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 this 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, and this 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, and 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.
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 turn a blind eye to 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.
