Jupiter Pushes His Luck

Who are the lucky ones? Often we assume that the people we admire are somehow happier than us, experiencing life more vividly as they lead glamorous, problem-free lives. Of course, that’s usually not true. Tomorrow’s opposition of the sun and Jupiter is already challenging your ideas about what it means to be lucky.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It seems that even inanimate objects like to be appreciated. A prize goes to you, namely because you’re the only one who sees it as a prize. This also proves that your imagination has magnetic properties.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Others feel comfortable and safe around you. Maybe it’s all the emotional strengthening you’ve done over the years. You know you can handle your feelings, so you’re not afraid to be open.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Jealousy is a normal human experience and can be healthy as long as you don’t focus such feelings obsessively on one person. Let a twinge of jealousy teach you about what you want, and then focus on your own scene.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Stay ahead of the trend. Your powers of observation are sharp, and suddenly you will see a clear way to improve upon yesterday’s work, styles and habits. It’s a new day, and you’ll be doing things differently.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Right now you could be feeling uncharacteristically shy. You’ll probably have to force yourself to start a new conversation or post your picture to a profile, but do it! The world needs to see you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll notice the person who makes an extra effort to see or talk to you. You’re not imagining it. This person is smitten with you. If the feeling is mutual, this is heavenly news. But more likely, you’re not sure how you feel just yet.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Share your story even if you don’t think it’s very interesting. Of course it wouldn’t be to you, the originator. But others will find your journey fascinating.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). No good can come of comparing yourself to your idol. So why bust the good momentum you’re building? Instead, enjoy looking up to another person as you work toward becoming a better version of you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Stay at it. You will fail many times before you succeed, and it should be that way. Otherwise, you won’t be ready for the big leagues. So commit and work in a way you can be proud of, win or lose.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There’s a lot of competition in your world. Instead of wasting time trying to show that you’re better, you really become better by hunkering down and doing the work that needs to be done.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll take action and put yourself out there in a big way, mostly because the “out there” in question is a place you really want to be. You get the sense that it’s where you belong.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Just because someone else shows up with the goods people like doesn’t mean it’s a reason for you to pack up and go. Stay and contribute. There’s always room for more excellent talent at the top.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 1). You’ll often be with people you enjoy, doing what makes you happy. What could be better? In the next six weeks, family makes you proud and gives you due credit, too. Responsibilities increase in January; put health and safety first, and all goes well. Finances perk up in February. Wedding bells ring in May. Taurus and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 14, 38, 2 and 24.

CURRENT ASTRAL BACKDROP, JUPITER IN GEMINI: The Big Daddy of our solar system dwarfs the other planets. Earth could fit inside Jupiter 1,000 times. And yet for all his girth, he’s still incredibly fast. A day on Jupiter is fewer than 10 hours of Earth time. So his reputation for gestures both swift and grand and for the deluxe life in the fast lane is perfectly aligned with his larger-than-life qualities.

As Jupiter transits through Gemini, where he’ll be until June of 2013, his largesse is focused on the realm of communication. It is easier than ever to communicate in an increasingly connected world — so easy, in fact, that we sometimes forget to craft our communication in order to present our ideas and identity in the best light. Pushing “send” takes a fraction of a second, but the consequences can be long lasting. This is the lesson of Jupiter in Gemini. The path is paved for reaching out, but we should not forget that the quality of our connections is determined not by the smoothness of the path, but by our choices. The wise person resists the temptation to communicate en masse and instantaneously, preferring to take a moment to ensure the message is valuable, thoughtful and from the heart.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: As much as Sarah Silverman loves to make people laugh, she’s also compelled to push further into comedic territory than some people want to go, making her as provocative as she is hilarious. Sagittarius is the sign of the super-explorer, the boundary pusher, the trailblazer of unknown territory. Silverman was born when the sun, Mercury and Neptune were in Sagittarius.
