2012 The Year We Are All Going To Die

Oh it’s 2012 and according to experts I have until 12/21 to fulfill all my hopes and dreams. Personally I don’t think any of us will get off so easy as knowing when the end of time is coming. Too much of a mystery to belong to the human mind and all that. So I achieved one of my goals last year and learned how to leave work behind a bit and have more of a personal life. The whole relationship thing?? Well I’ve been a commitment phobe for 40 years so I think the fact that I actually gave it serious thought and consideration was a big enough step.  :^) I do think I have finally figured what I am and am not looking for and learned that although sometimes it does bother me that I am single it really has been the right thing for me. When I was younger I had the peace of knowing that I had to be true to myself and not settle for anything less than that one person who was perfect for me, not PERFECT, just perfect for me and if I didn’t find them so be it. I found that peace of belief again. Life will be what it will be and you just have to enjoy it for what it is.

I plan to do more things for myself this year, take care of myself for a change and do what I need to do to be happy. I want to go back to school, make sure I make time to see old friends instead of just brief comments on Facebook and the like. I used to pick a random subject that interested me and research and study the hell out of it just because, I’d like to do that again. I want to get back to the gym, not as some temporary attempt to lose weight but as a way to bring discipline and strength back into my life. It’s time for change. I’ve been reacting to what life throws at me for so long now I forgot I was once the type of person who made things happen for myself, who went after what I wanted with all I had win or lose. Guess I am looking at this as a year of possibilities. Been feeling a little bit of the old spark lately.

And now to the good stuff. The yearly horoscope. Last year’s is here. I did indeed learn to let go of what was holding me back. let’s see what this year will bring.

Year 2012 Overview

New beginnings have indeed arrived in your favor with the onset of 2012, Cancer. Although the biggest changes in the love realm won’t arrive until autumn, romance will return as a central theme for you in 2012 – just when you’d started to give up hope of anything new ever returning to your life! Although Pluto has been working on deeply transforming your partnership sector since 2008 (forcing you to shed the outmoded), you were indeed beginning to wonder if anything new would ever come to fill the void. And alas, it shall!

Saturn has been weighing heavily on your family and home sector over the past few years, bringing plenty of challenges your way. On one hand, this has been an incredibly grounding time filled with enough reality checks to put you firmly in touch with truth. It’s also revealed the importance of your roots, although it may have brought a wake of suffering, either through loss of relatives or a major strain on family relations. Take heart, dear Cancer – all is about to lighten up as Saturn moves out of a difficult aspect to your stars. When this cosmic taskmaster moves into your love and creativity sector in November, you’ll get serious about making more time for romance and self-expression. This also means you’ll be disciplined about your passions instead of throwing your precious energy around willy-nilly!

Expect to stay remarkably connected with others throughout 2012. Mars will be activating your communication for the first half of the year, keeping all your communication gadgets continually buzzing. During the first four months, the red planet will be retrograde, bringing mixed messages and retrospective reverie galore. Cancer folks are forever prone to dwelling in a nostalgic world, and this will be even more acute in 2012. The future is glorious – but first you’ve got to root yourself firmly in the present!

Cancer, this is your year to take romance seriously! If you’ve been a dilettante, your time is running out. Saturn will enter your love sector this October and ask you to make important choices about what you will – and won’t – accept in your love life. The cosmic taskmaster planet will also require you to put up or shut up when it comes to romance. No longer can you say one thing and do another. Either you’re in it for the long haul … or you’re a free bird. There’s no longer any in-between.

Friends could easily become lovers, or vice versa, under the lucky auspices of Jupiter in your social sector. It also means you could meet someone very special through your circle of friends. You won’t be spending much time at home this year, so your chances of meeting someone special are multiplied by the amount of time you spend out with friends. Always dress for success, because you never know who you might meet!

Pluto continues to rock the very foundation of your significant relationships. This has been going on for so many years now, it’s starting to feel status quo. You’ve certainly been to hell and back so often in recent times that you’ve grown accustomed to picking up the pieces and starting over. The redeeming factor of this intense transit is that each time you go through a personal cataclysm, you emerge that much stronger. Your ability to regenerate is astonishing at this point. You’ve weeded out the toxic relationship patterns and – more importantly – the negative people from your life. When it comes to love, you are the Phoenix!


Well here we go….. Happy New Year and may it be filled with all you love, enjoy and need.


2011- What will it bring?

Happy New Year! Another one behind us and the new year is full of possibility and hope. I’ve spent the past ten years with work being my number one priority but think this year I may be ready to change that a bit. It will still always be in the “Top 3” because I don’t really know how to do anything half way, everything I involve myself in is sort of all or nothing but I think I am finally getting tired of being single and just may set out about changing that. Sort of a scary thought at this point in my life, I am pretty used to doing as I please when I please and never being accountable to any one else for it. Not to mention the only time in my life I went for the whole committed relationship thing it was the absolute worst of experiences. But we learn from these things right?, and I have always tried to confront that which I am most afraid of so here’s to courage, bravery and the adventure of the unknown.

The most positive and exciting thing for me will be getting back to living my life unfettered by the dreaded anxiety attacks. I think I have finally got them beat. For a while there even the sight of the smallest snowflake would set them off and I made it through a full on blizzard without having one. Trust me it’s a major accomplishment and feels absolutely awesome!  Those stupid things can turn your whole world upside down and even at my worst I knew I was lucky because I was never as ruled by them as some other poor people I have seen go through it. I know I could have probably resolved the whole thing quite some time ago had I opted to take pills for it but that’s just not the route for me. I needed to know I could beat them, totally on my own and in doing so I can be confident that they won’t be coming back.

So last year I posted my 2010 Yearly Horoscope and decided I would review it periodically throughout the year to test the validity of such a thing. That post can be found here . Now it’s time for the new post with this year’s horoscope to see what the new year will bring.

Cancer Outlook for 2011

Cancer The Carb

Year 2011 Overview

Just when you thought that life couldn’t possibly throw any more twists or turns along life’s once tedious path, along comes the unpredictable but exhilarating energy of 2011 (operative word being ‘exhilarating’). Partnerships continue to confront you with your deepest needs and fears but your career shows incredible promise and renewal. You receive the lucky touch of Jupiter from January to June. Expect major expansion and recognition on all fronts.

Promotions, opportunities to expand your social world and work-related travel are all potential gifts when the wheel of fortune spins in your favor for the first half of the year. The second half of 2011 brings a spectacular slew of new friends, alliances and networking opportunities when Jupiter moves into your house of dreams, goals and community. Venus showers you with extra doses of love and cash for the month of July, just in time for your birthday. And Mars brings the action, energy and work in August and early September.

Get ready to jet set this spring and/or summer when the planet of glamour enters your long-distance travel sector this April. Your homebody instincts give way to the lure of travel and adventure in 2011. Fall and winter bring the return of dreamy Neptune to your sector of transformation for one last jaunt between August and 2012.

The South Node quickly finishes the run in Cancer by early January, calling up choices you’ve made in the past and asking you to learn from any mistakes that weakened your personal integrity. You’re learning to trust your gut when it comes to love and relationships rather than seeing what you want to see. You’re also getting in touch with just how sensitive you are and how important it is not take on other people’s emotional baggage.

The planetary heavyweight, Saturn ruling karmic lessons continues his transit through the relationship sign of Libra (consequently at the very core of your horoscope.) Lessons that began in 2010 in the love department get put to the test and require you to go even deeper. You’re getting the courage to cut the umbilical cords that have only served to choke your growth. Comfort and security are one thing, but if you’re wasting your time, you’re wasting your time, Cancer. You can no longer get away with rationalizing your feelings. The truth is in your belly.

Pluto, the lord of the underworld and deep, one-way transformation continues to reveal any repressed issues and power struggles in significant relationships. Consider that you’re only in the early stages of a heavy long-term process of self-discovery and shedding skin. Letting go has never been more essential to your overall wellbeing. Relationships take on a heavier vibe and ask you to commit thereby eliminating any residual fluff. Those relationships that no longer serve you will fall away, ready or not. And there is no going back under Pluto’s inevitable one-way metamorphosis.

I’ll be back in 2012 to check this out and post on the past!
