2011 YEAR AHEAD FORECAST
BY TIM STEPHENS
We’ve witnessed world-wide change: the rise of the east,
the fall of the west. The complete transformation occurs in an arc, to 2024. But
this year it gets a January-to-June “rocket boost” – one that launches eight
years of boredom-banishing tumult. China will experience more (and surprising)
international opposition, but will continue dampening it adroitly. Its weakness
is interior, not exterior.
Small nations face economic dangers, especially those
whose names start with S, H,Y, M, O, P or L. Military excitement for A or R.
Late-year restructuring for G, N. Germany, inflation/deflation, currency fears.
France experiences deeper commotion, climaxing 2012-15: masses revolt, rulers
grim; property laws/taxes rewritten. North Korea approaches famine – oddly
enough, caused by floods? Its belligerence sparks, but isn’t nation-destroying.
The U.S. becomes a 20th century England.
Terrorists and western activists grow; attacks multiply.
If we see no notable military action in 2011, expect seven years of peace.
Technology will leap forward in lasers, cutting,
armaments, engines and explosives, Mars exploration, and humanitarian realms.
2011 starts a 15-year golden era for space, astrophysics, intuitive math, film,
nursing, psychic phenomena, spirituality and pharmacology. Same period, we’ll
discover gargantuan sources of natural gas. Oceans will return; great ships will
Love, sensuality, beauty and rich fabrics fill the leisure side. Comedy surges.
Mansions regain favour. China exports art, fashions. U.S. real estate begins to
heal by March, so pluck your bargains while you can. All forms of communication,
telephony, media expand initially, then fall. Investors, beware this after May.
Universities and international travel regain health.
We should avoid starting any new projects March 30 to
April 23, August 2 to 26 and November 24 to December 13..
- (March 21-April 19)
What a year lies ahead – one
of the luckiest, most freeing and exhilarating years of your
life! It kicks off a huge 8-year period of excitement,
expanding popularity, new friends, new life goals and
awareness. You might be nervous, so find ways to relax.
Physical exercise cures insomnia.
2011’s blast of freshness will bring intellectual,
educational, publishing, travel and love opportunities
through early June. All year, be profound, not casual. June
to December highlights financial rewards, perhaps a pay
raise. You might purchase or sell a major item such as a
Your new, buoyant cheerfulness attracts friends and the
opposite sex February to early June. (You’re very lucky
during this interval, so grab every opportunity, not just in
love.) Indecision undermines your sexual magnetism in April,
but love’s power returns late month. September to November
features a romance that might lead to marriage. All year,
serious love needs serious thought, and loyalty. You might
form a bond with someone much younger or older.
Your career and community status could undergo a startling
transformation in February/March.

- (April 20-May 20)
2011 splits in two.
January to May floats like a quiet, slow boat, restful
and contemplative. Plan, fulfill obligations,
recuperate, and be charitable.
From June onward, life leaps forward with bright luck
and freshness. You’ll be cheerful and confident,
adventurous and assertive. Major good luck imbues
finances, investments, sex, lifestyle, and research.
Plan and prepare now for international travel, higher
education, or a successful media campaign. This is a
perfect time (June onward, right into mid-2012) to
find an agent, to diagnose a troubling condition, and
to escape limitations. (The answer to an old puzzle:
Bosses and parents display temper in January/February,
but they welcome and encourage you in March. Work is
long and hard all year, so just slog through. Though
investments are blessed, earnings look slim: prepare
wisely, don’t overspend.
This year is more sexy than romantic. An intellectual
type is sweet on you January/February. A major
attraction could begin this spring or autumn. June to
December brings an intimate bounty – pregnancy is very
“available.” Be careful, gentle at home this autumn.
- (May 21-June 20)
Late January to early
June bring a big social surge. Your popularity will
rise, invitations come, flirtations pop up – don’t
hesitate, jump right in! Talk, approach, join. If you
do, eight years of social joy will begin. (Replacing
15 years of relative solitude.)
You’ll meet someone bouncy and vibrant in
January/February. This person is very adamant about
his/her convictions. If you hope for marriage, speak
up! An impulsive, energetic person befriends you in
April. This entire first half, you can be pulled
between bright, light new amour, and older, deeper
Bosses and parents display impatience in March, but
they favour you in April. Be diplomatic. Money flows
to you late summer – save it; don’t spend recklessly.
Gentleness prevents domestic friction
From July into mid-2012, be quiet, contemplative – but
not a hermit. Luck arrives, this second half, in real
estate, domesticity, gardening, spirituality,
security, government, institutional and administrative
links. Meditate, attend to health issues and
charitable obligations. A friendly link could turn
into a quiet, deep love this autumn. All year, seek
interdependence, not independence.

material the first five months, Cancer! You might
receive an advancement at work, start a new,
successful career, launch a new business or thriving
venture, or make highly beneficial contacts who will
aid your career in future. The last seven months bring
rewards for past efforts, rather than helping you
launch new projects.
Rest deeply in June – July will propel you into twelve
months of social joys, entertainment, popularity, wish
fulfillment and optimism! A light romance might begin,
but you’ll soon discover that no relationship remains
light, now to 2024. Married Cancers need to plunge new
emotional depths together. The reward: rekindled love.
A powerful attraction might arise February/March. May
brings wise, gentle and witty friends – and “career
co-operators.” Your magnetism attracts others all
summer. Deep romance could also cause deep
disagreement in October. November/December might spark
a co-worker affair. Health depends on your
relationships and mental state. Protect against
constipation, calcification and stress.
All year, avoid governmental involvements, and be
patient on the home front. Your partner might be
temporarily confined to home.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Eight years of powerful
opportunities in love and fame start now, especially
February through May. These few months kick-start true
love, significant intellectual pursuits, foreign
travel, cultural venues, higher education, religious
contacts, legal affairs and/or media appearances.
(Avoid lawsuits: this influence does not promise more
money!) You might wed this year, or meet your future
mate (likely January/February or April/May). If you
separated in 2009, divorce comes.
You’ve temporarily lost the knack of quick, easy
conversation. But before June, if you think deeply and
then speak, even if it seems awkward, you’ll open the
doors to love. Your magnetism simmers
September-December – romance and lust mingle. All
year, deep romance is better than playing the field.
From June onward, your career luck soars. You could
receive a promotion at work, wed prestigiously, or
launch a successful business.
For 15 years you’ve faced insecurity, suspicion,
others’ deception or your own illusion in
relationships. This spring and summer that huge trend
falters; the light of clarity shines; by 2012 it will
shine permanently. Emotional and love health are
- (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Seven years of
unpredictable, stressful relationships end now. For
the next fifteen years you will meet people who are
more compatible, more sympathetic to your needs and
desires (and worries).
But that doesn’t happen overnight. From January to
June and November to mid-2012 you might default to old
lust-driven patterns, or trade your love potential for
security. You’ll succeed in these – hugely! – but take
care; think deeply. That first period also brings
superb investments (especially in real estate) lucky
lifestyle changes, and beneficial business funding.
Build your financial future – but be quick!
June to November will bring truer love, one capable of
sweet marriage. If separated, you might legalize a
divorce at this time. If you’ve already met your life
love, 2011 can bring a wedding. Your sexual magnetism
soars November into July 2012. Something’s brewing!
Be careful with legal matters May/June. Bosses are
temperamental June/July. All year, gently ease up on
the ambition throttle. Don’t change careers. If you
push higher-ups, they will push back. Be conservative
when estimating your income this year and next.
- (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
January to June pour a
profusion of love chances your way – compatible,
attractive people enter your sphere, respond to your
overtures and make a few of their own. Don’t ponder
too long, as these months, and their opportunities,
pass quickly. This spring also kick-starts eight years
of intensified love. Unusual, even eccentric people
will enter, and love could be volatile. Still, romance
and marriage will walk “hand-in-hand.” The drought is
Strong attractions come in February and April/May
(perhaps to an old flame). Social venues create love
opportunities this autumn.
Relationships veer toward sexual and financial
commitment from June to mid-2012. If you already have
a lover, wed before March 5, 2011, or after July
3,2012. If you begin a lust-oriented affair June
onward, be wary of marriage.
All year, business and other opportunities will depend
on your relationship abilities – share, approach,
smile! Relocation is lucky before June. June 2011 to
June 2012 blesses your finances, investments and
lifestyle changes. Research uncovers golden nuggets.
Avoid lawsuits March 2011to mid-2012. Guard your
digestive and eliminative systems this decade.
- (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
January to June expands
your work. Upgrade computer systems or machinery, buy
tools, job-search, or improve your skills. You’ll be
rewarded! Your eagerness and performance can lead to a
promotion. Major money opportunities arise from June
2011 to June 2012.
A co-worker romance is possible this winter. June’s
flaring sexual attraction triggers a whole year of
marriage luck! If single, you’re certain to meet a
prospective mate before mid-2012. April through July
brings the first gentle wave of an ocean of true love,
due to lap at your shores now to 2025.
If you want to succeed from June onward, focus on
others – on their needs, desires, and demands. Almost
all your luck will come through others. Public
acceptance, fame, relocation, negotiation and
contracts, partnerships, mediation and love are
Take care of your health in July: get odd (burning)
symptoms checked. Avoid legal hassles
August/September. All year, steer away from large
investments, debts, occultism, depth psychology,
secrets, and “mad lust.” Instead, focus on short-term
money and earnings. Take things at face value, accept
casual, comfortable intimacy.
- (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
If you’re without love,
you won’t be for long. The first five months of 2011
shower you with creative urges, speculative luck, joys
with children – and romantic opportunities. April
stands out – perhaps due to an old flame. As lucky as
these five months are, they merely start an eight-year
period of creative and romantic excitement. Romance
will be tied to travel or humanitarian involvements.
Despite love’s increasing excitement, wait until after
August 2012 to wed. If you’re married, expect
adventure, humour and delight!
Protect your health from June to December. Your work
load will grow during this period – perhaps hugely.
Seeking employment, buying machinery, offering service
– all are lucky. Present efforts will lead to
corresponding opportunities in 2012 and 13. You can
fulfill money dreams this year and next! Your hopes
might center around someone quite a bit older or
younger, all this year and next. An important money
project is brewing with this person, but be patient.
Relationships are fiery in July. A foreign trip is
possible in October – avoid legal hassles this month.
- (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
ou’re ambitious this
year, in a conservative, careful way. You have a quiet
advantage or power; this can nudge you to become
increasingly social, or to softly withdraw from the
bustling crowd. In either case, you’re talking the
initial steps on a 15-year path that will end in huge
fulfillment – IF you conduct yourself honourably! Your
wishes have deep support.
From March to mid-2012, delegate tasks; let others be
“hands-on.” Seek government support. Be wary of big
investments in machinery or tools. Delay a new car
purchase. Pharmaceuticals, drugs, yoga, meditation or
relaxation techniques can benefit your health. Make
children more independent.
From late January to June, enhance your security: your
luck soars in real estate, domestic situations, with
children, gardening and “sales territory.” If you’re
renting, buy a home. These areas might become your
largest source of income for eight years.
In June, you begin a year of splendid romantic luck.
(The perfect love might arise May/June.) Relationships
intensify August to October – make love, not war!
Avoid a legal dilemma or illicit attraction late year.
conversations, messages, errands, short trips and
paperwork whirl around you like a snowstorm through
May. You’re busy! A lively new friendship could turn
into light romance. You’ll be extra determined – and
magnetic to the opposite sex – mid-January through
February. Don’t invest too much time in an ex this
This spring’s friendly, active note will continue for
eight years. But June brings a year-long breather,
slowing you enough to pluck luck in private arenas.
Gently retreat from the glittering party circuit June
into mid-2012. Instead, make your nest, reconsider
your plans, map your future and enjoy life’s healing
powers. This is the best time in 13 years to buy a
house, find that perfect vacation or retreat cabin, to
rejuvenate, seek therapy, heal your family, have a
baby, renovate, or lay new business foundations for
All year, friendship, social joys and light romance
are favoured; but deep, heavy infatuation, creative
projects and speculation are best avoided – especially
in July! Diplomacy reduces domestic friction May/June.
A former sweet friendship lights again in
- (Feb. 19-March 20)
2011 is the most
significant turning point of your life. It brings your
true power, talent, and personality to the fore –
forever! You’ve held something back over the last
fifteen years. Not any longer.
Be ambitious all year. This is a poor time to retreat,
to be overly domestic or to seek security. Take risks,
bet on your talents, Pisces. Dissolve restrictive
The first five months of 2011 give your bank account a
boost. Your luck soars in earnings, spending, and
selling, especially in February, March and May. (Buy
real estate before March, or defer it.) Pocket profits
while you can. Unexpected events loom in money March
onward – for eight years. You’ll earn more if you work
for large corporations, institutions, the government,
or in humanitarian or healing roles.
Your intimate life remains a bit slow. That’s
appropriate, because you’re just beginning to perceive
whom you really want. Someone sweet “hangs around” in
January. Your magnetism surges in March. Easy-going
friends fill the spring. Avoid domestic friction in
July. Passion flares in August/September and
