Welcome to 2015 Aquarius. It is January and this year I had the idea to maybe change things a little by working more in a thematic manner looking at those core issues that are going to determine what’s going to happen throughout 2015 and maybe even beyond.
A very, very significant transit just occurred. One of your ruling planets Saturn has moved to the 11th house. I mean, if you had absolutely anything you wanted, if you woke up tomorrow morning and your bank account was loaded with millions and millions of dollars, you had servants to do everything you wanted, the question is: what would you do?
Saturn in the 11th sector indicates fulfillment of one’s plans, fulfillment of one’s desires. The attainment of the objective, that’s a problem though. Where is the meaning of the objective when it has been reached? That probably sounds like a ridiculously funny statement to you….but of course we all want to achieve what we set out to do. I understand that. I’m talking from the experience of hundreds of very, very successful people across the globe so it’s not isolated in pockets. It seems to be a universal issue that the most successful, wealthy people that I have encountered and worked with, generally seem to be the most miserable. I always figured that if, you know, I see a pile of money this high and another pile of money this high then that person there must be half as happy as this one here. This one here must definitely be twice as happy, right? He’s got twice as much money. Well, you know that that is not the case.
So what do you do when all of this desire is fulfilled? Where do you go from here? Now, I am not saying all of your desires will be fulfilled this year but there is a pretty good chance over the next couple of years that this transit which hasn’t happened for 30 years for you, some of you weren’t even here at that time, you were wandering around in your last incarnation somewhere in India or Timbuctoo, or wherever it is you existed in your last life.
So, the issue is still, some of those desires may be attained. Remember that feeling? I remember I used to die for Christmas, Christmas Eve, open those gifts. I was so excited with the new bike for 3 days. Then it was like, errr, what else can I get now? You know the gloss wears off. It seems like the desire is fulfilled for a moment but there is always that sort of…..you cut one head of the medusa and another one mysteriously grows back, this desire thing is like this medusa that is all encompassing. How do we cut at that thing that maybe causes all of that desire?
You know, a great teacher of mine once said to me, “Get rid of what you haven’t got”. I used to sit there and think, it was like one of those Japanese cones. Get rid of what you haven’t got and I thought about that for a while. How can I get rid of something I haven’t yet got? Oh, I see, you mean the desire for that? The desiring of what I haven’t got is what creates that sense of stress or unfulfillment or that uneasiness; that craving that is incessantly there, scratching away at my insides.
So the master says, “Get rid of what you haven’t got”. ie you cut at the root of the desire itself. But wait you say, we all need to desire? We need to have objectives and goals. Yes, I am not saying that that’s not a fact but the preoccupation with the desire, the preoccupation with the objective in mind is what steals our peace of mind and our happiness.
Be careful with your ruling planet, fulfilling you in all of these other areas. By all means, fulfill those desires but be very, very careful that you are not feeding this Medusa, this habit. It is like being a drug addict, isn’t it? Now I have filled that desire, now I need another hit! Now I need another hit! A bigger hit!
Try existing in the moment, breathing in, breathing out, enjoying with gratitude what you have. It doesn’t mean you are going to surrender all of that stuff. There may be some things you will when you sit quietly in this space, in this immediate moment, you start to realize just how much you have.
So those other desires start to recede. They are still there as part of your agenda but you can relax more comfortably in this moment. Enjoy each moment of 2015 rather than lunging at the next moment and missing what’s here.
I love that saying and I’ll leave you with this thought, why do they call this moment ‘the present’? Because it is a gift!

TRANSITING SUN IN THE TWELFTH HOUSE--When the Sun transits this house of your Natal chart, it will influence the departments of life most strongly affected by the individual will and power potential. In the twelfth house, it indicates a time when your personality may become somewhat retiring. Your will may be directed inward, exploring the resources of your own subconscious. Because of this, you could be lonely and withdrawn. Psychology and psychic research are likely to interest you, and you may find your best self-expression through working in psychiatric hospitals or places established for mental or spiritual retreats. Service to others can provide you with recognition and fulfillment. You need to work to overcome shyness and possible neurotic tendencies during this time.

TRANSITING VENUS SQUARE THE NATAL MIDHEAVEN--Squares usually bring problems. This transit may bring a compulsion to be with a special person in order to express your love and affection. You could feel that you are not quite complete alone and you need someone else to help you be a whole person. This doesn't mean you are insecure, but the influences create the need to share yourself with another. Take care, however, not to blow a relationship out of proportion lest feelings of possessiveness and jealousy enter in. This is a good time to pursue your talents by participating in activities relating to beauty and the arts.

TRANSITING MERCURY SQUARE THE NATAL MIDHEAVEN--Squares produce challenges to be faced and obstacles to be overcome, and this one is no exception. Mercury, the planet of mind and communications is "squared off" against your Midheaven influences toward goals, profession, and recognition. This is a good time for re-thinking and challenging your possibilities of success before carrying out plans you have been making. Give a reality check before making decisions, and before communicating with others about important matters. Your mind will be busy about career and/or job concerns. Let others communicate with you, and listen. You need to keep your mind occupied with matters important to you during this time, and cooperation will further your cause. Seek spiritual guidance for the universal plan for your career, etc.

Jan 18, 2015 (Jan 8, 2015 to Jan 26, 2015) Jup Oppos Sun
TRANSITING JUPITER OPPOSITE NATAL SUN--If you can recognize the real meaning of this transit in terms of your own life, this can be an extremely productive and growth-oriented time, a period that will always have meaning for you. It is very expansive, and the difficulty will be in setting limits and priorities. You will be tempted to go after everything you have ever wanted in a materialistic way with little regard for others. However, material gains will leave you empty when the transit is over. True expansiveness should be within, and this transit represents a turning point from the material to the spiritual, from the outward to the inward person. You must look for the solutions within yourself, but it could be easier if you can work with another person and think in terms of mutual growth.

Avoid fixating on past experiences not relevant to the present lest it lead to neurotic tendencies.

You are driven by self-interest, with emphasis on professional and personal goals, some of which may not be in harmony with the interests of others. The transit could indicate conflict with others, who may see you as selfish and uncaring. You may not feel like working with others, but you must be careful and not work against them. Much can be accomplished, but don't forget others have goals and feelings, too.
Feb 19, 2015 (Jan 17, 2015 to June 16, 2015) Plu 12th H.
TRANSITING PLUTO IN THE TWELFTH HOUSE--This transit of Pluto brings up aspects of yourself that are deeply buried in your psyche and forces you to confront them. It exposes those things in our lives that we do not approve of, and have failed to face up to and deal with in the past. They are revealed to the point where they can no longer be ignored. These are aspects of yourself that you may have been taught in your childhood to believe are "bad". The transit may force you to recall and "re-live" events of your childhood that are affecting you now. In severe instances this could indicate the help of a therapist. Be willing to do whatever is necessary to implement these changes in your attitudes about yourself. You may be sure that the hidden side of your nature will be activated during this transit, and that you will need to understand it and control it. This also may include external events and elements in your life that you have not faced in the past--relationships that have failed, behavior that you are ashamed of, alienation of others, etc. Now is the time to clear them away, for circumstances are likely to occur that makes you experience the consequences of these behaviors and false beliefs. Only by facing them honestly and without guilt can you clear them away and prevent any further influences over you. That is the task for this period of your life, and it provides the opportunity for regeneration of your life to make it work better. This is a very long transit, and you will experience it only once in your lifetime.
