2012: Scorpio Overview
Scorpio, 2012 is your year of reckoning! You worked yourself to the bone in 2011, and now you've hit a major impasse. You've got until October to continue experimenting with what you want out of life; after that, big decisions must be made. Saturn is about to take up residence in your constellation for the first time in nearly 30 years. This planet rules karma, time and integrity, so each of these will be key themes throughout the year. Your values will be tested during the last quarter of the year, so get all your ducks in a row by then to avoid the stress of Saturn's inquisition. The good news is that a weight is about to be lifted from your consciousness, and all the background melancholy you may have felt over the past few years should lighten up.
A major eclipse pattern takes hold of your stars in autumn 2012. November's total solar eclipse in Scorpio is sure to rock the very foundation of your life, so get ready for some major shifts in your relationships. Your life will definitely not be the same by the time 2013 rolls around. You're a butterfly and a phoenix - expect to shed some major skin this year.
This could also be one of the most socially driven years you've ever seen. With Mars activating your house of friendship and goals in the sign of Virgo, expect a majority of your energy to be engaged with a barrage of social situations. It's all for a good cause, however, and will translate into your bigger life goals; in fact, a good portion of the parties you attend will have some sort of work component behind them. And with glamorous Neptune moving back into your pleasure sector in February, life will suddenly become very art-house cinema for you.
Today it's more than likely that you will have a chance to make a splash on the social scene. Go ahead and hold an impromptu get-together for your tyke and friends. Taking them all to the pool might be a way to go.
You may be a dreamer, but on days like today, you prefer to handle the small details. It's one of those situations in which you can't really trust anyone else to get things right, so you have to do it yourself.
You feel the need for a little sugar, and if it's caramelized, all the better. If you're in a health food or gourmet store, think about buying a little date, maple or coconut sugar, all of which are a touch better for you than the refined stuff.
Nothing breaks up a ho-hum weekend like creating something. So instead of going to a movie or the mall for the fifth Sunday in a row, why not visit a great bead store or enroll in a sewing seminar instead?
