Happy New Year, Cancer! The first big bang of 2011 comes in the form of a solar eclipse in Capricorn. The sun is also in Capricorn until the 20th. So let’s look at the significance of this energy.
For the past year and a half (since July 2009), there have been a series of eclipses in your sign and in Capricorn. The eclipses in your sign relate to your self-image, the mental image of yourself and the physical image you project to others. You may have made adjustments to your hairstyle, clothing, or weight as well as to your thinking about yourself. The final eclipse in your sign occurs on July 1, 2011. At that point, you will be done with the cycle of updating your image.
The Capricorn side of this eclipse series relates to relationship, to allowing others to see you in a new way that draws them to you or moves them out of the picture if they are no longer compatible with the updated you. The eclipse in Capricorn on January 4 is supposed to hook you up or re-establish a tie with someone who is compatible with the updated you. Sometimes this means a wedding or engagement; at other times it is a more informal way of establishing the tie. So that’s big news.
The eclipse energy dominates during the first half of the month. During the second half of the month, your consciousness is scheduled to take things to the next level, to be exploring the deeper meanings of intimacy. You should be ready to move forward with the relationship, to absorb the energy of the updated or new relationship.
That by itself is enough for any one month, but Jupiter also moves into your career house on the 22nd. In March, Uranus will join him. In short, 2011 will see a lot of focus on your career. Additionally, Neptune will move into your 9th house of travel and will be strong there from April through July. This is the sort of influence that could have you taking a very long journey to a very far location. 2011 is full of new frontiers for you.
