Mary's Astrology Blog for January 2011

Happy New Year to All of You

It certainly is a time of intense changes and challenges. Not to mention flu which is going around and the reason why this column is a little late. So many of you seem to be facing huge challenges in your life so I have included a prayer which I hope you will find helpful.

New Year is a time for change and lightheartedness so I have also included a formula for you to check out your number for this year. By using this then you will be able to see what vibration the year will hold for you. Whatever number comes up for you then it’s up to you to use the energy of the year to assist in the evolvement of your soul.


In this moment I stop and take a deep breath and feel my connection to the energy of Diving Creation

I am One with that energy and as I take in the breath I let a sense of well being fill my body.

I AM this energy of Light and I can trust it to bring me all that I need

I AM this energy of Light and I can trust it to know what I most need for my highest good and my greatest happiness

I AM this energy of Light, pure love, in every organ and cell of my body

I take a breath and let that Love in

I AM one with the energy of Divine creation and eagerly look forward to the new beginnings that await me

I trust Divine evolution, I release the past

I eagerly anticipate what is to come and I rejoice in the wonder of this moment


Numerology, which is a sister science to astrology, sees the world in terms of mathematical vibration. The year 2011 is a 'four' year in numerology. It is often a year of manifestation and creativity; a year when you complete projects you've been working on for several years; when the fruits of your labors come to fruition. Numerology reduces everything to a single digit number from one to nine. For example if numbers added up to 14 the '4' and the '1' would be added together to make 5.

It is easy to check out your personal vibration for the New Year by adding the month of your birth to the day of your birth and adding it all to 4 for 2011. For example someone born on April 15 would add 4 + 15 + 4 = 14 which gets reduced to 5 by adding the 1 and 4 together. September 4 would be 9 + 4 + 4=17 or 8. Here are some key words for your individual years

1= new beginnings, fresh starts

2 = help from partners, marriage,

3 = creativity and self expression

4 = manifestation of creativity

5 = a year of changes

6 = service and family

7 = meditation, specialization

8 = finance and things of value

9 = endings and letting go of things which no longer work

ARIES: It is a time of destiny; time when you are ending old karma, which goes back lifetimes. Ask yourself what you have learned in the last two years. It is a time to look at what is going on now and ask yourself if you are slipping back to repeat old patterns. It is also a time of freedom and transformation. The energy of the Universe supports your evolvement. New people will enter your life and many of them will prove to be helpful to you in one way or the other. If you follow your heart and stay true to what you believe spiritually and ethically, you will find yourself reaping success and prosperity. If you do what you love, you will become well known for doing it well.

TAURUS: This is a time of balance for you. There will be a lot of activity around your partner or around family members, whether siblings or in-laws, everyone seems to need your nurturing ways. The lesson is of course to look after yourself. It may be a time of serious considerations and that makes it all the more important for you to be well balanced when action is called for. If you have wanted to make some choices around career; you may find yourself too distracted by other things to really give it serious thought. Trust the Universal timing. There is a force within your heart which will lead you through these times and the more in balance you are, the more you will be able to stay in tune with it.

GEMINI: Whether it is your lover or your best friend, good things come to you this month through your partner. Your partner will bring you energy and drive. Your partner will help you understand what you really value in life. Your partner will be the catalyst that stimulates your intellect and your creativity. Great transformation is possible at this time through your association with someone close to you. This may also be a time of love and romance, but the true gifts of this month are more transformational than even love. Great success will come to you through going back to fundamentals if you encounter roadblocks go back to the basics.

CANCER: You have nearly completed a two-year cycle. Now is the time to take a moment and look back and ask yourself where you have felt most restricted and you will find that these are also the areas of your greatest growth. What did you learn? What you learned will set the pattern for the next fourteen years. You will have a tendency to look at finances in a critical or even fearful light. Just know that most of your fear is in your imagination. Travel will figure well in this month. You may also find you have more interaction with siblings. If you are a writer this is a time of fertile ideas and the ability to get a lot of things down in a way that pleases you.

LEO: This is a month when you may find yourself confined to home and not getting out much into the world. When you get out at all you will find that there is a purpose and each experience may be widely different from the last. Most of your work will be within this month. You could be dealing with health issues, either yours or someone close to you, especially having to do with the bones. It would be good to keep a notebook or a journal. You will have lots of creative ideas flow through you at this time, although you may not be able to put them into action until later. Just because nothing may seem to be happening, don’t be discouraged. Your germinating seed will burst into bloom by spring.

VIRGO: You could find your dreams manifesting this month, as long cherished desires come forth and find outer form. Your intuition is nearly mystical, so it is important that you pay close attention to where your heart leads you and to maintain your own presence, even in groups or organizations. This is a time of great sensitivity, but it may also allow you to find those areas in your life where people can still push your buttons and you could find those emotions that you try so hard to keep a lid on, rising up and demanding recognition. Remember, there is power in knowing your vulnerable spots, because they have a lot to teach you about yourself.

LIBRA: This is a time of great expansion for you. Others will see you as someone with great authority and experience and they will tend to listen to what you have to say. The emphasis this month is on travel and communication. You may find yourself saying things that almost come through you and not from you. You are able to access your inner wisdom when you speak or write and who you are and what you value will be communicated, as well as the ideas that you speak of. This is an excellent time to write, because your writing will carry the extra weight of authority. Changes can happen quickly around you and they will lead you to your hearts desire.

SCORPIO: You could feel restricted from learning all you need to know on a subject or from traveling, especially for long distances. Try to be patient, because you are building a foundation, which will manifest around your career next month. This is the time to go back to basics and review not only your direction, but how you plan to get there. Special care will be given to financial matters this month and you could find long term plans paying off for you. All your ideas could make money for you, so it will be important to pay attention to your fertile imagination and to only travel those paths, which support your basic values. You could find yourself feeling very at home in unusual places.

SAGITTARIUS: You will feel both restless and energized as many of the planets move into your sign for the beginning of the year. Love can hit you out of the blue and you may find yourself opening up to a partner and sharing feelings from your heart. It is time to keep the focus on you, however; don’t lose yourself in the fascination with someone else. January is ripe with opportunity and some of it is life-changing. You have never been afraid of adventure and now is the time to give your freedom loving nature full reign. Old ideas and projects will return with new slants to them and this time you will find success.

CAPRICORN: The connection between past and present becomes very clear to you this month and you may find yourself going back and making peace with relationships that you have let go of in the past. You have a habit of avoiding deeply personal emotions that are associated with your past, especially if they are painful, but you will not be able to ignore the effects they have, especially if they are preventing you from finding happiness in the present. You are a great fan of tradition, but in the case of your spirituality, you may find yourself rejecting tradition and replacing it with what you feel in your heart. Your intuition will guide you well this month.

AQUARIUS: You will wear your individuality proudly this month and others will feel in harmony with you on an emotional level. Things tend to happen on the spur of the moment and you have great opportunity to express yourself creatively and spiritually. Even if your life’s ambition is something easy like changing the world, you could find yourself on the way to fulfilling it by moving others to take up your cause. If there is any area of your life that you need to be persuasive about, now is the time to speak your heart. An old love may reappear from the past and desire to resume a romance that you had thought was long gone. Explore all aspects of this before you leap there may be hidden meanings.

PISCES: January could see you cleaning up old business, especially if it is legal or official in any way. You are closing down old cycles and preparing for the new and you will find your sensitive heart expressing its desires to a close partner or friend. The world smiles kindly on you at this time and you will find yourself coming out of the chrysalis and dancing through life once more. How you will make your mark in the world will move from theory to practical application as you make great strides in career. Try not to dwell too much in the past. It will be more difficult for you to incorporate the wonderful new changes you are making if you keep looking back to old mistakes.

I hope that this has been uplifting and helpful to you as it comes from me with much love and encouragement. If you have any comments on this or anything else then please leave a comment by going to –
