The following is your 2011 horoscope, dear Libra.
Areas of Expansion in 2011 for Libra: Work, Health, Partnerships, Intimacy, Shared Finances
Your Libra 2011 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
From January 1 to 22, 2011, your work, health routines, and daily routines continue to expand and grow. The first week of January can bring unexpected opportunities in these realms, such as a new work project or job offer, for example.
From January 22-June 4th, your partnerships, relating abilities, and powers of negotiation grow and expand during this period. New partnership opportunities (yes, even plural) can arrive now, or the chance to bring fresh energy to an existing committed relationship emerges. Relationships entered into now are generally successful and happy — mutually beneficial. Sometimes, this transit absolves an existing partnership, but if this is the case, it is likely to come as a relief or it is a “blessing in disguise”. Meeting someone better for you may be a reason for this.
You can negotiate more successfully than ever, and, if applicable, win in legal matters. Financial benefits could possibly come through partnerships. Legal matters or challenging relationship problems from the past can be resolved, and more casual disputes can be settled as well. You may find yourself taking on the role of consultant or advisor, or you could benefit from help from same. Good publicity may come your way. If your work has you working with or before the public, you can safely expect increased popularity. Relationships and partnerships benefit from expansive, warm energy, difficult relationships may be absolved, and/or successful new ones are entered into during this period.
Challenges, however, can occur in February and March. A partner may seem too extravagant or freedom-loving at this time. Deeper personal issues can make you wary of embracing change in a partnership. Resistance to change can cause problems.
From June 4th onward, your intimate life is enlarging and is likely to bring you some joy and new discoveries. During this cycle, you learn to embrace inner change in order to feel more empowered. There may be more opportunities to find support, financial and/or emotional, but you should be wary of living on credit and borrowing too heavily from the future.
Potential negatives: Taking on too much debt or relying too heavily on others for support.
Otherwise it’s a strong period for opening yourself up to others and to feel more confident about your own depths, particularly from July through October 2011, when support for home projects is strong.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Personality, Image, Outlook
Your Libra 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 your personal mannerisms, personality, image, and appearance. It also rules how you initiate things — your first impulse for coping with day-to-day demands. 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.
In 2011, you are likely to be more cautious and, at times, pessimistic. Some of you have already experienced this influence in 2010. Illusions about the self, the body, and personal abilities will no longer be tolerated. The end result is a newfound identity and a realistic understanding of the self. In terms of career and projects, outward signs of progress may not be as forthcoming, yet the work that you do during this transit will lay a foundation for future success and progress!
It’s a strong time for literally slimming down if that’s a goal. You can more successfully begin new and improved health regimens, diets, and the like, simply because it is a time when you look in the mirror and see yourself clearly — not what you want to see. You can be more serious during this phase, with more concern for your responsibilities and duties. You are getting in touch with your inner strength.
Try not to come across as a heavy during this period — not everyone is going through the same cycle at the same time as you. The tendency to do so might be quite strong in March, when a partner or other important people in your life appear to be too extravagant, flippant, or less concerned about doing the responsible thing.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Work, Daily Routines, Partnerships, Relationships
Your 2011 Libra 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 work, daily routines, and health 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 now, although you might be impatient with rules and schedules. Daily routines can be chaotic and your energy tends to be up and down.
From March 11th onwards, you enter a lengthy period in which partnerships and relationships with others can be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. You are more attracted to people who are free-spirited, individualistic, and possibly even eccentric or unstable as close partners; or you attract these types of people into your experience. You are learning about giving freedom to others, and this isn’t always easy.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Home, Family, Career, Learning, Travel, Communications
Your 2011 Libra 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 home and family continue to transform this year. There can be a retreat into yourself during this cycle as you explore, on a very deep level, your roots, childhood conditioning, and feelings of personal security. Challenges are more likely in February. Improvements are likely to be felt from July through October.
New in 2011, your ability to manage the demands of daily life is tested, and changes may be necessary in order to become more effective. Your personal belief system is also evolving this year.
