Stepping back from the trees to see the forest

Seeing trees is interesting and helpful, but without an eye to the forest you won’t have context and you’ll miss the big picture. Likewise, watching the daily movements of the minor planets (Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) is helpful, but you profit the most by seeing it in context of the major players (Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto).

I’m stepping up to a weekly horoscope of the forest, which will give you the bigger picture. The major revolutionary transformations, as they affect you, will be my topic starting Sunday, April 1st.

Meanwhile, let’s do a quarterly review of 2012. Below I’ve repeated my New Year’s forecast so you can look with 20/20 hindsight. My own Libra forecast was more true than I’d imagined!
The Force of changing is with you.
Wednesday, March 27, 2012

Aries (March 20-April 19)
You have lightning-bolts in your cart for 2012. Sudden events will offer you opportunities to achieve individual success and prestige.

Your dreams have practical feet.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is a year to clean out the basement, paint it a cheerful yellow, and open your own university of higher learning.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You are in the right place, both in temperament and talent, to fully embrace the information highway explosion. Your friendships are highlighted this year, and you’ll spend more time and talk with them. You’ll want to be involved in groups that foster social change and embrace the rebel in you. It would benefit you to add a few meaningful rituals that honor and deepen your understanding of your instinctual drives. Keep some passion fruit around. Eat more pomegranates.

You are in for lightning bolts of opportunity and sudden changes in your career. You’ll find unexpected ways to break through obstacles to your success. The deeper changes you are called to make are in the area of relationships. You will re-define what you value from a partner, what your concept of cooperation is, and what you are willing to give. This year you’ll come to understand your destiny through partnerships with others.

A deep transformation in the way you express your personal power is on the astrological agenda for you in 2012. Take an instant to see yourself as holy and magnificent.
Matters of ultimate concern, life & death, love & hate, will call you to creatively re-examine your beliefs about trust and responsibility. This year you are called to take some risks, and experience a rebirth.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Time to get rid of those expired cans of soup and open up your shelf room. Your home, or the place of your roots, will undergo an in-depth remodeling. You are going to experience an enlivening of your relationships, a rejuvenation of your desire to be in partnership. Sudden changes, chance encounters, and unexpected new friends will enter your life carrying the sign, “commitment is freedom.”

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Your work will undergo sudden changes and unexpected opportunities will present themselves. You may not be very disciplined on the job, but you will have enthusiasm. Your biggest challenge, the place you want to grow and even redefine yourself, is the way in which you communicate. Media and digital communications could transform your life. You are hungry for new knowledge.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Focus on your resources, and the way in which you manage them, for they contain enormous energy for transforming your life. You will re-define your values and beliefs about money and possessions to be more in line with your true self. A deepening of the successful use of your birth potential is in the stars. Sudden, unexpected changes and opportunities will come through love affairs, children, or the expanded expression of your personal power.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Take in a deep breath of life and get ready to redefine who you are. Issues surrounding your individuality, your distinctiveness in this world, are undergoing a transformation. You consciousness is elevated beyond your day to day foibles and follies. Sudden changes and opportunities will come through your home, your roots, or real estate. It’s a taproot year for you, with new sprouts in all directions!

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Building the courage to let go of the past is going to effect transformative changes in your life this year. You’ll experience a thorough clearing of the decks, in order to make way for a new life. Sudden changes and opportunities will come through communications and your search for knowledge--you can’t get enough of either. Your keen intelligence will develop in new directions, with a heightened intuitive ability.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
Through the creative use of both success and failure, you are going to significantly affect social changes in your community and in your groups of friends. You want to take a deeper look, to really get to the bottom line, at your inner rebel. You want to free yourself to fully utilize your potential, to fulfill your destiny. Sudden opportunities and changes will come through your resources, what you value and possess. You’ll loosen the chains of ownership, and redefine what you own.

We are just waking up. This is only a bare beginning.
