Happy New Year Aries. It’s January 2015 and to start the year off I thought rather than going through the usual chronological aspects and transits we’d focus on what I think for you is going to be very important this year and the theme for you this month and for the year is friendship and understanding what that really means. I usually tell people you can genuinely count the true friends on one finger, well maybe one hand, but leaving aside the usual concept of friends let’s talk about the number one best friend you can make, and that is yourself.
So the position of your ruling planet in the eleventh sector, the zone of friendship as 2015 commences has a lot to do with friendship, it’s got everything to do also with fulfilling your personal desires and in particular those desires which are associated with friends, close associates, even siblings. They are close associates and friends perhaps even more so than the usual social group of people that you know we refer to as friends.
What’s happening now for you though Aries is the very difficult right angled aspect to Saturn showing the need to truly re-evaluate the meaning of friendship, the give and take of relationships and the investment of time, energy, love, even money that sometimes goes into this concept of friendship. This won’t be easy because you know attrition means getting rid of things. This may also precipitate some pretty intense relationship struggles.
Mars usually does well in the eleventh sector as we see for you in January 2015 but it still has its inherent argumentativeness, its obstructive sort of energy as well and here we see it in the sign of Aquarius which means you know the ideologies of yourself and your friends may be changing this year. So it’s important to learn that art of give and take and understand that if you want to maintain certain friendships that depend on how difficult it’s going to be to nourish that person, to keep them in what we call the inner circle of trust.
On another note, sometimes what happens ( and this could for some of you as the year starts ) is that there’s a sudden rush of understanding that takes over. You know, the great masters say between two breaths, between the two blinks of an eye, there’s a moment where you tend to experience sort of a zone, and I’ll put that in inverted commas, a space within yourself. Maybe you’ve experienced that. I just had it then when I was thinking about what it was I was thinking about and now I can’t even remember what I was thinking about!! That’s how intensely lost I was in that moment writing this. Allow yourself to enjoy moments of being lost in yourself in 2015. You don’t have to actually do anything but rather just BE! It takes practice but can be very satisfying.
Attritionor the shedding of certain things in life is essential for your personal growth as well in 2015. This year that’s a very important element. There’s your past karma point in your Sun sign. There’s your future karma point in your relationship sector. We have Saturn having just moved into the ninth sector which is really the house of spiritual ideals, teachers, education, law, philosophy, long distance journeys, and cultural exchanges. It’s a very important sector relating to your past karma. So coupled with this very powerful Mars in the eleventh house of friendships, a lot of your past is coming up . You will definitely have a chance to reevaluate a lot of what’s going on in those areas of your life.
I want you to focus on your friendships, I want you to reevaluate that and as I started saying, leaving aside friends of a social nature you yourself are your best friend or your worst enemy. One of my teachers once told me that, in fact he referred to one’s own mind as either being one’s best friend or one’s worst enemy.
So I leave you this month with that thought as the foundation of not just greater understanding in your relationships in 2015 but a greater relationship and an understanding of yourself. Once you get that right everything else will flow, trust me and I hope to see you here next month. We will get into the career aspect of what’s going on in February and in the meantime do look at the detailed analysis for January which follows.
Jan 3, 2015 (Jan 2, 2015 to Jan 27, 2015) Ven 11th H.
TRANSITING VENUS IN THE ELEVENTH HOUSE--Venus transiting in the houses influences how you express yourself socially, artistically, and romantically in the various areas of your life. In the eleventh house, it indicates warm friendships and relationships established through group activities. Kindness gets kindness in return. You will have many friends of the opposite sex. Friends often become romantic partners and romantic partners often become good friends. Strong alliances with musicians and other artists are strongly indicated now.
Jan 5, 2015 (Jan 4, 2015 to Mar 13, 2015) Merc 11th H.
TRANSITING MERCURY IN THE ELEVENTH HOUSE--Transiting Mercury in the houses deals with the practical affairs that occupy your mind and shows what areas of activity will be influenced by your thoughts and communications. In the eleventh house the focus is on communications and the exchange of ideas with friends and groups. You will seek out associations which will stimulate your mind, and you will both teach your friends and learn from them. You are open to all humanity, and are likely to have much compassion and insight into the larger social issues. You love truth, impartiality, and the ability to think with originality and objectivity. You need to take care that your ideas do not become eccentric or impractical during this transit.
Jan 10, 2015 (Jan 9, 2015 to Jan 11, 2015) Sun Sqr Sun
TRANSITING SUN SQUARE NATAL SUN--This transit occurs roughly three months after and three months before your birthday. At both times it is a transit of crisis and challenge. Square aspects create challenges to be overcome, and usually will provide insight for how to conquer setbacks. It is not a time to fear, but it is a time for testing the validity of what you are doing. People may oppose you in your efforts and you could get very angry with them, but you need to understand that their motives are the same as yours. In the square before your birthday, you will be challenged to complete various projects and reap their rewards--or other consequences. This after birthday square could bring challenges to
your efforts to build something up, to create a material structure, or just to get a project going. There could also be a testing of some new aspect of the personality which is trying to get out into the light of the world. Study the situations of your life, and use this energy to make amends where necessary and start new beginnings.
Jan 12, 2015 (Jan 11, 2015 to Jan 13, 2015) Mars Sxtil MC
TRANSITING MARS SEXTILE THE NATAL MIDHEAVEN--This is a positive transit for self-confidence and courage. You can pursue your objectives with assurance and wit, and it brings a high energy level. You want to get things done quickly, so you need to watch out for impulsiveness. It is a good transit for working in cooperation with others, provided their energy is also good. Otherwise you will be impatient with them. You can be assertive, but rather mellow with it, so you can usually get your way without offending others. It is a good transit for getting things done in a joint effort with others.
Jan 12, 2015 (Jan 11, 2015 to Feb 20, 2015) Mars 12th H.
TRANSITING MARS IN THE TWELFTH HOUSE--Mars transiting the houses influences the departments of life in which you express your actions and desires. It shows where you need to exert energy and initiative in order to produce results. In the twelfth house, it arouses desires and actions that are strongly influenced by the unconscious mind. You may wish to carry on work and other activities in secret or in seclusion. You tend to be secretive about your desires and purposes, and may have secret sexual involvements, since Mars rules sexual energies. You need to practice communications with your subconscious and open these secret influences to the light of your conscious mind and understanding. Spiritual guidance is indicated.
Jan 18, 2015 (Jan 9, 2015 to Jan 26, 2015) Jup Trine Sun
TRANSITING JUPITER TRINE NATAL SUN--The ancient astrologers called this a lucky transit. Actually, it gives you a positive frame of mind which is at the root of most successes. It is a good time to reflect on your life and review your goals. You are able to visualize the big picture, and can begin working toward your ideals, which are likely to be high under this transit. You can work harmoniously with others at this time, but you will be more inclined to sit back, enjoy it and do nothing. A good time for financial matters, but also, for inner growth. Travel could be indicated.
Jan 19, 2015 (Jan 18, 2015 to Jan 20, 2015) Ven Sxtil Sun
TRANSITING VENUS SEXTILE NATAL SUN--Sextiles are supportive, and this one is a pleasant one. People will be good to you under this transit, and you will enjoy group activities and being with friends. It is a good time for working with others, especially those in authority, and opportunities for advancement could result. This is an extremely good transit for any kind of an interview where you need to make a good impression. It is a good time to ask for favors of any kind. You will also be interested in all things artistic.
Jan 20, 2015 (Jan 19, 2015 to Feb 18, 2015) Sun 11th H.
TRANSITING SUN IN THE ELEVENTH 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 eleventh house it will focus your interest in friendships and group activities. You are also likely to become interested in occult subjects, scientific endeavors, and technological advances. You will have many friends by whom you are held in high esteem. You have a strong sense of the brotherhood of mankind with strong humanitarian feelings. You like to see things in terms of universal laws that apply impartially to all. With your nature toward group leadership, however, you need to beware of any tendency to dominate others for selfish purposes--or tendency to let others dominate you for the same reasons.
Jan 27, 2015 (Jan 26, 2015 to Jan 28, 2015) Ven Sxtil MC

It is a good time for understanding those who are close to you. You will have a tendency to give more than to receive, and to understand more than you need to. It is also a good time to express artistic creativity, and to appreciate the arts.
Jan 27, 2015 (Jan 26, 2015 to Feb 20, 2015) Ven 12th H.
TRANSITING VENUS IN THE TWELFTH HOUSE--Venus transiting in the houses influences how you may express yourself socially, romantically, and artistically in the various areas of your life. In the twelfth house it brings a love of quiet and solitude. You can be secretive about social contacts and romance--and may even have secret love affairs. Your feelings are sensitive and finely tuned to the feelings of others, giving you much compassion--but also allowing you to be easily hurt. Much of your personal behavior will be motivated from an unconscious level. You will have a deep emotional and artistic attunement to the unconscious mind during this transit, which can bring you some intense artistic inspiration.
