Areas of Expansion in 2012 for Aquarius: Home, Family, Romance, Children, Recreation, Hobbies
Your Aquarius 2012 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until June 11, 2012, your inner world, family life, domestic activities, and domestic arrangement continue to expand and grow. Relations with family can be more pleasant and supportive. You might move to a new home, likely a bigger one, or expand real estate holdings. Family itself can expand, or there might be an addition to your home. Some might take on a roommate for example, or bring more friends to their home. Entertaining in the home can be emphasized. Do be careful about overextending yourself with home improvements, or larger accommodations that cost more. Your personal life tends to overshadow your professional life or material activities during this cycle.
On a more psychological level, you might increase your confidence in yourself and feeling of security during this period.
Potential negatives: Excessive money spent on home improvement, too much emphasis on the home to the point that other areas of your life suffer.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle, and especially in March. This is a time of nest-feathering - a cycle that began in June 2011.
From June 11th onward, your romantic and creative worlds expand and grow. You are learning to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, and more willing to take some personal risks in order to do so. Some of you may have recently, or might this year, turn a friendship into a romance. Friends can be instrumental in getting you out and about, or could turn you on to a new hobby or form of recreation. Romantic opportunities tend to abound during this cycle. Creatively speaking, you can be filled with ideas and plans for realizing a dream. Some of you could be welcoming another person's children into your experience.
This influence is with you until June 2013.
Potential negatives: Excessive emphasis on, or attention to, having fun to the detriment of other life departments. This is more likely to occur in June and July, when you may be glossing over important practical details. Watch for a tendency to gamble or lend indiscriminately during this period.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel supported and confident during this approximately year-long cycle.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Belief Systems, Learning, Career
Your Aquarius 2012 Horoscope points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
Until October 5th, the area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules higher learning, belief systems, travel, and adventurous experiences. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence has been with you for some time, and certainly throughout 2011. Some of you will have felt it more strongly in the past, and others are becoming more aware of the influence in 2012, depending on when you were born.
Tests can come to your belief system or learning endeavors during this cycle. The need for solid, practical training can become very apparent now. You might scrutinize the belief system that you have held to date, and question your faith - in others, in yourself, and in life itself. You are seeking out practical and workable solutions to problems. You might find that your ability to travel or engage in higher learning is limited during this period, for whatever reason. You may not be as adventurous, preferring to stick around home and your neighborhood, or perhaps for some, stuck there. However, overall this is a period of greater realism and practicality. You are more able to meet your responsibilities.
From October 5th onwards, the area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules career, profession, reputation, and public life. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence begins October 5th, 2012, and is with you until September, 2015. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on when you were born.
During this cycle, your career requires important decisions and choices. Important projects may come to fruition, and this can be a time for reaping their rewards, but there can be some disappointment now as well if you haven't achieved what you wanted to achieve. You are more accountable for what you have and haven't done.
Projects that you have been working on behind the scenes or that you've left unfinished might come to fruition or you could be using them to further your career. Your career might involve more altruistic goals or helping others could figure strongly. You may need to employ some caution with regards to elements from your past, as it might come before the public eye in some way during this cycle.
You may acquire a higher position now, and you are likely to feel the weight of increased responsibilities that come with it.
While this period can be a tad difficult at times, in 2012, it's likely to be a rewarding period. A stronger ability to make money and to spend and save it wisely is with you.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Finances, Values, Communications, Learning
Your 2012 Aquarius Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March last year, you entered a lengthy period in which communications, learning, and connections can be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. This influence is with you throughout 2012 and beyond. You are opening yourself up to expressing your more unique ideas. Your daily life is bound to be very colorful. Regular encounters with neighbors, relatives, and acquaintances, as well as everyday activities and business activities, are all changing quite dramatically. In addition, your basic mental attitudes are evolving. Your interests can become quite eclectic during this cycle.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Spirituality, Work, Friendships, Romance, creativity
Your 2012 Aquarius Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It's a time for "out with the old, in with the new".
Attitudes towards spirituality and the past continue to transform this year. In March especially, purging of past attitudes and confronting inner demons feels rewarding and positive. You are confronting deeply buried aspects of your psyche. You will be learning unusual things about the hidden side of your nature, and with this knowledge you are also learning to control it. Things that you've buried, such as past events that you are ashamed of, emerge and require you to handle them. Facing your ghosts honestly is required of you now and in coming years.
Friendships, romantic relationships, and creative matters are going through transformations, sometimes dramatic ones.
