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.
You might want to compliment the people in charge on their appearance today. They're likely in a good mood to begin with, but a little extra buttering up couldn't hurt. Especially if you're about to ask for a favor for your little one.
You feel larger than life -- so act like it! You may get lost in the crowd of others who are also trying to impress the world, but that's okay. If anything, you may surprise them all in the end!
You're not the type to see a few spots on an apricot and think, 'Eh. No big deal.' On the contrary, you're more likely to inspect every cherry before you put it in the bag! Just make sure you're not expending too much energy on the task in front of you.
Is that genuine turquoise necklace actually plastic? That perfume bottle is awfully spiffy -- but how's the scent? Don't be afraid to question the quality of any products or accessories you're not sure about.
