The planets listed below, Jupiter and Saturn are the slower moving planets and affect you over the period of a year or two. The even slower moving planets - Pluto, Neptune and Uranus effect you over a 7 - 14 year period. The faster moving planets that affect you over the period of a month or so are Venus, Mercury, Mars and the Sun and are listed under the monthly horoscopes. And then I use the really fast moving moon that stays in a sign for a couple days to write the daily horoscopes and weekly horoscopes. I have indicated the date the energy changes.

Use this link to go to the new Jupiter Moving Through The Signs Calendar. Remember, Jupiter is the fat, expansive, lucky, extra blessings, fortunate, adventurous, exciting, higher thought, gypsy traveling, cup over flowing planet!
Jupiter is all about ABUNDANCE and EXPANSION! Jupiter in Virgo is moving through your 12th house of spirituality, the hidden realm, past and karma; and there is a HUGE possibility that you will benefit in these areas. Jupiter is often referred to as the planet of luck, but I prefer to call it the planet of "extra blessings." If you ever heard the phrase, "What you focus on expands," this is exactly how Jupiter operates. Whatever Jupiter touches then it grows and expands but you have to remember WHATEVER Jupiter touches, it will grow and expand it. Jupiter operates much like a balloon where it blows up like a balloon 'whatever' it touches, which means it has the ability to blow something up so big that it can pop it like a balloon. For instance, it can pop something like 'popping the question' or it can pop a relationship that is already on the rocks. Again, whatever Jupiter touches it grows and expands. This is also much like someone winning the lottery. If the individual cannot handle a little money to begin with, then they sure as heck will not be able to handle lottery winnings. This is where you must focus on what you want to expand because this balloon wants to blow something up so big that it pops (you receive a breakthrough) or it pops and something is forced into change. As another instance, if a relationship is already difficult and challenging, then the relationship will likely pop and reach and end (change).
Abundance and expansion are taking place in your favor behind the scenes and all you have to do is keep moving forward. There is a bit of a caution here. Since the 12th house is about the hidden realm, then whatever you have been hiding from others will probably be seen by everyone. It would be best to handle this in a mature fashion and take responsibility so that you can get on with the abundance part of this aspect. Refrain from fear when Jupiter hits this house because once that thing is released then expansion takes place because you had been restricting your Life. This tendency in this 12th house is to self-restrict but I urge you to confront that which you fear and you will see that fear fell away with its own weight. BAM, just like that it was really nothing. Jupiter is Saturn's opposite planet. Where Saturn restricts, Jupiter expands. There is a lot of relief that you will be feeling while Jupiter moves through this 12th house, so do not even pull out the worry card or you will delay your own abundance. Remember, Jupiter is the 'abundance elf'. Because Jupiter is moving through your 12th house of the hidden realm, this aspect is actually working for you behind the scenes. Even though you may not actually see the "abundance elf" working for you right now, doesn't mean the elf doesn't exist.
This house also represents your mother's second husband (if she had a second husband). If this man exists, then you would be able to gain from the relationship in several ways. Maintain your readiness when opportunity strikes. You will begin to see the Truth for what it really is even though you may not be able to explain it. The subconscious mind is being effected and you will learn a lot about yourself. This will give you a new found courage to explore and delve into your mission and passion in Life.
Your biggest abundance and benefit will come to you through the organizations and things that the 12th house rules, which would be hospitals, institutions, government organizations, charitable organizations, even jails and prisons. Do not let this scare you because even jails and prisons are a business and require contracts. Just keep an open mind.
You may feel more charitable to organizations that had not previously touched your heart. Make certain that you use your head when giving your money away. Since Jupiter is fortunate and about benevolence, philanthropy and abundance; this is what causes you to identify with those who are unfortunate or less fortunate. Your heart just goes out to people.
Since the 12th house is the hidden realm and what goes on behind the scenes, you may be more interested in astrology, mysticism or things that would normally not interest you. Your mind definitely e-x-p-a-n-d-s with Jupiter present. While your benefits may not be seen, you will definitely know that they exist. It will be clear to you.
If you are coupled-up, make certain that you push your partner to take better care of their health. If the 6th house rules your health, then the 12th house would rule your partner's health. They may have more health issues that they had in the recent past. This does not mean anything other than what it is. The more responsible they become, the better and easier it is.
This 12th house is naturally ruled by Pisces, which rules the Ocean and you just may find yourself standing at the edge of the Ocean this year. Oh yes, it can and will probably happen sometime during the Jupiter influence.
Refrain from gambling and risk taking unless of course you are in a 'business' that this is normal. Such as entertainment, gaming (casino), etc., because then it's all business. If you feel the need to gamble, then do it on a day when the Moon is in Sagittarius.
Now make Jupiter in Virgo really personal and check your Natal Chart to see how it is affecting you personally rather than as an entire sign or schedule a personal 15, 30, 60 or 90 minute reading with me to learn how to work this energy to your maximum advantage.

Use this link to go to the new Saturn Moving Through The Signs Calendar.
Let's think about Saturn for a minute. Saturn is all about structure, discipline and building. Saturn REALLY LOVES IT when an individual is self-disciplined and becomes structured on their own without being prompted to do so. Let's not forget that Saturn has a belt (rings) around it; therefore, Saturn has no problem whatsoever taking off its belt and spanking your ass, sending you to your room or grounding you to house arrest if you insist on acting like a juvenile and not assuming personal responsibility. Wouldn't you reprimand your own child if he/she acted out and didn't do their homework? Doing our work here on earth is Homework, with a capital "H". Saturn can and will limit you if you cannot or will not impose some self-limitation on your own.
The Universe (Almighty, God, Creator, Great Spirit, Voice of Authority) does not arbitrarily send Saturn out to spank us because He feels like it. Saturn either spanks us or rewards us, like a Good father, proud papa and authority figure. The Truth is we deserve whatever Saturn is dealing to us. I ask you NOT TO continually look at Saturn as a bad guy because Saturn will only reprimand us if we need it. Do you need it? Saturn has that big belt (band of rings) around it for a reason. Saturn says, "Don't make me take my belt off." So . . don't make Saturn take its belt off. Show the Universe that you can self-limit, self-restrict, self-discipline and self-monitor yourself so that Saturn does not have to limit, restrict, discipline and monitor you, for you. In Astrology, all you have to do is follow the rules. That's pretty much it and this rule with Saturn can be as easy as you make it. If you think you have something to cry about, Saturn will take you to another level and give you something to cry about. So why not just straighten up. Stop doing those things that keep you from living out your intended path. The rules of astrology are easy and all you have to do is follow the rules. If you can follow rules, laws, guidelines and regulations that mankind creates and puts on the books, then surely you can follow the rules that God has created and follow them as well. Saturn says, "Straighten up and fly right or I will do it for you." It's an easy rule, so follow it.
So now we have the planet Saturn in the Sun Sign of Sagittarius. Sagittarius is a natural born traveler, communicator and teacher, only it takes travel, communication and teaching to a much higher level than its counterpart Gemini. Sagittarius and Gemini are opposite signs, whereas Sagittarius rules the 9th house of higher education including colleges and universities, and Gemini rules the 3rd house of lower education grades 1 - 12. Sagittarius rules higher thought including philosophy and religion; whereas Gemini rules mental abilities, mental telepathy and basic learning. Sagittarius is the globe-trotter and gypsy traveler with their toothbrush in their back pocket and Gemini is the local traveler and traveling salesperson. Sagittarius takes education and travel to a higher level than its counterpart Gemini.
When Saturn (the planet) and Sagittarius (the Sun Sign) are coupled-up this gives a serious and mature mind to the subject matter at hand. Saturn is very serious and demands maturity. Saturn naturally rules Capricorn, which is all business, with no monkey business. This brings about a more serious tone to religion, philosophy and higher learning (education). There is no doubt we are going to see a more strict adherence to philosophy, religion and other formal studies that require a strict moral code and higher degree of ethics. The slackers are on their way out! We will probably see this in government officials, CEOs and public figures (Saturn influence) and also in areas of religion, philosophy, educational institutions and legal structures because legal structures enforce moral codes. We may even see this in some sort of capacity that has to do with travel or transportation that cart people around by long distance bus, ships, airplanes, trains or any long distance transportation systems.
Sagittarius by nature is a Truth seeker, which means there will be a search for the Truth and the Truth will set us free. The restrictions we have placed on ourselves through laziness, procrastination, fear or mismanagement of time will be removed and Saturn will move in and place new restrictions on us that says, "You can't do this, unless you do that." Or . . "You can't have this, until you get rid of that!" Saturn has a funny way of restricting us because we restricted ourselves in all the wrong ways. Basically that is Saturn's way of saying, "Bend over, I'll give you something to cry about!"
I believe a lot of people will return to their religious roots and if they have no religious roots, they will gain some. Saturn in Sagittarius will be a call for us to adopt some philosophic or religious beliefs in order to get our moral code back on track. Saturn in Sagittarius will also call many individuals into religious Life, a legal career in order to defend the weak and defenseless or they may be called to higher education that has a philosophy of Living attached to it. Due to this placement and the desire to right oneself into a more strict moral code, there will be an intellectual pride and a protection of one's reputation. There will also be more individuals seeking an advanced degree such as a Master's, J.D., (law), Ph.D., or other doctorate. Sagittarius is all about higher education and the more degrees the better.
When Saturn in Sagittarius is challenged (afflicted) by other planets, especially in an individual's chart, that person will regard themselves as morally superior and will behave in a self-righteous way. In other words, "My way is the right way." Saturn in Sagittarius afflicted by other planets will cause an individual to press their moral, philosophic and religious beliefs on to others.
Again, Saturn in Sagittarius is very mature and serious where your moral code and reputation are concerned.
As Saturn moves through your 3rd house, it can be downright unpleasant when it comes to communication with others or it can be the most exciting and astounding two years you've ever had with regard to communication and traveling. You get to choose!
Saturn is all about RESPONSIBILITY, FATHER, PATIENCE, TEACHER, KARMA and STRUCTURE and is moving through your 3rd house of communication, writing, mental abilities, lower education from 1st to 12th grade, short journeys, local travel and travel within your own country and active search for knowledge; therefore, you will learn a lot about communication these days and this aspect is teaching you how to re-structure and re-organize your way of thinking and communicating. This aspect is teaching you that what once worked with your communication style needs to be changed, upgraded and matured. Saturn will teach you the hard way if you deliberately choose to use your "free will" to inhibit your growth through communication. Watch your tongue!
It's been said, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks." In astrology, this is not the case because the older you are, the easier it will be for you to GET the lesson and then change it. It's a maturity thing! During this aspect, you will have gained increased mental discipline and the old habits, attitudes and behaviors will finally leave you.
Your style of communication is changing and you may find yourself talking less, listening more and thinking about what you say before you speak. That would certainly be a change of pace for a Gemini. Your views are certainly changing, which in turn changes your outlook on Life. There is a more serious and mature side to you than you've revealed in the past. The youthful Gemini is growing up. There may be an opportunity to use this new style of communication with your siblings or neighbors, thereby creating a better relationship.
You may find yourself engaged in negotiations, contacts and agreements. Your new style of communication will benefit you in these areas. You may also find yourself needing a new car. Save your money and be prepared to purchase a new vehicle.
