January is when the Sun transits through the Earth element of Capricorn and the Air element of Aquarius. January has started off with all cylinders blazing! All the planets are moving forward. This hasn’t happened since last January! Great possibilities are at your finger tips as 2012 begins! The best analogy I could give for the start of this month would be that you are driving down an open road and there are no red lights or stop signs for miles and miles but of course there are tight curves and other cars on the road to be aware of. So, yes the road blocks are removed until January 23rd and it’s a great time to take action and make progress but you still have to pay attention to who’s on the road with you and where the twists and turns will lead you… Mars the planet of passion, energy, and anger will be the first to turn retrograde and slow down the party but that will give you time to catch your breath and regroup. See what comes up during this time, the week of January 23rd, there may be important clues as to what needs to be sorted out in regards to passions, repressed anger, or you may even feel your energy level drop. Don’t be alarmed. Just know it’s a time to reassess where you are putting your energy and maybe a time to re-evaluate where you want to invest your energy more conciously…
2012 will be a very interesting year! We will experience four Eclipses (2 Solar Eclipses & 2 Lunar Eclipses) of karmic happenings in the signs of Gemini, Sagittarius, Taurus and Scorpio. And then of course we all want to know where Jupiter the planet of good luck, expansion, abundance, and beliefs will be… The beneficiaries of Jupiter for 2012 will be Taurus for half the year and then Gemini for the other half. Uranus, the planet of innovation, rebellion, surprise, separation & freedom is still in Aries creating all kinds of shifts for people with birthdays March 19th – 31st and Sept 21st – Oct 3rd. For Aries and Libras the best you can do is breathe and not get too overwhelmed. Very powerful shifts are taking place. What in your life are you ready to break free from… Are you living your life from a place of truth and authenticity… If yes, this year can be one of expansion and adventure and if not this year can be a test in your commitment to a life that is not working… Uranus is the great awakener and in Aries the fire is bright and brings light to where it is dark. Get ready world, we are in for another exciting ride!

2012 will bring on more eclipses in your sign but that can be a really good thing. Eclipses can bring in amazing things in one’s life but you also have to let go of what is no longer serving you and that is where most people miss the boat… Know that when you release old energy, people, situations, you allow bigger and better things to fill that space.

Libras, Saturn will FINALLY leave your sign Oct 5th this year! Now I know you still have some months to go but you are at the home stretch. It has been a tough transit.

Listen to your intuitive Scorpio self before you jump into any financial situation this year. Good luck!
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:
2012 is a year to take life step by step. This isn’t a time to jump steps and move too fast. When you see you’re hitting a brick wall, stop, reassess and take the delay in stride. There is a reason for the delay and it can be to your benefit. The eclipse energy is still working for you so know that opening can happen when you least expect. No pushing this year. If a plan is not working push yourself away from the table and allow the time for inspiration to come in and take form. This can be an amazing year Sag!
