The first half of 2011 will probably be more challenging than the second half because the effects of the Cardinal Climax are still very much in play in your life. Everything in your life that is not working for you will be shaken up and you will get the chance to start anew.
Career and Money
You like stability in your career and your finances, but 2011 is not going to give you that luxury. You will not be lacking in opportunities, but you may find that the opportunities are not what you had hoped they would be. You need to learn how to get reality in line with your expectations. Overestimating your situation may plague you in the first half of the year. You want to be confident and optimistic, but try not to exaggerate anything.
This is a time where you may find it necessary to start over in your career direction. Your lifestyle may change which could be very positive. Your challenge is to find work that matches your talents and interests. Keep in mind that you are in the process of starting a new stage in your life and it may take a couple of years to sort it out. You may make a career decision that you have a few doubts about, but it may turn out to be a very good career choice. If at first you don’t like it, then try something else. You may have to do this a few times, but eventually you will get where you want to be. Try not to allow yourself to get too frustrated. Keep on persevering. Enjoy the journey rather than the destination.
With Saturn in your 4th house all year, this is going to mean you are feeling insecure about money and finance. Many of you may be feeling the pinch especially if you have had to move or downsize. You may have to take on more responsibilities with your family. Someone may need more of your help, your time, your energy or your money. It could be your children, your spouse, your partner or your extended family.
Some of you may find you lose your job, or you suddenly find a different job or that you move into a completely different field. Be ready to retrain in a different area. Be prepared for work to be erratic. Things will come and go. It will not be predictable. There could be some good opportunities but you will have to be quick off the mark. Don’t procrastinate too much.
Money will be erratic this year, at least for the first half of the year. There may be times when it comes in large amounts, but then there will be times when there may be very little. Make sure you are frugal and careful with your money when you have it. Don’t assume that money will be there for all your wants. As long as your needs are taken care of, that should be your priority. After the middle of June, your income may be more stable, and you will be able to make some bigger purchases if you want. Your friends and relatives may be helpful to you.
If you are in a relationship you may find that your mate has issues with money. You may find that you have to look after them financially. This would not be a good time to get into a business partnership. Take care that any assets you have are protected properly. If you are in a joint venture, make sure you have all your contracts and agreements clearly delineated and organised.
It could be a time for a move or a relocation of your job. This will be a jolt to your personal security but also holds the seeds of new beginnings and opportunities. Don’t be averse to moving out of state or to another country if the job or business opportunities look greater than where you are.
This is an area which will undergo huge changes this year. You want other people to be in tune with your needs, but you need to ensure you are in tune with their needs as well. For some of you it will mean some endings in your relationships. For others it will mean a total reevaluation of how you are in a relationship. Are you being too giving in a relationship? Is there a relationship in your life that really needs to end now? Are you around manipulative, controlling people? Does the form of a relationship need to change? Maybe you are in a friendship that could develop into an intimate relationship? Maybe you are in a relationship that should become a friendship? Something drastically will change in the way you view your relationships.
Some of you may find that you are alone. You may need that space in order to reevaluate your relationships. You may find that people come in and out of your life. You may have a heart wrenching relationship that goes to the soul level. You may need help with it as it may become an obsessive relationship where you cannot get this person out of your head. On the other hand it could be such a deep relationship in which you feel as though you are dying and being reborn.
If you have learned how to stick up for yourself and to be really strong in your relationships then you will feel greatly empowered and you will draw a completely different kind of person into your life. Someone who will be more nourishing and who will encourage you to be the best you can be.
If you are unattached, you may meet many interesting and attractive people this year. You will have charisma and magnetism, but the people you draw to you may only stay in your life for a short while. Make sure you don’t open your heart up too quickly, try to go slowly and see if this person can fulfill your emotional needs before you open up.
If you are already in a committed partnership and want to stay in the relationship, make sure you pay attention to your partner’s emotional needs and balance it with your own needs. Communication will be key – ensure that you talk as much as possible.
Your friends, pets and children will be a source of great comfort to you. They will be the ones to listen to you and give you sound advice about your love life.
From July to September when Venus and Mars are in your sign will be a great time for you to meet someone new for either a romance or a friendship. If you are looking for a relationship make sure you get out and about socially during these months.
With so much instability in your life you will need to learn how to deal with stress. You need to make time to relax and to have peaceful moments alone. Try to create a regular exercise routine – even if it’s only a regular walk every day, it will help with your stress levels. When you become over-emotional you put stress on your heart and on your digestive system. Avoid excesses in food and drink and take time out to meditate. There is no reason why you should have any physical issues this year. Keep in mind that it is your mental and emotional state which will dictate your level of health this year.
