Aries enters the year with Uranus at the cusp of the Zodiac sign and the moon a few degrees into it. That's exciting and marks this year as significant for those with the sun in Aries - especially If you were born in March, the beginning of the Zodiac sign.
Uranus stimulates insight, learning something advanced and coming to conclusions. Contemplation and revelation. Count on being very stimulated intellectually - not just this year, but also the following few years. That's because Uranus moves so slowly through the Zodiac (c. 4°/year). But it starts in 2012.
It's this year that you get ideas and perspectives that you will thrive on for the coming few years.
The moon is about emotions: what you long for and what gives you a sense of fulfillment. It's the symbol of the soul in your horoscope. When the moon closes in on your sun, it gives you a feeling of being whole and of living just like you want to.
The moon moves much faster through the Zodiac than the planets. It passes through Aries in just a couple of days. But since it's there in the 2012 New Year horoscope, it will have an effect all through the year - especially If you were born in March. 2012 will be full of emotional stimulation and satisfaction.
The moon is in a square aspect to Mars and the sun in the 2012 horoscope, which means that many of your emotions will be negative, triggered by drastic events in society around you and by you trying to change the way they are. Things get done, but it's not easy and not always pleasant.
Aries is in a sextile aspect to Aquarius, where both Venus and Neptune are in the 2012 horoscope. That's stimulating and positive, especially regarding your intellectual progress. You find it easy to learn new things and your imagination take this knowledge farther than you might have imagined beforehand.
The trine aspect to Sagittarius, where the Moon Node and Mercury are, again focus on your intellectual process, taking your thought process and ideas far from what you're used to. New horizons - but still approached in a manner that make them comprehensible to you.
The opposition aspect to Saturn in Libra of the 2012 horoscope reveals that you will have some burdening duties you have to fulfill, although you don't want to. They refer to your partnerships - in love as well as in business and other fields of life. This is particularly true If you were born in mid-April.
2012 Zodiac Sign Predictions
Your Zodiac sign, also called your star sign, is simply the position of the sun in your horoscope at the moment of your birth. The complete horoscope includes the planets, the astrological Houses, and the aspects between planets. That's a whole lot more.
Therefore, 2012 predictions based only on your Zodiac star sign can't be very precise. Still, they give some general clues, since the sun is almost as important in the horoscope as it is in the sky above us.
It shows your situation and sentiment when you're not involved in other things, for example when you rest or are unoccupied by something special.
A 2012 astrological prediction based only on what Zodiac sign your sun occupies can only be vague and incomplete. It may also be completely wrong, if other ingredients in your horoscope contradict it.

Anyway, for your amusement - above are a few words about what the year might hold for you who are Aries, based only on your star sign. Take it for what it is.
