Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Mars your ruler and the planet of energy and determination spends time in Libra in July after a very long and restricting stay in Virgo through the first half of the year. Out of phase and scattering your actions far and wide, this will be a real test of your true grit Aries. Plus Uranus the planet of the unexpected in your sign through 2018 motivates you to slowly but surely flip your life upside down. Uranus will encourage you to embrace personal change. This could be your outward appearance or you might sense an increasing desire to aim your life in a new direction and have brand new dreams and goals.
In 2012 welcome new experiences and new people in your cosmic circle. The best way to fulfill your new found need for freedom is to change self-limiting behaviors rather than let the energy emerge as a rebellious streak. Use this in a positive way and by 2018 you will view and approach the world differently and for the better.
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
At times throughout the year you will get flashes on insight – hunches activated by Uranus and your subconscious. Listen to all of them – especially concerning friends and your career. Being an earth sign, you tend to ignore your subconscious voice. 2012 is a year when ‘winging it’ and going with the flow will be a major plus.
Venus your ruler in your sign in March along with a New Moon in your romance zone suggests that this is the time single bulls will meet Mr or Mrs Right. For those of you feeling trapped in a relationship, Venus retrograde in May gives you a chance to escape once and for all. And you might not have to do anything much at all…an EXIT sign could appear like magic!
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
Neptune, the planet of dreams and rose coloured glasses vision makes his permanent home in Aquarius through 2025. Good and bad news here – Neptune has a habit of making things seem better and more enticing than they really are. However up close and on further inspection, you realize there’s major risk as well. Misunderstandings and confusion will occur and you will question your role in life and the world at time and whether your career has true value at times.
2 eclipses in your sign is highly unusual. May 21 a solar eclipse in your sign is all about you and the empowerment you have to achieve your goals. Just make sure you know what your goals are! Pick one or two and stick to them! Measure your progress at the November 28 lunar eclipse in your sign, adjust as necessary and continue on your path into 2013.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Saturn changes course in October and sets up his strict, teaching college in Scorpio. Saturn emphasizes home and family as well as your roots and everything domestic. Saturn has been in Libra since November 2009, so many of you may have already relocated; if not this could be the year you decide to find a new home. This influence can also trigger a desire a major remodel or a change in your household with someone moving in or out. Researching your family tree is something you’ll enjoy doing in November 2012.
Saturn’s move into Scorpio, your romance, self-fulfillment and creative zone signals the start of a hot new romance for single Crabs or those of you looking for love. Scorpios are a great match for you – both water signs –you have a strong physical and sexual hold on each other. A dating relationship could get way too comfy way too easy. If it’s easy you want…you’ve got it. If not, keep looking. Developing a stronger relationship with your children is definitely something you will do in 2012.
Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Jupiter in Gemini could also bring relationship challenges for those of you involved in a job-related team effort. All will not go smoothly as you’d like and it will be very difficult to reach consensus at times. Someone may tell you what you want to hear omitting pertinent info. So you will find yourself feeling embarrassed at times through the latter half of the year.
Your emphasis shifts to your roots early October when Saturn begins his two and a half year transit of Scorpio, your 4th house of home and family. Buying property, moving, organizing a family reunion, tracing your family’s roots are all on your cosmic agenda in the last few months of 2012. It’s possible you could also become more involved with the care of an elderly relative or parent.
Virgo (August 24 – September 23)
Saturn, the taskmaster of the planet spends most of the year in your 2nd house of self-esteem and finances. Saturn continues you to examine what you value and is a constant reminder that you are your most valuable possession. Think about what is most important to you in life, what really matters and embrace your priorities. Saturn has been in your 2nd house for 2.5 years by the time he moves out in October 2012. Financially you have learnt some life lessons – the hard way. It’s not easy to balance your life, let alone a budget is it? 2012 continues to challenge you financially. You’re learning valuable lessons – rent versus buying, lease versus buying and how to invest for the best return.
Neptune the planet of dreams and rose coloured glasses enters your opposite sign of Pisces February 3 2012 – 2025. You’re going to meet a new slew of people over the next 13 years. This year, Pisces and Scorpios will have a very real impact on your life.
Libra (September 24 – October 23)
Jupiter also encourages you to look toward the future with optimism and to clearly define where you’re going and how you plan on getting there. Have a plan in 2012 Librans. Without a plan, plan B and even a plan C, you have nothing. With your plans firmly in mind, you will be able to reinforce your faith in yourself and your skills, talents and abilities as you get in touch with the spiritual side of yourself. Meditation, long soaks in baths, talking with smart savvy people, even joining some sort of support group are all great ideas in 2012.
Saturn, the planet of limitations, restrictions and life lessons finally leaves your sign October 5. Another date to write down in your diary. You will undoubtedly look back at the past 2.5 years with some regrets (maybe a lot of them). Squandered opportunities and missed meetings and phone calls will have you wishing you had been more on top of things. That said, it’s not too late to really laser focus yourself NOW Librans and take advantage of Saturn in your sign through Oct 5 to get things done!
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Once Jupiter moves into Gemini June 10 – June 2013 he transits your eighth house of joint enterprises. Money could very well start flowing your way, some of it via unexpected sources (inheritance, lotto win, stock dividends, and tax return). Take time to update your insurance and avoid being financially complacent. Balance your good fortune out – by rewarding yourself as well as being savvy when it comes to saving money as well. And while it’s fun working with others and being business partners, there is wisdom in not being too trusting. You are a very loyal sign and sometimes get taken advantage of ‘talk the talk but can’t walk the walk’ individuals. 2012 is one of those years when some of you could feel scammed.
2012 is very much a month when you will look back over all the things have been working for you and decide that you do need to make some changes. Jupiter in your eighth house suggests you do need to work exceedingly well with others. And while some of you can, many Scorpios are loners. Uranus spends the entire year in Aries, your solar 6th house of daily work, health and service. If there was ever a time to lose those extra kilos and get in shape, 2012 is the year!
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
In Libra, Saturn, the planet of focus and discipline has been transiting your 11th house of friendship, hopes and wishes. Some friendships may fall by the wayside as you realize their lives no longer mesh well with yours. New people will arrive to take their palaces, and some of these will arrive for a purpose – to teach you something, to motivate you, or to provide a networking connection.
Saturn moves into Scorpio October 5, your twelfth house of past karma, subconscious and self-renewal. The last 3 months will be very much a time for you to look back at 2012 and what you’ve achieved and what you have failed at. This is all in preparation for when Saturn moves into your sign – September 18, 2015. Regrets are likely to emerge in your thoughts, however luckily you are good at forgiving and forgetting and moving on.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
Keep in mind that burning the candle at both ends is not a good idea. Jupiter in your wellness center will urge you to take a break – get up from the computer and go outside for a walk or have a cup of tea and unwind. Just remember that with Saturn in your 10th house of career and ambition for most of 2012, you are in a win-win situation when it comes to getting a pay rise or promotion. Don’t sell yourself short or let others take advantage of you by stealing your good ideas right out from under your nose.
Uranus the planet of the unexpected transiting Aries through 2018 means that the next 6 years are going to be very interesting when it comes to your domesticity. Many of you will move – homes, states, overseas or from a home into a flat or into a caravan – all depending on what works best for you at the time. Many of you will do house swaps – moving to Tuscany or Paris and having people live in your home. Some will research family roots while others will move in with family members to save money.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
Saturn the planet of discipline and restriction makes moves in October when he sets up shop in Scorpio where he stays through September 2015. In your 10th house of career, social ambition and ego, Saturn will put many of you on a tight leash when it comes to work. No more coming and going when you like, being careless at times and not really as focused as you should be. You could see a raise soon after Saturn enters Scorpio but many of you won’t see any real gains of Saturn until 2013.
Two eclipses affect you in 2012. The May 21 solar eclipse in Gemini and the November 28 lunar eclipse also in Gemini. Affecting your romance zone, many of you could be madly in love in May and reeling in November when you discover something about your partner that you did not see coming. June 11 is a date to write down in your diary. Single? Go on a date on the 11th. Go speed dating or online dating or a blind date. You’ll have fun!
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)
Neptune, your planetary ruler begins its long journey through Pisces February 3. During the coming years, you’ll reap the benefits of this inspirational planet as well as the faith it can generate, resulting in enhanced self-understanding and self-esteem. You’ll become more at one with yourself, which will benefit the relationships in your life. Keep in mind that Neptune is known as the planet of illusion and rose coloured glasses – people talk a good game and you fall right into their ‘trap’ if they are indeed setting one.
Pluto in Capricorn though 2025 is a very slow moving planet however in your 11th house of friendship, hopes and wishes, it will see a lot change with your friends. You’ll attract new people into your life – people who are going to be very influential in your life and in some cases, in the world. On the flip side, some people could try to use you for their own means and ends and be talking a big game. If you’re not sure, have a Scorpio friend check your new friend out.
