Jupiter in Gemini

Jupiter in Gemini or Jupiter in Relation to Gemini

(from Esoteric Astrology)

1. Jupiter in Relation to the Synthesis of Soul and Spirit:

“When the Jupiter influence becomes strong and powerful in this sign [Gemini], it indicates the initiate and the rapidly attained ‘dualism in synthesis’ of soul and spirit.” (EA 365)

2. The Spiritual Dualism of Jupiter:

[Jupiter in Gemini is] “…in detriment or its influence is lessened. Why this is so, is, esoterically speaking, one of the secrets of initiation. The clue to the mystery lies in the basic, spiritual dualism of Jupiter in contradistinction to the body-soul dualism of Gemini; in Sagittarius, the dualism of Mercury as it expresses itself in the lower-higher mind is transcended by the universal or spiritual mind. More than this hint is not at this time possible.”(EA 369)

3. Jupiter in Relation to Gemini—Focusing the Ray of Love-Wisdom:

“The theme of that ray [the fourth] is ‘Harmony through Conflict’ and it is the lower aspect of the ray energy, producing conflict which has hitherto controlled, this climaxing now through the impetus of the new incoming Shamballa force. As it exhausts itself (and this is rapidly coming about) there will be a shift of direction and force to that major ray, the second Ray of Love Wisdom, of which the fourth ray is an aspect. This second ray energy is very potently focussed through the constellation Gemini via the planet Jupiter. We shall then have the inauguration of a long cycle of beneficent development in which the conflict essential to the interplay between the dualities will be stabilised upon the mental plane and under the influence of the salvaging, serving egos of the fifth kingdom—entirely change world civilisation.” (EA 328)

4. Jupiter, Gemini and the Conscious Integration of Soul and Spirit:

“Through the activity of Mercury, the man whose Sun is in Gemini is aided to attain the synthesis of soul and form; through the activity of Jupiter, the man whose rising sign is Gemini is enabled to attain the conscious integration of soul and spirit. Note these two points for they are of real significance.” (EA 365)


Specific Expressions of Jupiter in Gemini

1. Jupiter (in Gemini) in Relation to the Three Personality Vehicles:
Jupiter in Gemini increases the mobility of the physical vehicle, and the “area covered” by this vehicle. This combination also contributes to the youthfulness of the body through increased lung capacity and a greater oxygenation of the blood. Within the body of sentiency (the astral), there is a capacity to reduce the struggle between the pairs of opposites on the astral plane and resolve them into two interplaying aspects of one whole.

At the initiation of the astral body (the second) Jupiter is prominent (EA 70), as is Gemini (GWP 271, EA 157); through the planets Jupiter, Venus and Neptune, the conflict between the pairs of opposites will be reduced and one-pointed, aspirational orientation towards the light established. Jupiter in Gemini naturally expands the associative power of the lower mind, its power to synthesize information, and its capacity to contribute to the understanding of the interplay of the pairs of opposites as they express in various dimensions.

2. Jupiter (in Gemini) in Relation to the Personality as a Whole:
Jupiter in Gemini leads to a diversification of abilities within the personality. Negatively there may be “too many irons in the fire” or “a finger in too many pies”, but, positively, multiple talents, and the ability to function successfully in many contrasting spheres of activity. An accented Jupiter in this position gives the tendency to “know it (Gemini) all (Jupiter)”; negatively, this can lead to conceit; positively to encyclopedic knowledge (especially if reinforced by Mercury and Saturn, to ensure factual accuracy). This combination encourages participation and is a counter-indication to isolation; it serves to weave the personality and its energies into life’s amazing fabric of diversity.

3. Jupiter (in Gemini) in Relation to the Fusion of Soul and Personality:
This combination expands the interplay between soul and personality, making them more and more a part of each other. Esoterically, and at a sufficiently advanced point of evolution, Jupiter is active in the fusion of soul and Spirit (EA 365), but even with respect to the relatively lower fusion of soul and personality, its heart-stimulating magnetism is useful.

The extensive consciousness of the soul (influenced by the pure reason of buddhi) descends into the personality consciousness, broadening its horizons, and rendering the personality an animated participant in an increasingly vast transpersonal vision, and in an ever-widening range of transpersonal activities. Once the vision of amazing possibilities has been conferred, the personality does not wish to return to its former limitations, but rather, to continue breathing (Gemini) the expansiveness (Jupiter) of the soul in the One Soul. The wider life is far more interesting; the personality, inspired by soul vision, is ever more open to communication with the source of that inspiration.

4. Jupiter (in Gemini) in Relation to the Synthesis of Human Dualities—Head/Heart; Mind/Love; Will/Wisdom:
In relation to such pairs of opposite, the “work of Jupiter”, we are told, “ is to develop these two qualities and bring them into synthetic interplay.” (EA 126) Gemini always promotes a fluid interplay between the opposites, and Jupiter is the force which “brings all together”. (EA 126) Jupiter promotes wholeness, and when placed in Gemini, promotes wholeness through what might be called ‘bi-polar inclusion’ or ‘the inclusion of the poles within the sphere’. In the field of “universal or spiritual mind” to which Jupiter is related (EA 369), the intuitive formula for uniting the two is understood.

5. Jupiter (in Gemini) in Relation to the Means by which the Expansion of Consciousness may be Sought:
Expansion of consciousness may be sought by honoring and embracing the diversity of life. The vast network of relationships is revealed under the influence of this combination. No relationship is excluded; no connection is considered irrelevant. Consciousness is open, and it is increasingly realized, that “everything is related to everything else”.

6. Jupiter (in Gemini) in Relation to the Fulfillment of Desire and the Satisfaction of Demand—
1) initially, fulfillment for the little self; then
2) fulfillment of desire for the good of the whole—a fulfillment achieved through the outgoing expression of love: With this combination, the lines of communication are open, and the network works. Abundance flows towards the desiring one through the many lines of connection established. He knows where to find what he wants, and how (by what channels) it can reach him.

The disciple or initiate with Jupiter in Gemini, desires that abundance and benevolence shall characterize the entire network of relationships. His attitude is beneficent and brotherly. He sees how all are related for the Good and in the Good. By promoting the free flow of benevolence through all available channels, what he wants and needs comes to him, by law, for redistribution to the whole (thus initiating another cycle of generosity and abundant return). “To those who give all, all is given.” (DINA I 692)

7. Miscellaneous Meanings of Jupiter in Gemini:

a. For the Jupiter in Gemini person, one of the key means for expanding consciousness is through the acquisition of a diversity of knowledge and perceptions.

b. For the Jupiter in Gemini person, there will be a growth of understanding through the assimilation of a wide variety experiences

c. Under Jupiter in Gemini, both “Brothers” wax in strength and scope—especially Pollux, the ‘higher’ brother. (cf. EA 126)

d. Jupiter in Gemini can indicate that the two “Brothers” are fused, thus liberating access to the “pure reason” of the intuition.

e. If, under Jupiter in Gemini, there is a fusion of spirit and soul, the initiate will live in, and be aware of, the homogeneity of the spirit and the extensive variety of consciousness—simultaneously.

f. Jupiter in Gemini will indicate a broad proliferation and diversification of interests.

g. Jupiter in Gemini contributes to the fusion-in-understanding of all opposites. We might call this the ‘philosophical fusion of the opposites’.

h. Negatively, Jupiter in Gemini, may indicate the scattering and energies and forces and the doing of too many things.

i. Negatively, Jupiter in Gemini, may indicate a preoccupation with the growth of the concrete mentality

j. Negatively, Jupiter in Gemini (with Jupiter in Taurus) may indicate “the suffocation of the life” through over-accumulation of knowledge. (cf. EH 299-300)

k. Negatively, Jupiter in Gemini may contribute to the free and permissive reign of Castor, the lower of the Geminian Twins.
