Welcome again Scorpio. It’s a new year, 2015.
Some of you that have read my previous monthly readings note that I usually do a chronological breakdown of the transits. I want to try something a little different this year. I know you have a desire to develop, to deepen your insight, your awareness, your psychic skills, particularly if you’re a Scorpio. I’ve met many of you. I’m one myself so I understand just how your mind works, how you want to get beneath the surface. And that you can do in 2015 but it’s a question of freeing your mind from certain habitual activities.
I’m talking about the immediate transit of Saturn into your finance sector. Saturn has just decided for the first time in twenty nine and a half years, to move into that part of the zodiac that relates to the things of Scorpio. Things. We all have to have things. We all have to make sure that our things have a label on them. We don’t care whether they last, as long as they have the label on them. If they cost a little bit more then they must be good!
We know that’s all BS and I digress a little bit because this theme of Saturn really is not the traditional meaning of Saturn in the second house of the horoscope and has to do with a constriction of supply, a limitation in terms of earning capacity. But I don’t want to look at it like that. My intuition tells me that that is a very limited view of how this planet is going to affect us. I say us because as I said I’m a Scorpio too.
What and how I see this planet working is very much about what you’ve placed your value in. There’s a lot of you that have secretly wanted to do something in your life but because you had the responsibilities of family, children, mortgage, whatever, you know, your debts - that’s a generic state of being for most people in this modern world and debt is part of life. What I’m talking about is indebtedness to slavery. I’m not talking about indebtedness to the bank. That you can pay off, but if you develop indebtedness to the slavery of your own mind, the slavery of your own habits to having the famous label, then of course that’s not a comfortable space to be in is it? It feels nice when people comment on your label but at the end of the day its slavery. Being a slave seems to me to be quite the opposite of what spiritual emancipation, self actualization, self empowerment, is all about, right? A slave versus a master. So that’s more what I’m alluding to here. It’s a bit of a subtle concept to grasp but you know the Scorpio mind’s pretty subtle too. I know you’re getting it.
How do we break out of that pattern? That’s the difficult one, it’s not easy. Some of you may need to continue doing what you’re doing. It even feels like you’re selling your soul to the devil at the time. Why am I doing this? Why do these widgets exist? Do I have to do this for another four hundred hours? You know. I’ve been there. I did that when I, I worked in a factory when I was a kid - making widgets. Milky fluids used to pour out onto the widget in the making to stop the friction and would turn my fingers into prunes at the end of the day.
So I earned money like that as well. Slowly you start to surrender that, you sacrifice that. The sacrifice you make to create that space to live an ideal which is freedom from slavery and it does cost, it costs in terms of the amount of tension, the amount of energy and the amount of time that I am going to give to that thing which I hate doing. But it makes me so much money. Got it?
It’s hard to do, it’s you know, again it reminds me of my daughter holding onto her favorite toy. “Come on baby, time for bed” I say. “Oh no, no, no I don’t want to let go Daddy”. You hold onto your habit more tightly the moment you think you’re going to lose it. So think along these lines of surrendering what it is that you don’t really want to do, even though it has some material value, it’s had a historic value of providing you with this, that or the other, nonetheless it is a habitual ball and chain which has created slavery in you.
So this year the challenge is there for you. The scarcity that I talk about is a voluntary scarcity. I’ve seen it before. You’ve seen it in practical terms. Oh Dadhichi, I’m going to take this job, it’s twenty thousand dollars a year less but boy I love the job. And my answer to that is what are you waiting for? You see where I’m coming from. So I’d like you to think about.
We’re going to pursue a whole lot of other themes in 2015. I want these themes to be practical. Obviously this is a very deeply psychological and spiritually activating exercise. It sometimes is not tangible in terms of holding or seeing what’s going on other than relating it to that circumstance we talked about that is definitely what you do not want to be doing.
In the meantime you must love what you do to roll into doing what you love. That is a law of the universe. As much as you hate what you’re doing, love it, at least love it for the time being, that’s the exercise, that’s the challenge. Loving what you do yields doing what you love. That’s the equation.

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE NATAL SUN--Basically, this aspect is a test of your discipline and self-restraint. It can provide a chance for real growth and expanded opportunities, but you have to know precisely where you are and what your real needs are in order to take advantage of it. There can be a feeling that luck will provide all you need, and/or there could be tremendous ego inflation and excessive pride.

You can accomplish just about anything you want to under this transit, but you must know where and when to stop.
