Areas of Expansion in 2012 for Capricorn: Romance, Creativity, Children, Work, Health, Self-Improvement
Your Capricorn 2012 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until June 11, 2012, your romantic and creative worlds continue to 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.
This influence began last June, but may have been dormant in the last quarter of 2011. You begin 2012 with an increasing feeling of creativity and playfulness. Others tend to look upon you with affection.
Potential negatives: Excessive emphasis on, or attention to, having fun to the detriment of other life departments.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel supported and confident during this cycle that began in June 2011. You can also be more forthcoming when it comes to expressing parts of your personality that you previously held private.
In March especially, there can be wonderful opportunities to express yourself in creative ways, and romantic opportunities can abound.
From June 11th onward, your work, daily routines, and health routines begin to expand and grow. This is a time when your work projects or duties expand, or you have more employment opportunities. You can be so confident of your abilities to take on projects and endeavors, however, that you overload your plate, so do watch for that.
Until June 2013, you tend to find more joy in your work (as long as you don't overload), self-improvement endeavors, and taking care of your health. If you provide a service to others, it is likely to go especially well. You are more successful in hiring people to work for you, if applicable, and improvements to your working environment are likely. It can be easier than usual to find employment now. You may get a new job during this cycle, or significantly improve an existing one. Work tends to be very available to you.
You are proud of how useful you are to others during this cycle. The more integrity and honesty you bring to your services, the more "payback" you will receive. Health is likely to prosper now, and medical procedures or programs, if necessary, are more apt to be successful. There may be an inclination to put on some weight, however, if you don't watch your sweet tooth. Some people get a new pet during this cycle.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Career, Professional Goals, Reputation, Friendships, Group Efforts
Your Capricorn 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 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 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.
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.
You may acquire a higher position now, and you are likely to feel the weight of increased responsibilities that come with it.
In May and July specifically, there may be some challenges balancing your personal and professional lives. Be a little more cautious about keeping your personal life separate from your professional life.
From October 5th onwards, the area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules friendships, group and community involvement, and personal dreams and ideals. 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.
Tests can come to your friendships during this long-term cycle. You may find that you are more discriminating when it comes to making new friends, or that circumstances are such that you spend less energy networking and involvement in your community or in teams and groups. Existing friendships may experience some tests or trials during this cycle, and one or possibly more friendships may end. Ones that are true, however, will strengthen.
There can be some feelings of loneliness now, as it can be difficult to find what you are looking for in friendships now. Keeping friendships strong requires effort. In 2012, however, there can be nice opportunities to make long-lasting connections. As well, you may be able to turn dreams into reality in a communications project or a presentation of your ideas. It's a time for making solid plans for your future.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Communications, Daily Life, Home, Family
Your 2012 Capricorn Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
Last March, you entered a lengthy cycle in which family and home life can be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. This influence is with you throughout 2012 and beyond. You may decide to move during this cycle, or be in the position to, or you could dramatically change your attitude towards your domestic life. More freedom is sought, and if your current domestic set-up feels confining or limiting, you'll need to make important changes. Your attitude towards the past and traditions is also transforming quite quickly. Old ties to your past may be severed, and at times this can be unsettling, but ideally you are taking important steps towards carving out an identity that better suits you.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Personality, Image, Appearance, Defense Mechanisms, Work, Spirituality
Your 2012 Capricorn 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".
Your outer personality and the ways in which you approach life and challenges continue to transform this year. Your personality continues to reshape in 2012. You will need to resist the urge to control the events of your life, how you come across to others, and your manner during this important cycle. You are learning about your inner motivations, and sometimes this can be an uncomfortable process because you are getting in touch with the darker elements of your psyche at the same time. However, you are ultimately learning that you cannot control the events of your life and you cannot control others and how they feel about you, but you can learn self-control.
Service to others, work, daily routines, and health are evolving in important ways. You are learning about self-care through improving your daily routines, bringing more order and organization to your life, and taking better care of your health. Recognizing your personal limitations in terms of just how much you can give to others and just how much compassion and understanding you can show is essential now. You are also learning to rid yourself of guilt about under-performing, and to develop faith and trust in a larger more spiritual plan. It's time to let go of some of your fears that you are not doing enough, to develop more compassion and understanding of others, and to be humble, feeling safe in the knowledge that you (and others) are not perfect.
