2011 Horoscopes Overview
2011 Career & Money Horoscopes (Forecasts)
You are a natural pioneer, dear Aries, who, like the Ram, pushes through battles. In 2011, your independence is reborn. Those of you in business partnerships might find the set-up restricting this year.
From June until the end of the year, you are likely to work on increasing your income. Some of you will find that money comes to you. If it does, you need to control your spending so that it stays with you! June to July is an excellent period for money matters, not to mention increased prestige. October to November is good as well. The best sources of money seem to be coming from publishing, promotion, imports/exports, and foreign dealings. Tax rebates might also be in the picture.
Work you have done in the past or in private could also bring rewards this year. Your career this year continues to evolve. Avoid paranoid feelings about your position, particularly around the end of February. Do whatever you can to keep everything aboveboard on the professional front.
You could, at times, feel overly exposed or accountable, but positively, this can motivate you to clean up sloppy areas. All year, professional matters require deep and lasting fundamental changes. There can be tests to your level of expertise, and possibly even exposure of your areas of weakness. Treat these as challenges to improve.
Changes may seem more challenging in February and March, but significantly easier from July to October. You will also be challenged to improve your skills set. Do what you can to learn as much as possible about your trade.
From June to the end of the year, Jupiter, the planet of plenty, travels through this finances sector of your chart. During this cycle, you at least feel like you have plenty. Some of you will enjoy pay increases and/or receive large gifts or benefits, which is more likely from July to October. Be careful that your inflated sense of worth doesn’t lead you to purchase too many things. Career efforts can be rewarded.
From June through to the end of the year, dear Taurus, lucky Jupiter is moving through your sign. This transit continues until June 2012, and happens only once in an approximately 12 year period. As the ruler of a sector that rules money from other sources (beyond your personal income),
Jupiter’s presence in your sign is excellent for attracting support, financial or otherwise. “Other” sources of income can include money or resources from a spouse, loans, tax refunds, and the like.
The only caution here is not to overdo it, as Jupiter has a way of stimulating excesses through overconfidence or a feeling of abundance. From July to October, Pluto helps you out and this can be an especially strong period for money matters.
Mercury, as ruler of your personal income sector, travels through your sign from May 15-June 2, and this can bring increased earnings or gifts into your life. It’s also a fine period for asking for a pay increase.
Career matters are evolving this year. For one, Neptune is nearing the end of its long-term transit through your career sector. While this won’t officially end until 2012, certainly, the fog is lifting. Confusing elements surrounding your career and professional goals are leaving your life in 2011.
Also, the ruler of your career sector, Uranus, changes signs in March. This only occurs once every 7 years or so, and represents a change in focus. Some of you will be going into business for yourselves with this shift. Professions that require serving others or being the power behind the throne, and that revolve around private matters, can come into focus now as well.
Your social life picks up its pace from January to June this year, dear Gemini. It’s a time of interesting connections, and for some of you, partnering opportunities can be made through or with friends and group associations. You particularly enjoy sharing your expertise with your associates and networking.
From June forward, you can experience a greater love of solitude. It’s not that you’re unsociable during this period – it’s more about feeling quite comfortable when alone, and there’s an important difference between the two states of mind.
As well, you will find that putting others’ interests ahead of yours tends to bring you the most rewards. You may be doing a lot for others, but you’ll be enjoying doing it! For some of you, in the second half of 2011, partnering opportunities may be made through the Internet or other channels that allow you to connect anonymously at first before meeting.
Again this year, those of you who are dating or involved in a more casual romance will find that you’re a little more serious and selective. For all of you, in the second half of the year especially, you tend to go with the flow in romance rather than rush in. Parents might invest more money and time into their children’s hobbies, or find themselves creating more structure for their kids. Creative pursuits that most attract you now are those that generate tangible rewards, and you may be putting more energy and work into your own hobbies.
A long-term cycle that’s influenced your career for many years is coming to an end in March, 2011. With this cycle’s end, dramatic ups and downs in your career path tend to subside, although you are still required to adapt to more subtle shifts. Your aspirations begin to change.
The cycle that begins with this one’s end is bound to shake up your social circle. Some friendships may be left behind, and new ones are made, although they may not be quite as reliable as the ones you had in the past.
July through October can be a strong period for finances – both material and emotional support is more readily available to you. June is an important month for taking charge of your life and beginning new long-term projects.
The second half of the year can bring more emotional energy to a partnership, and for singles, the possibility of a new partnership altogether. Overall, Saturn’s influence this year is good for feeling on track, stable, and strong enough to meet life’s challenges. You are less inclined to rebel or react in 2011, and more inclined to live in a more authentic manner – true to yourself.
With Jupiter moving through your entire career sector from January to June this year, dear Cancer, you’re likely to find your joy in professional or public avenues. You’re also likely to receive some form of elevation – recognition, a promotion, or the like. Some of you will be discovering your true calling professionally speaking. What you’ve learned in 2010 can now be applied to your life in more concrete ways.
You’re likely to be feeling very hopeful when it comes to your work, and this attitude can certainly attract positive circumstances into your life. You simply need to watch for a tendency to take on too much! 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 through to the end of the year (and beyond), the focus is on making connections – very positive ones – as well as new ideas. Your job might bring you into contact with new people.
With Jupiter expanding your social circle and your desire to plant seeds, so to speak, you simply need to watch for excesses. For example, you might begin so many new projects that you find yourself scattered across them. However, while many of them may not survive, some will, and can benefit you greatly later. Those of you born June 22-27 will experience a period in which liberation from restrictive circumstances is a strong drive in 2011.
Changes can come, or can be made, very suddenly under this influence that appears to speed your life up and stimulates you to take some personal risks. July through October is especially excellent for making connections, including love connections. A partnership may be attracted or strengthened.
Even so, love relationships are far from easygoing and straightforward in 2011. Shifts in power are likely. The general craving is for a more traditional, even old-fashioned, sort of romance, but there are challenges to be faced in this pursuit.
You are required to let go of some of the unhealthy habits and attitudes of the past, and July through October is a fine period for working on doing so. Home life continues to need a lot of work in 2011. You might be feeling the weight of responsibilities and feel “alone in charge”. You will be attempting to bring more structure and order to your home life, as you may be feeling a little stifled in your current surroundings.
2011 brings rewards as your spirited attitude and competent manner get attention, dear Leo! From January to June, you are benefiting from an attitude that attracts warm energy into your life. Daily stresses and strains just don’t seem to be as worrisome for you during these months, as you would rather focus on the bigger picture. Your view of life is broad, and even panoramic. You are setting your sights higher.
Do not ignore opportunities to further your education and experience – you’ll use the lessons you learn from them to take better advantage of Jupiter’s transit of your career sector running from June 2011 to June 2012, which can bring more chances of promotion, a better position, or simply more enjoyment and fulfillment from your career.
Leos thrive on recognition, and this transit brings it on. It’s not wise to rest on your laurels, or to take on too many new responsibilities, as much as you feel equipped to do so. More advice: you may be so tied up with projects that you have less time to fraternize with siblings, neighbors, and acquaintances than you used to, and they’re likely to feel the withdrawal.
While attention to other matters seems to take precedence, don’t wall yourself up too much. Prepare yourself mentally for communication and transportation issues – mechanical breakdowns or more repairs may be necessary, particularly in February and March, 2011. Getting from A to B may be a little more stressful at this time, for any number of reasons. Those of you in the midst of studies should probably watch for sudden changes of heart in terms of the subjects they’re focusing on.
Consider whether switching around programs is really worth the extra time. If it truly is, then go for it. Just be aware that you can be very impulsive at this time (after March). A long-term influence that has affected your partnerships for many years is nearing a close in 2011. This influence has likely brought some confusion or ambiguity, and possibly some disillusionment, to your relationships, and this can now be wrapped up and put behind you.
Love relationships seem to be positive this year, with a greater need for enjoying adventurous activities together. You might find that your attractions are changing, as you may be favoring more confident and adventurous sorts this year. Single Leos may be finding more opportunities to find love through their career from June forward.
2011 is likely to be a more settled year for you emotionally, dear Virgo. From January to June, emotional and/or financial support is likely to be more forthcoming. However, there is a possibility that a reduction in personal income (or perception that you don’t have enough) can lead you to seek out more support from outside sources.
Be as patient as you can when it comes to money in 2011. Think twice about taking on new expenses and new debts. Consider whether they’re truly worth the added worry! Gear up your mindset to consider the long term. Over the coming years, you’ll be learning much about financial independence.
From June forward, consider beefing up your education, or possibly expanding your experiences through travel. Your spirit now is quite adventuresome. You can enjoy a more positive, forward-looking outlook on life. Less concern about problems that typically would have you worrying is likely during this cycle. You deserve it!
In recent years, the status quo has been blown out of the water when it comes to partnering. You’ve likely experienced experimental or alternative ways of relating, whether this was voluntary or not. This long-term influence leaves your life in March, and you are now in the position to process the lessons you’ve been learning about what you truly want from a partnership.
Love continues to stir intense feelings in you this year. Your view of relationships is evolving. You also benefit from living your life according to your own values, not simply reacting to what others are (or aren’t) throwing your way. Rebelling can, eventually, lead you back to yourself with greater understanding, and this is “where you are at” now. In recent years, work has been a little muddled.
Schedules have been more challenging to keep. The reason for this has been Neptune’s influence on your work and health sector, and this year, Neptune begins its move out of that sector.
More clarity and purpose will slowly but surely come to you in this area of life in 2011 and 2012. As a Virgo, you can sometimes find it difficult to give yourself enough credit or value.
This year, use the power of Pluto to learn to love and value yourself more. In previous years, Pluto was in a sign that was incompatible to yours, and this has served to magnify some of your own insecurities. Now that Pluto is harmonizing with your sign, harness its power to heal and strengthen by ridding yourself of attitudes and habits that make you feel less powerful.
The year ahead continues to add personal responsibilities to your plate, as 2010 did, dear Libra, but 2011 also offers some real joy in others – in the first half of the year, partnering brings new discoveries, and in the second half, support (emotional and financial) comes from others as they recognize your needs.
In 2010, you may have felt that you were alone and in charge. This year, you continue to learn how to stand on your own two feet, but others are more supportive.
This is not to say that love relationships are smooth sailing. In fact, big changes in the dynamics of close partnerships (personal and business ones) are necessary. You will need to allow a partner more freedom and space, and there will be times when you feel that you suffer as a result (particularly when Saturn in your sign opposes Jupiter in Aries, the sign that represents “others” in your life, in March). There is no need to play the martyr. In fact, that kind of behavior is entirely frowned upon with fair-minded Saturn in your fair-minded sign. If you allow others more freedom, you should also feel free to take some for yourself.
There can be joy in your partnerships, and some blessings, but also some uprooting. You are unlikely to feel that you know where you stand, and this uncertainty can be exciting but sometimes worrisome.
Those of you born from October 3rd forward will feel Saturn’s influence the strongest, and Saturn brings the need to take care of matters that you’ve left untied, unfinished, or that you’ve neglected altogether. The ultimate message here is to mature and to feel more in charge of your life, although you can sometimes feel singled out.
Support is much easier to find from July to October. You might enjoy strong opportunities for presenting your ideas, or you could find that your influence and powers of persuasion are enhanced at this time as well. Job offers might arrive, or there could be improved working conditions. Partnerships can be enhanced with increased communication.
Fundamental changes in your home and/or family continue to be necessary. You might feel that you are more in a position of being in charge when it comes to family life. A long-standing influence leaves your life in 2011 – this influence has wreaked some level of havoc on your daily schedules and work. As such, you might find that you begin to lead a more scheduled, organized life.
2011 brings communication, learning, partnerships, work, and health into strong focus for you, dear Scorpio. January can bring fruition to a creative project or a job offer in the creative fields, and the possibility of excitement in a romance.
From January to June, some joy can be found in work and daily routines, as long as you don’t overload your plate with too many new responsibilities (your confidence that you can handle more might stimulate you to overreach). Improved working conditions or new job offers might be part of the picture now.
From March forward, you may turn to alternative health methods, discovering new regimens that you’re especially motivated to incorporate into your life. Changes to how you approach your daily life are in store. Nine to five is unlikely to bring much satisfaction, and you might experiment with new schedules or working from home, which can point to more flexibility, although effective time management becomes important. Altogether new routines will be necessary. Health can dramatically improve, and you might find that you’re taking more pleasure in managing it.
While 2010 likely brought more opportunities to socialize and enjoy yourself, new relationships may not have been very serious or long-term in quality. 2011 brings partnership opportunities of a more serious or involving nature. This influence begins in June, 2011, and runs until June of 2012. There can be a relationship that brings much joy into your life – a connection that puts a bounce in your step. More freedom may be necessary in existing partnerships. Stale or lifeless routines and dynamics in your relationships will no longer be tolerated.
Your social life continues to be strong in 2011, but there is more focus on quality now. Some of you will be faced with decisions between more than one person as a partner! Communication and learning continue to be areas of evolution and change in your life.
Your powers of influence run exceptionally high – others are truly listening to what you have to say. You may be communicating about matters that you previously kept very much to yourself, and this can be felt as a relief. You may also find great pleasure in research or other serious study. Shifts in the distribution and sources of income are also likely this year.
From January to June, dear Sagittarius, 2011 brings fullness to your social life, to romance, to creativity, and to your life with children. You are likely to stumble upon more opportunities for recreation and leisure during this period.
You might take up new hobbies, and you might meet someone who gets you into new social circles or into places where you meet people. Romance can be very enjoyable, although it may not always last.
Friends may be disapproving of the time you spend pursuing romantic or creative matters and financial constraints can also weigh heavy if you are spending too much on entertainment or hobbies, but as long as you don’t over-emphasize the fun side of life so much that other areas of life suffer, you should find this period of your life very enjoyable!
From June forward, you take special pride in your usefulness to others. You might be tempted to take on more work than you can reasonably manage, however, so be careful not to overload your schedule. Job opportunities might arrive, or improved working conditions can figure strongly now. You are taking more interest in work as well as health during this period, and it’s an excellent time for discovering new and even enjoyable health and fitness routines. It’s also a very favorable time to get a new pet!
From July to October, there can be financial benefits from your increased attention to work. You can be very focused on what really matters to get ahead.
Friendships taken on this year tend to be serious in quality – you might make friends through business or you could be attracted to friends who are mature or who could teach you something important. There can be some slimming down in this area of life. Tests to friendships can weaken or break some. Good ones strengthen.
Your long-term goals mature in 2011. You are thinking far into the future, and practicality is a huge consideration.
A long-term cycle that brought some instability to your home and family life ends this year. This cycle may have also brought some unpleasant surprises or rebelliousness.
By March, 2011, this influence ends. Eclipses this year put special focus on spending habits (you need to take charge of your finances) as well as your relationships with others (you need to find a balance between independence and your need for other people in your life).
Creatively speaking, you will be blossoming this year and in coming years – you are discovering new and unique forms of creative expression. Overall, 2011 should be a more stable year for you.
Plenty of hard work and lots of play are headlines for you in 2011, dear Capricorn. From January to June, the year brings expansion to your family life and to your inner world. This can point to increased feelings of security and joy in your home life, even though you may experience additional responsibilities in this area of your life.
You are building your confidence on an inner level. You might literally expand your home by moving to a larger residence, or you might welcome new additions to your family. Greater comfort in the home is likely during this period, and you might not be feeling exceptionally adventurous.
Work, however, brings increased demands this year, so there can be a tug-of-war going on that requires some real juggling on your part, particularly in February and March. As well, you might feel the limitations or more confining aspects of your home life more acutely this year, and you might feel that something will need to break!
From June 4th forward, you will be taking this increased sense of personal self into the world – expressing yourself creatively and perhaps romantically, and generally enjoying yourself more. You have been doing a lot of “work” on yourself recently, and now is the time to share the “new you” (which is still, in fact, in the process of evolution). New hobbies are very possible now. You might go out to parties more often.
Romantic expression can be very exciting, although it should be said that the planet involved here is Jupiter – a planet that expands a little too much at times. There can be more opportunities in your romantic life, but perhaps excessively! The emphasis is on dating rather than long-term romance right now in your life.
Many Capricorns will be enjoying the single life rather than tying the knot this year. Important projects may come to fruition in 2011, and this can be a time for reaping their rewards, but there can be some disappointment now as well if you haven’t achieved what you wanted to achieve.
Otherwise, you might enjoy important successes and advancements. You are more accountable for what you have and haven’t done – and even more aware of your social standing than you typically already are.
Financially speaking, you are moving away from a spiritual, somewhat passive approach and towards a more active, slightly more risk-taking approach to making money. You will no longer sit back and wait for it to come to you. There is an edgier quality to your personality in 2011. You are discovering your rough edges and learning how to manage them.
Jupiter’s trine to Pluto from July to October is a strengthening one for business and career in general. Because Pluto rules your career and reputation sector, dear Aquarius, you can benefit with an upgraded reputation and generally happy influences on a professional level.
During this period, you are likely to be quite content focusing more on your personal and home life. Even so, opportunities will arise that help you out on the career front. Some of you will be working from home or as the power behind the throne this year.
With responsible Saturn in healthy relationship to your Sun throughout 2011, you’ll be projecting a steady, reliable, and competent manner that can most definitely win you respect and support, if needed, particularly from those in a position of authority.
Neptune enters your finance sector this year and stays briefly before retrograding back. Neptune will set up shop in this area of your solar chart next year, and will move through it for many years to come. In 2011, you might experience the beginning of a long-term cycle in which your values and attitudes toward money will change and shift. There may be times during this cycle that you ignore or gloss over practical affairs, and you need to watch for carelessness.
Better times to research rather than take financial risks occur when Mercury is retrograde, as Mercury rules your fifth house of speculation and eighth house of shared resources: from March 30-April 23, from August 2-26, and then November 24-December 13.
From January to June, the communications industry can be a good area of focus for your money-making endeavors. It’s a favorable period for spreading the word about your business. With Saturn in your ninth house, you are coming across as quite credible, and this helps significantly. Jupiter’s trine to Pluto mentioned above can also have a pleasing impact on income from business in the latter half of the year.
Jupiter moves through your income sector from January 22-June 4, and this brings a feeling of plenty, at the very least. This transit can bring increased income (money earned by you, not through others) for some, and a tendency towards extravagant spending and waste for others – and sometimes both! Because Jupiter rules your career sector, it’s a good sign for pay increases. But as noted above, money coming from others (not your own salary) might be a little pinched in 2011. Save as much as you can.
When it came to your career and professional life, last year you were riding on your personality. It seemed as if you were selling yourself, and this worked best for you. In the first half of 2011, however, you are learning more about your own value, and you are looking to translate that into income. From June forward, your focus is likely to be (or should be) on communicating, word of mouth, and daily involvement for maximum success. From July to October especially, you are likely to really profit from networking activities.
Money is more likely to come to you when the rulers of your money sectors are in your sign. This occurs when Venus and Mars are in Pisces, and the dates are March 27-April 20 and February 22-April 1. Job offers or professional attention tend to come your way more readily from February 19-March 20.
