2012: Libra Overview
Although many have secretly been dreading the arrival of 2012, you've personally been looking forward to it. That's because karmic taskmaster Saturn has been doing a number on your life over the past two-plus years. Relationship lessons have been relentless throughout this time. If you haven't made important decisions about where to commit - and where to quit - these are your final months to do so. Don't wait another 30 years to get clear on what you truly want in your relationships. You'll be in the throes of Saturn's testing until October, when it moves into your neighboring sign, Scorpio. Consider this your final exam!
Jupiter will be in its fellow Venus-ruled sign of Taurus, making a magical aspect to your stars for a good portion of 2012. Jupiter's lucky presence in your sector of sexuality, transformation and other people's money brings every material and emotional resource you could ever want or need. You'll have no problem attracting the proper support to fund your current or future projects. This is also the year for coming into your true power by transforming all the dead weight of your past. Change looks good on you, Libra. You've been shedding layers of karma, and now you're about to reap the wonders of renewal.
World travel beckons in 2012, so pack your bags! The spring-summer eclipse patterns activate your travel sector in May and June, and Venus is in your travel sector between April and August. During the retrograde phase in May and June, you may want to be lay low or avoid more intricate itineraries. Mars will be spending the entire first half of the year in your sector of sleep, unconscious processes and dreams. This could create some inner turbulence (if not all-out insomnia) if you don't give yourself enough expressive and physical outlets. As always, it's about finding balance, Libra.
You will find you must deal with some obstacles today. Some might be conceptual, but most will be physical (like if your baby has outgrown their snowsuit, there's no way to stuff them in). Quick thinking helps you overcome all.
It's all about relationships today -- so make sure that you're focusing your energy outward! That may start to get exhausting after a while, but you can do a lot of good if you keep going.
National Cocoa Day brings up all kinds of good and cozy memories. It's a day to make yourself a real cup of the good stuff using organic milk, dutch-processed cocoa and the raw sweetener of your choice. Then get a good book, put your feet up and relax.
Regardless of what the pros say, it's not necessary to go for the burn. Yes, you're improving your running time, but listen to your body. If you're extremely fatigued after a workout or start getting shin splints, it might be time to back off a little and switch it up.
