Areas of Expansion in 2012 for Libra: Intimacy, Shared Finances, Travel, Education, And Belief Systems
Your Libra 2012 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until June 11, 2012, your intimate life continues 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.
This influence began last June, but may have been dormant in the last quarter of 2011. You begin 2012 with a wonderful attitude and you can continue to grab opportunities that help you to feel on top of your life and empowered. Conversations are deep and lead to discovery. Sexuality is richer. There can be benefits and support coming your way through others, whether it's money back from the government, you have an easier time getting loans or mortgages, a partner's income increases, you inherit something valuable, or whatnot.
Potential negatives: Taking on too much debt or relying too heavily on others for support.
Otherwise it's a strong period for opening yourself up to others and for feeling more confident about your own depths. March is especially strong for support, particularly with regards to family and home matters.
From June 11th onward, your belief systems, learning experiences, and hunger for adventure begin to grow and expand at a rapid pace. This is a time in your life when you don't sweat the small stuff as much. You see the broader perspective on life, and you generally feel supported, so that smaller inconveniences don't stress you out quite as easily. Your positive outlook is fabulous during this cycle. Learn as much as you can now, in preparation for the next cycle that puts your career on center stage. You'll want to be prepared!
New learning experiences as well as "life" experiences (travel, adventures, contacts with others of a vastly different culture than yours, and so forth) are likely to emerge. Over the course of the coming year, you might have the opportunity to publish your ideas or to reach a broader audience. You might choose to learn a new language or other studies. Be cautious in June and July, however, when you may be lured along a path that has you neglecting important duties and responsibilities.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Personality, Image, Outlook, Finances, Values
Your Libra 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 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 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, 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.
From October 5th onwards, the area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules personal finances, income derived from your own efforts (this excludes shared finances and financial support through debts and rebates), personal possessions, self-esteem, personal talents, and personal values. 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 financial affairs during this cycle. You are challenged to better manage your personal resources, and to come up with a fair and realistic assessment of your value or worth as well. You may be necessarily more cautious about entering into heavy financial commitments during this period, and more cautious in general with spending. Worries can surface about your earning power, but as you progress, the ideal end result will be a stronger sense of what you are capable of earning, better spending and saving habits, and a more realistic budget. Cutting back on some luxuries may be in order, but you may just discover that the security you gain is more important than the luxuries you let go.
Overall this should be a rewarding cycle for coming to a better position in the management of your material resources. You are exceptionally security-minded at this time and you can begin or step up savings plans.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Partnerships, Relationships
Your 2012 Libra 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 partnerships and relationships with others can be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. This influence is with you throughout 2012 and beyond. You are more attracted to people who are free-spirited, individualistic, and possibly even eccentric or unstable as close partners; or you attract these types of people into your experience. You are learning about giving freedom to others, and this isn't always easy, particularly from June to September, when disagreements about or with family can surface. Relationships can be unpredictable at this time.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Home, Family, Career, Learning, Travel, Communications
Your 2012 Libra 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 home and family continue to transform this year. There can be a retreat into yourself during this cycle as you explore, on a very deep level, your roots, childhood conditioning, and feelings of personal security. March can bring positive change and development to your home life. Challenges might surface from June to September, when instability tends to reign. Building your "nest" comes into strong, positive focus in December.
Your ability to manage the demands of daily life is tested, and changes may be necessary in order to become more effective. Your personal belief system is also evolving this year.
