Happy New Year! Another one behind us and the new year is full of possibility and hope. I’ve spent the past ten years with work being my number one priority but think this year I may be ready to change that a bit. It will still always be in the “Top 3” because I don’t really know how to do anything half way, everything I involve myself in is sort of all or nothing but I think I am finally getting tired of being single and just may set out about changing that. Sort of a scary thought at this point in my life, I am pretty used to doing as I please when I please and never being accountable to any one else for it. Not to mention the only time in my life I went for the whole committed relationship thing it was the absolute worst of experiences. But we learn from these things right?, and I have always tried to confront that which I am most afraid of so here’s to courage, bravery and the adventure of the unknown.
The most positive and exciting thing for me will be getting back to living my life unfettered by the dreaded anxiety attacks. I think I have finally got them beat. For a while there even the sight of the smallest snowflake would set them off and I made it through a full on blizzard without having one. Trust me it’s a major accomplishment and feels absolutely awesome! Those stupid things can turn your whole world upside down and even at my worst I knew I was lucky because I was never as ruled by them as some other poor people I have seen go through it. I know I could have probably resolved the whole thing quite some time ago had I opted to take pills for it but that’s just not the route for me. I needed to know I could beat them, totally on my own and in doing so I can be confident that they won’t be coming back.
So last year I posted my 2010 Yearly Horoscope and decided I would review it periodically throughout the year to test the validity of such a thing. That post can be found here http://www.kerrianne.com/2010/01/01/happy-new-year/ . Now it’s time for the new post with this year’s horoscope to see what the new year will bring.
Cancer Outlook for 2011
Cancer The Carb
Year 2011 Overview
Just when you thought that life couldn’t possibly throw any more twists or turns along life’s once tedious path, along comes the unpredictable but exhilarating energy of 2011 (operative word being ‘exhilarating’). Partnerships continue to confront you with your deepest needs and fears but your career shows incredible promise and renewal. You receive the lucky touch of Jupiter from January to June. Expect major expansion and recognition on all fronts.
Promotions, opportunities to expand your social world and work-related travel are all potential gifts when the wheel of fortune spins in your favor for the first half of the year. The second half of 2011 brings a spectacular slew of new friends, alliances and networking opportunities when Jupiter moves into your house of dreams, goals and community. Venus showers you with extra doses of love and cash for the month of July, just in time for your birthday. And Mars brings the action, energy and work in August and early September.
Get ready to jet set this spring and/or summer when the planet of glamour enters your long-distance travel sector this April. Your homebody instincts give way to the lure of travel and adventure in 2011. Fall and winter bring the return of dreamy Neptune to your sector of transformation for one last jaunt between August and 2012.

The South Node quickly finishes the run in Cancer by early January, calling up choices you’ve made in the past and asking you to learn from any mistakes that weakened your personal integrity. You’re learning to trust your gut when it comes to love and relationships rather than seeing what you want to see. You’re also getting in touch with just how sensitive you are and how important it is not take on other people’s emotional baggage.
The planetary heavyweight, Saturn ruling karmic lessons continues his transit through the relationship sign of Libra (consequently at the very core of your horoscope.) Lessons that began in 2010 in the love department get put to the test and require you to go even deeper. You’re getting the courage to cut the umbilical cords that have only served to choke your growth. Comfort and security are one thing, but if you’re wasting your time, you’re wasting your time, Cancer. You can no longer get away with rationalizing your feelings. The truth is in your belly.
Pluto, the lord of the underworld and deep, one-way transformation continues to reveal any repressed issues and power struggles in significant relationships. Consider that you’re only in the early stages of a heavy long-term process of self-discovery and shedding skin. Letting go has never been more essential to your overall wellbeing. Relationships take on a heavier vibe and ask you to commit thereby eliminating any residual fluff. Those relationships that no longer serve you will fall away, ready or not. And there is no going back under Pluto’s inevitable one-way metamorphosis.
I’ll be back in 2012 to check this out and post on the past!
Cancer The Crab
Happy New Year!!!!!
So it occurred to me that if I do this correctly I can perform a little experiment. Every year so many people, including myself read their horoscope for the upcoming year and it’s filled with love, wealth, and excitement. How many people actually ever refer back to it to see how right/wrong it was? So I am going to post mine here and follow it along for the next year. (I hope. I’ve not been very consistent with keeping this blog up-to-date.) Drumroll please…
Year 2010 Overview
One thing that all Crabs (astrological Cancers or the seafood type of crab) know deep in their hearts is that someone, somewhere out there knows how great it would be to bust them wide open and eat them with melted butter. The big news for you this year, Cancer, is that Pluto has moved into your Seventh House, which rules marriage, partnerships and close relationships. This means that someone may very well be cracking your heart open in the next year. Update… Nope not unless you count my new found obsession with Peter Steele.
Cancer has a bit of a reputation for enjoying doom and gloom. You don’t. You just seem to get more than your fair share of it. It must be that thick shell of yours. Everyone assumes you can just take it.
The good news is that you earned that reputation because you can take it, and more. And often, your greatest moments come when you have overcome the greatest obstacles. Thankfully, the roadblocks you face in 2010 won’t be that devastating, but they’ll certainly give you an opportunity to shine. New support and new energy will be entering your life from unexpected and overlooked people and things, and you’ll be able to soar above it all! Update …. Well this is sort of true. I definitely had some work related set backs but as it turned out got through it and it brought about the opportunity to work with some amazing people whose contributions exceeded even the original expectations!
Year 2010 Career
As far as your work life goes, 2010 divides up into two nice, clearly defined chunks: the first half of the year is going to present struggles, and the second half will see a boatload of new opportunities. January and February will be a lot of work — literally and figuratively — almost as if everyone ignored their jobs during the run up to Christmas, and then decided to drop everything on your desk. Although your relationships with co-workers may be strained at this time, it isn’t anything you can’t handle. Be careful not to drag too much of that work stress home with you to a partner, particularly in January. Rather than dwell on it, do your best to find a way to take that experience and use it to your benefit. Update… very true.
June and July will bring some exciting opportunities for advancement. You’ll be getting more recognition for your efforts, and the possibility of a raise is in store. If you don’t have a regularly scheduled salary review planned for that time, things may be going well enough that you might want to bring the subject up anyway. Even the seed of that notion planted then can take root later. March to May will urge you to really do something about your actual cash-on-hand situation. You’ll have both an increased drive to increase your security, and (paradoxically) the urge to overspend. Try to avoid “emotional overspending” during that time, and the rest of the year should work out for you. Update … well this is always true. I always make sure to have cash on hand and I am ever so good at spending it..lol!
Year 2010 Romantic
After a year in which you felt that you weren’t being heard — whether by a spouse, or your calls for an adequate mate went unanswered — things will be shaking loose in dramatic manner in 2010. Two eclipses this year will have a particular effect on your relationship with a partner. In January, an eclipse in your Partnership House will bring issues to the forefront. If you have an existing relationship, tensions that have been building will become unavoidable; and if you aren’t, you may suddenly find yourself more dissatisfied with that situation (or a new partner may suddenly come into your life). In either case, the more dramatic of the effects may be short-lived but will give you the opportunity to make some long-needed changes.
Pluto also continues its long journey though this department of your life, and Pluto demands change and transformation. Although this doesn’t necessarily mean bad news, it will certainly require that you address any issues between you and your partner, and — maybe more importantly — that you question within yourself what a committed relationship really means to you. Is it possible you’re in the right relationship for the wrong reason? Could you be in the wrong relationship for the right reason? Inner work can be difficult, especially when it involves another person, but ultimately it’s always worth doing in the long run.
As far as romance in general goes, however, it’s more a good year than a bad one. May and June in particular will see new romantic opportunities coming your way, and will pump new life into a current relationship. Update…. nope nope nope nope. Boring and uneventful was the romance department in my life for 2010.
This should be interesting.
