Your Horoscope: Week of Dec. 28, 2011-Jan. 3, 2012

Week of Dec. 28, 2011-Jan. 3, 2012
This Week: Happy new year! As we roll into this New Year, we need to concentrate on the positive elements that are about to transpire. Focus on the best possible outcomes, and pray for peace. Even though we have entered the “Age of Aquarius” years ago, now is the time that we will actually see these elements manifest to their full potential. Unity is key this year. Love thy neighbor and lend a helping hand whenever you can. The “pay it forward” concept will become contagious in 2012.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — This year will find you in a position to fulfill your wildest dreams. If you have been alone, well, this year will bring you your perfect mate. If you have been hungry, well, this year will find you full with opportunity. Try not to be afraid. The universe will make this as easy as pie for you. This will fall into place without a lot of sweat and effort. You are aligning with the elements that will put you in the right place at the right time.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Take advantage of the next three months. Opportunities to expand upon your business sector will be evident now. New clients or a new work environment should be considered. Your romantic sector may need a little T.L.C. as we roll into spring time. Make a conscious effort to let your significant other know exactly how much you mean to him or her. These actions will not go unnoticed.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — If a negative outside influence has created conflict in the past with your immediate family or significant other, you may need to retrace your steps and find a solution to a long-standing problem. Hiding your head in the sand will not help. Others are watching to see exactly how you are going to handle conflict. Take a diplomatic approach and look at all of the options before blaming one specific person. You have the power to heal all wounds.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You may have felt like a bull in a china shop this past week. Trying to align a difficult situation or individual takes time, and your frustration levels are beginning to show. Step back and become peaceful with your own accomplishments. Then, start again. You will present yourself in a much better light, and your opinions will be validated. You may have noticed a strong spiritual presence within your environment as of late. Yes, it is exactly who you think it is.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Your intuition will begin to grow and develop this year like never before. You have your own personal magic about you. This year, you will be able to embrace this and utilize this to its full potential. Not only will it improve the quality of your life, but it will improve the quality of your loved ones’ lives as well. A shift with your career late spring will have you soaring to new heights emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — If you have alienated yourself from friends or family, late winter would be a good time to join the human race again. Your lack of social contacts has caused you to misplace your sense of humor. Once you revive that from the dead, you will see how much of a positive effect this has on the other elements in your life. Romance has been set on the back burner for you for quite some time. In 2012, it appears you begin to make this a priority.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Finances begin to take shape and form this year. If you have been throwing good money after bad, an outside influence will correct this problem for you. Then, you can begin to look at your long-term goals with a greater sense of clarity. What needs to “stay” and what needs to “go” will become more clear to you now. It’s time to take a well-deserved sabbatical late winter. You will come back refreshed with the energy you need to make these beneficial changes.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You start the new year out “high as a kite” with the promise of things to come. A career opportunity kicks off the new year, putting your mind at ease regarding recent financial concerns. Now that you’ve found your niche in life, you are able to expand upon your creative activities as well. Your personal life will grow and develop late spring, early summer. Your heartaches will become a thing of the past in 2012.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You will be evaluating your romantic aspects with a microscope during the next few months. You will no longer allow an outside influence to create conflict within your home or work environment. This finds you making a stand against what may appear to be overwhelming odds. The truth of the matter is, those around you have witnessed the same behavior elements you have witnessed. You’re not alone in your observations and will quickly discover how accurate you have been within your intuition. Finances take a turn for the better. 2012 promises to be a very lucrative year.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — A health scare with a family member or friend could start the new year off on a bumpy emotional ride. Trust that the universe holds the key to a solution, and the outcome will be better than the initial diagnosis. Once you’re able to move past that aspect, you come to find yourself emerged in a career opportunity that improves the quality of life for you and your loved ones. Family matters improve tremendously this year, as well as your own physical appearance.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — The past appears to hold the key to a present shift in quality of your life. Romance may have been in a deadlock for many Aquarians this past year. As we move into 2012, you will find yourself with a new perspective, and others will see you in a new and improved light. Many options within your career and personal life will be presented before the snow finally melts for the last time. Take a leap of faith!
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — The ideas that you envision for your career will finally launch this year as well as your personal life’s goals. You and your family may have experienced some setbacks in 2011. Although these may have created fear and frustration, looking back, you can see how much you have learned from these little “bumps in the road.” Romance provides a great source of strength early spring. You are finally on the same page as your significant other.
