You are capable of initiating things on your own and following through. Focus on your own unique individuality and value your abilities, whatever they may be. Develop and pursue talents and ideas that may have been lying suppressed for many years. This is a time meant for reviving those dreams lost when they seemed, at the time, too selfish to pursue. You can now accomplish projects abandoned in deference to others, but you must be assertive and ambitious in your desire for fulfillment.
While Mars is in the 12th house of Solar Return, you have the ability to work independently or behind the scenes. This is a great time to focus on projects which require some degree of "alone-ness." You must provide your own sense of direction and motivation while working to-ward achievement, but what you ultimately accomplish can be very original and unique. Yearlong projects are associated with this placement since many people will not know what you are working on or have accomplished until late in the solar return year. The tendency with this placement is to prevent the left hand from knowing what the right hand is doing. It is even less likely that others will know what you are doing. This is your time to work in secret or "go undercover." Suppose you wish to surprise your spouse or parents with some secret home-made project you assembled in the basement; now is the time.
TRANSITING MARS IN THE ELEVENTH HOUSE
- Traditional name: House of Friendship
- Terrain: groups, societies, and networks; friends, money from career, investment, broadcasting, hopes and wishes, helpful people
- Shares common ground with: the sign of Aquarius; the planets Saturn, Uranus, and Jupiter (traditional astrologers place Jupiter in its “joy” in the eleventh house)
Transiting Mars in 11th house is devoted to making you fight for what is yours, and this can be an awkward element to introduce into your eleventh house relationships. Ideally, groups cooperate to achieve shared goals.
In a perfect world, friends are always mutually supportive. But of course, we don’t live in a perfect, ideal world, and sometimes these relationships grow stale or are proven false. Mars transiting the eleventh house can bring conflict with friends and associates, but it also clears the air and lets everyone know where they stand.
Mars can indicate leadership opportunities, so you may find yourself involved in group activities or serving on a committee—even if that’s not normally your style. The eleventh house is also associated with the future, so this can be an excellent transit for initiating a long-term project that requires courage and motivation.
