Just when you thought that life couldn’t possibly throw any more twists or turns along life’s once tedious path, along comes the unpredictable but exhilarating energy of 2011 (operative word being “exhilarating”). Partnerships continue to confront you with your deepest needs and fears but your career shows incredible promise and renewal. You receive the lucky touch of Jupiter from January to June. Expect major expansion and recognition on all fronts.
Promotions, opportunities to expand your social world and work-related travel are all potential gifts when the wheel of fortune spins in your favor for the first half of the year. The second half of 2011 brings a spectacular slew of new friends, alliances and networking opportunities when Jupiter moves into your house of dreams, goals and community. Venus showers you with extra doses of love and cash for the month of July, just in time for your birthday. And Mars brings the action, energy and work in August and early September.
Get ready to jet set this spring and/or summer when the planet of glamour enters your long-distance travel sector this April. Your homebody instincts give way to the lure of travel and adventure in 2011. Fall and winter bring the return of dreamy Neptune to your sector of transformation for one last jaunt between August and 2012.
Revolutionary new project ideas that began percolating in early 2010 are ready to launch by spring. With Jupiter encouraging you to think in terms of more, bigger and better coupled with Uranus egging you on to experiment, you’re guaranteed to break out of the corporate box and take your career to the next level. Be prepared to leave the comfort of a solid paycheck to pursue something infinitely more fulfilling and ultimately more rewarding (and yes, even on a financial level if you play your cards right, Cancer.) Your busiest work months are between August and September. And the most creative and sweet work moments take place during December when Venus enters your work sector.
More autonomy, greater recognition, and fabulous travel become integral constituents of your fab new professional world. Expect powerful shifts to occur between March (Jupiter joins Uranus in your career sector) and May (six planets line up at the top of your horoscope.) Dare yourself to take your greatest career risks during late January until the end of May, which is when Jupiter peaks at the top of your horoscope. When you’re sitting pretty in 2011 doing what you want and how you want -- you’ll be oh-so-glad you did.
When lucky Jupiter enters your networking sector in June, your life becomes radically more festive. This run of dazzling little social fetes is anything but frivolous. The more your mix and mingle, the more key contacts you’re liable to make. In the second half of 2011, it’s all about who you know, so come out of your shell and take time to get to know who you’re auspiciously rubbing shoulders with. Support seems to flow effortlessly, so don’t be afraid to get by with a little help from your friends.
The South Node quickly finishes the run in Cancer by early January, calling up choices you’ve made in the past and asking you to learn from any mistakes that weakened your personal integrity. You’re learning to trust your gut when it comes to love and relationships rather than seeing what you want to see. You’re also getting in touch with just how sensitive you are and how important it is not take on other people’s emotional baggage.
The planetary heavyweight, Saturn ruling karmic lessons continues his transit through the relationship sign of Libra (consequently at the very core of your horoscope.) Lessons that began in 2010 in the love department get put to the test and require you to go even deeper. You’re getting the courage to cut the umbilical cords that have only served to choke your growth. Comfort and security are one thing, but if you’re wasting your time, you’re wasting your time, Cancer. You can no longer get away with rationalizing your feelings. The truth is in your belly.
Pluto, the lord of the underworld and deep, one-way transformation continues to reveal any repressed issues and power struggles in significant relationships. Consider that you’re only in the early stages of a heavy long-term process of self-discovery and shedding skin. Letting go has never been more essential to your overall wellbeing. Relationships take on a heavier vibe and ask you to commit thereby eliminating any residual fluff. Those relationships that no longer serve you will fall away, ready or not. And there is no going back under Pluto’s inevitable one-way metamorphosis.
