This year is going to be a mixed bag with a big focus on your work, your life purpose and how to bring more meaning into your life. Many of you will be completing up projects that you have started several years ago.
Career and Money
For those of you who work for yourselves already, or who have been thinking of working for yourselves this is a good year to put new structures in so that you can make the dreams you have for your own business a practical reality. This would not be a good year for speculation, to be trading on the stock markets and going in and out of deals. It is good year, however, for establishing your own business. If you own a business you are likely to experience growth this year. Friends may bring you business through referrals. This will lead to new clients or opportunities for increased sales. If you are a writer, this will be a particularly good year.
You will be learning many lessons about finances. You may decide that you want a simpler life and you don’t want to be driven to achieve more and more. You may decide to be grateful for what you have and from that gratitude, more resources will be made available to you. Be careful about any financial partnerships that you are involved with – this would not be a time to allow your partner to go into debt. In fact, it is not a good time for anything connected with debt. You may find yourself struggling with finances and you may need to choose between your needs and your wants. Maybe you need to sell something, maybe you need to move on.
New ideas and new offers will be coming your way. You will have to watch out that you don’t scatter your energies and then miss out on the really good opportunities. Your basic nature wants to jump on all the new offers, but you may need to finish up other projects before you are able to start on the new ones. You can do both as you are good at multi-tasking, but you will have to be very disciplined.
The first three months of the year might be quite chaotic. You may experience sudden events that take you off course. Or you may be feeling so restless that you cannot think straight. At this time you may be prone to having poor judgment in business, so take your time before getting into something. It’s much easier to get into something and say yes than it is to get out of something later on.
The big focus this year will be on your career and there will be ups and downs. For some of you it may mean temporary work, contract work, not being able to find a permanent position - even though you are looking for it. However there will be opportunities coming in. Make sure that you are not too busy to hear the opportunities as they come in – when someone is knocking at your door. These new opportunities will come from the most unlikely places and you might miss them. The window of opportunity is likely to be brief, so you will need to be on the ball and be quick. Try to be flexible and allow yourself to go with the flow.
You might meet someone in your work area – someone who may be very helpful to you, who may be a mentor to you, who may push you into your potential. Be ready for that too.
If you are in a committed relationship, it may go more smoothly, or at least without so much of the drama that you’ve experienced in the last few years. If you are not in a committed relationship, you may receive a serious proposal of marriage this year and the prospect of you settling down and having a family. You may end up with someone much older than you or with someone who has a great deal of experience. Be careful that you don’t end up with someone who is very controlling or dominating.
If you have children they may become more of a responsibility to you this year. However, you may also feel very proud of them. They may be completing important stages of their life – e.g. marriage, children, graduation etc., and you can be a big part of that.
From March 2011 you may find that your friends change. You need more excitement in your friendships and maybe some of them have got a bit stale and boring. You need to make an effort to bring new friends into your life. It might be time to join a new organisation or a new club, and to do something that you haven’t done before. It’s about expanding your horizons and meeting new people in different areas that you would never have met before. You will love the opportunity to meet all these new people. This will be the year to do it.
After June, maybe someone who has been in your life for many years and who has been supporting you will go out of your life. It will be a signal showing you that it’s time to let go and you can stand on your own two feet.
June and July are the peak months for relationships when Venus and Mars are in Gemini. This will be a great time for love, a new relationship, meeting someone new with whom you have a chemistry. It will be an especially good time for making new friends, networking and meeting up with existing friends for a coffee and a chat.
You will need to learn how to switch off and wind down as your nervous energy will be high. Remember to have a soothing hot drink, a massage, to meditate and to take time out. There will be so much going on this year that your nervous system could be affected, so try to catch things before they escalate into something more serious. A good diet – not a crazy one – and an exercise programme will result in plenty of energy for you to complete the large projects you will undertake this year.
