 JUPITER MERCURY and VIRTUE by Dosso Dossi  circa 1530’s 


As MERCURY rules both Gemini and Virgo it is an opportune time to think and converse about your highest goals, as symbolized by the North Node and expand and work out and on your ideas about your work, health, education, being of service and your daily routine.

At 15-16 degrees this aspect also squares Saturn in SAGITTARIUS and NEPTUNE in PISCES as well.

Are you truly following what you feel is your highest path of service in your work? Work is what we all do daily to earn our daily bread of which Virgo is very much a literally a part of, symbolizing the grains and the hard work to harvest it.

Are you working in an environment that feels right and healthy?

Listen to your body as well as your mind.The body never lies. Yuor work can be contributing to making you sick and Health is the most valueable thing you can have.

Are you working just for a paycheck or is your heart into it? The question is: If you weren’t getting paid to do your work would you still be doing it? 

Virgo is meticulous, practical, humble, hard working, the bodies wisdom, your literal gut instincts. Any ongoing indigestion, constipation and other such ailments can be caused by environmental, diet and stress related factors. Time to change your diet, you may need to eliminate and cleanse. Find out what works for you. Natural medicine is better for this. You can also get live blood cell testing for allergens but be forewarned you will likely be allergic to almost everything. 

Take a walk in nature and connect your breath with your body today. Meditate with a tree. Put your spine against the tree. In your mind ask the tree’s permission if it is willing to work with you. This is out of respect for the tree. Trees are highly conscious. Align your breathing by doing yogic slow natural inbreaths and breathing out through your nose. Lean into the tree and feel how it is so rooted and yet bends with the wind. Ask this question internally. “What is the highest way I can be of service in the world in my work?” Keep breathing, enjoy the connection with the tree and listen. You will find and answer, a vision or a feeling to guide you. 

VESTA is the Goddess of inVESTments. Invest in your self and your health. Virgo is the sign of all natural healing herbs, and naturopathy, ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, homeopathy, wise woman and indigenous herbal traditions.

Invest in eating right. We switched to organic chicken years ago. We rarely eat fish because of the high radiation and Mercury poisoning. Eat only Atlantic and Ecuadorian or Caribbean or English fish. We plant a small organic garden every year for the last 19 years and grow organic veggies.

I personally never follow the western heroic medicine model. I abandoned it over 40 years ago. My entire family and i virtually never take pharmaceutical meds, or antibiotics. I am a big advocate of natural medicine, vitamins and eating organic foods and birthing. We aren’t perfect but I try to be mindful. 
Pay attention to how green your work and home environments are and make any changes to improve these starting with throwing out all commercial cleansers, laundry detergents, toothpaste, hair products,etc. Also be aware of  harmful off gassing from synthetic carpeting, new furniture, MDF and new houses, etc. 

Gemini rules the lungs, they are many chemical pollutants that most people use daily without thinking which damage everyone’s health long term. Asthma is severly on the rise because of chemical in everything including your food. GMO’s are terribly hazardous and should be labelled and abolished.  Companies like Seventh Generation have been around for many years their products have integrity. 

You will have more discipline and it will be more fun and easier to accomplish these goals with Jupiter’s expansive help. Think about how to balance your work and your social needs.
This energy may also force you to look at the REALITY versus the multiple ideas that Mercury in Gemini brings. Stay very practical. It is what is real and you can hold in your hands that counts right now.


This inconjunct aspects always feel like nails on chalkboards, the squeaky wheels, the feuding families. Be careful of getting pulled into debates and arguments about politics and powers structures.
Use this aspect to watch how our minds and ego gets wrapped up in their specific viewpoints to justify it’s “superior” positions. This can be a big conscious breakthrough in your thinking. You are ready to learn on a higher level.
Some people speak of this as Ascension.
I would use this aspect positively by focusing on your dreams, As Pluto rules the Unconscious, and ask for your dreams to reveal your next step in consciously growing.  When you wake up record any dreams or sensations.
