2011 Horoscope Forecast
Gemini the Twins in 2011
hopes & dreams more serious and dedicated
Happy New Year Gemini! You have been through a great deal recently, having had to undergo the experience of stern Saturn in picky Virgo and expansive Jupiter in mystic Pisces. But here you are, looking better than ever! It's a period you should talk about to your Cancerian friends, as they will be passing through the same conditions in 2011. How did you manage? What went on and how did you react?
Saturn in Virgo probably brought domestic stress and new responsibilities towards the home. Those of you who didn't feel that coming from home were probably under great stress from a female authority figure.
Jupiter in Pisces brought career advancement plus some additional responsibilities, but Saturn and Jupiter were simultaneously facing off, which would have added fireworks to the situation. In any case, that's behind you now. Saturn has already left Virgo to enter Libra and mighty Jupiter will leave Pisces for Aries on the 20th of January 2011.
Saturn in Libra will mean that the care or responsibility moved from the home to children and they could be the source of a headache now. They will simply demand much more time than previously. Romantic involvements could become more serious and dedicated, or perhaps restricted through no fault of your own.
Some Twins could also be learning a creative pastime, such as painting, drawing, singing or dancing, or other fun activity. Others are simply rescheduling their lives to re-inject some fun and happiness. Saturn in Libra is a very good position for you, Gemini, so expect things to go your way. Let me tell you that you're one of the luckiest signs for 2011!
So as we said, Jupiter will enter your house of friendship for the first five months. Snatch the opportunity quickly to expand your group of friends. Could it get any better?
Yes, you'll get out with your friends to share ideas, talk and have fun in 2011. Your business could see returns of the initial investment and profits as well. Your hopes, wishes and dreams can come true in the first five months of 2011. You will be happy. Well, you deserve it - you've been through a lot lately.
In June, Jupiter enters Taurus for the rest of the year, which will cause you to slowly retreat from centre-stage. You will probably seek solitude from mid May, but it won't be something awful or sad. In fact, you really need some time alone to think-or to practice your favorite activity undisturbed by the madding crowd. A phase of learning is in the stars for you.
Jupiter's new post will be agreeable to transformative Pluto in ambitious Capricorn and imaginative Neptune in sensitive Pisces. It is a wonderful time for practicing anything theatrical and to explore your emotions. Be careful not to go too deep, though, as it could all go into your head and ruin your good sense.
In other words, be careful of too much of a good thing. Jupiter's placement is also one that can signify mental problems, but if you keep it under control, things will be wonderful for you, Gemini. June and July are two of the best months for all Geminians.
Relationships: the Journey to the Heart
Love is looking good all year long except in late November and early December, when you'll enter a thorny period with your significant other. It is not something you should worry about now, for too many things are expected to happen then, the planets being in so many different aspects, making the outcome rather confusing. I'll outline the likely situations in this forecast.
Late September and October will be a good period for romance or for tackling a somewhat difficult romantic association. If you're in love and willing to commit, there will be a slowdown or a delay, which will prove very annoying. Someone at home might not approve of your relationship.
If already married, or in a committed relationship, this will be a tricky phase for you. There may be disagreements with your marital or business partner, particularly regarding your home and household.
Money-wise, the year is a good one, as old and new investments will be very profitable in 2011. Anything to do with art firstly, research secondly and banking thirdly will be very successful for you this year.
Predominantly, the first five months of the year are carrying the money bags for you, Gemini. December is also looking good, seeing money from your spouse, partner or other people.
Home and Family
Your home and family will roll along nicely until late November and early December, when a clash is likely to occur. Your domestic zone will then be plagued by Mars. This placement is critical as it will mean some form of aggression. Self-restraint is advised Gemini; otherwise you could enter a long period of disputes with those at home, especially the male element.
At the same time, the other planets will have reached fiery Sagittarius, your partnership zone, which means your partners will be affected too. Mercury will be retrograde, the Moon and the Sun will be flashpointed by the eclipses, and the planets will move forward with the exception of Mars..
The mighty Warrior remains in Virgo, your home zone, right into 2012—and there he turns retrograde in January. To be more precise, Mars enters Virgo on the 11th of November 2011 and will leave the sign on the 3rd of July 2012. If you are planning to get married between November and December, don't expect everybody at home to be happy about it, or to be there at the wedding. Perhaps they don't like your choice of beloved, or maybe the timing or the place—or it could simply be a case of envy, or male chauvinism!
Work and Health
Physically, you should feel great for the whole of the year, except around the occurrence of an eclipse, and after Mars reaches Virgo (the 12th of November). From that day on, you will be prone to infections, inflammation of the digestive system and nervousness, not to mention edgy conditions in the domicile. Mars will remain in Virgo for the rest of year, before turning retrograde in January. So you will have to watch your temper. If not you will end up with an accident due to imprudence, or in a conflict with the authorities (the police, for example).
So remember to release the stress and to remain alert.
Career and Finances
Your career sector will be visited by the inner planets in late February, March and April. It is a good phase, full of activities, and nothing will disrupt the normal flow of things. Your efforts will come to fruition in April and you will be rewarded.
February and March will represent your last chance to break out of your comfort zone in career matters and take up a challenge. February and March are very auspicious months to branch out into something new.
Neptune will enter Pisces, your career sector, on the 4th of April. All planets will then leave Pisces except for Neptune, which being a very slow mover, will only reach the first degree of Pisces before turning retrograde on the 2nd of June. Its entry alone will bring an artistic dimension to your job. From now on, you will have more scope to be imaginative and creative at work. Neptune even encourages you to take a more spiritual path in your career.
Could you think of joining a temple? Such a decision will need careful consideration. Neptune will give you that chance when it rolls back to Aquarius once more on August 5—for the last time in our lifetimes!
Neptune turns direct again in early November, so decisions can be made then with regard to the developments that have made themselves felt over the lengthy retro phase.
Nothing very extraordinary will happen in your career in 2011. You will most probably be living last year's successes or failures.
Mercury symbolizes communication and thinking, and you are the sign most influenced by this as Mercury is your ruling planet. Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times a year for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds a time of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and communications. The breakdowns that occur are a function of neglect, inattention, simple misunderstandings or component failure. They will often bring to the fore the very contingency we should have planned for and didn't. When the retrograde phase occurs, watch out for such possibilities as well as putting off major decision-making or the signing of crucial documents and agreements. We tend to miss things while Mercury is in reverse motion and then have to come back and do them again. A process of review in the retrograde phase can efficiently show where problems might lie and help us with damage control or the mending of things. Double check arrangements at these times! What you think you've said and what others have understood will often prove to be two different things.
The first retrograde period for the year will be in your house of friendship and income from career. But I have a feeling that it will concern money. So there could be delays concerning incomes. You could be feeling somewhat depressed between the 30th of March and the 23rd of April, or your line of thinking could be erroneous at the time. Don't make decisions during this time. To be on the safe side, be careful not to hurt any of your friends.
The second retro phase will be in your own house of communication. This one could be bad, worse than the first time. Don't be too worried - just stay alert, Gemini. Again, decisions should be delayed between the 3rd and the 26th of August. Be careful when driving because your car could break down, in fact, it would probably pay to have a mechanical checkup.
The third retrograde phase is due between the 23rd of November and the 13th of December and concerns partnerships. You could end up with a difference of opinion between you and your partner that could lead to arguments and disputes at home. Celibates preparing for marriage at this time will face difficulties or setbacks. It is a thorny time for all Geminis.
Lunar Life with Lady Moon
Both your New Moon and your Full Moon will be eclipsed this year, dear Gemini.
Your New Moon comes on the 1st of June, a perfect time for personal development, especially seeing that a group of planets will be in your twelfth house... of deep thinking!
If you feel at all unhappy under this Lunation, all you have to do is wait. Things start to go your way the week after. Since the eclipse will occur under the benediction of Saturn, you should feel encouraged to set new paths for yourself, or to make new beginnings. It will probably carry good news, mostly to those actually born on that day.
Your Full Moon glows on the 10th of December. At this point, you will be forced to make another change... in your behaviour towards other people, especially your partner. Listen well. Try to figure out what is missing or what is wrong... and look after your spouse if he or she has fallen ill.
Eclipses of both the Sun and the Moon often indicate the end of a cycle or a significant change in the direction or pattern of the affairs governed by the house in which the eclipse falls. Eclipses of the Sun may affect work, direction and relations with people in authority. Eclipses of the Moon may affect matters of home, family and emotions as well as relations with women and children. Both may affect your health.
The first solar eclipse will take place on the 4th of January and could indicate an accident, so be careful. It could also see a loss of money, in a business, a marital partnership, or a sum entrusted to you.
The second solar eclipse will be on the 1st of June in your sign. This one seems to be okay, with no hard aspects. In fact, it is more likely to bring you happiness, especially to those born on that date. Things are expected to go your way, if not on the 1st of June, then in the ensuing week or two.
A lunar eclipse will follow on the 15th of June. Whatever decision you will make around that time will be blessed.
The third partial solar eclipse will be on the 1st of July. It relates to your money, but this one is probably not so benevolent. Study your finances very carefully before making a decision. Loss of money or large investment is expected around this date, so be alert and tactful.
The fourth solar eclipse and subsequent lunar eclipse will be on the 25th of November and the 10th of December respectively, in your house of marriage. This eclipse will receive problematic energy, as Mercury will be retrograde at this time and Mars will be squaring your sign. There are likely to be disagreements with the family, your partner or beloved. Decisions are not favored, particularly plans to get married. The environment will be pushing and pulling you into different directions. Diplomacy, self-restraint and patience are advised.
That's it for 2011, Gemini. Hope it's been helpful! Don't forget to follow up our daily, weekly and monthly forecasts for more in-depth predictions.
