Astronomy, yes. Astrology, not so much. With correct wording and just a touch of vagueness anyone can find truth and meaning in their horoscope. I always take my predictions with a grain of salt.
Here is what the stars have in store for me for the upcoming year.
Libra Outlook for 2011 Overview
Oh the lessons you have endured over the course of 2010. You’re not the same people-pleasing darling you were a mere 12 months ago. On the contrary darling — you are in the midst of a powerful process of cultivating the kind of backbone that makes greatness. Thanks to big daddy Saturn you’re learning your lessons well in relinquishing laziness, strengthening discipline, and realizing your authority. You’re taking yourself more seriously in the arenas where it matters most
Relationships bring plenty of passion, drama and unexpected plot twists especially during the spring. By the time May rolls around you’ll be dealing with an unprecedented amount of planetary energy firing up your relationship sector. With six planets including Venus, your ruler and Jupiter, the planet of abundance lining up in your partnership sector you’ll be anything but lonely. The challenge lies in staying true to your own needs without getting lost in the persuasive me-me-me demands of your significant others.
Although some of Saturn’s lessons will weigh in on a heavier note and perhaps depriving you of any former easy-outs or shortcuts, you have the uncanny ability to take it all in stride. There’s something to be said for the inherent Libran laid-back approach to life’s challenges. But under current planetary duress you may join the ranks of the stressful millions in your quest for regaining inner peace and unshakable equilibrium. Forever striving for that elusive balance, you’re being put through the cosmic ringer when it comes to finding and holding your own with others. But you will get there Libra — just you wait and see!
Year 2011 Career
You’re still revamping your true vocational calling by cutting out all of the extraneous little side-jobs that once ate up so much of your precious time. The final days of the North Node in your career sector at the start of 2011 give you one last prodding to determine your own true north. No longer can you beg the question. Fence sitting in all aspects of your life is quickly becoming an extinct option, especially when it comes to your work. By nature you’re indecisive but 2011 is the year for commitment. Put your doubts aside and just get on with what you do best: bringing more beauty and harmony to everything you touch. At the end of the day, you’re an artist — and that’s that.
Although you may still be saddled with your fair share of responsibilities, you’re finally able to see the forest through the trees and get a grip on the bigger career picture. You prefer any work that involves socializing, utilizing your creative and intellectual talents and of course flirting your heart out. This is why sitting behind an isolated desk doing menial tasks will just never rock your world. You’re finally coming to terms with saying no to anything you consider a giant waste of your time, and you can thank Saturn for that. Adding to the planetary support to align work with soul, Neptune, the planet of glamour and dreams enters your work sector this April through August. It shall then again return in 2012 to stay for an extended 14-year ride, making sure that you absolutely adore what you do. This is a wonderful opportunity to find meaning and inspiration in your work.
Year 2011 Romantic
Co-dependency be damned, Libra! You’ve had your fill of accommodating every wish, desire and need of your mate to your own detriment. You’re also finished with sugarcoating the truth and resorting to passive-aggressive tactics to get your needs met. For a sign that prefers balance, such extreme give and no take throws your scales way off kilter. The imbalance can no longer be ignored or justified. The rules of the game have changed and you’ve learned to just say no. Saturn has been working hard on rebalancing the karmic scales and forcing you to draw some serious lines in order to regain important equilibrium in your partnerships. Relationships continue to be a major priority this year Libra, but topping this list is the relationship you have with number one. Falling in love with yourself and being true to your needs is no longer a luxury but a dire necessity.
You’ve survived enough painful romantic disillusionments to last you a lifetime during Neptune’s spell in your romantic sector over the past fourteen years. Of course falling in love certainly has it’s high points but the crash after the reality check gets to be too much after enough heart-break repeats. The good news is that Neptune leaves your romantic sector for good allowing you to once again trust your perceptions when choosing your match. Love is especially in the air when Venus enters Libra in late September and early October, just in time to guarantee a wonderfully amorous birthday season.
