Capricorn/Capricorn Rising* (Dec 21-Jan 19): Inspiration for you can sometimes feel like a part-time job. You have an uncanny ability to make your life more difficult than it has to be. 2012 will require a conscious choice of dissolution of your attachment to how you think about what you own. If you haven't learned it already, everything works out in the end. You tend to want to know how in lieu of possessing faith. To have faith demands a willingness to suspend the methodical process of how self-actualization should occur. This Monday's full moon has all the makings of how you ride the seesaw of self-consciousness and awareness of others. The more you focus on what you can do for others, the less likely you'll fall into a neurotic trap of feeling like you are not enough. You are.
Aquarius/Aquarius Rising*(Jan 20-Feb 19): Sometimes a warrior has to go up the hill for a battle for which he will not return. Since November, you have been called to make sacrifices for the greater good. To strengthen your intimate relationships, you realize that you must delve into our motivations and our needs. Like Sisyphus, you sense that you start the ball rolling up the hill only to see it roll back down again. Managing your expectations can make all the difference between having more pleasant encounters and walking around gloomily thinking about worst-case scenarios. Playing the role of warrior (especially when you know why the battle happened in the first place) resoundingly beats being a servant to an unfulfilling relationship. Know what you value as you observe what others feel is worth fighting for. Maybe it's all relative, but that's no excuse to fight just for the sake of fighting. Peacemaker is a role you can play, too.
Pisces/Pisces Rising (Feb 18-Mar 20): Like Aquarians, you can feel that your only recourse is role playing. Both signs are transpersonal. It's not enough for you to be concerned with just you and yours; you must tackle the larger collective issues. Even if it is simply a prayer or mediation for the less fortunate, it is important to lend your energies to those who have less. When you focus only on yourself and your success, there can be the classic "divine discontent." This feeling that something is missing prods you on to contemplate the timeless truths and golden rules.
Aries/Aries Rising* (Mar 21-Apr 19): This full moon on Monday, January 9, highlights your ongoing struggle to balance your ambitions to make your mark in your chosen career and your need to retreat into your private space where love and acceptance abound. No doubt you have immense energy to perfect your work or craft. However, it is best to slow down to realize that perfection is not 100 percent. If it were, you'd have no further place to continue any evolution. This is one year to not go back on any resolutions. It may take a longer time than usual for them to stick, but discipline wins the day.
Taurus/Taurus Rising* (Apr 20-May 21): You were born to produce something of value as a legacy. Sounds lofty? Yet, you are the only concentrated earth sign born in the middle of spring. Like the celebration of Beltane (May 1), you are a symbol of fertility. To think about the beginning of summer in winter keeps your heart warm and open. As you pursue what you love, you create art, romance and joy with all you contact. If you are going to worry, concern yourself with the morally unavoidable aspect of your effect upon the children around you. Face it, no matter how they protest, they do look to sound and stable adults to guide them. Find a symbolic Maypole to represent something in common and to dance around. You are a touchstone (and role model), whether you like it or not.
