Any lingering clouds obscuring your professional vision will pass as Neptune leaves your career sector in 2011 in April. This is a momentous shift considering Neptune has worked to glamorize, spiritualize and at other times blur your professional aims since 1998.

A little bravado goes a long way in January and February with Mars firing up your career sector. Don’t be afraid to push for what you really want. The squeaky bull gets the promotion, so declare your intentions loudly and clearly while the opportunities are peaking.

Saying no to others is the first step towards finally saying yes to yourself. Your best moneymaking opportunities arrive just in time for your birthday. Working hard in June and July garners major pay-offs for a decadent vacation in August.
As 2011 kicks off, you continue to benefit from the long-term effects of Venus in Scorpio in your relationship sector (since September 2009).

You’ll have a chance to incorporate each and every powerful lesson from 2009 into the core of your being prepared for the next level of intimacy. Enough is enough, Taurus -- you’re ready for the real McCoy when it comes to love. Haven’t you settled enough, taking care of everyone else’s needs without getting in touch with what it is to love and be loved in return?
By the time your birthday rolls around, Venus will have blissfully entered her home turf in Taurus, assuring that you’ll feel at your beautiful best.
