Areas of Expansion in 2011 for Leo: Intimacy, Belief Systems, Learning, Travel, Career
Your Leo 2011 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
From January 1 to 22, 2011, your intimate life continues to grow and expand. The first week of January in particular can bring eye-opening experiences on an intimate level, with a lover, concerning creative matters, or with a partner. You have been learning to embrace inner change in order to empower yourself. It feels good! You may have more opportunities to find support, financial and/or emotional, but should be wary of living on credit.
From January 22-June 4th, your belief systems, learning experiences, and hunger for adventure begin to grow and expand. This is a time in your life when you don’t sweat the small stuff as much. You see the broader perspective on life, and you generally feel supported, so that smaller things don’t stress you out quite as easily. Your positive outlook is fabulous during this cycle. Learn as much as you can now, in preparation for the next cycle that puts your career on center stage. You’ll want to be prepared!
Potential negatives: Taking on too many studies instead of expanding your knowledge of one or a select few topics.
Challenges may be faced in February and March, as work and daily routines may demand too much of your time for you to travel, study, or otherwise expand your experiences.
From June 4th onward, 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 boost your spirits, especially from July to October. 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.
Your hard work and effort can be recognized now, and you could find yourself in a position that truly suits you. For some of you, more prestige or a higher social standing may be part of the picture now. You might also bring more creativity to your work, or you could be recognized and esteemed for your creative hobbies.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Communications, Daily Schedules
Your Leo 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 communications, learning, and local transportation. 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.
Challenges can come to your communications in 2011. Some of you have already experienced this influence in 2010. You may feel pressure to produce ideas, and to make them work in the “real world”. A certain somberness in your outlook may be characteristic of this phase, as it may be a time of worry. It may seem like acquaintances and sometimes siblings are blocking your growth in some manner, and these relationships may be strained as a result. Although you have a desire to make contacts, you are now rather preoccupied with learning or other mental projects, and you may view idle chit-chat as a waste of time. You may feel an unusual pressure to structure your time and effort, and to cut out communication that seems unnecessary. You may at times feel rather overwhelmed by such things as errands, red tape, and other such day-to-day “disruptions”. By the end of the transit, however, you will have ideally gained a greater depth of understanding, having focused on information and communication that you really can use to feel more effective in the world.
There is a great need now to structure your life by way of schedules, managing daily details and your time more effectively. There can be some problems with local transportation — getting from point A to point B. February and March can be the more challenging period of the year for these matters. There can be some restlessness or an urge to get out and about, but you might feel somewhat weighed down by your daily responsibilities.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Intimacy, Support, Belief Systems, Travel
Your 2011 Leo 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 intimate life and support systems from others continue to stimulate and open. These areas of life can be unpredictable – the wild card area of life – but also highly stimulating and innovative. The first week of January can bring eye-opening experiences in this realm of life. Relationships with others, particularly love and close partnerships, are expansive and larger than life.
From March 11th onwards, you enter a lengthy period in which your belief systems and knowledge change and develop. You experience a spiritual awakening of sorts. Travel opportunities may arise. 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. Life experiences are unpredictable and exciting. You are embracing change and easily incorporate changes into your personality.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Work, Health, Daily Routines, Friendships, Love Relationships
Your 2011 Leo 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 work, daily routines, and health continue to transform this year. These areas of life are likely to improve from July through October. More challenging times are possible in February, when restlessness or the urge for more life experiences seem to be at odds with your work and routines.
New in 2011, friendships, group associations, creativity, and romantic involvements are evolving in important ways. There is a need to learn about the value of the team in your life. New group associations may be made, friendships can expand, and you are challenged to find a balance between your romantic life and your associations with friends. Creative endeavors are strong, but you may need to give up some of the credit in order to incorporate others into a team effort.
