Your Monthly Horoscope for July 2015
 by Victoria Fugit 

The question we left off with last month was “where do we go from here? What can we expect as these revolutionary and transformative energies play out globally and personally?” Although we have reached the end of the EXACT square of Uranus and Pluto, these two will still be within a square aspect until early April of 2016. Pluto will be in Capricorn through 2023, so we can expect more unrest, violence, social and political revolution, as well as, unimaginable scientific and technological discoveries and advances that will radically change our world.

However, just as we could not have predicted in 1966 the impact the ‘60s would have on world history, we cannot predict the overall impact or events resulting from this cycle of time in history any more clearly. These aspects are still unfolding and it will take years to put this major shake-up into perspective.

The main differences between now and the Uranus/ Pluto aspects of the 1960s are; Jupiter trines Uranus (Jupiter-Uranus aspects bring liberal uprisings) and Saturn will also trine Uranus; even when Jupiter goes into Virgo and eventually trines Pluto it comes in very short bursts and will still be parallel to Uranus; overall the greater energy goes to Uranus rather than Pluto.

Most striking to me, beside the opposition of Pluto (transformation) to the US sun (individuality), is the transit of Saturn (restructuring) over the ascendant of the US chart. The last house a planet goes through before crossing the ascendant is the 12th house. In Saturn Transit by Erin Sullivan, she states, “The twelfth house is the house of the ‘collective unconscious’; it is the house where the psyche is most deeply connected to symbolic images and archetypes.” The Saturn transit “results in a slow disintegration of the ego’s power over the persona and a battle with the shadow (Pluto). …Saturn over the ascendant can be experienced as an extremely dramatic shift from ‘who (or what) you used to be’ to ‘who (or what) you will be’, but with a rather traumatic period of uncertainty (Pluto) while the no longer useful persona is sloughed off.” Saturn crosses the U.S. ascendant in October 2016 and stays in the 1st house for about 3 years.

We now have a new phenomenon. – digital communication. Now, revolutions and sudden changes (Uranus) in society and consciousness are happening more rapidly, due to the instantaneous nature of digital communication. Now we have greater choice in what we will create with astrological energies. Most of us will not be able to individually change things at the societal level. However, we can make choices and changes at the individual level. And as our individual (Uranus) changes connect with others, those changes create larger and larger ripples. In Jung’s last book, The Undiscovered Self, he said that global issues won’t be solved by politicians and peace treaties. The salvation of the world will come from the salvation of the individuals living in it. We are at a time in history where the individual can make differences in the collective and astrologically we are also at a choice point. Choose well and for the good of all and let’s discover a new world.
The Summer Solstice July starts with a full moon on the 1st. and is finishing up issues from June.

Aries Astrological Symbol
Aries – The full moon of July 1st brings some difficulties in either work or home and family. Stay cool don’t lose your temper and by the middle of the month you should be your happy self again. Plan some summer fun and put your heart into cheering others on making the lives of others easier.

Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus –You may be a bit dissatisfied with something about your home until the 15th. Just remember you can’t usually have everything exactly the way you want it all the time. Call on that lovely Taurean mellowness and enjoy all the joys of the great physical vitality you have right now, the communications which could bring money, unexpectedly and the almost magical relationship with nature this month.
Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini – Your love of talking and communication in general could result in opportunities coming from friends or neighbors. Your overall optimism this month draws in unexpected good ideas or innovations at work that could open new path ways of creativity. Mars in your second house suggests you be somewhat thrifty because there may be unexpected and necessary home expenditures.

Cancer Astrological Symbol
Cancer – Mars conjunct the Sun and Pluto/Moon oppose can make you more than a little touchy this month. If you were born in the first two weeks of the month, be careful what you say to those close to you as you may hurt them without thinking. Money flows well this month and your intuition is strong. Pay attention to what is working and allow other to be and do whoever and whatever and watch how an uncomfortable situations can change.
Leo Astrological Sign
Leo – Leo, you still have Jupiter (expansion, abundance) AND Venus (charm, friendship, social gatherings) in your Sun sign, along with Uranus bringing innovation and excitement to your summer. What more could you ask for? Well, Pluto has some information for you. Pluto is in an inconjunct aspect to your Sun (if you’re born in the middle of Leo). This aspect pushes you to understand and compromise. Sharing and giving seem to be the only solutions to the dilemma posed by this aspect.
Virgo Astrological Symbol
Virgo – Except for a few minor annoyances, this month seems to flow smoothly for you. Home and family keep you busy, friends are supportive and caring. You feel a slow transformation taking place inside you and sense that you are becoming a different person. Let go of the past and start creating your future. It’s OK to be a little nebulous right now, but pay attention to your physical surroundings so you don’t create accidents.
libra Astrological Symbol
Libra –Late Libras may be having difficulty in career and financial sectors. Wait until late September to make big decisions and in the meantime give some attention to the smaller things on your bucket list. Letting go of worry and enjoying what is now is the key to making good decisions. Things will change this fall.
Scorpio Astrological Sign
Scorpio – Late Scorpios have Saturn moving back into their Sun sign, finishing up any details of restructuring your sense of self that it may have forgotten over the past two years. Its next great opus, starting in September, will be the reorganization of you financial priorities and the manner in which you manifest physical reality. Yauzaa! Big job. Be grateful that Saturn is working on it and you aren’t left on your own to figure it out. This month, keep your mind and heart open for new opportunities or adventures.
Sagittarius Astrological Sign
Sagittarius – Your trust level and optimism have been beaten down a bit lately. You are going through some deep, possibly unconscious, changes that leave you a little disoriented. Find and enjoy the humor and sometimes absurdity of your mindset right now. You will and always have landed on your feet. July has Jupiter, Venus and Uranus in good aspect to your Sun. It should be a good month for you to travel. Short or long trips can bring opportunities or benefits. Go for it.
Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn – The full Moon in your sign on July 1st sets a tone for you for the month. -- you are a bit more emotional than usual, unexpected calls from family members may surprise, more support from your partner, some worry (unwarranted) about finances and health. Mid-month your partner may have issues that are difficult and the frustration could lead to anger. Don’t take it personally, try to be more understanding.

Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius – Pay attention to health – dehydration may be a problem, if you are working too much and not caring for yourself. Any financial plans should be checked more than once. Social celebrations, plays concerts can all bring positive new and more expanded concepts of yourself. If you are just work, work, working – STOP it and put more joy into your life.

Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces – Humor, children, creativity and paying attention to your heightened intuition are the things which nurture you this month. This July is overall a lovely summer month for you. Resist overspending on children, hobbies, or entertainment, as it could make the winter more difficult. Be open to good fortune if it comes your way – victimization should not be an option.

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
