For you, Taurus, 2011 is a powerful time of endings and beginnings. You are completing a 12-year opportunity cycle, making this a very significant year. For the first six months, your efforts should go toward finishing long-term projects. You may be in a rush when Jupiter in speedy Aries is in your 12th House of Endings from January 22 to June 4. You want to hurry up and complete old activities so you can move on to the
Back in 2000, when expansive Jupiter was last in your sign, you may have set out in a new direction as your horizons widened and your interests changed. Jupiter returns to determined Taurus on June 4, signaling the start of the next adventure. This is when your common sense should kick in, telling you to slow down and get it right. Be patient, for this wave will take months to unfold -- Jupiter remains in your sign until June 11, 2012. Instead of racing ahead, do what you Bulls do best: carefully create new goals, start slowly, and build momentum as you gain clarity and confidence.
Meanwhile, contractive Saturn in relationship-oriented Libra is in your 6th House of Work and Service. There's no jumping to the front of the line now; you must apply yourself intensely without rocking the boat. It's all about doing what's expected of you without a lot of fanfare. Fortunately, if you carry your load, others will eventually take notice and reward you for your efforts. Taking shortcuts will be frowned upon; the best results will come from your dogged persistence.
That which cannot be counted suddenly counts more when Uranus the Awakener blasts into impulsive Aries and your imaginative 12th house on March 11, after a short visit last year from May 27 - August 13. This is part of a long-lasting shift that can loosen your hold on the material world while increasing the relative importance of your spiritual growth.
You will encounter many changes in several areas of your life throughout 2011. During the past decade, visionary Neptune has been encouraging you to dream about your place in the world as it moved through Aquarius and your 10th House of Career. On April 4, it dips its toes into its home sign of compassionate Pisces in your 11th House of Social Networking. You now begin to understand the benefits of global thinking and become less attached to your worldly aspirations. Learning new ways to share meaningful and magical experiences with your friends can help you discover your role within groups. But you'll also need to work hard to keep your fantasies separate from the real world, or you'll miss the best part of this transit. You're given the gift of a new vision of the future; use this as a source of inspiration when Neptune settles back into your materialistic 10th house on August 4 until it reenters Pisces on February 3, 2012.
