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.
Early in the day is an excellent time to toss ideas around with other people. Some lively exchanges will help you weigh the pros and cons of an important decision. Gather as much information as you can, then ponder it all later in the day.
You need to indulge a friend today -- maybe one you haven't seen in quite some time. Let them ramble, give them what they need (and what you can afford), hug them hard and send them on their way.
National Quiche Lorraine Day has arrived, but you're without any pie weights to help weigh down that flaky-yet-tender quiche crust. Never fear -- dry beans or marbles (pre-cleaned, of course) will work just as well.
Don't let your dresser drawers or bathroom cabinets become cluttered with broken items and unusable accessories. Repair the things you can repair (or bring them to a professional) and clear out the rest.
