The following is your 2011 horoscope, dear Cancer.
Areas of Expansion in 2011 for Cancer: Beliefs, Learning, Career, Friendships, Connections
Your Cancer 2011 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
From January 1 to 22, 2011, your belief systems, learning experiences, and hunger for adventure continue to grow and expand. The first week of January in particular can bring eye-opening experiences through contact with people or places faraway or through inspired learning. Work can also expand during this period.
From January 22-June 4th, your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation grow and develop. Your talents and skills are recognized now like never before. All of the hard work you’ve put in begins to pay off and is rewarded – or at the very least, recognized.
You are in the limelight in some way during this cycle, which can be wonderful at times, but which could feel a little overwhelming at other points in your journey, especially from February to March. Challenges to your desire to expand your public image and professional scope can come by way of domestic and family demands, as well as the demands of partnership. Both of these areas of life call to you, creating a form of tug-o-war. The challenge now is to find a healthy balance. Although it’s a great period for expansion and recognition on a professional level, and you should take advantage of it, choose your projects carefully. Don’t take on more than you can handle.
From June 4th onward, your connections to others, group associations, and friendships begin to expand and grow. Through groups or friends, you might even find a new job or enhance your current one.
This is a time when you are filled with ideas about the future. You are planting seeds, so to speak, aiming to get started on projects that will reap rewards in the future. While this can be exciting, try not to take on more than you can handle. Your vision is quite optimistic, and you might over-estimate what you are capable of doing down the road! However, one or two projects can be inspiring and also quite innovative.
With more contact with others, whether it’s about an expanded in-person group of connections or online, you are sure to come up with new ideas and to be inspired. Others can point you in new directions.
Potential negatives: Over-emphasis on activities that take you away from your practical responsibilities too often.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your social life and friends base, and to dream up exciting new paths for the future. A partner can be helpful and supportive of these things. Some of you could find a partner through a friend or affiliation with a group.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Family Life, Home, Domestic Affairs
Your Cancer 2011 Horoscope points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary “slimming down” in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
This year, the area of your life that requires a “back to basics” approach is the sector that rules home, family, you roots, domestic activities, living conditions, and security. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
Tests can come to your family life in 2011. Some of you have already experienced this influence in 2010. The responsibilities and demands of domestic life can run high this year, particularly in March. There can be a feeling that others are not as sympathetic to you, or that they leave you alone to your own defenses during this period. In truth, you are learning how to stand on your own two feet, as well as to meet your responsibilities and to fix whatever it is that you have let slide in the past. At the end of this cycle, you’ll come away with a stronger foundation.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Belief Systems, Learning, Knowledge, Career, Reputation
Your 2011 Cancer Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
Until March 11th, your belief systems and knowledge continue to change and develop. You continue to experience a spiritual awakening of sorts. Learning needs to be exciting or cutting edge for you in order to keep your interest, but while you are less interested in traditional subjects or methods of learning, if you are on an educational path, be sure to “endure” some of these things so that your training is relevant to your career goals.
From March 11th onwards, your career, professional projects, reputation, and public image continue to stimulate and open. These areas of life can be unpredictable – the wild card area of life – but also highly stimulating and innovative. You can bring fresh insight into your work.
This may be a time when you take an unexpected turn in your work. Although this can happen in 2011, this influence spans many years. Make sure you don’t jump on a bandwagon that is impractical. Also, while you prefer to set your own pace in your work, try not to become a loner in your professional life. Others can have important input. By nature, you are not the biggest of risk takers, but more courage is with you this year.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Partnerships, Personality, Independence, Work, Spirituality
Your 2011 Cancer Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It’s a time for “out with the old, in with the new”.
Attitudes towards partnerships, close personal relationships, compromise, and significant others continue to transform this year. These areas of life are likely to improve from July through October. More challenging periods are possible in February, when career and public demands and goals can seem to be at odds with your partnerships.
New in 2011, your attitude towards service, health, work, and privacy are evolving in important ways. Circumstances are such that you need to develop some healthy habits, routines, and schedules. You are called upon to rid yourself of guilt about under-performing, and to develop faith and trust in a larger more spiritual plan. It’s time to let go of some of your fears that you are not doing enough, to develop more compassion and understanding of others, and to be humble, feeling safe in the knowledge that you (and others) are not perfect. It’s time to let go of some of your obsessions with rules, details, and fears of not doing things perfectly.
