2011 Horoscope Forecast
Pisces, the Fishes in 2011
Expand Your Income!
Happy New Year, Pisces! Can you sing hallelujah? You should, because the troubles of 2008, 2009 and 2010 are finally over!
Saturn left Virgo in July 2010, promising not to return for more than 20 years, and the stern Lord of Karma is now tramping through Libra, the sign of his exaltation. That's more like it. Saturn in Virgo forced you to submit to your partner's demands. It probably woke you up from your dreams, only to face the pressing difficulties of reality. So by now you know your duties and responsibilities towards your partner, and your marriage or partnerships in general have also had their share of the lash. You've been tested by Saturn.
A large number of Fish were married in the past three years; others passed through difficult times with their partners, and a few of those got divorced, but all Pisceans came through those years with lessons hard won. Saturn's move into Libra means it's now time to learn the value of joint finances and shared responsibilities. You now respect your spouse? Fine. It is now time to respect the value of a painfully earned dollar, especially if it's your partner's money.
It is well known that Pisces as a sign is rather nonchalant when it comes to money! Gosh, you can spend a fortune without even noticing. Well, not anymore, not in 2011. This year, you are urged to change this aspect of your nature, otherwise you will be facing a financial crisis.
Yes, Saturn in Libra is urging you to preserve your income, especially funds coming out of other people's pockets—most importantly, the money you share with your life's partner. You will probably feel that your partner, father, or any financial source you depend on, is forbidding you from spending money, or reducing your allowance. Conversely, are you willing to share your money in a common project? Maybe you're not. Be careful, as the battle is fierce this year.
Fortunate Jupiter visited your sign in 2010 and so success was your ally last year, or at least in the second half of it, when Saturn finally left Virgo. Some of you graduated, others got lucky with their investments or life in general, and all of you regained the self-esteem you had seemingly lost.
Jupiter's mission this year is to increase your income. It will work on blessing your investments. Any sound investment you made in the past or will make in 2011 will return the expected revenues.
Jupiter will leave your house of money in June to enter Taurus, your house of communication. This will keep you busy on the phone, the internet and just chatting with people, exchanging ideas. It will be good for Piscean students, as this passage will increase your capabilities for learning. It promises to be a very successful period in this domain.
One significant event is left: Neptune's entry into your sign. Neptune enters Pisces at the beginning of April; then it will turn retrograde in June, leaving your sign at the beginning of August, and returning to it next year. Neptune has long been in your twelfth house creating mental complications, bad dreams, or sometimes potentially good ones. Neptune's visit to your sign this year, from April to August, will intensify the sense of creativity in you, especially as it will be in a good relationship with Pluto in Capricorn, stimulating rewards from your career. Neptune will help Pisceans use their creativity and imagination to achieve excellent and artful chef d'oeuvres at work.
Relationships: the Journey to the Heart
This year is full of money or money issues. As we said, Jupiter's visit will carry money, but we kept the downside for this section. Jupiter's move to Aries could bring money, yes, but it could also urge you to squander money lavishly.
Should this happen, you will wind up with a period of hardship, because pennypinching Saturn is standing face to face with extravagant Jupiter, which could bring bad luck or penalties. If you don't watch how you spend your money this year, you will run out of it, or at least encounter a shortage. Enough said about that, let us turn to love!
This year is full of love, happiness and new faces. I'm not saying it's the year of love, but there are no apparent hindrances to love; on the contrary, there are many aspects favoring romantic times, as for example on the 1st of July, when a partial eclipse will happen in your house of passionate affairs. You could easily fall in love around this date—and right after that you could start a lovely relationship that will last for a long time.
The married Fish will find good occasions to revive your love for your spouse after the eclipse. We will keep you posted through the year about this period and others.
All Pisceans, especially females, are urged to tread carefully with husbands or boyfriends in November and December, especially if the boys are inclined to be aggressive. Apart from this glitch, your love is pretty safe this year.
Home and Family
In June, you will be put under pressure from home and family. The eclipse at the 1st of June announces the beginning of a month that is full of responsibilities towards the domestic sector. Something good will happen around this date that will keep you busy taking care of things at home for the whole month.
There is nothing threatening the peace at home this year, though—just the usual little dramas..... Be careful not to enter into futile shenanigans with your other half at home in November and December.
Work and Health
Saturn rules chronic conditions and the Lord of Karma made his final shift into Libra in July 2010. Saturn turns retrograde on Jan 26, amidst a flurry of harsh aspects, including a square from Mercury. This may restimulate chronic problems, especially those affecting pessimism, hypochondria, nervous disorders and obstructive conditions in the bowels. Blood afflictions and arthritic conditions, especially of the fingers, may re-emerge. Maintain a positive attitude and remember that Saturn's job is to point out obstructions and obstacles, so that we may become healed through overcoming them.
Saturn turns direct in Libra on June 13, a good time to implement plans using whatever skills and abilities you possess to contribute to your own independence, financial and otherwise. If you are forced to understand and responsibly handle debts, monetary assets, and material and non-material resources at this time, do these things willingly and well. It is the key to your future security.
Career and Finances
The Sun, Mercury and Venus will visit your career sector in November and December, and Mercury will retrograde there too. It marks an important phase in your life. A delay or setback at work will be very frustrating. You could be asked to redo a certain task, or you could come under pressure from a stern authoritarian figure for a mistake that you made.
November and December are two tough months for all Pisceans, so be careful to check any aggression at work or with your partner. You'll feel under stress during this period, resulting in a verbal battle; so keep your emotions under control. Don't be too concerned, this period is transitory.
Pisceans will receive the opportunity to be employed in a new job or career, which will see new and different responsibilities.
Mercury moves into retrograde motion three times a year as a rule, for about three weeks each time. The retro phase marks a time of confusion and misunderstandings, which can affect arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and communications. Breakdowns that occur are largely due to neglect, inattention, misunderstandings or component failure. They often bring out the very issues we should have planned for—and didn't. During the retro period, and even for a week or two before and after, in the Mercury Shadow, we need to be aware of this tendency. It is best to put off major decisions, or signing crucial documents and agreements. It is not exactly wise to make important decisions while Mercury is retrograde, since it is likely they will be clouded by misinformation, poor communication and careless thinking. Mercury is all about mental clarity and the power of the mind, so when Mercury is retrograde these intellectual characteristics tend to be less acute than usual. Make sure you pay attention to the small print!
Mercury will retrograde three times in 2011, the first time being in your house of money, between the 30th of March and the 23rd of April. In between those two dates losses are probable if you don't handle your finances adequately. Don't buy or sell during this time, or if you must, check everything twice.
The second retro phase is between the 3rd and the 26th of August; this will happen in your house of work and health. Be careful when driving; get a health check if you're unwell. You could injure yourself, particuklarly in the arms, legs or feet, impairing your mobility temporarily. Take the necessary treatment and the requisite recuperating time. Rest is good.
This retrograde period could also concern your work, where you may need to redo a project or some part of it. If so, you might have overlooked an important detail; the very thing that will force you to go back and redo the calculations and take the new data into consideration.
The third time happens between the 23rd of November and the 13th of December. This one occurs in your house of career, in a time that could prove to be difficult for you. It could be noticed in this time that you are not yet experienced enough and that you need to go through more training to build the necessary know-how. As we said before, it is a period of pressure, during which you should basically obey the instructions of those who are in charge.
Lunar Life with Lady Moon
Your New Moon arrives on March 4th, conjunct dynamic Mars in Pisces, in a very good aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, your house of friends, hopes and wishes. More enthusiastic and action-oriented than usual, you will be motivated to start new projects, or act on things you’ve been jumping up and down about for some time. Don't get too hot-headed or impatient, dear Pisces, or you'll get steamed up. Take care to avoid head injuries, cuts, stings, or contracting a fever. You attract and inspire others with your energy dynamo! You can get a lot done, especially in cooperation with friends.
Your Full Moon comes on September 12th, with the Sun in your seventh house, so everything must be just so. Your partner or spouse is likely to seem rather demanding and critical, especially where money is concerned. Investigation and research yield satisfying results now. Digging for buried treasure is liable to be rewarded. Lost items may be found and debts or favours repaid. An excellent time that inspires shrewd business decisions, psychological analysis, and property assessment. It is time to heal past wounds, so that you can forge ahead with things that seem to have been kept out of sight for too long. Be your beautiful healing self and use your charm to find a way through it. Edgy romance is in the stars tonight!
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 affect work, direction and relations with people in authority. Eclipses of the Moon affect matters connected with home, family and emotions as well as relations with women and children, and with the public at large. Both may affect your health.
The first eclipse will be in Capricorn on the 4th of January, a partial solar eclipse. This indicates the loss of a friend, or a group of friends, but not necessarily in a sad way: it could simply being that they are taking a long trip. There could also be a minor impediment to the development of your career.
A second partial eclipse of the Sun will be in Gemini on the 1st of June, followed by a total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on the 15th of June. These two happen in your house of family and home. A change at home is expected, which could mean a move, or the return of someone who has been away.
The third partial solar eclipse is at the New Moon in Cancer on July 1st. Take especial care of your kids. If they came for a visit last month, then they are expected to leave again around this date.
The fourth partial solar and second total lunar eclipses will occur on the 25th November at the New Moon in Sagittarius and the 10th of December at the Full Moon in Gemini respectively, in your house of career. As we said earlier it is a time of stress for Pisceans; some will find new employment and start feeling the pressure and some unlucky few will clash with an authority figure which will cause them to quit their jobs.
That's it for 2011, dear Pisces. To receive more in-depth predictions, follow our daily, weekly and monthly predictions.
