Areas of Expansion in 2011 for Taurus: Friendships, Connections, Spirituality, Personality
Your Taurus 2011 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
From January 1 to 22, 2011, your connections to others, group associations, and friendships continue to expand and grow. The first week of January can bring surprising and likely pleasant events associated with these matters. Friendships made through work or business contacts can be especially fruitful.
From January 22-June 4th, your spiritual world, compassion, private life, and tolerance expand and grow. What’s happening during this cycle is designed by the universe to prepare you for the next cycle detailed just below. Matters from the past are magnified in your life now. You are sorting through what attitudes serve you well, and what behaviors need to go in order for you to grow and improve. This is generally a warm, protective cycle. Some challenges are possible, however, especially from February to April. Work matters can seem overwhelming at times, and they can seem to interfere with your quest for increased solitude, private time, and rest. Your transforming belief system can at times feel tested, and you might struggle with an attachment to past beliefs and behaviors.
Potential negatives: Escapism. You might often be tempted to escape your everyday responsibilities and challenges, and should avoid reliance on drugs, drinking, or other “glamorous” forms of escape.
From June 4th onward, your personality, image, and confidence in yourself are expanding to new levels. Taurus, you are seeing whole new possibilities. Your vision of life is now panoramic. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world grow exponentially. Freedom is something you seek, but be wary of the costs of freedom when it’s pursued without necessary attention to responsibilities.
In 2011, this growth process seems to be quite positive. You might begin to see eye to eye with a partner or find that a significant other seems quite supportive of your efforts towards self-improvement. Expanding your horizons through higher learning or travel might be especially rewarding. While you may have struggled with your personal philosophy and belief systems earlier this year, now you feel confident about your behavior aligning with what you believe is right. Friends can also be supportive, and might also be integral in your quest for more from life.
You won’t feel much like sitting around during this period of your life. You are hungry for new experiences. Everyday stresses that may have frustrated you in the past now seem almost inconsequential, as your vision is lifted above the mundane. As such, your ability to manage stress and pressure increases. You are more tolerant in your attitude towards others.
Potential negatives with this position: Weight gain, pompous behavior, restlessness, over-confidence, wastefulness. See to it that these things don’t ruin an otherwise excellent period.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Work, Health, Daily Routines
Your Taurus 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 can run away with itself.
This year, the area of your life that requires a “back to basics” approach is the sector that rules work, health, daily routines, employees, pets, and habits. 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 work and working relationships in 2011. Some of you have already experienced this influence in 2010. Responsibilities in your daily life can weigh heavily this year – they appear magnified, particularly in February and March, after which your attitude towards them improves greatly.
For those of you unhappy with your job or out of work, you are not likely to jump to grab just any position now. You are looking for something mature, long-term, and reflective of your values. Because you are more discriminating now, the pickings might seem to be slim. There can be confusion about where you are headed, ultimately, in your professional life.
The monotonous part of your work can seem harder to take, and it’s up to you to work on restructuring enough to make it work for you. Try not to see flaws and complain. Take it upon yourself to make whatever adjustments you can that will improve your working conditions.
Health matters might be a little more problematic than usual. With your attitude change in June, minor complaints are likely to clear up.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Friendships, Spirituality
Your 2011 Taurus 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 social life continues to stimulate and open. Your friends are opening your mind to exciting new things, and it’s easier than usual to form new and perhaps unusual friendships. In January, a friend might open your eyes to a possible new career path.
From March 11th onwards, you enter a lengthy period of review of past attachments and those things keeping you from exploring your individuality and the things that make you unique. This process will span many years, and at first there can be some elements of your private life that are exposed. This might feel uncomfortable for now, but it’s part of a process that involves detaching yourself from certain areas of your private life and your past. The aim now is to free yourself from attitudes that have restricted you from moving forward with your life.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Mentality, Learning, Finances, Intimacy
Your 2011 Taurus 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, belief systems, and learning continue to transform this year. New in 2011, your finances are evolving in important ways. Dependencies on others are revealed and could feel uncomfortable. The ways you handle money need to change, but also your attitude towards how effectively you can make an income, save, and depend on yourself.
You experience a strong need to eliminate things you no longer need. Since last year, you have been doing a form of spring cleaning, perhaps voluntarily or due to necessity. You are not viewing your possessions and property in quite the same way. Perhaps you’ve had to downsize or gone through a big move that involved eliminating unessential personal possessions. For some of you, this might still be forthcoming. As a Taurus, this had to be a big challenge. However, you might find that your attitude towards moving forward has improved as you rid yourself of excess baggage – the literal has led to the figurative.
Shuffling around your finances is likely this year. You might find others are supporting you financially, but you need to avoid creating dependencies that will put you back where you started.
You are going through a rebirth of sorts. Some of you might learn a new trade or enhance your skills set.
