I have a feeling I’m going to be writing (Gemini) a lot (Jupiter) about body image and body acceptance this year on the blog, corresponding to Jupiter’s transit through Gemini and Jupiter in Gemini’s squaring of Virgo, my 1st House (the body!) where my MoonPluto conjunction lives.
It’s been lifelong: genetics vs. exercise vs. food vs. self-hatred vs. my Mars in Cancer square Jupiter. I’m not a binge eater. One mini-cupcake is enough to satisfy my sweet tooth but only a strict low-carb diet this year brought weight loss. I joined a gym, started eating “normally,” and gained it all back.
Every woman I know has a story to tell about her body, about her weight, about her childhood, about her sex life, about her struggle for… lack of terror and tyranny from the mirror.
I am going to make this my Jupiter in Gemini goal: to explore and thus write about this topic.
What I am NOT going to write about: exercise tips, diet tips, make-up tips 😉 What I am heading for is a Pluto excavation in a big (Jupiter) way and maybe, just maybe we’ll… get somewhere. Get somewhere NEW because it’s time to transform this.
And will I ever be able to look at my naked body and NOT see my mother’s? And not find fault with that?
It’s going to be an interesting year 🙂
We’ll go step by step. Or will Jupiter square Virgo have all us Virgo peeps leaping before we look? Hmm…
Stay tuned to find out and set your own Jupiter in Gemini intention. How? Look for the aspects Jupiter in Gem will make in your chart this year. Look for “challenging” aspects and then find the sweet ones. And have a cupcake. If you want. 🙂
