Horoscope January 2012

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

With fortunate Jupiter in Taurus until June 12, 2012, you will build energy and financial resources in the first half of 2012, and then expend those energetic and financial resources in the second half of the year. It is likely you will need the funds you accumulated either for travel, classes, gadgets, or other learning tools while Jupiter transits the mentally curious sign of Gemini until mid-2013. It is time to develop your mind so you can apply your skills to an important project. Your impulse to take on a complex project will intensify while Mars, your planetary ruler, travels through the industrious sign of Virgo until July 2012. Use this enterprising energy to refine details, to learn skills that you will use in the future, and to complete an important – as yet unfinished – undertaking.


TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Lucky Jupiter in Taurus until June 12, 2012 will aid financial acquisitions and personal relationships. It is a good time for investments in precious metals and gems, or real estate. You will grow in important ways from classes, group meetings or spiritually-oriented travel. You will be open to higher states of awareness during the second half of the year. Explore mind-expanding possibilities beginning in June 2012. By opening your consciousness, you will release rigid patterns held in your body and mind. These liberating experiences will improve your health – physically and financially – as  energy and “currency” more easily flow though your body, mind, and soul. Financial abundance will result from spiritually-motivated actions initiated during the second half of the year. Plant the seeds in the first six months of 2012 and reap the harvest in the latter half of the year. Venus, your planetary ruler, turns retrograde in Gemini in May and June 2012. If you have over-spent in the past, re-pay your debts during this two-month period. If someone owes you, this is a good time to collect.


GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)

You will have a year of unexpected meetings with new people who will influence your life direction. This trend will be most obvious in the days leading up to a lunar eclipse in Gemini on December 10, 2011, followed by a solar eclipse in Gemini on May 20, 2012, a lunar eclipse in Gemini on June 4, 2012, a solar eclipse on November 13, 2012, and yet another lunar eclipse in Gemini on November 28, 2012. The eclipses of the sun and moon alter the normal pattern of solar and lunar light, which causes people who don’t normally connect to serendipitously bump into each other. Stay open to chance meetings and try to find an opportunity in unexpected encounters. “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” You will get “there” – to a good place – by not knowing in advance where “there” is. By staying open to opportunities you previously had not contemplated, you will receive richness from unanticipated encounters and experience undreamed-of possibilities. Nonetheless, remember to stay prepared for all outcomes by stocking up on important supplies and having extra cash available for unforeseen adventures.


CANCER (June 22 – July 22)

A series of solar and lunar eclipses from December 2011 to December 2012 will give you time to tune into your sensitive soul. Make sure to do extra meditation, yoga, quiet contemplation and writing in the days leading up to the eclipses – December 10, 2011 (lunar eclipse), May 20, 2012 (solar eclipse),  June 4, 2012 (lunar eclipse), November 13, 2012 (solar eclipse), and November 28, 2012 (lunar eclipse). A celestial line-up between change-oriented Uranus and depth-seeking Pluto in Capricorn just after the Summer Solstice will stimulate your creativity and help you disentangle from a restrictive domestic or professional burden. Choose at least one area of your life that you would like to change – because energies will conspire to bring positive transformation to you even if you try to hold on. So it is best to prepare for and choose your change – because it is likely to come to you – one way or the other.


LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Relationships will be anything but predictable in 2012 with illusory Neptune crossing through a sensitive area of your solar chart. You may see what you want to see in others, only later to find out that the other person had a completely different agenda from your own. Make sure to ask questions and gather details before making relationship commitments in the coming year. There is a chance that there will be hidden information, particularly of a financial nature. Travel will benefit you in the coming year, but be prepared for sudden changes in your own mood and the moods of the people with whom you may be traveling or in contact with on your voyage. Trip insurance is a good idea!


VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Energetic Mars in Virgo for an unusually long eight-month period – from November 11, 2011to July 3, 2012 – will heighten your energy level and endurance in 2012. Mars typically spends two months in each zodiac sign, but will spend four times longer in Virgo, due to the retrograde motion of the fiery planet. Consequently, you will experience greater heat and blood flow in your body. Greater circulation than you are accustomed to will strengthen your health but may also make you feel over-charged at times. This could lead to irritability or nervous exhaustion. Try to pace yourself during the first six months of 2012 so you don’t expend all of your energy at once or absorb too much of other people’s nervous energy. Get out into nature, take long walks, breathe deeply, or sit quietly and write your thoughts and feelings. Mars can make one feel headstrong or dogmatic, so if you feel yourself becoming intolerant – or too fixated on details  – try to step back, see the big picture, and look at the situation from another person’s point of view. Consider alternatives.


LIBRA (September 23 – October 23)

You are setting the stage for the next seven-year chapter of your life as karmic Saturn completes its journey once-every-30-year through Libra on November 5, 2012. (Saturn was last in Libra in 1982.) It is time to put the finishing touches on plans for the future. Think strategically about what you will need to move forward for the next 30 years  – Are you in the correct location? Are the people you are with mutually supportive? Is your living environment good for your health? Are you doing the work you enjoy?  What changes are necessary to bring YOU (not everyone else) happiness? This is the time to contemplate changes you would like to make, because chances are good that not only will the changes be correct for you, but they will be correct for the people around you – and their impact will be long-lasting and practical.


SCORPIO (October 24 – November 21)

On November 5, 2012, karmic Saturn enters Scorpio for the first time since 1985. This will open a two-and-a-half year karmic window that will enable you to resolve issues that may have been outstanding since the late 1980s, or at least the past seven years. Much of your self-transformation will come as a result of and in relationship to – relationships. You have a need for a high degree of intimacy and have a high tolerance level for the exigencies (at times!) of human relationships. Do a searching inventory of your partnerships to discover where situations might have become overly complex – and where you may simplify. This could include accepting people or situations the way they are or allowing a person to relate to you on a superficial level – difficult as this is for you – without searching for deeper reactions. Try to use your gifts of intuition and endurance advance an important goal such as starting an altruistic business, furthering your spiritual growth, or contributing to a community activity.


SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Your planetary ruler, lucky Jupiter, in Taurus during the first half of 2012 will help you to focus on financial abundance and material security. Pay attention to reducing your expenses and adhering to a budget while trying to develop a savings plan. This ability will come in handy during the second half of 2012, when you will be more focused upon relationships – many of them – and expenses related to these new contacts. New people bearing useful information will come into your life beginning in June 2012. You will benefit from classes, travel, and learning opportunities under the influence of Jupiter in Gemini.


CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

You are ready to change a persistent pattern that has kept you from manifesting your true self and the creative power within you. Make an inventory of your life to determine a habit that no longer serves you. A potent alignment between change-oriented Uranus in Aries and deeply transformative Pluto in Capricorn begins on June 24, 2012, just after the Summer Solstice. This celestial line-up occurs an astounding seven times between 2012 and 2015, giving you ample time to let go of the past and create new foundations for the future. Consider options, think strategically, and make bold decisions when you have the necessary information and have thoroughly thought about the path that lies ahead of you. Many exciting opportunities will come your way. Prepare to meet these opportunities by being open-minded and available to possibilities you previously had not considered.


AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

The passage of spiritual Neptune from Aquarius into Pisces on February 3, 2012 marks the end of an era for you. The illusory planet Neptune has been in Aquarius since January 1998, except for a brief sojourn into Pisces from April to August 2011. The passage of Neptune through Aquarius has had numerous effects upon you – it alternately made you tired or spacey, while simultaneously opening your mind to new possibilities or even levels of reality, through your dreams and a connection to your soul. Neptune dissolves material abundance while simultaneously producing spiritual riches. Neptune can open your eyes to wondrous mystical realities and expose the dark side of mundane reality. You may have felt deluded about a situation or aspect of life, so you were forced to discover a more fruitful avenue for your energy. You will become more passionate about various ideas about which you were ambivalent before.


PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Your planetary ruler, Neptune, re-enters Pisces on February 3, 2012 for the first time since the 1840s (except for a brief sojourn in Pisces from April to August 2011). Neptune will remain in Pisces until 2026. This planetary transit will give you enhanced energy and appreciation for art, music, the importance of water, and your evolving connection to your soul and Spirit. Your receptivity to spiritual discovery and evolution through prayer, meditation and affirmations will be heightened. A potent line-up of change-oriented Uranus in Aries and depth-seeking Pluto in Capricorn will bring  people into your life who are deeply seeking answers. Your spiritual example will do more to help them transform their lives than any words you may utter or physical action you may take. Strengthen your own spiritual center and encourage others to follow your example. You are ahead of your time and possess insight beyond that of your contemporaries. (Steve Jobs of Apple was a Pisces!)
