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.
A lunar eclipse fires a desire to add to your income. It might be time to part with the outgrown baby gear and clothing, and to see how much you can get for it at a garage sale or online. Other moneymaking ideas will strike in the weeks ahead.
Your personal issues are sure to be influenced by your deepest spiritual thinking today, so don't be too surprised to find yourself shaking things up in fairly major ways. Things can improve dramatically!
Once again, it's National Brown Bag It Day. You like it when humble things have a hidden shot of pizzazz. So pack a small glass bottle of gourmet ginger beer or bring a long a few ripe apricots and some well-aged Cotswold cheddar.
Look beyond the surface. That sundress looks great on the hanger ... but when you put it on, is it see through? And those shiny earrings are eye-catching ... but are they really made of a potentially irritating metal?
