit promises success.

The Air Sign Era

The Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions take place every 20 years and are a symbol for what lies ahead. The last Jupiter/Saturn conjunction was in December 2020 and fell at 0° Aquarius, right at the start of this air sign. This was momentous because it was a ‘Mutation Conjunction’. 

This means we are at the beginning of a new 200 year cycle when the Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions will fall in the air signs, Aquarius, Gemini, Libra. The last Jupiter/Saturn conjunction fell at 0° Aquarius in December 2020.

The planet of transformation Pluto moved into air sign Aquarius in March 2023 and will take up residence here for the next twenty years in November 2024. Jupiter is moving into an air sign Gemini from May 2024 to June 2025 and next year, rebellious Uranus will enter Gemini in July 2025 where it will be for most of the subsequent seven years.

The element Air rules ideas, the sharing of information, networks, social connections, communications and technology. The World Wide Web (WWW) began in 1989 during a rogue Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Libra, an air sign. Since then, social media, cell-phones, global connections and online networks have exploded into our world.

The covid/lockdown years gave us more of a clue about what this new era may entail. The information superhighways took over from physical travel. Businesses swarmed online with Zoom meetings and virtual software. Many skills that have been done by humans are now being replaced by robots and automation. Artificial Intelligence is a buzzword with its awesome abilities and its obvious dangers to creativity and mankind.

Space too is opening up with more countries investing in space travel – the ultimate ‘air’ adventure. Air represents breath, so maybe we will have to learn to live with new airborne viruses over the next 200 years. The new ‘air’ era promises changes to the collective at a political, social, humanitarian and environmental level. 

This could be an exciting time for science, space travel, New Age thinkers, social activists, pioneering leaders, inventors, visionaries, rebels and innovators. Also, astrology and spirituality, the New Age way of doing things, community and the collective, there’s going to be a significant shift towards these initiatives and ideas and the way people seek meaning in their lives. 

Yet, the new era must be about finding what connects us as human beings rather than what divides or separates us. More people will be turning to the universe to find answers. It’s a new paradigm, an era when new solutions, rules and visions are required. This is true on a collective level and in your personal life.
