It's the end of the Universe as we know it — Your 2012 cultural horoscope

2011 may have been insane, but 2012 is shaping up to be downright frenetic. With all the buzz around the Mayan calendar, and our obsession, once again, with the end of the world in mind, here is a brief overview of what to expect in 2012 (if we get through it, that is). Not since the cultural revolution and the swinging 60’s have the planets above been in such a similar positioning—remember that whole age of Aquarius ditty? Assuming we don’t engage in senseless nuclear warfare with our enemy du jour, 2012 is looking to be like one for the books.

Aries:
As the year kicks off, the biggest influence for Aries comes courtesy of the planet of change, Uranus. This is looking to be an exciting year as long as you’re willing to roll with the punches. That laissez faire act you have been holding on to is going to be tested. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to learn to sit with the anxious energy you’re scheduled to feel the entire year. Try not to fill your time with your normal stockpile of chores and activities. Reflect on who you are and the way you choose to express your voice. This is an excellent time to revisit old projects you thought had been developed to the hilt. It seems there is a chance to breathe new life into it, just like Jennifer Saunders has in reviving the Absolutely Fabulous franchise into a movie. We have to admit the world is a lot more colorful with Patsy and Edina back in play. Go with the flow this year. You’ll thank us.
