Your Monthly Horoscope for November 2014
 by Victoria Fugit 

The Cosmic Dance between Uranus and Pluto has not yet ended. It will be with us well into 2019 and the overall effects will be felt throughout the entire century. This is a long term transformational cycle and it has an interesting commonality with the Mayan Calendar.
Uranus takes 82 to 84 years to complete a full cycle around the Sun. Pluto, because of its highly elliptical orbit has a cycle of about 248 years. So, to come around to this aspect again takes around 5,120 years. The Mayan Long Count Calendar describes numbers of cycles through which the humans must pass, in order to reach a stage of growth in which we have a conscious change that propels us into a new way of experiencing reality – a new way of experiencing the very basic fundamentals of emotions, matter and life. The totality of these cycles equals the Great Cycle and is 5,125 years.
The last square between Uranus (Aries = me first, pioneering spirit, new inventions) and Pluto (Cancer, home, family, security) occurred in the 1930s bringing societal and economic upheaval, the rise of bootlegging and organized crime, widespread hunger, and the Dustbowl.
This square comes out of the Uranus/Pluto conjunction in Virgo (practical, modest, orderly, need to work, communication, earthy) in the Sixties, a period of social disruption, new, revolutionary ideas, the Vietnam War, streakers (for those too young to know, the practice of ditching one’s clothing and racing across football fields or any large gathering of people, just for the fun of it—Google it), political unrest and confrontation, the microchip (about to revolutionize information), the pop music revolution, free love, mind-expanding drugs, hippies, peacenicks, street rioting around the world and civil unrest, as well as rapid technological change.
Conjunctions set ideals, squares have the power to put them in motion. This square dance occurs seven times, quite unusual in itself. In the first six either Uranus or Pluto is retrograde. The first six let us know the Universe has serious intent for change. In a personal chart a life changing aspect will often make three passes, the first two you will KNOW something has to change, but usually will not take action until the third and last pass. The last three exact squares of this cycle will be November 1, December 15, 2014 and March 17, 2015. In the last exact square both planets are direct and full power.

Here are some ideas that took hold in me during the 60’s and seem even more relevant now.
1. Change is the new normal. Change is the only constant in the Universe.
2. Don’t be shocked by anything that happens on the planet
3. Expect unexpected benevolent change
4. Find commonality, develop tolerance
5. Love the family, especially your biological family – might be hard in some cases, but the more you let go of judgment the more likely they are to become more likeable..

Aries Astrological Symbol
Aries – A lovely trine between Jupiter and Uranus gives the gift of innovative optimism. Let go of chaotic behavior and opt for creativity and possibly unexpected love. Joy and spontaneity are the keys to getting the most out of this month.

Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus – Pluto and Mars are trine your Sun this month giving strength, boldness and power to your ideas and projects. For those born between the 15th and the 20th of May, Saturn is still in opposition and can lower your energy or cause delays and setbacks. No matter this is a positive restructuring of goals.
Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini – Sextiles of opportunity from Jupiter and Uranus light up your houses of communications and friendships. You may have a friend who is on a difficult journey with unexpected turns and twists. Be patient, kind, and understanding.
Cancer Astrological Symbol Cancer– You’ve either learned to surf the waves of Uranus /Pluto square or you may still be fighting against the changes. With the Sun, Saturn and Neptune bolstering you intuition, love and creativity, and Jupiter in your house of money, give yourself a vacation this month from worry. Find what makes you happy.
Leo Astrological Sign Leo – Jupiter on your Sun expands your life and unexpected trips expand your horizons. Don’t hold back because of old patterns. Leo rules the dramatic, playful and child-like enjoyment of life. You’re only young, middle-aged or old once. Enjoy, and go for whatever surprises life brings you this month.
Virgo Astrological Symbol Virgo – Sun, Venus, Mercury and Saturn are in your house of communication and family visits. Expect some disappointment or delay as well as much chatter and visiting the first half of the month. These planets then light up your home life and give opportunity for introspection and deeper understanding of what gives pleasure in your life.
libra Astrological Symbol Libra – Marriage and partnership may still be an issue along with transforming your home or emotional foundations. Count on your friendships to keep you in balance and new relationships to come into your life. There is no rule saying you have to be perfect or have it all together to have good things come into your life.
Scorpio Astrological Sign Scorpio – Saturn has been lowering your energy for a while and by now, you probably realize that it has slowed you down in order to restructure the way you have approached life. Pluto and Neptune are deepening your intuition and personal power, Saturn shows their best use for you and others in your life. I won’t tell you to be playful, but may I suggest more creativity, whether musical, artistic or just the way you deal with your children.
Sagittarius Astrological Sign Sagittarius – Things lighten up considerably this month. Jupiter and Uranus in a great aspect to your Sun along with Venus and Mercury can bring unexpected opportunities to make your life easier than it has been. Set your intentions this month then watch for the initial signs of the Universe manifesting exactly what you want.
Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn – Watch out for power plays and temper this month. Walk away from conflict. Don’t let frustration and misunderstandings undermine relationships. Your home or immediate environment could undergo some dramatic and unexpected changes. Use your intuition which should be greater than usual, now.
Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius – You’ve got great ideas and this is the month to start figuring out how to implement them. Saturn has been a bit of a drag at work lately but will soon be leaving that part of your chart. Leo is in your house of partnership, opening possibilities in that area and Uranus is either giving you inspiration or making you ditzy, your choice.

Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces – With Neptune in your first house it is easy to just drift along with the current. Don’t waste an opportunity this month to fulfill your dreams. It will take some work, but Pluto is pushing you forward.

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
