2011 Horoscope Forecast
Scorpio, the Scorpion in 2011
work improvements; marriage & partnership favoured
Happy New Year, Scorpions! Last year, 2010, was a great year for you, wasn't it? While you probably didn't win the lottery (well, some of you did!), a number of you travelled abroad for business or pleasure, while others were promoted due to Mars' long sojourn in Leo. In general, all of you had some great moments during the year.
Well, 2010 is over and Jupiter's visit to Aries in 2011 means there will be a lot of work for you to carry out. To be blunt, the first five months of the year will be overloaded with errands and tasks piling up on your agenda.
Yes, Jupiter will expand and bless your work so you will not only have too many things to do, but you will also complete them successfully. Your boss at work could heap a number of projects on your shoulders, which will keep you busy every day, all day long. You could also commence a training course to expand your knowledge and skills. This will broaden your experience at work.
Those of you who are unemployed and looking for a job should get ready. Write or update your CV and post them everywhere you can, as there is a definite possibility that you will be hired in 2011. That goes for Scorpions already employed and looking for another job too.
On the 5th of June, Jupiter will change position, entering your seventh house of partnerships, both business and marriage. Jupiter's passage through this sector will bless your efforts concerning these issues. To those of you wanting to get married, get out there and find that partner you are looking for, because there is a high probability that you will in 2011 and if not, 2012.
However you should always remember that whatever the association is, it will create a new responsibility towards the people you are connecting yourself with.
Okay, let's talk Saturn now. Stern Saturn is in your twelfth house of seclusion and hidden enemies all year. So the natural advice is for you to beware of any false friends. Be cautious when speaking of your plans in the open. You could be speaking from a good heart, oblivious to other people's plans or intentions, but if you don't watch what you say this year, you could end up with a serious scandal in March or April.
Some of you are preparing for or working on a project that you don't want anyone to know about, at least for now. Saturn in Libra indicates necessary commitment and hard work. Another word of caution, Scorpio. Don't over-estimate your capabilities, because continuous delivery of hard work could damage your health in the end. One last thing. If you have any mental problems, no matter how slight, these could get worse if left untreated.
Relationships: the Journey to the Heart
As we said earlier, this is the year for marriage—although it might not seem so in the first few months. Be patient. Around mid May, the subject of marriage will come up several times and will continue to do so until after the end of 2011.
If it is the year for marriage then it is undoubtedly the year for love (unless you get married for other reasons!), so get ready to find the person you will share the rest of your life with. If you already have that person, then plan your marriage, put in all the necessary groundwork and everything will run smoothly, with a beautiful day at the end of it.
Scorpios stuck in a bad marriage will have several chances to break the bond (or trap!), or else reconcile differences with their spouses.
Those of you who are only out for fun had their best chances in 2010 and will not be so lucky in 2011. Nevertheless, March and April are two good months for romantic affairs.
As for business partnerships, 2011 is also a great year for successful associations, particularly after the five first months are over. So if you're a business person you could sign a very important contract in the latter part of 2011. But you will have to be very careful how you spend your money, especially in November and December, because there is a significant probability that you will lose money in that period of time.
Home and Family
Your home and family are safe this year Scorpio, although a hot debate or an argumentative masculine figure can make his presence felt inside the home after mid-January this year. Try to understand what is going on, as the phase is temporary. Some Scorpions will start renovations on their home and others will turn their home into a place of seclusion, rest and spirituality.
Whichever it is, the going will get tougher and faster as you step into February, and your work will come to fruition beginning on the 1st of March. Good luck!
Work and Health
Last year your Libran friends got the lion's share of the workload, while Jupiter was in their sixth house of work and health. This year it will be your turn to handle Jupiter, Scorpio, for the expansive Lord of Fortune moves into your sixth house.
Your workload will increase exponentially—and so will your good luck in achieving your tasks successfully. You may even need to hire extra help! The quality of the work you deliver will progress rapidly. This said, you should be careful, because success always has a few undercover foes. Remember what happened to Julius Caesar? If you don't know the story, then you should definitely read up about what happened to the man who had too much success.
If you are looking for a job, then this is the year to intensify your search. You might not land the job of your wishes, but it will probably do.
Physically, you will be prone to problems of excess. Those overtime hours will take their toll on your body in the end if you don't allow yourself a break, or some time off. Reciprocally, too much self-indulgence will also result in health risks. Expansive Jupiter in your health sector will cause you to gain a few pounds, if you don't watch your intake. Since Uranus will also be in this sector for a long period of time, you will have to exert self-control. Uranus is very well known for outbursts of tension.
Career and Finances
In August, there will be a problems balancing the commitments between your home and your job. This month will represent a stressful period for you because you will need to sort things out on your own.
You could be asked to travel for work at a time when there is conflict. Once again, don't lose your head - stay calm and try to figure out a way to balance your responsibilities. This phase is temporary and the rewards will are on their way - you just need to be patient.
Your career path will unfold before your eyes as you push forward. As we said before, be cautious of people around you, and play your cards close to your chest. Take good care of your health and you will be fine.
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. 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. 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!
All education, communication and commerce should thrive, except maybe when Mercury slows down and then turns retrograde. The first time this happens is in your house of work and health, between the 30th of March and the 23rd of April. By that time you will probably be so busy with work that you might be error-prone. Be extra careful during this time; check and double-check everything before you are satisfied, because you could have to redo part of your project. Be careful of injuries while completing your daily tasks as of the 15th of April.
Mercury's second retrograde phase will start on the 2nd of August and will end on the 26th of the same month in your house of career. Consequently, a significant delay concerning your career could occur - you may be promised something, but there will be setbacks. It could be a raise, or a promotion. After mid-September, Mars will visit your career sector and mobilize the pending issues, whilst accelerating the pace.
The third retro session will occur in your house of money, between the 23rd of November and the 12th of December. Don't make any deals during this time or sign any contracts if at all possible; avoid making any large purchases. Instead, slow down and take your time to study everything before you decide what to do with your money, because you could fall for an act of deception.
Lunar Life with Lady Moon
Your Full Moon comes at Wesak, the annual celebration of the Buddha, on the 17th of May, a Moon full of love and romance, especially for those of you planning to get married. It will be a good Moon, one which blesses all kinds of commitment you make around that time.
Your New Moon will also be benevolent. It happens on the 26th of October. Any decision you make at this time will be blessed by Pluto in your communication sector, which means you will have enough determination to carry through the promises that you will make to yourself. It is a good time to quit that smoking habit, for example.
This New Moon will also be a signal to make a fresh start in your relationships, or with your significant other.
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 solar eclipse will be on the 4th of January in your house of local travel, so reckless or long distance driving is not advised around that date. You should take your car in for a checkup, just to be on the safe side. Forewarned is forearmed. You may also clash verbally with one of your opponents or rivals, because you will be nervous and feisty around that time.
The second eclipse of the Sun for the year will be on the 1st of June. This one brings good omens. If in love and looking for marriage, it will be a perfect time to propose. Be ready for a positive answer! This eclipse will bond you strongly with your other half.
If looking for financial support from financial institutions, family or friends, you could receive it around that date, or at least get positive feedback regarding the matter.
It is followed by a total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on the 15th of June, when monetary issues and relations with financial partners, such as banks, family members etc could be a little out of joint. Emotions surface that are likely to have poor communication at their base and may involve money, or psychological motivations. It's not the day to try to take out a loan.
The third partial solar eclipse is on July 1st and it will be followed by a total lunar eclipse on the 15th of July. Travel is indicated particularly between these two dates. Try to postpone it until after the two eclipses if possible. If not, try to avoid the 1st of July and the two days before and after it, because the eclipse on that day will be receiving bad vibes from Saturn, Pluto and Uranus.
The fourth partial solar and second total lunar eclipses will occur on the 25th November and the 10th of December respectively. You should look over your finances very carefully and don't allow yourself to be deceived or pushed into a deal that you're not one hundred percent sure of; the indications are not favourable. Again, don't sign any contracts until after Mercury finished going retrograde, although you could be very motivated to do so.
That's it for this 2011, dear Scorpio. Hope we've been a help! Keep abreast with our daily, weekly and monthly forecasts throughout the year for more details.
