2011 Horoscopes Overview
2011 Overview Horoscopes
2011 is sure to whip by for you, dear Aries. Life seems to be speeding up, just enough for you to take some personal risks and to make important, if not ground-breaking, changes. Jupiter and Uranus settle in to your sign this year, and both stimulate the urge for freedom and push you out of your regular routine, in different ways. Relationship tests continue this year. If an existing partnership is no longer serving you well, or if a potential partnership doesn’t cut the mustard, you may feel that you’d rather not have any. Some of you will endure stresses and challenges in a partnership, and that relationship comes out stronger. Single Aries are less likely to enter a new partnership. If they do, they do so cautiously, or only if the relationship appears solid and mature. Pluto continues to put pressure on your career goals and reputation. Are you being as responsible as you should be? If not, then changes are necessary. You are more accountable for your actions, and some of you may question whether a particular career path is a true reflection of you. From January to June, Jupiter, the planet of plenty, moves through your sign, and you have confidence on your side. You don’t much care for being tied down or restricted. Certainly, you’re being pulled in many directions, particularly in February and March, with major outer planets in strong aspect to your sign in 2011. From June forward, Aries, a shift occurs that has you knowing your value and attracting more money or possessions into your life. From July to October, especially, many of you will enjoy a pay increase and/or more recognition for your capabilities. You are valued, act like you deserve to be valued, and as a result, attract better fortune. This may not fall into your lap – you’re likely to work hard for it. Uranus, the planet of change, is in your sign from March forward (in fact, until 2019!), encouraging you to detach yourself from certain elements of your past so that you can start fresh, in pursuit of a lifestyle that is more authentic. When Uranus first stimulates your Sun or Ascendant, you could find that you’re acting out – rebelling, even. As you become more accustomed to its energy, you are more active than reactive. The plus side of this influence is that you feel fresher, more energetic, younger, and more expressive. You are able to free yourself from limiting situations and attitudes. Do be careful, however, that you don’t alienate others with a self-centered, defensive attitude. The effects of change agent Uranus in 2011 will be felt most by those of you born March 21-26.
Yes, there’s more hard work to do and increased daily responsibilities for you in 2011, dear Taurus, but you’re also going to really enjoy yourself. Once every twelve years or so, Jupiter enters your sign, and this is one of those years! From June, 2011, until June, 2012, the planet of plenty graces the sign of Taurus, bringing noticeable improvements to your environment as well as self-confidence to your personality. You are more obviously expansive, exuberant, and enthusiastic. This transit heightens your optimism and increases your generosity. What happened in the past is not very important to you now – it’s the future that you’re eyeing now. You are filled with faith in the universe – faith that everything will work out. You feel considerably more free to be yourself, and others tend to accept you more readily. You might need to guard against becoming too full of yourself or overly self-interested, however. There is also a risk of overindulgence. In the first half of 2011, however, you are likely to find more joy in solitude and time to yourself. You are building your inner confidence. You are coming out of a cycle this year that involved some level of detachment from previous friends and introduction to brand new social circles. You may have met more friends through your career. In 2011, that cycle finishes and a new one begins that could involve you with more work behind the scenes and less visibility in your career. However, with Neptune close to completing a long-term cycle affecting your career, less ambiguity is likely to be felt. You may have felt dissatisfied yet couldn’t muster up the motivation to do much about it. The end of this cycle is nearing. You’re also learning to let go of outworn attitudes and circumstances. There will be times this year when you feel distinctly overworked and when you don’t always feel that you get the recognition for your hard work that you deserve. Shifts and changes in the distribution and sources of your money are likely this year, due to eclipse action in 2011. In the second half of the year, intimate or sexual opportunities are likely to abound for you, Taurus. It becomes very easy to count on others for support, both emotional and financial. Do watch for excesses if you are suddenly able to take out more loans. July through October is an especially strong period for attracting or enhancing a committed relationship. It’s also good for travel and educational opportunities.
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 are 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. See also: Scorpio Yearly Horoscope 2011 – Details.
From January to June, dear Sagittarius, the year 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.
Your life is becoming clearer and your personality more independent in 2011, dear Aquarius. There are two strong astrological indications for you becoming more assertive and active this year. For one, dreamy Neptune is exiting your sign (although it won’t do so permanently until 2012). This points to the closing of chapters on a spiritual quest for meaning – on a period in which you tended to go with the flow. With the exception of the last 2-3 days/degrees of Aquarius, you have passed the Neptune conjunction that acted to soften your disposition – that had you absorbing the moods of those around you to the point that your own temperament was rather changeable. The second indication is your ruler, Uranus, entering the more aggressive, active, and independent sign of Aries in March where it will stay for many years to come. From January to June, excellent opportunities in communications are in your forecast. It’s a strong period for studies, writing, and other mental pursuits. More joy can be found in these pursuits, although you can have a tendency to take on more than you can manage at this time, so watch for this! More daily contact with friends is likely now as well. You’ll thoroughly enjoy sharing your knowledge and ideas with others, and learning from others as well. You’re likely to increase contact with people now, and find it quite pleasant to do so. In June, Jupiter, the planet of abundance, begins its year-long journey through your home and family sector. During this period, you’ll be paying more attention to the pleasures and comforts of home. You might be bringing friends to your home more often (entertaining). Some of you will literally expand your residence or property ownership by moving to a new, more spacious residence or acquiring new real estate. Others might find there are new additions to the family. It’s a good time for setting right any problems you may have had with family in recent years. You are unlikely to be especially adventurous during this period of your life. Travel for pleasure may not occur at all or may be reduced this year. There is a tendency to stick closer to home in 2011. Many of you will be doing more behind-the-scenes work in your career. 2011 is not a year for big promotions or special interest in career matters (2012 will be!).
Personal finances, communications, and learning are big themes in your life in 2011, dear Pisces. There is considerably less dwelling on the past this year. You are less inclined to get stuck in your emotions and more militant with yourself about moving forward – about moving past your hang-ups and guilty feelings. Friendships this year are of a serious quality. You’re really probing their depths, requiring more intensity and less superficiality in your interpersonal relations. Career goals in 2011 revolve around making money and communicating your knowledge, while last year you were more interested in authenticity and aligning yourself with your goals on a personal level. You wanted your goals to reflect the real you. Now that you’ve achieved this, you are focusing on making a good living with your career and diversifying your interests. From January to June, 2011, you can have a real sense of having enough, and possibly more than enough, as far as material resources go. You might enjoy a pay increase or receive significant gifts. However, you might at the same time feel a pinch when it comes to sources of money beyond what you actually earn from employment – financial support through loans, shared resources or a spouse’s income. A partner might take issue with how you spend your money. Support from others may not be as forthcoming as it has been in the past, and this requires you to assume more independence in terms of making your own living. From June forward, you can derive much satisfaction from learning and communicating. Your career might involve more activity in communications at this time. Your personal interests grow, and you might take on a number of new projects or studies. Be careful not to overload yourself now, or you might find that your daily life is a little too hectic. You might align yourself with a group or network that helps you to feel supported and fulfilled later this year. The balance between attention to home, personal goals, and private life and attention to career and public life can be an issue in 2011. With Uranus leaving your sign in March (permanently this time), you’re likely to feel less volatile and unsteady. You no longer feel the need to make a splash when it comes to asserting your independence. Relationships also begin to settle down.
