New Moon in Aquarius - what's great to do?

The worst thing you can possibly say to an Aquarian is “ you look just like someone I know…” They hate to be categorised with anyone else at all as they are individuals and therefore one-offs. Don’t lump them together. So in keeping with this energy of Aquarius, it’s time to be the unique individual that you are. Think about ways in which you really are different and don’t be afraid to speak out. My Aquarian friends sometimes make me hold my breath when I am out with them in public because you can never be quite sure what they will say because they don’t care what other people think. And of course, for a Libran who wants to keep everyone happy, an off the wall Aquarian comment can ruffle people’s feathers.

The New Moon at 13 degrees Aquarius on February 2nd 2011 is a time to begin new projects and thoughts for the coming month. This is especially timely as this New Moon brings in with it the start of the Chinese New Year of the Rabbit.

What does this mean for you and how can you make the best use of its energies? Here are some tips:

start thinking in new ways in order to solve your problems
think optimistically about the future for yourself and for mankind
set up a brainstorming session with a group of people and allow your imagination to run wild
see your life from a more detached perspective and don't get too caught up in your emotions or other people's dramas
learn how to put something together or how to make something new - this applies to anything electrical, technological or scientific
force yourself to go outside your comfort zone and try new experiences
join a group or organisation with which you share common goals and interests
Do something wild – something totally out of character
Dare to be different – you might want to dress differently, speak differently, do you work in a new way
Find new friends – reach out to different people – don’t judge people by their covers
Update yourself technologically – how to market yourself, become more familiar with social networks, update your equipment, update your knowledge
Ask yourself what you can do differently to have more satisfaction in your work and in your relationships
Try to think about what your future needs will be and then draw up a game plan for catering to them
Think about ways in which you help others in your community or even globally
For me, this New Moon falls into my 8th house which will encourage me to come up with new ways of helping and advising people with their financial situation. It’s vital to come up with out of the box thinking right now because the economic situation globally is changing so quickly and new strategies and thinking are needed to maneuver around the potential pitfalls in this volatile climate. It’s a great opportunity for me to bring innovative ideas into my business or even to incorporate a new business. With it being so close to my Part of Fortune, it could mean that some of the new projects I have been working on for a while will start to come to fruition.

The New Moon in Aquarius is experimental, liberated, adventurous, and focused on "the future."

On a personal level, your friendships, social and professional network, intellect, and imagination may receive considerable attention as you search for resources, information, viewpoints, and new possibilities to try and to incorporate into the way you approach your own life. It’s a great time for brainstorming, for trying out new things, for creating new ideas of your own.

You may also feel more impatient, volatile, abrupt, explosive, or "on edge" emotionally -- depending on how well you deal with a subliminal demand to be eccentric, radical, original, "unique," and totally fresh in the way you deal with your life now. In other words, the rebel inside you is not going to be quietly contained any longer.
You may feel a need to do something totally wild -- and very unlike you -- something that breaks the restraints and blasts you out of your rut into something different and challenging, some situation where being unique and willful is an asset and encourages a more liberated life. It's a time to kick loose, take some risks, leave your conservative ways behind and to let yourself see what something revolutionary and maybe even extreme might offer in adding spice and new opportunities to your life.

Is there a 13th sign of the zodiac??

Over the last couple of weeks, I have received many concerned emails, messages, texts and calls asking me about my take on the recent publicity hype about a 13th sign of the zodiac. I’ve decided to address some of these concerns so I can assure you that whatever sign you are has not changed.

Astrology is based on the seasons and the relationships between the planets and not what sign is located behind the Sun when you were born. The zodiac signs are symbols that divide the year into 12 different and equal parts. The Cardinal signs – Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, for example, always herald a new season no matter where you are in the world. For example, Aries heralds the start of spring in the northern hemisphere and autumn in the southern hemisphere.

We associate the cardinal signs with being leaders and catalysts for change – and they reflect that in the changing of our seasons. Then the fixed signs – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius – are all in the middle of the season – when the time is more settled and routines and regularity can be established. Finally, we have the mutable signs – Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces – and these are the restless signs that need change and variety and they also represent learning – and they lead back into the Cardinal signs which indicate a whole change of season and direction. That’s why we are feeling such big changes globally and personally right now in the world because many of the major planets are moving into Cardinal signs. This means that the time for procrastination is over and it’s time for action.

Astrology was developed by the Babylonians and during that time, the constellation of Aries happened to be situated right behind the sign Aries during the spring equinox. The actual star constellations are astrologically irrelevant to modern astrology. It is vital never to equate the signs of the zodiac with fixed star constellations. Fixed star constellations are configurations of stars that can be seen in the sky. Sun signs cannot be seen in the sky as they are mathematical divisions of the annual path of the Sun in the sky of exactly 30 degree size for each of the 12 signs.

Astrologers have known about the 13th constellation for eons. In the second century BC, the renowned astrologer and astronomer Ptolemy was fully aware of precession of the equinoxes. Still, he decided to give up star constellations and to let the zodiac begin with 0 degrees Aries. He did this because he believed that the actual constellations of fixed stars were not relevant for astrology and that the sun signs should be fixed at the cardinal points of the Sun’s annual path.

Astrologers have incorporated the earth’s wobble into their understanding of the connection between the stars and life on earth. If you have ever heard about the Age of Aquarius you may also know that this follows the Age of Pisces which was preceded by the Age of Aries. The Ages go backwards to compensate for the earth’s wobble.

So I hope this explains it for those of you who are still questioning whether you are a different sign. Relax, and know that nothing has changed. If you are an Aries you have not suddenly become a Pisces – I mean, how can a full blooded Aries possibly think twice about jumping into something exciting and new?? Gemini has not slipped back into being a Taurus. My Gemini friend is married to a Taurus, and he isn’t suddenly rushing around, jumping into new projects with great enthusiasm. He is still taking his time with everything and she has days when she feels as though she is dragging a ball and chain with her….but at least he brings stability into her life.

Enjoy the sign that you are and find out the ways of making best use of its energies. Panic over!

New Moon in Capricorn January 4th 2011 and Solar Eclipse

On January 4th there is a New Moon in Capricorn and a Solar Eclipse. This gives the energy of the New Moon a turbo charge so if you can make best use of these energies, your life can move forward more quickly and more successfully.

The New Moon is a time of rebirth, a time when you can start fresh.

What does the New Moon in Capricorn mean?

It’s a good time to:
- set practical goals
- recognize your responsibilities
- prepare for the future e.g. plan for a possible disaster and have a survival strategy in place
- develop self-discipline and self-mastery
- consider how you use resources – are you wasting things? Could you be more frugal and careful?
- How can I be more effective?
- How can I master the lessons that life is trying to teach me?
- Where am I trying to take short cuts and it isn’t working for me?
- Be sensible, think things through before you take action
- Look at new ways of managing your time more effectively – Capricorn rules time

Try to be real, see what is truly going on around you. This is an opportunity for you to begin to live authentically. Capricorn is all about hard work, being responsible, purposeful, methodical and having a strategy.

Your professional accomplishments, public reputation, issues of career advancement will receive priority during this time. You might want to think about your image, how you can be respected in your field, how you can become more organized. Be cautious about what you commit to and make sure you deliver your work on time.

The New Moon signifies a start of a new personal cycle each month. It’s a great time to renew or revise your goals. Try and see the big picture of your life. Don’t set unrealistic personal goals. Don’t have too many goals at once. Try to take stock of what your abilities and interests are as well as any realistic constraints that you may face.

In my chart, the New Moon falls in my 6th house of work. I am in the process of putting together a brand new website, a new structure for my business.

This Eclipse is also in Capricorn, the sign of business, industry, organizations, and government. There will be more news about changes in corporations, banks, and financial institutions. Because this eclipse is in the earth sign of Capricorn we may hear of financial problems, recessions, drought, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other earth changes in the news.

Depending on the part of your chart that is activated we can see which part of your life will be most affected. If you are a Capricorn almost every part of you life will be affected, but all of us will feel a shift of some sort coming on.
If the eclipse falls in your 1st or 7th houses, you will be working on yourself and your relationships. If it is in the 2nd or 8th houses, you will be focused on your money, your earnings and your joint finances. If it is in the 3rd or 9th houses it could be a year of travel or educational pursuits. In the 4th or 10th houses, you will be focusing on your home and your career. If it is in the 5th or 11th houses it could centre around your children if you have any, or your business if you are self employed, and it can involve your community at large. If it is in your 6th or 12th houses it could be about your work, your health and your inner growth.

The key with this New Moon is to set yourself achievable goals and then take baby steps towards their accomplishment. Enjoy the New Moon in Capricorn!

Pisces 2011 Astrology Forecast

Uranus finally leaves your sign in March 2011 so the rollercoaster ride you have had for the last seven years may start to recede. Life starts to become more balanced and less dramatic.

Career and Money
You will want to learn much more about money than you ever have before. You will want to know how to make it and how to protect it. You should have no trouble making money, but your personal account may be subject to erratic changes until you learn how to manage your money wisely. If you choose well, you will have the opportunity to make a great deal of money this year. If you don’t choose wisely, you may sustain huge losses this year. This year has the potential to be very volatile financially but the end result will be up to you, how much you have learned and how well you deal with major financial decisions.

The big area of concern may have to do with your financial dealings with other people. Perhaps negotiations don’t move forward because you don’t understand what they are trying to do and how it affects you. If the venture has promise, it is important to sit down and discuss all your concerns and work out the details so that you are comfortable that it is equitable to everyone. You don’t want a favourable opportunity to pass you by.

If someone has been giving you money or supporting you financially, have you really been appreciating them? Conversely if you have been giving to someone else, have they been appreciating you? Or are you feeling resentful about what you are giving? Income that you may have relied on that has been steady in the past, may suddenly dry up. Your partner may lose their job. It is important that you become as independent financially as you can from someone else.

You may want to be free with your finances and you may want to start your own business and be free to set your own hours. You don’t want to find a job where you have to work within someone else’s rules. You might want to do something you have never done before. This would be a good time to expand what you do financially – look at different ways of attracting income to you – try to find several different streams of income. Don’t be extravagant – don’t spend without thinking first – with Uranus there – you may have sudden windfalls and sudden losses. Don’t overdo it.

In your work and career after March conditions will improve for you. Your ability to communicate pleasantly with others will work in your favour. People may give you business because of your charm and you may receive encouragement and compliments from others who appreciate your helpfulness.

Friendships that have been shallow may just disappear because you will be looking for more intensity and depth in your relationships. Your goals and dreams will change dramatically – what was important is no longer important to you. One very important friendship may come into your life and change your life utterly during this period. Watch out for very powerful people coming into your life that want to control you.

Communications are very well aspected for the second part of the year, as well as travel and meeting people from foreign places.

If you are looking for a relationship, Venus is in Pisces, your sign, from the end of March and during April. This will be a very favourable time to meet someone and have a relationship with them. Mars is in your sign from the end of February until the beginning of April which will inject a boost of energy into you and will be a time when you can accomplish a great deal and you will be able to be more assertive.

Although you are a romantic by nature, your focus in 2011 is likely to be more upon friendships rather than a partnership. If you are already in a committed relationship, it should settle down nicely this year. If you are not, don’t be in too much of a hurry to get into a committed relationship. The longer you spend cultivating a friendship, the more likely the relationship will last in the future.

There are no major health issues for Pisces after March. Prior to the end of March, however, there may be lingering worries that are related to the previous seven years. This can result in nervousness and anxiety, so try to maintain your inner peace and calm. Whenever you feel your heart racing, sit down, breathe, have a hot drink, lie down and meditate, or listen to some soothing music. Your health should be much better than it has been for some time.

Aquarius 2011 Astrology Forecast

This year promises gains and advances in all life areas. You will start to become much more realistic and this will serve you well in your work and your relationships.

Career and Money

You will have some good ideas and other will respond favourably to them. This may be a year when computers, software programmes, or training in anything connected with the media or technology, will advance your cause. Be willing to learn and be trained in new technologies. If you work for yourself, your products and services will be in greater demand. You are overall on the right path right now, but don’t miss an opportunity to request what you need from others to help you to move onto the next level.

This is a great year to undertake a serious course of study. You may have to travel for business rather than pleasure. It’s a great time to learn something new. Anything connected with science, technology and metaphysical subjects is well aspected. It’s a good time to think about earning your living through these areas. Don’t be too optimistic and try to be realistic with your plans so that you don’t feel disappointed if things don’t move as quickly as you expected. You will have a great boost in your mental abilities and the ideas you are coming up with have the potential to make you a great deal of money.

During the second part of the year, there may be a tendency to overstep your boundaries and reach into areas that you are not quite ready for. Use good judgment. Don’t overestimate how much you can do and don’t take on more than you can handle.

There will be instability with your finances this year. No sooner do you think you have a handle on your monies and then everything will change again and slip away from you. What you need to do is to stay flexible, be open to new ideas and new opportunities. Having Jupiter in your house of finance briefly will bring you some good fortune and Neptune will force you to have faith that things will work out in the end. You’ll have some amazing off the wall ideas that have the potential to be a great success.

This is not a year for gambling or speculative activities. Pay down your debts if you have any and don’t take out any new ones.

You continue to be very popular and magnetic with others. You place a high value on your friendships which is one area that will bring you a great deal of joy this year. There will be an abundance of fun activities to share with others, from travel, to parties, to dancing, to group activities and community endeavours. Everyone will have a good time when they are with you as you do with them.

You are more open to other people’s opinions and offers of help than usual. This can result in them helping you to find work, new clients or an audience that is receptive to your ideas.

Intimate and romantic relationships are possible this year if you want them. But try to have a friendship with someone before you get involved emotionally. You may be attracted to and older and more mature person this year, or someone you feel you can really build something with. Although you do like adventure, this would be the year for settling down into a more committed relationship.

If there have been any disagreements or misunderstandings in your family or with your loved ones, after June this will be a great time to bring about peace and harmony.

Especially good times for love and romance are during March and again from mid December into the beginning of 2012. From mid-January until the end of February, Mars is in your sign which will give you a turbo charge in your energy levels and a great time to pursue whatever you want successfully.

The only issue this year will be your ability to find balance in your stress levels and not to push yourself too hard. Otherwise your energy level should be very good and if you are on a good diet, you exercise regularly and you have positive thoughts about the future, then your health should thrive this year. Try to find time to meditate and to relax and chill out.

Capricorn 2011 Astrology Forecast

This is a big year for you which can feel incredibly empowering or it can feel like a threat to your very survival in terms of business, relationships and health. There may be sudden changes of plans and you will need to be patient and adaptable to changing circumstances.

Pluto is in your sign and many of you have been experiencing a breakdown of certain areas in your life since Pluto went into Capricorn in November 2008. This is giving you an opportunity to begin again. Maybe it’s been a letting go, maybe you have had a loss. You now need to find the inner strength as to how you will pick yourself up and move forward. What can be very helpful during these times is to study something like astrology or any of the metaphysical subjects to help give you a better understanding of the deeper levels inside you. Pluto will force you to renew yourself.

Career and Money
This year has great potential in business for you with many high points, but at the same time, the risk of sudden reversals. This will be a year when you may feel compelled to make major changes in your life. Consider each change seriously before taking action, because once you have taken action it may be very hard to undo. If after due consideration you think that the proposed change will realistically improve your life, then go for it. If not, then let it go.

It is a good time to get rid of clutter and reducing your responsibilities. If you are an employer, you may cut back your staff this year. You will have the urge to simplify your life, especially your work.

Unexpected events are likely to arise this year. Expect your plans to be disrupted but try not to panic. You will need to adjust quickly. Make sure you have all your files constantly backed up as problems with technology and computers are a possibility. You could lose a great deal of information that is vital to your work under these aspects.

Expect changes in your clients or the buyers of your products or services if you are in business for yourself. Many new clients will come in, and some older ones will drop away. There is an overhaul taking place in your work area and not all of it is within your control. However, the changes that you may be forced to make will turn out to be a blessing in the end.

Don’t lend money and don’t borrow money this year. If you lend money, you may never get it back without some difficulty or tension. You may lose the relationship you had with that person. If you borrow money, you may find that its use did not generate the returns you anticipated and it will create a great deal of stress for you to repay it.

This would not be a year to get involved with any kind of gambling or anything speculative particularly if you are worried about losing money. If you can just go along with it and say hey, I’m just having a little flutter and I don’t care if I win or lose – that’s a different matter, but if you really care if you are going to lose money, then you probably will.

You may have to take on more responsibilities at work and you may be more productive at work. This could be a year of fruition in your work for those who have been working hard towards a particular goal. If you want to be a leader in your field this is the year that your leadership role could be taken seriously.

After May or June, your income does look positive this year.

You are still in the process of reinventing yourself and your future. And in that process you are in a stage of your life where separations and divorces are more likely to unfold rather than marriages and new partnerships. The question to ask yourself is whether you feel you are ready for a deep relationship at this time. Or is there some self development you need to go through before you are ready to take on a committed relationship?

You won’t be lacking in companionship if you want it. Others do find you very attractive and charming right now. Perhaps because you are more inaccessible than usual, the demand for your presence is greater than usual. You have a mysterious aura about you this year which will only add to your magnetism.

From June onwards, if you are looking for a new romance or love, someone could come into your life unexpectedly. This can indicate a marriage or having children. Just make sure you feel emotionally ready for this kind of commitment before you take it on. As a Capricorn you tend to take everything very seriously and you love responsibility, but this would not be the best year to make that deep commitment. Try to keep it light and friendly, just not too deep and intense.

There will probably be some disruption in your home life. Some of you will be moving, some of you are going to break ties with your family. There may be upsets and you may lose contact with people but you are ready for a break. If you stop trying to find security so much you won’t find these transits too hard. There could be several moves, but certainly a feeling of being unsettled.

You have Venus in your sign twice this year and the optimum times for relationships will be in February and again at the end of November and into December. These are good windows of opportunity for you to meet someone new, to charm people and to have others accept and love you. There may be more than one person who is interested in a close companionship with you.

As a rule you do not do well when things happen suddenly and are outside of your control. This creates tension and stress and a tendency to worry. For this year pay attention to anything concerning your heart, back, teeth and skin. You will have to be careful you don’t become exhausted and overtired caused by a lack of balance in your life. A good diet, regular exercise and meditation will all help your health and well being immensely.

Sagittarius 2011 Astrology Forecast

There will be many opportunities for success for you this year.

Career and Money
You will have many opportunities for growth in your work and in your finances. You may be offered a new position, or the opportunity to develop a new product or service that could be extremely successful. This could be a major break for you and lead to a period of rapid professional growth. However, you may need to relocate to access all these opportunities. If you are a writer, this is a great year to get published. If you are in sales, this should be very good year. Your charm and friendliness will work a treat on people and will open up doors for you.

This is a great time to learn as many new skills as you can, especially in anything connected with technology. You may find yourself teaching and training others. You will have the ability to draw money to you this year, but beware of your tendency to be overconfident and take on too many risks. That could be your downfall. Be aware of your limits and act within them. The danger is that once you start feeling really good and you don’t want any limits imposed on your activities.

You will need to pay attention to how you communicate with people. There is the possibility of misunderstandings and confusion. You must be especially careful with anything connected with negotiations. You might get misrepresented and misunderstood. If there is anything really important, make sure you get a couple of legal opinions before you sign contracts. With this aspect you have to be very careful. Even with the best will in the world there could be confusion in communications, especially with contracts and agreements.

You may want to go it alone this year rather than working in a team or with others. For those of you who are used to doing things alone, it will feel very comfortable. For those of you who are not used to doing things alone, you may find that others are not cooperating very well and you may feel as though they are getting in your way. You will want to do things your way and not be told what to do. If you take the chance and rely on your own initiatives they will pay off handsomely this year.

For those of you who have been working towards your goals and your wishes this could well be the year when much of it comes to fruition for you. It can be a wonderful time. For those of you who haven’t been working on your dreams and wishes you may find that things are dropping away now for you to begin again and to start fresh. It may feel a bit disappointing but you will be starting with another blank sheet of paper and you can fill it up again with new and exciting dreams.


Your charisma is very strong this year and you will attract many interesting people into your circle. People will like you and you may find yourself doing all kinds of new activities with others. You may travel in a group to exciting new places or you may travel alone and meet new people.

Your life looks exciting in terms of love and romance. In love, others will be drawn to you and this will increase your self confidence. In friendships, a wealth of new and exciting experiences awaits you. It’s a year to focus on having fun and pleasurable times with others.

Between January and March there could be completions of friendships or even an intimate relationship. It may be time for someone to exit your life. As long as you have learned the necessary lessons, you will be able to let the relationship go and allow something new and more satisfying to come in. You may get into a relationship very quickly, you may marry quickly, you may even have an affair. Your relationships will be very stimulating and you may feel butterflies in your stomach with all the excitement.

This year has great potential for those of you who are looking for a committed relationship, but try not to rush into it. An especially good time for love and romance will be in November when Venus is in your sign.

There will be a focus this year on your home and family. For those of you who are thinking of moving this year, you will most likely make that move. You might want to move far away as you will not want restrictions around you any more. For those of you who are living at home, you will want to break out. For those of you who are living with someone else, you may find you need more freedom and more space. This feeling will be pretty strong until March. Old ties with the past may be broken, and you may feel a temporary sense of being rootless.

You may feel restless and stressed. You need to relax, slow down, breathe and calm yourself. Otherwise you could experience unexpected physical problems. For example, you might feel as though your heart is racing. The more you can get outdoors, the better you will feel. You might even feel like doing some challenging physical activities. You should not be lacking in energy this year. Just make sure you don’t push yourself too hard and that you listen to your body when it wants to rest.

Scorpio 2011 Astrology Forecast

For many of you this will be a year of completions and endings. You may need to withdraw and analyse your behaviour and the results you have been getting in your life. Try to look forward and not so much back. Discard the things that really need to go.

Career and Money

This year will be erratic in regard to your work and finances. There will be opportunities to advance and to make more money, but it may not be clear that you can or want to do this. On the one hand, you seem to be gaining power and influence in what you are doing. If you have been working assiduously where you are, you will have made some progress. You may not want to leave and deal with unknown factors that could change your life right now.

Yet there will be opportunities for change and they may involve more money. The cost will be that you may have to give up that which you have just put carefully together. It might be a tough decision and there may be other people who are relying on your stability right now and you may have obligations to fulfill. You don’t want to risk losing that even if it means giving up a chance for earning more money.

For those of you who would like to be self employed this is a wonderful time for starting a new business. If you are already self employed this is a great year for expanding your business. It will not be a time to speculate in risky deals, but it is a time to promote your ideas, to network what you do. Anything with a creative or artistic bent has a great chance of success. Try to focus on doing what you enjoy and making a living from it. Focus on anything that gives you pleasure and that you feel passionate about. This would be the year to create a business from your passion.

You will need more freedom in your work area – feeling as though you need to break out – you will be saying that you cannot stand authority figures, you cannot stand being told what to do – you will be craving for a break from it all – to do things your own way. Be careful that you don’t lead to your own demise where you get thrown out of your job. Many of you will find that work will be erratic and will come and go. You will have a job for a while and then it may disappear. Be prepared to do temp work, part time work or be prepared to develop your own business.

It would also be a good year to do anything in your community – volunteering, helping, being of service. This could lead to paid work as long as you don’t do it with that intention at the outset.

If you are married or are in a stable relationship, for the most part things should go smoothly. If you are not in a committed relationship and you would like to be, you may receive a serious proposal this year. It could work well as long as you don’t ascribe qualities to that person that they don’t really have. You have a tendency to put on rose coloured glasses when you are “in love” and you don’t see the person as they really are. Only later on do you come back to earth with a bump. See the person for who they are and don’t try to change them.

For much of this year there will be a great focus on your surroundings and some of you may have issues with siblings or with family in general. You may want to move away from where you are living. You may find a short, seemingly trivial trip has a life changing effect on you. This will be a wonderful time for doing deep research, anything you want to develop in secret – a product, a patent – a drug – this would be a great year to do it. You will be able to get information that you wouldn’t normally have access to.

You may feel unsettled in your home area. And you may be feeling as though you are sacrificing a lot for the people around you – your family, your parents, your children. There can be some difficult issues with parents – misunderstandings and confusion with older people. Try to be patient and listen very carefully to what is being said.

The best time for romance and marriage is towards the middle of October to the beginning of November when Venus is in your sign. But with Jupiter, the planet of good fortune influencing your relationships for the first six months of the year, there is a strong possibility of a relationship blossoming into something more, or a new relationship coming in, or a big learning going on in an existing relationship. All your relationships will have great learning potential this year – your personal and professional ones. It would be a good year to find a team of professionals to work with or for you.

The main thing this year is not to overdo anything. Don’t push yourself too hard. If your body is asking for a break, stop and take a breather. Don’t doggedly persist until you are absolutely exhausted and vulnerable to any infection that might be going around. Overall your health should be good but it is up to you to maintain your level of health. You might want to try a cleanse or a fast. Don’t overindulge in sweet and fatty foods. There will be a tendency for weight gain this year.

Libra 2011 Astrology Forecast

You are still under the influence of the Cardinal Climax and this is likely to be a period of great transformation in your life when you leave one path and start another direction in your life. Focus on looking at yourself and reinventing who you are. This can be an exciting year if you use it well as it can help you to create new and solid foundations for many years to come.

Career and Money

Your career may be at a crossroads with you wondering which path to take from here. Many of you are not happy where you are and it is important that you see this as an opportunity to reinvent your career. You will need to invest a great deal of time and energy to build the kind of work life you really want. Your greatest skill is in networking and in connecting with others. If they give you the chance, you will find a way in. You may find that people are reluctant to make commitments to you right now, especially in business, perhaps because they are worried about their own future. It is not necessarily a reflection on your or your talents as it has more to do with the state of the economy and how it affects their business.

Your work life will have many ups and downs this year and you will be forced to think up new ways in which you can bring life into your work. As an Air sign, you are full of good ideas, the key is in being able to follow them up and bring them into reality. If you are prepared to hustle a bit and to be more assertive, there will be some good opportunities in your work area, but they may be short lived. Be open to a flash of intuition – “ooh yes I will make that phone call, ooh that looks like something interesting I saw on the internet – maybe I will follow up and find out more.” Even if it is something fleeting – don’t just let it go – do something about it and see where it takes you.

Libra likes everything to be pleasant with no conflicts. But with Saturn in your sign you may have to face more unpleasantness, arguments and disagreements than ever before in order to bring a balance back into your life. It may feel disheartening at first, but if you see it as an opportunity to stick up for yourself, you will feel empowered in the long run. Saturn likes to streamline things and doesn’t like anything that is superfluous. What is really past its sell by date in your life will need to go so that you can put in new structures to move forward. One door closes and another door opens. You have to shut the door firmly before the new door can open. It might be a business relationship that needs to end that is long overdue. It might be a partnership that you haven’t wanted to end, or maybe you had big dreams about – but the writing is on the wall and maybe it’s time to accept it and move on.

It would be wise to be economical this year, but this should not be too difficult, because in spite of your expensive tastes, you are basically a frugal person when it comes to spending your own money. You can spend other people’s money without any difficulty, and in doing so, you find things of great value for them. This is one of your talents. You are a good shopper and negotiator. But you may find that because of the economy people have less money to spend, so don’t be discouraged if they put you on an even tighter budget. You need to adjust to this new reality or else you will spend a great deal of time and energy worrying about your finances and career.

The first six months of the year will be the best time for finding employment or receiving offers for work. This is not the year for any speculative dealings. Play it safe and conservative and ensure that you have adequate insurance for your possessions.


Transformation and endings will be the key words describing many of your relationships this year. You may find that you cut loose some friends and others may cut you loose. This is a year when some relationships you value will end, but it is also a year when some relationships can get closer and deeper than ever.

For many of you there will be considerable changes regarding your home situation and some of you may move home or even to another country. People from your past come back into your life – either physically or you may have memories that are triggered about people in your past and you may get a deeper understanding as to what was going on at that time. Things that may have eluded you in the past may come to light with this transit. There are certainly going to be some powerful interactions with anyone you consider to be your family. There may be some power struggles – huge differences of opinion or perception and you may find yourself digging your heels in and insisting on what you want instead of being all sweetness and light.

For those of you looking for a new relationship – this could be your lucky year! A particularly beneficial time is when Venus is in your sign from 14th September to 9th October. If you are single you may receive a marriage proposal this year. You will have no problem in attracting others, but you may have some difficulty in seeing the situation clearly. Ask yourself questions like “what do we have in common?” “Do we share the same kinds of values and beliefs?” “Are our lifestyles and temperaments compatible?” If the answers are truthfully positive, then go for it. If you are not sure, then wait before you make a serious commitment.

You will have the opportunity to make some lovely friends this year. People who are exciting and interesting will come into your life. There may be lessons to be learned – who you give to, how generous you are – are you being too generous? Are you taking too much? Try not to go over the top, and find the balance of give and take in all your relationships.

You will need to be more careful and more disciplined about your diet and exercise then ever before. Many of your ailments are caused by worry. You have a tendency to worry about the future, your relationships and your health. All that worry drains your energy and vitality. Stop worrying about whether people like you or not. There is precious little you can do to make them like you and the sooner you let that go, the better you will feel. You may need to take special care of your teeth and your skin.

Virgo 2011 Astrology Forecast

This year is a huge focus on your finances, your values, what is important to you, your relationships, your work and your ideals. You will have the opportunity to build something new in your life.

Career and Money

If you are in business for yourself, sales and clients are likely to increase this year. If you work for a company, you may be rewarded for streamlining processes and helping the company become more efficient. This should be the start of a more stable period for you at least in terms of what you do and the direction you are going in. As long as you stay focused, you will likely succeed in all you do as you are also intelligent and bright. The more organised you are, the more smoothly everything will run and you will be able to accomplish a great deal in a short space of time.

You will be making money this year, but you do need to ensure that you pay off any debts you may have accumulated. Be frugal if necessary and squirrel away any money you make and don’t spend needlessly. You will have enough to cover your needs, just not enough for all of your wants. Focus on being grateful for what you do have in your life and you will find that your income and prosperity will grow. Try not to keep score, as Virgos are apt to do, and this too will free up the flow of riches to you. The issue is that you often get insecure about money and your worrying about it only makes it worse and can drive the money away from you. So the best way of dealing with this is to work out what you need, find a way to cover those expenses to the best of your ability, pay down any debts you have and then forget about it. Then it will not bother you too much. Look at your values and make sure you are living by those values and not according to another set of values that you may have learned from your parents or peers.

There could be deception in your work area with people who are telling you things that are not true. You may need to watch your back at work. Stay alert and be careful who you trust and who you speak to. Cover yourself by confirming all verbal conversations in writing. You will then have a paper trail should you need it in the future.

If you are in a close relationship, your partner’s finances many be erratic this year. You could receive a surprise inheritance. Try to keep your finances separate from anyone else if you possibly can. The more financially independent you are the better. Look at your finances in greater detail: Are you with the right bank? Are you spending more than you earn? Do you have too many debts that you need to make a plan to pay off? If you need to get advice, make sure you get at least three different opinions before you commit your money to anything.

For those of you who are in a relationship it may be intense and difficult. If you get into a new relationship, you may become obsessed with this person. If you have children you may find that the relationship with them intensifies. You may get involved with someone who you really know instinctively is not good for you but you have a fascination for them and you cannot get out from under their spell. Watch out for the dynamic of the relationship from the beginning so that if you need to get away from their energy, you able to do so. Be aware that you may be drawn to someone who is almost mesmerizing you against your will. There may be some heavy moments where you will have to assert what is important to you and not allow yourself to be manipulated by other people. If you are in a relationship it could come under difficulties and intensities, but if it survives this transit then it will be stronger than ever and it will probably survive forever.

In one way or another, some of your relationships will be disrupted this year. There could be a new relationship that comes into your life that seems really exciting, but it could disappear just as quickly. There will be more new people coming into your life but you will have to be discerning and ensure that the people you let close to you either emotionally or in business are trustworthy. Don’t allow yourself to be taken in. Some of you get involved in a relationship too quickly and only afterwards use your discernment skills. Try to use your discernment skills up front and then you will not run into trouble.

From August 22nd to September 15th Venus is your sign and it is a great time to attract love into your life. You will be able to get things done more easily as people are more drawn to you and will want to please you. With Mars in Virgo from November 11th to the end of year you will feel more confident and more assertive at that time with a great boost of energy. This will be a good time to proactively go out and introduce yourself to new people.

Over the last several years there has been uncertainty with your work and your future has been a source of great worry to you. But as these issues get settled and your direction becomes more stable, your health will improve greatly. You would benefit from anything that helps you to relax and soothes your nervous system. E.g. massages, hot cups of tea, a sauna, a spa, a walk in the country. Even though things are improving for you, there is still a tendency to worry and for your nervous system to be on edge. If you learn how to relax on a consistent basis, you will notice a huge difference in the quality of your sleep and in your energy levels.

Leo 2011 Astrology Forecast

Things should be looking up for you this year as you have many favourable aspects coming up.

Career and Money

If ever there was a time to study something new, a really deep serious course of study that maybe you have been thinking of doing, or maybe you have been putting off doing, or maybe you are already doing – this is a wonderful time to do it. This is a time when you will have the concentration to complete it. You will want to understand more, you want to add to your skills and that in turn will help with your financial situation. Many of you have been having issues with your finances – it’s been serious. Make a clear conscious decision that you are going to extend your skills in some way or another. It could mean running your own course, it could mean going back to school. It’s a good time to focus your mind into something structured and can be useful for you moving forward in your life. Don’t be afraid to sign up for a course of serious study as it will pay off in the long run.

For some of you it might be your partner that cannot find paid work and it is putting pressure on you to support them. For others there may be an inheritance but it is eluding you. There could be a lot of money going out that you had not anticipated. Try to live as economically as you can and not get into partnership situations if you can as there is a likelihood for loss. You may even lose your identity. Try to keep things clean and clear – get legal advice if you get involved in anything financial.

From June onwards is a great time to look at overseas opportunities. It would be an optimal time to publish a book, to write a book, to compose music, to write a play, to teach a course you have developed and to market it globally.

You will be experiencing great changes in how you work and the way in which you work. You will have to find ways of sticking up for yourself in your work area. Whether you work for yourself or for someone else, you will have to be more assertive and not allow yourself to be pushed about. Many of you may be going through a difficult process in your work area – and maybe it means that you decide to be self employed and take control of your work environment. Do you need to make changes in the way in which you work? Do you need a quieter environment to work in? Do you need to work from home? All these issues will be coming up for you to think about in your work area.

This year you could start reinventing yourself in your career. It may involve something connected with technology, astrology, media or else it is something that puts your face out in front of people and promotes a service or product that excites you. You may come up with some ingenious marketing ideas for yourself or someone else. All of this has the potential to lead up to an increased income and more sales.

This is a year when your organisational and planning skills can really benefit you. You always wanted to do something big, and now is your chance to do it. It can be something new, something big and something that you are passionate about.

Be careful about the people who work around you or for you. Make sure they are representing you properly. They may think they have the power rather than you, and a conflict may occur where you have to ask them to leave. Or if you are doing a service for someone, make sure they are not covering something up and that they are credible. Check them out thoroughly before you get involved with them. As long as you ensure that the people and the conditions you need to support your new career are in place, you can achieve great success.


This is an area of great possible success this year. You have natural charm and you radiate confidence. People will be attracted to you and you will be very popular. This can be a very enjoyable time of your life as it is positive for all types of social encounters. If you want to expand your circle of friends, you will be able to do it. If you want love and romance, it will be there for you. If you want a committed partnership, that too can be there for you this year. If you are single, you may choose to get married or engaged now.

Some of you may be making big sacrifices for a partner, a relationship, a business partner – where you are giving a lot and maybe not getting a whole lot in return. You are not seeing some of your relationships clearly enough. Try to step back a little. If someone is draining your energy, maybe it’s time not to give so much.

From late July until Mid August Venus is in your sign which means it will be a great time to have love come into your life. From September 19th to November 10th Mars is in your sign which will give you a boost of energy and will be a great time for you to be proactive in getting what you want.

You should feel good this year. As you begin to enjoy life more, you will feel younger and more energised. Your feeling of good health will grow as you complete the goals you set out to do knowing you did a good job. The overall picture for your health is good but you do need to be aware of any warning signs that your body gives you. For example, if you are having headaches, don’t just take a pill, try to find out what is causing those headaches and work on the cause rather then the symptom.
