Areas of Expansion in 2012 for Scorpio: Partnerships, Self-Knowledge,
Your Scorpio 2012 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until June 11, 2012, your partnerships, relating abilities, and powers of negotiation continue to grow and expand. New partnership opportunities (yes, even plural) can arrive now, or the chance to bring fresh energy to an existing committed relationship emerges. Relationships entered into now are generally successful and happy -- they seem, at least for the time being, to be mutually beneficial. Sometimes, this transit absolves an existing partnership, but if this is the case, it is likely to come as a relief or it is a "blessing in disguise". Meeting someone better for you may be a reason for this.
This influence began last June, but may have been dormant in the last quarter of 2011. You begin 2012 with stronger and richer relating skills.
You can negotiate more successfully than ever, and, if applicable, win in legal matters. Financial benefits could possibly come through partnerships. Legal matters or challenging relationship problems from the past can be resolved, and more casual disputes can be settled as well. You may find yourself taking on the role of consultant or advisor, or you could benefit from help from same. Good publicity may come your way. If your work has you working with or before the public, you can safely expect increased popularity. Relationships and partnerships benefit from expansive, warm energy, difficult relationships may be absolved, and/or successful new ones are entered into during this period. Your income might be enhanced by a joint venture or by work in consultation or relationships.
Potential negatives: You may be attracting partners who are more concerned with freedom than with pairing, or who seem to be quite extravagant.
However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy an improved social life, and in particular, communications with someone important to you during this cycle. You learn a lot through your experiences and interactions with an important "other". This is especially true in March, when opportunities abound for you, particularly through group associations, your neighborhood, and through contact with friends. Single Scorpios looking for a partner shouldn't pass up opportunities to meet with like-minded individuals and should take "referrals" from friends seriously.
From June 11th onward, your intimate life begins to enlarge and bring you some joy and new discoveries. During this cycle, you learn to embrace inner change in order to feel more empowered. There may be more opportunities to find support, financial and/or emotional, but you should be wary of living on credit and borrowing too heavily from the future.
Until June 2013, you are likely to have opportunities to grow on intimate and financial levels. Sexuality is richer. You are more generous and others are more generous with you. Inheritances or funds coming in can figure now, or a partner's income can expand, indirectly affecting your income.
Potential negatives: Taking on too much debt or relying too heavily on others for support.
In June and July particularly, you may need to deal with romantic illusions or you may need to be cautious about financial risk-taking - gambling and lending indiscriminately. Otherwise it's a strong period for opening yourself up to others and for feeling more in charge of your life.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity For Scorpio in 2012: Spirituality, Personality, Appearance, Outlook
Your Scorpio 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 continues to be the sector that rules spirituality and retreat. 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.
All that lies beneath the surface in your life is now coming up for inspection, and you are forced to do some serious "spring cleaning" of your psyche. Getting rid of outdated attachments, and examining and discarding irrational fears, is not only necessary for further growth and development -- it's ultimately a huge relief. You may be attracted to alternate ways of living, and to self-study fields, such as psychoanalysis. Do your best not to dwell on past failures or guilt for what you haven't done during this cycle. Detach yourself from these things as much as possible.
You might be a little more private when it comes to sharing your ideas with others during this cycle. Thoughts can often turn to the past.
From October 5th onwards, the area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules your personal mannerisms, personality, image, and appearance. It also rules how you initiate things -- your first impulse for coping with day-to-day demands. 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 you are likely to be more cautious and, at times, pessimistic. Illusions about the self, the body, and personal abilities will no longer be tolerated. The end result is a newfound identity and a realistic understanding of the self. In terms of career and projects, outward signs of progress may not be as forthcoming, yet the work that you do during this transit will lay a foundation for future success and progress!
It's a strong time for literally slimming down if that's a goal. You can more successfully begin new and improved health regimens, diets, and the like, simply because it is a time when you look in the mirror and see yourself clearly -- not what you want to see. You can be more serious during this phase, with more concern for your responsibilities and duties. You are getting in touch with your inner strength.
Try not to come across as a heavy during this period -- not everyone is going through the same cycle at the same time as you. However, this influence in 2012 tends to be quite positive. Others are seeing you as more responsible, and you might attract a special admirer in part because of this. You are inclined to view creative projects in a more practical light, and could quite successfully work on bringing more structure to them, building a strong foundation for future profits. A pastime can be turned into a profitable venture. You can work harder and with more concentration on personal projects at this time. Some of you could become authorities or masters at a particular skill or topic. Self-discipline is more natural.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Romance, Creativity, Work, Health
Your 2012 Scorpio 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 period in which your work, daily routines, and health can be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. You can bring fresh insight into your work now, although you might be impatient with rules and schedules. Daily routines can be chaotic and your energy tends to be up and down. Ultimately, you are looking for a more authentic expression of yourself on the level of work, and while it can be a little chaotic for now, you are learning to tap into your "inner genius".
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Communications, Learning, Finances
Your 2012 Scorpio 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".
Communications, learning, and daily life continue to transform this year. This can be an excellent period for studies, writing, and communicating, especially in March. However, there may be some challenges from June through September due to a chaotic daily life and lack of structure.
Your finances are evolving in important ways. You will be called upon to strike a balance between your own needs for security and comfort and the same needs of other people, such as those of a significant other.
