All aboard for le voyage fantastique! Worldly Jupiter ends a four-month retrograde in Gemini and your surreal twelfth house this Wednesday, January 30. Divine inspiration begins to flow again and your slumbering artsy side awakens. Pull the paint set, guitar, poetry journal, or video cameras out of cold storage. Theres a masterpiece bubbling in you thats ready to come forth. Youve had Jupiter in this part of your chart since June 11, 2012and lets get real: it hasnt been the easiest time for you. Why? Well for one thing, Jupiter in the twelfth house is a highly nomadic phase best used for backpacking across Europe or taking a sabbatical in a hut on a Tanzanian beach. But youre the zodiacs homebody, and pulling up the stakes on your life is not something youre apt to do. Plus, you need certainty to feel secure, yet everything feels more liquid than solid since the summer. At times, you may feel like Dorothy getting ripped away from Auntie Em by the forceful gale of the tornado. And while you may have landed in some beautiful, Technicolor Oz, its an unfamiliar environment, which always causes you agita. Breathe, Cancer, breathe. Jupiter is teaching you the power of surrender while it remains in Gemini until this coming June 25. Your resistance to change is being swept away and youre going to learn so much about yourself in the coming five months. Like a giant cosmic spotlight, Jupiters been illuminating many of your buried psychological blocks since last summer, your fears and anxieties. While Jupiter in the twelfth is definitely a time for healing, its methods are not subtle. And with the planet in retrograde since October 4, you may be feeling rather raw and vulnerable. Get the support you need over the coming five months, be it a great mentor, a wise spiritual counselor, or a whip-smart therapist. And take heart: Jupiter in the twelfth house is a time when many people meet their soulmates. As you release your fears, your most pure and loving self emerges. Theres no better state to be in than this when it comes to magnetizing The One. If you met someone who left you breathless last June, only to find the connection fading when Jupiter went retrograde in October, your second shot at love could be in the stars between now and June 25. Or, you could meet someone with his/her qualitiesbut even better! Attachment is not going to be rewarded by Jupiter now, so stop obsessing over the package you want your dream lover delivered in and keep an open heart. The universe will bring whats best for you. On June 25, Jupiter will enter Cancer for a year, making all this struggle well worth your while. Youll get a chance to hit the restart button then and the changes you make in the second half of 2013 will be epic. Until late June, however, keep focusing on what you need to shed. You can think of the next five months as a giant cosmic detox. In spite of all this, the travel bug may indeed bite before the week is through. This Friday, February 1, go-getter Mars decamps to Pisces and your jetsetting ninth house for six weeks. A trip to the tropics or a B&B within driving distance could be just the thing to rejuvenate you, especially if the getaway includes using your scuba license or relaxing before a stunning view of a lake. (You ARE a water sign after all.) Or, you may choose to travel in the figurative sense, signing up for a self-awareness seminar or local retreat that centers around soulful subject matter. Loveplanet Venus also switches signs on Friday, moving into Aquarius and your intimate eighth house until February 25. An unspoken connection could explode in an intensely passionate (and highly secretive) love affair. While you prefer your privacy, clandestine encounters will break your heart. Leave the unavailable types alone, even if they are the sexiest things youve seen in years. Your 2013 Valentine can be a really special soul if you choose wisely, possibly even someone whos been lingering in the friend zone for a while. For the next few weeks, Venus wants you to enjoy your sensuality AND your self-worth. If you havent been feeling at home in your body, start incorporating more movement into your days. Walk instead of driving those few blocks for your coffee, eat lighter foods, take regular dance breaks throughout your day (they work, we swear it!). You might even try a burlesque workshop or a pole-dancing class like S Factor that helps you get in touch with your own erotic creature. Meow!
