Have you been down on your luck in the past few years? You can finally breathe a sigh of relief! 2011 opens with a bang. On New Year's Day, Jupiter, planet of good fortune, conjoins Uranus, planet of luck, in Pisces - and both of them connect delightfully with the Moon and Venus.
This indicates relief from worries concerning creativity, friendships, and romance. But it won't stop there. The Sun conjoins Saturn and Mars in Capricorn, combining with the Moon and Venus - so career and money problems should begin to ease up, too. Your circumstances won't be perfect - but they should be better.
Are you an Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius? These are the Fire Signs. With Mercury in Sagittarius at the start of 2011, your mind will be sharper than usual, so your curiosity will increase. You might decide to learn a new skill or pursue a subject that has always fascinated you.
The presence of Neptune in Aquarius could imply a stronger interest in the spiritual and otherworldly - so you could find yourself digging deep into the unknown. But you won't forget your worldly interests. You want to prosper in this world as well as in the higher realms.
Since the world economy is apt to be recovering, natives of Earth Signs - Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn - are concentrating on getting their finances in order, and creating a higher level of security for themselves. If your Sun is in one of the Earth Signs, you might want to work as much as possible to build your savings and job security.
However, you also need to take care of yourself and let yourself cut loose once and a while. Don't work 24/7. If you do, it might backfire.
For Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius - the Air Signs - you will also want to take advantage of any upturn in the world economy. You might curtail your social life in order to rebuild your bank account, but don't give up the lighter side of life altogether. Learn all about other people - and this doesn't mean only fellow workaholics. Socialize and continue to make new friends. You need it.
The presence of Neptune in Aquarius shows that you'll spend more time pursuing spiritual goals, and you'll meet some interesting people in the process.
Natives of the Water Signs - Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces - may have the best year of all! On January 1, Cancer will be on the cusp of the Midheaven, high in the sky, implying improving circumstances. Scorpio boasts that wonderful Moon-Venus conjunction, which bodes well for romance and friendships.
And finally, the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Pisces brings happiness, luck, and advancement in the arts. The only problem might be that you'll worry that your good fortune is just a dream. Well, my friend, it's all very, very real. So, enjoy it! Natives of all signs should list their goals for 2011 and plan out how they can best make things happen.
The planets are there for you, in better form than ever before. All you have to do is make the most of the opportunities presented. For a more detailed outlook, read your sign's 2011 Horoscope!
