GEMINI January Horoscope 2012


The first week of January is an interesting, albeit confusing start to the New Year regarding relationships.  It is as if you have a secret plan of how you want things to go.  Try to maintain a practical mindset and consider that there are other opinions which have to be considered.

You may notice that the things you value in another, especially in a living together situation, aren’t necessarily what ignite your passionate side.  For instance you may love to keep a neat and orderly home and love it that your significant other folds their socks just so, but your spirit cries for some kind of disorder to get your heart racing.  It’s really just not about the socks.  In any case this contradiction within yourself does spark a little soul searching and cause you to make an effort to keep your thoughts and emotions on the same page. 

Mid month you may find that you interests are sparked on a particular subject. You will want to read all you can for it seems to hold metaphorical qualities that resonate with your life experience thus far.  Your goals and ambitions will be guided from the information and experiences you gain this month.  How to progress in your career may also tie in with your new found interests. Careful on the 22nd when the sun squares Jupiter – it is likely your thoughts will run away with you and what practical information you gather this month may be blown away by too much far out daydreaming. 

There is more than meets the eye to any relationship issues you have at the start of the month and you will think quite differently about them once the month draws to a close. Several transits occurring from the 23rd until the end of the month advise against trying too hard to change a friend or lover or even co worker.  Keep it real as best you can dear Gemini. Real change in yourself and/or others takes time and endless patience.

TAURUS January Horoscope 2012


It will be an active month for you Taurus.  During the first week of January it looks like you will have no problem saying exactly how you feel.  It may ruffle a few feathers.  No matter, it was bound to happen.  Of course if you hadn’t held it in so long there would be a better chance of it coming out a little sweeter and …well tactful is the word I am looking for.  Don’t get me wrong you have every right to express how you feel but it is the way you say it that can affect the reaction from others.  There is still much potential to learn and grow from the experience whether or not the end result turns out how you had hoped. 

There are some great influences during the second week of January that propel you toward organizing and beautifying yourself and your environment.  A fresh change to your appearance and living space could brighten your mood. 

By mid month you will be glad that you got those things off your chest during the first week of 2012.  Expressing your thoughts has made you feel lighter and less burdened.  Although your mind may race on the 22nd leading you down an impractical train of thought and what you choose to share with others may not be taken as objectively valid. Energies will wane from there until the end of the month after mars goes retrograde in your fifth house on the 23rd.  As good as it feels to get things out in the open some things really are best left unsaid, at least for a while.  I am sure you caught that contradiction.  What I mean to say is that there is a time and a place to say what you need to say – if you hold it in too long it isn’t good and if you blurt it out impulsively …well, it’s about balance.  With all the eleventh house activity mid month perhaps there are lessons to be learned about friendships.  You can strengthen them through tough times or snap them in two if you let the pressure build.  Keep cool Taurus.
