+First you have to get column1 and column2 in your data.
+Then pivot by the month column which will group on the column names
(this requires hardcoded column names for JAN, FEB, MAR, ...)

SELECT 'Column1' AS Columns, [month], column1 AS [value]
SELECT 'Column2', [month], column2
SELECT columns,[jan],[feb],[mar]
PIVOT (SUM([value]) FOR [month] IN ([jan],[feb],[mar])) p
