It is a mystery why we fall in love. It is a mystery how it happens. It is a mystery when it comes. It is a mystery why some loves grow, and it is a mystery why some loves fail. You can analyze this mystery and look for reasons and causes, but you will never do any more than take the life out of the experience.
Love is more than the sum of the interests and attractions and commonalities that two people share. And just as life itself is a gift that comes and goes in its time, the coming of love must be taken as an unfathomable gift that cannot be questioned in its ways.
You need to treat what love brings you with kindness. If you find yourself in love with someone who does not love you, be gentle with yourself. There is nothing wrong with you. Love just didn’t choose to rest in the other person’s heart.
If you find someone else in love with you toward whom you feel no love, feel honored that love came and called at your door, but gently refuse the gift you cannot return. Do not take advantage; do not cause pain. How you deal with love is how love will deal with you, and all our hearts feel the same pains and joys, even if our lives and ways are very different.
If you fall in love with another who falls in love with you, and then love chooses to leave, do not try to reclaim it or to assess blame. Let it go. There is a reason and there is a meaning. You will know it in time, but time itself will choose the moment.
Remember this and keep it in your heart. You don’t choose love. Love chooses you. All you can really do is accept it for all its mystery when it comes into your life. Feel the way it fills you to overflowing, then reach out and give it away. Give it back to the person who brought it to you. Give it to others who seem poor in spirit. Give it to the world around you in any way you can.
Love has its own time, its own season, and its own reasons for coming and going. You cannot bribe it or coerce it or reason it into staying. If it chooses to leave your heart or the heart of your lover, there is nothing you can do and nothing you should do. Be glad that it came to live for a moment in your life. If you keep your heart open, it will surely come again.
General: 2012 is the year to come out of hiding, Aquarius. Saturn, your traditional ruler, will be making his way to your sector of fame and recognition this year, so get ready! Your standing in the world takes on great importance, especially during the latter half of the year. Neptune is finally leaving your sign in February, removing the cloak of invisibility and any residual feelings of victimisation from your life once and for all. The total Solar Eclipse in your career sector in November is another huge catalyst, boosting your professional status up to the stratosphere. You were born under the sign of fame, so this year’s spotlight is in total keeping with your destiny, darling. It’s time to let your greatness shine.
Love: Your romantic sector gets plenty of planetary action in 2012, bringing an abundant supply of love and pleasure. Venus will be visiting this corner of your horoscope for an extended stay between April and August. When Venus goes retrograde, approximately between May and June, you may enter a phase of reflection and reconsideration over recent romantic developments. You may also encounter an unexpected reunion or two with lovers from your past. In any case, you’ll be revisiting some sweet memories. With two of the most beneficent planets blessing the romantic house of your horoscope during the second half of 2012, how can you go wrong? Enjoy your fate as a hopeless romantic without having to suffer the tragedy of unrequited love. If anything, you’ll be the one turning down offers.
Career and Money: Your star is clearly rising in 2012, Aquarius. You’ve been in a bit of a gestation period for the past few years, but you’re getting ready to unveil your genius. 2011 may have been a stalemate, but you’ll realize that you were simply collecting experiences, ideas and dreams all to be put to good use in 2012. Beginning in October, Saturn will be sitting strong at the top of your chart for the next few years, giving you proper focus and discipline. And with Mars powering up your sector of resources and other people’s money for the first six months of the year, you should have no trouble asking for the backing you need to get large scale plans off the ground. No playing small. This is your year to see and be seen, Aquarius.
Friendship: With a recent series of eclipses in your house of friendships, you’ve cut so many people out of your social sector that that anyone left standing is probably golden. This June there is another Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in this part of your chart, so watch your urge to purge mates. You could go a little bit overboard because your standards are incredibly high when it comes to who is good enough to receive your time and love. This is not the moment to make any enemies, especially when you may find yourself surrounded by people who are meant to be in your life. Certainly wait until after the magical Transit of Venus on June, when magic, pleasure and fun are your modus operandi.
Health: Your heath is about to get ten times stronger after February, when Neptune leaves your stars for good. In recent years you were much more susceptible to picking up things from others (both emotionally and physically). This damaged your immunity, but now that you’ll be free of Neptune’s fog, you can let get back to a healthy regime. It will be easier to cut out alcohol and “fantasy” foods that feel good but may not be good for your body.
Never really bought into this whole astrology thingamajig. This sounds promising but let’s just take it slow and figure things out one by one shall we?
