2011 Horoscope Forecast
Virgo the Virgin in 2011
money, travel, soul growth
Happy New Year, Virgo! 2011 is a very good year for you. Expansive Jupiter and disruptive Uranus opposing your sign in 2010 loaded you with responsibilities, but Jupiter will finally leave Pisces on January 20th and stride into Aries for the best part of six months, to be joined there by Uranus in mid-March.
Many Virgos married in 2010—and this is indeed a new responsibility! Some of you felt the pressure of Jupiter's passage through Pisces coming from your partnerships (marital or business). Those of you trapped in a bitter relationship or joint venture were released from this torture.
Jupiter's entry into Aries carries a lot of money for you now. Those who are married or engaged will receive wedding list gifts, or money from people chipping in, such as your friends, or your parents, etc. Jupiter and the inner planets (Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Sun) will now work on transforming you, creating a new person within you. They will work on combining you with your significant other, to share responsibilities together and become one entity.
On the 6th of June, Jupiter will change signs and everything else as well. Jupiter will enter sensual Taurus, your zone of higher education and travel, easing up the rest of the year for you. Those applying to a University will receive a boost from Jupiter's new position. They could excel at their studies, or receive the good news of their acceptance at their preferred university. Some will graduate from college with flying colours.
Those waiting for a visa are likely to get it in the next seven months and start preparing for an extended period of travel. Others will explore far away or exotic countries and can look forward to fun times.
Now let's tell you about Saturn.
Saturn, the stern taskmaster of the Zodiac, also left your sign last year—and that, if you ask me, is awesome! 2009 and 2010 were two tough years for you; you basically matured 20 years in two years, learning lessons the hard way. You survived because you are a tolerant and patient sign.
Saturn is now in your zone of money and possessions in general. It has been there since July 2010 and will remain there during the whole of 2011, continuing to teach you the value of money. As we all know, money is a basic essential, and in order to learn its value, you could experience a shortage, especially since Saturn represents restrictions and deprivation. So don't expect to discover this lesson by an excess of income...
The natural advice for this year is to preserve your income. Many people in this celestial bind have off-loaded expensive or frivolous things that did not return the value of their investment. There are things that you can do without and services that you do not need.
Just as with your Pisces friends, this year brings the battle for money to the foreground for you. Saturn will demand that you preserve your personal income, and Jupiter will incite you to spend more of your shared finances.
Love and Money
We have talked about money for this year, but let's talk a little more. Saturn in your money sector could make you greedier, or you could be in the process of building up an amount for future use, for travel maybe?
Jupiter in your house of shared income will increase your finances, resources and possessions sourced from other people, especially your business or marital partner. What will you take from those people to make your own? An inheritance perhaps? We have the feeling Virgo is above stealing, but an unlucky number of you will lose some money or be deprived of your rightful share...
Now, let's talk love!
January is a very good month to start a passionate affair or relationship—or just to have fun loudly! You had a lot of chances in 2010 to find your ideal partner. If you didn't, there'll be more chances in 2011, particularly February, March and April when the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Venus and the Moon visit Pisces, your seventh house of marriage and partnership.
These are great times to find your love, prepare for a wedding, or get married. Some of you have already found your love in 2010 and are preparing to get married in 2011. April is a nice month to do so.
Through it all, the Zodiac is not posing any threats to your love, in fact, it is encouraging you to fall in love and get married.
Home and Family
This year, after a stressful patch at the lunar eclipse in mid-June, family matters will be postponed until November. In late November, while Mercury is retrograde in your house of home and family, a partial solar eclipse will occur in Sagittarius, which rules your domestic situation. In December, a total lunar eclipse will occur, creating emotional conflict between the demands of career and the needs of your household, with Mercury still retrograde in your home zone.
Normally this wouldn't affect you too much but Mars is in your sign, so yes, this will be a tricky time for you. Take extra care of yourself now. Don't physically or emotionally assault anyone at home and be careful not to injure yourself while using home appliances.
Home and family will be discussed a bit further again in the Mercury retrograde section and eclipses section.
Work and Health
Everything should go smoothly here, Virgo. Aquarius, the sign on the cusp of your work and health zone, will be crossed by a conglomerate of planets between mid-January and the 22nd of February. The planets in that sector will vitalize your body from head to toe. Anything you start at the beginning of this period of time will be supported by healing Jupiter's approval.
To make it even better, Saturn, the planet of hardship in your house of money will also bless these efforts. Saturn promises financial rewards that begin to surface after the 2nd of March, when Venus finally reaches your work and health zone.
Strength-wise, you should be feeling pretty healthy. Even more, you may expect to overcome any previous illness, whether physical or mental. This will boost your morale.
Career and Finances
Your career will be featured in June, highlighted with good prospects. Something nice will start unfolding around the 1st of the month. It could affect your finances or your self-esteem, and bring a bonus or a promotion. Your supervisors will probably be happy with the job you're doing.
If you felt under pressure at the beginning of the month, rest assured things will get better with time.
However, mid-month at the total lunar eclipse, tension could arise between the demands of work and the needs of home. From around the 21st you will spend more time with friendly people, meeting new friends and pleasant acquaintances.
Mercury moves into retrograde motion three times a year for about three weeks each time—and this year he starts off already retrograde in Capricorn, as already noted. This phase heralds a time of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and communications, especially concerning children, romance or speculation. 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 time Merc turns will be from the 30th of March to the 23rd of April in Aries, your house of joint finances, inheritances—and life's mysteries. There will be a lot of talk during these two months about unexpected financial income that will be delayed for one reason or the other. There could be money from your spouse involved. If you need to sign any important documents, try not to do so between these dates, as something misleading or even treacherous could be found in the documents. Sexuality will become more fascinating and a friend from the past may wish to become more. Don't count on a long-term commitment, dear Virgo. Enjoy it while it lasts.
The second retro phase will occur in your 12th house, between the 3rd and the 26th of August. This one will cause you to retreat from society and think calmly. You could be considering a pending issue at the time. After that you will reach a decision that will be welcomed by all parties.
The third time Mercury backflips will occur in your house of home and family as we said before, between the 23rd of November and the 12th of December. Be careful of this one, as it may drive you to commit mistakes, especially when planets at the time will be hostile to Mars in your sign. Mars will push you to be aggressive and impatient, so don't surrender to those urges.
A change at home is expected around this time. If you are refurbishing your home, be patient, as the work could be flawed and then a repair would be mandatory, so be prepared.
Lunar Life with Lady Moon
Your Full Moon will be on the 19th of March, when the Sun in Pisces will illuminate the Moon in your sign. This will clarify a few ideas (or pose a few questions) regarding your financial position and capacity.
Will you be able to survive with the money that you have on hand? Will you need financial support? We think the 19th of March will reveal the facts and provide you with the answers.
Your New Moon occurs on the 29th of August. This should to be a wonderful time for you, as this Moon will receive Venus's love, Jupiter's good luck and Pluto's wealth. Surrounded by friends and family, you will feel very happy or at least very satisfied with the way things are turning out.
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 tend to affect work, direction and relations with people in authority. Eclipses of the Moon 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 be on the 4th of January, in your house of romance, children and games, when you'll be inclined to take a risky gamble. Be careful: loss of money is also probable. You're not allowed to squander money this year!
Be especially vigilant with children. One of them could fall sick with a high fever or an injury. Pregnant women, be careful of accidents.
The next partial eclipse of the Sun will be on the 1st of June at the New Moon in Gemini. This one should be benefic. As we said earlier, your career will be going forward and you could secure a promotion or a bonus. Take nothing for granted though and don't expect any rewards if you haven't been playing fair.
A total lunar eclipse occurs on June 15th, with the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Sagittarius. This creates a good deal of emotional tension between the demands of work and the needs of home. Mercury and Ceres are under pressure too, so prepare for some losses, especially if you don't pay attention to the whispers, or carelessly blurt out some indiscretion.
The third partial solar eclipse is on July 1st. This one is sending mixed signals from Saturn, implying sanctions and restrictions, and good rays from Jupiter implying good luck and expansion. It all depends on your situation at the time, but I want you to be careful, because there will be too many conflicts in the sky at this time. You could lose a friend or that promised bonus or promotion. Something will happen that will affect your morale so stay aware around this time.
The fourth partial solar and second total lunar eclipses will occur on the 25th November and the 10th of December and we are back to domestic problems. Take good care of your mother, as she could fall ill or you could get into a disagreement with her. This is a tough time for you Virgo, but after the 10th of December, the situation will clear up and things will get better. The planets will band together to bring a happy ending to the year.
That's it dear Virgo for 2011, hope you enjoyed it. Keep up with our daily, weekly and monthly predictions through the year for a more in-depth analysis.
