The Horoscope of the Eclipse is cast for the 150th Time Meridian, 10 hours east of Greenwich, my place’s Standard Time; same Time Meridian as Sydney, New South Wales.

Few days after the spectacular meteorite shower struck the Russian city of Chelyabinsk I posted the Horoscope of the event, with the time zone provided by Solar Fire. Apparently this time zone was incorrect, because Chelyabinsk is, at the moment, 6 hours east of Greenwich and not 5.
Furthermore the actual time of the event appears to be 9.26 and not 9.20. I am grateful for this information to Pat Flannagan who wrote this comment:
Please check your time zone on this. Chelyabinsk is currently on YEKST or 6 hours difference from UTC. Also the digital times on the car cams videos on Youtube show 9:26 AM. Reports said the meteorite’s entry was just minutes after sunrise. I’ve seen very few posts on this subject (surprisingly).
I’m now posting a new Horoscope with the right Time Zone and adjusted time. Thanks, Pat.
Sorry for the delay in making these corrections: the Australian eastern states (I live in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales) have recently been hit by another bout of torrential rains that have kept me at home due to flooded creeks, until today. And, at home, our solar power energy has dwindled to nothing due to the constant clouds cover.

I re-post here an article on Jupiter in Gemini that I published early in the year.
Jupiter has moved Signs on June 12, from Earthy Taurus to Airy Gemini.
Until the end of June 2013 Jupiter will provide a time of opportunities and risk taking for people with a Gemini emphasis in their Birth Charts; also for those with Planets and/or Angles in any of the other Mutable Signs (Virgo-Sagittarius-Pisces). The other Fire/Air Signs (Aries-Leo-Libra-Aquarius) will be much stimulated by this transit too.
It was about twelve years ago that Jupiter transited Gemini the last time, 2000/2001. Looking back at those times, or even a further 12, 24 or 36 years earlier, we could all gain a better understanding of the way this placement of Jupiter is likely to manifest in our life.
Suitable choices to express Jupiter’s energy positively would be to study, travel, expand your business, take action aiming at bettering your circumstances, or embark on a metaphysical search of some kind. Jupiter will help you to get more out of life, giving meaning to your personal experiences, improving your general mood, inspiring you with confidence. In fact the negative side of this transit could be to become too optimistic and overly confident. If this is the case whatever enterprise you may begin this year could prove more difficult to realize than you imagined or hoped for. It would be wise to make a conscious effort to stay grounded to handle the Giant Planet’s exuberance. On the other hand, if you habitually lack confidence, not to waste Jupiter’s blessing, it will be important to curb any old fears that prevented you from achieving your goals in the past. Trust Jupiter to help you do just that.
If Jupiter was in Gemini in your Birth Chart you will experience a Jupiter‘s Return between June 2012 and June 2013. This is an astrological way of saying that you are turning 12/24/36/48/60/72/84/96 years old (born in 2000/01, 1988/89, 1976/77, 1964/65, 1953/54, 1941/42, 1929/30, 1917/18; consult an Ephemeris for exact dates). Greater confidence in your intellectual abilities and a keener desire to learn and know could help you this year with exams and tests; also to put pen to paper if you are so inclined. New interests may also introduce you to new people with whom to share them.
I remember a special Jupiter Return year for me, when I turned 36. With my Return in the IX House accompanied by other exciting transits, I made a leap of faith that year, choosing to leave a ‘normal’ job that provided a modest but secure income, to embark more professionally into Astrology, an interest and hobby of mine for a number of years. The sense of excitement, the renewed confidence I needed for my brave move and also the high hopes that I then held for my career (many later quashed by some hard realities) are all clear Jupiter’s signatures. Despite the fact that the reality of things didn’t quite match Jupiter’s promises I would not go back on my choice at that time, because it has transformed my world in very meaningful ways.
Master astrologer Steven Arroyo says of the Jupiter Return that it ‘liberates vast new energies for self-improvement …for it is a time of committing oneself to a new vision of the future’.
A great amongst contemporary astrologers, if you haven’t read Arroyo yet, please do so.
Communications of all kinds are highlighted by the passage of Jupiter through Gemini. I wouldn’t be surprised if some unusual networking will take place, perhaps involving the disclosure of information of value to many people. A novel way of networking might emerge, allowing even greater connectivity. More and more people, from all countries, cultures and socio/economic backgrounds, will join the world wide web, to share ideas and learn from each other. This could be the year of self-publishing and free-lancing on a grand scale.
Jupiter’s transit through Gemini also highlights the risk that a lot of what circulates and is shared in our brave new cyber world will be crap, gossip, or useless, repetitive, unoriginal information. To hopefully counteract this tendency in the months of June and July Jupiter will form a positive aspect to Uranus in Aries and a challenging aspect to Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, contacts that will permit a more exciting, visionary, innovative and inspired use of this placement.
