2012 Year Ahead

No other year has gotten as much hype as the year 2012 except maybe Y2K.  The fact that in the Mayan calendar it ends on a major cycle only suggests a new cycle is beginning.  A new, new age of spirituality is emerging.  With every cycle a bottom, dark period has to be reached before individuals like you and I begin to start fresh.  So it goes with the collective Consciousness too.  A movement of change emerges in 2012.  An exchange of power from the hands of the older generation to a younger generation begins, but not easily, or readily as we have already seen in world events.  The recession continues but this isn’t Granny’s depression, we’re all working hard to get out of bad financial situations in 2012.  This could in fact be one of the most important years of this decade. 

Yes, many Major planetary aspects take place in 2012.  The most potent is the Uranus/ Pluto square.  Uranus squares Pluto at 7° - 8° of the cardinal signs of Aries and Capricorn.  The sign of Aries is forward moving ruled by Mars and Capricorn ruled by Saturn is the status quo and business oriented and slower moving.  Mars starts 2012 by retrograding in the sign of Virgo ruler of health and workers.  This is the waxing square of the cycle that started in the mid 1960s, with the conjunction of these two planets in mid Virgo.  This square is a symbol of innovation competing directly with the corporate power elite which could be challenged in a new and positive way, especially that this is a U.S. election year.  More importantly this square is in effect through 2015 challenges a whole generation of people.  It brings about a Renaissance or provokes a Revolution.  It skips a generation and affects not our children but our children’s children.  It is like having one foot in the past and one foot in the future.  We are challenged to somehow hold onto the traditions of the past but also radically change and be innovative with one foot in the future, being prepared to move forward and eventually leave the past behind.  Where do revolutions always start, with the working class.  We are apt to see more rioting throughout the world in 2012.  We could ultimately see working conditions and health conditions improve as a result of this transit.

The planet Uranus is known in astrology as the "Awakener” and represents dramatic change, invention, revolution and higher awareness, its effect is at times strange, shocking, unpredictable, and erratic.  Uranus frees us when our lives have become too structured.  Uranus rules electricity, electronics, rockets, airplanes, and pilots.  Uranus governs modern technology, inventors, scientists, and the radioactive, heavy metallic element known as Uranium. 

Pluto represents globalization, destruction, transformation and renewal, its effect is grinding, ruthless and extreme.  Pluto always acts in order to make conditions better, but it makes us feel as if we are battling invisible forces. Pluto rules complete transformation.  A classic example of how it operates is Urban Renewal.  It demolishes and then builds anew.  Both of these planets are Tran’s personal planets, that are distinctly non-personal and emotionless, yet their effect is dramatic and very deeply felt.  Both Uranus and Pluto are planets that change circumstances around us that we have no control over.  The square is the most challenging of the planetary aspects representing tests and challenges; its effect is stressful and at times frustrating. 

Innovative changes in 2012 that have to do with housing and energy could come about in 2012, by in fact reusing a power source or something that has decayed or is already there.  Maybe we will be powering our homes differently.

Beginning in March 16th 2012 a lunar occultation of Pluto occurs.  This is the first anywhere on Earth since January 19th, 1935.  In 1935 Amelia Earhart became the first person to fly solo across the Pacific Ocean, and the unemployment rate dropped in the USA.  It will occur every month now from today up to August 17th 2013.  An occultation is an event that occurs when one object is hidden by another object that passes between it and the observer.  The word occultation is an astronomical term.  It can also refer to any situation wherein an object in the foreground blocks from view an object in the background.  The Moon is the ruler of housing, family, and women.  We could definitely see some women rising into prominence because of their willingness to take chances and go against the grain.
In July the planets Mars, Uranus, and Pluto are involved in a potent T-square with the opening of the energy being the sign of Cancer, ruler of home, family, and letting go. As usual the cardinal planets are all about taking charge of one’s destiny instead of being told what to do.  This is why this Cardinal T-square spurs revolutions in certain areas of the world, and sometimes violent ones.  
The planet May 11th, 2012 Saturn conjuncts the fixed star Spica located at 23° Libra for a 2nd  time and then again on Aug 14th  2012,  August 22nd, 2012 the Moon, Mars, and Saturn are conjunct Spica.  The fixed star Spica is said to convey Wealth, fame, honor, glamour, it is called the "Fortunate One".  Spica looks like one star, but is actually two stars.  So we have a mixture of upheaval and reward in 2012.  
June 6th 2012 Transit of Venus across the disc of the Sun the last time Venus transited across the Sun was in 1882, over 120 years ago.  September 30, 1882, the world's first hydro electric power opened, which is yet another suggestion that we are on the verge of another powerful source of energy in 2012.  It changed our lives and gave everyone a better life, could we be on the verge of yet another source of energy that improves our quality of life in 2012.

June 11th, 2012 Jupiter enters Gemini the sign of communications, vehicles, gadgets, and how information is exchanged.  We could see major innovations here that improve our exchanges of information and even how we get from one place to another.  Jupiter is in its detriment in the sign of Gemini and doesn’t like the superficiality of the sign of Gemini. 

The planet Saturn finishes its transit through the sign of Libra ruler of justice, relationships, and “the rules” and on October 5th 2012 Saturn enters Scorpio the sign of power, partnerships finances and   death and rebirth. 

December 21st , 2012 an extremely close conjunction of the Winter Solstice Sun with the crossing point of the Galactic Equator (Equator of the Milky Way) and the Ecliptic (path of the Sun), what that ancient This is an event that has been coming to resonance very slowly over thousands and thousands of years.  It will come to resolution at exactly 11:11 am GMT.  The new, New Age is born.

2012 is going to be a year of change where flexibility is necessary.  Embrace the new changes coming into your life while keeping the past in perspective.  It could be a turbulent year of change but things must change for a new generation to have a chance. 
  • There will be major firsts by women
  • A new source of energy using recycled material will be implemented large scale
  • Urban Renewal will take off in 2012
  • TV continues to be challenged because everyone wants to voice his or her opinion in 2012
  • Astrology will be in the News again in 2012
  • keep your Picket sign close it’s yet another year of rioting, revolts, and revolutions throughout the world
