Jupiter in Gemini
Jupiter rules the sign Sagittarius the Archer.
Traditionally it is the ruler of Pisces the Fish.
We now refer to Jupiter as the co-ruler of Pisces along with the modern ruler Neptune.
Jupiter takes twelve years to make one journey around the Sun.
With a dozen zodiac signs Jupiter will spend about one year in each sign.
The timing is not exact but is pretty close.
Chinese Astrology Calendar
Jupiter’s orbit is loosely aligned with Chinese astrology which has one sign for each year and not each month as in western astrology.
You can see the slight permutations in the movement of Jupiter through Gemini when you line it up against the Chinese astrology signs.

Jupiter in Gemini – Detriment
Detriment of a Planet
When a planet is in the sign opposite the one it rules (in this case Jupiter rules Sagittarius) it is said to be in its sign of detriment.
Ptolemy had much to say about the essential dignities of the planets and when a planet is found in its detriment it receives a weighting score of -5.
Jupiter’s Tradition Detriment
Jupiter is in its tradition sign of detriment when in Gemini.
This indicates the planets energies are not able to function particularly well or reach their full potential.
Of course as always, a full analysis of the Jupiter complex is needed to appreciate its position in any chart.
The planet of breadth has met the sign of information.
