What are the markings of rough relationships with friends, e.g. transits/progressions/solar return chart?
– From Sweden
This is complex question because “rough” can mean almost anything. So can, “friends”.
Traditionally speaking, friends are associated with the 11th house. If Mars is transiting your 11th house, you may fight with your friends. A Pluto transit can wipe you out on the “friend” front.
Your friends may be a burden with Saturn transiting the 11th, or you may have some responsibility towards them. You may lack friends… and need to do something about it!
As for your Solar Return or Progressed chart, these same associations would apply but I don’t think covers all the potential reasons for strife with friends.
Specifically, we all play out our various psychodramas. It’s very common a “friend” is used as a stand-in or substitute for some family member that’s got you twisted up. This would be similar to projecting onto a therapist.
In a case like this, a friend is used and sometimes even sacrificed for your pathology. The 11th house may not be part of the scenario.
Anyone else have ideas?
