2011: Libra Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
2011 Overview for all Libra. 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 Details. Jupiter entering Aries on January 22nd strongly affects you, as Jupiter is now in opposition to your Sun and occupying your solar seventh house, your partnership sector. From January 22nd until June 4th, you may enjoy benefits through marriage, serious partnerships, common-law partnerships, business partnerships, negotiations, and/or contractual agreements. This is a year in which you are more likely to establish, or solidify, a significant partnership; or you could be enhancing an existing relationship. You can negotiate more successfully than usual, and, if applicable, you are that much more likely to win in legal matters or other forms of official negotiations. Financial benefits could possibly come through partnerships. For most of you who are already partnered, you are likely to find more joy in close relationships due to a more easygoing and tolerant attitude towards others and partnering in general. Legal matters or challenging relationship problems from the past might more easily be resolved now, and even more casual disputes are likely to be settled during this cycle. The need for freedom in your social relationships is strong, however, and if it is not forthcoming, you could feel caged in and restless. 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 involves the public, you can safely expect increased popularity now, or you might receive good reviews, feedback, or word-of-mouth opportunities. Relationships and partnerships benefit from expansive, warm energy, or successful new ones are entered into this year. These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. Also, although Jupiter is generally considered a positive and happy energy, close relationships could end during this cycle, but if they do, it’s generally in order to move on to a happier, healthier, more tolerant relationship. A warm, open, and honest approach to others wins you positive new relationships, or enhances existing ones.
Jupiter then enters your solar eighth house, on June 4th and through to the end of 2011 (and beyond). During this cycle, you may see benefits in any of the areas ruled by the eighth house–joint finances, shared resources, loans, taxes, sexuality, intimacy, healing, personal transformation, research, investigation, and psychological matters. This is a time of increased psychological understanding, intimacy, and perhaps accumulation of wealth if you manage your resources well. This is an excellent time to work on financial planning and strategy. You are more capable of helping friends and loved ones who are dealing with a crisis–you can be leaned upon. Your ability to understand and accept anything that is deep in meaning or significant is enhanced now, and you instinctively realize that the path to healing is to face your fears. Any type of in-depth study or research is likely to go well. In some cases, a significant tax refund, inheritance, inheritance, or other such benefit might arrive during this transit. Financial gains may come through a partnership or there may be an increase in a spouse’s income. Sexual opportunities are likely to abound, or your focus on one partner becomes more expansive, warm, and intimate. This could be a time of purging yourself of literal or psychic “junk”, as there is a sense that de-cluttering your life will be beneficial to your emotional well-being. Benefit can come through jointly held resources, loans, or taxes. These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar eighth house, from June 4th to August 30th, and then from December 25th forward.
Saturn continues to transit your solar first house all year long. Your physical body and mannerisms are a focus during this transit. Depending on your current age, it may be a time when you feel your age or accept it. This is an excellent time for beginning health regimens, diets, and the like, simply because it is a time when you look in the mirror and see yourself clearly – not only what you want to see. Your outlook on life is more serious and responsible. In the past while, you might have reached out to others in an attempt to validate yourself, looking for ways to boost your confidence. When these attempts failed, you may have felt temporarily let down and discouraged. Rest assured that Saturn will re-work these feelings, with your help of course, until you reach a point where you have a stronger sense of self. This is a year in which you can get to that point. This transit acts to transform your self-confidence in such a way that you question the source of your confidence to date, and discover a more solid base for pulling up inner strength. Saturn here acts to rip away the superficial. 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 your own limitations, and your capabilities as well. 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!
Saturn has passed its conjunction to your Sun so that the more challenging and direct influences of Saturn in your sign have dissipated in 2011.
In terms of work and daily routines, you may have been moving towards a more irregular schedule. Your working hours may have become non-traditional, or you might be moving towards a more unconventional job. You have been restless with routines, and tend to answer to your own internal rhythm rather than paying attention to society’s (and perhaps nature’s!) rhythms. Work that is monotonous, limiting, or lifeless really has been dragging you down, and you tended to tackle tasks with erratic or haphazard energy–you work tirelessly at certain times, and procrastinate at other times, for example. This influence leaves you in March 2011.
Uranus enters your solar seventh house and opposes your Sun for those of you born September 24-28th or with an Ascendant of 0-4 degrees of Libra. Close relationships may receive a shake-down of sorts, and you may feel that it’s hard to truly rely on a partner. Lifeless or outworn relationships may become harder to bear. Some trial and error in relationships is par for the course with Uranus in this sector of your chart. People in your life may be surprised at your displays of independence. You don’t care for taking orders, and any attempts to limit you are likely to be met with great resistance or downright rebelliousness on your part. Some of you may find your current partnership limiting and you could either end it or experience tension as you explore ways to break free from restriction. Some of you could experience erratic or rebellious behavior in a close partner, and this could have you on your toes, wondering what’s next. Changes in your view of partnerships are in store in 2011. Many of you are feeling strong urges to break free from your routine and to express yourselves in a freer manner. Conditions and responsibilities that you have previously tolerated or even enjoyed are now seen as overwhelming and restrictive. Inner changes and struggles occur quite dramatically, and if your outer world and the people around you are not changing along with you (which is more than likely!), you could feel extremely restless and tied down. You are likely questioning your life as it has been, and wondering if there is a whole lot more for you “somewhere out there”. There is an expression that applies here: “Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water”. In your attempts to make changes in your life, and to rid yourself of limiting conditions, you are prone to making hasty decisions and leaving behind circumstances, jobs, or people that you might one day miss. Recognize that your urge to rebel comes from a desire for more freedom and self-expression, and find ways to express yourself and your freedom that don’t completely upset the things you have worked hard on building to date. Also recognize that as you listen to a bruised or misbehaving ego, you are prone to ignoring your deepest emotions, and as a result you may sever ties that later leave you wanting. It is especially important to be aware of this “blind spot”.
Your romantic life has been more colorful and rich for several years with Neptune making its way slowly through your solar fifth house. You are highly romantic, but also somewhat prone to self-deception–seeing what you want to see in a lover rather than what really is. Being “in love with love” is quite probable now. Love can be very romantic for you, but it can also be complicated or downright elusive! You may find yourself falling in love with someone unattainable or attached, for example; or you might attach yourself to someone who you deem needs “saving”. Use some caution in this respect. Drama in romance can be lovely, but too much of it will only leave you yearning and perhaps even heartbroken. Caution with gambling is also necessary. You are more imaginative under this influence, however, and you might take up a very artistic hobby or other creative outlet. This influence will be leaving you temporarily in 2011, and permanently in 2012.
For Libras born September 29-30 and October 1 or with an Ascendant of 5-7 degrees of Libra, you are experiencing a Pluto transit square to your Sun. You are also beginning a very long-term cycle of changes in basic domestic structure. The Pluto square can be an intense but empowering period. You may slowly uncover a new direction in your career or personal life–one that reflects more of the “true you”. Your connections to family members can also change on a fundamental level, in terms of responsibilities, support, or roles. You may experience tangles in your close personal relationships, perhaps more so with males. Watch for jealousies and manipulative behavior. Things will not go in your favor if you resort to tactics to get what you want. If you have been feeling somewhat of a victim in your family relationships or job position, for example, then this will be a year in which you feel it more acutely and feel the need to do something about it. You could have problems staying calm, cool, and collected at times. Buried resentments come to the fore and demand to be dealt with. Avoid focusing on regrets or dead-end situations, as the tendency to obsess over things that can’t or shouldn’t be changed runs very high. By the time this transit ends, you are more equipped than ever to go after exactly what it is that you want in life. Superficial areas of your life will be removed or transformed, and you are freer to express your authentic self.
Eclipses this year fall in your solar fourth and tenth houses again this year, and in your third and ninth houses (new in 2011). You are once again called upon to strike a balance between energy and attention spent on work and energy and attention spent on domestic matters. The demands of both your professional life and personal life are strong, and you might frequently feel divided. Tending to this balance is vital this year in order to re-establish a sense of inner peace and fulfillment. This is due to the solar eclipses occurring on January 4th and July 1st. With the solar and lunar eclipses occurring on June 1st, June 15th, November 25th, and December 10th, you will be learning to expand your horizons, possibly through contact with people from an entirely different background than yours, travel, or higher learning. Your personal philosophy will be changing, and eclipses give you a push towards adopting beliefs that truly work for you in the real world. You are learning about your need for self-expression through adventure. There may also be some sort of drama surrounding communication, modes of transportation, mobility, neighbors, or siblings that requires you to reorganize.
Jupiter trines Pluto in July and then again in October. This transit generally favors business, the law, and commerce. We might enjoy increased influence, faith, and insight now. The desire for more personal significance can lead us to give of ourselves or motivate us to more ambitiously pursue personal or professional goals. The ability to sway or persuade can be enhanced now. One of the most positive uses of this transit involves taking steps to better ourselves. We might solve a problem that has been in existence for some time, or capitalize upon a resource that was previously hidden or unacknowledged. Jupiter also forms favorable aspects to Neptune and Chiron from June forward. For you, communications can be enhanced. You might enjoy strong opportunities for presenting your ideas, or you could find that your influence and powers of persuasion are enhanced. You could also enjoy benefits or support, particularly for home or home improvement endeavors. Some of you might acquire property. These influences also support increases in personal income. Job offers might arrive, or there could be improved working conditions.
