2012: Capricorn Overview
The confusion of 2011 is about to lift as clarity returns in 2012. You've no doubt been through a series of powerful metamorphoses since 2008, when Pluto took possession of your stars for the long haul. You're not even a quarter of the way through the 18-year shedding process that Pluto requires ... and yet you're not the same person you were just a few years ago by any stretch of the imagination. In some ways, you can expect this year to be a long, dramatic pause. You'll be questioning many aspects of your existence, especially your professional life. Mars, the planet of work and action, will be retrograde for the first quarter of the year in your house of higher learning and travel, putting you in a deeply introspective and philosophical mode. During this time, you'll be less inclined to hit the road than you will be to hit the books.
When the eclipse patterns stir up the winds of change for you again in spring and summer, you'll experience some major epiphanies about the new direction you need to take. The new Moon solar eclipse in your work sector brings a fresh approach to the way you go about your daily routine. And then, the full Moon lunar eclipse of June in your dream sector will bring the muse and vision to inspire you to go beyond the known. The total solar eclipse and new Moon in your goal sector in November is the final push to plant radically new seeds. There's no question that you're leaving your old life behind; it's now just a matter of faithfully emerging into the new.
Love is in the air with generous Jupiter in sister Earth sign Taurus, showering your romantic sector until June. The planet of fortune will provide ample opportunities for you to fall in love with someone new - or simply love the one you're with. Pleasure becomes a key theme for the first half of the year, providing a nice balance to your normal dutiful life.
Reach out to a friend early in the day, when trends favor making good connections. Later, it's best to persevere. Even though it seems like you're making slow progress, at least you are moving forward with that potty training or other milestone.
You've got friends who can help you with today's mini-crisis, so reach out as soon as you see the signs. Things shouldn't get too bad today, so you can chill out and let this situation resolve itself.
Earth signs are good at knowing when to eat in moderation, but certain events or foods can trigger that full-speed-ahead appetite. Knowing yourself and your habits is a great way to maintain your health, no matter what your stress level may be.
Leave no mess untouched. You're an organizing machine these days, so tackle the chaos in your purse, pick up a shoe rack and turn some attention to your closet, or sort through all your makeup and styling products.
