Star Wisdom | January 2012


Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…You are the trailblazer of the zodiac. With Uranus the Awakener in your sign for the next six years, you can bring innovative, next-level ideas into the world. To do this, though, you need to live and work in an environment that is open to what you have to offer. Set your intention and commit to the work necessary to make it so.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…You can have your cake and eat it too — if you’re willing to get fanatical about self-discipline and routine. Pulling off the feat you envision in your life requires a tremendous amount of focused energy. Commit to a spiritual practice that brings you into energetic integrity and you’ll see your dreams blossom in 2012.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…Building win-win relationships is a major theme for you in 2012. To do that, you need to get really clear on your mother or father issues. Make a commitment to clear that old stuff so you can be free to attract the relationship(s) you really desire. Your formula in 2012: Creating from the inside out.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…What if you could quit fighting for the relationship you long for and instead discover the secret key that allows you to attract what you most desire? You can – by cultivating a ruthless awareness of the thoughts you hold about your own worthiness and the corresponding expectations you send out into the world. You can do great things this year and they all start in your own mind.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…Finding your right work is a major theme this year. You’re so talented you can do many different things and make them all look effortless. But there’s one direction that calls your soul and your challenge in 2012 is to commit to it so fully that you’ll do whatever it takes to succeed. If you sell out for your soul, by the way, you’ll always have what you truly need.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Recovering your personal power is a major theme in 2012. Being of service from a sense of guilt or shame is no longer good enough. January’s astrology asks you to see your life as a work of art and commit to making it as beautiful and useful as you possibly can. If this feels impossible, start with the most important act of power: claiming what you really want from life and committing to this vision.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…If you can believe it, the first half of 2012 asks you to let go of even more old stuff. This time, your challenge is to release the relationships (and ideas about relationship) that sabotage you when you try to step into your life’s work. The Full Moon on the 9th sheds light on this process. Remember this proven formula: Addition by subtraction.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…Your challenge in 2012 is to take your formidable emotional intelligence and put it to the service of your life’s dream. You can see this so easily for other people; now it’s time to understand the thought patterns that keep you from recognizing your own value and living up to your own ideals. This is where your energy wants to go – why not cooperate with it?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…You’ve come to a new understanding of who you are and of the programmed behaviors and received ideas that keep you from bringing your authentic genius into the world in viable ways. Your mission in 2012: Take that new awareness and use it to create a sustainable career path that brings you the abundance you desire – and deserve.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…You’re the master builder of the zodiac. You are meant to play a vital role in the Great Transition to a new, more human global society. Start 2012 with a renewed commitment to your spiritual practice. Showing up for your Higher Self every day will expand your intuition and keep you energetically fit for this awesome challenge.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…You’re doing some deep soul-searching as 2012 begins. You realize you need to surround yourself with people who really get you on a deep level – trying to fit in with people who are stuck in the old paradigm just isn’t working anymore. Use the first three weeks of the year to look within and plan your strategy – you’ll get a big boost of energy and confidence when the Sun enters your sign on the 20th.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…You’re reaching for what your soul most desires to create in this lifetime and, believe it or not, the Universe has been waiting for you to do just that. You can’t afford to burn energy maintaining the status quo in a relationship that holds you back. Own your power and make room for the powerful, helpful people who want to partner with you to enter your life.
