Your Monthly Horoscope for February 2017
 by Victoria Fugit 

As Sherlock would say “the game is afoot”. This is a game of transformation, with 2017 being a year of surprises, twists and turns, chaotic upheaval and unlimited possibilities. The first quarter of 2017 emphasizes Neptune – in the New Moon chart of January 26th, in the progressed chart for the US, in the Solar Return of the United States and in the Solar Eclipse of February 26th. Strong elements of miscommunication, deception, being untethered from reality, confusion, illusion and a general feeling of Alice down the rabbit hole will prevail.

On the other hand we will also see the higher manifestation of Neptune – idealism, creative imagination, a sense of oneness, greater spiritual awareness and guidance and passion for the greater good. This is a time for focusing our energies on the results we choose for our future and to remember that what you resist, persists.

Although the “powers that be” seemingly have the upper hand, the power of idealism, integrity and maturity focused on what is desired can tip reality in a different direction. On a personal level it will be less unsettling if you let go of judgment of present events based on experiences of the past. The future seems to be very different than would be expected based on past or even present experience. Anxiety about possible futures will only diminish the joy of the moment and possibly shorten your life span.

Jupiter in Libra (great energies of balance and working together in partnerships) in opposition to Uranus in Aries trine Saturn in Sagittarius (innovation, unexpected twists or outcomes, desire for change, pioneering technologies) and square to Pluto (power, corporations, government, wealth, domination, death, decay, regeneration, renewal) creates mind boggling advancements and opportunity in health care, technical innovations, greater understanding, appreciation and solutions to environmental problems, new paradigms in education. However, like Orpheus rescuing his love Eurydice from Hades (another name for Pluto) looking backwards has dire consequences.

Work with others to focus your energies on what you want to grow within your life, your community, your county and state
Aries Astrological Symbol
Aries – With Venus, Mars and Uranus in Aries this month all trining Saturn in Sagittarius, you have the passion, innovative concepts and stability of structure to carry out new plans for your future. By now the square of Pluto to your Sun has most likely cleaned out the old, limiting behaviors or patterns from your life and you may feel more invigorated and enthusiastic about your future than ever before.

Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus – Long dormant talents or secrets may be bubbling to the surface of your consciousness now. Accept the gift of awareness they bring and know that you have support to follow through with surprising changes and new directions they may take you. It’s best not to rely heavily on friendships this month as they may be going through a period of confusion and not be dependable.
Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini – Late Gemini may be feeling fatigue due to Saturn being in opposition and Neptune in square to their Sun – life force and vitality. These are great aspects however, if you are involved in creative projects that require steady focus and concentration. Friendships of the opposite sex may take on a somewhat unexpected and passionate quality this month.

Cancer Astrological Symbol
Cancer – Watch your health this month especially bones, lower back and teeth. Stress may be the cause of any problems in these areas. Pluto is about 2/3 of the way through your 7th house of marriage and partnership, so much of what needed to be let go of or transformed may be completed and you are in the stage of regenerating or rejuvenating your relationships.
Leo Astrological Sign
Leo – You may find yourself in an unusually sensitive state this month. If you are involved in the study of a subject with a high learning curve or intense practice of creative endeavors, you could find that your body doesn’t like too much socializing or external stimulation, since so much is transpiring internally. Friends or family may want too much of your time.
Virgo Astrological Symbol
Virgo – You’re being pushed, pulled, cajoled, and guided toward your heart’s desire this month, if you will trust and let go into the unknown. What’s the worst that could happen ~ CHANGE ~ not a bad thing ~ except in the beginning, before you surrender to it. Don’t go overboard with spending this month, focus on increasing not depleting finances.

libra Astrological Symbol
Libra – Jupiter has been in your first house for many months now. There is an old wives’ tale, or in this case an old astrologers tale, that if you don’t expand and grow emotionally, mentally, and spiritually while Jupiter is in your first house that you will expand physically. Or, the scale tells the tale of how you have used this energy to grow into a greater version of yourself. Good opportunities for love and affection from those you love this month.

Scorpio Astrological Sign
Scorpio – Investments in oil, alcohol, film or entertainment are not apt to turn the profit you expect. Wait until March when things can be seen more clearly. Beliefs may be at odds with the realities at work right now, but going deeper into the understanding of the psychology of the problem could bring relief and positive changes.
Sagittarius Astrological Sign
Sagittarius – You may be feeling the push of Uranus to take risks and try new ideas and people while Jupiter is pulling you to do more and more to further your life long goals and Saturn is blessing you with excellent hibernation energy. It’s a bit of a push, pull, stop paradox, which means you may have to carefully balance all three to keep your sanity. Yes, you like to do all or nothing, but this month you may have to do a bit of all carefully.
Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn – Don’t let siblings confuse or talk you into something nebulous that you don’t feel comfortable with. Home and immediate family seem to have greater passion and affection. Surprises both elevating and depressing could come in rapid succession. Stay balanced and grounded by realizing that what appears to be a disaster often turns out for the best and what you perceive as good fortune may not be as good as you think it is.

Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius – Double check facts and figures – financial clarity may go walk-about this month. Enjoy the surprises that may come from friends, networking with new people or a possible new love interest coming into your life through travel or education or spiritual practice. Travel as much as possible this month as it brings much positive energy into your life.

Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces – Don’t get too exuberant with spending this month even if you may have received a bonus or a raise. Unexpected expenses may come up so put some away for a rainy day or a broken dishwasher. Friendships may feel distant or distracted but don’t take it personally. Friends may be coping with their very own cloud of confusion at the moment. Greater responsibility or more focused work may be required of you. Taking it on willingly and joyfully can lead to greater personal power and satisfaction.

About Victoria: The passion I have for Astrology began when I was twenty-four. I had been traveling in Europe for months and was becoming more and more curious about the letters my mom was sending me. They were waiting for me in each city or town I went to and it was as if she had a spy following me. She seemed to know my every move. Then she started to give me advice about what was coming up and what to watch out for. Coming home, I was horrified to learn that both she and my dad (LT. Colonel in the Air Force) were involved in Astrology. I asked them how two well-educated and intelligent people could possibly believe a superstitious myth that was so lacking in any proof of its claims. My dad said he had no belief in it. It worked, so he used it, much like electricity – we don’t believe in it, don’t know exactly how it works, but are happy to turn on the lights with it.

So I set out to prove that they were deluded. After three years of study in San Francisco and taking a correspondence course from a school in England, I apologized.
Astrology has been part of my life ever since and has led to my involvement with researchers and teachers in the human potential movement, such as Jean Houston (Institute for Mind Research), Werner Erhardt (EST), Elmer Green (Duke University), Joe Kamiya (early researcher in bio-feedback), Swami Rama (Himalayan Institute) and others.

Sun sign astrology obviously doesn’t give the depth of knowledge available in a full reading. Each chart is unique, like snowflakes. But it’s fun and entertaining. Hope you get both from this column. You can get in touch with Victoria at 435-259-9417 or
